When you use the website, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer to prevent unauthorized access to your account. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You should take all necessary steps to ensure that the password is kept confidential and secure and should tell us immediately if you have any reason to believe that your password could have become known to anyone else, or if the password is being, or is likely to be, used in an unauthorized manner.
Please ensure that the details you provide us with are correct and complete and let us know of any changes to the information that you provided when registering. Paolita reserves the right to refuse access to the website, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders at our discretion. If we cancel an order, it will be without charge to you.
VAT: If you are in the UK, prices will be shown inclusive of VAT (where applicable) at the current rate. If the country of shipment is outside the UK but within the EU and dependent territories, prices will be shown inclusive of VAT. All other countries are shown a price excluding VAT as no VAT will be due on these orders.
Please note that your order may be subject to import duties and taxes over which we have no control as they are levied by your tax and customs office. As the customer and importer of the goods, you will be responsible for these charges. Import duties or tax costs will be invoiced to you directly from the appointed forwarder. We recommend you contact your local customs authority to determine a landed cost price prior to purchase completion. Paolita is not responsible for any delays on goods that have been held back as a result of procedures carried out by your local customs authorities.
Paolita has added the feature of viewing the prices in EUR and USD via the currency converter tab within the shop section of the website. The currency converter is directly linked to the Forex and rates used are in real time, however the product prices in currencies other than in GBP are only indicative. When making a purchase with your credit card and/or a paypal account, you will be debited in GBP regardless of the currency selected and the GBP equivalent of the currency your account is held in will be debited from your account. The rates used will vary and depend on the spot rates applied by your credit card/account provider.
Paolita allows orders to be processed online, or over the phone, using a valid credit or debit card.
Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon receipt of an order acknowledgement email. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. Your credit card company may undertake an additional security check to confirm it is you making the order. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to Paolita, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.
