Please note that completion of the online checkout process does not constitute Our acceptance of your offer to purchase products or services from Us. Our acceptance of your order, which creates a contract between you and Us, will take place only when We confirm your order by email. Prior to despatch of the products, We have the right to decline or cancel an order for any reason, including legal and regulatory reasons.
The contract that is created between you and Us in respect of any order you place through the Website incorporates these Terms and Conditions.
The duration of Our contract with you will start from when We confirm your Order and lasts until We decline or cancel your order or, if We despatch the products, the last day of your right to return the products (you can find more information on your Right to Cancel below).
If We cannot supply you with the products you ordered, We will not process your order and inform you of this in writing (via email) and, if you have already paid for the product, We will refund you in full as soon as reasonably possible, but in any event no later than 14 days after receipt of your payment.
If the fulfilment of an order (or any aspect of it) would be illegal or unlawful, including by reason of breach of export controls or sanctions rules or if you are under the age of 18 and order alcoholic products, We have the right to stop or cease to fulfil the order at any time, including after despatch of products or the notification to you that the order has been received and is being processed. You acknowledge that We will not incur any liability in such circumstances.
Accepted Payment Methods
You may pay by debit card, credit card or another alternative payment method specified as part of the checkout process. VLM may change the payment methods at any time but this will not affect any existing order.
The price of the products you order will be the price indicated on the order pages when you place your order.
The price of all goods sold by VLM via the Website are in Euro (€), includes VAT at the applicable rate but does not include the cost of delivering the goods.
We use our best efforts to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However, it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products We sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, We will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, We will contact you for your instructions before We accept your order.
If you place an order on the Website, then you acknowledge and agree that: (i) We will charge you through the payment method you have selected for your order and such other amounts that may accrue in connection with the order; (ii) that you will provide valid and current information for (a) yourself and (b) if applicable, another person, but only if you have first obtained their express consent to do so; (iii) that VLM may use tools, software or services of payment processors to process transactions on our behalf; and (iv) if your payment is not received by Us for any reason from your card issuer, you agree to promptly pay all amounts due upon request and using the method that We reasonably prescribe.
Delivery charges and timescales vary depending on the type of products ordered, the service you select and the delivery address.
You will be able to see the delivery charge in the order page when you place your order. We will inform you of the estimated date for delivery of the goods via e-mail. If no fixed date or timeline has been communicated to you, our deliveries are performed within a maximum period of 30 days. If We do not deliver your products within this maximum period of 30 days, you may ask Us to perform the delivery within an additional period that is reasonable under the circumstances. If We do not deliver your products within this additional period, You are entitled to terminate your contract with Us and get full refund.
Where the supply of your products is delayed or prevented for reasons beyond our control (for example, material shortages, import delays or higher than anticipated demand), We will make every effort to keep you informed but will be under no liability to you for such delay or failure. For the avoidance of doubt, this paragraph does not exclude or effect in any way any statutory right that is afforded to you to cancel an order when a product is delayed or not provided.
Delivery of the goods will take place when We deliver them to the address that you gave to Us. If delivery cannot be made to the address you gave to us, including due to the recipient not being present at the address at the time allotted by the carrier or if the recipient refuses to accept the products, We reserve the right to deduct the cost for returning products back to Us from the refund for the order.
All risk in the products you order (including risk of loss or damage to the products) will pass to you when they are delivered to the delivery address specified in your order or when you or a carried organised by you collect them from Us.

In such case, we will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery cost, but we may make certain deductions from the price, as described below.
This right to cancel does not apply to certain products such as:
Where We deliver products to a third party in accordance with your order, you will only be able to exercise this cancellation right if you can return the goods to Us.

You may also use the model cancellation form (but you do not have to), which can be found at the end of this page.
You must take reasonable care of the goods while in your possession. You must send back all goods relating to the cancelled contract to Us, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation of the contract to Us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning any goods to Us. Products should be returned in or with their original packaging. You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the unnecessary handling of the goods in excess of what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
Once We receive your parcel or you provide Us evidence of having sent back the products, whichever is earlier, We will process your refund. We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment. However, We will not refund any supplementary costs if you have expressly opted for a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered at checkout and We may withhold from the refund the amount that corresponds to any reduction in the value of the returned products resulting from the use or handling of the products by you (except from handling that is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products).
