  •          The selected order together with a “Reference Number,” which the USER will use to identify his or her order.

 

  •          The final amount for the order and the corresponding VAT at the time at which the contract is formed.

 

  •          In the event that the order involves a promotion, the previous price together with the reduced price will be indicated clearly.

 

  •          The total for shipping costs.

 

  •          An estimated delivery date for the order.

 

In the event that the USER is not satisfied with the order and/or its conditions, he or she may cancel and/or modify the order by contacting PROMOPRESS via the email address provided for that purpose, and under the forms, time frames and conditions set forth in these conditions.

  

9.9.            Payment Form and Security

The USER may pay for his or her order using Visa, Mastercard or PayPal.

 

In the event that the POS (Point-of-Sale Terminal) reports that the card has been refused, the order will be cancelled automatically, and the user will be informed of the cancellation by email.

 

For payments made with cards issued outside of Spain, it is necessary for the issuing bank to be enrolled in the Secure Electronic Commerce (SEC) security protocol. Payments made using cards that do not meet this requirement will not be accepted.

 

The proof of purchase that the USER will receive by email once the purchase has been confirmed is a substitute for an invoice for tax and manufacturer’s warranty purposes. However, he or she may request an invoice in the purchase process; to do so, the user must provide his or her NIF, first and last names or business name, and billing address. Once the purchase has been completed  PROMOPRESS will send an electronic invoice to the USER’s email address.

 

Purchases made by credit card are performed completely securely. PROMOPRESS’s server uses SSL encryption technology, and all payment operations are conducted via secure platforms, thus ensuring the privacy and confidentiality of the data provided.

 

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology allows all personal data requested in a transaction, such as the USER’s name, address or credit card number, to be transmitted securely. Encryption is the coding of data in such a way that only those involved in a transaction can read them. Encryption prevents external individuals from intercepting transactions and discovering their contents.

 

9.10.        Shipping

Shipping of deliveries within the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) will be undertaken by the transport company GLS Spain ; international orders will be undertaken by UPS.

 

Shipments to Ceuta, Melilla, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands will be undertaken by GLS Spain too.

 

Except for the acquisition of digital products, the other products will incur shipping costs.

The conditions, time and cost of shipping will depend on the country of destination, the weight and volume of the order, which will be specified before confirming the purchase and shipping of the selected order.

 

Import duties, fees and taxes are not included in the item price or shipping costs. These charges are borne by the buyer and should not be confused as additional shipping costs. Consult the customs authorities of your country to determine the value of these additional costs before bidding for an item or buying it.

  

9.11.        Order Delivery

The USER will receive the order at the address listed for that purpose. If there is an error in the address stated, PROMOPRESS disclaims all liability; in such case the USER should directly contact the courier company in order to provide the correct delivery information for the order and, where applicable, assume the additional costs that may arise.

 

The USER receiving the order must notify the courier company of any change in the delivery address to one that differs from the stated address, doing so at his or her own risk.

 

The receiving USER also undertakes to ensure that there is always someone available for delivery or for quick retrieval of the goods from the postal and/or courier company.

 

If the goods are damaged, the USER should immediately notify the postal and/or courier company. The insurance company of the postal and/or courier company will indicate the actions to be taken to the receiving USER. The receiving USER must also retain the goods and all packaging and labelling.

 

Orders will be delivered to the address specified by the USER during the purchase process on the website. In the event that no one is available during delivery, GLS Spain for Spanish deliveries  or UPS for international ones will send a notification text message and provide a contact telephone number so that the USER may request a new delivery at a time suitable for him or her. The second delivery will take place on the date agreed over the phone. If it is not possible to complete the delivery during this second attempt, the USER’s order will be deposited at the closest GLS (Spanish deliveries) or UPS (international deliveries) agency, to the USER’s delivery address; the USER may collect it from this location within a period of 10 days.

 

In the event of any problem or query regarding the conditions, USERS may contact PROMOPRESS at mail@promopress.es

   

9.12.        Changes and Returns

Editorial products cannot be returned unless they are defective.

 

If USERS have any questions, they should contact PROMOPRESS at mail@promopress.es

 

9.13.        Defective Products

In the event that a product is defective, the USER will inform PROMOPRESS and send the product to it so that PROMOPRESS may assess and evaluate the defect.

 

The shipping costs for defective products will be borne by PROMOPRESS.

 

Once PROMOPRESS has examined the defect, it will inform the user by email within a period of 30 days of its decision as to whether or not a refund and/or replacement for the product will be issued.

 

The refund and/or replacement will be effected as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days from the date on which the decision is sent out.

 

In the event that a defective product cannot be replaced, the money amount paid will be refunded, including the costs involved in delivery of the defective product. The refund will be issued in the same payment form as that used to make the purchase.

  

9.14.        Products in stock

In the event that the stock of a purchased product has run out, PROMOPRESS will contact the USER via his or her email address to offer another similar product, inform him or her of when the product will be available or offer to cancel the order, refunding the amount paid within a maximum period of 30 days, by the same means of payment chosen at the time of purchase.

  

9.15.        Formation of the purchase contract

The information contained in the GENERAL CONDITIONS and SPECIAL CONDITIONS does not constitute an offer to sell but an invitation to treat. No contract will exist between the USER and PROMOPRESS in connection with any product until the USER’s order has been expressly confirmed by PROMOPRESS, by means of the receipt by email of the Purchase Confirmation, at which time the Purchase Contract will be formed.

 

If the USER’s offer is not accepted and a charge has already been made to his or her account, the amount will be repaid in full.
