Who you are contracting with:
Lay-out of these T&C: These T&C apply to your use of, and purchases made on, the Website and are divided into various sections as follows:
The Puzzle Place Products & Availability
Identification of Puzzle Place products: Product listings which do not specify the name of a third party seller, are products offered for sale by The Puzzle Place.
Placing a product in a shopping basket or adding it to a wishlist without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an agreement of sale and/or an order for such product, and as such, the Puzzle Place may remove such product from the shopping basket or wishlist if stock becomes unavailable and you cannot hold the Puzzle Place liable if such product is not available when the purchase cycle is completed at a later stage.
An agreement of sale only comes into effect if and when (a) you electronically submit a properly completed order for one or more products in your shopping basket; and (b) payment is either authorised, or received by the Puzzle Place in its bank account.
Termination of Sales & Cancellation of Orders
Prices: The price of each product is displayed with the product listing. In the event of a sale or special offer, the discounted price is displayed.
Delivery Charges: Delivery charges differ depending on a variety of factors, including product type, price, and weight, as well as whether delivery is to be made within, or outside, the borders of South Africa. Please see details of the Puzzle Place’s delivery charges here.
Value Added Tax: Value added tax at the rate of 14% is charged on goods bought by South African residents. VAT is not payable on orders if both the billing and the shipping address are international.
Import Duties: Import duties may be payable by recipients of goods in foreign countries. The Puzzle Place does not know what import duties/levies may be payable and cannot calculate or estimate such costs. You are responsible for determining whether any such import duties/levies are payable and, if so, the amount thereof.
Errors: The Puzzle Place shall take all reasonable efforts to accurately indicate prices and delivery charges. However, should products be erroneously offered at incorrect prices and/or delivery charges, the Puzzle Place will not be obliged to sell products at such incorrect prices and/or delivery charges, but shall refund monies paid by you should you not wish to proceed with the purchase at the correct price and/or delivery charge.
