These Terms and Conditions are the only ones applicable to the use of this website and supersede any others, except with the prior express written consent of the Seller.
These Terms and Conditions are as important for You as they are for us. They have been written to create a legally binding agreement between us in order to protect both your rights as a customer and our rights as a company.
When placing an order, You declare that you have read and fully accept the Terms and Conditions.

By placing an order through this website, You state that you are 18 or older and that you have the legal capacity to enter into binding contracts.
3.- HOW IS THE CONTRACT FORMALIZED?
The information and details contained in this website do not constitute an offer of sale but an invitation to do business.
There will be no contract between us in connection with any product until your order has been expressly accepted by us (even if your account has already been charged).
If your offer is not accepted and you have already been charged you will be refunded in full.
To place an order, you must follow the online purchase procedure and click the “Authorise payment” button. Once the order is placed, you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of the order (the “Order Confirmation”).
Please note that this does not mean your order has been accepted, it merely constitutes an offer you have made to us to buy one or more items. All orders are subject to acceptance by us and we will confirm our acceptance by sending an email to inform you that the product is being sent (the “Shipping Confirmation”).
The product purchase contract between us (Contract) will only come into effect when we send you the Shipping Confirmation.
Only the products detailed in the Shipping Confirmation will be subject to the contract.
We are not obliged to provide you with any other product included in the order until we confirm shipment of that product in a separate Shipping Confirmation.
4.- PRODUCT AVAILABILITY
All product orders are subject to availability and, as such, if lack of stock means we are unable to fulfil your order within 21 calendar days, We reserve the right to supply you with information about substitute products, of equal or superior quality, that you may choose to receive instead.
If you do not want to order the substitute products or do not accept the estimated date of manufacture and shipment of your product, we will refund any amount you may have paid.

The items for sale on masterchop.net are covered by a two-year legal warranty for faults, in accordance with the Ley General para la Defensa de los Consumidores y Usuarios (Consumer Protection Act).

Products that do not conform to those stipulated in the contract shall be deemed as such by that which is set forth in Article 116 of the Ley General para la Defensa de Consumidores y Usuarios (Consumer Protection Act).
Consumers are only covered by the legal warranty if they can provide proof of purchase.
The consumer has the right to request free-of-charge repair or replacement under the same terms that regulate the return of faulty goods.
6.- REFUSAL TO PROCESS AN ORDER
We reserve the right to remove any Product on this website at any time and/or to remove or modify any item or content on the website.

We will not be liable to you or any third party for the withdrawal of any product on this website, regardless of whether the product has been sold or not, or for the removal or modification of any item or content on the website, or for refusing to process an order after we have sent the Order Confirmation.
Without prejudice to the provisions set out in Clause 4 above, and except in the case of extraordinary circumstances, we will try to deliver the products detailed in the Shipping Confirmation within a maximum of 21 working days.

To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all warranties except those that cannot be legitimately excluded from consumers.
The ITEMS we sell, especially ITEMS made from precious metals, may have unique characteristics as a result of their artisan production.

You can only use this material if we or the person or entity that gave us the authority to use it expressly authorizes you to do so. This does not prevent you from using this website to copy information about your order or contact details when necessary.
15.- COMMUNICATIONS IN WRITING
The current regulations require some information or communications to be made in writing.
By using this website, You accept that most of the communications between us will be done electronically.

We can convey, assign, encumber, sub-contract or otherwise transfer a contract or any of the rights and obligations arising from it, for our benefit, at any time during the term of the contract.
For the avoidance of doubt, such transmissions, assignments, encumbrances or other transfers shall not affect your legally recognized rights as a consumer, nor does it cancel, reduce, or limit in any way the express or implied warranties we have issued.
18.- EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL
We cannot be held liable for any failure or delay in complying with our contractual obligations when that failure or delay is due to events beyond our reasonable control (“Force Majeure”).

We will make every reasonable effort to bring about the end of the Force Majeure event or to find a way of fulfilling our contractual obligations despite it.
If, during the term of a contract, we decide not to insist on strict compliance with any of its obligations or with any of these Terms and Conditions, or if we decide not to exercise any of the rights or resources we are contractually entitled to exercise or claim,
this shall not constitute a waiver of those rights or resources or exempt you from fulfilling those obligations.
Any contractual waivers we choose to make shall not constitute a waiver on our behalf of any of your future contractual obligations.
No waiver by us of any of these Terms and Conditions shall take effect, unless it is expressly communicated to you in writing, in accordance with the provisions of the previous section on notifications.
If any of these Terms and Conditions or any provision of a contract is invalidated, declared illegal or in some way unenforceable by the competent authority, it will be separated from the remaining Terms, Conditions, and provisions, which will continue to be valid insofar as the law permits.
21. – ENTIRETY OF THE CONTRACT
These Terms and Conditions and any document expressly relating to them constitute the entire agreement between us in relation to the object of the Contract and supersede any other pact, agreement, or earlier pledge agreed between us, whether verbally or in writing.
Both parties declare that they have entered into this Contract without having relied on any statement or promise made by the other party or anything that could be inferred from any statement or written text during negations between them prior to the
Contract, except that which is expressly mentioned in the present Terms and Conditions.
Neither You nor us shall have any remedy in respect of any untrue statement made by the other, whether orally or in writing, prior to the date of any Contract (unless the untrue statement was made fraudulently) and the only remedy available to the other party shall be for breach of contract in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
