Terms and Conditions
These are the terms and conditions upon which we, Altaterra Kft (sometimes referred to below as “ALTATERRA”) will process and accept from you orders for products from this online shop. ALTATERRA is a company registered in Hungary with registration number 08-09-013626. Its registered address is Malom köz 1, 9431 Fertőd, Hungary. Its registered VAT number is GB 875250805.
These terms and conditions are binding and you should read them carefully; particularly the provisions dealing with prices, delivery terms, liability, rights of withdrawal/cancellation and effects of withdrawal/cancellation.
These terms and conditions are supplemented by the applicable legal rules regarding contracts for the supply of products. You may have additional rights under those rules.
If you have any queries or concerns about these terms and conditions, please do not hesitate to contact ALTATERRA. Our contact details are firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to proceed with an order, please read these terms and conditions and check off the box to confirmation of your acceptance of these terms and conditions.
By placing an order, you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age. The contract between you and us is conditional on you being at least 18 years of age. This means that if you are not at least 18 years of age we will have no obligation to you, even if we send you an order confirmation.
We can accept and process your order no matter where you are located. However, when placing your order, you must specify an address for delivery of the goods that is within the United Kingdom. We will have no obligation to deliver goods to any address outside the United Kingdom mainland, such as the Channel Islands, as well as the British Overseas Territories.
By placing your order, you accept the following:
- That these terms and conditions shall apply to your order and form part of the contract between you and us.
- The prices and costs as stated in this online shop, as confirmed to you during the ordering process.
- That we may transmit data concerning your credit card or debit card for the purpose of handling your order.
How will I know my order has been received?
Upon receiving your order, we will send you an e-mail acknowledgement to let you know that your order has been received. When we have checked our stock and can confirm that we can fulfil your order request, we will send you an order confirmation via e-mail. A legally binding contract between you and us is formed when you receive our order confirmation.
However, our order confirmation, and the contract, will be conditional upon the approval of your credit or debit card (see below under "How do I pay?"). If your card is not approved, then there will be no contract and we will have no obligation to you.
If you do not receive an order confirmation within a reasonable time, please contact us. We will try to attend to your order promptly, but we will not be responsible for delay caused by problems or faults in electronic communication systems beyond our control.
What is the price of the goods?
The purchase price is the price in force at the time you place your order. The price of the products you order, delivery charges if any, and the total of your purchase will always be confirmed to you during the ordering process and in the order confirmation. Please note that if we have made an obvious error in pricing on products on the website, we are not bound by that incorrect price.
How do I pay?
Payment may be made with VISA, VISA Debit, MASTERCARD or MAESTRO. You will be asked to submit the name on your card, your card number, expiry date and if applicable card issue number and three-digit security number. This information is transmitted via high-level encryption directly to the bank to verify that your credit or debit card is valid. Once your card is approved, we will send you an order confirmation via e-mail. Your credit or debit card will be charged on the day we send your order. You can also pay with PayPal or Bank Transfer.
Delivery of the goods
We will attend to your order as soon as possible. It is our legal obligation to send the products to you before 30 days after your order has been confirmed. We will however send the products as soon as possible.
If our supply of the products to you is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.
Your legal rights
You have legal rights, in addition to your rights under these terms and conditions, should any product supplied by us be faulty or incorrectly described. Goods are considered faulty if (a) they are not of satisfactory quality (i.e. they do not meet the standard that a reasonable person would consider satisfactory, taking account of our description of the goods, the price and any other relevant circumstances) or (b) they are not fit for a particular purpose for which you require them and which you made known to us before placing your order or at the time of placing your order.
We try to render the colours of our products as realistically as possible. However, we will not be responsible for possible deviations between the colours rendered by your computing equipment and the actual colours of our products.
Nothing in these terms and conditions shall limit your legal rights.
If any product delivered to you is faulty you must notify us without undue delay. You will be entitled to have the product repaired by us free of charge or alternatively to receive a free replacement of the faulty product, if this does not cause disproportionate costs to us. If the faulty product is not capable of repair, you are entitled to a free replacement of the product. We are always entitled to replace a faulty product, instead of repairing it, unless it causes disproportionate costs for you.
Regardless of the remedies just mentioned, if any product delivered to you is faulty or misdescribed, you have the right to cancel the contract and to receive a full refund, including your reasonable costs of returning the product to us.
If we fail to comply with the contract, we are responsible for any loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of the contract. Loss or damage is foreseeable if it is an obvious consequence of our breach or if it was reasonably contemplated by both you and us at the time the contract was made.
We do not in any way exclude or limit our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
The terms of the guarantee are set out in the separate SOLSTRO Guarantees available on our home page. The guarantee for VELUX products can be found here .The terms of the guarantee do not in any way affect your legal rights.
Right of withdrawal/cancellation
You have the legal right to withdraw from/cancel the contract within fourteen (14) days without giving any reason, however; RoofWindows.co.uk provides you – as a courtesy - a total of sixty (60) days to withdraw/cancel the contract.
The withdrawal period will expire sixty (60) days after the day on which you (or someone you nominate) receives the goods that you ordered or - if the contract relates to multiple products ordered by you in one order and delivered by us separately - sixty (60) days after the day on which you (or someone you nominate) receives the last product.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, or to cancel the contract if you have a right to do so (e.g. because the products delivered to you are faulty or misdescribed), you must inform us (see contact details below) of your decision to withdraw from or to cancel the contract by an unequivocal statement of your intention to withdraw or cancel by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
In order for us to identify your order, when exercising your right of withdrawal or cancellation please provide the following information:
- Confirmation order number
- Your name and contact details (address, phone number and e-mail address), and
- the details of the products in respect of which you wish to withdraw from or cancel the contract.
To meet the withdrawal deadline (i.e. where you are exercising your right to withdraw from the contract without giving any reason), it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
Effects of withdrawal/cancellation
If you withdraw from the contract (i.e. you are exercising your right to withdraw from the contract without giving any reason), we will reimburse you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery; except that we will not reimburse you any additional delivery costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us. We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than:
- fourteen (14) days after the day we receive back from you any products supplied, or
- (if earlier) fourteen (14) days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the products, or
- if there were no products supplied, fourteen (14) days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from the contract.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.
If you cancel the contract (e.g. because the products delivered to you are faulty or misdescribed) then the effects will be the same as if you withdraw from the contract (see above), except that we will reimburse you the costs of delivery even if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us.
If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. For information about returning the products, please contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must return the products to us without undue delay and in any event not later than fourteen (14) days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from or cancellation of this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the products before the period of sixty (60) days has expired.
If you withdraw from the contract (i.e. you are exercising your right to withdraw from the contract without giving any reason) you will have to bear the direct costs of returning the products. If you cancel the contract (e.g. because the products delivered to you are faulty or misdescribed) then we will reimburse you those costs.
In all cases, you will be liable for any diminished value of the products resulting from any handling of them other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products. We will determine such diminished value as described below.
Our determination of any diminished value of the products
In order to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products you may handle and inspect them but must do so (i) with due care and (ii) in the same manner as you would typically be allowed to do in a shop. Any handling or inspection of the products in excess of this may result in a diminished value of the products, which we will be entitled to deduct when reimbursing the payment received from you, or to charge you. The determination of any diminished value will be made on a case-by-case basis. As part of your handling and inspection of the products as described above, you can open the box and inspect the fabrics and colours of the products with due care, provided that the opening is done without damaging the box. If the box is damaged, then that will be regarded as diminishing the value of the products. Any installation of the products is also likely to result in a diminished value of the products. We remind you that when in your possession and until returned to us, you are responsible for the products and will be liable for any damage to them.
