Other order status updates appear on the user's screen and are e-mailed to the contact email address provided by the user. During the processing of each registered order, the availability of stock of the ordered products is also confirmed. In case the availability or delivery time differs from the one listed on the product's page, the user will receive an update.
Before sending the order, the user, in addition to knowing the terms hereof, shall also be aware of the following:
The Company bears no responsibility and does not cover any differences in the prices of products purchased from a physical store of the Company and the user has subsequently discovered the existence of a lower price in the Store or vice versa. The Company is not responsible for any errors in the features, photos and product prices listed on the Store and cannot guarantee that there will be no errors for any reason in importing and / or updating the features and / or price of a product. For this reason, in good faith, if the user finds that a product is offered at an abnormally low or high price in relation to its market value, he must contact the Company by e-mail at the address before ordering. [email protected]
Any product offers are valid until stocks are depleted.
The Company provides the ability to order available products through the e-shop or to collect the products from the Company's physical store in Athens at the link to the Eleni Orfanou Company's physical store network. The user has the opportunity to select through the e-shop the item (s) he / she wishes to purchase as well as the point of collection of the purchased product by paying the purchase price in cash or card upon receipt of the goods in the physical store of his choice. This order will be valid as soon as the user receives an informational e-mail or SMS about the date of receipt of the order from the physical store and for as long as the e-mail or SMS refers to it. If the customer does not come to the store and pay the price within the aforementioned deadline, the order will be canceled without any liability from company for that reason. If a user abuses this feature (eg repeated orders without receipt from the store), the Company may cancel and refuse the order.
Users can be billed either by retail receipt, deliverable upon delivery, or by invoice, if the user is a freelancer or a commercial enterprise.
For shipments of products within Greece, the user can choose as a payment method cash on delivery, bank deposit, credit card or PayPal. If the payment is made by cash on delivery, the user is obliged to pay the total amount to the post office or courier employee. In the case of credit card selection, a corresponding charge will be charged to the user's card account.
Credit card transactions made through the e-shop will be displayed on the user’s credit card statement with justification ORFANOU ELENI. If it is found that fraudulent use of a third party's credit card has been committed without fault, this charge may be canceled upon request to the Bank that has issued the credit card, which must investigate the complaint. For this reason, any damaged third party is obliged as soon as it realizes that this has occurred to inform the issuing Bank in order to cancel it and to exclude its use by unauthorized persons.
In both cases a refund will be made if the user decides to return the product. In the case of money transfers, the user either gives his account details and deposits the money with him or the money goes into his card electronically (if there is any additional expense on this option the Company is not charged), in cases of credit card purchase the card is instantly credited, and when purchased through PayPal, the money is credited to the Paypal user account. Shipments of products outside Greece are made only by courier and credit card debit or via PayPal.
The products can be shipped by the Company anywhere, at the place indicated by the user on the order form. Shipping costs depend on the total weight of the order, the shipping method and the country of destination.
Exact shipping costs are automatically displayed in the shopping cart and you can choose from alternative shipping or delivery options.
The Company will make every effort to ship the products within Greece within 1-3 business days (Monday to Friday) for courier deliveries and within 8-10 days for post deliveries. Deliveries outside Greece are made by courier only and the time required varies by country of dispatch. The maximum time limit for delivery may not exceed 30 days. The Company is not responsible for any delay in fulfilment (including delivery) due to reasons that cannot be attributed to the Company or due to force majeure and as such the Company is entitled to an extension of time for fulfilment. Force Majeure means any event that is outside the control sphere of the Company, that could not predict and prevent and results in the Company being unable to fulfill, in whole or in part, any of its obligations under the contract. If such events last more than one month, the contract may be terminated by any party without compensation.
In any event of delay in delivery beyond the agreed time, the user shall require the Company to make delivery within an additional period of time depending on the circumstances and only if the products are not delivered within that additional time limit shall the user be entitled to terminate the contract. The foregoing shall not apply where the delivery within the agreed deadline is significant, considering all the circumstances surrounding the conclusion of the contract, or if the user has informed the Company, prior to the conclusion of the contract, that the delivery is required to be made on or until a certain date. In such cases, if the Company fails to deliver the goods at the time it has agreed with the user, the consumer will be entitled to terminate the contract immediately. Upon termination of the contract, the Company will, without undue delay, refund any amount paid under the contract.
The ownership of the products is transferred after the full payment of the price. The risk of loss or damage to the goods is transferred to the user when he or a third party designated by him and other than the carrier has acquired the physical possession of the products. However, the risk is transferred to the user upon delivery to a carrier if the user requested that the products be transported by a carrier of his choice and which was not offered by the Company (subject to the user's rights vis-à-vis that carrier).
In the event of the Company being liable for a genuine defect or for lack of a contractual status of the product, the user is entitled, at his option, to: a) require, without any charge, to correct or replace the product with another, unless such action is impossible; (b) apply for a reduction in price or (c) withdraw from the contract of sale, unless this is an insignificant actual defect. For a property to be considered contractual, it must be agreed in writing. If the buyer chooses to correct or replace the product, the Company must correct or replace it within a reasonable time. The above user rights are expired after one year for mobile item.
The Company provides one-year commercial guarantee of good operation and free repair beginning from the physical acquisition of the product. The Company does not offer guarantee or guarantees protection for the suitability of a product sold for any particular purpose.
The commercial guarantee covers the free repair of products (labor and spare parts) from normal use. Damages from mishandling, force majeure and generally harmful exogenous factors are not covered. The user is charged with the cost of transport to and from the repair shop, the visit of which to his location is subject to a surcharge. The warranty does not apply in case of intervention by an unauthorized technician.
The user may, using any means of communication, cancel an order placed by any means of communication so that it is not executed, provided that it has not already been executed (orders "Pending" or "Processing" or " Ongoing").
The user may, within 14 calendar days of delivery of the products to the user (or delivery to a carrier selected by the user other than the one offered by the Company), withdraw from the contract signed with the Company (ie, for all products for each order). In this case, the Company will refund to the user all the money received from him (by credit to his debit / credit card account or through PayPal, as long as he used them for the transaction, otherwise by depositing in his bank account) - in any event, no such refund will be charged - including, where applicable, delivery costs (excluding any additional costs due to the user's choice to use a delivery method other than the cheaper standard delivery method offered by the Company), without undue delay and in any event within 14 calendar days of the Company being notified of the withdrawal of the user (by email, telephone or return slip). The user must, in this case, return the goods to the Company by his own choice and at his own expense, without undue delay and in any event within 14 calendar days of the day that he declares his withdrawal from the contract. The user is solely responsible for any decrease in the value of the products resulting from manipulation that was not necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and operation of the products. Simply put, the product should be in a state that allows it to be resold, so you can try the product but not use it. No parts have been removed for customization purposes or any kind of modification has been made. For example, if you bought a bracelet, you can try it at home, but not wear it out. The returned item should, moreover, be exactly as it was before it was sold in its complete original packaging (box, nylon, foam, which should not have tears or damage / deterioration) and with all the contents of the original packaging (user instructions, specifications and warranties, etc.). The Company is entitled to delay refunds until the products are returned or until the user provides proof that the products have been returned, whichever occurs first. The user may return the goods themselves to the Company's head office or any physical store. A good that was sold with an extra gift should be returned along with the extra gift, otherwise the value of the gift will be deducted from the refund. For the rest, the applicable provisions of Law 2251/1994 on Withdrawal apply.
Return of customized products cannot be accepted.
Alternatively, if the user does not wish to withdraw from the contract, he / she shall be entitled to, within the same deadline (14 days from delivery etc.), replace any products in the order with other products in the same condition, without, in this case, being charged (the user) with new shipping costs.
The above applies to orders placed through the online store, over the phone or through any other written means of communication, even if you have opted for delivery from a particular store. For purchases you make through our store network you can only substitute with another product and not a refund.
