From time to time the Company may offer goods for sale on the Site. Unless stated otherwise on the Site, all prices are in US dollars and include VAT, to the extent applicable, but are exclusive of shipment costs . Shipment costs will be presented on the purchase page. All prices and shipment costs may change from time to time without prior notice. The applicable price in respect of a specific purchase is the price presented on the Site (and/or on PayPal) upon completion of the purchase. If the prices are changed before the purchase is completed, you will be charged the new prices. The inventory of all items offered on the Site is limited and it is possible that at the time of purchase the requested item will not be available. The Company reserves the right to change and/or remove the list of items offered for purchase or close the Goodnet store at any time and at its sole discretion and nothing herein shall be deemed as an obligation to offer any items for sale.
After a purchase is processed and payment is received by the Company, the Company will send you a receipt by email, as required by law, (by submitting an order on the Site you agree to recive the receipt by email) and engage the services of a third party carrier to send the purchased item to the address provided by you to Paypal. Orders on the Site are limited to the distribution regions of the third party carrier. These services may not be available in certain countries. If you submit an order from one of these countries and your payment is transferred to the Company, we will refund these payments to you and your order will be canceled. Your payment will be deemed received only after it will be transferred to the Company's bank or PayPal account, as the case may be. The Company will not be liable or responsible for any difficulties or failures in transferring the payment, if such failures or difficulties occur please contact PayPal directly.
If the shipping address you provided was correct and in spite of this the carrier failed to complete the shipment, you may request that the Company re-execute the shipment (this is applicable only for orders of up to three (3) items). If the third party carrier will fail to ship and/or the shipment will be delayed as a result of your unavailability at the time of shipment and/or inaccuracies in the details provided by you to the Company or the third party carrier, the Company may charge you with additional shipment and service costs. All items purchased from the Company are made pursuant to a shipment contract. Delivery shall be complete EXW (2010) Company premises. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Company will not be liable or responsible for any damage, loss or delay due to a default or failure in shipment. You hereby acknowledge that in respect of any such shipment related claim you may contact the third party carrier subject to its terms and conditions.
If you purchased an item on the Goodnet store and wish to cancel the transaction, you may do so by submitting a cancelation request to firstname.lastname@example.org subject to the following terms and conditions and the Company will make reasonable efforts to refund the price paid (not including the costs for the first shipment) within reasonable time, after deduction of shipment costs, service fees and expenses as permitted by law. Following are the conditions for cancelation: (a) you may send the Company a cancelation request within fourteen (14) business days from the day you received the item with a copy of the receipt and/or order reference to the aforementioned email, the cancelation request must specify the order number, purchased item, price paid and reason for cancelation; (b) you may not cancel your purchase if the item was damaged or used; (c) you may not cancel any purchase of items that may be copied, recorded or duplicated unless they arrived packed and you did not open their package; (d) cancelation is subject to returning the item in its original state to the Company.
You are the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders shipped outside of Israel may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country ("Import Fees"). In the event of an international shipment you may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; the Company has no control over these charges and can't predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates.
With respect to each item for which Import Fees have been calculated, you authorize the Company to designate a carrier ("Carrier") to act as your agent with the relevant customs and tax authorities in the destination country, to clear your merchandise, process and remit your actual Import Fees for such item. "Import Fees Deposit" represents an estimate of the Import Fees that will be levied on the items in your order for shipment to countries outside of Israel. By submitting your order, you agree to allow the Company to collect the Import Fees Deposit for the applicable items in your order. This deposit will be used, on your behalf, to reimburse the Carriers for the import fees that they have paid on your behalf to the appropriate authorities of the destination country. You further agree that the Carriers may disclose to the Company the amount of actual Import Fees levied on the item you have purchased from the Company. In the event that the Import Fees Deposit exceeds the actual Import Fees, the Company will refund the difference to you. In the case of gifts or other purchases made on behalf of another recipient, you also agree to grant the foregoing authorizations on behalf of the recipient designated in your order. To obtain details regarding the actual Import Fees, or to obtain documentation or receipts in connection with customs clearance, you may contact the Carrier specified in your shipment confirmation e-mail.
