Although NewBreedArt will make all reasonable efforts to have stock available and delivered within the specified lead times, NewBreedArt provides no warranty, guarantee or undertaking that it will be able to deliver the specified products within the indicated lead times as it is dependent on third party shipping providers.

You do not need to be a registered user in order to browse the Website or purchase products, but you will need to provide us with shipping information for your order to be placed and processed and products delivered to you.

To register as a user, you must provide a unique username and password and provide basic personal information to allow NewBreedArt to create a user profile, process your order and deliver products to you. You will need to use your unique username and password to access the Website in order to purchase products and to track your orders.

You agree and undertake that your username and password shall be used only for your personal use and shall not be disclosed by you to any third party.

You agree that, once the correct username and password relating to your account have been entered, irrespective of whether the use of the username and password is unauthorised or fraudulent, you will be liable for payment of any orders placed against your user profile, save where the order is cancelled by you in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

You agree to notify NewBreedArt immediately upon becoming aware of or reasonably suspecting that unauthorised access under or use of your username and password is or has occurred and undertake to take all reasonable steps to mitigate any resultant loss or harm, including but not limited to changing your password.

You agree that you will not in any way use any device, software or other instrument to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Website.

PLACING AN ORDER FOR GOODS

Users may place orders for products, which NewBreedArt may accept or reject. Whether or not NewBreedArt accepts an order depends on the availability of the product, correctness of the information relating to the product (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by NewBreedArt for the product.

VERY IMPORTANT:
NewBreedArt will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the product to you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and NewBreedArt come into effect (“Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from NewBreedArt stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. NewBreedArt will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, within 10 days of such rejection, refund you for any amount already paid.

Prior to delivery or your collection of the products, you may cancel an order at any time provided you do so before receiving a dispatch or delivery notice. After delivery or collection of the product, you may cancel the order only in accordance with our Shipping and returns Policy.

Placing products in a wishlist or shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an order for such products, and as such, products may be removed from the shopping basket if stock is no longer available or the price thereof might change without notice to you. You cannot hold NewBreedArt liable if such products are not available or are not available at the particular price when you complete or attempt to complete the purchase cycle at a later stage.

You acknowledge that you understand that stock of all products on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. When products are no longer available after placing an order, NewBreedArt will notify you and you will be entitled to a full refund of the amount paid by you for such products in accordance with our Shipping and returns policy.

Irrespective of any price displayed, once you select a product in your shopping basket and have proceeded to the checkout, the amount to be paid (including delivery charges) will be shown in the checkout area on the Website together with the charges you must pay (“purchase price”). The merchant outlet country at the time of presenting payment options to the cardholder is South Africa. Transaction currency is South African Rand (ZAR).

You may contact us via email at admin@newbreedart.co.za to obtain a full record of your payment. We will also send you email communications about your order and payment.

Once you have selected your payment method and you accept these Terms and Conditions, you will be directed to PayGate site for payment of the applicable purchase price for the products.
