By using this website and/or by placing any order through it, you undertake:
- To use the website exclusively to make legitimate enquiries or orders.
- Not to make any speculative, false or fraudulent orders. If we are reasonably of the opinion that such an order has been made, we shall be entitled to cancel the order and inform the relevant authorities.
- To provide correct and accurate e-mail, postal and/or other contact details to us and acknowledge that we may use these details to contact you if this should prove necessary (see our Data Protection Policies).

HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED
The information set out in the Terms and the details contained on this website do not constitute an offer for sale, but rather an invitation to trade. No contract in respect of any items will exist between us until your order has been expressly accepted by us, whether or not funds have been deducted from your account. If we do not accept your offer and funds have already been deducted, these will be fully refunded.
To place an order, you must follow the online shopping process and click on "Authorize payment" to submit the order. After this, you will receive an email from us confirming receipt of your order (the "Order Confirmation"). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes your offer to us to buy one or more items from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm this acceptance to you by sending you an email that confirms that the item is being sent (the "Shipping Confirmation").
The contract for the purchase of an item between us (the "Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Shipping Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those items whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other items which may have been part of your order, until the dispatch of those items has been confirmed in a separate Shipping Confirmation
We attempt to be as accurate as possible in our product descriptions. We do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this website are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free.
We endeavour to display product colours as accurately as possible on our web site. The colours displayed on your screen can differ from the actual colours, therefore we cannot guarantee that your screen displays the accurate colours.
AVAILABILITY OF ITEMS
When your order is received, you will be emailed an order confirmation. We reserve the right not to deliver in the event that the stock level was incorrect at the time of receiving the order. If we are unable to deliver your order, we will inform you about the cancellation and process a refund for the same value. b&t has the right to send out only parts of the order in case one of the items is out of stock.
REFUSAL OF YOUR ORDER
We reserve the right to withdraw any items from this website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. Whilst we will use our reasonable endeavours to process all the orders submitted to us, there may be exceptional circumstances which mean that we may need to refuse to process or accept an order after we have received it or sent you an Order Confirmation, which we reserve the right to do at any time. We will not be liable to you or any other third party by reason of our withdrawing any item from this website, removing or editing any materials or content on this website, or for refusing to process or accept an order after we have received it or sent you an Order Confirmation.
We reserve the right to refuse a personalization if the word(s) contain(s) racist, xenophobic, sexist or politic character that would hurt people and cause prejudice to b&t.
The price of any items will be as stipulated on our website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. While we try to ensure that all prices on this website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of items you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming the order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, the order will be treated as cancelled and if you have already paid for the items you will receive a full refund. We are under no obligation to provide the items to you at the incorrect (lower) price (even after we have sent you a Shipping Confirmation) if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as an incorrect price.
All displayed prices are final prices including the respective VAT that may differ between countries. Prices do not include payment, delivery or import tax charges. b&t retains the right to change prices at any time. The pricing currency on our website is determined as Euro.

To do this, you must follow the steps of the purchase process, completing or verifying the information requested in each step. Throughout the purchase process, before your payment, you can modify the details of your order.

In case of a return from countries outside of the EU - Please attach the original invoice outside on your parcel so customs can identify it as a return and will not tax it on its way back to us again.
