Conclusion of sales and availability of stock
Registered users may place orders for Goods as long as the Goods are available and have not been sold out.
Placing a product in a shopping basket without completing the purchase cycle does not constitute an agreement of sale and/or an order for such product, and as such, a product may be removed from the shopping basket if stock is no longer available. You cannot hold Cyclesharp liable if such product is not available when the purchase cycle is completed at a later stage.
An agreement of sale between you and Cyclesharp will come into effect upon completion of an online order summary on the Website and payment or payment authorisation is received by Cyclesharp to the satisfaction of Cyclesharp (the “sale”).
Cyclesharp may, in its sole discretion, accept the cancellation of an order by you, on sufficient cause shown and on a case by case basis. In which event the provisions set out in the Exchange and Return Policy will apply..
You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited. In the case of Goods offered for sale by Cyclesharp, Cyclesharp will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock and we will only be liable for delivery of the Goods when the Goods are available. When Goods are no longer available after conclusion of a sale, Cyclesharp will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of the amount paid by you for such Goods.
