You may only use our Website to make legitimate enquiries and/or to place orders.
You will not make any speculative, false or fraudulent representations or orders. If in our absolute discretion we opine any such representations or orders have been made, we are entitled to cancel the orders and to take whatever actions we deem necessary, including but not limited to reporting to the relevant authorities.
You also undertake to provide correct and accurate email, postal and/or other contact details to us and acknowledge that we may use these details to contact you if necessary.

Constitution of the Contract
The information set out in the Terms and the details contained on this Website do not constitute an offer for sale but an invitation to treat. No contract in respect of any products or services shall exist between you and us until your order has been accepted by us. If we do not accept your offer and funds have already been deducted from your account, they will be fully refunded.
To place your order, your will be required to follow the shopping process online and press the “Pay Now” button to submit the order. After this, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received and will process your order (the “Order Confirmation”). Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted, as your order constitutes your offer to us to buy one or more products from us. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance by sending you an email that confirms that the product has been dispatched (the “Shipment Confirmation”). Only at this stage is your offer to buy accepted by us and the contract for sale (“the Contract”) comes into existence.
The Contract will relate only to those products as specified in the Shipment Confirmation.. We will not be bound to supply any other products, which may have been part of your original order until the dispatch of such products have been confirmed in a separate Shipment Confirmation.
Availability of Our Products
All orders for products are subject to availability and in the event of supply difficulties or because products are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to give you information about substitute products of an equal or higher quality and value than your order. If you do not wish to accept such substitute products, we will refund any monies that you have paid.
Refusal of Order
We reserve the right to withdraw any products from this Website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this website. Whilst we will make our best efforts to always process all the orders, there may be exceptional circumstances which we may need to refuse to process an order even if an Order Confirmation has been sent. Our right to do so is absolute but any funds paid by you will be refunded .
Subject to availability, and unless there is any exceptional circumstances, we shall endeavour to fulfil your order for product(s) listed in the Order Confirmation by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no estimated delivery date is specified, within 15 days of the date of the Order Confirmation.
Reasons for delay could include:
Remote delivery area;
Other unforeseen circumstances beyond BORA180™’s control
Title and Possession
The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the products will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the products, including delivery charges, or upon delivery, whichever is the later.
Price and Payment
While we take care to ensure that all prices quoted on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of any product(s) 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 or if you do not respond to our enquiry within 5 business days, the order will be treated as cancelled and if you have already paid for the product(s) you will receive a full refund.
We are under no obligation to sell the product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price (even after we have sent you an Order Confirmation) if the pricing error is an obvious typographical or arithmetical inaccuracy and could have reasonably been recognised by you as such.
The prices displayed on our Website include VAT but exclude delivery costs, (which may vary from time to time) and will be added to the total amount due when you complete an order.
We reserve our absolute right to decline or refuse orders in whole or in part for any reasons including bulk or high value purchases and to change price and availability information without notice.
