Delivery charges will be confirmed to you, before your order is accepted. If your order is particularly heavy, it may be subject to extra delivery charges. If any order is subject to extra delivery charges you will be advised of the additional cost before delivery of your order begins. You have the option to cancel the order if you do not wish to pay any additional delivery costs.
Please note we are currently unable to deliver to PO Boxes.
If you want to avoid any charges that would apply if we did deliver, you can collect your Order in the Store (2 Pireus Str., 18346 Moschato, Attica, Greece). Free shipping offers valid on all orders with a subtotal of 100 euro or more only within Greece.
Please be aware that we will do everything to meet the specified delivery time, however the timing of your Order is determined by taking into account the number of orders and the circumstances being faced at that time and therefore cannot be guaranteed. We will inform you if we become aware of an unexpected severe delay. We reserve the right to make partial deliveries at our cost if not all ordered goods are in stock; in as far as this is reasonable for you.
In case any Order is delivered with obvious damages incurred during transport, please claim these defects immediately with the delivery company and contact us at your earliest convenience via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to file a complaint or notify us in a timely manner will not infringe on your statutory rights. However, it will help us validate our own claims toward the courier and/or transport insurance.
7. PRICE AND PAYMENT
The price of any Product will be listed on our Website. Prices are quoted in Euros (€). Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which you have been presented with the Confirmation Email. Unless otherwise indicated, prices stated on our Website are inclusive of any applicable Value Added Tax or other sales tax. The breakdown of any applicable VAT payable with your order is indicated on the invoice you will receive on supply/with the goods.
European Union Customers
For customers throughout the European Union VAT will be applied to your order, where it is legally appropriate for Us to do so, and will appear on the paper invoice. If you are registered for VAT within the EU and do not wish to pay the tax on eligible products, you will not be able to use our online ordering systems.
List of EU territories
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and such other countries as may be added from time to time.
The prices for the Products exclude any delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due. Our delivery charges are as set out in these Terms and will be confirmed in the Invoice issued to you.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products or delivery costs may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the Products’ correct price or the delivery cost is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. If the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mispricing, we do not have to provide the Products or send them to you at the incorrect (lower) price. If the Product’s correct price or the delivery cost is higher than the price stated in our Website or in these Terms, we will contact you as soon as possible to tell you about the error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Products at the correct price or amending your delivery specification (where the mispricing relates to delivery charges), or cancelling your Order. We will not process your Order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the Order as cancelled and notify you in writing. We will refund you the full amount paid by you as soon as is reasonable if you have already made a payment to us.
You may pay by PayPal, Mastercard, VISA, VISA Debit, VISA Electron, Maestro and cash on delivery within Greece. Please ensure if you are using a credit card that you provide the card holder’s name as it is shown on the card, and the billing address corresponds as it appears on the card statement. Payment will be taken in Euros (€), and if applicable, your card will be charged according to the exchange rate at that time. Payment in cash is determined by the applicable tax and other regulations in force as to the terms of the amount that can be paid in this way.
Right of rescission
You have the right to return the purchased products without penalty and without the obligation to inform us for the reason you wish to return the products, within a fourteen (14) calendar day time period from the date of receipt of the products. In that case, you shall be charged only with the return costs of the products. You can cancel any item ordered online in accordance with the terms in this section apart from any items which deteriorate or expire rapidly, any items that are sealed for health protection or hygiene reasons if you have unsealed them and any items that have been inseparably mixed after delivery.
Returns are accepted with the sales invoice, only if the products you wish to return are in the same condition as when you received them.
You are obliged to notify us in written of your intention to return the products you purchased through via email with the subject “Rescission Request” at the following e-mail address: email@example.com referring the date/number of the proof of purchase within the aforementioned time period. Provided that you receive written approval for the return from Us, the address, where the returned products must be sent to, is K. Vlachakis & Co LP, 2 Pireus Str., 18346 Moschato, Attica, Greece. If you rescind from the contract you will be refunded in full without further delay within 30 calendar days from the date when we are informed of your decision to rescind from the contract. The refund will be made to the same payment method originally used by you to make the payment (unless you have expressly agreed otherwise) but We will deduct from any reimbursement an amount equal to any diminishment in value of the items as a result of you handling the items beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the items. Under no circumstances will you be charged extra costs for such a refund. We have the right to delay the refund until the goods have been returned to us, or until you provide proof that you have sent back the goods, whichever happens first. You are obliged to send back the goods or to deliver them to us, without unwarranted delay within 14 calendar days from the date of your declaration of withdrawal from the contract. We will deem that the deadline has been met if you send the goods back before the end of the period of 14 days. You will incur the cost of the return of the goods.
Product Returns due to delivery error
In all cases where other products are delivered, by type or quantity, you may return the products. The cost of returning the Order shall be paid by us with the exception of any further costs incurred by you as a result of your choice of an alternative delivery method instead of the cheapest standard delivery method offered by Us.
Returns of defective products damaged on arrival (DOA)
For the avoidance of any inconvenience of yours, it is recommended that upon delivery of your Order you carefully review the condition of the purchased Products and that their package is intact, in order to detect any visible defect (i.e. broken product, etc.). In the event you detect any defect, contact us immediately after delivery on the same or the next working day (from Monday to Friday) at the e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You have the right to return the defective products to the Store within a seven (7) calendar day time period from the date of receipt. Returned products must be in their unused, original condition, as well as all product tags, which form the identity of the product. Otherwise, cannot be accepted as returned items. As the products are received back, they are checked to ensure that they are defective. In that case, we will firstly offer to repair the defective item. If this is not possible, we will replace the product you’ve ordered, as long as the product is available. You will receive complete reimbursement if the goods can neither be repaired, nor replaced.
Note: When you are trying products, please make sure that they do not come in contact with anything that may mark or add scent to them. We will be unable to accept any returned item where there is evidence that these instructions have not been adhered to.
Returns of defective products
In the unlikely event that you receive a defective product, you will be entitled to one of the following remedies:
Tier 1: Within 30 days* of receiving the defective item, you can choose to receive either:
· a repair or replacement; or
· a full refund.
Tier 2: If more than 30 days have passed after you received the goods, you can claim a repair or a replacement of the defective item (but not a refund).
Tier 3: If the repair or replacement is not possible, or if it is unsuccessful or cannot be provided to you in a reasonable time, then you can choose to either:
· keep the defective item and claim a price reduction (the amount of the price reduction will be determined by K. Vlachakis & Co LP depending on what is reasonable in the circumstances); or
· return the defective item and claim a refund (but note this refund may be reduced to take account of any use you have had from the goods).
* The Tier 1 right to reject, for perishable goods that would not be expected to last for 30 days, lasts only as long as such perishable goods would reasonably be expected to last.
If you think you have received a defective item, please return the items back to K. Vlachakis & Co LP including details where possible of:

• Product Code/Product Name
• Details of the fault
• Whether you would prefer a refund or a repair or replacement

We will process any refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case within fourteen (14) days after the day we confirm via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund for defective items. The refund will be made to the same payment method originally used by you to make the payment (unless you have expressly agreed otherwise).
