Prices shall be subject to alteration without notice.
We inform in our online web shop, in a transparent way, about the total price of each product or service, including taxes and fees, additional transport charges, postal or delivery charges or any other charges that may apply.
We cannot be held responsible in the event of computer or software errors, human errors, technical errors, or due to other errors, which causes a substantial and not foreseen change in the sale price to the public in the web shop, so in such cases where the price is too low or too high, the purchase order will be considered invalid and canceled and the Customer will be informed of this fact, in which case the payment will also be returned to the customer.
