Ordering goods and services from us

When you place an order with us, you are making an offer to buy goods or services. An order is placed on our website via adding a product to the shopping cart and proceeding through our checkout process. The checkout process includes giving us delivery and any other relevant details for your order e.g. entering payment information and submitting your order.

When we receive your order it will be screened and cleared of any security issue, website error or stock complication; your order will be processed and finalized. On completion of this process you will be notified that your order has been processed, payment is then taken. This results in a separate binding agreement between you and us for the supply of those products.

For each order accepted you will be provided email communications to keep you informed of the progress of your order. We endeavor to also provide Courier Track and Trace references for your convenience.

 

Refusing or cancelling orders

All orders are screened for legitimacy of payment. If an order does not meet Wide Open Vault confidential security checks, the order will not be accepted. The funds will be returned to the purchasing account and a notification of this will be sent via email.

In the unlikely event that the goods or services ordered are no longer available we reserve the right to refuse or cancel an order.

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders that we believe, solely by our own judgment, to be placed for commercial purposes, e.g. any kind of reseller. We also reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders that we believe, solely by our own judgment, to have been placed fraudulently.

While we endeavor to ensure that the price and description of goods or services is accurate, if there is an error in the process of listing a product or service on our website or a technical error in the processing of your order we reserve the right to refuse or cancel the order.

 

Online Purchasing

Discount codes are not valid on any products during sale periods. Items on promotion can be limited to one per customer. In the event of limited stock sales, no further sales at the promotional price will be made after the allocated quantity has been sold or the expiry date and time has been reached. In the unlikely event where a product that has been ordered is no longer available, our Customer Service Team will contact you as soon as possible to discuss your options. This may result in the cancellation of your order or replacement with an alternative product. If there is an error in pricing online, in a product description, name or product image, Wide Open Vault reserves the right to contact the customer and make the appropriate changes to the order. If an alternative option is not agreed upon with the customer, the order will be cancelled and the amount paid refunded.
