7) ORDER PROCESS
7.1 Order process. The Customer can browse the Website without placing an order.
If the Customer wants to purchase Goods and Services, he/she will have to choose the Goods or Services to add to his/her shopping cart and will have to select the quantity of Goods and Services.
Thereafter, the Customer will have two options:
– If the Customer holds a Easology account, he/she can log on to place an order faster.
– If the Customer does not hold a Easology account, he/she can place an order as a guest.
The Customer will then have the opportunity to check his/her shopping cart, his/her order and the total price to be paid and to modify the contents of the shopping cart and the order. The Customer will then have to click on “I have read and agree to the website terms and conditions *”.
To confirm his/her order, the Customer will have to click on the “Place order” button.
Once the payment has been processed, the Customer will receive an email confirming the order and payment.
7.2 How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
7.3 If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the product. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product.
7.4 Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
7.5 We only sell to the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK.
8) PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 10.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.
8.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
8.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product’s correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
8.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. Easology uses the secured software solution Stripe and Paypal, to enable the Customer to pay for his/her order by credit or debit card. Payments by cheque or by wire transfer are not accepted.
In order to pay for his/her order the Customer must:
– either pay via the Stripe payment interface by using his/her credit or debit card. In this case, the Customer will have to provide his/her credit or debit card number, the expiration date, the owner’s name and the security code (the three or four last numbers on the back or the front of the card, depending on the type of credit or debit card used). Payment information is only communicated to the Stripe website and neither the Website nor Easology receives or collects any banking information. The payment process is fully secured by Stripe;
– or pay by using his/her Paypal account.
Please refer to the relevant security rules on the Stripe or Paypal websites, as applicable, and never disclose any banking information to a third party.
Information relating to order payments is set out on the Website, but if the Customer wishes to have additional information or help, he/she can contact our Customer Service using the contact details indicated in Clause 24. If a Customer’s bank or building society declines the payment, the order will not be confirmed and the Customer will be informed via his/her Easology account, by email or by Customer Services.
Orders for Goods placed on the Website are only for delivery within the United Kingdom (mainland only).
When placing an order, the Customer will have to provide a billing address. This address will be used to dispatch the Goods once the order has been confirmed, except if a different delivery address is provided.
Shipping costs will be automatically calculated when the order is finalised and will be indicated to the Customer prior to his/her confirmation of the order. Easology uses the services of third-party carriers for its deliveries. The Customer will also be provided with an order tracking number.
We aim to deliver orders made by 3pm next day from the date of the order confirmation and the estimated delivery date will be confirmed in the confirmation email that You will receive.
The Customer should check his/her Goods once he/she has received them.
In the event that Goods are damaged or defective at the time of delivery, the Customer should immediately inform the carrier. The Customer may also contact Easology’s Customer Service using the contact details set out in Clause 24.
You will own the Goods once payment has been received in full by Easology. However, the Goods will only become your responsibility once You or any other person identified by You has acquired physical possession of the Goods.
11) PROVIDING THE PRODUCTS
11.1 When we will provide the products. On the basis that the product is a one-off purchase of digital content, we will make the digital content available for download by you immediately after we accept your order.
11.2 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the products is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.

The Customer has a right of cancellation that he/she can exercise without giving any reason for a period of 14 days starting from the day of receipt of any Goods ordered on the Website or, in the case of Services, from the day on which the agreement is made.
The Customer will be refunded the entire amount paid, including shipping costs, within 14 days from the day on which Easology is informed of the Customer’s decision to cancel. However, in relation to Goods, Easology may withhold the reimbursement until it has received the Goods back, or until the Customer has supplied evidence of having sent back the Goods, whichever is the earliest.
The Customer shall bear all costs of returning the Goods when exercising his/her right of cancellation.
The Customer shall send back the relevant Goods no later than 14 days from the day on which he/she has communicated his/her decision to cancel.
In order to exercise Your right of cancellation, You must inform Us in writing, in a clearly worded statement, within 14 days from the receipt of the relevant Goods or, in the case of Services, within 14 days from the day on which the agreement is made. In order to notify Easology of cancellation, You may, if You wish, use the cancellation form attached to these T&Cs that can be sent back by email to [email protected] by mentioning “Cancellation” in the subject heading. You may also inform Us of Your decision to cancel Your order via the messaging service that is accessible through Your Easology account.
You must take care of the Goods You want to send back and must not open, use or damage them.
In particular, the Goods to send back should be in perfect condition and in their original packaging, not unsealed and undamaged and should be accompanied by a copy of the sales invoice. Also, in order to facilitate the handling of Your return, please mention the return number indicated on Your parcel.
Please note that if, as a result of You handling the Goods in any way other than that which is reasonably necessary to verify their nature, characteristics and good functioning, they are impaired in any manner, we are permitted by law to reduce the amount of Your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Goods.
b) Exclusion of the right of cancellation:
Among the Services that Easology offers on the Website, some can be fully performed if You wish, during the cancellation period.
In accordance with Section 36 of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, if You want Us to start providing a Service before the end of the cancellation period, You must expressly request so, and accept that if a Service has been fully performed during the cancellation period, You will no longer have a right of cancellation.

(a) because you have cancelled the Contract between us within the 14-day period (see above), we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible after collection of the Product from you and, in any case, within 14 days of the day you gave us notice to cancel . Where you are entitled to a refund, we will refund the price of the Product in full. Subject to instances where installation is available, we will be responsible for collecting any returned Product from your address in the United Kingdom.
(b) for any other reason (for instance, because you have notified us in accordance with the terms below that you do not agree to a change in these terms and conditions or in any of our policies, or because you consider that the Product is defective), we will examine the returned Product and will notify you of your refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time and, usually within 5 working days of when we receive the Product from you. We will usually process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the day we confirmed to you via e-mail that you were entitled to a refund.
14.3. Subject to the terms below, if you believe that a Product you have ordered from us is defective, you should contact us via Easology’s Customer Service using the contact details set out in Clause 24. We will advise you of the appropriate steps to take. If you notify us within 30 days of delivery of the Product that the Product is defective, you will have the option to select a repair, an exchange or a refund. If a fault is found after 30 days from delivery of the Product, you should contact Samsung for their warranty details.
14.4. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. If you fail to comply with this obligation and return the Products to us, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
20.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so.
20.3 If defective digital content which we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation.

22.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
22.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
22.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in the English courts.

If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the products in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.

If you are not happy with how we have handled any complaint, you may want to contact the alternative dispute resolution provider we use. You can submit a complaint to European Commission Online Dispute Resolution platform via their website at https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.chooseLanguage.
