Should any of your registration information change, please notify us immediately at the following e-mail address email@example.com. We may also change registration requirements from time to time.
2.2. The account password you provide should be unique and kept secure, and you must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.

Please be aware that we may be unable to deliver selected products due to production problems or quality check issues identified when we receive a product from our supplier. In these circumstances we will notify you by email and refund any payment made by you within thirty days of being advised that products become unavailable.

5. PRICING POLICY
5.1. Prices shown for our products on the Website are in AED and are exclusive of taxes. These prices are subject to change at any time in our sole discretion.
6. ACCEPTANCE OF YOUR ORDER
6.1. Once you have placed your order, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order. This email is not an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received your order.
6.2. Acceptance of the order and completion of the contract between you and Damas will be perfected when we dispatch the products to you at which time you will receive a second email containing you tracking number, and confirming that your order has been dispatched. The sale contract is therefore concluded in the United Arab Emirates. Neither our third party payment processor nor our nominated courier has the authority to accept an order on behalf of Damas.
6.3. We reserve the right not to accept or fulfil your order in the event, that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, that shipping restrictions apply to a particular product, that the product ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn, or that you do not meet the eligibility criteria set-out within these Terms. Furthermore, we may refuse to process your order for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party in this respect.
6.4. Though we make every effort to make sure details on our Website are accurate, we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing of products. If we discover an error in the pricing of a product in your order, we will let you know as soon as possible. We shall be under no obligation to accept or fulfil an order for a product that was advertised at an incorrect price and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted or is in transit. If you order a product that is priced incorrectly for any reason, we will email or telephone you to inform you that we have not accepted your order and/or that the relevant part of your order has been cancelled. If you have already paid for the products, we shall refund the full amount as soon as we are able. In the event that products are recalled in transit, we will process your refund once the products have been returned to us.
7.1. Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard and any other methods which may be clearly advertised on the Website from time to time. Once the transaction is complete, the payment will be debited and cleared from your account and you will then be redirected to the Website. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer.
7.2. If the issuer of your credit/debit card refuses to authorize payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

7.4. Furthermore, we take reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide us when accessing or ordering from the Website.

8.3. We insure each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. We require a signature for any products delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased products passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment by Damas, and transfer of responsibility in the same way. The products are your responsibility from the time we deliver them to the address you gave us.
