Africa Magna Terms of Sale
These Terms of Sale will govern all orders, purchases, and sales transactions that you ("you" or "your" refers to the customers of our Site (www.african-archaeology.de) enter into at our Site ("we," "us," or "our" refers to Africa Magna Verlag, Frankfurt). You agree to be bound by these Terms of Sale when you place an order. These terms and conditions of this Terms of Sale are subject to change without notice at any time. The terms and conditions posted on our Site at the time that you place an order or make a purchase will govern that particular order or purchase.
All customer orders are processed via electronic transmission methods. Orders will be processed within 2 business days.
We accept payments by a Visa or MasterCard credit card for orders at our Site, as well as bank transfer and Eurocheque or international money orders. Your credit card payment information is subject to verification and pre-authorization by the issuing bank and us. You will be billed for the total amount of the purchase transaction including shipping, handling, taxes, and any other applicable charges. You are responsible for sales taxes, shipping and freight charges, customs, duties and all other taxes and costs associated with the order. For bank transfer payments, you will receive a pre-invoice with banking details. For Eurocheques or International money orders, we request you to add EUR 7,- to the total amount of your order for banking charges.
Orders are not binding upon us until we notify you by e-mail of our acceptance of such order. We retain title to goods that you purchase at our Site until we have received your payment and thereafter such title will pass to.
In the event that we are not able to verify and/or pre-authorize your credit card payment information, we will cancel your order and notify you by e-mail. We reserve the right to cancel any orders or purchases at our sole discretion.
Your order will be shipped by the following business days provided that your credit card payment has been pre-approved by the issuing bank. In the event that we are not able to fulfill your order because of inadequate inventory, we will notify you and advise you of alternative options that are available (e.g., delete unavailable items from your order so we can ship the remaining items on your order, ship to you at a later date when all ordered items are available, etc.). All domestic shipping will be handled via Ground delivery and should take 2 to 5 business days to arrive, depending on your location.
International shipping within Europe will be handled by ground delivery and should take 5 to 14 business days to arrive, depending on your location. For oversea addressees, ground delivery can take between 14 days and 4 months to arrive, depending on your location. Actual shipping times vary for each country and your local customs officials or postal authorities may delay deliveries. For oversea addressees, we therefore recommend to upgrade for priority mail. The additional costs for priority mail are depending on the amount of your order. Please contact us for information about these additional costs. Your shipping costs for such service will be in addition to any applicable taxes, customs and import duties (these costs vary by country). Your local customs officials will charge you for any customs, import duties and tariffs that owed on your shipment when they receive that shipment. Delivery to certain locations may require alternative shipping arrangements, in which case we will take all reasonable steps to secure such shipping arrangements and notify you accordingly. We may not be able to deliver shipments to certain countries or territories (e.g., due to export restrictions, embargoes, etc.).
