TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. These terms and conditions will apply to the purchase of the goods by you (the Customer or you). By pre-ordering any of the Goods, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
2. We intend that these terms and conditions apply only to a Contract entered into by you as a Consumer. If this is not the case, you must tell us, so that we can provide you with a different contract with terms which are more appropriate for you and which might, in some respects, be better for you (e.g. by giving you rights as a business).

Price and Payment

21. Prices and charges do not include VAT at the rate applicable at the time of the Pre-Order.
22. Except in the event of a manifest error (see below, paragraph 23), any price quoted for the Goods is valid for a maximum period of one day from the day on which you see it on the Website, unless we expressly withdraw it at an earlier time.
23. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your pre-order so that, where the correct price of the Goods at your pre-order date is less than our stated price at your pre-order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price of the Goods at your pre-order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your pre-order.
24. If we accept and process your Pre-Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any goods provided to you.
25. You must pay by submitting your credit or debit card details with your Pre-Order. We will charge your debit or credit card immediately.
You will be charged the down payment Price of the Product(s) at the time of placing the Pre-Order. All Pre-Orders are handled through the Tilt/Open payment gateway. Accepted methods of payment are Visa, Master Card, American Express in addition to other methods as may be made available from time-to-time by the payment gateway provider. Your placing of a Pre-Order constitutes your express agreement to the Company of charging the full Price of the Product(s) at such time.
26. The costs of delivery in relation to any Pre-Order will be displayed to you on our Website at the time you submit a Pre-Order.
27. Although the Company will make every effort to begin shipping Products as soon as reasonably practicable, you understand and agree that there may be delays. An Estimated time of delivery (ETD) is therefore subject to change, and the Company does not represent or warrant that it will be able to ship the Product by the ETD. In the event of a delay outside of our control, and after we’ve done everything possible to minimize the delay, the Company is not responsible for any damages that may occur as a result, nor shall it be obligated, except as set forth in these Pre-Order Terms, to provide any discounts, refunds or credits due to any such delays. Products will be shipped in the order in which Pre-Orders are received by the Company. We will provide you updates with respect to such a delivery schedule.
28. If you were entitled to treat the Contract at an end, but do not do so, you are not prevented from canceling the Pre-Order for any Goods or rejecting Goods that have been delivered within 15 days provided that the following apply:
- The CityCrop device had not been used,
- Products must be packed in their original packaging, including all accessories, manuals, and documentation. If an accessory missing from the return, you will be subject to charges for these missing pieces,
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you if the item met the conditions for the full refund. If the return is approved, then your refund will be processed within two weeks, and a credit will be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within 2-7 days.
If the Goods have been delivered, you must return them to us at your expense before your payments made under the Contract will be returned.
29. We generally deliver to addresses in the European Union. If, however, we accept a Pre-Order for delivery outside these areas, you may need to pay additional import duties or other taxes for which you have the sole responsibility to arrange and pay accordingly.
30. If you, or your nominee fail, through no fault of our own, to take delivery of the Goods at the Delivery Location, we may charge you the reasonable costs of storing and redelivering the Goods. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange delivery or collection we may end the Contract.
31. You agree we may deliver the Goods in installments if we suffer a shortage of stock or for any other genuine and fair reason, subject to the above delivery provisions, and provided you are not liable for extra charges.
32. We may have to suspend the supply of Goods in order to:
• deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
• update the Goods to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; or
• make changes to the Goods as requested by you or notified by us to you.
Risk and Title
33. Risk of damage to, or loss of, any Goods will pass to you when the Goods are delivered to you. You must, if reasonably practicable, examine the Goods before accepting them.
34. You do not own the Goods until we have received payment in full. If full payment is overdue we can choose, by notice to cancel any delivery and end any right to use the Goods still owned by you, in which case you must return the Goods or, if you reside in the United Kingdom only, allow us to collect them.
Conformity and Guarantee
35. We are under a legal duty to supply Goods that are in conformity with this Contract.
36. Upon delivery, the Goods will:
• be of satisfactory quality;
• be reasonably fit for any particular purpose for which you buy the Goods which, before the Contract is made, you made known to us (unless you do not actually rely, or it is unreasonable for you to rely, on our skill and judgment) and be fit for any purpose held out by us or set out in the Contract; and
• conform to their description.
37. The guarantee at paragraph 37 is in addition to your legal rights in relation to Goods that are faulty or not as described.
Your right to cancel
38. Subject as stated in these Terms and Conditions, you can cancel this Contract without giving any reason at any time from the date of the Contract until the day which is 14 from the day on which you (or your nominee) receive the Pre-Order contract (the “Cancellation Period”), and receive a full refund.
39. If you cancel this Contract within the Cancellation Period, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, except the cost of any missing parts or damaged parts as per clause 28, the delivery cost, and bank charges incurred during payment processing.
• deductions for loss in value of any Goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (i.e. handling beyond the sort that might be reasonably allowed in a shop). This is because you are liable for that loss and, if that deduction is not made, you must pay us the amount of that loss. If we refund you the price paid before we are able to inspect the goods and later discover you have handled them in an unacceptable way, you must pay us an appropriate amount.
To exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel this Contract by sending a clear statement setting out your decision to cancel your Pre-Order to email@example.com

42. We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
43. If you have received Goods in connection with the Contract which you have cancelled, you must send back the Goods without delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate to us your cancellation of this Contract.

44. We will pay the cost of the return for all Goods ordered as part of the Pre-Order sale.
Our right to end the Contract
45. We may end the Contract for Goods at any time by writing to you if you do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver the Goods to you or collect them from us.
46. You must compensate us if we end the Contract in the situation set out in paragraph 47 above. We will refund any money you have paid in advance for Goods we have not provided but we may deduct or charge you reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your breaking the Contract.
47. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking the Contract, or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. 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.
48. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Goods (including the right to receive Goods which are: as described and match information we provided to you and any sample or model seen or examined by you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; supplied with reasonable skill and care and, where installed by us, correctly installed); and for defective Goods under UK Consumer Protection Legislation.

50. To the extent permitted under law, in no event shall CityCrop’s liability for damages arising in connection with any goods exceed the purchase price of the goods paid by you. These limitations will apply whether the liability arises in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability, under statute or otherwise.

Changes to these terms and conditions

Other important terms
53. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organization. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the Contract. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end the Contract within [30 days] of us telling you about it and we will refund you any payments you have made in advance for Goods not delivered.
54. You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing. However, you may transfer our guarantee to a person who has acquired the Goods. We may require the person to whom the guarantee is transferred to provide reasonable evidence that they are now the owner of the Goods.
55. Nobody else has any rights under this Contract (except someone you pass your guarantee on to). This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.

57. 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.
58. The Contract (including any non-contractual matters) is governed by the law of England and Wales.
59. We try to avoid any dispute, so we deal with complaints in the following way: If a dispute occurs customers should contact us to find a solution.
