2.2 A Buyer may be either an individual person of age (at least 18 years old) or any legal person, who acknowledges, prior to entry into a sale and purchase transaction or use of any other services rendered by EXPRESSO, that it has made itself familiar with the Conditions, agrees with them and undertakes to comply with them.
2.3 If a Buyer who is an individual person has not become of age (18 years of age), then in entering into a sale and purchase transaction he/she shall acknowledge that any transaction being concluded by him/her with the Seller is approved by his/her official representative in accordance with law, or that he/she, on his/her part, shall perform the conditions of the transaction at the expense of the resources furnished to him/her by his/her official representative or by a third party with the permission of the official representative, and that the resources have been furnished for the purpose of entry into the transaction or for the unrestricted use.
3.1 All prices for the Products sold at the EXPRESSO are specified in Euro and are inclusive of the turnover tax applicable in the Republic of Estonia as of the time of the sale and purchase transaction, as well as of other state or local taxes.
3.2 In addition to payment of the cost of the Products, the Buyer undertakes to pay the value of delivery of the Products purchased by him/her as far as the place of delivery (hereinafter – the Transportation Expenses) in accordance with the Delivery terms and rates of EXPRESSO (hereinafter – the EXPRESSO’s Delivery Terms) established subject to the method of delivery chosen by the Buyer, country of destination, size of a package and weight of a Product.
3.3 The Seller is entitled to change prices of the Products at any time without any prior notice. If the Seller changes prices of the Products after acceptance of the order for the Product by the Buyer, the Seller undertakes to sell the Products to the Buyer at the price applicable as at the time of entry by the Buyer into an agreement of sale and purchase, i.e., at the time when the Buyer has paid for the Products in compliance with paragraphs 4.9. or 4.10. of the Conditions and when the purchase and sale transaction was deemed to have been concluded in accordance with the condition specified in paragraph 4.11. If the price changed by the Seller turns out to be less than that applicable at the time of entry into the sale and purchase transaction between it and the Buyer, the Buyer shall not be entitled to demand that the Seller compensate the difference in the price or that the Products be sold at the lower price which was fixed after the entry into the sale and purchase transaction.
3.4 If a mistake occurs (a technical failure, worker’s error or another circumstance) as a result of which the price of a Product in the EXPRESSO is disproportionately low as opposed to the market price for such Product, and if the Seller has not specified that such price is fixed with a discount granted by it for the Product or with any other discount, the Seller reserves the right to refuse from the terms specified in paragraph 6.8. of the Conditions and not to sell the Product to the Buyer at the wrong price fixed as a result of the technical failure provided that the Seller has not yet sent the Product to the Buyer to the place of delivery.
3.5 In using the EXPRESSO the Buyer shall bear in mind that due to special technical computing aspects the condition of the warehouse at EXPRESSO and the availability of the Products therein may be shown with a time delay and may, therefore, differ from the reality. The Buyer shall also take into consideration that the Products he/she desires shall only be reserved for him/her at the Seller’s warehouse after the Seller issues a relevant invoice and after it is paid by the Buyer on the terms as enlisted in these Conditions. Therefore, the Seller shall not be liable if at the time of execution of the transaction by the Buyer the Products he/she desired were stated as “available” while, in the process of performance of the sale and purchase transaction it turns out that the Seller’s warehouse has run out of the Products desired by the Buyer (the Products are stated as “not available at the warehouse”). Such being the case, the transaction for sale and purchase of such Products shall be deemed to have been automatically cancelled and the Seller shall not be liable for any possible losses inflicted to the Buyer as a result. The Seller shall also not be liable if after the Buyer has made payment for the Products the Goods are found to be out of stock. Such being the case, the Seller shall be entitled to cancel the agreement with the Buyer on the basis of the terms as specified in paragraph 6.8. of the Conditions and the Buyer shall not be entitled to demand that the Seller fulfill the agreement of sale and purchase or reimburse any damage.
3.6 In addition, the Buyer undertakes to take into consideration, while using the EXPRESSO, the fact that the photographs in the “Product Information” Section are placed for illustrative purposes and may be somewhat different from the actual appearance of the Products.
