2. Ordering

2.1 Product Offering

The Products marketed via the Internet portal are presented in accordance with the legal recommendations and as accurately as possible.

4.1 Method of delivery

Delivery by carrier to your home:

The delivery of the order will be carried out by a specialised carrier to guarantee maximum protection, at the address provided at the time of purchase.

The delivery time may vary and depends on various circumstances. DEVICARE will duly inform you of the delivery times during the purchase process. You can also contact the company for further information.

Deliveries to all of Spain (Peninsula and Balearic Islands) and Portugal will be made within approximately 24-48 hours by the transport company NACEX.

If there are errors or lack of information, there may be delays in the original delivery date. The carrier may contact the customer for further information in order to complete these orders.Los envíos al extranjero pueden retrasarse debido a factores inesperados o controles aduaneros.

Unexpected service delays (caused, for example, by weather conditions, natural disasters or unforeseen events) add at least two to three working days to the estimated delivery date.

External factors, such as traffic, may affect delivery times.

Delivery times are not guaranteed and may be subject to change. Thus, deliveries may arrive earlier or later than the estimated delivery times.

The impossibility of delivering the Products on the agreed date by the carriers, due to the absence of the purchaser or of information on the need to resort to specific means of delivery, may result in the payment of additional delivery charges and/or the cancellation of the order by DEVICARE.

The risks of the Product are transferred to the buyer at the time of delivery to the designated address or, where applicable, to customs.

In the case of direct home delivery, without customs clearance, when the product cannot be delivered for reasons attributable to the purchaser, the risks shall be assumed by the purchaser from the date of the carrier's first attempt to deliver the Products.

In the case of purchase of several Products, where the dates of availability of each of them are different, DEVICARE shall propose to the purchaser to split his order. The risk shall be borne by the purchaser, for each product, as indicated above.

In the event of split delivery, the participation in the delivery costs shall be applied to each of the order's fractions. In the absence of delivery by instalments, delivery shall take place on the date of availability of all the Products ordered.

4.2 Shipping costs

During the purchase process you will be informed of the shipping costs that will be calculated automatically by the system.

Prices are approximate and in some cases may vary. The prevailing cost is the one that appears in the purchase summary before choosing the payment method.

Any deposit of Import Fees or Import Charges will be used to reimburse the Designated Carrier for the Actual Import Fees. Customer agrees that the Designated Carrier may disclose to DEVICARE the amount of actual import fees for products purchased.

You will not be charged any additional costs if the actual import fees are greater than the import fee deposit or import charges charged by DEVICARE. If the import fee deposit charged by DEVICARE is greater than the actual import fees, DEVICARE will refund the difference. Import charges are fixed and you will not be reimbursed if the import charges are greater than the actual import rates. After shipment of your order, you may contact the designated carrier specified on your shipment confirmation for details on actual import rates or to obtain documentation or receipts related to customs clearance.
