This page, together with the documents referred, tells you the terms and conditions for which Sotoqvist supplies any of the products listed on the Website and the terms for which you may use our Website.

1. How the contract is formed between you and Sotoqvist
1.1 After placing an order you will receive an e-mail from Sotoqvist acknowledging that we have received your order. This does not mean that your order has been accepted. Placing an order only constitutes an offer to Sotoqvist to buy a product.
1.2 All orders are subject to acceptance by Sotoqvist and are subject to availability. Acceptance of an order will be confirmed via e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched (the Shipping Confirmation). The contract between you and Sotoqvist is formed only when Sotoqvist sends you the Shipping Confirmation.
1.3 The Contract will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Shipping Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Shipping Confirmation.
1.4 In the event that Sotoqvist is unable to determine your residential address your order will not be valid. Sotoqvist claims the right in individual cases, to refuse orders.
2. Delivery and Shipping Charges
2.1 We will attempt to fulfill your order by the delivery date set out in the Shipping Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, within a reasonable time of the date of the Shipping Confirmation, normally within 3-5 days. Delivery dates are not guaranteed and delays may occur.
2.2 Sotoqvist ships all orders within Sweden using Posten and to all other countries using UPS, DHL and/or FedEx.
3. Unclaimed packages
3.1 If an order cannot be delivered or collected at a pick-up center, or if a shipment will be returned to us due to incorrect address, Sotoqvist charges 100 SEK as compensation for shipping, handling and other expenses (for shipments within Sweden). For all returned shipments from abroad, the customer will be responsible for all shipping charges related to the shipment.
4. Price and payment
4.1 The price of any Products will be as displayed on our website, except in the case of an error. Unless otherwise stated, these prices do not include delivery costs and payment fees, which will be added to the total amount due.
4.2 All prices include Swedish VAT at 25% (Norway excluded). All countries within the European Union are shipped on a Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) basis, which means that taxes and duties are included in the price at checkout. Countries outside the European Union are shipped on a Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) basis, which means that the prices displayed are exclusive of all taxes and duties, as well as Swedish VAT. International orders are subject to and may incur taxes and duties as determined by the customs agency within the destination country. Payment of any duties and taxes is the responsibility of the recipient. Occasionally this may be listed as an additional postage fee. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however Sotoqvist has no control over such fees.
4.3 Prices are liable to change at any time at Sotoqvists discretion, but changes will not affect any orders for which Sotoqvist have already sent a Shipping Confirmation.
4.4 Sotoqvists website contains an amount of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our website may be incorrectly priced. Sotoqvist verifies all prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, if a Product’s correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
4.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mispricing.

In this case, you will receive a full refund of the price paid for the Products in accordance with Clause 6.
