4. Order Processing and Contract Formation
Once you have submitted and confirmed your order(s) using the Pandora Online Store, PAP will send an email to the email address you provided acknowledging receipt ("Order Receipt Confirmation Email") of the order(s) and setting out details of the ordered Product(s).
PAP may choose not to accept any order in PAP's sole discretion including without limitation in the case of abnormal orders and orders which PAP suspects are not placed in good faith.
After receiving your order(s), PAP will check that the relevant Product(s) is (are) in stock. A contract for the sale of Products between you and PAP will only be formed when PAP emails you confirming that all or part the Product(s) is/are still available and has/have been dispatched ("Shipment Confirmation Email"). The order is formed on sending the Shipment Confirmation Email whether or not you actually receive such email.
The contract for the sale of Products will relate only to those Products whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Shipment Confirmation Email. 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 Shipment Confirmation Email.
In the Order Receipt Confirmation Email you will receive a copy of these Sales Terms, however you are encouraged to download, save and/or print a copy of your Order Receipt Confirmation Email and these Sale Terms for your own records.
You have the option to cancel your order at any stage before you have received your Shipping Confirmation Email by contacting PAP Customer Care Centre. If you would like to cancel your order after you have received your Shipping Confirmation Email, please see the Return and Refund section below.
5. Prices, Shipping and Handling, and Charges
The price charged for a Product will be the price in effect at the time your order is placed and will be set out in the Order Receipt Confirmation Email and in your Shipping Confirmation Email.
In the event of a pricing error, whether on the Pandora Online Store or in an Order Receipt Confirmation Email or otherwise, you accept that PAP has the right to correct such error and charge the correct price or cancel the order. If the actual price is more than the amount shown on your Order Receipt Confirmation Email, PAP will notify you the correct price before processing your order, and your sole remedy in the event of such error is to cancel your order.
You acknowledge that even after PAP has sent you a Shipping Confirmation Email, if the pricing error is obvious and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a misprice, then PAP is under no obligation to provide a Product to you at an incorrect (lower) price.
Separate charges for shipping will be shown in your Order Receipt Confirmation Email and can be viewed on a summary screen prior to finalizing your order.
Prices for Products and for shipping and handling are liable to change at any time, but changes will not normally affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Shipping Confirmation Email (save in the case of a manifest pricing error as described above).
Payment shall be made by one of the methods you have selected during the checkout process (being VISA, MasterCard or American Express)
Approved credit card types are listed in the order checkout form in the Pandora online store. In the event PAP does not receive the relevant credit card company's authorization, PAP reserves the right to cancel your order.
The value of your purchase(s) will be settled from the applicable card once PAP has sent you the Shipping Confirmation Email.
PAP has entrusted Yamato Transport (HK) Limited and SF Express (Hong Kong) Limited as the carriers for product delivery. You should allow 1-2 business days for standard delivery for in stock items, provided that your payment is received before 12pm on the day that the order is placed. Delivery shall in any event take place within 30 days after dispatch of the Shipment Confirmation Email. PAP reserves the right to substitute another carrier of equal or lesser cost to deliver your order. If Express Delivery/shipping is required, please select that as your shipping choice.
If PAP cannot deliver your order within the period specified in your Shipping Confirmation Email, then PAP will contact you and you may choose to cancel your order and PAP will provide you with a full refund. You agree and accept that such refund is the full and adequate remedy in the circumstances and you will waive your right to claim any further remedy.
If you unreasonably defer delivery or delay the receipt of delivery after PAP has notified you that they have tried to deliver the ordered items to you, or if you have provided them with an incorrect delivery address which results in an unsuccessful delivery, you need to contact the carrier promptly for collection, failing which the delivery package will be returned to PAP within 3 days from the date of 2nd attempts of unsuccessful delivery. PAP reserves its rights to claim from you any loss occasioned by your neglect or refusal to take delivery, and also for a reasonable charge for the care and custody of the ordered items.
8. Events outside the control of PAP
PAP shall not be held responsible for delay or failure to perform, if the delay or failure is caused by any act, event, non-happening, omission accident or circumstance beyond its reasonable control including but not limited to:
•civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war;
•strikes or lock-outs (or other industrial action);

11. Title to Products
PAP retains full legal title to Products until it has received all amounts due on the ordered Products in full. The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership will pass to you when we receive payment in full for the Products ordered.

To cancel your order you must notify PAP Customer Care Centre either via email or by phone and arrange for return of the ordered items in accordance with the instructions given by PAP Customer Care Centre.
If you do not return the Products, PAP reserves the right to refuse a refund.

Once PAP has received and validated your returned Products, PAP will send you an email to confirm the validation. Your refund will then be processed by PAP and confirmed to you by email. In most circumstances, your refund will be processed within 30 (thirty) days of PAP's email to you confirming the receipt and validation of your returned Products.
