6. Conclusion of sales and availability of stock
Registered users may place orders for Goods, which Würth South Africa may accept or reject. Whether or not Würth accepts an order depends on the availability of Goods, correctness of the information relating to the Goods (including without limitation the price) and receipt of payment or payment authorisation by Würth for the Goods.
NOTE: Würth will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you or allowing you to collect them, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Würth come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from Würth stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. Würth will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.
