1. Orders

1.1 Product Offering

The Products are presented in accordance with legal regulations and are as accurate as possible.

There may be differences between the Products shipped and those shown on the Website or in the catalogue, primarily for handcrafted Products, each of which is unique, and Products for which technical or technological modifications have been made. You may not cancel your order or refuse delivery due to such differences, provided that they do not affect the essential features or quality of the Products. However, we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on the Website or in the catalogues matches the product colour, as the display of the colour depends in part upon the browser and monitor you are using. SELVA cannot be held liable for inaccuracies in the photographs on the Website.

1.2 Availability of Products

All orders for products are subject to availability and in this regard, in the event of supply difficulties or because products are no longer in stock, we reserve the right to give you information about substitute products of an equal or higher quality and value which you can order. If you do not wish to order the substitute products we will reimburse any monies that you may have paid.

1.2 Order Acceptance

By confirming your order, you are placing a firm order. The order becomes firm for SELVA when the payment is validated and the order is recorded.

All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the product has been dispatched (the “Delivery Confirmation”). The contract for the purchase of a product between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Delivery Confirmation.

2. Price Payment

2.1 Product Prices

Product prices are shown in EURO €, inclusive of taxes relating to Product sales including VAT. Prices are guaranteed until a new catalogue is published.

The price of any products will be as stipulated on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error. While we try to ensure that all prices on the website are accurate, errors may occur.

The prices on the website include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Shopping Guide. Prices are liable to change at any time, but (other than as set out above) changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.

2.2 Shipping Charges

Your products may be delivered by carrier or parcel service. The type of shipping will be specified when you place your order.

2.3 Payment

Payment shall be made in EURO €. The full price must be paid at the time of order, by credit card, bank transfer, or PAYPAL, unless otherwise stated when you place your order, sent to the following address:

Apartamento 174,
Sítio dos Pinheiros Altos,
Quinta do Lago, 8135-863, Almancil

If the bank transfer is not received within 8 days of the date you confirm your order, the order will be cancelled.

No charge will be made to your credit card until your order has been dispatched for delivery. However, if your form of payment is Paypal, the charge will be made the moment we confirm the order.

As part of an ongoing effort to fight online fraud, SELVA may sometimes be required to verify a customer’s bank details or identity before a delivery can be made. By ordering on the SELVA website, the customer agrees to provide the required details or proof of identity. If a satisfactory response is not given within the specified delay, SELVA reserves the right to cancel the order in question.

Orders are not recorded until payment has been validated, so no discounts or late charges can apply.

Payment with PayPal 

PayPal is a secure payment method which allows you to pay for your articles quickly without having to share your bank details with retail websites. You just have to provide your details when you create your PayPal account. They are then encrypted and secured for good. If you already have a PayPal account, you can use it on our website to pay for your purchases quickly and completely securely. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can still opt for this payment method. When the time comes to pay, you will be redirected to a PayPal page where you can enter your bank details (and choose whether to create a PayPal account or not).
