4. Ordering of products

Products are ordered by selecting the product and number of items from the Online Store's collection. The products selected by the Customer are added to their shopping cart, where the number of items can be amended and products removed before the order is confirmed and paid for. The Online Store's technical systems automatically check the availability of items selected to the shopping cart every time the Customer visits the shopping cart page. The availability of a product in the shopping cart may change before the payment transaction.

The order becomes binding on the Customer after the Customer submits their order (see, however, section "Right of Cancellation"). The Customer shall be requested to check the contents of their order carefully before confirming it. The Customer shall acknowledge and accept that the order entails a payment obligation.

Vallila shall send the Customer a confirmation of contract to the email address notified by the Customer and, if the Customer has registered as an Online Store user, to the mailbox of the Customer's customer account. The Customer shall be responsible for ensuring that the confirmation of contract corresponds to the order made by the Customer.

Vallila is entitled to decline an order. The order shall be binding on Vallila when Vallila has delivered the contract confirmation (see more closely section “Confirmation of contract”) to the Customer.

Vallila strives to provide up-to-date, correct information on the products available in the Online Store but cannot, however, guarantee the availability or sufficiency of the products available for sale. Only a limited amount of certain products may be manufactured or the products may otherwise become temporarily unavailable.

If, after receiving the order, it transpires that the ordered product has become temporarily or permanently unavailable, despite the balance amount notified to the Customer by the system, Vallila shall notify the Customer without delay using the contact information provided by the Customer.

If the ordered product is no longer available or the product can only be obtained after over one month has elapsed from the date of the order, Vallila undertakes to compensate the Customer in full for the price already paid for the ordered product, and the order shall be considered cancelled in respect of the said product. In such a case, Vallila’s customer service shall contact the Customer, and the Customer may choose not to have their order cancelled by accepting a longer delivery time or by having the ordered product replaced with another product.

 

8. Confirmation of contract

When Vallila has checked and accepted the order, Vallila shall send a confirmation of the contract to the email address notified by the Customer and, if the Customer has registered as an Online Store customer, to the mailbox of the Customer's Online Store customer account.

Vallila.co.uk delivers products to home addresses in the United Kingdom. Vallilastore.com delivers products to home addresses in the European Union (excluding Finland, Sweden and United Kingdom).

The ordered products shall be delivered by GLS.

If the order contains products with varying delivery times, Vallila shall be entitled to deliver the products to the Customer separately. In this case, the Customer shall only be charged for a single delivery.

Product delivery times depend on the availability of the product and the destination of the delivery. Vallila strives to deliver products as soon as possible and no later than 30 days after concluding the contract.

Failure to collect the product from the place of delivery when the Customer has not specifically submitted a notice of cancellation shall be deemed as a cancellation of the product order.

If the Customer fails to collect the delivered product from the place of delivery within the time limit, resulting in the product returning to Vallila, and does not specifically notify Vallila of cancellation within 14 days of receiving a delivery notice, the Customer shall be deemed to have cancelled the product order. In this case, Vallila shall be entitled to charge the Customer a processing fee in the amount of EUR 10. Vallila shall be entitled to set off the aforementioned costs against payments from the Customer to be credited to the Customer before returning said payments to the Customer.

 

10. Delay in delivery

Should the delivery of products be delayed from the estimated date, Vallila shall strive to notify the Customer of such delay using the Customer's contact information and shall provide a new estimated delivery date for the product.

The Customer is entitled to invoke their rights pursuant to the Consumer Protection Act with respect to delay in product delivery. Vallila shall not be held liable for delays or failures in delivery that arise from the Customer (e.g. the Customer providing erroneous contact information, neglecting to inform Vallila of changes to their contact information, being absent on the agreed-delivery date and remaining out of contact).

 

11. Inspection, customer complaints and liability for defects

The Customer must inspect the delivery immediately after having received it to ensure that products delivered are intact and are not otherwise defective. The Customer shall also ensure that the delivery contains all the products ordered by the Customer.

Should the Customer notice any deficiencies in the delivery or product, the Customer must notify Vallila's customer service thereof without delay and at the latest within fourteen (14) days (tel. +358 20 776 7700, email: onlinestore@vallilainterior.fi).

If a deficiency is confirmed in the delivery or product, Vallila shall be entitled in the first instance to rectify said deficiency within a reasonable period of time or replace the product with a defect-free item. Vallila shall be liable for any defect in the product in accordance with the consumer protection legislation in force.

 

12. Right of cancellation

The Customer shall be entitled to return a product purchased from the Online Store without any reason within fourteen (14) days of receiving the said product by specifically notifying Vallila thereof, for example, by completing an online cancellation form in the Online Store or by sending the notice of cancellation to onlinestore@vallilainteiror.fi.

The Customer must submit a notice of cancellation at the latest within the aforementioned 14 days of receiving the product. The online cancellation form can be found on Vallila's website.

Vallila shall compensate the Customer for the price of the returned goods in addition to remunerating the Customer for the delivery costs of the cancelled products (excluding additional costs arising from the Customer choosing a means of delivery deviating from Vallila's cheaper standard method of delivery) using the method of payment through which the Customer paid for the product if the Customer expressly refuses to accept payment of the return by other means.

Vallila shall refund the payments it has received without delay, however, at the latest within fourteen (14) days of receiving the Customer's notice of cancellation. Vallila shall be entitled to withhold reimbursement of payments until they have received the product back or until the Customer has provided proof that they have returned the product. The Customer shall not incur costs from the reimbursement of payments.

If the Customer cancels the product, the price the Customer paid for the product will be credited to the Customer, even if the price of the product has changed at a later date.

When the Customer has received the product, they must keep it in an essentially unchanged and unreduced condition until they have decided to keep the said product. If the returned product has been used contrary to the duty of care as provided in law, Vallila shall be entitled to charge an amount corresponding to the decrease in value up to the full price of the product.

 

13. Force majeure

Vallila shall not be liable for any defects in its products, delays in deliveries or other breaches of agreement that are attributable to causes beyond Vallila's reasonable control (force majeure).
