      • if, at UBU’s sole discretion, it believes you are using the UBU wallet for inappropriate purposes or in contravention to any of the terms and conditions of this agreement.
  • Conclusion of sales and availability of stock
    • Registered users may place orders for Goods, which UBU or the Third Party Seller may accept or reject. Whether or not UBU or the Third Party Seller 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 a payment authorisation by UBU for the Goods.
    • NOTE: UBU or the Third Party Seller 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 UBU or the Third Party Seller (as may be appropriate) come into effect (the “Sale”). This is regardless of any communication from UBU stating that your order or payment has been confirmed. UBU will indicate the rejection of your order (by UBU itself or the Third Party Seller) by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount of UBUS already paid.
    • After delivery or your collection of the Goods, you may return the Goods only in accordance with the respective Third Party Seller’s Returns Policy.
    • You acknowledge that stock of all Goods on offer is limited and that pricing may change at any time without notice to you. In the case of Goods for sale by UBU, UBU will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are discontinued on the Website. However, we cannot guarantee the availability of stock. When Goods are no longer available after you have placed an order, UBU and/or the Third Party Seller will notify you and you will be entitled to a refund of any UBUS already paid by you for such Goods.
    • In the case of Goods for sale by a Third Party Seller, UBU relies on inventory information supplied by the relevant Third Party Seller and UBU accordingly bears no liability for any inaccuracies in the information supplied to it. Consequently, should you order any Goods from a Third Party Seller which are in fact sold-out or no longer available, any resulting dispute should be resolved between you and the relevant Third Party Seller, your respective rights and obligations being as set out in these Terms and Conditions.
    • Certain Goods may not be purchased for re-sale. Should we suspect that any such Goods are being purchased for re-sale, we are entitled to cancel your order immediately on notice to you.
  • Payment
    • All transactions are encrypted using appropriate encryption technology.
    • Whether the Goods are for sale by UBU or a Third Party Seller, payment for the Goods can only be made with UBUS via the Website.
  • Delivery of goods
    • UBU does not offer delivery of Goods to you. You may elect to take a delivery option provided by the Third Party Seller at your own risk.
    • Where it accepts your delivery request, the Third Party Seller will deliver the Goods to you as soon as reasonably possible, but no later than 30 (thirty) business days of receipt of your payment (“Delivery Period”). The Third Party Seller will notify you if it is unable to deliver the Goods during the Delivery Period.
  • Errors
    • We shall take all reasonable efforts to accurately reflect the description, availability and purchase price of Goods on the Website. However, should there be any errors of whatsoever nature on the Website (which are not due to our gross negligence), we shall not be liable for any loss, claim or expense relating to a transaction based on any error, save – in the case of any incorrect purchase price – to the extent of refunding you for any amount already paid, or otherwise as set out in the Third Party Seller’s returns policy.
    • UBU shall not be bound by any incorrect information regarding Goods displayed on any third party websites.
  • Gift Vouchers & Coupons
    • UBU or Third Party Sellers may from time to time make physical or electronic gift vouchers (“Gift Vouchers”) and promotional coupons or discounts (“Coupons”) available for use on the Website towards the purchase of Goods. Gift Vouchers and Coupons can only be redeemed while they are valid and their expiry dates cannot be extended.
    • UBU is not responsible for any harm due to the loss, unauthorised use or unauthorised distribution of a Gift Voucher, after it has delivered the Gift Voucher to you or the email address nominated by you.
  • Third Party Sellers
    • UBU only offers Goods that are for sale by a Third Party Seller. UBU only provides the platform to facilitate transactions between Third Party Sellers and UBU customers. UBU is neither the buyer nor the seller of these Goods, unless otherwise specified.
    • The Sale formed on acceptance of your order for Goods is therefore solely between the you as the registered user and such Third Party Seller. UBU is not a party to the sale.
    • The Third Party Seller is solely responsible for fulfilment of delivery of the Goods. The Third Party Seller is also responsible to provide an invoice to the registered user if required.
    • UBU disclaims any and all liability, including express or implied warranties, whether oral or written, for the goods provided by any Third party Seller. YOU, AS THE USER, ACKNOLEDGES THAT NO REPRESENTATION HAS BEEN MADE BY UBU AS TO THE FITNESS OF THE GOODS OFFERED BY THE THIRD PARTY SELLER FOR YOUR INTENDED PURPOSE.
    • UBU ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR PRODUCTS OFFERED AND/OR SOLD BY THIRD PARTY SELLERS. Your dealings with any Third Party Seller mentioned on or found on the Website are solely between you and such Third Party Seller, and are subject to any terms, conditions, privacy policies, warranties or representations associated with such dealings. Your dealings with a Third Party Seller are at your sole risk and, as set forth above, are without warranties or legal liability of any kind on the part of UBU.
    • Not all Third Party Sellers are registered VAT (Value-Added Tax) vendors. Only Third Party Sellers who are registered VAT vendors may charge VAT on Goods sold and issue a tax invoice in respect thereof. If a Third Party Seller is not a registered VAT Vendor, it may not charge VAT on Goods sold and will not be in a position to issue a tax invoice in respect thereof.
