When the purchase order is completed, a receipt confirming the purchase order will be sent to the e-mail address that the Customer has registered. Once this confirmation receipt is sent by Ortofon, the purchase agreement is entered and binding on the Parties. Receipt of such order confirmation does not mean that the order has been processed nor guarantee that the selected items are in stock.
Ortofon reserves its right to cancel any order and not supply products at its sole discretion. Ortofon shall give notice to the Customer hereof as soon as possible via e-mail and any payment made for the products shall be refunded in full.
