8. PAYMENT  

8.1. Payment by credit or debit card

You may pay by credit or debit card, as indicated on the Website or through the Customer Contact Centre.

When ordering on the Website, you will need to enter your payment details on the appropriate form. If you order by telephone, you will need to communicate to the Customer Contact Centre your credit or debit card number and your three- or four- digit security code that is printed on the back or the front of your card (CVV2/CVC2/CID). Your telephone conversation may be recorded for security and quality control purposes, except that any mention of your credit card information will not be recorded by our Customer Contact Centre, or will be fully encrypted and only used to process card transactions. Please refer to our Private Policy for more details about how and how long we may use or keep your personal information and the conversation recordings.

All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to ChangeStone, you will need to contact your card issuer directly to solve this problem, and ChangeStone will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

In order to process your order, we may carry out a pre-authorisation of your card. The amount of your purchase will be blocked on your card until your order is shipped to the shipping address you have provided to ChangeStone, at which time you will be sent a Confirmation of Order and your card will be charged the applicable purchase price. By submitting an offer to purchase ChangeStone products on the Website or through the Customer Contact Centre, you expressly authorise ChangeStone to perform such pre-authorisation and, where ChangeStone deems necessary, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties, including but not limited to your card number, to authenticate your identity, to validate your card, to obtain an initial card authorisation and to authorise individual purchase transactions. Please refer to our Private Policy for more details about how and how long we may use or keep your personal information.

After you place an order and select bank wire transfer as your method of payment, ChangeStone will wait until your payment is received before processing your order. If the funds are not credited into our bank account within seven (7) working days after you have placed your order, this order will be cancelled.

ChangeStone will not charge a fee for paying by bank wire transfer, but please ensure that we receive the full amount mentioned in the Acknowledgment of Order before we process your order. Please note that some financial institutions may charge you a fee for using a bank wire transfer.

8.3. Security

In order to secure your transaction and prevent fraud, ChangeStone will perform a credit card and anti-fraud check. By placing your order, you will be deemed to have authorised ChangeStone to perform such checks and, where ChangeStone deems necessary, from time to time to transmit or obtain information that you have provided to ChangeStone about you in order to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorisation and to authorise a particular purchase transaction.

14. CUSTOMERS’ RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL 

As a Customer based in the EU, you have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, you can contact our Customer Contact Centre (telephone number and email address indicated on our Website) to obtain a Return Number (RN), which we will confirm in writing. Alternatively, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or via e-mail).

If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by ChangeStone), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract.

We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.
