- you are an individual age  or older; and

A bank will generally be acceptable to us if it authorizes shanghaitang.com to process a charge or charges on your credit card in the amount of the total purchase price for the merchandise which you are purchasing.
We reserve the right to refuse to supply multiple quantities of an item being shipped to any single customer or postal address.
By making an offer to purchase merchandise, you expressly authorize us to perform credit checks and, where we feel that it is necessary, to transmit or to obtain information about you to or from third parties from time to time, including but not limited to your credit-card number or credit reports (including credit reports for your spouse if you reside in a community property jurisdiction) but only
- to authenticate your identity;
- to check the validity of your credit card;
- to obtain an initial credit card authorization; and/or
- to authorize individual purchase transactions.
All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. We offer products for sale that are in stock and available for dispatch from our distribution centers.
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order (“your order has been received” email). This email is NOT an acceptance of your order, just a confirmation that we have received it.
We reserve the right, with or without notice, to cancel or reduce the quantity of product ordered, in our sole discretion, if we determine your order violates our Terms and Conditions.
Unless you cancel your order beforehand in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, acceptance of your order and completion of the contract between you and us will be completed when we send an email to you to confirm that the goods have been dispatched (“your order has been shipped” email).
This confirmation email will be sent to the email address given in your order form and will detail products ordered, payment method, cost (including VAT and shipment charges).
You must check that all the details on this confirmation email are correct and contact us as soon as possible if any details are incorrect.
If your order has not been accepted, you will receive an email from us explaining the reasons.
We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, not to accept your order. In particular, we will not accept your order if, for example:
- we are unable to obtain authorization for payment;
- shipping restrictions apply to a particular item;
- the item ordered is out of stock or does not satisfy our quality control standards and is withdrawn; or
- you do not meet the Terms of Eligibility set out above within these Terms and Conditions.
We may also refuse to process and therefore accept a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion.
We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our:
- withdrawing any merchandise from the Site whether or not that merchandise has been sold;
- removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Site;
- refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun but before goods have been shipped to you.
The sales contract concluded for the online purchase will be subject to the standard terms and conditions of sales of Shanghai Tang.

We are unable to offer price adjustment on items originally purchased in a sale or on any special promotion items that are temporarily reduced in price. Once an item has been purchased at a discounted sale price, no price adjustment will be offered should the item be further marked-down.
Payment can be made by Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards and any other methods which may from time to time be clearly advertised on the Site. Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon dispatch of your order by us.
You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. These may include the credit checks described under " Your eligibility for purchase" described above. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. You will remain liable for the purchase price of your order if for any reason your credit card company fails to pay us in full for the amount charged to your account.
To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple and secure, the Site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
Furthermore, we will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our reasonable control to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure, [but in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorized access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from the Site.] [Note that the bracketed provision might be unenforceable in some U.S. states]
Insurance and delivery
We insure each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. We require a signature for any goods delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you accept that evidence of a signature by them (or at that delivery address) is evidence of our delivery and fulfillment and transfer of responsibility in the same way as if you were the recipient.
Please note that we aim to dispatch all orders within 48 hours. Estimated delivery times (as mentioned into our Help section of our Shop-On-Line) are to be used as a guide only and commence from the date of dispatch. We are not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes or any situation or circumstance which is not within our reasonable control.
