2.14 Methods of Ordering and Purchasing Products
The main way of ordering products from CENTROPEL is via the website of CENTROPEL, www.centropel.com, 24 hours a day, all days of the year.
You can also visit our headquarters at 1 Athanasiou Strakali St., 503 00, Siatista Kozanis and place your order live. However, you should previously call to make sure that the products you want are in the warehouse of our headquarters, if you want to receive them immediately after the completion of your order.
When ordering by fax or e-mail do not forget to include the phone number where we can contact you directly because, even if the information you sent us electronically is complete, we may have to confirm your order by phone.
At this point, however, we would like to reiterate that ordering through the website of CENTROPEL is the best method for retail orders, because it ensures the completeness of the order details, minimises any human factor problems that may arise (errors, oral misunderstandings, misinterpretations of orders etc).
We recommend that you use the telephone order only in the case of orders of products of large quantities, volume and/or weight and value, when consultation on how to send, receive, etc. is usually necessary.
2.15 Procedure of the Electronic Order of Products via the Website www.centropel.com
- Find the products you are interested in through the search engines or the various themed pages. Click on the “Add to cart” link below the product you are interested in and it will be added to your online “shopping cart”. You will be automatically redirected to the content of your Shopping Cart page. If you want to continue shopping, click on the “Continue Shopping” link. The products you have selected will remain in your Shopping Cart and you can continue shopping by selecting and adding other products at your Cart.
- When you have finished with your selections, from the contents page of your Shopping Cart click on the “Submit Order” link below the list of products you have in your cart and you will be transmitted via a secure SSL certified connection to a webpage, where you will be asked to specify a payment and shipping method.
For all phases of the order there is a help section on the pages of the different phases of the order. However, if you have the slightest question about the correct completion of your order, help is just a phone call away! The partners of CENTROPEL are available at any time to help you complete your order.
Once your order has been placed, you will receive an automated e-mail informing you of the items you ordered, their prices and the total cost of your order, and confirming the information you entered during the order, i.e., the shipping address and billing information (invoice or receipt, billing details, etc.). Once your order is forwarded for delivery, you will receive an e-mail informing you about it.
Finally, if your order is meant for a gift, you can fill in a message in the “Notes and special requests” field. This message will arrive with your order to the recipient of the gift, as a card (visiting card) with your name, in a white envelope.
2.16 Charges – Payment Methods
The online store www.centropel.com accepts the following three (3) payment methods via:
- Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard) up to 12 interest-free installments
- Deposit in a Bank Account of CENTROPEL (e-banking)
- PayPal service
2.17 Payment by Credit Card
Payment will be charged and received from the user’s account as soon as CENTROPEL receives his/her order and verifies his/her details. All credit card holders are subject to validity and authorisation checks by the card issuer. If the issuer of the user’s card refuses to give CENTROPEL authorisation for payment, the latter cannot be considered responsible for any delay or non-delivery of the order.
It is possible to pay by credit card in up to 12 interest-free installments.
CENTROPEL makes every reasonable effort to make the website as secure as possible.
We recommend using a Credit Card, as long as you have a MasterCard or VISA credit card. You can use it safely to pay for your products. The process of payment by credit cards is completely safe and is covered by the most modern security specifications on the CENTROPEL server. The process is extremely simple, fast and is done in just two steps. Analytically:
- Fill in your card details in the relevant form.
- In case of success your order will then be registered, while in case of failure you are informed accordingly.
The process is completely safe.
There is a great deal of “mythology” about the security of credit card payments over the Internet. They are MUCH SAFER than paying by credit card in a, e.g., restaurant, or a retail store! All card payments are processed through the Card Link by Eurobank electronic payment platform that uses TLS encryption with SSL encryption protocol, along with other bank-level security features.
Any attempt to spy on credit card information that may be attempted is in principle impossible, as it is absolutely impossible to decrypt the data circulated using the SSL protocol. Credit card details are not intercepted during the submission process, but by the Servers where they are stored. CENTROPEL does NOT SAVE your credit card details. That is why every time you order an item from us, and despite the fact that you may be an old customer, you will be asked for your card details again. This is certainly a small inconvenience compared to the security provided by not storing your card details.
2.18 Additional information about using a credit card
The CVC/CVV field is placed on the back of your credit card and is a three-digit number. It is asked for extra security and it protects you even more since it is very difficult for someone to know this field. To enter it, turn around and look at the back of your credit card. It is the three-digit number you will see and is usually located at the top right.
If there is a payment error (e.g., the connection is cut or you click on Cancel during the transfer), do not worry. Whatever happens, the transaction is recorded by us and your money will not be lost (of course, only if we take approval for your card and the amount is actually committed). The process is automated, controlled and there is no way to lose money.
2.19 Payment by deposit in a bank account
The user can deposit the amount in the following bank account:
IBAN: GR 8001408630863002330001944
Name of beneficiary: CENTROPEL SINGLE MEMBER P.C.
- If you order through the website of CENTROPEL, then the final exact amount will appear at the end of your order(s) and charges (applicable VAT, postal costs etc.).
- If you order by any other method, you will be informed by our partner who helped you submitting your order. We recommend the use of electronic banking (web banking), which is currently available from almost all banks nowadays because it significantly speeds up and secures the whole process.
In all cases, the money that should reach our account should be EXACTLY the amount listed at the end of your order, CLEAR, without any further charges or reservations. Especially in the case of Web Banking, when you are asked to specify who bears the costs (sender, recipient or both) you should choose “Sender” for both banks.
ATTENTION: We will start preparing your order as soon as the money appears in one of the above accounts.
2.20 Payment through PayPal service
PayPal offers a fast, easy and secure way to pay online without disclosing your card information. So, if you have a PayPal account you can pay for your orders by depositing in the PayPal account of CENTROPEL. The update towards CENTROPEL is done almost at the same time with your payment, and therefore we can immediately start the process of your order. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can easily open an account (for free) by following the simple and straightforward steps outlined in the PayPal Web Site. All you need to have is a credit card, or transfer money from one of your bank accounts to your PayPal account. Both depositing money via PayPal and creating a new account are 100% free.
Important Note: Paypal service is NOT available to wholesale customers.
2.21What is included in the price of the product that is in the catalogue of CENTROPEL?
The price that appears in product searches, or wherever a product price appears except for your Shopping Cart, includes the selling price of the product AND ALL taxes that charge it (VAT).
The Shopping Cart displays the full price analysis of all the products you have selected, as well as shipping and taxes in detail. Also, only if you are going to receive an invoice, the full resolution will also appear on the invoice you will receive along with the products you have ordered.
- Responsibility – Security
3.1 The content of the Website is provided “as it is”. Every effort is made for the security and validity of the content. However, CENTROPEL neither commits, nor does it guarantee or does it assume any responsibility regarding the content and security of the Website. The User accepts that he/she uses the published content and the offered services at his/her own risk. Users/visitors who do not trust CENTROPEL are invited not to visit or use the Website.
3.2 Users/visitors are encouraged to use anti-virus software, which is highly advised in order to keep them protected from both viruses and other malicious programmes and components. CENTROPEL states that it closely monitors the security level of its services on the web, by using programmes against the spread of viruses and malware. However, users/visitors, while browsing the Website, are advised to use protection software, because CENTROPEL bears absolutely no responsibility for any damage, harm, or infection from cyber viruses and/or other malicious programmes, in computer or other electronic means and devices in general, in the programmes and data of the user/visitor of our services, during the access and use of the Website, nor is it responsible for any damage related to inability to execute, errors, omissions, interruptions, defects, operation or transmission delays or system line drops, etc.
3.3 The visitors/users of the Website are explicitly prohibited from interfering in the format, function, services, content, databases and any element of the Website, using any mechanism, malicious or non-malicious software, electronic or non-electronic process, sending unwanted or harmful files, such as, for example, spam, viruses, malware, etc., which would affect, damage, inhibit, disrupt and generally interfere with its proper function. CENTROPEL reserves the right to seek redress for damages that may be caused to it by illegal behaviours, such as those mentioned above, as well as the criminal prosecution of the person(s) in charge.
3.4 CENTROPEL is absolved from any responsibility for the content that any third parties publish on the Website, as long as it meets the obligations of care and control prescribed by law.
3.5 For transactions via the Website, which will be carried out through the use of a credit card, it is explicitly stated that the legal holder of the credit card will be strictly liable. CENTROPEL cannot know the truth of the information provided by the user and hence considers the person providing the personal data to be the real subject of it. Therefore, in the contract with CENTROPEL, the use by the counterparty of the option that provides for the payment of the order by credit card and the consequent provision of the details of the legal holder of the credit card, binds the legal holder of the credit card, regardless of the individual who uses the credit card and provides the requested information. Therefore, the consent of the legal beneficiary is irrefutably presumed, as his/her credit card is permissibly and legally charged with the price of the sale. Any illegal or without the consent of the legal beneficiary use of a credit card, does not release the legal beneficiary from the obligations arising from the contract with the Website of CENTROPEL, nor from any claims of CENTROPEL for compensation from an illegal act or omission of the credit card user, due to the fact that the person directly contracted with CENTROPEL acted illegally or without his/her consent.
3.6 CENTROPEL is not responsible for side effects and damages from the use of ordered products, whether due to incorrect choice of products by the user, careless or incorrect use of the products, or the fault of the manufacturer, defects during construction, lack of information or instructions accompanying the products, quality of construction, safety of materials and actual defects. The liability of CENTROPEL in the case of a defective product is limited to the obligation to replace it, provided that the conditions of the law on the return of products are met and the terms of the return policy of CENTROPEL are respected.
3.7 CENTROPEL is not responsible for shortages in the availability of products for reasons independent of its operation (indicatively and not restrictively: reasons of force majeure, weakness and/or strike of suppliers, illegal conduct of third parties, and, in general, reasons not attributable to CENTROPEL’s fault).
3.9 CENTROPEL is not responsible for the defective condition of the delivered products, as long as it is not due to improper storage of the products by CENTROPEL and if all precautionary measures that should have been taken were duly taken.
3.10 Any potential information and advice provided, on issues related to health, prevention, nutrition, beauty and aesthetics, are offered for information only and in no way replace medical advice, opinions, diagnoses and prescriptions from professional doctors, medical institutions and diagnostic centres, which must be received and followed by the user of the services of the Website, in order to deal with any health problems and daily issues that concern him/her. The advice and information provided by the Website in response to user questions are subject to the accuracy, completeness and truthfulness of the information provided by the user, for the issue that concerns him/her, the characteristics of which (information) the Website is not in a position, nor is it required to confirm. In case of untrue, inaccurate and/or incomplete information by the user, CENTROPEL is absolved from liability for the validity of the advice provided and from liability for damage to the user from information and/or advice unsuitable for his/her needs.
