Purchasing from Cyntech
In purchasing from this website, you are agreeing to the Terms & Conditions set out on this website. Please read them carefully before entering into a transaction on this website. You, the customer, are responsible for any breach of these terms by you and will also be held accountable for any loss or damage caused as a consequence. Under such circumstances you will be liable to reimburse Cyntech for any damage or loss.
Purchase Methods: Transactions should be carried out online. In carrying out any such transaction, you are agreeing to purchase the product(s) in your order for the stated price in accordance with these Terms & Conditions.
We reserve the right to discontinue or alter the supply of any product at any time, and to cancel any sale under reasonable conditions, at our sole discretion. In the event of us having to cancel an order, the customer will be refunded the total payment for the product(s) and P&P. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Any group of products paid for by a single payment method on one occasion will be deemed an Order. Each individual order will be dealt with separately.
Pricing and Payment
Prices: We cannot accept any responsibility for financial loss arising from exchange rate fluctuation between currencies. Customers domiciled outside the EU should make their own provision for the payment of any import or duty related taxes arising from their order; in such cases, it is advisable to contact your local customs office for accurate and reliable information.
While we maintain the website to ensure provision of information to a high level of accuracy, sometimes pricing errors may occur, particularly where prices alter at short notice due to circumstances beyond our control. In the event of a pricing error occurring with an item in your order, we will attempt to notify you as soon as possible, either by email or by telephone. You will be offered the opportunity to cancel your order or to reconfirm the purchase at the revised price. Where cancellation occurs, the payment for the order will be entirely refunded; if we are unable to reach you by either form of communication, we will consider the order to have been cancelled and will refund you accordingly.
Payment Methods: We accept payment by credit or debit card (as shown on the shopping cart: Visa, Visa Purchasing, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Delta, Solo/Maestro), or Paypal. We cannot process or dispatch your order until the full payment sum has cleared.
Credit and Debit Cards: We currently accept Visa, Visa Purchasing, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Delta, Solo/Maestro as valid forms of payment online. In the majority of circumstances, we aim to debit money from your account within 1 working day of processing your order. Any invoices or other financial correspondence relating to your order will be sent to your billing address if the recipient at the delivery address is not the named cardholder.
Transaction Security: All payments through our website are made via Paypal or SagePay. In some cases, your credit card company may decide to perform an independent check to verify your identity in order to help combat fraud.
Supply & Delivery
Availability of Goods: Our website is regularly maintained and updated to the best of our ability to ensure the provision of accurate information. Nevertheless, we cannot always guarantee continued availability of all our items and occasionally a product may become unobtainable owing to circumstances beyond our control. In such situations, we will notify you as soon as possible and you will be given the opportunity to review your order and, if you choose to cancel the sale, to receive a refund for the item in question.
All special offers are subject to availability and are offered on a while-stocks-last basis. In the event of the offer stocks having been sold already, we will notify you as soon as possible and refund you the value of the purchase for that item.
On discounted products offers which offer free products or products at a reduced rate will not be available with the discounted product unless otherwise stated at the time of ordering.
Delivery Times & Processing Period
We will endeavour to process and dispatch your order as soon as possible and certainly within 28 days. Orders designated ‘Pre-Orders’ are subject to delays and may be dispatched up to 60 days from the receipt of payment. We cannot process or dispatch your goods until we have received notification of payment having cleared. Generally you should allow 2-3 working days from dispatch for delivery within the UK. Delivery to Europe and the rest of the World will usually take place within 5-7 days. While we aim to provide a good forecast of delivery date, it should be remembered that these are estimates and we cannot be held liable for any loss arising from a late delivery. Items in the same order will be dispatched together once all the products in question are in stock: individual items within an order cannot be dispatched separately.
We cannot guarantee delivery in the periods specified. However, if the order remains undelivered for a period of 15 working days following the date of dispatch, we will either process a refund of the order or alternatively dispatch the order again.
Health & Safety
All products should be used in accordance with manufacturing guidelines and you are advised to read carefully all literature that accompanies your purchase(s) and use each product only for the purpose intended by the manufacturer. Cyntech accepts no responsibility for any death or injury to any person(s), or damage to property, arising from use or misuse of products purchased from the site. In the event of doubt as to correct usage, you are advised to contact the manufacturer directly with any queries before using the product(s). This does not affect your statutory rights.
