1.1             The Iwori website located at www.iworibeauty.com (the “Website”) is owned and operated by Canway Proprietary Limited Registration Number: 1995/01650/07 (“Canway”, “we”, “us” or “our”).

1.2             These terms and conditions (the “Terms”) are binding on any person who accesses or uses the Website and/or purchases products at the Iwori online store (the “User”). By entering the Website and/or ordering products through the Website, the User agrees to be bound by and shall be deemed to have accepted these Terms, which the User acknowledges to have read and understood.  If the User does not agree to any of the Terms, the User should not enter, view or conduct any transaction on the Website.

1.3             The Website enables a User to shop online for a range of beauty products from the Iwori and have them delivered door-to-door within the Republic of South Africa.

2.         PLACING AN ORDER

2.1             Canway will not deliver goods to addresses outside South Africa.

2.2             By placing an order, the User represents and warrants that:

2.2.1               the User is at least 18 years of age and legally capable of entering into binding contracts or, if the User is below the age of 18 years, the User warrants that he or she has relevant parental consent to act; and

2.2.2               the User agrees to be bound by these Terms.

The User accepts that Canway will rely on the User’s representation that the User has unfettered legal capacity to contract and that the User is over 18 years of age.

2.3             Before proceeding to finalise an order, the User will be given an opportunity to review and, if required, correct the contents of the User’s order as well as any information or addresses provided.

2.4             The products and prices displayed on the Website are only valid while stocks last and subject to availability. The User acknowledges that stock of all products of the Website is limited. Canway will take all reasonable efforts to monitor stock levels and ensure that when stock is no longer available, that offers thereof are removed from the Website.

2.5             Canway will in no way be held liable to provide a product at an expired price or where the product concerned is no longer in stock or available. If the User orders a product on the Website and that product is no longer available after payment, Canway will notify the User and the User will be entitled to a refund of any amount already paid for such products.

2.6             The images of the products on the Website are for illustrative purposes only. The products described or graphically represented on the Website may differ in colour, shape, form, design and appearance from the final product delivered.

2.7             The User shall use the products purchased from Canway only for the User’s own personal use or in order to give such products as a gift to another person for that other person’s own personal use. The User shall not resell such products. The User shall not market, sell, distribute, seek customers, advertise or in any other way deal in or with the goods purchased from Canway as a manufacturer or on a wholesale or retail basis.

3.         DELIVERY

3.1             Orders will only be shipped once Canway has received payment of the full purchase price for the goods and all charges and costs relating to the products.

3.2             Canway offers free delivery on orders that exceed the minimum purchase price limit published on the Website from time to time. In respect of orders that are less than such limit, the User will pay a delivery fee. The delivery fee is dependent on the User’s delivery address and will be displayed during checkout.

3.3             Every reasonable effort is taken to ensure that the delivery costs displayed on the Website are correct at the time of purchase. However, if a delivery fee is incorrectly displayed, Canway will not be obliged to deliver products at an incorrect delivery fee. Canway shall only be liable to return payment already made by the User in the case they choose to cancel the sale once they have been made aware of the correct delivery fee.

3.4             Canway will not deliver any products to postal addresses (such as Post Office box addresses). The address nominated by the User for delivery is required to be a physical address.

3.5             Unless otherwise agreed or stipulated in the User’s order or on the Website, the User’s order will be delivered by the courier company specified by Canway, to the address provided by the User during the order process.

3.6             In order to receive delivery of an order, the User must ensure that someone will be available at the delivery address between 8:00 and 17:00 on Business Days. (A Business Day is any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or official public holiday in the Republic of South Africa.) For this reason, Canway recommends using a business address for delivery. If no one is available at the nominated delivery address to accept delivery of an order, the courier will retain the products and inform the User of the attempted delivery. The courier service will subsequently arrange a suitable date and time for delivery. The User will be responsible for any additional fees that may be charged by the courier if no one was available to receive delivery of the order at the address specified by the User, or if the courier returns the products to Canway as a result thereof.

3.7             The User acknowledges that Canway shall rely on the accuracy of the delivery address as provided by the User. Canway does not verify the accuracy of any particulars of a delivery address provided by the User. The User shall check the accuracy of the delivery address every time when placing an order. Canway shall not be liable for any costs, loss, damages or claims incurred by the User relating to an inaccurate or incorrect delivery address provided by the User.

3.8             The User will be required to provide a valid form of identification when their order is delivered.

3.9             Canway will make an effort to ensure that delivery takes place within the time period specified on the Website in relation to the User’s order. However, the size and quantity of an order as well as the distance between Canway and the delivery address provided, amongst other circumstances, may require a longer period for delivery.  The User will be notified from time to time of any anticipated delays with delivery and, in such circumstances, the updated delivery time will substitute and take preference over the delivery time stipulated in the confirmatory email or reflected on Canway’s invoice.

3.10          Ownership of products ordered will pass to the User upon Canway receiving full payment for such products. Risk in respect of ordered products will pass to the User once they have been delivered to the User. If products are lost or damaged in transit, Canway will replace lost or damaged products in its’ sole discretion.

4.         CANCELLATION AND RETURNS

4.1             The User may cancel an order at any time, provided that they do so before the order is dispatched for delivery by Canway.  After delivery of the products from the Canway to the User, such products may only be returned in accordance with the provisions of this clause 4.

4.2             The User is responsible for inspecting ordered products upon delivery. If, upon delivery, it appears that a product has been opened and/or is clearly damaged, the User must bring this to the attention of Canway by sending an email to the relevant address specified on the Website and include the order details in such email. Upon inspection and subject to Canway’s sole discretion, Canway may replace the product should the User request same.

4.3             The User is entitled to return an order within 7 days after receiving delivery thereof, provided that the product is in its original condition, unopened and any and all labels remain intact.

4.4             If a product is returned in terms with these Terms, Canway will, following receipt and examination of such product, reimburse the User with the purchase price paid by the User for the product, excluding any applicable delivery costs and/or charges. The User will be responsible for the costs of returning the products to Canway. The risk of loss of or damage to the products will remain with the User until they products have been received by Canway.

4.5             Where the User has paid by credit card, the refund will be processed to the credit card used for the purchase.

4.6             The User should expect to receive their refund within 30 days of giving the package to the return shipper. However, in many cases the User may receive a refund more quickly.  This time period includes the transit time for Canway to receive the return from the shipper, the time it takes Canway to process the return once received and the time it takes the User’s bank to process our refund request.

4.7             No provision stated in these Terms regarding Canway’s cancellation and returns policy will affect or be interpreted to deny the User any of the User’s unalterable statutory rights, to the extent applicable. If and to the extent that the Consumer Protection Act, 2008 (the “CPA”) applies, Users shall be entitled to return products that have material defects in accordance with the CPA’s provisions.

5.7.2               If the incorrect price is higher than the correct price, a representative from Canway will advise the User of the lower price but will proceed to process and confirm such order. The User will receive a refund for the balance of the amount already paid for the product.

If they do not receive such authorisation, the order for the products will be cancelled. The User warrants that they are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of paying the products and that the credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all the costs incurred as a result of the transaction on the Website.

6.3             When making payment, the User undertakes to pay the final purchase price (including VAT and any and all courier costs and other charges reflected).
