INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COMPLAINTS
Afrikonet respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your intellectual property rights are being infringed, please contact us.
RISK OF LOSS
All purchases of physical items from Afrikonet are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
RETURNS, REFUNDS AND TITLE
Afrikonet does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. For more information about our returns and refunds, please see our Returns Center.
Afrikonet attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Afrikonet does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Afrikonet or Vendors is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Afrikonet itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
“List Price” means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or vendor. We regularly check List Prices against prices recently found on Afrikonet and other retailers. Certain products may have a “Previous Price” displayed, which is determined using recent price history of the product on Afrikonet.
With respect to items sold by Afrikonet, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Afrikonet is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.
We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process.
Parties other than Afrikonet.sl operate or sell product lines through the Afrikonet Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. If you purchase any of the products or services offered by these businesses or individuals, you are purchasing directly from those third parties, not from Afrikonet. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the offerings of any of these businesses or individuals (including the content of their Web sites). Afrikonet does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and other conditions of use.
