1. Introduction

The general terms and conditions of sale detailed below only govern the contractual relationship between the User (hereafter referred to as You) and the trader Sonic Force Oy (hereafter referred to as LoudBy or we).
Both parties accept these conditions unreservedly. These general conditions of sale are the only conditions that are applicable and replace all other conditions, except in the case of express, written prior dispensation. LoudBy maintain that, by confirming your order, you unreservedly accept our general conditions of sale. These “Terms of use” are important to you and LoudBy as they have been designed to protect your rights as a valued customer and to protect our rights as a business and to create an understanding between us.

2. Product information

Please note that some products' instruction manuals come only in English. See LoudBy sound case video.

3. Prices

The prices indicated on the web-shop are in Euro and include all taxes and mail delivery in European Union countries. The chosen possible additional delivery costs are indicated for you during the product selection and are invoiced at the end of the order in addition to the price of the products. 

LoudBy reserve the right to modify our prices at any moment but will apply the current rates as indicated to you on the site at the time the order was placed.

LoudBy would like to inform you that if an obviously incorrect price appears on our website (a price that is clearly too low, for example), and for whatever reason (IT bug, human error, technical error etc.), your order will be cancelled, even if it has been initially validated.

4. Availability

Please note that LoudBy will honour your order while stock is available. 

If a product becomes unavailable after your order has been confirmed, we will refund the price you paid for the product within 30 days following the date of payment.

If there are certain products that are temporarily unavailable, we will send the available products and will refund the price for the rest of the order. If available, we will offer you a replacement for an unavailable product, a product of equal price and quality. If you choose to refuse this offer, we will reimburse the unavailable product. If you wish to return it to us in the conditions outlined in article 7 (right of withdrawal – satisfied or your money back), the return postage will be covered by you.

5. Delivery

The products bought on the “LoudBy shop” will be delivered to European Union countries without any additional taxes. Please note that when delivering outside EU additional taxes and delivery costs are not included in product price.

LoudBy offers several methods of delivery. For further details, please refer to our “Delivery Terms”.

If your product is shown to be "in stock" on our website when you place your order, the number of days between the order date and the date that the carrier first attempts to deliver to the given address can be calculated as follows:
1. Dispatch time (24-48 hours) = payment validation + order preparation + parcel collection by carrier
2. Delivery time of your parcel(s) according to the carrier you have chosen.
Dispatch and delivery times are given in working days. Usual total delivery time in EU by mail is 3-5 working days.

Lost parcels:
LoudBy does everything in its power to respect the delivery times indicated on the website. In the event where you do not receive your package in the indicated time frame, an investigation will be conducted with the carrier and may take several days upon receipt of your claim. During this period, no reimbursement or re-delivery will take place. 

6. Secure payment

LoudBy has chosen to guarantee payment security with PayPal by encrypting the connection when transmitting information on the network.
When you see the payment sign, you will know that your payment is secure. The name PayPal may appear on your bank account statement. Please note that if our security department suspects fraud, we have the right to cancel the transaction for security reasons.

LoudBy offers 2 methods of payment depending on the product purchased: Credit card (Visa, American Express, Discover or MasterCard) and PayPal.

When you pay by credit card, your account will be debited 4 days after the day of your order, on the condition that we have received pre-authorization for your payment. If sufficient funds are not available, your order will not be taken into account. For payments made on-line by credit card, the "Secure Socket Layer" (SSL) is used, which allows your banking information to be encrypted when on the network. 

Complementary information may be requested, or demanded, in order to validate your purchase. By consequence, and in trying to avoid any delay, when you place your order please enter valid email address. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, these measures are taken to protect our clients from possible fraud associated with credit cards.
