Terms of Sale
These are the terms of supply for products ordered on shop.invisalign.co.uk. The Site is operated by or on behalf of Align Technology Switzerland GmbH (we, us and our). We are a company registered in Rotkreuz, Switzerland with company registration number CHE-146.357.660, and our office address is set out under contacting us.
We reserve the right to change these terms from time to time by changing them on the Site, although no such change will affect any order you have already placed with us. These terms were last updated on 04/05/2022.
Ordering and availability
To order any Product, you must be at least 18 years of age (or any older age legally required under local law to bind yourself legally to these terms). By doing so, you confirm to us that you meet this requirement.
Products may be ordered by clicking on the items you wish to purchase and then following the prompts that will appear on-screen. You may check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order to us by clicking the "Pay Now" button on the checkout page.
After placing an order, you will receive an acknowledgment from us that we have received your order and giving you an order reference number. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy the Product(s) ordered. All orders are subject to acceptance by us. We are not obliged to accept your order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept any order. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the "Pay Now" button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s). Where we accept your order, we will confirm such acceptance by sending you a confirmation email (Order Confirmation). The contract between you and us in relation to the Product(s) ordered (Contract) will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with goods that are in conformity with the Contract.
The Contract will relate only to the Product(s) which have been confirmed in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product(s) which may have been part of your order until such Product(s) have been confirmed in a separate Order Confirmation.
From time to time, certain new Products may, where indicated on the relevant Product page, be pre-ordered (i.e. you may place an order before the relevant Product has been generally released and become available on the Site). Where this is the case, the availability date will be shown on the relevant Product page.
Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within 30 days after the date of the Order Confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances and except in the case of pre-orders.
If you place a pre-order before the availability date shown on the relevant Product page (and we accept it), the pre-ordered Product(s) will be despatched on the availability date and delivered by the delivery date set out in the Order Confirmation but in any case not later than 10 days after the availability date.
Your order will be delivered to the delivery address within the United Kingdom you specify when placing your order. Deliveries will be made to your door.
If your delivery address is geographically remote, for example certain outlying islands or other isolated locations, it is possible that we may not be able to deliver there. If that is the case, we will notify you before we accept your order. Orders cannot be delivered to PO Box or similar addresses.
Risk and ownership
The Product(s) ordered will be at your risk from the time of delivery or collection (as the case may be). Ownership of the Product(s) ordered will also pass to you on delivery or collection (as the case may be), provided full payment of all sums due in respect of the Product(s), including any delivery charges, has been received.
Price and payment
The price of Products is as quoted on the Site from time to time. Prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added (at the cost shown) to the total amount due once you have selected your chosen different delivery method. Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.
The Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on the Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge you the lower amount. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on the Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before despatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
Payment for all orders must be made by credit or debit card on the checkout page, or via other payment options including PayPal and Google Pay. We accept payment by most major credit and debit cards.
You should be aware that online payment transactions are subject to validation checks by your card issuer and we are not responsible if your card issuer declines to authorise payment for any reason. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.
From time to time we may run promotions where we issue discount codes. These can be used in part-payment of the price of Product(s) ordered online, subject to the terms under which they were issued (as indicated in our relevant promotion from which you got the code). Discount codes can only be used once, and only during the period of validity stated and only in respect of the relevant Product(s) stated. Discount codes cannot be redeemed for cash.
Our refunds policy
Up until 30 days after the date of purchase, you may return any Product for a full refund (subject to any deduction we are entitled to make due to your use of or damage to the Product(s)), including the cost of standard delivery. However, we will not refund your cost of returning the Product(s) to us. Refunds are made using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase, unless agreed otherwise.
To request a refund, you will need to provide your order number and (if we request it) proof of purchase. Please contact us with any questions or to request a return, exchange or refund. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
If any Product you order is damaged or faulty when delivered to you or has developed a fault, you may have one or more legal remedies available to you, depending on when you make us aware of the problem, in accordance with your legal rights. If you believe a Product was delivered damaged or faulty or has developed a fault, you should inform us as soon as possible, preferably in writing, giving your name, address and order reference. Nothing in this section affects your legal rights.
Whilst we have taken reasonable steps to depict Products as accurately as possible through the photographs and other images featured on the Site, the detailing (such as colour, pattern and texture, etc.) you see on-screen will depend on your monitor and, as such, may not exactly reflect the actual detailing of a Product when you receive it.
Any information on the Site regarding sizing of Products is included as a guide only. If you are in any doubt as to the size of any Product you require, we recommend that you contact us prior to placing an order (see Contacting us).
Nothing in these terms shall limit or exclude our liability to you:
- for death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
- for fraudulent misrepresentation;
- for breach of any term implied by the Consumer Rights Act 2015 and which, by law, may not be limited or excluded;
- under Part I of the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
- for any other liability that, by law, may not be limited or excluded.
Subject to this, in no event shall we be liable to you for any business losses and any liability we do have for losses you suffer arising from any Contract shall not exceed the purchase price of the relevant Product(s) and is strictly limited to losses that were reasonably foreseeable. Losses are foreseeable where they could be contemplated by you and us at the time your order is accepted by us.
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under any Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control.
You may not transfer or assign any or all of your rights or obligations under any Contract.
All notices given by you to us must be given in writing to the address set out at the end of these terms. We may give notice to you at either the email or postal address you provide to us when placing an order.
If we fail to enforce any of our rights, that does not result in a waiver of that right.
If any provision of these terms is found to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain unaffected.
These terms may not be varied except with our express written consent. We may make changes to these terms at any time, though the version of these terms that applied when a Contract was formed, even if the Product has not yet been delivered to you, will apply to that Contract.
These terms and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the subject matter of any Contract.
These terms shall be governed by English law, except that if you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, there may be certain mandatory applicable laws of your country which apply for your benefit and protection in addition to or instead of certain provisions of English law.
You agree that any dispute between you and us regarding these terms or any Contract will only be dealt with by the English courts, except that if you live in Scotland or Northern Ireland, you can choose to bring legal proceedings either in your country or in England, but if we bring legal proceedings, we may only do so in your country.
If you have any other questions or complaints regarding these terms or the Site, please contact us or write to us at Suurstoffi 22, 6343 Rotkreuz, Switzerland.
