2.3 Upon completing a transaction using our E-Commerce Services, you will be presented with a confirmation screen verifying the transaction details you wish to process. It is your responsibility to verify that all transaction information and other details are correct. You should print the transaction confirmation for future reference and your files.

This means you agree to provide any relevant information in the format and to the standards described for each transaction. It also means you agree and understand that the information will be retained in electronic form.
4.1 Our E-Commerce Services are provided through a secure website using SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. However, you acknowledge and agree that Internet transmissions are never entirely secure or private, and that any message or information you send to or through the Website (including credit card information) may be read or intercepted by others, even where a Website is stated as being secure.

5.1 We may charge a Fee as advertised on the Website for use of our E-Commerce Services.

5.3 RATA JEWELLERY may contact you directly to confirm your credit card details. All Fees are in New Zealand dollars and are inclusive of GST if any (being tax levied in accordance with the Goods and Services Tax Act 1985 and includes tax levied in substitution for such tax). You will pay all other applicable taxes, import duties, levies or tariffs which may be payable (if any).
6.1 RATA JEWELLERY accepts no liability or responsibility for the refusal or reversal of payments which are matters between you and your credit card provider.
6.2 RATA JEWELLERY cannot warrant that the E-Commerce Process, and/or your use of our E-Commerce Services will be faultless, immediate, continuous, and virus free, nor that information provided through the E-Commerce Process will be complete, accurate or up to date. RATA JEWELLERY will endeavour, however, to ensure the E-Commerce Services are available at all times, subject to maintenance.
6.3 Subject to any rights which you may have under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993, except as expressly prohibited by law, in no event will RATA JEWELLERY be liable to you for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental or punitive damages, including lost profits, even where RATA JEWELLERY has been advised of the possibility of such damages occurring. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, RATA JEWELLERY is found to be liable to you for any damage or loss which arises as a result of your use of the Website or the E-Commerce Services, RATA JEWELLERY liability shall not exceed the dollar amount of the transaction which formed the basis of the damage or $100.00, whichever is the lesser. Otherwise, the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
7.1 RATA JEWELLERY shall be entitled at any time without prior notice or any liability to you, to alter, cancel or suspend any or all E-Commerce Services temporarily or permanently and/or to substitute alternative services, which may or may not be interactive or transactional in nature.
