R1. Your Contract with the Supplier
To purchase Products offered by the Algarve Resident Reader Offers, you must be over
eighteen years of age.
It will be clear on the Reader Offer information printed in-paper and on the website which
Supplier you are contracting with for each Product you buy. There will be no contract of any
kind between you and the Supplier unless and until the Supplier actually dispatches the
Product to you. Your order is an offer to buy from the Supplier. Nothing that the Company does
or the Supplier does will amount to any acceptance of that offer until the Supplier actually
dispatches the Product to you. At any point up until then, the Supplier may decline to supply
the Product to you. At the time that the Product is dispatched, a contract will be made
between you and the Supplier as agreed in these Terms & Conditions, you will be charged for
the Product at the point of ordering or very soon thereafter. Sections 1 to 6 of these Terms &
Conditions will form part of your contract with the Supplier. For more information on the
Suppliers, please see “Suppliers”.

R2. Prices
The prices payable for the Products that you order are clearly set out in the Reader Offer
literature, either in paper or on the Website. If, by mistake, the Supplier has under-priced a
Product, the Supplier will not be liable to supply that Product to you at the stated price,
provided that the Supplier notifies you before the Supplier dispatches the Product concerned.
All prices are expressed inclusive of IVA unless otherwise stated. The price of the Products
includes the delivery charge to the Portuguese mainland only.

R3. Delivery
Delivery will be made to the address specified by you on the completed order form. Please note
that all Suppliers can only deliver products within the Portuguese mainland. As we may source
products from many Suppliers, products in one order may be delivered separately. All Suppliers
aim to deliver within 14 days unless clearly stated otherwise in the product description and
they will do their best to secure delivery within 30 days of the date of your order but shall not
be liable for loss resulting from delay in delivery arising out of any cause beyond their control.
If for any reason the Supplier is unable to supply a particular Product, the Supplier will notify
you as soon as possible.

R4. Cancellation and Returns
Unless the Products are perishable or personalised for you, you have the right to cancel your
order up to seven working days after the day following the delivery of the Product by
contacting the Supplier. In the event that the Product has already been dispatched at the date
of receipt of your cancellation of the order you must return the Product to the relevant
Supplier and the Supplier will credit your credit or credit / debit card with the price of the
Product to you within 30 days beginning with the day on which notice of cancellation was
given. All returned audio or video recordings or computer software must be sealed in their
original wrapping. If you do not return the Product within 30 days of your notice of
cancellation, you will be deemed to have accepted it, at which point a new purchase contract
will be made and you will be charged for your order at the price set out on the Website. This
does not affect your statutory rights. If you are returning a Product because of an error on the
part of the Supplier or because it is faulty, you must contact us in advance (see “Contact Us”)
and the Supplier will refund your costs in returning the Product. Otherwise you will be
responsible for those charges. For your protection, we recommend that you use a recorded
delivery service when returning a Product or otherwise obtain a Post Office proof of posting or
insurance to cover the value of the unwanted Product. As stated above, you will be responsible
for the costs of returning any Product unless they have been delivered to you in error or the
Product is faulty. In addition to your right to cancel above, Suppliers will accept most returned
Product within 28 days of receipt as long as the Product is unworn, unused and in its original
packaging.

R5. Payment
You can pay with MasterCard or Visa credit card, Switch or debit card and any other credit or
debit card which the Supplier indicates as being available for use. Your credit / debit card
details will be accessible by the authorised payment system only and not by the Company, its
staff or agents so as to minimise the possibility of unauthorised access or disclosure. Authority
for payment must be given at the time of order.

above, we disclaim all liability in respect of the Products. To the full extent allowed by the
applicable law, you agree that neither we nor any Supplier will be liable to you for any
consequential or incidental damages (including but not limited to loss of revenue, loss of
profits, loss of anticipated savings, wasted expenditure, loss of privacy and loss of data) or any
other indirect, special or punitive damages whatsoever that arise out of or are related to the
Reader Offers. If we are found to be liable to you, our liability (whether arising in negligence or
otherwise) will not under any circumstances exceed the greater of (a) 500 Euros, or (b) an
amount equal to the sums paid or payable by you in respect of the order to which such liability
relates. Nothing in these Terms & Conditions shall exclude our liability or the Supplier’s liability
for personal injury or death caused by negligence.
