Our online store allows you to search our product range and to purchase Casio branded products directly from Casio's approved third party retailers, distributors and sellers (for ease, we refer to each of these parties in these terms as the "Seller"). We advertise these products for sale on behalf of the Seller and when you make a purchase you are contracting directly with the relevant Seller of the product in your country who will fulfil the order. Full details of the Seller, including their name and contact details will be confirmed to you during the purchase process. When we refer to 'we', 'us' and 'our' in these Terms, we mean Casio and/or the Seller as the context requires.

Your credit/debit card or other payment method will be billed by the Seller.

  5. 3.5  If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing and we will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

  6. 3.6  Your order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when your order is accepted. You should use your order number whenever you contact us about your order.

We will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see Clause 7.1 - Your rights to end the contract).

5. Our rights to make changes

This information must be provided at the time of placing an order unless you are advised otherwise.
