For all purposes, the address of the shop’s headquarters in Barcelona, Spain, shall be considered the sales address. The purchase of our products can be made from anywhere in Spain except Ceuta, Melilla and the Canary Islands. To place an order from another location, please contact us first.
The final prices of all products (and, where applicable, the final prices per unit of measurement), together with their characteristics, offers, discounts, etc., are reflected in each of the items offered. The price of the gift is the cost of the product or set of products themselves plus the extra donation amount added to each product. Shipping costs, if any, will be borne by the Customer and will be added before finalising the purchase.
In any case, the final cost, in each case and in accordance with the provisions of the previous paragraph, will be communicated to the customer in the electronic purchase process before the customer formalises his acceptance.
The applicable VAT (Value Added Tax) rate will be the one legally in force at any given time depending on the specific item in question, VAT will only be applied to the cost of the product or sets of products, but VAT will not be applied to the part that corresponds as a donation.
In the event that an order must go through customs (Ceuta, Melilla, Canary Islands and orders from outside the EC), customs charges or taxes to be paid are not included. It will be the customer’s responsibility to bear these costs and the corresponding customs formalities to obtain the order. The carrier will usually take care of the customs clearance of the order, charging the corresponding costs and taxes at the time of delivery of the order.
The invoice for the cost of the product will be sent by email upon receipt of payment. However, the customer may request at any time that a copy of the corresponding invoice be sent to him/her by telematic means or on paper, as he/she chooses. With regard to the amount added to each product considered as a donation, the customer will receive by email during the first quarter of the following year the certificate for the tax deduction in the income tax for individuals or in the corporate tax for those considered as companies. The certificate will be issued with the sum of the total amount of the donations made through the purchase of the Solidarity Gifts in the Solidarity Shop of the Foundation Luz Solidaria. If necessary, you can also request a copy of the certificate to be sent by post.
The prices of the products may, except for special promotions of a fixed duration, vary at any time. In this case, the price to be applied will be that in force on the date the order is placed.

06. DELIVERY TIMES AND SHIPPING COSTS
The delivery time is the result of adding the time it takes us to prepare your order and the time it takes for the order to arrive at its destination. Both the preparation of orders and their transit is done on working days, so the number of calendar days may vary for two similar orders depending on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays that may be involved.
All the products offered on the website are available (except for stock-outs or exceptional cases), which allows us to process orders for delivery within 3 to 5 working days from the day after the order is placed, by means of the following transport agency: CORREOS.
Although we try to prepare our orders the same day they are received, depending on the time the orders are placed, it may take some time for them to be ready for dispatch on the same day, so your order will be dispatched the following day.
When we do not have a product in stock and we are not able to obtain it quickly, we will notify you by email of the estimated time it will take to get it, and we will call you to confirm receipt of the email. From that moment, if the delivery time is not satisfactory, you will have 2 working days to cancel the order and we will refund your money. After this time we will assume that you are still interested in the order. If there are further delays we will send you further notifications and you will have 2 working days after each of them to cancel the order and get your money back.
Orders received on Fridays or public holidays will be prepared on the following working day. If for any reason there is a delay in delivery we will inform you of the estimated delivery time.
CORREOS, will make 2 delivery attempts and may send communications via sms and/or email to the recipients of the shipments. If the contact or delivery attempts have not been effective, the courier will leave the package in custody for 15 days (in the office closest to your home) awaiting collection, in the event that collection is not made, the package will be returned by the courier, so it is important to make sure to provide an address where it can be easily located.
If the order is finally returned by the courier agency due to the impossibility of contacting the customer, the customer will be responsible for the cost of the new shipment.
It is not possible to specify the exact time of delivery, just as the courier company will not contact you before the first delivery attempt.
If there is any error in your order received, please contact us and we will inform you of the best way to solve the error at no cost whatsoever to you.

08. RETURNS OF BROKEN, DEFECTIVE OR WRONG PRODUCTS
If, on delivery of an order, you detect that the packaging has been tampered with or damaged, you must note the reason for this on the carrier’s delivery note and the customer’s signature. In order to speed up the procedures related to transport damage, we ask our customers to check the condition of the order and report any possible transport damage within 48 working hours from the time of receipt.
In the event of receiving a product with a manufacturing defect, tare or that is incorrect, you have 7 days from the receipt of the order to return it, as long as you inform us within 48 hours from the receipt of the order via our email firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating in the subject the reference of the original order number, as well as indicating the reason for the return, exchange or replacement.
In cases where the cause of the return, exchange or replacement is attributable to the shop, we will pay the shipping costs. An incomplete, defective or non-functioning item is the responsibility of the shop. A cancellation or exchange due to ordering the wrong item is the responsibility of the customer.
If the shop is responsible for the shipping costs, we will contact you to arrange for a carrier to pick them up from the original shipping address. If you are responsible for the shipping costs, you can use whatever means you choose to send us the product(s). Once we have been able to verify what you have sent us, we will send you the replacement product(s) or refund your money. Please note that you must comply with the conditions that apply to each type of return, exchange or replacement.
It is essential that you send us a high-resolution photo of the broken, defective or faulty item and keep the item in order to process the return, as well as a photo of the original packaging, which you should also keep. We will indicate you the procedure to follow in order to proceed with the return. Likewise, and as in the previous section regarding withdrawal, the goods received must be in their original packaging, in perfect condition, and include a copy of the invoice clearly marking the products you are sending.
If there is a gift per purchase in the order, it must be returned in order for the return to be accepted.
Once the goods have been received and after checking the condition of the same, the total amount will be paid according to the corresponding type of return according to the means of payment used in the order.
In case of cancellation or return of the wrong product, the return postage will be paid by the customer.
09. WARRANTIES AND AFTER-SALES SERVICES
In general, all the products in our catalogue enjoy the guarantee given by their manufacturers or distributors in Spain and for which the shop is responsible, which will be for two years unless otherwise indicated. This guarantee will start to run from the day on which the carrier delivers the product to the customer. The customer must keep the delivery note as proof of this date.
As proof of entitlement to the guarantee, the original purchase invoice will suffice and will be sent to the customer either together with the order, or by ordinary mail to the billing address, or by e-mail to the address used to place the order.
Defects or damage due to incorrect handling, installation or use of the products or wear and tear caused by normal use of the products are not covered by this warranty. The diminished functionality of the articles, due to the limitations of their design, are also excluded from the coverage of this guarantee. In the case of computer products, the warranty does not cover the removal of malware, the restoration of programs for this reason or the reinstallation of the disk caused by the deletion of the same.
In those incidents that justify the use of the guarantee, we will opt for the repair, replacement of the article, discount or refund, in the legally established terms.
Warranty and after-sales service will preferably be provided through the manufacturer or distributor in Spain. The customer may choose to go directly to the after-sales service of the manufacturer or distributor, or to send the product to the headquarters of the shop or to the warehouse from which it was sent. In this case, the shipping and return postage will be paid by the shop. Before proceeding with the shipment, the customer must consult with the shop to receive instructions on how to proceed.
