2. PRODUCT PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
Any offer to purchase the Products using this Website does not constitute any guarantee that what is being purchased by the User will necessarily be available.
The Products displayed on this Website are subject to availability and will be delivered only within the Republic of South Africa, subject to further terms as set out below.
All prices displayed on the Website are valid and effective only in the Republic of South Africa.
Despite our best efforts, a Product appearing on the Website may be mispriced. We reserve the right to correct the selling price or to change the selling price of any and all of the Products from time to time without any prior notification. Orders placed on the Website constitute an offer to purchase Products subject to this Agreement. The User will receive an auto-response generated message confirming the purchase of the Product. A purchase agreement will only come into effect between the User and the Provider once an autoresponse generated message has been sent to the User confirming the acceptance of the offer to purchase.
The private information required of the User for executing the orders placed through the Website’s ecommerce facility, namely the User’s personal information, credit card details, delivery address and telephone numbers will be kept in the strictest confidence by the Provider and not sold or made known to third parties. Only the essential information, that is the delivery address and contact phone number will be made known to third parties delivering the merchandise.
The Provider undertakes that it has taken all reasonable precautions to secure the credit card processing that is carried out to receive payment for goods sold. The Provider cannot be held responsible for security breaches occurring on the User’s electronic device (Personal Computer or other electronic device used to browse the Website), which may result due to the lack of adequate virus protection software or spyware that the User may unintentionally have installed on his/her device.
Users who do not wish to place an order or make offers in respect of any Products on the Website may visit the Website without providing their personal information. The Provider will however keep a record of the IP address of the User Computer (but not the e-mail address) for purposes of determining the use of the Website, i.e. the number of visits and average time spent on the Website.
4. DISPLAY COLOURS
We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of the Products that appear on the Website. As the actual colours you see will depend on the User’s computer’s monitor we cannot guarantee, however, that the User’s monitor’s display of any colour will be accurate as against the display picture.
5. DELIVERY POLICY
We will not be held liable for any loss, claims, theft or damage of whatsoever nature, to any person, arising from the delivery process and/or from the delivery of a product and/or the failure to deliver the Product(s).
Please note that delivery estimates are not guaranteed delivery times and should not be relied upon as such. The delivery period for different Product(s) may vary depending on the type of Product and the availability of the Product. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail if any products you order turn out to be unavailable.
Subject to stock availability with suppliers and receipt of payment, requests will be processed within 10 days and handed over to a courier company for delivery. Delivery payment options are provided upon checkout. For delivery cost options, [click here]. For very remote areas not serviced by standard courier service the Provider will deliver via Post Office or to the nearest town to the User that is accessible by our courier’s partners within their normal routes. In these circumstances, the Provider will contact the User to arrange an alternative address.
The Provider reserves the right to cancel an order for which payment has already been received from the User. This may occur if stock is insufficient or the quality of goods ordered does not meet the Provider’s standards. Should the Provider exercise this right, the User will receive a full refund with no deductions.
We will not be held responsible or liable for any loss, damage or theft of the Product(s) in the event that you have provided Babarazzi with your home physical address and you have given authorisation to a domestic worker and/or security officer to accept the product.
Any grievances regarding the standard and quality of the Product(s) purchased by the User using the Website should be directed to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. “COOLING-OFF PERIOD” IN TERMS OF SECTION 44 OF THE ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSACTIONS ACT 25 OF 2002 AND OTHER REFUND AND RETURN POLICIES
The User is entitled to cancel without any reason and without any penalty any transaction concluded on the Website within 7 (seven) days after the date of receipt of the Product(s).
If payment for the Product(s) has been effected prior to the User exercising his or her right to cancel a transaction, the User is entitled to a full refund of such payment, which refund will be made within 30 (thirty) days of the date of cancellation of the transaction, less our charges for the direct cost of returning the Product(s).
The “cooling-off” period does not apply to:
magazines and books;
audio or video recordings or computer software (including Blue Ray discs, DVD’s, games, educational programmes and music CD’s) which have been unsealed by the User;
foodstuffs, beverages or other goods intended for everyday consumption (such as diapers) supplied to the home, residence or workplace of the User;
Product(s) which are made to the User’s specifications;
Product(s) which are clearly personalised;
Product(s) which by reason of their nature cannot be returned; and/or
Product(s) which are likely to deteriorate rapidly.
The User may also cancel an order that has not yet been dispatched from the Company’s premises (excluding electronic gift cards or any other digital product), for a full refund.
Should the User cancel an order partially, a delivery fee will be charged for the remaining products to be delivered. In such an instance, we will make a reasonable effort to exchange the product upon receipt of the returned products, but if replacement is not possible, we will refund the purchase price including delivery cost upon receipt of the returned products.
7. GIFT VOUCHERS
A gift card can be purchased with a minimum amount of R250 and a maximum of R1000. The amount registered on the gift card will not accrue any interest. The total rand amount of the purchases will be deducted from the value of the gift card. All transactions in excess of the gift card balance will be declined. The gift card is valid until the last day of the month which is printed on the front of the card (marked expiry date). The gift card may not be re-activated after the expiry date.
The gift card may not be refunded or exchanged for cash or credit. Lost or stolen gift cards must be reported to the Company immediately, together with original receipts of purchase and the gift card number. The gift card will be stopped as soon as reasonably possible after the Company has been advised, but the purchaser thereof will still be responsible for all payments made with the gift card prior to notification of the loss and/or theft.
Exchange and return of Products purchased in whole or in part with the gift card will be governed by the procedures and policies of the Company.
8. REGISTRY SALE
Registry accounts, once available, may be opened 6 (six) weeks prior to due date and closed up to 1 (one) week after birth. The Product(s) will only be consolidated and shipped upon check-out at which point normal sales policies shall apply.

The registry will be available to view and amend once opened and two weeks after the birth date.
No items on the registry may be set aside without purchase.

The Companies refund and returns policy as set out in 9 below shall apply in relation to all Products purchased in terms of the registry service.
9. REFUNDS AND RETURNS
The replacement of returned Products cannot be guaranteed as this is subject to the availability of stock. The User can only return a Product or request a refund if the Product is damaged prior to delivery, if the Product is faulty on delivery, or if the incorrect product was delivered. In such cases, no returns or refunds will be accepted after  days after delivery of the Product. The Product must be returned in its original packaging with all warranty cards, manuals and accessories.
Should a User request a return/refund on receipt of the Product for any reason other than the Product not being damaged, faulty or incorrect the Provider has the right to charge the User for the delivery, administration and handling fees for the return of the Product. The balance will then be refunded to the User within 30 days.
