RIGHTS & OBLIGATIONS

CameraTools endeavours to provide the most precise and accurate information possible on our website. Nevertheless, there may be errors which make delivering to the Customer, according to the information provided, impossible. The Customer accepts this condition and waives his right to sue CameraTools, which shall take all necessary steps to find the best possible solution.

We reserve the right to cancel an order if we run out of a product or when, more generally, we find ourselves incapable of honouring it.

CameraTools sends a final and binding order confirmation. Nevertheless, on the website, we reserve the right to typographical errors. Should the description or the price of a product on the website be erroneous, due to typing or input errors made by one of our employees or representatives, we reserve the right to correct, refuse or cancel, partly or entirely, that order or orders.

The same applies to cases where the order has already been validated by a payment. If your account or card was already debited, CameraTools shall credit said amount to your account.

In case the Customer has purchased a product that comes with a user manual, such as the Caman handle, he/she is informed to read it before using the product.
After the product is delivered and used by the Customer, he/she shall be solely responsible for storing and maintaining it.

We strive to guarantee the Customer that the appearance and colours of the product(s) are faithfully reproduced. Some differences may be noticeable in the final product, in particular due to improvements made to the product or to the compressions of images for use on the Internet.

Therefore, all pictures, illustrations and 3D modelling on the website or in other media are not contractual. No returns will be accepted on grounds that there is a difference between the product and one of its visual representations.
