1. Placing an Order

After receiving your order, Columbia Online Shop will check that the relevant product(s) is in stock. You are aware of the fact that the availability of products displayed at the time you consult the product page may change if other users place orders for that product in the meantime. In the event that the products ordered are not available, you will be promptly informed, and your credit card will not be charged; if the amount has already been charged by other means of payment, Columbia Online Shop will refund it immediately. The contract between you and Columbia Online Shop will only be concluded when Columbia Online Shop emails you to confirm that the product(s) have been dispatched.
