6. Pricing of items for sale on the Site
Although the prices displayed reflect the latest information we have received from the suppliers of these products, all prices are subject to change by the publishers. You will be invoiced for the price applying at the date of sale, which may differ from that quoted online or in your confirmation email. All such items are returnable and refundable. This does not affect your statutory rights. You can change the currency in which prices are shown on the shop web. Once you have chosen a currency, this choice will remain the default setting for all prices for the rest of your session on our site. Please note: all converted prices are approximate, and are provided for your convenience of reference only. We update our approximated conversion rates regularly to help keep this approximation as exact as possible. However, the price you will actually be charged depends on the rate at the point of billing (when we despatch your order to you), rather than the estimated converted total at point of order. Boosey.com is not responsible for any such discrepancy between these rates.
7. Other businesses
From time to time parties other than B&H operate stores or sell or advertise products and services on the Site. B&H is not responsible for the goods and services offered by any third party or for the content of their websites. You should examine the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third party website and you are responsible for deciding to use or trade with any third party website.
