BIOSTEP may modify at any moment the terms and offers published on its website (prices, products, promotions and other business terms or terms of service), but in any case, the modifications shall not affect past purchases made by our users.
The names and brands of the products and manufacturers are used solely for identification purposes.
Special offers, promotions or discounts shall be valid until the indicated date or until the specified supplies last, as shall the prices displayed at the moment a user consults the webpage.
Users can complete a purchase of our products by following the purchase procedure described in this section. By purchasing our products, users accept that communication with BIOSTEP shall happen mainly through electronic means.
To proceed with an ordinary purchase on our website, you must simply follow the steps indicated on the website itself. So, once you have filled the shopping cart with all the products that you wish to purchase, you can modify or complete the purchase, filling out the information required for this purpose and proceeding to pay the amount for the products purchased through the corresponding payment methods.
After choosing the payment method, if the user wishes to pay by card (Redsys) or PayPal, the user shall have access to a payment gateway in which he will have to include his credit card or PayPal information. This data will be transferred in a secure manner and through encryption protocols that prevent their capture by third parties. Under no circumstances will the user’s banking data be stored in the servers and databases of www.biostep.es.
Following the above steps, the purchase shall be considered complete and the user shall receive by email a confirmation of his order, which must reflect in detail the products that the user has purchased and the terms and conditions of the purchase. Through this confirmation, the user shall be provided with an order number.
– Price of the products and taxes
The price that is displayed at any moment next to our products includes any added taxes (Spanish VAT) and shipping costs.
If there is a typographical error in the displayed prices and if the user has made a purchasing decision based on said error, we will inform you of this incident immediately and the user will have the right to cancel the purchase at no cost on his part.
– For deliveries to the Canary Islands:
At the moment the Canary Islands are not available as a destination country to our shipping services.
– For deliveries to other European Countries:
In the event that the website performs sales to European countries where different VAT rates may apply, (examples of European countries where different VAT rates may apply and for which it is possible to include a delivery address; Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Sweden, without prejudice to the possibility of this list being expanded at a later date) in these cases the tax to be applied would be that of the country of origin (in our case, the Spanish VAT that is already included in the prices of the products) until the volume of sales of the company, with the country of destination of the purchase, exceeds the thresholds established by each country. From then on, we ensure that our system recalculates the prices and sales made to these countries so that they are subject to the VAT of the destination country (the country to which your purchase will be sent as a customer).
It is important to know that the Canary Islands, although they are part of Spain, have their distinct fiscal regime. This transforms them into a third country and thus the entry or exit of goods from the Canary Islands generates some custom duties.
IMPORTANT: The potential custom duties that may be generated in the event of sales to the Canary Islands and/or other destination countries that are considered third countries, shall not be borne by BIOSTEP.
