The product is placed in the virtual shopping basket by entering the requested quantity and clicking on the shopping basket icon.

Registered customers can enter their user names and passwords here to automatically use their saved information for the order. Alternatively, the customer can register as a new customer and set up a customer account or continue the purchase without setting up a customer account. In such a case, the customer must enter their address and invoice information on the following page.

- The order is entered into by clicking on the "Buy" button. This means a binding offer has been made.
3.Entering into a contract
The images of the range in the online shop are intended as an illustration and do not constitute binding offers for sale. By completing the order process by clicking on the "Buy" button the customer makes a binding offer to enter into a purchase contract. The customer thereupon receives an automated confirmation of receipt of order by e-mail (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer. The contract with Entoma Petfood is only concluded when Entoma Petfood sends the ordered product to the customer and the shipping to the customer is confirmed by e-mail (shipping confirmation).
4. Quantity limitation
The offered goods are sold in customary domestic quantities only and only to persons of an age at which they are capable of entering into legal transactions.
5. Prices and shipping charges
All prices contain the statutory VAT and other price elements, and are to be understood plus shipping costs that may apply. We do not sell to businesses so we do not issue VAT receipts, nor do we refund the VAT.
6. Shipping charges
Entoma Petfood delivers with no minimum order value. In France, and the European Union the standard delivery fee is €5.00 In the European Economic Area, deliveries are free of charge from an order value of €50.00 with Chronopost International in Europe and DAO in Denmark.

In the event that some of the ordered products are not in stock, Entoma Petfood shall be entitled to provide partial deliveries at its cost provided this is acceptable for the customer.
In the event that Entoma Petfood is unable to deliver the ordered product because Entoma Petfood itself is not supplied by its own suppliers, without culpability on the part of Entoma Petfood, Entoma Petfood may withdraw from the contract. In such a case, Entoma Petfood shall inform the customer without delay and propose a comparable product. If a comparable product is not available, or if the customer does not wish to have that product delivered, Entoma Petfood shall, without delay, reimburse payments made by the customer. Deliveries are free of customs duties within the EU. In the case of delivery in countries outside the EU customs duties, taxes and other levies that may apply shall be borne by the customer.
In the event that supplied products are damaged “en route”, the Entoma Petfood customer service is to be contacted, where possible, without delay. As a result, Entoma Petfood shall have the option of lodging a complaint with the carrier or transport insurer regarding the damage. If the customer fails to provide notification of transport damage, this shall not have any effect whatsoever on the customer's statutory guarantee rights.
In order to fulfil customer orders Entoma Petfood needs to pass on the customer email address, and if available a contact phone number to the delivery company authorised to delivering the goods. This forms part of the contract with Entoma Petfood. The customer does not have the right to object. For further information please see our Data Protection page.

If customers have any further questions about cancellations, they can contact the Entoma Petfood customer service.
The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you, acquires, physical possession of the goods.

To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
You shall send back the goods to:
Entoma Petfood International SAS
