BestPharmacy.gr is against the collection of data and the placing of orders by minors, i.e. persons under the age of 18.
10.1 VALID ORDER
The visitor of the website has the capability to place a valid order if he has the legal capacity according to the Greek Civil Code, i.e., if he has reached the age of eighteen and is not in judicial support for the conclusion of a sales contract or a distance selling contract. The company reserves the right to claim from the supervisor or guardian any orders made by people who do not have the legal capacity.
Placing an order is the conclusion of a distance selling contract, subject to the relevant legal framework (Article 4 Law 2251/1994, as amended each time and in force). The consumer through the website is informed by the company before the completion of his order, before filling in and submitting the relevant form for: (a) the identity and address of the supplier (b) the essential characteristics of the products (c) the prices, quantities and shipping costs of the products, as well as taxes (VAT), (d) the method of payment and delivery, (e) the duration of the offers or prices, (f) the right of withdrawal.

The prices of the products included on this website are final, i.e., the legally applicable to each product VAT (tax) is included. These prices relate to the quantities available in our warehouses, and BestPharmacy.gr reserves the right to adjust the prices and availability of its products.
10.3 PRICE PAYMENT
The order payment method is chosen by the visitor/user and includes the option of charging a credit or debit card (selected by the order submission system), the use of the electronic payment systems (e.g. by PayPal, Viva Payments, or others), or the COD (Cash on Delivery).
10.3.1 PAYMENT BY CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD
The online store BestPharmacy.gr accepts VISA or Mastercard credit or debit cards. There is a possibility of payment in instalments, depending on the bank that has issued the credit card. The amount of total payment, in addition to the value of the products, includes both shipping and any commission costs for the selected payment method (e.g., COD).
For purchases made by credit/debit card, the customer should follow the instructions found in this online store and fill in the order form the number and other details of the credit/debit card. The card is charged only if the details and its validity are checked and certified. The customer is solely responsible for the correct entry and validity of the credit/debit card information. In any case of purchase, the buyer must also be the holder of the card used for the transaction and his billing address must be the same as the billing address of the card.
10.3.2 PAYMENT BY COD
The online store BestPharmacy.gr supports payment by COD (cash on delivery), where the customer pays the employee of the shipping company/coutier, acting at the behest of the BestPharmacy.gr with the delivery of the order to their address. The extra fee for COD payments is charged according to the fee of the courier service. In these cases, the following specific conditions of delivery and withdrawal apply: (a) The customer has the right to withdraw from the order with full compensation before the delivery of the order to the shipping company/courier. If the order has been delivered from BestPharmacy.gr to the courier service, the customer must be charged the shipping and delivery costs which cannot be reimbursed. (b) Before shipping the order, BestPharmacy.gr can confirm the customer's details and order by telephone and reserves the right to refuse or delay the execution of the order if there is a reasonable belief that the customer will withdraw from the order upon delivery or will not pay the courier as required. In this case the customer will have the right to change the payment method for the order. (c) In the case of COD, sales documents (proof or invoice) can be sent by post after receipt and payment of the order to the courier.
In both of the above payment methods (via card or COD) there is the option of issuing either a retail receipt or an invoice. Invoice is issued to companies and freelancers, provided that they fill in the following company details at the time of order: company name, address, telephone number, Tax Registration Number, Tax office and the profession for freelancers.
10.4 PRODUCT DELIVERY
Generally the delivery of products is made only to the buyer in person by showing his original identity card or passport. In case the payment has been made by credit card, it is additionally required at the time of delivery of the products for the credit card to be shown. The receipt of products from a third party shall be prohibited unless the purchaser has authorized a third person in writing, with an authentication of the signature, to do so. In this case, the third party must present the above documents in order to complete the delivery of the order.
International shipments may need to pass through Customs at the recipient country, according to the country's laws. Customs clearance is the sole responsibility of the recipient (i.e. customer) only. The recipient (i.e. the customer) is also solely responsible for (1) any charges outside of Greece, such as custom duties, taxes, storage costs, fees or fines, as well as for (2) any documentation, licenses, prescriptions or certifications requested by Customs or authorities outside of Greece. Bestpharmacy.gr and the Company is not responsible for any charges or documentation outside of Greece, or any packages remaining or being returned from Customs in any country.

The terms and cost of delivery for any Domestic and International shipments are described on the Shipping & Rates page of BestPharmacy.gr. Customers must read and accept these shipping terms on that page before placing an order.
10.5 DELIVERY TIME
The delivery of the products takes place usually within 5 working days and depends on the completion of the order, the availability of the products, the place of shipment of the products and the confirmation of the customer's details. In some cases the delivery time may be extended if the consumer has been informed in advance.
The order may be delayed for the following reasons: 1. The product has been delayed to be shipped by our supplier. In this case, BestPharmacy.gr will contact the customer to ask him if he wants the order delivered to him without this product or to be offered an alternative. This item will be shipped to the customer after it has been received in our warehouses. 2. The product has already been removed or is out of stock and is not available. In this case, BestPharmacy.gr will contact the customer to provide him with an alternative, if he wishes so. 3. In times of extreme weather events or strikes as well as in case of force majeure, which may affect the transport and delivery of the customer's order. In this case, BestPharmacy.gr will contact the customer as soon as possible in order for the customer to indicate whether he wishes to complete the order under these conditions. 4. In case it is impossible to contact the customer by phone and/or email (if, for example, there is a problem with the order, either in relation to the product or in relation to its payment) because, for example, the details of the customer who registered are incorrect or out-of-date.
10.6 SHIPPING COSTS
The delivery of the products is made by cooperating shipping/courier companies, to which BestPharmacy.gr forwards the personal information of users, such as name, shipping address, contact information and telephone numbers, in order to allow the delivery and completion of orders.
The cost of shipping and handling and any fees related to the payment (e.g. COD payment fees) shall be borne by the consumer/customer and are paid to the employee of the courier company at the time of delivery of the product (if the payment is made with COD), or at the checkout by credit/debit card, or electronic payment (e.g. Paypal), if such is chosen at the checkout.
For purchases over 39 EUR and up to 5kg weight, the consumer/buyer will not be charged shipping costs. This excludes shipments to remote/hard-to-access areas and addresses outside Greece. If COD payment is selected, there is an associated COD fee at the checkout. BestPharmacy.gr reserves the right to change the above minimum amount and the conditions for free shipping.
10.7 CONSUMER RIGHTS
10.7.1 Right of withdrawal.
The consumer has the right to withdraw from the sale unjustifiably within fourteen (14) calendar days, if a longer deadline has not been agreed, returning the product to its original state, without cost other than shipping, return costs and any charges or commissions for the payment method chosen. This period shall begin on receipt of the products. For the exercise of the right of withdrawal, the consumer has an obligation to complete electronically and send the withdrawal form located on the BestPharmacy.gr website and to show the order invoice or retail receipt.
The refund of the price shall be made in the same way as the payment was made, except in the case of COD. In case the price has been charged to the consumer's credit card, the exercise of the right of withdrawal also entails the termination of the relevant trilateral contract between a consumer, a supplier and a bank, without payment of compensation.
If the price has been paid with COD and the consumer exercises the right of withdrawal then the refund will be made by deposit in the consumer's bank account, which must therefore inform the company in writing by providing information on the exact number and other details of the account, as well as the banking institution in which it is held. In this case the consumer assumes sole responsibility for the correctness and validity of the data and information provided. Especially in the case of COD, the refundable price does not include transport costs and courier company charges for COD.
10.7.2 Right of replacement.
The consumer has the right to request the replacement of a product, since what was delivered to him was defective, damaged, or does not correspond to the product ordered.

In case of receipt of defective, altered or damaged product it is also necessary to send photographic material in which the defect or damage to the product and the package received from the courier company is obvious. It is also necessary for the product to be in the state in which it was received, not to have been used, and the consumer must have the invoice or receipt document. In any event, the maximum refund period for the submission of a replacement application may not be extended beyond fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of receipt. The shipment of the new product will take place within a period equal to the time of delivery of the original product. In case of refund, the return rules apply as in the case of withdrawal.
