Selecting an Item

- After you have submitted your Order you will receive confirmation from us that your Order has been received, which does not amount to our acceptance of your Order, and is simply an acknowledgment that it has been received.
- After submission, your Order will be open for our acceptance until such time as we advise you of our acceptance or until you retract the Order, whichever occurs earlier.
- Once we have confirmed acceptance of your Order, a binding contractual transaction is created, and your Order may therefore not be retracted once we have accepted it.

- Payment must be made by the use of a debit or credit card issued to you by a financial institution that is considered acceptable to us, via the payment process available on the Site.

- We are under no obligation whatsoever to accept your Order, and unless effective acceptance has taken place, we are entitled to reject your Order in our sole discretion and without providing you with a reason for our decision.
- Should we exercise our right to reject your Order, you will be informed of such fact and your payment will be refunded to you.
- Similarly, prior to acceptance being effected by us, you may cancel your Order and request that your payment is refunded, which we will do.
- Only the official Despatch Confirmation Form referred to in 5.4.1 will constitute acceptance in accordance with these terms. Any other communication sent to you from us will not be construed as acceptance, irrespective of whether such communication is in regard to or in any way related to your Order.
- If we reject your Order due to unavailability of the Item/s you have selected, we may, but are not obliged, to suggest substitute Item/s, and in the event that you wish to order the substituted Item/s, you will be required to place a new Order.

- Notwithstanding the delivery periods indicated on the Site, and due to factors decimal our control, we do not and will not guarantee an exact delivery date.

For the purposes of this clause a ‘responsible third person’ will be a person over the age of 16 years, resident or employed at the nominated delivery address, and delivery will be ‘proved’ by the delivery agent being able to provide the signature of the said responsible third person on the relevant delivery documentation.

- If you wish to withdraw a confirmed Order for any other reason, you must inform the Refinery Customer Care Centre at the contact details shown on the Site, and advise us accordingly.

- acknowledgement requests – like asking for ‘votes’, ‘likes’, or ‘retweets’;
- your personal contact information because it puts your privacy at risk – like your email address or phone number; or
- anything else that isn’t relevant to the purpose or conversations on the social media community in question.
We may edit or remove anything that you publish to our social media communities that is inconsistent with this policy, including anything irrelevant and any conduct, content, or promotional competition related content that is prohibited by this policy. We may moderate any of the following things as described above among others:
- anything that is not relevant to a social media community or the conversation in question;
- anything that results from prohibited conduct, including discrimination, hate speech, harassment, or trolling;
- prohibited content, including content that is illegal, harmful, offensive, or impermissible; or
- prohibited promotional competition related content, including unjustified outcries, discriminatory objections, or prohibited discussions.
We regularly run competitions on our social media pages. These promotional competitions are run in strict accordance with the law to ensure that they are fair and that everyone has the same chance of winning. These promotional competitions are regulated by competition terms and conditions that determine what entries we accept, how we select winners, and how the competition is monitored by auditors. A copy of the terms and conditions are always available to you on our website. You may not engage in any of the following prohibited conduct:
- unjustified outcries, which means strong expressions of public disapproval or anger based on false assumptions – like “The competition was rigged!” (our competitions are run strictly in accordance with the law and any baseless claim to the contrary is defamation against us);
- discriminatory objections, which means negative comments about the competition or its results based on attributes of the individual entrants or winners, including their gender, ethnicity, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation – like “I can’t believe only [insert attribute here] people won!” or “Not even a single [insert attribute here] person won!” (anyone is allowed to enter our competitions and a computer chooses the winners randomly under the supervision of an external party – no one has any control over who wins or who does not and there may be multiple winners with a single attribute and none with yours); and
- prohibited discussions, which means certain aspects of promotional competitions that we are not allowed to talk to you about in terms of our promotional competition rules, like the personal details of the winners.
It is important that you understand the rules of each social media platform. This includes the written rules like their terms of service and the unwritten rules like the manners and etiquette of that social media service that its members generally subscribe to.
NOT OUR VIEWS
What you and other members publish on our social media communities are not our views.
We will do our best to respond to anything you publish to our social media communities timeously, but are not liable for failing to do so. We generally moderate our social media communities from 08h30 to 16h30 on weekdays other than public holidays.
We do not endorse anything you publish to our social media communities merely by acknowledging it in any way, such as a ‘like’, ‘retweet’, ‘favourite’.
If you see any behaviour from other community members who are in breach of this policy, we encourage you to report them to us through an inbox message to the page.
We may take recourse against you for breaching this policy by suspending or banning you from any of our social media communities.
We want you to understand this policy as best as you can so that you can comply with it easily. If there is any aspect of this policy that you don’t understand or if you have any questions about this policy, please contact us using the contact information on our customer services page available here: http://www.refinerystore.co.za/contacts.
Where third parties are involved and where there is an ongoing investigation all Social Media messages are posted without prejudice, and we reserve all our rights.
