In cases of delayed payment of the monies due over and above the timescale stated above, late payment charges calculated at 3 times the statutory rate will be automatically applied by BATUCADA as is their right, without the need of any formality or prior demand and will imply the immediate collection of all monies due by the Customer, without prejudice to any and all other action.

Notwithstanding special circumstances or the unavailability of one or more of the products, the products ordered will be delivered at the same time. Deliveries are made by an independent courier.
BATUCADA is committed to delivering ordered products within the timescale specified here above, which are only an estimate of delivery times. Consequently, should the timescale be exceeded, no damages or interest may be applied, neither can the Customer cancel or retract the order.

The Customer must check the state of the delivered products and has 3 days from the delivery date to address a registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt to signal any reservations or complaints about the non-conformity or any defect which is apparent in the delivered products, with the necessary, relevant justification.
Failure to do so means that the products are deemed conform to the order and are lacking in any apparent defect and no further complaint can be considered by BATUCADA.
BATUCADA will replace any delivered products which exhibit apparent defects or non-conformity at its own cost and as soon as possible once this has been duly proven by the Customer.
6 - Transfer of Ownership - Risk Transfer
The Transfer of Ownership of the products and the related Transfer of Risk of loss or deterioration will take effect as soon as the products ordered are handed over to the courier, whatever the payment and delivery dates.
