Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy, which sets out how we will use your information, can be found at Privacy & Security. By using this website, you consent to the terms and conditions in our Privacy Policy.

Contempa will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a distributed denial-of-service attack, viruses or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of this website or to your downloading of any material posted on it, or on any website linked to it.

Orders begin processing upon approval and verification of credit card or DPS information. Certain orders may require special processing because of limited quantities. You will receive email updates with regards to any "out of stock" delays. If any "out of stock" delays are unsatisfactory, you can cancel your order and request a refund of your purchase.

The website, the information on it and any information in emails constitute an invitation to treat and not an offer to supply products. When the customer orders products from Contempa, this constitutes an offer from the customer to buy those products in accordance with these terms and conditions. Contempa’s acceptance of the customer’s order occurs (and the contract is formed) when the items are dispatched to the customer.

Order Process

The customer may order products by completing and submitting the checkout process on the Contempa website. The customer must provide all required information (including name, email address, and payment details) or Contempa may not be able to process the order.

Discretion in Rejecting Orders

No order shall be deemed accepted by Contempa until Contempa has sent the customer a copy of the order. Contempa reserves the exclusive right to accept or reject (for any reason whatsoever and in whole or in part) any order submitted by the customer. If Contempa rejects the customer's order (or part of the order), any money paid by the customer in relation to the rejected part of that order shall be refunded and Contempa shall have no further liability to the customer in relation to the rejected part of that order.

Availability & Cancellation

All orders are subject to the availability of products. If for any reason a product is not available, Contempa will endeavour to notify the non-availability on the website. Contempa may revise the range of products or the specification of any product at any time and without notice to the customer.

Cancellation of Orders

Where products are listed on the website with an incorrect price or with incorrect information, Contempa reserves the right to cancel the customer's order (regardless of whether the customer has made payment for that order). Where the customer has already made payment for an order that is subsequently cancelled by Contempa, Contempa will refund the amount paid by the customer in relation to that order.

Contempa may cancel the customer's order any time prior to order confirmation. Any variation, waiver or cancellation of the customer's order shall have no effect unless accepted in writing by Contempa. Where the Contempa accepts cancellation, Contempa may levy a handling charge of up to 15% of the price.


Site-wide promotions are offered on a limited time basis and are not honored past the expiration date. Site-wide promotions may not be applied to already discounted or bundled products that are already priced below regular retail price of the individual products collectively. These products are noted throughout the website.

Discount Vouchers

In order to redeem a Discount Voucher, you must have an account with Contempa and be logged in. Enter your promo code on the shopping cart page after adding items to your cart.

You cannot use a Discount Voucher in conjunction with any other sales discounts or promotional offers unless the specific terms relating to the Promotional Discount Codes state that you can combine the Promotional Discount code with other offers.

The Discount Voucher will expire on the date specified in the specific terms relating to the Discount Voucher, or before subject to availability of which we will notify you via the website. You cannot use the Promotional Discount Voucher after this date. Discount Vouchers have no cash redemption value.

We reserve the right to vary or discontinue the Discount Voucher scheme at any time. We have the right to revise and amend these terms and conditions of sale from time to time including to reflect changes affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our site's capabilities.

You will be subject to the policies and terms and conditions of sale in force at the time that you use your Discount Voucher, unless any change to those policies or these terms is required to be made by law or governmental authority (in which case it will apply to orders previously placed by you).
