These terms and conditions are the only conditions that apply to the use of this website and prevail over any other conditions, except in the case of the express agreement of the Trader given previously in writing. These terms and conditions are important for both parties since they protect the user's rights as a customer and our rights as the Trader and aim to establish a legal agreement that binds the parties in a valid manner.
By placing an order, the user confirms that they have read these terms and conditions and that they accept them without any reservations. The user accepts that:
- They can only use this website for legitimate consultation or orders.
- They will not place any speculative, false or fraudulent orders. If we have reason to believe that a certain order is of this nature, we reserve the right to cancel it and inform the proper authorities.
- They must give an email address, postal address, or the details of another form of contact that are correct and complete and accept that the Trader can contact them using these details if necessary.
- If they do not provide the Trader with all the information it considers necessary, it may not be able to conclude the order and/or ensure a quality service.
By placing an order through this website, the user declares that they are of legal age and have the legal capacity to enter into contracts.
The information in these terms and conditions is not a sales proposal but a simple invitation to negotiation. No agreement regarding the products mentioned will be established between the Trader and the user without the Trader having accepted the order (regardless of whether the user's account has been debited or not). If the order is not accepted after any user account has been debited, the respective amount shall be returned in full.
In order to place an order, you must follow the online purchase process and press the "CONFIRM ORDER" button.
Then you get an email confirming that the Trader received your order (the "Confirmation of Order"). You should note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. The order is just a purchase proposal for one or more of our products.
Any order is subject to the respective acceptance by the Trader, which is always confirmed by sending an email saying the products have been shipped - Shipping Confirmation.
The purchase and sale agreement between the Trader and the user (Contract) is only finalised with the Shipping Confirmation communication. The Contract only covers the products mentioned in the Shipping Confirmation. The Trader is under no obligation to supply any other products that may be contained in the order until the shipping is covered in another Shipping Confirmation.
Onda Wetsuits sends orders within the deadline mentioned when you choose the delivery method. The transporters we have agreements with, make their deliveries Monday to Friday between 8:00 and 19:00 at the address you request.
In some countries, the delivery period can vary between 5 and 7 business days.

The user should send all the boxes, instructions/documents and original packaging materials with the product to be returned whenever possible. The Trader inspects the returned product. Any product that has been damaged, that is not in the same conditions as the user received it or shows signs of being used apart from just opening the package, does not allow for the right of cancellation and refund.
The return is free in mainland Portugal, in the case of the Islands, the User is liable for the shipping costs associated with the return (return expenses).
Return of defective products
If a user believes a product they have been sent is not in accordance with the Contract, they should contact the Trader using the electronic form as quickly as possible, saying the state of the product and the respective defects.
The Trader shall inspect the returned product and inform the user of the right to a replacement or a refund (if that is the case) by email in a reasonable period of time. Generally, the Trader makes the refund or replacement as soon as possible and, in any case, within 14 days of the confirmation by email that the user has the right to the refund or replacement of the defective product. Products that the user returns because of a defect, if this is confirmed, are refunded for the total amount paid, including shipping fees and return expenses. The refund of any amount paid is always by the same method as used in the purchase of the product.
The refund is paid as soon as possible, on average 2 business days after receiving the returned items at our warehouse (in any case, within 14 days of the date of the return notification).
