PRICING AND PRODUCT INFORMATION
Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of pricing and product information. Instances may arise in which a product(s) are priced incorrectly on the website or where the product information supplied is inaccurate. Craig Fouché Photography will not be held bound by the incorrect price(s) in cases where such error(s) occur. Due to fluctuations in exchange rates and consequent variances in our local suppliers’ pricing, as well as the occurrence of periodic supplier price increases, Craig Fouché Photography cannot guarantee that the price at which an item is back-ordered will be the price at which the goods will be sold once the stock has landed in South Africa. In such instances, Craig Fouché Photography will either refund the customer the price paid or charge the difference in price to the customer should the customer still wish to purchase the product(s). Craig Fouché Photography will not be held responsible for errors in the product information supplied.
IMAGES AND MEDIA
Product images, videos, and all media are used for display purposes only. Product media and content is supplied to me from the product suppliers and manufacturers. Craig Fouché Photography will not be held bound by what additional accessories or extras are displayed in any of the media.
VAT (VALUE ADDED TAX)
VAT is charged at 15%. All prices listed on Craig Fouché Photography are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated. Goods that are exported outside of the borders of the Republic of South Africa do not carry a VAT charge. Whilst every effort is made to provide accurate estimates for delivery times, Craig Fouché Photography is not liable for any delays in delivery that occur as a result of my preferred courier partners schedules.
All products sold by Craig Fouché Photography are covered by a minimum of a one-year guarantee, reckoned from the date of purchase, to protect you against manufacturing defect only. In the majority of instances, the manufacturer of the product in South Africa endorses this guarantee. In such instances, the manufacturer can be approached directly to affect the repair, or Craig Fouché Photography will handle the entire repair process on behalf of the customer. Where a product is defective it is the responsibility of the customer to return the product at his or her own risk and expense to Craig Fouché Photography. Craig Fouché Photography will facilitate the repair or replacement and then ship the product back to the customer within the borders of South Africa, bearing all risks and costs. Craig Fouché Photography is not obliged to repair products that fall outside of the one-year guarantee period or products that are damaged accidentally, however, Craig Fouché Photography in seeking to deliver the highest standard of customer service will gladly assist the customer in having the product repaired via the network of repair agents with which Craig Fouché Photography has business dealings.
The stock of all goods on offer is limited. Craig Fouché Photography shall take all reasonable efforts to discontinue the offer as soon as stock is no longer available. However, should items still be offered after stocks are sold, Craig Fouché Photography shall only be liable to refund monies where it is unable to fulfil orders at advertised prices. Where goods are advertised as having an estimated delivery time or are on backorder, Craig Fouché Photography is not responsible for delays on these estimates. These estimates are merely guidelines and may shift with stock availability and supplier scheduling.

No credit card information is stored on my website – it is processed securely via ‘PayFast’, a registered payment gateway that operates closely with all major banks.
