(i) After selecting the Products, You place the order by proceeding to the Checkout. You will be guided through the checkout process by a series of instructions on the e-Store. If a selected Product is not in stock, You may request to be notified (via e-mail) once the Product is in stock as described in the checkout process. You agree that Your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms, the Products listed in Your order and there is no binding contract between You and Husqvarna until the order is accepted by Husqvarna. Whilst Husqvarna endeavours to supply all Products listed in Your order, note that Husqvarna is free not to accept Your order for any reason, including where Products are no longer available.
(ii) In placing the order, You will be requested to provide information relating to You and Your order, such as contact details, delivery address and information relating to the selected payment method (e.g. credit card number). You will also be requested to indicate Your preferred retail store for pick-up of the Product(s) (if pick-up is selected as the shipment option) and for returns and warranty repairs.
(iii) You will receive an order acknowledgement and email detailing the Products You have ordered and we will assign You an order number. Please store Your order number and date for future references. This confirms that Husqvarna has received Your request but is not a confirmation or an order acceptance from Husqvarna. It will help Husqvarna if You can tell Husqvarna the order number whenever You contact Husqvarna about Your order.

Upon receipt of such notice, the conclusion of the contract for the purchase of the Product(s) takes place. Actual dispatch will, however, take place subject to what is set out in section 4.3. If a Product that You have ordered is not in stock (including if the ordered quantity is partially not in stock), Husqvarna will contact You so that You can either cancel the order or, where the Product is expected to come back in stock, maintain Your order.
