  1. Description of Service

Through this website we provide general information about the company’s products and services and we also provide you with the possibility of purchasing our products/services online.

  1. Price

Any online purchases on this website shall be charged at the price advertised on this website at the date the order is placed. All prices shown on the website are indicated in Euro and are inclusive of VAT.

While we try to ensure that all prices on our website are accurate, errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of goods you have ordered we will inform you as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. If we are unable to contact you, we will treat the order as cancelled. If you cancel the order and you have already paid for the goods, you will receive a full refund.

  1. Delivery Costs

Delivery costs shall be clearly indicated where applicable.

  1. Payment Method and Security

All online purchases shall only be accepted against payment by credit card.

The card details are received and processed directly by our payment gateway (PSP), the Transactium Payment Gateway; the card details are transmitted from you to the payment gateway (PSP) encrypted over high-strength SSL for maximum protection and confidentially. MUHC does not at any point handle the card information.

For additional security, your three digit security code found at the back of your card is never stored by the payment gateway (CVV/CVC2). Without this number, additional transactions attempted on your card, without your authorization, would be rejected.

The payment gateway (PSP) is licensed and authorized by Visa, MasterCard and other card associations to act as a payment gateway and is fully audited and compliant with the Payment Card Industry Security Standards.

You undertake and agree to provide correct details to MUHC for the purpose of ordering or purchasing goods from this website.

You also undertake that the credit or debit card you are using is your own and that there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of the goods or services ordered.

  1. Communication

You agree that electronic mail (email) can be used as a long-distance means of communication.

  1. Conclusion of the Contract

The electronic contract between you and us shall be concluded as soon as you have received our electronic acknowledgment, hereby referred to as a confirmatory email, of your order. This confirmatory email will contain all relevant statutory information concerning your contract.

The confirmatory email will also contain a link to these terms and conditions.

You must check that the details on this confirmatory email are correct as soon as possible and you should print out and keep a copy of it.

  1. Cancellations/Return Policy

All purchases are in general non-exchangeable, non-refundable and non-transferable besides cases of cancellation and withdrawal.

You may cancel your order at any time prior to your order being processed by clicking on the ‘cancel’ link next to the product ordered on the website. We can also accept cancellations over the phone. You may call (+356) 2340 8906 during the following office hours: Monday to Friday: 9:00am – 3:00pm.

You will be liable to 5% bank charges when cancelling your order (where applicable). Cancellation of order can be done within 15 calendar days from the date of delivery of the good/s.

You might cancel the purchase:

  • by sending the notice of cancellation by email to  ensuring that you quote your name, address and order reference number; or
  • where you have already received the goods, by returning the goods to MUHC unopened together with the original invoice. We will refund you the purchase price of the goods (less 5% bank charges).

Once we receive notification from you that you wish to withdraw from the contract (in accordance with these terms), any sum debited to us from your credit card in relation to your order will be re-credited to that credit card account as soon as possible and in any event within 30 days of your order, provided that the goods you wish to return are received by MUHC in the condition that they were in when purchased. You will be liable for 5% bank charges in returning the goods to us or cancelling your order.
