2.4.1 Formation of contract related to Standard Products
All information on the Website is an invitation to treat only. In other words, the information is not an offer or binding contract. You agree that your order is an offer to purchase the Products listed in your order.
Align Lab is entitled to verify an order in advance at all times and/or to refuse to accept an order without providing reasons and with no liability to you or any third parties. If Align Lab does not confirm acceptance of your order within ten working days, it is deemed to have been refused.
All orders submitted by you are subject to acceptance by Align Lab. We may choose not to accept your order at our own discretion. Examples of when we may not accept your order are as follows:

2. If we are unable to obtain authorization of your payment;
3. If shipping restrictions may apply to a Product;
If Products shown on the Website contain a manifest error such as being incorrectly priced or otherwise incorrectly described.
After your order has been placed, we will send you an order acknowledgement email with your order number and details of the Products you have offered to purchase and details of any delivery services. Acceptance of your order and the formation of a contract of sale of the Standard Products between you and Align Lab will not take place unless and until you receive an e-mail from Align Lab which confirms the shipping of the Standard Products from our warehouse.
2.5 Retention of Title
All Products will remain the property of Align Lab until you have paid all amounts owing to us in full under any agreement, including the payment of costs, earlier or later deliveries or partial deliveries. You may not sell, dispose of or encumber any Product before full title thereof has passed to you.
2.6 Quality and Maintenance of Products

Deliveries will be done on business days, not being a public holiday in your country or in the area in which our Align Lab warehouse is located. Therefore, please, take into account any public holidays including any national, provincial and/or local holidays in your country of residence and in the city of Singapore (Align Lab warehouse address). Note that public holidays may vary per country and per year. We suggest checking all public holidays to get a better estimation of delivery periods.
Note that Delivery periods are indicative and are therefore not regarded as strict deadlines. The mere fact that a delivery period is exceeded does not entitle you to compensation.
Align Lab is entitled, insofar as reasonably possible, to make split deliveries so that you receive your Products as soon as possible. There are no additional costs associated with such split deliveries. However, in the event that you request that Align Lab delivers in parts, Align Lab may charge you for extra delivery costs. Each split order shall constitute a separate sales contract. If Align Lab is late delivering a part or one split order is faulty, that will not entitle you to cancel any other split order.
In the unlikely event that after entering into the sales contract, Align Lab can no longer deliver your Products and is not responsible for this situation, Align Lab will be entitled to terminate the sales contract. Align Lab will, of course, inform you as soon as reasonably practicable and reimburse any payments made.

It is extremely rare for our Products to be damaged or defective. Align Lab has a legal obligation to make sure that our Products conform to the sales contract.
Returned Products are inspected by the Align Lab Quality Assurance Department and refunded if the damage is the result of a manufacturing defect or deviation from factory specifications. We undertake to fully refund the cost of any defective Products.
If the problem was caused by reasons other than materials quality or assembly process, the original product is returned to you. We do not refund Products:
