When a Product promotion or sales are on, AUBADE indicates a reference price (or struck-through price) next to the Product retail price that usually corresponds to the Recommended Retail Price AUBADE gives its distributors in the United Kingdom.

If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as a mispricing.
Payment for all Products must be by credit or debit card approved by us or by PayPal. Payment is made through a secure electronic payment service provided by a banking institution. The bank data entered by you (card number, security code and expiry date of the card) when paying by credit or debit card are immediately encrypted and are not subject to any transmission to us.
