5. Purchase Process

5.1 Registration
Navigation on the Make Notes website does not require registration by the user, who can view and "add to cart" the items currently available. In order to proceed with a purchase, the user and buyer do not have to register, but must provide some personal information.
Alternatively, the user may register or, in the case of prior registration, login to his / her user account, in which case he / she does not have to provide personal data each time he / she makes a purchase. For this purpose, the user has three registration options: i) through his Facebook account ii) through his Google account iii) creating his own account with an email of his choice. The personal data of the user can at any time be changed through the user area. It is also possible to associate one or more addresses with a user account, making the purchase process easier.
Make Notes collects your personal data for billing purposes and assumes a commitment to privacy and security in the processing and maintenance of each user's personal data (see the Privacy Policy of this website). The information that the user provides is intended only to provide a service more appropriate to their characteristics and needs. As such, and for the purposes of delivery of Customer Support orders and contacts, Make Notes hereby informs you that the contact and address information will be transmitted to the shipping companies and potential call center contractors hired by Make Notes. The assignment and use of a password is intended to preserve the security of users' personal data. This password should not be shared with third parties. In case the user chooses to share his password with third parties, he / she will assume all responsibility for the damages that this sharing may occur.

5.2 Product Availability
The availability of products is subject at all times to validation by Make Notes, due to the existence of a limited stock of products.
The products presented may not cover the full range of Make Notes products found at other points of sale that sell branded products and are represented in the catalog.
If, after the purchase and due to circumstances of force majeure, one or more products are not available, Make Notes will inform the user of the unavailability of the item (s) in question. In view of this situation, the buyer may cancel the order, partially or completely, or wait for its availability.

5.3 Payment Methods
Make Notes provides three alternative payment methods:
• Credit Card: the user must provide all the data that is requested. In case the payment platform informs you about not accepting the payment, the order will be automatically canceled.
• Paypal: By selecting this payment method the user will be redirected to the PayPal page. When choosing to pay with PayPal, the previously chosen billing address will be ignored because only the address registered in the user's PayPal account can be used for billing purposes.
• Multibanco Reference: when selecting this method of payment, the user will have 48 hours, after placing the order, to proceed with the payment. The user will find all the necessary information in an ATM, or in the Internet through the banking services of your bank. In any case, simply select, at the time of payment, "PAYMENT OR PURCHASES", followed by "SERVICES".
All the operation of selection of the means of payment to use and introduction of the data inherent to the process of payment of the order is properly protected. All information is encrypted and managed with the most advanced security tools, only accessed by Make Notes.

5.4 Shipping Costs
The shipping costs are borne by the user and added to the total price of the products, being communicated before the user confirms the order and completes the purchase process. The costs depend on the destination of delivery (address specified by the customer):
• For delivery services in Continental Portugal, the shipping costs are € 3.50, except for purchases of more than € 40, for which delivery service is free of charge.
• For delivery services in Spain, the shipping cost is € 5, regardless of the amount of the purchase.
