1. Shipping fees and policy
1.1. AB Metals FZCO strives to provide comprehensive and accurate information to its customers, but please note that the photos, videos, texts, and prices of the products displayed on the website are for informational purposes only and are not contractual.
1.2. The prices of the products shown on the website are listed in US dollars ($), Indian rupees (₹), Euro (€), and UAE dirhams (AED).
1.3. AB Metals FZCO provides a list of countries to which it delivers on its website, and it reserves the right to modify this list at any time. If the customer requires shipping to a country that is not listed, they must contact AB Metals FZCO's Customer Service (firstname.lastname@example.org, tel. +971 50 259 7330) to obtain a cost estimate and check if this option is available.
1.4. Shipping fees are calculated and payable per order, as it is not technically feasible to consolidate multiple orders into a single shipment. AB Metals FZCO insures all orders shipped to the customer for the sales price of the purchased product(s) from AB Metals FZCO or, for the product(s) stored with AB Metals FZCO, for the metal value at the time of the delivery request.
1.5. The customer acknowledges that the products and services provided by AB Metals FZCO, along with their respective information, pricing, and data availability, may be subject to errors, oversights, mistakes, limitations, delays, and service interruptions from time to time. These issues may arise due to factors such as human or mechanical errors, typographical errors, and technical difficulties related to AB Metals FZCO's computer hardware and software, telecommunication and operating systems, databases, or business processes and procedures. Furthermore, problems inherent in the use of the internet and electronic communications, including force majeure events and acts and omissions of third parties, may also impact the products and services provided by AB Metals FZCO, its information and data, or such communications. As a result, the customer acknowledges that AB Metals FZCO cannot be held responsible or liable for any delays, failures, or losses caused by or resulting from any of the aforementioned problems, in whole or in part.

Consequently, the customer will not hold AB Metals FZCO responsible and liable, in any way whatsoever, for any delays, failure, or other loss due to, caused by, or resulting from any of the problems described here above, in whole or in part.

2.7. The customer is solely responsible for any transport or shipping costs, taxes, and risks associated with the shipment of the product(s) due to reasons attributable to the customer.
