5.2 NOTE: Soralconnection will indicate the acceptance of your order by delivering the Goods to you, and only at that point will an agreement of sale between you and Soralconnection come into effect (the “Sale”).

Soralconnection will indicate the rejection of your order by cancelling it and, as soon as possible thereafter, refunding you for any amount already paid.
