Registration is a precondition to placing an order. After you put the items in your cart, you can choose how you would like to receive the books (Hungarian post, other delivery services, or personal takeover). When you click on the „proceed with purchase” button, you are officially making an offer and are obliged to pay. You will get an automatic confirmation about your order after you have placed it; this confirmation will include the number of your order, the chosen payment and delivery method, the sum of your order, as well as your billing and delivery address. In case you do not receive this notification, you are not obliged to pay, and please contact us via e-mail. Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity to revise and change the data you entered. Placing an order means that you are entering into a non-signed contract, which is archived. The language of the contract is Hungarian.
The prices are in EUR and HUF, and include VAT.

You will receive your invoice along with your delivered books. Invoices are not sent via e-mail.
We are doing our best to make delivery as fast as possible. Your books are posted in 2–7 days after the order is received. The time it will take them to arrive to you depends on the postal and delivery services as well.
III. If an order is impossible to fulfil
In case an order is impossible to fulfil, e.g. because the ordered books went out of stock, Archaeolingua will notify you, and if you already paid, the money will be sent back to you in 14 days. No additional charges will apply to you in this regard.
Archaeolingua aims to constantly revise and correct the data on the website and to keep the information on availability updated. However, orders may be impossible to meet due to unforeseeable problems, such as damage to our stock. This does not mean that the purchaser is misled.
IV. Withdrawal and complaint
In accordance with Government Decree 45/2014 (II.26), the purchaser has the right to withdraw from the order within 14 days after receiving the product, without any justification. To exercise this right of withdrawal you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from your order by a clear statement. You may communicate withdrawal in e-mail (email@example.com), or by using the form presented in the Decree. You may also withdraw from your purchase in the period between placing the order and receiving the product.
The date of receiving the product is the date when you take it over from the postal or delivery service or in our office.
In case you withdraw from purchase, your money is transferred back in a way that you prefer, after consulting you. The cost of delivery is transferred back to you only in case you withdraw your complete order, and if the items have not yet been posted. We cannot accept items sent back with payment on delivery.
In some cases specified in Government Decree 45/2014, §29, it is not possible to withdraw from your order:
- if your order concerns digital content that is delivered to you by non-material means, such as digital downloads (e-books, pdfs), in case the content is served to you on your explicit request, after you acknowledged and accepted that withdrawal is not possible after you start downloading the content. In case you experience any problems with the e-books (pdfs) you purchased, please contact us via e-mail.

The purchaser may ask for a defective product to be replaced, except in cases when replacement is impossible or implies disproportionate costs for Archaeolingua. In case Archaeolingua cannot meet a warranty claim, the purchaser may withdraw from his/her order. Warranty claims based on non-essential defections cannot be considered. Regulations formulated in the Hungarian Civil Code apply in cases of warranty claims.
Archaeolingua cannot be held responsible in the following cases:
