WINKIE is not responsible for any translation errors or misunderstandings contained in the translated general conditions of sale and/or the website. The purchase agreement is governed by Spanish law.
1.3 Images of the pigeons
WINKIE's team of specialists works on the realization of the photograph and the retouching of it to be the most faithful to reality. However, WINKIE is not responsible for the image reflecting all the colours, shades or details of the animal. Due to natural events such as moulting or natural growth. These are living beings that undergo variations throughout their lives and the photo cannot reflect all the details.

The identity of the pigeon is adequately demonstrated by WINKIE by means of the pedigree, the title deed and the pigeon's leg ring. The above mentioned documents, unless otherwise agreed, are transferred by WINKIE to the Buyer at the time of delivery of the pigeon or shortly after delivery by ordinary mail.
In view of the nature of the good being sold, as it is a live animal, the Buyer recognises the possible infertility or reduced fertility of the pigeon, despite the efforts made by WINKIE in this respect and as detailed below, has no influence on the conformity of the delivered animal.
In view of the nature of the good being sold, as it is a living animal, the Buyer acknowledges that the perfect health of the pigeon, despite the efforts made by WINKIE in this respect and as detailed below and in the various sections of this website, is not essential for the fulfilment by WINKIE of its delivery obligations.
WINKIE's website shows the sex of most of the pigeons on sale, in any of the modalities. The sexing tests are carried out by DNA and are 99.9% reliable. Please ask us before sending your order for the possibility of adding a paternity certificate for 60 ?.

5. Shipping and Returns
5.1 General information on shipments
It is important to emphasize that the Buyer is responsible for the transport. WINKIE offers support to manage this transport, in the name and on behalf of the Buyer. WINKIE reserves the right to invoice the Buyer for the costs of shipping and handling, if it considers it necessary.
When the purchase process is completed (through auction, direct sale or any other formula reflected on WINKIE's website), the shopping cart on the website will show the shipping costs involved in this purchase or how to calculate them.
In the event that there is a specific warning about the transport during the purchase process or the information does not appear, WINKIE will contact you as soon as possible.
The shipment will be made through transport companies specialised in the shipment of live animals, which do not belong to WINKIE. We will proceed in accordance with the health and transport preparation protocols and deadlines of the WINKIE Breeding Station, established for the benefit of the pigeons.
At the WINKIE Breeding Station we carry out protocols every time we remove a pigeon from its loft to ensure the health of the pigeon. You can see these processes in detail in our blog.
We will inform you of the expected delivery dates for each consignment; however, these will be estimates of the final date, due to circumstances beyond WINKIE's control, such as the condition of the pigeon, the management of the transport agency or the climate.
Consult the price lists that WINKIE manages in the name and on behalf of the Buyer through the following link: https://winkiepigeons.com/es/información-sobre-envío-de-palomas.
WINKIE does not guarantee delivery of the pigeon to destinations other than those listed in the above link. Please contact WINKIE before purchasing your pigeon if the place of delivery is not one of those detailed in the shipping section of the website.
The promotions on the website may affect these delivery conditions and the same usual prices may not be applied.
Any modification of prices or possible extra charges (for example in a special auction), will be communicated by WINKIE through the official channels, as well as on the front page of the auctions, in its Auction Features section.
All shipments are made after collection of the animal and transport costs. WINKIE does not send cash on delivery because of the risk to the health of the animals that this system of payment could cause.
5.3 Claiming shipments and returns
After the delivery of the animal, the Buyer will have a maximum period of 24 hours to make any kind of claim.
No returns of animals are accepted. If you receive a dead animal or one with obvious signs of illness, you must take several photographs of it in its original packaging (unopened) and send them to WINKIE for subsequent analysis and to certify that the problem with the animal has been caused by the courier company and, subsequently, initiate the procedures for reimbursement or replacement by another specimen. In the event of opening the packaging, any right to reimbursement for dead or sick animals will be lost within the time limits indicated.
6. Exemption from liability
6.1 Minor errors or force majeure
Without prejudice to the legal guarantee obligations, WINKIE is not responsible to the Buyer for any damage suffered by the Buyer due to a minor error of WINKIE and/or its employees or agents.
Similarly, WINKIE is not responsible and cannot be obliged to pay any compensation to the Buyer in the case of temporary or permanent lack of performance due to force majeure. Force majeure is considered to be those causes that are beyond the control of WINKIE, such as outbreaks of disease, strikes, transport delays, import or export bans . In the case of a situation of temporary force majeure that extends beyond thirty working days, WINKIE reserves the right to invalidate the purchase agreement, without being responsible for any related compensation due to the Buyer.
6.2. Termination of contract
WINKIE has the right to unilaterally terminate the purchase contract without prior recourse to legal action against the Buyer, in the case of a serious deficiency of the Buyer against one or more of its contractual obligations, in the event that, once a notice of default has been issued by WINKIE, this has not resulted in any response from the Buyer within a period of thirty working days (in the event that more than one notice of default is sent, then this term will be determined on the basis of the first notice of default). WINKIE reserves the right to claim additional damages from the Buyer.
Non-payment of the total purchase price within the term referred to in that term will in any case be considered as a sufficient deficiency of the Buyer to entitle WINKIE to a unilateral and non-judicial termination of the purchase.
