However colour clarity will depend upon your own personal monitor and we therefore cannot guarantee that the colour of the actual Item is absolutely accurate. Before placing an order please read through these Terms.

To be eligible to purchase Items on this Website you must:

a) be the holder of a valid debit/credit card.
b) warrant that the personal information which you are required to provide when you register as a customer is true, accurate and current in all respects.

If your personal information changes then please notify us immediately by contacting Customer Care on the following email hello@the-hosta.com

You agree not to impersonate any other person or entity or to use a false name or a name that you are not authorised to use.

By using this site you agree to comply with, and be bound by, these Terms.

We may from time to time change these Terms at our sole discretion. By using this Website after any such change(s), you agree to comply with, and be bound by, the Terms as changed.

2. Making a purchase

When you order an Item from The-Hosta.com you are offering to buy it for the price stated, subject to these Terms.

You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of instructions on the Website. You place your order for Items from the Website by clicking on the Place Order button at the end of the online order process.
Once you have placed your order, we will send you an email acknowledging the exact details of your order, providing you with a payment reference and the value of your order that will be debited from your credit/debit card. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from The-Hosta.com.

Unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order in accordance with the Returns policy set out in section 3b below, our acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place when you receive an email from us notifying you that we have dispatched the Items ordered by you.

Our acceptance of your order will be deemed complete and received by you at the time and date of sending of the email, which time and date is specified on the email. The deemed time and date of receipt by you shall apply regardless of whether, for reasons outside our control, you have not received that email.

If you require any information regarding your order(s) please contact Customer Care, by email hello@the-hosta.com

We may not accept your order if (i) an item you have ordered is out of stock, (ii) if your card is due to expire within 28 days of your purchase date (iii) we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment or (iv) if we identify a product or pricing error. We reserve the right to reject any offer to purchase by you at any time and at our sole discretion.

If we are unable to fulfil your order following our order acknowledgement, we will contact you by email or telephone advising you of this. See the Returns policy set out in section 3b below.

We will try to keep our Website as up to date as reasonably possible, but cannot guarantee that any particular Item will always be available. If we can’t supply any Item we will release the funds being held in your account for the purchase.

3. Price and Delivery

3a. Orders

Currency: Your card will be charged in the currency you choose: GBP £, EUR €, USD $, SEK KR. Please note, the purchase currencies you can choose from may be restricted by your shipping destination. Prices for shipment to the UK will be shown in GBP £. Prices for shipment to the USA will be shown in USD $. Where shipment is outside Europe to the Americas – North and South including Canada and the Caribbean – prices are shown in USD $. Prices for shipment to all other countries will be shown in EUR €.

The price displayed to you at the checkout is the price you pay. This will not vary later whatever currency fluctuations occur. Refunds will also be set at the price you paid not the price in the currency concerned at the date of refund.

DDP: Please note that to assist customers, orders shipped to Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Japan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, mainland United States and Qatar are now shipped on a Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) basis. This means that all relevant import taxes and duties will be included in the product price displayed on the website (where the individual product or total order value is over the relevant country duty threshold). The-Hosta.com will account to the relevant authorities for all duty payable. Please note, duty is applied as a flat rate percentage of the total item value for all products. 

To help clients approximate prices in their local currency, the website has a currency converter feature. Please note this is for display purposes only and prices are calculated using regularly updated exchange rates. Final payment will be made in either GBP £, EUR €, or USD $, AUD $ or HKD $. As such, final credit card and debited amounts may vary based on currency fluctuations and bank commissions. The-Hosta.com encourages clients to contact their home bank to receive the accurate price conversion and any bank commissions related to the transactions.

Delivery to countries other than Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Japan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, mainland United States and Qatar that are outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility (where applicable). If so, the shipping company will contact you by telephone once your Items are in customs to let you know the cost. Be aware that this may delay your delivery time as goods held at customs will be your responsibility to pay the necessary charges for local authorities to release the goods.
Amerikaanse omzetbelasting:

The Hosta has not established nexus in any U.S state and therefore we are not required to collect and remit sales tax on sales in that state. Sales tax is a tax on retail purchases and it is used to pay for state and local budget items like schools roads and fire departments. The Hosta currently has no sales tax obligation in the USA. If applicable US customers have the obligation to pay use tax directly to the state where they reside. It is the customer’s (purchaser’s) responsibility to self-accrue and remit the use tax due on the purchase where appropriate. It is your responsibility as the customer to report any purchases of tangible personal property that have not been taxed by The-Hosta.com and pay use tax on those purchases unless exempt under local State law. Please consult your local US State tax department if you have further questions. 


De Hosta is weliswaar een geregistreerd bedrijf in het Verenigd Koninkrijk, maar is niet verplicht om BTW te innen op de verkoop, aangezien wij niet voldoen aan de jaarlijkse drempels voor ingezeten bedrijven (in de 27 lidstaten van de EU plus Noorwegen Zwitserland en het Verenigd Koninkrijk).

We aim to deliver your chosen items to the place and person of your choice, in perfect condition and in the shortest possible time. Our delivery charges are dependent on your shipping destination. Please refer to our delivery section to view timing and costs. Estimated delivery times are to be used as a guide only. The-Hosta.com cannot take responsibility for delays owing to customs clearance or payment issues. All purchases are insured by us while in transit until it is delivered to you. If you wish to track your parcel, please refer to the email you were sent containing your tracking number or alternatively email us at hello@the-hosta.com and we will track your shipment for you.

Please order from The-Hosta.com with enough lead-time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the delivery time as The-Hosta.com cannot be responsible for this.

If your order will not be delivered within the timeframe specified at ordering we will notify you and try to rectify the situation as quickly as is practically possible.

All new orders are deemed separate and each is treated individually.

As The-Hosta.com online purchases may be delivered to addresses other than the billing address given by the card holder, for example as with the case of a gift being purchased and addressed to a friend, as a security precaution, an email and a copy of the invoice will be sent to the cardholder’s registered email address and home address, and we will require a signature upon delivery for all goods shipped.

Please visit our Delivery Section for full details regarding deliveries.

3b. Returns and Cancellations

Customer satisfaction is always our top priority, and as such we handle each query on an individual basis to the best of our ability.

16. UK Tax Strategy 

This section relates to our UK tax strategy and our approach to tax compliance, reporting and planning. This tax strategy applies to the UK resident business that forms THEHOSTA Ltd. This section is regarded as complying with our statutory obligations under Finance Act 2016, Schedule 19 Part 2.

The overriding principal which drives our tax strategy is to pay the correct amount of tax in the correct jurisdiction at the correct time. This is reinforced by the following tax objectives:

  • (i) Comply with relevant laws and regulations in relation to all taxes. This applies not only to the letter of the law but also the intent of the law.
  • (ii) Maintain a transparent and collaborative relationship with HMRC and overseas tax authorities. This includes proactively approaching HMRC to discuss potential issues and gain certainty on tax positions.
  • (iii) Report and pay all tax liabilities in an accurate and timely manner.
  • (iv) Take a balanced approach to tax planning, ensuring that transactions are not undertaken solely to create a tax advantage. THEHOSTA Ltd does not pursue aggressive tax planning and the business is structured in an efficient manner based around the commercial needs of the business.
