Terms of Service
§ 1 SCOPE AND PARTIES
(1) These General Terms and Conditions, in the version applicable at the time an order is placed, govern the relationship between our company(the “company”) and the customer (the “Customer”),and apply to transactions at this Online Store . When placing an order the Customer can access the General Terms and Conditions via the links in the Online Store or save them on his computer and/or print them out. The General Terms and Conditions that apply to the Customer’s order will, however, be sent to him separately, together with the acknowledgment and receipt or contract confirmation, as well as when the goods are delivered, on a durable storage media (e.g. as an e-mail, pdf attachment or printout on paper).
(2) The following company provides customer service for the Online Store on the Seller’s behalf. The Customer may contact it with questions, requests or complaints: E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
§ 2 THE ORDER PROCESS
(1) The Online Store merely constitutes an invitation to the Customer to make an offer to enter into a purchase contract for the goods presented in the Online Store.
(2) The Customer may select items from the Seller’s range of goods and collect these in a “Shopping Bag” by clicking on the “Add to Shopping Bag” button. By clicking on the button “Place order and pay”, the Customer makes an offer to purchase the goods that are in his Shopping Bag (the “Order”).
(3) Goods will only be delivered in the quantities usual for private households. For business inquiries please contact email@example.com.
(4) Before placing an Order, the Customer can view and amend the details of his Order at any time by clicking on the “Shopping Bag & Checkout” button.
(5) After submitting his Order, the Customer will automatically be sent an acknowledgment of receipt by e-mail with a summary of the details of his Order. This automatic acknowledgment of receipt does not constitute acceptance of the Customer’s offer by the Seller; it merely documents the fact that the Seller has received the Customer’s Order.
(6) A binding contract of sale is first concluded when the Seller accepts the Customer’s Order. The Seller is entitled but not obliged to accept the Customer’s offer within 7 days from its receipt. The Seller declares its acceptance by sending the Customer a dispatch confirmation by e-mail (also referred to as the “Contract Confirmation”).
(7) If several items are included in an Order, a contract is only concluded in respect of the items expressly mentioned in the Contract Confirmation.
(8) The aforegoing also applies where, due to his selected method of payment, the Customer has already paid the purchase price or given payment instructions before the conclusion of the contract. If for any reason no contract is concluded, the Seller will notify the Customer of this by e-mail (in the case of contractual acceptance in respect of part of the Order, it will do this together with Contract Confirmation in respect of available items),and refund the Customer the pre-payment without delay.
(9) The contract is concluded in English. The Seller will save a copy of the contract wording (consisting of the Order, the General Terms and Conditions and the Contract Confirmation),and forward it to the Customer.
§ 3 DELIVERY, DELIVERY TIMES, AVAILABILITY OF GOODS
(1) Unless agreed otherwise, the goods will be delivered to the Customer at the delivery address provided. The Seller will notify the Customer of the delivery time, where appropriate, during the order process, and in the dispatch confirmation. Unless otherwise stated, delivery time for standard deliveries will be approximately 6 to 8 business days from the contract confirmation within the USA and 12 to 15 business days outside of the USA (subject to availability). Further information about dispatch options, the carriers used and the delivery process may be viewed on the Online Store’s information pages.
(2) After the goods have been handed over to the carrier, the Customer will receive an e -mail with a confirmation of dispatch from the Seller and a tracking link allowing him to monitor the delivery status of his Order. The delivery is made through USPS or HKPS.
(3) If the Seller is unable for reasons beyond his control to meet a binding delivery deadline (unavailability of goods, for example, due to failure of the Seller’s own supplier to deliver or force majeure),it will inform the Customer without delay and, where applicable, specify a new estimated date of delivery. If the new delivery time is unacceptable to the Customer or the goods are also not available within the new delivery time or not available at all, either party will be entitled to rescind the contract in respect of the goods concerned; in this case the Seller will give the Customer a refund for any payment already made. Any statutory rights of the parties will remain unaffected.
