1. General terms

The general terms and conditions apply to the sale and delivery of goods or the services provided by our company. Different conditions of the buyer may only apply if we have agreed to them in writing.

By placing the order, the buyer agrees to these terms and conditions and understands that they bind him. The order of the legally competent customers (those 18 years of age) constitutes an offer to enter a purchase contract. The automated confirmation of the receipt of the order within the meaning of § 10 para 2 ECG (Austrian E-commerce law) is in itself not an acceptance of the offer. The purchase contract is only concluded when we deliver the ordered goods, by sending a second email confirming the order or by any acceptance of the customer's offers. All offers on our website are subject to change, without obligation and only available while supplies last.

2. Ordering, Order correction, ordering cancellation

You can view the content of the cart at any time by clicking [To checkout]. The products can be removed from your cart at any time by clicking the [Remove] button. If you want to buy the products in your cart, click the button [To checkout]. Please then enter your data. If that is your first order, your data will be stored.

After entering your data and selection of the type of payment and delivery, we will take you through the [Next] button to your order overview where you can check your entries once again.

3. Contract Language

The contract terms, all other information and customer service is offered in the language chosen in the webshop.

4. Prices

The prices at the time of the order are including VAT and exclude shipping costs. They are displayed prior to sending the order in the basket and in the checkout and thereafter in a contract confirmation, sent to the customer.

For sales to businesses with a VAT number, no VAT is charged when the delivery address is located outside of Austria. It is the companies responsibility to pay VAT in their home country. Austrian companies are charged 20% Austrian VAT because the goods will be shipped from our warehouse in Austria.

For sales to Swiss customers (private or company) we invoice 8% Swiss VAT (already included in the prices). We handle customs processing and pay customs duties (Delivered Duty Paid - DDP)

For sales to customers outside the EU/Switzerland NO VAT is charged, but these customers have to pay the national import duties and import taxes (You can find more information at your tax office) and possibly pay expenses invoiced by the transport company.

Prices are displayed by default in Euro (EUR). As an optional service, we offer to display the prices in other currencies (e.g. CHF, SEK, PLN). Fees can be included in the exchange rates between EUR and the other currency. We don’t guarantee for the accuracy of the exchange rates at a given time.

Credit card payments are processed in the chosen shop currency. Cards issued outside the Euro-zone: The card issuer may bill fees for using the card abroad (e.g. 1%). We have no influence on such fees.

12. Guarantee, liability, warranty

The warranty is based on the statutory provisions. It is limited to the statutory period of 24 months from the date of reception of the goods by the buyer or, in the case of services, from the date of completion of the service. In the case of justified complaints about defects, either free replacement or improvement shall be carried out, for which a reasonable period of time must be granted. If an replacement or improvement is not considered (not possible, too much effort, unreasonable, delay etc.), then the buyer is entitled to a price reduction or, if the defect is not insignificant, cancellation of the contract (rescission).

Any defects on the goods are to be reported as soon as possible upon delivery or when they become visible. However, failing to make such notification at the time of delivery or after a consumer's inspection does not affect the warranty. If the purchase is a commercial transaction (B2B), the customer must notify us if any defect or damage is found within 2 weeks after receipt of the goods.

Our company is only liable for damages caused by intent and gross negligence. This does not apply to personal injury or consumer business. The existence of slight or gross negligence must be proven by the injured party, unless it is a consumer transaction. Compensation of (defect) consequential damages, as well as other material damages, financial losses and damages of third parties against the customer, as far as it is not a consumer business, is excluded. Our company, as the operator of the web shop named in the imprint, provides the services with the greatest care, but is not liable for the services provided by third parties or purchased from third parties.
The guarantee must be lodged with the guarantor (manufacturer/sometimes with the seller, if the latter is the manufacturer) and is given in accordance with its regulations. Please refer to the contract confirmation for any warranty conditions. The use of the guarantee does not limit the legal warranty.

When shipping the goods to consumer businesses, the responsibility for loss of or damage to the goods shall not pass to the consumer until the goods are delivered (to the consumer or to a designated third party). If, however, the consumer has concluded the contract of delivery himself, without taking into consideration the options proposed by us, the responsibility passes to the carrier upon delivery of the goods.

 

13. Applicable law, place of jurisdiction

The contracting parties agree on the application of Austrian law. If the consumer lives, has residency or is employed in the country, it may be justified to bring an action against him only in the jurisdiction of the court of the country of residence, ordinary residence or place of employment; this does not apply to disputes that have already occurred. The UN Sales Convention and all the provision relating to the UN Sales Conventions are expressly excluded.

For contracts with businesses, our registered office is the place of jurisdiction.

14. Place of performance for businesses customers

The place of performance for all services under the contract is our registered office.

15. Copyright

All news, graphics and the design of our website serve exclusively for informative purposes to our customers and are protected by copyright. Our product images and texts cannot not be used online (e.g., in other webshops/resale of products) or offline (e.g., in product catalogues) - unless we agree to their use in writing in particular cases.

20. Miscellaneous

Claims for compensation within the meaning of the Product Liability Act are excluded, unless the claimant proves that the error was caused in our area of responsibility and by gross negligence. The contractual partner waives the possibility of offsetting. However, this does not apply to consumers. We recommend that declarations, notifications, etc. directed to us -with the exception of notifications of defects- are addressed in writing.
