Section 2: Conclusion of the contract

2.1: The product descriptions in the online shop serve as an invitation to submit a purchase offer. By clicking the button [buy now] you are making a binding offer to purchase the goods. Our products are sold only for private use in quantities that are normal for domestic households.

2.2: Displaying the products in the online shop is not a legally binding offer; it is rather a non-binding online catalogue. By clicking on the ‘buy now’ button you are making a binding order for the goods in your shopping basket. Confirmation of receipt of your order and the acceptance of that order is made by automated email directly after you make your order. Please note that this e-mail is only an acknowledgement of receipt of your order and the contract to purchase these items is not complete until we send you another email confirming acceptance of your order.

2.3: Should our confirmation of the order contain writing or printing errors, or should the setting of our prices be affected by technical errors in communication, we shall be entitled to appeal, although we must prove our error to you in such cases. Any payments already made will be refunded to you without delay.

2.4: The language of the contract, the order and the business transaction is English.

5.4: Should we still be unsuccessful in delivering the goods despite making three delivery attempts we have the right to withdraw from the contract. Any payments you have made will be refunded to you without delay.

5.5: We have the right to withdraw from the contract if the ordered product is not available because we have not received the product from our supplier at no fault of our own. In such cases we will inform you without undue delay and, where appropriate, suggest delivery of a comparable product.

Only the Terms and Conditions of Fine Trade GmbH, which you can read here, are valid for your purchase.

Effects of cancellation

If you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (exept for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least ex-pensive type of standard delivery offered by us). We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.
 
We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than -

(a) 14 days after the day we receive back from you and goods supplied, or

(b) (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have returned the goods, or

(c) if there were no goods supplied, 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel this contract.


We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.


You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation from this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14days has expired.

Your are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

End of right to cancel


8.2: Please avoid damaging and soiling. Please return the goods to us in their original packaging if possible, with all accessories and packaging components. If necessary please use an additional layer of protective outer packaging. If you no longer have the original packaging material, please ensure that you pack the goods in a way that offers sufficient protection from transport damage so that you avoid incurring claims for damages due to damage resulting from inadequate packaging.

 

8.3: Please note that the arrangements noted in section 8.2 are not a prerequisite for the effective exercising of the right of cancellation.

 

 

Section 9: Transport damage

9.1: If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, please register a complaint about such defects with the delivery agent immediately, and get into contact with us as soon as possible. Contact us by E-mail or by contact form.

9.2: Neglecting to register a complaint with the delivery agent or failing to get into contact with us has no effect on your statutory guarantee rights. But that would help us with asserting our own claims against the delivery company and/or transportation insurance.

 

 

Section 10: Risk-bearing during delivery

When the goods are being delivered, the risk for loss of or damage to the goods only transfers to the consumer when the goods are delivered to the consumer or to a third party named by them, not including the delivery agent. However, if the consumer concludes a contract of carriage themselves without selecting one of the delivery options suggested by us, the risk is transferred to the consumer when the goods are handed over to the delivery agent.

 

 

Section 11: Guarantee

11.1: The guarantee is limited to the statutory period of 24 months from the date the consumer receives the goods, or the date the service was ordered. Where a justifiable complaint has been lodged about a defect, a free replacement will be provided or the defect will be rectified, for which an appropriate period of time must be allowed. If an exchange or rectification is ruled out (not possible, too expensive, unreasonable, deadline delay), the customer has the right to a reduction in price or, if the defect is not insubstantial, to cancel the contract (revocation). If possible, defects are to be reported upon delivery or upon detection. If the purchase is a business transaction for the customer (B2B), they must examine the goods within 2 weeks of receipt at the latest and report any defects to us without delay.

Our company is only liable for damages in cases of intent and gross negligence. This is not valid in cases of personal injury and/or consumer business. Insofar as it is not a matter of consumer business, the injured party must prove the existence of cases of slight and gross negligence. The possibility of compensation to the customer for consequential damages (arising from defects), other damage to property, pecuniary losses and damages to third parties, insofar as it is not a matter of consumer business, is excluded. Our company, as the operator of the online shop named in the legal notice, renders the services offered with utmost care, however, we are not liable for services provided or purchased by third parties.

Guarantee claims should be made to the guarantor (the manufacturer/sometimes also the retailer if that is also the manufacturer) and are effected according to their provisions. Claims on the guarantee do not affect the statutory guarantee.

11.2: Rechargeable batteries are consumer goods that come with a limited guarantee. Guarantee claims cannot be made for the loss of performance of rechargeable batteries that is due to normal wear and tear or due to improper use, handling or storing. Guarantee claims cannot be made against the loss of performance of rechargeable batteries after 12 months.

 

 

Section 12: Liability

We are not liable for slightly negligent breaches of duty insofar as these are not related to material contractual obligations, damages arising from injury to life, body and health, or to guarantees, or if they affect claims arising from the product liability law. The same is valid for breaches of duty on the part of our vicarious agents.

 

 

Section 13: Ineffective clauses

Should a provision in these General Terms and Conditions be invalid, the rest of the contract remains valid. The appropriate statutory regulations shall be in force to replace the ineffective provision.

 

 

Section 14: Place of jurisdiction and applicable law

14.1: The legal places of jurisdiction are valid. Therefore the competent court is that of the administrative district of the consumer’s home, usual place of residence or place of employment.

14.2: These Terms and Conditions and the contracts entered into under these Terms and Conditions are subject to Austrian material law. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded.

 

 

Section 15: Place of fulfilment

The place of fulfilment for all transactions is the company headquarters.
