The implementation of purchases through the online SHOP corresponding to the URL (further named as: the SITE) entails full acceptance on your part of the terms referred to herein.
The postal address and email addresses for the SHOP staff are maintained on Contacts page on the SITE along with office telephone number.
Email delivery is not guaranteed: e.g. spam filtering tools can delete valid messages. Therefore, please consider telephone or letter if an important email message is not answered promptly.
A necessary prerequisite of the commencement of a transaction between us is the notification on your part of some of your personal data. During the ordering procedure you will be requested to give your full name, your permanent address, the address at which you want the products being sold to be sent, the number of your fixed telephone (or any other telephone you want, that will be used to enhance the level of services provided to you), your e-mail address and, in the case you have chosen an invoice request, your tax identification number and company's name.
The SHOP and the SELLER in faithful conformity with the principles of personal data protection which are provided for by Polish and European laws and by the relevant international conventions shall not proceed to any unfair use nor to any use not previously authorised by you. The SHOP and the SELLER will in no way disclose, publish, sell or exchange your personal data and information entrusted by you with us. Exceptionally, your personal data may be published by the SHOP always in conformity with the procedure provided for by law when this is imposed by a Public Authority, a Court, etc.
The users may, at any moment whatsoever, and as long as there is a specific reason, proceed to the change in the personal data that has been communicated by them to the SHOP or even cancel any.
Modes of Payment
The SHOP allows the following modes of payment :
1. On-Line Payments by all major credit cards
2. Payments using bank transfers. Data to make transfers will be sent by e-mail to the BUYER after the ending of order. Ordering an international transfer the BUYER must choose an 'OUR' option as option to cover costs, which means that all costs, notably fees and commissions of the recipient's bank and the BUYER's bank, are incurred by the orderer of the transaction.
3. COD - Cash on delivery (only deliveries in Poland)
On-line payment security
PayPal accepts the following cards: Visa, MasterCard/EuroCard (except Maestro), American Express as well as Visa Electron cards issued by some banks (no specific rule in this case as it is up to a bank whether a Visa Electron card can be accepted for online payments).
To make payments by PayPal, the BUYER can use traditional cards or virtual cards (designed specifically for online transactions).
Transaction data is sent through encrypted connections directly to the acquirer. It is thus impossible for any unauthorised person to access the data. The BUYER's data is not viewable by the PayPal staff and the personnel of the SHOP where you buy goods. The acquirer sends only confirmation that a declared payment can be effected. The Internet service receives such information via Dotpay.
Similarly to card payments at stores or restaurants, the BUYER's card is authorised immediately in the case of online transactions. The PayPal staff verify each transaction to ensure maximum security to the BUYER and his money. Unlike during ‘brick and mortar’ shopping, the BUYER cannot sign a receipt or enter his PIN for online transactions.
The total time from placing an order to receipt depends upon the availability of the ordered item. Most items are available and are shipped within three working days.
On the SITE there is an estimated processing time on every items page. That time claims how long it will take the SHOP to fill the order - from the moment the BUYER submits an order to the shipping out. To estimate the time the BUYER receives a package add processing time and delivery time by post to address of the BUYERS. The delivery time for each country may vary. Receipt of order = processing time + delivery time
Order completion times and delivery times include working days only.
The SHOP allows the following modes of dispatch of the products that have been ordered by the BUYER to the place of dispatch that has been indicated by the BUYER at the relevant cost, as such cost is shown on the relevant pages of the SHOP:
1. Via the Post
2. Via courier service – only on special request
The time of delivery depends on the mode of delivery to be chosen by you. Shipments will be effected on a daily basis except for Saturdays, Sundays or holidays. The order form will mention the expected date of delivery of the items ordered by you. In special cases, especially in orders connected with foreign countries, there may be a delay by reason of the supplier's inability to provide us with the products at the expected times. In such cases a reminder will be sent to the supplier and the client will be kept advised. The SHOP shall bear no liability in the event of failure to deliver by reason of force majeure (natural disasters, war, political upheaval, etc.).
The BUYER can request to cancel his order by mail within 24 hours of the order being placed. Any request received after that we will attempt to change but regret in most cases order packing and dispatch will already have taken place.
The BUYER can return the bought items without any reason within 14 days after the receipt of his order. The returned item must be shipped to the SELLER on client’s expense, except if the product does not conform to the description of said product (the client is responsible for any damage done during the shipping of the returned goods). Returns can only be made once authorized by Customer Services.
In order to process your returns as quickly as possible, all returns must include:
A copy of your delivery note or your order number
Return authorization (obtainable from Customer Services)
Reason for return (if applicable)
Please ensure that items are packed securely to prevent any damage in transit. We also suggest sending via registered or insured post so the parcel can be traced.
The SELLER will send back the value of the returned item to BUYERS credit card or account, respectively to the payment method. In case of international money transfers we will send money with BEN option, what means that all costs, notably fees and commissions of the recipient's bank and BUYER's bank are incurred by the transaction beneficiary.
Passage of risk and warranties
If the BUYER picks up the goods, then the risk of accidental loss or accidental damage to the goods shall pass from the SELLER to the BUYER at the time when the goods are transferred to the BUYER. If BUYER ships the goods to the BUYER the risk shall pass to the BUYER which is a merchant as soon as the goods are handed over to the carrier. If the BUYER is a consumer the risk shall pass as soon as the carrier has delivered the goods to the BUYER.
The warranty period shall begin at the time when the goods are delivered. The statutory warranty provisions shall apply.
Provided that the BUYER is a consumer, the periods of limitation for statutory claims for defects shall be two years.
If the BUYER is a merchant the limitation period for warranty claims is one year.
The SELLER is authorised to choose between curing the defect and delivering a defect-free good as subsequent performance. Obvious defects in the products or the performance rendered by the SELLER must be notified in writing immediately, at the latest within fourteen days after receipt of the goods. If such defects are not notified in time, the goods are deemed to have been approved and accepted, with all inherent warranty rights expiring.
