Article 2
Order processing

  1. The E-Shop contains a list of items – goods intended for sale, including a description of their characteristics. The presentation of the goods listed in the E-Shop is informative and does not constitute a proposal of the Seller for the conclusion of a contract within the meaning of Section 1732 (2) of the Civil Code. The Buyer shall send an order for the requested goods within the E-Shop. The Seller shall then send the Buyer additional information about the order by email, in particular the expected delivery date of the goods, information about the transport options for the goods, including the price of transport and packaging, and payment information.

  2. The Seller is entitled to verify the order in case of any doubt as to the authenticity and seriousness of the order. The Seller may reject an unverified order. The Seller reserves the right to refuse an order in whole or at least in part if the Buyer orders a non-standard quantity of goods.

Conclusion of the purchase contract, delivery conditions, transfer of risk of damage

Terms of payment and transfer of title

If the Buyer is obliged to pay the purchase price by cashless payment before delivery of the goods by transfer to the Seller’s bank account, title to the goods shall pass to the Buyer upon handover of the goods for transport. In this case, the Seller shall hand over the goods for transport only after the purchase price has been paid.

The Seller’s entitlement to compensation for damage due to the Buyer’s delay shall not be affected by the application of interest on late payment and contractual penalty under this Article.
