Allgemeine Bedingungen für den Armin Strom Webshop

 

Scope

The website www.arminstrom.com is owned and operated by Armin Strom AG, Boezingerstreet 46, CH-2502 Bienne (Switzerland). The following General Terms and Conditions („GTC“) for online orders in Switzerland apply between the customer („Customer“, or „you“) and the supplier, Armin Strom AG, Boezingerstreet 46, CH-2502 Bienne (Switzerland) („we“ or „us“), in the current version at the time each order is placed.

We shall be entitled to supplement or amend the GTC at any time at our own discretion.

Deviating, additional or conflicting customer conditions will not be recognized unless we have expressly agreed in writing to their validity.

Terms of use

Proper registration is required for purchases in our Webshop. In this regard as a customer, you are responsible for providing truthful and complete information.

We are not obligated to accept the registration or orders of a registered customer. Likewise, we are not obligated to make our services permanently available. Orders that have already been confirmed remain unaffected by this.

Subject matter of the contract, attributes of the product

The subject matter of the contract is the products specified in your order and listed in your order confirmation at the retail prices listed in the webshop. Errors and omissions are reserved, particularly those affecting the availability of goods.

The attributes of the ordered products are based on the product descriptions in the webshop. Images of products on the website may be inaccurate under certain circumstances. In particular, colors may differ for technical reasons. Images are used for illustrative reference only and can differ from the product. Technical data, weight, dimensions and performance specifications are specified as precisely as possible, but may have the usual deviations. The properties described here do not constitute defects in the products delivered to you.

The presentation of products on the website is a non-binding online catalog and not a legally binding offer.

Conclusion of contract

Any order validated by the Customer on the Webshop constitutes a binding offer to conclude a purchase agreement with Armin Strom for the goods concerned.

The purchase agreement comes into existence when Armin Strom accepts your order, by providing confirmation through the webshop or by email or other written communication, or by sending the goods ordered.

The information on the Website and Webshop concerning goods and their prices is subject to change without notice. The Customer will be charged the price displayed on this Website and/or Webshop at the time the order is validated.

If the product that is indicated in your order is only temporarily unavailable, then we will immediately inform you of this in the order confirmation. If there is a delivery delay of more than 16 weeks after we have sent the shipping confirmation we will inform you of this. In the case of a subsequent impossibility to deliver, we will reimburse you for any payments that were already made.

Prices and payments

The prices quoted at the time of the order shall apply to orders in our webshop. The prices quoted are retail prices in Swiss francs (CHF) in which the applicable value-added tax is included if the product is delivered to an address in Switzerland.

Important note: Deliveries to countries other than Switzerland may imply customs duties, taxes and other costs (which may depend on many factors including, without limitation, the value, type of goods purchased, administrative costs and destination of the shipment) and which are not taken into account in any of the prices indicated on the website and/or webshop. The Customer must bear any custom duties and other taxes applicable in the country of delivery, as well as any other costs linked to delivery of the purchased goods outside of Switzerland. By accepting these General Terms and Conditions, the Customer agrees to pay any customs duties, taxes or other costs that may apply in relation to the delivery in another country than Switzerland, and to indemnify and hold harmless Armin Strom for the same.

The purchase price for the goods ordered becomes due immediately upon validation of the order by the Customer. Payment may be done exclusively by any of the payment means accepted by the webshop at the time of validating the order. If the order is finally not accepted (due, for instance, to issues affecting stock or any other reason which Armin Strom may in its reasonable discretion determine), any part of the purchase price already paid shall be reimbursed to the Customer on the account used by the Customer to make the original payment.

Delivery and retention of title

Unless otherwise agreed, delivery will be sent to the address provided by the customer.

Deliveries are shipped by Swiss Post and international courier services. We will inform you about the expected delivery time before shipping.

The delivery times provided are only intended as a point of reference and are therefore considered only agreed as being approximate. Disruptions that are not caused by us or any of the companies that we have contracted (such as logistics companies for performance of the contract) as well as force majeure may further delay the delivery. We will inform you of these methods of delivery disruptions as soon as we become aware of them.

The delivered goods remain the property of Armin Strom AG until full payment has been made.

If goods are delivered with obvious damage from transport, then we ask you to immediately file a complaint with the delivery agent and to contact us as soon as possible.
