Terms and conditions

Scope and Parties

These General Terms and Conditions („T&C“), in the version applicable at the time the order is placed, govern all agreements entered into between J.M. Stricker KG („ETARO“) and the buyer („customer“). Any other or deviating terms and conditions will not be acknowledged unless accepted by ETARO in writing.

ETARO reserves the right to adapt and change the T&Cs. 

Entering into a contract

Our offers in the online shop are not binding. By placing an order in our online shop, the customer makes a binding offer to purchase the product.

The customer may select items from ETARO's range of products and add them to a virtual shopping bag by clicking “ad to cart” button. By clicking on the “Buy” button, the Customer submits a binding offer to enter into a purchase agreement for the goods ordered and accepts the T&Cs.

Before submitting the order the customer may change and review the data provided. After the order is submitted the customer will receive an automatically generated email by which ETARO confirms that the order has been electronically received and recorded. This confirmation email shall not, however, constitute an acceptance of the offer to enter into a purchase agreement.

The purchase agreement comes into force after shipping confirmation has been sent by email and the products ordered have been sent.

Any sale of ETARO’s merchandise to the customer will be restricted to quantities customary in retail trade. This provision shall apply to both the number of items ordered as part of one single order and to several orders placed within a short period of time, each relating to the same product and a quantity customary in retail trade.

Language

Contracts with customers are made exclusively in either German or English, depending on whether the customer places an order using the German- or English-language online shop site. If the customer places an order through our German-language website, only the German version of these terms and conditions shall apply. If the customer places an order through our English-language website, only the English version of these terms and conditions shall apply.

Storage of contract data

The order information will be stored electronically. The customer may print out the order confirmation in case a hardcopy is desired. In addition, if the customer has registered, she/he can view orders in her/his personal customer account.

Availability of Goods

All offers are valid as long as stocks last. Errors excepted.

If the goods ordered are not available, ETARO will notify the customer immediately by email. In this case an order confirmation will not be sent and ETARO is entitled to cancel the order. A purchase agreement does not come into force. In case goods ordered are only partially not available, available goods from the same order are not affected. In case goods ordered are only unavailable temporarily, ETARO will inform the customer accordingly. If a delay in shipment of more than two weeks after order confirmation was sent, the customer is entitled to cancel the order. If it turns out that the goods are not available for the foreseeable future after the purchase agreement comes into force, ETARO will inform the customer by email. ETARO as well as the customer are entitled to withdraw from the purchase agreement in this case.

In case the purchase agreement is withdrawn ETARO will immediately refund any payments already made by the customer.

Price, shipment and delivery, transfer of risk

All prices are in Euro and include the applicable statutory value added tax. Prices quoted at the time of the respective order shall apply.

Deliveries take place to all countries of the European Union (list of countries of delivery see Shipment and Delivery). The customer will be informed about shipping costs during the order process. Goods will be shipped after ETARO receives the full purchase price (including VAT and shipping costs).

Delivery time is generally 3-5 workdays. The customer will be informed about the delivery time during the order process. ETARO is responsible solely for the timely, proper handover of the goods to the shipping company and is not responsible for any delays caused by the carrier. Any shipping time ETARO might indicates is therefore not binding.  

If the customer is a consumer, the risk arising from accidental destruction, damage or loss of the goods passes to the customer at the time the goods are delivered to the customer or the customer is in default of acceptance. In all other cases, the risk is transferred when the goods are delivered to the customer by the carrier.               

More information see Shipment and Delivery.

In case payment via third party payment providers, as for example PayPal, general terms and conditions of this third party payment provider apply. ETARO reserves the right to refuse certain methods of payments in particular cases or to refer to different methods of payment. The customer may change the method of payment on her/his customer account anytime.

The purchase price (including VAT and shipping costs) is payable immediately with each payment methods and has to be settled before goods are shipped.
