Concluding a purchase contract

The purchase contract enters into force by a confirmation e-mail of the provider sent to the user's address specified in the order form.

Any change of the order after the conclusion of the purchase contract is a proposal to change the content of the purchase contract and is possible only by mutual agreement of the user and the provider, while the provider is not obliged to accept the proposal to change the content of the purchase contract.

The order expires by its rejection by the provider or by the expiration of 7 days from its confirmation by the user, if it is not confirmed by the provider within this period.

Withdrawal from the purchase agreement

The user has the right to withdraw from the contract without giving a reason on the basis of § 7 of Act no. 102/2014 Coll. on consumer protection in the sale of goods or provision of services under a distance or off-premises contract of the seller within 14 days of receipt of the goods or from the date of conclusion of a contract for the provision of electronic content not supplied on tangible media (eg e-books). According to § 7 par. 6 of Act no. 102/2014 Coll. the user does not have the right to withdraw from the contract if it is the subject of:

  • the sale of sound recordings, video recordings, sound recordings, books or computer software sold in protective packaging, if the consumer has unpacked that packaging;

The time limit for returning the goods shall be deemed to have been observed if the goods have been handed over for carriage no later than the last day of the time limit. The user is obliged to attach to the goods all documents related to the purchase of goods - especially the invoice and confirmation of receipt of goods from the carrier. The cost of transporting the goods from the user to the provider is borne by the user.

The goods must be delivered complete, undamaged, preferably in the original packaging and unused, otherwise the provider is not obliged to take over such goods and return the purchase price for the goods. The user is responsible for the reduction in the value of the goods, which arose as a result of such handling of the goods, which is beyond the treatment necessary to determine the properties and functionality of the goods.

All payments made by the user in connection with the conclusion of the contract will be sent to the account provided by the user within 14 days of withdrawal from the contract, but not before the goods in question are delivered to the provider or proven return to the provider. This does not apply to additional costs if the user has chosen a different delivery method than the cheapest standard delivery method offered by the provider.

In case of unauthorized withdrawal from the contract, the goods will be returned to the user at his expense.

Terms of payment

Transport costs are charged to the user separately according to the method of transport of goods to the place of delivery chosen by the user.

Terms of Delivery

The delivery period begins to run from the crediting of the purchase price together with the price of transport to the provider's account. The delivery time of the goods is determined by the time stated for each title and depends on the availability of the goods in stock.

The provider will ship the order containing several titles, at least one of which is not available in the central warehouse, only after all required titles have been completed. If the user wants to divide the order into several parts, the shipping price will be charged separately for each shipment.

In the event that the goods are unavailable despite the opposite information from the supplier, the provider will immediately notify the user of this situation and offer him the opportunity to split or cancel the order without having to pay the price for shipping.

The Provider undertakes to deliver the goods and this obligation is fulfilled by handing over the ordered goods to the user or an authorized person at the place of delivery or by handing it over to the first carrier for transport.

In the case of personal collection, the user will be informed about the possibility of collection by e-mail to the address specified in the order form. The order will be ready for collection within 30 calendar days.

The user is obliged to take over the goods at the agreed place and time in person, or to ensure their taking over. The user confirms the receipt of the goods in writing in the delivery note, which is also proof of payment for the goods in the case of cash on delivery.
