E-SHOP BUSINESS TERMS AND CONDITIONS

I. GENERAL 

These E-shop business terms and conditions (the “Conditions”) govern the legal relationship originating from purchase contracts between Astra Gold, s.r.o. with registered office at Mariánská 604/24 , Česká Lípa 470 01, Czech Republic, company ID No.: 27321100, registered in the Commercial Register maintained by the Ústí nad Labem Regional Court, Section B, File No. 1239 (the “Seller”) and the Buyer (which includes both consumers and wholesale customers).All contractual relationships are entered into pursuant to Czech law. If the Buyer is a consumer (i.e. any individual who,outside of his or her business activities or separate course of business, enters into a contract or has dealings with the entrepreneur), then the relations not specifically governed by these Conditions are governed by both the Civil Code (Act No. 89/2012 Coll.) and by the Consumer Protection Act (Act No. 634/1992 Coll.). If the Buyer is not a consumer, then the legal relationship based on a contract outside of these Conditions is governed by the Civil Code (Act No. 89/2012 Coll.).
.

II. ENTERING INTO A PURCHASE CONTRACT 

1. If the Buyer is a consumer, the proposal of the purchase contract (offer) is implemented by displaying the offered products on the Seller’s E-shop website, in  which the purchase contract becomes valid upon submission of order by the Buyer/consumer and its receipt by the Seller. The Seller will then without delay  confirm to the Buyer the receipt of the order through notification to a designated e-mail address; this notification, however, has no effect on the contract.  Received orders may be changed only with the express consent of both Parties. 

2. We recommend that the Buyer takes the opportunity to conduct a thorough review of the entire order prior to submitting the order to the Seller. The Buyer will then submit the order by clicking on “Confirm order”.

3.  If the Buyer is not a consumer, then the proposal of the purchase contract is created when the Buyer submits the product order, and the purchase contract is valid upon the moment of delivery of the binding order confirmation and proforma invoice by the Seller to the Buyer, and by payment of deposit on company's account. 

4. By the procedural process described above leading to the completion of the purchase contract, the Buyer confirms that he or she is familiar with the Conditions and agrees to them. The E-shop website presents an explicit option of reviewing the Conditions prior to submitting the order, and we recommend all Buyers to use this opportunity and read through them in detail.

5. The illustrations, weights and dimensions of the products (goods) listed in the catalogue are purely informative.

6. Listed prices do not include VAT, unless stated otherwise.

.

III. DELIVERY TIME, MANNER OF DELIVERY, FAILURE TO COLLECT GOODS

1. Delivery time is established by the Seller in the order confirmation. Delivery is considered complete on the day of the shipment of the order, the day the goods leave the inventory of the Seller, or on the day the goods are ready for collection by the Buyer. On this day, the Seller is then authorised to issue an invoice. The Seller has the right to partial deliveries of goods. Delivery time may be extended in the event of any unexpected issues not caused by the Seller, such as unexpected events of force majeure, strikes, and other obstacles beyond the Seller’s control. The same is true for instances in which these issues may arise with the Seller’s suppliers. In such cases, financial claims for delays do not apply. Damage caused due to delayed delivery of goods on the part of the Seller may be claimed only up to the amount of the value of the delayed items and under chosen variant of incoterms. 

2. The manner of shipment of products is established in the order. Unless stipulated otherwise in writing, the Buyer shall pay the shipping costs, and the amount will be established in the order. The Buyer takes over risks of damage incurred to goods no later than at the time of shipment (submission of goods to the shipment facility).

3. The Parties have agreed that should the Buyer fail to collect the purchased items within 30 days of the date listed in the purchase contract or of the date of the Seller’s purchase request in writing, by telephone, or by fax (“uncollected goods”), the Seller has the right to withdraw from the contract and to sell these goods to a different party. In this case, the Buyer is not entitled to claim damages. A written notice of withdrawal from the contract must be submitted to the other Party. The Seller has the right to bill the Buyer for generalised claims for damages upon withdrawal from the contract on the side of the Seller for 100 % of the deposit received in relation to the price of the uncollected goods.

4. If the uncollected goods are subsequently collected and the Seller has not yet exercised its right to withdraw from the contract according to the previous paragraph, the Seller has the right to demand a contractual fine from the Buyer in the amount of 1 % of the value of these goods for each day of the delay beyond the first 30 days of delay.

5. Contractual fines are due on the day of the receipt of the invoice and can be used toward the received deposit and/or toward other compensation from the Buyer.

IV. COMPENSATION – PAYMENT FOR GOODS

1)  Purchases through the E-shop require a 100 % deposit in the amount of the order. If the required deposit is not paid within 14 days of the issuance of the order, the respective order is automatically cancelled. The contracted delivery time begins when the entire amount of the purchase price is paid to the account of the Seller listed in the order. Should the Buyer fail to pay the invoice in a timely manner, the Seller has the right to charge interest of 0.1 % of the amount owed for each day of the delay. This does not affect any possible claims for damages.
