  • Applicability

    These terms and conditions shall apply to all contracts of sale made by and between the Seller and a customer. Contracts can be formed for instance by placing an order for products on the Seller’s website www.vaisanendesign.com, by email, by phone, in writing or otherwise. By placing an order for products a customer agrees that the sale shall be solely and exclusively governed by these terms.

  • Formation of a contract

    A contract is formed between the Seller and a customer when the Seller has acknowledged a purchase order a customer has placed on Seller’s website or otherwise. The Seller has a right to not acknowledge an order placed by a customer. All order acknowledgements, invoices or receipts shall be provided in electronic form only (e.g. email). A customer placing an order with the Seller must be at least 18 years old.

    Regardless if the Seller has acknowledged a purchase order or not, the Seller has a right to cancel an order made by a customer if (1) the ordered products are not available for any reason; (2) the product(s) cannot be delivered to the address provided by the customer or the delivery would be unreasonably expensive, difficult or restricted by local import laws; (3) the Seller has reason to believe that the order for products was placed by a minor (under 18 years old); or (4) the customer has not provided accurate or sufficient contact and other details for processing the order and payment of products. If a customer has paid for the products prior the Seller’s cancellation, the payment shall be returned to the customer.

If local laws require payment of import customs or duties for importing the products to customer’s address, these are payable by the customer in accordance with applicable laws.

The Seller is not liable for a delay caused by reason outside the Seller’s control (force majeure).

If the package was damaged during the delivery, the customer must also notify the company responsible of the delivery. When notifying of a defect, the customer must also show a receipt of the purchased product.
