Terms of service

General Terms and Conditions
 
1. Scope
 
These General Terms and Conditions apply to all purchase orders placed by customers at the online shop www.marinsel.ch, operated by Marinsel GmbH, Feldbergstrasse 10, 4057 Basel, Switzerland. The following General Terms and Conditions shall apply exclusively, and only in such form as they are valid at the time of the customer’s placing of the order. The tender of delivery applies in Switzerland and abroad. Before sending a completed order form, our customers are asked to accept the General Terms and Conditions by clicking the field “I accept the General Terms and Conditions”. Only then an order becomes legally effective.
 
2. Conclusion of contract
 
Purchase orders to Marinsel GmbH can be placed by telephone or internet. By placing the order and accepting the General Terms and Conditions, the customer makes a legally binding purchase offer. The customer shall always receive a confirmation after placing an order.
 
As soon as an order has been placed via the web shop, an order confirmation is sent automatically. This confirmation is non-binding, and does not mean that the ordered merchandise is in stock at the time of the order. Marinsel GmbH can only accept orders if the ordered merchandise is available.
 
Once placed, an order cannot be cancelled by the customer any more. A contract closure only comes into effect with the delivery of the merchandise. 
 
If the merchandise is no longer available from the supplier, Marinsel GmbH has the right not to execute an order and to refund any payments already effectuated by the customer.
 
3. Delivery
 
Delivery and packaging are free of charge for regular orders in Switzerland with an invoiced value of 250 SFR or over. The costs for deliveries up to 250 SFR, for deliveries abroad and express deliveries will be fully charged at the expense of the customer. If the customer ruturns the good/s, the shipping costs to the customer will be charged afterwards and the amount will subtracted from the refund.
 
All deliveries are sent as packages, and carried out by the Swiss postal service. This means every delivery has a tracking number that allows our customer to monitor the delivery at all times. Some countries do not support the Swiss postal service’s tracking system. Therefore, delivery monitoring cannot be offered for those countries. You can find a list of countries on: http://www.post.ch/post-startseite/post-privatkunden/post-versenden/post-versenden-track-and-trace/spi-laender-mit-t-t-stand.pdf

All prices are listed in Swiss Francs, Euros and US Dollars, including statutory value-added tax (VAT) and excluding delivery costs. VAT is deducted for orders from abroad. Any statutory VAT applicable in a given country, and any customs duties, are payable by the customer and will be charged by the competent customs authorities.
