Entering into an agreement
The agreement is binding on both parties when the buyer's order is received by the seller. However, one party is not bound by the agreement if there have been typing or typing errors in the offer from the seller in the ordering solution in the online store or in the buyer's order, and the other party realized or should have realized that such an error existed.
You will receive an order confirmation by e-mail immediately after the purchase has been completed. It is recommended that the buyer checks that the order confirmation matches the order in terms of quantity, item type, price, etc. If there is no correspondence between the order and the order confirmation, the buyer should contact the seller as soon as possible.
The seller can demand payment for the item from the time it is sent from the seller to the buyer. If the buyer uses a credit card or debit card when paying, the seller can reserve the purchase price on the card when ordering.
A credit card is a payment card where the settlement for the purchase takes place afterwards by the lender (credit card company) sending the cardholder an invoice with a demand for payment. A debit card is a payment card linked to a deposit account. Use of the card means that the user's account is debited and the amount is transferred to the payee's account.
When paying by credit card, the law on credit purchases etc. come into use.
Delivery of the item from the seller to the buyer takes place in the manner, at the place and at the time specified in the ordering solution in the online store. If the delivery time is not stated in the order solution or e-mail that accompanies the order confirmation, the seller must deliver the item to the buyer within a reasonable time and no later than 30 days after the order from the customer. If the seller is to ensure that the goods are sent to the buyer, he is obliged to have the goods transported to the destination in a suitable manner and on normal terms for such transport. The place of destination is with the buyer unless otherwise agreed between the parties.
The risk of the item
The risk for the item passes to the buyer when the thing is taken over by the buyer in accordance with the agreement. If the delivery time has come and the buyer fails to take over an item that is made available to him or her under the agreement, the buyer still has the risk of loss or damage due to properties of the item itself.
Right of withdrawal
The buyer may regret the purchase of the item in accordance with the provisions of the Right of Withdrawal Act. Right of withdrawal means that the buyer can return the item to the seller without reason, even if there is no defect in it and even if it has not been delivered. The buyer must notify the seller of the use of the right of withdrawal within 14 days after the item, the prescribed information about the right of withdrawal and the right of withdrawal form has been received.
If the buyer receives the cancellation form and the necessary information at a later date than when the item is delivered, the cancellation period begins to run from the day the buyer receives the right of withdrawal form and the information. If the buyer has not received sufficient information or a right of withdrawal form, the withdrawal period will still expire 3 months after the item has been received. If the buyer has not received information about the right of withdrawal at all, the deadline will be 1 year.
The notification from the buyer to the seller about the use of the right of withdrawal should, for evidentiary reasons, be in writing (right of withdrawal form, e-mail, fax or letter), and it must contain information on how the buyer will return the item to the seller.
The buyer shall, without undue delay, and no later than 14 days from notification after the right of withdrawal was granted, send the goods back, or hand them over to the seller if the seller has not offered to pick up the goods.
If the buyer has expressly chosen a different type of delivery than the standard delivery offered by the seller, the seller shall nevertheless not pay the additional costs this entailed.
Refunds shall be made without undue delay, and no later than 14 days from when the seller was notified of the buyer's decision to exercise the right of withdrawal. Unless otherwise expressly agreed with the buyer, the refund shall be made using the same means of payment as the buyer used. The buyer shall not pay any fee as a result of the refund.
The seller can withhold the refund until the goods have been received, or until the buyer has submitted documentation that the goods have been returned. This does not apply when the seller has offered to pick up the goods.
The buyer must bear the cost of returning the goods if the right of withdrawal is used.
The buyer can examine the product before he or she regrets the purchase. It must still be possible to return the item to the seller in approximately the same condition and quantity as it was in when the buyer received it. The seller may demand that the consumer compensate for the reduction in value as a result of the buyer's handling of the goods which has not been necessary to determine the nature, properties and function of the goods.
The buyer should send the item back to the seller in the original packaging if possible. The buyer can not regret the purchase of goods that deteriorate rapidly, goods that for reasons of health or hygiene are not suitable for return, or of audio and video recordings (including CDs, DVDs) or computer programs where the seal is broken.

Complaints must still be made no later than two years after the buyer took over the item. If the item or parts of it are intended to last significantly longer, the complaint period is five years. In the event of a delay, claims must be made to the seller within a reasonable time after the delivery time has come and the item has not been delivered. If the item is paid for with a credit card, the buyer can also choose to advertise and send claims directly to the credit provider (the credit card company). The message to the seller or creditor should be in writing (email, fax or letter).
Buyer's rights in case of delay

If the difficulties disappear within a reasonable time, the consumer can demand fulfillment.
Lifting: The buyer may terminate the agreement with the seller if the delay is significant or if the seller does not deliver the goods within the additional deadline for fulfillment set by the buyer.

The buyer's consent must be voluntary and given by active action, for example by ticking.
