§ 2 Contract Closure
2.1 contract closure regarding standard products
The presentation of our merchandise invites you to submit a purchase offer in the form of an order. Clicking the "Send order" button in the last stage of the ordering process issues a binding order for the products you have placed in the shopping bag. As soon as your order has been received by us, you will receive an automatically generated order confirmation by email. This confirmation does not yet represent a binding purchase contract. The purchase contact only comes into effect with the delivery of the merchandise.

§ 3 Accepting the Order
An order that is binding for you comes into effect when all of the data necessary to complete the contract has been entered, you have confirmed acceptance of these terms and conditions and you have clicked the "Send order" button.

10.2 Returns related to Personalized Products
Specific stipulations apply for personalized products, because these are exclusively created for you. We, therefore, do not accept returns, except there is a product fault.
If your personalized product is faulty please contact our customer service via phone (+44) 02 - 033 265 481 or via E-Mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
§ 11 Guarantee
Your legal guarantee claim period is 2 years and starts with receipt of the merchandise. During this time, we will eliminate all faults that fall under the legal guarantee obligation. You can demand either the elimination of the fault, or the delivery of a fault-free item, although the right to choose may be limited by the existence of legal prerequisites. If it is not possible to provide a replacement, you may choose to withdraw from the sales contract or to accept a discount. By the way, the legal claim for damages only applies to the replacement of damages not compensation/replacement for any failed attempts on your part to repair item. In the event of a fault occurring within 6 months of delivery, it is probable that the goods were already faulty when purchased. If the fault shows more than 6 months after delivery, the purchaser is responsible for proving that the fault was already inherent when the purchased object was delivered.
All personal data is fundamentally treated in the strictest of confidence. Your personal data is used to enable the optimum handling of the order, to deliver the merchandise, and to provide services and to handle payments. For this purpose, we pass your data on to authorised service providers and, if necessary, to associated companies.
For the purpose of payment processing the necessary data is stored both on our server and on the servers of the companies we have authorized to handle payment processing.
