3.2 The total price is inclusive of VAT and all statutory charges unless we specify otherwise.
3.3 Payment of the Total Price will be required from you after the conclusion of the Contract and before the Goods are dispatched. You must therefore pay the Total Price before We send the Goods to You. You may pay the Total Price in CZK, EUR or USD as follows: (a) By bank transfer. We will send you the information for making the payment within the Order confirmation or within the e-mail communication. In the case of payment by bank transfer, the Total Price is payable within 14 days from the date of sending the payment information;

We will require an advance payment in particular in cases where the Goods are to be modified according to your requirements (e.g. a specific design, specific labelling for the Goods, etc.). We will only modify the Goods as required after payment of the deposit. If you subsequently decide that you do not want the Goods and do not take possession of them, even though we invite you to take possession, we shall be entitled to retain the deposit in full.
3.7 In the event that you are in default in the payment of any amount, we shall be entitled to claim interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 0.05% of the amount due for each day of delay. We shall also be entitled to suspend delivery of any Goods until the amount due has been paid. All agreed dates for delivery of the Goods shall be extended by this period and we shall not be liable for any damage caused to you by such extension.
4. DELIVERY OF GOODS, TRANSFER OF RISK OF DAMAGE TO GOODS
4.1 The Goods will be delivered to you on the basis agreed in the Order via email, whereby you may choose from the following options:
a) delivery within the EU via DPD, DHL;
b) delivery outside the EU via DHL Express.
4.2 The delivery time of the Goods always depends on their availability and the chosen method of delivery and payment. The estimated delivery time of the Goods will be communicated to you in the Order confirmation.
4.3 The risk of damage to the Goods shall pass to you at the time when we hand over the Goods to the carrier you have selected in accordance with Article 4.1 of these Conditions. The transfer of the risk of damage to the Goods means that from that moment you bear all consequences related to the loss, destruction, damage or any deterioration of the Goods.
4.4 Upon receipt of the Goods from the Carrier, it is Your obligation to inspect the Goods without undue delay, within 24 hours at the latest, and in the event of any defects to notify the Carrier and Us immediately. If you fail to notify any defect within 24 hours, you will lose the right to any claim for defective performance. If you notify us of any defect within 24 hours, the choice of remedy is ours. In the first instance, We will endeavour to repair the Goods, provide a reasonable discount or provide new Goods where appropriate.
4.5 As some of the Goods we offer are quite specific, you are obliged to familiarise yourself in advance with how the Goods work. It is not considered a defect if the Goods do not fully meet your expectations or do not have the characteristics you expected from the Goods, although you were explicitly warned during the communication that the Goods only work, for example, within a certain distance, in combination with other goods, etc. In these cases, it is also not a material breach of contract and you are not entitled to withdraw from the contract.
4.6 If You breach Your obligation to accept the Goods, this will not result in a breach of Our obligation to deliver the Goods to You. At the same time, Your failure to accept the Goods shall not constitute a repudiation of the Contract between Us and You. However, in such a case We shall have the right to withdraw from the Contract on the grounds of Your material breach of the Contract. If We decide to exercise this right, the withdrawal shall be effective on the date We deliver the withdrawal to You. Withdrawal from the Contract shall not affect any claim for payment of the Shipping Price or any claim for damages, if any.
4.7 If, for reasons arising on Your side, the Goods are delivered repeatedly or in a different manner than agreed in the Contract, it is Your obligation to reimburse Us for the costs of such repeated delivery. The payment details for payment of these costs will be sent to Your email address set out in the Contract and are payable 14 days after the email is sent.
4.8 In the event that the Goods are out of stock, we will always inform you if:
a) an extraordinary failure in the production of the Goods and we will always provide you with a new expected period of availability or information that the Goods cannot be delivered;
b) delay in delivery of the Goods from Our Supplier, and We will always notify You of the new expected delivery time.
4.9 In the event that We are unable to deliver the Goods to You even within 30 days of the expiry of the delivery period specified in the Order Confirmation for any reason, We and You shall be entitled to withdraw from the Contract. However, in such event You will reimburse Us for all costs already incurred by Us in delivery and communication. The payment details for payment of these costs will be sent to You at Your email address set out in the Contract and are payable 14 days after the email is sent.
5. RIGHTS FROM DEFECTIVE PERFORMANCE
5.1 As we are entering into the Contract as a business, the consumer rules do not apply to our relationship. However, as We consider Our Goods to be of good quality, We provide You with a quality guarantee for the Goods, the length of which is set out in the technical document that We will deliver to You together with the Goods, in which case the length of the guarantee will be such length as We mutually agree on the basis of mutual communication. In the event of a conflict, the shorter period shall apply. The maximum length of the warranty is 12 months. In the event that batteries are included in the Goods, the batteries are only warranted for a period of 6 months from the date the risk of damage to the Goods passes. The warranty period shall be extended if the Manufacturer has repaired or replaced the Goods pursuant to the application of the quality guarantee, by the period between the exercise of the rights and the repair or replacement.
5.2 The quality guarantee covers defects arising from manufacture, including defects in the material used in manufacture.
5.3 Unfortunately, we cannot always guarantee the warranty, so there are exceptions to the warranty in cases where a defect has been caused:
a) by installing the Goods in contravention of the installation instructions we have provided to you;
b) using the Goods outside the recommended areas of use;
c) by handling the Goods contrary to the instructions for the Goods or contrary to the principles of ordinary skill or as a result of an accident or wilful misconduct by You or a third party other than Us;
d) normal wear and tear resulting in the loss of the original characteristics of certain parts of the Goods or the Goods as a whole;
e) as a result of using spare parts or accessories that we have not marked as compatible or have been worn out;
f) the transportation of the Goods or their improper storage;
(g) modifying the Goods if We have not approved the modification, including the method of modifying or repairing the Goods by a person other than Us, unless We have recommended or approved that person;
5.4 However, if Your claim under the Quality Warranty is justified You have the following rights:
a) the right to have the Goods repaired, where the place of repair will be at Our choice, either at Our premises or at Your premises, or We may send the Goods to a third party for repair;
b) the right to delivery of replacement Goods, whereby the Goods will, at Our option, be ready for collection from Us or sent to You, against return of the defective Goods;
c) the right to delivery of the defective part of the Goods, if the nature of the part allows it, whereby the part of the Goods will, at Our option, be ready for collection from Us or sent to You, against the return of the defective part of the Goods if it is separable;
d) the right to a refund of the Price of the Goods against the return of the Goods;
e) the right to a discount on the Price of the Goods corresponding to the extent of the defect in the Goods.
5.5 We shall have the right to choose how to resolve the claim and shall always endeavour to make the resolution as appropriate as possible in relation to the defect. We shall also determine the period of time for the performance of the asserted claim. If you incur any damage during the course of the claim, we are not obliged to compensate you for it. We shall also not be liable for any damage arising in connection with Goods that are defective within the meaning of this quality guarantee.
5.6 If the Goods in question are no longer manufactured or are not available on the market at the time of the claim under the quality guarantee, or are not manufactured or are not available in the same design (in particular in colour or in the same finish or technical specification), we are entitled, in the case of delivery of new Goods, to supply Goods that perform the same function as the original Goods. The delivery of new Goods is always subject to the return of the original Goods.
5.7 The rights under the quality guarantee pursuant to this article of the Conditions must be exercised with Us.
5.8 In the event of an assertion of warranty rights, such assertion must be made in writing to Our registered office address or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5.9 Rights under the quality guarantee must be exercised within the guarantee period, but always without undue delay after the defect covered by the quality guarantee has been discovered or can be discovered with ordinary care.
5.10. The assertion of rights under the quality guarantee must be accompanied by all documents proving the existence of these rights, in particular the proof of purchase or other acquisition of the Goods, the warranty certificate (if supplied with the Goods), proof of maintenance and, if possible, proof of the absence of exclusions from the quality guarantee.
5.11. If you do not provide proof of purchase or other acquisition of the Goods when exercising your right under the quality guarantee, we may grant the claim, but the guarantee period will be calculated from the date of invoicing of the Goods by Us.
5.12. After the Goods have been delivered to Us, We will inspect the Goods and store the Goods in Our own warehouse. If We judge that the defect You allege is not covered by the warranty and We nevertheless decide to grant Your claim, We shall be entitled to charge You an amount equal to 25% of the Price for the storage and inspection, in the event that any right under clause 6.4 of these Conditions is exercised, and You agree that We may deduct this amount from any discount or refund of the Price of the Goods provided, or We may charge You for this amount on the basis of an invoice sent to You.
5.13. We are also entitled to claim compensation for all costs incurred by Us in the event of an unjustified, invalid, late or unreasonable exercise of rights under the quality guarantee.
5.14. The cost of transporting the Goods to Us shall be borne by You.

In such a case, We will invoice You for the damage caused after the Goods have been returned to Us and the amount invoiced is due within 14 days. If We have not yet returned the Price to You, We shall be entitled to set off the claim for costs against Your claim for reimbursement of the Price.

7.1 In the course of our cooperation, we will exchange a lot of information, including information that may be important for us or for you to protect, called confidential information.

7.3 We and You are obliged to keep all such information confidential, not to distribute it anywhere and to protect it from misuse. We may only use it in accordance with these Terms and for the purpose of our mutual cooperation. Should it be necessary to disclose any confidential information to a third party (e.g. authorities or court), we must inform each other of this, unless prevented by law. If You wish to disclose anything highly confidential to Us, please do not do so by unsecured email communication, but arrange with Us for an alternative way in which We will share such information.
7.4 To make sure that you keep the confidentiality, we agree a penalty for breach of confidentiality. Therefore, in whatever way You violate anything We have agreed in this clause, You shall pay Us a contractual penalty of EUR 50,000. The contractual penalty shall be payable separately for each individual case of violation and shall be payable at the time of the violation. The payment of the contractual penalty shall not affect the right to compensation for damages in full.
