Terms & Conditions
Customer information and Terms and Conditions For EUrope
These general terms and conditions apply to all orders through www.adorejewelry.com ("the Website"). Please read these General Terms and Conditions carefully before ordering products from this Website. By ordering our products, you indicate that you consent to the conditions below and state that you are competent to enter into legally-binding contracts and are at least 18 years old. We recognize rules that differ from these General Terms and Conditions only if they are confirmed by us in writing. That also applies to a deviation from this clause requiring written documents.
2. Contracting Party
This Website, for the sale of goods via the Internet, is operated by Swarovski Crystal Online AG (Alte Landstrasse 411, CH-8708, Männedorf, Switzerland), which is legally represented by Arno Ebner, its Managing Director. This is where you can place complaints or assert warranty claims.
You can reach our customer service on any issues firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Formation of Contract
Your orders on the Website are binding offers for entering into the associated contracts to purchase with Swarovski Crystal Online AG. We are free to either accept these offers within 14 days of receipt or to reject them by sending you a statement to that effect. There is no binding contract to purchase formed until we have accepted your order. This acceptance is indicated by the shipment of the goods ordered.
You indicate that you expressly agree to have your credit rating checked by inquiries to the officially-authorized credit protection associations, credit institutions and credit inquiry agencies. We reserve the right to refuse to accept the order if we receive a negative credit report. In addition, we reserve the right to reject orders from customers if there is reason to believe that the customer is acting in contravention of the General Terms and Conditions, is involved in fraudulent activities or other activities of importance from a criminal law standpoint or any other material reason exists.
Products and prices are as shown on the Website; products are available as long as they are in stock. We reserve the right to change the products offered on the Website at any time without notice and to limit the number of items that may be purchased by a visitor.
There is no liability for lack of items in stock or for products not being available.
Any commercial resale or distribution of Swarovski products sold on the Website is strictly prohibited.
Please note that after your order is confirmed, no requests to change or cancel it can be considered.
5. Reservation of Performance for Undeliverable Goods
If the goods ordered cannot be delivered within 30 days following the day after your order, we may withdraw from the contract, even if we previously confirmed that we were entering into it. If we withdraw, you will be informed that the goods are not available and you will be reimbursed immediately for the consideration you have already provided.
6. Price and Additional Costs
The total price of your order, including all ancillary and shipping costs, was indicated on the previous page or will be shown at the end of the checkout process. By confirming the order, you state that you agree to the price for the goods. The price cannot be adjusted after the completion of the check-out process.
Swarovski products are sold by Swarovski Crystal Online AG, which has its headquarters in Switzerland. We would like to point out that for foreign payments using credit cards, a foreign transaction fee (about 1-2%) may be charged by the institution that issued your credit card.
7. Payment conditions
The purchase price for goods ordered is due when you place your order through Swarovski Crystal Online. Payment may be by credit card (by entering your card data on the Website) or Paypal. You may settle our claims for payment only by using uncontested or final and unappealable receivables.
If you pay with a credit card, we reserve the right to check the validity of the card and to monitor the availability parameters for collection and the address data. If the institution that issued the credit card refuses to make payment to us, we are not liable for delays or for failure to deliver.
8. Delivery and Reservation of Title
The goods ordered are normally delivered to the delivery address you provide by our contracted delivery service within 5-7 working days after the working day following your order. You can find our holidays, on which no orders are processed, in our Online Shop Assistent. If you so request, we will make efforts to deliver the goods at a specific time, but generally cannot make binding promises to do so. Until the purchase price is paid in its entirety, the goods remain our property.
Upon receipt the shipment must be checked for accuracy and completeness.
