2. Webshop Operator
The webshop is operated by Mondaine Watch Ltd., registered at Etzelstrasse 27, 8808 Pfäffikon/SZ, Switzerland.
Our customer service can be reached via email@example.com.
3. Ordering Process
The presentation of the product assortment of Mondaine Watch Ltd. in its webshop does not represent an offer to conclude a sales contract with the customer. It is non-binding. By clicking on the button “Order now”, you submit a binding order concerning the item to the shopping cart.
All orders are subject to our agreement in the form of an acknowledgment of the order, which we send to you via email.
Our acknowledgment of the order represents a binding contract for the purchase of the ordered item. However, the contract applies only to those goods which we have accepted in the acknowledgment of the order and not for any other items which you may also have ordered in the webshop.
We reserve the right to delay or cancel orders when the items are not available or we have received a negative credit report or for any other reason relevant to the sales process.
4. Product Description and Availability
We make every conceivable effort to present the products as precisely as possible in the webshop. However, we cannot guarantee the descriptions and depictions of these products are exact and free of errors and that the products conform to your expectations. Product descriptions and prices can change without prior notice.
If the products ordered are not available, we will inform you via email and give you the option to wait and see whether the items will become available again or to cancel the order for a full refund.
We reserve the right to discontinue products at any time and at our discretion or to refuse to accept orders from certain geographic regions or to limit the quantities which are available for sale in the webshop.
5. Prices and Payment
The price of a product corresponds to the information given on our website, with the exception of obvious errors. In the case of obvious errors in pricing which you should have reasonably been able to recognize as incorrect, we will calculate the correct price even if we have already sent you the acknowledgment of the order.
The total price of your order, including VAT and shipping costs, is shown at the end of the online ordering process. Price fluctuations are possible. The authoritative price is the one shown at the time the offer was accepted. By confirming the order, you agree to the price shown.
The purchase price and any shipping costs which arise are due upon conclusion of the contract, subject to the following provisions.
The purchase price can be settled using the credit cards referred to during the ordering process. Your credit card will be charged the full amount owed at the time the order or pre-order is placed
Credit card holders are subject to validity checks and approvals by the credit card issuers. We have the right to use personal data belonging to the card holder, together with third parties to the extent necessary, in order to carry out such checks ourselves and to process payments. If the card issuer should refuse the approval of the payment to us, we have the right to delay delivery or cancel the order or pre-order.
For purchases made on invoice, the amount of the invoice is payable no later than the date given on the invoice to the account of our external partner given on the invoice. Invoicing as a payment method depends on, among other things, a successful credit check by our payment provider. For a purchase on invoice, the payment is made through our external partner, to which we cede our demand for payment of the purchase price arising from the sales contract. In this case, only payments made to our external partner serve to settle any outstanding debts.
As an external payment provider, MF Group/POWERPAY offers the payment option ‘Pay by invoice’. You can simply pay for your online purchase by invoice using the order invoice. If you do not make the payment within the specified period, you will receive a subsequent monthly invoice the following month with an order overview.
When a purchase agreement is made, POWERPAY takes on the amount receivable and processes it using the payment method selected. By selecting purchase by invoice, you are also agreeing to our GTC, POWERPAY’s GTC. (powerpay.ch/en/agb).
For general customer inquiries (e.g. on items, delivery times, shipments), returns, complaints, cancellations of permissions or shipments, or credit, we remain responsible.
The items are sent to the delivery address provided with your order. The delivery is made within 1 to 3 business days after the date of the order, unless something different was expressly agreed at the time the order was submitted.
If we are not able to ship the items you ordered within 30 days of the order date confirmed by us, you can cancel your order free of charge and we will process a full refund to you using the same payment method through which we received your payment. For subscription models/pre-orders, the waiting period until you may cancel your order is 90 days from the expected delivery date confirmed by us.
At the moment the item is received, you are obligated to check the shipment for completeness and correctness. Missing, broken or damaged products must be reported to us in writing immediately after delivery.
As a customer, you have the right to cancel your agreement to the contract in writing (e.g. letter, email, fax), or by sending back the item, without giving reasons within 14 days of receiving the item. The cancellation period begins on the day the item is received by the recipient.
The timely sending of the cancellation or the item itself is sufficient to comply with the deadline. Customers need to bear the cost of the return of items. The cancellation declaration can be sent by post or email to the following address:
Mondaine Watch Ltd.
For returned items, the customer bears the burden of proof.
If you have canceled the contract, you must return or hand over the items (including any other items which were included in the shipment) immediately, undamaged and together with the receipt, within fourteen days at the latest from the day on which you notified us of the cancellation. The deadline has been observed if you have sent the items before the end of the fourteen-day period. If you cancel the contract in accordance with the present conditions and return the items, we will refund to you the price paid within 14 days from the day on which we receive the returned items and by the same means which you used to pay. If not all of the items contained in the shipment are returned, or if the watch is not in its original condition (i.e. it was used or damaged beyond what was necessary to check its quality or functionality), we have the right to deduct the cost of the missing items or the replacement of the damaged parts from the reimbursement.
