1.1 These trading conditions and conditions for complaints valid at the day of conclusion of the purchase contract are an integral part of the purchase contract. Provided that the seller and consumer conclude a written purchase contract and agree on conditions different from these trading conditions and conditions for complaints, provisions agreed within the purchase contract shall be prioritised over these trading conditions and conditions for complaints. Thus agreed conditions must not depart from other legal provisions (shortening of the period to return goods, warranty period and so on).
1.2 Additional contract drawn up for the purpose of these trading conditions and conditions for complaints is the contract on which the consumer acquired the goods or is provided a service in relation to the subject of the purchase contract, provided that the goods are supplied or the service performed by the seller or the third party upon their mutual agreement.

All special offers are applicable until stocks are exhausted, unless otherwise defined at particular goods.
1.4 The seller reserves the right to adjust the price of goods published at any web site related to the e-shop and operated by the seller.

1.5 Provided that the seller does not meet their obligations stipulated in currently valid legal provisions of the Slovak Republic or European Communities, or in these trading conditions and conditions for complaints, the consumer may exercise their right against the seller at the respective court.

The e-mail order must be confirmed by the seller in writing. Electronic shop deals with selling goods produced in accordance with consumer’s special requirements, tailored-made goods or goods intended solely for one consumer. The contracting party therefore loses their right to terminate the contract pursuant to the Act No. 102 § 7 Art. 6 from 2014.
