1.1. The following General Terms and Conditions in their version valid at the time of ordering exclusively apply to the business relationship between Eyeworks GmbH, Hauptstrasse 52, A-8582 Rosental / Austria (hereinafter “Seller”) and the customer (hereinafter “Customer”).

1.3. A consumer in terms of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person, who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose, which can neither be attributed to his/her commercial nor his/her independent professional activity (§ 13 BGB [Civil Code]).
1.4. Any deviating conditions of the Customer will not be acknowledged, unless the Seller explicitly agrees to their validity in writing.
2. Offers and specification of services
2.1. Representation of the products in the online shop does not represent a legally binding offer, but an invitation to place an order. Service specifications in catalogues as well as on the websites of the Seller do not represent a warranty or guarantee.
2.2. All offers apply “while stocks last”, unless otherwise specified with the products. Apart from that, errors remain reserved.
3. ORDER PROCESS AND CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT
3.1. The Customer may choose products from the Seller’s assortment without any commitment and collect these in a so-called shopping cart via the [Add to cart] button.
3.2 Then the Customer may proceed to completion of the order process within the shopping cart via the [Proceed to checkout] button.
3.3. Via the [Purchase] button, the Customer makes a binding offer for purchasing the goods located in the shopping cart. Prior to sending the order, the Customer may change and view the data anytime. Required entries are marked with an asterisk (*).
3.4. Thereupon, the Seller sends an automatic confirmation of receipt via e-mail to the Customer, in which the Customer’s order is listed once again and which the Customer may print out via the “Print” function (order confirmation). The automatic confirmation of receipt merely documents that the Customer’s order has been received by the Seller and does not represent acceptance of the request. The purchase contract is only concluded, when the Seller sends the products ordered to the Customer within 2 days, hands them over, or confirms their shipment to the Customer within 2 days with a second e-mail, an explicit order confirmation or mailing of the invoice.
3.5. Should the Seller enable advance payment, then the contract is concluded with provision of the banking details and the request for payment. If the payment, despite being due, should not have been received by the Seller after a second reminder until 10 calendar days following the order confirmation being sent, then the Seller withdraws from the contract, with the consequence that the order lapses and the Seller is no longer obliged to deliver. Then the order is considered finished without consequences for Customer and Seller. Therefore, in case of advance payment, the product ordered will be reserved for a maximum of 10 calendar days.
4. PRICES AND SHIPPING COSTS
4.1. All prices indicated on the Seller’s website are understood as including the respectively valid legal sales tax.
4.2. In addition to the prices indicated, the Seller charges shipping costs for the delivery. The Customer is clearly notified about the shipping costs on the shipping costs page and within the scope of the order process.
5. DELIVERY, AVAILABILITY OF GOODS
5.1. If, at the time of the Customer’s order, no items of his/her chosen product are available, then the Seller informs the Customer about that in the order confirmation. If the product should be permanently unavailable, then the Seller refrains from a declaration of acceptance. In this case, no contract is concluded.
If the product designated in the Customer’s order should be only temporarily unavailable, then the Seller likewise immediately informs the customer about that in the order confirmation. In case of a delay in delivery of more than two weeks, the Customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract. Furthermore, in this case, the Seller, too, is entitled to withdraw from the contract. On this occasion, the Seller will immediately reimburse any payments of the Customer already made. Insofar as advance payment has been agreed, delivery is undertaken following receipt of the invoiced amount.
6. TERMS OF PAYMENT
6.1. Within the scope and before completion of the order process, the Customer may choose from the types of payment available.
6.2. If payment is possible via invoice, then the payment must be undertaken within 14 days following receipt of goods and invoice. For all other types of payment, payment must be undertaken in advance without deduction.
6.3. If third-party providers are assigned with payment processing, e.g., Paypal, then their general terms and conditions apply.
6.4. If the due date of the payment is determined by the calendar, then the Customer will already fall into arrears by failure to meet the deadline. In this case, the Customer must pay interest on arrears to the amount of 5 percentage points above the base rate.
6.5. The Customer’s obligation to pay interest on arrears does not exclude the assertion of further damages due to delay by the Seller.
6.6. The Customer is only entitled to offset, if his/her counterclaims have been legally established or acknowledged by the Seller. The Customer may only execute a right of retention, insofar as the claims result from the same contractual relationship.
7. RETENTION OF TITLE
The goods delivered remain the Seller’s property until complete payment.
8. WARRANTY COVERING MATERIAL DEFECTS AND GUARANTEE
8.1. The warranty is governed by legal provisions.
8.2. A guarantee for the goods delivered by the Seller only exists when this was explicitly provided.
9.1. Without prejudice to other legal eligibility criteria, the following exclusions and limitations of liability apply to the Seller’s liability for damages.
9.2. The Seller is liable without limitation, insofar as the cause of damage is based on intent or gross negligence.
9.3. Furthermore, the Seller is liable for the slightly negligent violation of essential obligations, the violation of which endangers achievement of the contractual purpose, or for the violation of obligations, the fulfilment of which enables proper performance of the contract in the first place and on the compliance of which the Customer regularly relies. In this case, the Seller, however, is only liable for the foreseeable damage typical for the contract. The Seller is not liable for the slightly negligent violation of other obligations than those stated in the previous sentences.
9.4. The previous limitations of liability do not apply in case of injury to life, body, and health, to a defect following assumption of a guarantee for the condition of the product, and in case of maliciously concealed defects. Liability according to the product liability act remains unaffected.
9.5. Insofar as the Seller’s liability is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of employees, representatives, and vicarious agents.

For this repayment, we use the same means of payment that you used in the original transaction, unless something else was expressly agreed with you; under no circumstances will you be charged fees for this repayment. We may refuse repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is earlier.

The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of fourteen days has expired. The costs of the return (postage) are borne exclusively by the seller in the event of incorrect or defective delivery. You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
