§ 1 Order placement
With an order placement to The Ribbon Artist, regardless of which form of order (per Internet, via email, per fax or by phone), the customer accepts these terms and conditions for the length of the business relationship. Modifications, additions, and ancillary agreements must be made in writing. The order becomes legally binding upon written order confirmation by The Ribbon Artist. It is the responsibility of the customer to check the order confirmation for accuracy.
§ 2 Delivery Times and Deadlines
The Ribbon Artist strives to meet the agreed upon and specified delivery dates. Orders of up to 100 pieces must be made at least 3 weeks prior to the desired shipment date. Orders of 100 to 300 pieces must be made at least 6 weeks prior to the desired shipment date. Larger orders require a period of at least 8 weeks before delivery. Please ask us for dates for larger quantities. The dispatch of goods ordered shall occur from our registered office at the expense and at the risk of the customer. Shipment shall be carried out by a carrier of our choice. Shipping costs are calculated according to a flat rate expense. Please ask about shipping and packaging costs as these are subject to quantity and shipping rates.
We ship our products in Germany and Europe, but also worldwide. In order to provide timely delivery, The Ribbon Artist must be provided with the date of the event. If express delivery is requested or required to meet the agreed delivery date, all additional costs incurred shall be borne by the customer.
The Ribbon Artist makes every effort to adhere to any quoted or agreed delivery date. However, stated delivery times and dates are non-binding, unless an individual deadline or delivery date has been expressly agreed upon as binding. Failure to meet delivery times and deadlines shall not entitle the buyer to any claim for compensation or to rescind the contract. In the event of it being impossible to adhere to agreed delivery times due to force majeure, or a breakdown or a delay in delivery from our sub-suppliers, then we are entitled to extend the delivery deadline by the length of time that we were prevented from making deliveries or, optionally, to withdraw from the contract.
§ 3 Offers, Prices and terms of Payment
Offers from The Ribbon Artist are non-binding and subject to confirmation. Upon order completion and delivery The Ribbon Artist will provide the customer with an invoice. The invoice amount is payable immediately and must be paid in full within 10 days after receipt of the order. The date of delivery is considered the date of invoice. Deviating agreements must be made in writing. We reserve the right to supply goods solely through cash on delivery, payment in advance or other payment terms to be agreed with the customer instead of the normal terms of payment.
The following payment methods are accepted: PayPal or bank transfer. For initial orders of new customers we accept advance payment only. Until full payment for the goods has been received, the goods remain the legal property of The Ribbon Artist. All prices in the price lists are net and exclude the statutory VAT applicable at the time (currently 19%). In case of default The Ribbon Artist is entitled to charge default interest at the rate of 5% as well as an administration fee of EUR 5.00 per overdue notice. The Ribbon Artist reserves the right to prove a higher amount of damage. If payment does not take place within the timeframe specified in the overdue notice, all outstanding invoices of the customer become due for immediate payment. The claim can then be passed to a debt collection agency for collection or an attorney for recovery. All resulting costs shall be borne by the customer.
§ 4 Replacement
The Ribbon Artist produces all rosettes according to customer specifications, therefore no returns or exchanges may be accepted.
§ 5 Place of performance and jurisdiction
Röbel Germany shall be the place of performance for both parties for delivery, performance and payment for all rights and obligations arising from any agreement. The sole place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising directly or indirectly from the contractual relationship shall be Röbel, Germany. The laws of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply solely for these Terms and Conditions and all legal relationships between us and the Customer.
§ 6 Consumer disputes
