The term “customers” includes both consumers and business customers. If provisions of these terms and conditions only apply to contracts with consumers, this is explicitly pointed out; the same applies accordingly to the provisions of these terms and conditions, which only apply to contracts with entrepreneurs. If no corresponding notice is given, the respective provision applies to consumers and entrepreneurs.

The currently valid version of these terms and conditions can be called up at any time at www.smartmelts.at/agb and is also available for download.

Changes or additions to a contract between smartmelts and an entrepreneur must be made in writing. This also applies to changes to the written form requirement.

2. Validity of the terms and conditions

As soon as a customer places an order or otherwise enters into a contractual relationship with smartmelts, these terms and conditions are deemed to have been agreed.

3. Conclusion of a contract

Rechbauerstraße 31 / 2.OG

Commercial register number: FN 535684 x ​​Commercial

conditions.

4. Defense clause

General terms and conditions or contractual conditions of the customer that deviate from these terms and conditions are deemed not to have been agreed, unless these are expressly accepted by smartmelts as part of the contract.

5. Conclusion of a contract

The presentation of the goods in the smartmelts online shop does not constitute a legally binding contract offer on our part, but is only a non-binding invitation to the customer to order goods. By ordering the desired goods, the customer submits a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract.

The acceptance of the offer by smartmelts takes place either in writing by e-mail (this is not the “order confirmation” listed below) or by sending the ordered goods within one week.

The offer is deemed not to have been accepted if smartmelts expressly rejects the offer by e-mail to the e-mail address given by the customer or if smartmelts does not send the goods within one week.

The customer submits a binding contract offer in our online shop by successfully going through the ordering procedure provided in our online shop:

  1. Selection of the desired article / product
  2. Click on the “Add to cart” button
  3. Checking the goods in the shopping cart
  4. Confirm the purchase by clicking on the “Checkout” button
  5. Registration in the online shop after registering and entering the login data (it is also possible to place an order as a guest)
  6. Selection of the place of delivery and the desired method of payment
  7. Another check or correction of the information and data in the order overview
  8. Binding sending of the order by clicking on “order with obligation to pay”.

After receipt of the order, smartmelts sends a notification e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the customer, in which the receipt of the order is confirmed and its content is reproduced (hereinafter referred to as “order confirmation”). This order confirmation does not constitute an acceptance of the offer by smartmelts.

6. Storage of the contract text

The text of the contract, i.e. the customer’s information on the order process, is saved by smartmelts and can be viewed by the customer under the link “My Account” or “My Orders”. Regardless of this, smartmelts also sends these terms and conditions in the order confirmation to the email address provided by the customer.
