General terms and conditions of business
- Scope of application
For all orders via our online shop the following GTC apply. Our online shop is directed exclusively to consumers.

Entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which acts in exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
- Contracting party / Conclusion of contract
The purchase contract is concluded with “Cristian Accardo sole proprietorship”.
By placing the products in the online shop we make a binding offer to conclude a contract for these articles.

The contract is concluded when you accept the offer for the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the order button. Immediately after sending the order you will receive another confirmation by email.

If you choose the payment method prepayment, we will provide our bank details in a separate email and deliver the goods after receipt of payment.
- Transport damage
If goods are delivered with obvious transport damages, please complain about such defects to the deliverer as soon as possible and contact us immediately. Failure to make a complaint or contact us has no consequences for your legal claims and their enforcement, especially your warranty rights. However, you help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance company.
- Warranty and guarantee
Unless expressly agreed otherwise below, the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
The following applies to used goods: if the defect occurs after one year from delivery of the goods, claims for defects are excluded. Defects that occur within one year from delivery of the goods can be claimed within the legal limitation period of two years from delivery of the goods.
The above restrictions and shortening of deadlines do not apply to claims based on damage caused by us, our legal representatives or vicarious agents
- in case of injury to life, body or health,
- in the event of intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty or fraudulent intent,
- in case of violation of essential contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely (cardinal obligations) within the framework of a guarantee promise, if agreed or as far as the scope of application of the product liability law is opened.
Information on any additional warranties that may apply and their exact conditions can be found with the product and on special information pages in the online shop.

- in case of injury to life, body or health,

Otherwise, claims for damages are excluded.
- Dispute settlement
The European Commission provides an Online Dispute Resolution (OS) platform, which you can find here
We are neither obliged nor willing to participate in dispute settlement proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.
- Protection of minors
If your order includes goods whose sale is subject to age restrictions, we will ensure that the customer has reached the required minimum age by using a reliable procedure involving a personal identity and age check. The deliverer only hands over the goods after the age check has been carried out and only to the ordering person personally.
