- You are able to conclude legally binding contracts.
- You are at least 18 years old.
- You are a private individual and buying products for non-commercial purposes.
3. Buying Goods, Ordering Procedure
- Your product order on this website counts as an offer to purchase the product according to the sales and delivery conditions.
- After you have placed an order, you will receive an e-mail from us confirming that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted.
- Orders depend on acceptance by ATLANTIC.
- The delivery times are only approximate and non-binding, unless such deadlines / dates are expressly confirmed by ATLANTIC by a separate written declaration as binding.
- In the event that ordered products are not available, we will advise you by e-mail, and you will have the option either to wait until the product becomes available, or to cancel the order.
- We confirm our acceptance of your order, when we send you our order confirmation by e-mail. This creates a binding contract between us.
- The contract refers only to those products, which are listed in our order confirmation. We are not obliged to deliver any other products, which may have been included in your order, unless we have confirmed the despatch of these products in a separate order confirmation.
4. Price and Payment
- Product prices correspond with those listed on the website, except in clear cases of error.
Switzerland + Liechtenstein: all listed prices include VAT at current rates.
Rest of the world: all listed prices do not include VAT. The VAT can be charged to the customer through the customs of the particular country.
- Our internet site contains a large number of products, and even with our greatest efforts, it is still possible, that some products on our website are not showing the correct price. Normally we check all prices during our despatch process. If the correct price is lower than the indicated price, we calculate the lower price when despatching. Should the correct price be higher than that quoted on the internet, we will at our discretion, either contact you prior to despatch or decline your order and confirm this to you.
- We are not obliged to deliver a product to you at an incorrect (lower) price, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognized by you as an incorrect price entry, even if we have already sent you a contract confirmation listing the wrong price.
- Payment can be made with the credit or debit card mentioned during the order process. In Switzerland and Liechtenstein it is also possible to obtain goods via cash in advance. We will include the price you are to pay in the contract confirmation. Payment must be made prior to product shipment. We will debit your credit card with the amount owing shortly before product shipment. We will hold product delivery until receipt of your full payment.
- All credit card holders undergo credit checks and approvals with their credit card companies. The personal data of credit card holders, which are necessary for these checks, may have to be shared with third parties. Should the issuer of a credit card refuse to authorise payment, we cannot be held responsible for delays or non-deliveries.
- We will confirm shipment details by e-mail. Delivery will follow generally within 3 to 5 working days from the date of order, unless other arrangements were agreed at the time of order.
- The delivery address corresponds with the data in the contract confirmation. We deliver just into selected countries which are choosable during the registration process. For practical reasons, we may send several products from the same order in part-shipments and confirm this in the despatch notice.
- Atlantic bears the transport costs. Import duty etc. has to be paid through the costumer.
6. Transfer of ownership and risk
- Ownership of the product is transferred to you upon the complete payment of the full sales price or with the delivery of the product, whichever happens later. We may still demand the return of delivered products at any time before the transfer of ownership, in the event that you do not comply with the sales and delivery conditions.
- The product risk is transferred to you upon its delivery to the requested address. Risk in this context means responsibility for damages, which happen to the product or during its handling, usage or storage.
