1.3. Provisions different from the Terms of Service may be agreed in the Purchase Agreement. Such different provisions agreed in the Purchase Agreement take precedence over the provisions of the Terms of Service.

1.5. The Seller may make changes and additions to the text of the Terms of Service. This clause is not to prejudice the rights and duties originating while a previous version of the Terms of Service was in force.
2. USER ACCOUNT
2.1. Registration is not mandatory on the website of the operator of the e-shop, Purecrafts Erope s.r.o. All provided data serve solely for processing a specific order and are never disclosed to third parties, with the exception of the providers of postal/ shipping services.
3. ENTRY INTO THE PURCHASE AGREEMENT
3.1. Any and all goods presented on the e-shop web interface serve for illustrative purposes only, and the Seller is under no obligation to enter into a Purchase Agreement regarding thus presented goods. The provisions of Section 1732, Paragraph 2 of the Civil Code do not apply.
3.2. The e-shop web interface contains information about goods, including the price for specific goods. Prices for goods are stated inclusive of value added tax and all related fees with the exception of postage. Prices for goods remain in effect as long as they remain displayed on the e-shop web interface. This provision is not to prejudice the Seller’s right to enter into a Purchase Agreement under individually negotiated terms and conditions.
3.3. The e-shop web interface also provides information on the cost of packing and delivering goods to countries listed on the website, EU Member States, and countries outside the EU, USA and Canada.
3.4. To order goods, the Buyer must fill out an order form through the e-shop web interface. The order form mainly serves for the entry of information regarding:
3.4.1. the ordered goods (the Buyer places the ordered goods into the electronic shopping basket in the e-shop web interface),
3.4.2. the method for paying the purchase price for the goods and requested method for the delivery of the ordered goods, and
3.4.3. costs relating to the delivery of the goods (“order”).
3.5. Prior to submitting an order to the Seller, the Buyer is allowed to verify and change data the Buyer entered into the order, at which time the Buyer can detect and correct errors made during the entry of data into the order form. The Buyer submits an order to the Seller by clicking on the “Confirm Order” button. The Seller considers data stated in an order to be correct, and every submitted order is considered binding.
3.6. The submission of an order is considered to constitute an action on the part of the Buyer which incontestably identifies the ordered goods, the purchase price, the Buyer, and the terms for the payment of the purchase price, and which constitutes a proposal for the entry into a Purchase Agreement that is binding on the contracting parties. The validity of an order is conditional on the entry of all mandatory data into the order form and on the Buyer’s confirmation of having read and understood these Terms of Service, as posted on the website.
3.7. Immediately after receiving an order, the Seller confirms the receipt thereof to the Buyer by electronic mail, at the Buyer’s electronic mail address stated in the user interface or in the order (“Buyer’s e-mail address”).

3.9. A draft Purchase Agreement in the form of an order remains valid for 15 days.
3.10. The contractual arrangement between the Seller and the Buyer originates upon the delivery of an order confirmation (acceptance), which the Seller sends to the Buyer’s e-mail address by electronic mail.

3.12. An amended offer is considered to constitute a new draft Purchase Agreement, and the Purchase Agreement is in such a case entered into only upon the Buyer’s acceptance thereof by electronic mail.
3.13. The Buyer agrees to the use of remote means of communication for the purpose of entering into the Purchase Agreement. Costs incurred by the Buyer as part of the use of remote means of communication in connection with the entry into the Purchase Agreement (Internet connection fees, telephone charges) are assumed by the Buyer. These costs correspond to the basic rates for the relevant service.

4.3. The Seller does not require the Buyer to make advance payment or another similar payment. The foregoing is not to prejudice Article 4.6 of the Terms of Service regarding the requirement to pay the purchase price in advance.
4.4. The Seller has the right, particularly in the event that the Buyer fails to provide a supplementary order confirmation (Article 3.8), to request the payment of the purchase price in full prior to dispatching the goods to the Buyer. The provisions of Section 2119, Paragraph 1 of the Civil Code do not apply.
4.5. Where applicable, discounts on the price of goods provided by the Seller to the Buyer may not be combined.
4.6. Where customary in business dealings or where required under laws of general application, the Seller issues to the Buyer an invoice for payments made based on the Purchase Agreement.

A copy of the invoice is enclosed with the ordered goods.

In the event of withdrawal from the Purchase Agreement in accordance with Article 5.2 of the Terms of Service, the Seller will refund funds received from the Buyer within 14 (fourteen) days after the Buyer’s withdrawal from the Purchase Agreement using the same method in which the Seller received the funds from the Buyer. Alternatively, the Seller may refund the Buyer’s payment already upon the return of the goods by the Buyer or using another method, provided that the Buyer agrees and provided that no additional costs are thus incurred by the Buyer. If the Buyer withdraws from the Purchase Agreement, the Seller will be under no obligation to issue a refund to the Buyer before the Buyer returns the goods to the Seller or demonstrates that the goods have been dispatched to the Seller.
5.6. If the goods are damaged, the Seller may unilaterally offset compensation for such damage against the Buyer’s refund of the purchase price.
