I. Introductory provisions

  1. General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as the “ GTC”) govern the terms of the purchase contract being entered into between the Seller and the Buyer, which involves a delivery of goods offered by the Seller via their catalogue accessible at the Seller’s website at www.wparespirators.com (hereinafter referred to as the “Website“) and at the Seller’s headquarters.
  2. The Buyer is either a consumer or an entrepreneur. A consumer is any individual who, outside their trade, business or profession, enters into a contract or has other dealings with an entrepreneur. An entrepreneur is a person who, on their own account and responsibility, independently carries out a gainful activity in the form of a trade or in a similar manner with the intention to do so consistently and for profit. For the purposes of consumer protection and for other purposes, any person who enters into contracts related to their own commercial, production or similar activities, or within their trade, business or profession, or a person acting in the name or on the account of an entrepreneur is also considered to be an entrepreneur. For the purposes of the present GTC, entrepreneur denotes a person who acts as referred to in the preceding sentence as part of their business or trade. If the Buyer provides their identification number in the order, they acknowledge that the rules formalised in the GTC applying to entrepreneurs apply to them as well.
  3. Where a person who intends to purchase goods from the Seller acts as part of their trade or business when ordering goods or if the person is a legal entity, a corporation or a public authority, the provisions of the present GTC concerning consumer protection shall not apply to them.
  4. The GTC define and specify the underlying rights and obligations of the Seller and the Buyer. Provisions of the present GTC are an integral part of the purchase contract. The contracting parties may agree on provisions deviating from those contained in the present GTC in their separate contract. Any deviating provisions under a separate purchase contract shall take precedence over the provisions of the present GTC.
  5. The present GTC are available at the Website so that the Buyer could archive, reproduce, keep and consult the them, which the Buyer acknowledges, and, at the time of placing their order, the Buyer undertakes to keep the GTC on file for future reference.
  6. All terms and conditions shall be governed by the purchase contract and the GTC, and any matters not expressly covered therein, shall be governed by the Civil Code and, where the other party is a consumer, by Act No. 634/1992 Coll., on consumer protection, as amended (hereinafter referred to as the “Consumer Protection Act”) .

II. Information on the goods and prices

  1. All information on the goods, including the prices and main properties of specific items , are set out in the catalogue made available at the Website in respect of each individual item. The prices are indicated both inclusive and exclusive of the value added tax and all delivery fees. The prices of the goods apply as long as they are displayed in the catalogue at the Website. This provision does not prevent the parties from agreeing on individualised prices under their purchase contract .
  2. All goods presentations displayed in the Website catalogue are for reference only and the Seller is not obliged to enter into a purchase contract regarding the goods displayed.
  3. For information on the packaging and delivery costs for the goods see the Website catalogue.

III. Form and essentials of an order

  1. The Buyer shall order the goods by placing electronic orders (sent by email or placed using the order form available at the Website), written orders, orders placed over-the-phone or personal orders. The Seller shall not be responsible for the products the Buyer selects or the quantity thereof , as the Seller assumes, reasonably and in good faith, that the Buyer possesses full legal capacity and is capable of assessing the consequences of their actions; that the Buyer has made their choice of their free will, considering all circumstances and exercising regular care and caution, or on the basis of their professional knowledge or experience, and confirmed their decision by sending an order. Where the Buyer is a legal entity, the Seller assumes, reasonably and in good faith, that a person authorised to act on behalf and for the account of the Buyer as per the Civil Code has selected the goods to be purchased and the quantity thereof.
  2. All orders received are deemed to be binding upon the Buyer even if the Buyer provides any incorrect data or data in incorrect form.
  3. The essentials of an order are as follows:
    a) Buyer’s identification and contact details;
    b) place of delivery;
    c) specification of the goods being ordered;
    d) quantity of the goods being ordered;
    e) method of transportation;
    f) required delivery date.
  4. By placing an order, the Buyer unreservedly consents to all provisions of the present GTC, as in force on the day of placing the order, and to the price of the ordered goods, as on the day of placing the order (including any shipping and carriage costs) indicated in the price list available at the Website, unless otherwise agreed on a case-by-case basis.
  5. An order placed by the Buyer is irrevocably binding upon them during the goods delivery period specified in the order. The Buyer may cancel the order at any point before they receive a notification of order receipt from the Seller. The Buyer may cancel their order by sending a notice to the Seller’s email indicated in the present GTC. For reasons of legal certainty on the part of the Buyer, the Seller will not accept order cancellations made over the phone unless they are confirmed by email on the very same day. An order may also be cancelled at a later point provided the Seller agrees to this.

IV. Order verification

  1. The Seller may check any order with the Buyer, or refuse or not deliver on any order, especially if they believe the performance could damage their reputation, if they have any doubts as to the intentions of the Buyer (mainly by checking any public register of debtors, the Buyer’s transactional history, their refusal to accept delivery on any earlier orders, any overdue debts to the Seller, etc.). The Seller may refuse to delivery on an order if the delivery could worsen their economic situation.
  2. Where the Seller has made a clear technical error when indicating the price of the goods at the Website, or during ordering, the Seller shall not obliged to deliver the goods to the Buyer at such clearly incorrect price. The Seller shall inform the Buyer of the error without undue delay and send an amended offer to the Buyer’s email address indicated in the order. The as-amended offer shall be regarded as a new draft purchase contract and the contract shall then only be deemed to have been formed after acceptance is confirmed by the Buyer at the Seller’s email address.

V. Order confirmation

  1. The Seller shall confirm receipt of an order to the Buyer by sending an acknowledgement of receipt to the email address the Buyer has specified in their order, or, in exceptional cases, over the phone, especially for urgent delivery requests. The Seller shall confirm the order without undue delay depending on their operating capacity.
  2. In the event that the Seller cannot fulfil any of the requirements specified in the order, the Seller shall send an amended offer to the Buyer’s email address.

VI. Delivery terms, delivery date

  1. The goods shall be delivered to the Buyer at the address they have specified in the order. The Buyer shall indicate the selected delivery method in the order. The Buyer can choose delivery via International Shipping – EU.

  3. If, under the purchase contract, the Seller is obliged to deliver the goods to a place specified by the Buyer in the order, the Buyer shall be obliged to accept the goods upon delivery.

  5. The title to the goods shall pass to the Buyer at the time of delivery or payment for the goods, whichever occurs later. The risk of damage to the goods shall pass to the Buyer upon receipt of the goods or once the Buyer becomes obliged to accept the goods, but fails to do so in violation of the purchase contract. Any damage to the goods after the passage of the risk of damage to the goods to the Buyer shall be without prejudice to the Buyer’s obligation to pay the purchase price of the goods, unless the damage is attributable to a breach of the Seller’s obligations.
  6. The Seller shall deliver the goods within 7 business days if the goods are in stock, but in any event within 30 business days of receiving a valid order and payment of the purchase price. However, the Seller will not deliver the goods until the Buyer has paid the purchase price; the delivery time-limits set out above shall not apply until the Buyer has paid the purchase price. In some cases, the Seller may extend the time limit for delivery to up to 4 months, or to such a period of time as is specified by the manufacturer/supplier, especially for custom goods ordered by the Buyer. The Buyer may withdraw from the contract in the event that the additional period is exceeded, except for custom goods made specifically at the Buyer’s order, as such orders cannot be cancelled or withdrawn. If the Buyer is late with the acceptance of the goods, the Seller may sell the goods to a third party after the Seller has given the Buyer, who is late with the acceptance, a reasonable period of time to accept the goods. This also applies where the Buyer is late with the payment of the purchase price, which is a precondition to delivery.
