    3. Formation of Contract

We are free to either accept these offers within 14 days of receipt or to reject them by sending you a statement to that effect. There is no binding contract to purchase formed until we have accepted your order. This acceptance is indicated by the shipment of the goods ordered. 

    You indicate that you expressly agree to have your credit rating checked by inquiries to the officially-authorized credit protection associations, credit institutions and credit inquiry agencies. We reserve the right to refuse to accept the order if we receive a negative credit report. In addition, we reserve the right to reject orders from customers if there is reason to believe that the customer is acting in contravention of the General Terms and Conditions, is involved in fraudulent activities or other activities of importance from a criminal law standpoint or any other material reason exists.

    Products and prices are as shown on the Website; products are available as long as they are in stock. We reserve the right to change the products offered on the Website at any time without notice and to limit the number of items that may be purchased by a visitor.

    There is no liability for lack of items in stock or for products not being available. 

    Any commercial resale or distribution of Sora Choi products sold on the Website is strictly prohibited.

    Please note that after your order is confirmed, no requests to change or cancel it can be considered.

     

    5. Reservation of Performance for Undeliverable Goods

    If the goods ordered cannot be delivered within 30 days following the day after your order, we may withdraw from the contract, even if we previously confirmed that we were entering into it.

    6. Price and Additional Costs

    The total price of your order, including all ancillary and shipping costs, was indicated on the previous page or will be shown at the end of the checkout process. By confirming the order, you state that you agree to the price for the goods. The price cannot be adjusted after the completion of the check-out process.

    Sora Choi products are sold by Sora Choi, which has its headquarters in Switzerland. We would like to point out that for foreign payments using credit cards, a foreign transaction fee (about 1-2%) may be charged by the institution that issued your credit card.

     

    7. Payment conditions

    The purchase price for goods ordered is due when you place your order through Sora Choi. Payment may be by credit card (by entering your card data on the Website) or for customers from Austria, Germany or Switzerland (including Liechtenstein) on account. You may settle our claims for payment only by using uncontested or final and unappealable receivables.

    If you pay with a credit card, we reserve the right to check the validity of the card and to monitor the availability parameters for collection and the address data. If the institution that issued the credit card refuses to make payment to us, we are not liable for delays or for failure to deliver.

    When you choose prepayment, your order will be processed upon receipt of your payment into our bank account. The amount is due for payment immediately. Please transfer the amount to the account listed in the checkout process using your order number as payment reference. Please note that your bank may charge additional costs for international bank transfers.

    In case the payment amount is not transferred to our bank account within 7 banking days after receiving the order confirmation, Sora Choi has the right to cancel your order.

     

    8. Delivery and Reservation of Title

    The goods ordered are normally delivered to the delivery address you provide by our contracted delivery service within 5-7 working days after the working day following your order. You can find our holidays, on which no orders are processed, on our website. If you so request, we will make efforts to deliver the goods at a specific time, but generally cannot make binding promises to do so. Until the purchase price is paid in its entirety, the goods remain our property.

    Upon receipt the shipment must be checked for accuracy and completeness.

     

    9. Right to Cancel

    As a consumer, you may cancel your order without indicating any reasons within 14 days after receipt of the goods, thereby withdrawing from the contract. The 14-day period starts on the day after you receive the goods. If you exercise this right in a timely fashion, you are no longer bound by your order.

    You can get additional information and assistance in returning items that have been ordered and the return address for your country on our Website. The cancellation may be sent in writing or on another long-lasting storage medium to the address in clause 2 above or by sending the goods to the address listed on our Website. Timely sending is sufficient to meet the deadline. The products must be in original condition with their original packaging and the return voucher must be attached to the products.

    If you cancel an order, you are obligated to return the goods to the address listed on our Website. Shipment is at your own cost and risk unless the goods delivered were not the ones ordered. The return shipment must be made no later than 14 days after cancellation has been announced.

    The costs will be reimbursed only if the goods are received unused and in original condition at the address indicated above. Please note that if you pay by gift card, the amount paid can be reimbursed only as a voucher. If partial payment is made by voucher, the voucher will first be recharged and then you will be credited.

    We will reimburse costs to ship to you and to return to us only up to the amount of standard costs.

    Vouchers can generally not be replaced or returned.
