4. Conclusion of a contract
www.menetsattel.ch presents the customer with a non-binding invitation to order products and/or services or to make use of consulting services. By placing an order via www.menetsattel.ch, whether by telephone or in writing, which includes accepting these Terms, the customer submits a legally binding offer to conclude a contract. When an order is placed via the online shop, Menetsattel sends an automatic “order confirmation” by email, which acknowledges that the customer’s purchase offer has been received by Menetsattel. Orders that have been placed are binding for the customer. The contract for a purchase of goods is concluded as soon as Menetsattel sends a written declaration of acceptance (by email, post or fax), in which the dispatch of the ordered products or services is confirmed or if Menetsattel verbally confirms the order and in addition the entire purchase price has been paid by the customer. The contract for the purchase of a saddle is concluded as soon as Menetsattel confirms the customer’s order orally or in writing (by e-mail, post or fax). If it turns out after conclusion of the contract that the ordered goods cannot be delivered or cannot be delivered completely, Menetsattel is entitled to withdraw from the entire contract or from a part of the contract. If the customer’s payment has already been received by Menetsattel, the payment will be refunded to the customer. If payment has not yet been made, the customer is released from obligation to pay. When a contract is cancelled in this way, Menetsattel is not obligated to make a substitute delivery. The contract for a consulting service is concluded as soon as Menetsattel expressly declares acceptance of the order to the customer.
5. Payment possibilities
When purchasing goods the customer has a choice of payment options, as listed by Menetsattel. Menetsattel reserves the right to demand payment in advance or a deposit or advance payment as well as to exclude customers from individual payment options without stating reasons. Until full payment has been received, the goods remain the property of Menetsattel. Menetsattel may charge interest on arrears of 5% per annum and a reminder fee of a maximum of CHF 20 per reminder and/or withdraw from the contract and/or refuse any further deliveries of goods or services.
6. Delivery, verification, notification of defects and return of goods
All stated delivery times and delivery deadlines are without guarantee. Saddles ordered are delivered personally and are measured up and adjusted on site. Other shipments are sent by mail or courier service to the address indicated by the customer in the order. Upon dispatch, the benefit and risk are transferred to the customer, insofar as this is legally permissible. If the shipment cannot be delivered or if the customer refuses to accept the delivery, Menetsattel can dissolve the contract after notifying the customer by e-mail and after fixing a time limit, also charge the costs incurred in the process. The customer is obliged to check the delivered goods immediately upon receipt of the shipment and to notify Menetsattel immediately in writing by letter or e-mail of any defects for which Menetsattel provides a warranty. Goods are returned to Menetsattel at the customer’s expense and risk.

7. Right of cancellation in the case of purchased goods
The customer is granted a right of cancellation for seven calendar days after receipt of the goods. The deadline is considered to have been met if the customer returns the goods to Menetsattel within this period. The cancellation does not require a reason. The exercise of the right of cancellation leads to a reversal of the contract. The customer must return the goods in their original packaging, unopened and complete with all accessories and together with the delivery note. Returns to Menetsattel are at the expense and risk of the customer. Any payment already made (excluding shipping costs) will be refunded to the customer, if Menetsattel has already received the goods back or the customer provides proof that they have returned the goods.
Menetsattel reserves the right to demand appropriate compensation for damage, excessive wear and tear or loss of value due to improper handling and to deduct this loss in value from amount refunded or to charge it to the customer. No right of cancellation is granted if the contract concerns an item which is produced according to the customer’s specifications or is clearly tailored to personal needs (e.g. all saddles).
8. Guarantee in the case of purchased goods
