Delivery time / delivery / obligation to check the delivery

The information on the availability and / or delivery time in the seller’s online shop is to the best of our knowledge up to date, but is without warranty and may be changed at any time. The type of delivery (postage, collection, delivery, delivery with instruction), the expected date of delivery and the possible performance of additional services will be agreed upon by e-mail or by telephone after confirmation of the order. The vendor is readily released from his obligation to deliver particularly without notice, if the advance payment of the customer is not credited to the vendor’s bank account at the latest 3 working days before the agreed delivery date. The transport risk lies solely with the customer. He is obliged to check the delivered or picked up products immediately upon receipt for correctness, completeness and delivery damage. Any deficiencies (incorrect delivery, incomplete delivery, damage to the goods, etc.) must be reported immediately to the vendor, and further course of action is to be agreed with him. In the event of a delay in delivery (non-observance of the agreed delivery date) of more than 30 days by the vendor, the customer (except for special orders, such as individual goods, special colors, etc.) has the right to withdraw from the contract. In this case, the vendor pays back the prepayment (s) made by the customer. Any further claims against the vendor are expressly excluded. If the customer is in default of acceptance (delivery is not accepted, pickup is not perceived, etc.), then the seller has the right to withdraw from the contract (contract resolution). In this case, the seller is entitled to a compensation of EUR100.00 plus 20% of the order value. The Seller is expressly entitled to deduct such reimbursement from the repayment of the advance payment.

Cancellation right

The customer (consumer) is in principle entitled to a right of withdrawal, namely the right to revoke the contract without giving reasons. This right shall be exercised within fourteen days from the date on which the customer or a third party designated by him, who is not the carrier, has taken possession of the goods. In order to exercise the right of revocation, the customer must provide the vendor with a clear statement (eg a letter sent by mail to YouMo AG, Herrenberg 35, CH-8640 Rapperswil, Switzerland or e-mail to info@youmo.ch with the text “I hereby revoke the contract for the purchase according to order, confirmation (No.) from (date) and I wish to reimburse the purchase price to the bank account (IBAN)”. In order to maintain the revocation period, it suffices that a notification to exercise the right of revocation be sent before the expiry of the period of revocation. In the case of cancellation of the contract, the vendor is obliged to pay the customer all the payments including the delivery costs (with the exception of the additional costs resulting from the fact that the customer chooses a different type of delivery than the most favorable standard delivery offered by the vendor) Which he has received from him concerning the revoked contract, at least within fourteen days after receipt of the notice of revocation. The repayment shall be effected without any deduction from the account allocated to the customer in the revocation notification. The repayment may be refused until the vendor has recovered the goods or until proof is provided which shows that the goods have been returned, depending on whichever is earlier. The goods must be returned or handed over to the seller without delay and in any case not later than fourteen days from the date of the revocation notification. The time limit shall be met if the goods are dispatched before the expiry of the period of 14 days. The direct costs of returning the goods are borne by the customer. The customer shall only be liable for any loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is attributable to the handling of the goods, which is not necessary to check the quality, characteristics and functioning of the goods. The right of revocation does not exist in the case of the delivery of goods which are not prefabricated and which are subject to an individual selection or destination by the consumer or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer. Damage and contamination must be avoided. If possible, the original packaging with all accessories and with all packaging components should be used during the return. If the original packaging is no longer available, adequate packaging must be used to ensure adequate protection against transport damage in order to avoid damage claims due to poor packaging.

Reservation of proprietary rights

If the vendor is payed in advance, he retains ownership to the delivered goods until full payment of the purchase price owed.
