Terms and conditions - FRESHMERCATO.COM

1. SCOPE OF APPLICATION

Solely the following general terms and conditions apply for the business relationship between FRESH SWITZERLAND AG (hereafter FRESH) and the customer.

2. CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT

A customer's purchase order represents the conclusion of a purchasing contract.  The email sent hereafter to the customer confirming the receipt of the order, and giving the details (order acknowledgement), does not constitute acceptance of the offer, but merely informs the customer that the order has been received.  A purchase contract is only concluded with a second email (order confirmation).  Since the products are usually fresh products, that have been produced by FRESH or directly by the producers working with FRSH, it is possible that the ordered products may become unavailable unexpectedly and with short notice. No purchase contract can arise from products that are not listed in the order confirmation.

FRESH reserves the right to check the credit standing of customers through appropriate channels, exercising the right to consult credit agencies for information on a customer's past payment practices as well as information regarding credit standing based on mathematics and statistical methods, before acceptance of the purchase order. Likewise, FRESH's credit reporting agencies may also report a customer's data based on a breach of the contract relationship.  This notification is made only to the extent necessary to protect legitimate interests. The customer can receive a report from the credit agency about the stored data concerning him.

FRESH has the right to reduce the order quantity to amounts commonly processed by FRESH.

3. CANCELLATION POLICY

a) Right to Cancellation

You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without stating any reasons. The right to cancellation lasts for fourteen days, starting on the day that you or a person acting in your behalf, have received the products of the order. In order to exercise your right to cancellation, you have to contact FRESH (hello@freshcorporation.com).  In order to meet the deadline of the cancellation period, sending off the notification before the period of fourteen days ends is sufficient to ensure the right to cancellation.

b) Consequences of Cancellation

If you cancel this order, we will reimburse you for all payments that we received from you, including shipping costs (except additional costs that have occurred if you chose a different shipping method from the primary, cost-effective option offered by us) immediately and at the latest within fourteen days from the day that we received your notification of cancellation of the contract.  We will reimburse you with the same payment method that was used for the original transaction, unless you explicitly arrange a different reimbursement with us; we will never charge you any fees for reimbursements.

We have to right to deny returning a payment as long as we have not received the return shipment, or for as long as we have not received proof of shipment, depending on which comes first.

You are required to ship or personally return the products immediately to us, and in all cases within fourteen days from the day that we received your contract cancellation notification. The deadline for the cancellation policy is met if the product is sent before the end of the fourteen day period. You will need to pay the shipping costs for returning the product. You will only have to pay for a possible loss in value of the products if this loss of value can be determined to be due to handling that is not necessary for examination of the product, including its characteristics and functioning.

c) Suspension of the Right to Cancellation

The right to cancellation does not apply to delivery contracts for products that are not prepackaged and for the manufacturing of which an individual selection and determination through the consumer is important, or that have clearly been customized for the needs of individual customers for delivery of sealed products, products that are not appropriate for returns due to hygiene or health protective reasons, if their packaging seal has been removed after delivery, products that perish quickly or if their sell-by date is short.
