1. Scope of application
These GTC of Les Couleurs Suisse AG, Balz-Zimmermann-Strasse 7, 8302 Kloten, Switzerland, apply exclusively to all deliveries and services offered through the internet shop www.shop.lescouleurs.ch. These GTC are deemed to have been accepted when the order is sent. Les Couleurs Suisse AG reserves the right to change the GTC at any time. Different or additional conditions only apply if this has been explicitly agreed in writing. 2. Delivery areaLes Couleurs Suisse AG delivers its products worldwide. Seminars are held around the headquarters of Les Couleurs Suisse AG. 3. Delivery periodDelivery periods depend on the postal services in the country to which an order has to be sent. Les Couleurs Suisse AG cannot therefore guarantee any fixed delivery periods. Deliveries to Germany, Austria and within Switzerland are usually made within seven to ten working days. Deliveries to countries outside Europe are usually made within 14 working days. These delivery periods are simply a yardstick and delivery may take longer in special situations. 4. Minimum order valueThere is no general minimum order value. Exceptions may apply to promotion vouchers. The details are provided on the relevant vouchers (cf. section 8). 5. Pricesa) Delivery within Switzerland: the prices in the check-out process are given in Swiss francs (CHF) and include the statutory VAT. The shipping and handling charges shall also be borne by the customer. b) Delivery abroad: all prices are given in Swiss francs (CHF) and do not include the statutory VAT. The shipping and handling charges shall also be borne by the customer. Prices do not include any fees and taxes that may be payable outside Switzerland, which have to be paid by the customer. 6. Handling and shipping costsThe Swiss postal service handles the dispatch of all orders. The handling and shipping costs are based on the weight and size of the ordered goods, as well as the delivery address provided by the customer, and are automatically calculated by our shop system. The shipping and handling charges shall be borne by the customer. These costs are displayed in the shopping cart before an order is sent. The customer also bears any additional costs incurred for special delivery requests. 7. Terms of paymentPayment is made according to one of the payment options available during the order process (PayPal, invoice) on the stated terms. All invoices are payable net within 14 days of the invoice date. For customers who fail to pay their invoices, CHF 30.00 (excluding VAT) is charged per reminder, plus any additional collection costs. Les Couleurs Suisse AG reserves the right to request advance payments.
8. Redemption of promotion vouchers
Promotion vouchers are vouchers with a restricted period of validity that are distributed by Les Couleurs Suisse AG at promotional events. These vouchers cannot be purchased. The following conditions as well as the conditions printed on the vouchers apply to these promotion vouchers. Promotion vouchers are only valid for the period indicated. They can only be redeemed once and only before the end of an order process. Promotion vouchers cannot be combined with one another (or with different promotion vouchers). Some products may be excluded from the voucher campaign. The required minimum order value is stated on the voucher. If the minimum order value is subsequently not met because some articles are returned, Les Couleurs Suisse AG reserves the right to cancel the voucher and invoice the products delivered to the customer. If the value of a promotion voucher does not cover the value of the order, the difference must be paid using one of the available payment options (see section 7). Owners of vouchers are not entitled to the reimbursement or replacement of a voucher. The value of the voucher shall neither be paid out in cash, nor shall it earn interest.
