2. Contractual partner, formation of contract, correction facilities

The contract is concluded with Toynamics UK & Ireland.

The presentation of the products in the online shop does not constitute a legally binding offer, but rather, a non-binding online catalogue. You may initially place our products into the shopping basket without obligation and check your entries at any time prior to submitting your binding offer, by using the correction aids provided and explained for this in the ordering process. By clicking on the ordering button, you are submitting a binding offer to buy the products contained in the shopping basket. The confirmation of receipt of your order will take place by e-mail directly after sending the order.

We will accept your offer within two days

  • by sending you a notice of acceptance in a separate e-mail or
  • by shipping the goods, or
  • if applicable, by having the payment transaction processed by our service provider or the selected payment service provider. The time of processing of the transaction depends on the respective payment method selected (see below under "Payment").

The relevant alternative for you is determined by which of the listed events occurs first.

3. Contract language, saving of the contract text

The language(s) available for concluding the contract: English

We save the text of the contract and forward the order data and our General Terms to you by e-mail. The text of the contract cannot be accessed via the internet for security reasons.

We only dispatch goods en route; pick up by the customer is not possible.

5. Payment

The following payment methods are basically available in our online shop:

Credit Card
With the submission of the order, you are sending us your credit card details at the same time.
Your card will be charged immediately after placing your order.

SEPA direct debit
By placing an order, you grant us a SEPA direct debit mandate. We will inform you about the date of charging your account at least one bank business day in advance (so-called prenotification). A bank business day is any working day with the exception of Saturdays, national public holidays and the 24th and 31st of December each year. Debiting the account takes place prior to shipping the goods.

The payment transaction will be processed by PayPal after placing the order. You will receive further instructions during the ordering process.

6. Damage during delivery

If the goods are delivered with obvious damage caused during delivery, please report the defect to the carrier and notify us without delay. Failure to make a complaint or to make contact does not in any way affect your legal rights or the enforcement of such rights, notably your warranty rights. However, in doing so you help us to assert our own claims against the carrier or transport insurer.

7. Warranty and guarantees

We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract. Statutory warranty rights apply. Information on any additional guarantees and their precise conditions that may apply can be found next to the product or on distinct information pages in the online shop, if applicable.

8. Liability

We shall in any case be liable without limitation for claims due to damages that have been caused by us, our legal representatives or legal agents
• for injury to life, limb or health
• for deliberately or grossly negligent breach of duty
• for guarantee commitments, where agreed
• insofar as the scope of application of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 is open
• in relation to any other liability, including any liabilities under sale of goods or supply of services legislation, that may not by applicable law be excluded or limited.

For breach of material contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which make the proper execution of the contract possible at all and which the contracting parties may generally rely on and trust in being complied with, due to slight negligence by us, our legal representatives or legal agents, the amount of liability is limited to the foreseeable damages at the time of contract conclusion, the occurrence of which must typically be anticipated.
Ceteris paribus, claims for compensation for damages are excluded.

9. Online dispute resolution

The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (ODR) which can be accessed at https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
We are neither obligated nor willing to participate in dispute settlement proceedings before a dispute resolution body.
