Individual agreements between you and us, however, shall prevail.
1.1 THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES
Our GTCT shall not apply, if our products are sold, delivered, brought or rendered to you by third-party websites, irrespective of whether you directly go to the third-party website or click yourself through a link on our website to the third-party website (like for example iTunes, Amazon or other online stores etc). Only the third-party’s terms and conditions shall apply in such cases. IN SUCH CASES WE ARE NOT THE VENDOR AND WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONTRACT THAT YOU CONCLUDE WITH THE THIRD PARTY. ONLY THE THIRD PARTY AND NOT US IS RESPONSIBLE IN SUCH CASES.
1.2 OUR GTCT APPLY ONLY, IF WE ARE THE VENDOR
Our GTCT shall only apply to such products (goods and services) which are sold, delivered, brought or rendered by us, the vendor Fameuz AG, through this website to you as our customer. The term “product(s)” shall also include services. The term “customer” shall include entrepreneurs and consumers.
1.3 By ordering goods or services through this website with us as a vendor you agree that our GTCT shall apply exclusively to the business or legal relationship between you as our customer and us. We will accept no other terms and conditions by our customers or third persons. Even our silence does not make such other terms and conditions part of our business or legal relationship with you. Individual agreements between you and us, however, shall prevail.

1.5 Please be aware that there will be no 100% guarantee that this website will constantly be available at all times. However, we will use our best efforts to make this website available to you as far as this is technically possible and reasonably achievable.
1.6 We have the right to reasonably change our services to the customer or to stop offering any services to customers in the future.
1.7 We may reasonably revise and update our GTCT at any time by posting such revised or updated GTCT on or at our website. Any changes to our GTCT will become effective upon posting such revisions or updates. You agree to be bound to the modifications and should therefore periodically visit this page to review our current GTCT to which you are bound. We will inform you, if legally necessary, about your right of withdrawal.
2.1 If we mention prices on this website or in our written material, or if we describe our services therein, we want to only invite you to make an offer to buy our products (so called invitatio ad offerendum). The offer is then your order of one or more of our products with us. We are free to accept or not to accept your offer. Once we have accepted your offer, we have reached an agreement with you. Before this moment, we are free to change the prices for our products and other terms and conditions.
2.2 After we have received an offer (order) from a customer, we have 7 days time to accept or not to accept the offer. Silence from our side will mean that we did not accept the customer’s offer. The customer can order from us only online via our website.
2.3 The offer of a customer will be accepted from us usually in one of the following ways:
- an order confirmation of the customer’s offer or
- we send out the ordered product to the customer and the customer actually receives it.
2.4 Before we accept your offer, you may receive an automatically created e-mail summary of your offer (order). Please note, that this summary e-mail is not an acceptance of your offer (order). This e-mail only summarizes all content of your offer (order). An order confirmation (acceptance of your offer) will instead have the headline “Order Confirmation.”
3.1 Right of withdrawal
If you are a consumer, you have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (Fameuz AG, Eggstrasse 3, CH-8803 Rüschlikon, Switzerland, telephone: +41 44 585 96 42, e-mail: [email protected]) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You may use the below model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.
To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
3.2 Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us.
