IV. Procedure for concluding a Sales Agreement

The Customer can familiarize himself with the main characteristics of the goods before placing an order on the pages of the Online Store regarding individual goods. In order to conclude a Distance Sales Agreement via the Online Store, go to the Online Store website and select the Goods, taking further technical steps based on the messages displayed to the Customer and information available on the website.
2. The selection of the ordered Goods by the Customer is made by adding them to the basket.
3. When placing the Order - until the button confirming the submission of the Order is pressed - the Customer has the option of modifying the entered data and the selected Goods. To do this, follow the messages displayed to the Customer and the information available on the website.
4. After the Customer provides all the necessary data, a summary of the placed Order will be displayed. The summary of the placed Order will include, among others: description of selected goods or services, unit prices of goods, total price, information on the discount granted, the value of the order and all other costs, including delivery costs, as well as the delivery address, invoice details and the selected form of payment.
5. In order to send an Order, it is necessary to accept the content of the Regulations, provide personal data marked as mandatory and press the button: "Order with obligation to pay". Placing an order each time requires prior reading of the Regulations and acceptance of its terms as binding.
6. After placing the order, the Customer will receive a confirmation of the conclusion of the distance contract on a durable medium to the e-mail address provided, also containing the applicable content of the Regulations. The contract is considered concluded upon receipt of the confirmation of the Order by the Seller.
7. In the event of unavailability of some of the Goods covered by the Order or the delivery time exceeding 14 days, the Customer will be immediately informed about it without confirming the conclusion of the distance contract and may decide on the method of order fulfillment (acceptance of the indicated delivery time; order fulfillment in relation to some Goods; cancellation of the order in whole).
8. In the absence of receipt of confirmation of the conclusion of a distance contract on a durable medium to the e-mail address provided by the Customer or failure to receive information about the unavailability of some of the Goods within 24 hours of placing the order, the Customer should immediately contact the Seller.
9. The sales contract is concluded in English, and its integral part are the provisions of these Regulations to the extent that they are not contradictory to the sales contract itself.
10. Recording, securing and sharing the order data and the Regulations takes place in the form of a message sent to the e-mail address provided by the Customer. Customers who have set up an Account in the Online Store have additional access to their previous orders as part of the functionality of the Online Store.
1. The delivery of the Goods is limited to the area of Canada and takes place to the address indicated by the Customer when placing the Order. Delivery of Goods outside of Canada takes place by individual arrangements between the Seller and the Customer.
2. The delivery of the ordered Goods is carried out via a courier. For logistical reasons, the Seller does not offer the possibility of personal collection of the Order in his stationary store or any other place.
3. As a rule, delivery is free of charge, regardless of the payment method chosen by the Customer and the place of delivery. Any additional delivery costs may be indicated as an option when placing the Order and will require the Customer's approval.
4. The delivery time is up to 23 working days, with the production time up to 11 working days, and the delivery time up to 7 working days. The delivery time is counted from the date of confirmation of the Customer's Order by the Seller.
5. If the Customer is a Consumer, the Seller bears the risk of accidental damage or loss of the Goods during transport. The Customer should inspect the shipment in time and in the manner accepted for shipments of this type. If the Goods are delivered with obvious damage or losses during transport, the Customer should, if possible, report such a defect to the carrier (courier) and the Seller as soon as possible and perform other actions necessary to determining the possible liability of the carrier, in particular by confirming the condition of the shipment. A delay in reporting such a defect does not cause any negative consequences for the Customer, in particular it does not affect the Seller's liability for non-conformity of the goods with the contract (point IX of the Regulations). However, a faster notification of noticed damage caused during transport will allow the Seller to recognize the complaint faster and will enable the Seller to pursue its own claims against the carrier or transport insurer.
VI. Prices and payment methods

VII. Cancellation and change of contract specifications
