LegalTerms & Conditions
Safe Buy Service Policy
Terms & Conditions
These terms of business (the "Terms & Conditions") apply to and govern all use of Deconet's web site (the "Site") and apply to all services that are provided through the Site, including but not limited to all sales of goods offered for sale on this Site (the "Item").
1. Deconet's Terms & Conditions
The Site provides a marketplace for Buyers to purchase Items online, from Sellers that Deconet have authorized as Sellers on Deconet. Any sales of Items are made between the Buyer and the Seller. The role of Deconet is limited to making the Site available, maintaining the Site, and facilitating the sales transaction. Deconet is thereby an intermediary and not an agent neither for the Buyer nor the Seller for any purpose.
The Site is designed for Buyers accustomed to buying Items based on photographs. Such Buyers are aware that Items are not new, unless otherwise stated, or in perfect condition, and may require touch-up or repairs prior to use, and that the available information about the Items may be limited. Due to the speed at which many Items sell, it is not possible for Deconet to verify any information provided by the Seller.
It is important that the information provided by the Buyer in the purchase process and on "My Deconet" is correct and it is the Buyer's own responsibility, to ensure that the basic Buyer information is correct and complete, including the e-mail address and other details. Buyers can always check this information on 'My Deconet', where any necessary corrections can be made.
2. The Sale and the Sales Process.
By clicking on the "Buy now" button, the Buyer makes a purchase of the Seller's Item, which may not be cancelled or revoked by the Buyer.
Hereby, the Buyer accepts that Deconets Terms & Conditions shall govern the sale agreement between the Seller and the Buyer. The Buyer irrevocably agrees to pay the Total Purchase Price. The "Total Purchase Price" is the price agreed to on the Site and includes:
(i) the agreed price of the Item (the "Purchase Price") and
(ii) sales tax, use tax, VAT, Internet sales tax and/or any other taxes or levies that the Seller or Deconet is required to collect from the Buyer under applicable law at the time of sale and
(iii) when applicable, the Deconet Safe Buy Service fee.
The Buyer irrevocably authorizes Deconet to charge the Total Purchase Price and, when applicable Deconet Safe Buy Service fee, on the Buyer's credit card by using the credit card information provided by the Buyer.
If the credit card company for any reason rejects the Buyer's credit card payment, the sales contract will terminate with immediate effect and the Buyer may not collect or attempt to collect the Item. The Buyer waives any claim against Deconet and the Seller arising from a cancelled sale.
If for any reason the Buyer cancels a payment made by credit card or any other means of payment without first receiving approval from Deconet, Buyer shall be liable to pay the Total Purchase Price and, when applicable Deconet Safe Buy Service fee, and any related costs including storage and handling fees if applicable. Additionally, Buyer shall be responsible for any costs associated with collecting any amount due to Deconet including legal fees and costs related to currency fluctuations.
Deconet accepts responsibility for the proper use of a Buyer's funds deposited and disbursed through the Site, but does not accept any responsibility for any circumstances relating to the Seller or the Items, including but not limited to any negligence, misconduct or other inappropriate or unbusinesslike behaviour by a Seller in connection with any sales transaction entered into on or through the Site.
2a. Collection of Item.
If the buyer and seller have made other arrangement regarding matters stated in this clause (2a), those shall prevail. If the buyer has chosen Deconet Safe Buy Service the provision regarding collection shall prevail.
A purchased Item is available for collection at the Seller's premises directly after confirmation from the Seller. The Buyer must collect the Item from the Seller no later then fifteen (15) days from the sale, after which the funds from the sale is released to the Seller. The Buyer must present a printed receipt for the purchase of the Item in order to collect the Item, and the Seller is entitled to hand over the Item to any person that presents such receipt.
Once an Item has been collected from the Seller, either by the Buyer or on behalf of the Buyer, or upon the Buyer's failure to collect the Item within 15 days from the sale, Deconet has the right to release the funds to the Seller, and shall have no further responsibilities in relation to the sale of an Item.
3. Delivery, Transfer of Title and Risk of Loss.
If the buyer and seller have made other arrangement regarding matters stated in this clause (3), that arrangement shall prevail. If the buyer has chosen the Deconet Safe Buy Service the provision regarding delivery shall prevail.
The Item is delivered when the Buyer or any person on behalf of the Buyer, collect the Item from the Seller. The risk of loss of and damage to each Item will pass to the Buyer upon the collection of an Item by the Buyer or on any person on the Buyer's behalf.
The title to an Item is transferred to the Buyer upon the collection of the Item by the Buyer or on its behalf. The Seller has represented to Deconet that the Seller is the sole owner of each Item the Seller is offering for sale on the Site or that the Seller is duly authorized by the owner of the Item to sell the Item and that the Seller will transfer the title of the Item to the Buyer free from any claims by third parties upon collection of the Item.
Any complaints or claims that the Buyer may have regarding the purchase of an Item shall be addressed directly to and handled by the Seller.
If the buyer and seller have made other arrangements regarding matters stated in this clause (4), that shall prevail. If the buyer has chosen the Deconet Safe Buy Service the provision regarding shipping etc shall prevail.
Arrangement of collection, shipping, packaging and obtaining of insurance coverage of a sold Item is the sole responsibility of the Buyer and the Buyer shall bear all costs for this.
Deconet may offer to assist the Buyer with the shipping process, including facilitating information and payment between Buyer and shipper as well as managing and monitoring shipping status on behalf of the Buyer.
To assist Buyers in obtaining information on shipping costs, Deconet may request shipping quotes from several shipping companies and at its own discretion, post the best quote to various destinations. This information is posted for reference only.
Any recommendation of a shipper and other services related to the shipping process is provided by Deconet for the Buyer's convenience only. Deconet shall have no liability whatsoever for providing any assistance to the Buyer in respect of the shipping process and the Buyer shall not hold Deconet responsible for the shipping process.
5. Taxes and Import/Export Duties.
The Buyer is entirely responsible for paying all taxes and duties and all transactional taxes or levies related to the purchase of each Item (collectively, "Taxes"). The Buyer shall pay the Seller such Taxes as the Seller is required to collect, but failure of the Seller to collect the Taxes will not relieve the Buyer of its obligation. It is the Buyer's responsibility to establish and/or document any applicable exemption from Taxes. The Buyer must determine, pay, collect, remit and report to the appropriate taxing authority the correct amount of all export and/or import taxes or duties payable upon export of the Item from its country of origin and import into any other country.
6. Import/Export Restrictions.
Some of the Items sold on the Deconet site may require cultural, customs and endangered species permits for export from the country where they are located and import into the Buyer's country. Items may also be subject to a right of the country, from which they are exported, to purchase the Items from the Buyer, sometimes called a "right of pre-emption". Neither the Seller nor Deconet makes any representation, gives any warranty or shall have any liability to the Buyer in respect of the requirement for, or the availability, or issuance of valid export or import permits or the existence or exercise of pre-emption rights to purchase by governmental or regulatory authorities anywhere.
