2.2. The Buyer submits an order for the Goods to the Seller, using the form published on the website of the Internet store by sending the completed order form via www.morex.cz, www.pedig-pouti.cz.

Such a concluded Purchase Contract can only be changed or cancelled by agreement between the Parties. The Seller is not liable for errors caused by data transfer.

2.4. When the ordered Goods are not in stock, the Seller shall immediately inform the Buyer; if the Buyer does not accept the notified delivery term of the Goods, or no agreement on the delivery of alternative Goods is made, the Buyer is entitled to withdraw from the Purchase Contract. When the ordered Goods are not in stock and the Seller is not able to provide their delivery (which the Buyer shall also be notified of), both Parties are entitled to withdraw from the Purchase Contract. When the price of the Goods in the Internet store is obviously wrong without explicitly stating that it is a special offer or discount, the Purchase Contract shall not be concluded, even when the confirmation of the order is sent; in this case, the Buyer will be contacted and the potential purchase of such Goods will be arranged individually.

2.5. The Buyer acknowledges that the Seller is not required to conclude the Purchase Contract, namely with entities who have substantially violated the Purchase Contract before (including the Terms of Trade).

2.6. The Buyer can withdraw from the Purchase Contract (cancel the order) after the order has been completed and confirmed by e-mail, until the acceptance of the Goods, for example, by sending an e-mail to morex@post.cz. For such withdrawal, the Buyer may also use the Seller’s form for withdrawal from the Purchase Contract, available for download on the website of the Internet store. If the Buyer has already paid the purchase price, the received financial funds will be immediately returned. If the Goods have already been shipped, and if the Buyer chose a different than the cheapest method of shipping offered by the Seller, the Seller shall refund the Buyer with an amount corresponding with the cheapest shipping method available.

Overview of possible methods of delivery and their prices in this link: Shipping and payment

3.1. The purchase prices are stated including VAT. VAT will not be charged to buyers with valid VAT payer registration with a place of business and point of delivery abroad, both within and outside EU. The Buyer has to prove to the Seller that they meet this condition, and the place of registration of the Buyer has to agree with the data on registration published on the website of the VIES system.

The purchase price is considered paid when the entire amount according to the Purchase Contract is credited to the Seller’s account, or when it is paid in cash at the Seller’s cash register.

3.2. The Seller will require advance payments from customers – entrepreneurs who have ordered Goods from the Seller with cash on delivery within one year and did not accept the Goods from the carrier; in this case, the Goods will not be delivered when the Buyer fails to pay in advance. Due to the aforementioned, such a customer will be asked to pay for the Goods by wire transfer even when they choose cash on delivery in the order, and the Goods will be shipped after the price of the Goods is credited to the Seller’s account; if the purchase price is not paid within a reasonable period, the Seller is entitled to withdraw from the Purchase Contract.

3.3. The Seller usually fulfils orders within 3 business days. The usual delivery term for buyers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia is the following business day after the acceptance by the contractual carrier. It cannot be considered binding. If the shipment is delayed, the Buyer can get more information at: www.geis-group.cz/cs/sledovani-zasilky

3.4. The delivery time to other destinations is individual and the Buyer can get more information at: www.geis-group.cz

3.5. The point of personal pick-up is at the Seller’s warehouse at Nádražní 481, Morkovice - Slížany, Postcode 768 33. When picking up Goods that are not paid for in cash at pick-up, the Buyer has to submit a document at the warehouse showing that the Goods have been paid in full. When the Goods are collected by someone else than the Buyer, the person has to provide a valid identity card and a power of attorney from the Buyer with the name of the authorised person. 

4. Withdrawal from the Purchase Contract without Giving Reason

4.1. Under Section 1829, Art. 1 of the Civil Code, the Buyer is entitled to withdraw from the Purchase Contract without giving reason within 14 days after the acceptance of the Goods. The withdrawal can be delivered to the Seller to the address of the place of business, or by e-mail to morex@post.cz. The withdrawal period is maintained when the Buyer sends a notification to the Seller that they are withdrawing from the contract during that period. The Buyer can use the withdrawal form available for download on the website of the Internet store of the Seller. In case of doubts, the Buyer has to prove that the contract has been concluded with the Seller. The withdrawal completely cancels the Purchase Contract.

4.2 When the Buyer withdraws from the contract without unnecessary delay, the Buyer shall send the Goods with complete accessories to the Seller’s address, no later than within 14 days after the withdrawal. The Buyer shall wrap the Goods in packaging suitable for shipping fragile Goods to prevent any damage to the Goods. The Buyer bears the costs related to the return of the Goods after the withdrawal from the Purchase Contract, even when the Goods cannot be returned by the usual postal method due to its character.

The Seller shall refund the Buyer for the paid purchase price (including the price paid for packaging, payment and shipping of the Goods) within 14 days after the withdrawal from the contract in the same way as it was received from the Buyer, usually by wire transfer to the account stated in the withdrawal from the contract. If the Buyer chose other than the cheapest method of shipping that the Seller offers, the Seller shall refund the Buyer with an amount corresponding to the cheapest method of shipping. The Seller is not required to return the received financial funds to the Buyer until the Buyer has returned the Goods, or proves that the Goods have been sent to the Seller.

4.4. The failure to accept the Goods on the side of the Buyer is also considered to be withdrawal from the contract.

4.5. If the value of the Goods decreases due to handling the Goods in a way other than required to get acquainted with the character and properties of the Goods, including its functionality, the Seller shall be entitled to compensation of such damage in moneys. In this case, the Seller is entitled to set off their title to compensation of damage against the refund of the purchase price to the Buyer after withdrawal – the Buyer thus receives a refund of the purchase price reduced by the corresponding amount.

4.6. The Buyer acknowledges that under Section 1837 of the Civil Code it is not possible to withdraw from the contract on the delivery of the Goods modified according to the Buyer’s wishes or for the Buyer, as well as any perishable Goods or Goods that have been irretrievably mixed with other Goods, and from the contract on delivery of Goods in closed packaging that the Buyer removed from the packaging and that cannot be returned for hygienic reasons.
