Ruskovilla Switzerland's terms & conditions

This website is operated by Ruskovilla Switzerland – Schmidt, a company registered under Swiss law, also known under the commercial name ‘Ruskovilla Switzerland’ and whose registered address is at Postfach, 6330 Cham, Switzerland. We sell products to private persons above the age 18 years in Switzerland and in the EU/EEA countries.

The present Terms and Conditions of sale apply to all the orders placed with Ruskovilla Switzerland for all the articles and services proposed by the www.ruskovilla.ch website. Any person ordering a product or service offered for sale on or using Ruskovilla Switzerland’s website hereby fully accepts these Terms and Conditions.

Ruskovilla Switzerland reserves the right to modify at any time the present Terms and Conditions (including prices and shipping fees) without prior notice.

Article 1. Formation of contract

Article 1.1. Conclusion of agreement online

The presentation of the products and services in our webshop (www.ruskovilla.ch) does not constitute a binding offer, but merely an invitation for the customer to make an offer. The customer can place products in the shopping cart without any obligation and correct the information inputted at any time before submitting the binding order by using the correction tools made available for this purpose during the order process.

When a customer sends an order through the webshop, it becomes a binding offer with the intention of concluding a purchase agreement in respect of the products or services in the shopping cart. When a customer places an order, he/she must also accept these present Terms and Conditions in the version in force at the time the order is placed.

Receipt of the order will be confirmed by Ruskovilla Switzerland via e-mail, which indicates the price of order, shipping fee (if any) and ordered items. Receiving an order confirmation requires an e-mail address registered when placing the order. The customer is responsible for providing accurate and complete information during the registration and the order process. This confirmation of receipt does not yet mean that the offer to enter into a contract has been accepted. It merely serves to inform the customer that the order has been received by Ruskovilla Switzerland. A contract is only formed when Ruskovilla Switzerland issues a declaration of acceptance, which is sent in a separate email (order confirmation or dispatch confirmation), or when the order is dispatched at the very latest.

Ruskovilla Switzerland reserves the right to decline an order without giving any reasons. Any payments made before the goods are dispatched and/or the order or dispatch is confirmed take place on a conditional basis. If the purchase agreement is not formed any payments already made will be refunded, albeit without interest.

Article 1.2. Conclusion of agreement by email or letter

Ruskovilla Switzerland also accepts orders by email or letter. After the order has been sent by email or letter, the customer may receive an email, which does not yet constitute acceptance of the agreement but merely serves to record the fact that the order has been received. Acceptance of the order and the associated conclusion of the purchase agreement only take place by means of a declaration of acceptance issued by Ruskovilla Switzerland, which is sent in a separate email (confirmation of order or confirmation of dispatch), at the very latest when the order is dispatched. Additionally, with regard to the conclusion of the purchase agreement, reference is made to the provisions of section 1.1 above which fully apply.

Article 1.3. Conclusion of agreement by phone or in person

The customer may also make an offer to conclude a purchase agreement by telephone or in person. Ruskovilla Switzerland will explicitly draw the customer’s attention to the application of these Terms and Conditions (incl. explicit details about where these Terms and Conditions can be found). After the order has been placed the customer receives an email, which does not constitute acceptance of the agreement. Acceptance of the order and the associated conclusion of the purchase agreement only take place by means of a declaration of acceptance by Ruskovilla Switzerland, which is sent in a separate email (confirmation of order or confirmation of dispatch), at the very latest when the order is dispatched. Additionally, with regard to the conclusion of the purchase agreement, reference is made to the provisions of section 1.1 above which fully apply.
