Orders placed through the e-commerce service, engage the customer from the moment the order overview is confirmed by them.

Any order implies acceptance of these.

The prices on the catalogue are in Swiss francs. VAT not included. Other currencies (Euro, Dollar) can be chosen by the buyer, but a single currency will be used for the final order. Currency can be changed during the purchasing process, the entire order in the cart being then converted into the new currency.

In case of telephone or verbal order, the buyer causes the risk of misunderstanding and erroneous or incomplete deliveries. We therefore prefer taking orders from the Internet (shop), e-mail or fax. For the latter (e-mail and fax), the buyer has the possibility to notify a mistake within three days. After this period, the goods shall be deemed accepted.

Delivery times specified in our order confirmations are only indicative and possible delays do not entitle the buyer to cancel the order, refuse the goods or claim compensation.

Delivery times are indicative, Gedane can not be held responsible for any delay in delivery of the goods by the service provider.
Shipping charges will be billed at cost (minimum Frs 10.00). For private customers, packages are sent by post, DHL or other appropriate driver.

Orders exceeding SFr 300.00 (7.6% VAT, not included) will be free of shipping costs (for Switzerland only).

All our goods are sold at the buyer's own risk whatever the means of transportation, free or postage due. The client must therefore ensure the products they ordered against all risks.

The consignee who takes delivery of the goods has the responsibility to verify its condition on arrival and take any measure against the carrier themselves. Please contact us before any possible return of the products. No returns will be accepted without prior approval from our services.

In case of returned merchandise due to the buyer's mistake, costs of the restocking may be deducted from the refund.
Given the overhead costs incurred, any order below 50 Swiss francs VAT not included, will cannot be taken in account.
For our new customers, orders exceeding 1,000 francs will be validated by our services only after a deposit of 50% of the total amount. 

Prices on the catalogue are fixed but can change without notice due to currency or seasonal fluctuations (production costs), scarcity of certain products, etc..

Unless stipulated otherwise, our invoices are payable within 10 days. The deadlines indicated on our invoices are to be met. Failure to pay our bills on the due date will automatically and without prior notice lead to the addition of default interests, calculated on the base rate applicable to short-term credits, plus 4% per year from the due date and ongoing until the date of actual payment. Recall costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the customer.
