4.4 Delivery costs/ customs
Shipping costs are calculated individually according to destination (delivery zone), shippin method, weight and customs fees and are therefore only shown before the order is completed. For foreign deliveries outside of the EU via courier service, a customs charge is added as a percentage of the value of the goods. This depends on the applicable percentages of the respective destinations. This will not incur additional costs for the recipient of the goods. Example: USA = value of goods from 150.00 Swiss francs.

Delivery is dependent on the order received, weekday, destination and shipping method. It is usually carried out within 2-8 working days. Delivery dates cannot be guaranteed. A longer delivery period is to be expected over public holidays. We recommend that you submit your order in plenty of time. Longer package delivery times occur during holidays (Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Christmas). Set delivery times are only indicative. Delivery delays such as acts of God, traffic jams, unusual occurrences or unforeseeable delays by customs authorities etc. are not liable and do not entitle the buyer to cancel the purchase nor to claim damages.

4.6 Delivery times and subject to availability
Information on the delivery periods is non-binding and should be understood as a guideline. In principle, delivery takes place within the period mentioned in the product description. Extended delivery times due to holidays must be considered. If a longer delivery delay is known or an item is no longer available, the customer will be informed by email. In this case, the customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract and any payments already received will be refunded after the contract has been terminated. Delivery delays and failures do not entitle any claims for damages. Confirmed orders can be cancelled by the shop without incurring any costs due to unforeseen circumstances.

5. Check and complaints
The customer is obliged to check the goods immediately upon receipt for condition and completeness. Any complaints must be communicated within 24 hours of delivery, otherwise the delivery is deemed accepted.
Teuscher Confiserie Zurich shall not be liable for transportation damage or damage resulting from improper storage after acceptance by the customer or their representative.

6. Withdrawal, exchange and right of revocation
Return or exchange of products delivered to the customer completely and undamaged is excluded. The right of revocation pursuant to section 9 remains unaffected. If the customer is a consumer (i.e. a natural person who makes the order for a purpose which cannot be attributed to their commercial or independent professional activity) who lives in the EU, they are entitled to a right of revocation in accordance with legal provisions. If the consumer makes use of their right of withdrawal, they shall pay for the costs of returning the goods. In addition, the right of revocation shall be governed by the regulations which are specified in detail in the revocation notice.

7. Guarantee
The manufacturer’s instructions for use must be carefully read and taken into account before consumption. Liability for indirect damages and consequential damage resulting from use, faulty performance or loss of performance is excluded. The conditions of the manufacturer apply for any claims. Complaints can be made within 5 days of receipt of the delivery. After this date, complaints can no longer be submitted. In the case of a justified complaint, liability is limited to the free replacement of the goods.
Unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing, the guarantee is 24 months. The guarantee begins on the delivery date. The guarantee is void should the defect be due to improper handling, use or storage. Insignificant deviations from the guaranteed properties of the goods do not trigger any warranty rights. The buyer is exclusively entitled to repair or exchange. Replacement and reduction are excluded. Shipping costs of exchanged goods are accepted by the supplier. The decision regarding the exchange of an item lies with the supplier. Claims against the supplier can only be made by the direct buyer. Claims for damages arising from impossibility of performance, breach of contract or from fault at the time of contract conclusion are excluded.

8. Payment

8.2 Retention of title
The goods remain the property of the supplier until full payment has been received.

8.3 Purchase on invoice is only allowed for Swiss/German companies.

9. Instruction for withdrawal
If you are a consumer (i.e. a natural person who makes the order for a purpose that cannot be attributed to their commercial or independent professional activity) living in
the EU and who purchases products via remote communication methods (telephone, email etc), you have the right to revoke this contract within a period of 14 days without giving a reason. The period of revocation shall be 14 days from the date on which you or a representative, who is not the carrier, have taken possession of the goods. In order to exercise your right of revocation, you must inform us (Confiserie Teuscher Zurich, Storchengasse 9, 8001 Zurich, tel +41 44 211 51 53, +41 44 212 29 58, email: info@teuscher-zurich.ch) i.e. a letter, fax or email) about your decision to revoke this contract. In order to keep the revocation period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the end of this period.

9.1 Consequences of revocation
If you revoke this agreement, we will pay you back all the payments we have received from you, including the delivery costs (except for the additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a different type of delivery than the most favourable standard delivery offered by us) within a period of 14 days from the date on which the notice of revocation of this contract has been received by us. For such repayment, we will use the same means of payment as you have used in the original transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in no case will you be charged for these repayment fees. We may refuse repayment until goods are received or until you have proved that you have returned the goods, whichever is earlier.
You must return the goods to us immediately or in any case no later than 14 days from the date on which we were informed of the revocation of contract. The deadline is respected if the goods are sent to us before the end of the 14 day period. You bear the immediate cost of returning the goods.
You shall only be liable for any loss in value of the goods if this loss is attributable to the unnecessary handling of goods regarding the quality, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

9.2 End of the right to revocation
Exclusion of the right to revocation:
The right to revocation does not exist with contracts
a) regarding the supply of goods which are not prefabricated and whose manufacture is subject to an individual selection or purpose by the consumer or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer as well as
b) In the case of contracts for the supply of goods which are likely to deteriorate rapidly or whose expiry date would be quickly exceeded.

10. Data protection
