Terms of service
General Terms and Conditions (GTC) for purchases made on humanbeans.ch
Below we would like to present our general terms and conditions governing the processing and execution of your purchases. On the humanbeans.ch site we offer you the purchase of products from Humanbeans partners.
1. CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT AND DELIVERY OF THE PRODUCTS
1.1 On humanbeans.ch the contracts are concluded exclusively in English. When purchasing products from Humanbeans partners, your contractual partner is:
Rue de Hesse 6, 1204 Genève – CH.
1.2 By clicking on the “buy now” button you place a binding order for the items contained in the virtual cart. Once the order has been sent, we will immediately send you an e-mail with the order confirmation. The contract is concluded when the customer receives the order confirmation. Orders in relation to which the customer has opted for advance payment (reservation) will be sent as soon as the total payment of the purchase price and any shipping costs will be received. We therefore invite you to pay the price as soon as the order confirmation is received and in any case within the following 7 days.
1.3 Where the products subject to the order are not correct or delivered in time, there is no obligation for us to deliver the ordered goods. The assumption is that we are not responsible for the unavailability of the goods and that we have informed you promptly about the situation. In any case, if the ordered products are not available we will refund any sum already paid without any delay.
1.4 We do not assume the risk of procurement in relation to the products that form the order in question. This also applies to orders relating to goods for which only the type and characteristics of the products (fungible goods) are described. We are only obliged to deliver what is available in stock and to our suppliers. We deliver worldwide. If the delivery time is expressed in working days, they are understood as all those included between Monday and Friday included, with the exclusion of any public holidays.
2. PRICES, SHIPPING COSTS AND EXPRESS DELIVERY
2.1 The prices indicated at the time the order is sent are considered valid. The prices indicated are final and include VAT (0% at the moment).
2.2 Shipping costs are charged to the customer unless specific indications.
2.3 Express delivery is only available for some products. When sending the order, you can view, if available, the option to opt for express shipping and the related additional costs.
2.4 For the sending of particularly bulky, heavy or precious products, different shipping costs may apply, which at the time of sale we indicate on the product detail page and on the order page of each individual product.
3.1 In principle, as a payment method, we accept credit card and Paypal. We reserve the right to refuse certain payment methods and to request different payment methods. Keep in mind that any costs associated with the transaction are your responsibility.
3.2 In case of purchase made with a credit card, the charge will take place at the time the order is shipped.
4. RIGHT OF RETURN FOR HUMANBEANS PRODUCTS
For all purchases of products of Humanbeans partners made on the site humanbeans.ch, Humanbeans grants an optional return right equal to 30 days from receipt of the goods. After that you can withdraw from the contract by simply returning the goods to us no later than 30 days from the date of receipt (expiration date on the day of receipt of the goods). A timely shipment is sufficient for compliance with the deadline. The prerequisite for exercising the right of return is however that the goods have been brought only as evidence, as normally happens in a shop, and that they are returned in complete and intact status in the original packaging. The right of return does not exist in case of purchase of gift vouchers, if this is already registered in the user account, nor for contracts for the supply of items not suitable for a return because of their properties (for example cosmetic products already opened, for hygienic reasons).
Please send the goods back to:
Rue de Hesse 6, 1204 Genève – CH
For payments made through Paypal or credit card, the refund will be made to the Paypal account or credit card.
