OFFER AND CONTRACT
The offering of our products on-line as well as in newsletters, catalogues and other ads are non-binding and subject to change without notice. The display of our products in these media does not represent a legally binding offer, but is only an invitation for the customer to make an offer.
In case of an order in our online shop, the customer makes a binding offer once he has clicked on the button “place order” for all items in the shopping cart. Before delivery, we enable the customer to review and, if necessary, correct the order regarding its regularity

and the data of value and quantity. After sending the order, the customer receives an order confirmation, which is not to be considered our accepting of the contract. The contract is concluded through sending of a separate order confirmation within two working days or via delivery of the goods.

 

Chug Express SL reserves the right to refuse to perform the service promised if it becomes apparent after concluding the contract that the goods are not available although a corresponding contractual transaction has been concluded. In such a case, the customer shall be notified immediately. Potential considerations, which have already been provided, shall be reimbursed without delay. Potential considerations will be credited to the customer and, if desired, reimbursed. Further customer claims are excluded.
