8. Creation of contract
The offers on this website constitute a non-binding invitation for the customer to order services and/or products from Windwerk. By placing an order on this website, including accepting these GTC, the customer makes a legally binding offer to enter into a contract. Windwerk will send an automatic confirmation by email, which confirms that Windwerk has received the customer’s offer. Orders placed are binding upon the customer. Unless otherwise stated, there is no right of return or withdrawal. The contract is formed as soon as Windwerk sends a declaration of acceptance by email, wherein the dispatch of the services or products ordered is confirmed.
Orders for services and/or goods are only confirmed once full payment has been received (exception: delivery on account) and in case of available capacity to provide the service and/or deliver the goods. If, after conclusion of the contract, it is determined that the service and/or goods ordered cannot be provided or cannot be provided in full, Windwerk is entitled to withdraw from the entire contract or part of the contract. If Windwerk has already received the customer’s payment, this amount will be reimbursed to the customer. If payment has not yet been made, the customer is released from any obligation to pay. Windwerk is not obliged to provide any replacement delivery in case of the termination of a contract.
9. Payment options and reservation of ownership
The payment options specified during the ordering process are available to the customer. Windwerk reserves the right to exclude customers from using specific payment options without giving a reason or to require advance payment. In the event that a payment by the customer is overdue, Windwerk may charge interest of 5% per year plus a reminder fee of up to CHF 20 per reminder sent. Goods delivered to the customer remain the property of Windwerk until full payment has been received.
10. Cancellation or deferral of a service
