1) Applicability

The online shop of the company Makaro GmbH operates under the domain www.makarojewelry.com. For all business relationships between Makaro GmbH and you the General Terms and Conditions are applicable explicitly for each contract, at the time of the contract’s conclusion. Makaro GmbH does not accept deviating conditions, unless an agreement has been explicitly stated by a managing director of Makaro GmbH in writing. By placing an order you agree with these terms and conditions, they are thus part of the individual sales contract. Changes to our Terms and Conditions are effective upon posting on the website www.makarojewelry.com.

 

2) Conclusion of a contract

If you place an order in our online shop, this represents a binding contract offer to us. After placing your order we will send you an email which confirms your order has reached us and serves as a receipt for your purchase at Makaro GmbH. This order confirmation contains all the details of your order (e.g. ordered products, prices, delivery and payment conditions). The receipt of your order confirmation can also be regarded as acceptance of your order on the part of Makaro GmbH. Thus, the purchase contract has been concluded.

We, however, reserve the right to withdraw the acceptance of the contract up to 24 hours after sending the confirmation email. This can be the case if the goods ordered exceeds the domestic quantity, or are not available for any reason.

 

3) Right of Withdrawal

3.1. Right of withdrawal for Austrian customers 

3.1.1. Cancellation right

You can withdraw your contract with Makaro GmbH within 14 days without stating any reasons. The period begins upon receipt of this instruction in writing, but not before the goods have reached you. The day of the contract or receipt by the customer does not count here.

The withdrawal can be requested in writing within the withdrawal period by email to info@makarojewelry.com.

More information about the return will be given via email.

For exceptions to the right of withdrawal see 3.3.

 

3.1.2. Consequences of withdrawal

In the case of an effective cancellation the mutually received benefits have to be returned including any applicable benefits. (Exceptions see item 3.3). In case you can’t return the goods totally or only in deteriorated condition (for example with signs of wear, damaged or dirty) you will be held responsible for an appropriate compensation.

A deterioration that is due solely to a brief inspection of the goods is no reason for a compensation.

Returns due to an effective withdrawal are free of shipping charges within Austria. Makaro GmbH does under no circumstances accept packages requiring COD or other fees in relation to your return though. The package must be sent without COD and clearly marked with "Returned Goods" to prevent from any additional fees. We therefore strongly recommend using only the original return label you'll receive via email as a reply to your request of withdrawal. To request a reimbursement of the return shipping costs, the postal receipt must be sent to Makaro GmbH via email or post within 14 days after sending the return package. If the receipt or a copy is not transferred to Makaro GmbH within 14 days of sending the parcel, the customer waives his right for reimbursement of the shipping costs.

The reimbursement of completely undamaged and unused goods will be issued within 30 days. The period begins with the receipt of the goods by us. As long as the goods are not received by us, we make use of our right of retention.

 

3.2. Right of Withdrawal for Customers from outside Austria (Germany, EU and international)

3.2.1. Cancellation right

You can withdraw your contract with Makaro GmbH within 14 days without stating any reasons. The period begins upon receipt of this instruction in writing, but not before the goods have reached you. For customers within the EU the period also doesn’t begin before fulfilling our obligations according to 246 § 2 iVm § 1, 1 and 2 EGBGB as well as § 312e Abs 1, 1 BGB in combination with § 246 § 3 EGBGB. The day of the contract or receipt by the customer does not count here.

More information about the return will be given via email.

For exceptions to the right of withdrawal see 3.3.

Please note that Makaro GmbH is not responsible for any shipping costs related to a withdrawal from any country outside Austria.

The package must be sent without COD and clearly marked with "Returned Goods" to prevent from any additional fees. We therefore strongly recommend using only the original return label you'll receive via email as a reply to your request of withdrawal.

3.3 Exceptions to the Right of Withdrawal

In the following cases, no right of withdrawal is applicable:

- For articles, which are sold under the label "Sale" at a reduced price.

- For goods which are produced according to customer specifications and that are clearly tailored to personal needs (for example, all the products from our "Create Your Own" line, products with special lengths or special designs out of existing components)

- For goods which are not suitable for a return due to their condition.

The goods need to be packed properly before being returned by the customer. The customer is liable for lost items due to improper packaging or insufficient closing of the package. We strongly recommend registered or insured shipping with a tracking number since the customer will be held responsible in case of loss of the package by the transportation service. For entrepreneurs or companies the right of withdrawal never applies.

 

4) Prices

On our website, all prices are stated in euros. The stated prices include VAT for the respective shipping country. Any shipping costs valid at the time of order are not included in the price and will be added at checkout. If any export or import duties arise in line with shipment, they lie within the responsibility of the customer.

For deliveries to countries outside the EU (for example Switzerland or USA) VAT is not charged, which means the net price will be stated on the invoice. The import turnover tax must be paid additionally upon delivery by the recipient.

In case of a delay in payment, we reserve the right to demand additional charges.

 

5) Payment Options

For the payment of your order you can choose between various payment methods:

  • Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, American Express)

Our system guarantees 100% secure transactions: any credit card information or your account data will always be transmitted via SSL encryption.

6) Shipping/ Shipping Costs

We deliver worldwide to any country. The delivery will be made to your stated address - except in the case of another agreement. All information on availability and delivery time are only guidelines and are not binding or guaranteed by Makaro GmbH. If the ordered product is unavailable, we reserve the right to cancel the contract and not deliver it. In this case, you will be informed immediately.
