The customer is required to provide details requested on the order form (name, address etc.), truthfully and as complete as possible; any damage or expense resulting from false or incorrect information provided by the customer becomes the sole responsibility of the customer.

2 Contract and Order

The purchase contract is concluded with bgs artMedia e.K..

Products presented by the bgs artMedia e.K. via the internet or other media do not constitute an order but are only a request for the customer to place such an order, which the bgs artMedia e.K. may in return accept or refuse without any justification.

The customer is bound to the submitted order for a period of four weeks, this period starts on the day of order. From the day of the order, and until the expiration of the 4 weeks period, any order remains binding for a customer who, as a result, shall pay any outstanding invoice and accept any item(s) ordered.

The customers request may not be accepted by the bgs artMedia e.K.. The delivery of the ordered item(s) to the post office, parcel service or other delivery service representatives for delivery to the customer, is to be seen as the acceptance of the order by the bgs artMedia e.K..

The customers requests will only be accepted based on the price list and the terms and conditions that are valid on the day of ordering.
