At the end, you can check all the information provided (e.g. name, address, payment method, ordered goods) and correct that information if necessary before placing your order with us by clicking on “Buy now” and thus confirming it.
2.2. By placing your order, you made a binding offer towards us to conclude a contract with you. We may accept this offer by sending you an order confirmation via e-mail or by delivering the ordered goods.

3.1. On the condition that you provide all required data during the order process, you may place orders with us without setting up a personal user account. However, you also have the possibility to set up your personal user account with a password. This means that your personal data will be saved and you need not enter your information again when placing a new order with us. You also have access to the “My account” section which provides a comprehensive overview of your profile, orders which have not yet been delivered, past orders as well as delivery and payment details.

Some orders may contain materials which we consider to be inappropriate or which we are un-willing to combine with our products. While we reserve the right to reject your order for the personalisation of our goods, you agree that you will be exclusively responsible for the commissioned work.
