General Terms and Conditions

1. Cost of delivery

Orders placed electronically are binding even if they have not been signed electronically or personally. Incoming orders are normally dealt with within five work days. Delivery times cannot always be guaranteed.

If you would like us to meet a particular delivery date, please note this in the box “Notes to do with this order” in Step 2 when placing an order. We will in-form you shortly afterwards whether the requested delivery date can be met.

If a text has not yet been published or is temporarily out of stock, we will retain the order and then post it once it is published or can be delivered.

If delivery is delayed, you will be informed (if possible) by e-mail about the ex-pected delivery date as quickly as possible.

If you hear from us that there are problems with delivery, you will probably be entitled to cancel your order by writing to our e-mail address: e-shop@wsl.ch.

2. Return of goods

Deliveries may only be returned after contacting E-Shop (e.g. by telephone, letter, fax, or e-mail to e-shop@wsl.ch) if E-Shop has agreed in writing to the goods being returned. If you return goods within 10 days in prime and saleable condition, you will be entitled to a refund in the form of credit. For copyright reasons, however, software, multimedia-products and DVDs may not be ex-changed. Items with production defects or faulty deliveries that are returned within 10 days will be replaced by a defect-free item only so long as the item is indeed a WSL product. Please always cite your customer number, invoice number and reason for returning the product. You return goods at your own risk, i.e. you will be liable if they fail to arrive or are damaged.

3. Liability exclusion

WSL cannot be held liable for goods produced by third parties but ordered through us. The purchaser must contact the manufacturer directly. Faulty WSL products will be replaced by defect-free products only if the damage was not the result of improper handling. WSL is not liable for indirect damage.

4. Prices

All prices include the prescribed VAT. Please note that prices are subject to change. The price in your order is binding.

5. Security and data protection

Your personal data is in safe hands with us and will not be passed on or made available for anyone outside WSL/SLF to use. All the details you give us are needed to ensure you can purchase from us comfortably and securely. If you place an order, we will need your name, your home address, your e-mail ad-dress and the addresses for delivery and for billing. We will only need your credit card details and expiry date if you pay for an order by credit card. We do not store details about credit cards, so these must be provided each time you purchase something.

6. Liability

In cases of doubt the German version of the General Terms and Conditions applies.
