  3. order and conclusion of contract

    The presentation of the products in the webshop is not a legally binding offer by Harrel, but merely an offer. The customer can place desired products in the shopping cart without obligation and view the contents of the shopping cart and remove products from the shopping cart at any time. If the customer wants to purchase the products placed in the shopping cart, he can make a corresponding order.

    1. Guest order and customer account

      Before placing an order, the customer has the choice of ordering as a guest or creating a customer account. A registration is not necessary for an order. A registration enables you to order for future orders after entering your e-mail address and password, without having to enter your address data again.The customer is responsible for the confidential treatment of the account and password. If you want to order without registration, you can enter your address data after clicking the “Guest order” button. The customer must state his first and last name, his billing address and, if different, a delivery address. And his e-mail address, from which he can receive, read, store and print e-mails from Harrel. By placing an order in the webshop, which is completed by clicking on the “BUY NOW” button, the customer submits an offer to conclude a purchase contract. The receipt of the order will be confirmed to the customer by Harrel via e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the customer. This confirmation is not yet an acceptance of the contract offer of the customer. The contract between the customer and Harrel is only concluded with the delivery of the ordered goods, which the customer receives a shipping confirmation via e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the customer.
    2. Value added tax agreement with corporate customers

      If the customer is registered for sales tax in a member state of the European Union and has received a sales tax identification number from a member state of the European Union, the customer can provide this sales tax identification number and use it for purchases on harrel-rs.com subject to the conditions listed below. The VAT identification number should only be transmitted if all the conditions listed below have been noted and accepted. After checking the VAT identification number, our systems determine whether VAT is due on the purchases and automatically issue a valid invoice in accordance with the EU VAT Directive and local VAT regulations. If no sales tax is charged on purchases, the customer must note that he is responsible, where applicable, for meeting his sales tax obligations under the EU VAT Directive and local sales tax regulations.The customer assures that the sales tax identification number and the decision on the assignment of a sales tax identification number, which he indicates on harrel-rs.com, belongs to the company he operates and that this company is registered for sales tax in a member state of the European Union. The customer affirms that all transactions via the customer account on harrel-rs.com are business-related transactions of the company assigned to the sales tax identification number and the sales tax certificate that the customer provides to Harrel. Customer represents and warrants that the sales tax identification number, the notice of assignment of a sales tax identification number and all other information provided by Customer are true, accurate and current, and that such information stored by Harrel will be updated immediately in the event of changes. All information, including the sales tax identification number, will be collected, processed and managed in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in Harrel’s Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy.Harrel reserves the right, to the extent permitted by law, to request further information from the customer or government agencies and agencies and to obtain confirmation of the validity of the account information (including the sales tax identification number and/or sales tax certificate). Customer hereby authorizes Harrel to request and obtain such information from the appropriate governmental authorities and agencies as Harrel deems necessary. In addition, the customer agrees to provide this information to Harrel upon request. Harrel reserves the right to invoice Customer for any unbilled sales tax incurred if Customer has provided a sales tax identification number which is found invalid or unrelated to the Customer’s business data or which the tax authorities determine does not relate to the harrel-rs.com account holder placing the order. The customer hereby grants Harrel the right to charge its credit card or account with this uninvoiced sales tax.You agree to receive invoices electronically. Electronic invoices are provided in PDF format in the My Account section of the website.
