MOSS.SK s.r.o. operates an online shopping web-portal/webshop at www.moss.sk and its subpages (hereinafter referred to as the “shopping portal”). A third party (hereinafter referred to as the “Purchaser”) has the opportunity to view the goods on the shopping portal pages via this portal. At the same time, the Purchaser has the opportunity to purchase chosen goods under the terms and conditions set out in these General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as the “GTC”) and provided that the purchase order/draft of a Purchase Agreement is accepted by the Seller.
The Seller’s e-mail address is email@example.com

1.2 These GTC govern the legal relations between the MOSS s.r.o. company acting as the Seller and the Purchaser, who expresses interest in purchasing goods at www.moss.sk and its subpages pursuant to the GTC. These legal relations between the Seller and the Purchaser arising from the purchase, the delivery of the goods and the complaints concerning the defects of the goods, are governed, as appropriate, by the provisions of the relevant legislation of the Slovak Republic, depending on their content and the participants in the purchase, in particular by the Commercial Code of the Slovak Republic and the Criminal Code of the Slovak Republic. The obligations of the Parties are also governed by these GTC up until the moment the Purchase Agreement is concluded on the basis of registration of the Purchaser. The mutual relations between the Seller and the Purchaser are governed by the Complaints Policy and Procedure for the online shop www.moss.sk (hereinafter referred to as the “Complaints Policy and Procedure”) referred to in point 4 of the GTC.
1.3 The term Purchase Agreement means an agreement between the Seller and the Purchaser concluded pursuant to Article 2 et seq. of the GTC, the subject-matter of which is the purchase of goods from www.moss.sk.
1.4 The provisions of Article 5 and 6 of the GTC do not apply to a Purchaser who purchases goods for business purposes and not for the purposes of personal consumption. In this case, the liability for the defects of the goods is governed by the provisions of the Commercial Code of the Slovak Republic.
1.5 The information and stock images of the goods displayed on the shopping portal (particularly the availability, price, quantity, and supply) are not updated by the Seller immediately on the webpage. The information regarding the goods published on the shopping portal may not always be correct and complete compared to the actual situation. The indication of an item’s “availability” published on the shopping portal cannot be interpreted as a deadline for the delivery of the goods by the Purchaser. The published indication of an item’s availability is only an indicative, non-binding estimate of the time during which the available inventory of the Seller is expected to sell out. The goods cannot be shown to the Purchaser in advance, it is not always possible to accept the purchase orders and deliver the goods, not even via a third person. The goods delivered via a shopping portal are always limited by the Seller’s current inventory, and ordering more goods and/or delivering the goods after they are sold out is not possible, not even via another person. In certain cases, the Seller will not be able to deliver the products or equivalent products or arrange for the delivery to be made by another Seller for the price, time and quantity that is reasonable with regards to the product, the scope of the product’s advertising and price, especially if a particular case took place pursuant to Article 2.15 of the GTC. The Seller shall always be informed of every such particular case when it is not possible to deliver the goods in a suitable manner, and in the event an agreement has been concluded, each Party has the right to withdraw from the agreement.
2. Purchase order (Ordering Goods/Purchase Agreement/Acts Necessary for the Conclusion of the Agreement)
2.1 The goods are purchased via issuing and sending a purchase order by the Purchaser on the Seller’s shopping portal www.moss.sk (a purchase order made in such a way shall be considered binding and shall be understood as a remote agreement concluded pursuant to Act No. 108/2000 Coll. as amended), and the purchase order of the Purchaser must be approved (accepted) by the Seller in accordance with the GTC; a contractual relationship shall not arise otherwise. If a purchase order is accepted by the Seller pursuant to the GTC, the Seller shall deliver the purchased goods within the delivery period pursuant to Article 4.1 of the GTC.
2.2 The Purchaser may be registered before the goods are selected or during the selection process. The person completing a registration form is obliged to fill in the required information in the mandatory fields of the registration form truthfully. By completing a registration form, the Purchaser grants consent to the processing of his/her personal and other data pursuant to Article 7 et seq. of the GTC and the conditions according to the GTC. In the event of any data changes, the Purchaser is obliged to update the data on the portal without delay when sending a purchase order, since their accuracy, truthfulness, and up-to-dateness affects the delivery of the goods to the Purchaser. Mandatory fields of the registration form are marked with a “*” symbol. The Purchaser is obliged to provide correct, complete and truthful information. The Purchaser’s failure to fulfil these obligations is interpreted to the detriment of the Purchaser. The registration process is successfully completed by assigning a login name and password. The Purchaser is obliged to keep the login name and password generated during the registration process in a safe place and protect it against misuse.
2.3 The Purchaser browses and selects the goods according to the main product categories listed in the left product menu or by clicking on its subcategories or displayed goods.
2.3.1 The Purchaser selects information on the goods according to the published ordering information and he/she adds the product to his/her purchase order by clicking the “Blue square with a white arrow” button. The subsequent brief change of colour to green indicates that the products have been successfully added to the cart. In the event the Purchaser has finished selecting the goods, he/she will click the “Submit Purchase Order” button. Otherwise, he/she may return to the goods selection process by clicking “Step Back”.
2.3.2 In each of these steps, the Purchaser follows guidance instructions and as a rule, each of these steps is completed by clicking “I confirm” in an unspecified graphic form. The Purchaser is obliged to provide complete, truthful and correct information necessary for the correct delivery of the goods. The Purchaser is obliged to check the correctness of the selected data and information during the process of ordering the goods before they are finally sent to the Seller.
2.4 The application of any other terms and conditions of the Purchaser specified in the purchase order, another document, message or e-mails of the Purchaser that are contrary to these GTC is expressly excluded.
2.5 The Purchaser’s purchase order shall be considered sent if it is delivered to the Seller and if it contains all the required information – the name of the ordered goods, its quantity, price, the Purchaser’s delivery and billing addresses, e-mail address and phone number. If the GTC do not stipulate otherwise in a separate provision, the Seller is bound by his/her offer of the goods, including its price from the moment the acceptance of the purchase order is sent to the Purchaser (conclusion of an agreement) until the goods are delivered to the Purchaser.
2.6 Before sending a purchase order to the Purchaser, the Purchaser is obliged to confirm by clicking that he/she was informed of and agrees with the applicable GTC of the Purchaser, regarding them as part of the contractual relationship between the Seller and the Purchaser. The process of issuing and sending a purchase order by the Purchaser cannot be completed without this step. Each purchase order is assigned a registration number. When communicating with the Seller and during the payment process, the Purchaser indicates the number of the product order.
2.7 The Purchaser sends a purchase order to the Seller via a shopping portal. This purchase order is the Purchaser’s proposal to conclude a Purchase Agreement under the contractual terms and conditions of these GTC. The purchase order is intended for the Seller to be accepted by the Seller within 15 days of its delivery to the Seller. By sending an order to the Seller via a shopping portal, the Purchaser expresses his willingness to be bound by his/her purchase order throughout the stated time period, to buy and take over the selected goods at the purchase price in accordance with the GTC, provided that the purchase order is accepted by the Seller. Upon the delivery of the purchase order, the Seller shall electronically confirm the Purchaser’s purchase order without delay, i.e. inform the Purchaser of the receipt and classification of the purchase order in the Seller’s system. The electronic order confirmation of the purchase order is not considered an acceptance of the purchase order by the Seller under Article 2 of the GTC and does not constitute an establishment of a Purchase Sub-agreement.
2.8 On the basis of the agreement between the Parties and in accordance with the GTC, the Purchase Agreement between the Parties is concluded if the Seller confirms the Purchaser’s purchase order and at the same time, the Seller accepts the order via a separate e-mail or message addressed to the Purchaser within 15 days from the receipt of the purchase order (i.e. expresses agreement with the purchase order) pursuant to these GTC. The Seller shall accept the Purchaser’s purchase order by sending an e-mail or message to the Purchaser. On the basis of an agreement between the Parties and these GTC, the Seller is obliged to accept the purchase order in the time period pursuant to Article 3.1.1 of the GTC.
2.9 The Purchaser may withdraw the purchase order via e-mail delivered to the Seller, provided that this withdrawal is delivered to the Seller before the Seller accepts the purchase order pursuant to the GTC. If the time period for acceptance of the purchase order expires without the Seller accepting the purchase order, the purchase order shall be automatically cancelled. The purchase order shall also be cancelled in other cases pursuant to the GTC.
2.10 Changing the purchase order/conditions: if the Seller is unable to accept the Purchaser’s purchase order in its entirety (e.g. 1 of 3 ordered items is unavailable) or if he/she proposes to change the purchase order or change the delivery terms and conditions for other reasons, the Purchaser will be informed of this fact by e-mail or by other appropriate means. At the same time, the Purchaser will be asked to express his consent or disagreement with the change. The Purchaser is obliged to express his consent or disagreement within 2 days from the date of being notified of the proposed change. During this period, the available items from the Purchaser’s purchase order shall be reserved for the Purchaser. Only when the Purchaser accepts (approves) the proposed change of the purchase order, a contractual relationship arises between the Parties. In the event the Purchaser does not approve the change within the specified time period by the specified means, the Purchaser’s purchase order shall be considered cancelled in its entirety on the expiry of the period, and the Seller’s proposal for the change shall be considered not accepted by the Purchaser.
The Purchase Agreement between the Seller and the Purchaser is concluded by accepting the Purchaser’s purchase order by the Seller or by accepting the changes of the purchase order proposed by the Seller and accepted by the Purchaser. On the basis of the Purchase Agreement, the Seller shall be obliged to deliver the subject-matter of the purchase to the Purchaser and fulfil the obligations under the GTC. On the basis of the concluded Agreement, the Purchaser shall be obliged to accept the subject-matter of the purchase, pay the agreed price to the Seller and fulfil the obligations under the Agreement and the GTC. The Seller shall fulfil the accepted purchase order within the time period pursuant to Article 4.1 of the GTC.
2.11 In special cases and before sending his/her acceptance, the Seller reserves the right to request from the Purchaser the delivery of other necessary documents or information or to verify the correctness of the Purchaser’s e-mail address or phone number. Depending on the nature of the Purchaser’s purchase order, the Seller is always entitled to ask the Purchaser for additional authorisation of the purchase order or the Purchaser’s identity in an appropriate manner, e.g. in writing, via e-mail, text message or phone. In the event the Purchaser does not perform additional authorisation in the manner required by the Seller and within the period required by the Seller, the purchase order (before its acceptance) or the Purchase Agreement (after its acceptance) shall be cancelled from the outset by the expiry of this period.
2.12 In the event the Seller discovers a typographical, systemic, human, delivery or other error concerning the product, its price, availability, quantity or possibilities of its delivery before or after the Agreement is concluded, as well as in the event the stocks are exhausted or the goods are unavailable or the Purchaser is unable to deliver the product to the Purchaser within the agreed time period or at a price specified in the internet store or for reasons of force majeure, the Seller shall inform the Purchaser of this fact. In the event any of these particular cases occur, the Seller and the Purchaser shall be entitled to withdraw/cancel their purchase order (the Purchaser) or reject it (the Seller) prior to the conclusion of the Agreement. If such a particular circumstance occurs after the conclusion of the Agreement, the Seller shall be entitled to withdraw from the Agreement until the moment the goods are delivered to the Purchaser. In the event such a particular circumstance reported to the Purchaser occurs, the Purchaser shall be entitled to withdraw from the Purchase Agreement pursuant to the GTC and the legal provisions. If the Purchaser has already paid the purchase price, it shall be returned to him in accordance with the legal provisions and the GTC. The Seller shall be entitled to unilaterally withdraw from the Agreement and/or not deliver the goods to the Purchaser also in the event that he/she finds out that incorrect, incomplete or false information concerning the Purchaser, the person accepting the goods, were included in the communication or if there is a risk that as a result of the conduct of the person with whom the Seller has communicated, a damage may be caused to the Seller (e.g. fraudulent conduct).
2.13 The Purchaser is entitled to unilaterally withdraw from the Agreement in the period from the moment the Agreement is concluded until the goods are delivered, provided that he/she is obliged to bear the costs of the shipping and the delivery of the goods. The possibilities of a withdrawal of the Purchaser upon the receipt of the goods are specified in the GTC and the legislation.
2.14 Neither the Purchaser nor the Seller is entitled to assign the receivable from mutual relations to a third party.
2.15 Before sending a purchase order, the Purchaser shall be entitled to perform the steps and use technical means specified in Article 2 and 3 of these GTC in order to conclude the Agreement or discover or correct technical errors.

4. Guarantee and Complaints Conditions, Complaints Procedure
4.1 The provisions of this point do not apply to a Purchaser who purchases goods for business purposes and not for the purposes of personal consumption of natural persons. Liability for defects of goods, in this case, is governed by the provisions of §422 et seq. of the Commercial Code. The Seller deals with customers’ complaints in accordance with the legal provisions of the Slovak Republic, in particular, Act No. 250/2007 Coll. as amended, the Civil Code of the Slovak Republic and the applicable legal provisions.
4.2 Pursuant to the legal provisions of the Slovak Republic, the standard length of the guarantee period for all goods purchased on the basis of civil-law relationships is 24 months unless the legal provisions of the Slovak Republic stipulate a shorter guarantee period for certain types of goods. The guarantee period starts on the date the goods are accepted by the Purchaser.
4.3 The duration of the guarantee period is governed by the legal provisions of the Slovak Republic. If a time limit for use is indicated on the item being sold, its packaging or in the accompanying instructions, the guarantee period shall not end before the expiry of this period.
The warranty does not cover the defects and damages caused: by standard wear, actions of the Purchaser or a third party after the goods have been accepted by the Purchaser, improper or rough handling, excessive burden, mechanical damage or wear, using the goods contrary to the instructions of use or intended purposes, or by non-compliance with the rules for the use, maintenance or storage, by natural disasters, improper or incorrect assembly, installation or storage, as a result of a failure to perform regular maintenance and service inspections (if instructed to do such inspections by the user manual).
4.4 The Purchaser’s guarantee also expires in the event the seal is removed from the goods or if the goods have been tampered with.
4.5 The Purchaser may lodge a complaint by sending the goods along with other required documents (particularly the proof of purchase) to the central complaint department of MOSS.SK s.r.o. to the address: M.R. Štefánika 297/11, 050 01 Revúca.
4.6 The Purchaser shall enclose a legible original or a copy of the proof of purchase with the claimed goods, and provide a detailed description of the defect and the way the defect is manifested on the outside. The goods shall be delivered in an unaltered condition and with the accessories supplied with the goods.
4.7 When lodging a complaint, the Seller shall issue a confirmation to the consumer. In the event the complaint is lodged by means of distance communication, the Seller shall deliver the confirmation of the lodged complaint to the consumer when delivering the proof of the settlement of the complaint at the latest; the confirmation of the lodged complaint need not be delivered if the consumer has an opportunity to prove the lodging of the complaint in another way. It is not possible to evaluate the complaint without presenting the goods.
4.8 If there is a defect that can be removed, the Purchaser is entitled to have the defect removed free of charge and in a timely and proper manner. The Seller is obliged to remove the error without undue delay. The Purchaser may ask for a replacement of the item instead of a removal of the defect, or, if the defect concerns only a part of the item, the replacement of the part of the item, provided that no unreasonable costs arise to the Seller with regard to the price of the goods or the seriousness of the defect. The Seller may always replace the defective item with a defect-free one instead of removing the defect, provided that this does not cause serious difficulties to the Purchaser. If there is a defect that cannot be removed and this defect prevents the item from being used properly as a defect-free item, the Purchaser is entitled to have the item replaced or withdraw from the Agreement. The same rights belong to the Purchaser if there is a removable defect, but the Purchaser cannot properly use the item due to the re-occurrence of the defect after the repair or due to a larger number of defects. If there are irremovable defects, the Purchaser is entitled to a reasonable discount on the price of the item.
4.9 The Seller shall issue a confirmation of the lodged complaint no later than 30 days from the day the complaint has been lodged in accordance with the Law on Consumer Protection and the legal provisions. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees with the fact that the confirmation of the lodged complaint and the proof of the settlement of the complaint will be delivered to the Purchaser in accordance with the legal provisions. Upon the completion of the complaints procedure, as well as at the request of the Purchaser, the Purchaser is obliged to accept the claimed goods from the Seller within 15 days, provided that the complaint was settled by means of repair, discount, replacement of the goods (new goods) or rejection of the complaint.
4.10 In the event the Purchaser fails to accept the delivery of the goods within 30 days after the complaint has been settled or within 30 days of the date of repeated delivery of the goods to the Purchaser or the Purchaser fails to collect the goods within the same time period from the moment the Seller sends an invitation to pay to the contact address provided by the Purchaser, the Seller is entitled to ask the Purchaser to pay him/her the amount of €0.25 for each day of storage pursuant to the legal provisions.
5. Returning the Ordered Goods – Withdrawal from the Agreement
5.1. The Seller shall be entitled to withdraw from the Purchase Agreement as a result of stocks being exhausted, unavailability of the goods or if the manufacturer, importer or supplier of the goods agreed upon in the Purchase Agreement, discontinued the production or made such significant changes that prevented fulfilment of the obligation of the Seller arising from the Purchase Agreement or by reason of force majeure or if the Seller, despite all reasonable efforts to do so, was not able to deliver the goods to the customer in the time period stipulated by these commercial conditions or at a price specified in the online store. The Seller is obliged to immediately inform the Purchaser of this fact and to return the already paid advance payment for the goods agreed upon in the Purchase Agreement to the Purchaser within 15 days from the notice of withdrawal from the Agreement by a transfer to the bank account designated by the Purchaser.
5.2. The Purchaser has the right to withdraw from the Purchase Agreement without giving a reason under the conditions governed by Act No. 102/2014 Coll. on the Protection of Consumers in Sale of Goods or Provision of Services under Remote Contracts or Contracts Executed Outside the Business Premises of the Seller and on Amendments to Certain Acts (hereinafter referred to as the “Act on the Protection of Consumers in Sale of Goods”) within 14 days from the date of receipt of the goods. Within this period, the Purchaser has the right to unpack and test the goods in a similar way as is usual when purchasing the goods in a standard permanent store. However, testing the goods does not mean using them and then returning them to the Seller. The goods are deemed to have been accepted by the Purchaser the moment the Purchaser or a third party designated by the Purchaser, with the exception of the carrier, accepts all parts of the ordered goods, or in the event
