§ 2 Conclusion of contract

Orders may exclusively be placed online via the OM Digital Solutions Shop website at https://shop.olympus.eu. Before submitting the order, the buyer can view and change the data at any time. The buyer makes a binding offer to enter into a contract as soon as it clicks on the "buy now" button. However, the order can only be sent and transmitted if the buyer confirms acceptance of these GTC by ticking the corresponding checkbox. The buyer has the option of calling up the contractual provisions including the GTC before completing the order process and saving them in reproducible form. We confirm receipt of an order from the buyer by sending an e-mail in which we confirm receipt of the order and list the contents thereof (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not constitute an acceptance of the offer, but is only intended to inform the buyer that the order has been received by us. The contract shall only be concluded upon the submission of the declaration of acceptance by OM Digital Solutions, which shall be sent with a separate e-mail (order confirmation), at the latest, however, upon dispatch of the goods. In this e-mail or in a separate e-mail, but at the latest upon delivery of the goods, the contract text (consisting of the order, the GTC and the order confirmation) will be sent by us to the buyer on a durable data carrier (e-mail or paper printout) (contract confirmation). The text of the contract will not be stored by us for retrieval by the buyer after completion of the order process. The contractual partner is OM Digital Solutions. The sales offer of OM Digital Solutions is not directed at minors. Even our products intended for children may only be purchased by adults. For the avoidance of doubt, our Online Store is dedicated to consumers. If you are a business, please, mind that we do not issue VAT invoices to our customers buying through our Online B2C Store, therefore, as a business, you will not be able to claim the VAT back.Please note that we sell products only in quantities which correspond to the typical needs of an average household. This applies both to the number of products ordered within a single order and the placing of several orders for the same product where the individual orders comprise a quantity typical for a normal household.

The contract is concluded in the English language.

Consumers have a right of withdrawal under the following conditions. A consumer is a natural person with whom a legal transaction is concluded primarily for a purpose that cannot be attributed to that person's commercial or self-employed activity.

§ 5 Delivery

Delivery takes place exclusively within the Republic of Ireland.

If no or no deviating delivery time is specified for the respective goods in our online shop, the delivery period is 14 days. Delivery times stated by us are calculated from the time of conclusion of the contract, provided that the purchase price has been paid in advance (except in the case of purchase on account).

If the product is permanently not available, we will refrain from issuing a declaration of acceptance. In this case, a contract is not concluded.

Credit card payment: When using the credit card payment method (Visa and Mastercard), you will be redirected to our payment service provider Adyen. There, you will pay directly by entering your credit card details. After submitting your order and entering your credit card details, your credit card will be charged directly.

The payment transaction will be carried out immediately afterwards and your account will be debited.

§ 7 Offsetting, retention

The buyer shall only have a right of set-off if the counterclaim has been determined by a court or is undisputed. However, it shall also be entitled to set-off against OM Digital Solutions' claims if it asserts notices of defects or counterclaims arising from the same purchase contract.

§ 12 Governing law and dispute resolution

The law of Ireland shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). If the buyer has placed the order as a consumer and has his habitual residence in another country at the time of his order, mandatory legal provisions of this country shall remain applicable and unaffected by the choice of law made in sentence 1.

The place of jurisdiction is Dublin, Ireland if the buyer is not a consumer.

With Regulation (EU) No. 524/2013, the European Commission has created a platform for the out-of-court settlement of disputes, which may be accessed at https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.

It is not compulsory for us to participate in this dispute resolution process and we reserve our right to assess this on a case by case basis.

You may contact our complaints office directly by e-mail (eshop.support@om-digitalsolutions.com) for further information.

In order to continue the ordering process, you have to accept these terms and conditions.
