By ordering our products, you indicate that you consent to the conditions below and state that you are competent to enter into legally-binding contracts and are at least 18 years old.

2. Contracting Party
This Website, for the sale of goods via the Internet, is operated by Swarovski Crystal Online AG (Alte Landstrasse 411, CH-8708, Männedorf, Switzerland), which is legally represented by Arno Ebner, its Managing Director. This is where you can place complaints or assert statutory warranty claims.
You can reach our customer service on any issues at: firstname.lastname@example.org
3. Formation of Contract
Your orders on the Website are binding offers for entering into the associated contracts to purchase with Swarovski Crystal Online AG. We are free to either accept these offers within 14 days of receipt or to reject them by sending you a statement to that effect. There is no binding contract to purchase formed until we have accepted your order. This acceptance is indicated by the shipment of the goods ordered.
You indicate that you expressly agree to have your credit rating checked by inquiries to the officially-authorized credit protection associations, credit institutions and credit inquiry agencies. We reserve the right to refuse to accept the order if we receive a negative credit report. In addition, we reserve the right to reject orders from customers if there is reason to believe that the customer is acting in contravention of the General Terms and Conditions, is involved in fraudulent activities or other activities of importance from a criminal law standpoint or any other material reason exists.
Products and prices are as shown on the Website; products are available as long as they are in stock. We reserve the right to change the products offered on the Website at any time without notice and to limit the number of items that may be purchased by a visitor.
There is no liability for lack of items in stock or for products not being available.
Any commercial resale or distribution of Swarovski products sold on the Website is strictly prohibited.
Please note that after your order is confirmed, no requests to change or cancel it can be considered.
5. Reservation of Performance for Undeliverable Goods
If the goods ordered cannot be delivered within 30 days following the day after your order, we may withdraw from the contract, even if we previously confirmed that we were entering into it. If we withdraw, you will be informed that the goods are not available and you will be reimbursed immediately for the consideration you have already provided.
6. Price and Additional Costs
The total price of your order, including all ancillary and shipping costs, was indicated on the previous page or will be shown at the end of the checkout process. By confirming the order, you state that you agree to the price for the goods. The price cannot be adjusted after the completion of the check-out process.
Swarovski products are sold by Swarovski Crystal Online AG, which has its headquarters in Switzerland. We would like to point out that for foreign payments using credit cards, a foreign transaction fee (about 1-2%) may be charged by the institution that issued your credit card.
General Terms & Conditions (T&Cs) for purchase on account, payment by instalment or payment
7. Payment conditions
The purchase price for goods ordered is due when you place your order through Swarovski Crystal Online. Payment may be by credit card (by entering your card data on the Website) or - for registered users as applicable in certain countries - on account. You may settle our claims for payment only by using uncontested or final and unappealable receivables.
If you pay with a credit card, we reserve the right to check the validity of the card and to monitor the availability parameters for collection and the address data. If the institution that issued the credit card refuses to make payment to us, we are not liable for delays or for failure to deliver.
8. Delivery and Reservation of Title
Standard shipping is free of charge for all orders over 75€/65GBP. The goods ordered are normally delivered to the delivery address you provide by our contracted delivery service within 5-7 working days after the working day following your order. If you so request, we will make efforts to deliver the goods at a specific time, but generally cannot make binding promises to do so. We cannot guarantee delivery before the 24th of December. Until the purchase price is paid in its entirety, the goods remain our property.
Upon receipt the shipment must be checked for accuracy and completeness.
9. Right of Withdrawal
You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 28 days without giving any reason.
The withdrawal period will expire after 28 days on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (Swarovski Crystal Online AG, Alte Landstrasse 411, CH-8708 Männedorf, Switzerland, e-mail: email@example.com) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail).

Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.
We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
You shall send back the goods without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to DB Schenker / CADENZZA, Swarovski Crystal Online AG, Griesauweg 27-29, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria.

We will bear the costs of returning the goods.
If you cancel an order, you are obligated to return the goods to the address listed on our Website under "Delivery & Returns“. Timely sending is sufficient to meet the deadline. The products must be in original condition with their original packaging and the return voucher must be attached to the products.
The costs will be reimbursed only if the goods are received unused and in original condition at the address indicated above. Please note if partial payment is made by gift card, the amount paid via your chosen payment method will be reimbursed first via the same payment method.

Vouchers can generally not be replaced or returned. In case of a value based voucher the price for the single product will be deducted in aliquot part of the respective product price.
In case of a return you will only be refunded the amount actually paid for the returned product.
In case of a gift with purchase due to a value or quantity based threshold, Swarovski Crystal Online aG maintains the right to request the return of the gift in case the initial requirements for the promotion are for whatever reason not fulfilled any longer. Returns are only free of charge if the return label supplied by Cadenzza is used. For further details see “Delivery & Returns”
It is not currently possible to return goods purchased in Cadenzza shops through the Website.
If there is a defect in the goods delivered, you may at your option demand that the contract be revoked or - if the goods are still deliverable - that they be replaced with the same type of good without any defects. No independent guarantee is provided in addition to that.
