Terms and Conditions

Conclusion of the agreement

The presentation of products in the online shop does not constitute a legally binding offer, but an invitation to place an order. Orders are placed online. When the customer adds products to their shopping cart and confirms their selection by clicking the button labelled “PLACE ORDER”, a binding order is placed. A contract is only concluded when Gottlieber Spezialitäten AG sends an order confirmation to the customer by e-mail.

  • Inability to deliver or late delivery of products due to an incorrectly stated or erroneous delivery address or absence of the recipient
  • The performance of third-party service providers, for example, late delivery by external shippers, postal services etc.
  • Delayed print approvals
  • Unforeseeable problems with customs processing, customs issues or events due to force majeure
  • Inclusion of valuables by the customer, such as cash, coupons, motorway charge stickers, etc.

We do not send out mail on Fridays when temperatures are high. This is intended to prevent products from being exposed to high temperatures for long periods due to storage over the weekend. These orders are sent on Monday by A Mail.

Orders placed through amazon.de are processed by Swisslogistik.
