  2. Registration

    In order to gain access to some of the services on the website scharfen.com (our "website"), registration is required. When you provide your information online, you are asked to ensure that this information is accurate, current and truthful. You are also responsible for the personal information related to your online account and for keeping your password secret.

    The Terms of Use and all our policies and procedures are governed by and construed in accordance with the relevant laws of the Federal Republic of Germany and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the relevant courts of the Federal Republic of Germany.

  3. Order

    Once your order is complete, you will be asked to provide personal and payment information. As part of the online transaction, we may conduct a credit fraud check. With your payment order via the website, you give us permission to conduct such checks as necessary.

    Orders placed through the Website are subject to the availability of the requested items. Items that you have placed in your shopping cart on the Website will not be reserved for you and will be available for purchase by other customers who are also in the online store.

    Once you have placed your order through the Website, the items will be reserved for you. However, the sale is not complete until the goods leave the warehouse and payment has been successfully received.

    Availability depends on your delivery address and is subject to stock availability.

  4. Prices

    All prices on the homepage are given in the currency Euro (EUR). A payment in other currencies is not possible.

    All prices for Germany and the EU are inclusive of taxes. All final prices for articles, which are indicated on the payment side, represent the total price to be paid by the customer for these articles, independently of the delivery address. For deliveries to the EU, this price includes VAT (or its equivalent) at the current rate. Although this price is the same for shipments outside the EU, where VAT (or its equivalent) may not apply, customers are not entitled to a discount or refund to offset different tax rates.

    Such customers pay the same price for the item as customers who place an order with a place of delivery within the EU. Other elements of the final payment price, including shipping costs, may vary from customer to customer.

  5. Import duties and taxes

    Import duties and taxes can be levied by the respective local authorities. It is legally required that we declare the total value of the contents of all deliveries. Local import duties and taxes may be levied by the supplier on behalf of the local customs authorities.

  6. Payment methods and order acceptance

    We accept the following payment methods on our website:

    Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Paypal, Bank Transfer

    For all orders the payment is due with dispatch of the goods. The payment is subject to a credit fraud check and a credit card holder check.

    By submitting your order you confirm that you are the cardholder or that you are making the payment with the cardholder's consent. We reserve the right to refuse payments and orders from customers under the age of 18.

    The entire payment process is handled through WooCommerce’s secure payment system, where all payment details are encrypted. All credit card information is stored securely on WooCommerce’s secure servers.

    Your order and payment will not be considered complete until the final payment is made when the goods are shipped. We reserve the right to refuse any payment or cancel any order at our sole discretion.

  7. Return & exchange

    If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you may return the item for exchange or refund within 14 days of receipt of your order, provided the item is unused and in its original packaging. We reserve the right to refuse refunds for items that are not in saleable condition.

    Returns will only be accepted for items purchased directly from scharfen.com.

  8. Order cancellations within the scope of the right of withdrawal under distance selling law / the right of withdrawal for consumer contracts

  10. General regulations

    We may transfer these rights and obligations under these Terms to another organization. We will then notify you in writing, but it will not affect your rights and obligations under these Terms. This Agreement is between you and Scharfen Slicing Machines GmbH. No other person has the right to enforce any of these terms and conditions. All clauses of these terms and conditions apply independently of each other. If any provision of this agreement is found unlawful by any court or other relevant authority, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

A waiver of any default on your part will only become effective if we give written notice of such waiver. Our waiver of any default on your part does not automatically constitute a waiver of any subsequent default on your part. These terms and conditions are subject to German law. Both parties, Scharfen Slicing Machines GmbH and you, agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the German courts.
