After receiving an Order from a User handed over to the Retailer by the Operator, the Retailer is obligated to send the User, in accordance with Article 3.9. of the Terms and Conditions, a confirmation of Order containing, at least, information in accordance with the Terms and Conditions. The delivery of such a confirmation of Order to a User concludes a Purchase Contract. The Retailer notes that a Purchase Contract is not concluded by the sending of a summary of an Order by the Operator to the User in accordance with Article 3.7. of the Terms and Conditions. The Retailer is obligated to keep Order statuses up to date so that it is possible, at any time, to ascertain the status of an Order. If the Goods were, at the moment an Order was sent, properly displayed on the Portal, the Retailer is obligated to conclude a Purchase Contract with the User under the conditions resulting from the Offer.
3.3.

In the event the Retailer states on the Portal that the availability of Goods is “In stock”, it is obligated to send the Goods (or prepare them for personal acceptance) no later than the business day after the date the Purchase Contract is concluded.

The stated provisions of the Terms and Conditions contain provisions that comprise a necessary part of a Purchase Contract. In the event that the Retailer offers Goods through its E-shop under conditions different to those stipulated in the Terms and Conditions (business terms and conditions, complaint rules, etc.), it undertakes not to apply such different terms and conditions when offering Goods and concluding contracts through the Portal, to the extent to which there is a discrepancy with the Terms and Conditions of Use of Heureka Shopping Gallery and the Contract or Business Terms and Conditions. The provisions of separate terms and conditions of a Retailer that are more favourable to Users than the provisions of the Terms and Conditions always apply to a relationship between a User and a Retailer. The provisions of the Contract, these Business Terms and Conditions and the Terms and Conditions of Use of Heureka Shopping Gallery are binding to the Retailer, the Retailer expressly agrees to them and undertakes to comply with them. If the Retailer applies its own business or complaint terms and conditions to a Purchase Contract to an extent that does not conflict with the Terms and Conditions under this paragraph, it is obligated to state a reference to its business or complaint terms and conditions in the confirmation of Order sent to the User in accordance with Article 3.2.

By concluding the Contract, the Retailer authorizes the Operator to provide the aforementioned information to Users through the Portal on the Retailer’s behalf.
3.8. The Retailer is obligated to arrange a document on acceptance of Goods by a User for all Goods delivered.

If the Operator repays the purchase price to the User in accordance with Article 3.11., the Retailer undertakes to pay the Operator an amount identical to the amount paid by the Operator to the User, based on a tax document delivered to the Retailer.

A condition for such a payment is that, at the moment the User becomes entitled to the repayment of the purchase price, there is a sufficient amount of funds on the Payment Account for payment to the Retailer. The Retailer’s entitlement to the payment of purchase prices for Goods and services received into the Payment Account in favor of the Retailer will be reduced by such an amount.
3.13.
