2. Scope of application
The following terms and conditions are applicable to all sales contracts concerning goods (including, without limitation, bdsm-accessoires, fetish-toys, leather-outfits and other bondage-fashion products) concluded between Rainbow Bondage (as seller) and you via her webshop at www.rainbowbondage.com, as amended at the time an order is placed. If you place an order, you accept the following terms and conditions.
3. Language of the contract
The contract is concluded in English. All other information and customer services are also provided in German; complaints can be handled in English and German.
4. Conclusion of a contract
Your order constitutes a binding offer for the conclusion of a sales contract concerning the product ordered. You may place an order only if you provide complete personal information. You will receive an electronic order confirmation for every online order placed via the webshop. A sales contract is deemed concluded upon Rainbow Bondage expressly accepting an order or the product ordered being shipped to you. In the event that Rainbow Bondage is unable to confirm a customer‘s offer, we will endeavour to inform you of this at the earliest possible opportunity. Specially, it may happen that our stocks of the goods a customer has ordered have run out in the interim or that we are unable to deliver them for other reasons. Deviations in colour from the goods depicted on the website are due to technical reasons, and shall not give rise to any basis for complaints.
5. Availability of goods
Rainbow Bondage produces a very limited number of exemplars of most models per colour and material combination. The possibility thus exists that a unique or last exemplar of this kind may be sold in the webshop at the same time as you are shopping online. Hence, in the event that Rainbow Bondage is unable to deliver the goods, Rainbow Bondage shall be entitled to cancel the contract and refund all payments made to date without delay to the customer.
6. Consumer‘s right to cancel distance contracts
If you are a consumer as defined in the Austrian Consumer Protection Act and a contract has been concluded using exclusively one or more means of distance communication, such as telephone, letter, E-Mail, order form or webshop form, you may cancel your contract or contractual acceptance without giving any reason within fourteen days, beginning on the day you receive your product. You are deemed to have cancelled your contract in due time if you electronically or otherwise send your cancellation notice on the last day of the above four- teen-day period. If you cancel your contract, you must return the product received in its original packaging and without any signs of use. If you have used the product, you must pay Rainbow Bondage reasonable compensation, including compensation for a loss of the product‘s fair market value resulting from such use; mere acceptance of the product shall not constitute a loss of value. You are expressly required to bear all costs and shipping charges incurred in returning the product. Rainbow Bondage concurrently undertakes to refund your payment to you.
Unless expressly provided otherwise, all prices quoted in the online store are inclusive Austrian taxes. On shipments to non-EEA countries, the customer shall be liable for all import and export duties as well as all customs tariffs, fees and taxes associated with the delivery. Rainbow Bondage reserves the right to change prices prior to an order. Type or electronic transmission errors excepted.
8. Terms and conditions of delivery
Delivery of the goods will only be made after full payment is received. Following receipt of payment, Rainbow Bondage will fulfil an order without undue delay and in any case within thirty days. This delivery period may be exceeded in particular cases if timely fulfilment of an order is prevented by special reasons (e.g. overseas shipments or if special metal accessories must be purchased abroad). Exception applies to orders made through „CUSTOMISED“ and/or custom-made products: the date of dispatch after a placed order depends on the type of outfit / accessoire requested and the effort for the production until finalisation. Goods are delivered ex warehouse to your delivery address using customary modes of shipment (post, delivery services, etc.). Any risk and coincidence will pass to you once the product ordered is handed over to the delivery company. Express deliveries must be expressly agreed and you will have to pay for any extra cost.
9. Payment, maturity and default
Payment of the purchase price is due immediately at the time the contract is concluded. Exception applies in the event that a product has been purchased through „CUSTOMISED“ and/or custom-made orders. In this particular case, 50% of the total purchase price must be paid as soon as Rainbow Bondage starts with the realisation and creation of the final product. Once the completed final product has been shipped or handed over, you have to pay the remaining 50% of the price. In the case of invoices, these are payable immediately upon receipt without any deduction of cash discounts. You will have to bear all reminder charges, collection charges and any other costs incurred for legal services if you are culpably in default of payment. Please note that you will have to pay reminder charges of EUR 18,- per reminder. Rainbow Bondage charges EUR 100,- plus VAT for any reminders sent by her lawyer.
10. Retention of title
Rainbow Bondage will retain title to the goods pending full payment.
11. Statutory Warranty, guarantees and liability
We wish to remind you that statutory warranty claims may arise in connection with the purchase of goods, the scope of which is governed by statute and may not be limited by these GTCs (see e.g. secs. 922 ff. Austrian Civil Code in conjunction with sec. 9 (1) Austrian Consumer Protection Act). In order to assert statutory warranty claims, the customer may address such claims to Rainbow Bondage care of the above-referenced address. Rainbow Bondage shall immediately examine any customer complaints; the customer is obliged to for- ward the allegedly defective goods to the Seller. If the product cannot be repaired or replaced, if such repair or replacement would involve disproportionate efforts for Rainbow Bondage or if Rainbow Bondage cannot comply with such a request at all or within a reasonable period, you may claim a price reduction or cancel the contract in whole. If a product has minor defects, you may not cancel the contract in whole. The costs associated with return of the goods shall be borne by the Seller provided that the customer‘s complaint was well-founded. The Seller hereby disclaims any and all liability in compensatory damages for property damage occasioned as a result of slight negligence.
12. Right of rescission
You may cancel the contract within 14 days‘ time from the date you receive the goods you have ordered without the need to indicate any grounds of rescission either in written or electronic form (e.g. letter, E-Mail) or by returning the goods to Rainbow Bondage. It suffices if you send your notification that you are exercising your right of cancellation within such period. In the case of cancellation, a whole or partial refund of the purchase price will only be made simultaneously in exchange for the return of the goods received by the customer. Any returns of goods should be made to the following address: Rainbow Bondage, Peter-Jordan-Straße 33/3, 1190 Vienna, Austria. The customer must return the goods to Rainbow Bondage in an unused condition, capable of being resold as new, and in their original packaging. In the case of items that have been impaired by traces of usage, Rainbow Bondage will charge a reasonable fee for the decrease in value. The same applies where any accessories or parts are missing at such time as the goods are returned. The customer should use the enclosed return slip and return sticker for returning the goods. Payment obligations must be satisfied within 30 days‘ time. This period shall commence as to the customer at such time as the goods are shipped or the customer requests a return of them, and as to Rainbow Bondage at such time as it receives a return of goods. The customer shall be responsible for the cost of returning the goods. In the event that the goods are returned freight collect /postage due, Rainbow Bondage shall be entitled to retain a corresponding amount or to invoice the customer for such amount. Exception applies in the event that a product has been purchased through „CUSTOMISED“ and/or custom-made orders. In this particular case, once you have confirmed the prototype and agreed with the final production, you may not cancel the contract.

If you are a consumer as defined in the Austrian Consumer Protection Act and reside or have your habitual place of abode in Austria or are employed in Austria, the court in the district of which you have your residence, habitual place of abode or place of employment shall have jurisdiction.
