Terms & Conditions
The following General Business Terms and Conditions (“General Business Terms and Conditions”) regulate the relationships of parties to a purchase/licence agreement entered into by and between JAN NOWAK Co. Reg. No. 87232448, with its registered office at Podlesi I 5309, Zlín 76005, Czech Republic, registered in the Commercial Register (“Purchaser”).
Purchaser is a consumer or an entrepreneur.
Consumer is a private individual acting in a private capacity, entering into an agreement or otherwise dealing with SP.
Entrepreneur is an individual licensed to get engaged in business on one’s own account and responsibility with an intention to generate profit on a continuous basis. For the purposes of consumer protection, an entrepreneur is (including but not limited to) an individual entering into contracts/agreements relating to the entrepreneur’s business, manufacturing or similar activities or employment; or an individual acting on behalf or on account of an entrepreneur in question. For the purposes hereof, an entrepreneur is an individual acting in compliance with the preceding sentence as part of one’s own business. If completing the registration number in the order, the entrepreneur acknowledge having been bound by the rules stipulated in the General Business Terms and Conditions for Entrepreneurs.
The Purchaser acknowledges that the registered trademarks, trade names, company logos, etc. of SP or SP’s contractual partners cannot be used by the Purchaser by virtue of having purchased the products offered by SP, unless a specific agreement individually provides otherwise.
When accepting the goods and/or services, the Purchaser is issued an invoice including the basic details of the agreement.
II. Pre-Contractual Representations and Warranties
SP represents and warrants that:
- The cost of distance communication is subject to no additional fees (SP charges no additional fees to the amount charged by the Purchaser’s internet/telephone provider; unlike in case of contractual deliveries).
- The Purchaser is required to pay the purchase price before accepting the goods from SP or make an advance or similar payment for specific services if the same are offered by SP and requested by the Purchaser.
- Unless stipulated otherwise, the licence fee stipulated in a licence agreement entered into for an indefinite period is agreed for the entire licence term.
- The prices for goods and services displayed on the website operated by SP are quoted incl. and excl. VAT, with all statutory fees (if any). Shipping costs, however, vary with reference to the selected shipping method, carrier and payment method.
- Purchasers-consumers can and may withdraw from the agreement (unless otherwise stipulated below) within a period of 14 days commencing on the day of:
i. receiving the goods (purchase agreements);
and do so in writing either by sending the notice of withdrawal to the SP.
The Purchaser enters into the agreement by accepting the offer to enter into the agreement as displayed on the website operated by SP and in particular by adding the requested product (goods, services) to the cart. The Purchaser can change the products added to the cart as well as the selected shipping and payment method, i.e. check the order details, before placing a firm order. The purchase agreement is entered into upon the moment the Purchaser (having selected the shipping and payment method) submits the order and the order in question is received by SP whereby SP assumes no liability for any mistakes and errors (if any) having occurred during the transfer of data. The Purchaser is informed about the executed agreement in a confirmation email letter sent by SP to the email address provided by the Purchaser.
Under the purchase agreement, SP undertakes to deliver the product to the Purchaser, provide the digital content/licence to the Purchaser and enable the Purchaser to acquire the title/licence to the product/digital content purchased under the purchase agreement; the Purchaser undertakes to receive the product/digital content from and pay the purchase price to SP.
As SP reserves the right of ownership to the product, the Purchaser acquires the title to the product only after the purchase price has been paid in full. The same applies with necessary modifications also to the purchased licences or services.
SP delivers the product to the Purchaser along with relevant documents pertaining thereto and enables the Purchaser to acquire the title to the product/licence in compliance with the agreement.
SP meets its obligation to deliver the product to the Purchaser by enabling the Purchaser to view and try the product at the place of performance and informing the Purchaser thereabout in due course.
Products to be shipped by SP are delivered to the Purchaser (entrepreneur) by submitting the product to the first shipping company and enabling the Purchaser to claim the rights implied by the shipping agreement with the shipping company. Products designated for Purchasers-consumers are delivered by SP to the Purchasers-consumers only after SP receives the product in question from the shipping company.
If more items are delivered in excess of the amount agreed the purchase agreement is deemed entered into for the number of items delivered; unless the Purchaser rejects such items without undue delay.
SP delivers the purchased product to the Purchaser in the agreed amount, quality and design.
If not agreed otherwise, the product is packed by SP by convention; if no convention exists, the product in question is packed as to provide for its protection and preservation. The same applies also to goods to be shipped.
3. Risk of Damage
The product is faulty if it lacks the agreed characteristics. The product is deemed faulty also if the Purchaser is delivered other than the ordered product or the documents necessary for the use of the product in question contain defects.
The Purchaser can claim improper performance with reference to the defect inherent to the product at the moment the risk of damage passes to the Purchaser although the defect in question becomes evident only later. The Purchaser can claim the rights also with reference to a defect that has become evident later as result of a breach of SP’s obligation.
The Purchaser is to examine the product, its characteristics and quantity as soon as feasible after the risk of damage to the product passes to the Purchaser.
The risk of damage passes to the Purchaser upon accepting the product in question; the same applies also to cases where the Purchaser rejects to accept the goods although having been enabled by SP to view and try the product.
Damage to the product occurring after the risk of damage has passed to the Purchaser does not affect the Purchaser’s obligation to pay the purchase price unless the damage occurred as result of a breach of SP’s obligation.
If one party is delayed in accepting the product, the other party may and can reasonably sell the product at the expense of the delayed party and do so following a prior notice and providing the delayed party with an additional reasonable period to accept the product. The same applies also to delays on payment where the product cannot be accepted unless the purchase price is paid.
SP guarantees to the Purchaser that the product is free from defects when received by the Purchaser. In particular, SP guarantees to the Purchaser that, at the moment the product is received by the Purchaser:
- The product has the characteristics agreed by the parties or (if no agreement is reached), the characteristics described by SP or the manufacturer or expected by the Purchaser with reference to the nature of the goods and related advertisement.
- The product can be used for the purposes stated by SP or for the purposes for which the product of that kind is usually used.
- The product is provided in the corresponding quantity, measurement or weight.
- The product complies with the requirements stipulated by law.
If the product is found faulty within six months after having been received by the Purchaser, the product is deemed to have been faulty already when received by the Purchaser.
Unless stipulated otherwise, the Purchaser may and can claim faulty consumer goods within 24 month after receipt. This does not apply to:
- discount-related defects;
- usual wear and tear;
- defects caused by ordinary use or wear and tear and evident at the moment of receipt by the Purchaser; or
- cases implied by the nature of the case.
The Consumer acknowledges that if any gifts are received with their order, it is not possible to claim faulty gifts within 24 months of their receipt. The Consumer may and can claim faulty gifts only within 14 days of their receipt. The purchaser or enterpreneur cannot claim faulty gifts.
Improper performance cannot be claimed if the Purchaser was aware about the defect before accepting the product or if the defect in question was caused by the Purchaser.
Discounted/used products found faulty can and may be subject to a reasonable discount rather than replacement.
5. Material Breach
If improper performance constitutes a material breach of the agreement, the Purchaser may and can:
- have the defect removed by being delivered a new defect-free product or the missing part if such is not unreasonable with respect to the nature of the defect in question; in case of a component part affected by the defect, the Purchaser can only claim that the component part in question be replaced; if such is not feasible, the Purchaser may withdraw from the agreement; if, however, the above is not reasonable with respect to the nature of the defect in question, especially if the defect can be removed without undue delay, the Purchaser may and can have the defect removed for free;
- have the defect removed by repair;
- be given a reasonable discount on the purchase price; or
- withdraw from the agreement.
When claiming the defect in question, the Purchaser informs Sp as to which of the aforementioned options the Purchaser has selected and does so either immediately or without undue delay thereafter whereby the selected option can be then changed only if so approved by SP; with the exception of a defect requested by the Purchaser to be repaired and subsequently being identified as irreparable. If the defects are not removed by SP within a reasonable period or if the Purchaser is informed by SP that the defects in question will not be removed, the Purchaser may and can claim a reasonable discount on the purchase price instead of withdrawing from the agreement or withdraw from the agreement.
If the Purchaser fails to select one of the options mentioned above, the rights implied by immaterial breach apply – see below.
In addition to cases where SP cannot deliver a new defect-free product, replace the component part or repair the product, Purchasers-consumers may and can claim a reasonable discount also in cases where SP fails to remedy the situation within a reasonable period or where the remedy would cause significant inconvenience to the Purchaser.
6. General Breach
The Purchaser may claim to have the defect removed by being delivered a new thing or a replaced component part also in cases where the defect can be removed but the product cannot be used because of a repeated occurrence of the defect after repair or a larger number of defects. In such cases, the Purchaser may and can withdraw from the agreement.
If being delivered a new product, the Purchaser returns the original product back to SP (along with all accessories delivered together with the product itself) and does so at SP’s cost.
Purchasers failing to report the defect without undue delay after the defect could have been identified by the Purchaser had the product been examined in due course and with sufficient care will not be adjudicated by court the rights under improper performance. The same applies also to a hidden defect not reported without undue delay after the defect could have been identified by the Purchaser had the product been examined with sufficient care, however, not later than within two years after the product has been delivered to the Purchaser.
7. Quality Warranty
In providing the quality warranty, SP undertakes that the product in question will be fit for the ordinary purpose or will preserve the ordinary characteristics. The same applies also to the warranty period or best before date indicated on the packaging or advertised. The warranty may as well be arranged with reference to individual component parts of a product.
The warranty period commences on the day the product is delivered to the Purchaser. If the product is to be shipped to the Purchaser as agreed in the agreement, the warranty period commences only on the day the product is shipped to the designated place. If the purchased product is to be put into operation by a party other than SP, the warranty period commences only on the day the product is put into operation, provided that the respective service of putting the product into operation is ordered by the Purchaser no later than within three weeks after the product is received and that necessary assistance and co-operation of the Purchaser to render this service are provided.
The Purchaser cannot claim warranty with reference to a defect caused by outer circumstances after the risk of damage has passed to the Purchaser.
Consumers may and can withdraw from the agreement within a period of 14 days. The period stated in the first sentence commences on the day the agreement is executed, this being the day of:
- receiving the goods (purchase agreements);
- receiving the last delivery (agreements for the purchase of several types of goods/delivery of several parts); or
- receiving the first delivery (ongoing contracts).
In the event the buyer opts to withdraw from the contract, and if the device contains personal data, SP recommends the buyer backs-up the data and then deletes it from the device.
Consumers may withdraw from the agreement via email without undue delay.
Consumers may withdraw from the agreement also by sending a notice of withdrawal to:
Vitezstvi 393, Moravska Nova Ves 69155
If withdrawing from the agreement, the consumer is to return to SP the goods delivered by SP and do so at consumer’s cost without undue delay, however, no later than within 14 days after withdrawing from the agreement.
The goods are to be returned complete, i.e. along with the delivered accessories and complete documentation, undamaged, clean, in the original packaging (if possible) and in the condition and value in which the goods have been received by the Purchaser. Any fuel tanks returned as part of the returned goods must be returned empty.
Agreements for the purchase of consumables (flat bands, pouches, etc.) may be withdrawn only if the consumables in question are returned by the Purchaser undamaged, unused and in the original packaging.
Consumers deciding to withdraw from the agreement in the given period are recommended by SP to send the goods to SP’s address along with a cover letter incl. the reason for withdrawal (not necessary), reference number of the proof of purchase and number of bank account so that the case can be addressed without delay.
Consumers are liable to SP for any decrease in value of the goods caused by handling the goods other than as required by the nature and characteristics of the goods.
Consumers withdrawing from the agreement are refunded the entire amount paid under the agreement whereby this amount is refunded by SP without undue delay, however, no later than within 14 days following the withdrawal, and with the use of the same method of payment as agreed in the agreement.
Consumers withdrawing from the agreement may as well be refunded the entire amount paid only after the goods are returned to SP or after the consumers prove that the goods have been sent to SP.
Consumers acknowledge that if the goods are delivered along with any gifts, SP and the Purchaser enter into a contract of donation on the condition that such contract of donation terminates as soon as the consumer enjoys its right and withdraws from the purchase agreement within a period of 14 days whereby the consumer must return the goods in question along with the gifts and everything obtained in relation thereto; if not returned, the same will be considered unjust enrichment. If the profits acquired by unjust enrichment cannot be returned, SP may and can claim monetary compensation in the amount of ordinary price.
If allowed to withdraw from the purchase agreement within the period of 14 days, the Purchaser-entrepreneur acknowledges that the purchase price paid may and can be refunded less the reduced value of the goods in question.
If the product in question cannot be returned in the condition originally received by the Purchaser, the agreement cannot be withdrawn or delivery of a new product claimed. This does not apply if:
- The condition changed due to the inspection of the product for defects.
- The product was used by the Purchaser before the product was found defective.
- The product cannot be returned in the original condition for reasons other than beyond control (wilful act or neglect) of the Purchaser. OR
- The product was sold by the Purchaser before the product was found defective, consumed by the Purchaser or altered by the Purchaser in ordinary use. If only a part of the product was used, consumed or altered, the Purchaser returns to SP everything that can be returned and compensates SP up to the amount of benefit received from using the product.
Purchasers failing to report the defect in due course cannot withdraw from the agreement.
V. Personal Data Protection and Security
SP represents and warrants that all personal data are confidential and such will be used only for the performance of the agreement entered into with the Purchaser and for SP’s marketing purposes (incl. marketing activities performed together with SP’s contractual partners). The personal data will not be published or disclosed to third parties, with the exception of cases where such disclosure is necessary for the distribution of and payment for the ordered goods (name, account number, shipping address) or for special marketing purposes. In handling the personal data, the Purchaser proceeds without detriment to the rights of the entity disclosing the personal data, namely the right to human dignity, and cares for the protection of the private and personal life of the same from unauthorised intervention. The personal data disclosed willingly by the Purchaser for the purposes of placing the order and marketing are collected, processed and stored in compliance with law.

Special promotion prices are valid either until stocks are exhausted (with displayed information as to the number of items in question offered for the special promotion price) or for a limited period.
The “original price” refers to the price for which the goods/services/licences in question were originally offered in SP’s e-shop or the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, excluding any bonuses, promotions, special offers or other discounts; the latter being at all times displayed alongside the selling price, which better reflects the product’s market price level.
The Purchaser acknowledges that SP and the Purchaser need necessarily not enter into the agreement, especially if the goods are ordered by the Purchaser for a price mistakenly quoted on the website due to the internal SP system error of which the Purchaser is informed by SP.
SP reserves the right to declare the purchase agreement void in case of misused personal data, misused payment card, etc. or with reference to the intervention of an administrative or court authority of which the Purchaser is informed by SP. The Purchaser acknowledges that the purchase price cannot be entered into as valid in the aforementioned cases.
The price is stated on the order and in the text message confirming that the order has been placed. Orders can be placed as follows:
a. in the e-shop operated by SP (e-shop); or
b. by email sent to email@example.com

To prevent damage/legitimisation of proceeds of crime (if any), SP or SP’s contractual partners may and can request that the goods paid in advance be collected against a valid identity document (ID card, passport). Unless the said document is presented, the goods in question may and can be refused by SP or SP’s contractual partners to be collected.
Goods purchased with a 0% VAT rate by Purchasers-legal entities being VAT payers at the moment of purchase will be delivered only to the governing body of the legal entity in question or to the person authorised in the submitted authenticated power of attorney.

The Purchaser may refuse to accept the delivery shipped contrary to the purchase agreement, for instance with reference to incomplete or damaged delivery. If accepting the damaged delivery from the shipping company, the Purchaser is to describe the damage in the delivery note of the shipping company.
Incomplete or damaged deliveries must be immediately reported by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the damage be described in the report on damage executed with the shipping company representatives and sent to SP by fax, email or post without undue delay. Any subsequent claims of incomplete delivery or damaged packaging do not limit the Purchaser’s right to claim the warranty; yet, they enable SP to prove that the same do not represent a conflict with the purchase agreement.
The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply.
Any disputes arising between SP and the Purchaser may be settled out of competent court in Czech republic (the palce of the courtyard is allway Czech Republic)
Any disputes arising between SP and the Purchaser is governed by Czech law (de lege ferenda).
The agreement is entered into in the English language. If the agreement is required to be translated for the Purchaser into another language, the English version prevails in case of discrepancies between the two language versions.
