1.2. Order. As soon as the Buyer sends a request for goods via the e-shop, Bonita will subsequently place an order for the Buyer, including the price for the goods. The purchase contract is then concluded at the moment of sending the signed order back to Bonita. The purchase contract may also be concluded if the Buyer sends the demand for the required goods by e-mail to sales@bonita-playgrounds.com, after which the order will be issued by the Company, including the price for the goods. The purchase contract is then concluded at the moment of sending the signed order back to Bonita.

1.3. Purchase Price. The total purchase price must be paid by the Buyer to the bank account of the Company after sending the signed order in advance, within 14 days, unless otherwise agreed in the order.

1.4. Amendment and cancellation of the contract. It is not possible to unilaterally change or cancel concluded contracts; this can only be done on the basis of a mutual agreement, or if it is provided so by law or by these terms and conditions.

  • If certain individual components of the ordered goods are not available, we are entitled to replace these with technically equivalent or higher value items;
  • We are entitled to make partial of products that are part of a single order and can be used separately. Any resulting additional costs shall be borne by us;
  • In the event of force majeure, our delivery times may be extended accordingly.

  • In these cases, the Buyer is not entitled to compensation for any damages caused by the Company as a result of a change or cancellation of the confirmed order.

1.9. Damage to goods during transport. If the goods are to be delivered by a carrier, the risk of damage to the goods passes to the Buyer at the moment of handing over the goods to the carrier. If the goods are damaged after the passing of the risk of damage, the Company is not liable for the damage and the damage to the goods does not affect the Buyer’s obligation to pay the total price and the obligation to accept such goods. If the goods are delivered damaged, the Buyer is obliged to immediately claim damage to the goods with the carrier.
