The online shop is run by the seller on the website https://www.queens.global/ (hereinafter “website”), through a web interface (hereinafter “shop web interface”).
1.2. These terms and conditions further apply to the rights and responsibilities of all contracting parties during the use of the website and other legal relationships.
1.3. Provisions different from terms and conditions can be negotiated in a purchase contract. Divergent agreements agreed on in a purchase contract have precedence over terms and conditions.
1.4. In the instance of a purchase contract concluded between seller and an entrepreneur according to the sec. 420 act no. 89/2012 Sb., from the civil code (hereinafter “civil code”), some of the provisions from these terms and conditions are not applicable. They are partially listed in part 4 of these terms and conditions.
1.5. The provisions from these terms and conditions are an integral part of the purchase contract. The purchase contract and terms and conditions have been established in the Czech language. The purchase contract can be concluded in the Czech language.
1.6. The full terms and conditions can be changed by the seller at any time. The rights and responsibilities that originate from the conclusion of a purchase contract have to be fulfilled according to the date when the purchase contract was concluded and are not affected by a later change.
2. PURCHASE CONTRACT CONCLUSION
2.1. The shop web interface includes all goods offered by seller and their individual prices. Prices include VAT and other related costs. Goods and prices are valid for the period those goods are offered in the shop web interface. This provision does not restrict the possibility of concluding an individual purchase contract. The offer of all goods is not binding and the buyer is not obligated to make a purchase.
2.2. Goods offered in the shop web interface are not legally binding by sec. 1732 act no. 2 of the civil code. They are only an offer for buyer to conclude a purchase contract.
2.3. The shop web interface includes information about shipping costs including packaging and delivery. The information is valid only for deliveries within the Czech Republic. For worldwide shipping, see https://www.queens.global/worldwide/.
2.4. To place an order, buyer fills out an order form in the shop web interface. The order form mainly includes information about:
2.4.1. goods being ordered (the goods are “placed” in the electronic shopping cart of the shop web interface),
2.4.2. payment for the price of the goods and the information necessary to make a delivery of the goods ordered and
2.4.3. delivery costs (hereinafter “order”).
2.5. Before finalizing the order and sending it to the seller, buyer can change the information in the order. Buyer can change any mistakes and/or remove goods from the electronic shopping cart. Buyer will be able to see all the goods that have been placed in the shopping cart, including the price of all goods, the amount of pieces ordered, total price of all goods in the shopping cart, and the delivery costs of the goods ordered. Prices are shown both without VAT and including VAT.
2.6. Buyer sends his/her order to seller by clicking on the “Place order” button. The information provided in the order is considered correct by the seller. Sending the order is the buyer’s offer to conclude the purchase contract.
2.7. After receiving the order, the seller’s automatic system immediately sends a confirmation of receiving the order to the buyer’s email provided in the order or in the shop web interface (hereinafter “email”). This confirmation email contains the text of the terms & conditions in attachment. In case the buyer provided a wrong email and the confirmation of receiving the order cannot be delivered, the seller is authorized to cancel the order.
2.8. The confirmation of receiving the order as 2.7 states above is not a binding conclusion of the purchase contract. Since seller also owns brick and mortar shops, seller is not always able to guarantee the availability of all goods requested in the purchase contract. It stands that the purchase contract comes fully into effect together with the confirmation of the shipment of the goods, which the seller will deliver to the buyer’s electronic address. This confirmation includes the link to access information about the right to terminate the purchase contract.
2.9. Seller is entitled to ask buyer for an additional confirmation of his/her order depending on the type of the order (amount of goods, total price, delivery costs), in a written or spoken form. Seller can also request a specification or a change in the payment and/or delivery of the goods contrary to the purchase contract.
2.10. Buyer is aware that seller is not required to conclude the purchase contract, especially with buyers who have previously broken their responsibilities towards seller.

Costs that originate from using such communication tools are covered by buyer (costs such as internet connection or phone calls) and buyer is aware that the costs might change depending on the conditions provided by his/her service provider.
