1. General Terms

1.1   All products purchased online at the webshop: www.nordic.argon18.com are subject to and conditional upon compliance with these Terms of Sale and Delivery. Any derogation from these Terms must be agreed in writing between the parties.

1.2  The webshop is owned and operated by:
Argon 18 Europe
Central Business register (CVR) no.: 38 67 74 70
Vassingerødvej 147, DK-3540 Lynge Tel.: +45 3163 8361
E-mail: info.europe@argon18.com
(“Argon 18 Europe”)

1.3  Any purchase made on the webshop will be regarded as a transaction between you as buyer (“Buyer”) and Argon 18 Europe as seller.

2. Placing of orders, order confirmation and purchase agreement

2.1 Upon receipt of an order from the Buyer, Argon 18 Europe will send an order confirmation to the Buyer’s e-mail address, specifying i.a. number, price, expected date of delivery, point of delivery and terms of payment, if the order is accepted by United Cycling. If the Buyer disagrees with the specifications in the order confirmation, then the Buyer must contact United Cycling immediately upon receipt of the order confirmation. However, the amount will not be drawn until the Buyer has picked up the products at the earliest (unless otherwise agreed, e.g. pre-payment).

2.2 If Argon 18 Europe does not send an order confirmation, but informs the Buyer that the order cannot be accepted, then the amount will be paid back to the Buyer as soon as possible, using the same means of payment as used by the Buyer.

2.3 No purchase agreement has been entered into between Argon 18 Europe and the Buyer, until Argon 18 Europe has forwarded an order confirmation.

3. Prices, payment and freight

3.1 Argon 18 Europe sells the products at the prices stated in its webshop in the currency of the given country, including VAT of the given coutry. The current price is the price stated on the website at the time when the order is placed, subject to any misprints.

3.2 Before the Buyer places the order, the Buyer will receive information on the total price inclusive of VAT, taxes and freight charges (which depend on the method and place of delivery).
3.3 Payment may take place using the payment methods that are specified in the webshop.

3.4 NOTE: If the Buyer cancels the transaction, then the costs of returning the products are paid by the Buyer.

4. Pre-Payment

4.1 Argon 18 Europe's products are specifically assembled to the Buyer according to the Buyer's stated specifications. Argon 18 Europe, therefore, requires pre-payment of the purchase amount at the time of notification that the product is ready to be delivered (picked-up) at the agreed point of delivery. This requirement is a condition for ordering a product from United Cycling and is also clearly stated to the Buyer at ordering for the Buyer to explicitly be informed and to accept this condition.

5. Delivery and passing of the risk

5.1 Delivery will take place on the dates specified by Argon 18 Europe in the order confirmation, usually within 1-2 weeks. However, longer delivery times may occur.

5.2 Argon 18 Europe bears the risk of accidental loss of the products until they have been delivered to the Buyer. Delivery is deemed to take place when Argon 18 Europe (or its representative) hands out the product to the Buyer at Argon 18 Europe's business address or at any other address as agreed between Argon 18 Europe and the Buyer.

6. Right of cancellation

6.1 The Buyer may cancel the purchase agreement within 14 days without stating any reason if the Buyer is a consumer within the meaning of section 2 of the Danish Consumer Contracts Act.

6.2 The right of cancellation must be exercised within 14 days of the date when the Buyer or any third party representing the Buyer (other than the carrier):
gets actual possession of the products;
gets actual possession of the last product (if more than one product has been ordered in same order, and the products are delivered individually); or
gets actual possession of the last lot or the last part (if one product consisting of several lots or parts has been ordered).

6.3 In order to exercise the right of cancellation, the Buyer must give Argon 18 Europe express notice to such effect (e.g. by letter, telefax or e-mail). For this purpose, the Buyer may use the form of cancellation (see below), but is not required to do so. The notice should preferably be given by e-mail to info.europe@argon18.com and be accompanied by a copy of the order confirmation.

6.4 The deadline for cancellation will be met if the Buyer gives notice of exercise of the right of cancellation before expiry of the deadline for cancellation.

6.5 If the Buyer cancels the transaction, Argon 18 Europe will refund all amounts received, including all costs of delivery (but not any additional costs incurred as a result of the Buyer’s choice of another delivery method which is more expensive than the standard method offered by Argon 18 Europe), without undue delay and no later than 14 days after the date when United Cycling received the notice of cancellation. United Cycling will refund the amount using the same means of payment as used by the Buyer, unless otherwise expressly accepted by the Buyer. No charges will be imposed on the Buyer as a result of the refund.

6.6 Argon 18 Europe may withhold the refund until the products have been returned to Argon 18 Europe, or until the Buyer has proved that the products have been returned, whichever occurs first.

6.7 The Buyer must return or hand back the products to Argon 18 Europe without undue delay and no later than 14 days after the date of the Buyer’s notice of cancellation. The deadline for cancellation will be met if the Buyer returns the products within 14 days.

6.8 All direct expenses of returning the products are payable by the Buyer. The expenses are expected to be approx. DKK 1,000 at a maximum.

6.9 The Buyer is liable for any impairment of the products caused by handling which is not necessary to determine the type, properties and functionality of the products.

7. Complaints and defects

7.1 The Buyer has a right to complain of defective products in accordance with the Danish Sale of Goods Act.

7.2 If the Buyer is a consumer and wants to rely on a defect, the Buyer must give notice of such defect (complain) to Argon 18 Europe. However, the Buyer cannot rely on a defect if Argon 18 Europe:
has not received notice of the defect within a reasonable time after it ought to have been established by the Buyer, or has not received notice of the defect within two years after the product was delivered to the Buyer.

7.3 If the Buyer wants to exercise its right to complain, the Buyer must contact Argon 18 Europe before returning the product. Argon 18 Europe will then give the Buyer instructions on the procedure to be followed.

7.4 If Argon 18 Europe finds the complaint justified, Argon 18 Europe will refund the Buyer’s reasonable costs of returning the product.

7.5 If the product is defective, Argon 18 Europe will remedy the defect. If Argon 18 Europe finds that remedy is inappropriate, then United Cycling may deliver a substitute product of the same quality or a new product, offer a reasonable pro-rata reduction of the purchase price, or repay the entire purchase price.

7.6 Some of the products sold by Argon 18 Europe may be covered by an additional manufacturer’s guarantee. Such manufacturer’s guarantees are offered to the Buyer by the supplier, and the terms of the guarantee (or a reference to the terms) will be provided to the Buyer together with the products. In order to make a claim under the manufacturer’s guarantee, the customer must contact the manufacturer as described in the terms of the guarantee. Such manufacturer’s guarantees are of no concern to Argon 18 Europe. However, the manufacturer’s guarantee, if any, is without prejudice to the Buyer’s rights in relation to Argon 18 Europe under the Danish Sale of Goods Act.

8. Limitation of liability

8.1 Argon 18 Europe is not liable for any operating loss, loss of profit or other indirect loss. Argon 18 Europe’s liability is in any circumstances limited to the invoice price of the product. In addition to that, Argon 18 Europe is liable in damages under the general rules of danish law subject to the limitations set out in these terms of sale and delivery.

8.2 the limitation of liability in paragraph 8.1 also applies to Argon 18 Europe’s liability for damage to property caused by defective products for commercial use.

10.2 If the Buyer and Argon 18 Europe cannot reach an agreement on a solution, the Buyer may refer the dispute to the Danish Complaint Resolution Centre, using the website www.forbrug.dk if the Buyer is a consumer and if the purchase price is between DKK 1,000 and DKK 100,000.

10.3 If the Buyer is a consumer resident in an EU member state other than Denmark, the Buyer may also file a complaint at the European Commission’s online dispute resolution platform, using this link: ec.europa.eu
