*Terms of Sale*

§ 1 DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY
This product is sold as is and without any warranties as to performance or merchantability. All sales are final and as is. This means there are no refunds, returns or exchange. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the goods is with the buyer. If the items purchased from 4woods prove defective following their purchase, the buyer and not 4woods, assumes the entire cost of all necessary servicing and repair.

The seller, sales person, or website may make statements about this product. Any such statements do not constitute warranties. Do not rely on these statements. This product is sold without any expressed or implied warranties whatsoever. Because of the diversity of conditions under which this product may be used, no warranty or fitness for a particular purpose is offered. The user is advised to test the product thoroughly before using it. The user must assume the entire risk of using product.

§ 2 Limitation of Liability
(1) 4woods USA, Inc.. (“4woods”) only bears responsibility for damages, no matter what the legal ground, in the case of deliberate action and gross negligence.

(2) You are responsible for your own negligent use of our dolls. Using the dolls can involve physical activity and you assume the risks associated with engaging with physical activity with our dolls.

(3) Seller is not responsible for any injury that buyer may sustain using this product for whatever reason.

§ 4 General Information
For all your orders in the context of this online offer 4woods is your contracting partner. You are the customer. All services for sale of goods from 4woods to the customer are carried out based on the general terms and conditions given below. These underlie all offers and agreements between 4woods and the customer and are accepted for the duration of the whole business relationship. Opposing or deviating conditions of the buyer are only binding if 4woods has agreed to them in writing.

§ 5 Standard Terms
(1) The “offers“ contained on the website represent a non-binding invitation for the customer to place an order with 4woods.

(2) By filling out and sending an order form on the Internet, the customer makes an offer for a contract of sale or, as the case may be, a contract for work and materials. 4woods sends an order confirmation and payment request via e-mail to the customer. Once payment is received, the contract (order) cannot be cancelled without any exceptions.

(3) 4woods reserves the right to reject any received orders for any reason with notice to the customer.

(4) The contract ends with the complete delivery to the customer supplied address through 4woods’s shipment provider.

§ 6 Delivery / Shipment
(1) Because each doll is handmade starting at the time the order is completed, delivery often takes between 50 and 60 days, but can take longer. The time to hand create a doll can change due to availability of materials, the artist’s work reflecting customer requests, and shipping time contingent on country, customs, and the carrier.  Estimated delivery time initially informed is not a guaranteed delivery time.  In such cases, customers will be notified of changes by 4woods USA.

(2) Delivery is available to the United States, Canada, and Mexico through the 4woods USA website.

(3) Delivery shall be conducted by a shipment service provider chosen by 4woods. The customer has to pay standard shipping costs which may depend on order value, and where the order is shipped to.

§ 7 Prices
(1) For shipping to the United States, the stated prices are final. California customers pay a sales tax of 8.75 percent. Shipping and handling are billed separately and shown separately on the invoice. The shipping address and order amount is decisive for location determination.

(2) For customers from outside the United States, including Canada, all stated prices are net prices. The shipping address is decisive. If, according to the statutory regulations, the goods are subject to sales or other taxes in the recipient country, then these shall be paid additionally upon receipt of the goods. Furthermore, the goods may be subject to import duties which the customer shall pay additionally upon receipt of the goods.

(3) The customer has to pay shipping and handling, which may depend on order value and the delivery location.

(4) Purchase price, along with shipping and handling charges are immediately payable, without deduction prior to shipping.

§ 8 Payment
(1) Payment will be carried out according to the customer´s choice of either direct debit, credit card, advance payment or other payment methods. 4woods reserves the right to limit the method of payment chosen by the customer depending on order value, shipment region or other objective criteria.

(2) 4woods USA customers have the choice to place a 50% security deposit. Because each doll is custom made for each customer, the security deposit is non-refundable. The remaining 50% is due upon notice to the customer of completion of the doll.

(3) In case of the method of payment chosen by the customer not being practicable, where 4woods has met its contractual obligations, in particular if it is the case that a direct debit from the customer´s account is not possible due to a lack of funds or provision of wrong information, then the customer shall reimburse any additional costs incurred by 4woods or a third party which carried out the transaction.

(4) 4woods is entitled to make use of the services of trustworthy third parties for the handling of the payment:

a) If it comes to a default of payment of the customer, 4woods is allowed to assign its claims to a debt collection agency and transfer the personal data required for the handling of payments to these third parties.

b) In the case of intervention of third parties in the handling of payments, then payment in relation to 4woods only counts as made if the amount has been provided contractually to the third party, so that the third party can dispose of it as it sees fit.

§ 9 Technical and Design Deviations
When fulfilling the contract, we expressly reserve the right to deviate from the descriptions and information in our brochures, catalogues and other written and electronic documents with respect to material, color, weight, measurements, design or other features, as far as these can be considered reasonable for the customer. Reasonable cause for change may result from fluctuations customary in trade and technical production processes.

§ 10 PRIVACY
Please review our privacy policy and terms of use. This policy details how we use your data. We will never disclose your personal information except required by law or for payment processing. By purchasing a doll you are assenting to, and incorporating by reference, the Terms of Service, our Privacy Policy, and all the terms contained in the Terms of Sale.
