2.1 How to place an order
General Magic offers Products and Services via General Magic Websites, Platforms and Apps. These Products and Services may contain or consist of General Magic Content and Third Party Material.
When you would like to order, purchase or in any other form obtain a Product or Service directly from General Magic, you can place an order via a Platform, a General Magic Website or an App.
Any order submitted is subject to acceptance by General Magic. An agreement is concluded upon acceptance by General Magic by way of an order confirmation. General Magic reserves the right to reject any orders in full or in part or to apply a maximum order amount. All orders for Products are subject to stock availability.
2.2 Price and payment
Some Products and Services are subject to payment. Prices indicated for Products and/or Services on the General Magic Websites and App are inclusive of VAT and standard shipping costs and handling charges (if any). You are responsible for any local sales taxes, other taxes and government levies, if any, associated with the order. Prices are subject to change at any time (and subject to clause “Termination and alteration” in the section “General Magic’s Rights” in the chapter “Your Usage” of these Terms and Conditions) but will not affect orders for Products or Services made prior to the date of the change.
Some Services are offered free of charge. General Magic reserves the right to depart from or to cease offering such Services free of charge at any time. General Magic will inform you if a Service is to be offered for a fee in the future. In such event, you may choose to either continue your use of the Services for such fee or to terminate your use of the Service.
All orders must be paid for through the payment service as made available by General Magic. In order to submit orders and use such a payment service you must supply details of your preferred payment method, billing and shipping address (if applicable) and/or any other details necessary to complete the order.
If, for whichever reason, collection through such a payment service should fail, General Magic will invoice you by post for the amount payable, which must be paid by cheque, postal order or credit card within 15 days from the date of invoice.
2.3 Delivery and risk of loss
General Magic will aim to deliver the Product within 30 days of order acceptance. If multiple Products are ordered, General Magic reserves the right to deliver each Product separately. Furthermore, General Magic aims to make Services available within 24 hours after the order acceptance.
A Product will be delivered to your delivery address. A Service will be downloadable or delivered and/or made available to you electronically. The risk of loss or damage to a Product will pass to you at the moment the Product is delivered to you. The risk of loss or damages to a Service will pass to you at the moment the Service is made either available to you or delivered to you electronically.
If you do not take delivery of the Product, General Magic reserves the right to charge you for the reasonable cost of storing the Product until delivery can be made.
If delivery to you should fail for any reason outside of General Magic’s control, General Magic reserves the right to cancel the agreement and refund any monies paid.
If General Magic by mistake delivers a Product to you or delivers and/or by mistake makes available a Service to you, please contact General Magic in order to receive further return instructions (email at email@example.com).
3 Your cancellation rights of orders
For Products purchased via General Magic, you have a right to cancel the purchase agreement for any reason for a period of 14 days commencing on the date of delivery to your delivery address. General Magic will refund the purchase price and original shipping costs actually paid (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from its choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us, or where multiple Products were ordered and not all Products purchased are returned). General Magic will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for your initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise.
To exercise your cancellation right you must inform General Magic about your decision by contacting General Magic during the 14 days following delivery by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain an authorisation number for the return of your order.
Subsequently, you should without any delay return the Product, free of all interests, liens, or claims otherwise, to the address mentioned on the postage label that you receive when you have obtained an authorisation number for the return of your order.
If you decide to cancel the purchase agreement and return the Product to General Magic, you will be liable for any diminished value of the Product resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the Product.
You accept that General Magic may charge you for any shipping or postage costs incurred directly associated with returning the Product.
For Services obtained via General Magic you agree that the performance of Services by General Magic will commence immediately – or at least as soon as possible – on General Magic’s acceptance of your order and that you relinquish your 14 day cancellation right upon performance.
For Apps, obtained via General Magic or a Reseller you agree that the performance of the Apps obtained by you will commence immediately – or at least as soon as possible – after you have downloaded the App and that you relinquish your 14 day cancellation right upon performance.
