2.2 Service Order
2.2.1 Using the Software, the Ordering Party selects a Photo Product and its production process and creates its visual design.
2.2.2 At the moment when the Ordering Party considers the e-version of the Photo Product to be complete, he/she is authorized to order its production by the Producer by clicking on the "Order" button, which will direct them to the order form, as part of which they enter the number of copies, means of payment and delivery instructions for the Photo Product. Prior to submitting the Order Form the Ordering Party will see a summary of all aforementioned data, the price for creating the Photo Product, transport costs for delivery of the Photo Product and possibly other taxes and fees, should the Ordering Party need to pay them. Prior to submitting the Order Form the Ordering Party has the option of checking and verifying all data and editing it, or they can opt not to send off the Order Form.

Provided the Ordering Party does not give his/her consent, the Order cannot be sent.
2.2.4 Dispatch of an Order by clicking on the Software‘s "Confirm Order" button is considered to be the Ordering Party’s proposal for entering into a Contract.
2.3 Confirmation of Receipt of Order and Creation of Contract
2.3.1 The Producer’s automated system will immediately, upon receipt, confirm the Order’s delivery with an email sent from the Producer’s server. The confirmation of the Order will contain all information on the ordered Photo Products, part of which are these Sales Terms and Conditions.
2.3.2 Confirmation of receipt of an Order by the Producer per Art. 2.3.1 does not mean acceptance of the proposal to enter into a Contract by the Ordering Party. The Contract is entered into at the moment when the Ordering Party receives at its submitted email address a binding confirmation of the Order by the Producer. The Producer will send a binding confirmation of receipt of the Order once it has received payment for the Order, provided the Ordering Party and the Producer have not agreed otherwise.
2.3.3 The Producer reserves all rights to not enter into a Contract with an Ordering Party, who has previously breached its contractual obligations in a severe way, i.e. did not pay for an order to produce Photo Products or repeatedly did not pick up packages.
2.3.4 The Producer thus in the spirit of § 1740 of the Commercial Code excludes in advance the possibility of accepting an offer (a proposal to enter into a Contract) with an addendum or reservation. This provision is mutual; a Contract is always entered into based on the acceptance of the offer by the other party without reservation.
2.3.5 Based on a concluded Contract the Producer commits itself to creating a work, i.e. produce Photo Products and deliver them to the Ordering Party. The Ordering Party agrees to pay the cost of creating/producing the Photo Product, provided it has not done so.

The Ordering Party acknowledges that the amount of these costs can depend on the terms for its internet or telephone connection that its uses for communications with the Producer, i.e. for entering into a Contract.
2.4 Application of the Sales Terms and Conditions, Application of Czech Law and Contract Language
2.4.1 A Contract concluded between the Producer and the Ordering Party is governed by the Commercial Code. If the Ordering Party is an Ordering Party-Consumer per the terms of provision § 419 of the Commercial Code, the Contract is governed both by the relevant provisions of the Commercial Code regulating work contracts (§ 2586 and following of the Commercial Code) and also the general terms for consumer contracts (§ 1810 and following of the Commercial Code).
2.4.2 If the Ordering Party is an entrepreneur/businessperson according to provisions in § 420 – 421 of the Commercial Code, then the relevant provisions of the Commercial Code are applicable. Provisions on commitments from contracts concluded with a consumer (§ 1810 and following in the Commercial Code) do not apply to a relationship between the Producer and an Ordering Party-Entrepreneur/Businessperson.
2.4.3 Provided it is not further stipulated in these Sales Terms and Conditions that a specific article or group of articles in these Sales Terms and Conditions are used only for a Ordering Party-Consumer or otherwise for an Ordering Party-Entrepreneur/Business, then these Sales Terms and Conditions are used for all Contracts regardless of whether the Ordering Party is a consumer or an entrepreneur/business client.
2.4.4 For relations stemming from this Contract Czech law is applied. The Contract can be concluded in the Czech, Slovak, German or English languages.
3. PAYMENT CONDITIONS, DELIVERY AND ACCEPTANCE CONDITIONS
3.1 Payment Conditions
3.1.1 Given that Photo Products are unique products created in electronic form by the Ordering Party, the Producer always asks for payment in advance.
3.1.2 The Ordering Party is authorized to choose, when filling in the Order Form, from the means of payment offered by the Producer. Individual payment methods are listed on the Producer’s webpage on the Contact subpage.
3.1.3 The cost is considered paid at the moment when the full amount is written onto the Producer’s bank account.
3.1.4 The Ordering Party can pay the cost or use a discount on the cost, also cash in a gift card or discount voucher; in such cases he/she must enter the relevant discount code into the relevant field on the Order Form.
3.1.5 Per the terms of the Czech Act on Electronic Payment Receipts, we are required to issue receipts to our customers. We are also obliged to report earnings online. In the case of a technical failure, we must do so within 48 hours at the latest.
3.2 Deadline for Delivering Photo Products
3.2.1 The Producer sets a delivery date as a timeframe during which it is obligated to hand over the finished Photo Product to the delivery service; deadlines are always calculated from the day of receipt of payment for production of a Photo Product, because the Producer commissions production of Photo Products on the day that payment has been written onto its bank account.
3.2.2 Delivery dates vary based on the type of Photo Product, dates (timeframes) for delivery of Photo Products are shown on the Producer’s website.
3.2.3 The delivery dates for the Photo Product version chosen by the Ordering Party appear on the computer screen prior to submission of the order. Ordering Parties can follow the status of their orders via their User Account; this includes the date of payment to the Producer’s bank account and the delivery date.
3.2.4 Should the Ordering Party make payment via bank transfer and not list the order number assigned to him/her in the payment order, or should they write the order number incorrectly, then the delivery date may be pushed back by an adequate number of days.
3.2.5 Provided the Ordering Party and the Producer agreed explicitly on the immediate commissioning of production of a Photo Product (i.e. prior to payment), the Producer will always send out (deliver) the finished Photo Product only after payment has been made to (written onto) its bank account.
3.3 Means of Delivery and Transport Costs
3.3.1 The Ordering Party stipulates the means and place of Photo Product delivery in the Order Form. The Producer fulfils the obligation to deliver the Goods by dispatching them to the address listed by the Ordering Party in the Order Form.
3.3.2 At the time the Producer dispatches the Photo Products, it provides the Ordering Party access, via his/her User Account, to an electronic invoice (tax document).
3.3.3 Ordering Parties are charged transport costs depending on their chosen means for delivery of Photo Products; this for an amount that the Producer communicates to them when they fill in the Order Form.
3.3.4 In the case that it’s necessary, for reasons caused by the Ordering Party, to make repeat attempts to deliver the Photo Products or to deliver them in a way other than the one shown in the Order Form, then the Ordering Party is obligated to cover the costs associated with the repeat attempts to deliver the Photo Products, i.e. costs associated with the alternative form of delivery.
3.3.5 In the event that the Ordering Party orders delivery of goods outside the European Union, the order may be subject to customs charges that are subject to the laws of the country to which the Photo Products are being delivered. The Ordering Party is liable for paying all taxes, customs charges and other fees associated with such an order. This is because the Producer has no control over such export payments. The Ordering Party, as an importer, must abide by all valid legal obligations for the country to which the Photo Products are to be delivered.
3.4 Transfer of Damage Liabilities for Goods
3.4.1 Ownership rights for Photo Products are transferred to the Ordering Party the moment they are handed over to the Ordering Party.
3.4.2 Damage liabilities for Photo Products are transferred to the Ordering Party at the moment when the Producer hands them to the transport company for the purpose of delivery to the location stipulated in the Contract.
3.5 Review of Photo Products by the Ordering Party
3.5.1 The Ordering Party is obligated to check the state/condition of Photo Products prior to sending them to the Producer (Art. 2.2.4). The Producer does not review/check them prior to printing and is not liable for obvious defects caused by the Ordering Party (i.e. missing parts of sentence texts, poorly cropped photos, etc.).
3.5.2 Furthermore, the Ordering Party is obligated to check the package (materials) prior to accepting them from the transport/delivery service, i.e. whether the package does not show signs of being damaged during the transport process (mainly that the packaging or the cover is not torn, wet/damp or damaged in any other way, provided this is verifiable). In the event the packaging is damaged, the Ordering Party is obligated to check the status of delivered Photo Products. If the products are damaged, he/she is obligated to fill out a report on damages incurred during transport in the presence of the delivery service representative.
3.5.3 Regardless of whether the package shows signs of damage or not, the Ordering Party is always obligated to check the Photo Products immediately upon receipt and submit complaints (request for compensation of damages) to the Producer as soon as they discover them.
3.5.4 The Ordering Party is obligated to inform the Producer about damages to Photo Products incurred during transport even in cases where he/she does not accept delivery of the Photo Products on these grounds. In instances where the Ordering Party does not write out a complaint/refund report or a similar document on the damaged package together with the transport service representative, the Ordering Party cannot then make compensation for damages (see Art. 3.4.2.).
4. WITHDRAWAL FROM CONTRACT
4.1 Withdrawal from Contract by an Ordering Party-Consumer (Art. 4.1 is not applied to an Ordering Party-Entrepreneur)
4.1.1 The Ordering Party-Consumer has the right to withdraw from the Contract without giving reasons and without any sanctions within 14 days of concluding the Contract. In order to meet the deadline for withdrawing from the Contract, it is sufficient to send a message about applying the right to withdraw from the Contract prior to the expiration of the relevant period. However, should the Ordering Party, when filling out the Order Form, explicitly agree to start provision of Services prior to the expiration of the period for withdrawal from the Contract (Art. 2.2.3), then the Ordering Party does not have the right to withdraw from the Contract, provided the Photo Products have already been sent for production. At such a time the Producer can no longer cancel the Order free-of-charge.
4.1.2 The recommended method for withdrawal from the Contract per Article 4.1.1 is written notice of withdrawal sent by email to the Producer’s email address shown in Art. 1.1.1; the form for withdrawal from a Contract without stating reasons is an appendix to these Sales Terms and Conditions. The Ordering Party is not, however, required to use it.
4.1.3 Should the Ordering Party-Consumer withdraw from the contract per Art. 4.1.1. justifiably, the Producer is obligated within 14 days of delivery of the withdrawal notice to return to the Ordering Party moneys paid including already paid costs for delivery of Photo Products; and this in the same way that the Ordering Party sent the moneys to the Producer. The Producer is authorized to return payment in a different way, but only if the Ordering Party agrees with this and no further costs are incurred by the Ordering Party.
4.1.4 The Ordering Party-Consumer also has the right to withdraw from the Contract on grounds of severe breach of Contract by the Producer, mainly if the Producer will have a delay of more than 21 days in delivering the Photo Products. Such withdrawal from the Contract has to be justified (argued) by the Ordering Party: in the withdrawal notice the Ordering Party will list the Order Form number and date of order shown in the confirmation of receipt of the Order Form. Article 4.2.3 is to be used adequately.
4.2 Withdrawal from the Contract by an Ordering Party-Entrepreneur
4.2.1 The Ordering Party-Entrepreneur is authorized to withdraw from a Contract only in cases of severe breach by the Producer, mainly if the Producer will have a delay of 21 days or more in delivering the Photo Products.
4.2.2 Withdrawal from the Contract must be done in written form. In the withdrawal notice the Ordering Party will list the Order Form date and number shown in the confirmation of receipt of the Order Form.
4.2.3 Should the Ordering Party-Entrepreneur withdraw from the Contract on justifiable grounds, the Producer is obligated to return the Ordering Party moneys paid by bank or electronic transfer to the Ordering Party’s account from which payment was made.
4.3 Withdrawal from the Contract by the Producer
4.3.1 The Producer is authorized to withdraw from the Contract on grounds of severe breach of Contract on the part of the Ordering Party. This is understood to be mainly delay in payment for services or part of the payment. In the event the Ordering Party is late with payment, the Producer reserves the right to not deliver further Photo Products for the period during which the Ordering Party is late with payment of any monetary debt owed to the Producer.
4.3.2 The Producer is also authorized to withdraw from the Contract in the event that the print materials sent by the Ordering Party are not suitable for print (i.e. they are incomplete or damaged) or if their content does not comply with valid laws.
4.3.3 The Ordering Party has the right, in the event the Producer withdraws from the Contract, to return of moneys already paid for production of the Photo Product. In the case of severe breach of Contract by the Ordering Party, the Producer is authorized to carry out unilaterally a calculation of all provable debt (mainly on grounds of increased costs or damages incurred) that has arisen as a consequence of breach of obligations by the Ordering Party. This amount is to be deducted from the sum owed the Ordering Party by the Producer prior to return of payment.
5. QUALITY GUARANTEE, DEFECTS, REFUNDS
5.1 Photo Product Defects and Quality Requirements
5.1.1 The Producer is liable for ensuring the Ordering Party that the Photo Products have no defects at the time of handover. The Producer is mainly liable to the Ordering Party that at the time of handover the Photo Products

5.2 Time limit on application of rights to claim defects, quality guarantee for the Ordering Party-Consumer

The quality guarantee applies to material defects, functional defects and defects having arisen during production.
5.2.3 Should the Contract or the warranty statement per Art. 5.2.1 call for different warranty periods, the longer period is valid, unless the Producer and the Ordering Party have explicitly agreed otherwise. But not even the provisions on a shorter warranty period change the fact that the Ordering Party is authorized to apply rights to report defects per Art. 5.2.1, while shortening of this period is not taken into consideration.
5.2.4 The provisions of Art. 5.2.1-5.2.3 are not applied and the quality guarantee is not applied and the Producer is not liable in cases listed in Art. 5.1.2.

The Producer will inform the Ordering Party about the results of the refund process by sending a refund protocol per Art. 5.4.4 in electronic format (i.e. via email).
5.4.4 The Producer will prepare a refund protocol for the Ordering Party-Consumer in the spirit of § 19, par. 1 of the Act No. 634/1992 Coll., on Consumer Protection including a minimum of

d) results of review of the returned Photo Products, i.e. including photo documentation from the Ordering Party or the Producer;

5.4.5 The Producer is obligated to send the Ordering Party a Refund Protocol to the Ordering Party’s email address.

a) removal of defects that can be removed; in such a case the Ordering Party will agree if and how they will return the defective Photo Product at cost to the Producer. The Producer will carry out repairs free-of-charge in an adequate amount of time, within 30 days of delivery of the defective Photo Product at the latest, or
b) provide an adequate discount on the price in the case of minor, irreparable defects, or
c) withdrawal from the Contract, provided the Photo Product has a larger amount of minor irreparable defects (more than three), unless in such a case the Ordering Party opts for delivery of a new Photo Product.
d) withdrawal from the Contract, should the Photo Product have a major irreparable defect, or
e) production of a replacement Photo Product within a period of 14 days of the date on which the Producer acknowledges the right to refund.
5.5.3 The Ordering Party will tell the Producer which refund option he/she chooses at the time of reporting the defect (when requesting a refund) or without unnecessary delay after reporting the defect.
