1. Conclusion of contract and terms of payment
Orders are possible around the clock. All online offers of GVS are non-binding and subject to change. With the order a price fixing takes place. After completion of the order process, the order confirmation will be sent to the customer's email address.
After placing an order, the customer is obliged to make the payment immediately, within three working days. GVS reserves the right to reject orders, for example in the case of obvious errors, and will inform the customer of this immediately. The invoice will be issued immediately upon receipt of payment. With this invoice GVS confirms the order. The invoice will be sent to the customer or handed over personally.
All prices for shipping and collection include Austrian taxes. For shipping to other EU countries, the respective country VAT rate will be applied. This may result in an increase in the final customer price. For shipping to non-EU countries, the customer has to bear the additional costs (customs duties, import taxes,..).
All prices are quoted by GVS on the basis of the development of rates on the financial markets and are valid for collection from GVS's registered office; to this must be added the costs of any delivery, including insurance. The price at the time of the order by the customer shall always be binding, even if prices should change in the meantime.

In the event of late payment, GVS may withdraw from the contract without setting a grace period and without a reminder.

4. Exclusion of the right of withdrawal
In the case of orders for precious metals, according to § 18 of the Distance and Outward Transactions Act, withdrawal is NOT possible.

Any visible defects must be immediately confirmed in writing by the person delivering the goods. Incomplete or lost deliveries must be reported to GVS immediately. The risk shall pass to the customer upon collection of the products by the customer or a person appointed by the customer, as well as upon delivery of the products to the address specified by the customer.
