5. Purchase and orders
5.1. When a customer purchases a product through our website, the customer enters into a binding contractual agreement with us for the purchase of those products. We only sell normal household quantities to customers for their own private use.
5.2. Product orders are automatically processed through the shop system available on our website. Customers will generally receive an immediate confirmation of purchase. An automated confirmation of receipt does not by itself represent an acceptance, but rather a mere notification that we have received the order and it is being processed.
We will, therefore, confirm the order separately. We, however reserve the right for the purpose of simplification and acceleration, to connect the acceptance with the confirmation of receipt so that the customer will, if applicable, receive both together.
5.3. Should the order confirmation sent by us feature typing or printing errors or should our price stipulation be based upon transmission errors for technical reasons, then we are entitled to contestation, whereby we must prove our error towards the customer. Already made payments will be reimbursed immediately in this case.
6. Delivery, reservation of the self-delivery and right of retention
6.1. The delivery of any orders will be carried out by one of our shipping service providers. We would like to point out that we only deliver within the delivery territory defined in Section 1.6 and, for organisational reasons, a refund of the value of any added tax by us is not possible.
6.2. Should not all ordered products be in stock, we shall be entitled to make partial deliveries at the costs of the customer insofar as this is deemed reasonable for the customer.
6.3. We explicitly reserve the right to cancel the contract if we should not be in the position to deliver the ordered product without this being our own fault as the supplier does not satisfy its contractual obligations for the product ordered by the customer. In such a case we will inform the customer immediately about the inability to deliver the goods and will immediately reimburse any payments which have already been paid to the customer.
6.4. If there is a delay in the delivery as a result of natural disaster, force majeure, war, or strike of the suppliers of EIS, we reserve the right to subsequently carry out the delivery immediately after the reason ceases to apply.
6.5. A right of retention can only be exercised by the customer if the existing counter-claim is based upon the same contractual relationship. If this is not the case, a right of retention on your part shall be deemed as excluded.
7. Reservation of title
Any delivered goods shall remain our property until we receive full payment from the customer. A pledge, assignment as collateral, processing or re-design is not permitted before the transfer of ownership without our explicit consent.
8. Shipment and payment
8.1. The statutory value added tax and other price components is included in all presented prices. All previous prices and other details concerning goods will become invalid when the website prices are updated. The price that is valid at the time when an order is placed shall be the decisive price.
8.2. We do not charge any shipping costs with the purchase and the subsequent standard shipment of our goods.
8.3. The payment of the goods ordered from our company will be carried out by through third party payment processors, such as PayPal. We would like to point out that your credit card will be charged after receipt of the order.
8.5. In the event of a return debit due to insufficient coverage of the stated bank account, owing to an objection to our debit, or an inaccurate entry of the bank details, the customer is responsible for bearing any additional fees or costs incurred as a result of the problematic payment transaction. If the customer proves that the fees were lower in an individual case, the customer will only be obliged to pay the lower amount.
8.6. In case of a customer’s unjustified refusal to accept the goods delivered by us, we will charge the customer the incurred costs for the delivery, which will be at least EUR 10 gross. Our right to fulfilment of the purchase contract shall remain unaffected hereby. If the customer proves that the fees were lower in an individual case, the customer will only be obliged to pay the lower amount.

All customers moreover enjoy an additional 365 days money-back-guarantee on all articles after expiry of the statutory right of revocation of two weeks (see Section 11 below).
The following conditions will apply in this respect:
EIS constantly makes an effort to exceed the demands of its customers. Therefore, all customers enjoy a 365-day money back promise on all purchases in addition to the 14 days right of revocation as stipulated by law.
You can thus revoke your contractual declaration within 14 days of purchase and after this for 365 days without stating any reasons by sending us a letter or e-mail, and returning the object. Our additional 365-day deadline will begin after expiry of the 14-day statutory deadline for revocation. The timely sending of your revocation or the object itself is sufficient to adhere to the 365-day deadline within the scope of our money-back-guarantee.
Please note that you must bear the postage costs for the return shipment to us yourself when claiming our "money-back-guarantee". We cannot accept and must unfortunately exclude any products that you have already used or opened completely from our 365-day money-back-guarantee.
Please therefore send the goods within the scope of our money-back-guarantee at your own costs including a copy of the invoice, your bank details (so that we can quickly and immediately arrange for the credit of the purchase price) and the reference to credit note to the return address set forth in Section 1.2 above.

Right of revocation
You are entitled to revoke this contract within 14 days without stating any reasons. The deadline for revocation is 14 days from the day, on which you or a third party named by you, which is not the carrier, took possession of the last partial shipment or the last piece.
In order to exercise your right of revocation you must inform us by following the instructions set forth in Section 9.4.4 above, addressed to the company at:
110 WALL STREET
NEW YORK NY 10005.
Phone: +49 800-4450000
Fax: +49 800-4460000
The revocation must be made by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) concerning your decision to revoke this contract. You can use the sample revocation form enclosed with your delivery for this purpose, this is however not stipulated. In order to adhere to the deadline for revocation, it is sufficient if you send the notification about the exercising of the right of revocation before expiry of the deadline for revocation.
Consequences of the revocation
If you revoke this contract we have to repay you all payments, which we have received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of the additional costs, which arise from the fact that you chose another type of delivery than the most reasonably priced standard delivery offered by us) immediately and no later than within 14 days from the day, on which we received the notification about your revocation of this contract. We will use the same means of payment for this repayment that you used with the original transaction, unless explicitly otherwise agreed with you. In no way will you be charged fees for this repayment. We can refuse the repayment until the goods have been returned to us or until you have provided the proof that you have returned the goods – depending on which is the earlier time.
You have to return or hand over the goods to us immediately and, in any case, no later than within 14 days from the day, on which you inform us of the revocation of this contract. The deadline is deemed as adhered to if you send the goods before expiry of the deadline of 14 days.
You will bear the direct costs for returning the goods. You only have to pay for a possible loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is a result of a handling of the goods that is not necessary in order to examine the condition, properties and functionality of the goods.
End of the revocation instructions
The right of revocation shall not exist in case of contracts concerning the delivery of sealed goods, which are not suitable for being returned due to reasons of health protection or hygiene, if their sealing was removed after delivery and in case of contracts for the delivery of sound or video recordings or computer software in a sealed packaging if the sealing was removed after the delivery.
The right of revocation shall not exist in case of contracts for the delivery of sound or video recordings or computer software in a sealed packaging if the sealing was removed after the delivery.

11.2. Please avoid damages and contamination to the goods. Please return the goods to us as far as possible in the original packaging with all accessories and with all packaging parts. If applicable use protective surrounding packaging. If you no longer possess the original packaging please ensure sufficient protection against damages in transit by using suitable packaging in order to avoid claims for damages owing to damages resulting from deficient packaging.
11.3. Please ensure sufficient postage is paid for the package in order to avoid a surcharge for receipt of the parcel. We will then refund you the postage costs immediately if these are not to be borne by you.
11.4. Please note that the compliance with the acts presented in Section 11.2 and 11.3 is not the pre-requisite for the effective exercising of the right of revocation.
12. Agreement regarding the exercising of the right of revocation by consumers
Consumers within the meaning of the law and according to these Terms have the possibility to exercise their right of revocation with distance selling contracts by returning the goods. For the effective and timely exercising of the right of revocation within the deadline for revocation of 14 days according to the revocation instructions the consumer is obliged to explicitly mark the goods with the return shipment so that the return shipment can be recognised as a revocation by us. If several goods are returned to us within one return shipment of goods then the consumer must make it clear which of the returned goods is to be covered by the exercising of the right of revocation with distance selling contracts. If the goods are not marked when several goods are returned or if the returned goods are not marked or designated as a revocation then the right of revocation by a return shipment is not effective and has not been exercised within the deadline, subject to further possibilities for revocation used by the consumer.
The statutory warranty provisions shall apply. The warranty period will begin when the goods are handed over.
14. Additional 15 year warranty
In addition to the warranty stipulated by law we offer you a warranty for a total of 15 years according to the following provisions. The warranty period is 15 years and will begin with the expiry of the statutory warranty period. Excluded from the 15-year warranty period are condoms, lubricants, massage oil, aphrodisiacs and CDs. If you wish to refer to a warranty case towards us you must return the goods to us.
In this case you must first of all bear the shipping costs yourself. Should the incoming inspection on our part then determine a warranty case according to these provisions and we send you a replacement, we will refund you the postage costs for the most reasonable shipping method.
Please send the goods with reference to the warranty to:
480 N York Rd
Bensenville IL 60106
You must enclose a copy of the original invoice with the complaint. We request your understanding that we have to refuse a complaint without the enclosed respective invoice.
We can only finally calculate the warranty period based on this proof. The requirement to enclose the invoice will, of course, only relate to cases of the additional warranty granted by us. A revocation is, of course, also always possible without enclosing the invoice.
The warranty comprises the warranted properties of the products as were stated in the service/article descriptions. Excluded from the warranty are in particular wear and tear, the full consumption of the goods or defects caused owing to circumstances that occurred owing to wrong use or owing to a conduct, which does not fall in our area of responsibility. If the replacement of the same model is no longer possible we are at liberty to supply you with a corresponding successor model in this case.
Therefore, in particular also damages or defects, which were caused by a use that is not in line with the regulations, an improper handling and/or handling that does not correspond with the intended use and/or result from the failure to comply with possible installation regulations will therefore not fall under the warranty of 15 years granted by us. We shall also exclude the warranty for the cases, with which the defects were caused by the fact that the respective instructions for use have not been complied with.
We, moreover, reserve the right to first of all inspect the products sent by you for the pre-requisites for a warranty as standardised herein. We further politely point out to you that the warranty period itself will not be extended in the event of a warranty. We can, of course, not grant a new warranty period of 15 years once again in these cases. The residual warranty period for the product originally purchase from us will, however, also continue to exist.

18. U.S. Users - Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes and Choice of Law.
THIS SECTION ONLY APPLIES TO U.S. USERS. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. IT CONTAINS PROCEDURES FOR MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
18.1. We Both Agree to Arbitrate.
You and EIS agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms through final and binding arbitration, except to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate EIS’s intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights). Under such circumstances EIS may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the website, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described herein.
18.2. What is Arbitration.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court and seeks to resolve disputes more quickly. Instead of a judge or a jury, the case will be decided by a neutral arbitrator who has the power to award the same damages and relief that a court can. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced.
18.3. Arbitration Procedures.
The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this dispute resolution provision. Arbitration shall be initiated through JAMS. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be referred to and finally determined by arbitration in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures in front of one arbitrator. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms, the rules set forth in this Terms will govern. The JAMS Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. To initiate arbitration, you or EIS must do the following things:
(1) Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a demand for Arbitration at www.jamsadr.com.
(2) Send three copies of the demand for Arbitration, plus the appropriate filing fee to: JAMS to your local JAMS office or to JAMS, Two Embarcadero Center, Suite 1500, San Francisco, CA 94111.
(3) Send one copy of the demand for Arbitration to the other party.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. If travelling to New York is a burden, you may participate in the arbitration by phone or via document submission to the fullest extent allowable by the arbitrator. Each party will bear their own costs of arbitration unless the arbitrator directs that bearing such costs would be an undue burden and in that case, we will pay for your portion of the arbitration administrative costs (but not your attorneys’ fees). Arbitration under this agreement shall be held in the United States in New York, NY under New York law without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The arbitration may award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive relief). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
18.4. Authority of Arbitrator.
The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and EIS, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and the Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and EIS.
18.5. No Class Actions.
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.
18.6. Waiver of Jury Trial.
THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and EIS in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND EIS WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.
18.7. Choice of Law/Forum Selection.
In any circumstances where the Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes permits the parties to litigate in court, these Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, excluding its conflict of law rules. You further expressly consent and agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of a court of competent jurisdiction located in New York, NY.
