Conclusion of contract

The delivery area is Germany.


Clicking on the "Buy now" button doesn’t guarantee the purchase of the goods in the shopping cart. The shopping cart will display whether the goods are still in stock. If the goods happen to be sold out at the moment you wish to complete the payment, the shopping cart will stop the payment process.


The order confirmation automatically sent after the order has been paid constitutes an offer made by you to MSI. Receipt of the customer's order at MSI Online Store does not yet constitute acceptance of the customer's offer by MSI Online Store.


A contract is only concluded with MSI Online Store's declaration of acceptance, which is sent in a separate email (order confirmation or shipping confirmation), but no later than when the order is sent. MSI Online Store will declare acceptance either by sending a shipping confirmation or by shipping the goods within five working days of receipt of the customer's order. If MSI Online Store does not submit a declaration of acceptance within this period, the customer's order was not accepted.

 

Availability of goods

If the goods ordered from MSI Online Store are not available at the time of the order, MSI reserves the right not to accept the order of the goods. The customer will be informed of this. Payments already made will be refunded to the customer immediately.

 

Payment

All prices on https://de-store.msi.com/ are in Euros and include the applicable statutory value added tax. Where the price is expressed to be inclusive of value added tax, we have the right to adjust the price at any time before delivery to take account of any increase in value added tax.

The payment methods displayed in the order checkout page are available to the customer.

The credit card data will not be saved at MSI Online Store, but with the selected payment provider. The respective data protection regulations of the payment service provider apply.

 

Retention of title to refunds

MSI Online Store may keep the entire proceeds of sale or otherwise of the goods (including value added tax) in trust until such goods from your exercise of the right of withdrawal (as shown below) have been received by us.


Receipt of the goods

You shall be deemed to receive the goods three (3) days after delivery by the carrier. After receipt, you shall not be entitled to reject goods which are not in accordance with the contract or these terms.


Rejection of the goods

If you properly reject any of the goods which are not in accordance with the contract you shall nonetheless pay the full price for such goods unless you return such goods to us at your cost before the date when payment of the price is due.

 

MSI Online Store’s right of cancellation

If for reasons beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to an inability or failure on the part of the manufacturers or suppliers of the goods to supply the goods to us, and we are unable to supply the goods to you, we may cancel the agreement at any time before the goods are shipped by giving notice to you.
