- By placing an order — i.e. by clicking the “Buy now” button — you are making a binding offer of purchase. Olando will automatically e-mail you a confirmation of receipt that will also serve as an additional record of your order. This automatic confirmation of receipt merely confirms that Olando has received your order; it does not constitute acceptance of your offer.

- The contract with Olando will only be concluded when Olando sends you a separate e-mail confirming that your order has been shipped. The acceptance deadline will be no more than 7 calendar days.
- Should it be impossible to deliver any of the merchandise you ordered, for example, because the item in question is out of stock, Olando will withhold its declaration of acceptance. No contract will be concluded in this case. We will promptly notify you of these circumstances and promptly refund any payment already received.
- The contract and any correspondence relating to the contract will be written in German or English.
- We will store your order data as specified by law.
Should you lose any of the documents pertaining to your order, please e-mail us at email@example.com. We will gladly send you a copy of the order data we have on record.

Section 4 Return procedures
- For purposes of simplification, we at Olando require you to send us an e-mail requesting a return slip and, once you have received it (also by e-mail), to use it when you return your merchandise. Returns must be sent to the address provided on the slip. The acceptance of returned merchandise does not constitute acknowledgement of any complaint.
- Please note that if the merchandise has deteriorated, you may be obliged to compensate us for the loss in value. You can avoid incurring any obligation to compensate us for any such loss in value by desisting from any activity that could impair the value of the merchandise and refraining from using it as if it were your own property. Otherwise, you should only test or inspect the merchandise in a way that would also be possible in a retail outlet.
- Please note that product packaging such as protective bags for jewellery or high-quality cartons for printed material constitute part of the merchandise ordered. If this packaging is not returned together with the merchandise, this may cause the merchandise to deteriorate significantly. In such cases, Olando reserves the right to request the return of the packaging or to claim compensation for the loss in value.
