§ 1 Scope, applicable Law

(1) All offers, sales contracts, deliveries and services made on the basis of any orders by our customers (each, a "Customer") through our online shop www.kapten-son.us (the "Online Shop") shall be governed by these general terms and conditions of sale (the "General Terms and Conditions").

(2) Other terms or conditions do not apply, even if we do not especially contradict their application. They are applicable, if their validity is explicitly agreed to in writing.

(3) These business terms and conditions and the complete legal relationship between the contractual Partners shall be exclusively subject to US law.

§ 2 Conclusion of Contract

(1) Our offerings in the Online Shop are non-binding.

(2) Only by clicking ‘Place Order’ you close a legally binding order of all items in your shopping cart. By placing your order you are thus bound for four weeks; your right of revocation as per §3 remains untouched.

Return rights

You are entitled to withdraw from (revoke) your contractual declaration within 30 days without citing any reasons for doing so. The return period of 30 days begins on the day on which you, or a third party nominated by you who is not the carrier, take/takes the goods into possession. To execute your right of withdrawal (revocation), you must inform us, Kapten & Son LLC, by email: care@kapten-son.com; by Contact Form; online chat, text message, or by mail: 134 N 4th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249, United States, of your decision to withdraw from this contract through an explicit declaration (e.g. a letter sent via mail, email, online chat, text message, or contact form). In order to comply with the time limit of the return, it is sufficient for communication concerning the return to be sent to us before the end of the return period.

Consequences of return

If you withdraw from this contract, we must immediately – and at the latest within 14 days after receipt of the announcement of your withdrawal from our contract – refund all payments received from you. The refund is issued to the same method of payment you used on the original transaction (unless an explicitly agreed upon exception has been made); in no case will we charge any fees for this refund. We may withhold a refund until we have received the returned goods or until you have shown proof that you have sent back the goods, depending on which occurs first. You must immediately (at the latest within 14 days after declaration of withdrawal from the contract) return the goods to us. The deadline is met if you ship the goods before the end of the 30-day return period.
