2. Conclusion of Contract


The presentation of the products in the online shop merely represents a tentative offer to order goods from us. By placing a purchase order, you make a binding offer for the conclusion of a purchase contract.

We may decide to accept or reject a purchase order at our own discretion.

Our acceptance of the offer takes place within three working days by sending a separate order confirmation by e-mail or by delivering the goods. A contract for goods not available for delivery will not come into existence, and any money already paid will be refunded within 30 days.

We can only accept purchase orders via the online shop www.akris.ch if the goods are to be delivered to Germany, all other EU countries, and Switzerland, Norway, and Liechtenstein. For purchase inquiries outside these countries, please contact one of our boutiques.

4.2 Delivery Service

We ship within ten working days. Should the ordered goods be unavailable, we will inform you as soon as possible. Partial shipments are expressly permitted. No freight will be charged for supplemental shipments.

Deliveries are handled by FedEx or UPS, which require a signature to confirm the receipt. Therefore, goods cannot be delivered to PO boxes.

4.3 Shipping Costs

All purchases from www.akris.ch are dispatched through our partners FedEx (outside Germany) and UPS (in Germany). For the delivery, we charge shipping costs of EUR 30.00 per purchase order. No further shipping costs are charged for supplemental deliveries.

For special shipping instructions, please contact us by e-mail to ecom.eu@akris.ch.

We will send you a confirmation of dispatch (e-mail, mail) as soon as the shipment has been handed over to the shipping partner. In this way, you can track the status of your shipment at www.fedex.com or www.ups.com.

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the statutory warranty regulations pursuant to Sections 434 ff of the German Civil Code (BGB) shall apply.

A guarantee of the delivered goods shall only exist if expressly stated for the respective item in the order confirmation.

The goods are payable by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club).

7. Lien


The goods remain our property until full payment is made.



Right of Return

You may return the received goods within 14 days by sending them back, without specifying reasons. This period begins upon receipt of this information in writing (e.g. by mail, fax, e-mail), but not before the recipient receives the goods (in the case of recurring delivery of similar goods: not before the first partial shipment is received) and not before the fulfilment of our information obligations pursuant to Section 246 (2) in conjunction with Section 1 (1) and (2) of the Introductory Act to the German Civil Code (EGBGB) and our obligations pursuant to Section 312g (1) sentence 1 of the German Civil Code (BGB) in conjunction with Section 246 (3) of the Introductory Act to the German Civil Code (EGBGB). Only in the case of goods that cannot be sent by parcel (e.g. bulky goods), you can also declare the return in writing in the form of a request for the goods to be taken back. To comply with the period, the due dispatch of the goods or of the request for the goods to be taken back is sufficient. The goods to be returned or the request for the goods to be taken back shall be sent to:

  • Akris Boutique GmbH
  • Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse 13
  • 60313 Frankfurt/Main
  • Germany

Consequences of Returns

In the event of an effective return, the performance received by both parties shall be returned along with any benefits obtained. In the event of deterioration of the goods and for benefits (e.g. usage benefits) that cannot or not fully be returned or only in a deteriorated condition, you shall compensate us accordingly. You only need to pay compensation for the deterioration of the goods and for benefits gained to the extent that the benefits or the deterioration were caused through handling of the goods beyond the inspection of the properties and functions. "Inspection of the properties and functions" refers to the testing and trying out of the goods in a way that would have been possible and customary in a retail shop. Refund obligations must be fulfilled within 30 days. For you, this period begins with the dispatch of the goods or of the request for the goods taken back; for us, it begins upon receipt.

End of the Information on the Returns Policy

9. Applicable Law and Jurisdiction


The laws of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply, under exclusion the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Mandatory provisions of your country of habitual residence remain unaffected.

The courts of Frankfurt/Main, the location of our company's registered office, shall have jurisdiction over all disputes.

Should individual provisions be legally invalid, the other parts of the contract shall nevertheless remain binding.
