For interface connections, such as Shopify, by activating the interface mentioned, the customer agrees that orders transmitted to us by the shop system may be processed and invoiced. This can be objected to as long as the status of the order is “in production”. Subsequent cancellation is not possible if individualized production has already begun.

 

 

 

3.  Contract language, contract text storage

 

The language (s) available for the conclusion of the contract: German

 

4.  Contractual Obligations

 

 

  • Obligation to perform, replacement delivery

MarketPrint's obligation to provide services is during the term of the contract

to maintain a portfolio of printable products (textiles, etc.), which can be seen in the product overview of the MarketPrint app. From this product portfolio, customers should be able to select which products (in which colors, sizes, etc.), provided with the respective customer design, should automatically be offered for sale in their respective shops. MarketPrint will also print the products from the product portfolio that are ordered by end customers via the MarketPrint App with the ordered design and deliver them to the end customer within the delivery times specified in the offer for the respective countries. MarketPrint will periodically communicate changes to the prices of its goods and services to the customer.

 

If a product from the portfolio is no longer available due to the respective manufacturer, MarketPrint reserves the right to temporarily use a replacement product that is at least equivalent. In individual cases there may be minor deviations compared to the original product. This results in no additional costs for the customer, even if the replacement product is of higher quality.

 

(2)  Optional storage

As part of the MarketPrint app, MarketPrint optionally offers, in addition to the print-on-demand products from MarketPrint's portfolio, the ability to store other products offered by the customer in their online shop at their request for a fee and to ship them to the end customer's order.

 

The customer can submit a storage request via the MarketPrint App. The price depends on the individual space requirements of the products and goods to be stored. We calculate the space required based on size and number of pieces and make the customer an offer, which they must bindingly agree to. Only then do costs arise.

 

(3)  Optional returns service

MarketPrint also offers customers an optional returns service as part of the MarketPrint app. Returns of printed textiles are checked by MarketPrint according to the following criteria:

 

  1. Are the returned products unworn (free of sweat, deodorant, perfume residue or similar)?

 

  1. Are the returned products otherwise free of defects and undamaged (free of holes, tears, dirt or similar, applies to textiles and printing)?

 

  1. Product type and size in combination with the motif

 

Defective and unworn returns will be stored by MarketPrint at the customer's request. If the same item is ordered again, the stored return item can be sent instead of new production in order to avoid new production.

 

This option can be booked via the MarketPrint app in the customer's online access. Costs will only be incurred once the order confirmation has been received, which the customer receives by email.

 

(4)  Optional branding

Optionally, MarketPrint offers a branding service as part of the MarketPrint App, in which the items printed by MarketPrint can be provided with the customer's own label. For this purpose, MarketPrint offers various types of labels, which can be optionally added to the cost.

 

This option can be booked as part of the MarketPrint app via the customer's online access. There he can choose from the various label and insert options and submit his desired design. Before making the binding booking, he receives a preview to view, which he must approve for production. Only then will the agreed costs be incurred.

 

5.  Delivery conditions

 

  • In addition to the stated product prices shipping costs may still apply. For further details on any applicable shipping costs, please refer to the offers.

 

We only deliver by shipping. Unfortunately, a self collection of the product is not possible.

 

  • As soon as we have handed over your order to our service provider DHL or Deutsche Post, the risk of damage to the goods and possible loss passes to you. Claims for loss and damage must be reported to us no later than 30 days after the estimated delivery date. We accept no liability for missed delivery dates due to incorrect information/typing errors in changes to the delivery address that can no longer be taken into account after the order has been placed. You have the option to cancel the order (if the order is still unprocessed) and place it again. We reserve the right to pause or cancel the order if there is incorrect or missing information in the delivery address.

 

  • In individual cases there may be a delay due to various factors (delivery bottlenecks, public holidays, high capacity utilization). We assume no liability or pay compensation for late deliveries.

 

 

 

6.  Payment

 

The following payment methods are generally available to you in our MarketPrint app:

9.  Transport damage

 

If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, please report such errors to the delivery company as soon as possible and contact us immediately.

However, they help us to assert our own claims against the freight carrier or the transport insurance.

 

 

 

10.  Intellectual Property

 

We respect intellectual property rights and ask that you do the same. All graphics, photos and files you upload remain your property and you are solely responsible for them.

  1. In the event of defects, we will, at our discretion, provide warranty through repair or subsequent delivery. If the defect cannot be remedied, you can either request a reduction in price or withdraw from the contract. The elimination of defects is deemed to have failed after an unsuccessful second attempt, unless the nature of the item or the defect or other circumstances indicate otherwise. In the event of repair, we do not have to bear the increased costs that arise from moving the goods to a location other than the place of performance, provided that the delivery does not correspond to the intended use of the goods

 

  1. The warranty period is one year from date of delivery. The shortened deadline does not apply: – to culpably caused damages attributable to us resulting from injury to life, body or health and to other damages caused intentionally or through gross negligence; – if we fraudulently concealed the defect or provided a guarantee for the quality of the item

11.2. Production-specific features, complaints

    • minor color variations between two or more orders,
    • slight color differences compared to a previous order,
    • Dimensional tolerances due to production and material
  • We would like to point out that due to individual image scaling, the print result may visibly differ from the resolution of an original. This means that the larger the image scaling, the lower the image resolution and thus the resulting print quality. MarketPrint is not liable for poor quality print products resulting from low resolution of files uploaded by the customer.
  • The liability limitations resulting from paragraphs 1 and 2 do not apply if the provider fraudulently concealed the defect or provided a guarantee for the quality of the item. The same applies if the provider and the customer have reached an agreement on the nature of the item. The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain unaffected.

Deviations include color representations, motif positioning, sizes and orientations, image sections, text information, availability and delivery times.

 

  • In the event of availability or other delivery problems, MarketPrint reserves the right to issue a replacement blank for printing and order processing. MarketPrint guarantees that these are products of at least the same quality standards.

As far as essential contractual obligations are concerned (consequently those obligations whose compliance is of particular importance for achieving the purpose of the contract), liability is also assumed for minor negligence.

14.  Final Provisions

  • German law applies. For consumers, this choice of law applies only to the extent that this does not remove the protection afforded by mandatory provisions of the law of the state of the consumer's habitual residence (favorable principle).
  • The place of performance for all services arising from the business relationships with us and the place of jurisdiction is our registered office, provided that you are not a consumer but a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law.
