The company SEA-CLUB Handels-GmbH, represented by the manager Frank Elzer, Am Leitzelbach 34, 74889 Sinsheim, Germany - subsequently named SEA-CLUB - is wholesaler and importer for gift items, especially nautical gift items. SEA-CLUB goods are exclusively bound for retailers and trading people.  A business between SEA-CLUB and any dealer only takes place on the premises that the latter carries on a trade of such a kind, that the goods obtained are destined only for business activity and not for personal requirement.


These general trade conditions for any kind of business relations between SEA-CLUB and the customers are valid in the respective version to be in force. Conditions differing from these or general trade conditions of the business partner have no validity.

Orders:

The illustrations of our items can slightly differ in reality and do not constitute an obligatory part of contract.  If any order is submitted through our webshop, by mail or fax, by letter, phone or by any other means the committer places a binding order. It is up to us to finally decide if the order is accepted by us. The acceptance of order takes place by order confirmation or by directly forwarding the goods. In case of non-acceptance of an order the orderer will be informed.


Prices:

All prices indicated in our locked login-region are net trade-prices in Euro and have to be understood plus possible forwarding costs and plus legal value added tax in force. SEA-CLUB reserves the right of price increases at any time. In case that price increases overlap with orders already given, we shall inform the orderer accordingly , and ask him for confirmation.  We do not take over any liability for possible mistakes in illustration, description or price of any item.



Packing units:
Our items are mainly available one by one. There are, however, some exceptions, where items are only available in packing units (PU). This is marked accordingly behind the item. When placing an order, however, always the factual number of pieces of an item has to be declared and not the packing unit.

Minimum order:

For new customers the first order has to have a minimum value of 200 ¤ net. For all following orders there is no longer a minimum order value.

Forwarding:

The forwarding of orders usually is effected by parcel service which can be chosen by SEA-CLUB.  Bulky or wide spreading items as well as large quantities may as well be sent by forwarding agent. Delivery always takes place ex warehouse Sinsheim.  Within Germany free forwarding is effected from a 600 ¤ net order value upward. For values lower than this or for export shipments freight charges are added corresponding to the forwarded goods. Forwarding usually takes place immediately after receipt of an order. Specified delivery dates will be respected in the best manner possible. Remarked terms of delivery are only approximate and not binding. In case of delivery delays the customer has no right to claim any damages or compensations. In case some ordered items should not be in stock or available immediately, partial shipment will be effected or the not available items will be cancelled.  The orderer will be informed about sold out items. The items not in stock will be delivered following their value after re-receipt , freight paid, to the orderer after previous information.
