The business relationship between Webcraft GmbH and the purchaser is governed by national law and, in addition, the version of Webcraft GmbH General Terms and Conditions (GTC) that are in effect at the time of purchase. Webcraft GmbH will not accept any deviations of the purchaser from the General Terms and Conditions unless they have approved them in writing.
Once you have entered an online order with supermagnete.fr and have clicked the "Order with duty of payment" button, you have entered into a binding agreement to purchase the items in your shopping cart. We will confirm your order and its contents immediately via e-mail, and the contract of sale will be complete.
All shop prices include the statutory French VAT of 19.6%. Businesses are eligible for tax free intracommunity deliveries if a valid VAT Reg.No. is indicated at the time of the order.
The minimum order requirement is EUR 15,00. For orders under this amount, we will add a surcharge of EUR 7,00.
The insured package will be sent from Germany. The delivery in France will be carried out by ColiPoste / La Poste or by DHL. The cost of shipping is EUR 6,50. (For custom-made orders or large quantities different shipping and handling charges may be negotiated.)
During completion of your order, you will have the opportunity to choose your method of payment. Webcraft GmbH will normally deliver your order only after payment has been received. In the case of delivery against an invoice, the net invoice amount is payable within 30 days with no deductions.
If we deliver your ordered items prior to payment, the delivered items remain the property of Webcraft GmbH until full payment is made.
Shipments will be sent on our risk, registered and insured via DHL (with the Deutsche Post). We retain the right to choose other shipment services, as necessary.
The customer must bear all risks of loss or damage to the goods from the time they have been delivered.
Neodymium magnets are not intended for use in or export to the USA, Canada or Japan. You are strictly prohibited from directly or indirectly exporting the neodymium magnets that you received from us or the end products that you produced from those magnets to the countries mentioned above.
Ferrite magnets and ferrite products, however, can be exported worldwide without restrictions.
Delivery delays that happen during the transport by mail are outside of our sphere of influence and we can therefore not be held liable for it.
All articles that you ordered in our online shop are in stock and can be shipped without delay. If an article is temporarily not in stock, you cannot put it in your cart in the online shop.
Delays with shop articles can therefore only occur due to waiting time for an incoming pre-payment. Depending on your mode of payment, it can take several days until we receive your payment in our account. The ordered articles remain reserved for you during this waiting period and will be shipped within one business day after receipt of payment. You can reduce the waiting time if you send us proof of payment (via fax or e-mail) or if you choose a quicker mode of payment, e.g. credit card.
Our offer will include the approximate production time we will need for the manufacture of your custom order. As a general rule, we will arrange for shipment within this time limit.
If the shipment of your magnets is delayed by more than 7 days, we will grant you a price reduction according to the following list:
|over 21 days||20%|
If delivery is delayed for more than 21 days, you have the right to cancel your purchase at no cost to you. Other claims for compensation due to delayed delivery are excluded.
Quotations for large quantities indicate an approximate delivery date that can be expected with an immediate order. However, the quoted quantities are not reserved for you at the time of quotation. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that this delivery date is still valid by the time you accept our offer. Only after you accept our offer, we can give you an order confirmation with a definite delivery date. If we cannot keep this delivery date and there is a delay of more than seven days, you can withdraw from our contract without penalty. Further claims for damages due to delayed delivery are not valid.
Warranty is conform with statutory regulations.
Webcraft GmbH guarantees the functional efficiency of delivered magnets. Products which are damaged during use cannot be returned or exchanged. This includes:
a) for neodymium magnets:
- Flaking and wear of the surface coating:
The surface coating of the magnets can flake or chip during improper use, especially when magnets are allowed to collide. Furthermore, it's possible that a thin layer of coating may be worn away due to constant handling.
- Breaking of the magnets:
Neodymium magnets can break if dropped to the floor or if two magnets collide. Broken magnets are not covered by the Warranty and can therefore not be replaced.
- Loss of magnetism due to high temperatures:
All of our neodymium magnets are - unless otherwise mentioned - heat-resistant up to 80 degrees Celsius. If the magnets are exposed to higher temperatures, they lose a portion of their magnetism.
b) for ferrite magnets:
- Fine cracks and jagged edges:
Ferrite magnets can have fine cracks in the surface and jagged edges. This is a product feature due to its production method (sintering) and not a product flaw.
- Loss of magnetism due to high temperatures:
All our ferrite magnets are heat resistant up to a temperature of 250 Grad Celsius. When exposed to higher temperatures they lose part of their magnetisation.
- Demagnetisation by neodymium magnets:
Strong neodymium magnets can demagnetise or reverse the polarity of ferrite magnets. Those two magnet types have to be stored or transported at a distance of at least 3 cm from each other.
The statute of limitations is 24 months and begins at the delivery of your order.
The transfer of warranty claims to third parties is excluded.
