General Terms and Conditions
The following general terms and conditions (“Terms”) apply to the ordering of products in the Online Shop of Teddylabels Inc., 80 Pine Street, Floor 24, New York, NY 10005,, United States, (“Seller”) offered at www.teddylabels.com. These Terms came into effect October 28, 2021 and may be found at www.teddylabels.com. They were last updated on October 28, 2021.
The Online Shop’s offers are directed exclusively to U.S. residents who are at least 18 years of age (“Buyers”), and are made only on the basis of these Terms. The Terms also apply to companies for all future business relationships, even if they are not expressly agreed to again.
Any conflicting, supplementary, or deviating terms or conditions asserted by the Buyer do not become part of any contract with Seller, unless such terms or conditions are expressly agreed upon between the Buyer and Seller in writing.
2. Conclusion of the contract
The product presentation in the Online Shop, in brochures, in price lists, and in other advertising documents, does not constitute a binding application to conclude a purchase contract with the Buyer. Rather, it is a non-binding invitation to order products from the Seller.
Product images used in the Online Shop are illustrative and may differ from the actual appearance of the product.
By placing an order, the Buyer submits a binding application to conclude a purchase contract. This application is made in the Online Shop by clicking the button labeled “Order Now.”
When ordering in the Online Shop, the Buyer receives an automatically generated email after receipt of his or her purchase offer, with which the Seller confirms that he has received the Buyer’s order (confirmation of receipt). This confirmation of receipt does not yet represent an acceptance of the purchase offer. A contract is not yet concluded with the confirmation of receipt.
A purchase contract for the goods is only concluded if the Seller expressly declares acceptance within two weeks of receipt of the purchase offer from Buyer or if Seller sends the goods to the Buyer without a prior express declaration of acceptance.
3. Right of withdrawal
In the event that the Buyer is a consumer, meaning that he or she enters into the transaction primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, rather than commercial or professional purposes, then the Buyer has a right of cancellation in accordance with the Seller’s cancellation policy.
4. Prices and delivery
The prices quoted in product presentations in the Online Shop, in brochures, price lists, and other advertising material may contain applicable statutory sales tax and other price components, and may also include the respective shipping costs.
In cases in which prices in the Online Shop, in brochures, price lists, and other advertising documents are incorrectly shown due to technical errors, and a purchase contract is concluded on the basis of incorrect prices, the Seller is still entitled to contest the purchase contract even if an automatic order confirmation has been sent. In the event of such a challenge on the part of the Seller, payments already made will be reimbursed to the Buyer as soon as practicable.
Unless otherwise agreed, the products will be delivered to the address given by the Buyer. Deliveries are only possible within the United States of America, its territory and possessions, using valid addresses recognized by the U.S. Postal Service or other major commercial carrier.
In the case that the Buyer is not a consumer, then products are loaded and shipped uninsured at the Buyer’s risk.
If not all of the products ordered are in stock, the Seller is entitled to make partial deliveries, provided this is reasonable for the Buyer. Any applicable deadlines may begin only with the receipt of the last partial delivery.
The delivery of ordered products is subject to availability. If a product is not available at the time of the order, the Buyer will receive a notification of the expected delivery date and the order will be reserved by the Seller. If the expected delivery date communicated by the Seller is more than four (4) weeks in the future, the Buyer can withdraw from his declaration of intent vis-à-vis the Seller by simply declaring within two (2) weeks of the delivery date being communicated. In this case, payments already made will be refunded immediately. Once the product is in stock, it will be shipped to the Buyer without further notification. In case of unavailability, in particular because a limited supply of goods marked as such is exhausted, the Buyer will be informed by the Seller. Payments already made will then be refunded immediately.
5. Payment terms
The purchase price is to be paid immediately after the conclusion of the purchase contract without any deductions.
The purchase price is paid using one of the payment options offered.
If the customer is in default with a payment or if there is a return debit, the Seller reserves the right to assert default damage (e.g., collection fees, dunning fees, interest on arrears, chargeback fees).
6. Obligations of the customer in relation to the customer account
If a customer account exists, the person who was registered in a customer account is responsible for the activities on this customer account. If orders are placed via the customer account, the registered person is considered the Seller’s contractual partner. This does not apply if the person has observed the care specified in Section II with regard to his customer account and is not responsible for any misuse of his customer account.
7. Offsetting / right of retention / retention of title
The Buyer is only entitled to offset if his counterclaim has been legally established or is not disputed by the Seller.
The Buyer can only exercise a right of retention if the counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.
All goods sold by Seller remain the property of the Seller until the purchase price has been paid in full.
- If the Buyer is not a consumer, the following paragraphs also apply:
The Seller retains ownership of the goods until all existing and future claims from the current business relationship with the Buyer have been settled in full (goods subject to retention of title). Pledging or security transfer is not permitted prior to the transfer of ownership of the reserved goods.
- The Buyer is obliged to treat the reserved goods with care and to keep them at his own expense.
- The Buyer is entitled to sell or process the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business. In this case, the Buyer already now assigns to the Seller all claims in the amount of the invoice amount that accrue to him from the resale. The Seller accepts the assignment, but the Buyer is authorized to collect the claims. If the Buyer does not properly meet his payment obligations, the Buyer reserves the right to collect claims himself.
- If the reserved goods are combined and mixed, the Seller acquires co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the invoice value of the reserved goods to the other processed items at the time of processing.
- The Seller undertakes to release the securities to which he is entitled on request insofar as the realizable value of his securities exceeds the claims to be secured by more than 10%. The choice of securities to be released is incumbent upon the Seller.
- The Buyer is obliged to inform the Seller immediately about access by third parties to the reserved goods. He is also obliged to point out the property of the Seller to the respective third party. If the third party is unable to reimburse the Seller for the judicial or extrajudicial costs incurred in this connection, the Buyer shall be liable for them.
- In the event of breach of contract by the Buyer – in particular in the event of default in payment – the Seller is entitled to demand the surrender of the purchased item. After taking them back, which is considered a withdrawal from the contract, the Seller is authorized to use them. The Seller shall offset the sales proceeds less the sales costs against the Buyer’s liabilities.
If the delivered product is defective, the Buyer is entitled to the statutory warranty rights. Normal operational wear and tear and damage caused by improper or excessive use of the product do not constitute a defect.
9. Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability
We disclaim any and all responsibility or liability for the timeliness, accuracy, legality, reliability, and availability of information or material contained on the Online Shop. The Online Shop may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. We disclaim any responsibility for the deletion, failure to store, and poor delivery of any information or material of the Online Shop or the use thereof. The contents of the Online Shop and any communications sent to you by the Online Shop or otherwise from us are provided for informational purposes only.
ALL SERVICES AND INFORMATION OFFERED ON THE ONLINE SHOP ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITH NO WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER. ALL EXPRESS, IMPLIED, AND STATUTORY WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, ACCURACY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS, ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.
Where the law does not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, these exclusions may not apply.
IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY LOST REVENUES, LOST PROFITS, LOST OPPORTUNITIES, OR LOSS OF PROSPECTIVE ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR PERFORMANCE OF THE ONLINE SHOP, ANY COMMUNICATIONS SENT TO YOU VIA THE ONLINE SHOP OR OTHERWISE FROM US, OR INFORMATION AVAILABLE FROM THE ONLINE SHOP.

IN NO EVENT WILL OUR MAXIMUM LIABILITY TO YOU EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID TO US FOR THE SUBJECT SERVICES OR $100, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.
If products are delivered with obvious defects, in particular obvious transport damage, the customer is asked to report such defects to the deliverer immediately and to contact the Seller as soon as possible.
Insofar as the Buyer is a consumer, any failure to submit a complaint or contact has no effect on the statutory warranty rights. A timely complaint and contact by the Buyer can, however, support the Seller in asserting his claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.
If a customer account exists, the Buyer is liable for all activities that take place using this customer account. This does not apply if the Buyer is not responsible for any misuse of his customer account.
THE SELLER ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY CONSEQUENCE BASED ON INCORRECT INFORMATION PROVIDED TO IT BY THE BUYER THROUGH THE ONLINE SHOP. WHILE THE SELLER MAKES EVERY EFFORT TO KEEP INFORMATION IN THE ONLINE SHOP ACCURATE AND TO GATHER CORRECT INFORMATION FROM ITS USERS, THE SELLER CANNOT GUARANTEE, NOR WILL THE SELLER BE RESPONSIBLE, FOR ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS RELATED TO THE ACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION IN THE ONLINE SHOP OR THROUGH ITS SERVICES AS A RESULT OF BUYER’S MISINFORMATION.

These Terms can be changed by the Seller at any time. The current conditions apply to orders placed by the Buyer.
