General Terms and Conditions of kathrinfederer.ch  ("hereinafter kathrinfederer.ch") (GTC)  

 

Art and community are the supporting pillars of our project. But because our offer is of course also about business (for all parties involved), we cannot avoid giving these businesses a uniform contractual basis. This is the purpose of the following rules, which we have agreed upon between you and us.

agree in a binding manner. For the sake of simplicity, the masculine form is used throughout the text; the feminine form is of course included.

 

Our GTC aim to regulate the business relationship between you and us binding and fair. Basis of an order and a contract are therefore always the following terms and conditions kathrinfederer.ch, whose knowledge and inclusion you confirm with an order or when logging into your customer account with us. You can view the terms and conditions at this point and print them out immediately if necessary.

 

For the business relation between kathrinfederer.ch, and the orderer exclusively the following general trading conditions apply in their version valid at the time of the order. Deviating conditions of the orderer do not recognize kathrinfederer.ch, unless, kathrinfederer.ch would have agreed expressly in writing to their validity.

 

We would also like to point out the following in advance: The papers, dyes, chemicals and other materials used in our source materials and manufacturing processes may, like other dyes, change slightly over time, sometimes even from one production batch to the next. Changes occur in particular over time due to high temperatures, high humidity - or its strong fluctuation - as well as sunlight. In order for you to enjoy our products for a long time, you should not expose photographs, laminations and frames in whole or in part to direct sunlight, hang them directly over heaters or expose them to humidity levels exceeding those of normal living rooms. Photographs, laminations and frames are therefore not suitable for outdoor use, basements, bathrooms and kitchens. Laminations with UV protective film or acrylic glass and  2 wooden frames are very sensitive to scratches and stains and should therefore only be handled with gloves or comparable protection.
