The General Terms and Conditions of Business (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") apply to all legal matters of The Beauty of Sound GmbH (hereinafter referred to as TBOS) on the www.thebeautyofsound.com website.
We have the right to change these GTC at any time. The version of these GTC in force at the time of the order shall apply and cannot be changed for individual orders. We do not recognise any terms and conditions that conflict with or deviate from these GTC.
The offer of products and services on www.thebeautyofsound.com is aimed exclusively at customers with a delivery address in one of the countries specified as a selection in the checkout. These are in particular Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany and Austria.
The offer is valid while stocks last. The soundboard is currently only manufactured after the order has been placed.
Orders in non-household quantities may be refused without justification. For such an order, please feel free to contact us at info(at)thebeautyofsound.com.
All sales prices published on the TBOS website represent final prices including VAT. We may change the prices of the products and services offered at any time. The price on the TBOS website at the time of the order is decisive for the conclusion of the purchase contract.
Any additional services ordered from us for which a charge is made will be listed separately accordingly.
TBOS makes every effort to deliver on time. However, due to production or delivery bottlenecks in particular, delays in delivery may occur. All information on availability and delivery time is therefore without guarantee and may change at any time. For our Soundbar, the delivery time is usually approx. 12 weeks.
The products and prices on the TBOS website are deemed to be an offer. However, this offer is always subject to the condition that the contract is dissolved if delivery is not possible or the price is incorrect.
After you have placed an order on the TBOS website, by e-mail or by telephone, you will receive an automatically generated order receipt confirmation by e-mail. The receipt of the automatically generated order confirmation does not contain an actual delivery commitment and does not represent the conclusion of a contract. It merely indicates to you that the submitted order has been received by TBOS.
After checking the delivery possibility and correct price information, TBOS will then send you an invoice. TBOS will inform you of the expected delivery date with the invoice. After you have paid the invoice in full, the purchase contract is considered concluded.
Once the purchase contract has been concluded, you are obliged to accept the products and services. Subsequent changes or cancellations of orders by you may be accepted by TBOS at its sole discretion and TBOS may charge compensation of 20% of the cancelled order value, but not less than CHF 100, as well as the loss in value of the cancelled products since their order, if applicable.
If a (partial) delivery impossibility (resolving condition) occurs after an order or the conclusion of a contract, you will be informed immediately by e-mail. Payments already made for goods that cannot be delivered will be refunded. If no payment has yet been made, the customer will be released from the obligation to pay. Further claims due to delayed delivery or non-delivery are excluded.
All claims for payment of products and services purchased via the TBOS homepage will be made by TBOS directly to you.
Payments must be made in Swiss francs.
At present, the payment method prepayment - bank transfer is available to you.
You are obliged to pay the invoice amount within 20 calendar days after invoicing without any (discount) deduction. The contract is concluded and the soundbar is produced only after receipt of payment. Delivery takes place approx. 6-8 weeks after receipt of payment.
If payment has not been made after the 20th day from the order date, the order will be cancelled accordingly and the customer informed of this cancellation.
Ordered products remain the property of TBOS until delivery by TBOS. Before the transfer of ownership, a pledge or transfer of ownership by way of security is not permitted without the express consent of TBOS.
With the invoice, the clientele will be informed of an expected delivery date or you will be contacted and an individual delivery date will be agreed.
If TBOS is in default of delivery, you have the right to withdraw from the contract from the 30th calendar day after the originally announced delivery date plus the duration until your payment. In this case TBOS will refund any amounts already paid in advance. There are no further claims against TBOS.
For TBOS products and services, there are various delivery and, where applicable, collection options available to you, which are displayed on the TBOS website in the purchase process.
Your delivery address must be in the countries indicated on the TBOS website and must be easily accessible by truck. If this is not the case, you will bear any additional costs.
In the case of "Delivery by forwarding agent", you are responsible for ensuring that access to the delivery address is possible and guaranteed. Delivery is usually made to the kerbside. If the product cannot be transported to the delivery address, you shall bear any additional costs.
If you do not accept the ordered products on the agreed or indicated delivery date, TBOS can cancel the contract and charge you for the delivery costs incurred and any loss in value or storage costs until the final delivery.
In the event of any collection, you are obliged to actually collect the goods up to a maximum of 30 days after the indicated first day of collection. After that TBOS has the right to dissolve (cancel) the purchase contract. You shall bear the costs for deliveries to the collection location.

Wear parts such as batteries, rechargeable batteries, power cables, adapters, lamps and software problems are excluded from the warranty. In all other respects, the exclusions of liability pursuant to section 4 shall apply.

This is subject to the (suspensive) condition that a warranty claim actually exists. The transfer of ownership to you will only take place with a positive granting of warranty by TBOS. If a warranty claim is rejected, you can purchase the replacement device at the value of the goods at the time of handover, or you must return it at your own expense.

If you exercise your right of withdrawal, TBOS will refund the entire purchase price and the delivery costs incurred. The costs for the return shipment shall be borne by you in full.
The costs for a repair outside the warranty shall be borne by the customer. In the case of devices that do not have any detectable defects or where the defect is not covered by the warranty, TBOS reserves the right to charge you for the costs of examining the claimed defect as well as the shipping costs.
Returns that cannot be assigned to a customer or cannot be returned to a customer are kept for six months and then disposed of. Please ensure that we can accurately identify your returns.
If goods related to the provision of warranty are not collected within six months from the date of sending the collection request to you or if the goods cannot be returned to you, TBOS shall be entitled to dispose of the goods, in particular to dispose of them.
Should individual provisions of these GTC be invalid or ineffective, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions and these General Terms and Conditions as a whole.
The legal relationship between TBOS and you is governed by Swiss substantive law.
