After you have submitted your order online, PIMZOS will confirm the receipt of your order immediately by email.

2.2: In cases in which the Terms & Conditions of individual services provided by PIMZOS should conflict with each other, the following order of precedence shall apply:
i. Terms & Conditions for Individual Services, superseding
ii. the present General Terms & Conditions, superseding
iii. Statutory Rule

5.2: Providing the items are returned complete (including all accessories, if applicable) and in mint condition, you will receive a refund within 30 days. Items returned incomplete, damaged or in used condition may lead to the refund revised accordingly, to compensate for the depreciated value. However, this does not affect your right to examine and test the delivered items upon receipt, i.e. as you would in a store. If the accumulated size or weight of the received items prevents returning these items via standard mail, courier or parcel carrier, please notify us in writing within a period of fourteen days after receipt of the goods.
