Article 4 – Product, purchase, delivery and execution of the Agreement.


4.1

The description of the goods/Product, quantity, quality, price, VAT, shipping costs, etc. are described on the Webshop. Illustrations, descriptions and other information regarding the products offered, with the exception of prices, VAT and shipping costs, are always indicative. They are for guidance only.


Despite the fact that the Webshop has been compiled with the greatest possible care, it is still possible that the information provided is incomplete, contains material errors and/or is not up-to-date. Such mistakes/errors in the offer and/or the Agreement do not bind STERA towards the Customer. STERA is only bound by an obligation of means, not an obligation of result.

The offer on the Webshop is valid as long as stocks last and can be adjusted or withdrawn by STERA at any time. STERA cannot be held liable for the unavailability of goods/the Product. If an offer has a limited period of validity or is subject to conditions, this will be explicitly stated in the offer.
