GENERAL

We make every effort to provide our customers with the utmost satisfaction.
We deliver new products only.

The contractual relationship is established as soon as we accept the offer of a contract related to the customer's order and confirm the order. All essential information related to the order is included in the confirmation.

If you have any questions about our terms and conditions, please contact us via the contact form available on the "CONTACT" tab.

PRICES

The prices of our Collector’s Editions are displayed excluding VAT. Where appropriate, if applicable, the VAT (currently 2.5% to 8% for Switzerland) and shipping will appear at the last stage of the order confirmation prior to final approval, which will include a full summary explicitly stating the Collector’s Editions selected, prices and surcharges, as well as the total amount of the order and the currency in which it is placed.

Our Shop’s visitors have the possibility to display our Collector’s Editions’ prices in Swiss Francs (CHF) or their indicative exchange value in other currencies. Prices displayed in currencies other than Swiss Francs (CHF) are strictly indicative and do not guarantee the exchange rate applied by the client’s financial institution while purchasing with our Shop. Indicative exchange rates are updated at least every 24 hours.

PAYMENT TERMS

To offer the best options for the choice of payment method, we protect the customer and ourselves from any misuse through the 3-D Secure payment system for credit cards and debit cards.

We offer cardholders the DCC (Dynamic Currency Conversion) option, with the freedom to choose between the currency of the online store (CHF) or that of the card. The exchange rate is clearly displayed (exchange rate and conversion fees). The purchase amount is debited on the day of the order, in the selected currency.

TERMS OF DELIVERY

As soon as your order is processed by our logistics service provider, articles in stock will be transferred to the carrier of your choice. Approximate delivery times for each carrier are indicated during the ordering process. However, these delivery times may vary as a result of delays due, for example, to the goods being processed by customs. Delivery delays do not entitle you to a discount on the sale price.

We reserve the right to offer available items in limited quantities as well as to offer any special deals only in quantities customary for domestic use.

In accordance with our ethical and ecological guidelines, we work with the Fondation PRO for our logistics management. The mission of this foundation is to integrate and/or reintegrate individuals excluded from the traditional economic model, namely due to disability, while respecting standard requirements with regard to meeting deadlines and quality control.

CUSTOMS

When you order goods with a delivery address outside Switzerland and Liechtenstein, possible import taxes, duties and additional charges for customs clearance, over which we have no control whatsoever, may be levied once the package reaches its destination. These possible taxes, duties and additional charges are your responsibility. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your national customs authority for more information.

Also, please note that when ordering from our store, you are considered to be an official importer and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you receive the Collector’s Editions.

Protecting your privacy is important to us. Our international customers should be aware that cross-border deliveries may be opened and inspected by customs authorities.

RETURNS/FORFEITURE CLAUSE

If you return the purchased goods within 10 days after receipt of your order, in perfect condition and still sealed in its original packaging, we will refund the full purchase price of the goods. However, you are responsible for correctly completing all shipping documents for returning the goods. Shipping charges (to the address provided by you) and forwarding charges (to the address below), as well as all customs duties and other related charges, however, are your responsibility.

Return Address:

United Music Foundation
20, chemin Rieu
1208 Geneva

RETURN / EXCHANGE

For reasons of copyright, the sound media cannot be returned or exchanged unless they are still sealed in their original packaging. This does not apply, however, in case of shipping damage or manufacturing defects. If you return an item, you must attach a copy of the invoice or delivery slip without which processing is not possible. Damages caused during shipping must be reported within 48 hours of receipt of the goods, barring which the right to a free replacement expires.

WARRANTY / LIABILITY

The responsibility for the goods delivered is limited to delivering a replacement. Any claim to cancelling the contract or reducing the amount charged is excluded if a replacement delivery is possible within a reasonable time.

Any complaint related to defects in the goods must be received within eight days of delivery of the merchandise. If, after verification by us, the defect to the goods is due to misconduct by the buyer (e.g. damage caused during improper handling of the goods), the purchase, shipping, and reshipping costs will be borne fully by the buyer.

We accept no liability for any damage due to copy-protection systems. Our liability regarding our own faults as well as those of our legal representatives and service providers is limited to intent and negligence. We are liable only in cases of non-compliance with the basic obligations under the contract or lack of guaranteed properties.

For goods shipped outside Switzerland and Liechtenstein, you are responsible for ensuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from our Shop, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.

We are committed to providing all the diligence and care used in the industry for the provision of the service offered to the customer. However, we may not be held liable in the event of delay or breach of our contractual obligations if the delay or breach is due to or caused by reasons beyond our control: i.e., accident or force majeure as defined by applicable law.

We may not be held liable in the event of delay due to a shortage of stock. In addition, we are not liable for minor differences between the pictures of the articles and texts displayed on our websites and the products delivered.

We use all the means at our disposal to provide the services subject to these Terms and Conditions. We are responsible for all direct and foreseeable damages at the time of use of the website or the contract of sale between the buyer and the United Music Foundation.

We will not incur any liability for loss of profits, loss of business, loss of data, or loss of profit, or any other indirect damage or damage which was not foreseeable at the time of use of the website or the conclusion of the contract between the purchaser and the United Music Foundation.

MODIFICATION OF TERMS AND DATA PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to make changes to the Terms and Conditions and the Data Privacy Policy at any time. You are subject to the Terms in effect at the time of purchase and to the Data Privacy Policy in effect at the time of the use of our Shop.

JURISDICTION

The Foundation and our operations are governed exclusively by Swiss law. The jurisdiction is Geneva. The Terms and Conditions and Data Privacy Policy are legally enforceable only in French, English being provided solely for informational purposes. We are also entitled to file a complaint with the competent court of the customer.
