Please use our Shop www.supermagnete.de and consult the AGB found there.

§ 6 Incomplete Orders

If an order requires pre-payment and the invoice is not paid within ten days after billing, the order becomes void and the ordered quantities cannot be guaranteed in case of a new order or late payment.

§ 7 Liability

Webcraft AG takes no responsibility for damage and injuries caused by improper or careless use of its magnets. By completing your purchase of our magnets, you are confirming that you have read and understand the following warnings. Each shipment will contain a warning sheet that contains the same information.

§ 8 Delivery

When orders (or incoming payments via prepayment) are received on a business day before 12:00 o'clock, the shipping occurs on the same day, otherwise the following business day. We cannot accept any responsibility for delayed deliveries.

§ 9 Minimum order

The minimum order amount is CHF 20.00 (including VAT, not including shipping costs).

§ 10 Delivery Delays

Delivery delays that happen during the transport by mail are outside of our sphere of influence and we can therefore not be held liable for it.

Shop Articles

All articles that you ordered in our online shop are in stock and can be shipped without delay. If an article is temporarily not in stock, you cannot put it in your cart in the online shop.

Delays with ordered shop items are therefore only possible if you choose to prepay and we have to wait for receipt of payment. Depending on the chosen payment method, it can take several days before your payment is credited to our account. The ordered items remain reserved for you during this waiting period and will be shipped within one business day after receipt of payment. You can shorten the waiting time by sending us proof of payment (via e-mail) or by choosing a faster payment method, e.g. credit card.

Custom-Made Orders

Our offer will include the approximate production time we will need for the manufacture of your custom order. As a general rule, we will arrange for shipment within this time limit.

Large Quantities

Quotations for large quantities indicate an approximate delivery date that can be expected with an immediate order. However, the quoted quantities are not reserved for you at the time of quotation. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that this delivery date is still valid by the time you accept our offer. Only after you accept our offer, we can give you an order confirmation with a definite delivery date. If we cannot keep this delivery date and there is a delay of more than seven days, you can withdraw from our contract without penalty. Further claims for damages due to delayed delivery are not valid.

§ 11 Return policy

Customers from Switzerland and Liechtenstein may return products within 14 days of receipt. You may not return custom-made orders.

Please contact us via phone or e-mail before you return products. This enables us to handle the return quicker and avoid misunderstandings.

Please use our original packaging for your return shipment of magnets or a similarly large and sturdy alternative packaging. Place the magnets in the center and use plenty of filling material all around them. Please put enough postage on the package.

You will receive a refund after we have received the returned products. Postage costs for returned goods are at your expense.

§ 12 Warranty

Webcraft AG guarantees the functional efficiency of delivered magnets. Products which are damaged during use cannot be returned or exchanged. This includes:

a) for neodymium magnets:

  • Flaking and wear of the surface coating:
    The surface coating of the magnets can flake or chip during improper use, especially when magnets are allowed to collide. Furthermore, it's possible that a thin layer of coating may be worn away due to constant handling.
  • Breaking of the magnets:
    Neodymium magnets can break if dropped to the floor or if two magnets collide. Broken magnets are not covered by the Warranty and can therefore not be replaced.
  • Loss of magnetism due to high temperatures:
    All of our neodymium magnets are - unless otherwise mentioned - heat-resistant up to 80 degrees Celsius. If the magnets are exposed to higher temperatures, they lose a portion of their magnetism.

b) for ferrite magnets:

  • Fine cracks and jagged edges:
    Ferrite magnets can have fine cracks in the surface and jagged edges. This is a product feature due to its production method (sintering) and not a product flaw.
  • Loss of magnetism due to high temperatures:
    All our ferrite magnets are heat resistant up to a temperature of 250 Grad Celsius. When exposed to higher temperatures they lose part of their magnetisation.
  • Demagnetisation by neodymium magnets:
    Strong neodymium magnets can demagnetise or reverse the polarity of ferrite magnets. Those two magnet types have to be stored or transported at a distance of at least 3 cm from each other.

§ 13 Exceptions to the Guarantee

Any further material or legal guarantees, with the exception of those mentioned in § 12, are expressly excluded.

§ 14 Data Protection

Customer data will be used internally at Webcraft AG only and will not be supplied to third parties.

§ 15 Place of Jurisdiction

All obligations are subject to Swiss Law. The place of jurisdiction is Uster, Switzerland.
