Terms & Conditions
In short: Upon confirmation via email, following your payment by Credit Card and Paypal, you enter into a contract with the CKS Online Essentials GmbH ("discandooo") for the purchase of your goods. The transport of goods to your home address or collection/pickup point of choice is handled through an independent freight forwarder (more information on our shipping information page).
1. Scope of application
The following terms and conditions apply to all orders through our online shop.
2. Contracting party, conclusion of contract
The purchase contract is concluded with CKS Online Essentials GmbH.
By placing the products in the online shop, we submit a binding offer to conclude the contract. You can initially place our products without obligation into the shopping basket and correct your entries at any time before submitting your binding order by using the corrective aids provided for this purpose in the order process. The contract comes about by accepting the offer via the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking on the order button. Immediately after sending the order, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail. Languages available for the contract are German and English.
We store the contract text and send you the order data and our general terms and conditions by e-mail. You can also read the terms and conditions on this page at any time. You can view your past orders in our customer login.
2a. Youth protection law & sale of alcohol
According to the youth protection legislation (German Jugendschutzgesetz), we sell alcoholic beverages only to persons over the age of 18 years. By accepting our general terms and conditions when starting the checkout process, you confirm that you are at least 18 years old. Further you assure that all age, name and address details are correct. As a customer, you are obliged to ensure that only you or a person authorised by you is able to accept the goods. Otherwise, if the order was placed under false facts and/or without the approval of authorised representatives, CKS Online Essentials GmbH (discandooo) hereby revokes the contract as a precautionary measure in accordance with § 111 BGB (German Civil Code).
Upon delivery, an additional age check may be carried out by the logistic carrier, provided that the person receiving the goods gives reasons to believe to be under age. If the age verification fails, you have to bear the additional costs for the return of the order.
2b. Personal use limits for alcohol purchases
We will only pack alcoholic beverages up to the EU personal use limit recommendations. These are
- spirit drinks 10 litres
- intermediate products 20 litres
- wines (including a maximum of 60 litres of sparkling wines) 90 litres
- beers 110 litres
2c. Use of first order discount vouchers / multiple email addresses for unique customer
You may not create multiple accounts or use multiple different email addresses in order to re-use first order discount codes. We reserve the right to black-list you for future purchases if we detect such behaviour.
2d. Product substitutions for (temporarily) unavailable items
In the unlikely case that items are out of stock when a order is packed, we reserve the right to replace a (temporarily) unavailable item with an appropriate substitute of the same or higher value - unless you explicitly opt out by unchecking "I accept substitutes for out-of-stock items" on the cart overview page prior to checking out.
CKS Online Essentials GmbH will not ship goods outside of Germany. As a customer, you have the option to organise transport through any independent freight forwarder, following the purchase of your goods on our website.
