§ 1 Subject matter of the GTC
Terms & Conditions
These General Terms and Conditions govern the contractual relationship between Fast Tech GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Fast Tech"), as operator of the Internet sales platform, and the customer (organisation, company, end user, etc.).
§ 2 Conclusion of contract
By placing an order, a sales contract is concluded between you and Fast Tech.
§ 3 Prices
Our prices are quoted in Swiss Francs (CHF) and include the legal value added tax (VAT). The shipping costs are not included in these prices.
§ 4 Shipping costs
Shipping costs are calculated according to weight. The exact amount is shown under the item price. In the case of several articles, the shipping costs for the heaviest article are taken in each case.
§ 5 Offer and order
You can order around the clock in our Internet shop. Once an order has been placed, it is legally binding. Orders from minors and wards are only possible with the consent of the legal representative.
We reserve the right to make changes to the products with regard to design, packaging, prices or ingredients.
§ 6 Payment
Payment can be made as follows: Invoice, Saferpay (credit cards, Postcard), PayPal, payment by instalments or prepayment.
Only customers with an appropriate credit rating can order on account. The check is carried out online and during the order process. The data is transmitted to the verification server in encrypted form. The invoice is payable within 30 days net. For each reminder sent to the customer, we charge a reminder fee of CHF 12.00 to cover additional expenses, printing and postage costs. Customers who have not fulfilled their payment obligation even after the 2nd reminder will be operated.
Saferpay can be used to pay by credit card, PayPal, TWINT or Postcard. The data is transmitted to the card verification server in encrypted form.
Customers who do not have sufficient creditworthiness or a credit card can pay in advance. After receipt of payment, the ordered items will be shipped.
We offer our customers the possibility to pay the order value in three instalments. The order must have a minimum order value of CHF 80.00. This payment method "payment by instalments" is only available if the buyer has the necessary creditworthiness. The fees are CHF 2.90 plus 3.90% of the order value.
§ 7 Retention of title
The delivered goods remain the property of Fast Tech until full payment of all claims.
§ 8 Delivery
The delivery of the ordered articles takes place exclusively in Switzerland. Shipping days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You will receive the goods comfortably by PostPac Economy directly to your home. Freight forwarding goods are delivered to the curb. We deliver to any address in Switzerland. Fast Tech assumes liability for transport and undertakes to exchange defective items delivered.
Liability is transferred to the buyer as soon as the item has been delivered. An item is considered delivered when:
- The post office has deposited the parcel in the deposit box. The postal tracking number is decisive.
- The customer has signed the supplier's delivery note for forwarding shipments.
§ 8.1 Floor deliveries
Floor deliveries include the delivery with two men and the disposal of the packaging material. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that stairways, doors and corridors are sufficiently wide and freely accessible so that the barbecues including the packaging can be transported without any problems. The corresponding packaging dimensions can be found in the technical data for the respective barbecue or outdoor kitchen element.
It should be noted that Fast Tech is entitled to charge the customer for the additional effort in the event of very difficult conditions, e.g. difficult access to the place of use, passages / doors that are too narrow, etc.).
Not included in the floor delivery are the assembly of the gas cylinder, explanation or introduction of the appliance. The service provision only includes delivery to the place of use.
§ 9 Delivery dates and delay
The articles will be delivered within three to four working days after receipt of the order. The delivery dates are indicative and without guarantee. This applies in particular as a result of delivery problems at the manufacturer. If a delivery was delayed by Fast Tech beyond a delivery date guaranteed in writing, the customer can put Fast Tech in default after expiry of an additional period of at least three weeks to be set by him in writing and can withdraw from the order after unused expiry of an appropriate additional period of at least one week. Further claims are excluded. If the customer has already made a payment (cash in advance), he has, after the expiry of the additional period, the right to the repayment of the amount paid. A claim in the form of an invoice is required.
§ 10 Returns
The products have left our premises in perfect quality. If you are nevertheless not satisfied with the product quality of the items delivered to you, you have the option of returning the item to us by post within 5 days of receipt in the original packaging. You must bear the costs for the return shipment yourself. The goods must be inspected immediately upon receipt. Any defects must be reported in writing within 5 working days.

In these cases, collection of the barbecue for repair by a forwarding agent is excluded.
