2. Offer and conclusion of a contract

Your order and the sending thereof constitute an offer made to DS to conclude a purchase contract.

Following receipt of your order, DS shall provide you, via e-mail, with confirmation of receipt of your order. This order confirmation does not constitute an acceptance by DS of your offer to conclude a purchase contract. It solely confirms the receipt of your order.

If the supplier of DS fails to supply us with the ordered goods contrary to a contractual obligation, DS shall be entitled to rescind the contract.
