Your recurring order subscription will not automatically include other promotional offers announced on or about the time of your recurring order transaction. In order for you to take advantage of any such promotion, it is recommended that you place a separate order and change your next shipping date for your recurring order subscription.
2.5 Order confirmation
Once you have submitted and confirmed your order, Desta's Coffee will acknowledge receipt of your order(s) by listing the details of the products ordered.
After confirming receipt of your order(s), Desta's Coffee will check whether the relevant Products are in stock. A contract for the sale of Products between you and Desta's Coffee will only be formed when Desta's Coffee confirms that all or part of the Products are still available and has sent confirmation that the contract has been concluded.
The contract for the sale of products relates only to those products that we have confirmed have been shipped.
To the extent permitted by law, Desta's Coffee may refuse, cancel or revoke an order at any time for reasonable cause. For example, we may refuse to ship an order if all or a portion of a product is unavailable after you submit your order. In this case, you will be notified of the delivery of the partial order or the cancellation of your order. If you have already paid for some or all of the products, we will refund the full amount in respect of the relevant products and any delivery charges as soon as possible. Desta's Coffee may also refuse an order in the event of an ongoing dispute over payment of prior orders, or in the event of dissenting orders as well as orders that Desta's Coffee suspects were not placed in good faith.
The prices payable for the items you order will be the prices on this Website on the date you place your order, including all applicable sales taxes.
Shipping charges, if any, will be billed at the rates shown on the Site once you have placed your order, calculated according to the size of the order and the delivery method you have selected. You will be informed of the shipping charges applicable to your order during the payment process and prior to placing your order.
Desta's Coffee reserves the right to change the prices of its products in the future. The price changes do not apply to orders for products confirmed by Desta's Coffee.
Your card details are encrypted during all transmissions for security reasons. Depending on the payment institution or payment service provider, payment by credit card may require authorization or may involve multiple steps. If Desta's Coffee does not receive authorization, Desta's Coffee reserves the right to cancel your order.
In the event that your credit card cannot be charged, Desta's Coffee will place your order on hold and send you a notification that payment could not be made. Orders will not be shipped until payment is received or payment is approved or processed. Desta's Coffee reserves the right to refuse any new order until any past due balance is paid in full. Invoices will be sent upon delivery of products and are payable in full within thirty (30) days. Recurring orders will be invoiced on the date of shipment.
If, in the case of payment by invoice, payment has not been made within a period of thirty (30) days after the due date, Desta's Coffee will initiate dunning proceedings. In this case, Desta's Coffee reserves the right to charge reminder fees and interest on late payments in addition to the invoice. The invoice amount as well as the default interest and reminder fees may be transferred to an external collection company for debt collection. You are also obligated to pay this company's reminder fees in addition to any outstanding amounts due to Desta's Coffee.
All orders confirmed by Desta's Coffee will be delivered to the delivery address you provided when placing your order.
Desta's Coffee and/or companies authorized by Desta's Coffee may contact you by text message, phone and/or email with information about your order and delivery.
Desta's Coffee makes every effort to provide standard deliveries (subject to stock availability and upon receipt of available funds) within one (1) to three (3) business days of receipt of an order.
In order to deliver orders in a timely manner, Desta's Coffee makes every effort to have sufficient product inventory on hand. However, inventories of certain products may not be sufficient to allow timely delivery of all orders. In such cases, you accept that Desta's Coffee is entitled to send partial shipments or delay delivery without being in default. Orders for products that are available in limited quantities (such as Limited Editions, etc.) will only be accepted by us as long as stock levels permit.
3.2 Default of payment and transfer of risk
Desta's Coffee reserves the right to cancel the Agreement and require the return of the Products if you are in default of all amounts owed under the Agreement, including payment of all charges included in the Order Confirmation.
All risk of loss or damage to the Products shall be transferred to you upon acceptance of delivery (or by persons acting on your behalf).
3.3 Product Inspection
At the time of delivery, you will be asked to verify that the number of items delivered matches the number stated on the Delivery Confirmation and that the Products are intact, undamaged, not wet and unaltered in any way.
If you discover any damage or missing items, you must notify the carrier and our support staff within seven (7) days of delivery. Desta's Coffee will provide you with identical replacement products if this occurs.
4. RETURNS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE
You have the right to return Products that you do not like within fourteen (14) days of receipt of the Products. Desta's Coffee will only accept returns of Products that are in an undamaged and unused condition, in their original condition and packaging, and shipped including invoice.

You are liable for any diminished value of the products resulting from your handling, except what is necessary to determine the condition, characteristics and functioning of the products.
For health and hygiene reasons, you cannot exercise your right of withdrawal for capsules and coffee whose packaging has been opened.
4.2 Effects of the withdrawal
If the returns have been properly processed, Desta's Coffee will refund the price of the returned Products and the delivery fees charged within a maximum of thirty (30) days from receipt of the returned Products. We will make this refund using the same means of payment that you used for the initial transaction, unless otherwise expressly agreed.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or limits our liability for: (i) death or personal injury caused by our negligence; (ii) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; (iii) defective products; or (iv) for any matter for which it would be unlawful for us to exclude or attempt to exclude our liability.
6. FORCE MAJEURE
Desta's Coffee will use all reasonable efforts to meet its obligations. However, Desta's Coffee shall not be held responsible or liable for any delay or failure caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control ("Force Majeure"). Such circumstances include, without limitation, strikes and labor disputes by third parties, civil strife, riots, wars, natural disasters, or any others that make production, transportation, or delivery of products impracticable or impossible.
In the event of a delay caused by force majeure, Desta's Coffee's obligations will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the event. Desta's Coffee will fulfill its obligations as soon as possible and reserves the right to allocate any remaining product inventory among customers in a fair and reasonable manner.
7. APPLICABLE LAW AND JURISDICTION
These Terms and Conditions and the purchase of products from Desta's Coffee are governed by Swiss law, waiving any conflict of law provisions.
Any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to the Terms and Conditions or the purchase of products from Desta's Coffee (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of Switzerland.

In case of non-payment of the due (subscription) fee, Desta's Coffee's automated system will retry the debit for three consecutive days until successful payment.
