PURCHASE
The present Terms and Conditions apply to the goods and services sold by the “Urban Trips LTD”, registered in London, United Kingdom via its e-shop (called “e-shop”).

Connection
To make an order, the user only needs to buy a Premium Agenda. Any information submitted will remain absolutely confidential. Think Athens reserves the right to use this information for the communication of news and updates on the products and services.

Submission of electronic order
The order of the products and/or services is completed with the submission of the specific order form via pushing the button “Pay with PayPal”. With the submission, the user expressly and unconditionally declares clear understanding of below information:

– The main features of the goods and/or services ordered, as these are described in the e-shop. Think Athens has no responsibility in case the user missed to get sufficiently informed on the above.
– The contact details of the company.
– The total cost of the products and/or services ordered, including VAT and any other tax.
– The conditions, the exemptions, the deadline and the procedures for the exercise of the right of withdrawal.
– Where the consumer exercises his right of withdrawal after having made use of it, the consumer undertakes to pay the reasonable cost to the company
– Where a right of withdrawal is not provided in accordance with the law, the information that the consumer will not have a right of withdrawal or, where applicable, the circumstances under which the consumer loses his right of withdrawal.
– Where applicable, recourse to extrajudicial complaint and redress mechanism, to which the supplier belongs, and how to access it.
– The obligation of payment with the submission of order.

The submission of the order to the company constitutes proposal for purchase of the ordered goods and statement of acceptance of all costs mentioned in the order. If there is no information or acceptance, then the user is entitled to reimbursement of this payment. 

Confirmation of online order placement – Liability
The company bears no responsibility for the order unless the user receives the confirmation of order placement.

Limitations of Liability:
In accordance with good faith and fair dealing, the company is not obliged to accept orders and to conclude the sale of products and / or services, which, due to a typographical or computer error, appear in the e-shop with an incorrect price, i.e. lower or higher than the price in force for the period in question. If such error is found only in a part of the ordered products, the order shall be valid, shall be performed normally for other products and shall be considered uncompleted for products with an incorrect price. The exception is the case where the ordered goods are relevant, are to be used as a whole and operate as a unit with each other and the consumer declares that a partial fulfillment of the order does not serve his/her needs or interests, so the company shall cancel the entire order.

In case of unsolicited goods or services, the unconditional receipt or the failure to inform the company and return the products shall not constitute consent, acceptance or declaration of willingness to purchase. If the company requests the return of the products and the consumer delays to return these products for more than seven (7) calendar days, the refusal shall constitute declaration of willingness to purchase these goods, the order shall be considered as confirmed and the consumer shall pay for them.

If a typographical or computer error in the price is found only in a part of the ordered products, the order shall be valid, shall be performed normally for other products and shall be considered uncompleted for the products with an incorrect price. The exception is the case where the ordered goods are relevant, are to be used as a whole and operate as a unit with each other and the consumer declares that a partial fulfillment of the order does not serve his/her needs or interests, so the company shall cancel the entire order.

Time and Place of Delivery
The time of delivery of sold products and services shall be specified in the order subject to availability, shall be confirmed during the acceptance of the order by the company and shall be no more than 24 hours from the time of the purchase, unless there is a special different agreement made between the parties and confirmed in writing by e-mail.

Force majeure: The company is not responsible for delays in the execution of the order (including delivery) due to circumstances, which are not attributable to the fault of the company, or due to force majeure and therefore the company is entitled to extend the execution time. Examples include strikes, terrorist activities, war, exchange rate fluctuations, governmental or legislative acts and natural disasters. If such events last more than two (2) months, either party without compensation may terminate the sales contract. If the consumer is no longer interested in the execution of the order, she/he shall be entitled to terminate the sales contract, the company shall reimburse the price and any other amount paid under the sales contract.

The place of delivery of the order shall be the consumer`s email address.

Payment
Payments are made by credit or debit card via Paypal.

Right of withdrawal from distance contracts under Law 2251/1994 (as amended by Joint Ministerial Decision Ζ1-891/2013)
In accordance with Article 3l of Law 2251/1994 as in force and as Think Athens provides services of reservations and bookings, by purchasing them the user agrees that he loses the right of withdrawal after the execution of the purchase and once the contract is fully executed by the company.

Exceptions to the Right of Withdrawal under par. 6
The right of withdrawal under Article 4 § 10 of Law 2251/1994 shall not apply:

– In case that the product has been purchased and paid at a natural store and, in addition, if the products have been received from a natural store, as such sale is not considered a distance sale.
– For service contracts after full provision of the service, if the execution has begun with the consumer’s prior consent and with the acknowledgment by the consumer of losing the right of withdrawal once the contract is fully performed by the company.
– In case that the supply of digital content which is not supplied on a tangible medium has begun with the consumer’s prior consent and with the acknowledgment by the consumer of losing the right of withdrawal.

Final Provisions
The European and Greek Law shall govern contracts concluded through the e-shop. In particular, laws that regulate issues concerning applicable law, e-commerce, distance selling and consumer protection. If the user visits the website from the country of his habitual residence, the 1980 Rome Convention on the law applicable to contractual obligations applies.

Any dispute which may arise and which derives from the contractual relationship between the Company and the Customer shall be resolved under the jurisdiction of the competent Courts of Athens. For settling disputes out-of-court, user shall address to competent bodies of out-of-court settlement of consumer disputes, e.g. to the Secretariat-General of the Ministry of Development and Competitiveness (Kaniggos Sq., 10181, Athens, www.efpolis.gr, tel.: 1520, fax: 2103843549), to Consumers` Omhudsman (www.synigoroskatanaloti.gr, Boul. Alexandras 144, 114 71, Athes, tel.: 2106460734, fax: 2106460414), to Committees of Amicable Settlement of Consumer Disputes (Article 11 of Law 2251/1994) based on local Municipalities of the country.

According to Directive 2013/11 / EC, which was incorporated into the Greek legislation by Joint Ministerial Decision 70330/2015, there is a provision for online dispute resolution via the Alternative Dispute Resolution process throughout the European Union. If the user has a problem with a purchase conducted from the e-shop and resides in the EU, she can use this site https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/?event=main.home.show for the out-of-court settlement of the dispute. A certified for this purpose Body of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is:  European Consumer Centre in Greece (ECC GEREECE), 144 Boul. Alexandras, 11 471, Athens, +30 2106460284 +30 2106460784, info@eccgreece.gr. The Customer can communicate with that body in order to receive guidance for the entire process of submission and processing of his complaint.

It should be underlined that the protection reserved by the provisions of the Law on distance contracts, as well as by these terms, apply only to transactions with individuals that are carried out for purposes which do not relate to their trade, craft, business or profession.

If any part of the sales contract in accordance with these Terms is found void or inapplicable by a court decision, the rest of the contract shall continue to apply. The company may enter into an agreement for the assignment of its obligations to an appropriate third party. The Customer shall not be entitled to assign or transfer his rights or obligations.

All notifications shall be made in writing (by hand, by e-mail, fax or a letter via first class mail, which shall be deemed to be delivered at the expiry of 48 hours after posting).

These terms represent information of Clause 3b of Law 2251/1994.
