These Business Conditions define the rights and obligations of MERCHYOU s.r.o. and its Customers, as well as the procedure of placing an order, concluding contracts and the ways of delivering the services and goods.
“Customer” is defined in these Business Conditions as the Consumer, a natural person not in the position of a Consumer or a legal person who ordered goods from the Supplier under the conditions specified in these Business Conditions.
The term Customer also includes the Slovak Republic or another country, self-governing territorial entity (municipality, region) or other contracting authority according to Act No. 343/2015 on public procurement, such as state-owned contributory organisation or contributory organisation where the function of the founder is performed by a self-governing territorial entity, if the Supplier and such person conclude a contract with the subject matter of supplying custom-made apparel, performing printing, embroidery, applying trimmings, sublimation or applying prints, embroidery and/or trimmings on the Customer’s apparel.
“Consumer” is a natural person not acting within its business objective, employment or profession (hereinafter referred to as “Consumer”). The relationships between the Supplier and the Consumer shall be governed by these Business Conditions and the Addendum for consumer relations, which is part of these Business Conditions.
The relationships between the Supplier and the Customer who is not in the position of a Consumer not explicitly provided for in these Business Conditions shall be governed by the applicable provisions of Act No. 513/1991 Commercial Code as amended.
Customers have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with these Business Conditions before confirming the order on the Supplier’s website or in the e-mail containing the quotation sent by the Supplier to the Customer. Confirmed order is defined as the Supplier’s quotation accepted by the Customer per e-mail or the Customer’s order placed on the e-shop and accepted by the Supplier per e-mail.
“Sales Contract” between the Supplier and the Customer shall be concluded by accepting the offer (price quotation) prepared by the Supplier per e-mail. Should the Customer place the order using the Supplier's e-shop, the contract shall be concluded by an explicit acceptance of the order by the Supplier per e-mail, while the automatically generated confirmation of the e-shop about placing the order (which can include also a quotation by the Supplier) is not to be understood as acceptance of the order.
In case the provisions of these Business Conditions are in conflict with the provisions of the Sales Contract, the provisions of the Sales Contract shall prevail. In case the Supplier concluded a framework contract with the Customer, and it is in conflict with the provisions of these Business Conditions, the provisions of the framework contract shall prevail.
In case the provisions of the framework contract are in conflict with the provisions of a specific Sales Contract, the provisions of the Sales Contract shall prevail.
By confirming the order, the Customer confirms that the Supplier allowed them, clearly and comprehensibly, to familiarise themselves with these Business Conditions and that they agree with these Business Conditions. By submitting the order, the Customer sends his proposal for concluding the Sales Contract.
2. Procedure for ordering goods and services
2.1. The Customer can turn to the Supplier with his request for a quotation (price quotation) through e-mail, in person, or using the order system of the Supplier. The Customer’s request must include:
a) Billing details of the Customer (name of the legal person or the first name and surname of the natural person, ID number of the natural or legal person, tax identification number, registered office or residential address).
b) Contact details of the Customer required for order delivery (name of the company and/or first name and surname of the contact person, delivery address, telephone number of the contact person, e-mail address of the contact person).
c) Graphical materials for printing. These materials are the property of the Customer and the Supplier shall not provide them to any third party and shall only process them for the purpose of fulfilling the order.
For the purposes of fulfilling the order, the data need to be graphically processed (separated, rasterised, etc.). Files created this way are the intellectual property of the Supplier and the Customer shall not be entitled to them in any way. They are used as necessary digital materials for the fulfilment of the order placed by the Customer. In case the Customer requests that these graphically processed data are provided to him, the Supplier is not obliged to provide these to him and is entitled to require appropriate fee for them (for the time spent during their preparation). This fee shall also be charged by the Supplier if the data is graphically processed and then the order is not executed.
d) Preview of the position of the design on the apparel of the requested type and colour.
e) The desired brand, type and colour of the apparel, if such apparel is preferred.
f) Number of pieces in individual sizes, colours and types. The colours of the preview pictures of the apparel provided by the Supplier may not correspond exactly to reality. To verify that the selected textile meets your expectations about its nature, cut and colour, we recommend ordering a sample. The sample is charged by the Supplier, who informs the Customer about the price for the ordered sample in advance. MERCHYOU is not responsible for the colour variations of the textile caused by the manufacturer due to the delivery of another batch of textile.
g) The exact hue of the Pantone colour from the Pantone Solid Coated sample book. If the hue is not defined, the Supplier shall visually choose a hue that he subjectively considers to be closest to the colour in the graphical materials submitted by the Customer. The Supplier shall not be liable for a possible difference in the colour of more than DELTA2.
In case the Discharge technology is used for printing, the final colour difference is caused by the printing technology and thus it is not possible to print the exact Pantone colour. The printed design loses a certain amount of saturation after the first wash, but it gains softness to the touch at the same time.
h) All requirements regarding branding or additional sewing works.
i) Desired packaging.
j) Desired deadline for production.
k) Preferred way of receiving the goods.
2.2. The graphical materials can be submitted electronically in the .ai, .pdf, .eps or .jpg format, or in a different form based on the previous approval of the Supplier with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi in the scale of 1:1 for the real dimensions of printing.
2.3. The preview of placing the graphics on the apparel can be submitted electronically in the .jpg or .pdf formats. If the Customer does not specify in writing or graphically how the design should be placed on the apparel in centimetres or millimetres, the Supplier shall place the design on the apparel based on his judgement and standards so that the outcome is visually as satisfactory as possible. It is necessary to take into account the possible offset of the print in the range of +/- 2 cm along the X and Y axes. Possible deviations in the specified range shall not be considered a defect of the final product.
2.4. If the data in the Customer’s request provide sufficient information to prepare the quotation, the Supplier shall prepare and send the “Price Quotation” to the Customer. The Price Quotation shall be sent by e-mail to the desired e-mail address. The Price Quotation shall include information that the contract is governed by these Business Conditions. The expiry date of the offer is specified in the Price Quotation as well.
2.5. If the Customer agrees with the price quotation, he shall confirm its receipt (acceptance) by sending an e-mail to the Supplier. The Sales Contract according to these Business Conditions shall be concluded upon the Supplier’s reception of the confirmation of acceptance.
2.6. The Supplier operates an e-shop. The Customer who had a user account created by the Supplier, can order goods through the e-shop. In case the order is placed through the e-shop, the Sales Contract is concluded by the Supplier’s acceptance of the Customer’s order by e-mail.
2.7. If the Customer supplies his own apparel for printing or other refinement, it is necessary that the apparel is sorted into boxes based on the planned application of designs, so that it can be easily identified which design shall be applied to which pieces. If the apparel is not sufficiently labelled, the Supplier shall charge a handling fee in the amount corresponding to the complexity of handling. The Customer shall be notified about the amount of the fee after assessing the received apparel.
3. Proofs and sample products
3.1. The proof is defined as a graphical proposal of the realisation of printing, embroidery, sublimation or the application of prints on apparel including information on size, quantity, colour and technology (print, embroidery, sublimation). The proof can be submitted to the Supplier by the Customer or prepared by the Supplier. Unless the Customer specifies that he will submit the proof when accepting the Price Quotation at the latest, the proof shall be prepared by the Supplier. This does not apply if the Supplier and the Customer agree otherwise per e-mail.
3.2. If the proof is prepared by the Supplier, it is sent to the Customer no later than two days after recording the quotation acceptance per e-mail or in the order system of the Supplier, and after all data for the preparation of the proof are provided by the Customer, including possible physical samples, should these be necessary for preparing the proof.
3.3. The Customer is obliged to give his opinion on the proof no later than one working day after the receipt of the proof. It is not possible to proceed to printing, embroidery, sublimation or application of prints on apparel, unless the proof is confirmed by the Customer. Should the Customer fail to give an opinion on the proof within the period specified above, his right to have the order fulfilled within the delivery period specified in Article 4 of these Business Conditions shall expire.
3.4. Should the Customer have objections to the first proof and the following (second) proof sent by the Supplier to the Customer is confirmed by the Customer, the Delivery Period shall be extended by the period that elapsed since the deadline for opinion on the first proof expired until the proof was confirmed by the Customer. Should the Customer have objections to the first and the second proof, the Customer’s right to have the order fulfilled within the Delivery Period shall expire. Depending on when the proof was confirmed by the Customer, the Supplier and the Customer shall agree on a new Delivery Period.
3.5. After the proof is prepared, a sample product may be prepared, too. A sample product is prepared if the Supplier and the Customer agree on it. The preparation of a sample product means performing the printing, embroidery or other modification on one piece of apparel and is subject to a fee specified by the Supplier depending on the nature of the sample product. The Supplier shall inform the Customer about the price before the sample product is manufactured.
3.6. The Supplier shall agree with the Customer whether the sample product (i.e. the apparel itself) will be sent to him by delivery service or a scan or a photograph of the sample product will be sent by e-mail.
3.7. In case the sample product is sent by the delivery service, the Customer shall be notified when the sample product has been handed over to the delivery service.
3.8. If the sample product is sent to the Customer using delivery service, the Customer is obliged to give his opinion on the sample product no later than one working day after its receipt and in case a photograph of the sample product is sent, the Customer is obliged to give his opinion within 30 minutes, if the technology requires a fast confirmation for a smooth production process. Should the Customer fail to give his opinion within this period, his right to have the order fulfilled within the Delivery Period shall expire, and the Supplier and the Customer shall agree on a new Delivery Period.
3.9. It is not possible to proceed to performing printing, embroidery or other modifications of the apparel in the agreed extent of the order (number of pieces of the apparel), unless the Customer confirms the sample product or a photograph of the product.
3.10. Should the Customer object to the sample product or the photograph of the sample product, this means a change in the requirements of the Customer compared to the confirmed proof, and the Customer’s right to have the order fulfilled in the Delivery Period shall expire upon the Supplier’s receipt of the Customer’s objection to the sample product or a photograph of the product, and the Supplier and Customer shall agree on a new Delivery Period. For the same reason (the Customer’s request for a change compared to the confirmed proof), the additional change (new proof, new sample product) shall be subject to a fee specified by the Supplier depending on the nature of the sample product. The Supplier shall notify the Customer about the amount of the fee before a new sample product is manufactured.
3.11. Should the order include also other services than printing, embroidery, sublimation or the application of prints, the Supplier and the Customer shall agree individually on the particular deadlines for sending the proof and the sample product or a scan or a photograph of the sample product and the periods for their confirmation by the Customer.
3.12. In the event of a subsequent design change for production after the previous approval of the preview or the sample, the Customer is obliged to notify the Provider of the change explicitly by e-mail and wait for the Provider to confirm acceptance of the modified design. Should the Customer change the design at this stage, their right to have the order fulfilled within the Delivery Period shall expire, and the Supplier and the Customer shall agree on a new Delivery Period.
4. Method and period of delivery
4.1. The period for the delivery of the ordered goods and the services performed on the goods, such as printing, embroidery or other sewing operations, or for the delivery of services performed on the apparel of the Customer (hereinafter referred to as “Delivery Period”) shall depend on the available stocks of the goods, the complexity and number of ordered services and the current workload of the Supplier’s production capabilities.

4.8. The offender shall be relieved from the obligation to pay compensation if he demonstrates that his fulfilment of the contractual obligations was hindered temporarily or permanently by an extraordinary unpredictable and insurmountable obstacle that arose independently of his will. The offender shall not be relieved from the obligation to pay compensation because of an obstacle which arose from the offender’s personal situation or which arose only when the offender was already late with fulfilling the agreed obligation, or an obstacle that the offender was obliged to overcome according to the contract.

8.3. The impression of the printing pallet or of the hold down arises as a natural effect of the production process and shall not be considered a defect of the final product.
8.4. Pre-processing of the apparel before digital printing leaves a fine film on the apparel. This film is a part of the production process and shall not be considered a defect of the final product. These traces of film that may appear around the edges of the design due to printing will disappear after the first washing.
8.5. The Supplier shall not be liable for defects that arise from the characteristics of the material provided by the Customer.
8.6. The Supplier shall not be liable for the damage to the supplied goods caused by further modifications performed by the Customer or a third party designated by him.

If the Supplier warns the Customer about the unsuitability of the apparel, while this unsuitability poses an obstacle for orderly performance of the works, the Supplier is entitled to suspend the performance of the works in the extent necessary until the Customer provides suitable apparel or until a written notification is received from the Customer that he insists on performing the works using the submitted apparel. The Delivery Period shall be extended by the period of the necessary suspension of performing the works.

In the event that the Customer does not notify the Supplier of defects within the relevant period, they lose any potential claims from defects.
8.9. If the supplied goods contain defects, the Customer shall be entitled for a remedy of the defects. The Supplier may choose to remedy the defects by supplying equivalent goods or by repairing the defective goods.

a) The apparel needed to perform the works is not available.
b) It is not possible to perform the works later on a low number of pieces, if the technology does not allow it.
8.10. The goods are not considered defective if the defective apparel accounts for 2% (two percent) or three pieces (in the case of the Customer’s order, the higher number prevails) of the total amount of ordered apparel.
8.11. The Customer shall not require the Supplier to remedy the defects in goods, i.e. to exercise the claim arising from the liability for defects, unless he provides the defective goods at his own expense, including all pieces containing the defects that are subject to the complaint to the Supplier. The goods shall not be visibly worn, used, stained or otherwise damaged. In case the Customer's claim is justified, the Supplier will compensate them for the reasonable costs of returning the goods.

8.13. If a certain number of products is provided to the Customer with a discount because of the presence of a defect, these items are not subject to the Supplier's liability for defects. In order to be able to exercise the claim arising from the liability for defects in the case of other items, the Customer shall provide all products sold with a discount together with the defective goods that are subject to the complaint with the purpose of avoiding doubt whether the goods subject to complaint are not the goods sold with a discount.
8.14. Solving the case related to the defects of the goods is in many cases difficult for both parties to the contract. If the Customer makes claims against the Supplier related to any deficiencies associated with the delivery of goods (including defects), in order to speed up and shorten the process of processing such a demand (hereinafter referred to as the "Complaint"), the Supplier may proactively offer the Customer compensation in the form of a discount coupon for a future order. The discount coupon is provided in the value of the reasonable incurred loss of the Customer based on the Supplier's estimate. The possibility to use the discount coupon is 6 months from the issue of the coupon, or according to the validity indicated on the specific discount coupon.
8.15.
