The obligations of the customer include in particular:
a) Registration and insurance of all pets as required by the law of the country of service provision.

P&P shall take all reasonable precautions, in accordance with the relevant regulations of the country where the services are provided, to ensure the health and safety of the pet being cared for. P&P shall not be liable for any damage, contamination or loss of any pet or property, or injury, escape, illness or death of any pet occurring during the use of P&P’s services, except to the extent P&P is required to do so by law. Generally, no liability is assumed for occurrences that occur outside of service hours, especially when the pet is unattended.
The customer agrees that P&P will consult a veterinarian in case of an emergency, if time does not permit a telephone consultation with the customer. The resulting costs (incl. transport) are to be paid in full by the customer and will be charged according to time spent (CHF 60.00 per hour).

3.2.2 Conclusion of the contract
When purchasing or ordering P&P’s products in the online store, the customer makes a legally binding offer to conclude a contract by accepting the GTC and data protection provisions and then sending the order. P&P confirms the receipt of the order by e-mail after receipt of the order. Only with this confirmation the contract is considered as concluded.

3.2.5 Inspection of the goods / notice of defects
Customers shall check the goods for completeness and intactness immediately upon receipt. Defects discovered at a later time must be reported to P&P immediately after discovery. P&P reserves the right to remedy defects. Only if this is not possible, a new product will be sent to the customer or a refund will be granted. Non-defective goods are excluded from exchange or refund.
According to article 10 paragraph 2 letter a MWSTG P&P is not liable for VAT. All prices quoted in CHF are therefore exclusive of VAT, inclusive of other statutory charges, but – unless expressly stated otherwise – exclusive of delivery and assembly costs.
