Welcome to the Itchy Boots webshop (the “Site”). This document makes up the house rules, or what is officially called the General Terms and Conditions (the “Terms” for short). The terms are a legally binding contract between you and Itchy Boots (“Itchy Boots” or “we”) and apply to all Agreements between you and Itchy Boots.
This document sets out your rights and responsibilities when you use www.itchyboots.store, so please read it carefully. By using any of the services here, you’re agreeing to the Terms. If you don’t agree with the Terms, you may not use our services. Still with me? Great, read on!
You: the natural person who is not acting in the course of his or her profession or for the running of his or her business and has concluded a (Remote) Agreement or wishes to conclude an Agreement respectively with Itchy Boots.
Product(s): all types of products/items sold or supplied by Itchy Boots.
Agreement: every arrangement between you and Itchy Boots to supply one of more Products, including all arrangements concluded within the framework of an organised system for remote sales of Products.
All offers for Products made by Itchy Boots via the webstore are subject to the availability of such Product. An offer shall lapse if the Product to which the offer applies has become unavailable in the meantime. If the Product that you have ordered unfortunately runs out of stock after the purchase order has been placed, we will contact you via the email address that has been provided. If you do not respond within 10 business days, Itchy Boots reserves the right to refund your order in full. All refunds will be made in Euros. You acknowledge and accept the possibility of any deviations in the received amount due to exchange rates in relation to the local currency.
Whilst we attempt to manage stock and cater to the demand as well as possible, Products are limited to the sizes, colors and variants as offered in the webstore. If a particular size, color or variant is not listed in the webstore, it is not, or not currently available for purchase.
On rare occasions, you might find that the Product you receive does not match what you saw online. If that occurs, let us know. We strive to be as accurate as possible. However, we do not warrant that all Product descriptions, images, photographs, pricing and other information are accurate, complete, current, or error-free. In addition, all weights, color and size-dimensions are approximate. Apparent mistakes or apparent errors in the offer do not bind Itchy Boots.
In the event of an error in an order confirmation, in processing an order, in delivering a Product or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct any error and revise your order accordingly, or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. If you receive an order that you believe contains a mistake, we encourage you to contact us right away so that we may correct the error.
By purchasing a Product through the webstore, you warrant Itchy Boots to be 1) at least 18 years old and 2) legally capable of entering into binding agreements. If either is not the case, a parent or guardian has to accept these Terms on its behalf.
A purchase order is accepted by Itchy Boots once it has been confirmed to you by virtue of a confirmation email of the purchase. At that moment the Agreement is formed.
You are aware that Itchy Boots is always entitled to refuse a purchase order without providing further explanation. Itchy Boots will inform you as soon as possible, in the event of such refusal.
All purchase orders should be made via the webstore. Orders cannot be made via other methods, such as email, social media or telephone.
The prices of Itchy Boots Products are quoted in Euros. Prices in your local currency may change due to differences in exchange rates.
Prices exclude VAT as well as delivery costs, which will be automatically added (at the cost shown) to the total amount due when you view the items in your shopping basket and have selected the country of delivery.
Prices, VAT, and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a dispatch confirmation.
Local import duties and local taxes may be applicable to Products that are shipped. Itchy Boots has no influence on this.

We will issue a refund for the damaged Product(s) and you can make the order again or we will have the damaged Product(s) replaced.
After identifying any fault, you are obliged to stop using the Product in question immediately and furthermore to make every possible effort within reason to prevent (further) damage and/or desist any actions that could cause (further) damage.
The notice of default should contain a description of the failure as detailed as possible so that Itchy Boots can respond adequately. Itchy Boots may require photographic evidence before damaged or incorrect Products can be returned. You should allow Itchy Boots the opportunity to investigate the complaint.
If you submit a complaint in due time, it will not suspend your payment obligations. In that event, you will remain obliged to pay the ordered Product, unless no independent value can be attached to it.
If a fault is reported later, you shall not be entitled to replace or compensate for damages unless a longer-term arises from the nature of the Item or the other circumstances of the case.
If it has been established that a Product is faulty and the fault was reported in due time, Itchy Boots shall replace or arrange the repair the faulty Product or pay you a compensation for replacement – to be decided at Itchy Boots’ discretion – within a reasonable term after its receipt when returned to Itchy Boots, or if returning the Product is not reasonably possible, after receipt of a written notice of the fault from you.

If it emerges that you have mistakenly made a claim on the guarantee, all inspection costs and additional costs will be charged to you.
