2. Conclusion of the contract
Before submitting your order, step 5 of the ordering process ("Preview") offers you the chance to check all the details again (e.g. name, address, payment method, and items ordered) and make changes if necessary.
Once you have gone through the ordering process at zooplus.ie by entering the details as prompted, you make a binding offer to purchase the goods from zooplus AG by clicking on the button "Place order" in the section "Step 5 Preview".
This offer is accepted and the contract is thereby concluded by dispatching the goods you ordered. The contract is therefore brought about when the goods you ordered are dispatched. In certain cases, we may ask you for proof of identification and generally reserve the right not to enter into a contract.
The details of your order are electronically stored. If you would like a printed copy, you can print out the "Order confirmation" which appears on your screen once you have submitted your order. If you have provided us with your e-mail address then you will also receive all the relevant details of your order by e-mail, which you can then print out directly.
