Terms & Conditions for the zooplus Savings Plan

The zooplus Savings Plan (“Savings Plan”) is subject to the following Terms and Conditions which are applicable to the customer and zooplus SE (zooplus) in the version valid at the time of contract conclusion.

1. Participation

The Savings Plan offer is available to selected customers of legal capacity, who are registered with the online shop www.zooplus.ie ("Online Store") with a delivery address in Ireland. When registering the customer is responsible for the accuracy of all personal data. The customer is obliged to treat all personal access information as confidential and must not give access to unauthorised third parties. The selection process for customers suitable for the Savings Plan shall be solely determined by zooplus.

2. Contract conclusion

The Savings Plan options offered to selected customers in the “Order Preview” is not binding. It only becomes binding once the customer has selected a Savings Plan and clicked the “Place Order and Pay” button to complete the purchase. The customer is then sent an automated email confirmation that their order, including the Savings Plan, has been received. This automated confirmation (Order Confirmation) does not constitute acceptance of the offer.

The Savings Plan contract with zooplus is only concluded when zooplus confirms activation of the Savings Plan in a second email (Savings Plan Confirmation). When the pre-payment option is selected the contract is concluded as soon as zooplus sends the payment information. This payment information is sent to the customer within 24 hours of receiving the order.

3. Savings Plan

  • 3.1 General

    The Savings Plan is a fee-based discount programme which can only be concluded in conjunction with the purchase of other goods. The Savings Plan enables the customer to take advantage of a specified basic discount on their orders in the zooplus.ie Online Shop within the period specified in the Savings Plan. Depending on the Savings Plan selected, the customer will also receive a fixed discount on selected product groups or brands (so-called premium discount) within the period specified in the Savings Plan. The basic discount is not added to the fixed premium discount on selected product groups or brands.

    The Savings Plan is exclusively for individual (non-commercial) customers and only for their personal use. The customer can only purchase goods up to a value of EUR 3000.00 per year (excluding delivery costs and before deduction of any discounts). The selected Savings Plan cannot be used for commercial purposes. zooplus reserves the right not to accept contractual offers that appear to be made for the purpose of reselling goods commercially.

    The selected Savings Plan is only valid for the zooplus customer account with which it was purchased with. It cannot be transferred to a different customer account. Only one savings plan can be concluded per customer account. Furthermore, subject to change, the Savings Plan can only be used for delivery to Ireland. 

  • 3.2 Discount and discount exclusions

    Based on the Savings Plan selected, the relevant discount is automatically applied to the customer’s online order, before delivery costs are added. Unless otherwise stated, the Savings Plan cannot be combined with other discount groups (e.g. breeder, charity etc.). There is no cash payout of the monies saved by using the Savings Plan.

    Temporary promotions as well as items explicitly marked as non-discountable are excluded from Savings Plan discounts. zooplus reserves the right to exclude items from the discount without giving reasons.

  • 3.3 Duration of Savings Plan

    The term depends on the Savings Plan selected and terminates automatically on the expiry date. The customer will be notified about the expiry of the existing Savings Plan by email, using the email address provided when ordering the Savings Plan. Notification will be sent up to 42 days prior to the expiry of the existing Savings Plan as well as on the expiry day of the existing Savings Plan. An extension of the Savings Plan is only possible if the customer receives an offer from zooplus prior to the expiry date. There is no automatic entitlement.

  • 3.4 Prices and Delivery Costs

    The prices advertised at the time of purchase are valid. Prices are inclusive of VAT.
    There are no delivery costs for the Savings Plan.
  • 3.5 Payment, payment date & default

    Payment for the purchase of the Savings Plan should be made using the same payment method as for the entire order. zooplus reserves the right in individual cases to accept only certain types of payment. When paying by debit/credit card, your card will be charged within one week of dispatch of the Savings Plan.

  • 3.6 Information about your Savings Plan

    You can check the current status of your Savings Plan at any time in “my zooplus”.

4. Right of withdrawal

Customers who are consumers have 14 days to withdraw from this contract. Consumers are defined as any individual who enters into a legal transaction for a purpose attributed neither to a commercial nor to a self-employed occupational/professional activity. The following rules apply to the right of withdrawal and to the exclusion thereof. Customers should contact the zooplus customer service team with any further queries relating to this.

Withdrawal

You can revoke your contract in writing (e.g. letter, email) within 14 days without stating any reasons. The term of revocation commences upon receipt of this notification in written form, but not prior to contract conclusion and not prior to fulfilment of our duty to inform pursuant to Article 246b § 2 paragraph 1 in conjunction with § 1 paragraph 1 point 7 to 12, 15 and 19 and Article 248 § 13 paragraph 1 BGB. Timely dispatch of the cancellation is sufficient condition for meeting the revocation deadline

The notification of cancellation should be sent to:

zooplus SE
Customer Services
Sonnenstrasse 15
80331 Munich
Germany

Effects of withdrawal

If you withdraw from this contract, the received benefits for both parties are to be returned. You are obliged to repay any benefits received up to notification of cancellation if this was pointed out to you and you expressly agreed to this prior to returning your contract. If you are obliged to pay compensation this can mean that you must pay any contractual payments up to the point of withdrawal. Your right of withdrawal expires earlier if the contract is completely fulfilled by both parties at your explicit request before you have exercised your right of withdrawal.

Reimbursement must be fulfilled within 30 days. For the customer the time limit begins when notification of withdrawal is dispatched, for zooplus it begins once the notification of withdrawal is received.
