Some of the Products provided on www.svgjp.com, as part of the Service, are provided on the basis of payment.
The fees, duration, and conditions applicable to the purchase of such Products are described below and in the dedicated sections of www.svgjp.com.
Prices, descriptions, or availability of Products are outlined in the respective sections of www.svgjp.com and are subject to change without notice.
While Products on www.svgjp.com are presented with the greatest accuracy technically possible, representation on www.svgjp.com through any means (including, as the case may be, graphic material, images, colors, or sounds) is for reference only and implies no warranty as to the characteristics of the purchased Product.
The characteristics of the chosen Product will be outlined during the purchasing process.
Any steps are taken from choosing a Product to order submission form part of the purchasing process.
The purchasing process includes these steps:
Users must choose the desired Product and verify their purchase selection.
After having reviewed the information displayed in the purchase selection, Users may place the order by submitting it.
When the User submits an order, the following applies:
The submission of an order determines the contract conclusion and therefore creates for the User the obligation to pay the price, taxes, and possible further fees and expenses, as specified on the order page.
In case the purchased Product requires active input from the User, such as the provision of personal information or data, specifications, or special wishes, the order submission creates an obligation for the User to cooperate accordingly.
Upon submission of the order, Users will receive a receipt confirming that the order has been received.
All notifications related to the described purchasing process shall be sent to the email address provided by the User for such purposes.
Users are informed during the purchasing process and before order submission, about any fees, taxes, and costs (including, if any, delivery costs) that they will be charged.
Prices on www.svgjp.com are displayed:
either exclusive or inclusive of any applicable fees, taxes, and costs, depending on the section the User is browsing.
Methods of payment
Information related to accepted payment methods is made available during the purchasing process.
Some payment methods may only be available subject to additional conditions or fees. In such cases, related information can be found in the dedicated section of www.svgjp.com.
All payments are independently processed through third-party services. Therefore, www.svgjp.com does not collect any payment information – such as credit card details – but only receives a notification once the payment has been successfully completed.
If payment through the available methods fails or is refused by the payment service provider, the Owner shall be under no obligation to fulfill the purchase order. Any possible costs or fees resulting from the failed or refused payment shall be borne by the User.
Retention of Product Ownership
Until payment of the total purchase price is received by the Owner, any Products ordered shall not become the User’s property.
Products are shipped per the Incoterms statement on the Owner purchase order acknowledgment or invoice, or, in the absence of such statement, F.O.B. point of shipment. Title and risk of loss transfers to the User upon delivery to the carrier. If Owner pays freight on the purchase order Owner may designate the means of transportation and routing. If the User requires alternative means of shipment, the User will pay any resulting costs. The average time to fill Product orders is three (3) business days or less. Lead times are as stated by Owner and Products may be placed on backorder at Owner’s discretion. Where Product availability is limited for any reason, the Owner may fill purchase orders or otherwise allocate Products in any manner it deems appropriate. Under no circumstances will the Owner be liable for failure to ship, or for User’s failure to receive, Products by a certain date. The owner may require prepayment of any Purchase order. Any credit extended to the User is done at Owner’s discretion and subject to Owner credit requirements. The user must keep their account current at all times. The owner may withhold shipments, payments, or other benefits, and/or assess late fees and interest on past-due amounts until the account balance is current.
The Owner cannot be held responsible for delivery errors due to inaccuracies or incompleteness in the execution of the purchase order by the User, nor for any damages or delays after handover to the carrier if the latter is arranged by the User.
If the goods are not received or collected at the time or within the deadline specified, the goods will be returned to the Owner, who will contact the User to schedule a second delivery attempt or to agree on the future course of action.
Unless otherwise agreed, any delivery attempt starting from the second shall be at the User’s expense.
The Owner’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any such right or provision. No waiver shall be considered a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.
To ensure the best possible service level, the Owner reserves the right to interrupt the Service for maintenance, system updates, or any other changes, informing the Users appropriately.
Within the limits of the law, the Owner may also decide to suspend or terminate the Service altogether. If the Service is terminated, the Owner will cooperate with Users to enable them to withdraw Personal Data or information in accordance with applicable law.
Additionally, the Service might not be available due to reasons outside the Owner’s reasonable control, such as “force majeure” (e.g. labor actions, infrastructural breakdowns or blackouts, etc).

Changes to these Terms
The Owner reserves the right to amend or otherwise modify these Terms at any time. In such cases, the Owner will appropriately inform the User of these changes.
Such changes will only affect the relationship with the User in the future.
The continued use of the Service will signify the User’s acceptance of the revised Terms. If Users do not wish to be bound by the changes, they must stop using the Service. Failure to accept the revised Terms may entitle either party to terminate the Agreement.
The applicable previous version will govern the relationship prior to the User's acceptance. The User can obtain any previous version from the Owner.
If required by applicable law, the Owner will specify the date by which the modified Terms will enter into force.
Assignment of contract
The Owner reserves the right to transfer, assign, dispose of by novation, or subcontract any or all rights or obligations under these Terms, taking the User’s legitimate interests into account. Provisions regarding changes to these Terms will apply accordingly.
Users may not assign or transfer their rights or obligations under these Terms in any way, without the written permission of the Owner.
All communications relating to the use of www.svgjp.com must be sent using the contact information stated in this document.
Should any provision of these Terms be deemed or become invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions, which shall remain in full force and effect.
Any such invalid or unenforceable provision will be interpreted, construed, and reformed to the extent reasonably required to render it valid, enforceable, and consistent with its original intent. These Terms constitute the entire Agreement between Users and the Owner with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersede all other communications, including but not limited to all prior agreements, between the parties with respect to such subject matter. These Terms will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Should any provision of these Terms be or be deemed void, invalid, or unenforceable, the parties shall do their best to find, in an amicable way, an agreement on valid and enforceable provisions thereby substituting the void, invalid or unenforceable parts.
In case of failure to do so, the void, invalid, or unenforceable provisions shall be replaced by the applicable statutory provisions, if so permitted or stated under the applicable law.
Without prejudice to the above, the nullity, invalidity, or impossibility to enforce a particular provision of these Terms shall not nullify the entire Agreement, unless the severed provisions are essential to the Agreement, or of such importance that the parties would not have entered into the contract if they had known that the provision would not be valid, or in cases where the remaining provisions would translate into an unacceptable hardship on any of the parties.
Texas law, without regard to conflicts of laws principles, shall exclusively govern the Owner’s sale of Products to the User. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sales of Goods does not apply. The state or federal court located within Bexar County, Texas shall be the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any litigation between User and Owner. The user agrees to submit to the jurisdiction of such court in the event of any litigation.
Exception for European Consumers
However, regardless of the above, if the User qualifies as a European Consumer and has their habitual residence in a country where the law provides for a higher consumer protection standard, much higher standards shall prevail.
Exception for European Consumers
The above does not apply to any Users that qualify as European Consumers, nor to Consumers based in Switzerland, Norway, or Iceland.
Amicable dispute resolution
Users may bring any disputes to the Owner who will try to resolve them amicably.
While Users' right to take legal action shall always remain unaffected, in the event of any controversy regarding the use of www.svgjp.com or the Service, Users are kindly asked to contact the Owner at the contact details provided in this document.
