Terms of purchase
Happy Angler Online Store
Welcome to the Happy Angler online store! These are the terms and conditions of the Happy Angler online store (later referred to as "Happy Angler") and they apply to all interactions between Happy Angler and the customer (later referred to as "Customer") on the website happyangler.com/*. Only consumer customers over 18 years of age may shop at the Happy Angler.
1. Shopping at Happy Angler
The Customer may order products from Happy Angler either as a registered Happy Angler Club member (for more information about the Club, see here) or as an unregistered customer. If the Customer decides to place orders without joining the Happy Angler Club, the Customer must enter the required customer information separately for each order or the orders cannot be delivered. Placing an order requires a functional email address. The reason for this is that order confirmations are only delivered to the Customer via email. Happy Angler Club members may also view their order information on the Club pages.
The Customer commits to giving accurate personal information and is responsible for that information. In order for Happy Angler to be able to serve the Customer in the best possible way, the registered Customer must inform Happy Angler of any changes to his/her personal information without delay.
When the Customer joins the Happy Angler Club, he/she chooses a password. The Customer agrees to keep this password a secret and refrains from giving it to others. The Customer is responsible for all actions taken at Happy Angler using his/her personal login details. If the Customer detects or suspects that his/her login details have been exposed, misused, or stolen by a third party, the Customer is responsible for notifying Happy Angler immediately. Happy Angler reserves the right to freeze a Customer's account if it suspects that the login details are being abused.
2. Handling of Personal Information
Happy Angler handles all personal information in accordance with current Finnish personal data legislation and functions as the controller of a personal data file. The Customer's personal information is handled in ways described in the Description of File.
Cookies may be sent to the Customer's browser.
A cookie is a small text file that allows Happy Angler to collect data on how and when the online store is used. A cookie may store such information as when and and what pages the Customer browsed, what browser he/she used, and from where the Customer arrived at Happy Angler. The information received via cookies is by its nature anonymous, but it is also possible to link the cookie information to the Customer's personal information.
The Customer has the option to disable cookies from his/her browser settings, but this can have adverse effects on the usability of Happy Angler or even prevent its use altogether.
4. Placing Orders
In order to purchase a product or products, the Customer must first place the items in the shopping cart and then submit the order as instructed by Happy Angler. The Customer may make changes to his/her shopping cart at any time before the order is finalized and paid for.
The Customer is urged to carefully review his/her order before finalizing it. After the order is placed, the Customer receives an order confirmation into the email address he/she has provided. An order becomes binding for the Customer once the order process is completed.
Items are invoiced at the prices in effect at the time the order is placed. Product prices are in effect either indefinitely or during a time period specified separately on the product information page. All prices include VAT. Product prices do not include shipping costs; shipping costs are stated separately during the order process and again in the order confirmation.
Happy Angler reserves the right to alter product prices. Happy Angler aims to always keep the prices shown on the website as accurate and up-to-date as possible, but Happy Angler cannot give any guarantees as to the accuracy of the prices. Happy Angler is not bound by an erroneous price shown on the website if the difference between the erroneous price and the actual price is significant, or if the erroneous price is exceptionally low compared to general market levels, or if the error is otherwise so obvious that the Customer should understand it to be a mistake.
6. Product Availability
Happy Angler sells a wide range of products with varying batch sizes and availability. Happy Angler cannot guarantee the availability of products sold at the online store. Some of the products at Happy Angler are so-called seasonal products or otherwise only available in limited quantities. Products that are usually always available may also be temporarily sold out due to production irregularities, for example. Happy Angler aims to keep the availability information on the website as correct and up-to-date as possible.
If an ordered product shown as available at Happy Angler is in fact temporarily unavailable, and the actual delivery time is longer than the original estimated delivery time, Happy Angler aims to notify the Customer of the delay immediately after the problem is discovered. This notification is sent to the email address specified by the Customer. If the additional delay created by erroneous availability information is longer than 30 days, the matter is handled as if the product is completely unavailable (see the relevant conditions below), unless the Customer wishes otherwise.
If the Customer orders a product that is listed as currently unavailable at Happy Angler and there is an estimated date when the product will become available again, the Customer is seen to agree to a shipping schedule that begins from the estimated availability date.
Happy Angler also sells products by order. These by-order products are not in stock and only ordered in after the Customer has placed an order. If the Customer orders such a product, the Customer is seen to agree to the product's estimated shipping time, even if it is longer than that of normal in-stock items.
If a product the Customer has ordered has become completely unavailable, the Hapy Angler reserves the right to deliver the Customer a substitute product that is equal in purpose and equal or better in quality to the ordered product. The price of the substitute product may not exceed the price of the original item, unless the Customer agrees to a higher price. If a substitute product is not available, the transaction is considered canceled as far as the product in question is concerned. In such cases, possible consumer credit granted for the purchase of the product is also canceled. If the Customer has already paid for a product that is completely unavailable and no substitute can be found, Happy Angler will reimburse the Customer to the price the Customer has paid for the product. The money will be returned using the banking details provided by the Customer.
7. Order Confirmation
After an order is placed and the transaction is completed successfully the Customer will receive a confirmation of the order into his/her email address. This order confirmation contains all the important information about the order. A copy of the order confirmation is also attached to the delivery. The Customer must make sure that the information in the order confirmation is correct. If the Customer is a registered Happy Angler Club member, he/she may also review his/her orders and order history by logging in to the member section of the website. Happy Angler reserves the right to reject orders for justifiable reasons.
