General Terms & Conditions

General information

The following General Terms and Conditions of Sale and Delivery apply to all goods offered and donations. However, certain provisions naturally only apply to goods, since donations are not physical products and therefore cannot be sent. With the final sending of an order it becomes binding (whether purchase of goods or donation).

Delivery area

We deliver goods both within Switzerland and in other European countries.

Delivery time

As a rule, delivery within Switzerland takes place within a maximum of six working days; in the case of deliveries abroad, no binding information can be given due to the different service providers. However, we make every effort to ship ordered items as quickly as possible. Delivery is at the risk of the recipient.

Minimum order value

There is no minimum order value.

Shipping costs

The shipping costs are indicated during the ordering process and are owed by the customer. For donations there are no shipping costs.

Shipping partner

Deliveries are made with Swiss Post or its partner companies in and outside of Switzerland. Please select the shipping address so that packages can be received.


All prices are in Swiss francs (CHF). As a non-profit association, we do not charge VAT.

We accept all major credit cards and Postfinance. Deliveries against invoice for physical items are only made against prepayment and only within Switzerland.


Complaints due to defects or due to incomplete or incorrect delivery must be reported to us in writing without delay, at the latest 14 days from the date of invoice.

Right of return
