Food product - Caviar
We sell various types of Products, including Food Products such as caviar, which is a sensitive product of a fresh food nature. In addition, factors such as taste, saltiness, creaminess, etc. largely depend on the individual fish. We mainly follow the principle "one fish - one can", i.e. the caviar is not mixed between different fish individuals and there is thus a natural variation in the properties of the Food Product. We do not sell or ship Food Products with quality deficiencies. However, the Customer must be aware that minor variations in the taste experience are a natural consequence of the production process.
Receipt of delivery of Food Products
Furthermore, it is of the utmost importance that the Customer is available for receipt of ordered Food Products at times and places that the carrier has announced in advance. If the Customer does not show up or is not available, ordered Food Products will usually be returned to the shipping company's depot and can be delayed for a day or more, which may adversely affect the quality of the Food Products and this is something we cannot be held responsible for.
Best-before date and cold storage
Product information is stated on the Food Product, in accordance with the National Food Administration's regulations. This includes the best-before date. This date presupposes that the Food Product is stored in accordance with the instructions on the Food Product and in particular not in too hot temperatures. If the Food Product is stored at the wrong temperature, the shelf life will be significantly shorter, and risks may arise.
In the event of objections to Product quality, the Customer must document / prove that the Food Product has been stored in the designated temperature range from the time of receipt.
Incorrect information may appear on our website and / or in the Online Store and we reserve the right to correct discovered errors.

Reservation for sold out Products

Delay in delivery of Products through shipping company: In the case of delivery of Products through shipping company, we shall not be liable for any delays in delivery, if they arise as a result of force majeure situations or other circumstances beyond our control, or delay in services from any subcontractor due to such circumstances, even if a specific date has been agreed.

Right of withdrawal
According to the main rule in the Distance and Doorstep Sales Act (2005:59) consumers have a 14-day right of withdrawal, which means that consumers have the right to cancel a purchase made through the Online Store without stating any reasons within 14 days from receipt of the Product.
However, there are some exceptions to this main rule, which means that the right of withdrawal does not apply to certain types of Products. Section 11 (4) of the Distance and Doorstep Sales Act states that the right of withdrawal does not apply to agreements which "refers to a product that can quickly deteriorate or become too old" and section 11 (5) states that the right of withdrawal does not apply to agreements which "refers to a product which with a broken seal can not be returned due to health or hygiene reasons and the seal has been broken by the consumer".
The Food Products we provide are those that can quickly deteriorate or become too old, as the food is a sensitive product of a fresh food nature. The right of withdrawal does not apply to Products that have been sealed (sealed) for health or hygiene reasons and where the seal (sealing) has been broken by the Customer, typically the caviar. Even without broken sealing, the right of withdrawal is not possible as the character of the caviar requires stable storage in refrigerated temperature.
The right of withdrawal thus applies to all Products in the Online Store except the Food Products, such as caviar.
Exercise of right of withdrawal: The Customer must notify us that the Customer wishes to exercise the right of withdrawal within 14 days of the Customer receiving the delivery. If the Customer wishes to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Customer must notify us in writing through e-mail: email@example.com or by post to the following address: Arctic Roe of Scandinavia AB, Lagastigsgatan 6, 28732 Strömsnäsbruk. The message must state the Customer's name, address, e-mail address, order number and which Products the return applies to clearly and distinctly. The Customer can also exercise the right of withdrawal by using our withdrawal form, which can be downloaded through the following link: https://arcticroe.shop/policies/legal-notice, and send it to us. If the Customer chooses to exercise the right of withdrawal, the Products must be returned to us no later than the legislated period of 14 days after the Customer has sent the notice of withdrawal to us.
Return shipping: The Customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping, delivery and condition of the Products upon return. The Products should therefore be sent well packaged and in the original packaging. The Products must be returned in good unchanged condition.
Refund on exercised right of withdrawal: If the right of withdrawal is applicable and the Customer does not request a new Product, we will refund the order amount for the returned Products. If a decrease in value has occurred due to a used or damaged Product, we have the right to deduct the decrease in value compared to the original value of the Product. Refund must be made within 14 days from the day the Customer notified us that the Customer exercises the right of withdrawal. However, we have the right to make the refund only after we have received the returned Products or after the Customer proves to us that the Products have been returned. The refund is made in the same way as for the payment.
Consumers have the right to complain about defects or deficiencies in goods within three (3) years from the receipt of the goods, provided that the consumer notifies the seller of the defect or deficiencies within a reasonable time after it is discovered. Complaints regarding Food Products should be made immediately upon discovery of defects or deficiencies.
We inspect all Products before they are sent to the Customer. Should the Product still be damaged or incorrectly dispatched when it arrives at the Customer, we undertake in accordance with current consumer protection legislation to rectify the defect free of charge. The complaint must be sent immediately after the defect has been discovered.
Remediation must take place within a reasonable time. We always have the right to repair or re-deliver a Product without having to justify this. We can replace the Customer with a new faultless Product or alternatively refund the Customer for the Product, and send the Customer a return shipping note for the faulty Product. In the event of a defect of material importance, the Customer may have the right to cancel the purchase. In the event of a complaint, the customer can also claim damages in accordance with the applicable consumer protection legislation.
The Customer must notify shipping damages to us in order for us to make a complaint against the shipping company.
How do you proceed with a complaint?
Any errors and defects must always be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org where the Customer states the Customers name, address, e-mail address, order number and a description of the error.
If the Customer wants to complain about a Product, the Customer can also use our complaint form which can be downloaded through the following link: https://arcticroe.shop/policies/legal-notice.
If we fail to rectify the defect or deliver a similar Product, we will refund the Customer for the defective Product in accordance with applicable consumer protection legislation. We are responsible for return shipping for approved complaints.
Any refund due to an approved complaint is made through the same method that the Customer used at the time of payment, unless otherwise specifically agreed between us.
We reserve the right to refuse a complaint if it turns out that the Product is not defective in accordance with current legislation. In the case of complaints, we follow guidelines from The National Swedish Complaints Board (www.arn.se).
