These General Terms and Conditions (GTC) apply to UK and Ireland. Click here for Austria & Germany.
These are the General Terms and Conditions (GTC) of Scientific DX GmbH for the portal www.igevia.com (in short "igevia"):
Address: 1030 Vienna, Kolonitzgasse 2A/DG
Management: Dominik Flener, Dr. Thomas Winkler
Phone number: +43 5 99 07 99
e-mail: [email protected]
We invite you to read the terms and conditions at your leisure, as they contain important information and provisions for your order at www.igevia.com. We have refrained from using gender-neutral wording in the wording of the GTCs, as this allows us to ensure that they are easier to read. However, it goes without saying that all personal designations refer to all genders.
1.1 A contractual relationship with igevia is exclusively based on these GTC in the currently valid version.
1.2 The offer of www.igevia.com is directed exclusively to customers with residence or habitual abode in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
1.3. igevia operates a portal under the web address www.igevia.com, which enables customers to order different igevia tests. All tests include a Test-Kit with the utensils for secure sample collection at home and return of the sample to an igevia partner laboratory. The results of the analysis are made available to our customers in the Results-Report on the portal www.igevia.com/en/login/. The results are also made available via the portal for customers who have purchased the igevia tests through other distribution channels (e.g. doctors or pharmacies).
1.4 Our aim is to make access to modern diagnostics as easy as possible. igevia provides customers with the results of the analysis from the laboratory. igevia explicitly does not offer any interpretation of the laboratory results, as we are convinced that this advice should be provided individually by medical experts. Consequently, the Results-Report provided is not a substitute for a visit to the doctor, which must take place before a fundamental change in lifestyle and eating habits takes place.
1.5 Please always follow the instructions for use that come with every igevia test. Only use the materials provided in the Test-Kit.
1.6 Each igevia test is accompanied by an individual Sample_ID (identification number). With this Sample-ID, you can activate your Test-Kit and link it to your e-mail address.
1.7 You send your sample with the return box directly to our partner laboratory, where your sample is analysed and evaluated. After evaluation of the test, the laboratory sends us the results with your Sample-ID and we make the results available on the portal www.igevia.com/en/login/.
2.1 You can place orders at www.igevia.com/en/shop/, stating your billing and delivery address and your preferred payment method.
2.2 When you hold your personal igevia test in your hands, we will ask you to activate it and thus link it to your e-mail address. You can then manage and update your personal data yourself. The results of the laboratory analysis can also be accessed in the user profile.
2.5 Please note that you are obliged to provide all information about your person completely and truthfully when ordering and activating.
2.6 You will be able to access your user profile or Results-Report via the email address you provide during activation. You must ensure that e-mails that you receive from igevia are kept confidential and that the data are not made available to third parties without authorisation. igevia is not responsible and liable for any unauthorised use of your data and for any damage resulting therefrom, if this is due to deficiencies in the safekeeping and confidentiality of access data at the customer's premises.
2.7 To place an order on www.igevia.com or to activate a Sample-ID, you must be at least 18 years old.
3.1 The presentation of the igevia tests on the website www.igevia.com does not constitute a binding offer by igevia to conclude a contract for delivery. Rather, customers are given the opportunity to make a binding offer to purchase the selected product.
3.2 You make this offer by selecting the desired number of igevia-Tests in the igevia shop and clicking on the "Confirm order" button at the end of the ordering process. Before submitting your order, you can view, change and delete your order details at any time. To do this, you can use the browser navigation and by selecting text fields to return to pages and fields that have already been filled in, and change the information entered.
3.3 After placing your order, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail to the e-mail address you provided during the ordering process. This order confirmation is not an acceptance of the offer, but merely information about the receipt of the order, stating the order data you have submitted.
3.4 The contract for the delivery of the igevia test and the associated obligation to carry out the analysis in our partner laboratory only comes into effect upon receipt of an order confirmation and/or invoice, which we will send to you in a second e-mail. The acceptance of the offer is at the sole discretion of igevia. You have no right to accept your offer and conclude the contract.
3.5 You are bound to your offer for at least 2 days after receipt of your order. After this period, you may cancel your order at any time until receipt of our order confirmation or invoice, notwithstanding your right of withdrawal. The e-mail by which the order confirmation and/or invoice with the essential contents for the conclusion of the contract is sent to you will be saved by us. Nevertheless, we recommend that you archive our order confirmation and/or invoice as well as the General Terms and Conditions of Business in their currently valid version.
4.1 You have the right to cancel this contract without giving any reason within 14 days of the day on which you or a third party (other than a carrier) designated by you took possession of the goods.
4.2 In order to exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your decision by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter or e-mail sent by post). You can use the attached sample revocation form for this purpose, but this is not mandatory. The revocation must be addressed to:
Scientific DX GmbH
In the event that the declaration of revocation is sent by e-mail, it must be sent to: [email protected]
In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient to send your notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the end of the revocation period.
4.3 If you revoke this contract, we must reimburse you for all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs, immediately and at the latest within fourteen days of the day on which we receive notification of your revocation of this contract. For this repayment, we will use a bank account which you are welcome to provide us with in the context of the notice of revocation. Under no circumstances will you be charged for this repayment.
4.4 We may refuse to refund until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods to us, whichever is earlier.
4.5 You must return the goods to igevia without delay, but no later than 14 days from the date on which you declared your withdrawal. This period is deemed to have been observed if you send the goods before the expiry of this period.
4.6 You bear the direct costs of returning the goods.
4.7 For goods that are delivered sealed and are not suitable for return for reasons of health protection or hygiene, the right of cancellation (right of withdrawal) does not apply if the seal on the goods has been broken after delivery.
