5. Delivery, delivery costs, costs of return on cancellation and customs duties

We deliver only by mail order. Collection of goods by the customer is not possible. We do not deliver to parcel delivery stations.

Delivery is made to the address for delivery given by you when placing your order. We do not deliver to any addresses outside the Participating Countries.

Deliveries in Switzerland are made using DHL. In the other Participating Countries deliveries are made using other delivery partners.

You will be informed of the delivery period on the respective product details page and prior to placing the order.

The period for delivery starts to run on payment in advance on the day following conclusion of the contract and ends on expiry of the last day of the period. If the last day falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a nationally recognised general public holiday at the delivery location, the next business day is to be regarded as the last day.

If you order several items in one order, in respect of which different delivery periods apply, we may dispatch the goods in one shipment. In this case the applicable delivery period for all the goods ordered shall be the period applicable to the item in your order with the longest delivery period.

By way of exception we have no obligation to deliver the ordered goods where we have for our part properly ordered the goods, but they have not been delivered correctly or on time (congruent covering transaction). An additional requirement is that we are not responsible for the lack of availability of the goods and that we have informed you of this circumstance without delay. In addition we must not have taken on the risk of procuring the ordered goods. In the event of corresponding non-availability of the goods we shall reimburse the payments you have already made without delay. We accept no risk of having to procure an ordered item (procurement risk). This shall also apply in the case of orders for goods described only according to their nature and characteristics (generic goods).

You as purchaser shall bear the delivery costs. In the case of delivery to a non-EU country your order may be subject to additional import taxes or duties that are levied as soon as the package arrives at the designated destination. All additional fees for customs clearance must be borne by you. We have no influence on these fees. For more information on customs regulations we recommend that you contact your local customs authority. Please note that you are considered the importer in the case of orders from the My Nintendo Store and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you receive the products.
