Goods are a movable item (e.g., footwear), which is the subject of a purchase-consumer agreement, including the original packaging, instructions and other accessories.

Supplier is the trading company BOTAS a. s., which in the conclusion and performance of the agreement acts within its commercial or other business activity. It is an entrepreneur/business that directly or via other businesses supplies goods to the buyer (hereinafter referred to as “Seller” or “Supplier”).

Buyer is a natural person or legal entity that purchases goods from the Supplier (hereinafter referred to as “Buyer”). Given applicable legal regulations, there is a difference between a buyer who is a consumer and a buyer who is not a consumer.

Consumer is a natural person who in the conclusion and performance of the agreement does not act within his/her commercial or other business activity or within the independent performance of his/her profession (hereinafter referred to as “Consumer”).

A buyer who is not a consumer is an entrepreneur/business that purchases products or uses services for the purpose of conducting business with these products or services.
