Claims arising from purchase and/or service contracts
You agree that you will pay to Byjuno all claims, plus any interest and fees, resulting from purchases from affiliated merchants for which you have chosen the payment option.
The merchant assigns its claim from the underlying transaction (purchase and/or service contract) to Byjuno. The assignment of the claim by the merchant and the issuing of an invoice by Byjuno does not result in novation.
The purchase and/or service contract concluded between you and the merchant is formed exclusively between you and the merchant and is executed in accordance with the terms agreed therein. All customer enquiries related to goods/service, discrepancies, complaints, delivery times, withdrawals, contradictions, deliveries, returns, warranty claims, credit notes, and objections and claims by you against the merchant etc. (hereinafter ‘claims and objections’) must be addressed exclusively to the merchant. Claims and objections against the merchant do not release you from your obligation to make full payment to Byjuno. Regardless of such claims and objections, you are obliged to pay the full invoice amount to Byjuno. Byjuno will not refund any invoices you have paid to Byjuno, except for credit notes confirmed by the merchant to Byjuno.

Alternatively, you can request delivery of the invoice(s) by post, which will incur a corresponding charge of CHF 3.95 per sending.
