Kupující bere na vědomí, že zboží, které vkládá do košíku, může pocházet od více prodávajících a zboží, které objednává v jedné objednávce, nemusí být akceptováno celé a také nemusí být dodáno současně.

The Provider reserves the right to remove such forbidden Goods from the system.

The Provider also reserves the right to remove, in exceptional cases, such Goods from the system without even stating any reasons.


The Buyer selects the Goods from the Sellers, being aware that Valika is not the seller and that the separate Goods come from the Sellers, who are Registered Users of Valika. The Provider is not liable, in any way, for the Goods being sold. The Provider thus only mediates the sale and purchase of hand-made goods.

The Buyer acknowledges that the Goods they place in their shopping cart may come from several Sellers and the Goods the Buyer orders within one order are not necessarily to be accepted as a whole and are not necessarily to be supplied all at once.

The Buyer acknowledges that by sending the order they only inform the Seller of their intention to buy such Goods, while the Goods shall only be sent after the confirmation of the order by the Seller(s) and the payment of the amount due for the Goods by the Buyer.

The Buyer acknowledges that the Seller is entitled to reject an order as a whole or in part. In such cases, the Buyer shall pay only for the confirmed part of the order.

The Buyer does not pay any charges or commission to the Provider for the mediation of the sale. The Goods are paid for directly in advance to the Seller’s bank account (or otherwise, as per the payment terms of the Seller).


The Sellers are allowed to offer their own new hand-made goods of wool through Valika, as per the following definitions:

  • Hand-made goods of wool are goods created personally with creative invention.  Hand-made goods must be unused.
  • Other goods allowed for sale are manuals, on-line courses and documents closely related to hand-made and creative production.

Each item published in the selling part of the server must be specific Goods intended for sale. The Goods must be categorized according to the nature of the Goods.

Neither the type of Goods nor their image or description may contain contact information about the Seller (name, surname, telephone number, e-mail, web page, etc.). Such contact information (or encouraging them to search for it elsewhere via the Internet) must not be present in any other written or visual sale-related elements, such as comments, discussions, blogs, etc.

Neither the type of Goods nor their description may contain any key words used for the purpose of manipulating search results.

Neither the caption of the Goods nor their description may contain elements of HTML, JavaScript, Java and other programming languages, especially with the intention of affecting the content or marketability of the Goods or otherwise impairing or jeopardizing the functionality of the Valika server.

The Goods that are offered and their image and description must fully and truly represent the reality (in the case of photographs, we also recommend using optional photographs). The depiction of the Goods and their description must sufficiently inform the Buyer as to minimize any possibility of confusion or erroneous notion of the visitors about the depicted Goods.

It is forbidden to use photographs which may violate copyright law (e.g. photographs from magazines, photographs for which the Seller has no copyright, etc.).

It is forbidden to offer for sale Goods which violate copyright law (e.g. reproductions of licensed artworks, etc.).

It is forbidden to offer services (except for the offers in the Courses category); the subject of trading is always Goods – tangible things. Such tangible things include electronic works captured on tangible media (CD, hard drive, etc.).

It is forbidden to sell any Goods for the manufacture and/or sale of which the Seller has no corresponding authorizations (e.g. foodstuffs without adherence to sanitary standards, products made of precious metals which are not registered at the assay office, etc.).

It is forbidden to sell Goods which are not hand-made by the Seller or a selling team, or to resell Goods made by another Seller, except for any Goods modified by the Seller (e.g. processed materials or hand-made products creatively manipulated or processed and sold without the original author’s knowledge).

If it is necessary to use computer simulation or computer retouching which fundamentally changes the character and substance and/or use of the Goods or which, for some reason, cannot inform the Buyer fully about the nature of the Goods (e.g. 2-D or 3-D visualization, an offer of Goods from previous sales with some elements changed, graphic designs for prints, etc.), the Seller must call proper attention to this fact in the description of the Goods or directly in the picture (e.g.: “the picture is for reference only”, “the picture is a 3-D visualization”, etc.).

The Seller displays the Goods through an electronic form where all required items must be stated.

Payment and Delivery Conditions

All prices stated by the Seller are final prices with VAT.

The Seller is entitled to delete the Goods offered at any time or to hide them for an indefinite period of time. The Seller may also change and edit the description of the Goods.

The Seller is informed of the intention of the Buyer through the Valika’s mail service and also through a listing in the Order section. Such information is not binding and the Seller may withdraw from it by rejection of the order.

After receiving the notice of an order, the Seller is allowed to accept the order in part only by marking suitable items only. The Seller is then required to supply to the Buyer only those items which have been acknowledged.

The Seller undertakes to dispatch the Goods as soon as practicable after the receipt, confirmation and payment of the order, without unnecessary delay.
