Right to cancel a purchase order
As a customer (a physical person who enters into a legal transaction for a purpose which is not part of their usual commercial or independent professional activity), you can cancel your contractual declaration in writing (e.g. letter, fax or email) within 14 days, without having to give any reasons for this, or by returning the goods to us. This period begins on the day on which you received the written cancellation instructions, but not before you have received the goods sent to you or to the recipient you specified for delivery (for repeated deliveries of similar goods, not before you have received the first partial delivery), and also not before the vendor has fulfilled its obligations to provide information in accordance with § 312c paragraph 2 of the German Civil Code (BGB) together with § 1 paragraphs 1, 2 and 4 of the Regulations on Obligations to Provide Information Based on the German Civil Code (BGB-InfoV) as well as its obligations based on § 312e paragraph 1 sentence 1 of the German Civil Code together with § 3 of the Regulations on Obligations to Provide Information Based on the German Civil Code.
Sending the cancellation or goods before this 14-day deadline expires is sufficient to ensure that the cancellation period is complied with. The cancellation must be sent to our postal address.
Consequences of a cancellation
In the event of a valid cancellation, the services and payments received by both parties must be returned. There is no obligation to pay compensation for the use of the goods or the value of the use. If you cannot return all or some of the goods to the vendor, or can only return them in a deteriorated condition, you must pay compensation to the vendor for their loss in value, if applicable. This does not apply to the return of goods if their deterioration was exclusively due to the way they were examined or tested - as might happen when goods are returned to a shop, for example. In addition, you are not obliged to pay compensation to the vendor for the loss in value of goods if their deterioration was caused through proper intended use if you did not use the goods as your own property and you did not do anything to cause their loss in value. Goods that can be sent as a parcel are returned at the vendor's own risk. You have to pay the costs of returning the goods to the vendor if the goods delivered to you were the goods you ordered, and if the price of the goods to be returned does not exceed €40, or if the price of the goods returned is higher but at the time of the cancellation you had not yet paid for them or made a contractually agreed part payment. Otherwise, you will not have to pay the costs of returning the goods to the vendor. Goods that cannot be sent in a parcel will be collected from you. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. This period starts for you on the day you send your declaration of cancellation or when you send the goods, and for the vendor this period begins when the cancellation or the returned goods are received.
Exclusion from the right of cancellation
Customers do not have a right to cancel a purchase order in cases where, for example, customized contracts for the supply of goods were agreed, or which were clearly tailor-made to suit individual requirements, or which are not suitable for returning to the vendor due to their condition, or which can be quickly spoiled or for which would exceed the expiry date, or for the delivery of audio or video recordings or software if the data carriers delivered have been unsealed by the customer, as well as for the delivery of newspapers and magazines, unless the customer has given a contractual declaration by telephone.
When services are provided, your right to cancellation will expire prematurely if the contract has been completely fulfilled by both parties at your explicit request before you have exercised your right to cancellation. This may mean that you must still fulfill your contractual payment obligations for the period up to the cancellation.
End of the cancellation instructions

Liability claims against the author, which are based on claims for material or intangible damages caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information, are all excluded unless the intentional or grossly negligent fault of the author can be proven.
All the offers on this website are non-binding. The author explicitly reserves the right to change, expand or delete parts of these web pages or the entire website without prior notice, or to temporarily or permanently discontinue its publication on the Internet.
Where there are direct or indirect references to external websites ("hyperlinks"), which are outside the area of responsibility of the author, a liability obligation would only enter into force in cases where the author is aware of their contents and it is technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent its use in the case of illegal content.
The author hereby explicitly declares that at the time of creating these links, no illegal content was found on the web pages to be linked to this website. The author has no influence on the current and future design, content or origin of the web pages linked to this website.

This statement applies to all the links and references created on our own website, as well as to the entries made by other people in the guest books, discussion forums, lists of links and mailing lists set up by the author, and in any other forms of databases to which external writing access is possible. Liability for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents on other websites, and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, is the responsibility of the author of the websites to which reference was made, and is not the responsibility of the author of this website who merely makes references to those other websites via links.
The author of this website has endeavored not to infringe the copyrights of the images, graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts used, and to use their own images, graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts, or to use graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts which are not protected by copyrights.
All the brand names and trademarks mentioned on this website and which may be protected by third parties are subject without restrictions to the requirements of the relevant trademark law and the rights of ownership of the respective registered owners. The mere naming of brand names and trademarks does not imply that they are not protected by the rights of third parties.
The copyright for all the published material created by the author of this website are held entirely by the author of this website. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, sound recordings, video sequences and texts in other online or printed publications is not permitted without the explicit consent of the author.
If the users of our website are able to enter personal or commercial data on this website (email addresses, names, addresses), these users are explicitly advised that they are giving this data voluntarily. All our services offered on our website may also be used and paid for without having to give such data or by giving anonymized data or a pseudonym, insofar as this is technically possible and reasonable. The use by third parties of contact data such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and email addresses, or similar information published on this website, for the transmission of information not explicitly required is not permitted. We explicitly reserve the right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mail in the event of violations of this prohibition.
This exclusion of liability is to be considered as part of our website in which this page is referred to. If any sections or the wording of individual conditions in this text are not, no longer or not fully compliant with current legislation, the contents and the legal validity of the other parts of this document shall remain unaffected by this.
