Note: As a mail order business, we do not have a retail store. However, appointments can be arranged if so requested.
Section 3 Conclusion of the Agreement
(1) The presentation of the goods in the online shop is not a binding offer of the seller for entering into a purchase agreement. It merely represents an invitation to the customer to submit an offer by way of an order.
(2) By sending the order via the online shop, the customer gives a binding offer for entering into a purchase agreement regarding the goods contained in the shopping cart. By sending the order, the customer shall also acknowledge that the legal relationship with the seller is subject only to these General Terms and Conditions.
(3) The seller confirms receipt of the customer's order by sending a confirmation e-mail. This confirmation of order shall not yet constitute the seller's acceptance of the offer of contract. It merely serves as information for the customer that the order has been received by the seller.
(4) Acceptance of the offer of contract shall be declared by shipping of the goods or an express declaration of acceptance.
(5) The processing of the order and transmission of all information necessary in the context of entering into an agreement will be realised by e-mail and is partially automated. Therefore, the customer shall ensure that the e-mail address that the customer provides to the seller is correct, and shall further ensure the technical means for receiving e-mails as well as shall ensure that e-mails are not blocked by antispam filters.
Section 4 Cancellation Policy
Right to Cancel
You may cancel this agreement within 14 days without having to state reasons.
The cancellation period shall be 14 days from the day on which you or third parties named by you who are not carriers take possession of the goods.
To exercise your right to cancel, you shall inform us (Kulmine, Petra Sood e.K., Stettiner Str. 6, 49088 Osnabrück, Phone: +(0)541 18 59 117, Fax: +(0)3212 58 56 463, E-mail: email@example.com) about your decision to cancel this agreement by means of a clear statement (e.g., posted letter, fax or e-mail). You may use the attached cancellation form, but this is not mandatory. You shall send your notice about exercising your right to cancel the agreement prior to expiry of the cancellation period in order to be deemed in compliance with the cancellation period.
Consequences of Cancellation
If you cancel this agreement, we shall return to you all payments that we have received from you, including shipping costs (except for additional costs that result from your choice of a shipping method other than the less expensive, standard shipping offered by us), immediately and no later than within 14 days from the day on which we receive your notice about the cancellation of this agreement. For this return of payment, we shall use the same method of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless we have agreed with you expressly on a different method; under no circumstances will you be charged any fees for this repayment. We may withhold such repayment until the goods have been returned to us or you have furnished proof that you have returned the goods to us, whichever comes earlier.
You shall return or hand back to us the goods immediately and, at any rate, no later than within 14 days from the day on which you notify us of your cancellation of the agreement. The deadline shall be deemed met if you ship the goods back to us prior to expiry of the period of 14 days. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods. You will be responsible for any diminished value of the goods only if such loss in value is due to your handling the goods in a manner that is not necessary to test the goods for quality, characteristics and functioning.
Exclusion of the Right to Cancel
The right to cancel shall not apply to agreements for the delivery of goods that are not prefabricated and whose manufacture depends on an individual choice or specification of the consumer or that are uniquely customised for the personal requirements of the consumer.
