§ 5 Prices, Shipping Costs


All prices that are stated in our Internet Shop are regarded as including the currently valid statutory value-added tax. In addition, shipping costs are incurred to ship goods.

All information on shipping costs can be found here: http://www.german-stil-vapor.de/shop/en/payment-/-dispatch .



§ 6 Delivery


1. Shipment is made by sending the goods ex warehouse to the address indicated by the Customer. Provided that delivery with advance payment has been agreed upon, the delivery time within Germany is 6 to 8 working days after receiving the purchase price. This information is non-binding unless otherwise agreed. Special delivery times are found on the item description.

§ 7 Return Shipping Costs in the Event of Cancellation


In the event of cancellation, you must bear the return shipment costs. Your return shipment must also have transportation insurance amounting to at least the total price of the returned items.

Payments for the purchase price are due directly after concluding the Contract. We will give you our banking information in the order confirmation, provided that you select “payment in advance” as your payment option. A right of retention on the part of the Customer may only be exercised, if the claims result from the same contractual relationship.


§ 9 Warranty


1. The warranty is determined in accordance with legal provisions.


2. The warranty period for Customer claims is two years for consumers of newly manufactured items and one year for used items. The warranty period for newly manufactured items and used items is one year in the case of legal transactions with business people.


3. If an item is defective, the Customer has the right to demand that the defects be remedied or that an item free of defects be delivered as a remedy at the Customer’s discretion. The german-stil-vapor Internet Shop can refuse the type of remedy selected by the Customer without prejudice to § 275 Par. 2 and 3 of the German Civil Code (BGB), if the remedy is only possible with disproportionate costs. In addition, the value of the item when free from defects, the significance of the defects, and the question whether the other type of remedy could be resorted to without significant disadvantages to the purchaser must be considered. The Customer’s claim is limited in this case to the other type of remedy; the Internet Shop german-stil-vapor’s right to refuse this other type of remedy under the conditions of § 9 No. 1 remains untouched.


4. If the purchase is a commercial transaction for both parties, the Customer must examine the goods immediately after the delivery, provided that this is feasible in the orderly course of business. If defects becomes apparent, the Customer must give notice of it immediately. If the Customer fails to give notice, the goods are regarded as approved unless it is the case of defects that were not identifiable during the examination. If such defects become apparent later, notice must be given immediately after the discovery, otherwise the goods are regarded as approved even despite these defects. These provisions do not apply, if the defects were fraudulently concealed. Timely dispatch of the notice shall be sufficient for the Customer to preserve its rights.


5. If the german-stil-vapor Internet Shopdelivers an item that is free of defects as a remedy, german-stil-vapor can demand that the Customer return the defective item in accordance with §§ 346 to 348 BGB. 


6.
