FOR THIS, YOU MAY USE THE ATTACHED WITHDRAWAL FORM, ALTHOUGH THIS IS NOT A STRICT REQUIREMENT.

§ 8 Limitation of Liability
We kindly ask you to give us or the deliverer immediate notice of any defects upon delivery of the goods, such as apparent transport defects. The omission of giving us notice does not affect your statutory rights, unless the purchase is a commercial transaction and you have the requirement to make a complaint according to § 377 HGB (German Commercial Code). With your instant notification you enable us to claim our own rights against the deliverer or the transport insurance.
In the event that the goods are defective at the time of delivery, you may initially demand subsequent performance under the statutory provisions. If subsequent performance fails, you are entitled at your discretion to either reduce the purchase price or withdraw from the contract and claim compensation.
We are unrestrictedly liable under the statutory provisions for any injury to life, body and health caused by a negligent or wilful breach of obligations.
Our liability for property damages and financial loss is limited to damages/losses caused grossly negligent or wilfully.
If we breach a material contractual obligation or a cardinal obligation, i.e. an obligation whose fulfilment is essential to the due and proper performance of the contract and of which compliance you may regularly rely, we shall be liable for property damage and financial loss even in cases of slight negligence. This also applies to compensation claims in place of performance.
As far as we have violated a material or cardinal contractual obligation arising from slight negligence, our liability is limited to foreseeable damage typical to the contract.
The limitation of liability pursuant to the provisions above is also applicable if we are unable to deliver by accident in the course of delay or if the customer exercises other rights, in particular on the grounds of tort or a claim for reimbursement of expenses in place of performance. The limitation of liability pursuant to the provisions above is not applicable if we issued a guarantee as well as if liability is mandatory according to statutory provisions, such as the Product Liability Act ("Produkthaftungsgesetz").
Beyond this, our liability is excluded.
Our liability, limitation or exclusion of liability to the aforementioned extent shall also apply to damages caused through breaches of our employees', workers', staff's, representatives' and auxiliary persons' obligations.
§ 9 Customer services/Dispute resolution
In the event of any problems or disagreements, we will always strive to find a solution in the interest of our customers. Our dedicated customer service team is happy to help you with advice and assistance. You can telephone us on +49 (0) 9287 67048-23 (office hours: Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm CET). You can also email us at email@example.com or use our contact form to tell us about your concerns.
The European Commission also provides a platform for online dispute resolution (ODR). This is available at https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. However, we are neither under an obligation nor prepared to participate in a dispute resolution procedure that has been referred to a consumers’ conciliation board.
§ 10 Governing Law/Jurisdiction
The contractual relations of the parties to this contract are governed by and construed in accordance with German Law. This choice of law does not apply to consumers inasmuch as it deprives consumer protection rights mandatory according to the law of the state in which consumers have their habitual place of residence. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
