  • Verbal (telephone) and / or written confirmation (E-mail)

The contract shall materialise when the order confirmation is sent out.

Term of the contract

Subject to notice of termination being served, the term of the contract shall cover the services or workshop services covered. The total price shall be worked out on the basis of the following components: the total price shall be calculated for the service packages selected plus an additional 19% for VAT.

Prices, Despatch costs, Costs of returns

The prices shall be shown net plus the statutory rate of VAT. In addition to the final prices additional costs shall be incurred depending on the method of dispatch, which will be notified to the Customer prior to the order being placed. If the Customer is entitled to return the goods and he exercises this right, the Customer shall bear the costs of return.

Terms of Payment

The Customer shall only have the following payment options: payment by direct debit, payment through a payment service provider (PayPal), payment in cash upon collection, credit card. No other methods of payment are available and will be rejected. The invoiced amount shall be collected by the Supplier from the account stated by the Customer by means of the direct debit method on the basis of the Customer’s direct debit mandate. When using a trustee service / payment service provider, this will enable the Supplier and Customer to handle the payment between themselves. In doing so the trustee service / payment service provider shall forward the Customer’s payment on to the Supplier. You may find further information from the website of the respective trustee service / payment service provider. The invoiced amount may also be paid in cash subtracting the despatch costs charged in the Supplier’s offices during his normal hours of business. The Customer must be the cardholder when making a payment by credit card. The payment shall be debited from the credit card after the goods have been despatched. The Customer shall be obliged to pay or transfer the amount shown on the invoice within 7 days from receipt of the invoice. Payment shall be payable in full from the date of invoice. The Customer shall only be in default after he has received a payment reminder.

Terms of delivery

The service ordered shall be rendered at the agreed time and date. The Customer shall be informed straight away of any delays.

Right of revocation and After Sales Service

The regulations governing distance sales shall not apply for Customers which are a registered business. Consequently, this Customer shall not be entitled to a corresponding right of revocation on account of him having entered into a distance sale contract. The Supplier shall not grant such a right either.

Exclusion of liability

No compensation claims asserted by the Customer for damages shall be accepted, insofar as there is nothing substantiated to the contrary by the following reasons. This shall also apply for the Supplier’s representative and assistants, if the Customer raises compensation claims for damages against them. Exceptions to this are compensation claims asserted by the Customer based upon death, personal injury or physical harm or the Supplier’s failure to fulfil important contractual duties which have to be fulfilled by necessity for the contractual objective to be achieved. Likewise, this shall not apply for compensation claims asserted for damages following a breach of duty attributable to the gross negligence or intent of the Supplier or his legal representative or assistants.

Prohibition of Assignment and Pledging

The Customer’s claims or rights against the Supplier must not be assigned or pledged without the latter’s consent, unless the Customer has a justified interest in assigning or pledging them.

Language, Place of jurisdiction and Applicable law

The contract shall be drafted in German or English. The contractual relationship shall subsequently be handled in German or English. The contract shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany alone. This shall only apply for consumers to the extent that no statutory regulations laid down by the state in which the Customer has his place of residence or normal whereabouts are impaired as a result. The place of jurisdiction for disputes arising with customers who are not consumers, legal entities created under public law, or special funds created under public law, shall be the courts having jurisdiction where the Supplier has his principal place of business.

Data protection

Data will be collected, saved and processed by the Supplier in connection with setting up, entering into, handling and reversing a purchase contract on the basis of these T&Cs. This shall be carried out in line with the statutory regulations.

If a third party is called in to provide services in connection with handling processing procedures, the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act shall be observed. The data notified by the Customer when placing an order shall only be used for contacting him as part of handling the contract and only for the purpose for which the data was provided by the Customer.
