General Terms and Conditions
General Business Terms
for Legal Transactions between I.T. Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH and Consumers.
- The following General Business Terms shall apply to legal transactions between I.T. Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH and Consumers.
- Contradictory provisions and provisions which deviate from these General Business Terms shall not be recognised and are hereby explicitly objected to as a precautionary measure. This objection shall also apply to the event that the consumer has stipulated a special form for the objection. If an objection is excluded then the statutory provisions shall replace the contradictory terms and conditions. A recognition of deviating Terms of Purchase shall only occur if their application has been confirmed in writing and explicitly by I.T. Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH.
§2 Conclusion of contract
- The offered goods do not represent any legally binding offers of I.T. Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH according to § 145 BGB [Civil Code], but are non-binding requests to the consumer to place a binding order for goods.
- No warranty is assumed for the accuracy, completeness and actuality of the presented texts and diagrams. Oral information, which is provided outside of a written order, is non-binding. Already received texts and diagrams merely serve the purpose of information. They are non-binding and do not release from an own examination obligation.
- After the input of the personal data and by clicking the button “purchase” or “order binding” in the final step of the order process the consumer submits a binding order of the goods contained in the shopping basket. The confirmation of the receipt of the order is carried out directly after receipt of the order by us. No purchase contract is concluded yet with this order confirmation. The purchase contract shall only be concluded with our explicit confirmation or with the delivery of the goods. If a confirmation or delivery is not carried out by no later than within two weeks after the receipt of the order the order shall be deemed as not accepted. You can correct faults with the input of the order by clicking on the “back” button of the browser and then correcting the faulty input. The contractual data are stored in our company for at least 90 days and can be called by you upon request. The buyer himself is responsible for a longer-term data storage.
- Should it not be possible to deliver an ordered good I.T. Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH reserves the right to offer the consumer a product which is equivalent in price and quality by sending it. The consumer is of course at liberty to accept this offer. Should the offer not be accepted by the consumer the consumer is requested to return the goods at the risk and costs of I.T. Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH.
- If justified misgivings arise after the acceptance of the order concerning the solvency or creditworthiness of the consumer I.T. Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH is entitled to render the fulfilment of the contract either dependent on an advance payment or provision of collateral or to cancel the contract.
§ 3 Right to revocation
The consumer can revoke his contractual declaration within 14 days without stating any reasons in a text form (e.g. letter, e-mail) or – if the object is handed over to him before expiry of the deadline – also by returning the object. The deadline shall begin after the receipt of these instructions in a text form, however not before receipt of the goods by the recipient (with the recurring delivery of equivalent goods not before the receipt of the first partial delivery) nor before satisfaction of our information obligations according to Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 Par. 1 and 2 EGBGB [Introductory Act to the Civil Code] as well as our duties according to § 312g Par. 1 Sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB. The timely despatch of the revocation or the object is sufficient to safeguard the deadline for revocation. The revocation is to be sent to:
I.T.Intertechnik Kerpen GmbH
50170 Kerpen, Germany
Fax: +49 2273 908435
Consequences of revocation:
In the event of an effective revocation the services received by both parties are to be refunded and if applicable drawn benefits (e.g. interest) are to be handed over. If the consumer cannot refund or hand over the received service as well as benefits to us (e.g. benefits from use) or partly not or only in a deteriorated condition he must compensate us for the value. The consumer only has to pay compensation for the value for the deterioration to the object and for drawn benefits insofar as the uses or the deterioration is a result of a handling of the object, which goes beyond the examination of the properties and the method of functioning. To be understood under “examination of the properties and the method of functioning” are the testing and sampling of the respective goods such as for example is possible and customary in a store. Incidentally the obligation to compensate for value can be avoided by the fact that the consumer does not take the product into use as an owner and everything is refrained from which could impair its value. The consumer shall bear the regular costs of the return shipment if the delivered goods correspond with those which were ordered. Obligations for the reimbursement of payments must be satisfied within 30 days. The deadline shall begin for the consumer with the despatch of their declaration of revocation or the object, for us with their receipt.
End of the instructions for revocation.
