§ 1 General

(1) The following "General Terms and Conditions" (GTC) apply in the version valid on the day of the order for the sale and delivery of goods by the Schauraum für angewandte Kunst (SAK). Any agreements to the contrary must be made in writing. By placing an order, the customer agrees to these GTC and is bound by them.

(2) Should individual provisions of these GTC be or become ineffective in whole or in part due to mandatory statutory provisions, the remaining provisions of these GTC shall remain effective unchanged.

§ 2 Conclusion of contract

(1) SAK reserves the right to change the content of the respective service offer at any time. All offers by SAK are subject to change and are to be understood as an invitation to the customer to submit an offer himself.

(2) The contract is concluded by acceptance of the order by SAK, either by sending an order confirmation by post, fax or e-mail, but at the latest with the delivery of the goods.

§ 3 Right of withdrawal - "money back" guarantee

(1) Customers who are consumers within the meaning of the Consumer Protection Act may withdraw from the purchase 14 days after taking delivery of the goods without giving reasons. It is sufficient if the declaration of withdrawal is sent within the period without giving reasons.

(2) In the event of withdrawal, the purchase price shall be refunded concurrently with the return of the goods received from the customer. The condition for this is that the goods are in an unused condition and can be resold as new. The costs of the return shipment shall be borne by the customer.

§ 7 Defects

(1) If the parcel shows external damage on delivery, the customer is requested to record the defects in writing together with the deliverer (postman) and to check the goods in his presence for a possible refund.

(3) In the event of a justified complaint about a defect, SAK is entitled at its discretion to rectify the defect or to make a replacement delivery.
