Payment is made upon delivery by
– direct debit

If Andrea Vosikova can prove a higher damage caused by default, Andrea Vosikova is entitled to claim this damage.
Right of retention
The customer is only entitled to exercise a right of retention insofar as his counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.
(1) Delivery is made to the delivery address given by the customer, within
(2) If force majeure (natural disasters, war, civil war, terrorist attack) makes the delivery or any other service permanently impossible, Andrea Vosikova’s obligation to perform is excluded. Already paid amounts will be refunded by Andrea Vosikova immediately.
(3) Andrea Vosikova is also entitled to refuse the service, as far as this requires an effort, which is grossly disproportionate to the customer’s interest in the fulfillment of the purchase contract, taking into account the content of the purchase contract and the dictates of good faith. Already paid amounts will be refunded by Andrea Vosikova immediately.
(4) Bulky goods (packages with a volume larger than 1 sqm) are usually delivered by a forwarding agency. Andrea Vosikova explicitly points out that these goods will not be carried into the house.
Favorable shipping method for returns
(1) When returning the goods and accessories, please use the original packaging if possible, even if it is damaged due to an opening for functional testing.
(2) Please use the fully stamped and addressed return label enclosed with the delivery of goods for the return. This is the simplest and most cost-effective shipping option. You are under no obligation to use this return method. However, if you choose an unnecessarily expensive shipping method, you may be obligated to pay us the increased cost compared to a less expensive shipping method.
Retention of title
Until full settlement of all claims against the customer arising from the purchase contract, the delivered goods remain the property of Andrea Vosikova. As long as this retention of title exists, the customer may neither resell the goods nor dispose of the goods; in particular, the customer may not contractually grant third parties any use of the goods.
(1) Andrea Vosikova will, at the customer’s option and at Andrea Vosikova’s expense, replace a product that is already defective upon delivery (warranty case) with a defect-free product or have it professionally repaired (supplementary performance). It is pointed out to the customer that there is no case of warranty if the product had the agreed quality at the time of transfer of risk. A warranty case does not exist in particular in the following cases:
a)in the case of damage caused to the customer by misuse or improper use,
b)in the case of damage caused by the fact that the products have been exposed to harmful external influences at the customer’s premises (in particular extreme temperatures, moisture, abnormal weather conditions, etc.).
(2) Andrea Vosikova further does not warrant for a defect caused by improper repair by a service partner not authorized by the manufacturer.
(3) If the type of supplementary performance requested by the customer (replacement delivery or repair) requires an effort that is grossly disproportionate to the customer’s interest in performance in view of the product price, taking into account the content of the contract and the requirements of good faith – whereby in particular the value of the object of purchase in a defect-free condition, the significance of the defect and the question of whether the other type of supplementary performance can be resorted to without significant disadvantages for the customer – the customer’s claim is limited to the respective other type of supplementary performance. The right of Andrea Vosikova to refuse also this other kind of supplementary performance under the aforementioned condition remains unaffected.
(4) In case of repair as well as in case of replacement, the customer is obliged to send the product at Andrea Vosikova’s expense to the return address given by Andrea Vosikova, stating the order number. Before sending the product, the customer has to remove any objects inserted by him from the product. Andrea Vosikova is not obligated to inspect the product for the insertion of such items. Andrea Vosikova shall not be liable for the loss of such items, unless it was readily apparent to Andrea Vosikova at the time the product was returned that such an item had been inserted into the product (in which case Andrea Vosikova shall inform the customer and hold the item ready for collection by the customer; the customer shall bear the costs incurred in doing so). In addition, before sending a product for repair or replacement, the customer shall, if necessary, make separate backup copies of the system software, applications and all data on the product on a separate data carrier and deactivate all passwords. No liability for loss of data will be assumed. Likewise, after the repaired product or the replacement product has been returned to the customer, the customer shall be responsible for installing the software and data and reactivating the passwords.
(5) If the customer sends in the goods in order to receive a replacement product, the return of the defective product shall be governed by the following provisions: If the customer was able to use the goods in a defect-free condition between delivery and return, the customer shall reimburse the value of the benefits derived by the customer. The customer shall pay compensation for the value of any loss or further deterioration of the goods not caused by the defect and for the impossibility of surrendering the goods not caused by the defect in the period between delivery of the goods and return of the goods. The customer does not have to pay compensation for the deterioration of the goods caused by the intended use of the goods. Furthermore, the obligation to pay compensation for the value shall not apply to the return of a defective product in the case of warranty,
a)if the defect entitling the customer to withdraw from the contract only became apparent during processing or remodeling,
b)if Andrea Vosikova is responsible for the deterioration or loss or if the damage would have occurred at Andrea Vosikova as well,
c)if the deterioration or loss has occurred at the customer’s, although the customer has taken the care he is accustomed to take in his own affairs.
(6) The customer’s liability for damages in the event of a breach of the obligation to return the goods for which the customer is responsible shall be governed by the statutory provisions.
(7) The customer may, at its option, withdraw from the contract or reduce the purchase price if the repair or replacement delivery has not resulted in a condition of the product in accordance with the contract within a reasonable period of time.
(8) In addition, claims against the manufacturer may also exist within the framework of a warranty granted by the manufacturer, which are governed by the corresponding warranty conditions.
(9) The legal warranty of Andrea Vosikova ends two years after delivery of the goods. The period begins with the receipt of the goods.
(1) In case of slight negligence Andrea Vosikova is only liable for the violation of essential contractual obligations and limited to the foreseeable damage. This limitation does not apply in case of injury to life, body and health. Andrea Vosikova is not liable for other damages caused by slight negligence due to a defect of the object of purchase.
(2) Regardless of Andrea Vosikova’s fault, Andrea Vosikova’s liability remains unaffected in case of fraudulent concealment of the defect or from the assumption of a guarantee. The manufacturer’s warranty is a warranty of the manufacturer and does not constitute an assumption of a warranty by Andrea Vosikova.
(3) Andrea Vosikova is also responsible for the impossibility of delivery occurring by chance during her delay, unless the damage would also have occurred in case of timely delivery.
(4) Personal liability of Andrea Vosikova’s legal representatives, vicarious agents and employees for damages caused by them due to slight negligence is excluded.
The contract concluded between you and Andrea Vosikova is exclusively governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany with the express exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. This does not affect the mandatory provisions of the state in which you have your habitual residence.
