§ 1 Area of applicability
For business relations to the purchaser the following General Terms and Conditions of Business apply to orders made via the Internet in the version applicable up placing the order.
§ 2 Conclusion of a contract
The presentation of our products on our website solely calls on the customer to place a contractual offer. By the customer’s transmitting an order, the customer places an offer in the terms of § 145 German Civil Code. The customer receives a confirmation of receipt in connection with the order per email. We shall, if necessary separately, inform the customer of possible errors in the specifications of the range on our website and shall submit a corresponding counter offer. The customer dispenses with an acceptance declaration, § 151 S. 1 German Civil Code. The contract between the customer and Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification materializes when we accept the offer of the customer within 10 days in writing or in simple text or consign the goods ordered. Should the agreed upon mode of payment be cash in advance we assume the contract to be accepted upon the customer’s paying in advance, if the payment is effected within 10 days after transmitting the order.
§ 3 Delivery, consignment costs, transfer of risk
(1) We are entitled to make partial deliveries should one part of the ordered goods not be on stock temporarily. If the consumer goods purchase contract is effected on a national basis, we shall bear the additional shipping costs – whatever the circumstances may be.
(2) Delivery is carried out at the consignments costs drawn up for the individual case. The risk of delivery is borne by the customer. As soon as the items have been transferred to a transportation company the risk is borne by the customer. This regulation also applies to partial deliveries. The delivery is affected to the address provided by the customer. If the buyer is a consumer in the terms of § 13 German Civil Code, the risk of accidental loss and of accidental deterioration of the item sold, also in the case of a contract of sale involving the carriage of goods, is borne by the purchaser but not before surrender of the item to said buyer has been effected. Even if the buyer delays acceptance, the surrender has been affected.
(3) The goods shall be inspected for transportation damage immediately upon acceptance by the customer or his/her representative. Notice of any transportation damages detected shall be drawn up without delay and in writing. The customer shall have packaging damages confirmed in writing by the forwarder upon acceptance of the goods.
(4) Claims for damages against Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification for non-fulfillment or delay are excluded, provided neither intent nor gross negligence is involved.
(5) Bearing the costs for standard return consignments when availing oneself of the right of revocation pursuant to § 312d. You shall bear the costs for the return consignment if the goods supplied comply with the goods ordered and if the price of the returned item does not exceed the sum of Euro 40 or if the value of the item is higher and you have not yet paid the purchase price or have not settled a contractually agreed upon installment at the time of revocation. Otherwise the return consignment is free of charge.
(6) For goods supplied beyond the boarders of the European Union and Switzerland, import taxes (customs duty) may be due; the latter borne by the addressee.
§ 4 Reservation of title
The goods supplied remain our sole property until complete payment of the purchase price has been received.
§ 5 Warranty and claims for damages
(1) Specifications and information in connection with the utilization and suitability of the goods we supply are without engagement and shall not provide an entitlement to claim for damages. Otherwise a guarantee is provided that the goods were of approximately the agreed upon appearance and workmanship upon submission, i.e. were free of material defects. This means that the items are suitable for the use drawn up in the contract or standard use and prove to be of the appearance and workmanship that is standard for the same type of items and which the customer may expect in connection with said item and/or from our specifications, or the specifications of the manufacturer respectively. Properties of the goods according to our specifications, the marking or advertisement only then comply with the agreed upon properties when the latter has expressly been mentioned in the offer, has been confirmed by us in writing or identified as such in the order confirmation.
(2) The warranty period for new items is 24 months. The deadline begins upon transfer of risk. The warranty period for second-hand items is one year. If the customer is a businessman in the terms of § 14 German Civil Code, the guarantee period for new items is one year and for second hand items six months starting upon transfer of risk.
(3) Defects and damages that may be traced to the culpable or improper treatment or improper installation and the use of unsuitable accessories or to modifications made to original parts by the customer or by a third party not commissioned by Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification are also excluded from guarantee.
(4) Natural wear and tear is also excluded from warranty.
(5) If the customer accepts the goods or the object of the order despite knowing of a defect, he/she shall only be entitled to the extent of warranty as drawn up if he/she expressly reserves the right to do so in writing immediately upon receipt of the goods.
(6) The customer shall only be entitled to warranty claims for existing transportation damages if said customer has complied with his/her commitment to examine and notify the supplier. The customer shall check the consignment immediately for transportation damages and shall notify the forwarder or Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification correspondingly. The latter does not apply if the customer is consumer in the terms of §13 German Civil Code.
(7) Otherwise warranty is dealt with according to the statutory regulations.
(8) All computer articles and all parts subject to wear and tear such as strings, illuminates, spotlights, faders, sticks, accumulators or batteries, all tubes, even if installed etc. are excluded from the property or durability guarantees, as they are subject to wear due to usage or to subject to natural wear and tear.
(9) The company Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification is solely liable for other damages than those resulting from injury to life, body and health if such damages can be traced to intentional or grossly negligent acts or to culpable violation of an essential contractual obligation by Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification or its vicarious agents (e.g. the delivery services) of the company Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification. Liability, particularly for damages which have not occurred to the goods themselves and for other financial losses is excluded, provided the damages are not solely due to slight negligence on our part. The limitation of liability does not apply to damages that have arisen due to the lack of a property which we had guaranteed. A further liability for damages is excluded. Provisions of the Product Liability Act remain unaffected. If an essential contractual obligation is negligently violated, the liability of Tilman Ritter / RITTER Amplification is limited to the ensuing damage that may be expected.
