GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. scope of application
The following General Terms and Conditions shall apply as the exclusive basis for ordering and sending goods ordered via the online shop at www.sponser.at Sponser Europe GmbH. We do not accept conflicting or deviating terms and conditions of the customer unless we have expressly agreed to their validity in writing.
2. offer and acceptance
The offers of Sponser Europe GmbH are non-binding and subject to confirmation. They are an invitation to the orderer to submit a binding contract offer. The acceptance of an offer takes place either by delivery of the dispatch confirmation (e-mail) or by sending the goods. The automatically generated sales confirmation (e-mail) does not yet represent an acceptance of the offer, it only informs the customer that the order has been received by us.
3. revocation instruction
The orderer, who is a natural person and does not conclude the legal transaction with Sponser Europe GmbH predominantly for his commercial or independent activity (consumer in terms of § 13 BGB), has the following right of revocation. However, this does not apply to deliveries of goods which are made according to customer specifications or which are clearly tailored to personal needs.
a) Right of revocation
You can revoke your contractual declaration within two weeks without giving reasons in writing (eg letter, fax, e-mail) or by returning the goods. The period begins on the day on which you or a third party named by you who is not the carrier has taken possession of the goods. The timely dispatch of the revocation or the goods shall suffice to comply with the revocation period. The revocation is to be addressed to:
Sponser Europe GmbH
Heurie path 30
D-88131 Lindau, Germany
Phone +49 (0) 8382 260 277 0
Fax +49 (0) 8382 260 277 99 +49 (0) 8382 260 277 99
b) Consequences of revocation
In the event of an effective return, the services received by both parties are to be returned and any benefits derived are to be surrendered. In case of a deterioration of the goods, compensation can be demanded. This does not apply if the deterioration of the goods is exclusively due to their examination, as it would have been possible in a shop. In addition, you can avoid the obligation to pay compensation by not using the goods as an owner and refraining from anything that could impair their value. If you revoke the contract within 14 days after the goods have been received by the intended recipient and the order value is more than 40 euros, we will refund the cost of returning the goods by crediting the corresponding amount to your account. However, this does not apply to orders where no consideration has been received at the time of revocation. With an order value up to 40, - Euro you have to bear the regular return costs, unless the delivered does not correspond to the ordered commodity or the commodity is damaged. Only unopened products will be taken back, unless the goods are damaged. We may refuse to refund until we have received the goods back or eventually until proof has been furnished that you have returned the goods.
