Right to cancel
You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without giving reasons.
The cancellation period is fourteen days from the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, took possession of the goods.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must inform us (Bernd Schürmann GmbH & Co KG, Meinekestr. 12, D-10719 Berlin, firstname.lastname@example.org, Fax +49 (0) 30 2100 5741, Tel. +49 (0) 30 2100 5740) by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter or e-mail sent by post) of your decision to cancel this contract. You may use the attached sample cancellation form to do so, although this is not mandatory.
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient to notify us that you intend to exercise your right of cancellation before the cancellation deadline.
Consequences of cancellation
If you cancel the contract, we must refund all payments that we have received from you, including delivery costs (except for the extra costs resulting from your having chosen a different type of delivery from the cheapest standard delivery offered by us) without undue delay and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which we receive notification that you are cancelling the contract. To make this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless otherwise expressly agreed with you; under no circumstances will you be charged any fees for this repayment. We can refuse to make the repayment until we have received the goods back or you have provided proof that you have sent back the goods, whichever is earlier.
You must send the goods back or hand them over to us without undue delay or, in any case, no later than within fourteen days from the day on which you inform us that you are cancelling the contract. You are considered to have met the deadline if you send the goods back before the fourteen day period passes. You bear the direct costs of sending the goods back.
You must pay for any diminished value of the goods only if such a loss in value is due to the goods being handled in a way other than that necessary to check the quality, features and functioning of the goods.

Section 9 Warranty
9.1 If you are a consumer, the warranty is governed by the statutory provisions.
9.2 If you place your order with us as an entrepreneur, the following applies:
9.2.1 Delivered goods must be inspected by the Customer immediately after delivery, insofar as this is feasible in the ordinary course of business. If a defect becomes apparent, we must be notified immediately. If the Customer fails to give notification, the goods shall be considered to be approved, unless the fault is one that could not be detected during the inspection. If such a fault is discovered later, the notification must be made immediately upon its discovery; the goods shall otherwise be considered approved even in regard to this fault. Section 377 HGB (German Commercial Code) remains unaffected. The Customer is not released from his obligation to inspect the goods even in the event of recourse by the entrepreneur according to Section 478 BGB (German Civil Code). If in such cases he does not immediately report the defect asserted by his customer, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved even in view of this defect.
9.2.2 Insofar as a defect exists, we are entitled to determine the type of subsequent performance, taking into account the type of defect and the justified interests of the Customer. Subsequent performance shall be deemed to have failed in these contracts after the third unsuccessful attempt. This clause shall not apply in the event of recourse according to Section 478 BGB.
9.2.3 In the event of subsequent performance in the case of defects, we are only obliged to bear the expenses required for this, in particular transport, travel, labour and material costs, to the extent that these are not increased by the fact that the item has been taken to a place other than the registered office or the commercial establishment of the Customer to which the delivery was made. This clause shall not apply in the event of recourse according to Section 478 BGB.
9.2.4 The Customer’s claims for defects, including claims for damages, are subject to a limitation period of one year. This does not apply in the case of recourse according to Section 478 BGB or in the cases of Sections 438 (1) (2) BGB and Section 634a (1) (2) BGB. This also does not apply to claims for damages due to injury to life, body or health or due to a grossly negligent or intentional breach of duty by us or our vicarious agents.
Section 10 Liability for compensation and reimbursement of expenses
10.1 If you are a consumer, we shall be liable for damages in accordance with the statutory provisions.
10.2 If you place your order with us as an entrepreneur, the following shall apply in the event of our contractual liability for damages according to clauses 10.2 to 10.8:
10.2.1 If the claims are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by us, our representatives or our vicarious agents, we shall be liable for damages in accordance with the statutory provisions.
10.2.2 If we or our representatives or vicarious agents have through slight negligence breached an obligation, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract, the breach of which jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of the contract and the observance of which the Customer regularly relies on, liability shall be limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
10.2.3 Unless otherwise stipulated in clauses 10.2.1 and 10.2.2, our liability for damages is excluded. The same shall also apply insofar as recourse claims according to Section 478 BGB are asserted against us as suppliers.
10.3 The exclusions and limitations of liability under clause 10.2 shall also apply to other claims, in particular claims in tort or claims for the reimbursement of wasted expenses instead of performance.
10.4 The exclusions and limitations of liability under clause 10.2 shall not apply to any existing claims under Sections 1 and 4 of the German Product Liability Act or based on culpable injury to life, limb or health. They shall also not apply insofar as we have provided a guarantee for the quality of our goods or a performance success or a procurement risk and the guarantee case has occurred or the procurement risk has materialised.
10.5 Unless the limitation of liability pursuant to clause 10.2 applies in the case of claims arising from producer’s liability under Section 823 BGB, our liability shall be limited to the insurance compensation. Insofar as this does not cover the amount, or does not cover it in full, we are obliged to accept liability up to the amount of the sum insured. This clause does not apply in the case of culpable injury to life, body or health.
10.6 If our liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply for personal liability on the part of our employees, workers, staff, representatives and vicarious agents.
10.7 The above provisions do not entail a reversal of the burden of proof.

Section 12 Place of performance, jurisdiction
12.1 German law shall apply under exclusion of United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
12.2 In the case of Customers who conclude the contract for purposes that predominantly are outside his trade, business or profession (consumers), this choice of law shall not affect the mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the Customer has his habitual residence.
12.3 For all disputes arising from the contractual relationship, if the Customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the place of jurisdiction shall be the registered office of our company in Berlin.
Section 13 Other provisions

13.2 The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (ODR). This can be accessed via the following internet address: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. We are not willing or obliged to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before the consumer arbitration board.
