§ 2 Conclusion of the contract

By clicking the button “complete order”, you will issue a binding order for the goods contained in the shopping basket. Confirmation of receipt of the order will be carried out by means of an automated e-mail, directly after the offer has been sent, and does not yet constitute an acceptance of the contract. We shall have the right to accept your order by means of sending a separate order confirmation by e-mail, or by delivering the goods within five days.
2) Should the order confirmation contain spelling or printing mistakes, or should our price calculation be based on technical transmission mistakes, we shall have the right to declare avoidance of the contract, whereby we shall be obligated to provide proof of our error. Payments which have already been effected will be promptly reimbursed.

§ 3 Right of withdrawal for the Consumer
1) Consumer shall have a right of withdrawal which may be exercised within a period of two weeks:

Advice on your right of withdrawal

You are entitled withdraw from this contract within 14 days without having to provide reasons for this withdrawal. The withdrawal period is fourteen days from the day on which you or a third party named by you, not the carrier, has taken possession of the goods. In order to exercise your right of withdrawal you have to inform us,

Stephan Großmann. Hoeschstr. 4, 76593 Gernsbach, Germany

Tel: +49 7224 6970087

email: stephan@grossmann-audio.de

by means of an unambiguous statement (such as a letter sent by post, a telefax or an e-mail) of your decision to withdraw from this contract. You may use the attached template form, but this is not mandatory. In order to meet the deadline for the withdrawal declaration, it will be sufficient for you to dispatch the notification informing us that you are exercising your right of withdrawal prior to expiry of the withdrawal period.

Consequences of a withdrawal

If you revoke this contract, we are obligated to repay to you all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs which result from you having chosen a method of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay, and not later than within fourteen days from the day on which we receive your notification informing us that you are withdrawing from this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same payment method which you used in your original transaction, unless we have expressly agreed otherwise; you will not be charged any fees on account of this repayment. We shall have the right to refuse repayment up until we have received return shipment of the goods or you have provided us with proof that you have sent the goods back to us, whichever happens first.

You are obligated to return or hand over the goods to us, without undue delay, and never later than within fourteen days from the day on which you notify us of your withdrawal from this contract. This dealine shall be deemed to have been met if you dispatch the goods prior to expiry of the fourteen-day deadline. You shall bear the direct costs of the return shipment of the goods. You will only have to bear a loss in value of the goods if such loss in value was caused by you handling the goods in a manner which was not necessary in order to examine the quality, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
