General Conditions of Business of Groundies GmbH

The English wording is just for information. The German wording shall prevail.

1. Scope of Application

All deliveries, services and offers of Groundies GmbH (hereinafter referred to as: Groundies GmbH) are exclusively made/rendered on the basis of these General Conditions of Business. Any diverging terms and conditions of the buyer that are not expressly recognized in writing shall be non-binding even if they are not expressly contradicted.

2. Offer and Conclusion of Contract

Any details stated in advertising texts and letters are not to be regarded as guaranteed attributes of the product or guarantees, unless otherwise agreed. Our website is not to be qualified as an offer. The customer will receive an acknowledgement first. The contract is concluded with the dispatch of goods or a separate acceptance of the customer’s order by Groundies GmbH.

3. Right of withdrawal

Right of withdrawal

The withdrawal period will expire after 30 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (Groundies GmbH, Heinrich-von-Stephan-Straße 17, 79100 Freiburg - Germany, [email protected] Phone +49 761 45 89 29-52) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail). You may use the attached model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.

To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

Effecty of withdrawal

If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us.

You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods.

You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

The right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts for the supply of goods that are not prefabricated and for the manufacture of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer (§ 312g BGB).
