3. Offer and Contract Conclusion

3.1

The presentation of our products in the online shop does not represent a legally binding offer, but a non-binding invitation for the customer to place an order. Errors excepted.

3.2

By clicking the “Order” button at the final step of the ordering process, you place a binding order for the chosen products listed on the order page. The purchase contract is concluded when we accept your order through an order confirmation via e-mail, immediately after receiving your order.

4. Right of Revocation

You are entitled to revoke your contractual declaration in text form (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) within 14 days without giving reasons, or by returning the item, if the item has been already conveyed to you before expiration of the deadline. The period begins upon receipt of these written instructions, however, not before the goods have been received by the recipient (with recurring deliveries of similar items, not prior to the receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not before fulfillment of our information obligations in accordance with Article 246, Paragraph 2 in conjunction with Article 1, Paragraphs 1 and 2 of the Introductory Act to the German Civil Code (EGBGB - Einführungsgesetz zum Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch) as well as our obligations under Article 312e, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1 of the German Civil Code (BGB - Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch) in conjunction with Article 246, Paragraph 3 of the Introductory Act to the German Civil Code (EGBGB - Einführungsgesetz zum Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch). The deadline shall be observed either by timely dispatch of the declaration of revocation or return shipment.

The revocation must be sent to the following address:

Outdoor-Climbing
Klaus und Michael Schädel GbR
Friedrichstr. 2a
74172 Neckarsulm
Fax + 49 (0)7132 9650-60
Email: anfragen@outdoor-climbing.de

Consequences of Revocation

If a cancellation is effective, the services received by either party shall be returned and, where appropriate, any benefit yielded from them (e.g. interest) shall be surrendered. If you are unable to return the service received either partially or entirely, or if you can only do so in a deteriorated condition, you are liable to provide appropriate compensation to us. If the item is in worse condition or used, you must reimburse the value only if the use or worsening is due to the handling of the item that goes beyond checking its characteristics or functions. "Checking the characteristics and functions" means testing and trying out the goods as it is possible and usual in a retail shop. Packaged items shall be returned at our risk. You shall bear the return postage costs from Germany, if the goods delivered correspond to the goods ordered and if the cost of the item being returned does not exceed 40 Euros, or, if the cost for this item is higher and you have not yet yielded the service in return or a contractually agreed partial payment at the time of revocation. In all other cases, the return from Germany within 14 days from the beginning of the revocation period is free of charge. Items that cannot be shipped as a parcel will be collected. Obligations to reimburse payments must be met within 30 days. This period begins for you with the dispatch of your declaration of cancellation or the item, and for us, upon its receipt. The buyer has to bear all the costs when returning goods from abroad, regardless of the order value.

End of Revocation Policy
