I. Special provisions for mail order business
1. 14-day cancellation right for consumers
The following terms on the cancellation right in Number 1 of these T&Cs apply only to contracts entered into with a consumer (in Germany these are, pursuant to the statutory provisions of Section 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB), natural persons who enter into a legal transaction for purposes that predominantly are outside his trade, business or profession. In foreign countries the term may also cover certain legal entities worthy of protection. When the cancellation right is exercised by consumers in EU member states including Germany, we bear the return costs even in cases in which we could charge them to the consumer according to the legal provisions. For consumers domiciled in a country outside of the European Union, the law of their country of residence shall apply for the statutory cancellation right. Irrespective of the question whether these countries provide a cancellation right or not, we grant these consumers a contractual cancellation right with the same conditions as under German law. However, we reserve in the case of cancellation the right to reimburse the return costs but not the sending costs. The organisation of such a return will be agreed upon at the consumer’s request. This is not a must for exercising your cancellation right but it will enhance the handling.
1.1 Exemptions from the cancellation right
There are statutory exemptions from the cancellation right (Section 312g BGB) and we reserve the right to refer to the following provisions: There is no cancellation right for the delivery of goods that are not ready-made but individually manufactured according to the consumer’s choice or tailor-made for its personal needs.
The cancellation right may expire prematurely when ordered goods were mixed with other goods after delivery and cannot be separated from them due to their characteristics, and for the delivery of sound and video recordings or computer software in a sealed package when the sealing was removed after delivery.
Offers without cancellation right will be marked.
1.1. Orders with Audiovisual Art s.r.l. include a 14-day cancellation right whether ordered by telephone or via our online shop. We refer to the following cancellation policy for the requirements and consequences of your statutory cancellation right (for consumers in Germany and other EU states: for other countries see Number 1.1). It provides a cancellation period of 14 days. No additional contractual rights are granted. In particular, the statutory cancellation right is not granted to commercial resellers in the cancellation policy.
1.2. Cancellation policy for all contracts
You have the right to revoke this contract within fourteen days without giving reasons.
The cancellation period is fourteen days from the date on which you or a third party appointed by you who is not the forwarder takes possession of the goods. In order to exercise your cancellation right, you have to inform us.

in a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email) of your decision to cancel this contract. You may use the enclosed sample cancellation form but this is not a must. To safeguard the cancellation period, it is sufficient to send the notice that you exercise the cancellation right before expiry of the cancellation period.
Consequences of the cancellation:
If you cancel the contract, we must immediately refund all the payments we received from you, including the delivery costs (except the additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a different type of delivery than the inexpensive standard delivery offered by us) within fourteen days from the date on which we received the notice cancelling this contract. For this repayment we use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless a different arrangement has been specifically agreed; under no circumstances will you be charged for this reimbursement.
We will bear the costs of returning the goods. The following applies for all delivery countries for goods that cannot be returned by post: We will collect the goods and bear the return costs. Please contact us to clarify the return procedure for individual cases.

1.3. The delivery period is extended as appropriate if strikes or lock-outs or other circumstances occur for which we bear no responsibility that adversely affect the delivery, in particular deliveries delayed due to force majeure. We will immediately inform the customer about the beginning and end of such impediments.

2.3. The warranty period for products in serial production is 10 years after delivery. The warranty period for customised products is 20 years.

In particular, optical alterations of surfaces are after the second year no longer covered by the warranty.
2.4. Your receipt is the warranty evidence.
2.5. The guarantee applies to all parts and work costs upon delivery. It includes and is restricted to the free repair or exchange of defective parts in the case of a material defect in the goods (e.g. material or manufacturing defects). Audiovisual Art’s also covers the sending and return costs of the affected product ex curbstone in the event of justified guarantee claims provided that the goods are within the European Union and the shipment has been agreed with us before. Further guarantees may be given as goodwill by discretion of Audiovisual Art. During the guarantee period it is assumed that the material defect already existed at the time of risk transfer. Replaced parts pass over into Audiovisual Art’s ownership. Guarantees will neither cause an extension of the warranty period nor institute a new warranty period.

The approval or execution of guarantees is no recognition of a performance obligation under the statutory warranty right.
2.6. A warranty claim does not apply for:

• improper operation/use of the loudspeakers (e.g. improper assembly).
2.7. In a warranty case, the defective device shall be packed, if possible, into the original box together with a copy of the receipt and a meaningful description of the defect and sent to us (address shown above in the T&Cs).
