General Terms and Conditions of Business

 

Status: 15th of March 2021

1. Scope of application

 

1.1 The following General Terms and Conditions in the version valid at the time of the order shall apply exclusively to the business relationship between MeiCord and the customer. We do not recognise any terms and conditions of purchase of the customer that conflict with or deviate from our General Terms and Conditions of Business, even if we execute the order without objection in the knowledge of deviating terms and conditions. Current version: Internet www.meicord.de or on request. Product names and logos are the property of the manufacturer and may not be used without permission. Deviating conditions of the purchaser are not recognised.

 

1.2 Our information and offers with regard to product descriptions are subject to change. Misprints and errors excepted. In view of the continuous technical development and improvement of the products, we reserve the right to make changes in design and execution.

 

2 Conclusion of contract 2.1

The contract is concluded by MeiCord's acceptance of the customer's order. The confirmation takes place through the execution of the delivery of the order. In the case of orders placed via our online shop, the customer will receive a confirmation of receipt of the electronically placed order.

3. Right of revocation/cancellation instruction

 

3.1 You may revoke your contractual declaration in writing (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) within 14 days without stating reasons. The period begins after receipt of these instructions in text form, but not before receipt of the goods by the recipient (in the case of recurring deliveries of similar goods, not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not before fulfilment of our duties to provide information pursuant to Article 246, Paragraph 2 in conjunction with Paragraph 1, Paragraphs 1 and 2 EGBGB (Introductory Act to the German Civil Code) as well as our duties pursuant to Paragraph 312g, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246, Paragraph 3 EGBGB. The timely dispatch of the revocation is sufficient to comply with the revocation period. The revocation is to be sent to:

 

MeiCord, Egerstraße 7A, 26127 Oldenburg,
e-mail: info(at)meicord.de.

 

3.2 In the event of an effective revocation, the services received by both parties shall be returned and any benefits derived (e.g. interest) shall be surrendered. If you are unable to return or surrender the received performance and benefits (e.g. benefits of use), or are only able to do so in part or in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us for the loss of value. You only have to pay compensation for the deterioration of the goods and for benefits derived if the benefits or the deterioration is due to handling of the goods that goes beyond the examination of the characteristics and the mode of operation. By "testing the properties and functionality" we mean testing and trying out the respective goods, as is possible and customary in a shop, for example. Goods that can be sent by parcel post are to be returned at our risk. The seller shall bear the costs of the return shipment, but not more than the shipping costs paid by the recipient at the time of purchase. Obligations to refund payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins for you with the dispatch of your notice of cancellation or the goods, for us with their receipt.

 

4 Prices

 

4.1 The prices at the time of the order shall apply to the delivery. The prices shown in the catalogue or in the online shop include the statutory VAT. In the event of an increase in VAT, MeiCord is obliged to charge the then valid VAT rate.

 

4.2 In addition to the individual net price/total net price, the invoices will list the other ancillary costs (packaging/shipping). We ship packages up to a weight of 10 kg. A flat shipping fee of € 5.50 will be charged for this. If the order exceeds 10 kg, we will contact you personally.

 

4.3 You can find the current prices at www.meicord.de.

5 Terms of payment

 

5.1 Advance payment, invoice We only deliver to end consumers by advance payment. The customer undertakes to pay the invoice amount within 14 days of receipt of the goods. For dealers, the provisions according to the dealer guidelines apply.

 

5.2 Default of payment If you are in default with your payments, we reserve the right to charge you default interest of 8% on the value of the goods. Furthermore, we are entitled to refuse all deliveries then still outstanding. We shall not be liable for any damages resulting from such non-delivery. 6. Ability to deliver/replacement delivery/partial delivery

 

6.1 Delivery shall be made by sending the articles to the address notified by the buyer, subject to correct and timely delivery and that we are not responsible for the lack of availability. Compensation for damages, even in the case of late and incomplete delivery, is excluded, unless gross negligence is involved. In the event of non-availability of the goods, we will notify you immediately and announce the approximate delivery date. If a product is no longer available or cannot be delivered for legal reasons, MeiCord is entitled to withdraw from the contract.

 

6.2 Partial deliveries are independent deliveries. The customer is not entitled to reject these.

 

6.3 The costs for shipping and packaging are to be borne by the customer, subject to change. For deliveries abroad, unless otherwise stated, the price for packaging and shipping shall be calculated separately according to weight. If the buyer requests a special type of shipment which incurs higher costs, he shall also bear these additional costs. In the case of subsequent deliveries due to delivery problems, the buyer shall only be charged once for shipping and packaging.

 

6.4 Transport damage: In the event of visible transport damage, it is possible to refuse acceptance of the consignment. However, if the customer only notices the damage after receipt or if there is concealed transport damage (packaging OK/contents defective), please contact the post office/agency responsible for you within 3 working days of receipt so that a record of the damaged consignment can be drawn up. Please then provide us with the completed form together with the damaged goods so that a replacement delivery can be made.

8.4 Insofar as there is a defect in the item for which we are responsible, the customer may, in accordance with section 439 of the German Civil Code, at his discretion demand the rectification of the defect or demand the delivery of an item free of defects. MeiCord can refuse the chosen type of supplementary performance if this is only possible at disproportionate cost.
