3. Offers and conclusion of contract
3.1 The presentation of the goods in the online shop does not constitute a legally binding offer but rather is a non-binding online catalogue. Subject to errors.
3.2 By clicking the [Place order] button you place a binding order for the goods in the shopping basket. The confirmation of the receipt of an order is implemented automatically together with the acceptance of the order immediately after it is placed through an automated email. This email confirmation represents the concluding of the purchase contract.
4. Right of withdrawal for consumer
Right of withdrawal
You are entitled to withdraw your contractual agreement within 14 days, without providing grounds for doing so, in written form (e.g. letter, fax, email) or - if the goods have been supplied to you within this 14-day period - by returning the goods. The period commences upon receipt of this instruction in written form, although not prior to the goods being received by the recipient (in the case of recurrent deliveries of identical goods, not prior to receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not prior to us fulfilling our information obligations per article 246, § 2 in conjunction with § 1 sections 1 and 2 of the EGBGB. The withdrawal period is honoured if the withdrawal notification or the goods themselves are sent back within the period. The cancellation should be directed to:
Dharma Works GmbH
Consequences of withdrawal
In the event of an effective withdrawal both sides are required to return any goods or monies received by them as well as any benefits thereof (e.g. interest). If you are unable to return or surrender the goods as well as any benefits (e.g. user benefits) to us in whole or part, or if the condition of these is impaired, then you will be required to compensate us for this where applicable. For the impairment of the goods you must only provide compensation, insofar as the impairment can be traced back to handling of the goods that exceeds the testing of the characteristics and the functionality. The testing and checking of the goods in question to the extent that would be normal and possible in a shop is what is meant by "testing of the characteristics and the functionality". Goods that can be packaged for shipping are to be sent back at our risk and expense. You must bear the regular costs of return shipping if the delivered merchandise corresponds to the merchandise ordered and if the price for the return shipping does not exceed 40 Euro or if the price for the merchandise was higher at the point at which the sale was revoked by you and you have not provided the return service or the contractually agreed partial payment. In all other cases, return shipping shall be free of charge for you. Goods that cannot be packaged for shipping shall be collected from you. The obligations applicable in the event of a payment refund must be fulfilled within 30 days. The deadline begins for you when you send your revocation declaration or ship the merchandise. It begins for us with the receipt of the merchandise.
End of the cancellation instructions
