If you withdraw from this contract, we must refund all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a type of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the day on which we received notification of your withdrawal from this contract.

You must return or hand over the goods to us without delay and in any case no later than fourteen days from the day on which you notify us of the cancellation of this contract. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the expiry of the period of fourteen days. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods.
You only have to pay for any loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is due to handling of the goods that are not necessary for checking the condition, properties, and functioning of the goods.

**§ 9 WARRANTY**
9.1 If you are a consumer, the warranty is governed by the statutory provisions.
9.2 If you place your order with us as an entrepreneur, the following applies:
9.2.1 Delivered goods must be inspected by the customer immediately after delivery, to the extent feasible in the ordinary course of business. If a defect becomes apparent, immediate notification to us is required. Failure to notify us will result in the goods being deemed approved, unless the defect was not recognizable during the inspection. If such a defect is discovered later, notification must be made immediately after discovery, otherwise, the goods will be deemed approved even for this defect. The customer is not released from the obligation to inspect the goods even in the event of recourse by the entrepreneur pursuant. If, in such cases, the customer does not immediately report the defect asserted by their customer, the goods will also be deemed approved concerning this defect.
9.2.2 In the event of a defect, we are entitled to determine the type of subsequent performance, considering the defect's nature and the customer's justified interests. Subsequent performance is deemed to have failed after the third unsuccessful attempt in the case of these contracts.
9.2.3 In the event of subsequent performance for defects, we are only obliged to bear the required expenses, particularly transport, travel, labor, and material costs, to the extent that these are not increased by taking the item to a place other than the customer's registered office or the commercial branch to which delivery was made
9.2.4 The customer's claims for defects, including claims for damages, are subject to a limitation period of one year. This also does not apply to claims for damages due to injury to life, body, or health or due to a grossly negligent or intentional breach of duty by us or our vicarious agents.
**§ 10 LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES**
10.1 If you are a consumer, we shall be liable for damages in accordance with the statutory provisions.
10.2 If you place your order with us as an entrepreneur, the following shall apply in the event of our contractual liability for damages pursuant to sections 10.2 to 10.7:
10.2.1 If the claims are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by us, our representatives, or our vicarious agents, we shall be liable for damages in accordance with the statutory provisions.
10.2.2 Insofar as we or our representatives or vicarious agents have breached an obligation through slight negligence, the fulfillment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract, the breach of which jeopardizes the achievement of the purpose of the contract, and the observance of which the customer regularly relies on, liability shall be limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
10.2.3 Unless otherwise stipulated in Sections 10.2.1 and 10.2.2, our liability for damages is excluded. The same shall also apply insofar as recourse claims are asserted against us as suppliers pursuant.
10.3 The exclusions and limitations of liability under clause 10.2 shall also apply to other claims, in particular claims in tort or claims for reimbursement of futile expenses instead of performance.
10.4 The exclusions and limitations of liability under clause 10.2 shall not apply to any existing claims pursuant to §§ 1, 4 of the Product Liability Act or due to culpable injury to life, limb, or health. They shall also not apply insofar as we have assumed a guarantee for the quality of our goods or a performance outcome or a procurement risk and the guarantee case has occurred or the procurement risk has materialized.
10.5 Unless the limitation of liability pursuant to section 10.2 applies in the case of claims arising from manufacturer's liability pursuant, our liability shall be limited to the compensation paid by the insurance company. Insofar as this does not occur or does not occur in full, we shall be liable up to the amount of the sum insured. This clause shall not apply in the event of culpable injury to life, limb, or health.
10.6 Insofar as our liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of our partners, employees, workers, staff, representatives, and vicarious agents.
10.7 A reversal of the burden of proof is not associated with the above provisions.
