Customers within the meaning of the present General Terms and Conditions are consumers as well as entrepreneurs. A customer is any individual person who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose that can be seen as not belonging to his commercial or his independent occupational operation.

Consequences of Revocation
In case of a valid revocation, all mutually received products as well as emoluments taken (e.g., interest), if applicable, are to be returned by either side.
End of revocation instruction
Exclusion of Revocation:
The right of revocation does not apply to distance selling contracts for the delivery of magazines (excepting subscriptions).
4) Cost Agreement
If customers make use of their right of revocation, they are obliged to bear the regular costs of the return shipment, if the merchandise delivered corresponds to the merchandise ordered, and if the price of the merchandise to be sent back does not exceed an amount of 40 euros or, where the price is higher, if they have at the date of revocation not yet rendered consideration or made a partial payment as agreed upon by contract. In all other cases, the return shipment for customers is free of charge.
5) Packaging, Shipment, Delivery
Packaging and shipment are at customer’s expense. Customers can find more information on this subject in our current delivery and shipment conditions. The merchandise is delivered from stock to the shipping address as provided by the customer. We strive for prompt delivery. In case of delays in delivery, we will inform the customer immediately by email or telephone. If the merchandise ordered is not available, we reserve the right not to deliver. Payments already made are immediately refunded in this case. Declarations regarding the period of delivery are without obligation, unless, by way of exception, the delivery date has been confirmed as binding.
6) Due Date, Payment, and Default
The purchase price is due within seven days after ordering, without any deduction of discount. The customer can pay the purchase price by bank transfer, PayPal or direct debit. After the due date has expired ineffectively, the customer will be in default (of payment), without further explanation by w. nostheide verlag gmbh.
7) Offset and Withholding
The customer has the right to offset or withhold only if his claims have been legally recognized or accepted by w. nostheide verlag gmbh.
The prices at the time of the order apply. All prices are final prices in EUR and include the statutory value-added tax. For transnational deliveries, however, further taxes (e. g., in the case of an intra-community acquisition) and/or other charges (e. g., customs duties) can incur for the customer in individual cases.
9) Retention of Title
w. nostheide verlag gmbh retains title to the merchandise delivered until the purchase price has been fully paid.
10) Warranty for Defects and Liability
In case of a noticeable deficiency in material, production or transport, customers have to give notice promptly, at latest within two weeks after the merchandise has been delivered. During this period, there is, firstly, the possibility of replacement at no charge, or amendment (repair) at no charge. If this does not remedy the defects, customers are entitled, at their option, to rescind the purchase (redhibition) or to reduce the purchase price (abatement).
11) Data Privacy
Personal data of the customer are collected only within the scope of the statutory provisions of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG; German Data Protection Act) and of the Teledienstedatenschutzgesetz (TDDSG; Tele Services Data Protection Act). w. nostheide verlag gmbh uses the data with respect to business relations with the customer.
12) Applicable Law and Place of Jurisdiction
The relations between the contracting parties conform to the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. With regard to consumers, this choice of law applies only insofar as the protection provided is not revoked by mandatory legal regulations in that state in which the customer has his primary residence. The contractual language is German. The regulations of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) are not applicable.
13) Severability Clause
If any of these provisions should be invalid, this does not affect the effectiveness of the remaining provisions. The invalid provision will be replaced by a legally permissible provision that is closest in meaning to the previous one in economic terms.
