General Terms and Conditions
1.1 The following General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively to the commercial relationship between Premium 24 GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “Premium 24” or “we”) and the customer as they apply at the time of the order. We therefore politely advise you to read the General Terms and Conditions carefully before placing an order. We do not accept any diverging terms and conditions from the customer unless we have agreed to their validity in writing. We hereby object to the inclusion of the customer’s own terms and conditions, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 The items in our online shop www.olafbenz.com are targeted exclusively towards consumers. Consumer in the sense of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that predominantly are outside his trade, business or profession. Entrepreneurs are not entitled to order.

1.4 Our products are only sold for private use in quantities suitable for personal use.
2. Conclusion of contract

2.2 The confirmation of receipt of the order is sent by automated email immediately after sending the order and does not constitute a declaration of acceptance of the contract.

Instructions on withdrawal
Right of withdrawal
After conclusion of a contract with us, you as a consumer have the right to withdraw from it without giving any reason within the statutory withdrawal deadline.
The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the good, or in the case of multiple goods delivered separately after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the last good.
To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.
In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us, Premium 24 GmbH, Stöhrstraße 19, 96317 Kronach, Germany, email@example.com, phone +49 (0) 9261-9628382, fax +49 (0) 9261-9628381 of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, phone or email). You may use our model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.
A version of the model withdrawal form is available for download here (https://www.olafbenz.com/en/withdrawal-form/).
Effects of withdrawal
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery to the original place of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.
You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods for returns from Germany, unless you use the offered return form, which we will send to you in PDF format to print out as soon as you inform our customer service about your withdrawal (phone: +49 (0) 9261/962838-2, fax: +49 (0) 9261/962838-1 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org). In case of returns from abroad you will have to bear the direct cost for returning the goods.
You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
End of the instructions on withdrawal
10. Voluntary returns right
10.1 In addition to the statutory right of withdrawal (see point 9), we grant you a voluntary right of return for all orders in our online shop within 30 days of receipt of the goods. This means that you can also withdraw from the contract after the 14-day withdrawal period has expired, provided you return the goods to us within 30 days of their receipt. For returns from Germany you will have to bear the direct costs of the return unless you use the offered return form, which we will send to you in PDF format to print out as soon as you inform our customer service about the exercise of your voluntary right of return (phone: +49 (0) 9261/962838-2, fax: +49 (0) 9261/962838-1 or email: email@example.com). For returns from abroad, you will have to bear the direct costs for returning the goods.
10.2 The exercise of the voluntary right of return shall only apply to unworn, unwashed and defect-free products, i.e. free from signs of use of any kind and in undamaged original packaging from which the labels have not been removed. If such a loss of value is caused by washing, wearing, removal or damage to the original packaging or by other signs of use, you are not entitled to the voluntary right of return, so that the goods will be returned to the customer without a refund of the purchase price.
10.3 The timely dispatch of the goods is sufficient to meet the deadline. The return shipment has to be sent to: Premium 24 GmbH, Stöhrstrasse 19, 96317 Kronach, Germany, firstname.lastname@example.org.
10.4 Once the returned goods have been checked, you will be informed of your right to a refund of any payments you may have already made. The refund will be made immediately, at the latest within 14 days from the date we received the goods. For the refund we will use the same means of payment that you used for the initial transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you.
10.5 The contractually granted voluntary return guarantee does not affect your statutory rights and claims. During the statutory withdrawal period, only the statutory rules apply and your statutory right of withdrawal is not affected by the voluntary right of return. Likewise, you remain your statutory warranty rights without any limitation.
10.6 If you have any questions about your voluntary right of return, you can contact us via our contact form (https://www.olafbenz.com/en/contact/) or call our customer service on +49 (0) 9261/962 838-2.
11. Liability for defects (warranty)
11.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
11.2 The customer is kindly requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damages to the deliverer and to inform the seller as soon as possible. If the customer does not comply with this, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects. However, you help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance company.
12.1 We exclude our liability for slightly negligent breaches of duty, provided that these do not concern essential contractual obligations, damages from injury to life, body or health or guarantees or claims under the Product Liability Act are affected. An essential contractual obligation in this sense is such an obligation whose fulfilment enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and whose observance the contractual partner can and may rely upon. Liability for intent and gross negligence remains unaffected.
12.2 The above limitations of liability also apply to the legal representatives and vicarious agents of Premium 24.
13. Data protection
The protection of your personal data is very important to us. You can find the data protection policy here (https://www.olafbenz.com/en/data-protection/). All personal data that you provide us with will be processed in accordance with this data protection policy.
14. Final provisions
14.1 Should any provision of these General Terms and Conditions be invalid, the rest of the contract remains valid. Instead of the invalid provision, the relevant statutory provisions shall apply.
14.2 All legal disputes arising out or in connection with the sales contract shall be governed exclusively by German law to the exclusion of the UN Sales Convention. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
14.3 The European Commission provides a platform for the out-of-court resolution of disputes (ODR platform), which can be viewed under http://ec.europa.eu/odr. We are not willing to enter into dispute resolution proceedings before the consumer arbitration board.
14.4 If you have any questions regarding the General Terms and Conditions, you can contact us by using our contact form on our website.
