§ 3 Cancellation terms and conditions

 

You can revoke your contractual declaration in text form (e.g., letter, fax, e-mail) within two weeks without giving information about reasons, or - if the article has been handed over to you before the time-limit expires - by returning the article.

The time-limit begins after receiving this advice in text form but not before the goods have been received by the recipient (not before the first partial delivery has been received, in the case that such goods are delivered regularly) and also not before fulfilment of our informational duties according to article 312c, clause 2 of the German Civil Code (BGB) in connection with article 1, clauses 1, 2 and 4 of the BGB´s informational rules, as well as our duties according to article 312e, clause 1, line 1 of the BGB in connection with article 3 of the BGB´s informational rules. The timely despatch of the revocation or the article suffices as complying with the time-limit for revocation. The revocation must be sent to:

Beco Technic GmbH
Hermsdorfer Str. 5
D-21502 Geesthacht.

Fax: (+ +49) 4152809694
E-mail : This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Consequences of the revocation
The services that are received by both sides must be given back and any exploited benefits (e.g., interest) must be returned, in the case of an effective revocation. If you cannot give back the received service entirely or partially, or only give it back in a worsened condition, then you must pay compensation of the value in this respect if necessary. This rule does not apply if the worsening of the article is exclusively attributable to its inspection - as would have been possible for you to cause it in the retail business for example - in the case that articles are handed over for use.

Otherwise, you can avoid the duty to pay compensation of the value for worsening that has occurred through using the article as directed, by you using the article as if it was not your property and by refraining from everything which affects its value adversely.

Articles that are suitable for despatch in parcels must be returned at your own risk. You have to bear the cost of the return shipment if the delivered goods correspond to those ordered and if the price of the article to be returned does not exceed an amount of € 40, or if the quid pro quo or a contractually agreed part-payment has not been provided yet at the point in time of the recall in the case that the article has a higher price. Otherwise, the return shipment is free of charge for you. Articles that are unsuitable for despatch will be collected from you.

Obligations for reimbursing payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The time-limit begins for you when sending your declaration of recall or the article, or it begins for us when the article is received.

End of the advice about recall.


§ 4 Agreement about bearing costs

If you use your right of recall, then you have to bear the regular cost of the return shipment if the delivered goods correspond to those ordered and if the price of the article to be returned does not exceed € 40, or if the quid pro quo or a contractually agreed part-payment has not been provided yet at the point in time of the recall in the case that the article has a higher price. Otherwise, the return shipment is free of charge for you.

§ 5 Delivery of the goods

  • Shipping costs and handling fee incl. shipping insurance domestically:
    EUR 11,50 per consignment

  • Shipping costs and handling fee incl. shipping insurance within the EU:
    EUR 24,50 per consignment

If not agreed otherwise, delivery shall take place by UPS (United Parcel Service). Handling fees and possible import duties shall be borne by the recipient.

(2) Beco Technic GmbH shall be entitled to carry out partial deliveries to the address specified in the order, if this is reasonable for you on the basis of a consideration of your and our interests. For partial deliveries, Beco Technic GmbH shall, of course, bear the resulting additional shipping costs. The shipping of partial deliveries shall take place at our risk. With the receipt of each partial delivery, the risk for the delivered items shall be transferred to you. If we are in default with outstanding partial services or outstanding partial services are not possible for us, you shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract as a whole. 

(3) The delivery period within Europe is 2 - 3 days.

(4) If an advance payment type is selected for an order, shipping shall take place after receipt of your payment.

(5) The delivery of the goods on a date requested by you is possible. For this, the order must be received three business days prior to the required date. If the required date is on a Saturday, delivery shall take place for an extra price. Deliveries on Sundays and holidays are not possible.

(6) If an item should not be deliverable, we will notify you on the invoice or you will receive a written notification. If possible, we will provide you with the new delivery time. If you should not accept the specified delivery time, you can cancel your order.

§ 6 Payment, maturity, reservation of ownership


(1) The purchase price shall fall due in advance of product dispatch less 3% cash discount, upon delivery less 3% cash discount or after receipt of the goods within 8 days net. No C.O.D. fees shall be incurred when shipped with UPS (United Parcel Service). With payment in advance, you will receive an invoice copy beforehand and delivery shall take place after the funds are received on our bank account.

(2) However, Beco Technic GmbH shall have the right to demand a different payment type from you than selected or previously agreed, if the creditworthiness check gives rise to this, in the opinion of Beco Technic GmbH. Beco Technic GmbH shall notify you of this after receipt of the order. For the purpose of the creditworthiness check, Beco Technic GmbH shall exchange data, such as your name, address and date of birth with institutions for the creditworthiness check.

(3) From your 2nd order, an individual payment agreement can be made. If you should enter into default with an outstanding payment target, Beco Technic GmbH shall have the right to charge default interest of 4.5% above with current base interest rate announced by the European Central Bank, unless you prove that a lower loss has been incurred.

(4) The delivered goods shall remain the property of Beco Technic GmbH until they have been paid in full.

§ 7 Warranty

(1) The product images can deviate from the appearance of the delivered products, particularly regarding colour and size. In particular, after product range changes by manufacturers, changes can take place in terms of appearance and in the product components. Defect claims shall not exist, to the extent that the changes are reasonable for the customer.

(2) If the goods are afflicted with defects, we shall ensure supplementary performance, i.e. either replacement deliver or rectification of defects, within an appropriate period of time. If the supplementary performance chosen by you is only possible at a disproportionate cost, we shall be entitled to carry out supplementary performance in another form. The necessary costs for supplementary performance shall be borne by us, or if an adequate grace period set for supplementary performance has expired without any result, at your option, you shall have the right to unwinding of the purchase contract or reduction of the purchase price.

(3) If you should decide to unwind the purchase contract, the services received by both parties must be returned and possibly gained benefits released.  If you cannot fully or partially return the received service to us, or only in a deteriorated condition, you must provide the equivalent value as compensation. However, deterioration occurring as a result of proper use remains disregarded.

(4) Compensation claims expire within 2 years from the time of the goods being delivered.

§ 8 Compensation

Compensation due to infringement of a duty from the contractual relationship must be paid under the legal conditions, however only in the case of intent or gross negligence, unless significant contractual obligations are involved.
