"The term "right of withdrawal" used in Austria corresponds to the term "right of cancellation" used in Germany and used in the Consumer Rights Directive.

As a consumer, you are entitled to a right of withdrawal in accordance with the instructions set out in the Annex. According to Section 1 para 1 KSchG, a consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction that is not part of the operation of his or her business.

If applicable, you will find such guarantees separately on the respective product pages.

12. Liability and limitation of liability

12.1 We are without limitation liable for intent and gross negligence.

12.2 We are liable for the negligent breach of obligations, whose fulfilment is essential to enable the ordinary implementation of the contract, whose breach jeopardizes the achievement of the purpose of the contract and on whose compliance you as a customer may rely on regularly (material duty). In this case, we are only liable for the foreseeable, typical contractual damage. We shall not be liable for the slightly negligent breach of obligations other than those specified in the preceding sentences.

12.3 The abovementioned exclusions of liability do not apply in case of damage of life, body and health or in the case of malicious non-disclosure of a fault. The liability pursuant to the product liability law remains unaffected.

12.4 Based on the current state of art, data communication via internet cannot be guaranteed to be error free and/or available at any time. We are not liable for constant and continuous availability of our online trading system.

12.5 We shall only be liable for our own content in the online shop.
