  2. 11.2. Consequences of revocation

  3. If you withdraw from this contract, we must repay you all payments that we have received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of the 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 from the day on which we received the notification of your withdrawal from this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will you be charged for this repayment. We may refuse repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is the earlier. You must return or hand over the goods to us or to one of our branches 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 end of the period of fourteen days.

  4. 11.3.

  5. 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 is not necessary for checking the condition, properties and functioning of the goods. Please avoid damage and contamination. If possible, please return the goods to us in the original packaging with all accessories and with all packaging components. If necessary, use protective outer packaging. If you no longer have the original packaging, please provide adequate protection against transport damage with suitable packaging in order to avoid claims for damages due to defective packaging.



§ 12 Warranty for purchases of goods
  1. 12.1.

  2. Unless expressly agreed otherwise, your warranty claims shall be governed by the statutory provisions of the law on sales (§§ 433 ff. BGB).

  3. 12.2.

  4. If you are a consumer within the meaning of § 13 BGB (German Civil Code), the limitation period for warranty claims for used goods is - in deviation from the statutory provisions - one year. This limitation does not apply to claims based on damages resulting from injury to life, limb or health or from the breach of an essential contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which makes the proper performance of the contract possible in the first place and on the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely (cardinal obligation) as well as to claims based on other damages which are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the user or his vicarious agents. The product illustrations may differ from the appearance of the delivered products.

  5. 12.3.

  6. If the goods are defective, we shall provide subsequent performance within a reasonable period of time, i.e. either replacement delivery or rectification of the defects. The place of performance for subsequent performance is our registered office. If the supplementary performance chosen by you is only possible at disproportionate expense, we shall be entitled to provide supplementary performance in the other form. The expenses required for the subsequent performance shall be borne by us. If a reasonable period of time for subsequent performance has elapsed without result, you shall have the right, at your option, to rescind the purchase contract or reduce the purchase price. If you decide to cancel the purchase contract, the services received by both parties must be returned and any benefits derived must be surrendered. If you are unable to return the goods received in whole or in part or only in a deteriorated condition, you may have to compensate us for the loss in value. However, the deterioration caused by the intended use shall not be taken into account. Claims for defects become statute-barred 2 years after the date of delivery of the goods.

  7. 12.4.

  8. The consumer's statutory rights under the warranty/liability for defects apply. Possible additional guarantees provided by the manufacturer improve the legal rights. In the event of a warranty claim, you can contact the manufacturer directly or the company Diagen Diamond with its entire branch network. In all other respects, the statutory provisions apply to the warranty.



§ 13 Limitations of liability

  1. We shall be liable without limitation for intent and gross negligence as well as in accordance with the Product Liability Act. We shall be liable for slight negligence in the event of damage resulting from injury to life, body and health of persons. In all other respects, the following limited liability shall apply: In the event of slight negligence, we shall only be liable in the event of a breach of a material contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract and on the observance of which you may regularly rely (cardinal obligation). The liability for slight negligence is limited to the amount of the damages foreseeable at the time of the conclusion of the contract, the occurrence of which must typically be expected. This limitation of liability also applies in favour of our vicarious agents.



§ 14 Data protection

  1. In connection with the initiation, conclusion, processing and reversal of a purchase contract on the basis of these GTC, data is collected, stored and processed by the provider.

During the visit to the provider's online shop, anonymised data that do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about personal data and do not intend to do so, in particular IP address, date, time, browser type, operating system and pages visited, are logged. At the request of the customer, personal data will be deleted, corrected or blocked within the framework of the legal provisions. Free information about all personal data of the customer is possible.
