Immediate bank transfer (“Sofortüberweisung”)
We also offer immediate bank transfer (“Sofortüberweisung”). With this method, we receive the transfer invoice immediately, which speeds up the entire order process. For this, you only need an account number, a bank sort code, PIN and TAN. Via the Sofort AG secure payment form, which is not accessible to retailers, ‘sofortüberweisung’ carries out a transfer from your online bank account automatically and in real time. The purchase amount is then transferred immediately and directly into the bank account of the retailer. If you choose the immediate bank transfer payment method, a pre-completed form will open at the end of the order process. This includes our bank details. Furthermore, the transfer amount and purpose are already indicated on the form. You must then select the country of your online bank account and enter the bank sort code, then enter the same information used for registering for online banking (account number and PIN). Confirm your order by entering the TAN. You will receive immediate confirmation of the transaction. As a basic principle, every Internet user can use the immediate bank transfer payment method if he/she has an active online bank account with a PIN/TAN system. Please note that the immediate bank transfer payment method is not yet available with some banks. More information about whether your bank uses this service is available at:
There are € 0 of additional charges incurred upon selection of the immediate bank transfer payment method.
6. Retention of Ownership
The goods remain our property until full payment has been made.
If you are an enterprise exercising your industrial or independent professional activity, a legal entity under
public law or a special fund under public law, we retain ownership of the purchased item until the settlement of
all open claims from the business relationship with the customer. The relevant security interests should be
transferred to a third party. You only have the right of retention if your counterclaims have been determined
legally binding, or are undisputed or acknowledged by us. Furthermore, you only have the right of retention if
and insofar as your counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship. Should the customer fall into
arrears with regard to any payment obligations, all outstanding payments are due immediately.
7. Damages in transit
Should goods be delivered with obvious damages caused in transit, please report it to the delivery agent as soon
as possible and contact us without delay.
Failure to make a timely complaint or contact will have no consequences for your legal claims or their
implementation, particularly your statutory warranty rights. However, it is helpful to us when asserting our
claims against the carrier or transport insurance.
8. Warranty, Guarantee
The warranty is in compliance with the legal provisions (6 months after the receipt of goods). In cases of
justifiable complaints regarding defects, either a replacement or improvement is made free of charge, for which a
certain time period is to be granted. If an exchange or improvement does not take place (not possible, too
complicated, unreasonable, delay of a deadline), the customer is entitled to a reduction in price or, for major
defects, a cancellation of the contract (rescission).
Defects are to be disclosed upon delivery or when detected, wherein a failure to disclose this information upon
delivery or detection by the customer does not exert any influence on the warranty claim.
If the purchase represents a commercial transaction for the customer (B2B), he is obligated to examine the goods
a maximum of two weeks following the receipt and to report any defects to us immediately.
Our company is only liable for damages of intent and gross negligence. This does not apply to damages to
individuals or consumer transactions. The occurrence of slight or gross negligence must be proven by the
aggrieved party, unless it relates to consumer business. We exclude all liability for consequential damage and
other property damage or financial damage and claims from third parties against the customer, unless it relates
to consumer business.
As the operator of the web shop named in the legal notice, our company performs the service with great care, but
we are not liable for services made available by or sourced from third parties. The guarantor (the manufacturer/
sometimes also the retailer, if this is also the manufacturer) is responsible for asserting the guarantee and it
complies with their provisions. The legal warranty is not restricted by claims made under the guarantee.

at the telephone number +43 (0) 2734 20540 or by e-mail at email@example.com. Enquiries will generally be

delivery to the low-price standard delivery which we offer), immediately and at the latest within fourteen days
following the day on which we received the notification regarding your cancellation of this contract. For this
reimbursement we will use the same payment method which you used for the original transaction, unless another
method has been expressly agreed upon; you will not be charged additional fees for this reimbursement. We can
refuse the reimbursement until we have received the goods or you are able to prove that you have sent the goods,
whichever is earlier.

days following the day on which you notified us of the cancellation of this contract. The time period is deemed
observed if you send the goods before the period of fourteen days has ended. You shall bear the direct costs of
the return of the goods.
You must only pay for any loss in value of the goods if this diminished value resulting from the handling other
than what is necessary to ascertain the nature, quality and functioning of the goods can be traced back to you.
