Standard terms of business of Montredo GmbH

Montredo GmbH terms of sale

Version: 15 January 2013

1. Scope
The following terms of sale (‘Terms’) shall apply to the sale of products via the Online-Shop (‘Shop’) operated by Montredo GmbH (registered office: Friedrichstr. 122/123, D-10117, referred to below as ‘Montredo’ or ‘we’). 

In order to purchase a product in the Shop it is necessary for you to agree to the Terms. Please read through them carefully. If you do not agree to any of these Terms, you must not place any orders. 

2. Conclusion of the contract
If you are under 18 years old, you need the consent of your legal representative in order to conclude a contract with Montredo.

You may place an order to purchase goods advertised for sale on this site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you wish to purchase. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you place your order by clicking the “Pay now” button on the checkout page. If you submit an order for goods via this site by clicking the ‘Pay now’ button, your order is an offer to us to buy the goods you have ordered on this site.

The offers made in our Shop are not binding. By placing an order in the Shop, you make a binding offer to conclude a purchase agreement. After you place an order, we will automatically send you an email in which we confirm the receipt of your order (‘Order Acknowledgement’). This Order Acknowledgement does not constitute the acceptance of your offer but is merely intended to inform you that we have received your order. It also includes detailed information in relation to your order and an order number, which you should state if you have any further questions about your order. 

Your contract with Montredo only comes into existence if, within a maximum of 5 days after receipt of your offer, we send you a further email with an Order Confirmation in relation to the product which you have ordered (‘Order Confirmation’). If an order includes several products, the contract shall only come into existence in relation to the products identified in the Order Confirmation. The contract in relation to the additional products shall only become effective when we send you an Order Confirmation in relation to these as well. 

3. Costs of returns; right to cancel
If you order from Montredo as a consumer within the meaning of Paragraph 13 of the BGB (the German Civil Code) (that is as a natural person who enters into a legal transaction for a purpose that is outside his trade, business or profession), in addition to the other provisions of the Terms, the provisions under this heading apply. 

Notice of your right to cancel

You are entitled to cancel your order within 30 days without giving any reason. The cancellation period shall commence after you have received the item(s)

The cancellation must be addressed to

Montredo GmbH
Friedrichstr. 122/123
D-10117 Berlin
e-Mail: widerruf@montredo.com
+49 (0)30 2888 6470,

via written notice (e-Mail or physical mail) and shall explicitly mention your decision to cancel your order. You may use the downloadable form but this shall not be mandatory.

To cancel in due course it shall be sufficient to indicate the cancellation prior to expiration of the notice period.

Consequence of cancellation

In the event of an effective cancellation, all payments (including delivery cost) must be returned to you instantly but not later than 14 days after Montredo has received the cancellation request. The payment will be refunded via the same payment method that had been used by you in the original purchase if not explicitly agreed otherwise with you. Montredo will not charge any cost associated with refunding the money. 

We will organize the item pick up. Montredo assumes the shipping cost for the return. You only have to compensate us for the deterioration of the goods or for benefits obtained if the benefits obtained or the deterioration of the goods are attributable to handling the goods in a manner which goes beyond testing their qualities and functioning. ‘Testing their qualities and functioning‘ shall be understood to mean testing and trying out the relevant goods in a manner which is possible and usual, for example, in a physical store.

End of notice of your right to cancel 

4. Prices and taxes
The prices stated on Montredo’s websites do not include either shipping costs or handling fees. You can obtain information on shipping costs and handling fees here. You are notified of these costs before you place your order.

8. Limitation of liability
Montredo’s liability for damages as a result of ordinary negligence, for whatever legal reason, shall be limited as follows: (i) Montredo shall be liable to an extent limited in amount to the foreseeable loss or damage, which is typical for this type of contract in the event of breach of material duties arising from the relationship under the law of obligations (namely Montredo’s duties which need to be fulfilled in order to make the proper performance of the contract possible at all and which the contractual partner therefore may normally rely on being complied with), which is caused by Montredo, a vicarious agent or a legal representative of Montredo; (ii) Montredo shall not otherwise be liable for ordinary negligence (except in the cases listed in the following paragraph). 

The above limitations on liability shall not apply: (i) where Montredo, its vicarious agent or a legal representative of Montredo causes fatal injury, personal injury or harm to health; (ii) in the event of intentional conduct or gross negligence by Montredo, a vicarious agent or a legal representative of Montredo; (iii) in the event of a guarantee being given as to the characteristics of the goods or (iv) in the event of fraudulently concealed defects. In these cases, Montredo’s liability shall not be limited. Liability under the Produkthaftungsgesetz (Law on product liability) shall not be affected by this. 

9. Information pursuant to the Batteriegesetz (Law on batteries)
In some cases products shipped by us contain batteries. In such cases, we are obliged to draw the following information to your attention:

Batteries may not be thrown out in the household waste. After using them, you can return batteries free of charge to the point of sale, to retailers or to a local authority waste collection point. As distributor, our obligation to take back batteries shall be limited to those of the type which we carry or have carried in our range. As end user you are under a statutory obligation to return old batteries. Batteries containing pollutants are marked with a symbol, consisting of a dustbin with a line through it and the chemical name Cd, Hg or Pb. Cd stands for Cadmium, Pb for lead and Hg for mercury. 

10. Data protection
Montredo’s privacy statement explains how we handle your personal data and protect it if you buy products via Montredo’s websites. You can find the privacy statement here.

11. Applicable law and place of jurisdiction

Where products are ordered by business people, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with these Terms shall be Berlin. In other cases, the statutory rules on the place of jurisdiction shall apply to all disputes arising from or in connection with these Terms. 

12. Changes to these Terms; severability
The Terms which are valid at the time of the purchase of a product shall apply to the corresponding order and the corresponding product. Montredo reserves the right to change these Terms. Such changes shall not have retrospective effect and shall apply exclusively to future orders. 

If a provision in these Terms is or becomes wholly or partially void, ineffective, impracticable or unenforceable, the effectiveness and the enforceability of the other provisions of these Terms shall not be affected.
