6. Payment

Payment for items must be made in accordance with the procedure described on this information page.

7. Right to revoke

You have the right to withdraw from the purchase agreement within a period of 14 days without stating your reasons.

The withdrawal period expires 14 days after the day on which you – or a third party designated by you who is not the carrier – take physical possession of your item(s).

To exercise your right to revoke, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from the purchase agreement by sending an unambiguous statement by e-mail. You can, but are not obliged to, use our template cancellation form for this. To comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient to send your communication informing us of your decision to exercise your right to revoke before the withdrawal period has expired.

Consequences of revocation
If you revoke the agreement, all payments you have made up to that point, including delivery costs, will be refunded immediately and in any case no later than 14 days after we have been informed of your decision to revoke the agreement. All refunds will be made using the same method of payment as the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise; in any case, you will not be charged for such reimbursement.

You must return or hand over the goods to us without delay and no later than 14 days after the day on which you informed us of your wish to revoke the agreement. You are on time if you send the goods back to us before the period of 14 days has expired.

The cost of returning the goods to us is at your own expense.

You are only liable for a depreciation in value of the goods resulting from use of the goods that goes beyond that which is necessary to establish the nature, the characteristics and the functioning of the goods.

Climbing equipment (rope, harnesses, carabiners, belay devices, helmets) is excluded from the right to revoke. Such equipment cannot be returned or exchanged for safety reasons.


8. Guarantee

Without limiting your right to revoke under article 7, you can return the product to us if, e.g. the product in question is not the product ordered, if it is damaged or defective or the incorrect quantity has been delivered.

If goods are delivered with visible transport damage, you must report this damage immediately – if possible – to the delivery person and get in touch with us as quickly as possible. If you do not make a complaint or fail to contact us, this will not affect your legal rights and their enforcement, in particular with regard to your legal right to warranty. But you will help us to assert our own rights against the freight carrier or towards the transport insurance party.

Once we have conformed the defect or other problem, we will:
– provide a full refund,
– provide a full refund for damaged or defective items if within a reasonable time after the sale, or
– according to your choice, repair or replace the items at our expense (including shipping costs) unless this is not possible or disproportionately expensive. In this case, you will receive a refund of the amount already paid for these items.

We will inform you of the refund within a reasonable period of time. We usually process a refund request as soon as possible and, in any case, no later than 30 days after confirmation by e-mail of the refund of damaged or defective items.


9. Property

Purchased items remain our property until paid for in full. As soon as the items have been delivered to you or to a third party designated by you, you bear all risk yourself and are liable accordingly.


10. Liability

Unless expressly agreed otherwise, the statutory regulation regarding liability for defects applies.

The aforementioned limitations and shortened time limits do not apply to claims for damages caused by ourselves, our legal representatives or agents:
– in the event of damage to body, life or health;
– in the event of the wilful or grossly negligent breach of duty and in the case of bad faith;
– in the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which is indispensable to the proper execution of the agreement and on the fulfilment of which the other party involved in the agreement may normally rely (cardinal obligations);
– in the context of a given warranty, insofar as agreed.


11. General

If a provision of these general terms and conditions is invalid or inadmissible, this does not limit the effect or validity of the other provisions.

We may change or edit these terms and conditions over time without prior notice. Please check our website regularly in order to see which general terms and conditions are currently applicable.


12. Applicable law
