General Terms and Conditions of www.bioncannovea.com
(Valid from: 25/11/2019)
- General information
The General Terms and Conditions apply to the sale and delivery of goods and the provision of services by our company. By clicking on the check box in the shopping basket before placing the order “I have read the GTC and agree to them”, the purchaser agrees to these General Terms and Conditions and is bound by them.
Our range of offers is non-binding. The order placed by the client who is of full legal capacity (persons over the age of 18) constitutes an offer to conclude a purchase contract. The confirmation of receipt of the order subsequently sent by us within the meaning of § 10 para. 2 ECG does not in itself constitute acceptance of the order. The purchase contract is only concluded as soon as we deliver the ordered goods, by sending a second e-mail as order confirmation or by otherwise accepting the client’s offer. All offers on our website are subject to change, non-binding and only available while stocks last.
- Order process, order correction, order cancellation
Once you have selected the desired product, you can place it in the shopping basket without obligation by clicking on the button [Add to shopping basket]. You can view the contents of the shopping basket without obligation at any time by clicking on the button [Shopping basket]. You can remove the products from the shopping basket at any time by clicking on the button [x]. If you want to buy the products in the shopping basket,
click [Checkout]. Please then enter your data. Your data will be transmitted in encrypted form. After entering your data and selecting the type of payment and delivery, the button [Send order] will take you to the order page where you can check your entries again. By clicking the button [Order with payment] you complete the ordering process. You can correct your entries by pressing the “back arrow” of the browser. The order process can be cancelled at any time by closing the browser.
- Contract language
The content of the contract, all other information, client service, data information and complaint handling are offered in German.
The prices are valid at the time of the order including statutory VAT plus all expenses incurred in connection with the shipment. They are shown in the shopping basket before the conclusion of the contract and afterwards in a contract confirmation sent to the client. Should export or import duties become due in the course of shipment, these shall also be borne by the client (information on this can be obtained from your responsible customs office).
A consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.
Right of revocation
You have the right of revocation from this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason.
The revocation period is fourteen days from the day of the conclusion of the contract. To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us (Biocannovea Produktions & Vertriebs GmbH, Lederergasse 35/DG, 1080 Vienna, Austria, Tel.: +43 1 890 61 17 75, [email protected]) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post or by e-mail). You may use the enclosed model revocation form for this purpose, which is, however, not mandatory. To comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the expiry of the withdrawal period.
Consequences of revocation
With your revocation from this contract, we must refund all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of 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 of the day on which we received notification of your revocation 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 without delay and in any case no later than fourteen days from the day on which you notify us of the revocation of this contract. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the end of the period of fourteen days.
You bear the direct costs of returning the goods.
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 testing the condition, properties and functioning of the goods.
If the client is a business, revocation is completely excluded.
Information for the smoothest possible handling of returns
(1) If possible, please return the item to us in its original packaging. The use of the original packaging is not a “must”, i.e. it is not a prerequisite for the assertion of your right, but it simplifies and males the processing safe for us.
(2) If you only want to return one item from the delivery but have ordered other items that you now want to pay for by invoice, simply deduct the item you have returned from the invoice amount. If you pay by direct debit
, the price for the returned item will automatically not be charged.
The consumer has no right of withdrawal for contracts concerning
- goods whose price depends on fluctuations in the financial market over which the business has influence and which may occur within the withdrawal period,
- goods which are made to client specifications or are clearly tailored to personal
needs, goods which may spoil quickly or whose expiry date would be exceeded quickly,
- goods which are delivered sealed and are not suitable for return for reasons of health protection or hygiene, provided that their seal has been removed after delivery,
- goods, which, due to their nature, have been inseparably mixed with other goods after delivery,
- alcoholic beverages, the price of which was agreed upon at the time of conclusion of the contract, but which cannot be delivered earlier than 30 days after conclusion of the contract and the current value of which depends on fluctuations in the market over which the trader has no control,
- sound or video recordings or computer software delivered in a sealed package, provided that the seal has been removed after delivery,
- newspapers, periodicals or magazines with the exception of subscription contracts for the delivery of such publications

Furthermore, we accept:
- Prepayment by bank transfer

If the client is in default of payment, we are entitled to claim the statutory default interest. The statutory interest rate for monetary claims between businesses from business transactions is 9.2 percentage points above the base interest rate (http://www.oenb.at/Service/Zins–und-Wechselkurse/Anknuepfungszinssaetze.html). However, if the debtor is not responsible for the delay, the default interest rate shall be 4%. In addition, we are entitled to demand a lump sum of 40 Euro from the debtor as compensation for any collection costs in the event of late payment in accordance with § 458 UGB.
The statutory default interest between consumers and businesses is 4 percentage points.
- Reminder and collection charges
With any default, the contracting party undertakes to reimburse us for the reminder and collection charges to which we are entitled, even with late payment through no fault of our own, insofar as they are necessary for the appropriate prosecution of the claim and are reasonable in relation to the claim, whereby the contracting party undertakes in particular to reimburse the costs incurred by us with any involvement of a collection agency, insofar as these do not exceed the maximum rates of remuneration due to collection agencies. If we carry out the reminder process ourselves, the debtor undertakes to pay an amount of EUR 25 per reminder and an amount of EUR 5 per half-year for keeping records of the debt relationship in the reminder process.
- Default of acceptance
For default of acceptance by clients who have ordered as businesses, we are entitled to store the goods with us, for which we charge a storage fee of EUR 0.1 per calendar day or part thereof. At the same time, we insist on fulfilment of the contract.
- Retention of title
We retain title to the delivered service or goods or to the media processed or created by us until receipt of all payments from the business relationship with the client. If the client resells goods subject to retention of title, he shall also pass on the retention of title. The client shall notify us immediately of any third party seizure of our goods subject to retention of title. Pledges, transfers by way of security and similar of the goods subject to retention of title are only permissible with our prior consent. If payment is not made immediately after a reminder in the event of late payment, our goods subject to retention of title shall be returned immediately. The costs of taking back the goods shall be borne by the client.

- Warranty, liability, guarantee
The warranty is governed by the statutory regulations. It is limited to the statutory period of 24 months from the date of acceptance of the goods by the purchaser or, in the case of services, from the date of completion of the service. In the event of justified deficiencies, the goods shall be replaced or improved free of charge within a reasonable period of time. If replacement or improvement is out of the question (not possible, too much effort, unreasonable, delay, etc.), the purchaser is entitled to a price reduction or, if the defect is not minor, cancellation of the contract (conversion).
Deficiencies that occur are to be notified as far as possible upon delivery or after they become visible, whereby a client’s failure to notify us upon delivery or after they become visible has no influence on the consumer’s warranty claims. If the purchase is a commercial transaction (B2B) for the client, they must inspect the goods no later than 2 weeks after receipt and notify us immediately if a defect is found.
Our company is only liable for damages with any intent and gross negligence. This does not apply to personal injury or consumer transactions. The existence of slight or gross negligence must be proven by the injured party, unless it is a consumer transaction. Compensation for consequential (defect) damage, as well as other property damage, financial loss and damage to third parties against the client, insofar as it is not a consumer transaction, is excluded.
The claim under the guarantee does not limit the statutory warranty. When goods are shipped in consumer transactions, the risk of loss of or damage to the goods shall only pass to the consumer as soon as the goods are delivered to the consumer or to a third party designated by the consumer and different from the carrier. If, however, the consumer has concluded the contract of carriage themselves without making use of a choice suggested by us, the risk shall pass as soon as the goods are handed over to the carrier.
- Applicable law, place of jurisdiction
The contracting parties agree that Austrian law shall apply. If the consumer has their domicile or habitual residence in Austria or if they are employed in Austria, only the jurisdiction of the court in whose district the domicile, habitual residence or place of employment is located can be established for an action against them; this does not apply to legal disputes that have already arisen. The UN Sales Convention and all regulations relating to the UN Sales Convention are expressly excluded.
For contracts with companies, our registered office is agreed as the place of jurisdiction.
- Place of performance for business transactions
The place of performance for all services arising from the contract is our registered office.
All news, graphics and the design of our website are exclusively for the personal information of our clients and are protected by copyright.
- Arbitration board

Internet Ombudsman, Margaretenstraße 70/2/10, A-1050 Vienna

Delivery is by post or forwarding agent
If not all ordered items are available for immediate delivery, the items that are available for immediate delivery will be delivered immediately and additional items will be delivered as soon as they are available. However, the delivery costs will only be charged once per order, even with partial delivery.
- Shipping costs
The prices shown in the list below are net prices. The VAT rate applicable to the delivery (10% or 20%) is determined by the products in the shopping basket.
- Storage of the contract
The order and purchase of a product in the webshop constitutes a contract. This is stored with us and can be requested by you after completing the order process. You can print out the order data immediately after submitting it. To do this, you can either use the subsequent “Your order” page or the “Confirmation of receipt” mail.
Recourse claims within the meaning of the Product Liability Act are excluded unless the party entitled to recourse proves that the defect was caused in our sphere and was at least due to gross negligence.
The contracting party waives the possibility of offsetting. However, this does not apply
