§ 2 Conclusion of contract, formation of contract

2.1 By placing an order via email or telephone you submit a binding proposal to Atelier Lange Nadel to conclude a contract with you.

The contract is concluded by sending the fulfillment confirmation.

You place an order by filling out the order form and, after reviewing your order data as well as after accepting our general terms and conditions, by sending the form to us by clicking the button (send order). You can correct data entry errors by navigating backwards in your browser or by cancelling the order process by clicking the button (cancel) and starting from the beginning.

§ 4 Instruction on cancellation

 As consumer you have a two-week right of cancellation under the following conditions:

You may cancel your declaration of contract within two weeks, without providing reasons, in writing (e.g. letter, email) or, if goods have been handed over to you before expiry of the two weeks, by returning the goods. The two-week period starts after receipt of this written caution, but not before goods have reached the recipient (in case of recurring delivery of similar goods not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and not before fulfillment of our legal responsibility to share information according  § 312c Abs. 2 BGB in connection with § 1 Abs. 1, 2 and 4 BGB-InfoV and our responsibilities according to § 312e paragraph 1, sentence 1 BGB in connection with § 3 BGB-InfoV. In order to adhere to the statutory period of cancellation the timely sending of the cancellation or the goods suffices. Address the cancellation to:

Consequences of cancellation

In case of a valid cancellation goods and services received by both sides have to be returned, and derived capital (e.g. interest) has to be released, if applicable. If you are unable to return the received goods or services as a whole or in parts, or only in deteriorated condition, you are obliged to provide us with compensation for lost value, if required. In case of surrender of goods this does not apply, if the deterioration of the goods is an exclusive consequence of their examination – as would be possible in e.g. a brick-and-mortar store. Incidentally you can avoid the obligation for compensation of lost value due to deterioration of the goods by handling them according to their intended use, if you do not use the goods as if they were your property and if you avoid everything that might deteriorate their value. Goods that can be shipped as packages are to be sent back at our risk. You will pay the price of the reshipment, if the goods are in accordance with the ordered goods and if the price of the goods to be reshipped does not exceed 40 Euro, or in case of a higher price, if at the time of cancellation you have not yet fulfilled the return service or a partial payment, as regulated by legal agreement. Reshipment is free of charge for you in any other case. Goods that cannot be shipped as packages will be collected at your place of residence. Obligations of payment have to be fulfilled within 30 days. The period of notice starts for you upon sending your cancellation notice or the goods; it starts for us upon receipt of notice or goods.

 End of instruction on cancellation


§ 5 Reservation of proprietary rights

 Proprietorship of the delivered goods is passed to the customer only after complete payment of the purchasing price. The customer does not have the right to pawn, transfer, process or alter the goods under reserve before passing of proprietorship.  If the customer is partially or fully behind schedule with one or more payments, or if he cancels his payments, or if insolvency proceedings on his assets are filed the customer does not have permission to further use the goods under reserve. In this case we have the right to withdraw from the contract without having to set a time limit on value performance for the customer. We have the right to demand return of the goods under reserve, even without withdrawal. 

§ 6 Pricing and shipping costs

 6.1 All prices are valid and include the legal value added tax


§ 7 Delivery

 If Atelier Lange Nadel is unable to deliver the ordered goods without actual fault, because our supplier does not fulfill his contractual obligations, we have the right to withdraw from the customer. In this case the customer will receive immediate notice that the ordered product is not available. The legal entitlements of the customer remain untouched. If a purchasing price has already been paid it will be reimbursed without delay.

§ 8 Terms of payment

 8.1 Payment is delivered in advance.

 8.2 Payments are due only after sending the order confirmation to you via email. You will receive information about our bank details when we send the order confirmation.

 8.3 If you are a consumer, you will be charged 5% above base rate interest on the purchasing price during the period of delayed payment, from the start of the delayed payment. If you are not a consumer, the interest rate is 8% above base rate during the period of delayed payment. It remains our right to establish greater damage caused by delay and assert claims accordingly.

§ 9 Warranty

Warranty established according to legal rules and regulations.
