Payment with Paymorrow (for customers based in Germany and paying upon receipt of invoice)
For the purposes of liability risk assessment and credit checks, Paymorrow (or nominated partner companies acting on its behalf), to the extent permitted by law and with due regard to their respective data protection duties on transfer or use of data, may, when payment by invoice is sought, communicate your location details (as the case may require) to credit reference agencies for the purposes of assessing creditworthiness. For information about your payment history, we refer to the following credit reference agencies, which store information for the purpose of data provision:

SCHUFA will communicate to Paymorrow GmbH a percentage figure which indicates the extent to which the personal data that you entered corresponds to the personal data stored for you. In some cases, it may also refer to an identity check supported by ID, whether carried out previously by SCHUFA or by another contractual partner. On the basis of the consistency check, Paymorrow GmbH can identify whether a person living at the address which you specify appears in the SCHUFA database.

Section 4: Cancellation policy/right cancellation
Right of cancellationYou have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving reasons.
The cancellation period is 14 days from the date on which you (or a third party nominated by you, other than the carrier) have taken possession of the goods.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must inform us (Hans-Jürgen Müller GmbH & co. KG, Hauptstraße 18, 08328 Stützengrün, Germany; Phone: + 49 (0) 3 74 62-652 - 0, fax: + 49 (0) 3 74 62 - 652-18, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) by means of an unambiguous statement (such as a letter, fax or email), of your decision to revoke this agreement. You may use the attached standard cancellation form, but you are not required to do so.
You must send notice of your wish to exercise your right of cancellation before the cancellation deadline.
Actions consequent on cancellationIf you cancel this contract, we must repay all payments that we have received from you, including the delivery charges (except for any additional costs arising where you have chosen a different delivery preference, other than the best-value standard delivery offered by us). We must do so without delay and at the latest within 14 days of receiving your notification of cancellation. We will use the same payment method that you used in the original transaction, barring any express agreement with you to the contrary; in no circumstances will you be charged fees as a result of the repayment. We may refuse to refund you until we have received the returned goods or until you have demonstrated that you have returned the goods, whichever is earlier.
You must return or hand back the goods promptly and in any case no later than 14 days from the date on which you informed us of the cancellation. The deadline is deemed to have been met if you send the goods before the expiration of the 14-day period. You bear the direct cost of returning the goods.
You are not liable for any possible diminution in value of goods, unless such diminution in value is the result of any handling or usage unrelated to testing the properties, functioning and quality of the goods.
End of cancellation policy
Section 5: Retention of titleWe retain ownership of the purchased goods until complete payment of all claims arising from the contract, including ancillary claims.
Section 6: Warranty and liabilityStatutory warranty rights apply, with the following modifications:
Insofar as you have concluded the contract for a purpose connected with your trade or independent professional activity (as an ‘entrepreneur’ within the meaning of Section 14 of the German Civil Code), you bear responsibility for informing us of any defects that are sufficiently plain that they might come to the notice of an average, non-expert consumer, without special care in the examination of the goods, within two weeks of receipt. Should you fail to do so, your warranty rights are deemed to elapse.
Insofar as a defect exists in the purchased goods, we offer you the choice of having the defect rectified or receiving delivery of a defect-free item. Where the defect cannot reasonably be rectified, or where the replacement delivery is unsuccessful or cannot be completed, the customer has the right to choose a reduction in the purchase price, to exercise a right of withdrawal from the contract, or to demand compensation (insofar as the corresponding legal conditions are met).
Further claims for damages for whatever legal reason (in particular the violation of subsidiary contractual obligations, default, entitlement to damages for tort or reimbursement of expenses with the exception of the same under Section 439(2) of the German Civil Code) are excluded. This does not apply if an essential contractual obligation (cardinal duty) has been violated, or if intent or gross negligence can be shown on our part or on the part of one of our legal representatives or agents. The exclusion of liability does not apply in the event of: any culpable violation of life, body or health; or any warranty or pledge of properties, if the liability arises from the subject of the warranty or pledge if just the subject of the warranty or pledge. In the case of liability for the breach of cardinal duty, compensation is limited to that arising from foreseeable damage and covered by contracts of this nature. The limitation of liability does not apply to claims under the Product Liability Act. A warranty or pledge in the sense of an assumption of additional liability or another party’s obligations is not deemed to be given unless the words "warrantee" or "pledge” are explicitly used.
For all newly manufactured products supplied by us, any warranty claims shall expire one year after the transfer of risk. If you have concluded the contract as a natural person for a purpose unconnected with your trade or independent professional activity (see Section 13 of the German Civil Code), the limitation period is two years.
