General Terms and Conditions
General terms and conditions for purchase contracts concluded via the online shop of Uhrenfabrik Junghans GmbH & Co. KG, Geißhaldenstrasse 49, 78713 Schramberg, Germany, Phone: +49 (0) 74 22 18-0, VAT ID No. DE263062081 (hereinafter referred to as the "Provider").
For the business relationship between the Provider and the Customer, only the following General Terms and Conditions in the version valid at the time that the order was placed shall apply. Any deviating conditions of the Customer shall not be acknowledged unless the Provider expressly agrees to this on an individual basis and in writing.
Within the meaning of these Terms and Conditions and pursuant to Section 13 of the German Civil Code (hereinafter: BGB), a consumer is defined as any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that predominantly are outside their trade, business or profession. Within the meaning of these Terms and Conditions and pursuant to Section 14 of the BGB, a trader is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal personality who or which, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in exercise of their trade, business or profession. Within the meaning of these T&Cs, Customers can be consumers or traders.
Conclusion of the contract
In the online shop, the Customer can choose the desired number of products from the Provider’s range and add them to their digital shopping cart by clicking on “Add to shopping cart”. By clicking on the “Proceed to checkout” button, the Customer submits a binding request to purchase the goods in the shopping cart. Before sending their order, the Customer can view a summary of it and make any necessary changes. The request can only be submitted and forwarded if the Customer has entered the necessary personal information and accepted these General Terms and Conditions by ticking the box "I have read and agree to the General Terms and Conditions and the cancellation policy contained therein”, thereby including them in their enquiry or order.
The Provider then sends the Customer an automatic confirmation of receipt by email. This confirmation will list the Customer’s order. The Customer can print out the confirmation of receipt using the “Print” function. The confirmation of receipt merely documents the fact that the Provider has received the Customer’s order and does not constitute acceptance of the order. The contract only comes into effect once the Provider has issued an order conformation in a separate email. In this order confirmation, or at the latest upon delivery of the goods, the complete contract text (consisting of the order, general terms and conditions and the order confirmation) shall be sent to the Customer by the Provider by email. The contract text is stored in accordance with applicable data protection rules.
The contract shall be concluded exclusively in the German language.
Delivery | Availability of goods
Unless any specific or deviating delivery times are given in the online shop for the product, the delivery time within Germany is between three and five working days. The delivery time stated by the Provider is calculated from the time that the order confirmation was sent. The Customer must pay the full purchase price before the delivery is sent. However, the situation changes if the Customer chooses to pay on account. If the Customer chooses to pay by bank transfer (prepayment), the delivery time is calculated from the time that the payment reaches the Provider. This can take a few days due to the processing times of different banking institutions.
If the product that the Customer has selected is not available at the time of ordering, the Provider must inform the Customer of this immediately in the order confirmation. If the product is permanently unavailable, the Provider will not confirm the order. If this happens, a contract is not concluded.
If the product in the Customer’s order is only temporarily unavailable, the Provider must inform the Customer of this immediately in the order confirmation. If there is a delay in the delivery of more than seven working days, the Customer has the right to cancel the contract. The Customer’s legal right of cancellation (see Section 9 of these terms and conditions) is not affected by this.
The following delivery restrictions apply: The Provider only delivers in Germany. The Customer must enquire about deliveries to other countries in advance via the Provider’s contact form.
Reservation of proprietary rights
The delivered goods remain the property of the Provider until the full amount due has been paid.
Prices and shipping costs
All prices stated on the Provider’s website include the applicable statutory value added tax.
The Provider delivers to Customers in Germany free of charge. The goods are sent by post (usually with GLS). If the Customer is a consumer, the Provider shall bear the shipping risk.
If the Customer chooses to cancel the contract, they shall be liable for covering the costs of returning the goods (cf. Right of cancellation in Section 9)
The Customer may pay the amount due by bank transfer, credit card, immediate transfer, on account and by PayPal.
If the Provider completes any work in advance, e.g. in the case of payment on account, the Provider shall carry out an assessment of the credit risk based on the mathematical-statistical procedures of the credit agency Klarna Bank AB (publ) Chausseestrasse 117, 10115 Berlin. For this, the Customer’s personal information necessary for the credit assessment [name, date of birth, address, bank details, is transferred to the credit agency. During this assessment, the Customer's address information is also taken into account. If the result of the credit check is negative, the Provider reserves the right to refuse to offer the payment method "on account". (3)
The Customer can change the payment method stored in their user account at any time.
The full purchase price must be paid in full when the contract is concluded.
The obligation of the Customer to pay default interest does not exclude the assertion of further default damages by the Provider.
Warranty for material defects | Guarantee
The Provider shall be liable for any material defects in accordance with the applicable statutory provisions, in particular Sections 343 et seq. BGB. The limitation period for statutory claims for defects is two years and starts when the goods are delivered.
In addition, the Provider shall also provide a two-year manufacturer guarantee for their products starting from the date of purchase. You can find further details and conditions for asserting the guarantee in the respective product descriptions in the online shop and on the guarantee cards that the Provider supplies with their products. The customer's statutory rights are not restricted by the guarantee.
In accordance with the statutory provisions, the Provider shall be held fully liable for damages arising from injury to life, limb or health based on an intentional or negligent breach of duty and for other damages based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty or fraudulent intent. In addition, the Provider shall be held fully liable for damages covered by liability under the mandatory statutory provisions, such as the German Product Liability Act, and in the event of an acceptance of guarantees.
The Provider shall be liable for any damage caused by slight or ordinary negligence insofar as this negligence relates to a breach of contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for the proper execution of the contract and on compliance with which the Customer can regularly rely (so-called cardinal obligations). The liability of the Provider is limited to foreseeable, contract-typical, unavoidable damages.
Any further liability for damages is excluded.
The above limitations of liability shall also apply to the Provider's legal representatives and vicarious agents if claims are asserted directly against them.
If the Customer is a consumer, they usually have a statutory right of cancellation when concluding a long-distance transaction. The Provider shall inform them of this in the text below in accordance with the statutory model. The exceptions to the right of cancellation are set out in Paragraph 2 below.
