Section 1 Cancellation rights for consumers

In accordance with Section 13 BGB (German Civil Code) a consumer is a natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that largely can neither be attributed to their commercial nor self-employed professional activity. Consumers have the following cancellation right:

Cancellation notice

Cancellation right
You are entitled to cancel this contract within fourteen days without stating reasons for such action. The cancellation period is fourteen days from the day on which the contract is entered into.

To exercise your cancellation right, you need to inform us (Jawset Visual Computing, Jascha Wetzel, Rauchstrasse 1, D-81679 Munich, Germany, Tel. +49 (0) 89 200 336 22, e-mail: info@jawset.com) by way of an unequivocal declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, facsimile or an e-mail) of your decision to cancel this contract. You may use the enclosed sample cancellation form in that respect. However, you are not required to use that form.

To safeguard the cancellation right, it is sufficient if you forward the notification of exercising the cancellation right prior to expiry of the cancellation period.

Cancellation consequences

If you cancel this contract, we shall be required to repay to you all payments that we have received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of the additional costs resulting from the fact that you a type of delivery other than the most favourable standard delivery offered by us), without delay and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which we received notification of your cancellation of this contract. For this repayment we shall use the same payment method that you used in your original transaction unless something to the contrary was expressly agreed with you; under no circumstances shall we charge you fees for such a repayment.

We may refuse to make the repayment until we have received the returned goods or until you furnish proof that you have sent the goods back depending on whichever is the earlier of the two.

Reference to Section 356(5) BGB with regard to the delivery of digital content:
The cancellation right shall expire in the case of a contract for the delivery of digital content not contained on a physical data carrier, including if the entrepreneur has started to execute the contract – in this case the provision of the software in the customer log-in area – once the consumer has granted his express consent in that respect and simultaneously confirmed his awareness that his cancellation right shall be forfeited at the time at which execution of the contract begins.

Jawset's General Terms and Conditions of Business have preference, above all, over the customer's terms and conditions of business, delivery, contract and purchase. The latter shall not become an integral part of the contract including if they are not expressly rejected by Jawset. These General Terms and Conditions of Business shall also apply if Jawset unconditionally delivers to the customer in knowledge of contrary or differing conditions of the customer.

Section 3 Offers and entering into contracts

(1) During the course of placing an order, the customer may amend the order at any time, lastly at the order overview in the shopping basket area.

However, as part of the processing of purchases, the customer receives e-mail confirmation of the order with details of the order data and the contractual content, the General Terms and Conditions of Business and the cancellation notice. Furthermore, the customer may print and save the contractual text and the General Terms and Conditions of Business via the website.
