  • 3: Right of withdrawal

(1) Consumers (in accordance with § 13 BGB (German Civil Code)) have a legal right of withdrawal.

Cancellation policy

Right of withdrawal

You can withdraw your acceptance of the contract within 14 days, without statement of reasons, in writing (e.g. letter, fax, email), or – in case the products you ordered were sent to you before the expiration of this term – by returning the goods.

The respective term starts upon reception of this written cancellation policy, but not before reception of the goods ordered (in case of repeated delivery, the respective term does not start before the first partial delivery), and not before fulfilment of our duty to inform according to § 246 Par.2 in accordance with §1 Par.1 and 2 EGBGB as well as our duties according to § 312e Par.1 Sentence 1 German Civil Code in accordance with clause 246 §2 EGBGB.

In order to keep the term of withdrawal, sending the written withdrawal or the received goods in time is sufficient. Please address the withdrawal to:

Black Penny Records / Kris Pohlmann, Markgrafenstr.28, D-40545 Düsseldorf


Consequences of withdrawal

In case of effective withdrawal, the respective goods / payment received by either party must be returned and any potential benefit (e.g. interest) must be handed over. Should you not be able to return the received goods as a whole or in parts or in diminished quality only, you are obliged to pay compensation for the value lost. You are not obliged to pay such compensation for any diminishing of quality occurred due to conventional use of the respective product. By “conventional use” it is meant that you test and unpack the goods like it is possible and adequate in a store. Mailable goods are to be returned at our risk. You have to carry the costs for reshipment if the delivered goods were exactly those you ordered and if the amount to be paid for the returned goods does not exceed 40 EUR, or if the goods of a higher price have not been paid for or have, at least, been paid down as contractually agreed at the point of withdrawal. Otherwise the reshipment is free of charge for you. Not mailable goods will be picked up at your door. Any obligation to refund payment must be met within 30 days. For you, this term starts upon sending your withdrawal or the respective goods; for us, it starts upon reception of the same.

End of cancellation policy

 (2) Specific information about the right of withdrawal

In accordance with § 312 d Par. 4 No. 2 German Civil Code the right of withdrawal is not in effect if not ruled otherwise, for distance selling agreements for delivery of audio- or video-carriers or software unless the delivered data carriers were unsealed.

(b) According to § 312 d Par. 4 No. 1 German Civil Code the right of withdrawal is not in business if not ruled otherwise, for distance selling agreements for delivery of goods which are produced according to customers’ specifications or which fit/cater clearly to personal requirements or which are not adequate/dedicated because of their consistence for reshipping or which are fast perishable or whose expiry date has already exceeded. We explicitly point out that products such as t-shirts and other pieces of clothing, with regard to which the customer may choose the print and colour of will only be produced on customer’s demand and are therefore excluded from the right of withdrawal.

(3) No appliance of the distance selling clauses

In accordance with § 312 b Par. 3 No. 6 the rules and regulations of distance selling agreements are not in effect for contracts which provide/render services such as accommodation, transport, delivery of food and drinks as well as recreational activities in case the contractor commits at conclusion of the contract to deliver the services at a particular time or within the period fixed. Thus the right of withdrawal is not in effect for the sale of event tickets, which are fixed.

  • 4 Costs of return when executing right of withdrawal

Should you execute your right of withdrawal according to § 312d Par.1 Sentence 1 German Civil Code, you must pay the common costs for return shipment unless the goods delivered do not follow the originally placed order. In all other cases, we will cover the costs for reshipment.
