2.The Consequences of Cancelation In case of an effective cancelation, both parties shall return the received goods, payments and all other derived benefits (e.g. interest). In case the customer is unable to return any or all of the received goods and benefits or in case he returns them in a diminished state, the customer shall compensate us for the lost value. This shall not apply to objects when the reduction of their value is caused exclusively by testing them – e.g. the way a customer in a brick and mortar store may evaluate merchandise. Incidentally, the customer is free to avoid the obligation to compensate the contractual partner for lost value due to using the object as intended by not using the object like his/her property and by refraining from all use that may result in a value loss. To the extent possible, the customer shall return objects by parcel post. The customer shall bear the costs of returning the merchandise provided the goods have been delivered as ordered and the price of the return merchandise does not exceed EUR 40.00 or in case of merchandise valued at more than EUR 40.00, when at the time of the cancelation the customer has not performed as stipulated or has not made the contractually agreed partial or full payment. In all other cases the customer may return the merchandise free of charge. Objects not suitable for shipment by parcel post shall be picked up at the customer’s premises. The obligation to return received payments shall be fulfilled within 30 days. For the customer the grace period starts with the date the cancelation is sent or the object is returned; for the vendor, Rheingold-Music. the grace period begins with the receipt of the cancelation or the returned goods.
3.Financed Business Transactions In case the vendor finances the transaction through a loan and the customer cancels the transaction, the customer is no longer legally bound by the terms of the loan agreement, provided the two agreements constitute an economic unit. This is the assumption when we act toward the customer as the vendor and the lender or in case we assist the customer in securing the loan. If at the time of the cancelation or the return of the goods we have already become the beneficiary of a granted loan, then the lender shall step into our rights and obligations toward the customer as far as they are the result of the financed agreement.
4.Distance Selling Regulations void the right of withdrawal for deliveries of tailor made products or products which have been manufactured according to the customer's specifications product groups "cabinets" and "amplifiers". The same applies for products which due to their nature are unsuitable for a return. such as perishable products or products where the expiry date has passed.Furthermore, Distance Selling Regulations void the right of withdrawal for deliveries of audio and video recordings, or software with a broken seal.
