Our offers are without obligation. An order made by you represents a binding offer. This offer can be accepted by Wacom by its own choice through the shipment of the product within 4 weeks.

7.1 Right of withdrawal for goods delivered

7.1.1. You can withdraw from your contractual agreement without having to provide a reason for doing so in writing (e.g., by letter, fax or e-mail) within two weeks or – if the commodity has been left to you before the end of the time limit – by returning the merchandise. The time limit starts upon receipt of this information in written form but not earlier than the merchandise is received by the addressee (or – in case of recurring deliveries of identical merchandise – not earlier than the first partial delivery is received), and also not before we have complied with our duty of information under Article 246 para 2 in conjunction with para 1 cls. 1 and 2 EGBGB (Introductory Act to the German Civil Code) and our duties under Article 312e cl. 1 sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 para 3 EGBGB. Your right of return is ensured if your written withdrawal and/or the return of the merchandise take place during the time limit.

7.1.3. Consequences of the withdrawal

If the case of a valid withdrawal, both parties have to return all services received by each of them, including any benefits (e.g., interest).

Should you not be able to return the goods or only return them partially or in a deteriorated condition, then you may be obligated to value replacement. This does not apply to goods whose deterioration is exclusively due to their being tested – the way you could have tested them in a retail shop where you buy them. You can avoid the obligation of value replacement of a commodity deteriorated due to its putting into operation as intended by not using it as if it was your property and not doing anything that could deteriorate the commodity. Commodities capable of being sent by parcel should be returned to us at our risk. You have to bear the cost of returning the merchandise if the merchandise delivered corresponds to what you ordered and if the price of the merchandise returned does not exceed the amount of 40 Euro or if in the case of a higher price of the merchandise you have not performed the service in return or made partial payment as agreed upon in the contract at the time of your withdrawal. In all other cases, the return delivery is free of charge for you. Merchandise not capable of being sent by parcel will be collected. Obligations of refund payments must be met within 30 days. The time limit begins for you when you post the withdrawal statement or the merchandise and for us when we receive either.

The right of withdrawal does not apply to the delivery of software products if the seal of the data volume has been broken by the consumer.

7.1.4. Right of withdrawal for downloads of software

You can withdraw from your contractual agreement without having to provide a reason for doing so in writing (e.g., by letter, fax or e-mail) within two weeks. The time limit starts upon receipt of this information in written form but not earlier than a contract has been concluded and also not before we have complied with our duty of information under Article 246 para 2 in conjunction with para 1 cls. 1 and 2 EGBGB (Introductory Act to the German Civil Code) and our duties under Article 312e cl. 1 sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 para 3 EGBGB. Your right of return is ensured if your withdrawal statement is sent during the time limit.

7.2.2 Address the revocation to:

7.2.3. Consequences of the withdrawal

If the case of a valid withdrawal, both parties have to return all services received by each of them, including any benefits (e.g., interest). Should you not be able to return the service or only return it partially or in a deteriorated condition, then you may be obligated to value replacement. A possible consequence is that you may have to meet your contractual payment obligations for the period until the withdrawal is made. Obligations of refund payments must be met within 30 days. The time limit begins for you when you post the withdrawal statement and for us when we receive it.

7.2.4 Special note

Your right to withdrawal expires early if the contract has been fulfilled by both parties in its entirety on your express request before you exercised your right of withdrawal.

10. Data protection

10.1 All personal data required to fill the order are handled in accordance with the relevant regulations of the Federal data protection law (Bundesdatenschutzgesetze, BDSG) and the teleservice data protection law (Teledienstdatenschutzgesetz, TDDSG), saved in machine-readable form and kept confidential. Data required to process the order such as name and address can be passed by Wacom to third parties as part of order handling, such as the shipment of the product, processing of payment transactions or the performance of a credit check.
You have the right to information, correction, blocking and deletion of your saved data at any time. Please contact shop@wacom-europe.com or please send us your request by post or fax.

10.2 Cookies
We wish to point out that our online shop uses cookies in order to identify you as a user and to offer you various services. Personal data are not saved in the cookies. With your usage of the online shop, you are indicating your agreement with the use of cookies.

11. Warranty, limitation of liability

11.1 If there is a defect in a purchase item which is our fault, the customer can request a re-filling of the order (remedy of defects or delivery of replacement parts).

11.2 If we are not willing or not able to provide a remedy to the defect / replacement parts and, in particular, if the delay extends beyond reasonable periods of time for reasons beyond our control or if the efforts to remedy the defect/supply replacement parts fail more than twice, the buyer is entitled to choose whether he wishes to withdraw from the agreement or to request a reduction of the purchase price.

11.3 Wacom is only liable for damages claims for others or through damage life, limb and health if this damage is due to malicious intent or grossly negligent actions or through culpable violation of a major contractual violation by Wacom or its vicarious agents. Liability for damages which goes beyond this scope is precluded. The provisions of the Product liability law (Produkthaftungsgesetz) remain unaffected.

11.4 Damages resulting from improper actions of the client or those which violate the terms of the agreement in erection, connection, operation and storage do not justify a claim against Wacom. Improper usage or contractual violations are determined in particular according to the product information.

11.5 Data communication via the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be malfunction-free and/or available at all times according to the current state of the art. We are therefore not liable for a lack of availability of our online shop at any time.

12. Place of performance and jurisdiction

The place of performance and sole jurisdiction is Krefeld insofar as it deals with a business person in the sense of the German Commercial Code (HGB) or a statutory corporation or if your place of residence or usual residency is at the time of the commencement of an action not in the country or is unknown.

13. Final provisions

1. If one of the clauses of these terms so be or become invalid, in full or in part, the remaining clauses remain unaffected.

2. All disputes resulting from this legal relationship are subject to German law with exclusion of United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
