Cancellation policy 

Right of withdrawal
You may withdraw from the contract in text form (e.g. by letter, fax, e-mail) within two weeks without giving any reasons or - in case you received the goods prior to the expiry of this period - by means of returning the goods. The period begins on the day after which this instruction is received in writing but not before receipt of the goods by the consignee (in case of recurring deliveries of similar goods not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and not prior to fulfilment of our duty of information according to Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1(1) of the Introductory Act to the German Civil Code (EGBGB) as well as our duties according to § 312e(1) clause 1 of the German Civil Code (BGB) in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB. The withdrawal term is observed if the note of withdrawal has been sent or the despatch of the goods has been initiated within the relevant period of time. The revocation is to be addressed to:

SuboLab GmbH
Fine and Industrial Chemicals
Owner: Stefan Subota
Reetzstr. 79
76327 Söllingen


Telephone: +49 (0)7240 / 9445836
Telefax: +49 (0)7240 / 9445835

Consequences of cancellation
In case of a legitimate withdrawal any payments, goods, or services provided by either side are to be returned and compensation is to be made for any benefits derived (e.g. any interest received). If you are unable to return the received service completely or partially or only in a poor state, you may be liable for any diminished value of the goods. The consumer shall only be liable for any dimished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to ascertain the nature and function of the goods. "Ascertain the nature and function of the goods" means the consumer should only handle or try it in the same manner as he would be allowed to do in a shop. Goods that can be sent as parcels are to be returned at our risk.
The vendor must always bear the costs for sending the goods and principally the costs for returning the goods. In case of a prior contractual agreement you have to bear the costs for returning the goods, however, if the delivered goods correspond to the ordered goods and if the price of the goods to be returned does not exceed € 40.00, or if you have at the time of the withdrawal not yet provided a consideration or made a partial payment as agreed by contract in the case that the price of the goods exceeds € 40.00. Goods which cannot be sent as parcels will be collected. Obligations to reimburse any payments have to be performed within 30 days. For you, the period of time begins with sending the declaration of withdrawal or the goods, for us the period of time begins with receipt of the same.

§ 11 Liability for defects
(1) In case the goods delivered have defects, the Customer can decide whether the Contract will be subsequently fulfilled by repair or replacement of the goods. The SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals is entitled, however, to refuse the Customer's choice if these remedies cause disproportionate costs and the other remedies remain without considerable disadvantages for the Customer.
(2) If the subsequent fulfilment fails, the Customer can basically demand that the trader decreases remuneration (reduction) or cancel the contract. In the case of a minor contractual violation, in particular for insignificant defects, the Customer is not entitled to withdraw from the contract.
3) The Customer, as far as he is not consumer in the sense of § 13 BGB, is obliged to notifiy the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals in writing of obvious defects within two months of the date of time when the contract-breaching state of the goods was determined. Decisive for observance of the deadline is receipt of the notification by the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals. In case of a failure by the Customer to notify us, the warranty rights expire two months after determination of the defect. This does not apply in the event of malice on the part of the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals. 
(4) If the Customer decides to withdraw from the Contract due to a legal or material defect after subsequent fulfilment failed, he is not entitled to receive damages for the defect. If the Customer chooses to receive damages after subsequent fulfilment failed, the goods remain the property of the Customer if reasonable. The damages are limited to the difference between the purchasing price and the value of the defective item. This does not apply if the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals has caused the violation of the contract maliciously. 
(5) The period of limitation is two years starting from the delivery of the goods. This does not apply if the Customer has not reported the defect in time in accordance with Section 3 of this Policy. 
(6) The Customer does not receive guarantees in the legal sense. Manufacturers' guarantees remain unaffected by this.
(7) If the Customer has filed an unfounded complaint about a product and the product is free of faults and defects and if, furthermore, the right of withdrawal according to § 10 of these Terms and Conditions has expired, the Subolab Fine and Industrial Chemicals is entitled to charge the Customer for the damage, i.e. charge shipping and inspection costs in the amount of € 40.00. The Customer is entitled to prove that the damage was lower or that there was no damage. As far as the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals can prove that the damage has increased by the unfounded complaint, compensation can be demanded from the Customer.

§ 12 Limitation of liability
(1) In cases of slight negligence the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals' liability is limited to direct losses foreseeable and typicle of this kind of contract. This does also apply in the case of slight negligence by the legal representatives or agents.
(2) The afore-mentioned limitation of liability does not concern the Customer's claims based on product liability. It does not apply to personal injury, injury to health or loss of life of the Customer that can be attributed to the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals either.
(3) Damages claimed by the Customer due to a defect are barred after a period of one year after the delivery of the goods. This does not apply in the event of malice on the part of the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals.

§ 15 Data protection regulations

(2) If the Customer is a merchant, a legal entity, or a special public fund, the place of business of the SuboLab Fine and Industrial Chemicals shall be the solely place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship.

End of the cancellation policy
