§ 12 Guarantee conditions
STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH grants all customers who purchase electronic welding equipment of the Stahlwerk brand directly from STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH, in addition to the statutory claims for defects under the German Civil Code (BGB), a seven-year durability guarantee within the meaning of § 443 BGB in accordance with the following guarantee conditions.

12.1 Warrantor
The guarantor is the company:
STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH
Mainstraße 4
DE-53332 Bornheim
Telephone: +49 (0)228 24331713
Fax: +49 (0)228 24331723
E-mail: info@stahlwerk-schweissgeraete.de
www.stahlwerk-schweissgeraete.de

The guarantee must be asserted against the guarantor.

12.2 Personal scope of application.
The guarantee applies equally to entrepreneurs and consumers.

12.3 Territorial scope of application.
The guarantee applies worldwide.

12.4 Material scope of application.
The seven-year warranty only applies to electronic welding equipment, plasma cutters, vehicle battery chargers, filter cartridges for welding helmets and air compressors of the STAHLWERK brand that were delivered by STAHLWERK Schweißgeräte GmbH from 1 January 2020. For devices delivered by STAHLWERK Schweißgeräte GmbH up to 31 December 2019, the previous five-year warranty shall continue to apply, which has the same content as the current seven-year warranty except for the shorter warranty period.

12.5 Technical scope of application.
The guarantee covers all components in the housing of the appliance. In particular, it applies to the circuit board and the inverter. It does not cover the housing and its external components and connecting parts, such as the hosepack or the ground clamp. It also does not extend to accessories supplied that are not used inside the appliance.

12.6 Content of the warranty claim.
The warranty entitles the customer to free repair of any damaged parts covered by the warranty.

12.7 Authorisation to make subsequent deliveries.
STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH is authorised to deliver a new device instead of repair.

12.8 Replacement authorisation for discontinued models.
If an identical device is no longer sold by STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH or the manufacturer of the device at the time the warranty claim is asserted, STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH shall be entitled to supply the customer with an equivalent or higher quality device that does not meet the technical requirements of the device in fulfilment of the customer's warranty claim. Equivalence is not determined by the replacement value at the time of the warranty claim, but by the value at the time of purchase.

12.9 Exclusion of further claims, in particular for damages.
There are no further claims under the guarantee. In particular, there are no claims for damages, especially not for compensation for consequential damages.

12.10 Duration and commencement of the guarantee.
The warranty period is seven years and begins upon receipt of the goods. Example: Receipt of the goods on 30/06/2020. Start of the guarantee period: 30/06/2020. End of the guarantee period: 29/06/2027.

12.11 Relationship to statutory claims.
The guarantee applies in addition to the statutory claims for defects. These are in no way restricted by the guarantee.

12.12 Assertion.
The warranty must be asserted by sending the repair request in text form to STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH and by sending the device to STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH. In order to comply with the warranty period (= end of the warranty period, see section 10 above), receipt of the repair request in text form within the warranty period is sufficient if the goods are subsequently received by STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH within one week of the end of the warranty period.

12.13 Shipping costs.
The costs of shipping to STAHLWERK Schweißgeräte GmbH shall be borne by the customer. The costs of the return shipment from the manufacturer STAHLWERK Schweißgeräte GmbH to the customer shall be borne by STAHLWERK.
If the Purchaser's registered office at the time of the warranty claim differs from its registered office at the time of purchase and if the registered office at the time of the warranty claim is not located in a member state of the European Union, Norway or Switzerland, Stahlwerk shall only bear the costs of the return shipment which would be incurred if the goods were returned to the Purchaser's registered office at the time of the conclusion of the purchase contract. Due to the additional costs, Stahlwerk may make the return shipment dependent on prior reimbursement by the Buyer.

12.14 Exclusion of warranty.
The warranty is excluded if the defect has been caused by improper handling of the device. In particular, the guarantee is excluded if the defect is due to the fact that the customer has not followed the instructions for use or has carried out repair work inside the appliance himself. The guarantee is also excluded if the defect was caused by an accidental external event.

§ 13 Right of cancellation
You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.
The cancellation period is 14 days from the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, have taken possession of the goods.
In the case of a contract for several goods which you have ordered as part of a single order and which are delivered separately, the cancellation period begins on the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, have taken possession of the last goods.
In the case of a contract for the delivery of goods in several partial shipments or pieces, the cancellation period begins on the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, have taken possession of the last partial shipment or the last piece.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you must inform us:

STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH

DE-53332 Bornheim
Telephone: +49 (0)228 24331713

To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your notification of exercising your right of cancellation before the cancellation period has expired.

13.1 Consequences of cancellation.
If you withdraw from this contract, we shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will we charge you any repayment fees for this repayment.
We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or until you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

You must return the goods immediately and in any case no later than 14 days from the date on which you inform us of the cancellation of this contract to.
STAHLWERK Schweissgeräte GmbH
Mainstraße 4
DE-53332 Bornheim

or to hand it over. The deadline is met if you dispatch the goods before the expiry of the 14-day period.
You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods.
You only have to pay for any loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is due to handling of the goods that is not necessary for checking their condition, properties and functionality.
