If the Seller has due receivables from the Purchaser, the Seller, after having notified the matter, shall have the right to delay agreed deliveries until the due payments have been performed. In such a case, the agreed delivery period is deemed to be extended until such time, and the Purchaser shall not have the right to present the Seller with any damage claims due to such a delay.

In disputable cases it is the sender’s responsibility to present evidence of acceptance of the returned goods, normally a copy of a signed consignment note.
Commercial product return
A completed transaction is binding and irrevocable, and the Seller is not obligated to accept returned goods. Goods delivered in accordance with the agreement shall be accepted back and reimbursed on the condition that the Seller has specifically approved their return in advance. In such a case, the goods may be accepted back and reimbursed only if they are in their original packaging and condition. We will charge the handling fee specified in our service price list for product returns resulting from an error on the purchaser’s part.
If goods are returned due to an error by the Seller, the Seller shall pay the return shipping costs. Returns of this kind must be made via the shipping company that delivered the goods, with the shipping order being made by the Seller.
