1. Orders and payments
www.kaufmann-store.com is open 24 hours per day and consequently, you can shop almost any time. However, the shop may be closed down due to maintenance. You can only make purchases when the shop is open and available.
In order to shop at www.kaufmann-store.com you must be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid payment card accepted by us. If you have not yet attained the age of 18, you can still purchase products if you have obtained the consent of your guardian or in another manner have a legal right to make the purchase. You are responsible for providing correct information to Axel Kaufmann.
You select the products you want to buy and add them to the “shopping basket”. Up until the time the order is made you may change the contents of the shopping basket and you may on an ongoing basis check the contents of the basket and the price of the products.
Any additional payments for e.g. freight will not be calculated until immediately before you are ready to pay.
Once you are ready to order, you click “go to basket” where you enter your name, address, email, telephone number, select type of delivery, and enter your payment information.
You may change the contents of your basket right up until the time to confirm your purchase. The purchase is confirmed by clicking the button “Pay now”. Your order is subsequently approved and confirmation will be sent to your via email.

Please note that custom duties and charges may be added if your order is for delivery outside Europe. You must pay for these expenses yourself. Customs rules vary extensively from country to country so we advise you to contact the local customs authorities if you are in doubt.
Your order is always dispatched in one to two working days. If you place your order on a regular weekday before noon, we will strive to dispatch the package that same day. Unless otherwise agreed, we will send all packages using DHL and make it possible for you to track your package right up until the time when it is delivered at the place of delivery.

The period during which you may exercise your right of cancellation starts on the day you receive the product. If the 30-day period expires on a holiday, Saturday, 24 December (Christmas Eve) or 31 December (New Year’s Eve), the period is extended to expire on the following weekday. (Example: If the product is received on 1 June, the last day on which the right of cancellation may be exercised will be 15 June.

The product in question may be returned to us at the same address as that stated above.
Documentation may be demanded proving that the product was sent prior to expiry of the time limit. If the product is to be sent, it must be packaged in a responsible manner. You are responsible for ensuring that the package/product arrives undamaged. Consequently, you should save postal receipts and any track and trace number. Furthermore, we encourage you to enclose a copy of the order confirmation or other documentation of your purchase and to return the product in its original packaging. In addition, it will ease our processing if you fill out the return form, which can be found here.
You are liable for the expenses incidental to returning a product when you cancel the purchase.
Products must be returned in a good and undamaged condition. If returned products show signs of damage or use, other than what is required to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the product, you will be liable for any loss of value of such product. You may thus lose the right in full or in part to have the purchase price refunded. We will estimate the value on the basis of a specific assessment of the returned product. As a general rule, the price of products where the packaging has been lost or is damaged will be reduced by a minimum of 20% and the price of products which have been used or have been damaged in another manner will be reduced by a minimum of 80%.
If you decide to withdraw from the contract in accordance with the above, we will refund the purchase price together with the original freight costs (however, not any additional costs incurred as a consequence of you opting for a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery) less any loss of value.
Payment for the product will be refunded as soon as possible and in any event no later than 14 days after we have received your notification on cancellation. However, we reserve the right to withhold such refund until we have received the product(s) for inspection or until you have supplied evidence of having returned the product, whichever is the earliest.
The amount will always be refunded to the same means of payment which you used to make the purchase. If e.g. you have paid using a payment or credit card, the amount will be refunded to the card you used making the purchase. If you have paid in whole or in part using a gift voucher, we will send you a new gift voucher corresponding to the value of the products you have returned and at a value no higher than what the gift voucher amounts to on the order.
