Deviating terms and conditions, including terms and conditions of the contracting party, shall not be valid provided that deviations or additions as well as telephone or oral or other additional agreements have not been confirmed in writing.

We can accept this offer at our discretion within 4 weeks either by sending an order confirmation or by sending the ordered goods to the customer within this period.

3. We are entitled to withdraw in case of typing, printing and arithmetic errors in catalogs or on the publisher's website. We reserve the right to deliver a product of equivalent quality and price or to refrain from executing your order if we do not have the ordered title in stock, the out-of-stock item is no longer available and the ordered goods are therefore not available. In this case, we will inform you immediately about the unavailability and immediately reimburse any purchase price already paid.

V. Instructions on withdrawal

Right of withdrawal

You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods.

Thanilo Verlag und Vertriebs GmbH,Stübeweg 60, D-79108 Freiburg
email:; fon: 0761/508001; fax: 0761/502247

of your decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail). You may use the attached model withdrawal form, but it is not obligatory.

To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

Effects of withdrawal

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.

We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.

We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest. You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us.

The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods.

You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

The Customer does not have withdrawal right when

- purchasing single copies of print magazines except for subscription contracts

- the purchase of sealed audio or sealed video recordings or sealed computer software which were unsealed after delivery.

- furthermore, a right of withdrawal does not exist for goods that are not prefabricated and for the manufacture of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer.

In addition, there is no right of withdrawal for contracts for the delivery of newspapers, magazines or magazines other than subscription contracts.

The subscription to the journal system ubw is treated as a continuation order, each issue is billed separately.

VII. Prices and shipping costs

1. Insofar as the offered goods are subject to the law for securing book price binding, our prices are legally fixed shop prices. All the prices quoted in the Online Shop include German statutory turnover tax at the rate in force at the time and are prices for the given currency. The Customer shall pay the normal shipping costs where we will choose the cheapest way of delivery of Deutsche Post AG. We deliver the ordered books immediately to the address provided by you. During the order process, the Customer's attention will be expressly drawn to this fact and to the actual shipping costs payable as follows.

2. Shipping costs per order are as follows:
Within Germany:
1,25 € up to order value of 5,- €
1,95 € from order value over 5,- € to 15,- €
3,50 € from order value over 15,- €
Free shipping from the value of 35,- €
Shipping costs for the magazine Ketzerbriefe by subscription are included in the subscription price (€ 33,30 for 6 issues).

3. Any fees incurred for customs clearance are at your expense; we have no control over these charges and can not predict their amount. Customs regulations vary considerably from country to country. For more information, please contact your local customs office. Please note that as an importer you must comply with the relevant national regulations.

4. For non-branch resellers we draw attention to the fact that - unlike other goods - German-language books are price-bound. The prices of the titles you ordered / delivered to you can be found in our catalogs, our information on our website or the attached invoice. According to the Price Binding Act, all merchant customers are obliged to charge the retail prices set by publishers for resale to end customers without surcharges and discounts. Exceptions apply to cross-border deliveries, unless delivered to Switzerland or Austria. Therefore, please remember to charge your end customers exactly the gross shop prices we have specified. According to the book price binding law violations of the price binding can be warned and sanctioned by injunctive relief and damage claims.

1. The purchase price is due and payable immediately without deduction. Please understand that we accept orders abroad only against  prepayment.

2. If the Customer fails to honour his or her payment obligations we shall be entitled to charge default interest of 5% above the respective base rate announced by the Deutsche Bundesbank. The assertion of any further damage caused by delay remains unaffected. You can pay by bank transfer, direct debit / debit and credit card.

3. Binding delivery dates must be agreed in writing. Written form within the meaning of these terms and conditions does not exist if publication dates are stated in the publisher's brochures or on the publisher's website. An agreed delivery period begins with the date of the order confirmation. The deadline is met if the goods are sent before the deadline.

4. The risk passes to the customer as soon as the delivery has been handed over to the person or institution carrying out the transport.

5. The customer is only entitled to the right of to set off or to retain if and insofar as his counterclaims have been legally established, are undisputed or acknowledged by us.
