GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS (T&Cs) LOQI GMBH (HEREINAFTER ALSO 'LOQI')
We process your order exclusively in accordance with our T&Cs valid at the time of your order.
2. ENTERING INTO A CONTRACT, MINIMUM ORDER VALUE
2.1 You are only able to place orders via our home page (online).
2.2 Our offers on our home page (online) are without engagement and non-binding. By ordering the desired goods you are making a binding offer to enter into a contract to purchase the product concerned. Immediately after receipt of an offer we will send you a confirmation of order regarding receipt of the offer that still does not represent acceptance. We are then entitled to accept your offer within 14 calendar days by sending a Delivery Notice (by post or email) to you. Your order is not regarded as accepted until we have accepted it by means of a Delivery Notice. Where your offer is not accepted by us within 14 calendar days, the offer is regarded as rejected. A contract for the sale of goods does not exist for products not listed in the conformation of order.
3.1 Please refer to our Delivery & Returns page for approximate delivery times and cost.
3.2 Where by way of exception an item is unable to be delivered or will take longer, we will notify you of this before you complete your order. We will inform you as quickly as possible of the delivery deadline or, alternatively, that delivery is not possible. We reserve the right to undertake a part delivery where this appears to favour fast processing and is acceptable to you. In the event of a part delivery we will of course bear the additional shipping costs. No further costs to you will arise.
3.3 Meeting a delivery deadline depends on the availability of supplies. Where the ability to deliver depends on delivery by an upstream supplier and this delivery fails for reasons beyond our control, we reserve the exclusive right to withdraw from the contract. You are not entitled to compensation in the event of withdrawal in such a way.
3.4 In the same way, you are not entitled to compensation either where, due to force majeure or any other event, delivery is hampered or prevented beyond LOQI's control. In particular, such events include: Fire, flooding, industrial dispute, disruption to production, strike and official orders not attributable to LOQI. In these cases you will be notified immediately about the inability to deliver and any payment already made will be refunded to you by LOQI.
4. CANCELLATION CLAUSE
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.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your:
- geographical address
- (where available)
- decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email).
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.
The cancellation shall be addressed to:
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 (see address above), 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.
---------------------- End of the Cancellation Clause ----------------------
4.1 Please avoid damage or soiling. If possible, return the goods to us in a resalable condition, with all accessories, the original protective packaging and original labels on the goods.
4.2 In the event of a return, please send a corresponding email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number. Please return the goods in their original packaging to the online shop.
4.3 Please note that the terms set out in no. 4.1 and 4.2 are not prerequisites for effectively exercising the right to cancellation.
5.1 The respective list prices at the time of the order as displayed on our website apply.
5.2 All prices quoted on our website are in Euros and in principle include statutory VAT. Costs for packaging and shipping (shipping costs) are set out in accordance with the following table under section 6.
5.3 Where the delivery address is outside the EU, German VAT currently at 19% will not be calculated as part of the ordering process. Order prices quoted in this respect are therefore VAT exempt when ordered and delivered outside the EU and only shipping and packaging costs are added.
However, import taxes, customs duties and costs in the destination country may be charged for orders shipped outside of the EU. Import duties and taxes are charged to the recipient by the respective customs office and borne exclusively and directly by the recipient. These are in accordance with the import regulations of the recipient country. For more detailed information, contact your relevant customs office.

6.2 The specific amount of shipping costs due are displayed in the final step of the order process. It is still possible to cancel the order at this moment.
6.3 With part shipments (e.g. comprising 2 items of which only 1 is returned), LOQI reserves the right to subsequently charge for transport costs.
7. TERMS OF PAYMENT
In principle we accept the following methods of payment:
a) Credit cards: all countries
b) PayPal: all countries where PayPal allows an account to be opened.
With certain orders we reserve the right not to offer certain types of payment and to request other types of payment.
7.1 Payment by credit card
We accept VISA and EURO-/MASTERCARD. Please provide us with the card number, the security number (CCV/CVC)* and expiry date of the card. When invoiced, your credit card is charged with the invoice amount. The security number (CCV/CVC) for VISA and EURO/MASTERCARD can be found on the rear of the credit card. It consists of a 3-digit number and follows the 16-digit card number.
PayPal is an online payment service provided by the company PayPal (Europe) S.A.R.L. & Cie, S.C.A. that offers a real-time payment solution. In order to be able to use PayPal you need a PayPal account where you can leave the details of your bank or credit card so that you do not need to provide them every time you make a new purchase. Using PayPal you can make payments by simply giving your email address and password. The corresponding amount is directly debited from your PayPal account and you receive an order confirmation by email directly from PayPal. As soon as the goods are packed you receive a delivery note from LOQI listing the shipped items once again. For further information see www.paypal.com.
8.1 The warranty is governed by statutory provisions. With complaints we require proof of the date of purchase by means of the invoice and a picture of the item subject of the complaint showing the damage, sent to the following email address: email@example.com. You will then hear from us by email about the further course of action. If our examination based on the picture finds that the item subject of the complaint can be repaired, the item, together with a copy of the invoice, is to be sent to the following address:
There is no claim to warranty as a result of normal wear and tear or usage.
9. PLEASE NOTE WITH REGARD TO DAMAGE DURING TRANSPORT
Visible external damage to the parcel from LOQI shall be immediately certified in a suitable manner by those delivering the parcel. The transport companies are bound by this. Where non-visible external damage or defects become apparent or the contents are found to weigh less, then no further unpacking shall take place. The transport company shall be immediately requested to record the damage in writing. In all cases, goods and packaging shall be left in the condition they were in when the damage was discovered until the facts are recorded by the transport company's representative.
