General Terms and Conditions
This abridged version of our general terms and conditions of business is provided by us as a service. However, only the German language version is legally effective. Austrian law applies.
Eventlights.at is run by
(referred to below as 'Eventlights'). In the event of any queries, please contact us by email or telephone (in German or English):
The general terms and conditions of business apply to the sale and delivery of goods through Eventlights. Different terms and conditions of the buyer only have effect if we agree to them in writing. With the placing of an order, the buyer declares that he agrees to these general terms and conditions of business.
Our range of services/products is non-binding. The customer’s order represents an offer to conclude a purchase contract. The following confirmation of receipt of the order and status reports sent by us do not represent an acceptance of the offer. The purchase contract is only made when we ship the goods ordered and confirm the dispatch to the customer.
Unless stated otherwise all prices are inclusive of statutory value added tax and exclusive of shipping fees and fees for payment transactions. Settlement are made in euros. For sales to customers outside of the EU, no value added tax is payable, but they must pay the relevant national import duties. For sales to businesses within the EU (outside of Austria and Germany), no value added tax is payable if they provide evidence of their VAT number. They must pay value added tax in their home country.
Right of Termination
A person placing an order who is a consumer within the meaning of the Konsumentenschutzgesetzes (Austrian Consumer Protection Act) can terminate the contract within a period of 1 month from receipt of delivery. In the event that the contract is terminated, a refund of the whole or part of the purchase price is only made against the return of the goods received. This is conditional upon the goods being sent back in an unused condition such that they can be resold as new, and if possible in their original packaging. The cost of shipping shall be borne by the customer. In the case of articles which are affected by signs of use, or whose packaging is damaged, an appropriate charge is made by us for their decrease in value.
Payment and Delivery
All information relating to the available methods of payment and shipping can be found under the relevant menus at www.eventlights.at.
Delivery is usually done within 2-4 working days of receipt of payment. If the delivery is delayed we contact the customer and obtain his agreement to a later delivery date. If the customer does not agree with this he has the right to terminate the contract.
Our employees have a duty to observe confidentiality pursuant to the Datenschutzgesetz (Austrian Data Protection Act). The customer recognizes that the use of information relating to the customer contained in the contract is stored and processed for the purposes of our accounting and customer records. The information is used by us for the fulfilment of statutory requirements and the processing of payments. Customer information is not passed on to third parties except where this is absolutely necessary for the performance of the contract. Our contractual partners are informed about our data protection provisions and are under obligations to us in relation to the same.
Reservation of Title, Warranty, Liability, Guarantee
Until full payment is made for the goods ordered, the goods remain our property. Before the goods are fully paid for, the customer is not permitted to pledge, transfer by way of security, or grant other rights over the goods to third parties. The statutory provisions in relation to warranties apply. Notice of any defects which occur are to be given upon delivery if possible, or after they become apparent. In the event of a justified complaint in respect of defects, either replacement will be made or the purchase price refunded.
Except in relation to personal injury, Eventlights is only liable for damage which is caused intentionally or by gross negligence. Slight or gross negligence must be proven by the injured party unless a consumer contract is concerned. Compensation for consequential damage (caused by defects) and other property damage, economic loss and damage to third parties is excluded. Eventlights carries out its services with the greatest of care, but is not liable for services provided by or obtained from third parties.
Applicable Law, Jurisdiction
To the extent that it is not contrary to mandatory law, the contracting parties agree to the application of Austrian law. If the other contracting party is a consumer, the mandatory provisions of law of the country in which he has his usual residence also apply to this contract. If the other contracting party is a business person, it is agreed that the courts with local jurisdiction for the place in which our head office is situated have jurisdiction over disputes arising out of the contract. If the other contracting party is a consumer, he can make claims against Eventlights either in Austria or in the courts of the contracting state in whose territory he is domiciled. If the other contracting party was domiciled in or had his usual place of residence in Austria at the time the contract was made, then claims of the other contacting party against Eventlights can only be made in the courts of Austria. The place of performance for all obligations arising out of the contract is the place in which our head office is situated.
