Article 5 Delivery times
Our delivery time(s) are indicative and do not bind us. Exceeding the delivery time does not give you any right to compensation or to dissolve the contract.

Our guarantee is limited to the replacing of faulty copies, which means: misprints and books which are damaged immediately upon delivery. There will not be a misprint or damage if the misprint or damage is of only minor significance. You must return faulty copies to us within 14 days of receipt, misprints within 30 days. We have the right in the event of a return to either send a replacement copy to you, or to reimburse you the purchase price.

You are obliged to check these samples as carefully as possible as soon as possible and to return them to us corrected/approved. Approval of a sample means definite approval to produce the special edition in accordance with this sample. We are not liable for any mistakes detected, changes wanted, etc. after approval. If you make changes to the samples which cannot be traced back to mistakes on our part, we can charge you for the costs. All intellectual property rights relating to a special edition belong to us. Any intellectual property rights to which you may be entitled you hereby transfer to us in advance and we accept them in advance. Insofar as necessary, you must, moreover, fully cooperate on our first request with a further transfer of all related intellectual property rights.
