Prices and payment

Deliveries to entrepreneurs within the EU but outside Germany may be free of German VAT. If you wish to purchase goods as an EU entrepreneur outside Germany, please contact support@littlesun.com.

Retention of title

The goods delivered remain property of Little Sun until complete payment of the purchase price.

Set-off and retention right

You may not set off any counterclaim against claims of Little Sun unless the counterclaim is undisputed or has been finally and non-appealably established. You may only exercise a right of retention to the extent that such right is based on the same contractual relationship.

Right of rescission

We may rescind the contract if and as far as we are unable to receive correct and punctual delivery, stock is insufficient, or circumstances such as strike or force majeure prevent the delivery to you from being made. We will notify you immediately of the reasons for the rescission.

Warranty for defects

If goods are delivered with obvious damage to the packaging or to the goods, you are kindly asked to refuse acceptance and to immediately contact us in order to enable us to reserve our rights against the shipping company. Little Sun’s warranty for defects remains unaffected.

If you are an entrepreneur (Unternehmer) Little Sun’s warranty for defects expires after one year from delivery of the goods.

Liability for damage

Except from injury to life, body or health, and from breach of essential duties such as delivery and transfer of ownership of the goods, Little Sun’s liability for damage is limited to intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty.

You may use the model withdrawal form attached to your order, but it is not obligatory.

Effects of withdrawal

If you withdraw from the purchase 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 the purchase 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 the purchase contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired.

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.
