Furthermore, the goods may be subject to import duties which the customer shall pay additionally upon receipt of the goods.

(3) The customer has to pay shipping and handling, which may depend on order value and the delivery location

(4) Purchase price, along with shipping and handling charges are immediately payable, without deduction.

(1) Payment will be carried out according to the customer´s choice of either advance payment or via Paypal and always in advance. cropcircle-archive reserves the right to limit the method of payment chosen by the customer depending on order value, shipment region or other objective criteria.

(2) In case of the method of payment chosen by the customer not being practicable, where cropcircle-archive has met its contractual obligations, in particular if it is the case that a direct debit from the customer´s account is not possible due to a lack of funds or provision of wrong information, then the customer shall reimburse any additional costs incurred by cropcircle-archive or a third party which carried out the transaction.

(3) cropcircle-archive is entitled to make use of the services of trustworthy third parties for the handling of the payment:

a) If it comes to a default of payment of the customer, cropcircle-archive is allowed to assign its claims to a debt collection agency and transfer the personal data required for the handling of payments to these third parties.

b) In the case of intervention of third parties in the handling of payments, then payment in relation to cropcircle-archive only counts as made if the amount has been provided contractually to the third party, so that the third party can dispose of it as it sees fit.

(1) Information, drawings, figures, technical data, specifications of weight, measurements and services, which are contained in brochures, catalogues, newsletters, ads or price lists only are of an informational nature.

Limitation of Liability

In addition, cropcircle-archive also bears unlimited responsibility for damages in cases of mild negligence resulting in loss of life, bodily harm or damage to health. In the case of mild negligence and breach of an essential contractual obligation (cardinal obligation) cropcircle-archive´s liability is limited to the payment of the foreseeable, typically occurring damage. Liability of cropcircle-archive according to the German Product Liability Act remains unaffected by the abovementioned provisions.

(2) As far as liability of cropcircle-archive is excluded or limited in these general terms and conditions then the same applies for personal liability for damages on the part of employees, representatives and agents of cropcircle-archive.

Right of cancellation
(1) Right of cancellation . If you are a consumer within the meaning of § 13 of the German Civil Code [Bürgerliches Gestzbuch, BGB], you may withdraw your contractual statement within two weeks in writing (e.g. by letter, fax or e-mail) without stating a reason, or – if the goods have already been delivered to you before the expiry of this time limit – by returning the goods. The time limit begins after receipt of this instruction in writing, but not before the goods are delivered to the recipient (in the case of recurring deliveries of similar types of goods, not before the first part delivery is received) and also not before we have fulfilled our obligations to provide information as per § 312c Section 2 BGB in association with § 1 Sections 1, 2 and 4 of the German Civil Code Ordinance on the Duty to provide Information to Consumers [BGB-Informationspflichten-Verordnung, BGB-InfoV] as well as our obligations in accordance with § 312e Section 1 Clause 1 BGB in association with § 3 BGB-InfoV. In order to meet the time limit for the cancellation it is sufficient to send off the notice of cancellation or the goods in good time.

The notice of cancellation or return of the goods should be addressed to:

Bertold Zugelder c/o zwo26 Beethovenstr. 1a 97070 Würzburg Deutschland Germany

or by e-mail to:

This right of cancellation does not exist in the case of contracts for the delivery of goods that cropcircle-archive has manufactured on the basis of the Customer’s specifications or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the Customer. In particular this applies to products that are printed at the request of the Customer. The Customer knows that by ordering such products he/she is giving precise instructions for the goods to be manufactured.

(2) Consequences of cancellation . In the event of an effective cancellation, each party shall return to the respective other party the benefits received and issue any benefits involved (e.g. interest). If you are unable to return the benefit you have received in full or in part or can only return it in an impaired condition, you may have to pay us compensation for its value in this respect. This does not apply to the relinquishment of items if the impairment of the item can only be ascribed to your inspection of it – for example, as might have been possible for you in a retail outlet. For the rest, you can avoid the obligation to pay compensation for the value of an impairment that has arisen as a result of beginning to utilise the item for its intended use by not making use of the item as your property and refraining from doing anything that would have an impact on its value. You must return items which can be sent by parcel post at your own risk. You must cover the cost of the return if the goods as supplied are in accordance with what was ordered and if the price of the item to be returned does not exceed 40 euros or, if the price of the item is higher, if at the time of cancellation you have not yet paid for it in full or made a contractually agreed part payment. In any other case the return of the goods is free of charge to you. Items which cannot be sent by parcel post will be collected from you. Obligations to make payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The time limit begins for you at the point at which you send off your notice of cancellation or the item; for us it begins at the point at which we receive it.

If the whole contract is cancelled, cropcircle-archive will also bear the costs of dispatching the goods to the consumer (costs of sending).

End of the cancellation instructions.

Copyrights to Print Designs, Release from Liability
(1) If the Customer provides his/her own motif or otherwise influences the product (personalisation of text), the Customer assures cropcircle-archive that the text and motif are not subject to any rights held by third parties. In such case the cost of any breaches of copyright, personal rights or rights to the use of a name will be borne solely by the Customer. The Customer also assures cropcircle-archive that by personalising the product he is also not breaching any other rights held by third parties.

(2) The customer releases cropcircle-archive from all demands and claims which are made due to the infringement of such third-party rights, as far as the customer is responsible for the breach of duty. The customer shall reimburse cropcircle-archive for all defense costs and other damages resulting from any such action.

Technical and Design Deviations
When fulfilling the contract, we expressly reserve the right to deviate from the descriptions and information in our brochures, catalogues and other written and electronical documents with respect to material, color, weight, measurements, design or other features, as far as these can be considered reasonable for the customer. Reasonable cause for change may result from fluctuations customary in trade and technical production processes.

Data Protection
cropcircle-archive uses personal data of the customer for appropriate purposes and according to statutory regulations. The personal data given (i.e. name, e-mail address, mailing address, bank details) for ordering products are used by cropcircle-archive for fulfillment and handling of the contract. This data is treated confidentially by cropcircle-archive and is not given to any third parties who are not part of the ordering, delivery and payment procedures. The customer shall be entitled to access information on the personal data which cropcircle-archive has saved about them free of charge. Moreover, they are entitled to the correction of incorrect data, and the blocking and deletion of their personal data, insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain such data.

Place of Jurisdiction – Place of Fulfillment – Choice of Law
(1) Place of fulfillment for all services is the place of business of cropcircle-archive in Würzburg.

(2) As far as the customer is a merchant according to the Commercial Code of Germany (HGB), a legal entity under public law or special fund under public law, then Würzburg is the place of general jurisdiction. In such case, cropcircle-archive is also entitled to sue the customer according to the opinion of cropcircle-archive at their resident court. The same applies if the customer does not have their place of general jurisdiction in Germany, relocates their place of residence or habitual residence abroad after conclusion of the agreement, or their place of residence or habitual residence is unknown at the time of filing of an action.

(3) According to these general terms and conditions the agreement is exclusively subject to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. Recourse to the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded. As far as the client is a consumer according to § 13 of the German Civil Code and is generally not resident in Germany, the mandatory regulations of this country remain unaffected.

(4) If individual provisions of these general terms and conditions are ineffective or oppose the statutory regulations, the rest of the agreement remains unaffected.
