The following general terms and conditions of sale exclusively govern the contractual relationship between the user (hereinafter referred to as "you") and the merchant (hereinafter referred to as "our company" or "we"). Both parties accept these conditions without reservation. These general terms and conditions of sale are the only terms and conditions applicable and supersede all other terms and conditions, except in the case of an express prior written agreement. We assume that by confirming your order, you accept our general conditions of sale without reservation after having read them. These general terms and conditions of sale are important to you and our company because they serve to protect your rights as a valued customer and our rights as a company, and to establish an understanding between us.
There is only one way to place an order - via internet on our website: https://ereader.store (24 hours a day and 7 days a week).
You will receive an e-mail confirmation from us that we have received your order.
The ordering process consists of four (4) simple steps. Once you have selected the products you wish to purchase and confirmed your shopping cart, you must:
- Log in;
- select your shipping method;
- accept the Terms and Conditions by checking the appropriate box on the Order Summary page (titled "Order Summary");
- Select your payment method.
Once you have chosen your payment method, you must pay for your order. After your ordered goods have been delivered to your delivery address, the purchase contract concluded with our company is considered legally binding.
We always try to process orders as quickly as possible. Please note that order cancellation is possible only as long as the order is not yet in the status "Preparing for dispatch". After that, the order can not be canceled for logistical reasons. In this case, if a customer has changed his mind, the only way to get a refund would be to return the order to the warehouse (see the return part of this agreement).

8. the right of withdrawal.
This right expressly applies only to consumers, not to companies.
EU customers. Under EU law, if you are not satisfied with a product, you may return it within 14 days of receiving your order.
This return policy only applies to products that are returned in their original, fully functional condition (storage box, accessories, user manual, etc.). Products that are damaged, not in their original packaging, or whose packaging is worn beyond just opening the product will not be refunded. The returned product must be complete and in like-new condition (i.e. if you opened the box to inspect the product as you would in a store, you must do so without damaging or marking the product or box).
Note to smokers. We do not accept returns of products that have an intense odor of tobacco smoke. These products cannot be restocked and will be sorted out as totally damaged products! Please understand that such return will not be accepted and these products will be returned to the customer at the customer's expense.
Customers from non-EU countries can also return their goods within 7 days of receipt, but only if the goods do not correspond to the description, i.e. if they are wrong or defective.
Your item will be replaced free of charge for you.
The following situations are not included:
1. an item that you claim is not as described, but you cannot prove this.
2. the item is as described, but you no longer want it.
3. the defects of the item were caused by the customer.
Your right of withdrawal starts the moment your order is delivered (first day). Within this period you can return the goods at your own expense, enclosing your invoice and a completed and return bill.
Attention, we require that a purchased product is physically returned or at least sent to our warehouse within the time limit. Otherwise, the order will be considered completed and a return will not be possible.
The customer is responsible for the proper packaging of the returned goods. Any transport damage to the returned goods is at the risk of the customer and will be charged to the customer.
Exception Agreement on the sharing of shipping costs in the event of a return. The EU return/refund regulations require the merchant to reimburse the buyer for shipping costs in the event of a return. However, this regulation means the cheapest standard shipping such as Deutsche Post, whose insurance does not cover the value of our products and also does not allow the shipping of devices with Li-Po batteries (especially for shipping destinations outside Germany). When selling high value products with Li-Ion batteries, we are forced to offer the more expensive premium shipping with UPS or DHL International with high value insurance. This means that if a purchase is returned in full (if authorized), the additional cost of premium shipping will apply. For returns under 1200 EUR, a lump sum of 20 EUR will be deducted from the refund to cover these additional costs. For returns of higher value, this amount will be calculated and charged separately. This rule also applies to products that were originally delivered with the "free shipping" option, but were delivered with the premium shipping service. When you place your order in our store, you accept this agreement.
Any information stored on digital media (memory card, hard drive, etc.) that is returned to our company by the user will not be retained.
If tests need to be performed on the product as part of the right of withdrawal, our company will do its best to reimburse the user as soon as possible. This period will depend on the type of technical tests performed by the customer service department of the manufacturer of your product and will not exceed 14 days. The above deadlines are valid from the date of receipt of the order.
