3. Supply and Availability
3.1. Product images
The goods which Pamono has on offer are shown in images on the website. Slight deviations between what is depicted and actual characteristics do not represent any shortcomings on the part of the ordered product. There may, for instance, be differences in color due to differing light conditions.
Whether or not we accept your order depends on several factors, including the availability of the product. Many of the goods on offer in our Web Shop are unique items; therefore, their availability cannot be guaranteed. We will immediately let you know if we cannot accept your order as a result of the dealer not being able to confirm the goods’ availability. If you as an individual or as an entrepreneur intend to place a large order, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your order so we can check availability.Jump to Top
4. Contract Finalization
4.1. Contractual partner
Your contractual partner is Pamono Inc, c/o APRIO, LLP, 5 Concourse Pkwy, Suite 1000 Atlanta GA 30328, USA.
If the place of delivery is outside the US the contractual partner is the Pamono GmbH, Uhlandstraße 175, 10719 Berlin, Germany.
The display of the products in the online shop does not represent a legally binding offer but a non-binding online catalogue. By clicking the "Buy now" button you submit a binding order for the goods contained in the shopping basket. The confirmation of the order is sent immediately after the order has been placed and does not yet represent any contractual acceptance. Its sole purpose is to provide you with an overview of your order request. You can also check on your order information and data in your password-protected user account.
Please ensure your order details are correct and you are logged in as a trade customer if this applies. Once your order is placed we are no longer able to make an adjustment to your invoice including VAT and/or sales tax charged, billing name or billing address.
4.3. Accepting the order
We accept your order by e-mailing you an order acceptance within five days. Only after receiving an acceptance of the order will any payments undertaken by the customer - including wire transfer - become due.Jump to Top
5. Right of Withdrawal by Pamono in case of non-availability after Conclusion of the Contract
In case the product, for reasons for which Pamono is not responsible, is not available at the dealer's with whom the matching cover transaction exists, then Pamono shall immediately inform the customer about this non-availability. In such an instance, Pamono may withdraw from the contract. Given a case of withdrawal, Pamono shall immediately reimburse the customer any payments already effected.Jump to Top
6.1. Price particulars
For all orders with Pamono.com the price of the offer listed at the time of the order is in US-Dollars, for Pamono.eu the price is in Euros and for Pamono.co.uk the price is in Pounds sterling. The prices specified are final prices in that they include in each case the statutory value-added tax and/or sales tax (if applicable) as well as other price constituents excluding the shipping cost and other local taxes and duties.
6.2. Vouchers, customer credit balances, sale promotions
Only one type of discounting can be redeemed with respect to each single order in the Web Shop. Vouchers can be used only once per order.

9. Delivery, Despatch and Costs
9.1. Delivery and despatch
The type and size of the product determines whether despatch is undertaken through the post or with a forwarding agent based in United States, Germany, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Canada, Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain and the United Kingdom. Pamono bears the delivery risk if the customer is the consumer.
9.2. Partial deliveries
Pamono is entitled to furnish partial deliveries.
9.3. Delivery and despatch costs
The goods are delivered at the costs indicated in the products on offer. They, in turn, depend on the number of orders at various dealers, delivery address and the weight/size of the goods. Any import sales tax as well as any customs and processing charges on goods being despatched into non-EU countries are not included in the delivery and dispatch costs and will have to be paid before the delivery takes place.
All islands, as well as the states of Hawaii and Alaska in the United States, are excluded from our standard shipping rates displayed online.
For any orders to these areas, please mail to email@example.com before placing an order to receive a shipping quote. Please note this list is not exhaustive and we may ask for additional shipping charges to remote areas.
9.4 Delivery time
The delivery times specified in the Web Shop are calculated from when the order is confirmed (contract finalization) or, in the case of a purchase involving advance payment, from the time that Pamono receives the payment.
Timely delivery of the Product to you is dependent on the prompt fulfillment by the subject dealer of the related transaction.
9.5. Rights of withdrawal given a default in delivery
Pamono will immediately inform the customer about the start and end of any hindrances making it impossible to keep to the specified delivery time. The customer may withdraw from the contract should the delay in delivery last for over four weeks. This right does not affect the customer's statutory right of cancellation (see Section 10 of these terms and conditions). Pamono may also withdraw from the contract given a delay in delivery of over four weeks. Given a case of withdrawal from the contract by the customer and/or by Pamono, we will immediately reimburse the customer any payments already effected.Jump to Top
10. Cancellation Terms & Conditions
From when the cancellation terms & conditions apply
Right of cancellation
You may withdraw from any contract formed pursuant to these terms without any reasons being given within two days.
The cancellation period is two days from the date on which you or a third party nominated by yourself - but who is not the forwarding agent (the "Third party") - takes possession of the goods.
For a contract concerning a number of different goods which you ordered within a single order, the above cancellation period begins first on the date when you yourself or the third party took possession of the last product.
For a contract concerning a product subdivided into several partial consignments or single items, the above cancellation period begins only on the date when you yourself or the third party took possession of the last partial consignment or the last item.
To exercise your cancellation right you need to inform us Pamono Inc in an unequivocal, written statement (e.g. a letter sent through the post, telefax or e-mail) about your decision to cancel this contract: firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail Pamono Inc. PO Box 3514 PMB 11745 New York, NY 10008, United States. For this, you can use the non-prescribed, attached specimen cancellation form.
To comply with the cancellation period, it is sufficient in itself to send the notification relating to exercising one's right of cancellation prior to expiry of the cancellation period.
Please note that orders of products that are made to order cannot be canceled once their production has been started. As such, the right to return does not apply to items that are made to order.
The consequences of cancellation
Should you cancel this contract, then we shall pay back to you all payments which we have received from you exclusive of the delivery and return shipping cost at the latest within seven days after your return shipment was received back in its original condition. For this refund we will deploy the same means of payment which you used for the original transaction unless something different has been expressly agreed to with you.
The following applies to goods sent to you by post. You shall immediately return the goods to us – in all cases - within two days from the date on which you informed us about the cancellation of this contract, or to hand them over to someone that we have charged with accepting the goods. The time requirement is fulfilled if you despatch the goods prior to expiry of the two-day period. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods.
The following applies to goods not sent to you by post. We shall pick up the goods. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods. The costs are estimated, at a maximum, to be the amount corresponding to those associated with the return despatch of equivalent goods.

12. Warranty and Liability
12.1. How consumer law relates to this warranty
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights that vary from state to state. Other than as permitted by law, Pamono does not exclude, limit or suspend other rights you may have, including those that may arise from the nonconformity of a sales contract.
12.2. Limited warranty
Pamono warrants only that it has no reason to believe that the description of the goods as it appears on the Pamono website is false or misleading. This limited warranty expires automatically, without notice, twelve (12) months after your receipt of the goods in question.
12.3. Inspection duty
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE GOODS WHICH ARE SUBJECT OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY USED, NOT NEWLY MANUFACTURED. THEREFORE, TO AVOID PERSONAL OR PROPERTY DAMAGE IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU CAREFULLY INSPECT THE GOODS BEFORE USING THEM. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE IF THE GOODS INVOLVE ELECTRICITY OR WATER OR PREPARATION OR CONTACT WITH FOOD OR DRINK. THE INSPECTION MUST BE COMPLETE WITHIN SEVEN DAYS OF YOUR RECEIPT. IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THE GOODS, DO NOT USE THEM AND CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY.
12.4. Warranty limitations subject to consumer law
To the extent permitted by law, this warranty and the remedies set forth are exclusive and in lieu of all other warranties, remedies and conditions, whether oral, written, statutory, express or implied. PAMONO DISCLAIMS ALL STATUTORY AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND WARRANTIES AGAINST HIDDEN OR LATENT DEFECTS, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. In so far as such warranties cannot be disclaimed, Pamono limits the duration and remedies of such warranties to the duration of this express warranty and, at Pamono's option, the repair or replacement services described herein. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty (or condition) may last, so the limitation described above may not apply to you.
12.5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS WARRANTY AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, PAMONO IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONDITION, OR UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF USE; LOSS OF REVENUE; LOSS OF ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS ON CONTRACTS); LOSS OF THE USE OF MONEY; LOSS OF ANTICIPATED SAVINGS; LOSS OF BUSINESS; LOSS OF OPPORTUNITY; LOSS OF GOODWILL; LOSS OF REPUTATION; OR ANY INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS OR DAMAGE HOWSOEVER CAUSED INCLUDING THE REPLACEMENT OF EQUIPMENT AND PROPERTY.
The foregoing limitation shall not apply to death or personal injury claims, or any statutory liability for intentional and gross negligent acts and/or omissions.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
No Pamono agent or employee is authorized to make any modification, extension, or addition to this Warranty. If any term is held to be illegal or unenforceable, the legality or enforceability of the remaining terms shall not be affected or impaired.Jump to Top
13. Promotional Vouchers
13.1. Offer and validity of promotional vouchers
Pamono offers promotional vouchers (vouchers that cannot be bought but which we hand out with a certain validity period attached as part of publicity campaigns). Promotional vouchers are valid only for the period specified and can be redeemed only as part of an order. Single items may be excluded from the voucher promotion.

The value of the order must be equal to or exceed the promotion voucher amount. Remaining balances will not be refunded.
13.3. Redeeming promotional vouchers
Promotional vouchers can be redeemed only before conclusion of the relevant order. No subsequent offsetting is permitted. The credit balance of a promotional voucher is neither paid out in cash nor is interest paid on it but it does not expire except on the stated expiration date.
13.4. Passing promotional vouchers onto third parties and combining them
The promotional voucher cannot be transferred to third parties. Promotional vouchers cannot be combined.
13.5. Balancing the remaining amount
If a promotional voucher credit balance is not equal to or exceed the price of the order, the difference can be offset by normal payment methods.

These terms and conditions of sale are subject to the law of the State of Georgia, without regard to its choice of law provisions. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is hereby excluded
15.2. Changes to these terms and conditions
Pamono reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time given that the changes involved are not unreasonably prejudicial to the user.

The changes are deemed to be approved unless you object to them through an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
15.3. Ineffectiveness of individual clauses
The fact of a stipulation of these terms and conditions being ineffective does not impinge on the effectiveness of the others.
15.4. Place of jurisdiction
To the extent permitted by applicable law, the parties agree that the sole place of jurisdiction for resolution of any disputes arising from these terms and conditions shall be Atlanta, Georgia and each party consents to such jurisdiction.
Berlin is the sole place of jurisdiction for any disputes arising from these terms and conditions given that the customer has no national general place of jurisdiction, has moved his place of residence or customary location where he is to be found or Pamono is unaware of the place of residence or the customary location where the customer is to be found at the time of the legal proceedings.Jump to Top
