Delivery times begin with the date of confirmation of the order by ASE however not before the receipt of all documents or data required and the agreed down payment for the execution of the order.


§ 5 Shipment and transfer of risk

1.) Place of fulfillment and performance is the place of business of ASE.

2.) In case of customers who are entrepreneurs, the risk of accidental loss or deterioration of the goods, passes to the customer upon delivery. In case of shipment purchase, it passes with the transfer of the goods to the shipper, to the carrier or to any other person or institution ordered to execute the sending. This applies also if ASE committed to undertake the installation services. If the goods have to be collected at ASE or the shipment is delayed upon request the risk of accidental loss or deterioration passes with the notification of readiness for shipping.

3.) In case of customers, who are consumers, the risk of accidental loss or deterioration of the goods passes over to the client even in case of shipment purchase upon delivery of the goods.

4.) If the customer refuses to accept the goods or the service even though ASE is offering them under the terms of the contract this means that the buyer is in default in accepting delivery. The same applies to the delivery.

2.) In case of contracts with entrepreneurs ASE reserves the ownership until fulfillment of all claims of the current business relationship. A transfer of the ownership of reserved goods to a third party shall only be permitted if it arises in the ordinary course of business of the company and the company reserves the ownership of the reserved goods until the payment of all the claims of the business relationship with third parties. The entrepreneur is not entitled to pledge reserved goods or to transfer their ownership to third parties for security purposes.

3.) The entrepreneur is entitled to resell the goods during the ordinary course of business. He assigns to ASE all claims to the value of the final invoice amount incurring to him from reselling towards third parties. ASE hereby accepts such assignment. The entrepreneur is entitled to collect the assigned claims until such right is revoked. Revocation is only allowed if the entrepreneur is in payment default.

4.) The processing and handling of the goods by an entrepreneur shall always take place in the name and on order of ASE. If the reserved goods are combined with other goods not belonging to ASE, such that they become an essential element of a new thing, ASE becomes joint owner of the new thing corresponding to him the value of the delivered goods by ASE in relation to the other processed objects. The same shall apply when the goods are mixed with other articles not belonging to ASE. In both cases the entrepreneur will store the articles for ASE free of charge. The share of the joint ownership is determined by the relation of the invoice value of the reserved goods and the sales value of the new good. For the reselling of the new article, paragraphs 1 and 2, which assign the obligations of the ownership share of ASE of the common thing, are applicable.

§ 7 Warranty, obligation to inspect and notify defects, Apple repairs

If ASE provides the customer with tests or samples or receives them from the latter, analyses, DIN standards, ISO standards, regulations, other domestic and foreign quality standards or other information on the quality or services of the goods, these will serve only for the detailed description of the services to be rendered by ASE. A guarantee based on these characteristics is not the case. The same applies to public statements, promotion or advertising by ASE. Furthermore, ASE is particularly not obliged to examine if the good is suitable for the intended purpose of the customer.

  • If operating and maintenance instructions of ASE are not followed, if modifications are made to the goods (also to own goods), parts replaced or consumables used, which do no correspond with the original specifications any claims for defects in the products shall lapse unless the customer refutes a reasonably substantiated claim that the defect was caused by one of these circumstances.

  • If the customer is a business purchaser in the sense of the German commercial code, the purchaser shall be obliged to check the delivery or service immediately after receiving it. In this case, the purchaser shall be obliged to notify the vendor of any defects in writing without delay, but at the latest within seven days after the receipt of the delivered object. The timely dispatch shall be sufficient to observe the deadline. Hidden defects must also be reported immediately after they have been discovered. Otherwise the good is considered approved and the service is considered accepted. The customer shall bear the full burden of proof in relation to all preconditions for making a claim, particularly for the defect itself, date of detection of the defect and the punctuality of the complaint. Broader obligations under § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) remain unaffected.

  • In case, that delivered goods, also by third parties, are installed by ASE the acceptance by the customer has to take place immediately. In case of refusal, acceptance will be deemed as declared, if the customer operates the delivered and installed goods. Except for hidden defects, claims based on defects shall be excluded after acceptance of the installation.

  • If the customer fails to exercise the rights of recourse against third parties, processes defective goods without prior quality inspection or delivers the defective goods he is complaining about, to third parties without giving ASE the opportunity to verify the reported defects, all claims for damages shall be null and void. The same applies to the consequences of inappropriate or incorrect use of the goods, incorrect installation and setting into operation by the customer or third parties, inappropriate modifications to the delivered products, natural wear and tear as well as incorrect or negligent handling.

  • For entrepreneurs the subsequent fulfillment takes place in case of justified punctual complaint after decision by ASE for rectification or replacement delivery.

  • Consumers have the choice in case of justified punctual complaint between rectification or replacement delivery. However ASE is entitled to refuse the type of the selected subsequent fulfillment if it is only possible at unreasonable costs and if the other type of subsequent fulfillment remains without considerable disadvantages for the consumer.

  • If the subsequent fulfillment is unsuccessful the customer can chose upon a reduced remuneration or withdrawal from the contract. Subsequent fulfillment shall at the earliest be deemed as failed with the second unsuccessful attempt. For minor defects the customer has not the right of withdrawal.

  • If the customer chooses to withdraw from the contract due to a defect after a subsequent fulfillment, he shall hold no additional entitlement to compensation for the defect. If the customer chooses right to compensation after failed subsequent fulfillment, the goods shall remain with him, if this is reasonable. The compensation shall be limited to the difference between the purchase price and the value of the good in faultless condition. This does not apply if ASE caused the infringement of the contract intentionally.

  • IMPORTANT: All repair services are based on damages out of the manufacturer warranty. The repair service does not take place within the context of Apples warranty and is not authorized by Apple. Provided that the repair takes place, Apple´s warranty will expire. For the repair aren´t used any spare parts delivered by Apple.

  • The warranty period of ASE and their associated repair centers is 90 days for repair services and swap devices. The 90 days are valid for the period since the outgoing of the good/goods from ASE until the renewed entry of the goods to the ASE as a complaint. For complaints shall be filled in a new repair order and the complaint field shall be selected by clicking on. Unjustified complaints are processed as normal services cases with handling and checking charges of at least 35,00 euros.

  • The warranty period is two years from delivery of the goods for consumers and one year for entrepreneurs. For used goods the warranty period is one year for consumers and for entrepreneurs from delivery of the goods. A reduction of the legal periods does not apply for claims according to the German Product Liability Act (ProdHaftG) in case of intention and gross negligence and damage to life, body and health attributable to ASE, in case of non-fulfillment of independent warranties and if ASE can be accused of malice. The warranty obligation for other parts of de delivered goods not affected by the subsequent fulfillment shall not be extended by the subsequent fulfillment.

  • If the customer receives defective installation instructions, ASE is merely obligated to supply defect-free instructions, if the defect of the instructions prevents proper installation or operation.

  • The right of third parties to claim for compensation does not apply if ASE doesn´t get after the required time or opportunity to carry out the necessary subsequent performance, after notification of the defects. The customer has the right to remove the defect by himself or by third parties and demand the refund of the necessary costs only in urgent cases endangering operation safety and for the prevention of disproportionate damage or if ASE is in delay with the removal of the defect.

  • The customer shall bear additional costs which arise if the delivered goods should be brought to a place which is not the place of performance.

  • Compensation claims of an entrepreneur against ASE prescribe at the latest one year after delivery of the goods or acceptance of the work. Paragraph 1 S. 2 shall apply correspondingly.

  • The one year limitation period applies for consumers only for used goods, otherwise applies the statutory periods.

Rights to withhold or any other rights to refuse performances can be claimed if and as soon as they are based on the same contractual relationship.

-Beginning of the revocation policy-

You can revoke your contractual statement within 14 days without giving any reason in writing (by post, fax, email) or if the goods have been sent to you before the end oft he deadline by returning the good.

The period begins after receiving this instructions in writing, but not however prior to the receipt of the goods by the recipient in case of delivery (similar goods are delivered on a recurring basis) this is in case of providing a service not before conclusion of the contract as well as not before fulfillment of our information obligation according to § 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 article 1 and 2 EGBGB as well as our obligations according to § 312 g article 1 S. 1 BGB in conjunction with article 246 § 3 introductory Act to the German Civil Code (Einführungsgesetz zum Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch, EGBGB).

To comply with the cancellation deadline it is sufficient to send off the revocation or return the good. The revocation must be sent to:

After Sales Europe GmbH

Hanauer Landstr. 291

60314 Frankfurt am Main

Fax: +49 (0) 69 – 6605566 – 99

E-Mail: ( müsste man einrichten, gibt es noch nicht! Alternative an

Consequences of revocation:

When the revocation is effective the received services or goods are to be returned without capital gain (e.g. interest). In the event that you cannot return the service received in whole or in part or only in a worse state, you are obligated to provide value compensation. You only have to compensate for the deterioration of the good and for lost value as far as the use and the deterioration can be attributed to a handling with the good, which get further than the testing of the properties and exceed the functioning. “Properties and functioning testing” refers the test and examination of each good as which is possible and usual in a retail shop*. Ready parcel items may be returned at our risk. You are responsible for covering the regular cost of return if the delivered goods corresponds to the goods ordered and if the price of the returned good does not exceed 40 euro or if in case of a higher price of the good at the time of the cancellation, has not yet provided the consideration or an contractually agreed part payment. Otherwise the return is free of charge for you. Not package shipping items will be picked up. Obligations to the refund of payments have to be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins with the sending of your cancellation notification or the sending of the good, for us with the receipt thereof.

  • After this, consumers should be given the possibility to hold in its hands the acquired goods as well as the possibility to make an examination of the main characteristics as it would be possible for a similar good in a shop. In case of consumer electronic devices (e.g. mobile phones) the right to examine is limited to a test call to check the voice quality or an unique access to the internet in order to check the connection speed. It does not however comprise the test of applications, which are not an essential component for the functionality as e.g. games. The same applies for personalization settings and configuration settings. Moreover it is not permitted to load external data on the devices for test purposes. We refer to therefore that through further tests or due traces of usage regularly occurs a deterioration of the good. In this cases, as the product cannot be resold as new, you have to pay the compensation for the lost value.

  • Please further note that it is not permitted to test whether in the shop or at home, objects, for which by intended use or the opening of the packaging is not usual in accordance with the common usage (e.g. sanitary products). This particularly affects so called in-ear-headphones, which due to this construction are worn in the ear and so come into contact with body fluids. If the packaging of the headphones is open, this must be valued as a use of the product. A withdrawal of this object only comes into consideration with the payment of compensation.

Attention: As our insurances are product-related, if the purchase contract is associated with the conclusion of an insurance contract, the (punctual) cancellation of the purchase contract extends also to the insurance contract. In case of an effective cancellation, the insurance cover ceases and we will reimburse you for any already paid fees. The reimbursement will be remitted without delay and no later than 30 days after receipt of the cancellation.
