General terms and conditions

§ 1 Scope, customer information

The following general terms and conditions shall govern the contractual relationship between FC-Moto GmbH & Co. KG and consumers purchasing goods via our online shop. Contract language is German.

§ 2 Conclusion of contract

  1. Our online offerings represent a non-binding offer for you to purchase goods.
  2. You can place one or more items in your shopping basket. You will be entering your personal information and decide on your preferred payment method, delivery modalities, etc. as part of the order process. You will be submitting a binding offer to purchase by clicking the order submission button. You can alternatively submit a binding order by phone or fax. The receipt confirmation you will automatically receive by email or fax does not constitute an acceptance of your offer to purchase.
  3. We have the right to accept your offer of purchase within 2-7 business days by sending you an order confirmation via email. Should this period named in the above sentence elapse without a reply, then your offer of purchase was rejected, which means you are no longer bound by your offer. In case of an order submitted by phone, a purchase contract comes into force if we accept your offer immediately. Should the offer of purchase not be accepted immediately, then you are no longer bound by your offer.
  4. The depiction of the products in the online shop do not constitute a legally binding offer, but instead a non-committal prompt to place an order. The offers and prices depicted in the online shop, brochures and other marketing material are therefore non-binding and subject to change without notice.

§ 12.1 Information according to § 18 Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG)

In the following we inform private households in accordance with the law (ElektroG) about the placing on the market, the return and the environmentally friendly disposal of electrical and electronic equipment.

1. Disposal

Due to the recyclable materials they contain, it is prohibited to dispose old electrical and electronic equipment in household waste.

Consumers are obliged under Section 18 of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act to ensure proper separation from household waste when disposing of old electrical and electronic equipment.

batteriegesetz_muelleimerIn order to mark the old equipment properly and to point out to consumers which appliances belong to the category of electrical and electronic equipment, they have been marked with the symbol of a crossed-out dustbin since 2005.

In addition, the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act regulates how the disposal and/or further processing of the collected old equipment is to be realised:

  1. No hazardous substances may be released during the collection and transport of the items.
  2. Hazardous substances are made harmless and raw materials are recovered for further processing by the specialised waste management companies.
  3. Suitable old appliances are reconditioned and reused.

These steps protect the environment and climate and conserve resources.

2. Used batteries and accumulators

If old appliances contain removable used batteries and accumulators, they must be separated from the appliance before being handed in at a collection point. This is not the case if the old appliances are handed over to public waste management authorities to be reconditioned there.

3. Return

Used electrical and electronic equipment can be returned to our shop in Würselen. FC Moto - Aachener Straße 21-23 - 52146 Würselen (Opening hours: Mon. - Fri.: 10:00 - 19:00 / Sat.: 10:00 - 18:00)

4. Obligation to register

We are a manufacturer or direct importer and have fulfilled our obligation to register with the ear foundation. Our suppliers have also fulfilled their registration obligation with the ear foundation.

§ 12.2 Important information for our customers regarding the disposal of used batteries:

As a distributor of vehicle batteries, we are obliged to charge you a deposit of 7.50 Euros including VAT per vehicle battery in accordance with § 10 BattG, if no old vehicle battery was returned to us by you at the time of purchase of a new vehicle battery. The deposit will be refunded to you upon presentation of a written or electronic proof of return in accordance with § 10 para. 1 cl. 4 BattG, which must not be older than two weeks at the time of presentation, or upon return of an old vehicle battery. You can either return the used vehicle battery directly to us free of charge (for address, see imprint) or to a collection point set up by the public waste disposal authority (possibly subject to a charge). If the used vehicle battery is not returned to the distributor collecting the deposit, the authorised collector who takes back the used vehicle battery is obliged, in accordance with § 11 para. 3 BattG, to confirm the return without deposit reimbursement to you as the end user in writing or electronically on request. In this case, please return the return confirmation to us together with the deposit voucher, stating your order number, so that we can refund the deposit amount to you as quickly as possible.

Please note:

We will refund the deposit after you have sent us the disposal receipt (e.g. by email, fax or letter - see imprint). As used vehicle batteries are hazardous goods, they must not be returned to us by post or parcel service under any circumstances.
You will be refunded the amount using the same payment method that you selected when placing your order.

§ 12.3 Waste oil disposal + return of packaging

According to the waste oil regulation, we are obliged to take back used oils for free. In this regard, this also applies to oil filters and oily wastes arising during oil changes. You can return the used oil in the quantity which corresponds to the quantity we bought.
