You must bear the regular costs of return if the delivered good was the good that was ordered and if the price of the item to be returned does not exceed EUR 59 or, in the event of a higher priced article, if you have not yet provided consideration or an agreed partial payment at the date of cancellation.

§ 6 Delivery terms
1. Deliveries are made by sending the articles from the warehouse to the delivery address supplied by the customer.
2. If customers have made a prepayment, the goods are reserved for the customer upon acceptance of the contract but are only shipped after receipt of the funds in the account of Mia Light GmbH. Customers are therefore requested to take this into account when ordering and to transfer the agreed prepayment in due time.
3. If customers have selected prepayment and the amount is not credited to the account of Mia Light GmbH within five days, Mia Light GmbH may withdraw from the contract. If Mia Light GmbH continues with the contract, the delivery dates stated at the time of order no longer apply. The delivery date mentioned originally shall be replaced by the date shown in the online shop for the product at the time the funds are received by Mia Light GmbH.
4. The availability of the goods and their shipment date can be found in the electronic catalogue. Each delivery is subject to the proviso that Mia Light GmbH receives their delivery in due time and as agreed; the following paragraphs apply.
5. Delivery shall be made provided there is sufficient stock. Should a product ordered by the customer not be available contrary to expectations and despite timely arrangements having been made for reasons beyond the control of Mia Light GmbH, Mia Light GmbH shall offer the customer a product equivalent in quality and price to the ordered product. The customer is not obligated to accept this product or the customer shall withdraw from the contract. Mia Light GmbH will notify the customer immediately if an article is not available and immediately refund any payments already made in the event of a withdrawal.
6. Liability for damages is excluded, if Mia Light GmbH delays delivery or a delivery becomes impossible for reasons that are the fault of Mia Light GmbH, and this is not due to wilful intent or gross negligence, except for liability for damages arising from injuries to life, body or health. The customer reserves the right to assert further claims.
7. If deliveries are delayed for reasons beyond the control of Mia Light GmbH (force majeure, third-party fault, etc), the delivery date will be appropriately postponed. The customer shall be informed thereof immediately. If the reasons for the delay continue for more than four weeks after contract conclusion, each party is entitled to withdraw from the contract.

1. The customer's claims against Mia Light GmbH in the event of defects shall be in line with the statutory provisions and within the statutory deadlines unless the regulations below provide differently. The statutory warranty period is currently two years for newly manufactured items.
2. Any damages that may arise as a result of improper actions or actions in breach of the contract by the customer during setup, connection, operation or storage do not constitute grounds for asserting a claim against Mia Light GmbH. Impropriety and breach of contract shall in particular be determined in accordance with the information provided by the manufacturer.
3. For purchases of used goods, the customer's claims shall prescribe one year from the date of receipt of the goods in the event of defects. Reducing the warranty period to one year does not apply if the replacement obligation is based on injury to body or health due to a defect that the seller is responsible for or intentional behaviour or gross negligence of the seller or their vicarious agents. Notwithstanding the above, the seller is liable in accordance with the Product Liability Act.
4. If the customer is a business owner and if the performance is ordered for the customer's commercial business, the customer's claims shall prescribe one year from the date of receipt of the goods in the event of defects.
§ 10 Repair costs / quotations
If goods are sent to Mia Light GmbH or an appointed repair shop for repair and the repairs relate to defects, damages or other changes or deterioration of the goods, which are not defects of quality giving rise to statutory warranty claims or guarantee claims against the manufacturer, the required fees for quotations, repairs and similar costs shall be paid by the customer to Mia Light GmbH.
§ 11 Liability
1. Mia Light GmbH shall have unlimited liability, on whatever legal grounds, in cases of injury to life, body or health, wilful intent or gross negligence, bad faith and guarantee promises and if the liability is in accordance with mandatory legal provisions such as the Product Liability Act.
2. Furthermore, the same shall be liable, on whatever legal grounds, as follows:
a) if an obligation essential to the contract (material contractual obligation) is negligently violated by Mia Light GmbH, the obligation to pay damages for property damage is limited to the foreseeable, typical average damage. Material contractual obligations are obligations imposed on the seller by the contract in accordance with its provisions to fulfil the purpose of the contract, the performance of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible and adherence to which the buyer is entitled to rely upon.
b) if an obligation not essential to the contract is negligently violated by Mia Light GmbH, the obligation to pay damages is limited to the order value.
