Conditions of Use


Lava Vakuumverpackung



Section 1 - Scope of the terms and conditions

1. The terms and conditions below apply to all deliveries, services and offers made Landig + Lava GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as the Lava Company) supplied via this online shop on a contractual basis. We hereby declare that purchaser’s acknowledgements referring to the purchaser’s own terms and conditions will not be recognised. Any divergences from our own terms and conditions are valid only if they are confirmed by us in writing


Section 2 - Offer and contract

1. All offers are subject to change. All information on this website is given without guarantee. We reserve the right to make technical changes, and are not liable for any typos or errors. All items are without decoration.
2. Lava reserves the right to make changes to design or technical changes. Divergences in output data of up to 5 % at the top and bottom of the range are possible with regard to manufacture. Commissions and orders only count as accepted if they have been confirmed by us in writing. The acknowledgement of order created by the shop systems and sent to the customer by email does not in this case count as automatic acceptance of the order, but rather as a summary. An order will only count as accepted if no order acknowledgement giving information to the contrary is made within 5 working days after receipt of order and/or the goods ordered are dispatched


Section 3 - Notice of revocation

1. Right of revocation

You can send your notice of revocation within 1 month, without giving any reasons, in text form (e.g. by letter, fax or email) or if you have received the goods before the period of notice has expired – also by returning the goods. The period begins upon receipt of this notification in writing, but not before receipt of the goods at the receiver (in the case of recurring deliveries of goods of the same kind, not before the first part delivery has been received) and also not before we have performed our duty to provide information in accordance with Article 246 Section 2 combined with Section 1 paragraphs 1 and 2 of the Introductory Act to the German Civil Code (Einführungsgesetz zum Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch, EGBGB ) and our duties in accordance with Section 312g paragraph 1 sentence 1 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, BGB) combined with Article 246 Section 3 EGBGB.
To keep to the period of notice, it is sufficient to send the revocation or the goods in good time. The revocation is to be addressed to:


Landig + Lava GmbH & Co. KG
Lava Vakuumverpackung
Valentinstrasse 35-1

D - 88348 Bad Saulgau (Germany)

Fax: 0049 - 7581 - 48959-29
Email: verkauf@la-va.com


2. Consequences of revocation

In the case of a valid revocation, goods and payments mutually received and any performance received or emoluments taken (e.g. interest) are to be compensated for. If you cannot return to us the goods and payments received or compensate for performance (e.g. for use and employment) or can return or compensate for these only in part or in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us accordingly for loss of value. You need only compensate us for the deterioration of goods received and for emoluments taken to the extent that the emoluments or deterioration are caused by treating the goods in a manner that exceeds testing the qualities and manner of function of the goods. "Testing the qualities and manner of function" is understood to cover the testing and trying out of the goods in question as would be possible and customary in a retail store. Items shippable by parcel are to be returned at our risk. You are obliged to bear the regular costs of return shipment if the goods delivered correspond to the goods ordered and if the price of the goods returned does not exceed 40 euros or if, in the case of a higher price for the goods, you had not at the time of revocation rendered consideration or made a contractually agreed part payment. In all other cases, the return shipment is free of charge. Items that cannot be shipped by parcel will be collected from your premises. All reimbursement obligations must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period of notice will begin for you with the dispatch of your revocation statement or of the goods, and for us with the receipt of these.


3. Important information on the return or collection of goods

We (Landig + Lava GmbH & Co. KG) would be very pleased to collect goods from you. After receiving your notification by email at verkauf@la-va.com or by fax on +49 7581 48959-29, we will collect the goods from you with our shipping partner DHL, unless another corresponding arrangement has been made.
We request that you enclose a copy of the purchase document or respectively of the delivery document or invoice. In addition, we request that you have the goods well-packed (well protected, as delivered) for collection.


4. Exclusions and special information

There is no right to revocation for the delivery of goods made to customer specifications or clearly customised for personal requirements, or for goods that due to their properties are not suitable for return shipment or can decay quickly or whose use-by date has been exceeded.
Examples of such goods are: special vacuum appliances with special technical specifications, special vacuum bags with customised dimensions, or goods clearly produced to customer requirements (e.g. a vacuum appliance with customer logo).
