8. Conclusion of contract
The description of our range of products on the Internet just serves to inform you. It is not an offer to conclude a contract. By sending an order to schott-music.co.uk, you offer to conclude a contract. You will receive an e-mail or other message confirming receipt of the offer. If individual information on the range of products on schott-music.co.uk is incorrect, schott-music.co.uk shall inform you separately after receipt of the order and submit an appropriate counter-offer to you. The contract with schott-music.co.uk shall be concluded with schott-music.co.uk’s acceptance of your offer. The acceptance of the offer shall be subject to the proviso that the goods are actually available. A separate confirmation of the acceptance of the offer by schott-music.co.uk to you shall not be necessary. If schott-music.co.uk cannot accept your offer, you will be informed electronically.
You shall be entitled to withdraw from the purchase within two weeks after receipt of the goods by returning the goods to schott-music.co.uk. To comply with this term, it is sufficient to despatch the goods in time. The charges for the return of the goods shall be your responsibility. In the case of withdrawal, schott-music.co.uk shall refund the purchase price, if already paid, to you. The return charges paid by schott-music.co.uk will be deducted from the purchase price. With refunds to foreign countries, the transfer fee will be deducted as well. In the case of a considerable deterioration in the quality of the goods or in the case of loss, you shall make good the corresponding reduction in value or loss to us if you withdraw from the purchase. If you have already paid the purchase price, schott-music.co.uk shall be entitled to deduct the reduction in value from the amount repayable.
The right of withdrawal shall be barred in the following cases:
- purchases of audio or video recordings or software if the delivered data carriers have been unsealed by you or the shrink-wrap is not intact any more;
- purchases of goods manufactured according to your specifications or of goods unsuitable for returns, such as antiquarian or archive items;
- purchases where right of withdrawal is expressly barred.
Due to price fluctuations in the industry, and the fact that schott-music.co.uk is dealing with a large number of suppliers, prices displayed are subject to change. schott-music.co.uk is working to ensure that as many of the prices as possible reflect the publishers’ current catalogue prices. Meanwhile you will be invoiced for the price applying at the date of sale, which may be different from the price quoted on the website. Such items are returnable and refundable. This does not affect your statutory rights.
When ordering goods from schott-music.co.uk for delivery overseas you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination.
Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information.
Additionally, please note that when ordering from schott-music.co.uk, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods.

This condition does not affect your statutory rights.
schott-music.co.uk will be responsible for any losses you suffer as a result of us breaching these conditions if the losses were reasonably foreseeable to both you and us when you commenced using the website, or a contract for the sale of goods by us to you was formed. We will not be responsible for any business loss (including loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure as well as lawyer’s fees) or any other indirect or consequential loss that is not reasonably foreseeable to both you and us when you commenced using the website or when a contract for the sale of goods by us to you was formed. schott-music.co.uk does not limit in any way its liability by law for death or personal injury caused from our negligence or breach of duty.
