§11 Warranty

(1) The statutory warranty rights shall apply, unless expressly agreed otherwise.


(2) A warranty claim can only arise with regard to the properties of the products; reasonable deviations in the aesthetic properties are not covered by the warranty claim. Insofar as guarantees are given in addition to the warranty claims, you will find the exact conditions of these with the product. Possible guarantees do not affect the warranty rights.


(3) If you as a customer are an entrepreneur according to § 14 BGB, your claims for defects presuppose that you have fulfilled your statutory inspection and complaint obligations (§§ 377, 381 HGB). If a defect is discovered during the inspection or later, we must be notified immediately in writing. The notification shall be deemed immediate if it is made within two weeks, whereby the timely dispatch of the notification shall suffice to meet the deadline. Irrespective of this obligation to inspect and give notice of defects, you must notify us in writing of obvious defects (including incorrect and short deliveries) within two weeks of delivery, whereby the timely dispatch of the notification is also sufficient to meet the deadline. If you fail to duly inspect the goods and/or notify us of defects, our liability for the unreported defect shall be excluded.


§12 Offsetting, retention

You shall only be entitled to set-off if your counterclaims have been legally established or recognised by MARIANA PARVANOVA Art.


You are also entitled to offset if you assert complaints or counterclaims from the same purchase contract. Furthermore, you are only authorised to exercise a right of retention to the extent that your counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.


§13 Liability

(1) Exclusion of liability

MARIANA PARVANOVA Art and its legal representatives and vicarious agents shall only be liable for intent or gross negligence. Insofar as material contractual obligations (i.e. obligations whose fulfilment is of particular importance for achieving the purpose of the contract) are affected, liability shall also be assumed for slight negligence. Liability shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical of the contract.
 MARIANA PARVANOVA Art shall only be liable in the event of a grossly negligent breach of non-essential contractual obligations in the amount of the foreseeable damage typical for the contract.


(2) Reservation of liability

The above exclusion of liability does not apply to liability for damages resulting from injury to life, limb or health. The provisions of the Product Liability Act also remain unaffected by the exclusion of liability.


§14 Copyrights / Intellectual property

(1) With the purchase of a photographic print / a work of art from us, you only acquire ownership of it in rem. No other rights of use are granted.
