  • 13 Notes on hearing systems

(1) The hearing aids offered by MySecondear are preset before delivery to the customer by the hearing practitioner of MySecondEar UG. If the hearing aid is incorrectly set due to a faulty transmitted hearing test, the MySecondEar UG assumes no liability.

(2) The MySecondEar UG offers consultation dates with the hearing practitioner for the purpose of setting the hearing aids according to appointment. These dates then take place by phone or via video chat. The setting of the hearing aids is carried out during the appointment by remote maintenance. From the date of purchase of the hearing aids, three subsequent settings of the hearing system via remote maintenance are included in the purchase price over a period of six years. After the service expires, additional adjustments are subject to a fee from the buyer and amount to EUR 29 per service.

The consultancy dates offered by MySecondEar UG involve a great deal of effort. Should the customer not be able to observe the agreed date, he must cancel at least 24 hours in advance. If cancellations are less than 24 hours per appointment, the appointment is deemed to be missed and expires from the quota of the three hearing aid readjustments. Should the customer fail four consecutive appointments, he must pay the full price of EUR 29 for the consultation dates. In the event of failure for reasons which could not be demonstrably prevented by the customer, we show goodwill and meet this.

 

(3) Our digitally remotely adaptable hearing systems are unsuitable in the event of high hearing loss of the customer. A qualified MySecondEar employee assesses hearing loss. In the case of moderate to high-grade hearing loss, the first adjustment and impression of the ears takes place via a partner acoustic specialist. 

(4) The MySecondEar UG offers the customer to test one or two hearing aids of his choice up to 30 days without obligation. The test period begins from the receipt of the hearing system (s). The delivery date of the logistics service provider is considered to be the date of delivery of the devices to the customer. The testing of the hearing systems is a free transfer of hearing system. Prices can be found on the MySecondEar website. Should the customer decide to use a MySecondEar hearing aid during the test phase, the amount for the previous testing of the hearing aids will be deducted from the purchase price when the device is purchased. If no purchase occurs after testing, the tested items must be returned to MySecondEar UG within the period of 31 days, a fee of EUR 6,35 per missed day will be payable to MySecondEar UG from the second day of overdue payment.

(5) In case of hearing system failure, the customer can contact MySecondEar UG support. The MySecondEar sends a replacement hearing aid to the customer in the event of a detected defect. After receiving the replacement hearing aid, the customer sends the defective hearing aid back to the seller, the MysecondEar UG. Once the repair of the old hearing aid has been successfully completed, the hearing systems are replaced. Upon completion of the repair, the customer shall be obliged to return the replacement hearing aid of MySecondEar UG immediately upon receipt of the repaired hearing aid.

(6) If the hearing aid or components of the hearing system package and other articles are lost from the MySecondEar UG Shop, the warranty claims of § 9 of the GTC shall apply accordingly.

§ 14 Instructions for the disposal of batteries according to BattG

(1) A battery according to the Battery Act (BattG) is a consumable within the meaning of § 92 para. 1 BGB, because its intended use consists in consumption.

(2) Batteries and batteries are not to be disposed of in household waste. According to § 11 para. 1 S.1 BattG, owners of waste batteries have to enter them separately from the unsorted municipal waste. Waste equipment batteries shall be recorded exclusively through collection points connected to the common collection system or a manufacturer's own collection system.

(3) You can either return the batteries to us or return them free of charge in the trade. We are limited to batteries and rechargeable batteries that we run or have managed in our own assortment.

(4) The indicators such as the crossed garbage can on garbage bins mean that these batteries must not be disposed of in household garbage. The same applies to symbols like Pb (battery contains lead), Cd (battery contains cadmium), Hg (battery contains mercury).

§ 15 Applicable law and place of jurisdiction

(1) The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to the exclusion of the UN Sales Law (CISG). If you place the order as a consumer and have your habitual residence in another country at the time of your order, the application of mandatory legislation of that country remains unaffected by the choice of law made in sentence 1.

(2) If you are a merchant and have your registered office in Germany at the time of ordering, the exclusive place of jurisdiction is the registered office of the seller, Berlin. Otherwise, the applicable statutory provisions apply to local and international jurisdiction.

(3) Dispute resolution: The EU Commission has created an online dispute resolution platform. The platform serves as a point of contact for the out-of-court settlement of disputes concerning contractual obligations arising from online purchase contracts. Further information is available at the following link: Http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration body.
