Article 9. Order acceptance.

The description of our range of goods on the internet is only for the information of the customer. 9M does not accept contractual obligations, such as terms of a delivery guarantee, at this stage. At the time of placing an order with 9M, the customer expresses an intention to conclude a contract. The contract with 9M comes into force at the time 9M accepts an offer. The acceptance takes the form of dispatch of the goods ordered or by sending a confirmation of dispatch. In the case of 9M’s inability to accept an offer, this will be notified to the customer in electronic form.

Article 10. Withdrawal.

The costumer has the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day, a) (for a delivery) where the costumer or an entitled third party, who is not the carrier, took possession of the goods; b) (for a contract for several goods having been delivered separately, although being ordered together) where the customer or an entitled third party, who is not the carrier, took possession of the last goods; c) (for delivery of goods in several part-shipments or pieces) where the customer or an entitled third party, who is not the carrier, took possession of the last part-shipment or the last piece; d) (for a contract for regular delivery of goods over a definite period) where the customer or an entitled third party, who is not the carrier, took possession of the first goods. To exercise the right of withdrawal, the costumer must inform us through contact@codaxmusic.com of his decision to withdraw from this contract by an unequivocal statement. To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient that the customer sends his communication concerning his exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired. If the costumer withdraws from his contract, 9M shall reimburse all payments received from him, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from his choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by 9M), without undue delay and in any event not later than 30 days from the day on which 9M is informed about his decision to withdraw from this contract. 9M will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as the costumer used for the initial transaction, unless the costumer has expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, the costumer will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. 9M may refuse the reimbursement until 9M has either received the return or until the costumer has given proof that he returned the goods, depending on what is effected at an earlier date. The costumer has to return or consign the goods without any delay and in any case within 14 days after he informed 9M about his withdrawal. The deadline is observed when the costumer dispatches the goods prior to expiration of the 14 days deadline. The costumer has to pay for the direct return expenses. The costumer only has to pay for an eventual loss in value of the goods, if this loss in value has to be put down to an exposure not necessary for an examination of quality, nature and functionality of the goods. However, the right of withdrawal does not apply to a) contracts for the delivery of audio or videorecordings or computer software in sealed package, when the sealing has been removed after delivery; b) contracts for the delivery of newspapers, periodicals or magazines with the exception of subscription contracts; c) contracts for the delivery of goods that are not prefabricated and for those production an individual selection or instruction of the costumer is significant or that were definitely prepared to the costumer‘s specifications. The right of withdrawal expires for a contract of delivery of digital contents on a non physical data medium even when the trader started to execute this contract, after the consumer has expressed his definite agreement and at the same time acknowledged him noticing that he loses his right of withdrawal with the beginning of the contract‘s execution.

Article 11. Supply of goods ordered.

Unless agreed otherwise, 9M is obliged to deliver the goods ordered as quickly as possible to the address given by the customer. 9M is entitled to make partial deliveries, as long as the customer expects this. The costs for the separate deliveries will be charged by 9M to the customer in the respective stated amounts. All risks of shipping pass to the customer as soon as the goods are transferred from 9M to the commissioned supplier. Information about delivery dates are non-binding, unless 9M has informed the customer in writing in a particular case. If it is impossible to supply within the usual delivery period the customer is entitled to stipulate an additional period of three weeks and to withdraw from the contract if there is no positive result within this period. The withdrawal must be made in writing. No claim for compensation will be accepted unless 9M is guilty of gross negligence or deliberate intent. No claim for compensation will be accepted in those cases: 1) The product is no longer supplied by us; 2) Not to be published; 3) Available on hire only; 4) Not yet published; new edition in preparation, edition has been backordered; 5) Temporarily not in stock or out of print, delivery will take longer than 4 weeks, edition has been backordered; 6) Indefinitely out of print, reprint date not fixed edition has been backordered; 7) Permanently out of print, reprint not planned, edition has not been backordered; 8) Currently not in stock or out of print, available again within 4 weeks, edition has been backordered.

Article 12. Settlement date and payment of the purchase price.

Payment of the purchase price is due within 5 days of receipt of the consignment. Payment can be made either by direct debit, bank transfer or credit card. 9M is guided by the customer’s wishes with regard to payment methods. Goods supplied remain the property of 9M until complete payment of all claims outstanding against the customer has been received.

Article 13. Guarantee.

In the case of defects 9M is liable for defects which are present at the point of delivery, but liability is limited to the duration of the legal warranty period. The costumer is obliged to notify obvious defects within 14 days whereas it is sufficient to forward the claim on time; for non obvious defects a claim within the legal warranty period is sufficient. If 9M is responsible for a defect, 9M undertakes either to remove this defect or supply a replacement. 9M does not accept liability for claims which do not relate directly to the goods, or for lost earnings or other financial losses incurred by the customer unless due to malicious intent or gross negligence. This disclaimer does not apply to injuries to life, body or health.

Article 14. General.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck out and the remaining provisions shall be enforced. 9M's failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Changes may be made to these Terms of Use from time to time. These Terms of Use are governed in all aspects by the Laws of Portugal. Legal proceedings related to the matters set out in the Terms of Use shall be brought and adjudicated solely in the courts of Portugal.
