  • Adding the offer to the shopping cart.
  • Application or registration and entering purchaser information.
  • Verification of address information.
  • Accepting the Terms & Conditions of Use.
  • Choice of payment method. For payment service providers, you will go directly to the page of the service provider and complete the payment there.
  • Clicking the ‘Buy’ button.
  • The confirmation page appears and you receive an email confirming your order.

The contract is made when you receive the order confirmation.

Prices, shipping costs, return costs

For individual customers within the EU and for business customers within Germany, all prices are gross prices. The amount of VAT and the total amount payable will be shown at checkout.

For business customers within the EU, all prices are net. Customers will need to pay the VAT using a reverse charge procedure. In order to do this, your VAT ID must be entered.

Customers outside the EU are responsible for paying the tax due in their home country.

In addition to the final prices, depending on the shipping method, any additional costs will be displayed before the order is sent. For digital licences that are available for download, there will be no shipping costs. Customers have the right to cancel the order. In this case, they must pay the return shipping expenses.


Terms of payment

Only the following payment options are available to customers: Bank transfer in advance, online payment with PayPal, or immediate transfer. Other payment methods are not available and will not be accepted. The amount billed should be transferred in advance to the specified account after receipt of the payment request, which will contain all the transfer information for and will be sent by email. Using a fiduciary service/payment service provider allows the provider and customer to process the payment with each other. In this case, the fiduciary service/payment service provider forwards the customer payment to the provider. More information is available on the website of the fiduciary service/payment service provider.

Customers are obliged to pay or transfer the amount shown to the account indicated on the invoice within 14 days after receiving the invoice.

Payment is due by the invoice date, with no fees deducted. After expiry of the payment period, which is based on the calendar date, customers shall be in default even if a payment reminder is not sent.


Delivery terms

In order to download licensed products, customers will be directed to a download link immediately after receipt of payment.

Print products are usually shipped around 5 days after payment is made. The lab will develop the prints only after payment is received. The company makes a commitment to ship items 10 days after payment is confirmed. The normal delivery period is 5 days, unless otherwise stated in the item description. The supplier will ship the order from its own warehouse once the entire order is available there. If there is a longer delay on the part of a supplier, especially one caused by force majeure or non-delivery by other suppliers, even though the order was placed in a timely fashion, the supplier is entitled to cancel the contract with the customer. The customer will be informed immediately. Any services received, especially payments, will be refunded.


Disclaimer

Customer claims for damages are ruled out, unless they arise for the reasons given below. This also applies to representatives and agents of the provider if customers make claims against them for damages. Ruled out are customer claims for damages due to injury to life, limb, or health or for essential contractual obligations which must be necessarily satisfied to achieve the purpose of the contract. Likewise, this does not apply to claims for damages due to gross negligence or wilful dereliction of duty by the supplier or its legal representatives or agents.

Furthermore, CDI is not liable, if individuals depicted do not agree with the planned publication. This also applies to the violation of other rights of third parties, in particular in relation to trademarks, works of art, buildings, and registered designs. In these cases, the rights holder must obtain specific authorisation for the use. If the creator of the image has a model release or property release available, this can be obtained from the copyright holder.


Cancellation Policy

The right to cancel applies only to consumers pursuant to §13 of the German Civil Code (BGB) and not for businesses, self-employed persons, or freelance professionals.

Before customers make a contract for digital download products, they must agree to waive cancellation rights, or otherwise no contract can be made.

Cancellation period is fourteen days

  • For a sales contract, from the date that you or any third party named by you, other than the shipper, has taken possession of the final item.

  • For a contract for several items that the consumer has ordered in a single order and which will be delivered separately, the cancellation period begins on the date that you or a third party named by you, who is not the shipper, has taken possession of the final item.

  • For a contract involving shipping in several partial shipments or units, the cancellation period begins on the date that you or a third party named by you, who is not the shipper, has taken possession of the final partial shipment or unit.

  • For a contract for regular delivery of items during a specified period of time, the cancellation period begins on the date that you or a third party named by you, who is not the shipper takes possession of the first item.

If several of these alternatives overlap, the latest time frame will have priority.
