6.10 Vouchers will not be refunded should you return all or part of the goods or should goods can only be delivered in part.

If the new delivery period is not acceptable to you or the goods are no longer available within the new delivery period or at all, both contracting parties are entitled to withdraw from the contract with regard to the goods concerned; in this case we will immediately refund any consideration already paid. The statutory rights of the contracting parties shall remain unaffected.
7.4 In cases of force majeure, the delivery period shall be extended accordingly. Force majeure includes strikes, lockouts, official interventions, energy and raw material shortages, transport bottlenecks, operational hindrances for example due to fire, water, machine damage and lightning strikes and all other hindrances which DARADO could not foresee and for which it is not responsible. You will be informed immediately by DARADO of the start and end times of such delivery hindrances.
7.5 DARADO reserves the right to withdraw from the contract if the delivery fails three times for reasons for which DARADO is not responsible. Payments already made by you will be refunded by DARADO in this case. The legal rights of the contracting parties remain unaffected.
