GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS – Kunst ab Hinterhof
- 1 Scope
For all business relations between SCHÖNE SACHEN GMBH, trading under the brand name “KUNST AB HINTERHOF” (hereinafter KAH), and the buyer the following terms and conditions – in the version valid at the time the order is placed -shall apply exclusively; deviating terms and conditions of the customer which are not explicitly acknowledged by KAH in writing shall not be binding for KAH even if such terms and conditions are not explicitly opposed.
- 2 Conclusion of contract
Your order constitutes an offer to conclude a sales contract with us. If you place an order with KAH, we will send you an email that confirms the receipt of your order and lists the order’s details (confirmation of order). This confirmation does not constitute acceptance of your offer, but informs you that your order has been received. A sales contract shall come into effect only when you pick up your ordered item at our shop or we despatch it to you. Products from the very same order, which are not listed in that shipping confirmation, will not be part of the sales contract, neither will be one created for them. Products that have been ordered to be picked up from our shop will be reserved for two weeks from the date the order is placed. Should the ordered product not be picked up or paid within this time, it shall be returned to the available inventory.
- 3 Revocation and return delivery
You buy without any risk when you order your products online: Within two weeks you can revoke your contract with us without citing any reasons by writing an email or letter informing us of your revocation or by sending your purchased item(s) back to us. The timely dispatch of your revocation or the goods shall be deemed sufficient for compliance with these terms. Your right of revocation can be exercised for a maximum of two items per customer per calender quarter. Your revocation is to be addressed to Kunst ab Hinterhof, Kuffnergasse 7, 1160 Wien or KaH@kunstabhinterhof.at.
Special designs and customised products (e.g. framed orders diverging from the standard that have been produced to the customers explicit specifications and large formats with an edge length above 2 metres) as well as bare art prints (unframed and not laminated) are explicitly excluded from the right of revocation, in the case of the latter because their delicate quality makes them unfit for a return delivery.
In case of a rightful revocation, both contract parties are obliged to return mutually received benefits. If you cannot return the received products fully, partly or only in an impaired condition, you shall have to pay compensation for the value accordingly. This does not apply if the deterioration of the product is attributed to its inspection as it would have been possible in a shop. Incidentally you can avoid the obligation to pay compensation for a decrease in value if you refrain from making use of the product like its owner and from all actions that may affect its value. In case of laminations and frames these actions include e.g. scratch marks, stains, cracks and tears, all of which constitute a loss of total value. All goods must be returned using the original protective packaging. The customer shall bear the costs of the return delivery.
- 4 Delivery
If you have chosen a delivery method, the purchased product will be shipped to the specified delivery costs within the next 10 working days. Estimated delivery times are, however, non-binding. It is also possible to pick In certain exceptional cases or by prior arrangement, and subject to separate delivery payment arrangements, delivery of screens or plates exceeding format A2 as well as sculptures can be delivered in person to the customer’s address or an address specified by the customer.
The buyer is obliged to inspect the delivered product immediately upon delivery. In case obvious damage to the product is discovered only after acceptance of delivery, the buyer is obliged to report the damage to us within five days of acceptance of delivery in default whereof further claims asserting defects are no longer justified.
- 5 Due date, payment and late payment
The customer is to pay the full purchase price in advance per bank transfer, PayPal or credit card. Purchase against invoice can be authorised by KAH for business customers after examination by KAH in the individual case.
If the buyer is in default of payment, KAH shall have the right to withdraw from the contract without further notice and without citing any reasons. Any damage caused by late payment shall be the sole liability of the buyer in default.

Otherwise a statutory warranty period of 2 years is granted from the date of the handover of the goods. Within this period all defects subject to statutory warranty regulations will be rectified free of charge. Ecluded from the warranty are damages attributable to natural tear and wear, improper treatment or lacking or incorrect care or storage. Please refer to section 4 of our general terms and conditions for more information.
Paintings, prints, photographs, laminations and frames mus never be exposed to direct sunlight as a whole nor in parts, nor hung above heating or kept in conditions that exceed the normal degree of humidity found in living areas. This makes them unsuitable for outdoors, basement rooms, bathrooms or kitchens. Laminations with UV protective foil as well as wooden frames and acrylic glass are extremely susceptible to scratches and stains and must therefore be handled exclusively wearing protective gloves or a similar protection.
