4 Collecting samples and sample material

The customer declares to compensate Adversis Pharma GmbH for all loss or damage and to indemnify Adversis Pharma GmbH against all claims for damages by third parties brought against Adversis Pharma GmbH based on the fact that the customer has provided samples that he did not receive in a legal manner.

5 Analysis and notification of the test results

5.1 As far as sampling is not supervised by Adversis Pharma, Adversis Pharma GmbH shall refer to the data provided for this purpose.
5.2 Verbal information and explanations of results by representatives of Adversis Pharma GmbH shall not be binding.
5.3 Adversis Pharma GmbH shall begin the commissioned analysis immediately after receiving the sample material or, in the case of payment in advance, after receipt of payment and samples. The test results, which may be presented in a simplified form, shall be made available to the customer in electronic form on an Internet page accessible exclusively to the customer. In addition, the customer may request the analysis results from Adversis Pharma GmbH in writing or by fax.
5.4 Submitted sample material shall become property of Adversis Pharma GmbH. Adversis Pharma GmbH shall destroy the sample material sent in immediately after completion of the analysis or an order.

6 Warranty and liability

Adversis Pharma GmbH shall not be liable for the usability of the samples submitted or the result resulting therefrom.

6.5 If the analysis is defective for reasons for which Adversis Pharma GmbH is responsible, Adversis Pharma GmbH is entitled to carry out a further test at its own expense. If necessary, the customer will provide further sample material for this test.

6.6 If Adversis Pharma GmbH was unable to carry out the further analysis for reasons for which it is responsible, or if the customer has unsuccessfully set Adversis Pharma GmbH a reasonable period of grace for rectification of the analysis in the event of default, the customer may reduce the price or withdraw from the contract.
6.7 If, on the basis of official or court orders and decrees, legal provisions or guidelines or similar, changes are made to the agreed service or the agreed method of conducting the analysis, claims for performance and damages on the part of the customer shall be excluded.
6.8 The contract exists exclusively between Adversis Pharma GmbH and the customer. The contract does not develop any protective effect in favor of third parties unless this is expressly agreed between Adversis Pharma GmbH and the customer.
6.9 Adversis Pharma GmbH's liability for damage to the customer is limited to intent and gross negligence on the part of Adversis Pharma GmbH or its representatives or persons employed in performing its obligations. This does not apply to damage due to injury to life, body or health.

You can revoke your contractual declaration within two weeks without stating reasons in text form (e.g. letter, fax, email) or - if the sampling kit is handed over to you before the deadline - by returning the kit.  The time limit begins after receiving this instruction in text form, but not before the conclusion of the contract and also not before we have fulfilled our obligations according to Art. 312e para. 1, sentence 1 BGB (German Civil Code) in conjunction with Art. 3 BGB Info-V (Regulation on the Duty to Inform). The timely dispatch of the revocation or the sampling kit is sufficient to comply with the revocation period. The revocation has to be addressed to:

Consequences of the cancellation

In the event of an effective cancellation, the services received by both parties must be returned and any benefits derived must be surrendered. If you are unable to return the received goods or services in whole or in part or only in a deteriorated condition, you may be required to pay compensation. Obligations to refund payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins for you with the dispatch of your revocation declaration or the withdrawal set, for us with its receipt. In the case of the agreed service, your right of cancellation shall expire prematurely if Adversis Pharma GmbH has begun to perform the analysis with your express consent before the end of the cancellation period or if you have arranged for this yourself. For the cancellation of orders, samples or payments already sent in, Adversis Pharma GmbH will charge a lump sum of 25.00 EUR incl. VAT.
