2. Conclusion of contract in connection with electronic commerce


Any item shown and offered on the website www.dækekspert.dk does not constitute a binding offer to conclude a sales contract, but is merely an invitation for you to make a binding purchase offer. When placing an order by clicking on the button "Place binding order", you make a binding offer to enter into a sales contract. As soon as we have received your order, we will send you an email confirming the receipt of your order and listing the details of such order ("order confirmation").

When ordering rims and/or complete wheels, dækekspert.dk will, at your request, conduct a preliminary technical check of whether the ordered rims/complete wheels typically are technically compatible with your vehicle. This requires that you send certain technical data on the relevant vehicle. If the result of such preliminary check is negative, dækekspert.dk's customer service will contact you and you will then have the opportunity to either retain or cancel your order and, if relevant, place a new order. A new order constitutes a new purchase offer on your part after which dækekspert.dk will send a new order confirmation.

If you make a request to that effect, you may also postpone the submission of the data on your vehicle, which we require to conduct the technical check of whether the item's compatibility with the vehicle, until after you have placed your order by clicking "Place binding order". In that case, you will receive an email from dækekspert.dk requesting you to send the required data. If you fail to send us the required data on the vehicle, dækekspert.dk will reject your order and, accordingly, no contract will be concluded.

Our shipment of the ordered items constitutes a binding acceptance of your purchase offer. You will receive a confirmation of the conclusion of the contract and the shipment of the ordered items by email as soon as we have transferred the items to the freight company ("Shipment and contract confirmation").

We only accept orders from customers who are 18 years of age or older.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept orders by fax, letter or email for technical reasons.


3. Information on right of withdrawal for consumers


3.1 Statutory right of withdrawal:


The right of withdrawal described below only applies to customers who are consumers according to section 4a of the Danish Sale of Goods Act (købeloven).

Right of withdrawal:



You are entitled to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. The time limit for withdrawal will expire 14 days after the day on which you or a third party designated by you, but not carrier, has taken physical possession of the items.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us (reifencom GmbH, Südfeldstr. 16, D-30453 Hannover, Germany, email: info@daekekspert.dk, phone: +45 7873 7890, fax: +45 7873 7891) of your decision to withdraw from this contract in an unequivocal statement (e.g. in a letter sent by post, fax or email). You may use the attached model withdrawal form, but it is not mandatory.

You have observed the time limit for withdrawal if you send notification of the exercise of your right of withdrawal before the expiry of the time limit for withdrawal.

Consequences of withdrawal:

If you exercise your right of withdrawal from this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including delivery costs (however, with the exception of extra costs resulting from your own choice of a delivery method other than the least expensive standard delivery method offered by us), without undue delay and, in any event, no later than 14 days from the date on which we have received your notification of your decision to withdraw from this contract. In connection with such reimbursement, we will use the same means of payment as that used by you in connection with the initial transaction unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. In any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.

We will procure the pick-up of the items and pay the costs relating to the return of the items.

You are only liable for any impairment of the items resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the items.


Exception to the right of withdrawal for individually customised items:

1) Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, the right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts concerning the delivery of items which have not been prefabricated and where the manufacture thereof is essentially based on the customer's individual choices or specifications or where such items have been precisely and individually fitted to the customer's personal needs. This covers all deliveries of complete wheels manufactured especially for each individual customer.

5. Retention of title


No more relevant

6. Liability for defects and product liability


We do not manufacture the delivered goods. With respect to claims under the Danish Product Liability Act (produktansvarsloven), we will inform you of the name and address of the relevant manufacturer immediately upon request. You may also claim product liability against reifencom GmbH in accordance with the mandatory rules of Danish law .

If an item is damaged or is otherwise defective (e.g. incomplete delivery), you may rely on remedies for defective performance towards us.

In accordance with the rules of the Danish Sale of Goods Act, consumers have an absolute period of 2 years from delivery within which the notice must be given of defective performance.

The following applies to traders: The period within which the notice of defective performance must be given is 12 months reckoned from the date of the delivery of the item to you. This period does not apply in case of our fraud, the absence of a feature which we have guaranteed, or in case of injury to life, limb or health ascribed to us as well as damage resulting from our gross negligence. In such cases, only the statutory limitation rules and the rules on defective performance under Danish law will apply.

7. Liability


reifencom GmbH is subject to unlimited liability for any injury to life, limb or health if such injury is the result of the misconduct of reifencom GmbH or any of reifencom GmbH's legal representatives or assistants, and for any injury or damage due to the absence of a feature guaranteed by reifencom GmbH.

reifencom GmbH is subject to unlimited liability for any damage due to the intentional actions or gross negligence of reifencom GmbH or any of reifencom GmbH's legal representatives or assistants.

In case of breach of material contractual obligations due to simple negligence, the amount of reifencom GmbH's liability, except for the situations described in subclauses 1 and 5, will be limited to foreseeable damages typical with respect to contracts . Considered in the abstract, material contractual obligations are obligations the performance of which is a basic assumption for performing the contract appropriately and the performance of which may normally be expected by a contracting party.

reifencom GmbH disclaims any other liability, in particular any liability not due to the mistakes of reifencom GmbH or our representatives.

The liability under the Danish Product Liability Act will not be affected by this clause 7.

8. Late payment and right of retention


If you are in arrears with the payment, we reserve the right to charge a reminder fee for any necessary payment reminder. Such fee amounts to DKK 100 for each reminder, but no more than a total of 3 reminders.

We are also entitled to charge default interest in accordance with the applicable default interest rate under the Danish Interest Act (renteloven).

The fact that we charge reminder fees and/or interest in accordance with this subclause 8 does not exclude the raising of other claims relating to any loss suffered by reifencom GmbH as a result of late payment.

The customer may only exercise a right of retention if (i) the claims are based on the same contractual relationship; and/or (ii) the counterclaims on which the right of retention is based are undisputed or determined by a court order.

9. Fitting partners


You may find information about our fitting partners for the individual post code areas at dækekspert.dk. Our fitting partners may assist you with the fitting of tyres and other items delivered by us. You may also choose to have the ordered tyres or other items delivered directly from us to a specific fitting partner for fitting. However, please note that our fitting partners do not act as a "parcel shop" where you can just pick up the ordered items.

We only provide you with the contact information to our fitting partners. The work of the individual fitting partners is performed on the basis of a special contract concluded between you and the relevant fitting partner. As a result, any claim in relation to the fitting work may only be raised against the relevant fitting partner.

10. Out-of-court dispute resolution


The European Commission has set up a platform for an online dispute resolution that can be retrieved via the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
However, we point out that we do not take part in dispute resolutions before a consumer arbitration board.

11. Final provisions – Governing law and jurisdiction


This Agreement is governed by Danish law excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

In case of disputes arising from a contract between reifencom GmbH and the consumer, the consumer may choose to institute legal proceedings before the ordinary courts in Denmark or the court of Hannover, Germany.

The following applies to traders: All disputes arising from a contract between reifencom GmbH and the trader must be decided by the City Court of Copenhagen.
