Battery Law – Information Obligation
Since our products can contain batteries or rechargeable batteries, we are obliged by the German battery law to inform our customers in accordance with the law. Batteries and rechargeable batteries can’t be disposed of in the garbage, the end user is obliged by law to return old batteries and accumulators. Old batteries can contain harmful substances who can damage your health if they are stored or disposed of properly. Batteries also contain important raw materials, for example iron, zinc, manganese or nickel, and can be recycled. You can either send the batteries back to us or you can return them free of charge to the local retailer or to the communal collecting point. The return of batteries of the end user to the local retailer is restricted to a reasonable amount of batteries and is restricted to only the batteries that the local retailer offers in his product range.
