General Terms and Conditions
§ 1 Scope
For the use of our website and the use of our online shop, the following terms and conditions of the Kyborg Institute & Publishing and the Alke Ltd. Spiritual Art & Magic apply.
§ 2 Contract Conclusion
The conclusion of the contract is as stated in the offer or the invoice with the Kyborg Institute & Publishing and/or the Alke Ltd. Spiritual Art & Magic.
Our online shop is a representation of the goods offered by us. You have the ability to request a quote for all the goods offered. For digital products you immediately conclude a purchase agreement via (for example PayPal) payment services. The information given below applies to digital products. Since our goods are particularly dependent on world market prices (eg stainless steel, rare crystals, gold and others), smaller or larger deviations from the prices quoted in the shop may occur. Only after your confirmation of the prices currently charged by us in our offer to you, a contract of sale is concluded and then only with your receipt of payment from us.
Upon ordering physical goods (Energy Pyramids, books, and other solid products), you will receive an offer from us (usually within 24 hours), with the goods and prices included. Only after your express confirmation by transfer or order confirmation is the binding conclusion of contract concluded. Up to this point, we have no claims on you for physical goods. Your obligations with respect to the Digital Goods will remain unaffected and will be deemed a contract under the digital product details below and will generally be payable immediately after your order has been placed.
Unless otherwise specified in writing in your case, these general terms and conditions apply and will not be stored separately by us.
§ 3 Digital Products
When acquiring digital products (PDFs, eBooks, programs, sound files | in all known and future file formats (2D, 3D, and future developed formats)) the following applies:
By purchasing a digital product on our website, the customer acquires the right to own a copy of the file he has acquired from us. He does not acquire the copyright or a resale license. The copy of the digitial product is for personal / private use only and may not be publicly displayed or awarded. Similarly, uploading to file-sharing systems or other types of distribution systems is prohibited. Violations will be prosecuted.
For the purchase, the following applies:
For the purchase of digital products (in their respective form on our website) the establishment of a user account is required.
With the purchase of the file, the buyer also has the right to download the file twice within one year via his user accounton our website and save it on any disk of his choice. After expiry of the deadline, unused download options expire, or with a 2-time download, the customer's access period of one year expires on the file with consumption of the second download option. If the customer requests the closure of his user account on our website, his remaining download options on digital articles purchased expire too.
The customer is free to purchase a new copy of the file at any time (eg if the file is lost). The same conditions of one year access period and 2 download options apply to any data carrier of the buyer. A claim for compensation of a file loss, for example, destroyed disk or other risks associated with data storage, the customer does not receive.
Due to European regulations, the sale of digital products between members of the European Union is subject to special VAT conditions. In the case of contractual partners within the EU, this must always be paid in the country of the buyer and in the amount of the VAT rate specified there. For example, if a citizen from France purchases an eBook on our website, the French VAT rate applies to eBooks.
As a result of this policy, purchases of VAT in the eStore section of our Digital Products website will be subject to different VAT calculations than those for physical products. The displayed retail price of a digital article is consistent for each EU member country (and worldwide). Only the VAT included in the sale price varies widely, depending on the place of residence of the buyer. Residence is determined by the billing address indicated by the buyer.
§ 4 Error
For typing errors and miscalculations, as well as errors on the Internet pages, we reserve the right to withdraw from the contract due to error.
§ 5 Delivery
In rare cases, delivery bottlenecks may occur. Therefore, there is basically no claim to delivery or subsequent delivery. We will inform the customer immediately if an item should not be available. As a delivery method we use DHL, Deutsche Post and forwarding agencies as needed. You will find corresponding information in your second order confirmation. When executing the order the risk for the ordered goods with departure from our warehouse passes to the recipient.
§ 6 Shipping Conditions
You can find out more about the shipping costs in our general shipping information and explicitly in our offer to you.
A self-pickup of the goods is possible after consultation.
The exact value of your shipping costs, please refer to our 2nd order confirmation! All prices are subject to change, as we are dependent on the costs of the carriers! The delivery method "parcel" is not used because repeated parcels have been lost!
FREIGHT FORWARDING: For large Europe-wide and international deliveries we use different service providers. The expenses incurred here will be calculated individually with our service providers. We can offer the following (insured) services for the delivery of our products in this area. All services will be coordinated with you and personal wishes will be considered if possible:
- Freight forwarding (parcels and pallets)
- Air freight (also pallets and bulky (eg the Irminsul) | if you want to go fast)
- Sea freight (with container | very large loads and if it may be a bit longer)
§ 7 Payment
Kyborg Institute & Publishing and Alke Ltd. Spiritual Art & Magic offer the following payment options:
- Payment in advance
- PayPal (especially for digital products | A PayPal account on your part is usually necessary)
- Cash on pickup
- Card payment upon pickup (Maestro, EC, MasterCard, VISA, V Pay, American Express)
All prices shown on the internet are gross prices incl. VAT. Internet shops, foreign deliveries and deliveries to new customers are processed in advance. Payments are possible by transfer to our business account of Alke Ltd. Spiritual Art & Magic or in cash upon collection. The VAT is stated in the second order confirmation and in the invoice.
According to BGB § 286 (3), all invoices are due 30 days after receipt of the delivery. If you do not comply with the 30-day deadline, you will automatically be in default of payment without the need for a separate reminder. The open account can then be sued including legal costs. This note is required by law. Please keep the specified deadlines!
§ 8 Retention of title
The delivered goods remain our property until full settlement of all claims against the customer.
§ 9 Notice of defects
If a notice of defects is justified and if we are responsible for the damage, a replacement delivery or a price reduction will be made after consultation with the customer. If a price reduction or substitute delivery is not possible, the purchaser can exercise his right of revocation and refuse or return the delivery. In this case, the customer will contact us about the most favorable form of return of the goods. In case of a complaint we take over of course the return of shipping costs. However, the return must be cleared to avoid unnecessary costs. The return costs will be refunded to the customer. We are only liable for damage to the goods themselves. Further claims of the customer, regardless of the legal grounds, are excluded. In commercial (B2B) traffic, § 377 HGB applies, according to which a once accepted goods are considered examined and accepted. Exceptions are defects that were not apparent as such by the investigation.
§ 10 Warranty
There is a legal warranty. The purchaser must immediately assert defects in the delivered goods upon delivery, as only then does a transport insurance take effect. In the case of post and DHL, the damages must be immediately applied to the delivery vendor or to the nearest post office, using the forms provided for this purpose. On delivery with a forwarding agent, visible transport damage must be reported to the driver immediately, if possible also photographed and confirmed by the driver on the delivery note stating his truck registration number and his name.
§ 11 Complaints
Complaints are best addressed directly by phone 0049.6243.7057 (landline, no additional costs), or by email email@example.com, or by fax. 0049.6243.7058 . | The European Commission provides an online dispute resolution platform (OS): http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/

The reseller must notify the return in advance by telephone or in writing (email) in order to arrange with us details of the return. When returning goods by picking up with our forwarding agent, it should be noted that the return costs for a delivery are basically 10% more expensive than the delivery, as other forwarding agents must be commissioned.
