The website contains links to other websites (links). These are provided purely as a service for the user. If you click on one of these links you leave the monsieur cuisine website. The use of links is at your own risk. HOYER Handel cannot check all websites of other companies and has no influence on their respective content.

Objections can be sent by post or email to the address specified in the imprint and will be deemed to be on time if they are sent within the specified period. HOYER Handel will provide specific in-formation about the significance of the time limit and the legal consequences of remaining silent in the email announcing the changes. The legal consequences (acceptance through si-lence) only come into effect if the aforementioned information has actually been distributed.
11. Duration of the contract of use and termination
The contract of use can be terminated by the registered user at any time without notice and without specifying reasons by post or by email to HOYER Handel at the addresses specified in the imprint.
HOYER Handel ordinarily has the right to end the contract of use with any registered user without specifying reasons with a notice period of four weeks.
The right to extraordinary termination with good cause, in particular due to significant or re-peated infringement of these terms & conditions of use, remains unaffected. Section 314 of the BGB [German Civil Code] applies.
