Your right to cancel

The Bärenreiter UK Music Shop supplies goods on a firm order basis. However, under UK law, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 state that you have the right to cancel the contract for purchase of any goods supplied by us, providing you return them in sufficient time to reach us within 30 (thirty) calendar days of the date of receipt. This applies to all goods supplied by the Bärenreiter UK Music Shop with the exception of CD, Video, DVD, software and Book & CD packages where the item has been either tampered with or unsealed.

Goods returned in this way should be clearly marked "Contract Cancellation" and you must include all relevant documentation. Please package the items securely as returned goods that are damaged will not qualify for refund. In accordance with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, you will be responsible for the cost of the original despatch and the return of the goods. For your protection, we recommend that you use a recorded delivery method for return. A refund will be given for only the value of the goods supplied and subject to the goods reaching us within 14 (fourteen) calendar days of the date on which you received them.

However if you have purchased a CD, Video, DVD, software or Book & CD package and you find the goods faulty, you are advised to contact us on +44 (0) 1279 828930 or email info@barenreiter.co.uk stating your invoice/order number and the date so that we can arrange the return and replacement of the damaged goods. Faber Music Ltd will replace the entire package, not just the damaged component.


Digital Goods

Our sale and supply of digital sheet music files ('Digital Files') is governed by the Consumer Rights Act 2015. This provides that Digital Files supplied by us must match the way we have described them, and be fit for purpose and of reasonable quality.

Please note that if a Digital File supplied by us is faulty or is not as described, you are entitled to a replacement. If a replacement cannot be supplied within a reasonable period and without significant inconvenience, you are entitled to your money back.

If you can show that a faulty file has damaged your device and we haven't used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation.

Orders supplied incorrectly or received damaged

In the event of an order being supplied incorrectly, or if you receive it damaged, we advise you to contact us on +44 (0) 1279 828930 or email info@barenreiter.co.uk stating your invoice/order number and date, so that we can authorise its return to us. This does not affect your statutory rights. Goods returned in this way should be clearly marked "Authorised Return". Bärenreiter Ltd. will send you either a replacement copy or provide you with a full refund.



Please remember that it is illegal to photocopy music without a licence from the copyright owner. To photocopy is to steal from the composer/author and the publisher.
