Note on the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG)


As a distributor of electrical and electronic equipment, we are obliged to advise you of the following:
All electrical appliances that can be used in private households are marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. As the picture shows:      
This symbol means that old equipment is not allowed to be disposed together with household waste. The aim of the ElektroG is the protection of the environment and health. Because old electrical goods contain hazardous substances or valuable resources, every consumer is required to return them separately from household waste at recycling centers or at collection points or recycling center. In addition, we have set up additional collection points for you. These can be found on our homepage www.inateck.com/de/.

Please note the following important information!

Please note that we can only accept broken-down devices everywhere. Anything that is not broken does not belong to electronic waste! Old appliances with an edge length of up to 25 cm are only accepted in normal household quantities. Polluted or dirty devices will not be accepted. The old device that you return for disposal does not have to be purchased from us.
There are exceptions for devices whose outer dimensions are larger than 25cm. When you buy a new Tomons lamp, you can return a broken old lamp to our collection points and disposal partners. The condition is that a new device of the same kind and quality was bought from us. The buyer must prove this by a proof of purchase. The old device that you return for disposal does not have to be purchased from us.
You must ensure that personal data on the waste equipment to be disposed of is deleted. Our registration number at the Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte-Register ("EAR") is UK WEE/MM5283AA
In addition, as a manufacturer, we have set up additional free collection points for small electrical appliances that do not have an outer dimension of more than 25 cm.A list of these collection points in Germany can be found here:

Note according to Battery Law (BattG)


Some of our products contain batteries and rechargeable batteries. According to the battery law (BattG) we are obliged to inform you about the following:
Batteries and accumulators is not allowed to be disposed together with household waste. Every consumer is required by law to return used batteries and accumulators to a municipal collection point or to the local retailer. Old batteries can contain toxins, but also important raw materials.
The crossed-out wheeled bin sign means that the batteries and rechargeable batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. Contaminated batteries are additionally marked with the following abbreviations of the pollutants: Pb: Battery contains lead / Cd: Battery contains cadmium / Hg: Battery contains mercury
Remove (if possible) all batteries and rechargeable batteries from the devices and dispose of them separately in the battery disposal.
Even some lamps must be disposed of separately. Only light bulbs and halogen lamps may be disposed of with household waste. Broken light bulbs can be simply handed out at one of thousands of Lightcycle collection points. This helps to save important resources, as around 90 percent of the components of old lamps can be recycled.
