3. General Information on Offers and Orders
- The presentation of the products in the shop, on websites and in digital printed brochures or catalogues or comparable product presentations of the Vendor does not constitute a legally binding offer, but an invitation to place an order and thus the offer of the Customer.
- Customers are responsible for ensuring that the details they provide are accurate and for notifying any changes to the Vendor if they are necessary for the Vendor’s fulfilment of the contract. In particular, Customers are responsible for ensuring that the e-mail and delivery addresses they provide are accurate and that any obstructions to receipt for which Customers are responsible are taken into account accordingly (e.g. by checking the spam folder of the email software used).
- Customers are requested to carefully read and observe the instructions during the ordering process and, if necessary, to use the available support functions of their software and hardware (e.g. magnification or read-aloud functions). Required information will be appropriately identified as such by the Seller for the Customers (e.g. by optical highlighting and/or asterisk signs). Until the order is submitted, the Customers can change and view the product selection and their entries at any time, as well as go back in the ordering process or cancel the ordering process altogether. For this purpose, the Customers can use the available and common functions of their software and/or end device (e.g. the forward and back buttons of the browser or keyboard, mouse and gesture functions on mobile devices). Furthermore, unwanted entries can be corrected by canceling the ordering process.
4. Ordering Process and Conclusion of Contract
- The Customer can select from the products offered in the Vendor’s assortment to the Customer and collect them in a so-called shopping basket. In the selection within the shopping basket, the product selection can be changed, e.g. deleted. Otherwise, the customer can initiate the completion of the order process.
- By clicking on the button that concludes the ordering process, the Customer makes a binding offer to the Vendor to purchase the products in the shopping basket.
- The Vendor may accept the Customer’s offer within five days (hereinafter referred to as the “Acceptance Period”). The Acceptance Period begins with the completion of the order process by the Customer. The Acceptance Period begins with the completion of the order process by the Customer (in the store, or if used and named, on the platform used or by means of other communication channels) and ends with the expiry of its last day. The Vendor may accept the Customer’s offer by means of an explicit acceptance of the offer, also by e-mail. Acceptance may also be affected by dispatch of the goods and their receipt by the Customer within the Acceptance Period, as well as by a request for payment addressed by the Vendor to the Customer and at the latest by the completion of the payment process. In the event of several acceptance events, the earliest acceptance date shall be decisive. If the Vendor does not accept the Customer’s offer within the Acceptance Period, no contract shall be concluded and the Customer shall no longer be bound by his/her offer.
5. Contract Text and Contract Language
- The Vendor saves the text of the contract and makes it available to the Customers in text form (e.g. by e-mail or printed with the delivery of the order). The Customer can print the text of the contract before submitting the order to the Vendor by using the print function of his browser or the save function for web pages in the last step of the ordering process.
- The contractual language is English, contracts can be concluded in this language.
6. Prices and Shipping Costs
- All prices are final prices. The seller is subject to the sales tax small business regulation and therefore does not specify sales tax, or VAT.
- The delivery and shipping charges incurred in addition to the sales price will be notified or linked to the Customer in the respective product description and before the order is completed.
- In the case of a delivery to countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area, additional taxes (e.g. import duties) or costs (e.g. bank charges) may be incurred. These expenses are not paid by the Vendor, but are to be paid by the Customer to the appropriate tax or customs authorities. The Vendor recommends that the Customer obtain information on possible further costs from the competent authorities and on the basis of the national regulations that apply to the Customer

7. Payment Methods and Terms
- Unless otherwise agreed, payments shall be made without discounts, reductions or other rebates.
- When using financial institutions and other payment service providers, the terms and conditions and data protection information of the payment service providers also apply with regard to payment. Customers are requested to observe these regulations and notes as well as information within the framework of the payment process. This is particularly because the provision of payment methods or the course of the payment procedure may also depend on the agreements between the Customer and financial institutions and payment service providers (e.g. agreed spending limits, location-restricted payment options, verification procedures, etc.).
- The Customer shall ensure that the Customer fulfills the conditions incumbent upon the Customer, which are necessary for successful payment by means of the selected payment method. This includes, in particular, sufficient coverage of bank and other payment accounts, registration, legitimation and authorization with payment services and confirmation of transactions.
- If a payment is not made or reversed due to insufficient funds in the Customer’s account, the provision of incorrect bank details or an unjustified objection by the Customer, then the Customer shall bear the fees incurred as a result, provided that the Customer is responsible for the failed or reversed booking and, in the case of a SEPA credit transfer, was informed of the transfer in good time (so-called “pre-notification”).
- If the Vendor assigns its payment claim against the Customer to payment service providers, the payment with debt-discharging effect can only be made to the respective payment service provider. The contractual obligations of the Vendor towards the Customer, in particular the performance and warranty obligations, observance of withdrawals as well as contractual ancillary obligations shall not be affected by the assignment.

- SEPA Direct Debit – By placing the order, the Customer grants the Vendor a SEPA direct debit mandate. By issuing the SEPA direct debit mandate, the Vendor is authorised to initiate the payment transaction, whereby the Customer’s bank account is automatically debited. The Customer will be informed of the date on which the bank account will be debited (referred to as ” Pre-Notification”). The Pre-Notification is not bound by form and can, for example, take the form of an invoice, details in an e-mail, on a website or be included in GTCs. The period of notice of the date on which the bank account is to be debited is 5 days (referred to as the “Pre-Notification Period”). The invoice amount is due after the direct debit mandate has been issued, but not before the Pre-Notification Period has expired. The account shall be debited before shipment of the goods but not before the expiry of the Pre-Notification Period.

The following information applies to PayPal or the respective named third party payment service providers (collectively referred to as “Checkout payment service providers”). The terms and conditions of the Checkout Payment Service Provider communicated to the Customer shall apply. If the Vendor offers a purchase on account or payment by installments via the Checkout payment service provider, the Vendor reserves the right that a prerequisite of the payment method is a successful check of the address and creditworthiness of the customer by the Checkout payment service provider. The Vendor assigns the payment to the Checkout payment service provider. A debt-discharging payment can only be made to the Checkout payment service provider in accordance with the conditions and the selected, or stated, payment term of the Checkout payment service provider. In the event of payment by means of a SEPA direct debit mandate, the Customer shall issue a SEPA direct debit mandate to the Checkout payment service provider.

- Furthermore, delivery by means of a freight carrier can only be made if the requirements for the freight carrier delivery communicated to the Customer within the scope of the product description or the ordering process can be fulfilled.
- If a delivery of goods fails for reasons for which the Customer is responsible, the Customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred for the outward and return shipment. Insofar as the costs arise from the exercise of the right of withdrawal for consumers, the aforementioned obligation to bear the costs shall only apply to the costs of sending the goods there, while the regulations in the instructions on withdrawal shall apply to the costs of returning the goods.
- Should the delivery of the goods fail through the fault of the Customer despite three attempts at delivery, the Vendor may withdraw from the contract. Any payments made will be refunded to the Customer without delay.

- Customers are requested to report obvious transport damage as soon as possible to the transport company or carrier or otherwise to notify us of the transport damage.

- The Vendor shall be liable for damages without limitation insofar as the cause of the damage is based on intent or gross negligence. Furthermore, the Vendor shall be liable for the slightly negligent breach of essential obligations, the breach of which endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract, for the breach of obligations, the fulfilment of which makes the proper performance of the contract possible in the first place and on the compliance with which the customer regularly relies (cardinal obligations) or in the case of agreed guarantee commitments. In this case, however, the Vendor shall only be liable for the foreseeable, contract-typical and expectable damage.

The above limitations of liability shall not apply in the event of injury to life, limb or health, for a defect following the assumption of a guarantee for the quality of the product and in the event of fraudulently concealed defects. Liability under the product liability law remains unaffected. Insofar as the Vendor’s liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of employees, representatives and vicarious agents. In all other respects, claims for damages by the Customer shall be excluded. The above liability provisions shall also apply to claims for damages by the Customer under the Vendor’s statutory warranty.
- The limitations of warranty and liability obligations as well as shortening of deadlines in this respect shall not apply to claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses of the Customer, goods that have been used in accordance with their customary use for a building and have caused its defectiveness as well as to existing update obligations in the case of contracts for digital products.
