1.4. Deviating conditions of the Customer are not recognized, unless the seller expressly and in writing agrees to their validity.

2. Offers and specifications

2.1. The product presentation in our online shop does not represent a legally binding offer but an invitation to place an order. Service descriptions in catalogs and on the websites of the seller do not have the character of a representation or warranty.

2.2. All offers are valid “while stocks last”, if not stated otherwise in the products. Incidentally errors excepted.

3. Order Process and Conclusion of Contract

3.1. The Customer can choose products from the Sellers range Select obligation and collect them with the button – add to cart – in a so-called basket.

3.2 Subsequently, within the basket (cart) the Customer may proceed with the button – proceed to checkout – to complete the ordering process.

3.3. By clicking the button – buy – the Customer makes a binding offer to purchase the goods in the basket (cart). Before sending the order, the Customer may see the data at any time and may change them. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).

3.4. The seller then sends by e-mail an automatic confirmation of receipt to the Customer, in which the Customer’s order is listed again and which the Customer can print by using the “print” button (order confirmation). The automatic confirmation of receipt only documents that the Customer’s order is received by the seller and does not constitute acceptance of the request. The purchase contract is only concluded when the seller ships or gives the ordered product within 2 days to the Customer, or confirms within 2 days the shipment to the Customer with a second e-mail, with an explicit order confirmation or by sending the invoice.

3.5. Should the seller provide payment in advance (prepaid), the contract is concluded by providing bank information and demand for payment. If the payment is not received despite being in arrears, even after a second notice within the time frame of 10 calendar days after the Seller has send the order confirmation, the Seller may withdraw from the contract with the result that the order was null and void and the Seller has no more duty to deliver. The order is then done for both buyer and Seller without any further consequences. Therefore a reservation for a specific article as done by payment in advance is only valid for a maximum of 10 calendar days.

4. Prices and Shipping Costs

4.1. All prices indicated on the merchant’s website are inclusive of applicable taxes.

4.2. In addition to the prices Seller charges shipment (delivery) costs. Shipping fees are communicated clearly to the buyer on the delivery page and during the order process.

5. Delivery, product availability

5.1. If there are no copies of the selected product available at the time of the Customer’s order , Seller will inform the Customer about this fact in the Order Confirmation. If the product is permanently unavailable, the Seller will not accept the order. In this case a contract is not concluded.

5.2. If the product the Customer has stated in his order is only temporarily unavailable, the Seller will immediately inform the Customer with the order confirmation. If the delivery is delayed for more than two weeks, the Customer has the right to terminate the contract. In that case also the Seller is incidentally entitled to withdraw from the contract. Here, the seller will refund immediately the payments the Customer may have already given. As far as there is an agreement for payment in advance, delivery is made after the invoice amount has been received.

6. Payment Terms

6.1. The Customer can choose during and before completing the ordering process from the available payment methods.

6.2. A payment on invoice is not possible.

6.3. Are third-party responsible for payment processing, for example, Paypal, then their Ts&Cs are applicable.

6.4. If the due date of payment is determined by the calendar, the Customer is already in default when the deadline has passed. In this case, the Customer has to pay default interest amounting to 5 percentage points above the base rate.

6.5. The Customer’s obligation to pay default interest does not exclude the Sellers’ assertion of further damage caused by delay.

6.6. A right to offset is only to the Customer if his counterclaims are legally established or recognized by the Seller. The Customer can only exercise the right to retain, if the claims are the result from the same contract relationship.

7. Retention of Title

Until full payment the delivered goods remain the property of the Seller.

8. Warranty for defects and guarantee

8.1. The warranty shall be governed by statutory provisions.

8.2. A guarantee for the goods supplied by the Seller only exists if it is expressly stated.

touching other legal conditions and entitlements.

9.2. Seller has unlimited liability if the damage was caused by intent or gross negligence.

9.3. Furthermore, the seller is liable for the slight negligent breach of obligations, which endangers the purpose of the contract, or for the violation of obligations, the fulfillment of which renders a correct execution of the contract and on whose fulfillment Customer regularly relies. In this case, however, Seller is liable only for the foreseeable, in the frame of the contract typical damage. Seller is not liable for the slight negligent breach of others than the obligations mentioned in the preceding sentences.

9.4. The above limitations shall not apply to injuries to life, body and health, for a flaw after a guarantee for the quality of the product has been taken and for fraudulently concealed defects. Liability under the product liability law remains unaffected.

9.5. As far as Seller’s liability is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of employees, representatives and agents.

10. Withdrawal
You can cancel your contract declaration in writing (eg letter, fax, email) within 14 days without giving any reasons – and if the goods have been already delivered within this time frame – withdraw by returning the goods. The period begins upon receipt of this notification in writing, but not before receiving the goods to the consignee (in case of recurring deliveries of similar goods not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not before our obligations for information are fulfilled according to following paragraphs in German law: 246 § 2 in connection with § 1 paragraph 1 and 2 EGBGB and our obligations according to § 312g, paragraph 1 sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with 246 § 3 BGB.

Consequences of Withdrawal

In case of an effective cancellation the mutually received benefits are to be returned and any benefits (eg interest) surrendered. If you can not return the received benefits or performances, or can return them only partly or in a deteriorated condition, you have to compensate us accordingly. For the deterioration and derived benefits, you must pay compensation only to the extent the use or the deterioration is due to a deal with the matter, beyond the consideration of the characteristics and functioning. “Testing the properties and functioning” is meant in alliance with the testing and trying out the same goods in a shop. Items which can be shipped in parcels are to be returned at our risk. You have to bear the cost of returning the goods if the ordered goods correspond to those delivered,
and if the price of the item which is sent back does not exceed an amount of 40 Euros, or – in case of a higher price – if you do not have yet provided quid pro quo or the contractually agreed partial payment at the time of the revocation. Otherwise, the return is free for you. Items which can not be shipped in parcels will be picked up at your place. Obligations to reimburse payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The deadline starts for you with the dispatch of your revocation or the item, for us with their receipt.

12.3. Customers are asked to avoid damage or contamination of the product. If possible goods should be returned with all accessories to the Seller in their original packaging.
