Conclusion of an agreement
The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.
The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping basket and completing the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by clicking the button completing the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by e-mail.
The seller can accept the customer's offer within five days,
- by sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after placing his order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the dispatch of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
If the payment method "PayPal Express" is selected, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.ŕ r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as "PayPal"), in accordance with the PayPal Terms of Use, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or - if the Customer does not have a PayPal account - in accordance with the terms and conditions for payments without a PayPal account, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the Customer selects "PayPal Express" as the method of payment within the framework of the online order process, he shall also place a payment order with PayPal by clicking the button completing the order process. In this case, the Seller hereby declares acceptance of the Customer's offer at the point in time at which the Customer initiates the payment process by clicking the button completing the order process.
When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) together with the present general terms and conditions after sending the order. In addition, the contract text is archived on the Seller's website and can be retrieved free of charge by the Customer via his password-protected customer account by providing the corresponding login data, provided the Customer has created a customer account in the Seller's online shop before sending his order.
Prior to binding submission of the order via the Seller's online order form, the Customer may recognize possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for the better recognition of input errors can be the enlargement function of the browser, with whose help the representation on the screen is enlarged. Within the framework of the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button completing the ordering process.
Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
The order processing and establishment of contact usually take place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct so that e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
