Terms & Conditions
(The following terms and conditions also include legal information on rights according to the regulations on remote sales contracts and electronic business correspondence.)
§ 1 Application
(1) The following terms and conditions apply to all business relations between us (the vendor) and the customer (the buyer). The version current at the time of conclusion of contract is applicable.
(2) The Consumer for the purpose of the following terms is any person performing a legal act for a purpose not related to their commercial or self-employed occupational activity (§13 BGB). Trader is any person or company performing a legal act for the purpose of their self-employed or commercial activity (§14 BGB).
§ 2 Offerings
The vendor's offerings are subject to change. They constitute a prompt for orders. The contract and thus contractual obligation for each service does only occur once the vendor has confirmed the order to the buyer in writing.
§ 3 Prices
All orders specify the legal VAT.
§ 4 Delivery
(1) When paying in advance via bank transfer or PayPal, orders will not be shipped until payment is received and confirmed.
(2) Delivery deadlines and dates are only binding if they have explicitly been confirmed as binding in writing to the buyer.
§ 5 Terms of payment
The goods are considered to be paid only once the vendor has received the full invoice amount in cleared funds. In the event of late payment, the vendor may charge interest as regulated by law. Proof of higher damages through the vendor is also permissible. In this event the buyer may in turn deliver proof of no or lower damages to the vendor.
Accepted payment methods are cash on delivery, prepayment via bank transfer or PayPal. Shipping and handling costs may apply depending on the size of the order and destination country. These costs are available before the order is fulfilled.
§ 6 Conditional sale and assignment of claim
(1) The goods remain property of the vendor until payment is received in full.
(2) If the customer is acting as a Trader, the following applies:
a) The vendor retains property of the goods until settlement of all open demands from the current business relationship. Pledging or transfer of goods by way of security before transfer of ownership are not permissible.
b) The customer may resell the goods in the course of regular business. In this case the customer immediately forfeits any claims from resale the to the amount of the invoice to the vendor. The customer does not forfeit authorisation to collect the claim. The vendor reserves the right to collect the claim directly if the customer does not fulfil their payment obligations.
c) When combining or processing the reserved goods, the vendor receives partial ownership of the new good based on the invoice value of the reserved goods compared to that of the other parts at the time of processing.
d) The vendor is obliged to clear their entitlement on demand by the customer as far as the real value of the vendor's securities exceeds 10% of the secured demand. The choice of the securities to clear falls to the vendor.
§ 7 Warranty rights, claims and damages
(1) For consumers the legal warranty rights apply. (1) Customers are asked to verify and check the goods for complete delivery, obvious faults and transport damage upon receipt and notify the vendor and shipper of any complaints as soon as possible.
(2) For Trader customers, the following applies instead of section 1:
a) Shipping and delivery are performed at the customer's risk.
b) Properties of the goods are only specifications delivered by the vendor and the manufacturer, but not other advertising, public offerings or other statements by the manufacturer.
c) The customer is required to inspect the goods for quality issues or quantity discrepancies immediately and notify the seller in writing of any complaints within seven days of receipt. Dispatch of the complaint by this time is considered sufficient. The same applies for hidden defects found later, from the time of discovery. Warranty claims are forfeit if the customer does not observe their obligation to inspect the goods and notify the vendor of complaints within this time limit.
d) In the event of defects, the vendor may rectify these according to their choice through amendment or replacement. If the defects are not resolved after two remedial attempts, the customer may either request mitigation or withdraw from the contract. In case of remedial action, the vendor is not required to bear increased costs arising from movement of goods to a different location than the place of fulfilment if this is not part of the intended use of the goods.
e) The period of liability for defects is one year from delivery of the goods. The shorter liability period does not apply to damages to life, body and health attributable to the vendor or damages caused through negligence, intent or deceit by the vendor, nor to the right of recourse according to §§ 478, 479 BGB.
