§ 6 Conclusion of contract

(1) Our product descriptions do not constitute a binding offer.

(2) After entering your personal data, checking the correctness of your information on the following overview page and by confirming the order in the final step of the ordering process, you submit a binding purchase offer for the goods contained in the shopping cart. If your order has been successfully sent to us, you will receive an e-mail in which the receipt of the order is confirmed and you are given all the necessary information about the order and the ordered goods. This confirmation e-mail does not yet represent a binding acceptance of the order by us. The confirmation e-mail only represents a declaration of acceptance if this is expressly declared by us. However, a contract and thus a contractual commitment for the individual services comes about when we expressly accept your purchase offer through an order confirmation or through conclusive action, in particular through shipping and receipt of the goods. You are bound to your offer for a period of 7 working days.

(3) You can cancel the order at any time by clicking the "Cancel" or "Back" button or by closing the browser window. The overview page that appears before completing the order enables you to check your details again for input errors and, if there are any input errors, to correct them after pressing the "Back" button. Only German is available as the language for the conclusion of the contract. The content of the contract will be stored by us for the duration of the statutory periods, sent to you with the confirmation email and, if your documents are lost, a copy can be sent to you upon written request.


§ 7 Terms of payment, shipping, delivery time, delivery restrictions and retention of title, requirement for the use of digital content

(1) Subject to a deviating regulation in individual cases, the following applies to payment and shipping:

a) You can pay by bank transfer in advance or by PayPal.

b) If the payment term "bank transfer in advance" is selected, we will ship the goods to the customer within 10 working days within Germany after receipt of payment. The period for delivery then begins after receipt of payment on our account. If the last day of the period falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a public holiday recognized by the state at the place of delivery, the next working day takes the place of such a day. If you choose PayPal, the above delivery period begins immediately after your payment. Delivery costs are payed by the customer. In principle, we only ship physical items within the European Union, purely digital content worldwide. Since we cannot reasonably calculate the costs for shipping abroad in advance, the customer who orders from outside Germany will inform himself about this independently. If, in individual cases, you want the goods to be shipped to a country outside the European Union, you are responsible for the proper import customs clearance and bear the costs.

c) The conditions for payment, delivery time and shipping can be regulated in the online offer deviating from the previous paragraphs. In this case, the regulations on our website apply.

(2) Default on your payment and do business as a consumer(§ 13 BGB), you are obliged to pay us interest on arrears at a rate of 5 percentage points above the base interest rate, unless we can prove that the damage was higher. If you act as an entrepreneur, sentence 1 applies with the proviso that the default interest rate is 9 percentage points above the base rate.

(3) The delivered goods remain our property until full payment.

(4) On the occasion of your order, have we concluded a contract with our supplier for the delivery of the goods(so-called "hedging transaction")and our supplier does not meet his delivery obligation from the hedging transaction, we operators can withdraw from the purchase contract by declaring this to the customer. In the case of sentence 1, we will inform you immediately of the non-availability and in this case we will immediately reimburse you for payments already made or other consideration you have provided.

§ 8 Rights to Liability for Defects

(1) If defects appear in the goods within the statutory period, you are obliged to inform us of these and to send the goods back to us at our expense. Since freight collect shipments are associated with high additional costs, you are not entitled to choose this shipping method; we will therefore reimburse you for the shipping costs immediately and, if you specifically request them, also advance them.

(2) The fulfillment of any warranty rights is based on §§ 433 et seq. BGB. Buy as an entrepreneur(§ 14 BGB), the period for asserting warranty rights is limited to one year and we are entitled to either improve the goods or redeliver them at our discretion.

§ 9 liability clause

(1) We pay damages or compensation for wasted expenses, regardless of the legal reason(e.g. from legal and quasi-legal obligations, breach of duty or tort), only to the following extent:

Liability in the event of intent or a guarantee remains unlimited.

In the case of gross negligence, we are liable to entrepreneurs in the amount of the typical damage that was foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded, unless it is an essential obligation, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the purpose of the contract possible in the first place and on the observance of which you can therefore regularly rely(so-called cardinal obligation).

We have unlimited liability to consumers for gross negligence.

If we otherwise simply negligently breach a cardinal obligation, we are only liable to the amount of the damage that was typically foreseeable for us at the time the contract was concluded. If we are in default with our performance, we are also liable for accidents, unless the damage would have occurred even if we had performed on time. Otherwise, liability on our part for simple negligence is excluded.

(2) We reserve the right to object that we are at fault. You have the obligation to back up data according to the current state of the art.

(3) Insofar as our liability is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of our employees, representatives and vicarious agents.

(4) The above paragraphs of § 9 (liability clause) do not apply in the event of injury to life, limb or health and in the case of claims under the Product Liability Act.

§ 10 data protection

(1) We will observe data protection requirements, in particular the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act.

These are: Salutation, first name, surname, e-mail address, street number, postal code, city, country.This is data that must be provided. Furthermore, you can provide voluntary information(data fields without asterisks).

§ 11 Final Provisions
