§ 4 Conclusion of Contract, Contract Language

(1) The presentation of the products and services in our online shop does not constitute a legally binding offer, but merely an invitation to place orders (invitatio ad offerendum).

(2) By clicking „Order with obligation to pay“ in the last step of the order process, you submit a binding offer for purchase of the goods displayed in the order overview and/or for booking of the services listed in the order overview. Immediately after submitting the order, you will receive an order confirmation, which however does not yet constitute the acceptance of your contract offer. A contract comes into existence between you and us as soon as we accept your order and/or booking by means of a separate email or dispatch the goods. Please regularly check the spam folder of your mailbox.

If you have placed goods and services in the shopping cart, by clicking on the buttons „Next“ you will get first to a web page where you may enter your data and then you may choose the shipping and payment method. You can review your input on the overview page that will open up. To correct input errors (e.g. with respect to the payment method, data or quantity), click „Edit“ next to the respective field. To cancel the orderprocess, you can simply close your browser window.

§ 7 Payment Conditions

The purchase price is due immediately after placing the order. The payment of the goods can be made via invoice. We reserve the right to make the delivery of goods dependent on the prior payment of our invoice (advance payment). Please find our bank details in the invoice sent to you or in the other contract documents.

§ 8 Retention of Title

(1) The goods shall remain our property until full payment.

(2) You are entitled to resell the goods under retention of title. However, you may not pledge the reserved goods or assign them by way of security. In this case, you already transfer all claims resulting from this resale to us in the amount of the invoice value, regardless if this resale takes place before or after a possible processing of the goods delivered under retention of title. We accept this assignment. Notwithstanding our authority to collect the claim ourselves, you remain entitled to collect the claim even after the transfer. In this context, we undertake not to collect the claim ourselves as long and if you are not in default in payments, no filing for insolvency proceedings or other proceedings against your assets exists and if no cessation of payments is given. If the abovementioned securities exceed the claims to be secured by more than 10 %, we are obliged to release the securities on your request at our discretion.

§ 9 Delivery Conditions

We deliver the goods pursuant to the agreements made. Arising shipping costs are listed in the product description and are billed separately.

§ 10 Warranty in case of purchasing goods

(1) If the goods delivered are defective, you are entitled, within the scope of statutory provisions, to demand supplementary performance in the form of removal of defects or delivery of a defect-free item. We are entitled to choose the form of supplementary performance. If the supplementary performance fails, you have the right to reduce the purchase price or to withdraw from the contract. Precondition for any warranty claim is that you fulfill all obligations to inspect and to reprimand owed pursuant to Sec. 377 HGB.

(2) The limitation period of warranty claims for the goods delivered is twelve months from receipt of the goods, except in cases of claims for damages.

§ 11 Limitation of Liability

We are liable for intent and gross negligence. Further, we are liable for the negligent breach of obligations, whose fulfillment is essential to enable the ordinary implementation of the contract, whose breach jeopardizes the achievement of the purpose of the contract and on whose compliance you as a customer may rely on regularly. In the last-mentioned case, we are only liable for the foreseeable, typical contractual damage. The same applies to breaches of duty by our vicarious agents.

§ 12 Final Provisions

(4) If individual provisions of these terms and conditions are ineffective, statutory laws, the terms and conditions as a whole remain unaffected. The contractual parties shall amicably decide to replace the ineffective provision by a legally effective provision, which comes closest to the commercial purpose of the ineffective one.
