I. General terms and conditions of business

1. Scope of application
The following General Terms and Conditions in their valid version at the time of ordering apply to business relationships with our customers when placing orders via the Internet shop.

Customers are both consumers and entrepreneurs. A consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose that cannot be attributed primarily to his commercial or self-employed professional activity. Entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity which, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of its commercial or self-employed professional activity.

2. Offer and conclusion of contract
The presentation of the products in our internet shop is not a legally binding offer, but a non-binding online catalogue.

The subject matter of the contract is the sale of goods via our Internet shop. After entering your personal data, the successful completion of the individual order steps and by clicking the appropriate button, in the final step of the order process, you make a binding purchase offer for the goods contained in the shopping cart. Before submitting the order you have the possibility to recognize possible input errors and to correct and/or change them with the help of the correction function.

The confirmation of receipt of the order follows immediately after sending the order. This automatic acknowledgement of receipt merely documents that the order has been received by us and does not constitute an order acceptance.

We are entitled to accept your order within 2 working days after receipt, by sending an order confirmation in writing or in text form (e. g. email) in which you will be asked to pay for the processing of the order or the delivery of the goods.

Deviating from this applies to consumer customers: A binding contract can also be concluded in advance if you choose an online payment method and make the payment immediately after sending the order. In this case, the contract is concluded at the time when the corresponding payment service provider confirms the execution of the payment instruction to you.

3. Settlement
Only the payment methods indicated in the order process are accepted. The available payment methods and details of any additional costs of a payment method can be viewed in advance on the information pages of our Internet shop.

4. Shipment
Delivery is effected by sending the goods to the address given by the customer.

Delivery takes place against the packaging and shipping costs indicated in the order process. Details of any delivery restrictions and any packaging and shipping costs incurred can be viewed in advance on the information pages of our Internet shop.

If, despite careful planning, an article cannot be delivered through no fault of your own, you will be informed by e-mail and any payments already made will be refunded.

5. Retention of title
The delivered goods remain our property until the purchase price has been paid in full.

For business customers, the following shall apply in deviation from this: We reserve title to the goods until all claims arising from the current business relationship have been settled in full.

6. Warranty
The warranty is subject to the statutory provisions.

For business customers, however, the following applies: warranty claims due to defects in the goods shall become statute-barred one year after the passing of risk. Excluded from this are claims for damages, claims due to defects that we maliciously concealed, and claims arising from a guarantee that we have assumed for the quality of the goods. The right of recourse according to  478 BGB is also excluded. The statutory limitation periods shall apply to these excluded claims.

7. Damage in Transit
For consumer customers, the following applies: Please complain about transport damages to the deliverer as soon as possible and contact us. The contact details can be found in the imprint. Please note that failure to make a complaint or contact will not have any consequences for your statutory warranty rights. However, they help us to assert our own claims against the transport company.

The following applies to business customers: You must inspect the goods immediately on receipt for correctness, completeness and defects in accordance with  377 HGB (German Commercial Code).

8. Applicable law and place of jurisdiction
The contractual relations between us and the entrepreneur customer shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. The application of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded. The place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship between the customer and us shall be our registered office, insofar as the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law.

II. Customer information:

1. Codes of conduct
