(1) All personal data given by you (e. g. title, name, address, date of birth, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, bank details, credit card number) are compiled, processed and saved by us in accordance with the conditions of German data protection law.

 

(2) The compilation, processing or saving of any personal data beyond that provided for by statutory provisions shall only be effected on receipt of your specific consent.

 

(3) Further information on data protection is available to customers within the framework of the Data Protection Declaration in the online shop.

 

§ 4 Conclusion of a Contract

The presentation of our goods does not constitute a legally binding offer. Only the ordering of goods by you constitutes a legally binding offer as set out in § 145 of the German Civil Code. In the case of acceptance of this offer, we will send you an order confirmation by e-mail.

 

§ 5 Payment Terms and Offsetting

(1) Customers can choose to pay for goods by PayPal, invoice, credit card, payment in advance (Vorkasse), GiroPay or cash on delivery (Nachnahme). When paying by cash on delivery, an additional fee becomes payable to the amount of €5, which is charged by the delivery agent locally.

(2) The customer has a right to offset any counterclaims against payment for the order if they are ascertained by law, indisputable or recognised by us.

 

§ 6 Retention of Title

(1) Goods remain our property until full payment has been received. If you default on payment by more than 10 days, we have the right to retire from the contract and demand the return of the goods.

(2) You are entitled to resell goods which are subject to retention of title within the normal course of business. In this case, however, you relinquish to us immediately all claims from a resale of this type to the value of our invoice, regardless of whether this takes place before or after any processing of the goods which remain under retention of title. Notwithstanding our right to collect the claims directly, you remain entitled after this surrender to collect an assigned claim. In connection with this we are obliged not to collect the claim as long as and insofar as you fulfil your payment obligations, no application for the opening of an insolvency procedure or similar is initiated and no suspension of payments occurs. Insofar as the aforementioned securities exceed the claim to be secured by more than 10%, we are obliged to release the securities at our discretion on your request.

 

§ 7 Delivery Terms

(1) We deliver the goods according to the agreements made with you. Any delivery costs incurred are indicated on the relevant product description and are detailed separately by us on the invoice. Delivery times and delivery deadlines are only binding if they have been confirmed by us in writing.

(2) If we cannot complete delivery at all or not according to the contract, you must grant us a grace period to complete the service. Otherwise you are not entitled to retire from the contract.

 

§ 8 Warranty

(1) If the delivered goods are defective, your statutory rights entitle you to demand subsequent fulfilment in the form of repair or the delivery of a non-defect item. The type of subsequent fulfilment is at our discretion. If the subsequent fulfilment is unsuccessful, you are entitled to reduce the purchase price or to retire from the contract. A prerequisite for all warranty rights is that you have properly fulfilled all duties of inspection and objection as set out in § 377 of the German Commercial Code.

(2) The limitation period for warranty claims for the goods supplied - excepting cases of damage claims - is twelve months from receipt of goods.

 

§ 9 Limitation of Liability

(1) We are liable for intent and gross negligence. Furthermore, we are liable for negligent breaches of obligations, the fulfilment of which in the first place enables the proper implementation of the contract and the breach of which endangers the achievement of the contractual purpose and in which compliance you place your trust as a customer. In this last case, we are liable however only for foreseeable damages typical for the contract. We are not liable for the slightly negligent breach of other obligations not mentioned in the above clauses.

These liability disclaimers do not apply to the endangerment of life, limb or health. Liability under product liability law remains unaffected.

(2) Data communication using the internet cannot be guaranteed in the current state of technology to be error-free and/or available at all times. In this respect, we are liable neither for the continual nor the uninterrupted availability of our online trading system.

 

§ 10 Final Provisions

(1) The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies under the exclusion of the UN Sale of Goods law.

(2) Place of execution is Darmstadt/Germany.

(3) If you are a business person, the exclusive court of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with this contract is Darmstadt/Germany.
