General Terms & Conditions

§ 1 General, scope of application of the GTCs
1.1 All deliveries and services are provided exclusively on the basis of the following General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “GTC”) in the version valid at the time of the order.
1.2 The contracting party is Alexander Müller (hereinafter “Seller”).
1.3 Customers within the meaning of these Terms and Conditions may be consumers (hereinafter “Customer”). Consumers within the meaning of the Terms and Conditions are natural persons who conclude contracts for a purpose that can predominantly be attributed neither to their commercial nor to their professional activity.
§ 2 Conclusion of the contract, conclusion of the contract
2.1 The offers and article presentations do not constitute a binding offer. Only your order is a binding offer according to § 145 of the German Civil Code (BGB), which we can accept. After sending the order, we will first send you an order receipt confirmation by e-mail. If we accept your order, you will receive an order confirmation by e-mail after receipt of your order, with which the contract is concluded.
2.2 Once you have found the product you want, you can take a closer look at it without obligation by clicking on the product name or the product image. By clicking on the button [Add to shopping cart] you can place the item in the shopping cart. You can view the contents of the shopping basket without obligation at any time by clicking on the [Shopping Basket] button. You can remove or change the products from the shopping basket by clicking on the [Change] and [Delete] graphics. If you want to buy the products in the shopping basket, click on the [Checkout] button on the “Shopping Basket” page. In the course of the further ordering process, you set up a customer account with us for your first purchase and select the shipping method and the payment method. In the last step, you will receive an overview of your order data under “Order information” and can check all details again and [correct] or change them. You can also correct input errors by navigating backwards in the browser or by cancelling the order process and starting again. To complete the purchase, you must accept our General Terms and Conditions and press the [Buy] button. This will send the order to us.

If the payment is not received by the Seller within 10 calendar days after the order confirmation has been sent, despite the due date and a reminder from the Customer, the Seller shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract, whereby the order shall lapse and the Seller shall be released from its delivery obligation. At this point, the order is deemed to be completed without any further consequences for the customer or the seller. Products for which advance payment is offered can therefore be reserved for a maximum of 10 calendar days.
§ 3 Storage of the contract text
We store your order, the order data entered and the entire text of the contract. We will send you an order receipt confirmation by e-mail and subsequently an order confirmation with all order data.

To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from this contract by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter or e-mail sent by post). You can use the attached model withdrawal form for this purpose, which is, however, not mandatory. In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the expiry of the revocation period.
Consequences of withdrawal: If you revoke this contract, we must reimburse you for the cost of the product, as well as the delivery costs. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used in the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will you be charged any fees because of this repayment. We may refuse repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is the earlier. You must return or hand over the goods to us without delay and in any case no later than fourteen days from the day on which you notify us of the cancellation of this contract. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the expiry of the period of fourteen days. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods. You only have to pay for any loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is due to handling of the goods that is not necessary for checking the condition, properties and functioning of the goods.
2.Exclusion of the right of withdrawal – The right of revocation does not exist:
• In the case of contracts for the supply of goods which are not prefabricated and for the manufacture of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer,

10.2 The Seller shall be liable without limitation if damage has been caused intentionally or by gross negligence.
10.3 The Seller shall also be liable for slight negligence in the event of a breach of essential obligations, the breach of which jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of the contract, as well as in the event of a breach of obligations, the fulfilment of which makes the proper performance of the contract possible in the first place and on the observance of which the customer may regularly rely. In this case, however, the Seller’s liability shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract. The Seller shall not be liable in the event of a slightly negligent breach of obligations other than those referred to in the above sentences.
10.4 The above limitations of liability shall not apply in the event of damage resulting from injury to life, limb or health, in the event of defects which were discovered after a guarantee for the quality of the product was given or in the event of defects which were fraudulently concealed.
