1) Scope

1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Constanze Gottfeld (hereinafter "seller") apply to all contracts that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with the seller regarding the goods presented by the seller in his online shop and/or completes services. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless something else has been agreed.

1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

2) Conclusion of contract

2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to enable the customer to submit a binding offer.

2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods and/or services in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer with regard to the goods and/or services contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process .

2.3 The seller can accept the customer's offer within five days,

  • by sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), whereby receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or

  • by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or

  • by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.

If there are several of the above alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the above alternatives occurs first. If the seller does not accept the customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this is deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.

2.4 If the customer selects "PayPal Express" as the payment method during the online ordering process, by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process, he also issues a payment order to his payment service provider. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer initiates the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process, in deviation from Section 2.3.

2.5 The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer has sent the offer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the sending of the offer.

2.6 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) together with these General Terms and Conditions after the order has been sent. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the seller's website and can be accessed by the customer free of charge via his password-protected customer account by entering the relevant login data, provided that the customer has created a customer account in the seller's online shop before sending his order.

2.7 Before the binding submission of the order via the seller's online order form, the customer can continuously correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions. In addition, all entries are displayed again in a confirmation window prior to the binding submission of the order and can also be corrected there using the usual keyboard and mouse functions.

2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.

2.9 The order processing and contact usually takes place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct so that the e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or by third parties commissioned to process the order can be delivered.

3) Right of Withdrawal

3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.

3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in theRight of withdrawalof the seller.

4) Prices and terms of payment

4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.

4.2 The customer has various payment options available, which are specified in the seller's online shop.

4.3 If payment in advance has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract.

4.4 When paying using a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment is processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "PayPal"), under the terms of the PayPal Terms of Use, available athttps://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-fullor - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the conditions for payments without a PayPal account, which can be viewed athttps://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full.

5) Delivery and shipping conditions

5.1 Goods are delivered to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the seller's order processing is decisive. Deviating from this, if the payment method PayPal is selected, the delivery address stored by the customer at PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.

5.2 If the transport company sends the shipped goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer effectively exercises his right of cancellation, if he is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller announced the service a reasonable amount of time in advance.

5.3 Collection by the customer is not possible for logistical reasons.

6) Retention of title

If the seller pays in advance, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.

7) Liability for Defects (Warranty)

7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the statutory liability for defects applies.

7.2 The customer is asked to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the delivery agent and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect whatsoever on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.

8) Governing Law

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law only applies insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.

9) Information on Online Dispute Resolution

The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet under the following link:http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
