1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Andreas Schröter, acting as "Andreas Schröter" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can predominantly neither be attributed to his commercial nor his self-employed professional activity. Entrepreneur in the sense of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
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 submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping basket and completing the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by clicking the button completing the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by e-mail.
2.3 The Seller may 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 the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after placing his order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the dispatch of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is stored by the seller after conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after dispatch of the customer's order. The seller shall not make the contract text accessible beyond this.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is stored by the seller after conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after sending the customer's order. The seller shall not make the contract text accessible beyond this.
2.6 Prior to binding submission of the order via the Seller's online order form, the Customer may recognize possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better recognition of input errors can be the zoom function of the browser, with the help of which the display on the screen is enlarged. Within the framework of the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button completing the ordering process.
2.7 The order processing and establishment of contact usually take 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 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 third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
3.1 In principle, consumers are entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of revocation can be found in the seller's revocation instructions.
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be stated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may be incurred in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds if the delivery is not made to a country outside the European Union but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.
4.3 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.
4.4 If prepayment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
5.1 Unless otherwise agreed, goods shall be delivered by shipment to the delivery address specified by the customer. The delivery address stated in the Seller's order processing is decisive for the transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, when selecting the payment method PayPal, the delivery address provided by the Customer to PayPal at the time of payment shall be decisive.
5.2 If the carrier returns the shipped goods to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer shall bear the costs of the unsuccessful shipment. This shall not apply if the customer 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 had given him reasonable notice of the service in advance. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the shipment if the customer exercises his right of revocation effectively. In the event that the customer exercises the right of revocation effectively, the provision of the seller's revocation policy shall apply to the return costs.
5.3 Self-collection is not possible for logistical reasons.
5.4 Vouchers shall be handed over to the customer as follows:
- by e-mail
If the seller makes an advance payment, he shall retain title to the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of statutory liability for defects shall apply.
7.2 The customer is requested to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual warranty claims.
8.1 Vouchers which can be purchased via the online shop of the seller (hereinafter referred to as "gift vouchers") can only be redeemed in the online shop of the seller, unless otherwise stated in the voucher.
8.2 Gift vouchers and remaining credit of gift vouchers are redeemable until the end of the third year after the year of the voucher purchase. Remaining credit will be credited to the customer up to the expiry date.
8.3 Gift vouchers can only be redeemed before the completion of the order process. Subsequent settlement is not possible.
8.4 Several gift vouchers can also be redeemed for one order.
8.5 Gift vouchers can only be used for the purchase of goods and not for the purchase of further gift vouchers.
8.6 If the value of the gift voucher is not sufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the Seller may be selected to settle the difference.
8.7 The credit balance of a gift voucher is neither paid in cash nor interest is paid on it.
8.8 The Gift Certificate is transferable. The Seller may, with discharging effect, make payment to the respective owner who redeems the gift voucher in the Seller's online shop. This does not apply if the seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the nonauthorization, the legal incapacity or the lack of power of representation of the respective owner.
All legal relationships between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws governing the international sale of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
10.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
This platform serves as a contact point for out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online sales or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
10.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
