By clicking the "Buy Now" button, by email, telephone, fax or other communication channels, the customer submits a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract (order) for the goods contained in the shopping cart.

4. Until the transfer of ownership to the buyer, the customer is obliged to notify the seller immediately of third-party access to the goods, for example in the event of attachment, as well as any damage or destruction of the goods.

6. The entrepreneur is entitled to resell the goods in the ordinary course of business. He already assigns the claim to the seller in the amount of the invoice amount, which accrues to him from the resale against a third party. The seller accepts the assignment. After the assignment, the entrepreneur is entitled to collect the claim. The seller reserves the right to collect the claim itself as soon as the entrepreneur fails to meet his payment obligations and is in default.
7. The processing and processing of the goods by the entrepreneur is always done in the name and on behalf of the seller. If processing is carried out with objects not belonging to the seller, the seller acquires co-ownership of the new item in relation to the value of the goods delivered by the seller, to the other processed objects. The same applies if the goods are mixed with other things that do not belong to the seller.

For entrepreneurs, the prices are net and do not include VAT.

The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS), which you can find under the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
In the event of a dispute over a consumer contract, we do not participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board. For us there is no obligation to participate.

§ 8 Warranty
1. Consumers have the choice of whether the supplementary performance should take the form of rectification or replacement delivery. The seller is entitled to refuse the type of supplementary performance chosen if it is only possible with disproportionate costs and the other type of supplementary performance remains without significant disadvantages for the consumer.
In the case of companies, the seller initially provides a guarantee for defects in the goods by rectification or replacement delivery.
2. If the rectification fails, the customer can in principle choose between a reduction in the remuneration (reduction), cancellation of the contract (withdrawal) or compensation instead of performance. If the customer chooses compensation instead of the service, the liability restrictions according to § 9 numbers 1 and 2 apply. However, the customer is not entitled to withdraw from the contract if there are only minor defects.
3. Entrepreneurs must notify the seller of obvious defects in writing within a period of one week from receipt of the goods, otherwise the assertion of warranty claims is excluded. To meet the deadline, it is sufficient to send the notification in good time. The entrepreneur bears the full burden of proof for all requirements for claims, in particular for the defect itself, for the time at which the defect was found and for the timely notification of the defect.
4. The warranty period for consumers is two years from delivery of the goods. The warranty period for entrepreneurs is one year from delivery of the goods. The warranty period for used items is one year from delivery of the goods.

1. In the event of slightly negligent breaches of duty, the seller's liability is limited to the foreseeable, typical, direct average damage. This also applies to a slightly negligent breach of duty by the legal representative or vicarious agent of the seller. We are not liable to the company for slightly negligent breach of insignificant contractual obligations.
2. The above limitations of liability do not affect the customer's claims arising from product liability.
3. If the seller provides access to other websites with links, the seller is not responsible for the content contained therein. The seller does not adopt the third-party content.

§ 10 Privacy

The customer has no other rights in this connection.
§ 12 Final provisions
1. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies. For consumers who do not conclude the contract for professional or commercial purposes, 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 is habitually resident.
The provision of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply.
2. If the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is the seller's place of business. The same applies if the customer has no general place of jurisdiction in Germany or if his place of residence or habitual residence is not known at the time the lawsuit is filed.
Should individual provisions of the contract with the customer, including these general terms and conditions, be or become ineffective in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The completely or partially ineffective regulation is to be replaced by a regulation whose economic success comes as close as possible to the ineffective one.
