1.4. Different conditions concerning the customer are not recognized unless the seller agrees to their importance in writing.
2. OFFERS AND SERVICE DESCRIPTIONS
2.1. The presentation of products in the online shop is not a legally binding offer, but an invitation to make an order. Service descriptions in catalogs and on the websites of the Seller do not constitute a representation or warranty.
2.2. All offers are valid “while stocks last”, if not stated otherwise in the products. In addition, errors excepted.
3. ORDER PROCESS AND CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT
3.1. The customer can choose products from the seller’s product range without obligation and over the [add-to-cart] button collect them in the so-called shopping cart.
3.2. Afterwards the customer can complete the ordering process by clicking the button [Proceed to Checkout] within the shopping cart.
3.3. By clicking the [buy] button the customer makes a binding offer to purchase the goods in his/her cart. Before submitting the order, the customer can change and revise the data at any time. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*).
3.4. The seller then sends the customer an automatic confirmation of receipt by e-mail, in which the customer’s order is listed again and which the customer can print using the [print] function (order confirmation). The automated confirmation of receipt only documents that the customer’s order is received by the seller and does not constitute the acceptance of the request. The sales contract is first concluded when the seller within 2 days ships or hands over the ordered product to the customer or within 2 days confirmed the shipment with a second e-mail, explicit order confirmation or sending of the invoice.
3.5. Should the seller provide advance payment, the contract is concluded with the provision of bank information and request for payment.
3.6. If payment is not received, despite the due-date, by the seller, even after a second notice until a date 10 calendar days after sending the order confirmation, the seller withdraws from the contract with the result that the order is void and the seller has no obligation to supply. The order is then completed for the buyer and seller without further implications. Therefore a reservation of an article through payment in advance lasts for a maximum of 10 calendar days.
4. PRICES AND COSTS OF SHIPPING
4.1. All prices indicated on the seller’s website are inclusive of the effective legal value-added tax respectively.
4.2. In addition to the indicated prices the seller can charge shipping costs for delivery. The shipping costs will be communicated to the buyer clearly on the shipping page as well as during the ordering process.

5.2 Customers will be informed of delivery times and delivery restrictions (e.g. limiting supplies to certain countries) on a separate information page or within the product description.
6. METHODS OF PAYMENT
6.1. The customer can during and before the end of the ordering process choose from the available payment methods.
6.2. If the purchase on account is possible, payment must be made within 30 days of receipt of goods and invoice. For all other payment methods, payment in advance shall be made without deduction.
6.3. If third party providers are authorized to process payment, e.g. PayPal, their terms and conditions apply.
6.4. If the due date of payment is determined by the calendar, then the customer is already in default when missing the date. In this case, the customer has to pay interest for default at the rate of 5 percentage points above the base rate.
6.5. The customer’s obligation to pay default interest does not rule out the assertion of other damages caused by delay by the seller.
6.6. A right to offset is only entitled to the customer if his counterclaims are legally determined or approved by the seller. The customer may only exercise a right of retention if the claims result from the same contractual relationship.
7. RETENTION OF TITLE
Until full payment, the delivered goods remain in the property of the seller.
8. DEFECTS LIABILITY AND WARRANTY
8.1. The warranty is determined by legal prescriptions.
8.2. A guarantee only exists for the goods supplied by the seller if it has been explicitly stated.

9.3. Furthermore, the seller is liable for the negligent breach of substantial obligations, whose breach endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract, or for the violation of duties, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract feasible in the first place and on which the customer regularly trusts. In this case, however, the seller is liable only for the foreseeable damage typical of the contract. The seller is not liable for the negligent breach of obligations other than those mentioned in the preceding sentences.
9.4. The above-mentioned limitations of liability shall not apply to injury of life, body or health, for a defect after furnishing a guarantee for the quality of the product and for fraudulently concealed defects. Liability under the product liability law remains unaffected.
