The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby rejected, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These terms and conditions apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless expressly stipulated otherwise.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these terms and conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly neither be attributed to their commercial nor their independent professional activity. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, is exercising their commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of the contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop of the seller 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 using the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods 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 in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by telephone or email.
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 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 asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the sending of the offer. 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.
