§ 2 Conclusion of the contract

(1) The presentation of goods in the online shop does not constitute a binding application for the conclusion of a purchase contract. Rather, it is a non-binding invitation to order goods at the online shop.

(2) By clicking on the "Buy" button, you make a binding purchase offer (Section 145 of the German Civil Code).

(3) Upon receipt of the purchase offer, you will receive an automatically generated e-mail confirming that we have received your order (order confirmation). A binding contract is concluded upon receipt of the order confirmation. Please note that the delivery of the ordered goods will be made in advance (reservation) as soon as payment of the full purchase price as well as any shipping costs has been received by us. Therefore, we kindly ask you to make the transfer of the purchase price immediately after receipt of the order confirmation, but at the latest within 10 days.

  • In the event of defects, we shall, at our option, provide warranty by repair or replacement delivery (subsequent performance). In the case of rectification, we do not have to bear the increased costs incurred by moving the goods to a place other than the place of performance, unless the shipment corresponds to the intended use of the goods.
