1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Duygu Reinholz (hereinafter "Seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") has with the Seller with regard to the seller in his goods presented in the online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless something else has been agreed.
1.2 These General Terms and Conditions shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless expressly agreed otherwise.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
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 enable the customer to submit a binding offer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via 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 contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by telephone.
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 email), whereby receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby 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 above alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the above alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer has sent the offer 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.
2.5 If the "Amazon Payments" payment method is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe sca, 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "Amazon"), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe User Agreement, which can be viewed at https://payments.amazon.de/help/201751590. If the customer selects "Amazon Payments" as the payment method during the online ordering process, by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process, he also issues a payment order to Amazon. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer initiates the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the order process.
2.6 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller does not make the contract text accessible beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.7 Before submitting a binding order via the seller's online order form, the customer can identify 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 enlargement function of the browser, with the help of which the display on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 Order processing and contact are usually made via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct so that the 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 by third parties commissioned to process the order can be delivered.
3) Right of Withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of cancellation can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.
4.3 If one of the payment methods offered via the "Shopify Payments" payment service is selected, the payment will be processed by the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter "Stripe"). The individual payment methods offered via Shopify Payments are communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop. To process payments, Stripe can use other payment services for which special payment conditions may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately. Further information on "Shopify Payments" is available on the Internet at https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms-payments-de.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 Goods are delivered to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the seller's order processing is decisive.
5.2 If delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller as a result. This does not apply with regard to the costs for the delivery if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. If the customer effectively exercises the right of cancellation, the regulation made in the seller's cancellation policy applies to the return costs.
5.3 Collection by the customer is not possible for logistical reasons.
5.4 Vouchers are given to the customer as follows:
6) Retention of title
If the seller pays in advance, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for Defects (Warranty)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the statutory liability for defects applies.
7.2 If the customer acts as a consumer, he is asked 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, this has no effect whatsoever on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Redeeming Gift Certificates
8.1 Vouchers that can be purchased via the seller's online shop (hereinafter "gift vouchers") can only be redeemed in the seller's online shop, unless the voucher states otherwise.
8.2 Gift vouchers and remaining balances on gift vouchers can be redeemed up to the end of the third year following the year in which the voucher was purchased. Remaining credit will be credited to the customer by the expiry date.
8.3 Gift vouchers can only be redeemed before completing the ordering process. Subsequent offsetting is not possible.
8.4 Multiple gift vouchers can be redeemed for one order.
8.5 Gift Vouchers can only be used to purchase Goods and cannot be used to purchase 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 can be chosen to settle the difference.
8.7 The balance of a gift voucher is neither paid out in cash nor does it earn interest.
8.8 The gift voucher is only intended for use by the person named on it. A transfer of the gift voucher to third parties is excluded. The seller is entitled, but not obliged, to check the material entitlement of the respective voucher holder.
9) Governing Law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, 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 has his habitual residence.
10) Alternative Dispute Resolution
10.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet under the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
10.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
