A consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes which are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. Entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership that, in the course of entering into a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity.

With regard to entrepreneurs, these terms and conditions also apply to future business relationships, without us having to refer to them again.

The payment transaction will be carried out automatically by PayPal immediately after confirmation of the payment order. You’ll get more information during the ordering process.

If you have chosen the payment method credit card, you do not have to be registered with PayPal in order to pay the invoice amount. The payment transaction will be processed by your credit card company at the request of PayPal and your card will be charged immediately upon confirmation of the money order and after your legitimacy as the legitimate cardholder. You’ll get more information during the ordering process.

If you have selected the method of payment direct debit, you do not have to be registered with PayPal in order to pay the invoice amount. By confirming the payment order you give PayPal a direct debit mandate. About the date of the account you will be informed by PayPal (so-called Prenotification). Upon submitting the direct debit mandate immediately after confirming the payment order, PayPal will ask its bank to initiate the payment transaction. The payment transaction will be processed and your account will be charged. You’ll get more information during the ordering process.

6. Retention of title

The goods remain our property until full payment.

For entrepreneurs applies in addition: We reserve the ownership of the goods until the complete settlement of all claims from an ongoing business relationship. You may resell the reserved goods in ordinary business; All claims arising from this resale shall be assigned to us in advance – irrespective of any combination or mixing of the goods subject to retention of title with a new item – and we accept this assignment. You remain authorized to collect the claims, but we may also collect claims yourself, as long as you do not meet your payment obligations.

7. Transport damage

For consumers:

If goods are delivered with obvious damage in transit, please complain such errors as soon as possible to the deliverer and please contact us immediately. The failure to file a complaint or contact has no consequences for your statutory claims and their enforcement, in particular your warranty rights. However, they help us claim our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.

For entrepreneurs applies:

The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration will be transferred to you as soon as we have delivered the item to the freight forwarder, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise responsible for carrying out the shipment. For merchants, the duty to inspect and to reprimand, which is regulated in § 377 HGB, applies. If you refrain from doing so, the goods are deemed to have been approved unless they are defects that were not identifiable during the inspection. This does not apply if we have fraudulently concealed a defect.

8. Warranty and Guarantees

Unless explicitly agreed otherwise below, the statutory warranty rights apply.

When buying used goods by consumers applies: if the defect occurs after one year from delivery of the goods, the claims for defects are excluded. Defects that occur within one year from delivery of the goods can be asserted within the statutory limitation period of two years from the delivery of the goods.

For entrepreneurs, the limitation period for claims for defects in newly manufactured items is one year from the passing of risk. The sale of used goods is under exclusion of any warranty. The statutory limitation periods for the recourse claim under § 445a BGB remain unaffected.

With regard to entrepreneurs, the only agreement that applies to the condition of the goods is our own details and the manufacturer’s product descriptions that were included in the contract; We accept no liability for public statements made by the manufacturer or other advertising statements.

If the delivered goods are defective, we initially provide to entrepreneurs at our discretion warranty by rectification of the defect (rectification) or by delivery of a defect-free item (replacement).
