§3 Conclusion of contract
(1) The presentation and advertising of items in our online shop do not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract.
(2) The contract is concluded via the online shopping cart system as follows:
The goods intended for purchase are placed in the "shopping cart". You can call up the "shopping cart" via a button in the navigation bar and make changes there at any time. After calling up the "Order" page and entering your data as well as the selected payment and shipping options, all order data are finally displayed again on the order overview page. If you use an instant payment system (e.g. PayPal) as a payment method, you will either be taken to the order overview page in our online shop or you will first be redirected to the website of the instant payment system provider. If you are redirected to the respective instant payment system, make the appropriate selection or enter your data there. Finally, you will be redirected back to our online shop to the order overview page. Before submitting the order, you have the possibility to check all details again, to change them (also via the "back" function of the Internet browser) or to cancel the purchase. By sending an order via the online shop by clicking the button "order subject to payment", you place a legally binding order. You are bound to the order for a period of 5 days after placing the order.
(3) We will confirm receipt of your order placed via our online shop immediately by e-mail. Such an e-mail does not constitute a binding acceptance of the order unless, in addition to the confirmation of receipt, the acceptance is declared at the same time.
(4) A contract is only concluded when we accept your order by means of a declaration of acceptance or by delivering the ordered items.
(5) If the delivery of the goods ordered by you is not possible, for example because the corresponding goods are not in stock, we shall refrain from issuing a declaration of acceptance. In this case, a contract is not concluded. We will inform you of this immediately and refund any payment already received without delay.

§4 Terms of delivery and reservation of advance payment
(1) The delivery period for goods which we have in stock is approximately between two (2) and seven (7) working days, depending on the place of delivery and unless otherwise agreed. In all other respects, the delivery and the delivery period shall be subject to the proviso that we ourselves are supplied. Delivery dates and delivery periods are only binding if we have confirmed them in text form.
(2) We are entitled to make partial deliveries insofar as this is reasonable for you.
(3) In the case of orders from customers with their place of residence or business abroad or in the case of justified indications of a risk of non-payment and ff you do not select an immediate payment method, we reserve the right to deliver only after receipt of the purchase price plus shipping costs (advance payment reservation). If we make use of the reservation of advance payment, we will inform you immediately. In this case, the delivery period shall commence upon payment of the purchase price and the shipping costs.
(4) Shipment is at your risk. If you so wish, the goods will be shipped with appropriate transport insurance, whereby the costs arising from this are to be borne by you. If you are a consumer, we bear the shipping risk.

If you choose the display option for commercial customers, the prices quoted are exclusive of the statutory value-added tax applicable at the time.
(2) The shipping costs are indicated in our price quotations in our online shop and are to be borne by the customer. This does not apply if the customer, who is a consumer, makes use of his right of withdrawal. In this case, however, he shall bear the direct costs of the return shipment.

(4) As a buyer, you may only exercise a right of retention if your counterclaim arises from the same purchase contract.

§8 Retention of title
(1) We retain title to the goods until all claims arising from the current business relationship have been settled in full.
(2) As an entrepreneur, you may resell the goods in the ordinary course of business. In this case, you already now assign to us all claims in the amount of the invoice amount accruing to you from the resale; we accept the assignment. You are further authorised to collect the claim. However, insofar as you do not properly fulfil your payment obligations, we reserve the right to collect the claim ourselves.
(3) We undertake to release the securities to which you are entitled at your request insofar as the realisable value of our securities exceeds the claim to be secured by more than 10%. The selection of the securities to be released shall be incumbent upon us.
(4) The pledging or transfer of ownership by way of security of the reserved goods is not permitted.

§9 Warranty
(1) The warranty period for entrepreneurs is one year from delivery of the goods. The one-year warranty period shall not apply to culpably caused damage attributable to us arising from injury to life, limb or health and damage caused by gross negligence or wilful misconduct or fraudulent intent, as well as in the case of claims under a right of recourse pursuant to §§ 478, 479 BGB.
(2) Only our own statements and the manufacturer's product description shall be deemed agreed as the specification of the goods. We accept no liability for other public statements by the manufacturer or other third parties (e.g. advertising statements) to which the purchaser has not drawn our attention as being decisive for his purchase.
(3) As an entrepreneur, you are obliged to inspect the goods immediately and with due care for deviations in quality and quantity and to notify us in writing of any obvious defects within 7 days of receipt of the goods. Timely dispatch is sufficient to meet the deadline. This shall also apply to hidden defects discovered at a later date. The assertion of warranty claims is excluded in the event of a breach of the obligation to inspect and give notice of defects.
(4) As a consumer, we ask you to check the goods immediately upon delivery for completeness, obvious defects and transport damage and to notify us and the carrier of any complaints as soon as possible. If you fail to do so, this shall not affect your statutory warranty claims.
(4) In the event of defects, we shall, at our discretion, provide warranty by rectification or replacement delivery. If the rectification of defects fails, you may, at your discretion, demand a reduction in price or withdraw from the contract. The rectification of defects shall be deemed to have failed after a second unsuccessful attempt, unless the nature of the item or the defect or other circumstances indicate otherwise. In the event of rectification of defects, we shall not be required to bear the increased costs incurred by transporting the goods to a place other than the place of performance, provided that such transport does not correspond to the intended use of the goods.

§10 Liability
(1) We shall be liable to you in all cases of contractual and non-contractual liability in the event of intent and gross negligence in accordance with the statutory provisions for damages or reimbursement of futile expenses.
(2) In other cases, we shall only be liable - unless otherwise stipulated in paragraph 3 - in the event of a breach of a contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract and on the observance of which you as the customer may regularly rely (so-called cardinal obligation), limited to compensation for the foreseeable and typical damage. In all other cases, our liability is excluded subject to the provision in para. 3.
(3) Our liability for damages arising from injury to life, limb or health and under the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected by the above limitations and exclusions of liability.

§11 Copyrights
We have copyrights to all pictures, films and texts published in our online shop. Use of the images, films and texts is not permitted without our express consent.

§12 Final provisions
(1) The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. If you have placed the order as a consumer and have your habitual residence in another country at the time of your order, the application of mandatory legal provisions of this country remains unaffected by the choice of law made in sentence 1.
(2) If you are a merchant and have your registered office in Germany at the time of the order, the exclusive place of jurisdiction is the seller's registered office in Remscheid. Otherwise, the applicable statutory provisions shall apply to the local and international jurisdiction.
(3) The contract language is English.
(4) We do not store the complete text of the contract.
