2. Online Orders
The CUSTOMER may select products and vouchers offered by SELLER and may use the button “Add to shopping cart” to collect them in the shopping cart. If the CUSTOMER clicks on the button “Checkout”, a binding proposal to purchase the goods in the shopping cart is placed (“Order”).
Before ordering, the CUSTOMER may view and modify the ordered goods at any time. Modifications to the order can be made by means of the button “Modify” placed above the order data or via the links of the individual order data fields and through the function button “Return”.
After placing the order, the CUSTOMER receives an automatic mail confirming receipt of the order and reflecting the order details as placed by the CUSTOMER. This automatic confirmation cannot be considered an acceptance of the order, but is a mere documentation that the order has been received by the SELLER.
The purchase agreement is concluded upon the SELLER’S statement of acceptance. The SELLER declares an order as accepted via a shipment confirmation sent by mail.
If the order consists of various items, the agreement is only concluded with respect to the items as explicitly listed in the shipment confirmation.
It may happen from time to time that individual items cannot be delivered after the order has been placed. If the customer has paid the amount due or authorized its payment before the contract has been concluded due to the payment method selected, the seller will notify the buyer of the refusal of the order (or parts of the order in case of acceptance of the order for items which can be delivered) and promptly reimburse the remaining (pro ratio) amount. The above is also valid if the seller refuses to accept the order due to a negative result of the fraud or credit rating check (see also section C II of the data protection provisions). In these cases we will not charge any compensation because of refunding.
Within a reasonable time after conclusion of the contract, the customer shall receive a confirmation of contract via mail or together with the items delivered, at the latest. Moreover, registered customers can check the current orders in their personal customer account.
