2. The range of goods in our online shop is aimed exclusively at buyers who have reached the age of 18.

3. Our deliveries, services and offers are made exclusively on the basis of these General Terms and Conditions. The general terms and conditions also apply to companies for all future business relationships, even if they are not expressly agreed again. The inclusion of a customer's general terms and conditions that contradict our general terms and conditions is already contradicted.

4. Contract language is english.


§ 2 Conclusion of 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 in the online shop.

2. By clicking on the button ["Order now with obligation to pay" / "buy"] you submit a binding purchase offer (§ 145 BGB).

3. After receipt of the purchase offer, you will receive an automatically generated e-mail in which we confirm that we have received your order (confirmation of receipt). This confirmation of receipt does not yet represent acceptance of your purchase offer. A contract is not yet concluded through the confirmation of receipt.

4. A purchase contract for the goods is only concluded when we expressly declare acceptance of the purchase offer (order confirmation) or when we send the goods to you - without a prior express declaration of acceptance.


§ 3 Prices

The prices stated on the product pages include the statutory VAT and other price components and do not include the respective shipping costs. Further information on the shipping costs is available on our website under ["Shipping Information" / "Terms of Delivery"].


§ 4 terms of payment; default

1. Payment can be made either by: invoice in advance, Credit card,

2. We are responsible for selecting the available payment methods. In particular, we reserve the right to only offer you selected payment methods for payment, for example only prepayment to protect our credit risk.

§ 6 Delivery; retention of title

2. The goods remain our property until the purchase price has been fully paid.

3. As an exception, we are not obliged to deliver the ordered goods if we have properly ordered the goods on our part, but have not been supplied correctly or on time (congruent hedging transaction). The prerequisite is that we are not responsible for the lack of availability of the goods and have informed you of this circumstance immediately. In addition, we must not have assumed the risk of procuring the ordered goods. If the goods are unavailable, we will immediately reimburse you for payments already made. We do not assume the risk of having to procure an ordered product (procurement risk). This also applies when ordering goods that are only described in terms of their type and characteristics (generic goods). We are only obliged to deliver from our stock of goods and the goods we have ordered from our suppliers.

4. If you are an entrepreneur within the meaning of § 14 BGB, the following also applies: We reserve ownership of the goods until all claims from the current business relationship have been settled in full. Pledging or assignment as security is not permitted before ownership of the reserved goods has passed. You may resell the goods in the ordinary course of business. In this case, you assign to us all claims in the amount of the invoice amount that accrue to you from the resale. We accept the assignment, but you are authorized to collect the claims. If you do not meet your payment obligations properly, we reserve the right to collect claims ourselves. If the reserved goods are combined and mixed, we acquire co-ownership of the new item in relation to the invoice value of the reserved goods to the other processed items at the time of processing. We undertake to release the securities to which we are entitled upon request insofar as the realizable value of our securities exceeds the claims to be secured by more than 10%. We are responsible for selecting the securities to be released.

End of revocation

1. The right of withdrawal does not apply to delivery goods that are not prefabricated and for the production of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer (e.g. T-shirts with your photo and name), sealed goods which are not suitable for return for reasons of health protection or hygiene if their seal has been removed after delivery, of goods if these were inseparably mixed with other goods after delivery due to their nature, audio or video recordings or computer software in a sealed package if unsealed after delivery, newspapers, periodicals or magazines with the exception of subscription contracts.

If necessary, use protective outer packaging. If you no longer have the original packaging, please use suitable packaging to ensure adequate protection against transport damage in order to avoid claims for damages due to damage caused by defective packaging.

§ 8 Damage in transit

1. If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, please report such errors to the deliverer immediately and contact us as soon as possible.

2. The omission of a complaint or contact has no consequences for your statutory warranty rights. However, they help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.


§ 9 Warranty

1. Unless expressly agreed otherwise, your warranty claims are based on the statutory provisions of sales law (§§ 433 ff. BGB).

2. If you are a consumer within the meaning of Section 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB), the limitation period for warranty claims for used items - in deviation from the statutory provisions - is one year. This limitation does not apply to claims based on damage resulting from injury to life, limb or health or from the breach of an essential contractual obligation, the fulfillment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely (cardinal obligation). as well as for claims due to other damages based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the user or his vicarious agents.

3. Otherwise, the statutory provisions apply to the warranty.

4. If you are an entrepreneur within the meaning of § 14 BGB, the statutory provisions apply with the following modifications:


Only our own information and the manufacturer's product description are binding for the quality of the goods, but not public promotions and statements and other advertising by the manufacturer. You are obliged to examine the goods immediately and with due care for deviations in quality and quantity and to notify us of obvious defects within 7 days of receipt of the goods. Timely dispatch is sufficient to meet the deadline. This also applies to hidden defects found later upon discovery. In the event of a breach of the obligation to examine and give notice of defects, the assertion of warranty claims is excluded. In the event of defects, we shall provide a warranty, at our discretion, by rectification or replacement delivery (subsequent performance). In the case of rectification, we do not have to bear the increased costs that arise from transporting the goods to a location other than the place of performance if the transport does not correspond to the intended use of the goods. If the supplementary performance fails twice, you can either demand a price reduction or withdraw from the contract. The warranty period is one year from date of delivery.

§10 Liability

1. Unlimited liability: We have unlimited liability for intent and gross negligence as well as in accordance with the Product Liability Act. For slight negligence, we are liable for damage resulting from injury to life, limb and health of persons.

2. The following limited liability also applies: In the case of slight negligence, we are only liable in the event of a breach of an essential contractual obligation, the fulfillment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on the observance of which you can regularly rely (cardinal obligation). The amount of liability for slight negligence is limited to the damage that was foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded and the occurrence of which must typically be expected. This limitation of liability also applies to our vicarious agents.

§ 11 Alternative Dispute Resolution

The EU Commission has provided a platform for out-of-court dispute resolution. This gives consumers the opportunity to initially settle disputes in connection with their online order without going to court. The dispute settlement platform can be reached via the external link https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. We endeavor to settle any differences of opinion arising from our contract by mutual agreement. In addition, we are not obliged to participate in an arbitration procedure and unfortunately cannot offer you participation in such a procedure.


§ 12 Final Provisions

1. Should one or more provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be or become invalid, this will not affect the validity of the other provisions.

2. German law applies exclusively to contracts between us and you, excluding the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG, "UN Sales Convention"). Mandatory provisions of the country in which you usually reside remain unaffected by the choice of law.

3. If you are a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, our place of business is the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with contracts between us and you.
