It is possible that you can pay the purchase price or part of it by redeeming these promotional vouchers. However, this option is only available during the period specified on the promotional voucher. The respective promotional voucher may only be redeemed once per customer.

§ 6 Delivery conditions

(1) The delivery period is usually approximately 3-5 working days, unless otherwise agreed. It begins upon conclusion of the contract.


(2) We are entitled to make partial deliveries as long as this is reasonable for you.


(3) In rare cases, deliveries may be delayed due to disruptions in business operations for which we are not responsible, such as strikes or cases of force majeure that are the result of an unforeseeable and unavoidable event. In these cases, the delivery time will be extended by the duration of the disruption caused by these circumstances. We will inform you of this immediately. If these disruptions mean that we cannot deliver the goods you have ordered within one month of the order date, you can withdraw from the contract concluded with us. Other claims, in particular statutory rights of withdrawal, to which you are entitled regardless of the disruption that has occurred, remain unaffected.


(4) If there is no purchase of consumer goods, i.e. you are not ordering as a consumer but for purposes that are predominantly attributable to your commercial or self-employed activity, Section 447 of the German Civil Code (BGB) applies.

In addition to obvious material and manufacturing defects, this also includes transport damage. However, you are not obliged to complain about the defect unless your purchase is a commercial transaction for both parties, so that you are subject to a complaint obligation in accordance with Section 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). However, by complaining, we can guarantee that we will promptly fulfill your warranty claims in accordance with paragraph 2 and, if necessary, assert recourse claims against our service providers.


(2) If the delivered goods are defective, we are liable in accordance with the statutory provisions. This means that you can demand a new delivery of the defective goods (subsequent performance) or, if subsequent performance is rightly refused by us, fails, is impossible or is unreasonable for you, you can withdraw from the contract or reduce the purchase price and claim damages. Liability in accordance with Section 10 of these General Terms and Conditions remains unaffected by this. The limitation period for statutory claims for defects is two years and begins with the delivery of the goods.


(3) If we or the manufacturer have given a guarantee for certain goods, the guarantee claims are in addition to the claims for material or legal defects within the meaning of paragraph 2. If such a guarantee is given to you, we will inform you of this and, if applicable, attach the guarantee conditions to the order.

§ 10 Liability

(1) Should you suffer damage due to contractual or non-contractual misconduct caused by us, our vicarious agents or our legal representatives, we shall be liable to you in all cases of intent and gross negligence in accordance with the statutory provisions for damages or reimbursement of wasted expenses.


(2) In other cases, unless otherwise provided in paragraph 3, we shall only be liable for breach of a contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on whose compliance you as a customer may regularly rely (so-called cardinal obligation), and shall be limited to compensation for foreseeable and contract-typical damage.


(3) Our liability for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health remains unaffected by the above limitations and exclusions of liability. In addition, the above limitations and exclusions of liability do not apply to legally mandatory strict liability, in particular product liability, or liability arising from a strict guarantee.

§ 12 Dispute settlement procedure

Dispute resolution: The EU Commission has created an internet platform for online dispute resolution. The platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes concerning contractual obligations arising from online sales contracts. Further information is available at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.


§ 13 Applicable law and place of jurisdiction

(1) The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies, excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

(2) If you are a merchant and have your registered office in Germany at the time of ordering, the exclusive place of jurisdiction is the registered office of the seller, Munich. Otherwise, the applicable statutory provisions apply to local and international jurisdiction.


§ 14 Severability Clause
