- Terms of delivery, performance deadlines, default of acceptance
(1) The delivery of goods is made by shipping to the delivery address specified by the buyer, unless otherwise agreed. If the customer is a business, the risk of accidental loss and/or accidental deterioration of the goods shall pass to the customer upon handover, in case of shipment upon delivery of the goods to the selected service provider for this purpose.
(2) The goods are usually shipped within 24 hours after receipt of payment. The standard delivery time is 3 days. For custom-made products, the delivery time agreed separately in the contract is decisive.
(3) If delivery periods have been specified by us or have been made the basis for the conclusion of the contract, such periods shall be extended in the event of strikes and cases of force majeure for the duration of the delay. The same shall apply if the customer fails to fulfill any obligations to cooperate. If we are not responsible for a permanent obstacle to delivery, in particular force majeure or non-delivery by our own suppliers, although a corresponding covering transaction was made in good time, we shall have the right to withdraw from a contract with the customer in this respect. The customer will be informed of this immediately and any services received, in particular payments, will be refunded.
(1) Purchased vouchers are valid for 24 months from the date of issue and are transferable at any time. Vouchers are not paid out in cash during their validity and do not bear interest.

- Retention of title and other reservations
In the case of contracts with consumers, we retain ownership of the object of purchase until the purchase price has been paid in full.

- Right of withdrawal
Express reference is made to the separate withdrawal policy for consumers.
- Transport damage
If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, this should be reported to the delivery agent as soon as possible. The customer should contact us immediately. A violation of this obligation has no consequences for the legal claims of the customer and their enforcement, especially with regard to warranty rights. However, by contacting and reporting the damage to the supplier without delay, claims against the carrier or the transport insurance can be secured.
- Product quality – Warranty – Statute of limitations
(1) In the event of a defect, we shall be liable in accordance with the statutory provisions, insofar as no restrictions arise from the following.
(2) If the customer is a business, warranty rights can only be asserted if the customer has properly fulfilled its obligations to inspect the goods and give notice of defects in accordance with § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB).
(3) The limitation period for defect claims for the delivery of new goods is two years, for the delivery of used goods one year. The period shall begin with the transfer of risk. This shall not apply insofar as claims for damages due to defects are concerned. If the customer is a business, the warranty period for all goods shall be limited to one year.
(4) We do not give any guarantees to the customer in the legal sense.
(1) Our liability for contractual breaches of duty and for tort is limited to intent and gross negligence. This shall not apply in the event of injury to life, limb, health or essential contractual obligations which must necessarily be fulfilled in order to achieve the objective of the contract, as well as compensation for damage caused by delay (§ 286 BGB). In this respect, we shall be liable for any degree of fault. In the event of a slightly negligent breach of essential contractual obligations, we shall only be liable for typical and foreseeable damage.
(2) The above limitations of liability shall also apply to all companies affiliated with us as well as to any personal liability of our employees, workers, representatives, shareholders and vicarious agents and/or companies affiliated with us.
(3) Insofar as our liability for damages is excluded or limited, this shall also apply with regard to the personal liability for damages of our employees, representatives and vicarious agents.

(2) The statutory provisions on the places of jurisdiction shall remain unaffected unless otherwise provided for in the special provision of paragraph (3).
(3) If the customer is a merchant under German law, a legal entity under German public law or a special fund under German public law, the place of jurisdiction shall be at our registered office. However, we shall also be entitled to sue the customer at the court of his place of residence. In the case of a contract with a consumer, the place of jurisdiction shall be our registered office if the customer moves his place of residence or habitual abode outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany after conclusion of the contract. This shall also apply if the customer’s place of residence or habitual abode is not known at the time the action is brought.
