1) Scope of Application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Thor Marquardt (hereinafter referred to as "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods, which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online store. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online store do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve for the submission of a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The Customer may submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller's online store. In doing so, after placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.3 The Seller may accept the Customer's offer within five days,
- by sending the Customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the Customer shall be decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer shall be decisive, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed the order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract shall be concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the sending of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.
2.4 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer's order has been sent. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this.
2.5 Before submitting a binding order via the Seller's online order form, the Customer can identify possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better recognition of input errors can be the enlargement function of the browser, with the help of which the display on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 Order processing and contacting usually take place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct, so that e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or by third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
3) Right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of revocation.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices. Sales tax is not shown, as the seller is a small business in the sense of the UStG. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the Customer in the Seller's online store.
4.3 When paying by means of a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment is processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "PayPal"), subject to the PayPal terms of use, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the terms for payments without a PayPal account, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full.
4.4 When selecting a payment method offered via the payment service "Shopify Payments", the payment processing is carried out via the payment service provider Shopify International Limited, Victoria Buildings, 2nd Floor, 1-2 Haddington Road, Dublin 4, D04 XN32, Ireland (hereinafter: "Shopify"). The individual payment methods offered via Shopify will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online store. To process payments, Shopify may use other payment services, for which special payment terms may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately. Further information on "Shopify Payments" is available on the Internet at https://www.shopify.de/payments.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 Goods are delivered by shipping to the delivery address provided by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the Seller's order processing shall be decisive.
5.2 If the transport company returns the shipped goods to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer shall bear the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller had given the customer reasonable advance notice of the service. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the Hinsendung if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. In the case of effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision made in this regard in the seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the return costs.
5.3 Self-collection is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) Retention of title
If the Seller makes advance performance, he shall retain title to the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
7.2 The Customer is requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the delivery person and to inform the Seller thereof. If the customer fails to do so, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Applicable Law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties to the exclusion of the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
9) Alternative Dispute Resolution
9.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts involving a consumer.
9.2 The Seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
