2 Conclusion of the Contract

2.1 The product descriptions in the Seller’s online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but merely serve the purpose of submitting a binding offer by the Client.

2.2 The Client may submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller’s online shop. In doing so, after having placed the selected goods and/or services in the virtual basket and passed through the ordering process, and by clicking the button finalizing the order process, the Client submits a legally binding offer of contract with regard to the goods and/or services contained in the shopping cart. The Client may also submit his offer to the Seller by telephone, fax, e-mail, postal service or per online contact form.

2.3 In case of ordering goods presented in the Seller’s print catalogue, the Client may submit his offer by telephone, fax, e-mail or postal service. For this purpose, the Client may fill in the order form attached to the Seller’s print catalogue and return it to the Seller.

2.4 The Seller may accept the Client’s offer within five days,

  • by transferring a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in written form (fax or e-mail); insofar receipt of order confirmation by the Client is decisive, or
  • by delivering ordered goods to the Client; insofar receipt of goods by the customer is decisive, or
  • by requesting the Client to pay after he placed his order.

Provided that several of the aforementioned alternatives apply, the contract shall be concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives firstly occurs. Should the Seller not accept the Client’s offer within the aforementioned period of time, this shall be deemed as rejecting the offer with the effect that the Client is no longer bound by his statement of intent..

2.5 If the Client chooses “PayPal Express” when placing his order, payment processing is handled by the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as “PayPal”). The PayPal terms of use shall apply which can be viewed at: https://www.paypal.com/ie/webapps/mpp/ua/servicedescription-full?locale.x=en_IE.

If the Client chooses “PayPal Express” as payment method, he initiates also a payment order to PayPal by clicking the button finalizing the order process. In this case, the Seller declares his acceptance of the Client’s offer already at the time when the Client initiates the payment transaction by clicking the button finalizing the ordering process.

2.6 When submitting an offer via the Seller’s online order form, the text of the contract is stored by the Seller after the contract has been concluded and transmitted to the Client in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller shall not make the contract text accessible beyond this. If the Client has set up a user account in the Seller’s online shop prior to sending his order, the order data shall be stored on the Seller’s website and can be accessed by the Client free of charge via his password-protected user account by specifying the corresponding login data.

2.7 Prior to submitting a binding order via the Seller’s online order form, the Client may recognize input errors by reading attentively the information displayed on the screen.

2.8 The German and the English language are exclusively available for the conclusion of the contract.

2.9 Order processing and contacting usually takes place via e-mail and automated order processing. It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that the e-mail address he provides for the order processing is accurate so that e-mails sent by the Seller can be received at this address.
