2. CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT
2.1 The offers of the Seller are non-binding invitations to the Customer to order products.
2.2 To place an order, the customer selects products in the online shop and places them in the shopping cart by clicking on the “Buy” button. If the customer is logged in, he can select his payment method in the next step. Otherwise, the customer must log in with his customer data or firstly register in the online shop before he can proceed with his order and select his payment method. At the end of the order summary that is then displayed, the customer makes a binding offer to purchase the products in the shopping cart by clicking the “Order now” button, and thus accepts the validity of these GTC.
2.3 Before submitting the offer, the customer can check the data entered, the selected payment method and the selected products, change them or cancel the purchase by using the technical options provided for this purpose or clicking on the “Back” button in his internet browser. The customer is asked to check his information carefully before submitting his order.

2.6 Following the conclusion of the contract, the Seller will send the customer an automatic confirmation by e-mail stating the order number and once again listing the GTC.
2.7 The Seller will not store the text of the contract in a form that is visible for the customer. Therefore, the customer should keep all documents that he receives from the Seller.
2.8 The product images provide an approximate guide only. Deviations in the design and colour compared to the images are acceptable insofar as these lie in the nature of the materials used and/or are customary in the trade. The figures are binding if the Seller designates them accordingly.
2.9 Product improvements made by the Seller can lead to changes in the design and materials of the products. The Seller accordingly reserves the right to make changes insofar as they are reasonable for the customer in consideration of the interests of the Seller.

If the Seller withdraws from the contract, it will immediately reimburse the customer for any payment already made.

7.2 The statutory warranty rights apply for all deliveries.
7.3 Accordingly, in the case of material defects, the customer is firstly entitled to request subsequent delivery or improvement of the product (supplementary performance), at his discretion. The customer must grant the Seller an appropriate deadline for this. Supplementary performance is deemed to be unsuccessful in particular if the Seller has unsuccessfully tried the improvement twice.
7.4 If supplementary performance fails, the appropriate supplementary performance period is exceeded or supplementary performance is refused in accordance with the statutory provisions, the customer has a right to withdraw from the purchase contract or reduction of the purchase price.
7.5 Claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses exist only in accordance with Clause 8.
7.6 If the Seller delivers a new product to the customer by means of supplementary performance, the customer must return the defective product to the Seller at the Seller’s expense within 14 days.

8.2 In the case of simple negligence, the Seller is only liable in the event of a breach of a significant contractual obligation, limited to the replacement of the foreseeable, typically occurring damage. A fundamental contractual obligation is an obligation, the fulfilment of which is essential for the purpose pursued with the conclusion of the contract to be reached in the first place, and on the fulfilment of which the customer may normally rely.
8.3 The limitation of liability pursuant to clause 8.2 does not apply to damages arising from injury to life, limb or health. In addition, it does not apply in the case of fraudulent concealment or a guarantee that has exceptionally been given by the Seller for the quality of the product or if the Customer has claims under the Product Liability Act.
8.4 Insofar as the liability of the Seller is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of its employees, representatives and vicarious agents.
