1.3 An entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop of the seller do not constitute binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer for the goods in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by email.
2.3 The seller can 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 is decisive, or
- By delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in so far as the access of the goods to the customer is relevant, or
- by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
Where several of the above alternatives are present, the contract shall come into force at the time when one of the above alternatives occurs first. The deadline for the acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the submission of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the submission of the offer. If the seller does not accept the offer of the customer within the aforementioned deadline, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound to his consent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller does not make the contract text accessible beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 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 as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that completes the ordering process.
2.7 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 The order processing and contact usually takes 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 the 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 to process the order can be delivered.

5) Delivery and shipping conditions

If the customer effectively exercises the right of cancellation, the regulation made in the seller's cancellation policy applies to the return costs.
5.3 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold passes to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the forwarding agent, carrier or other person or institution responsible for carrying out the shipment.

The seller will use all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the case of unavailability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded immediately.

7.5 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of Section 1 of the German Commercial Code (HGB), he is subject to the commercial inspection and complaint obligation in accordance with Section 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations stipulated there, the goods are deemed to have been approved.
7.6 If the customer acts as a consumer, he is asked to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
