§ 1 SCOPE AND PARTIES
(1) These General Terms and Conditions, in the version applicable at the time an order is placed, govern the relationship between Maximilian Stralka, Harzer Straße 95, 12059 Berlin (the "Seller") and the customer (the "Customer"), and apply to transactions at the Online Store, (the "Online Store"). When placing an order the Customer can access the General Terms and Conditions via the links in the Online Store or save them on his computer and/or print them out. The General Terms and Conditions that apply to the Customer's order will, however, be sent to him separately, together with the acknowledgment and receipt or contract confirmation, as well as when the goods are delivered, on a durable storage media (e.g. as an e-mail, pdf attachment or printout on paper).
Some clauses of these General Terms and Conditions only apply to the Customer if the Customer is a consumer according to Section 13 German Civil Code (“Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch”, BGB). The Customer is deemed to be a consumer if the Customer acquires the goods neither mainly associated with its commercial activities nor mainly associated with its self-employment. Stool Klaus (Maximilian Stralka) expressly makes clear any limitation of applicability of the respective Section.
(2) The following company provides customer service for the Online Store on the Seller's behalf. The Customer may contact it with questions, requests or complaints: Maximilian Stralka, Harzer Straße 95, 12059 Berlin Germany, email@example.com
(3) The range of goods in the Online Store is aimed only at consumers of legal age who can provide a delivery address in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Czech Republic, Hungary, Canada and the USA; Consumer within the meaning of the statutory definition is any natural person acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside his trade, craft or business.
§ 2 THE ORDER PROCESS
(1) The Online Store merely constitutes an invitation to the Customer to make an offer to enter into a purchase contract for the goods presented in the Online Store.
(2) The Customer may select items from the Seller's range of goods and collect these in a "Shopping Cart" by clicking on the "Add to cart" button. By clicking on the button “Complete Order”, the Customer makes an offer to purchase the goods that are in his Shopping Bag (the "Order").
(3) Goods will only be delivered in the quantities usual for private households. For business inquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
(4) Before placing an Order, the Customer can view and amend the details of his Order at any time by clicking on the "Cart" button.
(5) After submitting his Order, the Customer will automatically be sent an acknowledgment of receipt by e-mail with a summary of the details of his Order. This automatic acknowledgment of receipt does not constitute acceptance of the Customer’s offer by the Seller; it merely documents the fact that the Seller has received the Customer’s Order.
(6) A binding contract of sale is first concluded when the Seller accepts the Customer’s Order. The Seller is entitled but not obliged to accept the Customer's offer within 7 days from its receipt. The Seller declares its acceptance by sending the Customer a dispatch confirmation by e-mail (also referred to as the "Contract Confirmation").
(7) If several items are included in an Order, a contract is only concluded in respect of the items expressly mentioned in the Contract Confirmation.
(8) The aforegoing also applies where, due to his selected method of payment, the Customer has already paid the purchase price or given payment instructions before the conclusion of the contract. If for any reason no contract is concluded, the Seller will notify the Customer of this by e-mail (in the case of contractual acceptance in respect of part of the Order, it will do this together with Contract Confirmation in respect of available items), and refund the Customer the pre-payment without delay.
(9) The Customer's statutory right of withdrawal (see § 7) remains unaffected by the preceding provision.
(10) The contract is concluded in English. The Seller will save a copy of the contract wording (consisting of the Order, the General Terms and Conditions and the Contract Confirmation), and forward it to the Customer.
§ 3 DELIVERY, DELIVERY TIMES, AVAILABILITY OF GOODS
(1) Unless agreed otherwise, the goods will be delivered to the Customer at the delivery address provided. Delivery is only available within the above mentioned countries. The Seller will notify the Customer of the delivery time, where appropriate, during the order process, and in the dispatch confirmation. Unless otherwise stated, delivery time for standard deliveries will be approximately 4 to 10 business days from the contract confirmation within the European Union and 7 to 14 business days outside of the European Union (subject to availability). Further information about dispatch options, the carriers used and the delivery process may be viewed on the Online Store's information pages.
(2) After the goods have been handed over to the carrier, the Customer will receive an e -mail with a confirmation of dispatch from the Seller and a tracking link allowing him to monitor the delivery status of his Order. The delivery is made through DHL.
(3) If the Seller is unable for reasons beyond his control to meet a binding delivery deadline (unavailability of goods, for example, due to failure of the Seller's own supplier to deliver or force majeure), it will inform the Customer without delay and, where applicable, specify a new estimated date of delivery. If the new delivery time is unacceptable to the Customer or the goods are also not available within the new delivery time or not available at all, either party will be entitled to rescind the contract in respect of the goods concerned; in this case the Seller will give the Customer a refund for any payment already made. Any statutory rights of the parties will remain unaffected.
§ 4 PRICES AND DELIVERY CHARGES
(1) All of the prices listed on the Seller’s website include the currently applicable statutory value-added tax.
(2) The Seller will notify the Customer, where applicable, of the delivery charges as well as of any additional charges, e.g. for gift wrapping, on the order form immediately before the Order is placed.

§ 9 WARRANTIES
The Customer has certain rights under the law. These include:
(i) that any products supplied by the Seller will be of satisfactory quality, fit for their intended purpose, and will conform to any description given on the Online Store and
(ii) certain remedies if a product is defective.
Nothing in these General Terms and Conditions is intended to affect these rights. The Seller will only be liable for loss or damage in accordance with the provisions of § 10.
The Seller shall not be liable for defects in the goods which are solely attributable to the fact that the Customer has stored the goods incorrectly or inappropriately. The regulation of § 477 BGB remains unaffected, i.e. if the Customer is a consumer and such a defect appears within six months after transfer of risk [“Gefahrübergang”], i.e. after the goods have been delivered to the Customer or the Customer is in default of acceptance (§ 446 BGB), Maximilian Stralka must prove that the defect is due to the Customer´s incorrect or unsuitable storage of the goods. If Maximilian Stralka does not succeed in doing so or if the cause of the defect or the time of occurrence of this cause remains open, the presumption that the defect already existed at the time of delivery or the occurrence of the Customer´s default of acceptance shall apply in the Customer´s favour. This shall not apply if the presumption is incompatible with the nature of the goods or the defect.
The Seller is also not responsible for damage to the objects transported or stored in the goods if these are exclusively due to improper use of the goods. Information on the nature of the goods, their suitability for certain purposes and their use can be found in our product information on the goods (description on our website, instructions for use, etc.).
§ 10 LIABILITY
We are always liable without limitation for claims due to damages caused by us, our legal representatives or performing agents [“Erfüllungsgehilfen”]
in the event of injury to life, body or health,
if the cause of damage is based on intentional or grossly negligent conduct,
to the extent of a guarantee assumed by us,
in the event of malicious concealment of defects, and
to the extent that the Product Liability Act applies.
In case of negligent behaviour on our part, on the part of our legal representatives or vicarious agents [“Erfüllungsgehilfen”], we shall only be liable in the event of a breach of material contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which is material for the proper performance of the contract and on the observance of which the contractual partner may ordinarily rely [“Kardinalpflichten”]. Our liability in this case shall be limited in amount to the damage which is foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract and the occurrence of which has to be typically expected.
Otherwise, our liability – including that for performing agents [“Erfüllungsgehilfen”] and vicarious agents [“Verrichtungsgehilfen”] – is excluded.
