1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Claus Beeck, acting under "Naturleder-Schuhwerk" (hereinafter "seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with the seller concludes with regard to the goods displayed by the seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These terms and conditions apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise stipulated.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these terms and conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor their independent professional activity.
1.4 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, is exercising their commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of the contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent 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 phone, fax, email, post or online contact form.
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 email), whereby the customer's receipt of the order confirmation is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer 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 is deemed to be a rejection of the offer, with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.4 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract will be saved by the seller after the contract has been concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after his order has been sent. Any further provision of the contract text by the seller does not take place. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before submitting his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.5 Before the binding submission of the 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 representation 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 concludes the ordering process.
2.6 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 Order processing and contact are usually made by email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for processing the order 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 third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
3) right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers generally have a right of withdrawal.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of cancellation 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 given are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs that may arise are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 The payment option (s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.
4.3 If prepayment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed a later due date.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 If the seller offers to ship the goods, the delivery takes place within the delivery area specified by the seller to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the seller's order processing is decisive.
5.2 If the delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller. This does not apply with regard to the shipping costs if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer exercises his right of revocation, the provisions made in the seller's instructions on revocation apply.
5.3 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold is transferred to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the freight forwarder, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise assigned to carry out the shipment. If the customer acts as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold is generally only transferred when the goods are handed over to the customer or a person authorized to receive them. Notwithstanding this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold, even in the case of consumers, is already transferred to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the freight forwarder, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise assigned to carry out the shipment, if the customer has commissioned the freight forwarder, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise appointed to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.
5.4 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper self-delivery. This only applies in the event that the seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and the seller has concluded a specific hedging transaction with the supplier with due care. The seller will make every reasonable effort to procure the goods. In the event of the unavailability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be reimbursed immediately.
5.5 If the seller offers the goods for collection, the customer can pick up the ordered goods within the business hours specified by the seller at the address given by the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
5.6 Vouchers are made available to the customer as follows:
- by email
6) Retention of title
If the seller makes an advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
7.1 Unless otherwise stated in the following provisions, the provisions of statutory liability for defects apply. Deviating from this, the following applies to contracts for the delivery of goods:
7.2 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur,
- the seller has the choice of the type of supplementary performance;
- In the case of new goods, the limitation period for defects is one year from delivery of the goods;
- In the case of used goods, the rights and claims due to defects are excluded;
- the statute of limitations does not start again if a replacement delivery is made within the scope of liability for defects.
7.3 The limitations of liability and shortened deadlines set out above do not apply
- for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer,
- in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect,
- for goods that have been used for a building in accordance with their normal use and have caused its defectiveness,
- for any existing obligation on the part of the seller to provide updates for digital products in the case of contracts for the delivery of goods with digital elements.
7.4 In addition, it applies to entrepreneurs that the statutory limitation periods for any existing statutory right of recourse remain unaffected.
7.5 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of Section 1 of the German Commercial Code, he is subject to the commercial inspection and notification obligation in accordance with Section 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). If the customer fails to comply with the notification requirements regulated 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 thereof. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Redemption of campaign vouchers
8.1 Vouchers that are issued free of charge by the seller as part of promotions with a certain period of validity and that cannot be purchased by the customer (hereinafter "promotional vouchers") can only be redeemed in the seller's online shop and only within the specified period.
8.2 Promotion vouchers can only be redeemed by consumers.
8.3 Individual products can be excluded from the voucher campaign, provided that a corresponding restriction results from the content of the campaign voucher.
8.4 Promotion vouchers can only be redeemed before the order process has been completed. Subsequent billing is not possible.
8.5 Only one campaign voucher can be redeemed per order.
8.6 The value of the goods must be at least equal to the amount of the campaign voucher. Any remaining credit will not be refunded by the seller.
8.7 If the value of the campaign voucher is insufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller can be selected to settle the difference.
8.8 The credit of a campaign voucher is neither paid out in cash nor is interest paid.
8.9 The campaign voucher will not be reimbursed if the customer returns the goods paid for in whole or in part with the campaign voucher within the scope of his statutory right of withdrawal.
8.10 The campaign voucher is only intended for use by the person named on it. A transfer of the campaign voucher to third parties is excluded. The seller is entitled, but not obliged, to check the material entitlement of the respective voucher holder.
9) Redeeming gift vouchers
9.1 Vouchers that can be purchased via the seller's online shop (hereinafter "gift vouchers") can only be redeemed in the seller's online shop, unless otherwise stated in the voucher.
9.2 Gift vouchers and the remaining balance of gift vouchers can be redeemed by the end of the third year following the year in which the voucher was purchased. Remaining credit will be credited to the customer until the expiry date.
9.3 Gift vouchers can only be redeemed before the order process has been completed. Subsequent billing is not possible.
9.4 Several gift vouchers can be redeemed for one order.
9.5 Gift vouchers can only be used for the purchase of goods and not for the purchase of other gift vouchers.
9.6 If the value of the gift voucher is insufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller can be selected to settle the difference.
9.7 The balance of a gift voucher is neither paid out in cash nor is interest paid.
9.8 The gift voucher is transferable. The seller can, with a discharging effect, make payments to the respective owner who redeems the gift voucher in the seller's online shop. This does not apply if the seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the non-authorization, legal incapacity or lack of authorization of the respective owner.
10) Applicable Law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law only applies insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
11) Alternative dispute resolution
11.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution under the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
This platform serves as a point of contact for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online sales or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
11.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
