1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as “GTC”) of ADE Germany GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “Seller”) shall apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”) with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online shop. The inclusion of the Customer’s own general terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly not attributable to his or her commercial or self-employed professional activity. (§13 BGB) An entrepreneur within the meaning of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his commercial or self-employed professional activity. (§14 para. 1 BGB)
2) CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller’s online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve for the submission of a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated in the seller’s online shop. In doing so, after placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping basket and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.3 The order is subject to the conclusion of the contract through the acceptance of the offer by the seller.
2.4 If a payment method offered by PayPal is selected, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à. r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: “PayPal”), subject to the PayPal terms and conditions of use, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or – if the customer does not have a PayPal account – subject to the terms and conditions for payments without a PayPal account, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the customer pays by means of a payment method offered by PayPal that can be selected in the online ordering process, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer’s offer at the time the customer clicks the button that concludes the ordering process. The Seller accepts no liability whatsoever for the content of the aforementioned GTCs.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the Seller’s online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer’s order has been sent. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract 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 accessed by the customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before bindingly placing 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 display on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contacting usually take 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 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 by the seller to process the order can be delivered.

The payment transaction is then immediately carried out by “SOFORT” and the customer’s bank account is debited.

5) DELIVERY AND SHIPPING CONDITIONS

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 as a result.

5.3 Self-collection is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) RESERVATION OF OWNERSHIP
The seller retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) LIABILITY FOR DEFECTS (WARRANTY)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
7.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following shall apply to used goods: Claims for defects are excluded if the defect only occurs after the expiry of one year from delivery of the goods. Defects that occur within one year of delivery of the goods can be claimed within the statutory limitation period. However, the reduction of the liability period to one year does not apply
– for items that have been used for a building in accordance with their customary use and have caused its defectiveness,
– for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses of the customer, as well as
– in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect.
7.3 The customer is requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the deliverer and to inform the seller of this. If the customer fails to do so, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) REDEMPTION OF CAMPAIGN VOUCHERS
8.1 Vouchers issued free of charge by the Seller as part of promotions with a specific period of validity and which cannot be purchased by the Customer (hereinafter “Promotion Vouchers”) can only be redeemed in the Seller’s online shop and only during the specified period.
8.2 Individual products may be excluded from the voucher promotion if a corresponding restriction results from the content of the promotion voucher.
8.3 Promotion vouchers can only be redeemed before the order process is completed. Subsequent offsetting is not possible.

8.7 The credit balance of a promotional voucher is neither paid out in cash nor does it earn interest.
8.8 The promotional voucher will not be refunded if the customer returns the goods paid for in full or in part with the promotional voucher within the scope of his statutory right of withdrawal.
8.9 The promotional voucher is transferable. The Seller may make payment with discharging effect to the respective holder redeeming the promotional voucher in the Seller’s online shop. This shall not apply if the Seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the ineligibility, legal incapacity or lack of representative authority of the respective holder.
9) APPLICABLE LAW
All legal relations between the parties shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws on the international sale of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
10) ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION
10.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
The Seller accepts no liability whatsoever for the content of the aforementioned link.
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts involving a consumer.
