General Terms and Conditions
The following General Terms and Conditions (“T&C”) shall apply for all orders placed by consumers and entrepreneurs via our Online Shop.
A consumer is any natural person which concludes a legal transaction for a purpose that cannot be ascribed to a commercial or independent business activity. An entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or legally capable partnership who, for the sake of legal transactions, acts in execution of their commercial or independent business activity.
In case of entrepreneurs, these T&C also apply to future business relations, without the obligation to refer to them again for this purpose. If the entrepreneur uses contradicting or supplementary T&C, their validity is herewith explicitly rejected; they only become part of the contract if we expressly agree.

6. Retention of Title
Unless fully paid, the goods shall remain our property. For entrepreneurs, the following applies additionally: We retain title to the goods until full settlement of all obligations resulting from our ongoing business relationship. You are entitled to resell the goods delivered under retention of title in the ordinary course of business; you assign all claims resulting from this resale in the amount of the invoice to us in advance – independently of a union or mixture of the goods under retention of title with new goods – and we accept this assignment. You shall remain entitled to collect the claims, however, we may also collect the claims ourselves if you do not meet your payment obligations.
6. Transport Damage
The following applies to consumers: If goods are delivered with apparent transport damage, please place a claim for these defects with the delivery agent immediately, if possible, and contact us without delay. The failure to file a complaint or contact us has no consequences for your statutory claims and their enforcement, in particular your warranty rights. However, they help us validate our own claims against the carrier or claim transport insurance.
The following applies for entrepreneurs: The risk of accidental loss or accidental deterioration shall pass to you as soon as we have handed over the goods to the forwarder, the carrier, or other persons or institutions specified for shipping the goods. Among businessmen, the commercial inspection and defect notification requirement as laid down in Article 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) shall apply. If you fail to make the notification stipulated there, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved, unless the defect was not identifiable during the inspection. This does not apply if we have fraudulently concealed a defect.
8. Warranties and Guarantees
The statutory liability for defects law shall apply. Information about additionally applicable guarantees and their precise conditions can be found next to the product or on distinct information pages in the Online Shop, if applicable.
9. Dispute Resolution
The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (ODR) which can be accessed at https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. Consumers have the opportunity to use this platform for resolving their disputes.
We shall be obliged to participate in the dispute resolution proceedings before the Consumer Arbitration Board for resolving disputes resulting from a contractual relationship with a consumer or to determine whether such contractual relationship exists. The responsible authority is the Federal Universal Arbitration Board at the Centre for Arbitration (Universalschlichtungsstelle des Bundes am Zentrum für Schlichtung e.V.), Straßburger Straße 8, D-77694 Kehl am Rhein, Germany: www.universalschlichtungsstelle.de. We will take part in dispute resolution proceedings before this institution.
10. Final Provisions
German law applies excluding the UN sales law. For a businessman within the meaning of the Commercial Code, a legal entity under public law or special assets under public law, our place of business shall be the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes resulting from the contractual relationships between you and us.
