1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Werner Brogle GmbH (hereinafter "Seller") shall apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online store. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise expressly stipulated.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. 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 independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online store of the seller 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 may submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller's online store. In doing so, after placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by telephone, fax, e-mail, mail or online contact form.
2.3 The seller may 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 shall be decisive, or
by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
by requesting payment from the customer after the customer's order has been placed.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract shall be concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for the acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the sending of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry 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 shall be deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.
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 has sent his order. The seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this.
2.6 Before bindingly placing the order via the Seller's online order form, the Customer can recognize 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 magnification 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 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 The 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.
3) Right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 More information on the right of withdrawal 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 quoted are total prices that include the statutory value-added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, further costs may be incurred in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds if the delivery is not made to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.
4.3 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online store.
4.4 If prepayment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.5 If the payment method "SOFORT" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (hereinafter "SOFORT"). In order to be able to pay the invoice amount via "SOFORT", the customer must have an online banking account that has been activated for participation in "SOFORT", must identify himself accordingly during the payment process and must confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT". The payment transaction will be executed immediately afterwards by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account will be debited. More detailed information on the "SOFORT" payment method can be found by the customer on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.
4.6 If a payment method offered via the payment service "Klarna" is selected, the payment will be processed via Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden (hereinafter "Klarna"). More information and the terms and conditions of Klarna in this regard can be found in the payment information of the seller, which can be viewed at the following Internet address:
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods is made by shipping to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed.
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. This shall not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises its right of revocation. In the event that the customer effectively exercises its right of revocation, the provision made in the seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the costs of returning the goods.
5.3 If the customer is acting as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall pass to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment. If the customer is acting as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall in principle pass to the customer only upon delivery of the goods to the customer or a person authorized to receive the goods. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall pass to the customer, even in the case of consumers, as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment, if the customer has commissioned the forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named such person or institution to the customer.
5.4 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in case of incorrect or improper self-delivery. This shall only apply in the event that the Seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and the Seller has concluded a specific covering transaction with the supplier with due diligence. The Seller shall make all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the event of non-availability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded without delay.
5.5 In case of self-collection, the Seller shall first inform the Customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by the Customer are ready for collection. After receiving this e-mail, the customer can pick up the goods at the seller's registered office by arrangement with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
5.6 Vouchers are given to the customer as follows:
6) Retention of title
6.1 With respect to consumers, the seller retains ownership of the delivered goods until full payment of the purchase price owed.
6.2 With respect to entrepreneurs, the seller retains title to the delivered goods until all claims arising from an ongoing business relationship have been settled in full.
6.3 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, he shall be entitled to resell the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business. The customer shall assign to the seller in advance all claims against third parties arising therefrom in the amount of the respective invoice value (including value added tax). This assignment shall apply regardless of whether the reserved goods have been resold without or after processing. The customer shall remain authorized to collect the claims even after the assignment. The authority of the seller to collect the claims himself remains unaffected. However, the Seller shall not collect the receivables as long as the Customer meets its payment obligations to the Seller, is not in default of payment and no application for the opening of insolvency proceedings has been filed.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply. The following shall apply in deviation herefrom:
7.1 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur,
the seller has the choice of the type of subsequent performance;
the limitation period for defects in new goods is one year from delivery of the goods;
the rights and claims due to defects are generally excluded for used goods;
the limitation period shall not begin again if a replacement delivery is made within the scope of liability for defects.
7.2 If the customer acts as a consumer, the following applies to used goods with the restriction of the following clause: 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 from delivery of the goods can be claimed within the statutory limitation period.
7.3 The limitations of liability and shortening of time limits stipulated in the above clauses shall not apply to
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.
7.4 Furthermore, for entrepreneurs, the statutory limitation periods for the right of recourse pursuant to § 445b BGB shall remain unaffected.
7.5 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of § 1 of the German Commercial Code (HGB), he shall be subject to the commercial duty of inspection and notification of defects pursuant to § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations regulated therein, the goods shall be deemed approved.
7.6 If the customer acts as a consumer, he is requested to claim delivered goods with obvious transport damage from the deliverer and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this has no effect on his legal or contractual claims for defects.
The Seller shall be liable to the Customer for all contractual, quasi-contractual and statutory claims, including claims in tort, for damages and reimbursement of expenses as follows:
8.1 The seller is liable for any legal reason without limitation
in the event of intent or gross negligence,
in the event of intentional or negligent injury to life, limb or health,
on the basis of a warranty promise, unless otherwise regulated in this respect,
on the basis of mandatory liability, such as under the Product Liability Act.
8.2 If the Seller negligently breaches an essential contractual obligation, liability shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, unless liability is unlimited in accordance with the above clause. Material contractual obligations are obligations which the contract imposes on the seller according to its content in order to achieve the purpose of the contract, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on the observance of which the customer may regularly rely.
8.3 Otherwise, any liability of the seller is excluded.
8.4 The above liability provisions shall also apply with regard to the Seller's liability for its vicarious agents and legal representatives.
9) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to certain specifications of the customer.
9.1 If, according to the content of the contract, in addition to the delivery of the goods, the Seller is also obligated to process the goods according to certain specifications of the Customer, the Customer shall provide the Seller with all content required for the processing, such as texts, images or graphics in the file formats, formatting, image and file sizes specified by the Seller and shall grant the Seller the rights of use required for this purpose. The customer shall be solely responsible for the procurement and acquisition of rights to such content. The customer declares and assumes responsibility that he has the right to use the content provided to the seller. In particular, he shall ensure that no rights of third parties are violated thereby, in particular copyrights, trademark rights and personal rights.
9.2 The customer shall indemnify the seller against claims of third parties which these may assert against the seller in connection with an infringement of their rights by the contractual use of the customer's content by the seller. In this regard, the customer shall also assume the reasonable costs of the necessary legal defense, including all court and attorney fees in the statutory amount. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the infringement. In the event of a claim by a third party, the customer is obligated to provide the seller immediately, truthfully and completely with all information necessary for the examination of the claims and a defense.
9.3 The Seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the Customer for this purpose violates legal or official prohibitions or offends common decency. This applies in particular to the provision of anti-constitutional, racist, xenophobic, discriminatory, insulting, youth-endangering and/or violence-glorifying content.
10) Redemption of promotional vouchers

10.9 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 store. This does 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.

11.1 Vouchers that can be purchased via the Seller's online store (hereinafter "Gift Vouchers") can only be redeemed in the Seller's online store, unless otherwise stated in the Voucher.

12) Applicable law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties to the exclusion of the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
If the customer acts as a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law with its registered office in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract shall be the place of business of the seller. If the customer is domiciled outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller's place of business shall be the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract if the contract or claims arising from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. However, in the aforementioned cases, the Seller shall in any case be entitled to invoke the court at the Customer's place of business.

The seller has submitted to the Trusted Shops quality criteria, which can be viewed on the Internet at http://www.trustedshops.com/tsdocument/TS_QUALITY_CRITERIA_de.pdf.
