General terms and conditions with customer information
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of
Maxampere UG (limited liability)
Phone: +49 5131 5021064
Fax.: +49 5131 5020382
apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") concludes with the seller with regard to the goods presented by the seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless something else has been agreed.
1.2 These General Terms and Conditions shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless expressly agreed otherwise.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.
1.4 The subject of the contract can – depending on the seller’s product description – be both the purchase of goods by way of a one-off delivery and the purchase of goods by way of a permanent delivery (hereinafter “subscription contract”). With the subscription contract, the seller undertakes to deliver the contractually owed goods to the customer for the duration of the agreed contract period in the contractually owed time intervals.
2) Conclusion of 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 enable the customer to submit a binding offer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via 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 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 or post.
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 e-mail), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is 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 asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the above alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the above alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer has sent the offer 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 is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) together with these General Terms and Conditions after the order has been sent. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the seller's website and can be called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected customer account by entering the relevant login data, provided that the customer has created a customer account in the seller's online shop before sending his order.
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 display 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 on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 Order processing and contact are usually made via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing 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 by third parties commissioned to process the order can be delivered.
3) Right of Withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further 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 quoted are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise 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 money transfers by banks (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs can also be incurred in relation to the transfer of money 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 shop.
4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.6 If the payment method SEPA direct debit is selected as far as possible, the invoice amount is due for payment after a SEPA direct debit mandate has been issued, but not before the deadline for the advance information has expired. The direct debit is collected when the ordered goods leave the seller's warehouse, but not before the deadline for advance information has expired. Pre-information (“pre-notification”) is any message (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) from the seller to the customer that announces a debit using SEPA direct debit. If the direct debit is not redeemed due to insufficient funds in the account or because incorrect bank details have been provided, or if the customer objects to the debit although he is not entitled to do so, the customer must bear the fees incurred by the respective bank if he is responsible for this . The seller reserves the right to carry out a credit check when selecting the SEPA direct debit payment method and to reject this payment method if the credit check is negative.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 Goods are delivered 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 transport company sends the shipped goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller announced the service to him a reasonable time in advance would have. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the delivery if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. If the customer effectively exercises the right of cancellation, the regulation made in the seller's cancellation policy applies to the return costs.
5.3 In the case of collection, the seller first informs the customer by e-mail that the goods he has ordered are ready for collection. After receiving this e-mail, the customer can collect the goods at the seller's registered office after consultation with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
5.4 Vouchers are given to the customer as follows:
via download by post
6) Duration and termination of subscription contracts
6.1 Subscription contracts are concluded for an indefinite period, but at least for the minimum term shown in the respective product description in the seller's online shop. The subscription contract can be terminated at any time during the minimum term at the end of the minimum term and after the end of the minimum term at any time with a notice period of 14 days.
6.2 The right to extraordinary termination for important reasons remains unaffected. An important reason exists if the terminating party, taking into account all the circumstances of the individual case and weighing the interests of both parties, cannot be expected to continue the contractual relationship until the agreed termination or until the expiry of a period of notice.
6.3 Cancellations must be made in writing or in text form (e.g. by email).
7) Retention of title
If the seller pays in advance, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
8) Liability for Defects (Warranty)
8.1 If the purchased item is defective, the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
8.2 The customer is asked to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect whatsoever on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
9) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to specific customer specifications
9.1 If, according to the content of the contract, the seller owes not only the delivery of goods but also the processing of the goods according to specific specifications of the customer, the customer must provide the operator with all content required for processing such as texts, images or graphics in the file formats, formatting, image specified by the operator - and file sizes and to grant him the necessary rights of use. The customer is solely responsible for the procurement and acquisition of rights to this content. The customer declares and assumes responsibility for having the right to use the content provided to the seller. In particular, he ensures that no rights of third parties are violated, in particular copyrights, trademarks and personal rights.
9.2 The customer shall indemnify the seller against claims by third parties which the latter may assert against the latter in connection with a violation of their rights through the contractual use of the customer's content by the seller. The customer also assumes the reasonable costs of the necessary legal defense, including all court and attorney's 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 obliged to provide the seller with all information that is necessary for the examination of the claims and a defense without delay, truthfully and completely.
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) Redeeming Gift Certificates
10.1 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 the voucher states otherwise.
10.2 Gift vouchers and remaining balances on gift vouchers can be redeemed up to the end of the third year following the year in which the voucher was purchased. Remaining credit will be credited to the customer by the expiry date.
10.3 Gift vouchers can only be redeemed before completing the ordering process. Subsequent offsetting is not possible.
10.4 Only one gift voucher can be redeemed per order.
10.5 Gift Vouchers can only be used to purchase Goods and cannot be used to purchase further Gift Vouchers.
10.6 If the value of the gift voucher is not sufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller can be chosen to settle the difference.
10.7 The balance of a gift voucher is neither paid out in cash nor does it bear interest.
10.8 The Gift Voucher is transferrable. The seller can pay with discharging effect 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, the legal incapacity or the lack of the right to represent the respective owner.
11) Governing 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. For consumers, this choice of law only applies 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.
12) Alternative Dispute Resolution
12.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet under the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
12.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
