1. Scope
1.1. For the business relationship between Gipfelsockerl – Bestle & Odesser GbR, Maria-Eich-Strasse 14a, 81243 Munich, Germany (“seller”) and the customer (“customer”) apply only the following terms and conditions valid at the time of the order.

1.2. You can reach our customer service for questions, complaints and warranty requests on weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. by calling +49 (0) 177 3802667 or by email at kontakt(at)gipfelsockerl.de

1.3. According to these Terms and Conditions, a consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose which, for the most part, cannot be attributed to either his or her commercial or self-employed professional activity (§ 13 BGB).

1.4. Different terms and conditions of the customer are not accepted unless the seller expressly agrees to their validity.

2. Offers and services
The presentation of the products in the online shop is not a legally binding offer, but an invitation to place an order. Performance descriptions in catalogues as well as on the seller’s websites do not have the character of any assurance or guarantee.
As long as nothing else is noted, all offers are valid “as long as stocks last”. Amendments and errors are nevertheless possible.

3. Order process and contract conclusion
3.1. The customer can select products from the seller’s range without obligation and collect them in a so-called shopping cart via the ” shopping cart” button. Within the basket, the product selection can be changed, for example, or deleted. The customer can then proceed via the “continue to checkout” button to complete the ordering process.

3.2. Via the “order now” button, the customer makes a binding request to buy the goods in the shopping cart. Before submitting the order, the customer can change and view the data at any time and go back to the shopping cart using the browser function or cancel the order process altogether. Necessary information is marked with an asterisk (*).

3.3. The seller then sends the customer an automatic order confirmation by email, in which the customer’s order is listed again and which the customer can print via the “print” function (order confirmation). The automatic order confirmation only documents that the customer’s order has been received by the seller and does not constitute acceptance of the request. The purchase agreement does not materialize until the seller sends or hands over the ordered product within 2 days, or informs the customer within 2 days with a second email of the order confirmation or the shipment of the order.

3.4. Seller and customer enter into a contract at the time of provision of bank details and a request for payment, should the seller make advance payment possible. If, despite the due date, the payment has not been received by the seller up to a time of 10 calendar days after the order confirmation has been sent, the seller withdraws from the contract with the consequence that the order is invalid. The seller then has no obligation of delivery. In this case there are no further consequences. Therefore, a reservation of the product with advance payment is possible for a maximum of 10 calendar days.

4. Pricing and shipping costs
4.1. All prices stated on the seller’s website are inclusive of applicable statutory sales tax.

4.2. In addition to the stated prices, the seller charges shipping costs for the delivery. Shipping costs are clearly communicated to the buyer on a separate information page and as part of the ordering process.

It is the same if you are accepting the products late. Should the delivery of the goods fail due to the fault of the buyer, despite a three delivery attempts, the seller may withdraw from the contract.

5.3. If the product ordered is not available because the seller is, without fault of his own, missing a delivery from his supplier, the seller may withdraw from the contract. In this case, the seller will inform the customer immediately and, if necessary, propose the delivery of a comparable product to him. If no comparable product is available or the customer does not want a delivery of a comparable product, the seller may refund any amount already provided to the customer immediately.

5.4. Customers are informed of delivery times and delivery restrictions (e.g. restriction of deliveries on certain countries) on a separate information page or within the respective product description.

6.4. If the due date of payment is determined according to the calendar, the customer is in default by missing the date. In this case, the customer has to pay the statutory default interest.

6.5. The customer’s obligation to pay interest on delayed payments does not preclude the sale of further damages by the seller.

6.6. The customer is entitled to offset late payments only if his counterclaims are legally established or recognised by the seller. The customer can only exercise a right of refund if the claims result from the same contractual relationship.

9.2. The seller is liable without limitation to the extent that the cause of the damage is based on wilful intent or gross negligence.

9.3. Further, the seller is liable for the slight negligent breach of essential obligations, the violation of which endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract, or for the violation of obligations, the fulfillment of which is the proper implementation of the contract in general, which the customer trusts to be complied by.
