1) General provisions
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as “GTC”) of ACHIY UG (haftungsbeschränkt) (hereinafter referred to as “Seller”), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods, which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”) concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods displayed by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the Customer’s own terms and conditions is hereby rejected, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 Consumer in the sense of these GTC is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor his self-employed professional activity. Entrepreneur in the sense 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) Contract conclusion
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 submit 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. 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 concluding the ordering process.
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), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by requesting the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer 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 a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the Seller’s online order form, the text of the contract will be saved by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent 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. 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 free of charge by the Customer via his password-protected user account by entering the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before bindingly placing an 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. Within the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German and English language are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 The order processing and contact are usually carried out by 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 detailed information on the right of revocation can be found in the seller’s revocation instruction.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller’s product description, the prices quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs that may be incurred shall be stated 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 through credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate charges) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of money if the delivery is not 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) is/are communicated to the customer in the online shop of the seller.
4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed a later due date.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods shall be made by dispatch to the delivery address indicated by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. The delivery address indicated in the Seller’s order processing is decisive for the transaction.
5.2 If the transport company returns the dispatched goods to the seller because a delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs for the unsuccessful dispatch. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller had given the customer a reasonable period of notice of the service. Furthermore, this shall not apply with regard to the costs of the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of revocation. In the case of effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision made in the seller’s revocation instruction shall apply to the costs of return shipment.
5.3 In the case of self-collection, the seller shall first inform the customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by him are ready for collection. After receipt of 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.
6) Reservation of ownership
If the seller makes advance payment, he reserves the right of ownership of the delivered goods until full payment of the purchase price owed.
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 Deviating from this, the following applies to used goods: Warranty claims are excluded if the defect only occurs after one year from delivery of the goods. Defects that occur within one year of delivery of the goods can be claimed within the statutory period of limitation. However, the reduction of the liability period to one year shall not apply
- for items that have been used for a building in accordance with their normal use and have caused its defectiveness,
- for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses of the customer, and
- in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect.
7.3 The customer is asked to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damages to the deliverer and to inform the seller about it. If the customer does not comply with this, this has no effect on his legal or contractual claims for defects.
8) 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 purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
9) Alternative dispute resolution
9.1 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 out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
9.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
Cancellation policy & cancellation form
