General terms and conditions with customer information
conditions with customer information
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “GTC”) of Nilo Design e.U. (hereinafter “Seller”), apply to all contracts concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter “Customer”) with the Seller with regard to the goods and/or services 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 For the purposes of these GTC, a consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.
1.3 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 Seller’s online store do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve for the submission of 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 and/or services in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer makes a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods and/or services contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer may also submit the offer to the seller by e-mail or telephone.
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 acceptance of the offer begins on the day following 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 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 and sent to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order together with these GTC. However, the text of the contract can no longer be retrieved by the customer via the seller’s website after sending his order.
2.6 Before bindingly placing 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 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 which completes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 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 accurate 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.
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 will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 Various payment options are available to the Customer, which are indicated in the Seller’s online store right at the beginning of the ordering process.
4.3 If payment in advance has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract.
4.4 If a payment method offered via the “PayPal” payment service is selected, the payment shall be processed via PayPal, whereby PayPal may also use the services of third party payment service providers for this purpose. If the seller also offers payment methods via PayPal in which he makes advance payment to the customer (e.g. purchase on account or payment by installments), he assigns his payment claim to PayPal or to the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal and specifically named to the customer. Before accepting the seller’s declaration of assignment, PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal performs a credit check using the transmitted customer data. The Seller reserves the right to refuse the selected payment method to the Customer in case of a negative verification result. If the selected payment method is approved, the customer shall pay the invoice amount within the agreed payment period or in the agreed payment intervals. In this case, he can only pay to PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipment, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes, even in the case of assignment of claims.
4.5 If the payment method credit card via Stripe is selected, the invoice amount is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract. The payment is processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: “Stripe”). Stripe reserves the right to perform a credit check and to reject this payment method in case of a negative credit check.
5. Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods shall be made by shipping to the delivery address provided by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the order processing of the seller is decisive. Deviating from this, if the payment method PayPal is selected, the delivery address deposited by the customer with PayPal at the time of payment shall be decisive.
5.2 If the transport company returns the shipped goods to the Seller because delivery to the Customer was not possible, the Customer shall bear 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 the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller had given the customer reasonable advance notice of the service. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the Hinsendung if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. In the event of an effective exercise of the right of withdrawal by the customer, the provision made in the seller’s cancellation policy shall apply to the return costs.
5.3 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. Upon receipt of this e-mail, the customer may pick up the goods at the seller’s registered office after consultation with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
