1) Scope of application
1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Bruncken & Gebhardt GmbH (hereinafter "seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with the seller with regard to the seller's in completes the goods displayed in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these terms and conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor their independent professional activity. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, is exercising their commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop of the seller do not constitute 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 using 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 in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes 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), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- By delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in so far as the access of the goods to the customer is relevant, or
- by after delivery of his order, he instructs the customer to pay.
Where several of the above alternatives are present, the contract shall come into force at the time when one of the above alternatives occurs first. The deadline for the acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the submission of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the submission of the offer. If the seller does not accept the offer of the customer within the aforementioned deadline, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound to his consent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller after the contract is concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the customer has sent his order. Any further provision of the contract text by the seller does not take place. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before submitting 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 providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before submitting a binding 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 representation 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 the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contact are usually carried out by email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for processing the order 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 with the order processing can be delivered.

Such costs may be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds even 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.

4.4 If prepayment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after the conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed a later due date.

5) Terms of delivery and delivery
5.1 The delivery of goods takes place on the dispatch route to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address given in the seller's order processing is decisive.
5.2 Goods that are delivered by a forwarding agent are delivered "free curbside", i.e. up to the public curbside closest to the delivery address, unless otherwise stated in the shipping information in the seller's online shop and unless otherwise agreed.
5.3 If the transport company sends the 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 a reasonable time in advance would have. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer exercises his right of cancellation effectively, the provisions made in the seller's cancellation policy apply.

If the seller delivers in advance, he retains title to the delivered goods until full payment of the owed purchase price.
7) Liability for defects (guarantee)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of statutory liability for defects apply.
7.2 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 on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Redemption of promotional vouchers

This does not apply if the seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the non-authorization, legal incapacity or lack of authorization of the respective owner.
9) Applicable law
For all legal relations of the parties, the law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to the exclusion of the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice is valid only in so far as the protection afforded by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
