Terms and Conditions – Soulbuddy OHG
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as the “GTC”) of Soulbuddy OHG (hereinafter referred to as “Seller”) apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter “Customer”) concludes with the Seller with respect to the goods presented by the Seller in his online shop. This shall not allow the customer’s own terms and conditions to be included, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 For the purposes of these GTC, a consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which cannot be attributed primarily to his commercial or independent professional activity. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal effect which, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of the contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller’s online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to make 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 shop. After the customer has placed the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and went through the electronic ordering process, by clicking the “BUY NOW” button, the customer makes a legally binding contract offer with respect to the goods contained in the shopping cart.
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 (e-mail), insofar as the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive
by supplying the ordered goods to the customer, in so far as the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive
by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If several of the above alternatives are available, the contract shall be concluded at the time when one of the above alternatives first occurs. The period for acceptance of the offer begins to run on the day after the customer has sent the offer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer’s offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the result 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 stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and will be sent to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail or letter) after sending his order. The seller will not make the text of the contract available in addition. 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, stating the corresponding login data.
2.6 Prior to the binding submission of the order via the seller’s online order form, the customer can detect possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better detection of input errors can be the magnification function of the browser, which is used to increase the appearance on the screen. As part of the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries via the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the “final ordering process” button.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contact ingestion usually take place 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 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 the seller responsible for the order processing can be delivered.
