1) Scope of Application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “Terms and Conditions”) of Sanfilippo Cosmetics UG (haftungsbeschränkt) (hereinafter “Seller”) apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods, which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter “Customer”) concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online store. The inclusion of the Customer’s own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. 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 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 that concludes the ordering process.
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 shall be decisive, or
by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed the order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract shall be concluded at the point in time at which 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 at the end 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 to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.
2.5 If the payment method “Amazon Payments” is selected, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe s.c.a., 5 Rue Plaetis, L-2338 Luxembourg (hereinafter: “Amazon”), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe User Agreement, which can be viewed at https://payments.amazon.de/help/201751590. If the Customer selects “Amazon Payments” as the payment method during the online ordering process, the Customer shall also issue a payment order to Amazon at the same time by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares the acceptance of the customer’s offer at the time when the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 When submitting an offer via the Seller’s online order form, the text of the contract will 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. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the Seller’s website and can be accessed free of charge by the Customer via his password-protected customer account by providing the relevant login data, provided that the Customer has created a customer account in the Seller’s online store before submitting his order.
2.7 Before bindingly submitting 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 enlargement 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 that concludes the ordering process.
2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 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 the 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 revocation.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the Seller’s cancellation policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller’s product description, the prices quoted are total prices. Value-added tax is not shown, as the Seller is a small entrepreneur within the meaning of the UStG. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional 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 by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds 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.
4.3 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the Customer in the Seller’s online store.
4.4 If payment in advance by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after the conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.6 If the payment method “SOFORT Überweisung” is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (hereinafter “SOFORT”). In order to be able to pay the invoice amount via SOFORT Überweisung, the customer must have an online banking account with PIN/TAN procedure that has been activated for participation in SOFORT Überweisung, must legitimize himself accordingly during the payment process and must confirm the payment instruction to SOFORT. The payment transaction will be executed immediately afterwards by SOFORT and the customer’s bank account will be debited. More detailed information about the payment method SOFORT Überweisung can be found by the customer on the internet at https://www.sofort.com/ger-DE/kaeufer/su/so-funktioniert-sofort-ueberweisung/.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods is carried out by shipping to the delivery address specified by the customer unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the Seller’s order processing 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 effectively exercises his right of withdrawal, if he is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery, or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service unless the seller had given him reasonable advance notice of the service.
5.3 Self-collection is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) Retention of title
If the Seller makes advance performance, he shall retain title to the goods delivered until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
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 The customer is requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the delivery person and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Applicable law
8.1 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties 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 to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
8.2 Furthermore, this choice of law with regard to the statutory right of withdrawal shall not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
9) Alternative Dispute Resolution
9.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchases or service contracts involving a consumer.
9.2 The Seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
