The shipping costs can be called up on our website using the "Shipping information" button and are shown separately in the course of the order process.
3.3 We offer different payment methods such as prepayment, PayPal Plus (different payment methods as PayPal services) and Sofort Überweisung by Klarna. The available payment methods are shown on our website under the button "Payment methods". We reserve the right not to offer all payment methods at any time; we also reserve the right to restrict payment methods depending on a credit check that has been carried out.

4.3 We are not liable for an impossibility of delivery or for delays in delivery, insofar as these are caused by force majeure or other events that were not foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded (e.g. operational disruptions, difficulties in material or energy procurement, transport delays and official measures) that we do not have to represent. In the case of temporary obstacles, the delivery times are extended or the delivery dates are postponed by the period of the hindrance plus a reasonable start-up period.
4.4 If events within the meaning of the aforementioned paragraph make delivery significantly more difficult or impossible for us and the hindrance is not only of temporary duration, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract.
4.5 If the customer is an entrepreneur, the risk is transferred to the customer with the handover of the delivery item (whereby the beginning of the loading process is decisive) to the forwarding agent, carrier or other third party appointed to carry out the shipment.
4.6 If the customer is a consumer, a lack of delivery by our supplier, for which we are not responsible, means that we do not have to deliver ourselves if we have already ordered the goods before the conclusion of the contract. If the customer is not a consumer, the following applies: A lack of delivery by our supplier, for which we are not responsible, means that we do not have to deliver ourselves. The customer will be informed immediately. In these cases we are entitled to withdraw from the contract. Any payments already made will be reimbursed immediately.
Retention of title
5.1 We reserve ownership until the purchase price for the goods has been paid in full.
5.2 In the case of entrepreneurs, ownership is only transferred to the customer when he has paid off all his liabilities (including any ancillary claims) from our deliveries.
5.3 The following provisions also apply to entrepreneurs:
a.) The customer is entitled to resell the reserved goods and other use of the reserved goods (e.g. connection, processing, installation in a building) in regular business transactions if his customer has not excluded the assignment of the claim from the resale.
b.) All claims against third parties arising from the resale and other use of the reserved goods (e.g. connection, processing, installation in a building) are incurred by the customer in advance in the amount of the respective invoice value (including VAT) to us. If the delivered goods are mixed or combined with other items, the customer assigns us (joint) ownership of the resulting item, in the ratio of the invoice value of the reserved goods to the invoice value of the other goods used.
c.) The customer remains authorized to collect the claims even after the assignment. In the event of default in payment, suspension of payments, application for or opening of insolvency proceedings or other financial collapse of the customer, we can revoke the authorization to collect. Upon request, the customer must notify us of the assigned claims and their debtors, provide all information required for collection, hand over the associated documents and notify the debtors of the assignment. We are entitled to notify the customer's debtors of the assignment and to ask them to pay us.
Warranties and guarantees
6.1 The statutory warranty rights apply, unless otherwise agreed below.
6.2 The warranty period for any defects is one year from delivery of the goods, provided the customer is an entrepreneur.
6.3 The above shortening of the deadline does not apply to culpably caused damage attributable to us from injury to life, limb or health and damage caused intentionally or grossly negligently, in the case of fraudulent concealment of a defect, in the case of items that are used for a building in accordance with their normal use and have caused its defectiveness or in the case of legal recourse claims that exist in connection with claims for defects against us.
6.4 Furthermore, claims for defects according to other mandatory statutory provisions remain unaffected.
6.5 Guarantees are only considered accepted if we have expressly declared the guarantee as such in writing. We have not initiated any guarantees that our suppliers give in guarantee statements, relevant advertising or other product documents. They only bind the supplier who declares this acceptance of the guarantee.
7.1 We are unlimitedly liable for damage caused by us, our legal representatives, executives or our vicarious agents intentionally or through gross negligence. The same applies in the event of culpable injury to life, limb and health or in accordance with the Product Liability Act or other mandatory statutory provisions.
7.2 If damage is caused by slight negligence, we are only liable for the breach of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations), whereby our liability is limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, unless another case according to Section 7.1 or other mandatory provisions is present at the same time. Essential contractual obligations are obligations due to which the contract has just been concluded and on the compliance of which the respective contractual partner could just trust.
7.3 In addition, claims for damages are excluded.
Right of withdrawal
Consumers have the statutory right of cancellation as described in the cancellation policy. Entrepreneurs are not granted a voluntary right of withdrawal.
We are neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
10.1 We are entitled to commission third parties to provide the required services ("subcontractors").
10.2 If the customer is a merchant or a legal entity under public law, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship between us and the customer is our place of business.
10.3 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies. For consumers, this choice of law only applies 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. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) does not apply.
