The products and services listed by the seller in the online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the seller; rather, they are an invitation to the customer to make a binding offer by placing an order.

By sending the order from the "virtual shopping cart" the customer places a binding order for the items contained therein. The seller will immediately confirm receipt of this order to the customer by email.

The purchase contract is concluded with the express acceptance of the order in text form or delivery of the goods by the seller. In this respect, the seller is entitled to accept the customer's contract offer within two working days of receipt of the order.

If PayPal allows the "PayPal invoice" payment method, the customer must pay the invoice amount to PayPal within 14 days of receiving the goods.

In order to pay the invoice amount via "SOFORT", the customer must have an online banking account activated for participation in "SOFORT", identify themselves accordingly during the payment process and confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT".
