1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter"GTC") of the Bienen-Apotheke Laimer Platz Michael Grintz eK (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 goods displayed by the seller 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 the contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent 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 for 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 email), whereby the customer's receipt of the order confirmation is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer 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 is 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 contract text will be saved by the seller after the contract has been concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after his order has been sent. 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 binding 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 browser's enlargement function, which is used to enlarge the display on the screen. 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 German and English are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contact are usually made 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 third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
2.9 With the order you give the following consent:
"I consent to my email address and phone number being sent to you
Deutsche Post, Charles-de-Gaulle-Straße 20, 53113 Bonn and/or
DHL Paket GmbH, Sträßchensweg 10, 53113 Bonn and/or
Österreichische Post Aktiengesellschaft, Rochusplatz 1, 1030 Vienna, Austria and/or
United Parcel Service Deutschland Inc. & Co. OHG, Görlitzer Strasse 1, 41460 Neuss
is passed on so that the parcel service provider can contact me by email or telephone or send status information on the delivery of the shipment before the goods are delivered. I can revoke my consent given in this regard at any time."
3) right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers generally have a right of withdrawal.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of cancellation 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 any member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices given are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs that may arise are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the customer. These include, for example, the costs of transferring money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs can also arise 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. For the purchase of items that are subject to compulsory pharmacy in the country of destination, we can unfortunately not offer all payment methods and may not be able to fulfill the order. We reserve the right to cancel such orders after a review on our part.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
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 If the delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller. This does not apply with regard to the shipping costs if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer exercises his right of withdrawal, the provisions made in the seller’s cancellation policy apply.
5.3 Collection by the customer is not possible for logistical reasons.
5.4 We do not ship items that are subject to mandatory pharmacy in the destination country. We reserve the right to cancel corresponding orders after verification.
6) Retention of title
If the seller makes an advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods 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 statutory liability for defects apply.
7.2 If the customer acts as a consumer, he is asked to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller thereof. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Redemption of campaign vouchers
8.1 Vouchers that are issued free of charge by the seller as part of promotions with a certain period of validity and that cannot be purchased by the customer (hereinafter"promotional vouchers") can only be redeemed in the seller's online shop and only within the specified period.
8.2 Individual products can be excluded from the voucher campaign, provided that a corresponding restriction results from the content of the campaign voucher.
8.3 Promotion vouchers can only be redeemed before the order process has been completed. Subsequent billing is not possible.
8.4 Only one campaign voucher can be redeemed per order.
8.5 The value of the goods must be at least equal to the amount of the campaign voucher. Any remaining credit will not be refunded by the seller.
8.6 If the value of the campaign voucher is insufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller can be selected to settle the difference.
8.7 The balance of a campaign voucher is neither paid out in cash nor is interest paid.
8.8 The campaign voucher will not be refunded if the customer returns the goods paid for in full or in part with the campaign voucher within the scope of his statutory right of withdrawal.
8.9 The campaign voucher is only intended for use by the person named on it. A transfer of the campaign voucher to third parties is excluded. The seller is entitled, but not obliged, to check the material entitlement of the respective voucher holder.
9) Applicable Law
9.1 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law only applies insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
9.2 Furthermore, with regard to the statutory right of withdrawal, this choice of law does not apply to consumers who do not belong to any member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
10) place of jurisdiction
If the customer acts as a merchant, legal entity under public law or special fund under public law with its seat in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is the seller's place of business. If the customer is based outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller's place of business is the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract, if the contract or claims from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. In the above cases, however, the seller is always entitled to call the court at the customer's registered office.
11) Alternative dispute resolution
11.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution under the following link:https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online sales or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
11.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
