1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Magdalena Stelmaszyk Umsatzsteuer-Id: DE322466496, Goethestraße 18, 63322 Rödermark Deutschland, acting under "Thomas Möbel" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with Closes the seller with regard to the goods presented by the seller in his online shop. We hereby object to the inclusion of the customer's own terms, 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 their commercial nor their independent professional activity. Entrepreneur in the sense of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership that acts in the course of a legal transaction in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop of the seller are not 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 via 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 in relation to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by phone, email, post or online contact form.
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 receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the access of the goods to the customer is decisive, or
- by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives are available, the contract is concluded when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer and ends at the end of the fifth day after the offer has been sent. If the seller does not accept the customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this is considered to be a rejection of the offer, with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.4 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller after the contract is concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller will not make the contract text accessible beyond this. 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 called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account, specifying the corresponding login data.
2.5 Before the binding submission of 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 detection of input errors can be the browser's zoom 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.
2.6 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 Order processing and contacting usually take place via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the email address provided by him for order processing is correct so that emails sent by the seller can be received at this address.
