1) Scope of application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Sebastian Lochbronner, trading under "vallery vydentity" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online shop. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise agreed.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.
1.4 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 online shop of the seller 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 via the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. 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 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 e-mail), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer is 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 time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for the acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the sending of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry 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 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before sending 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 bindingly placing 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 which completes the ordering process.
2.7 Different languages are available for the conclusion of the contract. The specific language selection is displayed in the online shop.
2.8 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 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 withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.
3.3 The right of cancellation does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole place of 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 quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, further 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 online shop of the seller.
4.4 If prepayment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.5 If a payment method offered via the "PayPal" payment service is selected, the payment shall be processed via PayPal, whereby PayPal may also use the services of third party payment service providers for this purpose. If the seller also offers payment methods via PayPal for which he makes advance payments to the customer (e.g. purchase on account or payment by instalments), he assigns his payment claim in this respect to PayPal or to the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal and specifically named to the customer. Before accepting the seller's declaration of assignment, PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal shall carry out a credit check using the transmitted customer data. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the selected payment method in the event of a negative check result. If the selected payment method is authorised, the customer must pay the invoice amount within the agreed payment period or at the agreed payment intervals. In this case, the customer can only pay PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, even in the case of assignment of claims, the seller remains responsible for general customer enquiries, e.g. regarding goods, delivery time, dispatch, returns, complaints, declarations of cancellation and returns or credit notes.
4.6 If the payment method "SOFORT" 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", the customer must have an online banking account that has been activated for participation in "SOFORT", identify himself accordingly during the payment process and confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT". The payment transaction is then immediately carried out by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account is debited. More information on the "SOFORT" payment method is available to the customer on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com
4.7 If a payment method offered via the payment service "Shopify Payments" is selected, the payment is processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter "Stripe"). The individual payment methods offered via Shopify Payments are communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop. Stripe may use other payment services to process payments, for which special payment terms may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately. Further information on "Shopify Payments" can be found on the Internet at https://www.shopify.com
4.8 If a payment method offered via the payment service "mollie" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Mollie B.V., Keizersgracht 313, 1016 EE Amsterdam, the Netherlands (hereinafter: "mollie"). The individual payment methods offered via mollie will be communicated to the Customer in the Seller's online shop. For the processing of payments, mollie may use other payment services, for which special payment conditions may apply, to which the Customer may be informed separately. Further information on "mollie" is available on the Internet at https://www.mollie.com
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 If the Seller offers to ship the goods, delivery shall be made within the delivery area specified by the Seller 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 delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller as a result. This does not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of revocation. In the event of an effective exercise of the right of revocation by the Customer, the provision made in the Seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the costs of returning the goods.
5.3 If the customer is acting as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall pass to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment. If the customer is acting as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall in principle only pass to the customer or a person authorised to receive the goods when the goods are handed over to the customer. In deviation from this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall also pass to the customer in the case of consumers as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment if the customer commissions the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.
5.4 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper self-delivery. This shall only apply in the event that the Seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and the Seller has concluded a specific covering transaction with the supplier with due diligence. The Seller shall make all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the event of non-availability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded without delay.
5.5 Self collection is not possible for logistical reasons.
5.6 Vouchers are provided to the customer as follows:

6) Retention of title
If the seller makes advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
Unless otherwise stipulated in the following provisions, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply. In deviation from this, the following applies to contracts for the delivery of goods:
7.1 If the client is acting as an entrepreneur,
- the seller has the choice of the type of supplementary performance;
- in the case of new goods, the limitation period for defects shall be one year from delivery of the goods;
- the rights and claims due to defects are excluded in the case of used goods;
- the limitation period shall not recommence if a replacement delivery is made within the scope of liability for defects.
7.2 If the customer acts as a consumer, the following applies to contracts for the delivery of used goods with the restriction of the following clause: The limitation period for claims for defects is one year from delivery of the goods if this has been expressly and separately contractually agreed between the parties and the customer was specifically informed of the shortening of the limitation period before submitting his contractual declaration.
7.3 The above-mentioned limitations of liability and shortening of deadlines do not apply to
- for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer,
- in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect,
- for goods which have been used for a building in accordance with their customary use and have caused its defectiveness,
- for any existing obligation of the seller to provide updates for digital products, in the case of contracts for the supply of goods with digital elements.
7.4 Furthermore, for entrepreneurs, the statutory limitation periods for any statutory right of recourse shall remain unaffected.
7.5 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of § 1 of the German Commercial Code (HGB), he shall be subject to the commercial duty of inspection and notification of defects pursuant to § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations regulated therein, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved.
7.6 If the customer is acting as a consumer, he is requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the deliverer and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this has no effect on his legal or contractual claims for defects.
8) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to specific customer specifications
8.1 If, according to the content of the contract, the seller is also responsible for processing the goods according to the customer's specifications in addition to delivering the goods, the customer must provide the seller with all content required for processing, such as texts, images or graphics in the file formats, formatting, image and file sizes specified by the seller and grant the seller the necessary rights of use. The customer is solely responsible for the procurement and acquisition of rights to this content. The customer declares and accepts responsibility for ensuring that he has the right to use the content provided to the seller.

The customer shall also assume the necessary costs of legal defence, including all court and legal fees in the statutory amount. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the infringement. In the event of a claim by a third party, the customer is obliged to provide the seller immediately, truthfully and completely with all information necessary for the examination of the claims and a defence.
8.3 The seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the customer violates legal or official prohibitions or offends common decency.

In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
11.2 Furthermore, this choice of law with regard to the statutory right of cancellation does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
