§ 2 Conclusion of contract in the Online Shop

1. The Client can choose products from the range presented on the Website and collect these in a so-called virtual shopping bag by using the button "Add to Cart." The Client can leave the virtual shopping bag at any time to view and add additional products on the Website and subsequently retrieve it again. Using the button "Proceed to Checkout" in the shopping bag, the Client can access a page that allows the submission of data necessary for the execution of the order (e.g. address and mode of payment, as well as payment information) and subsequently view his/her entire order (order summary page). Via the button "Place Order" located there, the Client makes a binding offer for the purchase of the products located in the virtual shopping bag. Before submitting the order, the Client can view and change all data on the order summary page at any time, and correct any typing errors. The purchase offer can only be submitted if the Client accepts these GTCs and acknowledges the right of revocation by "checking" the options "I have read the Business Terms and agree with them." and "I have read the Right of Revocation." before submitting the order. Thereby, these GTCs become a part of the Client's offer.

2. After receiving the order, redfries shall email an automatic order confirmation to the Client confirming the technical receipt of the order by redfries and reiterating the details of the Client's order. The Client can print this email and/or save it in his/her mailbox. The automatic order confirmation shall merely document that the Client's order has been received by redfries's computer system and shall not yet constitute acceptance of the Client's purchase offer. The purchase agreement shall not be formed until redfries accepts the offer by sending the merchandise or expressly confirms acceptance of the offer with the Client by e-mail or in writing. If advance payment was chosen the delivery will only be done after the entire amount has been credited to redfries's account.

3. redfries shall save the wording of the contract, i.e. the Client's order information, the acceptance by redfries, and these GTCs.

The Client must keep the password secret and must not share it with third parties under any circumstances.

3. If the Client is a consumer, the risk of accidental sinking, destruction, or loss of the delivered merchandise shall transfer to the Client at the time the merchandise is delivered to the Client or the Client is in default of acceptance.

§ 6 Payment method, due date of payment, default of payment

1. The Client may pay by means of advance payment, through “PayPal” which offers further methods of payment, as well as through the online payment service Sofortüberweisung.

Further, we shall retain the right to charge reminder fees as well as to claim additional damages.

§ 7 Offsetting, retention rights

If the Client is an entrepreneur, he/she shall only be entitled to exercise the right of retention or the right to withhold performance against claims made by redfries if his/her counterclaims were ascertained with legal force, and are recognised by redfries, his/her counterclaims are undisputed or are based on the same contractual relationship (e.g. on the same purchase agreement).

Essential contractual obligations are the basic, elementary obligations under the contractual relationship, the fulfilment of which enable the orderly performance of the contract in the first place, and violation thereof would endanger the achievement of the purpose of the contract and which the contracting party can and will rely on compliance therewith on a regular basis. The liability for intentional or grossly negligent breaches of duty, fraudulent concealment of defects or assumption of a quality
guarantee as well as for claims based on mandatory statutory provisions, such as the Product Liability Act, remains unaffected.
