1) Range of validity
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Christiane Bothe, trading as "Alraune-Esoterik" (hereafter referred to as "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereafter referred to as "Customer") concludes 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 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly not attributable to his or her commercial or self-employed professional activity. 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 or her commercial or self-employed professional activity.
2) Conclusion of the contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve for the submission of 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 basket and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer may also submit the offer to the seller by telephone or by e-mail.
2.3 The seller may 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 accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer 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 is no longer bound by his 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 submitting his order, the order data will be archived on the Seller's website and can be accessed by the Customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the relevant 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 magnification 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 that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
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/her 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.
2.9 The following terms and conditions shall apply additionally to contracts for the delivery of weapons:
2.9.1 When ordering goods covered by the Weapons Act of the Federal Republic of Germany (WaffG), the customer must be of legal age. Customers wishing to acquire weapons and ammunition listed in Annex 2 of the Weapons Act as weapons and ammunition requiring a permit must hold an acquisition permit. The Seller shall indicate in the respective item description if the goods are covered by the WaffG or are subject to authorisation within the meaning of Annex 2 of the WaffG.
2.9.2 When placing an order for goods covered by the Weapons Act, the customer assures, by submitting his order, that he is at least 18 years of age and that his name and address details are correct. The customer further undertakes that only he himself will take receipt of the goods. The goods will only be handed over after a successful age check and authentication of the customer.
2.9.3 In the case of an order for goods which are subject to authorisation under the Weapons Act, proof of the acquisition permit must also be provided. Goods requiring a permit shall only be sold and delivered upon presentation of a valid purchase permit in the original or as a publicly (officially or notarially) certified copy of all labelled pages. The goods will only be handed over after a successful age check and authentication of the customer.
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 withdrawal policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
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 In the case of 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 seller's online shop.
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 the payment method "SOFORT" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 München (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", must identify himself accordingly during the payment process and must confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT". The payment transaction is carried out immediately afterwards by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account is debited. More detailed information on the "SOFORT" payment method is available to the customer on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods shall be made by shipping to the delivery address provided 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 if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. In the event of an effective exercise of the right of cancellation by the customer, the provision made in the seller's cancellation policy shall apply to the costs of returning the goods.
5.3 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.
5.4 Self-collection is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) Retention of title
If the seller makes advance payment, he shall retain 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 the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
7.2 If the customer 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.
7.3 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 in accordance with their customary use for a building 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 shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Applicable law
8.1 All legal relations between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws on the international sale of movable goods. 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.
8.2 Furthermore, this choice of law with regard to the statutory right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
9) Alternative dispute resolution
9.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the internet at the following link:
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts involving a consumer.
9.2 The Seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
