5. Payment

The following payment methods are basically available in our online shop.

Advance payment

If you select advance payment we provide you with our bank details in a separate e-mail and deliver the goods on receipt of funds.

PayPal Plus

Dear costumer, this method of payment  is – due to technical issues – currently not available. Thank you for your understanding.

Within the context of the PayPal Plus payment service, we offer you various payment methods as PayPal services. You will be forwarded to PayPal’s online website. You may enter your payment details there and confirm the use of your data by PayPal and the payment instructions to PayPal. You will receive additional information during the ordering process.

If you have selected the PayPal payment type, in order to pay the invoice amount, you must be registered there or register first and identify yourself with your access data. The payment transaction will be carried out automatically by PayPal directly after confirmation of the payment instructions.

If you have selected the credit card payment type, in order to pay the invoice amount, you do not need to be registered with PayPal. The payment transaction will be carried out by your credit card company upon request by PayPal and debited to your card, directly after confirmation of the payment instructions and after your identification as the legal cardholder.

If you have selected the direct debit payment type, in order to pay the invoice amount, you do not need to be registered with PayPal. With the confirmation of the payment instructions, you are granting PayPal a direct debit mandate. PayPal will inform you separately about the date of the account debit in an advance notification (pre-notification). With the submission of the direct debit directly after confirmation of the payment instructions, PayPal will request its bank to initiate the payment transaction. The payment transaction is automatically carried out and your account is debited.

If you have selected the invoice payment type, in order to pay the invoice amount, you do not need to be registered with PayPal. After a successful address and creditworthiness check and placement of your order, we will assign our claim to PayPal. In this case, you may only pay to PayPal with a debt-discharging effect. For payment processing via PayPal – in addition to our GTC – the GTC and data protection policy of PayPal shall apply. Additional information and the complete GTC of PayPal for invoice purchase can be found at www.paypal.com.

6. Retention of title

The goods shall remain our property until full payment is made.

7. Damage during delivery

If the goods are delivered with obvious damage caused during delivery, please report the defect to the carrier and notify us without delay. Failure to make a complaint or to make contact does not in any way affect your legal rights or the enforcement of such rights, notably your warranty rights. However, in doing so you help us to press our own claims against the carrier or transport insurer.

8. Warranty and guarantees

We are under a legal duty to supply products that are in conformity with this contract.

The statutory warranty rights governed by the law of the country where the consumer has his habitual residence apply.

Information on any additional guarantees and their precise conditions that may apply can be found next to the product and on specific information pages in the shop, if applicable.
