1) Scope of application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Alexandra Renke-Flanderka (hereinafter "Seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") with the Seller in respect of the goods displayed by the Seller in his online shop. Herewith the inclusion of own conditions of the customer is contradicted, unless it is agreed otherwise.
1.2 For contracts for the delivery of digital content, these General Terms and Conditions shall apply mutatis mutandis, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.3 These General Terms and Conditions shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless expressly agreed otherwise.
1.4 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can predominantly neither be attributed to his commercial nor his self-employed professional activity. Entrepreneur in the sense of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
1.5 Digital content within the meaning of these GTC is all data not on a physical data carrier, which is produced in digital form and made available by the Seller under the granting of certain rights of use regulated more precisely in these GTC.
1.6 Depending on the Seller's product description, the subject matter of the contract may be both the purchase of goods by way of a one-off delivery and the purchase of goods by way of a permanent delivery (hereinafter referred to as "subscription contract"). In a subscription agreement, the Seller undertakes to supply the Customer with the goods owed under the agreement for the duration of the agreed term of the agreement at the time intervals owed under the agreement.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop 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. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping basket and completing 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 completing the ordering process.
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), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
by requesting payment from the customer after placing his order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the dispatch of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence 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 text of the contract is 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 sending the customer's order. The seller shall not make the contract text 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 retrieved by the customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.5 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 that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 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.
Goods that are specially cut to size (fabrics, ribbons, etc.) are excluded from the right of withdrawal.
Downloads and workshops are also excluded from the right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's withdrawal policy.
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 payment in advance 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.
4.6 If the payment method "SOFORT" is selected, the payment is 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 with PIN/TAN procedure that has been activated for participation in "SOFORT", must legitimise himself accordingly during the payment process and must 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 detailed information on the "SOFORT" payment method is available to the customer on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.
4.7 If the payment method SEPA direct debit is selected, the invoice amount is due for payment after a SEPA direct debit mandate has been issued, but not before the deadline for the advance information has expired. The direct debit shall be collected when the ordered goods leave the Seller's warehouse, but not before expiry of the deadline for the advance information. Pre-notification is any communication (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) from the seller to the customer announcing a debit by SEPA Direct Debit. If the direct debit is not honoured due to a lack of sufficient funds in the account or due to the provision of incorrect bank details, or if the customer objects to the direct debit although he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the fees incurred by the respective credit institution as a result of the chargeback if he is responsible for this.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods shall be made by dispatch 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 transport company returns the dispatched goods to the Seller because delivery to the Customer was not possible, the Customer shall bear the costs for the unsuccessful dispatch. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller had given the customer reasonable advance notice of the service. Furthermore, 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 revocation by the customer, the provision made in the Seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the return costs.
5.3 In the event of self-collection, the Seller shall first inform the Customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by the Customer are ready for collection. After receipt of this e-mail, the customer may collect the goods from the Seller's registered office by arrangement with the Seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
5.4 Digital content is provided to the customer exclusively in electronic form as follows:
- by download

6.3 The granting of rights shall only become effective when the customer has paid the contractually owed remuneration in full. The Seller may provisionally permit the use of the contractual content even before this point in time. Such provisional permission shall not constitute a transfer of rights.
7) Duration and termination of subscription contracts
7.1 Subscription contracts are concluded for an indefinite period of time, but at least for the minimum term shown in the respective product description in the Seller's online shop. The subscription contract may be terminated at any time during the minimum term at the end of the minimum term and at any time after the end of the minimum term with a notice period of 14 days.
7.2 The right to extraordinary termination for good cause remains unaffected. Good cause shall be deemed to exist if the terminating party, taking into account all circumstances of the individual case and weighing the interests of both parties, cannot reasonably be expected to continue the contractual relationship until the agreed termination or until the expiry of a notice period.
7.3 Notice of termination shall be given in writing or in text form (e.g. by e-mail).
