1) Scope

1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “GTC”) of ILH International GmbH (hereinafter “Seller”) shall 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 store. The inclusion of the customer’s own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.

1.2 These GTC shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise agreed.

1.3 For the purposes of these GTC, a consumer 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 Seller’s online store 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 may submit the Offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller’s online store. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer makes a legally binding offer to enter into a contract for the goods in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes 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), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer shall be 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’s order has been placed.

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 acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer and ends at the end 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 a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.

2.4 If a payment method offered by PayPal is selected, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: “PayPal”), subject to the PayPal Terms of Use, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/en/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or – if the customer does not have a PayPal account – subject to the terms and conditions for payments without a PayPal account, available at https://www.paypal.com/en/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the customer pays by means of a payment method offered by PayPal that can be selected in the online ordering process, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer’s offer at the time the customer clicks the button that completes the ordering process.

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’s order has been sent. 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 store before sending 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 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 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 which completes the ordering process.

2.7 Only the German language is 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 for order processing is accurate 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 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller’s cancellation 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 place of 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 shall be borne by the Customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of funds 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 store.

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 in which he makes advance payment to the customer (e.g. purchase on account or payment by installments), he assigns his payment claim 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 performs a credit check using the transmitted customer data. The Seller reserves the right to refuse the selected payment method to the Customer in case of a negative verification result. If the selected payment method is approved, the customer shall pay the invoice amount within the agreed payment period or in the agreed payment intervals. In this case, he can only pay to PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipment, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes, even in the case of assignment of claims.

4.6 If a payment method offered via the payment service “mollie” is selected, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider Mollie B.V., Keizersgracht 313, 1016 EE Amsterdam, the Netherlands (hereinafter: “mollie”).

Further information on “mollie” is available on the Internet at https://www.mollie.com/de/.

4.7 If a payment method offered via the payment service “Stripe” is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter “Stripe”).

The seller reserves the right to offer the payment method purchase on account only up to a certain order volume and to reject this payment method if the specified order volume is exceeded. In this case, the seller will inform the customer about a corresponding payment restriction in his payment information in the online store.

4.9 If the SEPA Direct Debit payment method is selected, the invoice amount shall be due for payment after a SEPA Direct Debit mandate has been issued, but not before expiry of the period for advance information. The direct debit is collected when the ordered goods leave the seller’s warehouse, but not before the expiry of the period for 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 honored 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 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.

4.10 If the SEPA Direct Debit payment method is selected, the invoice amount shall be due for payment after a SEPA Direct Debit mandate has been issued, but not before expiry of the period for advance information. The direct debit is collected when the ordered goods leave the seller’s warehouse, but not before the expiry of the period for 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 honored 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 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. The seller reserves the right to perform a credit check when selecting the payment method SEPA direct debit and to reject this payment method in case of a negative credit check.

4.11 If the payment method Direct Debit via Stripe is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: “Stripe”). In this case, Stripe will collect the invoice amount from the Customer’s bank account after issuing a SEPA Direct Debit Mandate, but not before the expiry of the Pre-Notification period on behalf of the Seller.

If the direct debit is not honored 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 debit although he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the fees incurred by the reversal of the respective credit institution if he is responsible for this. The seller reserves the right to conduct a credit check when selecting the payment method SEPA direct debit and to reject this payment method in case of a negative credit check.

4.12 If the payment method credit card via Stripe is selected, the invoice amount is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract.

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.

Deviating from this, if the payment method PayPal is selected, the delivery address deposited by the customer with PayPal at the time of payment 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.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall pass to the customer, even in the case of consumers, as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the carrier, freight forwarder or other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment, if the customer has commissioned the carrier, freight forwarder or other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named such person or institution to the customer.
