1) Scope

1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Halb Flaschen GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter "Seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.

1.2 Consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

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 enable the customer to submit a binding offer.

2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by telephone or 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 email), whereby receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
  • by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
  • by asking the customer to pay after placing their order.

If there are several of the above alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the above alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer has sent 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 is considered a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound to his declaration of intent.

2.4 If you select a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment will 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, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua /useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the conditions for payments without a PayPal account, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax- full. If the customer pays using 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 point at which the customer clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.

2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. E -mail, fax or letter). The seller does 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 accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.

2.6 Before the binding submission of the order via the seller's online order form, the customer can correct possible input errors by carefully reading the information presented 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 as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.

2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.

2.8 Order processing and contact are usually made 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 the 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 to process the order can be delivered.

2.9 When ordering alcoholic beverages, the customer confirms by submitting the order that they have reached the legally required minimum age. Using an age verification system, the seller ensures that the customer has reached the legally required minimum age. The goods are therefore only handed over after a successful age check and authentication of the customer.

3) Right of withdrawal

3.1 Consumers generally have a right of withdrawal.

3.2 More information on the right of cancellation can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.

4) Prices and terms of payment

4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.

4.2 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.

4.3 If you select a payment method offered via the "Shopify Payments" payment service, the payment will be processed by the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter "Stripes"). The individual payment methods offered via Shopify Payments are communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop. To process payments, Stripe can use other payment services for which special payment conditions may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately. Further information on "Shopify Payments" is available on the Internet at https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms-payments-de.

5) Terms of delivery and shipping

5.1 The delivery of goods takes place by mail to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the seller's order processing is decisive. Deviating from this, when selecting the PayPal payment method, the delivery address stored by the customer at PayPal at the time of payment is 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 delivery if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. If the customer effectively exercises the right of withdrawal, the regulation made in the seller's cancellation policy applies to the return costs.

5.3 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper delivery to himself. This only applies in the event that the seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and has concluded a specific hedging transaction with the supplier with due diligence. The seller will use all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. If the goods are unavailable or only partially available, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be reimbursed immediately.

5.4 Pickup is not possible for logistical reasons.

6) Retention of title

If the seller pays in advance, he retains 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 statutory provisions apply Liability for defects.

7.2 If the customer acts as a consumer, he is asked to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect whatsoever on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.

8) Governing Law

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law applies only 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.

9) Jurisdiction

If the customer acts as a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law with its registered office in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is the place of business of the seller. If the customer is based outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller's place of business is the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract if the contract or claims arising from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. In the above cases, however, the seller is in any case entitled to appeal to the court at the customer's registered office.

10) Alternative Dispute Resolution

10.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution under the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.

10.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
