1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Sibolab UG (limited liability) (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 seller goods presented in its online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless something else has been agreed.
1.2 A 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.
1.3 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 their commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not constitute a binding offer from the seller, but serve as 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 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 e-mail, fax, post or telephone.
2.3 The seller can accept the offer of the customer within five days,
- by providing the customer with 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 access of the goods to the customer is decisive, or
- by asking the customer for payment after submitting his order.
Where several of the above alternatives are present, the contract shall come into force at the time when one of the above alternatives occurs first. The deadline for the acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the submission of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the submission of the offer. If the seller does not accept the offer of the customer within the aforementioned deadline, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound to his consent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller after the contract is concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller will not make the contract text 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 called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account, specifying the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before the binding submission of 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 as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that completes the ordering process.
2.7 The contract is concluded in German and English.
2.8 Order processing and contact are usually made via email 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.
3) Right of Withdrawal
3.1 consumers are basically entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of cancellation can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless the seller's product description indicates otherwise, the prices quoted are total prices that include the statutory value added tax. If applicable, additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise 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 money transfers by banks (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs can also be incurred in relation to the transfer of money 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 online shop of the seller.
4.4 If the payment method “SOFORT” is selected, payment will be processed by 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 activated for participation in "SOFORT", identify himself accordingly during the payment process and confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT". The payment transaction is carried out immediately afterwards by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account is debited. The customer can call up more information on the "SOFORT" payment method on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.
4.5 If you choose a payment method offered by the "Klarna" payment service, payment will be processed by Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden (hereinafter "Klarna"). More information and Klarna's terms and conditions can be found in the seller's payment information, which can be viewed at the following Internet address:
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 If the seller offers to ship the goods, the delivery will be made within the delivery area specified by the seller 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.
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. This does not apply with regard to the shipping costs if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer exercises his right of cancellation effectively, the provisions made in the seller's cancellation policy apply.
5.3 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold passes to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the forwarding agent, carrier or other person or institution responsible for carrying out the shipment. If the customer acts as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold only passes when the goods are handed over to the customer or a person authorized to receive them. Deviating from this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold also passes to the customer for consumers as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the freight forwarder, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise responsible for carrying out the shipment, if the Customer has commissioned the forwarding agent, carrier or other person or institution responsible for carrying out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.
5.4 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper self-delivery. This only applies in the event that the seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and the seller has concluded a specific hedging transaction with the supplier with due care. The seller will make every reasonable effort to procure the goods. In the event of the unavailability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be reimbursed immediately.
5.5 pickup is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) Retention of title
If the seller delivers in advance, he retains title to the delivered goods until full payment of the owed purchase price.
7) Liability for defects (guarantee)
7.1 Unless otherwise stated in the following regulations, the statutory liability for defects shall apply. Deviating from this, the following applies to contracts for the delivery of goods:
7.2 If the customer acts 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 is one year from delivery of the goods;
- in the case of used goods, the rights and claims due to defects are excluded;
- the statute of limitations does not begin again if a replacement delivery is made as part of the liability for defects.
7.3 The limitations of liability and reductions in deadlines set out above do not apply
- for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer,
- in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect,
- for goods that have been used for a building in accordance with their usual purpose 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 delivery of goods with digital elements.
7.4 In addition, it applies to entrepreneurs that the statutory limitation periods for any existing statutory right of recourse remain unaffected.
7.5 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of § 1 HGB, he is subject to the commercial obligation to examine and give notice of defects according to § 377 HGB. If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations regulated there, the goods are deemed to have been approved.
7.6 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 on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Applicable law
For all legal relations of the parties, the law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to the exclusion of the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice is valid only in so far as the protection afforded by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
If the customer acts as a merchant, legal entity under public law or special fund under public law with its seat in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract shall be the place of business of the seller. If the customer is located outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the place of business of the seller is the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract, if the contract or claims from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. However, in the above cases, the seller is in any case entitled to call the court at the customer's place of business.
