1. The following general terms and conditions are applicable for all contracts between us and the buyer (hereafter referred to as the "customer") which involve an order placed by the customer through the online shop operated by us on the website www.heibi-living.de, even if an explicit reference should not be made in an individual instance in the future.
The customer's own terms and conditions are explicitly rejected. Under no circumstances shall these form an integral part of the contract.
2. Customers are both consumers and contractors for the purposes of these general terms and conditions.
3. The customer hereby declares that he/she explicitly waives the implementation of his/her own general terms and conditions, even if his/her written submissions contain reference to the general terms and conditions of his/her company or if a reference was made to these in his/her contractual documentation.
1. In principle, our quotations are non-binding and free of obligation. In a legal sense, they only represent an invitation for submission of an offer of contract on the part of the customer.
2. The order by the customer submits an offer to us to conclude a purchase contract. The customer is bound to this offer for ten days from the date on which we received it.
3. After placing an order, the customer shall receive an e-mail which confirms our receipt of the order and lists its details (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not signify acceptance of the customer's offer, but merely provides information that the order has been received by us.
4. The contract shall materialise if we accept the customer's order. The order is accepted if we provide a separate confirmation or once the customer has received the goods after they were dispatched by us. No contract shall materialise for products from the very same order which have not been sent. We also have the right to accept the customer order by sending a written acceptance.
5. Conclusion of the contract takes place with the reservation that services shall not be provided at all, or not in their entirety, in the event of incorrect or improper delivery to us by our own supplier. This only applies in the event that we are not responsible for this non-delivery. In the event of non-availability or of partial availability of the goods, the customer shall be informed immediately. Payment will be refunded immediately.
