General Terms and Conditions

1. Scope

The following GTC apply to all orders made in our online shop.

2. Contracting parties, conclusion of contract

The purchase contract comes into effect with this email confirmation.

  • If you have chosen payment by credit card, the contract comes into effect when the credit card is debited.
  • If you have chosen to pay via PayPal, the contract comes into effect when you confirm the payment instruction to PayPal.

4. Postage and packing

We deliver free of charge within Germany.

5. Payment

The following payment options are available in our shop:

Pre-payment If you choose pre-payment as the payment method, we will provide you with our bank details in the order confirmation and will deliver the goods upon receipt of payment.

Payment on delivery If you choose payment on delivery as the payment method, an additional amount of €6.50 will be charged. Additionally, €2.00 must be paid directly to the delivery agent. Payment on delivery is only available in Germany.

Credit card Your credit card will be debited upon completion of the order.
3-D Secure is the security standard for online payments. Through 3-D Secure's additional authentication step, the card holder is able to shop online significantly more securely. How do you recognise if a website's payment procedure is 3-D Secure? Look for the "Verified by Visa", "MasterCard SecureCode" and "American Express SafeKey" symbols, which all use 3-D Secure to achieve substantially improved security compared to other payment procedures. By including additional authentication through entry of a personal Secure Code, the card holder provides authorisation for their bank to complete the transaction.
THE AUTHENTICATION PROCESS
1. The card holder enters their card number and personal details on the payment page of a website, as usual.
2. The online retailer sends a request to the card holder's bank to authorise the transaction.
3. The bank opens their own secure channel to confirm the card holder's identity.
4. The card holder enters their personal Secure Code, and it is verified by the bank (within seconds).
5. The bank confirms the identity of the card holder.
6. The online transaction is completed.
If you choose payment via credit card, an additional 0.00 percent of the purchase price will be charged.

PayPal You pay the invoice amount via the online retailer PayPal. You will first need to register with PayPal if you are not already, then you will have to prove your identity by means of your login data and then confirm to us the payment instruction (in exceptional cases you might be able to use guest access). You will receive further advice during the order process.
If you choose payment via PayPal/PayPal Express, an additional 0.00 percent of the purchase price will be charged.

Amazon payments With Amazon Payments you are able to use your payment options and addresses, saved with your Amazon account, fast and secure. Also you have the buyers protection and A to Z guarantee, provided by Amazon.
If you choose payment via Amazon Payments, an additional 0.00 percent of the purchase price will be charged.

DIRECTeBanking We also offer DIRECTeBanking. In this case, we immediately receive the transfer credit. This will speed up the entire order process. You only need an account number, sort code, PIN and TAN for this. Via the secure payment form of Sofort AG, which is not accessible for retailers, DIRECTeBanking carries out an automated transfer from your online bank account in real time. The purchase price is transferred immediately and directly to the bank account of the retailer. If you choose DIRECTeBanking, a pre-filled in form will open at the end of the order process. This form already contains our bank details. Additionally, the transfer amount and the reference are already filled in in the form. You only have to choose the country in which you have your online account and fill in the sort code. Then you fill in the same data as when registering for online banking (account number and PIN). Confirm your order by entering the TAN. You will immediately receive confirmation of the transaction. In principle, every internet user can choose DIRECTeBanking as the payment method, if he/she has an activated online account with a PIN/TAN procedure. Please note that a few banks do not yet provide DIRECTeBanking. More information on whether your bank supports this service can be found here:
DIRECTeBanking FAQ.
If you choose payment via DIRECTeBanking, an additional 0.00 percent of the purchase price will be charged.
