1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of "Elektrotechnik Schabus GmbH & Co. KG / Wolfgang Schabus" (hereinafter "Seller"), shall apply to all contracts 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 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.
1.3 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.
2.1 The product representations 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. In doing so, after placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer may also submit the offer to the seller by telephone, fax, e-mail or 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 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 receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed the order.
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 the acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the sending of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry 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 to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.
2.4 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller and sent to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent its order together with these GTC. In addition, the text of the contract will be archived on the Seller's website and can be accessed by the Customer free of charge via its password-protected customer account by providing the relevant login data, provided that the Customer has created a customer account in the Seller's online store before submitting its order.
2.5 Before bindingly placing the order via the Seller's online order form, the Customer may recognize 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 continuously correct his entries before the binding submission of the order within the framework of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions. In addition, all entries are displayed again in a confirmation window before the binding submission of the order and can also be corrected there using the usual keyboard and mouse functions.
2.6 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 Order processing and contacting usually take place via e-mail and automated order processing. The Customer shall ensure that the e-mail address provided by it 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.
3.1 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.

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 are to be borne by the Customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money 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 Various payment options are available to the Customer, which are indicated 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 otherwise.
This requires, among other things, that the customer opens a PayPal account or already has such an account.
5.1 The delivery of goods is regularly made by mail order and to the delivery address specified by the customer. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the purchase transaction of the seller is decisive. Deviating from this, when selecting the payment method PayPal, the delivery address deposited by the customer at the time of payment at PayPal is decisive.
5.2 If the transport company returns the shipped goods to the Seller because delivery to the Customer was not possible, the Customer shall bear the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller had given the customer reasonable advance notice of the service. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the Hinsendung if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer effectively exercises the right of withdrawal, the provision made in this regard in the seller's cancellation policy shall apply.
5.3 In case of self-collection, the Seller shall first inform the Customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by the Customer are ready for collection. After receiving this e-mail, the Customer may pick up the goods at the Seller's registered office by arrangement with the Seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
