1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Marlene Busch Zoilo, trading as "Makidy Muttermilchschmuck" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise agreed.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly not attributable to his or her commercial or independent professional activity.
1.4 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) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online shop 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 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 offer to enter into a contract with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.3 The seller may accept the customer's offer within five days,
- by sending the client 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 client is relevant, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer is relevant, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after the order has been placed.
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 acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer 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 is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and communicated to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract available beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data shall be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed by the customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before bindingly placing 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 during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button which completes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contacting usually take place 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 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) Right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers have a basic right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's instructions on withdrawal.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices. Value added tax is not shown, as the seller is a small entrepreneur within the meaning of the UStG. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
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 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.
4.4 If a payment method offered via the payment service "PayPal" is selected, the payment shall be processed via PayPal, whereby PayPal may also use the services of third party payment service providers for this purpose. If the Seller also offers payment methods via PayPal for which he makes advance payments to the Customer (e.g. purchase on account or payment by instalments), he shall assign his payment claim to PayPal or to the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal and specifically named to the Customer. Before accepting the Seller's declaration of assignment, PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal shall carry out a creditworthiness check using the transmitted customer data. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the selected payment method in the event of a negative check result. If the selected payment method is approved, the customer must pay the invoice amount within the agreed payment period or in the agreed payment intervals. In this case, he can only make payment to PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, the seller remains responsible for general customer enquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, dispatch, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes, even in the event of assignment of the claim.
4.5 If the payment method "SOFORT" is selected, the payment will be processed via 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 that has been activated for participation in "SOFORT", must identify himself accordingly during the payment process and must confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT". The payment transaction is then immediately carried out by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account is debited. More detailed information on the "SOFORT" payment method is available to the customer on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com
4.6 If a payment method offered via the payment service "Stripe" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter "Stripe"). The individual payment methods offered via Stripe will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop. Stripe may use other payment services for the processing of payments, for which special payment conditions may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately. Further information on Stripe is available on the Internet at https://stripe.com
4.7 If the credit card payment method via Stripe is selected, the invoice amount is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract. The payment is processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: "Stripe"). Stripe reserves the right to carry out a credit check and to refuse this payment method in the event of a negative credit check.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions

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 return if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. In the event of an effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision on this in the seller's instructions on revocation shall apply to the costs of return.
5.3 If the customer is acting as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall pass to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the carrier, freight forwarder or other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment. If the customer is acting as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall not pass until the goods are handed over to the customer or a person entitled to receive them. Notwithstanding this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall pass to the customer, even in the case of consumers, as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the carrier, freight forwarder or other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment, if the customer has commissioned the carrier, freight forwarder or other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment to carry 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 shall only apply in the event that the Seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and the Seller has, with due diligence, concluded a specific covering transaction with the supplier. The Seller shall make all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the event of non-availability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer shall be informed without delay and the consideration shall be refunded without delay.

7.5 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of 1 HGB (German Commercial Code), he shall be subject to the commercial obligation to examine and report pursuant to 377 HGB. If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations regulated therein, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved.
7.6 If the customer is acting as a consumer, he is requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the deliverer and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this shall have no effect on his legal or contractual claims for defects.
8) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to certain specifications of the customer
8.1 If, according to the content of the contract, the seller is also obliged to process the goods according to certain specifications of the customer in addition to the delivery of the goods, the customer shall provide the seller with all content required for the processing, such as texts, images or graphics in the file formats, formatting, image and file borders specified by the seller and grant him the rights of use required for this. The customer alone is responsible for the procurement and acquisition of rights to this content. The customer declares and accepts responsibility for the fact that he has the right to use the contents made available to the seller. In particular, he shall ensure that no rights of third parties are infringed thereby, in particular copyrights, trademark rights and personal rights.

In the event of a claim by a third party, the customer is obliged to provide the seller immediately, truthfully and completely with all information required for the examination of the claims and a defence.
8.3 The seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the customer violates legal or harmful prohibitions or offends common decency.
