1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of sonoro audio GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") with the Seller regarding the goods presented by the Seller in its online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own terms and conditions of sale are hereby rejected, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor related to his or her independent professional activity.
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 on behalf 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 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 e-mail or by telephone.
2.3 The Seller may accept the Customer's offer within five days,
- by sending the customer a written order confirmation or a printed order confirmation (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 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 If the payment method "Amazon Payments" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe s.c.a., 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "Amazon"), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe User Agreement, which can be viewed at https://payments.amazon.de
2.6 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 transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer's order has been sent. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online store before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.7 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 correct his entries during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that completes the ordering process.
2. 8 Different languages are available for the conclusion of the contract. The specific language selection is displayed in the online store.
2.9 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) Right of withdrawal
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 instructions on withdrawal.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. 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 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 on a later due date.
4.5 If a payment method offered via the "mollie" payment service is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Mollie B.V., Keizersgracht 313, 1016 EE Amsterdam, Netherlands (hereinafter: "mollie"). The individual payment methods offered via mollie are communicated to the customer in the seller's online store. To process payments, mollie may use other payment services for which special payment terms may apply, to which the Customer may be informed separately. Further information on "mollie" can be found on the Internet at https://www.mollie.com
4.6 If the payment method purchase on account is selected, the purchase price is due after the goods have been delivered and invoiced. In this case, the purchase price must be paid to Klarna AB, Sveavägen 46, 11134 Stockholm, Sweden (www.klarna.de) within 14 (fourteen) days of the invoice date without deduction, unless otherwise agreed. The payment method purchase on account requires a successful credit check by Klarna AB. If the customer is allowed to pay by invoice after a credit check, the payment will be processed in cooperation with Klarna AB, to which the seller assigns his payment claim. In this case, the customer can only make payment with debt-discharging effect to Klarna AB. In all other respects, the General Terms and Conditions of Klarna AB, which the customer can call up during the ordering process, shall apply. The seller reserves the right to offer the payment method purchase on account only up to a certain order volume and to reject this payment method if the specified order volume is exceeded. In this case, the seller will inform the customer of a corresponding payment restriction in the payment information in the online store.
4.7 If you choose a payment method offered via the payment service "Klarna", the payment will be processed by Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden (hereinafter "Klarna"). Further information and the terms and conditions of Klarna are available here:
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 If the Seller offers to ship the goods, delivery shall 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 shall be decisive.
5.2 If the delivery of the goods fails as a result of circumstances caused by the customer, 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 shipment 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 made in the seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the costs of returning the goods.
5.3 If the customer is acting as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall pass to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the freight forwarder, the carrier or any 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 in principle only pass to the customer or a person authorised to receive the goods when the goods are handed over to the customer. Notwithstanding the above, the risk of accidental loss or deterioration of the goods sold shall pass to the customer, even if he is a consumer, as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the carrier, freight forwarder or the person or establishment entrusted with the shipment, if the customer has entrusted the carrier, freight forwarder or the person or establishment entrusted with the shipment, and if the seller has not previously designated this person or establishment 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 concluded a specific covering transaction with the supplier with due diligence. 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 will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded without delay.
5.5 Collection by the customer is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) Retention of title
If the seller makes an advance payment, he shall retain ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
Unless otherwise stated in the following provisions, the provisions of statutory liability for defects shall apply. In deviation from this, the following applies to contracts for the delivery of goods:
7.1 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 shall be one year from delivery of the goods;
- the rights and claims due to defects are excluded in the case of used goods;
- the limitation period shall not recommence if a replacement delivery is made within the scope of liability for defects.
7.2 The aforementioned limitations of liability and shortening of time limits do not apply
- claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer,
- in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect,
- for goods which have been used for a building in accordance with their customary use 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 supply of goods with digital elements.
7.3 In addition, for entrepreneurs, the statutory limitation periods for any existing statutory right of recourse shall remain unaffected.
7.4 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 inspect and give notice of defects pursuant to § 377 HGB. If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations regulated therein, the goods shall be deemed approved.
7.5 If the customer is acting as a consumer, he is requested to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer fails to do so, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Applicable law
All legal relations between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws on the international sale of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
9) Place of jurisdiction
If the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law with its registered office in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract shall be the Seller's registered office. If the customer has its registered office outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Seller's registered office shall be the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract if the contract or claims arising from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. In the above cases, however, the Seller shall in any case be entitled to bring an action before the court at the Customer's place of business.
10) Alternative dispute resolution
10.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the internet at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchases or service contracts involving a consumer.
10.2 The Seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.
