1) Scope of application

 


1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Tolga Dak, trading as "Faces of the Night" (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 with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online store. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, 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 can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. 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 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.

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 shall be decisive, or
  • by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer shall be 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 point in time at which 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 at the end 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 If the customer chooses a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment will be processed by the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "PayPal"), subject to the PayPal Terms of Use, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the Terms for Payments without a PayPal Account, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the customer pays by means of a payment method offered by PayPal that can be selected in the online ordering process, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the time the customer clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.

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 transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order. 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 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 relevant 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 that concludes 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 are generally entitled to a right of revocation.

3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.


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, additional 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 is agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.

4.5 If the payment method "PayPal Credit" (payment in installments via PayPal) is selected, the Seller assigns its payment claim to PayPal. Before accepting the Seller's declaration of assignment, PayPal shall perform a credit check using the transmitted customer data. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the payment method "PayPal Credit" in case of a negative examination result. If the payment method "PayPal Credit" is allowed by PayPal, the customer has to pay the invoice amount to PayPal according to the conditions set by the seller, which are communicated to him in the online store of the seller. In this case, he can only pay to PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipment, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes, even in the case of assignment of claims.

4.6 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 will be executed immediately afterwards by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account will be debited. More detailed information about the payment method "SOFORT" can be found by the customer on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.

4.7 If a payment method offered via the payment service "Shopify Payments" 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 Shopify Payments are communicated to the Customer in the Seller's online store. For the processing of payments, Stripe may use other payment services, for which special payment conditions may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately. Further information on "Shopify Payments" is available on the Internet at https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms-payments-de.

4.8 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 shall be paid within 7 (seven) days of receipt of the invoice without deduction, unless otherwise agreed. The Seller reserves the right to offer the payment method purchase on account only up to a certain order volume and to refuse 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 his payment information in the online store.

4.9 If the payment method "PayPal Invoice" is selected, the Seller assigns its payment claim to PayPal. Before accepting the Seller's declaration of assignment, PayPal shall perform a credit check using the transmitted customer data. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the payment method "PayPal invoice" in case of a negative check result. If the payment method "PayPal invoice" is permitted by PayPal, the customer must pay the invoice amount to PayPal within 30 days of receipt of the goods, unless he is given a different payment deadline by PayPal. In this case, he can only pay to PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipment, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes, even in the case of assignment of claims. In addition, the General Terms and Conditions of Use for the Use of PayPal's Purchase on Account shall apply, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/pui-terms.

4.10 If a payment method offered via the payment service "Klarna" is selected, the payment will be processed via Klarna Bank AB (publ), Sveavägen 46, 111 34 Stockholm, Sweden (hereinafter "Klarna").

5) Delivery and shipping conditions

 


5.1 The delivery of goods is carried out by shipping to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the order processing of the seller is decisive.

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 shall not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises its right of revocation. In the event of effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision made in this regard in the seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the return costs.

5.3 In the event of self-collection, the Seller shall first inform the Customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by him are ready for collection. After receipt of this e-mail, the customer can pick up the goods at the seller's headquarters after consultation with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.


6) Retention of title

 


If the seller makes an advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.


7) Liability for defects (warranty)

 


7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply.

7.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, the following shall apply to used goods: Claims for defects shall be excluded if the defect only occurs after the expiry of one year from delivery of the goods. Defects occurring within one year from delivery of the goods may be claimed within the statutory period of limitation. However, the reduction of the period of liability to one year shall not apply to

  • for items which have been used for a building in accordance with their customary use and have caused its defectiveness,
  • for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses of the customer, as well as
  • in the event that the Seller has fraudulently concealed the defect.

7.3 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 thereof. If the customer does not comply with this, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.


8) Applicable Law

 


All legal relationships 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 to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence.


9) Alternative Dispute Resolution

 


9.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.

This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts involving a consumer.
