1) Scope of Application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of DELYCHI GmbH (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods, which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") concludes 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 These GTC shall 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 neither commercial nor self-employed.
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 self-employed 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. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by fax, by e-mail, by post or by online contact form.
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.
2.5 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/help/201751590. If the Customer selects "Amazon Payments" as the payment method during the online ordering process, the Customer also issues a payment order to Amazon by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the time when the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
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 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.
2.7 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.
2.8 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 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 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 installments), 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 credit check using the transmitted customer data. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the selected payment method in case 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 pay to PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by 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/.
5) Delivery and shipping terms
5.1 If the Seller offers to ship the goods, the 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 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 an effective exercise of the right of revocation by the Customer, the provision made in the Seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the return costs.
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 forwarding agent, 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 pass to the customer only upon delivery of the goods to the customer or a person authorized to receive the goods. Notwithstanding the foregoing, 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 forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment, if the customer has commissioned the forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named such person or institution to the customer.
5.4 The Seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in case 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 case 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 If the Seller offers the goods for collection, the Customer may collect the ordered goods within the business hours indicated by the Seller at the address indicated by the Seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
5.6 Vouchers shall be provided to the Customer as follows:
- by e-mail
- by mail
6) Retention of title
6.1 Vis-à-vis consumers, the seller retains ownership of the delivered goods until full payment of the purchase price owed.
6.2 With respect to entrepreneurs, the Seller shall retain title to the delivered goods until all claims arising from an ongoing business relationship have been settled in full.
6.3 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, he shall be entitled to resell the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business. The customer shall assign to the seller in advance all claims against third parties arising therefrom in the amount of the respective invoice value (including value added tax). This assignment shall apply regardless of whether the reserved goods have been resold without or after processing. The customer shall remain authorized to collect the claims even after the assignment. The authority of the seller to collect the claims himself remains unaffected. However, the Seller shall not collect the receivables as long as the Customer meets its payment obligations to the Seller, is not in default of payment and no application for the opening of insolvency proceedings has been filed.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
Unless otherwise stipulated in the following provisions, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply. Deviating from this, the following shall apply to contracts for the delivery of goods:
7.1 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur,
- the Seller shall have the choice of the type of subsequent performance;
- in the case of new goods, the limitation period for defects shall be one year from delivery of the goods;
- in the case of used goods, the rights and claims for defects are excluded;
- the limitation period shall not start again if a replacement delivery is made within the scope of liability for defects.
7.2 The above-mentioned limitations of liability and shortening of the period shall not apply to
- to claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses of 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 Seller to provide updates for digital products, in case of contracts for the delivery of goods with digital elements.
7.3 Furthermore, for entrepreneurs, the statutory limitation periods for any statutory recourse claim, if any, shall remain unaffected.
7.4 If the Customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of § 1 of the German Commercial Code (HGB), it shall be subject to the commercial duty of inspection and notification of defects pursuant to § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations regulated therein, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved.
7.5 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 has no effect on his legal or contractual claims for defects.
The Seller shall be liable to the Customer for all contractual, quasi-contractual and statutory claims, including claims in tort, for damages and reimbursement of expenses as follows:
8.1 The Seller shall be liable for any legal reason without limitation
- in case of intent or gross negligence,
- in case of intentional or negligent injury to life, body or health,
- on the basis of a warranty promise, unless otherwise regulated in this respect,
- on the basis of mandatory liability such as under the Product Liability Act.
8.2 If the Seller negligently breaches a material contractual obligation, liability shall be limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, unless liability is unlimited pursuant to the preceding clause. Material contractual obligations are obligations which the contract imposes on the Seller according to its content in order to achieve the purpose of the contract, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and compliance with which the Customer may regularly rely on.
8.3 Otherwise, any liability of the Seller shall be excluded.
8.4 The above liability provisions shall also apply with regard to the Seller's liability for its vicarious agents and legal representatives.

The customer alone is responsible for the procurement and acquisition of rights to this content. The customer declares and assumes responsibility that he has the right to use the content provided to the seller. In particular, he shall ensure that no rights of third parties are violated thereby, in particular copyrights, trademark rights and personal rights.
9.2 The Customer shall indemnify the Seller against claims of third parties which the latter may assert against the Seller in connection with an infringement of their rights by the contractual use of the Customer's content by the Seller. In this regard, the Customer shall also assume the necessary costs of legal defense, including all court and attorney's fees in the statutory amount. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the infringement. In the event of a claim by a third party, the customer is obligated to provide the seller immediately, truthfully and completely with all information necessary for the examination of the claims and a defense.
9.3 The Seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the Customer for this purpose violates statutory or official prohibitions or offends common decency.
