2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The Customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping basket and completing the electronic ordering process, the Customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by issuing the order and payment liabilities with the respective final click approval.
2.3 The Seller acknowledges orders without undue delay by sending an email to the Customer after the ordering process was successfully completed. 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), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the Customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the Customer is decisive, or
- by operating payment from the customer after placing his 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 dispatch of the offer by the Customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.

If the Customer has set up a user account in the Seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the Seller's website and can be retrieved by the Customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before binding submission of the order via the online order form of the Seller, the Customer can recognize possible input errors by attentively reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better detection of input errors can be the browser's zoom function, which enlarges the display on the screen. Within the framework of the electronic ordering process, the Customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until issuing the order and payment liabilities with the respective final click approval.
2.7 German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the purchase contract.
2.8 The order handling and establishment of contact take place as a rule by e-mail and automated order handling.
