(2) Business between vendor and client is exclusively subject to these terms and conditions in their valid form and version at the time of order. Contrary or alternative terms or conditions brought forward by the contracting party or buyer shall be deemed to be void unless agreed on and accepted expressly in writing.
(3) Products on the platform lilianvontrapp.com are only available for purchase by consumers. Businesses may not purchase products through lilianvontrapp.com, separate contracts must be obtained in writing directly from the vendor.
(4) Whether the client is a consumer shall be determined according to the definition in § 13 BGB. If the client is accordingly not a consumer, he shall be deemed a business.
§ 2 contract
(1) A contract can be established through the order process on the website and can be completed as follows:
(a) The client can choose from an assortment of products, which are collected in the shopping “bag”. By clicking “checkout” the client reaches a page where he may enter his delivery and invoice addresses and chose his payment method. This page can only be reached by accepting these terms and conditions. After entering invoice and payment details, the client is presented with a summary of his order. By clicking “pay”, the client places his binding order of the items in his shopping bag. Before placing his order, the client has the ability to view and change his details at all times. The client may do this by navigating back in browser or by cancelling and restarting the checkout process.
(b) The vendor then sends the client an automated confirmation of receipt, including order, delivery and payment details. In this receipt, the vendor informs the client, that the order is undergoing review. This confirmation can be printed by the client by selecting the “print” option of his email client. The confirmation of receipt merely documents, that the order has been received and does not imply acceptance of the order by the vendor. The vendor will then determine, whether he can accept the order. In case the order can only be delivered in part or not at all, the vendor will inform the client immediately. If the order can be delivered, the vendor will inform the client through an order confirmation email.
(2) When ordering through the online store of the vendor, a contract is established with:

§ 3 delivery & transfer of risk

(3) If the client is a business, the above mentioned risks are carried by the client once the order has been dispatched by the carrier.
§ 4 retention of title
(1) until the order (including VAT and shipping costs) has been paid in full, the merchandize remains sole property of the vendor.
(2) the following is only applicable to business clients: The client is not authorized to sell delivered products under retention of title. In case of a sale, the client assigns all claims arising out of this sale up to the amount owed plus 20% to the vendor.
§ 5 prices and delivery
(1) All prices on the website of the vendor are quoted including the respective value added tax (VAT). Shipping costs are not included.

§ 6 payment
(1) The client can pay through advance invoice payment or paypal.
(2) Paypal is an external payment service. To pay via paypal, the client can do so either through his own paypal account or through selecting “pay without account”. If the client chooses paypal as his method of payment, he is forwarded to the paypal website, where he can either create a new account, log in with an excisting account or pay without a paypal account. He is then prompted to commence payment according to the instructions on the paypal website. When paying through paypal, the order will be dispatched as soon as the vendor has received confirmation about the successful transaction by paypal.
(3) When paying through invoice advance payment, the client will be informed about the payable amount and our banking details via email, as soon as the order is ready for dispatch.
(4) Invoice payment is due when the client has received the order confirmation and the contract has been established, unless different terms have been agreed upon in writing. If a time for payment has been specified by reference to the calendar, the client will be in default without a reminder once that date has passed. In this case he shall be liable to pay 5 percent above base rate default interest. In case the client is a business, he shall be liable to pay 9 percent above base rate default interest, as well as a fixed rate of 40 Euros.
(5) The client’s obligation to pay default interest does not diminish the vendor’s right to claim further damages caused by delayed payment or to withdraw from the contract according to § 323 BGB.
§ 7 warranty
(1) If the product has been received with a material defect, the client has the right to ask the vendor to eliminate this defect or to replace the product with a flawless version. The vendor has the right to deny the client’s chosen form of rectification, if it entails disproportional costs.
(2) If rectification fails, if it is unreasonable to the client or the vendor denies rectification, the client is entitled to withdraw from the contract, reduce the sales price or claim damages for his fruitless expenditures according to relevant applicable law. A client’s claim to damages are additionally subject to special conditions as written in § 8 of these terms and conditions.

(5) Warranty shall only be applicable to delivered products, if it has been granted specifically in the order confirmation of those products.
§ 8 liability
(1) Clients’ claims for damages shall be excluded, unless they result from injuries to life, body or health of a person, from a violation of essential contractual obligations, or from the intentional infringement of obligations by the vendor, his legal representatives or agents. Contractual obligations are essential, if they are deemed necessary to fulfil the objective of the contract and which clients can normally rely on to be fulfilled.
(2) If a violation of essential contractual obligations occurs, the vendor only bears liability for foreseeable damage typical for this type of contract, if the violation was caused by simple negligence, unless it results in injuries to life, body or health of a person.
(3) The limitations detailed in parts (1) and (2) also apply to legal representatives and agents of the vendor, if claims for damages are made against them directly.
(4) Regulations of product liability law remain unaffected.
