1) Scope
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Kathleen Bergmann (hereinafter "Seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") enters into with the Seller with regard to the terms and conditions specified by the Seller in his online -Shop completes the goods shown. 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 General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that cannot be predominantly attributed to either their commercial or independent professional activity.
1.3 An entrepreneur within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

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 rather serve to make a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. 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 on the button that completes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by email.
2.3 The seller can 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 email), 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 asking the customer to pay after placing their order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives are present, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting 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 is deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.4 If you select a payment method offered by PayPal, payment is processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: “PayPal”), under the jurisdiction of PayPal -Terms of use, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - under the terms and conditions for payments without a PayPal account, can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the customer pays using a payment method offered by PayPal that can be selected during the online ordering process, the seller declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the moment the customer clicks the button that completes the ordering process.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller after the contract has been concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller will not make the contract text available beyond this.
2.6 Before bindingly submitting 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 of better detecting input errors can be the browser's magnification function, which enlarges the display on the screen. As part of the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that completes the ordering process.
2.7 The German language is available for concluding the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contact usually take place via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the email address he provided to process the order is correct so that emails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all emails 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 generally have a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole place of residence and delivery address is outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.

4) Prices and payment terms
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices stated are total prices and include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs that may arise will be stated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which must be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for transferring money through credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may be incurred in relation to the money transfer even if the delivery does not take place 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 shop.
4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.5 If you select a payment method offered via the “PayPal” payment service, payment is processed via PayPal, although PayPal can also use the services of third-party payment service providers for this purpose. If the seller also offers payment methods via PayPal in which he makes advance payments to the customer (e.g. purchase on account or payment in installments), he assigns 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 carries out a credit check using the customer data transmitted. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the selected payment method in the event 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 at the agreed payment intervals. In this case, he can only make payments to PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal with a debt-discharging effect. However, even in the event of the assignment of claims, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. B. about the goods, delivery time, shipping, returns, complaints, cancellation declarations and shipments or credit notes.

5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 If the seller offers to ship the goods, delivery will take place 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 is decisive. Deviating from this, if you select the PayPal payment method, the delivery address provided by the customer with PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.
5.2 If 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 does not apply with regard to the shipping costs if the customer effectively exercises his right of cancellation. If the customer effectively exercises the right of cancellation, the return shipping costs will be subject to the provisions set out in the seller's cancellation policy.
5.3 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold passes to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the freight forwarder, the freight carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment. If the customer acts as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold is generally only transferred when the goods are handed over to the customer or a person authorized to receive them. Deviating from this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold, even in the case of consumers, passes to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the freight forwarder, the freight carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment, if the The customer commissions the freight forwarder, the freight forwarder or the other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.
5.4 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper delivery. This only applies in the event that the non-delivery is not the fault of the seller and the seller has concluded a specific cover transaction with the supplier with due care. The seller will 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 immediately.
5.5 Self-collection is not possible for logistical reasons.

6) Retention of title
If the seller makes advance payments, he reserves 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 regulations, the provisions of statutory liability for defects apply. Deviating 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;
- For new goods, the limitation period for defects is one year from delivery of the goods;
- In the case of used goods, rights and claims due to defects are excluded;
- the statute of limitations does not begin again if a replacement delivery is made within the scope of liability for defects.
7.2 The limitations of liability and shortening of deadlines regulated above do not apply
- for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer,
- in the event that the seller fraudulently concealed the defect,
- for goods that have been used for a building in accordance with their normal use and have caused the building to be defective,
- for any obligation of the seller to provide updates for digital products, in contracts for the delivery of goods with digital elements.
7.3 Furthermore, for entrepreneurs, the statutory limitation periods for any existing legal recourse claim remain unaffected.
7.4 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of § 1 HGB, he is subject to the commercial obligation to investigate and report complaints in accordance with § 377 HGB. If the customer fails to comply with the reporting obligations regulated there, the goods are deemed to have been approved.
7.5 If the customer acts as a consumer, he is asked to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this will have no impact on his legal or contractual claims for defects.

8) Applicable Law
8.1 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law only applies 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 or her habitual residence.
8.2 Furthermore, with regard to the statutory right of withdrawal, this choice of law does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole place of residence and delivery address is outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.

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 in which a consumer is involved.
9.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to take part in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.

Shipment

How is shipping to Austria possible?

We would very much like to ship to Austria, but there have been shipping policy laws in Austria since 2023 (“Packaging Ordinance”) that make it almost impossible for smaller German retailers to provide regular shipping to private end consumers there. Please only order from Austria if you have a company and be sure to include your tax number in the billing address.
Private orders must be canceled by us.


There are three ALTERNATIVE options for your order from AT :

1. If you are German, Swiss or Italian
If you specify the delivery address (despite the billing address being in AT), we can go there
to ship!
2. You can still have delivery to AT via the shipping service Logoix or oesterreichpaket with a postage surcharge. Many customers from AT have already tested it successfully.
3. If you are ordering for a company, we can ship to you via B2B. Please enter your company address and tax number.

Is shipping to other countries possible?

We even ship worldwide (please note the special regulations for Austria , see point above). The shipping costs are adjusted according to the shipping destination. The buyer is responsible for any customs fees abroad.

sustainability

We respect our environment by paying attention to certain sustainability criteria when producing products. That's why we have our self-designed card decks produced exclusively in Germany. Domestic production is significantly more expensive than, for example, in China, where many decks of cards are produced. However, we do not want to leave a footprint for the environment during production and instead leave a footprint for human working conditions.
