This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies regarding your use of this website will be generally transmitted to a Google server in the U.S., where the information will be stored. Due to the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address is first shortened by Google and therefore anonymised. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the U.S., where it is shortened. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to analyse your use of the website, to create reports about website activities and to provide additional services related to the use of the website and the Internet for the website operator. Google does not combine the IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies using appropriate settings of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie pertaining to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en This website also uses the online advertising programme “Google AdWords” and the conversion tracking related to it. A conversion can, for instance, be a purchase, a login, a webpage view or a query. Google has developed a tool to measure these conversions and, ultimately, the effectiveness of AdWords advertisements. The cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer or mobile device if you click on an advertisement placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit particular pages of this website and the cookie hasn’t expired yet, we, along with Google, can see that you have clicked on the advertisement and that you have been transferred to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked using the AdWords customer websites. Information obtained using conversion cookies help in creating conversion statistics for AdWords customers that have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users that clicked on their advertisement and were transferred to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. However, they don’t receive any information that can be used to personally identify a user. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can easily deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookies using your Internet browser user settings. Then you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. On these webpages, plugins from the social network facebook.com are used which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). When you call up one of our webpages containing such a plugin, a connection is established with the Facebook servers, which then sends a message to your Internet browser to display the plugin on that webpage. This informs the Facebook server about the webpages you have visited. If you are logged into Facebook as a member at this time, Facebook links this information to your personal Facebook user account. Using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking “Like” button, entering a comment), this information is also linked to your Facebook account, something you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin. More details about Facebook’s collection and use of data, your related rights, and options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection policy.
13. CHOICE OF LAW, LEGAL VALIDITY
German law shall apply, excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Should one or more provisions be invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected.
14. PAYMENT METHODS
(1) Purchase on account
In the case of purchase on account, the invoice amount is due for payment to our external partner Billpay GmbH on the calendar date stated in the invoice (20 or 30 calendar days after the invoice date). The payment type ‘purchase on account’ is not available for all offers and subject to a successful credit check by Billpay GmbH. When a customer is authorised to use purchase on account for certain offers after a credit check is done, the payment is processed in collaboration with Billpay GmbH, to whom we assign our payment claim. In this case, the customer can make payments with the effect of discharging his obligations only to Billpay GmbH. Even with purchase on account through Billpay, we remain responsible for general customer queries (for example about goods, delivery time, shipping), returns, complaints, revocation notices and mailings or credits. The general terms and conditions of Billpay GmbH apply.
(2) Purchase with direct debit; direct debit authorisation; processing fee for return debit notes
(a) When purchasing with direct debit, the payment amount is immediately collected by our external partner Billpay GmbH as payment from the current account at the financial institution entered during the ordering process (current account). With this, you give Billpay GmbH the revocable authorisation to collect the payment due from you for your purchase through direct debit from your current account. If the current account does not have sufficient funds, the financial institution holding the account is under no obligation to honour the payment. Partial payments are not possible with direct debits.
(b) The payment type ‘purchase with direct debit’ is not available for all offers and subject to a successful credit check by Billpay GmbH as well as a current account kept in Germany. When a customer is authorised to use purchase with direct debit for certain offers after a credit check is done, the payment is processed in collaboration with Billpay GmbH, to whom we assign our payment claim. In this case, the customer can make payments with the effect of discharging his obligations only to Billpay GmbH. Even with purchase with direct debit through Billpay, we remain responsible for general customer queries (for example about goods, delivery time, shipping), returns, complaints, revocation notices and mailings or credits. The general terms and conditions of Billpay GmbH apply.
(c) By entering your current account information, you confirm that you are authorised to make direct debit withdrawals from the corresponding current account and that you will ensure sufficient funds. Return debit notes are associated with high costs and effort for us and Billpay GmbH. In the case of a return debit note (due to insufficient funds in current account, termination of the current account or unauthorised objection from account holder), you authorise Billpay to collect the direct debit amount for the outstanding payment due once again. In such a case, you are obligated to pay a processing fee of EUR 12.00 for each return debit note. Further claims are reserved. You are granted the option to provide proof that lower or no costs were incurred because of the return debit note. Due to the effort and costs incurred for return debit notes and to avoid processing fees, we request you not to object to the direct debit in the case of a revocation or cancellation of the purchase contract, a return or complaint. In such cases, payment is rescinded in consultation with us through a return remittance of the corresponding amount or through a credit note.
