Offer and conclusion of contract
Our offers are subject to change and non-binding.
- The presentation and advertising of articles via our online store or other digital channels does not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract.
- by sending an order via our online store by clicking the button “order subject to payment” you place a legally binding order. You are bound to the order for a period of 2 weeks after placing the order; your possible right to revoke your order remains unaffected by this.

- a contract is only concluded when we accept your order by a declaration of acceptance or by delivery of the ordered items.

In this case, a contract is not concluded. We will inform you of this immediately and refund any consideration already received without delay.
Documents handed over
We reserve the right of ownership and copyright to all documents handed over to the customer in connection with the placing of the order, e.g. calculations, drawings, etc. These documents may not be made accessible to third parties.

In all other cases, our liability shall be excluded subject to the provision in paragraph 3.
(3) Our liability for damages arising from injury to life, body or health and under the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected by the above limitations and exclusions of liability.”
