1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of encuma Handels GmbH (hereinafter "seller") apply to all contracts that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with the seller with regard to the goods presented by the seller in his online shop and / or completes services. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these terms and conditions is any natural person for whom the legal transaction is not part of their business. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership for whom the legal transaction is part of the operation of their company.
2) Conclusion of the 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 using the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods and / or services in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer for the goods and / or services contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process . The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by phone or email.
2.3 Immediately after placing the order, the customer receives an automated confirmation of receipt of the order from the seller. This is not an acceptance of the offer. 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 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 asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. 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 The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the sending of the offer.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after submitting his order, along with these terms and conditions. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected customer account by entering the corresponding login data, provided that the customer has created a customer account in the seller's online shop before submitting his order.
2.6 Before the binding submission of 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 for better recognition of input errors can be the browser's enlargement function, which is used to enlarge the display on the screen. The customer can correct his entries as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the “order for a fee” button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 The order processing and contact are usually carried out by email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address given by him to process the order is correct, so that the e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or 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 cancellation can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.

5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods takes place on the dispatch route 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, when choosing the PayPal payment method, the delivery address stored by the customer at PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.
5.2 If the transport company sends the goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller announced the service a reasonable time in advance would have. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the shipping costs if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer exercises his right of withdrawal, the provisions made in the seller’s cancellation policy apply.
5.3 In the case of self-collection, the seller first informs the customer by email that the goods he has ordered are ready for collection. After receiving this e-mail, the customer can pick up the goods at the seller's headquarters after consultation with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
6) Retention of title
If the seller makes an advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed and all associated costs and expenses have been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory warranty regulations apply.
7.2 The customer 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, this has no effect on his legal or contractual warranty claims.
8) Redemption of campaign vouchers
