General Terms and Conditions (GTC)
Scope of application
The following GTCs apply to all orders made by consumers and business entities (hereinafter referred to as "client") through our online shop.
A consumer is every natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that cannot be attributed primarily to their commercial or self-employed professional activity. A business entity is a natural or legal person or a legal business partnership who or which, when entering into a legal transaction, is exercising their commercial or self-employed professional activity.
For business entities, these GTC shall also apply to all future business relationships without the need for us to refer to them again. If the business entity applies conflicting or supplementary General Terms and Conditions, their validity is hereby objected to; they only become a part of the contract if we have explicitly agreed to them.
