1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of American Supps Deutschland GmbH (hereinafter "seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with the seller with regard to the seller closes the goods displayed in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These terms and conditions apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of digital content, unless otherwise expressly stipulated.
1.3 These terms and conditions apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless expressly stipulated otherwise.
1.4 A consumer within the meaning of these terms and conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor their independent professional activity. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, is exercising their commercial or independent professional activity.
1.5 Digital content within the meaning of these terms and conditions is all data that is not on a physical data carrier that is produced in digital form and made available by the seller with the granting of certain rights of use regulated more precisely in these terms and conditions.
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 in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer for the goods in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by telephone, email, post or online contact form.
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 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 time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. 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. 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 the payment method "Amazon Payments" is selected, the payment will be processed by the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe sca, 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "Amazon"), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe user agreement, available at https://payments.amazon.de/help/201751590. If the customer selects “Amazon Payments” as the payment method during the online ordering process, he also issues a payment order to Amazon by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the order process.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text will be 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 his order has been sent. Any further provision of the contract text by the seller does not take place. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before submitting his order
the order data is archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before placing a binding order using 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 enlargement function of the browser, with the help of which the representation on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 German and English are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contact are usually made by email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for processing the order is correct so that the e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address.
