1) Scope of application

1.1 Diese Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen (nachfolgend "AGB") des Stefan Hefele, handelnd unter "Stefan Hefele Fotografie" (nachfolgend "Verkäufer"), gelten für alle Verträge zur Lieferung von Waren, die ein Verbraucher oder Unternehmer (nachfolgend „Kunde“) mit dem Verkäufer hinsichtlich der vom Verkäufer in seinem Online-Shop dargestellten Waren abschließt. Hiermit wird der Einbeziehung von eigenen Bedingungen des Kunden widersprochen, es sei denn, es ist etwas anderes vereinbart.

1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.

1.3 An entrepreneur within the meaning of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his commercial or independent professional activity.

2) Conclusion of contract

2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop of the seller 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 via the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. In doing so, after placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.

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), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
  • by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
  • by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed the order.

If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract shall be concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for the acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the sending of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry 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 shall be deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.

2.4 Bei Auswahl einer von PayPal angebotenen Zahlungsart erfolgt die Zahlungsabwicklung über den Zahlungsdienstleister PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxemburg (im Folgenden: „PayPal“), unter Geltung der PayPal-Nutzungsbedingungen, einsehbar unter https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the terms and conditions for payments without a PayPal account, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. Zahlt der Kunde mittels einer im Online-Bestellvorgang auswählbaren von PayPal angebotenen Zahlungsart, erklärt der Verkäufer schon jetzt die Annahme des Angebots des Kunden in dem Zeitpunkt, in dem der Kunde den Button anklickt, welcher den Bestellvorgang abschließt.

2.5 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data will be 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 Vor verbindlicher Abgabe der Bestellung über das Online-Bestellformular des Verkäufers kann der Kunde mögliche Eingabefehler durch aufmerksames Lesen der auf dem Bildschirm dargestellten Informationen erkennen. Ein wirksames technisches Mittel zur besseren Erkennung von Eingabefehlern kann dabei die Vergrößerungsfunktion des Browsers sein, mit deren Hilfe die Darstellung auf dem Bildschirm vergrößert wird. Seine Eingaben kann der Kunde im Rahmen des elektronischen Bestellprozesses so lange über die üblichen Tastatur- und Mausfunktionen korrigieren, bis er den Button anklickt, welcher den Bestellvorgang abschließt.

2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.

2.8 Order processing and contacting usually take place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct, so that 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 by third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.

3) Right of withdrawal

3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.

3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.

4) Prices and terms of payment

4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.

4.2 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the online shop of the seller.

5) Delivery and shipping conditions

5.1 If the Seller offers to ship the goods, delivery shall be made within the delivery area specified by the Seller 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 shall be decisive.

5.2 If the delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller as a result. This does not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of revocation. In the event of an effective exercise of the right of revocation by the Customer, the provision made in the Seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the costs of returning the goods.

5.3 If the customer is acting as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall pass to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment. If the customer is acting as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall in principle only pass to the customer or a person authorised to receive the goods when the goods are handed over to the customer. In deviation from this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall also pass to the customer in the case of consumers as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment if the customer commissions the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.

5.4 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper self-delivery. This shall only apply in the event that the Seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and the Seller has concluded a specific covering transaction with the supplier with due diligence. The Seller shall make all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the event of non-availability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded without delay.

5.5 Self collection is not possible for logistical reasons.

6) Retention of title

If the seller makes advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.

7) Liability for defects (warranty)

7.1 Unless otherwise stipulated in the following provisions, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply. In deviation from this, the following applies to contracts for the delivery of goods:

7.2 If the client is acting as an entrepreneur,

  • the seller has the choice of the type of supplementary performance;
  • in the case of new goods, the limitation period for defects shall be one year from delivery of the goods;
  • the rights and claims due to defects are excluded in the case of used goods;
  • the limitation period shall not recommence if a replacement delivery is made within the scope of liability for defects.

7.3 The above-mentioned limitations of liability and shortening of deadlines do not apply to

  • for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer,
  • in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect,
  • for goods which have been used for a building in accordance with their customary use and have caused its defectiveness,
  • for any existing obligation of the seller to provide updates for digital products, in the case of contracts for the supply of goods with digital elements.

7.4 Furthermore, for entrepreneurs, the statutory limitation periods for any statutory right of recourse shall remain unaffected.

7.5 Handelt der Kunde als Kaufmann i.S.d. § 1 HGB, trifft ihn die kaufmännische Untersuchungs- und Rügepflicht gemäß § 377 HGB. Unterlässt der Kunde die dort geregelten Anzeigepflichten, gilt die Ware als genehmigt.

7.6 If the customer is acting as a consumer, he is requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the deliverer and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this has no effect on his legal or contractual claims for defects.

8) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to certain specifications of the customer

8.1 If, according to the content of the contract, in addition to the delivery of the goods, the Seller is also obliged to process the goods according to certain specifications of the Customer, the Customer shall provide the Seller with all content required for the processing, such as texts, images or graphics in the file formats, formatting, image and file sizes specified by the Seller and grant the Seller the necessary rights of use for this purpose. The customer alone is responsible for the procurement and acquisition of rights to this content. The customer declares and assumes responsibility that he has the right to use the content provided to the seller. In particular, he shall ensure that no rights of third parties are infringed thereby, in particular copyrights, trademark rights and personal rights.

8.2 The customer shall indemnify the seller against claims of third parties which the latter may assert against the seller in connection with an infringement of their rights through the contractual use of the customer's content by the seller. In this context, the customer shall also assume the necessary costs of legal defence, including all court costs and lawyers' fees in the statutory amount. This shall not apply if the customer is not responsible for the infringement. In the event of a claim by a third party, the customer is obliged to provide the seller immediately, truthfully and completely with all information required for the examination of the claims and a defence.

8.3 The Seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the Customer for this purpose violates legal or official prohibitions or offends common decency. This applies in particular to the provision of anti-constitutional, racist, xenophobic, discriminatory, offensive, youth-endangering and/or violence-glorifying content.

9) Applicable law

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties to the exclusion of the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.

10) Alternative dispute resolution

10.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the internet at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts involving a consumer.

10.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
