10. Alternative Dispute Resolution
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Adrienne Plath, trading under "WHITE & BERRY Weddings" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") with the seller regarding the goods presented by the seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless something else has been agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of 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 enable the customer to submit a binding offer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via 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 with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by e-mail, by post or using the 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 receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby 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 above alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the above alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer has sent the offer 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 considered a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller does not make the contract text accessible beyond this.
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 enlargement function of the browser, with the help of which the display 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 on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contact are usually made via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing 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 by third parties commissioned 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 cancellation can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.
3.3 Right of withdrawal for personalized and individualized products
The right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts for the delivery of goods that are not prefabricated and for the production of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer. It is expressly pointed out that the products delivered by WHITE & BERRY Weddings are goods that are made to customer specifications and tailored to the personal needs of the customer. According to Section 312d Paragraph 4 No. 1 BGB, the customer does not have the right to withdraw from contracts concluded in distance selling for such goods. Therefore, according to the German Civil Code, the customer has no right to withdraw from the contract concluded with WHITE & BERRY Weddings for the delivery of personalized products. Slight deviations in the properties of items compared to the descriptions and information in the order, in particular with regard to colour, weight, dimensions, design or similar features, regardless of whether it is a digital file or print file, can result from customary fluctuations, technical production processes or the natural condition of the materials result. Such deviations do not represent product defects and therefore do not justify any warranty claims by the customer. WHITE & BERRY Weddings expressly asks the customer for written approval before the product is manufactured. The customer has the opportunity to have corrections made. If the customer approves, final production begins. WHITE & BERRY Weddings assumes no liability for any errors (e.g. typographical errors).
3.4 Right of withdrawal for handmade illustrations as vector graphic files
A personalized illustration is a hand-drawn and digitized file. Every artist has their own style and drawing technique when it comes to an illustration. The BGB guidelines also apply here. WHITE & BERRY Weddings expressly asks the customer for written approval before the product is manufactured. The customer has the opportunity to have small corrections made to an illustration. If the approval is given by the customer, the final production begins, after which WHITE & BERRY Weddings assumes no liability.
3.5 Right of withdrawal for order processing without creating a design
Entrepreneurs are not granted a voluntary right of withdrawal. There is no right of withdrawal for the delivery of goods that are not prefabricated and for the production of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer.
WHITE & BERRY Weddings assumes no liability for orders exclusively for material refinements (such as printing, embossing and/or letterpress orders) with designs and graphic files that were not created by WHITE & BERRY Weddings. After receipt of the graphics files from the client, the finishing is carried out as desired without any content or optical/visual data control. Only setting measures for the respective machine for the finishing are operated. The customer is responsible and liable for the content and design of the files provided.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for money transfers by banks (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs can also be incurred in relation to the transfer of money if the delivery is not made to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.
4.3 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.
4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 Goods are delivered 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, if the payment method PayPal is selected, the delivery address stored by the customer at PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.
5.2 If 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 delivery if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. If the customer effectively exercises the right of cancellation, the regulation made in the seller's cancellation policy applies to the return costs.
5.3 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper delivery to himself. This only applies in the event that the seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and has concluded a specific hedging transaction with the supplier with due diligence. The seller will use all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the case of unavailability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded immediately.
5.4 In the case of self-collection, the seller first informs the customer by e-mail that the goods he has ordered are ready for collection. After receiving this e-mail, the customer can collect the goods at the seller's registered office after consultation with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
5.5 All prices stated on the seller's website include the applicable statutory sales tax.
5.6 In addition to the stated prices, the seller charges shipping costs for the delivery. The shipping costs will be clearly communicated to the buyer on a separate information page and as part of the ordering process.
6) Retention of title
If the seller pays in advance, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for Defects (Warranty)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the statutory liability for defects applies.
7.2 If the customer acts as a consumer, he 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 whatsoever on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to specific customer specifications
8.1 If, according to the content of the contract, the seller owes not only the delivery of goods but also the processing of the goods according to specific specifications of the customer, the customer must provide the seller with all content required for processing such as texts, images or graphics in the file formats, formatting, image specified by the seller - and file sizes and to grant him the necessary rights of use. The customer alone is responsible for obtaining and acquiring rights to this content. The customer declares and assumes responsibility for having the right to use the content provided to the seller. In particular, he ensures that no rights of third parties are violated, in particular copyrights, trademarks and personal rights.
8.2 The customer indemnifies the seller against third-party claims that they may assert against the seller in connection with a violation of their rights through the contractual use of the customer's content by the seller. The customer also assumes the reasonable costs of the necessary legal defense, including all court and attorney's fees in the statutory amount. This does 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 with all information that is necessary for the examination of the claims and a defense without delay, truthfully and completely.
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, insulting, youth-endangering and/or violence-glorifying content.
9) Governing Law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law only applies 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 under 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 in which a consumer is involved.
10.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
