A tacit acceptance of the customer's general terms and conditions by conclusive behavior by the seller is excluded. This requirement for consent applies in any case, for example even if the seller provides services to the customer without reservation and is aware of his general terms and conditions.
1.2 These GTC apply both to consumers (§ 13 BGB) and to entrepreneurs (§ 14 BGB). If the following terms and conditions do not contain a separate note, all conditions apply equally to contracts with entrepreneurs and consumers.

1.3 These conditions also apply to future contractual relationships between the customer and the seller if the customer is an entrepreneur.

2.2 In the case of a purchase via one of the marketplaces, the contract is concluded when the customer places the order.

The assignment serves to secure the relevant claim to the same extent as the retention of title according to Section 10.1. of these conditions. The customer remains authorized to collect these claims even after assignment. However, the seller is entitled to collect the claims himself if the customer does not meet his payment obligations, defaults on payment, an application is made to open insolvency proceedings or the customer stops making payments. In these cases, the seller may revoke the authorization to collect. The seller can also demand that the customer immediately informs the seller of the assigned claims and their debtors, provides the seller with a written declaration of assignment and all the information and documents required to collect the claim. This regulation does not apply to consumers.

The regulations in clause 10.4 sentence 3 et seq. apply accordingly. This regulation does not apply to consumers.
10.6 If the customer uses the non-digital goods delivered by the seller in such a way that they become part of a new thing and the seller's ownership is thereby finally lost, the seller's ownership continues with a pro rata relationship to the manufactured product. The customer hereby assigns to the seller all claims in the amount of the final invoice amount (including sales tax) of the seller's claims that accrue to him from the resale of the product against his customers or other third parties. The regulations in section 8.4 sentence 3 et seq. apply accordingly. This regulation does not apply to consumers.

This regulation does not apply to consumers.
11.3 In the case of the delivery of used goods, any rights to material defects are excluded, subject to statutory provisions and other agreements. This regulation does not apply to consumers.

A claim for the elimination of such obvious defects is excluded.
11.5 The statutory inspection and notification obligations in accordance with § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) apply to merchants in any case for deliveries by the seller. If a delivery is made directly to a consumer on behalf of an intermediary, the commercial law obligation to give notice of defects also applies without restriction. This regulation does not apply to consumers.
11.6 If the customer rejects the seller's delivery for a reason other than a significant defect that severely restricts use or makes it impossible, although the seller has declared its readiness to perform, the customer is in default of acceptance. Acceptance of the delivery may not be refused due to insignificant defects.

If the supplementary performance fails, the seller finally and seriously refuses the supplementary performance (also in accordance with § 439 Paragraph 4 BGB), if the supplementary performance is unreasonable for the customer or if a case of § 323 Paragraph 2 BGB is present, the customer can withdraw from the contract without prejudice to any claims for damages withdraw or reduce the consideration.
11.10 Claims and rights of the customer due to defects do not exist in the case of only insignificant deviations from the agreed quality, in the case of only insignificant impairment of usability, in the case of natural wear and tear or damage, insofar as these are due to incorrect or negligent handling or storage, excessive stress, unsuitable operating resources or special external influences that were not provided for in the contract. If the customer is entitled to continue to demand subsequent performance on the one hand and to assert the statutory rights to which he is entitled instead due to the failure of subsequent performance, the seller can request the customer to exercise his rights within a reasonable period of time. The customer must inform the seller of his decision in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter). The receipt of the customer's declaration by the seller is decisive for compliance with the deadline. If the customer does not exercise his rights in a timely manner, he can only assert these, in particular the right to withdraw from the contract or compensation for damages instead of performance, if another reasonable period of time for supplementary performance to be determined by him has expired without success. This regulation does not apply to consumers.
11.11 Recourse claims of the customer against the seller according to § 445a BGB only exist insofar as the customer has not made any agreements with his customer that go beyond the statutory claims for defects. This regulation does not apply to consumers.

14.2 The seller is also liable for slight negligence on the part of its organs and vicarious agents in the event of impossibility, default in performance, non-compliance with a guarantee or the violation of another essential contractual obligation. Significant contractual obligations are those whose fulfillment enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on whose compliance the contractual partner may regularly rely. In these cases, the liability of the seller is limited to such contract-typical damages that the seller could reasonably have expected when the contract was concluded.
14.3 Any liability of the seller that goes beyond the liability according to Sections 12.1 and 12.2 – for whatever legal reason – is excluded. This applies in particular to all claims due to the breach of contractual obligations and to claims based on tort, but not for those due to culpa in contrahendo.
14.4 The seller assumes no liability for any loss of data during the inspection, any necessary repair measures or other services. The customer must ensure that the data on the respective devices or data storage devices is secured and that no sensitive data is on them.
14.5 Any limitation of liability agreed with the customer also applies to the organs and vicarious agents of the seller.
14.6 Claims under the Product Liability Act remain unaffected.
15) Redeeming Promotional Vouchers
15.1 Vouchers that are issued free of charge by the seller as part of promotions with a specific period of validity and that cannot be purchased by the customer (hereinafter "promotional vouchers") can only be redeemed in the seller's online shop and only in the specified period.
15.2 Individual products can be excluded from the voucher campaign if a corresponding restriction results from the content of the campaign voucher.
15.3 Promotional vouchers can only be redeemed before completing the ordering process. Subsequent offsetting is not possible.
15.4 Only one promotional voucher can be redeemed per order.
15.5 The value of the goods must be at least the amount of the promotional voucher. Any remaining credit will not be refunded by the seller.
15.6 If the value of the promotional voucher is not sufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller can be selected to settle the difference.
15.7 The balance of a promotional voucher will neither be paid out in cash nor will interest be paid.
15.8 The campaign voucher will not be refunded if the customer returns the goods paid for in whole or in part with the campaign voucher within the scope of his statutory right of withdrawal.
15.9 The promotional voucher is transferrable. The seller can pay with discharging effect to the respective owner who redeems the promotional voucher in the seller's online shop. This does not apply if the seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the non-authorization, the legal incapacity or the lack of the right to represent the respective owner.
16) Mentioned as a reference
If the customer is an entrepreneur, he agrees to be named by the seller on the seller's website, in his social media profiles (e.g. Twitter, LinkedIn, Xing) and in his own publications, stating his company and using his brand related to this company as a reference to become. This consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future by means of a declaration to the seller.
17) Final Provisions
17.1 The contractual partner is only entitled to assign rights and claims from the contractual relationship to third parties with the prior written consent of the seller. § 354a HGB remains unaffected; § 354a HGB does not apply to consumers.
17.2 German law applies exclusively, excluding the UN sales law and the references to international private and procedural law. For consumers, this choice of law only applies to the extent that non-mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence grant broader protection.
17.3 The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from and in connection with contracts to which these GTC apply is the registered office of the seller; however, the seller is entitled to sue the customer at any legally permitted place of jurisdiction. This regulation does not apply to consumers.
17.4 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. The seller is not obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board, but is generally willing to do so. However, this does not affect the other provisions of this Section 17.
