Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen und Kundeninformationen der metaFox – Friedle und Weghorn GbR
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as “GTC”) of metaFox – Friedle und Weghorn GbR (hereinafter referred to as “Seller”) shall apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”) with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online shop. The inclusion of the Customer’s own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise 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 can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. 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 self-employed professional activity.
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller’s online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve for the submission of a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The Customer may 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 basket and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.3 The Seller may 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 shall be decisive, or by delivering the ordered goods to the Customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the Customer shall be 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 point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer 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 When an offer is made via the Seller’s online order form, the text of the contract is stored by the Seller and sent to the Customer in text form (e.g. by e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order together with these General Terms and Conditions. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the Seller’s website and can be accessed free of charge by the Customer via his password-protected customer account by providing the relevant login data, provided that the Customer has created a customer account in the Seller’s online shop before submitting his order.
2.5 Before submitting a binding 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 during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 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.

This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller had given the customer reasonable advance notice of the service.

9. Applicable law
All legal relations between the parties shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws on the international sale of movable goods.
