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

§ 2 Formation of the Contract   

(1) The subject of the contract is the sale of goods and / or the provision of repair services and / or the provision of installation services.

§ 3 Individually Designed Goods                        

(1) You shall provide me with the suitable information, texts or files required for the individual design of the goods by message via the platform or by e-mail no later than immediately after conclusion of the contract. My possible specifications on file formats are to be observed. 

(2) You undertake not to transmit any data whose content infringes the rights of third parties (in particular copyrights, rights to names, trademark rights) or violates existing laws.

(3) I do not check the transmitted data for correctness of content and in this respect do not assume any liability for errors.

(4) Insofar as specified in the respective offer, you will receive a draft correction from me, which you must check immediately. If you agree with the draft, you release the proof by countersignature in text form (e.g., e-mail) for execution.

The design work will not be carried out without your approval. You are responsible for checking the proof for correctness and completeness and for informing me of any errors. I do not assume any liability for unclaimed errors.

(3) You are obliged to cooperate. In particular, at the time of performance of the installation services, you shall provide the opportunity to enter the premises in a walk-in and reasonably hazard-free condition. Furthermore, you are obligated to provide me with electrical power and water, if necessary. I am entitled to terminate the part of the contract concerning the provision of installation services in accordance with § 643 of the German Civil Code (BGB), insofar as you do not comply with your obligations to cooperate. For this purpose, I will set you a reasonable deadline during which you can make up for the necessary cooperation services.

(4) If you make use of your right of termination according to § 648 S. 1 BGB (German Civil Code), I may demand 10% of the agreed remuneration as a lump-sum payment if performance has not yet commenced. However, if the statutory right of cancellation exists, this shall only apply if you do not exercise your right of cancellation until after the expiry of the cancellation period. You retain the right to prove that I have actually incurred no costs or significantly lower costs.

The above limitation shall not apply

for culpably caused damages from injury to life, body or health attributable to me and for other damages caused intentionally or by gross negligence;

insofar as I have fraudulently concealed the defect or have given a guarantee for the quality of the item.

(3) As a consumer, you are requested to check the item immediately upon delivery for completeness, obvious defects and transport damage and to notify us and the carrier of any complaints as soon as possible. If you do not comply with this, this has no effect on your statutory warranty claims.
