1. Scope of Application
1.1 The following general terms and conditions apply to all contract conclusions via this online shop between the Bavarian Caps GmbH on one side and consumers and business owners (customers) on the other side. Deviating terms and conditions shall not apply without written consent of the Bavarian Caps GmbH.
1.2 A consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction with an objective, which can be attributed neither to his or her commercial activities nor self-employed professional activity. An entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership that in concluding a legal transaction is acting in the execution of its commercial or self-employed professional activity. A legal partnership is a partnership that is equipped with the ability to acquire rights and incur liabilities.
1.3 Contracts with the customer shall be concluded solely in German or English Language, depending on whether the customer submits the order on the German or English version of the webshop. Therefore, if the order is made on our German website, exclusively the German version of these General Terms and Conditions shall be relevant. If the order is made on our English website, exclusively the English version of these General Terms and Conditions shall be relevant.
2. Explanation of the Ordering Process, Meaning of Ordering for the Customer
2.1 The offer of our online shop is in itself not an offer to conclude a contract. All goods are displayed without obligation. Rather, it is an invitation to the customer to make an offer. The customer can make a legally binding offer to conclude a purchase contract (order) by the online shop cart system.
2.2 When ordering at our online store, the ordering process includes a total of four steps until the legally binding order - depending on the method of payment.
2.2.1 Step 1: The customer selects the desired goods and stores them in the cart. Using the navigation link "Shopping Cart", the customer can view and edit his current cart.
2.2.2 Step 2: Using the navigation link "Checkout", the customer can specify his client data, including billing address and, if necessary, a different delivery address, and select payment and shipping conditions. For this purpose, the customer can use already registered login data, register as new customer or order as guest.
2.2.3 Step 3: Thereupon all information provided by the customer as well as selected delivery and shipping conditions will be displayed correctable at any time for review. If the customer wants to use "PayPal-Express", he has to select PayPal as method of payment at "Shipping & Payment". If he clicks "Order with costs" at "Confirmation", he is directed to the external PayPal-Service that is integrated in the online shop. Once the customer has signed up under the conditions of PayPal, his client and invoice data being ready at PayPal will be visualized. After the payment transaction has been carried out at PayPal, the customer is redirected to the online shop. Until then, the ordering process can be canceled at any time. If the customer wants to use "Prepayment / Transfer", our bank details for the transfer of the invoice amount will be sent by e-mail. The ordering process can be canceled at any time up to this point.
2.2.4 Step 4: By clicking on "Order with costs" the customer can send a legally binding offer.
3. Conclusion of Contract
3.1 By ordering, the customer submits a binding offer to us for conclusion of a contract. The customer is bound by this order for three days. During this time we check his offer and our delivery capability.
3.2 We can accept this offer by sending an order confirmation to the customer via e-mail or by delivering the ordered goods ordered. Two steps have to be distinguished:
3.2.1 First, the customer receives a receipt confirmation of his order by e-mail to his specified e-mail address (automated arrival notice). This notice does not constitute the acceptance of the customer's offer.
3.2.2 A purchase contract is only concluded with the dispatch of our order confirmation by e-mail to the customer or with the delivery of the ordered goods.
3.3 If the customer doesn't receive an order confirmation within three days, he is no longer bound by his offer. An order confirmation after this period constitutes a new offer to the customer by us, which the customer then can accept by payment or otherwise implied.
3.4 The customer has to ensure that his specified e-mail address is suited to process the contractual partnership, e.g., in order to meet any deadlines. In particular, it is pointed out to check the spam regulation.
4. Gift Vouchers
4.1   Gift vouchers can be bought at the webshop. You receive the voucher-code analogously to a goods order via email.
4.2   You can only buy products from our webshop with your voucher. You cannot buy another voucher with your voucher. If your voucher deposit is not sufficient for the purchase, you can pay the remaining balance  with the modes of payment offered at the webshop.
4.3   Gift vouchers can only be used before the completion of the ordering process. Your voucher deposit cannot be payed out. Voucher deposits do not bear interest. The voucher deposit can be checked and redeemed at the webshop.
5. Storage of Contract Text
5.1 After the completion of an order, the contract text will be stored by us and sent to the customer with the valid terms and conditions at the time of the bidding in writing (mail / letter / fax) in the automated arrival notice of his order as well as in the order confirmation. The customer can save the contract data electronically before sending the order and print it by clicking "Print" in step 4 of the order.
5.2 After completing the ordering process however, the customer can no longer retrieve the contract text of his order at the online shop.
6. Reservation of Proprietary Rights and Right of Retention

A distinction is made between consumers (A.) and businesses (B.)

A. Consumer

1. We reserve title to the goods delivered by us until the purchase price (including VAT and shipping costs) for the goods in question has been paid in full.

2. The consumer is not entitled to resell the goods delivered by us which are subject to retention of title without our prior written consent. In the event of a possible resale, the consumer hereby assigns to us the claims from the resale up to the amount of the purchase price to be paid to us plus a surcharge of 20%. We hereby authorise the consumer to collect the claims assigned in this way in the normal course of business, whereby we may revoke this authorisation at any time in the event of default of payment by the customer.



B. Business

3. The following agreed retention of title serves as security for all existing current and future claims of the seller against the purchaser arising from the supply relationship between the contractual partners regarding goods directly purchased from Bavarian Caps GmbH (including balance claims from a current account relationship limited to this supply relationship).

4. The goods delivered by the seller to the buyer remain the property of the seller until full payment of all secured claims. The goods as well as the goods covered by the reservation of title taking their place according to this clause are hereinafter called reserved goods.

5. The buyer shall store the reserved goods free of charge for the seller.

6. The buyer is entitled to sell the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business until the event of realisation (paragraph 8). Pledges and transfers by way of security are not permitted.

7. In the event of resale of the reserved goods, the purchaser hereby assigns to the seller by way of security the resulting claim against the purchaser. The same applies to other claims that take the place of the reserved goods or otherwise arise with regard to the reserved goods, such as insurance claims or claims in tort for loss or destruction. The seller revocably authorises the buyer to collect the claims assigned to the seller in his own name. The seller may only revoke this direct debit authorisation in the event of realisation.

8. If third parties seize the reserved goods, in particular by attachment, the buyer shall immediately inform them of the seller's ownership and inform the seller thereof in order to enable him to enforce his ownership rights. If the third party is not in a position to reimburse the seller for the judicial or extrajudicial costs incurred in this connection, the buyer shall be liable to the Seller for this.

9. The seller will release the reserved goods as well as the objects or claims taking their place on request and at his discretion, insofar as their value exceeds the amount of the secured claims by more than 50%.

10. If the seller withdraws from the contract in the event of breach of contract by the buyer - in particular default of payment - the seller is entitled to demand return of the reserved goods.

7. Prices, Shipping Costs, Revocation
7.1 All prices are final prices, they include VAT. The customer has to bear customs duties and similar taxes. Dealer prices do not apply to private use, but merely for the resale.
7.2 Shipping costs are as followed:
7.2.1 within Germany we will bear the shipping costs from 15€.
7.2.2 within Europe unless specified differently during the ordering process: shipping only on request by e-mail to Conditions will then be negotiated.
7.2.3 other foreign countries: see section 7.2.2.
7.3 The customer bears the return costs upon revocation, regardless of the value of goods. We point to our revocation instruction and model revocation form that can be found in paragraph 4, in the attachment of the order confirmation and in the lower navigation bar in our webshop.
7.4 In accordance with Art 312 g II 1 no. 9 BGB the right of revocation does not apply to services provided in areas of recreational activities, as tickets for events. All orders are binding and commit the customer to purchase. Otherwise, § 312 g II also applies.
7.5 Any customer who is a consumer shall be entitled to revoke the offer and return the product in accordance with the cancellation and return policy. Revocation instruction and model revocation form:

We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.
