1) Scope

1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Firsties GmbH (hereinafter "seller") apply to all contracts that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") concludes with the seller with regard to the goods presented by the seller in his online shop and /or completes services. 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 concludes a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.

1.3 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 and/or services 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 and/or services 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 telephone, e-mail or post.

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 email), 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 when 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 deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.

2.4 If you select a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "PayPal"), subject to the PayPal Terms of Use, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/of/webapps/mpp/ do/useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the conditions for payments without a PayPal account, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/of/webapps/mpp/ do/privacywax-full. If the customer pays using a payment method offered by PayPal that can be selected in the online ordering process, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer clicks on the button that completes the ordering process.

2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) together with these General Terms and Conditions after the order has been sent. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the seller's website and can be called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected customer account by entering the relevant login data, provided that the customer has created a customer account in the seller's online shop before sending his order.

2.6 Before submitting the 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 as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that completes the ordering process.

2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.

2.8 The order processing and contact usually takes 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 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 In principle, consumers are entitled to a right of withdrawal.

3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.

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 must 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 Various payment options are available to the customer, which are specified in the seller's online shop right at the beginning of the ordering process.

4.4 If payment in advance has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract.

4.5 If you select the "SOFORT" payment method, the payment will be processed by the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (hereinafter "SOFORT"). In order to be able to pay the invoice amount via "SOFORT", the customer must have an activated online banking account for participation in "SOFORT", identify himself accordingly during the payment process and confirm the payment order to "SOFORT". The payment transaction is carried out immediately afterwards by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account is debited. The customer can find more detailed information on the “SOFORT” payment method on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/instantly/ recall.

4.6 If you select the credit card payment method via Stripe, the invoice amount is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract. Payment is processed by the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: "Stripe"). Stripe reserves the right to carry out a credit check and to reject this payment method if the credit check is negative.

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.

5.2 If the transport company sends the shipped goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller announced the service to him a reasonable time in advance would have. Furthermore, 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 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.

6) Retention of title

If the seller makes an advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed and all associated costs and expenses have been paid in full.

7) Liability for Defects (Warranty)

7.1 Unless otherwise stated in the following regulations, the statutory liability for defects shall apply. Deviating from this, the following applies to contracts for the delivery of goods:

7.2 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur,

  • the seller has the choice of the type of supplementary performance;
  • in the case of new goods, the limitation period for defects is one year from delivery of the goods;
  • in the case of used goods, the rights and claims due to defects are excluded;
  • the statute of limitations does not begin again if a replacement delivery is made as part of the liability for defects.

7.3 The limitations of liability and shortening of deadlines set out above do not apply

  • for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer,
  • in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect,
  • for goods that have been used for a building in accordance with their usual purpose and have caused its defectiveness,
  • for any existing obligation of the seller to provide updates for digital products, in the case of contracts for the delivery of goods with digital elements.

7.4 In addition, it applies to entrepreneurs that the statutory limitation periods for any existing statutory right of recourse remain unaffected.

7.5 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) Governing Law

8.1 If the customer acts as an entrepreneur within the meaning of Section 1.2, the law of the state in which the seller has its place of business shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods and the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this Contract is the place of business of the seller.

8.2 If the customer acts as a consumer within the meaning of Section 1.2, the law of the country in which the customer has his habitual residence shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the UN Convention on the International Sale of Goods and the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes from this contract is the domicile of the customer.

9) Alternative Dispute Resolution

9.1 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.

9.2 The seller is not obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board, but is willing to do so.
