I. Basic provisions

  1. The following terms and conditions apply to contracts that you conclude with us via our Online Shop24 on the website Your contractual partner is G&H GmbH Rothschenk, Industriestraße 7 & 8-10, D-97239 Aub; Register court: Würzburg Local Court, register number: HRB 5676
  2. A consumer within the meaning of the following provisions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that cannot be attributed primarily to their commercial or independent professional activity.
  3. An entrepreneur is any natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who or which, when entering into a legal transaction, acts in exercise of his or its independent professional or commercial activity.

II Offer, acceptance and conclusion of contract

  1. The presentation of products and services in the online store does not constitute an offer within the meaning of § 145 ff. BGB (German Civil Code). By placing an order, the customer submits an offer directed towards the conclusion of the contract. The products and services are ordered by placing them in the shopping cart. Once the customer has made their selection, all they have to do is enter their customer details, select a payment method and place a legally binding order for the relevant products and/or services. To do this, the customer clicks on the “Submit order” button (or similar). The customer then first receives an order confirmation. However, this does not constitute an acceptance within the meaning of § 146 et seq. BGB. Contracts are only concluded with the order confirmation, which the company G&H GmbH Rothschenk sends to the customer by the usual commercial means of dispatch (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter). The invoice is also sent to the customer by e-mail. The customer agrees to this.
  2. The content of the contract is based solely on the order confirmation in text form. If the order confirmation deviates from the order, the customer shall be deemed to have given his consent unless he objects without delay.
  3. Subject to deviating individual agreements, contracts shall only be concluded on the basis of these terms and conditions. Any terms and conditions to the contrary are hereby contradicted.

III Prices, shipping costs and payment

  1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, our prices are ex works plus VAT at the applicable statutory rate. For consumers, the prices stated on the product pages ( net or gross according to the corresponding default setting) are shown in a different manner with statutory VAT and other price components. The shipping costs are always listed separately in the order confirmation.
  2. You can find our payment methods on the following page: If you use an instant payment system (e.g. PayPal, giropay, …) as a payment method, you will either be taken to the order overview page in our online store or redirected to the website of the provider of the instant payment system.
    If you are redirected to the respective instant payment system, make the appropriate selection or enter your data there. Finally, the order data will be displayed as an order overview on the website of the provider of the instant payment system or after you have been redirected back to our online store.
  3. Payment is also possible in advance or conditionally on account. We will give you our bank details in the order confirmation and deliver the goods after receipt of payment in the case of advance payment. In the case of purchase on account, the invoice amounts are to be paid net without deductions within 14 days of receipt of the goods. For larger amounts, first orders or new customers, we reserve the right to change the payment method at any time, e.g. advance payment.
  4. After expiry of a payment deadline, the customer shall be in default of payment. If the customer is in arrears with payments to us, all existing claims shall become due immediately. During the delay the customer has to pay the monetary debt at the rate of 9% above the prime rate according to §248 para. 2 BGB (German Civil Code). We reserve the right to claim higher damages for delay. If the customer is in default of payment, we shall not be obliged to make any further deliveries under any contract until the invoice amounts due, including interest on arrears, have been settled and we shall be entitled, at our discretion, to withdraw from any contracts concluded or to claim damages in lieu of performance if the customer has not made payment within 10 days of receipt of a justified reminder.
  5. Offsetting against counterclaims is only permissible if these are recognized by us in writing or have been legally established. The customer shall not be entitled to assign its claims in kind or to have them collected by third parties without our prior written consent, which may not be unreasonably withheld. For monetary receivables, §354 a HGB applies. We are entitled to assign all claims arising from our business relationship to third parties.

IV. Right of withdrawal

In the event that a contract is concluded with a consumer within the meaning of § 13 BGB, the following cancellation policy shall apply.

The deadline is met if you send the goods before the deadline of fourteen days. You bear the direct costs of returning the goods.

  3. The customer is entitled to resell the reserved goods in the normal course of business. The customer hereby assigns to us the claims of the purchaser arising from the resale of the goods subject to retention of title in the amount of the final invoice amount agreed with us (including value added tax). We accept this assignment. The customer shall continue to be entitled to collect these claims after the assignment. However, we reserve the right to collect the claims in question ourselves as soon as the customer fails to properly meet his payment obligations and falls into arrears.
  4. If the goods are inseparably mixed with items that do not belong to G&H GmbH Rothschenk, G&H GmbH Rothschenk shall acquire co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the value of the goods to the other mixed items at the time of mixing.

Insurance shall only be taken out on the instruction of the customer, in the customer’s name and at the customer’s expense.
  3. If the customer is in default of acceptance, this shall be deemed equivalent to handover. Insofar as collection has been agreed, the material risk shall pass to the customer upon notification that the goods are ready for collection.

If a characteristic of the goods deviates from the objective requirements, the deviation shall only be deemed to have been agreed if you were informed of the same by us before submitting the contractual declaration and the deviation was expressly and separately agreed between the contracting parties.

a ) Only our own specifications and the manufacturer’s product description shall be deemed agreed as the quality of the goods, but not other advertising, public promotions and statements by the manufacturer.

If the rectification of defects fails, you can demand a reduction in price or withdraw from the contract at your discretion.

In the event of rectification of defects, we shall not have to bear the increased costs incurred by moving the goods to a location other than the place of performance, provided that the move does not correspond to the intended use of the goods.
c) The warranty period is one year from delivery of the goods.
The shortened deadline does not apply:
– for culpably caused damage attributable to us arising from injury to life, limb or health and for other damage caused intentionally or through gross negligence;

– for items that have been used for a building in accordance with their normal use and have caused its defectiveness;
– in the case of statutory recourse claims that you have against us in connection with warranty rights.

XI. Choice of law, place of performance, place of jurisdiction

  2. The place of performance for all services arising from the business relationship with us and the place of jurisdiction is our registered office, provided that you are not a consumer but a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law.

Upon request, this data together with these GTC will be sent to the customer by e-mail. We are exempt from any further information obligations.
  3. Should individual provisions of these terms and conditions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The contracting parties undertake to replace the invalid obligation with a provision that comes as close as possible to the intended result and that the parties would have agreed upon if they had known about the invalidity of the provision in question.
