  1. These general terms and conditions apply to every offer and all discounts and distance contracts concluded between the trader and consumer.
  2. Before the contract is concluded, the text of these general terms and conditions will be made available to the consumer. If the contract is not to be concluded on a distance basis, these general terms and conditions will be made available and/or delivered remotely prior to conclusion of the agreement. If it is not reasonably possible for the general terms and conditions to be made available by the trader for the consumer to see prior to the conclusion of the contract, they will be sent to the consumer on request as soon as possible and at no cost to the counter party.
  3. If the contract is delivered electronically, notwithstanding the preceding paragraph and before the distance contract is concluded, the text of these terms and conditions will be delivered electronically to the consumer in such a way that they can be stored in a simple manner on a durable medium, so that it will be accessible to the consumer for consultation at a later date. If this is not reasonably possible before the distance contract is concluded, it will be indicated where the general terms and conditions can be accessed electronically and that they, on the request of the consumer, will be sent free of charge by electronic means or another cost-free manner.
  4. In the event that specific product or service conditions apply in addition to these general terms and conditions, the third, fourth and fifth paragraphs shall equally apply, and in the event of conflicting terms, the consumer shall always rely on the applicable provision most favourable to him.

Article 4 – The Offer

  1. If an offer is of limited duration or subject to conditions, this will be explicitly stated in the offer.
  2. The offer includes a complete and accurate description of the products and/or services offered. The description is sufficiently detailed to allow a full and proper assessment to be made of the offer by the consumer. If the trader makes use of images, they are a true representation of the products and/or services offered. The trader is not obligated or bound by obvious mistakes or errors in the offer.
  3. Each offer must contain information that clearly states the consumer’s rights and obligations connected to acceptance of the offer.

Article 5 – The Contract

  3. If the contract is created electronically, the trader will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the electronic transfer of data and it will provide a secure web environment. If the consumer can pay electronically, the trader will take appropriate safety precautions.
  4. The trader may, within the statutory parameters, confirm the consumer is able to meet its payment obligations, as well as investigate any other facts or factors that are important to a sound conclusion of the distance contract. If the trader, on the grounds of this investigation, finds reasonable justification not to enter into the contract, it is entitled to refuse an order or request the performance of the contract to be bound to specific terms and conditions.
  5. The trader will send the following product or service information to the consumer in writing, or in such a way that it can be stored by the consumer in an accessible manner on a durable medium:
    1. the visiting address of the establishment of the trader where the consumer can lodge complaints
