When you place an order with our Online Shop we send you an e-mail confirming receipt of the order and listing the details (order confirmation).
This order confirmation does not represent an acceptance of the proposal but merely serves to inform you that we have received your order.
A purchase contract shall only be concluded if we expressly accept the order by means of a separate order confirmation in text form, or dispatch to you the goods ordered and confirm dispatch of the order to you by means of a dispatch confirmation in the written form.

We only sell goods in quantities commensurate with household use. This also applies to the placing of several orders of the same goods, where the individual orders are for a quantity commensurate with household use.
Should we ourselves, despite having shortly before concluded a (congruent) purchase agreement, not receive timely delivery from a supplier or manufacturer of the goods you ordered, or said goods are not delivered at all, we can withdraw from the Contract if we are not responsible for the late or missing delivery and this disruption is not only temporary in nature. We will inform you immediately if the goods are unavailable. We will immediately reimburse any payments you may already have made.
Inasmuch as electronically available goods (electronic books, audio and video recordings) are the subject matter of the Contract, the above provisions shall apply. A purchase contract shall only be concluded if we expressly accept your order by means of separate order confirmation in the written form or make available to you in the written form an Internet address which is available for a limited amount of time (as a rule one week) from which the ordered contents can be retrieved.
