1) Scope of application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of the company Spiegler Bremstechnik GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Seller") shall apply to all contracts concluded between a consumer or a trader (hereinafter referred to as "Client") and the Seller relating to all goods and/or services presented in the Seller's online store. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby rejected, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly outside their trade, business or profession. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these GTC 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 store do not constitute binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the seller's online store. After placing the selected goods 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 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, fax, e-mail, post or online contact form.
2.3 The seller may 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 e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive in this respect, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive in this respect, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after the order has been placed.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer 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 shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.4 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller after the contract is concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) after the customer's order has been sent. The seller will not make the text of the contract available beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online store before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by entering the corresponding login data.
2.5 Before submitting a binding order via the seller's online order form, the customer can recognize possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means of better recognizing input errors can be the browser's magnification function, which enlarges the display on the screen. Customers can correct their entries during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until they click on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 Order processing and contact are generally carried out by 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 by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
3) Right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's withdrawal policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
Exclusion or premature expiration of the right of withdrawal
The right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts for the delivery of goods that are not prefabricated and for the manufacture of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly tailored to the personal needs of the consumer.
The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
Note on revocation for production items

We exclude these articles from revocation in accordance with the applicable law and refer to § 312g para. 2 BGB
In the event of an incorrect order, we offer you a goodwill return in return for compensation of €40 per Stahlflex kit. Unannounced returns are automatically debited with €40 compensation when the credit note is issued.

We are sure to find the optimum solution for you.
- Each Stahlflex kit is an individual production. Due to the many possible combinations of line colors and fittings/connections etc., there are no stocked finished products.
- Each steel flex kit consists of many different individual parts, which are individually assembled and assembled in our production facility in Breisach after being ordered. The steel flex kits are then checked once again and, after successful testing, packed and sent to you.
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 VAT. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, further costs may be incurred in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds 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 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online store.
4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed a later due date.
4.6 If the "SOFORT" payment method is selected, payment is processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (hereinafter referred to as "SOFORT"). In order to be able to pay the invoice amount via "SOFORT", the customer must have an online banking account with PIN/TAN procedure activated for participation in "SOFORT", legitimize himself accordingly during the payment process and confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT". The payment transaction will then be carried out immediately by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account will be debited. The customer can find more information on the "SOFORT" payment method on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.
4.7 If the SEPA direct debit payment method is selected, the invoice amount is due for payment after a SEPA direct debit mandate has been issued, but not before the deadline for the advance information has expired. The direct debit will be collected when the ordered goods leave the seller's warehouse, but not before the deadline for the pre-notification has expired. Pre-notification is any communication (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) from the seller to the customer announcing a debit by SEPA direct debit. If the direct debit is not honored due to insufficient funds in the account or due to the provision of incorrect bank details, or if the customer objects to the debit although he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the fees incurred by the respective credit institution as a result of the chargeback if he is responsible for this.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 Unless otherwise agreed, the goods shall be shipped to the delivery address specified by the customer. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the seller's order processing is decisive. Notwithstanding this, if the payment method PayPal is selected, the delivery address provided by the customer to PayPal at the time of payment shall be decisive.
5.2 If the transport company returns the shipped goods to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer shall bear 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 had given him reasonable advance notice of the service. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. If the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal, the provision in the seller's withdrawal policy shall apply to the return costs.
5.3 In the case of self-collection, the seller first informs the customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by him are ready for collection. After receiving this e-mail, the customer can collect the goods from the seller's premises by arrangement with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
6) Retention of title
If the seller makes advance payment, he shall retain title to the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of statutory liability for defects shall apply.
7.2 The customer is requested to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer fails to do so, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to specific customer specifications
8.1 If, according to the content of the contract, the seller owes not only the delivery of goods but also the processing of the goods according to certain specifications of the customer, the customer must provide the operator with all content required for processing, such as texts, images or graphics in the file formats, formatting, image and file sizes specified by the operator and grant him the necessary rights of use. The customer is solely responsible for the procurement and acquisition of rights to this content. The customer declares and assumes responsibility that he has the right to use the content provided to the seller. In particular, he shall ensure that no third-party rights are infringed, especially copyrights, trademark rights and personal rights.
8.2 The customer shall indemnify the seller against claims by third parties which they may assert against the seller in connection with an infringement of their rights through the contractual use of the customer's content by the seller. The customer shall also assume the reasonable costs of the necessary legal defense, including all court and attorney's fees in the statutory amount. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the infringement. In the event of a claim by a third party, the customer is obliged to provide the seller immediately, truthfully and completely with all information necessary for the examination of the claims and a defense.
8.3 The seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the customer violates legal or official prohibitions or offends common decency. This applies in particular to the provision of anti-constitutional, racist, xenophobic, discriminatory, offensive, youth-endangering and/or violence-glorifying content.
9) Redemption of promotional vouchers
9.1 Vouchers that are issued free of charge by the seller as part of promotional campaigns with a specific period of validity and that cannot be purchased by the customer (hereinafter "promotional vouchers") can only be redeemed in the seller's online store and only during the specified period.
9.2 Promotional vouchers can only be redeemed by consumers.
9.3 Individual products may be excluded from the voucher promotion if a corresponding restriction results from the content of the promotional voucher.
9.4 Promotional vouchers can only be redeemed before completing the order process. Subsequent offsetting is not possible.
9.5 Only one promotional voucher can be redeemed per order.
9.6 The value of the goods must be at least equal to the amount of the promotional voucher. Any remaining credit will not be refunded by the seller.
9.7 If the value of the promotional voucher is not sufficient to cover the order, one of the other payment methods offered by the seller can be selected to settle the difference.
9.8 The balance of a promotional voucher is neither paid out in cash nor does it bear interest.
9.9 The promotional voucher will not be refunded if the customer returns the goods paid for in full or in part with the promotional voucher within the scope of their statutory right of withdrawal.
9.10 The promotional voucher is transferable. The seller can make payment with discharging effect to the respective holder who redeems the promotional voucher in the seller's online store. This does not apply if the seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the non-authorization, legal incapacity or lack of power of representation of the respective holder.
10) Applicable law
10.1 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties to the exclusion of the laws on the international sale of goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
10.2 Furthermore, this choice of law with regard to the statutory right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
11) Place of jurisdiction
If the customer acts as a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law with its registered office in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract shall be the registered office of the seller. If the customer is domiciled outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller's place of business shall be the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract if the contract or claims arising from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. In the above cases, however, the seller is in any case entitled to appeal to the court at the customer's place of business.
12) Alternative dispute resolution
12.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at 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.
12.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration board.
