1.1 These terms and conditions of HMT Group GmbH (hereinafter “seller”) apply to all contracts that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter “customer”) concludes with the seller with regard to the goods and / or services presented by the seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer’s own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these general terms and conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose that cannot be attributed to their commercial or independent professional activity. An entrepreneur in the sense of these general terms and conditions is any natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, is exercising their independent professional or commercial activity.
2) Conclusion of the 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 submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated in the seller’s online shop. After entering his personal data, 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.
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 e-mail), whereby the customer’s receipt of the order confirmation is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the customer’s receipt of the goods is decisive, or
- by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. 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 the customer selects “PayPal Express” as the payment method during the ordering process, he also issues a payment order to his payment service provider by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, contrary to Section 2.3, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer’s offer at the point in time at which the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that completes the order process.
2.5 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.
2.6 When submitting an offer via the seller’s online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after submitting his order, along with these terms and conditions. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the seller’s website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected customer account by entering the corresponding login data, provided that the customer has created a customer account in the seller’s online shop before submitting his order.
2.7 Before the binding submission of the order via the seller’s online order form, the customer can continuously correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions. In addition, all entries are displayed again in a confirmation window before the binding submission of the order and can also be corrected there using the usual keyboard and mouse functions.
2.8 The German and French languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 Order processing and contact take place via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address given by him to process the order 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
Consumers generally have a right of withdrawal, as is the case with HMT-Group GmbH. If the goods are damaged on the way to the customer, the customer can return the goods within 5 days.
Address for returns:
In the Schoren 23
The postage for the return shipping and the costs for the goods will be reimbursed to the consumer within 7 working days.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 The Seller’s stated prices do not include VAT and other price components.
4.2 The customer has various payment options available, which are specified in the seller’s online shop.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods takes place regularly on the dispatch route and to the delivery address specified by the customer. When processing the transaction, the delivery address given in the seller’s order processing is decisive. Deviating from this, when choosing the PayPal payment method, the delivery address stored by the customer at PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.
5.2 If the transport company sends the goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs for the unsuccessful shipment.
5.3 In principle, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold remains with HMT GmbH upon dispatch of the goods or upon handover.
5.4 In the case of self-collection, the seller first informs the customer by email that the goods he has ordered are ready for collection. After receiving this email, the customer can collect the goods after consulting the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
5.5 We ship our goods with our shipping partner, the post . For bulk orders, our shipping partner is the Gafner AG .
6) Liability for defects
The statutory liability for defects applies. If the customer is an entrepreneur, the deadlines for warranty claims against the seller are shortened to one year.
The seller is liable to the customer for all contractual, contractual and legal, including tortious claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses as follows:
7.1 The seller is fully liable for any legal reason
- in the event of intent or gross negligence,
- in the event of negligent or willful injury to life, body or health,
- on the basis of a guarantee promise, unless otherwise regulated in this regard,
- due to mandatory liability such as according to the Product Liability Act.
7.2 If the seller negligently breaches an essential contractual obligation, liability is limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, unless unlimited liability is assumed in accordance with Section 6.1. Essential contractual obligations are obligations that the contract imposes on the seller according to its content in order to achieve the purpose of the contract, the fulfillment of which enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on the compliance of which the customer can regularly rely.
7.3 Otherwise liability on the part of the seller is excluded.
7.4 The above liability regulations also apply with regard to the liability of the seller for his vicarious agents and legal representatives.
8) Special conditions for the processing of goods according to certain specifications of the customer
8.1 The customer exempts the seller from claims by third parties that they can assert against the seller in connection with a violation of their rights through the contractual use of the customer’s content. The customer also assumes the reasonable costs of the necessary legal defense including all court and lawyer costs 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 immediately, truthfully and completely provide the seller with all information that is necessary for the examination of the claims and a defense.
8.2 The seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the customer for this purpose violates legal or official prohibitions or against common decency. This applies in particular to the provision of unconstitutional, racist, xenophobic, discriminatory, offensive, youth-endangering and / or violence-glorifying content.
9) Redemption of campaign vouchers
