1. Scope

1.1. These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of "Main Elektroservice GmbH" (hereinafter "seller") apply to all contracts that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with the seller about the seller in his Online shop completes the goods offered. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.

1.2. A consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose that can predominantly neither be attributed to their commercial nor their independent professional activity.

1.3. An entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

2. Conclusion of the contract

2.1. The presentation of the goods, especially in the online shop, does not yet constitute a binding offer by the seller.

2.2. First, the customer places the selected goods in the shopping cart. In the next step, the ordering process begins, in which all data required for order processing are recorded.
At the end of the ordering process, a summary of the order and contract data appears.

- Sending a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or email) 
or
- Request for payment to the customer after placing the order 
or
- Delivery of the ordered goods 
  
The first alternative that occurs is decisive for the time of acceptance.

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 represents a rejection of the offer. The customer is then no longer bound by his declaration of intent.

2.4. If the customer selects the payment method "PayPal" or "PayPal Express" to pay for his purchase, he submits his offer by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. If the customer issues the payment order to PayPal at the same time by clicking on this button, the seller declares, in deviation from the above regulations, to accept the customer's offer at the time the payment order is issued. 

2.5. The contract text of the contract concluded between the seller and the customer is saved by the seller. The contract text is saved on the seller's internal systems. The customer can view the general terms and conditions at any time on this page. The order data, the cancellation policy and the terms and conditions are sent to the customer by email. After completing the order, the contract text is available to the customer free of charge via his customer login, provided that the customer has opened a customer account. 


2.6. All entries made are displayed before clicking the order button and can be viewed by the customer before sending the order and corrected by pressing the back button of the browser or the usual mouse and keyboard functions. In addition, buttons are available to the customer for correction, if available, which are labeled accordingly. 


2.7. The contract language is German.

3. Prices and terms of payment

3.1. The prices shown are final prices including statutory sales tax, unless otherwise agreed.

3.2. If the delivery is made to non-EU countries, additional duties, taxes or fees may have to be paid by the customer to the customs or tax authorities responsible there or to credit institutions.
The customer is advised to inquire about the details before ordering from the respective institutions or authorities.

3.3. The customer can choose the payment methods that are available in the online shop.

3.4. When paying by "PayPal", the payment is processed via PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg. The PayPal terms of use apply for this. These can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full. 

3.5. When paying by "SOFORT", payment is processed by the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (hereinafter "SOFORT"). In order to be able to use the payment method, the customer needs an online banking account with PIN / TAN procedure activated for participation in "SOFORT", with which he can legitimize himself during the payment process and confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT" . The payment is carried out by "SOFORT" immediately after the payment process has been completed and the customer's bank account is debited. More information on the "SOFORT" payment method can be found on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.

4. Delivery and shipping conditions

4.1. The delivery of goods on the dispatch route takes place to the delivery address specified by the customer. Notwithstanding this, when paying by PayPal, the delivery address stored by the customer at PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.

4.2. If the seller incurs additional costs due to the specification of an incorrect delivery address or an incorrect addressee or other circumstances that lead to the impossibility of delivery, these must be reimbursed by the customer, unless he is not responsible for the incorrect information or impossibility. The same applies in the event that the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the service, unless the seller has appropriately announced the service beforehand. The costs of sending the goods are excluded from this regulation if the customer has effectively exercised his right of withdrawal. Here it remains with the legal regulation or the regulation made by the seller.


4.3. The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold is transferred to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the freight forwarder, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise assigned to carry out the shipment, if the customer is an entrepreneur. If the customer is a consumer, the transfer of risk only takes place when the goods are handed over to the customer or a person authorized to receive them.
Deviating from this, the transfer of risk also takes place for consumers as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the freight forwarder, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise appointed to carry out the shipment, if the customer has appointed the carrier, the carrier or otherwise to carry out the shipment Person or institution commissioned with the execution themselves and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.

4.4. The conclusion of the contract is subject to the proviso that in the event of improper, delayed or non-delivery self-deliveries, delivery is not made, or only partially or accordingly later. This only applies in the event that there is a congruent hedging transaction between the seller and the supplier, the improper, delayed or lack of self-delivery is not the responsibility of the seller and cannot be remedied with reasonable effort by him. In the event that the goods are unavailable or only partially available, the customer will be informed immediately. Any payment made will be refunded immediately.

4.5. Pickup is not offered.

4.6. Vouchers are given to the customer in the following form:

6. Retention of title

6.1. In contracts with consumers, the goods remain the property of the seller until they have been paid for in full.


6.2. In contracts with entrepreneurs, the goods remain the property of the seller until all claims from an ongoing business relationship have been settled in full. 


6.3. If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, he is entitled to resell the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business.
The customer assigns the claims against third parties arising from the resale to the seller in advance in the amount of the respective invoice value (including sales tax). This assignment applies regardless of whether the reserved goods were resold without or after processing. The customer may also collect claims after the assignment, but this does not affect the seller's right to collect the claims himself. However, the seller will refrain from collecting the claims as long as the customer fulfills his payment obligations to the seller, is not in default of payment and no application has been made to open bankruptcy proceedings against the customer.

  • or in the event of malice on the part of the seller and in the event of claims in accordance with §§ 478, 479 BGB

In the event of injury to life, body and health and the violation of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations), the seller is also liable in the event of slight negligence.
