1) SCOPE OF APPLICATION
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as “GTC”) of SIRO Antriebs- und Steuerungstechnik GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “Seller”) shall apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”) concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods displayed by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer’s own terms and conditions is hereby rejected, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 For contracts for the delivery of vouchers, these General Terms and Conditions apply accordingly, unless otherwise expressly regulated.
1.3 Consumer in the sense of these GTC is every natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor his independent professional activity. Entrepreneur in the sense of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which acts in exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
2) CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop of the seller 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 via the online order form integrated in the seller’s online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the Customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button concluding the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by telephone, e-mail or online contact form.
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 receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by requesting the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer 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 will be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this. If the Customer has set up a user account in the Seller’s online shop before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the Seller’s website and can be accessed by the Customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by entering the corresponding login data.
2.5 Before binding submission of the order via the seller’s online order form, the customer can identify possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better recognition of input errors can be the enlargement function of the browser, which is used to enlarge the display on the screen. Within the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 The order processing and contact are usually 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 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 REVOCATION
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of revocation.
3.2 NäMore detailed information on the right of revocation can be found in the seller’s revocation policy.
4) PRICES AND PAYMENT CONDITIONS
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller’s product description, the prices quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs that may be incurred shall be stated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, further costs may arise 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 charges) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of money if the delivery is not 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) is/are communicated to the customer in the online shop of the seller.
4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed upon, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed upon a later due date.
5) DELIVERY AND SHIPPING CONDITIONS
5.1 The delivery of goods is carried out by dispatch to the delivery address indicated by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. The delivery address indicated in the order processing of the seller is decisive for the transaction. Notwithstanding the above, if the payment method PayPal is selected, the delivery address stored by the Customer with PayPal at the time of payment shall be decisive.
5.2 If the delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller as a result. This does not apply with regard to the costs for the original delivery if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. In the event that the customer effectively exercises his right of revocation, the provision made in the seller’s revocation policy shall apply to the costs of return shipment.
5.3 In the case of collection by the customer, the seller shall first inform the customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by the customer are ready for collection. After receipt of this e-mail, the customer can pick up the goods at the seller’s place of business after consultation with the seller. In this case no shipping costs will be charged.
5.4 Vouchers are given to the customer as follows:

10) APPLICABLE LAW
All legal relations between the parties shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law only applies insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
11) PLACE OF JURISDICTION
If the customer acts as a merchant, legal person under public law or 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 is the registered office of the seller. If the customer’s registered office is outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller’s registered office 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 shall in any case be entitled to appeal to the court at the Customer’s place of business.
