1) Scope of Application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as “GTC”) of founderholics GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “Seller”), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods, which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”) concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online store. The inclusion of the Customer’s own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, 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 can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. 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 his 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 for the submission of a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The Customer may submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller’s online store. In doing so, 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 that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer can also submit the offer to the seller by telephone or e-mail.
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, or
by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer shall be decisive, or
by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed the order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract shall be concluded at the point in time at which 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 to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.
2.5 If the payment method “Amazon Payments” is selected, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe s.c.a., 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (hereinafter: “Amazon”), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe User Agreement, which can be viewed at https://payments.amazon.de/help/201751590. If the Customer selects “Amazon Payments” as the payment method during the online ordering process, the Customer shall also issue a payment order to Amazon at the same time by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer’s offer at the time when the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.6 When submitting an offer via the Seller’s online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer’s order has been sent. 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 store before sending his order, the order data shall be archived on the Seller’s website and can be accessed by the Customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the relevant login data.
2.7 Before bindingly placing 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, with the help of which the display on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 Order processing and contacting usually take place via 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 withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of revocation.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller’s cancellation policy.

4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional 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 payment in advance by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.6 If the payment method “SOFORT” is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (hereinafter “SOFORT”). In order to be able to pay the invoice amount via “SOFORT”, the customer must have an online banking account that has been activated for participation in “SOFORT”, must identify himself accordingly during the payment process and must confirm the payment instruction to “SOFORT”. The payment transaction will be executed immediately afterwards by “SOFORT” and the customer’s bank account will be debited. More detailed information about the payment method “SOFORT” can be found by the customer on the internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods is carried out by shipping to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the Seller’s order processing 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 shall not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises its right of revocation. In the event of effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision made in this regard in the seller’s revocation instructions shall apply to the return costs.

8) Redemption of promotional vouchers

This shall not apply if the Seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the ineligibility, legal incapacity or lack of representative authority of the respective holder.
9) Applicable Law
All legal relationships between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws on the international sale of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
10) 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 place of business of the seller. If the customer has its registered office 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 apply to the court at the Customer’s place of business.
