1) SCOPE OF APPLICATION
1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Dr. Elisa Kafritsas (hereinafter "Seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless something else has been agreed.
1.2 These General Terms and Conditions shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless expressly agreed otherwise.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions 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.
1.4 The subject of the contract can - depending on the seller's product description - be both the purchase of goods by way of a one-time delivery and the purchase of goods by way of a regular (permanent) delivery (hereinafter "subscription contract"). With the subscription contract, the seller undertakes to deliver the contractually owed goods to the customer for the duration of the agreed contract period in the contractually owed time intervals.
2) CONCLUSION OF 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 enable the customer to submit a binding offer.
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 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 email 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 (e-mail), whereby receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the above alternatives, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the above alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer has sent 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 is deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 If the "Amazon Payments" payment method is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe sca, 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, he also issues a payment order to Amazon by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer initiates the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the order process.
2.6 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent to the customer in text form (e-mail) after the order has been sent. The seller does not make the contract text 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 called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.7 Before submitting a binding 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 as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 The order processing and contact usually takes 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 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 to process the order can be delivered.

In the above cases, however, the seller is always entitled to appeal to the court at the customer's registered office.
