§ General

The following General Terms and Conditions (GTC) between Secondhandbags AG and its customers, hereinafter also referred to as “orderer” or “buyer”, apply to all business relationships, including all orders via telephone, fax, internet, email or letter. The version of the GTC valid at the time of the order is always decisive. These therefore also apply to all future terms and conditions, even if they are not expressly agreed again. By placing the order, the customer accepts the following terms and conditions.

Deviations from these terms and conditions are only effective if Secondhandbags AG acknowledges and confirms them in writing. Purchasing conditions of the customer are not binding, even if Secondhandbags AG does not expressly contradict them. Counter-confirmations by the customer with reference to his business or purchasing conditions are hereby rejected.

§ Offer and conclusion of contract

The customer's order represents an offer to Secondhandbags AG to conclude a purchase contract. After receipt of the order, Secondhandbags AG will inform the customer of the receipt of his order by email (order confirmation). The order confirmation does not represent an acceptance of the offer of the customer. The purchase contract is concluded with acceptance of the offer by Secondhandbags AG. Acceptance takes place through the dispatch confirmation sent by email or through delivery of the goods. Secondhandbags AG can accept the offer within two weeks of receipt of the offer from the customer.

Secondhandbags AG only concludes contracts with legal entities and natural persons with unlimited legal capacity who have reached the age of majority. If it turns out that the customer is not yet of legal age, Secondhandbags AG is entitled to withdraw.

§ Purchase on account with partial payment option (PowerPay AG)

With the PowerPay monthly invoice, you can easily settle your online purchase by invoice with a partial payment option.

Fixed delivery dates must be confirmed in writing by Secondhandbags AG. There are no shipping costs for ordered goods that are made available for collection. The ordered goods are usually dispatched 1-3 working days after receipt of the purchase price (prepayment).

After the first attempt at delivery, the transport risk and the risk of spoilage of the goods are transferred to the purchaser, as delays in acceptance may result in the goods being spoiled. Secondhandbags AG is entitled to partial deliveries and partial services at any time. These must be acceptable to the customer to a reasonable extent. The customer only bears the shipping costs incurred for the entire delivery of the ordered items.

Delivery and service delays due to force majeure and due to events that make Secondhandbags AG significantly more difficult or impossible to deliver - this includes in particular strikes, lockouts, official orders, etc. - even if they occur with the deliveries for Secondhandbags AG or its sub-suppliers, Secondhandbags has AG is not responsible even in the case of binding deadlines and dates. You authorize Secondhandbags AG to postpone the delivery or service for the duration of the hindrance plus a reasonable start-up time or to withdraw from the contract in whole or in part because of the part that has not yet been fulfilled. If the hindrance lasts longer than 5 working days, Secondhandbags AG is entitled, after a reasonable grace period, to withdraw from the contract with regard to the part that has not yet been fulfilled. If the delivery time is extended or if Secondhandbags AG is released from its obligation, the customer cannot derive any claims for damages.

§ Limitation of Liability and Defect Rights

If there is a defect in the ordered goods, the statutory provisions apply, unless otherwise stipulated below. If Secondhandbags AG is liable for damage to the customer due to simple negligence on the basis of the statutory provisions, the following applies: Liability for simple negligence only exists in the event of delay or impossibility or breach of an essential contractual obligation and is limited to the reasonably foreseeable typical damage (contract-typical average damage). It is also limited to the order value. No compensation will be given for lost profit. Incidentally, Secondhandbags AG's statutory liability remains unaffected, in particular liability for willful intent, fraudulent concealment of a defect, gross negligence and any no-fault liability. Any liability arising from the assumption of a guarantee also remains unaffected.

The limitation of liability also applies to third parties who are included in the scope of the contractual relationship. The legal representatives, employees and vicarious agents of Secondhandbags AG are not liable further than Secondhandbags AG themselves.

Warranty claims are initially limited to supplementary performance. The supplementary performance takes place without recognition of a legal obligation and does not lead to a new start of the limitation period. The customer can only withdraw from the contract or reduce the purchase price if the subsequent performance fails.

If the delivery item is defective, the deficiency must be reported to Secondhandbags AG immediately after receipt of the goods, with notification by email being sufficient. Access by Secondhandbags AG is decisive for compliance with the deadline. A violation of the above obligations excludes any warranty claims against Secondhandbags AG. If the delivery item is defective or if the guaranteed properties are missing, the warranty is provided exclusively through replacement delivery. Multiple repairs are permitted. Further claims by the customer are excluded, unless the replacement delivery fails after a reasonable period. Then the customer can, at his option, request a reduction in the purchase price or cancellation of the contract.
