1) SCOPE OF APPLICATION
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Tamara Ammon, trading as "Knitloop" (hereinafter "Seller"), shall apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online store. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of digital content, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.3 For the purposes of these GTC, a consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. 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.
1.4 Digital content within the meaning of these GTC is all data that is not on a physical data carrier, which is produced in digital form and provided by the seller under the granting of certain rights of use regulated in more detail in these GTC.
2) CONCLUSION OF THE 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, e-mail or post.
2.3 The Seller may accept the Customer's offer within five days,
Liegen mehrere der vorgenannten Alternativen vor, kommt der Vertrag in dem Zeitpunkt zustande, in dem eine der vorgenannten Alternativen zuerst eintritt. Die Frist zur Annahme des Angebots beginnt am Tag nach der Absendung des Angebots durch den Kunden zu laufen und endet mit dem Ablauf des fünften Tages, welcher auf die Absendung des Angebots folgt. Nimmt der Verkäufer das Angebot des Kunden innerhalb vorgenannter Frist nicht an, so gilt dies als Ablehnung des Angebots mit der Folge, dass der Kunde nicht mehr an seine Willenserklärung gebunden ist.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller and sent to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order together with these General Terms and Conditions. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the Seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the Customer via his password-protected customer account by providing the relevant login data, provided that the Customer has created a customer account in the Seller's online store before submitting his order.
2.6 Before bindingly submitting 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.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 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 REVOCATION
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the Seller's cancellation policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
4) PRICES AND TERMS OF PAYMENT
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices. Sales tax is not shown, as the seller is a small entrepreneur in the sense of the UStG. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
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 credit card payment method is selected, the invoice amount is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract. The credit card payment method is processed in cooperation with secupay AG, Goethestr. 6, 01896 Pulsnitz (www.secupay.ag) to which the Provider assigns its payment claim. The secupay AG collects the invoice amount from the specified credit card account of the customer. In the event of assignment, payment can only be made to secupay AG with debt-discharging effect. The credit card shall be charged immediately after the customer's order has been sent in the online store. Even if the credit card payment method is selected, the provider shall remain responsible via secupay AG for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipment, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes.
4.7 If the payment method Direct Debit via Stripe is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: "Stripe"). In this case, Stripe will collect the invoice amount from the Customer's bank account after issuing a SEPA Direct Debit Mandate, but not before the expiry of the Pre-Notification period on behalf of the Seller. Pre-notification is any communication (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) to the customer announcing a debit via SEPA Direct Debit. If the direct debit is not honored due to a lack of sufficient funds in the account or due to the provision of incorrect bank details, or if the customer objects to the direct debit even though he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the fees incurred by the respective credit institution as a result of the chargeback if he is responsible for this. The seller reserves the right to conduct a credit check when selecting the payment method SEPA direct debit and to reject this payment method in case of a negative credit check.
4.8 If the payment method credit card via Stripe is selected, the invoice amount is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract. The payment is processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: "Stripe"). Stripe reserves the right to perform a credit check and to reject this payment method in case of a negative credit check.
5) DELIVERY AND SHIPPING CONDITIONS

5.2 If the transport company returns the shipped goods to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer shall bear the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal, if he is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery, or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller had given him reasonable advance notice of the service.
