1) Scope of Application
1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter “GTC”) of Walther & Treyz, Konzerte und Tonträger GbR (hereinafter “seller”) apply to all contracts that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter “customer”) concludes with the seller with regard to the seller’s goods and/or services presented in its 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 apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless expressly regulated otherwise.
1.3 A consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who concludes 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.
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 and/or services 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 and/or services 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, fax, e-mail or post.
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 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 when one of the above alternatives occurs first. 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.
2.4 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.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller’s online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) together with these General Terms and Conditions after the order has been sent. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the seller’s website and can be called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected customer account by entering the relevant login data, provided that the customer has created a customer account in the seller’s online shop before sending his order.
2.6 Before the binding submission of the order via the seller’s online order form, the customer can continuously correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions. In addition, all entries are displayed again in a confirmation window before the order is bindingly submitted and can also be corrected there using the usual keyboard and mouse functions.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 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.
3) Right to cancel
3.1 In principle, consumers are entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller’s cancellation policy.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller’s product description, the prices quoted are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which must be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for money transfers by banks (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs can also be incurred in relation to the transfer of money 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 Various payment options are available to the customer, which are specified in the seller’s online shop.
4.4 If payment in advance has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract.
5) Shipment and delivery conditions
5.1 Goods are delivered 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 is decisive.
5.2 If the transport company sends the shipped goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer effectively exercises his right of cancellation, if he is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller announced the service a reasonable amount of time in advance.
5.3 Pickup is not possible for logistical reasons.
5.4 Vouchers are given to the customer as follows:
- via download
- via E-Mail
6) Retention of title
If the seller pays in advance, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the statutory liability for defects applies.
7.2 Deviating from this, the limitation period for claims for defects in used goods is one year from delivery of the goods to the customer. However, reducing the limitation period to one year does not apply
- for items that have been used for a building in accordance with their usual purpose and have caused its defectiveness,
- for damage resulting from injury to life, limb or health that is based on an intentional or negligent breach of duty by the seller or an intentional or negligent breach of duty by a legal representative or vicarious agent of the seller,
- for other damages based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the seller or on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by a legal representative or vicarious agent of the user, as well as
- in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect.
7.3 The customer is asked to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the deliverer and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect whatsoever on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
8) Redeeming promotional vouchers
8.1 Vouchers that are issued free of charge by the seller as part of promotions with a specific period of validity and that cannot be purchased by the customer (hereinafter “promotional vouchers”) can only be redeemed in the seller’s online shop and only in the specified period.

8.9 The promotional voucher is transferrable. The seller can make payments with discharging effect to the respective owner who redeems the promotional voucher in the seller’s online shop. This does not apply if the seller has knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the non-authorization, the legal incapacity or the lack of the right to represent the respective owner.

10) Law and Jurisdiction
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For 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.

The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet under the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
