1) Scope
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Marta Skowronek, trading under "martasillustration" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") has 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 GTC shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of digital content, unless expressly agreed otherwise.

 

1.3 These General Terms and Conditions shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of tickets, unless expressly agreed otherwise. These terms and conditions only regulate the sale of tickets for certain events specified in the seller's item description and not the implementation of these events. The statutory provisions in the relationship between the customer and the organizer as well as any deviating conditions of the organizer apply exclusively to the execution of the events. If the seller is not also the organizer at the same time, he is not liable for the proper execution of the event, for which the respective organizer is exclusively responsible.

 

1.4 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.

 

1.5 Digital content within the meaning of these terms and conditions is all data that is not on a physical data carrier, which is produced in digital form and made available by the seller under the granting of certain rights of use that are more precisely regulated in these terms and conditions.

 

 

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.

 

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 email), 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.

 

2.4 If you select a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "PayPal"), under the validity of PayPal - Terms of use, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - under the conditions for payments without a PayPal account, can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the customer pays using a payment method offered by PayPal that can be selected in the online ordering process, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.

 

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, by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process, he also issues a payment order to Amazon. 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 contract text is saved by the seller after the conclusion of the contract and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) 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.

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.

2.9 The order processing and contact usually takes place via e-mail and automated order processing.
