2. If you are a consumer within the meaning of Section 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB), the limitation period for warranty claims for used goods - contrary to the statutory provisions - is one year. This limitation does not apply to claims arising from damage resulting from injury to life, body or health or from the violation of an essential contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on whose compliance the contractual partner may regularly rely (cardinal obligation) as well as for claims due to other damages, which are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the user or his vicarious agents.
3. For the rest, the statutory provisions apply to the warranty.
4. If you are an entrepreneur within the meaning of Section 14 of the German Civil Code (BGB), the statutory provisions apply with the following modifications:
Only our own information and the manufacturer's product description are binding for the quality of the goods, but not public advertisements and statements and other advertising by the manufacturer.
You are obliged to inspect the goods immediately and with due care for quality and quantity deviations and to notify us of obvious defects within 7 days from receipt of the goods. The timely dispatch is sufficient to meet the deadline. This also applies to hidden defects found later on from detection. In the event of a breach of the obligation to investigate and complain, the assertion of the warranty performance claims is excluded.
In the event of defects, we shall at our discretion provide warranty by rectification or replacement delivery (subsequent performance). In the event of repair, we do not have to bear the increased costs incurred by the transfer of the goods to a place other than the place of performance, provided that the shipment does not correspond to the intended use of the goods.
If the subsequent performance fails twice, you can demand a reduction at your discretion or withdraw from the contract.
The warranty period is two years from delivery of the goods.

§ 10 Liability

1. Unlimited liability: We are liable without limitation for intent and gross negligence as well as in accordance with the Product Liability Act. We are liable for slight negligence in the event of damage resulting from injury to the life, body and health of persons.
2. In the rest of the world, the following limited liability applies: In the event of slight negligence, we shall only be liable in the event of a breach of an essential contractual obligation, the fulfilment of which enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on whose compliance you may regularly rely (cardinal obligation). Liability for slight negligence is limited to the foreseeable damages at the time of conclusion of the contract, the occurrence of which must typically be expected. This limitation of liability also applies to the benefit of our vicarious agents.

§ 11 Alternative dispute resolution

The European Commission has provided a platform for out-of-court dispute resolution. This gives consumers the opportunity to resolve disputes related to your online order without the involvement of a court. The dispute resolution platform is under the external link.
We make every effort to resolve any differences of opinion alike in our contract by mutual agreement. In addition, we are not obliged to participate in a conciliation procedure and unfortunately cannot offer you participation in such a procedure.

§ 12 Final provisions

1. Should one or more provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be or become ineffective, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.
2. Only German law applies to contracts between us and you, excluding the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). Mandatory provisions of the country in which you are usually staying remain unaffected by the choice of law.
3. If you are a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, our registered office shall be the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising out of or in connection with contracts between us and you.
