§ 1 . Area of Application

(1) These General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively to business relationships via the DOM online shop between  Christian Koban Frankfurt am Main (hereinafter: “DOM”), and the customer for the delivery of goods. The valid version hereof is applicable upon ordering. Deviating terms and conditions of customers shall not be acknowledged by DOM, unless DOM has issued express written approval.

(2) Other General Terms and Conditions from DOM, in particular the General Terms and Conditions applicable in DOM stores are expressly not applicable to orders via the DOM online shop.

Christian Koban

(2) Contractual language is German.

§ 3 . Conclusion of Contract

(1) The presentation of products on the DOM online shop does not represent a binding offer. These are subject to change and non-binding. The customer issues a binding offer to DOM, when the online ordering process with the entry of the required information is completed and the “Send Order” button in the last step is clicked. This order represents an offer to DOM to conclude a purchase agreement.

(2) After the customer has sent the order, DOM shall send the customer an email confirming receipt of the order by DOM and which confirms the details (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not represent acceptance of the offer, but is merely intended to inform the customer that the order has been received by DOM.

(3) A purchase agreement is first initiated when the ordered product is dispatched to the customer and dispatch to the customer is confirmed by a second email (confirmation of despatch). No purchase agreement is made for products from one and the same order and which is not included in the confirmation of despatch. For the “advance payment” mode of payment (see section 7 (3)), the purchase agreement is already concluded on the submission of the order by the customer and despatch of the advance payment demand by DOM.

(4) If DOM is unable to accept the customer’s offer, the customer shall be notified of the non-availability of the ordered item. DOM shall refund the customer’s payment without delay.

(5) Only agreements with end consumers shall be accepted. DOM also does not offer any products for purchase by minors. DOM products intended for children may also only be purchased by adults.

(6) All products shall only be sold in household usual quantities. This refers both to the quantity of an ordered product within the scope of one order and also to the issue of several orders for the same product, in which the individual orders are in the scope of usual household quantities.

§ 4 . Contract Documents

The specific contractual text regarding the order is not stored by DOM and cannot be recalled following conclusion of the ordering process. The customer should therefore carefully store all documents and messages received from DOM. In ordering by DOM, the customer has the opportunity to secure the contract data via the print function intended for this purpose.

§ 5 . Instructions for Right of Return Right of Return

The customer may return the goods without providing grounds, within 30 days. This term commences upon receipt of this instruction in text form (e.g.) via letter, fax, email), however not before receipt of the goods. The customer may only declare return by request of return in text form by goods which cannot be posted (e.g. bulky goods). The term is deemed adhered to through timely return postage or request of return. In all cases return is at the risk and expense of DOM. Returned goods or the request of return should be addressed to:

Christian Koban Onlineshop
Neue Kräme 29
D-60311 Frankfurt am Main

Consequences of Return In the event of an effective return the performance of both parties shall be returned and where applicable usage benefits (e.g. benefits through use) shall be deducted. In the event of a deterioration of the goods, replacement of value may be demanded. This shall not apply where the deterioration of the goods arises exclusively from inspection thereof, as would have been possible in a shop. Otherwise the customer can avoid an obligation to provide replacement through damage arising through use of the goods, by not treating the goods as own property and avoiding actions which reduce the value of the goods. Obligation to refund payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. This term commences for the customer on the return sending of the goods or request of return, for DOM upon receipt. End of the instructions for right of return Notice: right of return is excluded on agreements for • the supply of goods produced according to customer specifications or clearly tailored to personal needs or which, by reason of their quality, are not suitable for return or may spoil quickly or whose expiration date would be exceeded, • delivery of audio or video recordings, where the seal has been broken, • delivery of newspapers, magazines and illustrateds.
