General Terms and Conditions (GTC)

1. Scope of application

The following GTCs apply to all orders made by consumers and business entities through our online shop.

A consumer is every natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that cannot be attributed primarily to their commercial or self-employed professional activity. A business entity is a natural or legal person or a legal business partnership who or which, when entering into a legal transaction, is exercising their commercial or self-employed professional activity.

For business entities, these GTC shall also apply to all future business relationships without the need for us to refer to them again. If the business entity applies conflicting or supplementary General Terms and Conditions, their validity is hereby objected to; they only become a part of the contract if we have explicitly agreed to them.

2. Contractual partner, conclusion of contract

The sales contract comes into effect with Amphiro AG.

By placing the products in our online shop we submit a binding offer upon the conclusion of a contract for these articles. You can first place our products in the shopping cart without obligation and correct your input prior to sending your binding order at any time by using the correction aids provided for this purpose and explained during the ordering process. The contract comes into effect when you accept the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the order button. Immediately after sending your order, you will be sent a confirmation again by email.

A binding contract can also come into effect prior to this as follows:

  • If you select credit card payment, the contract comes into effect at the point in time the credit card is charged.
  • If you select the payment method PayPal, the contract comes into effect at the point in time you confirm the payment order to PayPal.
  • If you select the payment method Giropay, the contract comes into effect at the point in time you confirm the payment order to Giropay.

The language available for concluding the contract is German.

We save the contract text and send you the order information and our GTCs by email. You can view our GTCs at any time on our website. Your previous orders are no longer accessible through the Internet for security reasons.
