1) Scope

1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Grzegorz Rabiega, trading under "babyhafen" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") concludes 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 otherwise agreed.

1.2 These General Terms and Conditions shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise agreed.

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 can predominantly neither be attributed to their commercial nor their independent professional activity.

1.4 An entrepreneur within the meaning of these General 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 his or her commercial or independent professional activity.

2) Conclusion of contract

2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.

2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and completing 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 completes the ordering process.

2.3 The Seller may 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 the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
  • by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
  • by requesting payment from the customer after placing his order.

If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer and ends on the expiry 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 consequence that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.

2.4 If you select a payment method offered by PayPal, payment processing will be carried out via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à rl et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: “PayPal”), subject to the PayPal Terms of Use, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com /de /webapps /mpp /ua /useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the conditions for payments without a PayPal account, available 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 during the online ordering process, the seller hereby declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the time the customer clicks the button that completes the ordering process.

2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller after the contract has been concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. The seller will not make the contract text available beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before sending their order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via their password-protected user account by entering the relevant login data.

2.6 Before submitting a binding order via the seller's online order form, the customer can identify possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means of better identifying input errors can be the browser's zoom function, which helps to enlarge the display on the screen. The customer can correct his entries as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that completes the ordering process.

2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.

2.8 Order processing and contact are usually carried out via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the email address provided by him for order processing is correct so that emails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all emails sent by the seller or by third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.

3) Right of withdrawal

3.1 Consumers generally have 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 payment terms

4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller's product description, the prices stated are total prices that include statutory sales tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs are stated separately in the respective product description.

4.2 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller’s online shop.

4.3 If advance payment by bank transfer is agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.

4.4 If you select a payment method offered via the “PayPal” payment service, payment will be processed via PayPal, although PayPal may also use the services of third-party payment service providers for this purpose. If the seller also offers payment methods via PayPal where he makes advance payments to the customer (e.g. purchase on account or payment in installments), he assigns his payment claim to PayPal or to the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal and specifically named to the customer. Before accepting the seller’s declaration of assignment, PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal will carry out a credit check using the customer data transmitted. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the selected payment method if the test result is negative. If the selected payment method is approved, the customer must pay the invoice amount within the agreed payment period or at the agreed payment intervals. In this case, he can only make payments to PayPal or the payment service provider commissioned by PayPal with a debt-discharging effect. However, even in the event of an assignment of claims, the seller remains responsible for general customer enquiries, e.g. B. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipping, returns, complaints, declarations of revocation and sending or credit notes.

4.5 If you select a payment method offered via the payment service "Stripe", the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter "Stripe"). The individual payment methods offered via Stripe will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop. To process payments, Stripe may use other payment services for which special payment conditions may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately.

5) Delivery and shipping conditions

5.1 If the seller offers to ship the goods, delivery will be made within the delivery area specified by the seller 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. In deviation from this, if the PayPal payment method is selected, the delivery address stored by the customer with PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.

5.2 If the delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller as a result. This does not apply to the costs of delivery if the customer effectively exercises his right of cancellation. If the customer effectively exercises his right of cancellation, the provisions in the seller's cancellation policy apply to the return costs.

5.3 If the customer is acting as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold passes to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the forwarding agent, the freight carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment.

In deviation from this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold also passes to the customer in the case of consumers as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the forwarding agent, the freight carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment, if the customer has commissioned the forwarding agent, the freight carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.

5.4 The seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper self-delivery. This only applies if the non-delivery is not the responsibility of the seller and the seller has concluded a specific hedging transaction with the supplier with due care. The seller will make all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the event of unavailability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded immediately.

5.5 If the seller offers the goods for collection, the customer can collect the ordered goods from the address specified by the seller during the business hours specified by the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
