1) Scope of application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Dominik Hofele, acting as "RetroDudeDE" (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods displayed by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can predominantly neither be attributed to his commercial nor his self-employed professional activity. Entrepreneur in the sense of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
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 submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping basket and completing the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by clicking the button completing 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 point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the dispatch of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.4 If the payment method "PayPal Express" is selected, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as "PayPal"), in accordance with the 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 - in accordance with the Terms of Payment without a PayPal account, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the Customer selects "PayPal Express" as the method of payment within the framework of the online order process, he also issues a payment order to PayPal by clicking on the button completing the order process. In this case, the Seller hereby declares acceptance of the Customer's offer at the point in time at which the Customer initiates the payment process by clicking the button completing the order process.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is stored by the seller after conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after dispatch of the customer's order. The seller shall 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 retrieved by the customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 Prior to binding submission of the order via the Seller's online order form, the customer may recognize possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better recognition of input errors may be the zoom function of the browser, with the help of which the display on the screen is enlarged. Within the framework of the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button completing the ordering process.
2.7 Only the english language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 The order processing and establishment of contact usually take place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him/her for order processing is correct so that e-mails sent by the seller can be received at his/her address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
3) Right of revocation
3.1 In principle, consumers are entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of revocation can be found in the seller's revocation instructions.

4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be stated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 The customer shall be informed of the payment option(s) in the seller's online shop.
4.3 If payment is made by means of a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment shall be processed by the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as "PayPal"), in accordance with the 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 - in accordance with the Terms of Payment without a PayPal account, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 Unless otherwise agreed, goods shall be delivered by shipment to the delivery address specified by the customer. The delivery address stated in the Seller's order processing is decisive for the transaction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, when selecting the payment method PayPal, the delivery address provided by the Customer to PayPal at the time of payment shall be decisive.
5.2 If the carrier returns the shipped goods to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer shall bear the costs of the unsuccessful shipment. This shall not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller had given him reasonable notice of the service in advance. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the shipment if the customer exercises his right of revocation effectively. In the event that the customer exercises the right of revocation effectively, the provision of the seller's revocation policy shall apply to the return costs.
5.3 Self-collection is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) Retention of title
if the seller makes an advance payment, he shall retain title to the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.

7) Liability for defects (warranty)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of statutory liability for defects shall apply.
7.2 The customer is requested to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller if this is the case. If the customer does not comply with this, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual warranty claims.

8) Applicable law
All legal relationships between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws governing the international sale of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence.

9) Alternative dispute resolution
9.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
This platform serves as a contact point for out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online sales or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
9.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
