General Terms and Conditions and Customer Information

I. General Terms and Conditions

§ 1 Basic provisions

(1) The following business terms are applicable to all the contracts, which you conclude with me as a supplier (Erich Romberg) via the vanitytime.de website. Unless otherwise agreed, the inclusion of your own terms and conditions, if any, is hereby rejected.

(2) A consumer within the meaning of the following provisions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to their commercial nor their independent professional activity. An entrepreneur is any natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, is acting in the exercise of their independent professional or commercial activity.

§ 2 Conclusion of the contract

(1) The subject of the contract is the sale of my books with personalised dedication according to customer specifications.

(2) By placing the respective product on our website, we make you a binding offer to conclude a contract via the online shopping basket system under the conditions specified in the item description. 

(3) The contract is concluded via the online shopping basket system as follows:
The books intended for purchase are placed in the "shopping basket". You can call up the "shopping basket" via the corresponding button in the navigation bar and make changes there at any time.
After clicking on the "Checkout" or "Continue to order" button (or similar) and entering your personal data as well as the payment and shipping conditions, the order data will be displayed as an order overview.

If you use an instant payment system (e.g. PayPal (Express/Plus/Checkout), Amazon Pay, Sofort, giropay) as a payment method, you will either be taken to the order overview page in our online shop or redirected to the website of the provider of the instant payment system.
If you are redirected to the respective instant payment system, make the appropriate selection or enter your data there. Finally, the order data will be displayed as an order overview on the website of the instant payment system provider or after you have been redirected back to our online shop.

Before submitting the order, you have the option of checking the details in the order overview again, changing them (also using the "back" function of the Internet browser) or cancelling the order. 

By submitting the order via the corresponding button ("order with obligation to pay", "buy" / "buy now", "order with obligation to pay", "pay" / "pay now" or similar designation), you declare legally binding acceptance of the offer, whereby the contract is concluded. 
(4) The processing of the order and transmission of all information required in connection with the conclusion of the contract is partially automated by e-mail. You must therefore ensure that the e-mail address you have provided to us is correct, that the receipt of e-mails is technically ensured and, in particular, that it is not prevented by SPAM filters.

§ 3 Customised goods

(1) You shall provide us with the suitable information, texts or files required for the customised design of the goods via the online ordering system or by e-mail at the latest immediately after conclusion of the contract. Any specifications we may have regarding file formats must be observed.

(2) You undertake not to transmit any data whose content infringes the rights of third parties (in particular copyrights, naming rights, trademark rights) or violates existing laws. You expressly indemnify us against all claims asserted by third parties in this connection. This also applies to the costs of any legal representation required in this connection.

(3) We do not check the transmitted data for correctness of content and in this respect accept no liability for errors.


§ 4 Right of retention, retention of title

(1) You may only exercise a right of retention insofar as it concerns claims arising from the same contractual relationship.

(2) The goods shall remain our property until the purchase price has been paid in full.

(3) If you are an entrepreneur, the following shall apply in addition:

(a) We reserve title to the goods until all claims arising from the current business relationship have been settled in full. Prior to the transfer of ownership of the reserved goods, pledging or transfer by way of security is not permitted.

b) You may resell the goods in the ordinary course of business. In this case, you hereby assign to us all claims in the amount of the invoice amount that accrue to you from the resale; we accept the assignment. You are further authorised to collect the claim. However, if you do not properly fulfil your payment obligations, we reserve the right to collect the claim ourselves.

c) If the goods subject to retention of title are combined and mixed, we shall acquire co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the invoice value of the goods subject to retention of title to the other processed items at the time of processing.

d) We undertake to release the securities to which we are entitled at your request to the extent that the realisable value of our securities exceeds the claim to be secured by more than 10%. We shall be responsible for selecting the securities to be released.

§ 5 Warranty

(1) The statutory warranty rights apply.

(2) As a consumer, you are requested to check the goods immediately upon delivery for completeness, obvious defects and transport damage and to notify us and the carrier of any complaints as soon as possible. If you fail to do so, this shall have no effect on your statutory warranty claims.

(3) If a characteristic of the goods deviates from the objective requirements, the deviation shall only be deemed to have been agreed if you were informed of the same by us before submitting the contractual declaration and the deviation was expressly and separately agreed between the contracting parties.

(4) If you are an entrepreneur, the following shall apply in deviation from the above warranty provisions:

(a) Only our own specifications and the manufacturer's product description shall be deemed agreed as the quality of the goods, but not other advertising, public promotions and statements by the manufacturer.

b) In the event of defects, we provide warranty at our discretion either by rectification of defects or subsequent delivery. If the rectification of defects fails, you may, at your discretion, demand a reduction in price or withdraw from the contract. The rectification of defects shall be deemed to have failed after the second unsuccessful attempt, unless the nature of the goods or the defect or other circumstances indicate otherwise. In the event of rectification of defects, we shall not be obliged to bear the increased costs arising from the transport of the goods to a location other than the place of fulfilment, provided that the transport does not correspond to the intended use of the goods.

c) The warranty period is one year from delivery of the goods. The shortening of the period shall not apply:

- for culpably caused damage attributable to us arising from injury to life, limb or health and in the case of other damage caused intentionally or through gross negligence;
- insofar as we have fraudulently concealed the defect or have assumed a guarantee for the quality of the item;
- in the case of items that have been used for a building in accordance with their normal use and have caused its defectiveness;
- in the case of statutory recourse claims that you have against us in connection with warranty rights.

§ 6 Choice of law

(1) German law shall apply. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection afforded by mandatory provisions of the law of the state of the consumer's habitual residence is not thereby withdrawn (principle of favourability).

(2) The provisions of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall expressly not apply.
