§ 2 Conclusion of contract in the online shop - conclusion of a contract - correction options
1. The presentation of our goods in the online shop is non-binding. 
2. The customer can select from the range of products presented on the website and collect them in a so-called virtual shopping basket by clicking on the button "Add to shopping basket". The customer can leave the virtual shopping cart at any time in order to view and add further products on the website and then call it up again. 
3. By clicking on the "Checkout" button in the virtual shopping cart, the customer is taken to a page where he/she can enter the data required to complete the order (e.g. address and payment method/information) and then view his/her entire order (order overview page). By clicking on the button "pay now", the customer makes a binding offer to purchase the products in the virtual shopping basket. 
4. Before submitting the order, the customer can view and change the data directly on the order overview page at any time and correct possible input errors. The purchase offer can only be submitted and transmitted if the customer has accepted by "ticking off" the options "I have read the General Terms and Conditions and expressly agree to them" before submitting the order. The General Terms and Conditions thereby become part of the customer's offer. 
5. After receipt of the order, redfries will send the customer an automatic order confirmation by e-mail, which confirms the technical receipt of the order by redfries and again lists the details of the customer's order. The customer can print out this e-mail and save it in his e-mail inbox. The automatic order confirmation merely documents that the customer's order has been received by redfries' IT system and does not constitute a declaration of acceptance of the customer's purchase offer. 
6. The purchase contract will only be concluded if redfries accepts the offer by sending the goods or expressly declares acceptance of the purchase offer to the customer in text form. In the case of payment in advance, the goods will only be sent after the full amount has been credited to the account of redfries.

3. Vis-à-vis entrepreneurs, claims of the customer due to material defects in new goods shall become statute-barred after one year from the date of handover of the object of purchase. The sale of used goods is subject to the exclusion of any liability for material defects. § Section 479 of the German Civil Code (BGB) remains unaffected. 
4. The above limitations shall not apply in the event of claims by the customer arising from injury to life, limb or health or from the breach of essential contractual obligations. Material contractual obligations are the basic, elementary obligations arising from the contractual relationship, the fulfilment of which makes the proper performance of the contract possible in the first place, the breach of which jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of the contract and the observance of which the customer regularly relies on and may rely on.

If the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with the contractual relationships between redfries and the customer is the registered office of redfries (Regensburg).
