3. Conclusion of contract

(1) By placing an order via Internet (by clicking the button “Order”), by e-mail, by telephone or other means of communication, the customer submits a binding offer to conclude an agreement. The customer will receive an e-mail confirming the receipt of his/her order. The e-mail confirmation of the order does not constitute an agreement to accept the offer, and merely serves to inform the customer that their order was received by the online shop.

(2) A purchase agreement is concluded once the Cooperative accepts the customer’s offer by shipping the ordered product to the customer and/or confirming shipment of the order to the customer by e-mail.

6. Liability

(1) These terms and conditions shall conclusively regulate all cases of breach of contract and their respective legal consequences as well as all claims the customer may make, irrespective of the reason for which they are made. In no event shall the customer be entitled to claim compensation for damages not caused to the product itself. This also holds true with regard to the personal liability for compensation on the part of our staff, employees, representatives or agents. Any liability claim that exceeds the value of the order is excluded.

(2) The above limitation of liability pursuant to para 1 does not apply in the event of unlawful intent (malice) or gross negligence.
