In accordance with § 13 BGB (German Civil Code), the consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that cannot be attributed primarily to their commercial or self-employed professional activity. In accordance with § 14 BGB, an entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or self-employed professional activity.

2 Conclusion of contract in the Onlineshop under shop-beckco-werkzeuge. de 

(1) The product descriptions in the shop do not represent legally binding offers. Rather, this is a request to the buyer to submit a binding offer by placing an order. 

(2) Offer submission in the online shop at shop-beckco-werkzeuge. de 

By clicking on the button “Add to shopping cart” and specifying the desired order quantity, an article selected by the buyer in the online shop is added to the virtual shopping cart of the online shop as a preregistration for a possible conclusion of a contract. If there are minimum order quantities or fixed packaging units (PU) for one or more articles to be placed in the shopping cart, the shopping cart is automatically adjusted to the corresponding minimum order quantity or fixed packaging unit. Once the buyer has placed all the selected items in the shopping cart, they can proceed to the checkout process by clicking on the “Checkout” button. The buyer then gets to the point “Login”. Here the buyer has to log in and enter his customer data. If the buyer already has a customer account with the seller, the buyer can log in as an existing customer with his email address and password and his customer data will be displayed directly. If the buyer is a new customer, he must enter his data and possibly a different delivery address at this point of the order process. If the buyer has called up or indicated his customer data, he can continue the ordering process by clicking the button “continue order”. The buyer then gets to the point “Details”. The buyer has to select a shipping method and a payment method by clicking on the appropriate button. The buyer can then continue the ordering process by clicking the “Continue order” button. Then the buyer must confirm by placing a “hook” that he has read and accepted the General Terms and Conditions (GTC), the Privacy Policy, the Revocation Policy and the Instructions for the Disposal of Batteries and Rechargeable Batteries. By clicking the button “Buy” the buyer can complete the order. Until the buyer has clicked on the “Buy” button, he can go back to these points in the order process at any time by clicking on the individual order steps and correct possible input errors. After clicking the button “Buy” a correction is no longer possible. The binding offer of the buyer to conclude a contract will then be forwarded to the seller. The buyer will be informed of the order number. The seller will inform the buyer of the receipt of the order immediately by e-mail. However, confirmation of receipt of the order does not constitute acceptance of the purchase offer.

7 Retention of title 

For consumers applies: 

(1) The goods remain the property of the seller until full payment has been made. Prior to the transfer of ownership, pledging, transfer by way of security, processing or transformation is not permitted without the seller’s consent. 

For entrepreneurs applies: 

(2) The seller retains title to the purchased item until all payments arising from the delivery contract have been received. In the event of breach of contract by the buyer, in particular in the event of default of payment, the seller is entitled to take back the object of sale. The seller’s taking back of the purchased item shall constitute a withdrawal from the contract. After taking back the object of sale, the seller is entitled to sell the object of sale; the proceeds from the sale are to be set off against the buyer’s liabilities – less reasonable costs of sale. 

(3) The purchaser is obliged to treat the object of sale with care; in particular, he is obliged to insure it at his own expense against damage caused by fire, water and theft at replacement value. Insofar as maintenance and inspection work is required, the buyer must carry out such work in good time at his own expense. 

(4) In the event of seizures or other interventions by third parties, the Purchaser shall notify the Seller immediately in writing so that the Seller may bring an action in accordance with § 771 ZPO (German Code of Civil Procedure). Insofar as the third party is not in a position to reimburse the Seller for the judicial and extrajudicial costs of an action pursuant to § 771 ZPO, the Buyer shall be liable for the loss incurred by the Seller. 

(5) The Buyer shall be entitled to resell the object of sale in the ordinary course of business; however, he shall already now assign to the Seller all claims in the amount of the final invoice amount (including VAT) of the Seller’s claim which accrue to him from the resale against his customers or third parties, irrespective of whether the object of sale has been resold without or after processing. The buyer remains authorised to collect this claim even after the assignment. The seller’s authority to collect the claim itself remains unaffected by this. However, the seller undertakes not to collect the claim as long as the buyer meets his payment obligations from the collected proceeds, is not in default of payment and, in particular, as long as no petition for the opening of composition or insolvency proceedings has been filed or payments have been suspended. If this is the case, however, the seller may demand that the buyer discloses to him the assigned claims and their debtors, provides all information necessary for collection, hands over the associated documents and informs the debtors (third parties) of the assignment. 

(6) Until complete payment of the purchase item by the buyer, the processing or transformation of the purchase item by the buyer always takes place on behalf of the seller. If the object of sale is processed with other objects not belonging to the seller, the seller acquires co-ownership of the new object in proportion to the value of the object of sale (final invoice amount, including VAT) to the other processed objects at the time of processing. In all other respects, the same shall apply to the item created by processing as to the object of sale delivered under reservation of title. 

(7) If the object of sale is inseparably mixed with other objects not belonging to the Seller, the Seller shall acquire co-ownership of the new object in the ratio of the value of the object of sale (final invoice amount, including VAT) to the other mixed objects at the time of mixing until the Buyer has paid the object of sale in full. If the mixing is carried out in such a way that the buyer’s item is to be regarded as the main item, it is deemed to be agreed that the buyer shall transfer pro rata co-ownership to the seller. The buyer shall keep the resulting sole ownership or co-ownership for the seller. 

(8) The buyer also assigns to the seller the claims to secure his claims against him, which accrue against a third party through the combination of the object of sale with a property. 

(9) The Seller undertakes to release the securities to which he is entitled at the Buyer’s request insofar as the realisable value of the Seller’s securities exceeds the claims to be secured by more than 10 %; the choice of the securities to be released is the Seller’s responsibility.
