(2) Customers within the meaning of these Terms and Conditions are both consumers and entrepreneurs. Consumers in the sense of the Terms and Conditions are natural persons who conclude contracts for a purpose that can be attributed neither to their commercial nor to their professional activity. Entrepreneurs within the meaning of the Terms and Conditions are natural or legal persons or partnerships with legal capacity who, when concluding a contract with us, are acting in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

(3) For customers who are not consumers (specialist trade customers, e.g. traders, restaurateurs), our deviating General Terms and Conditions for Traders/Gastronomes shall apply, which can be provided on request.

§ 2 OFFER, ORDER PROCESS AND CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT

(1) The order will be processed and invoiced by Weinmanufaktur Reichsrat von Buhl GmbH, Weinstr. 18-24, 67146 Deidesheim, Germany.

(2) Order types and process:

(a) You can place your order either in writing by mail to the address Weingut Reichsrat von Buhl, Weinstr. 18-24, D-67146 Deidesheim, by fax to the fax number stated on the order form or by e-mail to our e-mail address info@von-buhl.de or in person at our salesroom or by telephone at +49 6326 9650 0. You are welcome to use our order cards and order slips.

(b) You can place your order online in our online store on our website www.von-buhl.de after registration.

- The offers of goods presented in our online store are subject to change. The presentation of the articles in our online store are only to be seen as information about the quality and do not yet represent a legally binding offer to the customer, but a non-binding invitation to the customer to order.

- By clicking the button "Add to shopping cart" the customer can put the respective goods into the virtual shopping cart. Placing the goods in the virtual shopping cart is non-binding; it does not constitute an offer to conclude a contract.

- Before placing an order, the customer is shown a summary of the contents of the shopping cart, including the expected delivery date and the shipping costs, on an overview page. First, the customer has the opportunity to change or add to the order on the overview page in the shopping cart. After clicking on "proceed to checkout", the customer is prompted to register. Existing customers with a customer account can log in with their chosen username/mail address and password.

- The customer is then asked to enter a billing address of his choice and, if necessary, to select a different delivery address. By clicking on "continue", the customer will be shown the delivery costs incurred. After another click on "next" the customer has the possibility to choose a payment method and by clicking on "next" he gets to an order overview page on which our general terms and conditions, the agreement of the cancellation policy as well as the consent to the storage of personal data have to be confirmed.

- At this point, the customer still has the option to change or leave the shopping cart.

- By placing an order via the order form of our online store provided by Weingut Reichsrat von Buhl or by pressing the button "order with obligation to pay" in the online mail order business, the customer makes a binding offer to purchase the selected goods, which requires acceptance by Weingut Reichsrat von Buhl.

- The receipt of the order is immediately confirmed to the customer electronically by an automatically generated e-mail. This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer or acceptance of the contract. The order confirmation is for information purposes only and shows the customer that we have received the customer's offer. The acceptance of the contract takes place either by sending a confirmation e-mail with the content of the purchase offer to the e-mail address provided by the customer or by the delivery of the ordered goods. At the same time, the customer receives an overview of the ordered goods together with the contract content and the order value with the confirmation e-mail.

(c) The illustration of the goods in our price list and/or in our online shipping at www.von-buhl.de may differ from the appearance of the delivered goods and does not constitute a quality guarantee or quality agreement.

(3) Only orders from customers who have reached the age of 18 can be accepted.

(4) We reserve the right to deliver goods ordered by customers via our online mail order business or in our on-site salesroom only in quantities customary for households as long as stocks last. If delivery restrictions exist, we will inform you of this before you place your order in the online store.

In this case, we will immediately inform the customer that the ordered goods are not available and to immediately refund any payments already made.

CANCELLATION POLICY FOR CONSUMERS

In accordance with the applicable statutory provisions on distance contracts, you are entitled to the following right of withdrawal:

CANCELLATION POLICY

RIGHT OF REVOCATION

You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason.

The revocation period is fourteen days from the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, has or has taken possession of the last goods.

In order to exercise your right of revocation, you must inform us (Weingut Reichsrat von Buhl GmbH, Weinstrasse 18-24, D-67146 Deidesheim, fax: +49 6326 965024, e-mail: info@von-buhl.de) by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter, fax or e-mail sent by post) of your decision to revoke this contract. For this purpose, you can use the attached sample withdrawal form, which is, however, not mandatory.

In order to comply with the revocation period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of revocation before the expiry of the revocation period.

CONSEQUENCES OF REVOCATION

If you revoke this contract, we shall reimburse you all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a type of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and no later than within fourteen days from the day on which we received the notification of your revocation of this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will you be charged any fees because of this repayment. We may refuse repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is the earlier.

You must return or hand over the goods to us without undue delay and in any case no later than within fourteen days from the day on which you notify us of the revocation of this contract. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the expiry of the period of fourteen days. You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods.

You will only have to pay for any loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is due to your handling the goods in a way that is not necessary for the inspection of the condition, properties and functioning of the goods.
