2) CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to provide a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button concluding the ordering process.
2.3 The seller can accept the customer's offer within five days,
by sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
by requesting the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the sending of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
