1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter “GTC”) of FreeVario (hereinafter “Seller”) apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter “Customer”) with the seller regarding the seller’s online Shop completes goods shown. We hereby object to the inclusion of the customer’s own terms, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These terms and conditions apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise expressly regulated.
1.3 A consumer in the sense of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither their commercial nor their independent professional activity. Entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership that acts in the course of a legal transaction in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop of the seller are not binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated in 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 contract offer in relation to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by phone or email.
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 access of the goods to the customer is decisive, or
• by asking the customer to pay after placing his order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the submission of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer’s offer within the aforementioned period, this is considered to be a rejection of the offer, with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller’s online order form, the contractual text is saved by the seller and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email, fax or letter) after submitting his order together with the present GTC. In addition, the text of the contract is archived on the seller’s website and can be called up free of charge by the customer via his password-protected customer account, providing the appropriate login data, provided the customer has created a customer account in the seller’s online shop before sending his order.
2.6 Before the binding submission of the order via the seller’s online order form, the customer can identify possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better detection of input errors can be the browser’s zoom function, which is used to enlarge the display on the screen. The customer can correct his entries as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract. All pages and information provided in English are only for information.
2.8 Order processing and contacting usually take place via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the email address provided by him for order processing is correct so that emails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all emails sent by the seller or by third parties commissioned with the order processing can be delivered.
3) Right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers generally have a right of withdrawal.
3.2 Further information on the right of cancellation can be found in the seller’s cancellation policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to any member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the seller’s product description, the prices quoted are total prices that include the statutory value added tax. If applicable, additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.
4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise in individual cases, which the seller is not responsible for and which are to be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs can also arise in relation to the money transfer if the delivery is not made to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.
4.3 The payment option (s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller’s online shop.
4.5 If the payment method “PayPal direct debit” is selected, PayPal will debit the invoice amount from the customer’s bank account after issuing a SEPA direct debit mandate, but not before the deadline for prior information has expired on behalf of the seller. Pre-notification is every message (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) to the customer that announces a debit by SEPA direct debit. If the direct debit is not redeemed due to insufficient account funds or due to the provision of an incorrect bank account or if the customer objects to the debit, although he is not authorized to do so, the customer must bear the fees arising from the chargeback of the respective credit institution if he is responsible for this .

5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods takes place on the way to the delivery address given by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the seller’s order processing is decisive.
5.2 If the transport company sends the goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the costs of the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller announced the service a reasonable time in advance would have. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of cancellation. If the customer effectively exercises the right of cancellation, the return shipping costs are governed by the provisions in the seller’s cancellation policy.
5.3 Pick-up is not possible for logistical reasons.
6) Retention of title
If the seller makes advance payments, he retains title to the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
7) Liability for defects (warranty)
7.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects apply.
7.2 The customer is asked to complain to the deliverer about goods delivered with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect on his legal or contractual claims for defects.
7.3 Products offered on this website have no aeronautical approval. We accept no liability for the use of these components in aircraft or other applications. All consequential damage that may arise as a result is excluded.

10) Applicable law
10.1 For all legal relationships between the parties, the law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law only applies insofar as the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer is habitually resident.
10.2 Furthermore, this choice of law does not apply to consumers who do not belong to any member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole place of residence and delivery address is outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
11) Place of jurisdiction

If the customer is based outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller’s place of business is the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract if the contract or claims arising from the contract can be attributed to the customer’s professional or commercial activity. In the above cases, however, the seller is entitled to appeal to the court at the customer’s registered office.
