3. Offer and Contract Conclusion

3.1 The presentation of the products in our online shop does not constitute a legally binding offer, but merely an invitation to place orders. Unless indicated otherwise for the products, all offers are subject to availability. Errors excepted.

3.2 By clicking the "Submit Order" button in the last step of the order process, you place a binding order for the goods in the shopping cart. A purchase contract will come about if we accept your order with an order confirmation by e-mail immediately after receiving your order.

3.3. Linde Eckstein GmbH + Co. KG reserves the right to reject the fulfilment of a customer’s order, if the order seems abnormal, exaggerated or in case it might violate the provisions of the terms and conditions.

4. Customer registration

4.1. New customer registration is free of charge and possible starting from the age of 18 years. By clicking the “Register“ button the customer acknowledges acceptance of these terms and conditions as well as his/her age of legal maturity. The registration requires that all personal information entered is true and complete. Linde Eckstein GmbH + Co. KG is authorized to exclude persons from the registration for justifiable reasons, as for example the violation of the registration terms, a previous exclusion because of non-compliance with the registration terms, double or multiple registration using different e-mail addresses, undue influence by third parties, manipulation etc. In such cases, gifts, other free additions or offers connected with the new customer registration, can subsequently be denied and reclaimed.

4.2. Linde Eckstein GmbH + Co. KG reserves the right to change the registration terms or to discontinue the registration process completely or partially for a serious reason without prior notice at any time. This applies in particular if circumstances arise that may interfere with or prevent the registration process, as for example in case of manipulations or manipulation attempts that affect the regular and proper execution of the registration. If an interruption or termination is due to the behavior of the new customer, Linde Eckstein GmbH & Co. KG shall be entitled to demand compensation from the new customer for any damage incurred as a result.

If you cancel this contract, we will without delay refund all payments we have received from you, including the shipping costs (except for any additional costs in case you chose a shipment method other than the most inexpensive standard shipment offered by us), at the latest within 14 days from the date on which we received the notice of your cancellation of this contract. For this refund, we will use the same payment method that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise; by no means will we charge you for any refund fees.
