Consumer Agreement - is a purchase agreement if the Contracting Parties are the consumer as the Buyer, on the one hand, and the Seller, on the other hand.
Our online store Customer is the Buyer. Due to the applicable legal regulation, a distinction is made between a Buyer who is a consumer and a Buyer who is not a consumer.
Buyer - Consumer - a person who, as a Buyer, does not act within the scope of their business or other entrepreneurial activity when concluding and fulfilling an agreement. This is a natural person who buys products or uses services for a purpose other than doing business with those products or services.
Buyer - Entrepreneur - A Buyer who is not a consumer but an entrepreneur who buys products or uses services for the purpose of their business with these products or services. This Buyer complies with the Terms and Conditions to the extent that apply thereto and the Civil Code. Buyer - Entrepreneur may open their user account with the Seller by registering. Discounted prices may subsequently be linked to the account. It is possible for the Seller to cancel the user account at any time.
Purchase Agreement - by placing an offer to sell goods on the website, the Seller expresses their will to enter into a Purchase Agreement for the goods, or services under the given conditions. The Purchase Agreement is formed at the moment the Seller confirms the Buyer's order. As of this moment, mutual rights and obligations arise between the Buyer and Seller, which are defined by the Purchase Agreement and Terms and Conditions, and that are an integral part of this Agreement.
