1.1 These Terms and Conditions of cme4u GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Seller") shall apply to all contracts concluded between an entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Client”) and the Seller relating to all goods and/or services presented in the online shop of the Seller. The inclusion of the Customer's own conditions is herewith objected to, unless other terms have been stipulated .
1.2 The present General Terms and Conditions shall also apply exclusively, if the Seller performs the order without reservation, in the knowledge that the Client’s terms and conditions may conflict with or deviate from their own.
2) Conclusion of the Contract
2.1 The product descriptions displayed in the Seller's online shop do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but are merely descriptions which allow the client to submit a binding offer
2.2 The Client may submit the offer using the online order form integrated into the Seller's online shop. By clicking the button finalizing the order process, after having placed the goods and/or services selected in the virtual shopping basket and passed through the electronic ordering process, the Client submits a legally binding offer of contract with regard to the goods and/or services contained in the shopping basket.
2.3 The Seller may accept the Client’s offer within five days in one of the following manners:
- by transmitting a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in written form (fax or e-mail) to the Client, insofar as the receipt of the order confirmation by the Client is decisive, or
- by delivering ordered goods to the Client, insofar as the receipt of goods by the Client is decisive, or
- by requesting the customer to pay after submitting his order, or
- provided direct debit payment is offered and the Client chooses this payment method, by collecting the total price directly from the Client’s account, insofar as the time of debiting the Client’s account is decisive.
The contract shall be concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs . Should the Seller not accept the Client's offer within the aforementioned period of time, this shall be deemed as rejecting the offer, with the effect that the Client is no longer bound by his statement of intent.
2.4 In case of an order via the seller's online order form, the contract text is stored and sent to the client in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the posting of his order in addition to the available General Terms and Conditions.

The Seller may allow the use of the contractual contents temporarily prior to this date. A transfer of rights does not take place via such a provisional permission.
7) Force Majeure
In cases of force majeure having an impact on the performance of the contract, the Seller is entitled to postpone the delivery for the duration of the hindrance and, in the event of a longer-term impediment, to withdraw from the contract without giving rise to claims asserted against him by the Client. The term “force majeure” shall mean any event which is unforeseeable for the Seller; or any event, even if it were foreseeable, would be beyond the control of the Seller, and whose impact on the performance of the contract could not therefore be averted despite reasonable efforts made by the Seller. Possible legal claims of the Client remain unaffected.
8) Delay in Performance
8.1 In case of delay in performance, the Client is entitled to withdraw from the contract within the framework of the statutory provisions provided that the Seller bears the responsibility of delay.

9.2 Goods under reservation of title may neither be pledged nor transferred by way of security. The Client, in his capacity as a reseller, is only allowed to resell in the normal course of business on condition that the Client’s claims against his customers arising from the resale will be assigned effectively to the Seller and the ownership of the goods will be transferred under the condition of payment. By concluding a contract, the Client assigns his claims against his customers arising from those sales to the Seller by way of security. The Seller accepts that assignment simultaneously.
9.3 The Client has to give notice to the Seller immediately, if he has access to goods belonging or co-belonging to the Seller or to claims assigned. He has to pay to the Seller any amounts assigned to the Seller he has collected, insofar as the Seller’s claims are due.
9.4 Insofar as the value of the Seller’s security rights exceeds the amount of the secured claims by more than 10%, the Seller will release a corresponding part of his security rights at the Client’s request.

- In cases of intent or gross negligence, or
- in cases of negligent or willful physical injury or negligent or willful injury of life, body or health of a person, or,
- on the grounds of a warranty promise, unless otherwise agreed,or,
- on the grounds of compulsory statutory liability as defined, for example, in the product liability law.
10.2 If the Seller has violated essential contractual obligations through negligence, his liability is limited to foreseeable damage typical of the contract, unless unlimited liability applies pursuant to section 10, para 1. Essential contractual obligations are those obligations the contract imposes on the Seller which are material to the contract and whose fulfillment makes the due performance of the contract possible and on the performance of which the Client normally relies and is intended to rely.
10.3 Otherwise, the Seller’s liability is excluded.
10.4 The aforementioned liability provisions will also apply in the case of the Seller’s liability for his assistants and legal representatives.
