§ 1 - Scope of application
(1) These terms and conditions of Mr. Gerhard Beilharz (hereinafter referred to as "seller") shall apply to all sales, deliveries and services of the seller which the customer buys from the seller via the online shop at www.edition-zwischentoene.de. The inclusion of conditions of the customer is contradicted, unless the parties have expressly agreed otherwise.
(2) "customers" means both consumers and entrepreneurs, whereby a consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes which can not be predominantly attributed to either his commercial or self-employed occupation. On the other hand, an entrepreneur is any natural or legal person or a legal person who is acting in the exercise of his independent professional or commercial activity when a legal transaction is concluded.

§ 2 - Conclusion of contract
(1) The product offers of the seller merely represent an invitation to the customer to make a purchase offer. The customer issues a binding purchase offer against the seller by concluding the order process. Acceptance of this purchase offer by the seller only takes place by means of a separate declaration of acceptance or payment request within 48 hours after receipt of the purchase offer.
(2) The ordering process by the customer begins by inserting a product into the shopping cart using the "Add to basket" button on the product details page.
If the customer has filled his personal shopping basket with the desired products, he can continue his order process via the button "Display basket", in the upper menu bar.
In the shopping basket, the customer first has the possibility to change the order quantity by specifying the desired number and the actuation of the button "Update" or by pressing the "Enter" key or delete a product from the shopping cart.
After pressing the button "Checkout", the customer enters the next order step.
If the customer has previously registered for the seller's online store, he can continue his order by entering his e-mail address and the corresponding password entered in the "Sign in for registered customers" field.
If the customer is not yet registered, he can either create a customer account  in the field "Order and register as customer" or use the "Order without registering" field to execute the order without opening a customer account. In both cases the customer subsequently stores his personal data and confirms this with the "Next" button.
In the next order step, the customer can first select a shipping method offered by the seller. The desired shipping method is selected by clicking on the "click" button and confirming with the "Next" button. Subsequently, the customer can choose a payment method offered by the seller. The selection is made by the customer by activating the respective method of payment by a "click". After confirming the payment method with the "Next" button, the customer is in his order overview.
He can make any corrections to the entered data which the customer wishes to make, in the respective input mask, which he reaches via the page menu, which is always available in the ordering process, in the upper bar.
Before the customer can make a binding declaration of the contract by means of the button "Buy now", he must confirm the acknowledgment of his right of revocation and consent to the terms and conditions of the seller. For this purpose, the customer must confirm: "I have read and accepted the general terms and conditions. I have been informed of my right of revocation."

(3) Purchase processing and contact are made by e-mail with the help of the automated purchase processing software. The customer must therefore ensure that the e-mail address specified by him for the purchase processing is correct so that the correspondence can be made. In the case of the use of spam filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or his purchase processing service providers are received for the purchase process.

§ 3 - Contract storage
In the confirmation of the order the customer receives his order data, as well as the GTC-customer information and the revocation instruction together with the standard withdrwal form by e-mail. The seller does not make any further backups of the contract text after conclusion of the contract. This means that the customer himself must be prompted to make long-lasting backups of the offer (eg by means of a screenshot).

§ 4 - Prices
The prices stated by the seller include all price components. Due to the small business status according to § 19 UStG, the seller does not charge VAT and therefore does not disclose it separately. The packaging and shipping costs are shown separately for each product offer or via the link "Shipping". Other price components, e.g. further taxes, duties or other charges, may be incurred for cross-border deliveries.

§ 5 - Terms of payment
Payments can be made as follows:

- Payment by PayPal
