The inclusion of the customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to unless agreed otherwise.

2) Conclusion of contract & offer
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the online shop and all other sales materials of the seller are not binding offers by the seller, but serve to allow the customer to make a binding offer.
2.2 The customer may submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the online shop of the seller. In this case, after the customer has placed the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and has gone through the electronic ordering process, by clicking on the button concluding the ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer in relation to the goods contained in the shopping cart. Furthermore, the customer may also submit the offer by telephone, by email, by post or by online contact form to the seller. Other terms and conditions apply if the customer has chosen the payment method PayPal or Immediate Payment; In these cases, the contract comes about with the click on “order (payment required)”.
Unless the payment method PayPal or Immediate Payment has been selected, the offer is accepted by Apotheke Zur Rose and the contract becomes effective when an order confirmation is sent to the customer or the products are dispatched or delivered to the customer. The order confirmation sent automatically by email does not constitute an order confirmation or acceptance of the customer's offer by Apotheke Zur Rose, but merely informs the customer that the order has been received.
If an ordered product is not deliverable or cannot be procured under reasonable conditions by Apotheke Zur Rose, the customer will be informed immediately and any payments made by it will be refunded.
2.3 The seller can accept the offer of the customer within a maximum of five days,
If several of the aforementioned alternatives applies, the contract is concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives first occurs. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day following the date on which the offer is sent by the customer and ends on the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer’s offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the customer is no longer bound by their declaration of intent.
2.4 The seller concludes contracts as part of its online shop or on the basis of its other sales materials with end users. Entrepreneurs are requested to contact the seller in advance before placing an order.

After sending the order, the customer will receive an email confirming the receipt of the order and providing details (order confirmation). The data for the individual orders can be viewed and printed on the website of apo-rot international in the user account (“My apo-rot”) under “My Orders”. The data is retained there so that the items can be placed directly into the shopping cart again for a new order. As long as an order is still in delivery, the shipment can be tracked there.
2.7 In the event of the use of the online order form, the customer can recognise possible input errors prior to binding submission of the order by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen.
