1) Scope

1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter “Terms and Conditions”) of Autohaus Mahler GmbH   (hereinafter "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online shop www.online-parts.co.uk/suzuki-spare-parts. The inclusion of the customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.

1.2 These terms and conditions apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless something different is expressly stipulated.

1.3 Consumer within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that cannot predominantly be attributed to either their commercial or independent professional activity. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these General Terms and Conditions is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

2) Conclusion of contract

2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the seller, but are used to make a binding offer by the customer.

2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated into the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that completes the ordering process.

2.3 The seller can accept the customer's offer within five days,

  • by sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or email), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
  • by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive
or
  • by asking the customer to pay after placing their order.  

If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the sending of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this is deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the result that the customer is no longer bound to his declaration of intent.

2.4  If you select a payment method offered by PayPal, payment is processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: “PayPal”), subject to the PayPal Terms of Use, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua /useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the conditions for payments without a PayPal account, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax- full. If the customer pays using a payment method offered by Paypal that can be selected in the online ordering process, he also places a payment order to PayPal by clicking the button that completes the ordering process.

2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text is saved by the seller after the contract has been concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. email) after the order has been sent , fax or letter). The seller will not make the contract text available beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.

2.6 Before submitting the order via the seller's online order form, the customer can identify possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means of better detecting input errors can be the browser's magnification function, which enlarges the display on the screen. As part of the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that completes the ordering process.

2.7 Only the German language is available for concluding the contract.

2.8 Order processing and contact usually take place via email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the email address he provided to process the order is correct so that emails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all emails sent by the seller or by third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.

3) Right of withdrawal

3.1 Consumers generally have a right of withdrawal.

3.2 More information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the seller's cancellation policy.

4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise in individual cases for which the seller is not responsible and which must be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money through credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may arise in relation to the money transfer even if the delivery does not take place to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.

4.3 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the customer in the seller's online shop.

4.4 If advance payment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.

4.5 If you select the payment method “PayPal Credit” (payment in installments via PayPal), the seller assigns his payment claim to PayPal. Before accepting the seller's declaration of assignment, PayPal will carry out a credit check using the customer data provided. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the payment method “PayPal Credit” in the event of a negative check result. If the payment method “PayPal Credit” is permitted by PayPal, the customer must pay the invoice amount to PayPal under the conditions specified by the seller, which are communicated to him in the seller’s online shop. In this case, he can only make payments to PayPal with a debt-discharging effect. However, even in the event of the assignment of claims, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. B. about the goods, delivery time, shipping, returns, complaints, cancellation declarations and shipments or credit notes.
