1) Scope of Application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Lukas Ye & Jiawei Xu GbR (hereinafter referred to as "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods, which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online store. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of digital content, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.3 These GTC shall apply mutatis mutandis to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.4 For the purposes of these GTC, a consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his commercial or independent professional activity.
1.5 Digital content within the meaning of these GTC is all data that is not on a physical data carrier, which is produced in digital form and provided by the seller under the granting of certain rights of use regulated in more detail in these GTC.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online store do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve for the submission of a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The Customer may submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller's online store. In doing so, 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 concludes the ordering process.
2.3 The Seller may 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 e-mail), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the Customer shall be decisive, or
by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer shall be decisive, or
by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed the order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract shall be concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of 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 shall be deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller after the conclusion of the contract and transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this.
2.6 Before submitting a binding 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 for better recognition of input errors can be the enlargement function of the browser, with the help of which the display on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries during the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contacting usually take place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct, so that e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails 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 are generally entitled to a right of revocation.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the Seller's cancellation policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices which include the statutory value added tax. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may be incurred in individual cases for which the Seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the Customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds if the delivery is not made 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 store.
4.4 If the payment method "SOFORT" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich, Germany (hereinafter "SOFORT"). In order to be able to pay the invoice amount via "SOFORT", the customer must have an online banking account that has been activated for participation in "SOFORT", must identify himself accordingly during the payment process and must confirm the payment instruction to "SOFORT". The payment transaction will be executed immediately afterwards by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account will be debited.

4.5 If a payment method offered via the payment service "Shopify Payments" is selected, payment processing is carried out via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter "Stripe"). The individual payment methods offered via Shopify Payments are communicated to the Customer in the Seller's online store. For the processing of payments, Stripe may use other payment services, for which special payment conditions may apply, to which the customer may be informed separately. Further information on "Shopify Payments" is available on the Internet at https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms-payments-de.
4.6 If the payment method "PayPal Invoice" is selected, the Seller assigns its payment claim to PayPal. Prior to accepting the Seller's declaration of assignment, PayPal shall perform a credit check using the transmitted customer data. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the payment method "PayPal invoice" in case of a negative check result. If the payment method "PayPal invoice" is permitted by PayPal, the customer must pay the invoice amount to PayPal within 30 days of receipt of the goods, unless he is given a different payment deadline by PayPal. In this case, he can only pay to PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipment, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes, even in the case of assignment of claims. In addition, the General Terms and Conditions of Use for the Use of PayPal's Purchase on Account shall apply, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/pui-terms.
4.7 If the payment method "PayPal Direct Debit" is selected, PayPal shall collect the invoice amount from the Customer's bank account after a SEPA direct debit mandate has been issued, but not before the expiry of the period for pre-notification on behalf of the Seller. Pre-notification is any communication (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) to the customer announcing a debit by SEPA Direct Debit. If the direct debit is not honored due to insufficient funds in the account or due to the provision of incorrect bank details, or if the customer objects to the direct debit even though he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the charges incurred by the respective credit institution as a result of the chargeback if he is responsible for this.
4.8 If the payment method Direct Debit via Stripe is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: "Stripe"). In this case, Stripe will collect the invoice amount from the Customer's bank account after issuing a SEPA Direct Debit Mandate, but not before the expiry of the Pre-Notification period on behalf of the Seller. Pre-notification is any communication (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) to the customer announcing a debit via SEPA Direct Debit. If the direct debit is not honored due to a lack of sufficient funds in the account or due to the provision of incorrect bank details, or if the customer objects to the direct debit even though he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the fees incurred by the respective credit institution as a result of the chargeback if he is responsible for this. The seller reserves the right to carry out a credit check when selecting the payment method SEPA direct debit and to reject this payment method in case of a negative credit check.
4.9 If the payment method credit card via Stripe is selected, the invoice amount is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract. The payment is processed via the payment service provider Stripe Payments Europe Ltd, 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Ireland (hereinafter: "Stripe").
