Any deviating terms and conditions of the Customer shall not be recognized, unless Secufy explicitly agrees to their application in writing.

A Customer is a consumer insofar that the purpose of the ordered goods and services cannot be predominantly attributed to their commercial or independent professional activity (Section 13 of the German Civil Code BGB). An entrepreneur, on the other hand, is any natural or legal person or partnership with legal capacity exercising their commercial or independent professional interests by concluding the contract.
2. Conclusion of contract
2.1 The Customer can select products from the Secufy range of products and add them to a so-called shopping cart by clicking the “Add to cart” button. By clicking the “Buy now” button, the Customer submits a binding request to purchase the goods in the shopping cart. Before submitting the order, the Customer may modify and access the data at any time.
2.2 The contract shall be formed upon Secufy issuing a declaration of acceptance, which will be sent by separate e-mail (“Order confirmation”), or by delivering goods. Secufy shall send the Customer the contract text (consisting of the order and GTC) on a durable medium (e-mail or paper copy) in the order confirmation or in a separate e-mail, or at the latest at the time of delivering the goods. The contract text shall be stored with due regard to data protection. It is not mandatory to sign up for a user account to make an order.

3.2 Should the Customer’s choice of product not be available at the time of placing the order, Secufy shall immediately notify the Customer of this situation by sending the Customer an e-mail. If the product is permanently unavailable, Secufy shall not issue a declaration of acceptance. A contract shall not be concluded in such case.
3.3 If the product specified in the Customer’s order is only temporarily unavailable, Secufy shall also immediately notify the Customer of this situation by e-mail. If delivery of the item is delayed by more than two (2) weeks, the Customer is entitled to cancel the contract. In this case, Secufy shall immediately refund any payments already made by the Customer. The Customer’s statutory right of cancelation (see. Section 9 of these GTC) shall not be affected by this. Furthermore, Secufy shall also have the right to rescind the contract in this case. In this case too, Secufy shall immediately refund any payments already made by the Customer.

Secufy is not obliged to find out if any Duties apply to the sale of goods or to collect, pay or specify such taxes.
5.3 The Customer shall be informed of the respective shipping costs at the latest during the order process. The Customer shall bear the costs of shipping, as far as they do not exercise their right of cancelation.

6.1.2 If the Customer would like to pay the invoice amount via a payment service provider such as PayPal or paydirekt, the Customer must be registered or register there if necessary, verify their identity with their access data and confirm the payment order to Secufy.

This shall not include any claims for damage compensation on the part of the Customer as a result of injury to life, body or health or on account of the violation of any essential contractual obligations (cardinal duties), as well as liability for any other damage caused by an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by Secufy, its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Essential contractual obligations shall be any such obligations whose fulfillment is essential for the fulfillment of the contract.
8.2 In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, Secufy shall only be liable for the foreseeable damage typical of the contract if such damage was caused by simple negligence, unless the Customer’s claims for damage arise from injury to life, body or health.
8.3 The restrictions of Sections 8.1 and 8.2 shall also apply in favor of the legal representatives and vicarious agents of Secufy if claims are asserted directly against them.
8.4 Statutory legal liability, for example based on the Product Liability Act, remains unaffected.
