§4 Conclusion of contract and reservation of title
The description of products and presentation of goods on the kristinkossi.com website in the course of sales campaigns does not constitute a legally binding offer, but merely an invitation to private customers to order goods or services. There is no legal claim to the availability and deliverability of the products advertised. Sales campaigns are only directed at consumers within the meaning of § 13 of the BGB, i.e. any natural person concluding a legal transaction for a purpose that cannot be ascribed either to their commercial or independent professional activities. Only the normal volume required by a household may be ordered. kristinkossi.com reserves the right in due course to make orders under sales campaigns subject to fulfillment of certain individual conditions. To order a product advertised by kristinkossi.com, you must take the following steps: Either send us an email with inquiry of your product or if allowed place an article in the basket. Enter the delivery and payment information. Actively agree to the General Terms and Conditions and the Cancellation Policy. Send your order by pressing the “Place Order” button. By forwarding your online order, you are making kristinkossi.com an offer to conclude a legally binding contract. By clicking on the “Place Order” button, you are placing a binding order for the goods in the basket, confirming that you are authorised to place such an order, i.e. minors must have the permission of their legal representatives. Immediately on receipt of your order, you will receive an automated e-mail in which the receipt of your offer will be confirmed, thus concluding the contract. All goods remain the property of kristinkossi.com until full payment of the purchase price has been received and all claims resulting from the sale have been settled. You will not be entitled to dispose of the goods before transfer of ownership. If third parties should institute claims for the goods, you are obliged to inform kristinkossi.com immediately. If, before concluding the contract, kristinkossi.com finds that the ordered product is not available, we will immediately inform you about this and reimburse any payments already received. kristinkossi.com is entitled to reject any offers made by you without citing reasons. kristinkossi.com particularly reserves the right to reject an offer where: the delivery address is outside shipping countries we operate; there are indications that the person ordering the goods is not a consumer; an order exceeds the normal volume required by a household; the payment is not received, even after a reminder has been sent and a payment period stipulated.
§ 5 Use of the kristinkossi.com
5.1 kristinkossi.com offers the services solely within the framework of the acknowledged state of technology. kristinkossi.com may restrict the services where this is required owing to capacity limits, the security or integrity of the server or to carry out technical activities to provide for or to improve existing services (maintenance work). For technical reasons in particular, it may sometimes not be possible to make full use of the services (unforeseen system failures). 5.2 It is prohibited to use the services in a manner that violates statutory obligations, the rights of third parties or public morals. It is furthermore prohibited to make use of the services in a manner that constitutes abuse or that may adversely affect the reputation of kristinkossi.com.

Nor does kristinkossi.com generally verify other websites that can be reached by clicking on the kristinkossi.com website, thus no responsibility can be taken for the form, accuracy, appropriateness or quality of such content. kristinkossi.com will remove or suppress any content uploaded by third parties or refuse to provide links if kristinkossi.com should find that there is any indication that the content uploaded or other websites might infringe the law or violate these GTCs.
§ 6 Inviting friends, product and sales campaign recommendations
6.1 Members can invite other friends to join kristinkossi.com on the kristinkossi.com website. Members also have the option of recommending sales campaigns or individual products to third parties by e-mail. 6.2 Members undertake to forward newsletters, sales campaigns and product recommendations only to the e-mail addresses of existing, living natural persons who have previously expressed an interest in this regard and who have explicitly consented to receive the corresponding e-mail. In the event of a dispute, a corresponding written statement in this regard will be required.
§ 7 Promotional coupons
The following conditions apply to kristinkossi.com promotional coupons (and mutatis mutandis kristinkossi.com credit balances): kristinkossi.com coupons for goods can be redeemed for all products uploaded on the kristinkossi.com website unless the redemption of kristinkossi.com coupons has been excluded on the campaign overview or product overview page or unless the campaign involves ordering via the website of a third party; such is expressly indicated in either instance. The purchase price of the products ordered must at least equal the value of the coupon, unless otherwise indicated at the time the coupon is issued. kristinkossi.com coupons for freight costs can be redeemed against the freight costs incurred when ordering products on the kristinkossi.com website, unless the redemption of kristinkossi.com coupons has been excluded on the campaign overview or product overview page or unless the campaign involves ordering via the website of a third party. Promotional coupons are provided in the form of codes made available to you personally. Usually, codes expire once they have been used. The period of validity and/or minimum order value or other conditions are determined by kristinkossi.com and announced as part of the corresponding promotion. In this case, the minimum order value refers to the purchase price, including value-added tax. Freight costs are not taken into account. Only one kristinkossi.com coupon can be used per order and several kristinkossi.com coupons may not be combined. If you cancel the purchase of an item for which you have used a kristinkossi.com coupon, the coupon amount will not be reimbursed and the coupon cannot be used again. This does not apply if you have obtained the kristinkossi.com coupon directly from kristinkossi.com against payment. You cannot acquire a kristinkossi.com coupon using a kristinkossi.com coupon that you have not directly obtained against a monetary payment. kristinkossi.com coupons cannot be paid out in cash or attract interest. kristinkossi.com coupons are personally issued to a member and cannot be transferred to third parties. Where kristinkossi.com becomes aware of the transfer of a coupon, kristinkossi.com reserves the right to declare the corresponding coupon invalid. Where kristinkossi.com has indicated that the coupon is valid only for new customers, such a coupon will only be issued when a person registers as a member of kristinkossi.com for the first time. With the exception of a loss of a coupon for which kristinkossi.com is responsible, kristinkossi.com does not accept liability for the loss or theft of any coupon. Replacement coupons are only issued when kristinkossi.com is liable for the loss of the coupon. The shop regulations may contain further conditions or restrictions for the redemption of promotion coupons; alternatively such conditions or restrictions may be indicated when issuing the coupon.
§ 8 Warranty and liability
8.1 The warranty is governed in principle by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. In the event of a defect in goods you therefore have the legal right to have it remedied (delivery of non-defective goods), to cancel the contract or to receive a price reduction. 8.2 Jkristinkossi.com’s liability in damages towards consumers is limited. Notwithstanding the nature of the loss or damage, liability in damages is excluded unless provided to the contrary below. kristinkossi.com only has statutory liability where you assert claims in damages that are based on intent or gross negligence, including intent or gross negligence on the part of our representatives or agents. kristinkossi.com only has statutory liability where kristinkossi.com is in culpable breach of a significant contractual obligation. A significant contractual obligation for this purpose is one the fulfilment of which is essential to the due performance of the contract and on compliance with which you are generally entitled to rely. kristinkossi.com also only has statutory liability in the case of culpable death, personal injury or damage to health; this also applies to mandatory liability under the Product Liability Act. 8.3 The same limits on liability in damages towards consumers apply to companies that directly or indirectly participate in sales campaigns contrary to § 4, with the further proviso that liability in damages is limited to foreseeable loss or damage typical of the contract except in the case of liability for wilful acts or for death, personal injury or damage to health. 8.4 The aforementioned liability exclusions and limitations with regard to companies or consumers do not apply where kristinkossi.com has given explicit guarantees.
