3.3 Orders can only be placed by filling in and sending the online form in the online shop.
3.4 By clicking the button “order subject to payment” in the webshop, you declare to place a binding order for the goods listed in the “shopping cart”.

Your offer will become effective as soon as we have received your order. You will be bound by your offer to us for a period of 21 days from receipt of your order. We are under no obligation to accept your offer.
3.5 Upon receipt of your order, you will receive an automated acknowledgement of receipt, which does not constitute acceptance of your order.
3.6 The purchase contract will only be concluded when we send you an order confirmation to the e-mail address you have provided.

All prices are final prices in Euro (EUR or €) and include the applicable statutory VAT. The prices quoted include the shipping costs and any additional fees or charges are not included.

6.3 Regardless of which method of payment you choose, deductions – for example, fees incurred as a result of settlement through international banks – will not be accepted. You are liable for ensuring that the final invoice amount to be paid is fully, irrevocably and finally at our free disposal.
6.4 All products and goods are delivered subject to retention of title and thus remain the property of Alpin Family Gmbh, Sigmund-Thun-Straße 26, 5710 Kaprun, until full, irrevocable payment has been made.

At our request, you shall disclose the assigned claim together with its debtor and provide us with all information and documents required for the collection of the claim and notify the third-party debtor of the assignment. In the event of seizure or other claims, you are obliged to draw attention to our right of ownership and to notify us immediately.

8 Transport damages
8.1 If goods are delivered to you with obvious damage to the packaging, you are obliged to complain about this immediately to the carrier and to inform us of this.
8.2 Your claims under the statutory warranty shall remain unaffected by the fulfilment of these obligations if you have concluded the purchase contract as a consumer within the meaning of § 1 of the Consumer Protection Act.
9.1 The contractually owed quality of the products and goods, with regard to which the purchase contract is concluded, results from the descriptions, which can be taken from the respective product pages. Please note, however, that the colour and specific design on the respective product image may differ from the actual product.
9.2 If you have concluded the purchase contract as a consumer within the meaning of § 1 of the Consumer Protection Act, the following shall apply:
The general statutory warranty rules apply. Alpin Family Gmbh, Sigmund-Thun-Straße 26, 5710 Kaprun, as seller of the products and goods, therefore warrants to you by law that the products and goods sold are free from any defects and comply with the contract at the time of transfer of risk, thus in accordance with point 4.7 of these GTC at the time of transfer of the goods to you as buyer or to a third party named by you who is not the carrier. The warranty period is 2 years from the transfer of risk.
9.3 In deviation from this, the following is agreed exclusively for business transactions with entrepreneurs:
The warranty period shall be limited to one year. The warranty period shall commence at the time of the transfer of risk in accordance with clause 4.7 of these GTC, whereby you must inspect the products and goods for completeness, correctness and freedom from defects immediately upon receipt. Any defects must be reported in writing to Alpin Family Gmbh, Sigmund-Thun-Straße 26, 5710 Kaprun, stating the exact details and description of the alleged defects, including photos, without delay, at the latest within 3 days of receipt (obligation to inspect and report defects). If you do not comply with this obligation or do not comply with it in due time, there is no claim to warranty, compensation due to the defect itself or avoidance of the contract due to error about the defect-free nature of the item.
After (timely) written notification of the defect and receipt of the notice of defect, we shall examine the defect to determine whether it is justified.
If the defect complained about is to be acknowledged on the merits, you will be informed of this and we will at the same time inform you whether the defect will be remedied by replacement or improvement at our discretion. In the event of a timely notification of defects, payments may only be retained by you to such an extent as corresponds to the extent or the relationship to the defects that have occurred/are claimed.
9.4 In the case of both consumers and entrepreneurs, there is in any case no case of warranty for damage that is either due to wear and tear, unauthorised changes, the influence of third parties, improper use or treatment of the item, overuse, overvoltage or chemical influences. The same applies to normal wear and tear. In these cases, any warranty is excluded.
10 Exclusion or limitation of liability
10.1 Any contractual or non-contractual liability on our part shall only exist insofar as we or a vicarious agent employed by us have caused the damage intentionally or through gross negligence and shall thus be excluded in the case of slightly negligent conduct. This limitation of liability shall also apply in particular to such damages which represent loss of profit, indirect damages or consequential damages or which have arisen as a result of a delay in delivery for which we are responsible. This shall not affect our liability for personal injury; in this case the aforementioned limitation of liability shall not apply and we shall be liable for any culpable cause.
If you are an entrepreneur, the burden of proof for the existence of gross negligence lies with you. If you are an entrepreneur, the period for asserting claims for damages is also limited to one year from the transfer of risk in accordance with section 4.7 of these GTC.
10.2 Liability for breaches of our contractual obligations due to events of force majeure or other circumstances beyond our control (for example strikes, epidemics, etc.) is excluded.
