1. scope, subject matter of the contract, definitions

1. For the business relationship between Universal Transmissions GmbH, Külftalstr. 18, 31093 Lübbrechtsen, (hereinafter “Provider”) and the customer (hereinafter also “Buyer”), the following General Terms and Conditions in the version valid at the time of the order shall apply exclusively.

2. These GTC apply exclusively to the sale of bicycle accessories on the website (see 2. of these GTC) (hereinafter “website”) and by e-mail (see 3. of these GTC).

3. Customers can be consumers and entrepreneurs. Consumers in the sense of § 13 BGB are natural persons who conclude the respective legal transaction for a purpose which can predominantly neither be attributed to their commercial nor their independent professional activity. In other cases, the customers are entrepreneurs according to § 14 BGB (German Civil Code).


2. conclusion of contract and order process on the website

1. Customers have the possibility to order the products offered by the supplier on the website. This process is described below.

2. The presentation of the products on the website does not constitute a legally binding offer, but rather an invitation to place an order. All offers are valid “as long as stocks last”, unless otherwise stated for the products. In all other respects, errors are reserved.

3. The customer can select products from the range of the supplier and collect them in a so-called ordering system shopping basket using the “Add to shopping basket” button. By clicking on the button “buy for a fee” he submits a binding application for the purchase of the products in the shopping basket. Before sending the order, the customer can change and view the data at any time.

4. The provider then sends the customer an automatic confirmation of receipt by e-mail, in which the customer’s order is listed again and which the customer can print out using the “Print” function (order confirmation). This automatic acknowledgement of receipt merely documents that the customer’s order has been received by the provider and does not constitute acceptance of the request. Also a possible transmission of the payment data for the purpose of the payment in advance does not represent a declaration of acceptance of the offerer.

5. The sales contract is only concluded when the supplier sends the ordered product to the customer and confirms the dispatch to the customer with a second e-mail (dispatch confirmation).

4. If the customer then places the order by e-mail, this represents a binding application to purchase the products offered.

5. The sales contract is concluded when the supplier sends the customer an order confirmation or a prepayment invoice by e-mail.


4. Retention of title

The delivered goods remain the property of the supplier until full payment has been made.
