1) Scope of application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Schloss Burgellern Hotel Betriebs GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in its online shop. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise agreed.
1.3 These GTC apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of tickets, unless otherwise expressly regulated. These GTC only regulate the sale of tickets for certain events described in more detail in the Seller's item description and not the implementation of these events. The performance of the events shall be governed exclusively by the statutory provisions in the relationship between the participant and the organiser and, if applicable, by any terms and conditions of the organiser that deviate from these. Insofar as the Seller is not also the organiser, it shall not be liable for the proper conduct of the event, for which the respective organiser shall be exclusively responsible.
1.4 These GTC shall apply accordingly to contracts for the provision of digital content, unless otherwise agreed. Digital content within the meaning of these GTC is data that is created and provided in digital form.
1.5 A consumer within the meaning of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.
1.6 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.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online shop 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 can submit the offer via the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping basket and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping basket by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the customer may also submit the offer to the seller by telephone, fax, e-mail or post.
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), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after placing his 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 dispatch of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.4 When an offer is made 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's order has been sent. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this. If the customer has set up a user account in the Seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the Seller's website and can be accessed by the customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.5 Before bindingly placing the 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.
2.6 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.7 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 revocation
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the Seller's instructions on withdrawal.
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.
3.4 Unless otherwise agreed, a right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts for the provision of services in connection with leisure activities if the contract provides for a specific date or period for the provision. Accordingly, a right of withdrawal is also excluded in the case of contracts which have as their object the sale of tickets for scheduled leisure events.
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, further 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 shop.
4.4 If prepayment by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.5 If the payment method "SOFORT" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (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 is then immediately carried out by "SOFORT" and the customer's bank account is debited. More information on the "SOFORT" payment method is available to the customer on the Internet at https://www.klarna.com/sofort/ retrieve.
4.6 If the payment method purchase on account is selected, the purchase price shall become due after the goods have been delivered and invoiced. In this case, the purchase price shall be paid within 7 (seven) days of receipt of the invoice without deduction, unless otherwise agreed. The Seller reserves the right to offer the payment method purchase on account only up to a certain order volume and to reject this payment method if the specified order volume is exceeded. In this case, the seller will inform the customer of a corresponding payment restriction in his payment information in the online shop.
4.7 If the SEPA direct debit payment method is selected, the invoice amount shall be due for payment after a SEPA direct debit mandate has been issued, but not before the expiry of the deadline for the advance information. The direct debit shall be collected when the ordered goods leave the Seller's warehouse, but not before expiry of the deadline for the advance information. Pre-notification is any communication (e.g. invoice, policy, contract) from the seller to the customer announcing a debit by SEPA Direct Debit. If the direct debit is not honoured 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 fees incurred by the respective credit institution as a result of the chargeback if he is responsible for this.
4.8 If the payment method "PayPal Direct Debit" is selected, PayPal will 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 pre-notification period 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 honoured 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 fees incurred by the respective credit institution as a result of the chargeback if he is responsible for this.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 If the Seller offers to ship the goods, delivery shall be made within the delivery area specified by the Seller to the delivery address specified by the Customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the Seller's order processing shall be decisive.
5.2 If the delivery of the goods fails for reasons for which the customer is responsible, the customer shall bear the reasonable costs incurred by the seller as a result. This does not apply with regard to the costs for the return shipment if the customer effectively exercises his right of revocation. In the event of an effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision made in the seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the costs of returning the goods.
5.3 If the customer is acting as an entrepreneur, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall pass to the customer as soon as the seller has delivered the goods to the forwarding agent, the carrier or any other person or institution designated to carry out the shipment. If the customer is acting as a consumer, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods sold shall in principle only pass to the customer or a person authorised to receive the goods when the goods are handed over to the customer. In deviation from this, the risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the sold goods shall also pass to the customer in the case of consumers as soon as the seller has delivered the item to the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment if the customer commissions the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment to carry out the shipment and the seller has not previously named this person or institution to the customer.
5.4 The Seller reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of incorrect or improper self-delivery. This shall only apply in the event that the seller is not responsible for the non-delivery and the seller has concluded a specific covering transaction with the supplier with due diligence. The Seller shall make all reasonable efforts to procure the goods. In the event of non-availability or only partial availability of the goods, the customer will be informed immediately and the consideration will be refunded without delay.
5.5 If the Seller offers the goods for collection, the Customer may collect the ordered goods within the business hours specified by the Seller at the address specified by the Seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.

6.2 A transfer of the contents to third parties or the creation of copies for third parties outside the scope of these GTC is not permitted unless the Seller has agreed to a transfer of the contractual licence to the third party.
6.3 Insofar as the contract relates to the one-time provision of digital content, the granting of rights shall only become effective when the customer has paid the remuneration owed in full. The Seller may provisionally permit the use of the contractual content even before this point in time. Such provisional permission shall not constitute a transfer of rights.
7) Retention of title
If the seller makes an advance payment, he shall retain title to the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
8) Liability for defects (warranty)

- for goods which have been used in accordance with their customary use for a building and have caused its defectiveness,
- for any existing obligation of the seller to provide updates for digital products, in the case of contracts for the supply of goods with digital elements.
8.4 Furthermore, for entrepreneurs, the statutory limitation periods for any statutory right of recourse shall remain unaffected.
8.5 If the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of § 1 of the German Commercial Code (HGB), he shall be subject to the commercial duty of inspection and notification of defects pursuant to § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). If the customer fails to comply with the notification obligations regulated therein, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved.
8.6 If the customer is acting as a consumer, he is requested to complain about delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the deliverer and to inform the seller of this. If the customer does not comply with this, this shall have no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.

12) Place of jurisdiction
If the customer acts as a merchant, legal entity under public law or special fund under public law with registered office in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is the registered office of the seller. If the customer is domiciled outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller's place of business shall be the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract if the contract or claims arising from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. In the aforementioned cases, however, the Seller shall in any case be entitled to appeal to the court at the Customer's place of business.
