1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") Sandscape Deutschland (hereinafter "seller") apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") with the seller with regard to the information provided by the seller in his online Shop completes the goods displayed. The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby contradicted, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 A consumer within the meaning of these terms and conditions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor their independent professional activity. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, is exercising their commercial or independent professional activity.
1.3 The subject of the contract can - depending on the seller's product description - be both the purchase of goods by way of a one-off delivery and the purchase of goods by way of a permanent delivery (hereinafter referred to as “subscription contract”). With the subscription contract, the seller undertakes to deliver the contractually owed goods to the customer for the duration of the agreed contract period at the contractually owed time intervals.
2) Conclusion of the contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer for the goods in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The customer can also submit the offer to the seller by phone or email.
2.3 The seller can 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 customer's receipt of the order confirmation is decisive, or by giving the customer delivers the ordered goods, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or by asking the customer to pay after placing his order. If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the sending of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this is deemed to be a rejection of the offer, with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract will be saved by the seller after the contract has been concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after his order has been sent. Any further provision of the contract text by the seller does not take place. If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before submitting his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
2.6 Before the binding submission of 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 representation on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries as part of the electronic ordering process using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.7 The German and English languages are available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 Order processing and contact are usually carried out by email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for processing the order is correct, so that the e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address.

These include, for example, costs for money transfer by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also arise in relation to the money transfer 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.

This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller announced the service a reasonable time in advance would have. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the shipping costs if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer exercises his right of withdrawal, the provisions made in the seller’s cancellation policy apply.

10) Applicable Law
10.1 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods.

10.2 Furthermore, with regard to the statutory right of withdrawal, this choice of law does not apply to consumers who do not belong to any member state of the European Union at the time the contract is concluded and whose sole residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
11) Place of jurisdiction
If the customer acts as a merchant, legal entity under public law or special fund under public law with its seat in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is the place of business of the seller. If the customer is based outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the seller's place of business is the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract, if the contract or claims from the contract can be attributed to the customer's professional or commercial activity. In the above cases, however, the seller is always entitled to call the court at the customer's registered office.
12) Alternative dispute resolution
12.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet under the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr
This platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts in which a consumer is involved.
12.2 The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
