which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "Buyer", "You") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in the Bosch Online Shop. You can find more information about Bosch as the provider of the Bosch Online Shop in the imprint.
1.2 The goods and services offered via the Bosch online shop are primarily aimed at consumers. For the purposes of these GTC, (i) a "consumer" is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor their independent professional occupation (§ 13 BGB) and (ii) an "entrepreneur" is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding the contract, is exercising their commercial or independent professional occupation (§ 14 Par. 1 BGB).
1.3 For the business relationship between the Buyer and the Seller, these General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively in the version which is valid at the time of the order. Any deviating general terms and conditions of the Buyer or other deviating regulations or additions are not recognised - even if the Seller is aware of them - unless the Seller expressly agrees to their validity in writing.
2.1 The product descriptions in the Bosch Online Shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the Seller, but rather serve as a binding offer through the Buyer.
2.2 The Buyer can submit offers using the online order form that is integrated into the Bosch Online Shop. Once the Buyer has placed goods in the virtual shopping cart and has gone through the steps of the electronic ordering process, the Buyer agrees to a legally binding contract offer with regard to the goods in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. The Buyer has the choice of logging in with an existing MyBosch account, or creating a new MyBosch account and continuing as a registered buyer, or ordering as a guest.
2.3 Before the binding submission of the order via the Seller's online order form takes place, the Buyer will have the chance to identify possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical method for better identification of input errors is the zoom-in function of the browser, by means of which the size of the information on the screen can be enlarged. The Buyer will have the opportunity to correct his entries as part of the electronic ordering process by using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.4 The Seller will then be able to accept the Buyer's offer within a period of five days
by means of sending the Buyer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the Buyer is binding, or
by means of delivering the ordered goods to the Buyer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the Buyer is binding, or
by means of requesting payment from the Buyer after submission of his order.
In the event that several of the aforementioned alternatives are applicable, the contract shall be 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 has been sent by the Buyer and ends at the end of the fifth day following the dispatch of the offer. If the Seller does not accept the Buyer's offer within the aforementioned period, the offer will be deemed to have been rejected, and the Buyer shall no longer be bound by his declaration of intent.
2.5 If the Buyer makes his payment by selecting a payment method offered by PayPal, which can done during the online ordering process, the Seller will already have declared his acceptance of the Buyer's offer at the point in time at which the Buyer clicks the button with the label “Order with obligation to pay”.
2.6 When submitting an offer by means of 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 Buyer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the latter's order has been placed. No further provision of the contract text by the Seller shall take place.
2.7 German shall be the language used for the conclusion of the contract.
2.8 The order processing and communication shall take place via email and automated order processing. The Buyer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him to process the order is correct, so as to ensure that any e-mails sent by the Seller will be received at said address. In particular, when using spam filters, the Buyer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the Seller, or third parties commissioned by the Seller to process the order, can be delivered successfully.
3.1 Consumers have the following right of cancellation.
3.2 The right of cancellation does not apply to contracts for the delivery of goods that are not prefabricated and for the manufacture of which individual selection or specification by the consumer is decisive, or which are clearly tailored to the consumer's personal needs.
3.3 Right of cancellation
You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without providing any reason for doing so.

5.3 Collection by the Buyer is not possible for logistical reasons.
5.4 Under exceptional circumstances, the Seller shall be entitled to cancel the contract and is not obligated to deliver the goods ordered if the Seller has ordered the goods correctly but said goods were not delivered correctly or on time (congruent hedging transaction) and the Seller is furthermore not responsible for the lack of availability of the goods.

6.1 The Seller shall retain ownership of the goods until the purchase price has been paid in full.
6.2 The Buyer is obligated to handle the goods carefully until the transfer of ownership has been completed.

6.3 If the Buyer is an entrepreneur, he shall be entitled to process or combine the goods to which the Seller has reserved ownership in the course of his normal business operations. In order to secure the claims mentioned in Paragraph 1, the Seller acquires co-ownership of the products resulting from the processing or combination, which the Buyer transfers to the Seller at this point in time. The Buyer has to keep the items in the co-ownership of the Seller free of charge as a contractual secondary obligation. The amount of the co-ownership share of the Seller is determined by the ratio of the value of the goods (calculated according to the final invoice amount including VAT) and the object created by the processing or connection at the time of processing or connection. The Buyer is entitled to resell against cash payment in the ordinary course of business or with retention of ownership. The Buyer hereby assigns to the Seller all claims with ancillary rights to which he is entitled from the resale of the goods, regardless of whether the goods have been further processed or not.

due to fraudulent concealment of a defect or the assumption of a quality or durability guarantee,
in the event of negligent or willful breach of essential contractual obligations, i.e. of obligations that make the execution of the contract possible in the first place and with which the Buyer can regularly rely upon compliance, or
due to mandatory liability under the Product Liability Act.
7.3 The damage compensation for the breach of essential contractual obligations is, however, limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, insofar as there is no intent or gross negligence or liability to injury to life, body or health or the assumption of a quality or durability guarantee.
7.4 A liability for damage compensation that exceeds that specified in this Clause 7, – regardless of the legal nature of the asserted claim – excluded. This applies in particular to claims for damage compensations arising from negligence when concluding the contract, due to other breaches of duty or tortious claims for compensation for property damage in accordance with § 823 of the German Civil Code (BGB).
7.5 As far as the liability for damage compensation against the Seller is excluded, this also applies with regard to the personal liability for damages of the employees, representatives and vicarious agents of the Seller.

The Buyer is solely responsible for the procurement and acquisition of the rights to this content. The customer declares and assumes the responsibility for the fact that he has the right to use the content provided to the Seller. In particular, he shall ensure that no third party rights have been violated, in particular copyrights, trademarks and personal rights.
8.2 The Seller reserves the right to refuse processing orders if the content provided by the Buyer for this purpose violates legal or official prohibitions or is in contradiction with common decency. This applies in particular to content that is unconstitutional, racist, xenophobic, discriminatory, offensive, endangers youth and / or glorifies violence.

This does not apply if the Seller has knowledge, or is ignorant due to gross negligence, of the non-authorization, the legal incapacity or the lack of authorization of the respective owner.
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to contracts between the Seller and the Buyer to the exclusion of the UN sales law and the conflict of laws. The legal regulations for the restriction of the choice of law and for the applicability of mandatory regulations, especially of the state in which the Buyer has his habitual residence, shall remain unaffected. The choice of law does not mean that the Buyer is deprived of the protection granted to him by those provisions from which, according to the law of the state in which he has his habitual residence, may not be deviated from by agreement (favourability principle).
If the Buyer acts as a merchant, legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law located in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract shall be the Seller's place of business. If the customer is based 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, provided that the contract or claims from the contract can be attributed to the professional or commercial activity of the Buyer. In the above cases, however, the Seller is always entitled to contact the court at the Buyer's registered office by telephone.
12.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution under the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr.
