In the following, the term “EGO Movement” refers to EGO Movement Stuttgart GmbH. 

 

  1. These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") apply to all services of the EGO Movement Shop, regardless of whether the Customers are consumers, business owners or merchants. Any deviating general terms and conditions of the Customer shall not be recognised unless EGO Movement expressly consents to their application in writing.

 

  1. A Consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are largely not attributable to his or her commercial or independent professional activity (Section 13 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, BGB)).

2. Conclusion of the Contract

The following rules apply to orders placed via our web shop (www.egomovement.de).

  1. By displaying goods in our online shop, we are not making a legally binding offer to conclude a contract for the sale of the items.

  2. The Customer places a legally binding order if he or she successfully completes the order procedure described below.

  3. We will immediately confirm receipt of your contractual offer with an automatically generated email. This email does not constitute binding acceptance of the offer.

  4. Once we have sent the invoice to the Customer, a contract of sale is formed. The automatic order confirmation from the shop does not constitute acceptance of the order.

  5. The Customer shall be informed of the shipment of the goods by separate email (shipping confirmation). The contract text (consisting of the order, GTC and order confirmation) shall be sent to the Customer on a durable data carrier (email or hard copy) (contract confirmation) no later than together with this shipping confirmation. The text of the contract will be stored in a manner that safeguards data protection.

  6. EGO Movement is entitled to make the conclusion of the contract subject to a positive credit check with [Service provider creditworthiness] and to conduct such a credit check at any time to the extent permitted under data protection law. In the process, EGO Movement will process the Customers' personal data. In such cases, EGO Movement will perform a credit check without separate consent only if this is in its overriding legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(f) of the EU GDPR, which applies particularly in the case of delivery against invoice because of the associated risk of default. For the purpose of the credit check, EGO Movement shall send the Customer’s name and contact details to [Service provider creditworthiness]. Information on how [Service provider creditworthiness] processes the transmitted data is available at [www.XXX.de]; this information constitutes unilateral information from [Service provider creditworthiness] pursuant to Art. 14 EU GDPR and does not form part of the contract.

  7. Orders may be placed no more than 10 days before the desired delivery date. EGO Movement is at liberty to refuse to accept an order – for whatever reason – and to refuse to conclude the contract.

  8. Order process:

  1. Select the desired product

  2. Confirm by clicking on the “Add to Basket” button

  3. Review Basket

  4. Click on the “Proceed to Checkout” button

  5. Enter personal details and select the desired payment method

  6. Before sending us an order, the Customer can change and view the data at any time.

  7. Submit a binding order by clicking on the “Place your Order” button

By placing the order, the Customer confirms the accuracy of all information provided by him or her.

3. Prices, Shipping Costs, Due Date and Payment

  1. The prices indicated in the online shop are in euro and include the statutory value-added tax and other price components. Any shipping costs may be added and will be displayed in the online shop.

  2. The prices displayed on the website at www.egomovement.de at the time of the order shall apply.

  3. Different payment methods are available depending on the product line and the type of shipment. The Customer shall be informed of the available payment methods at the latest at the beginning of the order process. EGO Movement is in any event entitled to decide at its own discretion which means of payment it will offer in each specific individual case.

  4. If, when placing the order, a Customer is in default in paying previous invoice amounts or if his or her personal credit limit has been exceeded, the payment method “by invoice” will not be available.

  5. For legal entities, the payment type “by invoice” is only available upon written request. 

  6. Invoices shall be sent electronically after delivery if possible, and otherwise by post, to the default address indicated by the Customer, or they shall be attached directly to the delivery of goods. 

  7. Invoices must be paid within 10 days without any deductions or other discounts. Unauthorised deductions shall be debited subsequently. 

  8. In the event of payment default, EGO Movement shall be entitled to instruct third parties to collect outstanding payments and to assign claims to third parties in Germany and abroad. 

4. Delivery

  1. Goods shall be delivered directly to the delivery address and contact person provided by the Customer. Goods may also be collected from an EGO Movement site.

  2. Depending on the product line and the place of delivery, the delivery shall be carried out by the personal delivery service of EGO Movement or through various services of its delivery partners. Delivery shall be made to private individuals' apartment doors and to corporate clients' reception area / front desk to the extent such locations are accessible.

4.1 Delivery times and compliance with delivery deadlines

  1. Delivery times indicated in the online shop are calculated from the time the order is confirmed. Delivery of the ordered goods shall, however, only take place as soon as payment of the full purchase price and any EGO Movement shipping costs has been received. Unless a specific or different delivery time is indicated for the respective goods in the online shop, it shall be between 5 and 7 working days for mainland deliveries. Delivery times for islands may differ.

  2. If, at the time of the Customer’s order, the product selected by the Customer is out of stock, EGO Movement shall promptly inform the Customer to this effect in the order confirmation. If the product is permanently unavailable, EGO Movement will decline acceptance of the order. In such case, no contract is deemed to have been formed.

  3. Delivery shall be made via DHL or DPD.

  4. If EGO Movement or our delivery partner is unable to deliver an order confirmed by EGO Movement or the delivery partner due to circumstances that are not acceptable to EGO Movement or our delivery partner, a second delivery date shall be agreed. The additional costs incurred in this respect shall be borne by the Customer unless the latter is not responsible for this. 

4.2 Delivery fees

  1. The corresponding delivery fees shall be indicated to the Customer in the order form and shall be borne by the Customer unless he or she exercises his or her right of cancellation.

  2. The amount of the delivery fee depends on the type of delivery, the order value (less any coupons/discounts) and the order frequency. Depending on the product line and type of delivery, a minimum order value may apply.

  3. If products are purchased at the same time using different shipping methods, multiple delivery fees may be charged. Shopping baskets with different shipping methods are shown separately during the order process.

4.3 Delivery processing

5. Reservation of Title

The ordered items will remain our property until the full purchase price has been paid.

Exceptions to the right of cancellation are set out in paragraph (2). Paragraph (3) contains a sample cancellation form.
