1) Scope
1.1 These general terms and conditions (hereinafter "GTC") of Dennis Schouten, acting under "Catdesign digital print" (hereinafter "seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods with which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter "customer") the seller with regard to the goods displayed by the seller in his online shop. 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 self-employed. 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, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

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, email, post or online contact form.
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 email), whereby the customer's receipt of the order confirmation is decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, 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 point in 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.
2.4 If you choose one of the payment methods offered by PayPal, payment will be processed by the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, SCA, 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "PayPal"), subject to the PayPal Terms of Use, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua / useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the conditions for payments without a PayPal account, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax- full. If the customer pays using a payment method offered by PayPal that can be selected in the online ordering process, the seller already declares the acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer clicks the button to complete the ordering process.
2.5 If the payment method "Amazon Payments" is selected, payment will be processed by the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe sca, 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "Amazon"), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe user agreement, available at https://payments.amazon.de/help/201751590. If the customer selects “Amazon Payments” as the payment method during the online ordering process, he also issues a payment order to Amazon by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares the acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time at which the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that completes the order process.
2.6 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.
2.7 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.
2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 Order processing and contact are usually made by email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address given by him to process the order is correct, so that the 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 third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.

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 revocation, the provisions made in the seller's instructions on revocation apply.
