Terms and conditions
1. Scope of application
For all orders via our online shop by consumers and entrepreneurs, the following terms and conditions apply.
A consumer is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can predominantly neither be attributed to his commercial nor his self-employed professional activity. Entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity which acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
In relation to entrepreneurs, these GTC shall also apply to future business relations without our having to refer to them again. If the entrepreneur uses conflicting or supplementary general terms and conditions, their validity is hereby contradicted; they only become part of the contract if we have expressly agreed to them.
2. Contractual partner, conclusion of contract
The purchase contract is concluded with OPC Optical Precision Components Europe GmbH.
By placing the products in the online shop we make a binding offer to conclude a contract for these articles. You may initially place our products in the shopping basket without obligation and correct your entries at any time before submitting your binding order by using the correction aids provided and explained in the order process. The contract is concluded by clicking on the order button to accept the offer for the goods contained in the shopping basket. Immediately after sending the order, you will receive another confirmation by e-mail.
3. Contract language, contract text storage

4. Terms of delivery
In addition to the indicated product prices there are shipping costs. You can find out more about the shipping costs in the offers.
We deliver only in the dispatch way. A self-collection of the product is unfortunately not possible.
The following payment methods are available to you in our shop:
If you choose the payment method prepayment, we will give you our bank details in a separate e-mail and deliver the goods after receipt of payment.
As part of the PayPal Plus payment service, we offer you various payment methods as PayPal services. You will be redirected to the website of the online provider PayPal. There you can enter your payment data, confirm the use of your data by PayPal and the payment order to PayPal.
If you have chosen the payment method PayPal, you have to be registered there in order to pay the invoice amount, or you have to register first and legitimize with your access data. The payment transaction is carried out automatically by PayPal immediately after confirmation of the payment order. You will receive further information during the ordering process.
If you have chosen the payment method credit card, you do not have to be registered with PayPal to be able to pay the invoice amount. The payment transaction will be executed by your credit card company upon PayPal's request immediately after confirmation of the payment order and after your legitimation as legitimate cardholder and your card will be debited. You will receive further information during the ordering process.
6. Retention of title
The goods remain our property until full payment has been made.
For entrepreneurs, the following also applies: We reserve title to the goods until full payment of all claims arising from an ongoing business relationship. You may resell the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business; you assign to us in advance all claims arising from this resale - irrespective of any combination or mixing of the reserved goods with a new item - in the amount of the invoice amount, and we accept this assignment. You remain authorised to collect the claims, but we may also collect claims ourselves if you do not meet your payment obligations.
7. Transport damages
If goods with obvious transport damage are delivered, please complain such errors as soon as possible to the deliverer and contact us immediately. Failure to make a complaint or contact us will not have any consequences for your legal claims and their enforcement, in particular your warranty rights. However, you help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.
8. Warranty and guarantees
The statutory liability for defects shall apply. Information on any additional guarantees that may apply and their exact conditions can be found with the product and on special information pages in the online shop.
9. Dispute settlement
The European Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution (OS), which you can find here: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
We are not obliged or prepared to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration body.
10. Final provisions
If you are an entrepreneur, German law shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
If you are a merchant within the meaning of the German Commercial Code, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from contractual relationships between us and you shall be our place of business.
