1) Scope of application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of Mia Mueller (hereinafter referred to as "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods, which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") concludes with the Seller regarding the goods presented by the Seller in his online store. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC shall apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.3 These GTC shall apply mutatis mutandis to contracts for the delivery of tickets, unless otherwise expressly agreed. In this context, these GTC only regulate the sale of tickets for certain events described in more detail in the Seller's item description and not the performance of these events. The execution of the events shall be governed exclusively by the statutory provisions in the relationship between the customer and the organizer and, if applicable, by any terms and conditions of the organizer deviating therefrom. If the seller is not also the organizer, he is not liable for the proper execution of the event, for which the respective organizer is exclusively responsible.
1.4 A consumer in the sense of these GTC is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. An entrepreneur within the meaning of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his commercial or self-employed professional activity.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online store do not constitute binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve for the submission of a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The Customer may submit the offer via the online order form integrated into the Seller's online store. In doing so, after placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the goods contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.3 The Seller may 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), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer shall be decisive, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which case the receipt of the goods by the customer shall be decisive, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed the order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract shall be concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer sends the offer 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 shall be deemed to be a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the Customer shall no longer be bound by its declaration of intent.
2.5 When submitting an offer via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract shall be stored by the Seller and sent to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order together with these General Terms and Conditions. However, the text of the contract can no longer be retrieved by the customer via the seller's website after the order has been sent.
2.6 Before submitting a binding 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 display on the screen is enlarged. The customer can correct his entries during 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 The order processing and contacting usually take place via e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct, so that 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 by third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
3) Right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of revocation.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of withdrawal can be found in the Seller's cancellation policy.
3.3 The right of withdrawal does not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
3.4 Pursuant to Section 312g (2) No. 9 of the German Civil Code (BGB), unless otherwise agreed, a right of revocation shall not apply to contracts for the provision of services in connection with leisure activities if the contract provides for a specific date or period for the provision of such services. Accordingly, a right of revocation is also excluded in the case of contracts for the sale of tickets for scheduled leisure events.
4) Prices and terms of payment
4.1 Unless otherwise stated in the Seller's product description, the prices quoted are total prices. Sales tax is not shown, as the seller is a small business in the sense of the UStG. Any additional delivery and shipping costs will be indicated separately in the respective product description.
4.2 In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may be incurred in individual cases for which the Seller is not responsible and which are to be borne by the Customer. These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money by credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds 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.
4.3 The payment option(s) will be communicated to the Customer in the Seller's online store.
4.4 If payment in advance by bank transfer has been agreed, payment shall be due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
4.5 In the case of payment by means of a payment method offered by PayPal, the payment shall be processed via the payment service provider PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "PayPal"), subject to the PayPal terms and conditions of use, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full or - if the customer does not have a PayPal account - subject to the terms and conditions for payments without a PayPal account, which can be viewed at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
5.1 The delivery of goods is made by shipping to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. When processing the transaction, the delivery address specified in the Seller's order processing shall be decisive. Deviating from this, if the payment method PayPal is selected, the delivery address deposited by the customer with PayPal at the time of payment shall be decisive.
5.2 If the transport company returns the shipped goods to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer shall bear the costs for the unsuccessful shipment. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery or if the customer was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller had given the customer reasonable advance notice of the service. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the Hinsendung if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. In the case of effective exercise of the right of revocation by the customer, the provision made in this regard in the seller's revocation instructions shall apply to the return costs.
5.3 In the event of self-collection, the Seller shall first inform the Customer by e-mail that the goods ordered by him are ready for collection. After receipt of this e-mail, the customer can pick up the goods at the seller's headquarters after consultation with the seller. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.

10) Applicable Law
10.1 All legal relationships between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the laws on the international sale of movable goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
10.2 Furthermore, this choice of law with regard to the statutory right of withdrawal shall not apply to consumers who do not belong to a Member State of the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract and whose sole place of residence and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time of conclusion of the contract.
