1) Scope
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of MIRKADA Jewelry (hereinafter referred to as "Seller") shall apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods which a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") concludes with the Seller with regard to the goods presented by the Seller in his online shop. The inclusion of the Customer's own terms and conditions is hereby objected to, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 These GTC apply accordingly to contracts for the delivery of vouchers, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.3 A consumer in the sense of these General Terms and Conditions 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 shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the Seller, but are used for the submission of a binding offer by the Customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer via the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. 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 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 e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive in this respect, or
- by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive in this respect, or
- by requesting payment from the customer after the customer has placed his order.
If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, 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 customer sends the offer and ends with the expiry 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 his declaration of intent.
2.4 If the payment method "PayPal Express" is selected, 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 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 Terms and Conditions for Payments without a PayPal account, available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. If the customer selects "PayPal Express" as a payment method during the online ordering process, he also issues a payment order to PayPal by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the time when the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.5 If the payment method "Amazon Payments" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe s.c.a., 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (hereinafter: "Amazon"), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe User Agreement, which can be viewed 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 completes the ordering process. In this case, the seller already declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the time when the customer triggers the payment process by clicking the button that concludes the order process.
2.6 When an offer is made via the Seller's online order form, the text of the contract is stored by the Seller after the contract is concluded and transmitted to the Customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the Customer has sent his order. The Seller shall not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this. If the Customer has set up a user account in the Seller's online shop before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the Seller's website and can be accessed by the Customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by providing the relevant login data.
2.7 Before bindingly placing 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 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.
2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 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 withdrawal.

4.3 If payment in advance by bank transfer has been agreed, payment is due immediately after conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.

4.5 If the payment method "PayPal Credit" (payment by instalments via PayPal) is selected, the Seller assigns its payment claim to PayPal. Before accepting the Seller's declaration of assignment, PayPal shall carry out a creditworthiness check using the transmitted customer data. The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the payment method "PayPal Credit" in case of a negative check result. If the payment method "PayPal Credit" is approved by PayPal, the customer must pay the invoice amount to PayPal at the conditions specified by the seller, which are communicated to him in the online shop of the seller. In this case, he can only pay PayPal with debt-discharging effect. However, the Seller shall remain responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipment, returns, complaints, revocation declarations and deliveries or credit notes, even in the event of assignment of the claim.
4.6 If the payment method "SOFORT" is selected, the payment will be processed via the payment service provider SOFORT GmbH, Theresienhöhe 12, 80339 Munich (hereinafter "SOFORT").
