The inclusion of the customer's own conditions is hereby rejected, 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 can predominantly neither be attributed to their commercial nor their independent professional activity. An entrepreneur in the sense of these terms and conditions is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in their commercial or independent professional activity.
1.3 The subject matter of the contract - depending on the seller's product description - can be the purchase of goods by way of a one-off delivery or the purchase of goods by way of a permanent delivery (hereinafter referred to as “subscription contract”). In the subscription contract, the seller undertakes to deliver the contractually owed goods to the customer for the duration of the agreed contract period at the contractually owed time intervals.
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 with regard to 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 telephone, 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 e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer 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 time when 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.
2.5 If the payment method "Amazon Payments" is selected, payment will be processed by the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe sca, 5 Rue Plaetis, L-2338 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.

If the customer has set up a user account in the seller's online shop before submitting his order, the order data will be archived on the seller's website and can be accessed free of charge by the customer via his password-protected user account by providing the corresponding login data.
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.

4.2 For deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may arise 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 arise in relation to the money transfer 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.

Deviating from this, when choosing the PayPal payment method, the delivery address stored by the customer at PayPal at the time of payment is decisive.
5.2 If the transport company sends the goods back to the seller because delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears 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 he was temporarily prevented from accepting the offered service, unless the seller announced the service to him a reasonable time in advance would have. Furthermore, this does not apply with regard to the costs for the dispatch if the customer effectively exercises his right of withdrawal. For the return costs, if the customer exercises his right of withdrawal, the provisions made in the seller’s cancellation policy apply.
5.3 In the event of incorrect delivery information provided by the customer, an additional flat fee will be charged for the re-shipment. The customer has to ensure that the delivery address is correctly transmitted to plant4planet.
Flat rate fees:
- for deliveries under an order value of € 40.01: € 2.10
- for deliveries over an order value of 40 €: 3.25 €

6) Contract duration and contract termination for subscription contracts
6.1 Subscription contracts are concluded for an unlimited period and can be canceled by the customer at the end of each month.

6.3 Terminations must be made in writing or in text form (e.g. by e-mail).
7) Retention of title
If the seller makes an advance payment, he retains ownership of the delivered goods until the purchase price owed has been paid in full.
8) Liability for defects (warranty)
8.1 If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of statutory liability for defects apply.
8.2 Notwithstanding this, the following applies to used goods: Claims for defects are excluded if the defect only occurs one year after delivery of the goods. Defects that occur within one year of delivery of the goods can be asserted within the statutory limitation period. However, the shortening of the liability period to one year does not apply
for items that have been used for a building in accordance with their normal use and have caused its defectiveness,
for claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the customer, as well as
in the event that the seller has fraudulently concealed the defect.
8.3 The customer is asked to complain to the deliverer about delivered goods with obvious transport damage and to inform the seller thereof. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
9) Applicable Law
The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all legal relationships between the parties, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law only applies insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence is not withdrawn.
