§ 1 Area of Application
The following terms and conditions in the version valid at the time of the order shall exclusively apply to the business relationship between the supplier and the customer. Deviating conditions of the customer shall not be recognised unless the supplier expressly agrees to their validity in writing.
§ 2 Conclusion of Contract
(1) The customer can select products from the supplier’s product range and collects them via the button “add to shopping cart”. Using the “order now” button, s/he submits a binding request to buy the goods in the shopping cart. Before sending the order, the customer is able to change and view the data at any time.
(2) The supplier then sends the customer an automatic confirmation of receipt with the subject “Confirmation of your order at Fitz & Huxley – backpacks” via email, in which the customer’s order is listed once more and which the customer can print out via the “print” function. The customer’s order (1) thus represents the offer to conclude the contract with the respective shopping cart contents. The confirmation of receipt (order confirmation) represents the acceptance of the offer by the supplier. In it, the contents of the order are summarised, In this email or in a separate e-mail, however at the latest upon delivery of the goods, the contract text (consisting of order, terms and conditions and order confirmation) will be sent to the customer by us on a durable medium (email or paper printout).

(2) If the product specified by the customer in the order is only temporarily unavailable, the supplier shall also immediately inform the customer of this. In the event of a delivery delay of more than two weeks, the customer has the right to withdraw from the contract. In this case, the supplier is also entitled to withdraw from the contract. In doing so, s/he will immediately reimburse any payments already made by the customer.

§ 5 Prices and Shipping Costs
(1) All prices that are indicated on the supplier’s website are inclusive of the respective valid legal value added tax.

(1) The supplier is liable for material defects in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions, in particular §§ 434 ff. of the BGB (German Civil Code). For entrepreneurs, the warranty period for goods delivered by the supplier is 12 months.
(2) Leather is a natural product: even if the supplier has stipulated the highest quality standards, s/he is unable to guarantee complete colour fastness. Particularly in the case of open-pore aniline leathers, which are only coloured with water-soluble dyes in accordance with EU law, a certain loss of colour of the leather must be accepted.

This does not apply to claims for damages of the customer resulting from injury to life, limb, health or the breach of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations), as well as liability for other damages that are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the supplier, his legal representatives or vicarious agents. Significant contractual obligations are those whose fulfilment is necessary to achieve the objective of the contract.
(2) In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the supplier shall only be liable for the contractually typical, foreseeable damage if this was simply caused by negligence, unless it concerns claims for damages of the customer resulting from injury to life, limb or health.
(3) The limitations of paragraphs 1 and 2 shall also apply in favour of the legal representatives and vicarious agents of the supplier if claims are asserted directly against them.
(4) The provisions of the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected.
