Terms of service

§ 1 Scope of the General Terms and Conditions

The following terms of delivery and payment apply to all transactions between the seller, roba Baumann GmbH, Feldstraße 14, 96237 Ebersdorf (hereinafter “roba”), and the consumer (hereinafter “Purchaser”), in the version valid at the time of the order.

§ 2 Order and conclusion of contract

  1. The presentation of the range of products by roba does not constitute a binding offer according to § 145 of the German civil code. Rather, an order represents an offer to roba for the conclusion of a purchase contract.
  2. After receipt of order, the Purchaser will be sent an e-mail confirming the same (acknowledgement of order) and its details (in particular binding prices). This order confirmation represents no acceptance of the offer. A purchase contract is only concluded by sending the ordered product to the Purchaser (accompanied by a shipping confirmation by e-mail) or by sending a separate order confirmation by e-mail. No purchase contract is concluded on ordered products that are not listed in the shipment or the order confirmation.
  3. The delivery of the order will occur within 1-6 business days. Any previous statements about availability and shipping of a product are only estimated times─they are neither mandatory nor guaranteed shipping or delivery dates. If during the processing of an order roba finds that the ordered products are unavailable, roba will inform the Purchaser of the delivery date in the order confirmation. If the Purchaser so wishes, the remaining available items in the order will be sent separately. However; by splitting the order into multiple shipments, shipping costs may increase accordingly.
  4. If roba is, without any fault of its own, unable to deliver the ordered goods because roba‘s Supplier has not fulfilled its contractual obligations, roba is entitled to cancel the contract. In such a case, the Purchaser will be informed immediately that the ordered product is not available. The statutory rights of the Purchaser remain unaffected.
  5. Information about the goods (technical data, dimensions, etc.) provided by roba are only approximate guiding values; in particular, they represent only an agreement on properties, if roba‘s information is in writing and explicitly designated as such.
  6. roba reserves the right to limit the order to a household quantity. This relates both to the number of products ordered within an order, as well as to several orders of the same product where the individual orders the household quantity.
  7. In the case of payment by direct credit, roba reserves the right to check the credit rating of the Purchaser in an appropriate manner before accepting the order. roba will use the information for the purpose of deciding on the establishment or implementation of a contractual relation, to decide in particular whether the Purchaser will be offered the payment option of direct debit. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, the Purchaser declares their consent to the forwarding of the data and the credit check. Details can be found in the separate roba Privacy Policy.

§ 3 Methods of payment

  1. The prices listed in the roba retail shop or online store are final prices in Euro and include the currently valid statutory VAT. The invoice total is due upon acceptance of the order (see § 2 of the GTC).
  2. The Purchaser can pay the invoice amount with the methos offered in the online shop.

In the case of payment by credit card and PayPal, the payment date corresponds to the order date. In the case of use of the payment service provider "PayPal" payment processing by PayPal (Europe) S. à R. l. et Cie, S. C. A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg, under the PayPal terms of use, available at www.paypal.com. This requires, i.a., that the buyer create a PayPal account or already have such an account.

In the case of payment by SEPA direct deibt, the invoice aount is due for payment after issuance of a SEPA direct debit mandate, however, not before expiry of the deadline for receipt of pre-notification. The debit occurs when the ordered goods leave the roba warehouse, but before expiry of the deadline for pre-notification. Pre-notification is any communication (e.g. invoice) from roba to the Purchaser announcing a debit by means of a SEPA direct debit. If the debit is rejected due to insufficient funds or incorrect account information, or if the Purchaser, although he is not entitled to do so, refuses the charge, the Purchaser is obligated to bear any incurred costs with the respective financial instituation caused by the chargeback. Furthermore, a credit and data verification is carried out upon selection of the payment method, direct debit (see § 2 no. 8).

In the case of a rejection of the credit card charge, the Purchaser is obliged, within 10 days of receipt of service, to pay any costs incurred. These costs include costs incurred due to cancellation of the credit card charge and others.

  1. For deliveries to Non-EU countries, e.g. Switzerland, USA, etc., additional customs duties and fees are charged by authorities in the destination country.
  2. If the buyer is in default of payment, roba is entitled to demand default interest in the amount of 5% as per the European Central Bank announced base rate of interest per annum. If roba can provide evidence of a higher incurred damage, roba is entitled to make a claim for the same.
  3. The purchaser hereby agrees that roba is entitled to send the invoice as an electronic invoice (invoice issued in an electronic Format, and receive, e.g. as a PDF-document) by e-mail to the Purchaser. roba may, in its discretion, deliver the the invoice on paper to the Purchaser's home.

§ 4 Reservation of ownership

  1. The goods remain the property of roba until complete payment of the invoice amount.
