The goods offered in the online shop do not represent any binding offer for conclusion of a purchase contract. They merely represent an invitation to submit a binding offer. When you submit your order by clicking the "Order with fee" button, you submit a binding offer for concluding a purchase contract. As soon as we receive your order, you will receive an e-mail that confirms our receipt of your order and lists its details ("confirmation of receipt of your order") No purchase contract comes into existance by means of this confirmation of receipt of your order.
