B) Formation and object of the contract
1. The presentation of our Products and Service offer visible in the Online Store, including related illustrations and drawings, and dimensions, weight and performance data, shall not constitute a legally binding offer, but an invitation for submission of an offer by the Customer.
2. When an order has been placed the Customers receives an e-mail confirmation of receipt entitled "Thank you for your order"-email. This confirmation of receipt is information about the content of the order. It does not constitute acceptance of the Customer’s order, merely confirmation of receipt thereof. When the order is confirmed by back-office personnel, the Customer receives an email confirmation entitled "Your order confirmation."
An order is deemed accepted by the Supplier and a binding agreement between the parties concluded upon order confirmation. However, the Customer is bound by the order after order placement.
During order placement the Customer can select financing options, to which the conditions specified in sections C and G apply.
Before the order is sent the Customer can at any time change the information or correct any input errors. The ordering process can be interrupted at any time before the Customer clicks on the "Submit Order" by simply closing the browser window.

2. We aim to process orders within [x] working days by issuing an order confirmation including order data and the agreement via e-mail for the Customer to save/print. The agreement must be in [language]. We do not issue a confirmation if the product is not available. Instead the Customer will be contacted with alternatives. The validity of the contract is subject to our written or electronic order confirmation transmitted to the Customer by standard commercial means of dispatch (e-mail, fax, letter, etc.) following receipt of payment in accordance with section C.

3. Our written order confirmation is binding as to the description of the nature and scope of the Products ordered by a Customer. If the order confirmation (including the price of the order) differs from the Customer’s order, the Customer will be considered in agreement to our order confirmation (including the price of the order) unless we are notified by the Customer without delay. If the prices of individual Products change after an order is made, we reserve the right to adjust prices.
4. We reserve the right to deviate from contractually agreed parameters where such deviations are customary in the trade. This shall apply in particular to colour variations and technical modifications by the manufacturer, provided that they have no effect on fitness for use and agreed quality.
