The customer receives a confirmation of receipt of the order by e-mail (order confirmation). This does not yet constitute acceptance of the offer, but is only intended to inform the customer that the order has been received by Living Crafts. Living Crafts may accept an order by sending an order confirmation by e-mail or by delivering the goods within ten days. Living Crafts shall point out possible errors in the information on the product range on the website to the customer separately, if necessary, and submit a corresponding counter-offer to the customer.

(4) The minimum order value for end consumers is € 25.00. All prices include the applicable statutory value added tax. For orders under € 25.00, a minimum quantity surcharge of € 5.00 will be levied. The minimum order value for resellers is € 120.00 (net). For orders below the minimum order value, a surcharge of € 21.00 (net) will be levied.
(5) The contractual language shall be German.

4. Delivery, shipping costs, online parcel tracking
(1) Living Crafts shall deliver the ordered goods to the address specified by the customer in the order as quickly as possible. Living Crafts shall be entitled to make partial deliveries and render partial services at any time, provided that these are reasonable for the customer.
(2) Living Crafts shall charge a flat rate for postage and packaging for each order.

(3) Delivery within Germany is regularly made via DHL GO GREEN CO2- NEUTRAL to the address provided by the customer. Shipments to post office boxes and items held in postal storage are possible.
(4) If the customer has provided Living Crafts with an e-mail address when placing the order, Living Crafts shall provide the customer with a parcel number as soon as the customer's order is sent to Living Crafts. With the parcel number, the customer can check the parcel status via DHL. However, Living Crafts has no influence on the query and query status.

5. Due date and payment
(1a) Subject to Section 5 (5), the purchase price and any shipping costs shall become due upon conclusion of the contract.
(2) Living Crafts accepts the following methods of payment for end consumers: direct debit from an account in Germany, direct debit authorisation, prepayment, credit card, PayPal and Sofortüberweisung, as well as purchase on account and purchase on instalments. If the direct debit payment method is chosen, the amount due will be collected by Living Crafts. If the prepayment payment method is chosen, the goods will only be delivered when the full amount is on the named Living Crafts account.
(3) Living Crafts reserves the right to exclude a customer from the payment methods listed under Section 5 (2) at any time without giving reasons.
(4) Resellers may only pay in advance or by SEPA direct debit mandate.
(5) Living Crafts reserves the right, in particular, in the event of a customer being in arrears with payment, to accept only the prepayment payment method. The same applies to end consumers if the value of goods of all orders, the sum of outstanding invoices or orders already dispatched exceeds an amount of € 200.00 at the time of a new order. In these cases, the order will only be processed after receipt of payment.
(6) If the customer is in default, Living Crafts shall be entitled to demand default interest in the amount of 5 percentage points above the respective base interest rate (Section 247 German Civil Code). The right of Living Crafts to claim higher damages shall remain unaffected.
(7) The customer shall only be entitled to set-off if and to the extent that its counterclaims are legally established, undisputed or recognised by Living Crafts. The customer is only entitled to exercise a right of retention if his counterclaim is based on the same purchase contract.
(8) Living Crafts has the right to assign its claims to third parties.

6. Ownership and resale
(1) Living Crafts shall retain title to the goods until receipt of all payments under the purchase contract. The customer shall immediately inform Living Crafts in writing of any access by third parties, in particular of compulsory execution measures and other impairments to its property. The customer shall compensate Living Crafts for all damages and costs arising from a breach of this obligation and from necessary intervention measures against access by third parties. If the customer behaves in breach of contract, in particular if the customer does not meet his payment obligation despite a reminder from Living Crafts, Living Crafts shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract after setting a reasonable deadline in advance and to demand the return of the goods still in its ownership. Taking back the goods or seizure by Living Crafts shall constitute a withdrawal from the contract. The customer shall bear the shipping costs incurred in the process. Living Crafts shall be entitled to dispose of the goods after they have been returned. The proceeds of realisation shall be credited against the customer's liabilities – less reasonable realisation costs.
(2) Resellers undertake not to resell any ordered or purchased goods via the online marketplace www.avocadostore.de. In the event of a violation, Living Crafts reserves the right to immediately terminate the supply relationship with the customer. Further claims, e.g. due to breach of contractual duty, shall remain unaffected

7. Withdrawal
(1) End consumers have the right to withdraw from any contract within fourteen days without giving any reason. The withdrawal period is fourteen days from the day on which the goods were taken possession of personally or by a third party who is not the carrier. To exercise the right of withdrawal, Living Crafts GmbH, Schlesier Str. 11, 95152 Selbitz, phone: 09280/981080, fax: 09280/9810830, e-mail: info@livingcrafts.de must be informed by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) of the decision to revoke a contract. The sample withdrawal form below can be used for this purpose, but is not mandatory. The sample withdrawal form or another clear declaration can also be downloaded electronically from the website www.livingcrafts.de. In order to comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient that the notification of the exercise of the right of withdrawal was sent before the expiry of the withdrawal period.
(2) Consequences of withdrawal: In the event of withdrawal, Living Crafts shall refund all payments previously received, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that a type of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by Living Crafts was chosen), without undue delay and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which Living Crafts received the notification of withdrawal. The same means of payment that was used for the original transaction will be used for this repayment, unless expressly agreed otherwise; in no case will any fees be charged because of this repayment. Living Crafts may refuse repayment until it has received the goods back or until proof has been provided that the goods have been returned, whichever is the earlier. The end consumer must return or hand over the goods immediately and in any case no later than within fourteen days from the day on which Living Crafts was informed of a withdrawal. The deadline is met if the goods are dispatched before the expiry of the period of fourteen days. The end consumer shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods. The end consumer only has to pay for any loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is due to the handling of the goods which is not necessary for the inspection of the quality, characteristics and functioning of the goods.
(3) The right of withdrawal is excluded for contracts: a) For the delivery of goods manufactured according to customer specifications b) With goods clearly tailored to personal needs c) With goods that are not suitable for return due to their nature d) With goods which can spoil quickly e) With goods whose expiry date has passed.
(4) Sample withdrawal form: I/we (*) hereby withdraw from the contract concluded by me/us (*) for the purchase of the following goods (*). Ordered on (*)/received on (*), name of consumer(s), address of consumer(s), signature of consumer(s) (only in case of paper communication), date (*)
