GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS

Alsterhaus (alsterhaus.de), KaDeWe (kadewe.de) and Oberpollinger (oberpollinger.de), are production sites of The KaDeWe Group GmbH.

1. CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT

Your contract partner for all orders is The KaDeWe Group GmbH, business address:
Katharina-Heinroth-Ufer 1, 10787 Berlin.
A contract is formed when one person makes an offer, and the other accepts it.

a) Conclusion of contract for the use of the online shop

Our website is not an offer in the legal sense, but an invitation to an offer. By clicking on the button that concludes the ordering process, you make a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract. Immediately thereafter you will receive an e-mail confirming receipt of your order. We are entitled, but not obliged, to accept your offer within five days of receipt of your offer – by sending you a confirmation of dispatch in text form (e-mail) or exceptionally a written confirmation of dispatch by post, or – by delivering the ordered goods to you. If we do not accept your offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the result that you are no longer bound by your declaration of intent. If an order is not executed, we will inform you immediately by e-mail or in exceptional cases in writing. The goods offered in the shop will only be sold to consumers and entrepreneurs as end consumers. The commercial resale of goods is not permitted. We therefore reserve the right not to accept contractual offers which appear to be made for the purpose of commercial resale of the goods. When ordering alcoholic beverages, our offer is directed exclusively at persons of legal age. By entering your year of birth and sending the order, you confirm that you are of legal age. The delivery takes place exclusively to persons of full age. We are not contractual partners of purchase contracts which you conclude via external sites to which we merely provide access via a link. For these orders the conditions of the respective offerer apply.

b) Conclusion of contract for the use of the messaging service Whatsapp

For orders via the messaging service Whatsapp, the contract is concluded as follows:
You send a message to +49 151 12 000 090 via the messaging service Whatsapp containing details of your desired item. In accordance with your information, The KaDeWe Group GmbH will send you a suggestion for the purchase of a product with details of the purchase price. This is an invitation to treat, which is an invitation to you to make an offer to form a contract. You will make an offer by sending a confirmation via Whatsapp. Subsequently, you will be requested to provide your name, the desired delivery address and your email address. Upon receipt of this data, The KaDeWe Group will inform you of the purchase price, including the shipping costs, and you will be sent a link via Whatsapp, which you can use to pay the purchase price. The acceptance of the offer and thereby the conclusion of the contract for the product is made once a message is sent to you via Whatsapp that your payment has been received.

Orders can be placed in German and in English.
Our range of alcoholic beverages is exclusively directed at adults having attained the legal age of adulthood. You will confirm that you have attained the legal age of adulthood by entering your date of birth and by sending your order. The delivery will be made exclusively to persons having attained the legal age of adulthood.
We are not contracting partners of purchase agreements that you conclude on other pages which we merely link to. These orders are governed by the terms and conditions of the relevant provider.

2. CARRIAGE

You will receive your order in one delivery, if possible. There will be no disadvantage to you if the delivery is made in multiple shipments; The KaDeWe Group GmbH will accept the additional postage and shipping costs. In the event that an item cannot be delivered, we will inform you promptly by email or, in the event of an order via the messaging service Whatsapp, via Whatsapp.

3. SHIPPING COSTS

You have to bear the shipping costs. For the amount of the shipping costs, please refer to the notes on shipping costs.

The following applies for orders via the messaging service Whatsapp:
If the value of the goods is below EUR 150.00 and if the shipment is made within Germany, a flat shipping rate of EUR 10.00 is charged. National shipping of goods with a value over EUR 150.00 is free. Express shipping will incur additional costs.

4. PRICES, PAYMENT METHODS, RETENTION OF TITLE

All prices include the statutory rate of VAT and are deemed plus shipping costs. A Visa, Mastercard or American Express credit card is required to pay for orders. The goods shall remain the property of The KaDeWe Group GmbH until payment has been made in full.

5. encoding

All personal data such as your address or credit card details are encrypted using SSL and are therefore “bug-proof” when transmitted via the Internet.

6. warranty

The warranty for defects of the purchased goods is governed by the statutory provisions. This shall apply irrespective of the statutory right of revocation pursuant to Section 9. Any guarantees given by the respective manufacturer or The KaDeWe Group GmbH shall not affect the warranty provisions. Any guarantees given by the respective manufacturer or The KaDeWe Group GmbH do not affect the warranty provisions.

9. right of withdrawal

You can cancel your contract within 14 days without giving reasons in writing (eg letter, fax, e-mail) or – if the goods before the deadline – also by returning the goods. The period begins after receipt of this instruction in text form, but not before receipt of the goods by the recipient (in the case of recurring deliveries of similar goods not before receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not before fulfillment of our information obligations under Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 paragraph 1 and 2 EGBGB and our obligations under § 312 g paragraph 1 sentence 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB. The timely dispatch of the revocation or the goods suffices to comply with the revocation period. The revocation is to be addressed to:

revocation consequences

In the event of an effective revocation, the services received by both parties shall be returned and any benefits derived (e.g. interest) shall be surrendered. If you are unable to return or surrender the goods or services received or their uses (e.g. advantages of use) to us, or if you are unable to return or surrender them in full or in part, or only in a deteriorated condition, you must compensate us for the loss in value. For the deterioration of the goods and for any use made of them, you must only pay compensation if the use or deterioration is due to handling of the goods which goes beyond the inspection of their properties and functionality. Testing the properties and functionality” means testing and trying out the respective goods, as it is possible and customary in a retail shop.

Items that can be sent by parcel post are to be returned at our expense and risk. Items that cannot be sent as parcels will be collected from you.

Obligations to refund payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. The period begins for you with the dispatch of your declaration of revocation or the goods, for us with their receipt.

10. liability

We are liable without limitation for intent and gross negligence. For simple negligence we shall only be liable for damages resulting from injury to life, limb, health or an essential contractual obligation (obligation the fulfilment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and the observance of which the contractual partner regularly relies on and may rely on).

The foregoing limitations of liability shall also apply in favour of our legal representatives and vicarious agents employed by us.
