General Terms and Conditions of Cotton Control UG (limited liability), as of: 03/10/20171. Scope
1.1. These General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") govern the contractual relationship between Cotton Control UG (limited liability), Ostendstraße 1-14, 12459 Berlin, Germany, phone: +49 30 688 15 217, Fax: +49 30 680 72 637, E-Mail: email@example.com
(Hereinafter referred to as "Cotton Control"), available under the family of domains www.cottoncontrol.com
as well as www.avantasia-shop.com drringding.cottoncontrol.com dyse.cottoncontrol.com www.edguy-shop.de fotos.cottoncontrol.com richardalexander.cottoncontrol.com wolfmaahn.cottoncontrol.com
and the customer.
1.2. All agreements made between you and us in connection with the purchase contract result in particular these sales conditions; our written order confirmation and our declaration of acceptance.
1.3. The current version of the GTC is valid at the time of conclusion of the contract.
1.4. We do not accept any deviating terms or conditions from the customer. This is true even if we do not expressly object to the inclusion.
2. Conclusion of the Contract
2.1. The presentation and application of articles in our online shop do not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract.
2.2. Contracts relating to Cotton Control products may be entered into in either the German or English languages.
2.3. The customer can choose products from Cotton Control (clothing merchandise and tickets) products and purchase them via the "Buy" button in a so-called shopping basket. The order can be modified or concluded via the "Checkout" button. Before submitting the order, the customer can change and view the data at any time. With the "Submit order" button, the customer makes a binding contract offer to purchase the goods in the shopping cart. However, this offer can only be submitted and transmitted if the customer, by clicking the button "Accept general business terms and conditions", accepts these contract terms and therefore makes them part of the offer.
2.4. By ordering a product, the customer makes a binding offer that they will purchase the ordered goods and submit a binding contract offer. We promptly confirm receipt of the order according to Section 312i, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, No. 3 of the German Civil Code (BGB) in the form of an automated confirmation of receipt by e-mail to the customer. This once again contains the contract provisions (customer order and these general business terms and conditions) and can be printed by the customer using the "Print" function.
2.5. The acknowledgment of receipt does not constitute a binding acceptance of the order. A purchase contract for the goods ordered is only concluded with our separate written order confirmation (by e-mail), but no later than when the goods ordered are shipped. However, the declaration of acceptance can be combined with the confirmation of receipt.
2.6. If no copies of the product selected by the customer are available or temporarily unavailable at the time of the customer's order, Cotton Control shall notify Customer of this within the order confirmation page. If the product is permanently unavailable, Cotton Control shall not issue a notice of acceptance. A contract is not concluded in this case.
2.7. A sale with a so-called quota restriction (e.g.: max. 8 tickets) should not be initiated more than once by the same buyer. Cotton Control, therefore, has the right to withdraw from subsequent contingent purchase contracts as soon as it is determined that the buyers under the respective contingent purchase contracts are identical (e.g. because the holder of the account from which Cotton Control wants to collect the amount for the second, third etc. contingent purchase contract, or from which the amount is transferred, is identical to the account for the first purchase).3. Prices and payment terms
3.1. The prices stated at the time of the order on our website apply directly with the illustrations or the descriptions of the goods. The purchase prices are final and include the applicable sales tax. When making a purchase, the purchase price is to be understood as what's laid out in the payment terms plus shipping and handling costs. The corresponding shipping costs are quoted on the order form and borne by the customer.
3.2. The price, including VAT, will also be displayed on the order form before sending the order. In the case of deliveries outside Germany, additional costs may arise when importing into another country (customs duties and import VAT) which will be added to the stated price.
3.3. All fees shall be due immediately upon conclusion of the contract, but at the latest upon receipt of the invoice. After the end of this term, the customer is in default of payment. For consumers, the debt bears interest at the rate of 5 percentage points above the prime rate during the period of delayed payment. For merchants, the debt bears interest at the rate of 8 percentage points above the prime rate during the period of delayed payment. We reserve the right to provide proof of and assert higher damages for delayed payment by merchants.
3.4. The customer can make the payment in advance by transfer (prepayment), by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or by PayPal. In the case of payment through prepayments, the delivery of the goods takes place only after the payment has been received, which the customer agrees to at the conclusion of the contract.
3.5. The customer is not entitled to set off against our claims unless his counterclaims are legally established or undisputed. The customer is also entitled to set-off against our claims if he can assert complaints or counterclaims from the same purchase contract.
4. Delivery terms

If we fulfill the order by partial delivery, the customer will only be charged shipping costs for the first partial delivery.
