The contractual language for business relations with foreign customers is German or English.

Customers in terms of these general terms and conditions are consumers, entrepreneurs as well as other legal or natural persons.

§ 2 Order, Conclusion of Contract, Transfer of Risk

Budoten is obliged to accept the customer's order according to the terms of the website.

Budoten will confirm the receipt of the order immediately by email. The confirmation of receipt does not constitute a binding acceptance of the order. When dealing with consumer's the purchase contract is effective upon delivery of the goods, in any other case at the handover to the shipper, carrier or other for the transport contracted third party. Placing the order by the customer does not conclude a purchase contract between the customer and Budoten. In case the customer pays by "prepayment / cash before delivery" or by "PayPal", the contract of purchase becomes effective by sending the order-confirmation and the request for payment.

At all sendings to consumer's Budoten bears the risk of transportation. If the addressee is not consumer in terms of these terms and conditions, the risk shall pass to the customer when the goods are handed over to the forwarder or carrier, latest, however, when leaving our warehouse. (§ 447 BGB).

If the purchase prices increased between order and delivery Budoten will ask the customer before delivery for his consent.

§ 4 Delivery Times, Delays of Delivery

Deliveries will be made latest within 10 working days (monday to friday, except national holidays) upon money transfer from your bank (in case of cash in advance) respectively in all other cases upon conclusion of the purchase contract.

At delays in shipping Budoten will inform you immediately by email. If the ordered item is not available anymore, because Budoten did not receive the goods by it's supplier without own fault, Budoten is entitled to withdraw from the contract. In this case Budoten will inform the customer immediately and recommend if appropriate a simular item. If there are no simular items or the customer does not wish a simular product, already made payments shall be refunded immediately.
