General terms and conditions of business for consumers (private customers)
The following terms and conditions in the version currently valid at the time the contract is concluded apply to all contracts that Multiplex Modellsport GmbH & Co. KG concludes with consumers. A consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that are predominantly neither commercial nor self-employed.
2. Contractual partner, contract language
The contractual partner is Multiplex Modellsport GmbH & Co. KG, Westliche Gewerbestraße 1, D 75015 Bretten-Gölshausen.
Only the German, English or French language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
3. Offer, Pricing
The presentation of our products and services in catalogues, flyers, brochures, advertisements, on our website and in the online shop does not represent a legally binding offer on our part, but a non-binding proposal for the conclusion of a contract.
The price stated for the respective product or service is the currently valid sales price in EURO including the statutory sales tax in Germany valid at the time of the order.
If the goods are shipped to an EU country or Switzerland / Liechtenstein, the sales tax applicable in the country of delivery is decisive. This can lead to different sales prices due to the different tax rates. Before the contract is concluded, you will be informed of the actual sales price.
When shipping the products / services outside the EU or Switzerland / Liechtenstein, the price is net, i.e. without sales tax and other levies. See also 6.
We do not offer a subsequent "VAT Refund Service" for self-exported products and services.
Our pricing is always “ex works”, i.e. you as the buyer have to bear the shipping costs in addition to the stated product prices. Further details on the shipping costs and shipping conditions are described in more detail under 6.
4. Ordering process, conclusion of contract, data protection, contact
We offer you the following options for ordering or purchasing our products and services:
1. Order Form
If you send us your order in the form of a fully completed and signed order form, this represents a binding offer from you to us. We can accept this offer within two weeks by sending an order confirmation or by shipping the ordered products and services.
For repairs that are sent in or handed in at our sales and advice center with a fully completed and signed order form, the cost approval given on it is considered a binding offer on your part, up to the amount of which we accept this offer within two weeks by confirming the order or accept it by sending the repaired / replaced items including our services.
The order form can be accessed and downloaded from our website.
2. Informal orders by letter, fax, e-mail, telephone
We will create a personal and non-binding offer for you and send it to you. If you wish to accept the offer, please let us know in writing, stating the offer number. This is then a binding offer on your part to us, which we can accept within two weeks by sending an order confirmation or by shipping the products and services.
The same procedure applies to repairs that are sent in or handed in to our sales and advice center without an order form and cost approval. This also applies if the cost allowance specified on the order form is exceeded or the form is incomplete. This also applies to products sent in or handed over for which a warranty has been requested but which we do not recognize.

If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, we ask that you report the damage to the deliverer as soon as possible. Please contact us immediately.
Failure to report transport damage or to contact us has no consequences whatsoever for your legal claims, in particular your warranty rights and their enforcement. However, they help us to be able to assert our claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.

Furthermore, liability for damages for damages of all kinds, regardless of the basis of the claim, including liability for culpa in contrahendo, is excluded.
Insofar as we are liable for simple negligence, liability is limited to the damage that we typically had to expect to occur based on the circumstances known at the time the contract was concluded.
The above exclusions and limitations of liability do not apply if we have given a guarantee, nor if it is a matter of damage to life, limb or health or claims under the Product Liability Act.
The above exclusions and limitations of liability also apply to our employees, vicarious agents and other third parties we use to fulfill the contract.
