2.3 The presentation of the goods in our online shop does not constitute a legally binding contractual offer on our part, but is only a non-binding invitation to the consumer to order goods. When ordering via our online shop, the ordering process comprises a total of 4 steps. In the first step, you select the desired goods. In the second step, you enter your customer data including the invoice address and, if applicable, a different delivery address. In the third step, you choose how you would like to pay. In the last step you have the opportunity to check all details (e.g. name, address, payment method, ordered items) once again and correct them if necessary before you send your order to us by clicking on "order subject to payment". By sending the order for the desired goods, the consumer submits a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract. The automatically generated e-mail order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer, but merely documents that we have received the order. The decision as to whether we accept an order is at our sole discretion. If we are not going to execute an order, we will inform you immediately. Acceptance of the offer by us will be by way of an e-mail order confirmation which we will send to you, or at the latest by delivery of the goods.
If, while processing your order, we discover that the products you have ordered are not available, you will be informed of this by e-mail. A contract for the unavailable goods will then not be concluded.
We sell our goods only in quantities customary in the trade and exclusively to end consumers who have reached the age of 18.

7. Consequences of the withdrawal
7.1 If you withdraw from this contract, we must repay you all payments that we have received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of the additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a type of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), without delay and at the latest within 14 days from the day on which we received the notification of your withdrawal from this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will you be charged for this repayment.
7.2 We may refuse repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is the earlier.

MARC AUREL Textil GmbH is, however, entitled to refer the customer to a new delivery if the rectification of defects would involve disproportionate effort. The warranty claims expire two years after delivery of the goods.
