Our special offers in the online shop may be limited in terms of time or quantity. Details can be found in the product or offer description.
2. CUSTOM-MADE PRODUCTS

3. CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT
(1) The presentation of our items of jewellery in our online shop does not yet represent a binding offer. Only an order for the goods in accordance with Section 3 (2) to (4) of these GT&C by the Customer is a binding offer in accordance with § 145 German Civil Code (BGB).
(2) The Customer can select items of jewellery from the range of goods in our online shop and place them in a so-called basket without any obligation via the “add to basket” button. The goods in the basket can be viewed at any time by clicking on the “basket” menu item in the navigation bar.

He can also discontinue the order process completely by closing the browser window.
(4) The Customer makes a binding commitment to purchase the goods in the basket via the “Commit to pay” button in the order overview.
(5) We will send the Customer automatic confirmation of receipt by e-mail, which confirms our receipt of the order and again states the details of the order. This confirmation of receipt can be printed out via the “Print” function. The automatic confirmation of receipt merely documents that the Customer’s order has been received by us and does not yet represent acceptance of the application.
(6) The contract between us and the Customer comes about only with the submission of the declaration of acceptance, which we will send in a separate e-mail (order confirmation). The contract text (consisting of the order, GT&C and order confirmation) will be sent to the Customer by us in this e-mail or in a separate e-mail, however no later than with delivery of the goods on a permanent data carrier (e-mail or printout on paper) (contract confirmation). The contract text will be saved in compliance with data protection.
(7) The time of the contract acceptance will take place under the methods of payment we currently offer within two days or through delivery of the goods.

A purchase agreement for this item will not come about.

Information on the right to cancel
Right to cancel
You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without stating any reasons.
The period for cancellation totals fourteen days as of the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not a freight forwarder, has acquired possession of the goods.
In order to exercise your right of cancellation, you must notify us, Leo Mathild GmbH, Kantstraße 51, 10625 Berlin, Tel. +49 (0) 30 2392 8342, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) about your decision to cancel this contract. You can use the enclosed sample cancellation form for this; however, this is not prescribed.
It is sufficient that you send the notification about exercising the right to cancel before the end of the cancellation period in order to comply with the period of cancellation.
Consequences of cancellation
If you cancel this contract, we must repay to you all the payments, which we have received from you, including the delivery costs (with the exception of the additional costs, which result from the fact that you have selected a different type of delivery than the affordable standard delivery offered by us), immediately and no later than within fourteen days as of the day on which the notification about your cancellation of this contract was received by us. We will use the same means of payment for this repayment, which you used for the original transaction, unless something different was expressly agreed with you; under no circumstances will you be charged anything owing to this repayment.
We can refuse the repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided evidence that you have sent the goods back, depending on which is the earlier point in time.
You must send or hand the goods back to us immediately and in any case no later than within fourteen days as of the day on which you inform us about the cancellation of this contract. The period is complied with if you dispatch the goods before the end of the period of fourteen days.
We will bear the direct costs of returning the goods.
You are responsible for any loss in value of the goods only if this loss in value is based on any unnecessary handling by you after a check of the quality, properties and mode of operation of the goods has been undertaken.
End of the information on cancellation
(2) The right to cancel does not exist for the delivery of goods, which are not pre-manufactured and for whose production an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are clearly custom-made for the personal requirements of the consumer.
(3) If the customer wishes to cancel the contract, he can declare his cancellation to us in an e-mail to email@example.com.
(1) Claims of the Customer for compensation are ruled out. An exception to this are claims for compensation of the Customer arising from an injury to life, limb, health or from a breach of major contractual obligations (material contractual obligations) as well as liability for other losses, which are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of an obligation by us, our statutory representatives or vicarious agents. Major contractual obligations are those whose satisfaction is necessary to achieve the objective of the contract.
(2) In the event of a breach of major contractual obligations, we are liable only for the typical, foreseeable contractual losses if the breach was simply caused negligently, unless there are claims for compensation by the Customer arising from an injury to life, limb or health.
(3) The restrictions of Section 10 (1) and (2) also apply for the benefit of our statutory representatives and vicarious agents if claims are asserted directly against the latter.
(4) The restrictions of liability arising from Section 10 (1) and (2) do not apply insofar as we maliciously conceal a defect or have assumed a guarantee for the quality of the item. This also applies insofar as we and the Customer have reached an agreement about the quality of the item. The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain unaffected.
11. GOODS PRESENTATION, MATERIAL DEFECTS AND DEFECTS OF TITLE, GUARANTEES
(1) Depictions of goods in advertising, brochures and in the online shop are merely for the purpose of illustration and are not binding. We reserve the right to change the goods listed in the online shop at any time and without any advance notice and to limit the numbers of goods which can be purchased by a Customer.
(2) We are liable for material defects in accordance with the statutory provisions applicable to the latter, in particular §§ 434 et seq. BGB. However, a claim by the Customer owing to defects is ruled out insofar as the item of jewellery was adjusted by us (e.g. made smaller / larger) at the request of the Customer after purchase and / or insofar as the Customer himself has changed the items of jewellery or arranged for a third party to do so, unless the Customer provides evidence that the material defect already existed at the time the item was handed over.
(3) There is an additional guarantee for goods we have delivered only if this was stipulated expressly in the order confirmation regarding the relevant item.
(4) As a consumer, you are requested to check our goods immediately on delivery for completeness, obvious defects and transport damage and to notify us of any negative deviations immediately. However, if you fail to do so, this will have no negative effects on your claims for compensation.
12. DATA PROTECTION
Personal data on our customers will be collected, processed or used only insofar as the Customer has given consent or the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Broadcast Media Act (TMG) or a different legal provision orders or permits this. As for the rest, our data protection declaration applies.

14. FINAL PROVISIONS
(1) The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to contracts between us and the Customer excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The statutory provisions regarding the limitation of the choice of law and the applicability of mandatory provisions in particular of the State in which the Customer as a consumer has his habitual place of residence remain unaffected.
(2) The contract remains binding in the remaining parts even in the event of the legal invalidity of individual points. The statutory provisions shall apply instead of the ineffective points, insofar as they exist. Insofar as this would represent unreasonable hardship for one of the contractual parties, the whole contract will be ineffective.
