Terms of Service
I. General Terms and Conditions
1 Basic provisions
(1) The following terms and conditions apply to all contracts that you conclude with us as a provider (Webdots GmbH), via the website www.party365.com. Unless otherwise explicitly agreed in writing, the inclusion of any of your own terms will not be acknowledged.
(2) A consumer who falls within the meaning of the following provisions is any individual person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can be attributed to neither his commercial nor his independent professional activity. An entrepreneur is any individual, legal person or a legal partnership that, in the course of entering into a legal transaction, is exercising their/its independent professional or commercial activity.
2 Conclusion of the contract
(1) The subject of the contract is the sale of goods.
(2) The presentation of goods in the online shop www.party365.com is solely a non-binding invitation to you to order goods from us. The dispatch of the order therefore does not lead to the conclusion of the contract, but is your binding offer to conclude a purchase contract with us (Webdots GmbH). The contract - regarding the shipped goods - comes only with the delivery of the goods, which we inform you by mail.
(3) The contract is concluded via the online shopping cart system as follows: The goods intended for purchase are stored in the online‘shopping cart’. Via the corresponding button in the navigation bar, you can access your‘shopping cart’ and make changes there at any time.
After accessing the "CHECKOUT" page and entering your personal data as well as the payment and shipping options, all order data displayed in its entirety on the order summary page. If you use an instant payment system (e.g. PayPal / PayPal Express, Amazon Payments, Postpay, Bank Transfer) as the payment method, you will either be directed to the order overview page in our online shop, or you will be redirected to the provider's website for immediate payment. If redirection to the respective instant payment system takes place (e.g. via PayPal), you will be able to appropriately select and input your data there.
Finally, you will be redirected back to our online shop’s order overview page. Before submitting the order, you have the opportunity to review all the information displayed. You can also change (also via the function "back" of the Internet browser), or cancel the purchase. By submitting the order via the button "BUY NOW" you declare acceptance of the offer which is legally binding, and by which the contract is concluded.
(4) Your queries for the creation of an offer are not binding for you. We will make you a binding offer in writing (eg by e-mail), which you can accept within 5 days.
(5) The processing of the order and the transmission of all information required in connection with the conclusion of the contract is partly automated by e-mail. You therefore need to ensure that the e-mail address you provide us with is correct; that the reception of the e-mails is technically ensured and, in particular; that no SPAM filters prevent any correspondence being received via e-mail.
3 Special agreements on offered payment methods
(1) SEPA direct debit (basic and / or company direct debit)
When paying by SEPA Core Direct Debit or by SEPA B2B Direct Debit, you authorize us to collect the invoice amount from the specified account by issuing a corresponding SEPA mandate.
The collection of the direct debit takes place within 10 days after the conclusion of the contract.
The pre-notification deadline is reduced to 5 days before the due date. You are required to ensure sufficient funds are available for the account on the due date. In the case of a return debit due to your fault, you must bear the applicable bank fee.
4 Right of retention, retention of title
(1) You can only exercise a right of retention if it concerns claims from the same contractual relationship.
(2) The goods remain our property until full payment of the purchase price.
(1) We are fully liable for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health. Furthermore, we are liable without limitation in all cases of intent and gross negligence, fraudulent concealment of a defect, assumption of warranty for the nature of the object of purchase, and in all other legally regulated cases.
(2) The liability for defects within the scope of the legal warranty is governed by the corresponding provision in our customer information section (See Part II).
(3) If material contractual obligations are affected, our liability for slight negligence shall be limited to the contractually typical, foreseeable damage. Significant contractual obligations are essential obligations that arise from the nature of the contract and whose breach would jeopardize the achievement of the purpose of the contract as well as obligations that the contract imposes on us according to its content for the purpose of the contract, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and whose compliance you can regularly trust.
(4) Liability for slightly negligent breaches of duty is excluded in the case of breach of insignificant contractual obligations.
(5) Data communication over the Internet can not be guaranteed error-free and / or available at all times according to the current state of the art. We are not liable for the continuous or uninterrupted availability of the website and the services offered there.
6 Choice of law, place of performance, place of jurisdiction
(1) German law applies. For consumers, this choice of law applies only insofar as this does not remove the protection afforded by mandatory provisions of the law of the state of the consumer's habitual residence (favorable principle).
(2) Place of performance for all services from our existing business relationships and jurisdiction is our headquarters, as far as you are not a consumer, but a merchant, a legal entity under public law or public special assets. The same applies if you do not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany or the EU or your domicile or habitual residence is not known at the time the complaint is filed. The right to appeal to the court at another statutory place of jurisdiction remains unaffected.
(3) The provisions of the UN Sales Convention explicitly do not apply.
