1. Conclusion of contract for orders in the Benediktiner Weissbräu online shop
You will be provided with an order summary of the products you selected using the ‘Add to shopping basket’ button prior to conclusion of the order. In this order summary, you can review all information you entered during the ordering process and complete and/or correct it as needed using the ‘Edit’ option. By clicking on ‘Place order now’, you submit your order information and make a binding declaration to Bitburger that you want to acquire the products listed there (offer).
After your order is submitted, you will receive an automatically generated email with which Bitburger confirms receipt of your order (order placement confirmation). The individual details of your order are provided once more in this confirmation email. The text of your order is stored by Bitburger and can be sent to you upon request after conclusion of your order. For secure documentation, Bitburger recommends printing out the order information as well as the general terms and conditions applicable at the time the order was placed.
The order placement confirmation does not represent acceptance of your offer and does not constitute a contract. A contract does not come into being until Bitburger expressly declares its acceptance of your offer (order acceptance confirmation) or your offer is accepted by shipment of the goods you ordered (without prior express declaration of acceptance). Bitburger is entitled to decline an offer made by you without reason, in particular in the event of violations of clause 7 of these general terms and conditions. German is available as the contract language.
