These General Terms and Conditions of the Dr. THIEL GmbH, apply to all contracts concluded by a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "customer") with the seller with regard to the goods and services presented by the seller in his shop (whether online or offline). Hereby the inclusion of own conditions of the customer is contradicted, unless it is agreed otherwise.
2) Conclusion of the contract
The presentation of the products in the online shop only includes an invitation to the customer to submit a contract offer. The customer can put selected products into the virtual shopping cart and after completing the electronic order process by clicking on the final "Buy" button, he submits a legally binding offer acc. § 145 BGB, in relation to the goods and products in the shopping cart. The customer initially receives only a confirmation of the receipt of the order. The contract is concluded when the offer of the customer within 5 working days after sending the order in writing or in text form is accepted. In addition, the customer can submit an offer by fax or e-mail to the seller.
The seller can accept the offer of the customer within 5 days,
- By sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or email), in which case the receipt of the order confirmation at the customer is authoritative
- By delivering the ordered goods to the customer, in which respect the access of the goods to the customer is decisive
- by asking the customer for payment after submitting his order.
If more than one of the aforementioned alternatives exists, the contract will be concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The deadline for the acceptance of the offer begins to run on the day after the sending of the offer by the customer and ends with the expiry of the 5th day, which follows the sending of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
When submitting an offer via the seller's online order form, the contract text will be stored by the seller after conclusion of the contract and sent to the customer in writing (for example by e-mail, fax or letter) after the order has been sent. Any further provision of the contract by the seller is not possible. If the customer has set up a user account in the online shop of the seller before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the website of the seller and can be retrieved by the customer via his password-protected user account, stating the corresponding login data free of charge.
Before placing the order on the seller's online order form, the customer can identify possible typing errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical means for better recognition of input errors can be the enlargement function of the browser, with the help of which the display on the screen is enlarged. As part of the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his input via the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.
For the conclusion of the contract, only the German language is available.
The order processing and contacting take place usually by email and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address specified by him for the order processing is correct, so that at this address the emails sent by the seller can be received. In particular, when using spam filters, the customer must ensure that all emails sent by the seller or by third parties commissioned with the order processing can be delivered.
3) Right of withdrawal
Consumers are in principle entitled to the statutory right of withdrawal for contracts concluded outside of business premises or by means of distance communication.
The right of revocation does not apply to consumers who, at the time of the conclusion of the contract, do not belong to a member state of the European Union and whose sole domicile and delivery address are outside the European Union at the time the contract is concluded.
Further information on the right of revocation result from the cancellation policy of the seller.

4) Prices and terms of payment
The prices quoted by the seller are total prices and include the statutory value added tax. If applicable, additional delivery and shipping costs are specified separately in the respective product description.
In the case of deliveries to countries outside the European Union, additional costs may be incurred in individual cases, which the seller is not responsible for and which must be borne by the customer. These include, for example, costs of transferring money by credit institutions (for example, transfer fees, exchange rate charges) or import duties or taxes (such as customs duties). Such costs may be incurred in relation to the transfer of funds even if the delivery is not made to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.
The payment option (s) will be communicated to the customer on the website of the seller.
If advance payment has been agreed by bank transfer, the payment is due immediately upon conclusion of the contract, unless the parties have agreed on a later due date.
5) Delivery and shipping conditions
The delivery of goods is made by mail to the delivery address specified by the customer, unless otherwise agreed. Notwithstanding this, when selecting the payment method PayPal, the delivery address specified by the customer at the time of payment is decisive.
If the transport company sends the goods back to the seller, because a delivery to the customer was not possible, the customer bears the cost of unsuccessful shipping. This does not apply if the customer exercises his right of withdrawal effectively, if he is not responsible for the circumstance that led to the impossibility of delivery, or if he was temporarily prevented from accepting the service offered, unless the seller to him had announced the performance a reasonable time previously.
In the case of self-pickup, the seller first informs the customer by email that the goods ordered by him are ready for pickup. Upon receipt of this email, the customer may pick up the goods after consultation with the seller at the seller's domicile. In this case, no shipping costs will be charged.
Where do the dimensional tolerances come from?
Textiles have much higher permitted deviations than products made of metal or wood. This is partly due to the properties of the fibers used. In particular, cotton can absorb and release a great deal of water and humidity as a natural fiber. This is always accompanied by a change in length of the fiber and thus of the entire textile. On the other hand, textiles are more or less elastic depending on their construction (weave).
Every machine and, above all, every human being is subject to varying degrees of tension. This also leads to different results.
The finishing of the textiles is still done manually. Manual work always leads to higher tolerances than work of machines. Depending on the seam pattern and sewing machine, further tolerances result.
Dimensional tolerances to be expected:
Oblique warping ± 1.5% of the fabric width
Length deviation ± 3%
Inlet deviation ± 3%
Dimensional deviations for textiles in ready-made condition: ± 1.5%
Basically, our products are calculated with these tolerances. We also carry tissue, which can be manufactured to the nearest centimeter. If you want a centimeter-accurate production, please contact us, we will gladly make you an offer.
7) Retention of title
If the seller in advance, he reserves the right to the ownership of the delivered goods until full payment of the purchase price owed.
With respect to entrepreneurs, the seller retains title to the delivered goods until full settlement of all claims arising from an ongoing business relationship.
If the customer acts as an entrepreneur, the reserved goods are entitled to resell in the ordinary course of business. All resulting claims against third parties shall be assigned by the customer to the seller in advance in the amount of the respective invoice value (including value added tax). This assignment applies regardless of whether the reserved goods have been resold without or after processing. The customer remains authorized to collect the claims even after the assignment. The right of the seller to collect the claims himself remains unaffected. However, the seller will not collect the receivables as long as the customer complies with his payment obligations to the seller, does not default on payment and has not filed for insolvency proceedings.
8) Liability for defects (warranty)
If the purchased item is defective, the provisions of the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
The customer is requested to claim delivered goods with obvious transport damage to the deliverer and to inform the seller thereof. If the customer does not comply, this has no effect on his statutory or contractual claims for defects.
9) Applicable law
For all legal relationships between the parties, the law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies, excluding the laws on the international purchase of movable goods. For consumers, this choice of law applies only to the extent that the granted protection is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.
10) Alternative Dispute Resolution
The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link:
This platform serves as a point of contact for the out-of-court resolution of disputes arising from online purchase or service contracts involving a consumer.
The seller is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
The Dr. THIEL GmbH is not liable for damages that are not based on injuries to life, limb or health or that the seller is not responsible for intent or gross negligence, unless there is a guarantee promise or there is a mandatory liability the product liability law.
