|The Terms and Conditions appear in German and English. In the case that discrepancies appear in the English version, it is the German version that applies.
§ 1 SCOPE
All business relations between www.paulinamaternity.com and the buyer, including any future businesses, shall be performed exclusively on the basis of the following General Standard Terms and Conditions, in the currently valid version. We do not recognize any provisions of the customer which conflict with or deviate from these General Standard Terms and Conditions, unless Paulina e. K. has expressly agreed to their validity in writing.
§ 2 CONTRACTUAL PARTNER
Your contractual partner is:
c/o Paulina e.K.
Lochhamer Schlag 10b
represented by the business owner Peggy Hillig. All claims and queries should be directed to this address.
§ 3 ESTABLISHMENT OF CONTRACT
An order constitutes an offer to us until the sales contract is formalized. When you order from Paulina e.K., we send you an email that confirms your order with us and lists all the particulars of that order. This email does not constitute an approval of your order, but rather only serves to inform you that we have received your order request. The sales contract is only effected when we have checked the product's availability and sent you a second email confirming the entrance into a sales contract. In the unlikely event that a product is unavailable, we will also inform you of the fact by email. In this case, no sales contract has been established.
§ 4 SHIPMENT AND DELIVERY
We strive to the very best of our ability to meet our scheduled delivery dates. In the case of delivery delays resulting from extenuating circumstances that were unknown to us at the time of the order placement and are beyond our control, delivery time may be lengthened to a reasonable extent.
If expedient order processing requires partial shipment, you will naturally incur no extra fees through the partial delivery. Provided that nothing else is agreed upon, the shipment will go to the shipping address provided by the customer. With the method of payment "cash on delivery", the shipping and billing addresses must be identical.

Paulina e.K. reserves the right to eliminate the possibility of any of these methods of payment.

§ 8. RIGHT OF REVOCATION
You may declare the revocation of your contractual statement within 14 days , without giving any reason, in written form (e.g. letter, fax, email) or, in the event that the item has been transferred before the expiry of this revocation period, by returning the item. The revocation period commences after receiving these instructions in written form, but not before the receipt of the goods and before we have fullfilled our information requirements according to Article 246 § 2 in conjunction with §1 Abs. 1 and 2 EGBGB as well as our information requirements corresponding to § 312e Abs. 1 Line 1 BGB in conjunction with Article 246 § 3 EGBGB. To ensure the return deadline is met, the timely posting of the return articles or the revocation is sufficient.
The revocation is to be addressed to:
Paulina e. K.
owner: Peggy Hillig
Lochhamer Schlag 10b
Consequences of revocation
In case of a valid revocation, all mutually received benefits as well as emoluments taken (e.g. interest), if applicable, are to be recompensed by either side. If you are unable or partially unable to make restitution to us for the merchandise or can only return it in a deteriorated condition, then you must insofar compensate for its value where applicable. This does not apply if the deterioration occured during the normal testing the product - as would be the case in a retail store. Basically you can fulfill your legal obligation to compensate for lost value by using the goods as intended and not using them as if they were your own property, refraining from any action that affects the value.
Items that can be shipped by parcel are to be returned at our risk. You are obliged to bear the costs of the return shipment, if the merchandise delivered corresponds to the merchandise ordered, and if the price of the merchandise to be returned does not exceed an amount of 40 Euros, or if at the time of the return you have not yet provided the equivalent value of the product or a contractually agreed upon partial payment. In all other cases, the return shipment for you is free of charge. Items that cannot be repackaged for return will be picked up. All obligations for return payment must be fulfilled within 30 days. The grace period begins with the sending of your return statement or with the arrival of the product at our establishment.
End of revocation instruction
§ 9 GUARANTEES AND LIABILITY
We are not liable in cases of negligence as long as fundamental contractual obligations have not been broken due to said negligence. Our liability for contractual and non-contractual indemnity claims for the compensation for typical and foreseeable damages is limited, however, this does not apply if the damage is due to negligence or deliberate intention. This applies even to damages that a legal representative or servant has culpably caused.
The aforementioned liability limitations do not apply in the case of injury to life, body, or health, for a defect after the acceptance of liability of a guarantee for the quality of the product, and in the case of fraudulent faults of omission relating to defects.
