1. Scope

These Terms and Conditions apply to all purchases made on weparto.com regardless of whether the purchaser is a consumer or business.

A consumer is any natural person which concludes a legal transaction for a purpose that cannot be ascribed to a commercial or self-employed professional occupation. Business is a natural or legal person or a legal partnership that, in the course of entering into a legal transaction, is acting in the exercise of its commercial or self-employed professional occupation.

With regard to businesses, these terms and conditions also apply to future business relationships, without us having to refer to them again. If the businesses use conflicting or supplementary terms and conditions, its validity is hereby contradicted; they only become part of the contract if we have expressly consented to them.

For businesses: the risk of accidental loss or damage to the goods sold is transferred to you as soon as we hand over the goods to the carrier, freight forwarder or the person or agent appointed to deliver the consignment.

Among traders, the obligation to examine and give notice of product defects is regulated in § 377 HGB. If you refrain from doing so, the goods are deemed to have been approved, unless there are defects that were not identifiable during the examination. This does not apply if we are guilty of malicious silence with regard to a defect.
