KG, Stadtwaldgürtel 42, 50931 Cologne, Germany, phone number: + 49 221 430 640 30, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, registered in the commercial register of the Local Court Cologne under HRA 26185, represented by the managing directors Alexander T. Müller and Jens Wundenberg, international VAT-number: DE 2393 90743 (hereinafter “SK Gaming”) in connection with the sale and delivery of goods (fan merchandise) via the online store at www.store.sk-gaming.com shall be provided exclusively on the basis of these General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter: “T & Cs”).
1.2 Deviating general terms and conditions of the customer do not apply unless SK Gaming expressly agrees to their validity in writing.
2. Formation of contract
2.1 The presentation and advertising of goods in the online store does not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract.
2.2 The product-describing data, in particular illustrations, drawings, descriptions, dimensional, weight, performance and consumption data, as well as data relating to the usability of devices for new technologies, are non-binding insofar as the delivered goods deviate only insignificantly (e.g. due to production) from these data.
2.3 Before the binding submission of the order, the customer can identify possible input errors by carefully reading the information displayed on the screen. An effective technical method for better recognition of input errors can be the enlargement function of the browser, which is used to enlarge the display on the screen. The customer can continuously correct his entries via the usual keyboard and mouse functions before the binding submission of the order within the electronic ordering process. In addition, all entries are displayed again in a confirmation window before the binding submission of the order and can also be corrected there using the usual keyboard and mouse functions.
2.4 By clicking the button concluding the ordering process the customer places a binding order to conclude a purchase contract regarding the goods in the shopping cart. Immediately before placing the order, the customer can check his/her details again and correct them if necessary. After receipt of the order, the customer will receive a confirmation of receipt by e-mail or post, which also constitutes acceptance of the offer. Shipping and delivery of the goods are deemed acceptance of the offer.
2.5 The contractual language is English.
2.6 The order data of the customer are stored by SK Gaming; however, for reasons of security, such data cannot be retrieved by the customer directly. However, the customer can also easily archive the order details by either downloading the T&Cs and using the appropriate commands in the browser to save the order summary appearing on the last page of the online shop ordering process, or by waiting to receive the automatic order confirmation which SK Gaming also sends to the customer’s nominated e-mail address upon completion of the order. The order confirmation e-mail includes the order details and the T&Cs and can be easily printed out or saved with the customer’s e-mail program.
3. Right of withdrawal
3.1 If the customer is a consumer (i.e., a natural person who places the order for a purpose that can neither be attributed to his/her commercial or independent professional activity), the customer is entitled to a right of withdrawal in accordance with the statutory provisions which are reproduced hereinafter as follows.
3.2 Right of withdrawal: The customer has the right to withdraw from this contract within fourteen days without giving any reasons. The withdrawal period is fourteen days from the day on which the customer or a third party appointed by the customer, who is not the carrier, has taken possession of the goods. In the event of a contract for multiple goods, the withdrawal period shall amount to fourteen days from the day on which the customer, or a third party appointed by the customer, who is not the carrier, took possession of the last item of the respective order.
In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the customer must notify SK Gaming (SK Gaming GmbH & Co. KG, Stadtwaldgürtel 42, 50931 Cologne, Germany, phone number: + 49 221 430 640 30, e-mail: email@example.com) by means of an unequivocal statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, or e-mail) about his/her decision to withdraw from this contract. For this purpose, you may use the model withdrawal form, however, this is not mandatory.
In order to comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient that the customer sends the notification before the end of the withdrawal period stating that he/she wishes to exercise his/her right of withdrawal.
3.2 Consequences of withdrawal: If the customer withdraws from this contract, SK Gaming shall reimburse the customer for all payments which it has received from the customer, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that the customer has chosen a type of delivery other than the least expensive standard delivery offered by SK Gaming) immediately and no later than within fourteen days from the day on which SK Gaming received the notification of the customer’s withdrawal from this contract. SK Gaming shall use the same means of payment for the refund which the customer used in the original transaction unless expressly agreed with the customer otherwise; under no circumstances will the customer be charged any fees in connection with said refund. SK Gaming may refuse to refund until the goods have been returned to it or until the customer has provided proof that the goods have been sent, whichever date is earlier.
The customer must immediately send back or return the goods to SK Gaming, in any case no later than fourteen days from the day on which the customer notifies SK Gaming of the withdrawal from the contract. This period is considered to be met if the customer sends the goods before the end of the fourteen-day period.
The customer bears the direct costs of returning the goods.
The customer is only required to compensate any depreciation in the value of the goods if this is attributed to any handling that is not necessary with respect to verifying the condition, characteristics, and function of the goods.
End of withdrawal policy
Notice: Exclusion of the right of withdrawal

There is no right of withdrawal if the customer is an entrepreneur in accordance with Paragraph 14 BGB (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, i.e. German Civil Code), i.e., a natural person or legal entity or a partnership with legal capacity, who or which is conducting their commercial or entrepreneurial activity in concluding the legal transaction.
