§ 1 Scope, subject matter of the contract and identity of the seller

(1) The following provisions apply to all contracts between me, namely

<First name, last name>
<Zip code, city>

as the seller, and you as the buyer regarding the sale and delivery of the items I offer via the Etsy Internet platform.

§ 2 Consumers and entrepreneurs
(1) My offers are aimed at both consumers and entrepreneurs.

(2) A consumer in this sense is any natural person who concludes the contract with me for purposes that cannot predominantly be attributed to their commercial or independent professional activity.

(3) An entrepreneur in this sense is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding the contract with me, is acting in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.

§ 3 Agreements and information on the conclusion of the contract

(1) The individual technical steps that lead to the conclusion of the contract, the conclusion of the contract itself and the correction options are carried out in accordance with the following provisions.

(2) If I list an article on Etsy, the activation of the article page on Etsy constitutes a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract under the conditions contained in the article page.

(3) The Etsy terms and conditions apply to the conclusion of the contract. A link to the Etsy terms and conditions can be found at the bottom of every Etsy page.

In the Etsy terms and conditions, the conclusion of the contract is regulated as follows depending on the respective format of the offer:

"§ 6 Offer formats and conclusion of contract (...)

2. If a seller uses the Etsy services to list an item in auction or fixed price format, they make a binding offer to conclude a contract for that item. They determine a starting or fixed price and a deadline within which the offer can be accepted (offer duration). If the seller sets a minimum price in the auction format, the offer is subject to the suspensive condition that the minimum price is reached.

3. The seller can also provide offers in auction format with a Buy Now function. This can be exercised by a buyer as long as no bid has been made on the item or a minimum price has not yet been reached. Etsy reserves the right to change this function in the future. (...)

4. For fixed price items, the buyer accepts the offer by clicking the "Buy Now" button and then confirming. For fixed-price items for which the seller has selected the "immediate payment" option, the buyer accepts the offer by clicking the "Buy Now" button and completing the payment process that follows immediately. The buyer can also accept offers for multiple items by placing the items in the shopping cart (if available) and completing the payment process that follows immediately.
5. In auctions, the buyer accepts the offer by placing a bid. Acceptance is subject to the suspensive condition that the buyer is the highest bidder after the end of the offer period. A bid expires if another buyer makes a higher bid during the offer period. (...)
6. If the seller terminates the offer prematurely, a contract is concluded between the seller and the highest bidder, unless the seller was entitled to withdraw the offer and cancel the existing bids.
7. Buyers can only withdraw bids if there is a legitimate reason to do so. After a legitimate bid withdrawal, no contract is concluded between the user, who is again the highest bidder after the auction has ended due to the bid withdrawal, and the seller.
8. In certain categories, the seller can add a price suggestion function to their offer. The price suggestion function enables buyers and sellers to negotiate the price for an item. (...)
11. If an item is deleted from Etsy before the end of the offer period, no effective contract is concluded between the buyer and the seller."
(4) Purchase via the "Buy Now" or "Bid" function
By clicking on the "Buy Now" or "Bid" buttons on the item pages, you are not making a binding contractual declaration. Even after this, you have the option of checking the information you have provided and correcting it using the "Back" function of your Internet browser or cancelling the purchase. This option is no longer available until you have made a binding contractual declaration. The action by which you make a binding contractual declaration when making a purchase and the contract is concluded can be seen from the menu navigation on Etsy.

(5) Purchase via the shopping cart
If a purchase via the shopping cart is offered, place the goods you intend to buy in the "shopping cart" by clicking the "Add to cart" button on the item page. The "shopping cart" will then be displayed. You can also access the "shopping cart" using the corresponding button in the navigation bar and make changes there at any time. After you have called up the "Continue to purchase" page and entered the delivery address and selected the payment method, all order data will be displayed again on the order overview page.

If you select "PayPal" as the payment method, you will first be taken to a PayPal login window. After you have successfully logged in to PayPal, you will be redirected to the order overview page on Etsy.

Before you submit the order, you have the opportunity to check all the information again, change it - this can also be done using the "Back" function of your Internet browser - or cancel the purchase.

If you click the "Buy and pay" button, you declare your legally binding acceptance of the offer. This concludes the purchase contract.

(6) Purchase using the "Price suggestion" function
If the "Price suggestion" function is offered, you have the opportunity to make me a counter offer. This is done by clicking the "Send price proposal" button on the article page, entering your price proposal on the following page, selecting the "Check price proposal" button and confirming the "Send price proposal" button on the following page. This represents a binding offer. You are bound to the price proposal sent to me for two days. If I accept your price proposal, the purchase contract is concluded.

(7) The order is processed and all information required in connection with the conclusion of the contract is sent by email. You are therefore obliged to ensure that the email address you provide to me is correct and that the receipt of emails is technically guaranteed, ie in particular that it is not blocked by SPAM filters, for example.

§ 4 Storage of the contract text and language of the contract

(1) I do not store the complete contract text. Before you send the order, you can print out the contract data using the print function of your Internet browser or save it electronically. After I have received your order, the order data, the general terms and conditions, including the information required by law for distance selling contracts, will be sent to you again by email.

(2) The language available for concluding the contract is German.

Etsy has its own data protection declaration, which you can find at the following link: https://www.etsy.com/de/legal/privacy/ . As part of your registration with Etsy, you have consented to Etsy sending us your personal data for the purpose of contract processing. Specifically, this is the data that we need to fulfill the contract concluded between us. This includes in particular your name and address details as well as the services used. This data is stored by us. We do not collect or store any other personal data concerning you.

Purpose of data processing
The processing itself is carried out on the basis of your order and serves to be able to process your order and to fulfill the contract concluded between us. Specifically, we use the data transmitted to us by Etsy in particular to

Identify you as our customer,
Process, fulfill and process your order,
Contact us,
Invoice you,

Assert contractual claims against you.

Transfer of data to third parties
We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
you have expressly consented to this in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 Letter a of GDPR,

Legal basis
The legal basis for the processing of your data, with regard to the processing of your order, is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. This also applies to the processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to protect one of our legitimate interests or that of a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Storage period and data deletion

Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you based on a balance of interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for reasons arising from your particular situation. This is particularly the case if the data processing is not necessary to fulfill a contract. If you exercise your right of objection, we will ask you to explain the reasons.
