1) Scope of application
1.1 These General Terms and Conditions of Business (hereinafter referred to as "GTC") of the FTC - Functional Training Company GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "Seller"), apply to all contracts for the delivery of goods that a consumer or entrepreneur (hereinafter referred to as "Customer") enters into with Seller with respect to the goods displayed by Seller in its online store. The inclusion of the customer's own terms and conditions is hereby rejected, unless otherwise agreed.
1.2 For contracts for the delivery of vouchers, these General Terms and Conditions shall apply accordingly, unless otherwise expressly agreed.
1.3 For contracts for the delivery of tickets, these GTC shall apply accordingly, unless expressly agreed otherwise. These GTCs only regulate the sale of tickets for certain events specified in more detail in the seller's article description and not the execution of these events. For the execution of the events, the legal provisions in the relationship between the customer and the organizer as well as any terms and conditions of the organizer deviating from these shall apply exclusively. If the seller is not also the organizer, he is not liable for the proper execution of the event, for which the respective organizer is exclusively responsible.
1.4 Consumer in the sense of these terms and conditions is every natural person who concludes a legal transaction for purposes which can be attributed predominantly neither to his commercial nor his independent professional activity. Entrepreneur in the sense of these GTC is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity, which acts in exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding a legal transaction.
2) Conclusion of contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the Seller's online store do not represent binding offers on the part of the Seller, but serve to provide a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated into the seller's online store. After placing the selected goods in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the Customer submits a legally binding offer to enter into a contract for the goods in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the Customer can also submit the offer to the Seller by telephone, e-mail or online contact form.
2.3 The seller can accept the customer's offer within five days,
by sending the customer a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (fax or e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the customer is decisive, or
by delivering the ordered goods to the customer, whereby the receipt of the goods by the customer is decisive, or
by requesting the customer to pay after placing his order.
If there are several of the aforementioned alternatives, the contract is concluded at the time when one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. The period for acceptance of the offer begins on the day after the customer has sent the offer and ends with the expiry of the fifth day following 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.
2.5 If the payment method "Amazon Payments" is selected, payment shall be processed via the payment service provider Amazon Payments Europe s.c.a., 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as "Amazon"), subject to the Amazon Payments Europe User Agreement, which can be viewed at https://payments.amazon.de/help/201751590. If the customer selects "Amazon Payments" as the payment method within the scope of the online order process, he shall also issue a payment order to Amazon by clicking the button concluding the order process. In this case, the seller hereby declares acceptance of the customer's offer at the point in time when the customer initiates the payment transaction by clicking the button concluding the order process.
2.6 When an offer is submitted via the seller's online order form, the text of the contract is saved by the seller after the contract has been concluded and sent to the customer in text form (e.g. e-mail, fax or letter) after the customer has sent off his order. The Seller will not make the text of the contract accessible beyond this. If the Customer has set up a user account in the Seller's online store before sending his order, the order data will be archived on the Seller's website and can be accessed by the Customer free of charge via his password-protected user account by entering the relevant login data.
2.7 Before the binding submission of the order via the Seller's online order form, the Customer can identify possible input 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, which is used to enlarge the display on the screen. Within the electronic ordering process, the customer can correct his entries using the usual keyboard and mouse functions until he clicks on the button that concludes the ordering process.
2.8 Only the German language is available for the conclusion of the contract.
2.9 Order processing and contact are usually carried out by e-mail and automated order processing. The customer must ensure that the e-mail address provided by him for order processing is correct so that the e-mails sent by the seller can be received at this address. In particular, when using SPAM filters, the customer must ensure that all e-mails sent by the seller or third parties commissioned by the seller to process the order can be delivered.
3) Right of withdrawal
3.1 Consumers are generally entitled to a right of withdrawal.
3.2 More detailed information on the right of revocation is contained in the Seller's revocation instructions.
3.3 According to § 312g para. 2 No. 9 BGB, unless otherwise agreed, a right of revocation does not apply to contracts for the provision of services in connection with leisure activities if the contract provides for a specific date or period for the provision of such services. Accordingly, a right of revocation is also excluded in the case of contracts which relate to the sale of tickets for scheduled leisure events.
4) Prices and terms of payment

These include, for example, costs for the transfer of money through credit institutions (e.g. transfer fees, exchange rate fees) or import duties or taxes (e.g. customs duties). Such costs may also be incurred in relation to the transfer of money if the delivery is not to a country outside the European Union, but the customer makes the payment from a country outside the European Union.
4.3 The customer will be informed of the payment option/s in the seller's online store.
4.4 If the payment method "PayPal Credit" (payment by instalments via PayPal) is selected, the Seller assigns his payment claim to PayPal.

The seller reserves the right to refuse the customer the payment method "PayPal Credit" in case of a negative check result. If the payment method "PayPal Credit" is allowed by PayPal, the customer has to pay the invoice amount to PayPal according to the conditions determined by the seller and communicated to him in the seller's online store. In this case he can only pay to PayPal with debt discharging effect. However, even in the case of assignment of claims, the seller remains responsible for general customer inquiries, e.g. regarding the goods, delivery time, shipping, returns, complaints, declarations of revocation and shipments or credit notes.

If the direct debit is not honoured due to insufficient funds in the account or due to the provision of incorrect bank details, or if the customer objects to the debit although he is not entitled to do so, the customer shall bear the fees arising from the chargeback by the respective bank if he is responsible for this. The Seller reserves the right to carry out a credit check when selecting the SEPA direct debit payment method and to reject this payment method if the credit check is negative.
