2) Conclusion of the contract
2.1 The product descriptions contained in the seller's online shop do not represent binding offers on the part of the seller, but serve to submit a binding offer by the customer.
2.2 The customer can submit the offer using the online order form integrated in the seller's online shop. After placing the selected goods or services in the virtual shopping cart and going through the electronic ordering process, the customer submits a legally binding contract offer for the goods or services contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. If the customer is an entrepreneur, he can also submit his legally binding offer by email.

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 accepting the offer begins on the day after the offer is sent by the customer and ends at the end of the 5th day following the sending of the offer. If the seller does not accept the customer's offer within the aforementioned period, this is deemed to be a rejection of the offer, with the result that the customer is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
