Our website uses the “+1”-button of the social network Google, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. The button is characterized with a “+1”.
The „+1“ button is shorthand for “this is pretty cool” or “look at that”. The button is not used to track your visits to the Web.

The visited web page of our website is automatically communicated to the Google server. When displaying a Google „+1“-button your browsing history is not permanently logged, but only for the duration of up to two weeks.

EKOMI CUSTOMER RATINGS
To facilitate feedback from the customers of our online shop and to support quality management, we have integrated the customer rating software of eKomi – the Feedback Company in our web sites. Customers can give a rating of our online shop after their purchase. For this purpose, we should like to send you an e-mail after we have dispatched the goods to you and ask you for your rating. You can of course object to such use and/or can refuse to give a customer rating.
eKomi is committed to handling the data transmitted to them in conformity with data protection standards. They take every organisational and technological measure for the privacy and security of your data. In order to obtain an authentic and valuable feedback from our customers, these are polled by means of a web-based Social Commerce SaaS technology. eKomi at first does not get any customer data from our online shop data base via the interface. What is transmitted to eKomi is just a unique ID to enable identification and create a link for the rating. It is only in an arbitration process that eKomi as the arbitrator obtains the relevant e-mail address to establish contact. To that end, the e-mail address is used once again for verification purposes and for communication between the customer, our online shop and eKomi.
By placing your order, you agree to being sent an electronic request for a rating. You are free to ignore the request or, in advance, flag eKomi e-mails for spam. By providing your rating, however, you would be a great help to ourselves and other customers. Disposal and Enviromental Protection Our suppliers have fulfilled their reporting duties with the German Federal Environmental Agency (Umweltbundesamt).
MISCELLANEOUS (“THE SMALL PRINT”)
Up, until and including 12.06.2014 it is essential: If you make use of your right of revocation, you have to bear the regular costs of the return shipment if the product delivered conforms to the product ordered and if the price of the item that is returned does not exceed 40 euros (€), or if, where the item is more expensive, you have not rendered consideration or have not effected an agreed partial payment at the time of the revocation. In all other cases we shall reimburse you for the return expenses.
To exercise your right of cancellation, you have to make a formal statement of intent. For example you must fill out and send to us the cancellation form. When you return the goods to us within the returns period without any comment (meaning you return the goods because of deficit or non-suitability), this also counts as a notice of cancellation.
Despite careful stockpiling, it is possible that an article is faster out of stock than expected.. We therefore do not guarantee delivery. The maxim is: while stocks last. This applies in particular to special offers / promotional offers.
Besides the articles on offer you also get information on their availability. This information does not indicate binding or guaranteed shipping dates. It is intended to supply just estimations and orientation values.
Unless stated otherwise, all textile fabrics are made of 100 % cotton.
Articles made of organic material (e.g. wood, coral, horn) are mostly handmade, so deviations in colour and grain and slight deviations as to size are possible.
Due to the screen display, there may be minimal colour deviations.
Should one of the forgoing provisions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The invalid provision shall be replaced by a valid one that reflects as closely as possible the economic intention of the invalid provision.
The above conditions of sale, in the version as amended from time to time, shall apply to all purchase orders without exception.
