Terms and conditions of 1Liquid GmbH

Oberacker 8, 40489 Duesseldorf, Germany 

for distribution on http://www.1liquid.com

1. General

a. These terms and conditions are applicable for all products and services offered on http://www.1liquid.com. As the client points out its conditions of purchase and distribution contradictions may appear.


b. Individual contract agreements have priority over general terms and conditions.

2. How a contract is concluded

a. The service descriptions on our internet page - http://www.1liquid.com- do not constitute offers to conclude a purchase contract. Such an offer will only be made with the customer's online order via the contact form or by telephone or text order. The confirmation of receipt of the order subsequently sent by us does not constitute acceptance of this offer. The purchase contract is only concluded upon receipt of the order confirmation. The customer is no longer bound to his offer (this expires), if we have not within 5 calendar days (calculated from the receipt of the order from us), the declaration of acceptance.

b. If a declaration of acceptance received late by the customer has been sent in such a way that it would have been received in due time and if the customer had to recognize this, he must notify us of the delay immediately after receipt of the declaration, unless it has already been done before. If the customer delays the sending of the advertisement, then the acceptance is considered as not late. Incidentally, the delayed acceptance by us shall be deemed to be a new offer to conclude a purchase contract that the customer can accept by express acceptance of acceptance or by accepting the goods.

c. On the contractual relations between the purchase contracting parties the right(law) of the Federal Republic of Germany finds application. From this legal choice are excluded the compelling consumer protection rules of the country(land) in which the customer has his(its) usual stay. The application of the UN-purchase right (CSIG) is expelled.


d. The product presentations in this online shop are always without obligation and cannot be seen as an offer in a legal sense. The product presentation invites the client to put articles into the shopping cart, and to submit a legally binding offer by ordering the products.


e. The client has the opportunity to put the desired products into the shopping cart. Therefore, the client has to click on the button on the respective product page. A not desired but already selected item can be removed from the shopping card at any time by calling up the shopping cart and clicking on the delete button.

Once all the desired products are located in the shopping cart, the client can initiate the payment.

The client can now check the accuracy of the selection and input. Mistakes can be corrected by clicking on the respective edit-button. By clicking on the order button, a binding offer for the conclusion of a sales contract is placed. The contract is concluded by the acceptance of the offer.

c.   Button „check out with PayPal “ 

By selecting “PayPal-Plus” as payment method the client is redirected to the PayPal log in page by clicking on the “check out with PayPal” button.
