Order process, entering into a contract, quantity limitation

Order process

Maison du Loup offers its customers a comprehensive range for all matters concerning domestic pets. By clicking on the products or product descriptions, the customer navigates to the product details, e.g. details regarding the product design, size or taste. The product is placed in the virtual shopping basket by entering the requested quantity and clicking on the shopping basket icon.

By clicking on the “shopping basket” button, displayed in the top right-hand corner of the online shop, the customer navigates to an overview page and at any time can check the goods in the virtual shopping basket and, where necessary, make changes.

If a customer does not wish to purchase additional goods, they can continue via the “To order/checkout” button. Registered customers can enter their user names and passwords here to automatically use their saved information for the order. Alternatively, the customer can register as a new customer and set up a customer account or continue the purchase without setting up a customer account. In such a case, the customer must enter their address and invoice information on the following page.

By further clicking on the “Continue” button, the customer reaches the penultimate order stage “Overview”. The customer has access to an overview of the order here with details of the price (including the statutory VAT) and details of the delivery service and costs.

The order is entered into by clicking on the “Buy” button. This means a binding offer has been made.

Entering into a contract

The images of the range in the online shop are intended as an illustration and do not constitute binding offers for sale. By completing the order process by clicking on the “Buy” button the customer makes a binding offer to enter into a purchase contract. The customer thereupon receives an automated confirmation of receipt of order by e-mail (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer. The contract with Maison du Loup is only concluded when Maison du Loup sends the ordered product to the customer and the shipping to the customer is confirmed by e-mail (shipping confirmation).

Quantity limitation

The offered goods are sold in customary domestic quantities only and only to persons of an age at which they are capable of entering into legal transactions.
