Article 2 Introduction

2.At the time of placing an order with Diethard Stein, the customer expresses an intention to conclude a contract. Diethard Stein will reply by e-mail to the customer confirming receipt. This confirmation of order does not constitute an acceptance of the offer, but rather the fulfilment of the legal obligation of Section 312e Para I No. 3 of the German Civil Code.

The acceptance takes the form of dispatch of the goods ordered or by sending a confirmation of dispatch.
