A purchase contract is concluded with SMP GmbH. Detailed information on the company Sports Management Program GmbH can be found in the imprint.

a) Validity

The deliveries, services and offers of SMP GmbH are made exclusively on the basis of these terms and conditions; we do not recognise any terms and conditions of the customer that conflict with or deviate from our terms and conditions, unless we have expressly agreed to their validity. Contractual performance on our part shall in this respect not be deemed to be consent to contractual terms and conditions deviating from our terms and conditions. These terms and conditions shall also apply as a framework agreement to all further legal transactions between the contracting parties. The version of these terms and conditions current at the time of the conclusion of the contract shall be authoritative.

b) Conclusion of contract

A contract offer by a customer requires an order confirmation. The dispatch of the goods ordered by the customer shall also effect the conclusion of the contract. The viewing of the products does not constitute a legal and binding offer. Only by registering, entering your data in full, placing your items in the shopping basket, checking, selecting the desired method of payment and finally clicking on the button "Order now subject to payment" do you place a binding order. This is followed by the confirmation of receipt, which you will receive immediately after the binding order by means of an automated email. With this confirmation of receipt by email, the purchase contract is concluded, taking into account the credit card charge when selecting the payment method "credit card" or the amount received on our account when selecting the payment method "cash in advance".

Should agreements be made between the customer and SMP GmbH after the order has been placed, for example for the proper execution of the order, these shall only be binding in written form.

c) Price

Unless expressly stated otherwise, all prices quoted by us are inclusive of value added tax. Should the wage costs change due to internal company accounts or should other cost centres relevant for the calculation or costs necessary for the provision of services such as those for materials, energy, transport, external work, etc. change, we shall be entitled to increase or reduce the prices accordingly. In the case of consumer transactions, the price adjustment clause of this point shall not apply. Additional costs will be incurred for subsequent order changes, which will be agreed in writing. They thus become binding and will be invoiced to the customer.

The invoice will be sent to the customer by e-mail or by post together with the delivery of the ordered goods.

d) Performance

On customers can choose their tennis accessories according to type and colour.

e) Terms of payment, interest on arrears

Payments by the customer shall only be deemed to have been made at the time of receipt on our business account.

In the event of default of payment by the customer, our company shall also be entitled to demand compound interest from the date of handover of the goods.

f) Withdrawal from the contract

In the event of default of acceptance (e.g. withdrawal of the bank transfer) or other important reasons (e.g. cash on delivery payment was agreed), such as in particular insolvency of the customer or rejection of bankruptcy for lack of assets, as well as in the event of default of payment by the customer, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract, insofar as it has not yet been completely fulfilled by both parties. In the event of withdrawal, we shall be entitled, if the customer is at fault, to choose between claiming a lump-sum compensation of 15% of the gross invoice amount or compensation for the actual damage incurred. In the event of default of payment by the customer, we shall be released from all further performance and delivery obligations and shall be entitled to withhold outstanding deliveries or services and to demand advance payments or securities or to withdraw from the contract after setting a reasonable grace period. If the customer - without being entitled to do so - withdraws from the contract or requests its cancellation, we have the choice of insisting on the fulfilment of the contract or agreeing to the cancellation of the contract; in the latter case, the customer is obliged to pay, at our discretion, liquidated damages amounting to 15% of the gross invoice amount or the actual damage incurred. In the case of distance contracts (§§ 5a ff Consumer Protection Act), the consumer may withdraw from the contract within 7 working days, whereby Saturdays do not count as working days. The period begins with the day of receipt of the goods by the consumer or, in the case of services, with the day of conclusion of the contract.
