    2. These GTC apply regardless of the type of contract conclusion and therefore also in the case of a contract conclusion using exclusively means of remote communication. The GTC apply to the entire business relationship between Championships and the customer, even if they have not been expressly agreed upon in individual cases. The version of the GTC valid at the time of the conclusion of the contract is authoritative. Deviating or supplementary agreements, which are negotiated in detail by both parties, take precedence over the provisions of these GTC, provided that these deviating or supplementary agreements have been confirmed in writing by Championships.
    3. Championships' customers are understood to be both consumers and businesses as defined by the Consumer Protection Act.
    4. The validity of the customer's general terms and conditions, in particular his terms and conditions of purchase, is expressly excluded.

    1. All offers of the Championships are subject to change and non-binding. They can be subsequently changed, supplemented or revoked by Championships at any time before the conclusion of the contract. 
    2. The customer's order is considered a binding offer to conclude a purchase contract for the ordered goods. The purchase contract between Championships and the customer is concluded by Championships either expressly accepting the customer's order or actually complying with it by delivering the ordered goods, provided that this delivery is made within 30 days of the customer's order being received by Championships. After the expiration of this 30-day period, the customer is no longer bound to his offer and the purchase contract is considered as not concluded. 
    3. The conclusion of the contract with companies is subject to the proviso that Championships is entitled not to perform or to perform only partially in the event of incorrect or improper third-party delivery. In case of non-availability or only partial availability of the ordered goods, the entrepreneur will be informed by Championships immediately. 
    4. Only declarations made by its managing directors or by employees who have a corresponding written power of attorney are binding for the Championships. Declarations made by other employees of the Championships are not binding on them.

    1. All goods delivered by Championships to the customer remain the property of Championships until full payment is received.
    2. The customer is obliged to treat the goods with care during the existence of the retention of title. Insofar as maintenance and/or inspection work is required, the customer shall carry this out at its own expense.
    3. Prior to the acquisition of ownership, the customer is only entitled to resell, pledge or otherwise transfer to third parties goods to which Championships retains title with the prior written consent of Championships. If a third party asserts rights to the goods subject to retention of title in the context of execution or insolvency proceedings, the customer must immediately notify the Championships thereof in writing and inform the third party of the Championships' ownership.
    4. Championships is entitled to withdraw from the contract and demand the return of the goods in case of breach of contract by the customer, especially in case of default of payment.
    5. In the event of a resale of the goods by a customer who is an entrepreneur, the customer already now assigns to Championships all claims in the amount of the invoice amount that accrue to it against a third party as a result of the resale and undertakes to make a corresponding note in its books or on its invoices. The Championships expressly accepts this assignment.
  3. Rights of withdrawal of the consumer
    1. If the customer is a consumer in the sense of the KSchG, he/she has the right to withdraw from the contract within 14 days without giving reasons according to § 11 FAGG if the contract was concluded exclusively using means of distance communication or outside the business premises of the Championships (the business premises also include exhibition stands of the Championships). 
    2. There is no right of withdrawal if the goods are to be manufactured according to customer specifications or are clearly tailored to personal needs.
    3. The withdrawal period for service contracts begins on the day of the conclusion of the contract, for purchase contracts and other contracts aimed at the acquisition of goods against payment.

    1. If the Championships have not fulfilled their duty to inform about the right of withdrawal, the withdrawal period is extended by twelve months. If the Championships make up for their duty to inform about the right of withdrawal within twelve months, the period ends within 14 days from receipt of this information.
    2. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal according to § 11 FAGG, the customer has to inform Championships by means of a clear declaration about his decision to withdraw from this contract.

For this repayment, Championships will use the same means of payment that the customer used in the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with the customer. No fee will be charged for the repayment.
