2.1 VE is making a sales offer for the merchandise presented in its shop. By transmitting the order using the button “BUY” the customer accepts the sales offer. VE shall confirm the conclusion of the contract by e-mail (contract confirmation).
2.2 All offers by VE are non obligatory. Offers are only valid under the condition of deliverability of the product offered. VE has the right to nullify an agreement to buy a product. VE shall inform the customer by e-mail of any impediments preventing the delivery from being made, or of any other circumstances that might prevent contractual performance.

3.4 Return debits are associated with a high effort and costs for VE. In the case of a return debit (in absence of a required coverage of the bank account, due to expiration of the bank account or unauthorized objection of the account holder), the customer authorizes VE and his bank to submit the direct debit for each overdue payment obligation once more. In such a case, the customer is obligated to pay a processing fee of 9.00 Euro per return debit. Further claims are reserved. The customer is granted the possibility to prove that lower or no costs were issued by the return debit. In view of the effort and the costs of return debits and to avoid the processing fee, VE asks the customer in the event of a withdrawal or a rescission of the purchase contract, a return or a complaint, not to contradict the direct debit. In such a case, after consultation with VE, the rescission of payment takes place by remittance of the appropriate amount or by credit.
