1) Geltungsbereich

1.1 Diese Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen (nachfolgend "AGB") des WE NORWEGIANS Europe ApS, handelnd unter "We Norwegians" (nachfolgend "Verkäufer"), gelten für alle Verträge über die Lieferung von Waren, die ein Verbraucher oder Unternehmer (nachfolgend „Kunde“) mit dem Verkäufer hinsichtlich der vom Verkäufer in seinem Online-Shop dargestellten Waren abschließt. Hiermit wird der Einbeziehung von eigenen Bedingungen des Kunden widersprochen, es sei denn, es ist etwas anderes vereinbart.

1.2 Für Verträge über die Lieferung von Gutscheinen gelten diese AGB entsprechend, sofern insoweit nicht ausdrücklich etwas Abweichendes geregelt ist.

1.3 Verbraucher im Sinne dieser AGB ist jede natürliche Person, die ein Rechtsgeschäft zu Zwecken abschließt, die überwiegend weder ihrer gewerblichen noch ihrer selbständigen beruflichen Tätigkeit zugerechnet werden können. Unternehmer im Sinne dieser AGB ist eine natürliche oder juristische Person oder eine rechtsfähige Personengesellschaft, die bei Abschluss eines Rechtsgeschäfts in Ausübung ihrer gewerblichen oder selbständigen beruflichen Tätigkeit handelt.

2) Vertragsschluss

2.1 Die im Online-Shop des Verkäufers enthaltenen Produktbeschreibungen stellen keine verbindlichen Angebote seitens des Verkäufers dar, sondern dienen zur Abgabe eines verbindlichen Angebots durch den Kunden.

2.2 Der Kunde kann das Angebot über das in den Online-Shop des Verkäufers integrierte Online-Bestellformular abgeben. Dabei gibt der Kunde, nachdem er die ausgewählten Waren in den virtuellen Warenkorb gelegt und den elektronischen Bestellprozess durchlaufen hat, durch Klicken des den Bestellvorgang abschließenden Buttons ein rechtlich verbindliches Vertragsangebot in Bezug auf die im Warenkorb enthaltenen Waren ab.

2.3 Der Verkäufer kann das Angebot des Kunden innerhalb von fünf Tagen annehmen,

  • indem er dem Kunden eine schriftliche Auftragsbestätigung oder eine Auftragsbestätigung in Textform (Fax oder E-Mail) übermittelt, wobei insoweit der Zugang der Auftragsbestätigung beim Kunden maßgeblich ist, oder
  • indem er dem Kunden die bestellte Ware liefert, wobei insoweit der Zugang der Ware beim Kunden maßgeblich ist, oder
  • indem er den Kunden nach Abgabe von dessen Bestellung zur Zahlung auffordert.

Liegen mehrere der vorgenannten Alternativen vor, kommt der Vertrag in dem Zeitpunkt zustande, in dem eine der vorgenannten Alternativen zuerst eintritt. Die Frist zur Annahme des Angebots beginnt am Tag nach der Absendung des Angebots durch den Kunden zu laufen und endet mit dem Ablauf des fünften Tages, welcher auf die Absendung des Angebots folgt. Nimmt der Verkäufer das Angebot des Kunden innerhalb vorgenannter Frist nicht an, so gilt dies als Ablehnung des Angebots mit der Folge, dass der Kunde nicht mehr an seine Willenserklärung gebunden ist.

2.4 Bei Auswahl einer von PayPal angebotenen Zahlungsart erfolgt die Zahlungsabwicklung über den Zahlungsdienstleister PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (im Folgenden: „PayPal“), unter Geltung der PayPal-Nutzungsbedingungen, einsehbar unter https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full oder - falls der Kunde nicht über ein PayPal-Konto verfügt – unter Geltung der Bedingungen für Zahlungen ohne PayPal-Konto, einsehbar unter https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacywax-full. Zahlt der Kunde mittels einer im Online-Bestellvorgang auswählbaren von PayPal angebotenen Zahlungsart, erklärt der Verkäufer schon jetzt die Annahme des Angebots des Kunden in dem Zeitpunkt, in dem der Kunde den den Bestellvorgang abschließenden Button anklickt.

2.5 Bei Auswahl der Zahlungsart "Amazon Payments" erfolgt die Zahlungsabwicklung über den Zahlungsdienstleister Amazon Payments Europe s.c.a., 38 avenue John F. Kennedy, L-1855 Luxemburg (im Folgenden: „Amazon“), unter Geltung der Amazon Payments Europe Nutzungsvereinbarung, einsehbar unter https://payments.amazon.de/help/201751590. Wählt der Kunde im Rahmen des Online-Bestellvorgangs „Amazon Payments“ als Zahlungsart aus, erteilt er durch Klicken des den Bestellvorgang abschließenden Buttons zugleich auch einen Zahlungsauftrag an Amazon. Für diesen Fall erklärt der Verkäufer schon jetzt die Annahme des Angebots des Kunden in dem Zeitpunkt, in dem der Kunde durch Klicken des den Bestellvorgang abschließenden Buttons den Zahlungsvorgang auslöst.

2.6 Bei der Abgabe eines Angebots über das Online-Bestellformular des Verkäufers wird der Vertragstext nach dem Vertragsschluss vom Verkäufer gespeichert und dem Kunden nach Absendung von dessen Bestellung in Textform (z. B. E-Mail, Fax oder Brief) übermittelt. Eine darüber hinausgehende Zugänglichmachung des Vertragstextes durch den Verkäufer erfolgt nicht. Sofern der Kunde vor Absendung seiner Bestellung ein Nutzerkonto im Online-Shop des Verkäufers eingerichtet hat, werden die Bestelldaten auf der Website des Verkäufers archiviert und können vom Kunden über dessen passwortgeschütztes Nutzerkonto unter Angabe der entsprechenden Login-Daten kostenlos abgerufen werden.

2.7 Vor verbindlicher Abgabe der Bestellung über das Online-Bestellformular des Verkäufers kann der Kunde mögliche Eingabefehler durch aufmerksames Lesen der auf dem Bildschirm dargestellten Informationen erkennen. Ein wirksames technisches Mittel zur besseren Erkennung von Eingabefehlern kann dabei die Vergrößerungsfunktion des Browsers sein, mit deren Hilfe die Darstellung auf dem Bildschirm vergrößert wird. Seine Eingaben kann der Kunde im Rahmen des elektronischen Bestellprozesses so lange über die üblichen Tastatur- und Mausfunktionen korrigieren, bis er den den Bestellvorgang abschließenden Button anklickt.

2.8 Für den Vertragsschluss steht ausschließlich die deutsche Sprache zur Verfügung.

2.9 Die Bestellabwicklung und Kontaktaufnahme finden in der Regel per E-Mail und automatisierter Bestellabwicklung statt. Der Kunde hat sicherzustellen, dass die von ihm zur Bestellabwicklung angegebene E-Mail-Adresse zutreffend ist, so dass unter dieser Adresse die vom Verkäufer versandten E-Mails empfangen werden können. Insbesondere hat der Kunde bei dem Einsatz von SPAM-Filtern sicherzustellen, dass alle vom Verkäufer oder von diesem mit der Bestellabwicklung beauftragten Dritten versandten E-Mails zugestellt werden können.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Informal Negotiations

To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Use (each a "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.

Binding Arbitration

If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved through binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ("AAA Consumer Rules"), both of which are available at the AAA website: www.adr.org. Your arbitration fees and your share of arbitrator compensation shall be governed by the AAA Consumer Rules and, where appropriate, limited by the AAA Consumer Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone, or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by either Party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Except where otherwise required by the applicable AAA rules or applicable law, the arbitration will take place in Summit County, Utah. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

If for any reason, a Dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration, the Dispute shall be commenced or prosecuted in the state and federal courts located in Utah, and the Parties hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction, and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in such state and federal courts. Application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) is excluded from these Terms of Use.

In no event shall any Dispute brought by either Party related in any way to the Site be commenced more than one (1) years after the cause of action arose. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable, and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

 

Restrictions

The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration

The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
