The customer’s general terms and conditions shall apply only if approved by FAIR bicycle in writing.
2. Offerings and Formation of Purchase Agreement
The presentation of products in FAIR bicycle’s online shop shall not constitute a legally binding offer, but rather a non-binding invitation to place an order. Errors in the presentation shall be reserved. The right to customary deviations from the images and descriptions in FAIR bicycle’s brochures, price lists and catalogs and to deviations that result from legal regulations or constitute technical improvements and the right to replace parts with equivalent parts so far as they do not compromise the usability of the respective product for the contractually agreed-upon purpose shall be reserved.
The customer can move products to the virtual shopping cart with a click of the mouse. All products selected will be shown in the virtual shopping cart to enable the customer to review his/her order.

The customer shall be bound by said offer for the duration of the period indicated in the product description. The customer’s order shall be forwarded to FAIR bicycle and the customer shall receive an electronic order confirmation by e-mail without undue delay.

If the customer is a consumer, the shipping risks shall be assumed by FAIR bicycle irrespective of the shipping method.
