1. scope, applicable language
Subject to individual agreements and arrangements which take precedence over these GTC, the following GTC in the version valid at the time of the order shall apply exclusively to the business relationship between us and our customers. Conflicting terms and conditions of the customer shall not apply unless we agree to their validity in advance and expressly in writing.
The German language shall be deemed agreed as the language of the contract, order and business.
Due to legal regulations on the mail order business with prescription and prescription-only medicines, we do not accept orders for prescription and prescription-only medicines without exception. Orders for medicinal products are only permitted within the scope of normal personal needs.
2 Conclusion of the contract
The presentation of the products in the online shop www.flow-flex.com does not constitute a legally binding offer on our part, but a non-binding online catalogue. By clicking on the button "Order subject to payment", you place a binding order for the goods contained in the shopping basket at that time. Confirmation of receipt of your order, together with acceptance of the order, will be sent immediately after submission by an automated e-mail entitled "Order confirmation" with the subject line "Your Flowflex order has been received! ". The purchase contract is only concluded with this e-mail confirmation.
Theordering process comprises a total of four steps:
In the first step, you select the desired items in the webshop and place them in your shopping cart. In the second step (after clicking on the button "Proceedto checkout") you enter your customer data including billing address and, if applicable, different delivery address in the corresponding forms. In the third step you choose how you would like to pay for your purchase (payment methods purchase on account, PayPal, credit cards EuroCard or Visa as well as instant transfer/online banking). The choices may vary depending on the country you specify as your billing address. In the fourth step, you should check all your details (e.g. name, address, payment method, ordered items or their quantity) again and correct them if necessary before you send us your binding order by clicking on the "Order subject to payment" button.
We reserve the right to exclude prospective buyers from delivery in individual cases due to pharmaceutical concerns. We further reserve the right to deliver to end consumers only in quantities customary in the trade due to our obligation to prevent the misuse of medicines and to reduce the order accordingly if necessary. The same applies to quota items that we offer as part of promotional offers.

Subject matter of the contract, quality, availability of goods
The subject matter of the contract are the goods specified by the customer within the scope of the order and stated in the order and/or order confirmation at the final prices stated in the web shop at the time of the order. Errors and omissions there are excepted, especially with regard to the availability of goods. Any price reductions after an order has been placed at a specific price cannot be taken into account in retrospect under any circumstances.
The quality of the ordered goods is determined by the product descriptions in the web shop. Illustrations on the website are symbolic photos; they may only inaccurately reflect the appearance and condition of the products; colours in particular may differ considerably for technical reasons (display on different output media, screens). The packaging of otherwise identical articles may look different in different European countries; the description of the characteristics of an article is decisive in each case. We cannot exclude the possibility that customers from different countries may see pictures that are not intended for products for customers in the respective country. Technical data, descriptions of weight, dimensions and performance are given as precisely as possible, but may show the usual deviations. The characteristics described here do not constitute defects in the products supplied by us.
If no copies of the product selected by the customer are available at the time of the customer's order, we will inform the customer of this in the order confirmation. If the product is permanently not available, we shall refrain from issuing a declaration of acceptance. In this case, a contract is not concluded.
Sales promotions, loyalty passes and the like initiated unilaterally by the manufacturer or wholesaler cannot be redeemed via the www.flow-flex.com online shop.
If the product designated by the customer in the order is only temporarily unavailable, we shall also inform the customer of this immediately in the order confirmation. In the event of a delay in delivery of more than two weeks, the customer has the right to withdraw from the contract. In this case, we shall also be entitled to withdraw from the contract. In this case, any payment already made by the customer will be refunded immediately.
Delivery is only possible in Austria, Germany, Italy and France. For orders from other EU countries, please contact us by e-mail (email@example.com). Delivery is made by sending the goods to the address provided by the customer against the stated packaging and shipping costs. If the customer wishes a special type of shipment, which is associated with additional costs, he has to bear these. The total delivery time consists of the handling time (preparation and packaging of the goods from the order confirmation by DIAN Medical GmbH) and the transport time by the transport company commissioned by DIAN Medical GmbH. The handling time is 1 to 3 working days and begins with the order confirmation to the customer.
The transport time within Austria is usually 2 to 3 working days and begins with the handover of the goods to the transport company commissioned by DIAN Medical GmbH. For deliveries to Germany, Italy, France, the transport time is usually up to 3 to 5 working days and begins with the handover of the goods to the transport company commissioned by DIAN Medical GmbH. In the event of delays in delivery, e.g. due to force majeure or traffic disruptions as well as other events for which the online shop is not responsible, no claim for damages can be made against us.
Transport risk regulation:
The risk of damage to or loss of the goods shall only pass to the customer (or a third party designated by the customer) upon delivery to the customer, provided that the customer is a consumer within the meaning of the KSchG. Partial deliveries are permissible if the goods are not immediately available and cannot be procured at short notice with reasonable effort.
If, however, the customer has concluded the contract of carriage himself/herself without making use of a selection option suggested by us, the risk shall pass as soon as the goods are handed over to the carrier. Unless the consumer had made use of a selection option suggested by us in writing - in this case the risk of loss would remain unchanged with DIAN Medical GmbH, Gersthoferstraße 11/15, 1180 Vienna.

The customer may only offset counterclaims that have been established by a court of law, are undisputed or have been recognised by us in writing.
The customer may only exercise a right of retention if the underlying claims arise from the same contractual relationship. § ZZ Retention of title; set-off; right of retention
(1) In the case of consumers, we retain ownership of the purchased item until the invoice amount has been paid in full. If you are an entrepreneur in the exercise of your commercial or independent professional activity, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, we retain ownership of the purchased item until all outstanding claims from the business relationship with you have been settled. The corresponding security rights are transferable to third parties. Extraordinary dispositions such as pledging or transfer by way of security are not permitted. In the event that the reserved goods are processed, mixed or combined with other material, we shall acquire co-ownership of the resulting products in the ratio of the value of the reserved goods to that of the other material. In the event of seizure of the goods subject to retention of title, you must inform us immediately and support us in securing our rights as well as reimburse us for all costs incurred in this respect, in particular those in connection with an objection process.
(2) You shall only have the right to offset if your counterclaims have been legally established or are undisputed or acknowledged by us or if there is insolvency on our part. Consumers also have the option of offsetting with counterclaims that are legally related to the consumer's liability. Furthermore, offsetting on your part is excluded. Furthermore, you only have a right of retention if and insofar as your counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.
(3) If the customer is in default with any payment obligations towards us, all existing claims against him shall become due immediately.
YY Retention of title; set-off; right of retention
(1) In the case of consumers, we retain ownership of the purchased item until the invoice amount has been paid in full. If you are an entrepreneur in the exercise of your commercial or independent professional activity, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, we reserve ownership of the purchased item until all outstanding claims from the business relationship with the purchaser have been settled. The corresponding security rights are transferable to third parties.
(2) You shall only have a right of set-off if your counterclaims have been legally established or are undisputed or acknowledged by us. Furthermore, you only have a right of retention if and insofar as your counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.
(3) If the customer is in default with any payment obligations towards us, all existing claims shall become due immediately.
The warranty period for goods delivered to entrepreneurs is 12 months. The statutory warranty period applies to consumers.
If a right to warranty exists as a result of a defect, DIAN Medical GmbH undertakes to initially exchange the goods due to the nature of the item. If replacement or improvement is out of the question (not possible, too much effort, unreasonable, delay), the buyer is entitled to a price reduction or, if the defect is not minor, cancellation of the contract (redhibitory action). Compensation for consequential (defect) damage, as well as other property damage, financial loss and damage to third parties against the customer, insofar as it is not a consumer transaction, is excluded.
Defects that occur are to be notified as far as possible upon delivery or after they become visible, whereby failure to notify us upon delivery or after they become visible by a consumer has no influence on the consumer's warranty claims. If the purchase is a commercial transaction (B2B) for the customer, he must inspect the goods no later than 2 weeks after receipt and notify us immediately if a defect is found.
If a claim is made under the warranty, the item to be returned must be sent back with sufficient postage. Unfree returns cannot be accepted. In the event of a justified defect, DIAN Medical GmbH will reimburse the shipping costs.
For clear identification, allocation and processing of the subsequent delivery, a copy of the invoice or a letter stating the customer and invoice number must be enclosed.
No claims for damages shall arise against DIAN Medical GmbH from a defect if the cause of the damage is not based on intent or gross negligence.
12 Data protection
Our data protection declaration, which is available on this website, is part of the contract.
13 Applicable law, place of jurisdiction
The contracting parties agree on the application of Austrian law. If the consumer has his domicile or habitual residence in Austria or if he is employed in Austria, only the jurisdiction of the court in whose district the domicile, habitual residence or place of employment is located can be established for an action against him; this does not apply to legal disputes that have already arisen. The UN Sales Convention and all provisions relating to the UN Sales Convention are expressly excluded. For contracts with companies, our registered office (Vienna, Austria) is agreed as the place of jurisdiction.
14 Exclusion ofliability
Claims of the customer for damages are excluded. Excluded from this are claims for damages by the customer arising from injury to life, limb or health or from the breach of essential contractual obligations as well as liability for other damages which are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by us. It shall be ensured that the ordered goods are stored and transported at room temperature throughout the entire transport route. After delivery of the product, the consumer is responsible for the proper storage of the product.
Data communication via the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be error-free and/or available at all times according to the current state of the art. We are therefore liable neither for the constant and uninterrupted availability of the online trading system nor for technical and electronic errors over which we have no control, in particular not for the delayed processing of orders.
