II. Conclusion of Contract

We make specific reference to the KPM GTCs in the order confirmation; the KPM GTCs are printed on the reverse of the order confirmation, the delivery note and the invoice and are also available online at www.kpm-berlin.com. The order confirmation contains details of the goods purchased, the quantity purchased, unit prices, the total price and, if applicable, shipping costs.

You place a binding order only when you have entered all the information required for implementing the contract, confirmed your acknowledgement of the KPM GTCs and clicked the „Order and Pay“ button. You may make changes to your order and to the information provided in relation to your order at any time before you click this button. We accept your offer by sending you an order confirmation by email. This constitutes the conclusion of the purchase contract via the online shop.
