2. Conclusion of contract

(1) The presentation of our goods in the DAWN online store is intended merely as a non-binding product advertisement and not a binding offer. The images in the DAWN online store, which showcases our products, may depict other items (e.g. decorative materials, other items of clothing, accessories) in addition to our products. These items are not part of the respective product and are, therefore, not an object of an order.

(2) The customer only makes a binding offer when they order the goods in the DAWN online store. By placing the order, the customer warrants that the information they provided is accurate and complete.

(3) The contract will only come into effect when we confirm this order, and the customer receives an order confirmation by email. The contract is concluded with us, i.e.
