10. Conclusion of the contract between users at Elektronik Billiger


By placing an advertisement on Elektronik Billiger, the provider does not yet make a binding offer to conclude a contract. This is rather an invitation to the customer to submit an offer. The customer can make his offer by going through the individual steps of the ordering process and concluding it by pressing the final order button. The provider is entitled but not obliged to accept the customer's offer.


11. Remuneration

The Provider shall receive an invoice from the Operator for the amount of the remuneration in each case.


12. Indemnification


The User shall indemnify the Operator against all claims asserted by other Users or other third parties against the Operator for infringement of their rights due to content posted by the User or due to the User's other use of Elektronik Billiger. In this regard, the User shall bear the costs of the necessary legal defense, including all court and attorney's fees in an appropriate amount.

In the event of a claim by a third party, the user is obligated to provide the operator immediately, truthfully and completely with all information necessary for the examination of the claims and a defense.


13. Operator liability


The operator is liable to the user from all contractual, quasi-contractual and legal, including tortious claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses as follows:

13.1 The operator is liable for any legal reason without limitation

  • in the event of intent or gross negligence,
  • in the event of intentional or negligent injury to life, limb or health,
  • on the basis of a warranty promise, unless otherwise regulated in this respect,
  • on the basis of mandatory liability, such as under the Product Liability Act.


13.2 If the operator negligently violates an essential contractual obligation, the liability is limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the contract, unless liability is unlimited according to the above paragraph. Material contractual obligations are obligations which the contract imposes on the operator according to its content in order to achieve the purpose of the contract, the fulfillment of which makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on the compliance with which the user may regularly rely.
13.3 Otherwise, any liability of the operator is excluded.

13.4 The foregoing liability provisions shall also apply with regard to the liability of the Operator for its vicarious agents and legal representatives.


14. Term, Cancellation


14.1 With guests in the sense of section 1.2.2 as well as with customers in the sense of section 1.2.6, the contract of use is concluded for an indefinite period of time and may be terminated by either party at any time without notice.

14.2 With providers as defined in section 1.2.5, the usage agreement is concluded for an indefinite period of time and can be terminated by the provider at any time without observing a notice period and by the operator observing a notice period of 14 days.

14.3 The right to extraordinary termination for good cause shall remain unaffected. Good cause shall be deemed to exist if the terminating party, taking into account all circumstances of the individual case and weighing the interests of both parties, cannot reasonably be expected to continue the contractual relationship until the agreed termination or until the expiry of a notice period.


An important reason is in particular:


  • a significant breach of essential provisions of these Terms of Use which is not remedied even after a deadline has been set or which is committed repeatedly and which makes it impossible or unreasonable to continue the contractual relationship;
  • the re-registration during a still running blocking according to section 7.1;
  • the provision of false profile data to conceal the true identity;
  • if, in the case of a chargeable use of Elektronik Billiger, the user is in default of payment of the fee or a not insignificant part of the fee for two consecutive dates;
  • if, in the event of a chargeable use of Elektronik Billiger, the user ceases to make payments in general;
  • if, in the event of a chargeable use of Elektronik Billiger, execution proceedings have been instituted against all or a substantial part of the other party's assets or there are grounds for opening insolvency proceedings against the other party, such proceedings have been dismissed for lack of assets, insolvency proceedings have been filed against the other party or an affidavit has been filed by the other party regarding its assets.


14.4 In case of a justified extraordinary termination of the user contract by the operator, the user is not entitled to create a user account for Elektronik Billiger again.
14.5 Terminations can be made in writing, in text form (e.g. e-mail) or on the part of the user also by deleting his user account with Elektronik Billiger.
14.6 With the termination of the contract, the user loses access to his user account. Furthermore, with the termination of the contract, the obligation of the operator to store the user's data expires.


15. Modification of the terms of use


15.1 The operator reserves the right to change these terms of use at any time without giving reasons, unless this is not reasonable for the user. The operator will notify the user of changes to the terms of use in text form in a timely manner. If the User does not object to the validity of the new Terms of Use within a period of four weeks after notification, the amended Terms of Use shall be deemed accepted by the User. The Operator shall inform the User in the notification of his right to object and of the significance of the objection period. If the User objects to the changes within the aforementioned period, the contractual relationship shall continue to exist under the original conditions.

15.2 Furthermore, the operator reserves the right to change these terms of use,

  • to the extent that it is obliged to do so due to a change in the legal situation;
  • insofar as he thereby complies with a court judgment or an authority decision directed against him;
  • to the extent that it introduces additional, entirely new services, services or service elements that require a service description in the Terms of Use, unless the existing usage relationship is adversely changed as a result;
  • if the change is merely beneficial to the user; or
  • if the change is purely technical or procedural, unless it has a significant impact on the user.

15.3 The User's right of termination pursuant to Section 14 shall remain unaffected.


16. Contract assumption by third parties


The operator is entitled to transfer his rights and obligations from the user contract in whole or in part to a third party. The operator will notify the user of this in text form in a timely manner, but no later than four weeks prior to the transfer of the contract. If the User does not wish to continue the contractual relationship with the third party, he may terminate the contract within three weeks after receipt of the Operator's notification with a notice period of seven days.

17. Applicable law


The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to all legal relationships between the parties. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply to the extent that the protection granted is not withdrawn by mandatory provisions of the law of the state in which the consumer has his habitual residence.

18. Legal venue


If the user acts as a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law with its registered office in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract shall be the registered office of the operator. If the User's registered office is outside the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Operator's registered office shall be the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract if the contract or claims arising from the contract can be attributed to the User's professional or commercial activity. However, in the aforementioned cases, the Operator is in any case entitled to appeal to the court at the User's place of business.

19. Alternative dispute resolution


19.1 The EU Commission provides a platform for online dispute resolution on the Internet at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr

This platform serves as a point of contact for the out-of-court settlement of disputes arising from online purchase or Service contracts involving a consumer.

19.2 The operator is neither obliged nor willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
