OUTFITTERY GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “OUTFITTERY”) operates a website at outfittery.com on which selected men’s outfits are offered. The customer is given the opportunity to register in the online system and enter into a database specific data and information regarding his/her person, preferences and taste in the area of fashion and lifestyle. The customer thus grants OUTFITTERY consent to put together and send to the customer at its own discretion, based on personal criteria, as individual as possible a selection of fashion articles of any kind. § 4 and 5 below provide more details on how the contract comes into being and the customer’s statutory cancellation right. The use of the website www.outfittery.com and the contracts concluded through that website are subject to the following General Terms and Conditions of Business.
1.1. The website www.outfittery.com , including all subdomains (hereinafter referred to as outfittery.com) and the system for the distribution of fashion articles are operated by OUTFITTERY GmbH, Leuschnerdamm 31, 10999 Berlin, represented by directors Anna-Katharina Alex and Julia Bösch and entered in the commercial register of the District Court for Berlin under register number HRB 140519B (hereinafter referred to as OUTFITTERY).
1.2. The following General Terms and Conditions of Business (GTC) apply for the use of the website outfittery.com and for the contracts concluded through outfittery.com. Deliveries and services of OUTFITTERY will be performed exclusively in accordance with these GTC. Any differing or contradictory general business conditions of the contract partner shall not apply even if we render our performance without any reservations.
1.3. These GTC of OUTFITTERY can be accessed, printed out or locally saved at any time at www.outfittery.com/terms.
1.4. Within the framework of contracts with OUTFITTERY these GTC confer rights and impose obligations exclusively on consumers. A consumer in the meaning of the following provisions (hereinafter referred to as a “customer”) is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose which cannot be attributed either to his/her commercial or independent professional activities
OUTFITTERY reserves the right to adjust or amend these GTC at any time within the legally permitted limits. For ongoing contractual relationships, particularly for already placed orders, as a rule the version of these GTC applicable when the respective legal transaction was concluded shall apply. However, OUTFITTERY GmbH shall have the right to unilaterally amend these GTC, insofar as they have been introduced into the contractual relationship with the customer, if this is necessary to eliminate subsequently arising disruptions of equivalence or to make an adjustment in line with changed legal or technical framework conditions and is not contrary to the current provisions of law relating to consumer protection. The customer shall be informed of any adjustment, specifying the content of the amended provisions. The amendment shall become a part of the contract unless the customer objects to its integration into the contractual relationship with respect to OUTFITTERY in writing or text form within six weeks after receiving the change notification.
3.1. OUTFITTERY provides the customer with the opportunity to register on outfittery.com and open an account. Registration is essential to use the OUTFITTERY Internet service.
3.2. The customer must treat his/her personal access data confidentially and refrain from making it available to any unauthorised third parties.
3.3. The customer registers by clicking on the “Register free of charge” or “Register” buttons.
3.4. Registration with OUTFITTERY is free of charge. There is no entitlement to registration. OUTFITTERY GmbH can also make registration subject to further requirements (e.g. verification of the registration data, a creditworthiness check). When registering the customer must provide correct and accurate information. He/she should report any changes in the data in order to avoid costs if he/she would like to place a new order. In particular, the customer must state his/her full name, address, country and e-mail address. OUTFITTERY shall have the right to effectively deliver declarations to be made with respect to the customer to his/her e-mail address, unless a stricter mandatory form is required by law or under an agreement.
4.1. The website as such, particularly the presentation of goods on outfittery.com, does not constitute a binding offer of OUTFITTERY.
4.2. On the basis of the personal data that the customer enters in the OUTFITTERY online system, OUTFITTERY shall select various goods and send them to the customer at the current product price. Price increases at short notice, within four months after the conclusion of the contract (Article 309 No. 1 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch – BGB)), are excluded. The selection of the goods is at the sole discretion of OUTFITTERY. The customer has no entitlement to be sent particular products. The customer will be sent, per order, goods with a maximum value of EUR 1,500.00 including the currently applicable VAT of the customer´s specified delivery country. The customer therefore explicitly grants OUTFITTERY a unilateral performance determination right in accordance with Articles 315 and 316 BGB. The personal data can be entered by the customer during a telephone appointment with a style consultant, or alternatively by telephone, by sending an order through a questionnaire uploaded onto the OUTFITTERY website without a telephone consultation or also by sending a text message or e‑mail to OUTFITTERY. The customer shall receive, according to his/her order request, a confirmation by OUTFITTERY of the dispatch of the goods either by e-mail or in writing.
4.3. The sending of the goods after the customer has declared his/her consent to it constitutes Outfittery’s offer to conclude a purchase contract with regard to the dispatched fashion articles at the specified price, a maximum of EUR 1,500.00, including the currently applicable statutory VAT of the customer´s specified delivery country. When the package of goods is accepted by the customer or by a third party authorised or tolerated by him/her the offer will be deemed to have been accepted. Irrespective of this, the customer is also entitled to the statutory cancellation right, as detailed in § 5.
5.1. This section provides the customer with the legally required information on the requirements for and consequences of the cancellation right (here). In the event of return shipment of goods where the cancellation right has been lawfully exercised, the customer must use the return shipment sticker enclosed by OUTFITTERY. If the return shipment sticker is not (no longer) available, you can request one at any time from OUTFITTERY’s customer service.
