The protection of your personal data is important to us. We use these exclusively in order to be able to process your orders properly. We have described which data we process and for what purpose in our privacy policy.

For the business relationship between Weingut Steininger GmbH and the customer – also for all future transactions – the following General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively in their version valid at the time of ordering. Weingut Steininger GmbH recognizes deviating conditions of the customer. unless Weingut Steininger GmbH has expressly agreed to their validity in writing

§2 Order

Weingut Steininger GmbH undertakes to accept the order of the customer on the terms of the website. In the event of writing, printing and calculation errors on the website, Weingut Steininger GmbH is entitled to withdraw from the contract.

§3 Delivery

Unless otherwise agreed, the delivery takes place from stock to the delivery address specified by the customer. Information about the delivery period is non-binding, unless the delivery date has been agreed upon in an exceptional way.

§4 Due date and payment

The purchase price is due immediately with an order. Payment is made by invoice and enclosed payment slip, Paypal or prepayment to our account.

§5 Shipping costs

For shipping to Austria (less than 150€ wine order value) the customer has to pay 12€ pro rata shipping costs and to Germany (less than 250€ wine order value) 22€. The amounts are listed on the online order before closing of the accounts. And are visible on the homepage

§6 Offsetting, retention

The purchaser has no right of set-off unless his counterclaims have been legally established or recognized by Weingut Steininger GmbH. The customer is only entitled to exercise a right of retention to the extent that his counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.

§7 Retention of title

Until full payment has been made, the goods remain the property of Weingut Steininger GmbH.

§8 Warranty for defects and liability

If there is a defect of the purchased item for which Weingut Steininger GmbH is responsible, Weingut Steininger GmbH is entitled, at its own discretion, to rectify defects or to deliver a replacement.

If Weingut Steininger GmbH is not prepared or not in a position to remedy the defect or make a replacement delivery, or if this is delayed beyond a reasonable period for reasons for which Weingut Steininger GmbH is responsible, or if the remedy of the defect/replacement delivery fails in any other way, the customer shall be entitled, at his discretion, to withdraw from the contract or to demand a corresponding reduction in the purchase price.

Unless otherwise stated, further claims of the customer are excluded, regardless of legal reasons. Weingut Steininger GmbH is therefore not liable for damages that have not arisen on the delivery item itself; in particular, Weingut Steininger GmbH shall not be liable for lost profits or other financial losses of the customer.

Insofar as the liability of Weingut Steininger GmbH is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of employees, representatives and vicarious agents.

The above limitation of liability does not apply if the cause of damage is based on intent or gross negligence. Furthermore, it shall not apply if the customer asserts claims under the Product Liability Act, claims due to the absence of a guaranteed property or claims for damages due to non-performance.

The same applies to initial inability or impossibility to be represented.

If Weingut Steininger GmbH negligently violates an essential contractual obligation, the obligation to compensate for material or personal injury is limited to the typically occurring damage.

The warranty period is 6 months, calculated from the transfer of risk. This period is a limitation period and also applies to claims for compensation for consequential damages of defects, insofar as no claims arising from tortious acts are asserted.

§9 Data protection

The data required for the business transaction will be stored and, if necessary, passed on to affiliated companies as part of the order processing. All personal data will of course be treated confidentially and will not be passed on.

§10 Applicable law and place of jurisdiction

Austrian law applies. The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all claims in connection with the business relationship is 3500 KREMS/Donau. Weingut Steininger GmbH is also entitled to sue at the general place of jurisdiction of the customer.
