General Terms and Conditions (GTC)
This website is owned and published by Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. The customer is obliged to carefully read the terms and conditions of the General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter "GTC") provided to him/her on the website. When placing an order, the customer accepts these GTC in their entirety.
These GTC govern the relationship between the customer and Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. for the purchase of products of Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. made available for this purpose on the website. A copy of the GTC is sent to the customer by e-mail with each order by the Customer Service of Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd.
These GTC apply to all services provided by www.stefanbrandt.com. By placing an order, the customer expressly agrees to these GTC, applicable to all services of the online store (www.stefanbrandt.com) of Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd.
For the purpose of these GTC, the customer is understood solely as a consumer, i.e. a physical person who buys the goods for purposes not related to any entrepreneurial or professional activities.
Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. is responsible for all content and web hosting and may modify the GTC applicable to www.stefanbrandt.com at any time. Such amendments shall become effective immediately upon their publication.
Contracts concluded with Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. through access to the website are governed by the legislation of Germany.
Conclusion of contract
The contract is concluded at the moment the buyer receives an order confirmation from Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. The order confirmation is sent by e-mail. The product details and prices within the order process are non-binding. Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. produces T-shirts, polo shirts, underwear, shoes, bags and belts. These are exclusively one-of-a-kind products, whose characteristic feature is that they always differ from each other in color tone, stitching, applications and other details. The unique look of each item is due to the fact that the T-shirts, plo-shirts and underwear are subjected to special water-steam-heat treatments, and the shoes, bags and belts are made from used sail uniques, individual fish skins and other materials that exist only once, in individual and (predominantly) manual processes. The customer therefore accepts that no guarantee can be given by Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. for a complete match between the images on the website and the delivered unique products. For all other products, which are not explicitly offered as unique items on the website, slight deviations in color between the illustration and the delivered original product may also occur, depending on the computer and screen settings of the buyer. Therefore, even in the latter case, Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. does not guarantee a complete match between the illustrations on the website and the delivered products.
The delivered goods remain the property of Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. until all claims against the purchaser have been settled in full. Ownership of the product purchased online is transferred to the customer upon delivery, provided that full payment of the product price has been made to Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. Upon delivery of the product purchased online, the risks of deterioration and damage to the product are transferred to the customer.
The product prices stated on www.stefanbrandt.com at the time of the customer's order are binding. Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. constantly checks that all prices indicated on the website are correct, but cannot therefore guarantee that no errors will occur. If an error is detected in the price of a product, Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. offers the customer the possibility to reconfirm the purchase of the product at the correct price or to cancel the purchase.
All prices are in Euro, including the legally valid VAT and excluding postage and packaging costs. You will be informed of the shipping costs on the product pages, in the shopping cart system and on the order page. Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. reserves the right to change its prices at any time.
The basic characteristics and prices of the products are listed in the offer of each product on the website.
If the Customer needs to correct any data entry errors, he/she must follow the appropriate modification procedure contained on the Website before submitting his/her purchase order. In particular, before sending the order, the customer has the possibility to check all the data again, to change them (also using the "back" function of the Internet browser) or to cancel the purchase. The customer is authorized to change the number of products he wants to buy by adding or removing one or more products from the "shopping cart".
The products available for online purchase are shoes, bags, belts, t-shirts, polo shirts, underwear and gift items. All products are subject to instant availability.

If the delivery period indicated there cannot be met or if the order of the ordered product cannot be executed, Elbkind Hamburg International Ltd. will inform the customer about the unavailability of the products by e-mail within 10 days after receipt of the purchase order.
We would like to point out that all information regarding availability, shipping or delivery of an item is only prospective and approximate.
