(2) By clicking the button "Order now with payment" you submit a binding purchase offer.

(3) After receipt of the purchase offer you will receive an automatically generated email with the order number with which we confirm receipt of the order (confirmation of receipt).

The delivery of the ordered goods or the order confirmation usually take place within 10 working days.
