§ 4 Sales contract, order limits

4.1 When entering the delivery address in the App or on the Website, you can see whether the desired delivery address is located in one of our delivery areas, and if our stores are currently open for ordering. If this is not (yet) the case, an order is not possible.

4.2 The presentation of the articles on the App/Website does not constitute a legally binding offer, but merely an invitation to the Customer to compile a selection of goods and to submit an offer for purchase. Even by placing goods in the shopping cart, no purchase contract is created.

4.3 The current minimum order value is displayed in the App and on the Website. It is not possible to place an order with Flink before reaching the minimum order value.

4.4 By sending the order via the App/Website by clicking the button with the lettering "Buy now" (or a corresponding and clearly designed button), the Customer submits a binding offer for the goods placed in the shopping cart at the price shown. In the App / on the Website you'll find the current minimum order value.

4.5 After placing the order, a binding contract is concluded when the order is accepted by an order confirmation and/or the Customer is automatically prompted to select the desired method of payment. If the delivery of the ordered goods is not possible, for example, because the corresponding goods are not in stock, no order confirmation will be sent to the Customer and the Customer will not receive a request to select the payment method. In this case, a contract is not concluded, of which the Customer will be informed immediately.

4.6 We do not sell and/or deliver goods that are subject to youth protection regulations (e.g., tobacco products, alcoholic beverages) to minors. For this reason, you need to confirm your age before ordering such restricted goods. Offers to conclude a purchase contract by minors on such items will be automatically rejected. Please also refer to § 5.4 and § 17 below.

4.7 If, in exceptional circumstances, delivery of goods is not possible, for example due to the lack of availability of individual items or due to unforeseen and inevitable capacity shortages, we will inform you immediately after we have become aware of such a circumstance. In such a case, we will refund the purchase price for the items affected via the original payment method, without prejudice to other rights you may have.

4.8 The quantities of goods we deliver are limited. When adding a larger quantity to the shopping cart than permitted, you will receive a notice about the article-specific quantity limit.

Estimated delivery times are indicated on the App or Website when the order is placed and begin to run from the date of your receipt of the order confirmation email.

5.2 By submitting the order, you confirm that your personal information and the specified delivery address are correct.

Furthermore, you must be available for any queries regarding the delivery at the telephone number provided in the order process. In case you and/or a person authorized by you cannot be found at the delivery address and we cannot reach you under your telephone number, we may drop off the order at the delivery address (e.g. in front of apartment door) at your own risk, if the order does not contain products prohibited for sale to minors or products which can be diverted to illicit use such as glass bottles or certain household cleaners. In the event the order contains such products, the order will be canceled by us within the scope of the legal requirements and you will be charged the full order price.

5.4 Goods which are subject to youth protection regulations (e.g. tobacco products, alcoholic beverages) will, deviating from the delivery process described above, only be handed over personally to you and only if you are of full age, i.e. persons over the age of 18. Such goods will not be handed over to third parties or customers under 18 years of age. For this purpose, you are obligated to present your identity card or a comparable official document (passport, driver's license, etc.) to the delivery person at the time of delivery. In addition, you must truthfully confirm that you have reached the age of 18 during the order process (cf. above § 4.6). If the goods cannot be delivered due to insufficient age verification and/or insufficient personal identification at the delivery address, we are entitled to charge you an additional delivery fee as compensation for the expenses incurred by us.

If requested and at your own risk, the delivery can also be made contactless by leaving the goods at the specified delivery address (for example, in front of the apartment door). We do not offer contactless delivery of goods which are subject to the youth protection regulations, or where you are notified of such an exclusion before completing your order.
