According to § 13 BGB (German Civil Code), a consumer is any natural person who enters into a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his commercial nor to his independent professional activity. According to § 14 BGB, an entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his commercial or independent professional activity. 

1.3 The general terms and conditions of buycycle apply exclusively. Deviating, conflicting or supplementary general terms and conditions or GTC of the User shall only become part of the contract if and to the extent that buycycle has expressly agreed to their validity. 

2. subject matter of the contract 

2.1. buycycle provides users with worldwide access to the buycycle marketplace for the duration of the contract in order to have used racing bicycles (hereinafter referred to as "racing bicycles") evaluated as a seller and then to offer them for payment or as a buyer to search for and purchase racing bicycles in a database. The shipping of the racing bikes is carried out by a shipping service provider named by buycycle. 

2.2. buycycle itself does not currently offer racing bikes for sale on the marketplace, but reserves the right in individual cases to purchase bikes itself in order to sell and/or lease them at a later date. In this case, however, buycycle submits to these GTC as a buyer and purchases the racing bikes at the same conditions as the "normal" buyers with the proviso that no shipping fees are incurred. 

2.3 The subject of this contract is accordingly the provision of a worldwide accessible market place for offering or searching for racing bicycles and their subsequent dispatch. 

2.4 Any initiation of contracts via the marketplace and/or contractual relations regarding the purchase of used bicycles are exclusively between 


the users themselves. buycycle is not liable for the proper execution of any purchase contracts between users. 

2.5. buycycle offers buyers and sellers a customer service and is the contact for all disputes, refund requests and questions regarding purchases made on buycycle. Details can be found in section 14.4. 

3. services and use of the profile 

3.1 The services of buycycle differ according to whether the User uses the marketplace as a seller or as a buyer. In any case, the use of the marketplace requires the successful registration and admission of the User. 

3.2 As a seller, the User can create and publish offers for the sale of racing bikes (hereinafter referred to as "sales ads") on the buycycle marketplace. The creation of a sale ad requires successful registration as well as information on the brand, model, year of manufacture and condition of use of the road bike. The seller can estimate the value of the road bike by buycycle and get a non-binding price offer as well as view already published sales ads of comparable road bikes, if applicable. Furthermore, the seller can upload truthful and unretouched pictures as well as provide detailed information about the condition of the road bike. The publication of an ad for sale only takes place after prior review and approval by buycycle. Finally, the seller can edit and delete the sale ads at any time, view the sale ads of other users and contact the respective users by comments or notifications. In case of an offer by the buyer to sell a racing bike, the seller receives a notification from buycycle, to which he can react within 24 hours and indicate whether an intermediate sale has taken place or whether he would like to accept the buyer's offer. 

3.3 If the User is a buyer, he can view published sales ads on the buycycle marketplace after successful registration and admission. For this purpose, the buyer has the possibility to view all sales ads published on the buycycle marketplace or to perform a "structured search" according to certain criteria of a road bike. The buyer can find all information about the racing bike, its price plus possible additional costs (shipping and transport costs, service fee and terms of payment) as well as about the rights against the seller. In addition, the customer can make individual comments on sales advertisements of sellers who are not private sellers and ask questions 

about the racing bikes or view questions and answers already asked by other users. Furthermore, the customer can view profiles of sellers who are not private sellers. 

3.4 For entrepreneurs, the following applies in addition: The creation and publication of sales advertisements and compliance with legal conformity are the sole responsibility of the seller. The publication of sales advertisements is only possible in compliance with the legal information obligations for sellers and the use of the seller's own, possibly existing, contracts or general terms and conditions, cancellation policy, privacy policy and imprint.

After entering his payment details and selecting the desired payment method, the buyer also confirms a payment instruction to Stripe by clicking the button completing the payment process. buycycle requests Stripe to initiate the payment transaction after confirmation by the seller and the seller accepts the buyer's offer in the event of clicking the button completing the order process.

3.7. buycycle is entitled to block access to individual content or to the marketplace at any time, e.g. if there is suspicion that users violate applicable law, these GTC or the rights of third parties. The user can avert these measures if he eliminates the suspicion by presenting suitable evidence at his own expense. The user has no claim to the maintenance of individual functionalities in the marketplace. 

3.8 The marketplace shall be available to the User for an unlimited period of time at an annual average of at least 98.5%.

For this purpose, the seller sets up its own escrow account with Stripe. The payment of the purchase price less the costs as per 6.2 will be made automatically by Stripe to the Seller after the shipping service provider has collected the Road Bike from the Seller.

A size that does not fit is not a reason for rescission. 

14.2.object of the buyer protection is insofar an examination by buycycle as to whether there is actually a defect in the subject matter of the contract For this purpose, the buyer can first send the object of the contract to buycycle at his own expense, which will be checked there for the alleged defect. 

14.3. If a defect turns out, buycycle will contact the seller and clarify whether a rescission is accepted or a - possible - repair should be carried out by buycycle at the seller's expense.

Buycycle will collect the amount owed by the seller via the payment service provider Stripe or offset it against any future payouts as defined in section 8. of these GTC. buycycle will refund the full or partial purchase price to the buyer on behalf of the seller. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, buycycle will refund the amount owed by the seller to the buyer using the same means of payment used by the buyer to pay the agreed purchase price. Further information on customer protection can be found in the sales advertisements of the respective racing bikes. 

14.4 As an alternative to rescission, the Seller may also choose to have the goods repaired at its own expense by buycycle, provided that the originally agreed quality of the subject matter of the contract can be achieved in this way. 

14.5. If it should turn out after examination by buycycle that no lack is present, buycycle communicates this to the buyer and sends him the subject matter of the contract against payment of a dispatch lump sum back. 

14.6 After 48 hours after the agreed or actual delivery date, the buyer protection no longer applies.

a functional check of the contractual item and repairs up to an amount of EUR 15.00. If defects are discovered during the functional check that require more extensive repairs, the Buyer shall be informed of these. If the functional check reveals defects that require more extensive repairs, and if these were not described in the offer, buycycle will inform the seller and offer to carry out the necessary repairs at the seller's expense. If the seller refuses the repairs, buycycle sends the object of the contract back to the seller at the expense of the seller. Any payments already made by the buyer will be refunded to him.
