General Terms & Conditions of Business


As our website is currently purely an information platform, we do not intend to provide an extensive set of general business terms and conditions here pursuant to Sections 305ff of the German Civil Code (BGB).

We currently sell coins via the Internet platforms specified under the “COIN TRADING” menu. There you will find the general terms & conditions of business of the respective provider in their latest version at all times; of course, we consider ourselves to be entirely bound by those terms & conditions.

The following applies inter alia to business relationships of all sorts with Münzhandel Kapaan & Mades GbR:

Extract from the Civil Code (BGB)

Section 305 Incorporation of standard business terms into the contract

(1) Standard business terms are all contract terms pre-formulated for more than two contracts which one party to the contract (the user) presents to the other party upon entering into of the contract. It is irrelevant whether the provisions take the form of a physically separate part of a contract or are made part of the contractual document itself, what their volume is, what typeface or font is used for them and what form the contract takes. Contract terms do not become standard business terms to the extent that they have been negotiated in detail between the parties.

(2) Standard business terms only become a part of a contract if the user, when entering into the contract,

1. refers the other party to the contract to them explicitly or, where explicit reference, due to the way in which the contract is entered into, is possible only with disproportionate difficulty, by posting a clearly visible notice at the place where the contract is entered into, and 2. gives the other party to the contract, in an acceptable manner, which also takes into reasonable account any physical handicap of the other party to the contract that is discernible to the user, the opportunity to take notice of their contents, and if the other party to the contract agrees to their applying.

(3) The parties to the contract may, while complying with the requirements set out in subsection (2) above, agree in advance that specific standard business terms are to govern a specific type of legal transaction.

Copyright and trademark law

All published contributions and illustrations are protected by copyright. Any use that is not permitted under the German Copyright Act requires our prior written consent. This applies in particular to duplication, editing, presentation, leasing, lending, sending, translation, saving, processing and reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Printouts, photocopies and downloads of websites may be made only for personal, private and non-commercial use. All rights are reserved.

In all publications, we make every attempt to observe the copyright of the graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts used, to use graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by ourselves or to draw on graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts that are not under license. All trademarks and brand marks that may be protected by third parties and that are used on the website are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark legislation and the proprietary rights of their respective registered owners. The conclusion may not be drawn merely from the fact that they are mentioned that trademarks are not protected by third-party rights. If an unmarked graphic, audio document or text appears on this site that is, however, protected by external copyright, this is because we were not able to establish the existence of that copyright. In the case of such an unintentional breach of copyright, we shall remove the item concerned from our published website on notification or mark it with the corresponding copyright.

Links and references

In the case of direct or indirect references to external websites (links) that are outside our sphere of responsibility, a liability obligation shall arise only if we have knowledge of the content and it would be technically possible and reasonable to prevent use of such a link to access content that is illegal. We expressly confirm that no illegal content was apparent on the linked sites at the time the links were created. We have no influence whatsoever over the current or future design, content or authorship of the linked sites. We therefore wish to distance ourselves expressly from all content on all linked sites that has been changed since the links were created and we do not lay claim to ownership of their content. This assertion applies to all links and references that appear within our own website and to external entries in visitor books, discussion forums and mailing lists. The provider of the website to which reference is made is exclusively liable for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and, in particular, for damage caused by the use or failure to use information provided in this way; the party who merely makes reference to the publication concerned in the form of links is not liable.

We cannot provide any guarantee as to the currency, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability for damage of a material or intellectual form caused by the use or failure to use the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, insofar as there is no evidence of malicious intent or gross negligence. This applies, in particular, to calculations, prices, sizes, quantities and dimensions that can be found on these pages or linked sites. We again refer expressly here to the liability information pursuant to Section 5 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), a copy of which can be found under the “LINKS” menu.

Applicable law and concluding provision

German law applies exclusively. The place of performance and jurisdiction for both parties is our registered office in Bochum, insofar as this is legally permissible. German law applies. If the customer is a merchant, a legal person under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is the registered office of Münzhandel Kapaan & Mades GbR, Bochum. The same applies if the customer has no general place of jurisdiction in the Federal Republic of Germany or their domicile or regular place of residence is unknown at the time the action is brought. Should individual provisions of this contract with the customer be or become invalid in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected as a result. The partly or wholly invalid provision shall be replaced by a provision the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to the invalid provision.

The author himself and the information providers always make every effort to provide high-quality information. Nevertheless, the author cannot provide any guarantee as to the currency, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Claims for liability against the author that relate to damage of a material or intellectual form caused by the use or failure to use the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are fundamentally excluded, insofar as there is no evidence of malicious intent or gross negligence on the part of the author. All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to modify, add to, delete, or temporarily or definitively suspend publication of parts of the site or the website as a whole without specific notice.

Translations have been provided in good faith, but only the German Terms & Conditions and information are definitive.
