For the business relationship between E. Breuninger GmbH & Co. (Breuninger) and the party ordering goods from the selected online sales platform at the internet address www.breuninger.com (Breuninger online shop), the following Terms and Conditions (Terms) apply exclusively.
Goods are exclusively sold to private customers as consumers; sale to merchants for commercial purposes is excluded. The commercial resale of goods is not permitted.
Goods as defined within these Terms are all products and services that can be acquired as part of an online order in the Breuninger online shop.
The following Terms and Conditions do not apply for orders that are placed with Breuninger outside of the Breuninger online shop.
The presentation of goods in the Breuninger online shop does not constitute a binding offer to conclude a purchase agreement.
Orders may only be placed by persons of legal age with a delivery address in the country of the selected country shop. Goods are only issued in typical household quantities.
The minimum order value is 20 euro. Any returns, discounts, or other vouchers are not taken into account.
When you place an order – by clicking on the button “Buy now” – you are submitting a binding offer to purchase. Breuninger will send you an automatic confirmation of receipt by email that documents your order again. This automatic confirmation of receipt merely confirms that your order was received by Breuninger and does not comprise an acceptance of your offer.
Breuninger reserves the right, depending on the selected payment method, to check the information you provide with respect to the payment method, its validity and your creditworthiness in this regard, and to decline the acceptance of offers depending on the result of this check.
The contract with Breuninger is only established once Breuninger confirms the shipment of goods to you in a separate email. The deadline for acceptance is 7 calendar days at most.
If delivery of the goods you ordered is not possible, for example because the goods in question are not in stock, Breuninger will not issue a declaration of acceptance. In this case, no contract will be established with respect to these goods. We will inform you of these circumstances promptly and reimburse any already received payments without undue delay.
The language of the contract and contractual correspondence will be English.
We will store your order details within the framework of the statutory provisions. If you are registered in the Breuninger online shop, you can access your order details under “My account”.
If you lose your documents or your orders, please contact us by email or phone at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 00800-71 121 100. We would be happy to send you a copy of the stored data for your order.
If you are a consumer, you are entitled to the following right of cancellation for purchases in the Breuninger online shop:

- End of cancellation policy -
The right of cancellation does not exist for remote sales contracts
(a) for the delivery of goods that are produced according to customer specifications or uniquely tailored to the personal needs of the ordering party or which are not suitable for returns due to their composition,
(b) for the delivery of audio or video recordings or software if you have unsealed the delivered data storage media.
Apart from the statutory right of cancellation, Breuninger grants you a voluntary right of return according to the following provisions. This right of return gives you the option of withdrawing from the contract within a period of 30 days. This period starts the day after receiving the goods.
To avail of the voluntary right of return, you must send the goods back to Breuninger within the deadline mentioned above.
Return shipment must be directed to the Breuninger address that is named in the return papers enclosed with the delivery.
On-time shipment is sufficient for observation of the deadline.
We reserve the right to refuse to take back goods if you fail to comply with the above requirements.
We only grant you the voluntary right of return subject to the condition that the goods are in faultless conditions upon return.
However, we reserve the right to refuse to take back goods at our discretion if
You send back the goods to us without all components (e.g. product packaging, such as protective pouches for shoes, straps, bags, high-quality shoe boxes etc.)
The goods are not in their original condition (for example if safety labels or other labels were removed from the goods)
The goods have deteriorated.
If we do accept the returned goods, however, we are entitled to demand an appropriate amount of compensation from you and offset this using any purchase price payments that were already made.
The voluntary right of return is excluded for sealed goods that are not suitable for return for reasons of health protection or hygiene if their seal has been removed after delivery.
Furthermore, the voluntary right of return does not apply for goods that are not pre-fabricated and which depend on an individual selection or specification from the customer for their production, or which are clearly tailored to the customer’s personal needs.
Finally, the voluntary right of return does not apply for goods that are delivered in sealed condition if the seal was removed or damaged after delivery.
We will review your purchasing behavior at regular intervals. If you exceed a return threshold of 90% with respect to the online purchases you have made in the past 6 months, we reserve the right to temporarily or permanently block your customer account.
The goods remain the property of Breuninger until full payment has been made.
Delivery is restricted geographically to the country of the respective country shop that was selected. No deliveries will be made to delivery addresses in a delivery region that is excluded according to paragraph 2.
The following regions are excluded from delivery:
Netherlands: Deliveries to Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Sint- Maarten, Saba, Sint Eustatios
