In case digital content is purchased (for example games to be downloaded), Playa Games acceptance of the customer’s offer is declared by providing the download link on the online store website to the customer for the first time or by sending the confirmation of the order and contract to the customer, whichever is earlier.

5.1. The delivery of the ordered goods shall take place ex store to the shipping address designated by the customer.

5.2. Unless the product description on the website states otherwise, digital content (for example games to download) shall be provided by us by providing a download link to the customer on our website directly after the successful completion of the payment procedure. In addition, the download link shall at the same time be sent by email to the email address designated by the customer. In case of a gift purchase the download link will only be sent to the email address   designated by the customer as the gift recipient’s email address. For technical reasons, the download link will be valid only for 30 minutes after the email is sent. If the customer has set up a customer account the digital content he has purchased will also be provided to him for download there, unless they have been purchased as a gift for a third party. In case the customer (or the recipient of the gift) does not manage to start the download in time, and does not yet have a customer account with Playa Games, he may set up a customer account by using the same email address which has been used in the purchase and access his downloads through this customer account.

8.3. The above provisions shall apply to a limitation of the obligation to indemnify the customer for futile expenses (section 284 German Civil Code).

9. Governing Law and Place of Venue

9.1. This agreement is subject to the laws of Germany, excluding the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), even if the customer has his place of residence or his place of business abroad. In relation to consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as it does not deprive the consumer of such legal protections which are conferred upon him by mandatory statutory provisions, i.e. such provisions which cannot be waived by agreement, of the country where he has his habitual abode. A customer is deemed a consumer if the relevant legal transaction (for example to ordering of the goods in the shopping cart) is made for a purpose which cannot be considered to be predominantly within his trade, business or professional activities.

9.2. If the customer is a merchant (“Kaufmann” in the terms of the German Commercial Code HGB), a public law legal entity or a special public law fund, the exclusive venue for all current and future claims directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with the contractual relationship between the parties shall be at Playa Games principal place of business. The same venue shall apply if the customer does not have a domestic general venue in Germany, or if he has moved his residence or usual place of abode to another country after conclusion of the contract, or his residence or general abode is unknown at the time the law suit is filed.

This venue shall not apply, however, if the customer is a consumer and has his residence or habitual abode in an EU member country. In such case the claim must be brought before the competent court in such country.
