2) Conclusion of contract

2.1 The content published on the Licensor's website does not constitute a binding offer on the part of the Licensor, but serves for the submission of a binding offer by the Licensee.

2.2 The Licensee may submit the offer via the online order form integrated on the Licensor's website. After placing the selected contents in the virtual shopping cart and completing the electronic ordering process, the Licensee submits a legally binding contractual offer with regard to the contents contained in the shopping cart by clicking the button that concludes the ordering process. Furthermore, the Licensee may also submit the offer to the Licensor by e-mail.

2.3 The Licensor may accept the Licensee's offer within five days,

- by sending the Licensee a written order confirmation or an order confirmation in text form (e-mail), whereby the receipt of the order confirmation by the Licensee is decisive, or

- by providing the ordered content to the licensee, whereby the access to the licensee is decisive, or

- by requesting payment from the licensee after placing his order.

If several of the aforementioned alternatives exist, the contract is concluded at the point in time at which one of the aforementioned alternatives occurs first. If the licensor does not accept the licensee's offer within the aforementioned period, this shall be deemed as a rejection of the offer with the consequence that the licensee is no longer bound by his declaration of intent.
