By accumulating status-relevant purchase values Members will qualify for the status level, including the benefits, described in Section 2.8. A list of current Partners is available here. Information collected in connection therewith will be used for operating the OUTLETCITY CLUB and for commercial purposes.
2.3 Registration for the OUTLETCITY CLUB
(a) Membership in the OUTLETCITY CLUB is available to any person who has reached the age of majority, has full legal capacity, and is a consumer (as defined in § 13 of the German Civil Code (BGB)) who is purchasing products for his/her own use and for his/her own account, irrespective of the place of residence.
(b) Membership in the OUTLETCITY CLUB is free of charge.
(c) Registration for the OUTLETCITY CLUB involves several steps. For customers registering for the first time (hereinafter " New Customers") registration for the OUTLETCITY CLUB requires that the New Customer fully and accurately enters the personal data requested in the form during the online registration process at www.outletcity.com and then clicks on the confirmation link that will be emailed to the New Customer by Outletcity. New Customers may also register in this manner by using the Outletcity App. If a New Customer registers using his/her Facebook login data, Outletcity will open a personal reward points account in accordance with subsection (d) immediately after the registration process has been completed.
(d) After the registration process for the OUTLETCITY CLUB has been completed, Outletcity will open a personal reward points account for the Member and notify the Member thereof by email. This email constitutes the conclusion of a legally binding contract between the Member and Outletcity.
(e) Each Member will receive an Outletcity customer card in digital and/or physical form from Outletcity (hereinafter the " OUTLETCITY CLUB Code"), which will identify the Member to Partners as a Member of the OUTLETCITY CLUB.

2.4 Withdrawal right
Each Member has a withdrawal right as described in Section 4.
2.5 Collection of reward points and status-relevant purchase values
(a) To collect reward points and status-relevant purchase values, Members must allow their OUTLETCITY CLUB Codes to be tracked when making payments in the Online Shop or at Partners. Members may do so by presenting their OUTLETCITY CLUB Codes to a Partner when purchasing products (in-store purchases only) or by using their OUTLETCITY CLUB account when logging in (online purchases). OUTLETCITY CLUB Codes are tracked either in Outletcity at OUTLETCITY CLUB terminals of participating Partners, via App per receipt scan, i.e., by photographing and submitting receipts for purchases made in the last 14 days, or by submission and tracking at the International Service Point in the Outletcity, but also only for receipts for purchases made in the last 14 days. Members do not have a legal claim to such retroactive crediting.
(b) The number of reward points and status-relevant purchase values to be credited will be transmitted by each Partner to Outletcity and credited to the reward points account of the Member at the latest 30 days after the purchase.
(c) The amount of collected reward points generally depends on generated gross revenue (hereinafter "Revenue"). For each euro/Swiss franc of generated Revenue a Member receives one reward point, with cent or centime amounts being commercially rounded up or down to a full euro/Swiss franc. Members also may receive reward points for participating in promotional offers without generating Revenue. In addition to reward points, each euro/Swiss franc of generated Revenue, with cent or centime amounts being commercially rounded up or down to a full euro/Swiss franc, is credited toward status-relevant purchase values (in euros or Swiss francs). Reward points and status-relevant purchase values have no specific monetary value.
(d) Outletcity or Partners may award additional reward points for promotional offers involving certain products or at special occasions. Multiple promotional offers cannot be combined – unless otherwise provided by the terms of the promotional offer.
(e) Outletcity or Partners may exclude products from the award of reward points or of status level points at their discretion. Members will be notified of each such exclusion.
(f) Reward points and status-relevant purchase values will be rescinded retroactively if the transactions based on which such points were awarded are reversed (e.g., rescission, withdrawal), if an order was placed by mistake, or if points were awarded as a result of any misuse by the Member or third parties. If a Member has already redeemed canceled reward points, reward points for future purchases of products or services will not be credited until the number of redeemed reward points has been reached.
(g) Prior to registration for the OUTLETCITY CLUB it is possible to collect reward points at selected Partners of Outletcity whose stores feature appropriate scanning devices for the OUTLETCITY CLUB Code, by using anonymous customer cards or an app which the Customer has not yet used to register or log in as a member. Such reward points will be immediately added to the reward points account, but may not be redeemed until the registration process has been successfully completed.
2.6 Redemption of reward points
(a) Members may redeem their reward points in exchange for certain products or services in the rewards shop of Outletcity (hereinafter the " Rewards Shop") and, if offered in connection with promotional offers, at Partners.

After another click ("Review Order") the Member will see a detailed overview of the order. By clicking on the button "Order Now" the Member makes a legally binding offer to enter into a contract for the redemption of his/her reward points in exchange for the selected reward. Immediately after the order is placed, the Member will receive confirmation that the order has been received. A contract will be concluded if and when a separate declaration of acceptance is received, shipment is confirmed by email, or the products are delivered, whichever occurs first. In each case acceptance must be declared within 14 days from the date of the Member's contract offer. Otherwise the Member will no longer be bound by his/her contract offer.

Features of the Portal may change and services may be limited if this is necessary in light of capacity limits, the security or integrity of servers, or the performance of technical measures and if such changes serve the proper or improved provision of services (e.g., maintenance work). In particular for technical reasons the Portal may be unavailable temporarily or may be available only to a limited extent (unforeseen system crashes).

(b) The Customer may make changes or add additional products to the shopping cart. If the Customer wishes to place an order, he/she may choose "Proceed to Checkout" or "Directly to PayPal" in the shopping cart. The "Proceed to Checkout" option offers the Customer different payment methods as described in subsection (c) below. The "Directly to PayPal" method allows the Customer to pay for an order using PayPal.
(c) If a Customer has clicked on the button "Proceed to Checkout," the Customer will next enter his/her billing and shipping address(es) and the payment method will be defined. After clicking on the button "Save and Continue" the Customer may review the order one more time.
By clicking on the button "Buy" the Customer makes a legally binding offer to purchase the products in the shopping cart.
In the event of payment by SOFORT transfer, the offer will be accepted by transferring the Customer to the website of SOFORT GmbH as described in more detail in Section 3.7 (b) below.
In the event of payment by PayPal, the Customer will, after he/she has selected the payment method PayPal, be transferred to the website of PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., Luxembourg. There, the Customer will initiate payment for the products following the steps required for using PayPal. Thereafter the Customer will be transferred back to the Portal and will have a chance to review his/her order one more time. Only when the button "Buy Now" is clicked in the Portal the Customer will place his/her order, the purchase agreement will be concluded, and payment will be triggered.
In the event of payment by invoice, the Customer will make a legally binding offer to purchase the products in the shopping cart by clicking on the button "Buy Now". Thereafter, the Customer will receive an email with the payment details. A purchase agreement will be concluded by separate declaration of acceptance, email confirmation of shipment, or delivery of the products, whichever occurs first.
(d) If the Customer has clicked on the button "Directly to PayPal," the Customer will be transferred from the shopping cart directly to the website of PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., Luxembourg. As described in more detail in Section 3.7 (b) below, the Customer will make payment for the products on the website of PayPal following the steps required for using PayPal.

Only when the button "Buy Now" is clicked on the Portal will the Customer place his/her order, a purchase agreement will be concluded, and payment will be triggered.
(e) In any event, the Customer receives confirmation of receipt of the order immediately after the order is placed. Unless otherwise provided above, this confirmation only will serve as the declaration of acceptance if this is expressly stated in the confirmation of receipt of the order or is implied by a request for payment. If an offer is not accepted by any of the aforementioned methods, Outletcity may accept the offer by sending a confirmation of shipment by email or delivering the ordered products. In each case acceptance must be declared within 14 days from the date of the Customer's contract offer. Otherwise the Customer will no longer be bound by his/her contract offer.
(f) Outletcity shall have no obligation to accept any offers from a Customerer to enter into a contract and may reject any offer at any time and for any or no reasons. In such case Outletcity shall notify the Member that the offer has been rejected.
(a) Outletcity delivers products after the Customer has made payment in advance by bank transfer to Outletcity’s bank account. Following receipt of the order by Outletcity, the Customer will receive the necessary payment details. Products are shipped after payment has been received.
In the case of payment by SOFORT bank transfer, the Customer will be offered the opportunity, after he/she has made his/her contract offer, to switch to the website of SOFORT GmbH, Munich, which operates the SOFORT bank transfer service, and to make advance payment in accordance with paragraph (a) and subject to the terms and conditions of the SOFORT website. SOFORT is a service where Outletcity receives the transfer credit immediately. This speeds up the entire ordering process. The Customer needs his/her bank account number, bank code, the PIN and TAN of his/her bank account, which must be made available to SOFORT GmbH for execution of the payment transfer. The Customer must ensure that he/she has a right to do so under the terms of the contract with his/her bank. Using the secure payment form of SOFORT GmbH, which is not accessible to Outletcity, SOFORT will make an automated and real-time transfer to the Customer's online bank account. In the process, the amount of the purchase price will be transferred immediately and directly to the bank account of Outletcity. If the payment method SOFORT transfer is selected, a prefilled form will open up at the end of the ordering process. This form will already include the bank account information of Outletcity. In addition, the amount to be transferred and the intended purpose will already be displayed in the form. The Customer must now select the country in which his/her online bank account is located and enter the bank code. Next, the Customer will enter the same access data as are used to log in for online banking (account number and PIN). The Customer must then confirm his order by entering the TAN. Immediately thereafter, the Customer will receive confirmation of the transaction, if applicable. Generally, any Internet user can use the SOFORT transfer payment method, provided that he/she has an activated online bank account with a PIN/TAN procedure. A few banks do not offer the SOFORT transfer payment method. For additional information as to whether a bank supports this service, please refer to https://www.sofort.com/ger-DE/kaeufer/su/online-zahlen-mit-sofort-ueberweisung/ . Once payment has been confirmed to us by SOFORT GmbH, we will initiate the shipping process.
In the case of the payment methods direct debit, credit card, and PayPal, the data required due the nature of the selected payment method will be requested in mandatory fields during the ordering process and must be truthfully provided by the Customer.
In the case of payment by direct debit, payment once again will be made in advance upon placement of the order after Outletcity has confirmed receipt of the order and declared acceptance.
In the case of payment by credit card, payment will be authorized upon placement of the order after Outletcity has confirmed receipt of the order and declared acceptance. Payment authorization reserves the total order amount on the credit card account. The credit card will not be charged until the order is shipped.
In the case of payment by PayPal, payment will be made after the payment data have been entered on the website of PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., Luxembourg. For this purpose it may be necessary to open an account with this payment provider. The execution of payment transfers may depend on whether PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. enters into a contractual relationship with the user. Verification of the Customer's identity may result in delays. For additional information, please refer to the PayPal website and its terms and conditions. Once payment has been confirmed by PayPal to Outletcity, Outletcity will start the shipping process.
In the case of payment by invoice, payment will be made after receipt of the products. Payment is due 14 days after receipt of the products. After 14 days since receipt of the products have passed, the Customer will be deemed in default without requiring any past due notice. The bank account information and exact invoice amount will be enclosed with the package and will also be communicated to the Customer by email. The invoice amount must be transferred to the account stated in the invoice.
