C. Participation via the hybrid module
- The participant must register on the website https://dsp.hsr-auktion.de . A participation contract is concluded between the organizer and the participant, which is also based on these auction conditions and through which the organizer presents and offers the horses of the exhibitor as a representative. There is no right to participate. The organizer reserves the right to block a user from bidding and to revoke the registration. Each participant can only have one account. Therefore, in particular, re-registration is prohibited in the event that an account of the participant has already been blocked. A registration can be deleted at any time without giving reasons in the profile of the bidder; in this case, all registered data will be permanently deleted, unless they are required for an ongoing bidding process or the processing of an acquisition that has already taken place. In this case, the deletion will only take place when it is finally ruled out that the data is still needed.
- When registering, the participant must provide complete and correct personal information. In particular, a valid telephone number, e-mail address, home address and date of birth must be provided. It must also be stated whether he submits his bids as a consumer within the meaning of § 13 BGB or an entrepreneur within the meaning of § 14 BGB. Incorrect information entitles the organizer to terminate the participation contract without notice.
- Participants can be natural persons or legal entities. Natural persons can only register for use if they are of legal age and have unlimited legal capacity. Legal entities must name the natural persons authorized to represent them, e.g. managing directors or board members, with their full name, address and type of power of representation.

Liability also includes the indemnification of third-party claims against the organizer. If the participant becomes aware of the misuse or loss of the access data, the participant must inform the organizer immediately by telephone so that access can be blocked.

D. Information on the state of health
The foals coming up for auction have been clinically examined by a veterinarian according to their age. A protocol was drawn up for the exmination. This can be viewed on the auction page. The bidder is strongly advised to look at the veterinary examination protocol and, if necessary, to have it interpreted by a veterinarian of his choice. By submitting a bid, the bidder confirms that he has taken note of the reference to the possibility of inspecting the veterinary protocol. The veterinary protocol is a description of the health condition of the foal placed in the auction, but does not constitute a quality agreement within the meaning of §434 BGB . Neither the organizer nor the seller can make binding statements about the state of health of the foal. The veterinarian's protocol has no legal effect on the parties.
E. Acceptance and transfer of risk
- The acceptance of the foal must take place at the latest at the end of the sixth month of life at the place of residence of the exhibitor. The risk is transferred to the buyer six months after the foal's birthday.
- Earlier acceptance is permissible but requires the agreement of the exhibitor. Until the due date of the acceptance obligation, the exhibitor bears the risk and costs for up keeping, including the expenses for veterinarian and hoof care. At the end of the sixth month of life, the consequences of the delay in acceptance occur, so that the buyer has to bear the costs for up keeping and other expenses. With a knock-down of 8. 500.00 euros or higher, the seller has to deliver the foal nationally to the new owner or his breeding facility.
- A protocol is drawn up about the surrender of the horse. With the signing of the acceptance protocol by the buyer or his representative, the obligation to deliver the foal to the buyer's location ends. The seller must ensure that the hooves are in perfect condition for the handover. The foal must be handed over dewormed, the last deworming date will be communicated to the buyer upon delivery. The foal's dentition corresponds to the norm, as well as the condition of the testicles in colts (unless otherwise stated in the examination protocol at auction).
- If the buyer rejects the acceptance of the foal due to claims for defects asserted by him, the assessment by the head of the Clinic for Horses at the University of Leipzig or a representative commissioned by him is binding for the buyer and seller with regard to the veterinary assessment. The costs for the use of the veterinary clinic shall be borne by the buyer, insofar as his notice of defects proves to be unfounded, otherwise the seller.

The withdrawal period is 14 days from the day on which the buyer or a third party named by him, who is not the carrier, has taken possession of the horse. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the buyer must inform the organizer by means of a clear declaration (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) of his decision to withdraw from this contract. In order to comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient for the buyer to send the notification of the exercise of the right of withdrawal before the expiry of the withdrawal period.
