Should the delivery be delayed, we shall inform the Customer thereof. In the event of prepayment, the commodity shall not be shipped until payment has been received.
b. The delivery period shall begin with the dispatch of the confirmation of order, but not before the documents, approvals and releases to be procured by the Purchaser have been provided and an agreed deposit has been received. The delivery period shall have been kept when either the delivery item has left the factory prior to its expiration or the readiness for shipment has been communicated.
c. The delivery period shall be reasonably extended in the event of measures within the scope of industrial disputes, particularly strike and lockout, as well as in the event of the occurrence of unforeseeable obstacles, which are outside the Supplier’s influence, inasmuch as such obstacles have an influence on the completion or delivery of the delivery item. This shall also apply when the circumstances occur on Subcontractors’ premises. The previously mentioned circumstances shall not be the Supplier’s responsibility, even if they occur during an already existing delay. In critical cases, the Supplier shall inform the Purchaser of the beginning and end of such obstacles as soon as possible.
d. Should the Supplier be required to pay compensation, the claim to compensation to which the Purchaser is entitled – inasmuch as the contract relates to one of the Purchaser’s commercial activities – shall be limited to the foreseeable damage at the time of concluding the contract, and in fact to ½% for every full week of the delay, but overall to a maximum of 5% of the value of that part of the total delivery, which cannot be used punctually or contractually as a result of the delay or non-delivery.
e. Should shipment ensue later than agreed at the Purchaser’s request, the costs of storage shall be invoiced – beginning one month after the notification of readiness for shipment. In the event of storage in the Supplier’s factory, however, a minimum of 0,5% of the invoice amount for each month commenced. However, after the setting and unproductive conclusion of a reasonable period of time, the Supplier shall be entitled, after notifying the Purchaser, to otherwise dispose of the delivery item and resupply the Purchaser within an appropriately extended period of time.
f. A prerequisite of compliance with the delivery period shall be the fulfilment of the Purchaser’s contractual obligations.
7. Dispatch and transfer of risk
The risk shall transfer to the Customer as soon as the consignment has been transferred to the person performing the transport. This shall not apply, however, when the Customer is a consumer.
a. Should the delivery item be defective or should warranted characteristics be missing from it, or should it become defective within the warranty period due to production or material shortages, at the Customer’s choice, we shall deliver a replacement or perform a repair, with all other warranty claims being excluded. We shall reserve the right to either perform the repair work ourselves or to commit the sold commodity to the manufacturer or importer for repair. A liability on our part with regard to any repair work incorrectly performed by the manufacturer or importer shall be excluded. Repeated repairs shall be admissible.
b. The warranty period shall be 24 months for private end customers and 12 months for commercial customers. It shall begin on the date of delivery. This shall not affect any extended manufacturer’s guarantee.
c. Obvious defects shall be reported to us in writing no later than within two weeks of the delivery. During shipment the commodity shall be immediately inspected by the Customer and, in the event of complaints, both the commodity and the packaging shall be kept ready for the freight carrier to inspect. The defective delivery items shall be kept ready for our inspection in the same state in which they were on the date the defect was established or, in the event of shipment, shall be returned to us in the original packaging.
d. Should the repair or replacement delivery fail after a reasonable period of time, the Customer may choose to request a reduction in the purchase price, rescission of the contract or damages.
9. Limitation of liability
Claims for compensation arising from the infringement of contractual obligations, which are not associated with the warranty right of consumers, as well as claims for compensation arising from tortious act, are excluded against both ourselves and our vicarious agents, unless the damage was caused intentionally or by gross negligence.
10. Retention of ownership
a. Until such time as all claims, to which we are entitled against the Customer on every legal ground, either now or in the future, have been satisfied, we shall retain the ownership of the delivered (- goods conditional commodity).
b. In the event of contractually infringing behaviour on the Customer’s part – particularly in the event of default of payment – we shall be entitled to take back the conditional commodity. Our taking back or pledging of the conditional commodity should always be regarded as withdrawal from the contract pursuant to § 503 paragraph 2 of the BGB (German Civil Code).
a. Our invoices shall fall due for immediate payment, without deduction, once the invoice has been issued; a cash discount shall be excluded.
b. Deliveries shall ensue against prepayment or via credit card settlement only.
c. In the event of electronic payment procedures (credit card, direct debit), the debit shall be made immediately after the commodity has been ordered.
12. Place of fulfilment, place of jurisdiction, applicable law
Place of fulfilment and place of jurisdiction for all claims arising from the Terms and Conditions of Business, particularly from the deliveries, is Ulm – even if sales or deliveries have been made by a subsidiary. This place of jurisdiction shall also apply to disputes concerning the materialisation and validity of the contractual relationship. The Supplier may also bring charges at the competent court for the Purchaser’s domicile. The law of the Republic of Germany shall apply.
13. Data protection
We will use Customer data exclusively for the processing of orders or for rendering our other performances and services. All Customer data will be stored and processed by us, taking into account the relevant provisions of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG; German Data Protection Act) and the Teledienstdatenschutzgesetz (TDDSG; Tele Services Data Protection Act).
