Terms and Conditions

Terms and conditions

1. scope of application/ general

1. 1 All offers are subject to our general terms and conditions and we accept orders exclusively under these conditions. Our general terms and conditions apply only to companies in accordance with §310 Abs. 1 BGB.

General terms and conditions of the customer or regulations of the customer deviating from our terms and conditions or agreements are only binding for us if we expressly acknowledge them in writing. Our General Terms and Conditions shall also apply if we accept orders from customers with knowledge of terms and conditions of the customer which conflict with or deviate from our General Terms and Conditions.

For the sale of all products of our distribution program only the following conditions apply. Terms and conditions contradicting our terms and conditions require our express written consent tobe effective.

1. 2 By placing an order and accepting deliveries, the customer acknowledges the validity of our general terms and conditions not only for the relevant transaction but also for all future transactions.

 

2. offer, order and delivery

2. 1 Our offers are subject to change without notice. Documents belonging to the offer, such as illustrations, drawings, etc. , shall only be regarded as accurate to size and weight if this has been expressly confirmed by us in writing. We reserve our property rights and copyrights to these documents. They may not be made accessible to third parties without our consent. If the order is not placed, they must be returned to us immediately.
2. 2 In cases of doubt, our written order confirmation shall be exclusively authoritative for the contents of the contract.
2. 3 We reserve the right to refuse orders without giving reasons.

 

3. telephone orders

Telephone orders are to be confirmed immediately by the client in writing. For the correctness of the supply due to telephone order we do not take over guarantee.

 

4. scope of the delivery obligation

Our written order confirmation issued on the basis of the order shall be decisive for the scope, type and time of delivery. Excessor short deliveries of up to 10% of the ordered quantity cannot be objected to. Partial deliveries are permissible.

5. dispatch

If we do not have any special or deviating shipping instructions, we will ship the goods by the most favourable route at our discretion. The goods are shipped at the risk and expense of the customer (exw- ex works). This also applies if the transport is carried out with our own vehicle or if we bear or advance the transport costs.

6. delivery date

We make every effort to meet the delivery dates. Delivery dates are exclusively binding for us if we have agreed them in writing. Otherwise deliveries shall be made within a reasonable time after our order confirmation. If, however, we are prevented from complying with the delivery time by unforeseeable circumstances which we were unable to avert despite exercising due care (e. g. industrial disputes, civil unrest, official measures, operational disruptions, delays in the delivery of essential rawmaterials, auxiliary materials or operating supplies), the delivery time shall be extended by a reasonable period of time without being able to assert claims against us. If the afore mentioned circumstances occur at the client’s premises, the same legal consequences shall apply to the client’s obligation to take delivery.
