2. ENTRY INTO AGREEMENTS

Orders submitted online by the Purchaser are bound to the present terms of sale and delivery.

The Seller will send the confirmation of order to the e-mail address entered by the Purchaser in connection with the placement of the order. Any complaints concerning the contents of the confirmation of order are to be submitted to the Seller immediately and without undue delay, otherwise the agreement will be considered to have been entered into on the basis of the terms and conditions stated in the confirmation of order.


3. DELIVERY

In the absence of any express agreement to the contrary, delivery will be made DDP or DDU to the destination of the items in accordance with INCOTERMS 2000. All deliveries (DDU or DDP) will be shipped by the carrier selected by the Seller at any time.  Deliveries at set times are not possible. 

All deliveries from the Seller will be shipped as soon as possible and within a reasonable period.

Under no circumstances can the Seller be held liable for any operating losses, loss of earnings or other indirect losses resulting from delivery delays. The Seller’s liability for compensation for delays shall under no circumstances exceed a sum equivalent to the sum invoiced for the order in question.

In the event of DDP shipments (INCOTERMS 2000) to countries outside the EU, customs duty is charged on a separate line on the invoice. For pallet shipments, a fee of € 25,- will be added. For any DDU shipments to countries outside the EU, the items are delivered "duty unpaid”, and the customs fee is therefore in all respects a matter between the freight carrier and the Purchaser of the item(s).

Any fees for customs and/or import VAT to countries outside the EU are of no concern to the Seller.

6. TERMS OF PAYMENT AND OWNERSHIP RESERVATIONS

The Seller retains full right of ownership over items delivered until such time as payment has been made in full.

The terms of payment are stated on the confirmation of order and invoice from the Seller. Payments are always only to be made directly to the Seller’s account, in accordance with the account details stated on the invoice. Agents have no authority to receive payment on behalf of the Seller.

7. RESPONSIBILITY FOR DEFECTS

The Purchaser is obliged to examine and check the items(s) immediately on reception.

The Purchaser is to issue written notification of any defects in the item(s) directly to the Seller without undue delay after such defects have or should have been identified by the Purchaser. All complaints and claims from the Purchaser are to be submitted in writing to the Seller and accompanied by appropriate documentation / pictures. If the Purchaser fails to submit a complaint no later than five (5) days after delivery, the Purchaser shall forfeit the right to submit complaints concerning defects in the item(s) delivered.

If, in connection with deliveries sent DDU or DDP (INCOTERMS 2000), the Purchaser notices missing parcels or transport damage to the item(s) or packaging on reception, a complaint is to be made immediately to the freight carrier – by writing a comment on the freight note or covering note, for example. At the same time, the Seller is to be informed so that an agreement can be reached concerning re-delivery or crediting.

The Seller’s liability for defects is limited to re-delivery or any other form of rectification of defects identified. If the defects cannot be rectified, the Seller will issue a credit note for the purchase to the Purchaser.

The Purchaser may only terminate the purchase in the event that any defects have not been rectified within a reasonable period after the Purchaser submitted the complaint. If the purchase is terminated on account of defects in the item(s) delivered, the Purchaser shall only be entitled to a refund of the purchase price on placing the item(s) at the disposal of the Seller in generally the same condition as on reception. No additional claims can be made on the Seller. Please note in particular that the Seller will not accept any liability for operating losses, loss of earnings or any other consequential financial losses.


8. PRODUCT LIABILITY

In the event of damage to items which, through their nature, are intended for commercial use (commercial item damage), the Seller is consequentially liable for defects in items sold, pursuant to the regulations concerning product liability applicable at any time. However, see below:

The Seller shall not be held liable for damage to property or inventory caused by an item sold that occurs while the item is in the possession of the Purchaser. 

The Seller accepts no liability for damage to products made by the Purchaser or to products which include same.

The Seller accepts no liability for operating losses, loss of earnings or any other indirect losses.

Liability pursuant to this provision is limited to € 5.000,- per incident of damage.

The Seller’s limitation of liability – see above – shall not be applied in the event that the condition that caused the occurrence of product liability can be ascribed to gross negligence on the part of the Seller.

In so far as the Seller may incur liability to pay damages to a third party in connection with the Purchaser’s use of items delivered, the Purchaser shall indemnify the Seller to the extent that the Seller may be held liable to the third party for damage and losses for which, pursuant to the above, the Seller is not liable to the Purchaser.
