General Terms and Conditions
Validity of Terms and Conditions for Business and Deliveries
Once an order is placed by the purchaser, the following terms and conditions will apply. Any changes to these terms and conditions must be in writing in order for them to be valid. This also applies to changes to the written form requirement. Alternative terms and conditions of the purchaser will not be part of the contract, even if we do not oppose them explicitly. Should any of our terms and conditions be invalid, this will not make any of the other terms and conditions invalid.
All price quotations are non-binding. Only our order confirmation in writing - either by email or fax - will form a contract, which will arrive at the latest with the delivery.
All prices quoted exclude VAT.
Freight, transport insurance and packaging are ex works. Any damages incurred during transport must be recorded immediately in writing by the customer at the point of delivery.
In the case of strikes, lock-outs, unforseeable engine damage, the impossiblity of obtaining raw materials, or delays in the delivery of raw materials or similar, the supplier will not be liable to fulfil his/her delivery obligations. However, the purchaser cannot withdraw his/her order or claim any compensation.
Hand-over of deliveries
All damages need to be recorded immediately in writing.
Claims for compensation can only be made for a value no higher than the total order value.
Reservation of ownership rights
The delivered goods remain our property until full payment of all open payable items, including any additional costs. Delay in payment will entitle us to retrieve the goods at any time. The goods delivered under this reservation of ownership rights must be handled with care by the purchaser and stored accordingly. In case the purchaser breaches the above obligations, he/she will be liable to pay compensation. The purchaser is not entitled to pledge or assign as security or other credit the goods sold under reservation of ownership rights. The purchaser is obliged to pay the entire extra-judicial pre-trial operating costs incurred in case of tardiness.
