INTERRUPTION AND DELIVERY

In the event of force majeure, industrial action, official measures as well as malfunctions through no fault of ours or our suppliers, we are entitled to extend the delivery period by the duration of the hindrance, at the latest by 8 weeks. After this period, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract. A claim for compensation on the part of the buyer is excluded. This also applies to imported articles if these imports are prevented or restricted by foreign or domestic official measures, as well as in the event of demonstrable delays in the delivery of goods caused by the upstream supplier

COMPLAINTS

1. The buyer can only make complaints in writing to us (not to sales representatives) within one week of receipt of the goods, unless these are commercially small, technically unavoidable deviations in quality, color, width, weight, equipment or of the design. In the case of hidden defects, the notice period extends to 6 months.
2. In the event of justified complaints, we have the right – at our discretion – to the effect that the goods have been returned to us within a further period of one week – in their original salable condition (eg item labeling, product labels, bags, etc.) – delivery of defect-free replacement goods or credit after receipt of the goods.

PAYMENT TERMS

1. Payment must be made in cash, check, bank, checking or postal check transfers, whereby checks are only accepted on account of performance. Bills of exchange are only accepted after prior written agreement, with a term of up to 90 days. Bank, discount and collection costs are to be reimbursed to us.
2. Conditions: 10 days 4% discount, 30 days 2.25% discount, 60 days net from the respective invoice date. If the payment term is overdue, interest due in the amount of 10% is charged even without a reminder.
The assertion of further default interest remains reserved.
3. Offsetting against contested and not legally established counterclaims and assertion of a right of retention on the part of the buyer are excluded.
4. If the buyer is in arrears with the payment of a claim, regardless of previously agreed payment terms or due dates, all other claims are due immediately. In this case we are entitled to postpone our deliveries until all due claims have been paid. We are also entitled to withdraw from the contract and to claim compensation in the amount of 20% of the total undelivered order value.

OWNERSHIP

1. All goods are delivered under retention of title and remain our property until all claims, including future claims arising from the business relationship with the buyer, have been paid in full. The buyer may sell them in the normal course of business, but neither pledge them nor assign them as collateral or dispose of them in any other way.
2. If there are serious doubts about the solvency or in the event of a delay in payment or if an application is made to open bankruptcy or settlement proceedings, we are entitled to demand the goods back at any time, even without setting a deadline or clarifying the withdrawal, insofar as it appears necessary to cover all our claims.
For this purpose, we are entitled to enter the buyer’s premises in which the goods are stored and to take possession of the goods again. When reselling, our goods are to be calculated separately from others.
3.If the goods are resold in whole or in part, all claims arising from the resale against the third party will pass to us for security without the need for a special agreement with us or the third party. The buyer undertakes to object to third party enforcement and to inform us immediately. Intervention costs are borne by the buyer.
4. The retention of title to the goods is conditionally such that upon full fulfillment of all of our claims from the business relationship with the buyer, ownership of the goods subject to retention of title passes to the buyer without further notice.

DATA PROCESSING

We are entitled to process the data received about the buyer in relation to the business relationship or in connection with this, regardless of whether it comes from the buyer himself or from a third party, in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act. Your documents are recorded in the EDP.

DIFFERENT CONDITIONS

Purchasing or other conditions of our buyers only apply if we have expressly agreed to them in writing.
