General terms and conditions of business
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the following conditions apply to all our deliveries and services. These General Terms and Conditions shall be deemed to have been accepted at the latest upon receipt of the goods. Purchasing conditions of the buyer shall only apply if they have been confirmed by us in writing. Should one of the following conditions be or become invalid, the validity of the remaining conditions shall not be affected.
2. offers and contracts
Our offers are subject to change without notice. Order confirmations are only issued on special request and must be checked immediately after receipt. In all other respects, the execution of the order shall be deemed to be an order confirmation. Conclusions, agreements or declarations shall only become binding for the supplier upon written confirmation. All obligations of the supplier arising from the business relationship are subject to the reservation of proper self-supply.
The prices are ex works, without packaging, unless expressly agreed otherwise. The statutory value-added tax is charged additionally in each case. The prices valid on the day of delivery shall be charged.
4.terms of payment
Unless other written agreements have been made, the settlement of the invoice amounts must be made within 30 days strictly net. In case of earlier payment we grant a discount of 3% after 7 days of settlement and 2% after 14 days of settlement. Invoice amounts under 25.00 Euro are payable immediately. Discountable acceptances are only accepted by us in payment after prior written agreement, which must be made immediately after delivery of the invoice. The buyer is liable for losses and receipt free of charges. Discount and bill charges shall be borne by the buyer. In the event of receipt of unsatisfactory information – even during the duration of the business relationship – we reserve the right to demand immediate payment of all our claims and to withdraw from unfinished orders. In the event of overdue payment, we reserve the right to charge interest on arrears at the usual bank rate.
5. reservation of title
The delivered goods remain our property until full payment – in the case of settlement of a bill of exchange until it has been honoured. The buyer may sell or use the goods delivered by us in the regular course of business, but may not pledge or transfer ownership of the goods to third parties before full payment has been made or an acceptance has been honoured. If the goods are pledged, we must be notified immediately. If the goods are pledged to third parties before payment has been made, the purchaser hereby assigns to us all claims to which he is entitled or which arise from the resale. If payments have already been made to the buyer, the buyer is merely a trustee for the amounts received. Processing of the goods subject to retention of title shall be carried out for the supplier as manufacturer within the meaning of § 950 BGB (German Civil Code) without obligating the supplier; the processed goods shall be deemed to be goods subject to retention of title.
Complaints will only be considered if they are made in writing within 3 days of receipt of the goods and the goods are still in the condition in which they were delivered and have raw material or manufacturing defects. For defective pieces we will deliver a replacement free of charge or credit the amount due. In case of transport damage, a complaint must be made immediately to the carrier.
7. packaging and transport
Packaging is charged at cost price. In the case of freight-free return of crates, we will credit 2/3 of the calculated value. Package packaging is charged at cost price and is not taken back. The goods will be delivered by the cheapest mode of transport.
8. place of jurisdiction and place of performance
Unless otherwise prescribed by law, the place of performance for our deliveries is Bad Friedrichshall and the place of jurisdiction is Heilbronn.
