These General Terms and Conditions of Delivery and Sale of the Seller are generally designed for legal transactions between companies. If, by way of exception, they are also used as a basis for legal transactions with consumers within the meaning of § 1 of the Consumer Protection Act, Federal Law Gazette 140/79, they shall only apply insofar as they do not contradict the provisions of the first main section of this Act.

1. Scope of application

1.1 The scope of these General Terms and Conditions of Delivery and Sale includes all offers, legal transactions and other services of the Seller. Within the framework of ongoing business relations, these General Terms and Conditions of Delivery and Sale shall apply to future services even if they are not expressly agreed in each case. Any deviating agreements must be in writing in order to be valid. Any (general) terms and conditions of the buyer are hereby rejected; these shall not bind the seller even if the seller does not reject them again upon conclusion of the contract.

1.2 All offers and cost estimates as well as descriptions of services in brochures, advertisements or on the Seller's website are subject to change without notice and without binding effect and are to be understood merely as an invitation to submit an offer; no warranty is assumed for the correctness of the cost estimate.

2. Prices

The Seller's prices are net prices (in euros) ex Seller's works/registered office, excluding packaging, freight, insurance, discounts and VAT, plus any price increases due to increases in production costs (material prices, wages, general overheads, etc.) between order and delivery.

3. Terms of payment, reservation of ownership

3.1 Receivables of the seller are due for payment promptly after invoicing, unless other terms of payment have been agreed in writing.

All ancillary costs of the contract, such as shipping costs, financing costs, costs of securing the purchase price claim in the land register, fees, interest and the like shall be borne by the buyer.

3.2 Offsetting with claims of the buyer against the seller is excluded. Furthermore, the buyer is not entitled to withhold payments due to warranty claims or other claims not recognized by the seller. Payments by the Buyer shall first be set off against repair costs, then against claims for spare parts, then against interest and other ancillary charges and only finally against the goods subject to retention of title.

3.3 If, after the conclusion of the contract, circumstances become known which give rise to justified doubts as to the Buyer's ability or willingness to pay and if the Buyer does not comply with the request for advance payment or a corresponding security deposit (at the Seller's discretion), the Seller shall be entitled, at its own discretion, to withhold performance or to withdraw from the contract in whole or in part without assuming any consequential costs whatsoever.

3.4 In the event of default in payment and/or breach of any other provision of the contract by the Buyer, loss of time is agreed. In addition, the seller is entitled to withdraw from the contract immediately. In the event of default, the statutory default interest shall be agreed. This shall not affect the Seller's right to claim further damages.

3.5 The object of purchase and its parts shall remain the sole property of the Seller (reserved property) until complete fulfillment of all (payment) obligations of the Buyer in connection with the respective legal transaction, even if individual parts have already been paid for. As long as the retention of title exists, a sale, pledge, transfer by way of security, lease or other transfer of the object of purchase is not permitted without the written consent of the seller. If the buyer fails to meet his payment obligations in whole or in part, if he is over indebted or has suspended payments, or if a petition for composition or bankruptcy is pending against the buyer's assets, the seller shall be entitled but not obliged to take possession of the object of purchase and to assert any further rights arising from the retention of title immediately.

3.6 The Seller shall be entitled to retain the individual notice of approval until all obligations of the Buyer in connection with the respective legal transaction have been fulfilled in full.

3.7 If a third party asserts a claim to the Seller's reserved property, the Buyer shall notify the Seller thereof immediately by registered letter and shall adequately defend the Seller's reserved property at its own expense.

3.8 For the duration of the retention of title, the object of purchase shall be insured by the buyer, at the seller's request, for the original price against all risks, including fire. The insurance policies shall be endorsed in favor of the Seller.

3.9 For the duration of the retention of title, the buyer is obliged to keep the object of purchase in proper condition and to have any necessary repairs carried out immediately - except in emergencies - in the seller's repair workshops or in an approved workshop.
