(5) Transfer of risk upon shipment
If the goods are shipped to the customer at the customer’s request, the risk of accidental loss or accidental deterioration of the goods shall pass to the customer upon dispatch to the customer, at the latest upon leaving the factory/warehouse. This shall apply irrespective of whether the goods are shipped from the place of performance or who bears the freight costs.
Rights of retention, reservation of title
(1) The customer shall only be entitled to exercise a right of retention insofar as its counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.
(2) We retain title to the delivered item until full payment of all claims arising from the delivery contract is received. We shall be entitled to take back the object of sale if the customer acts in breach of contract. Pledging or transfer of ownership by way of security shall not be permissible prior to the transfer of ownership of the goods subject to retention of title.
(3) If you are an Entrepreneur, the following shall apply in addition:
(a) As long as ownership has not yet been transferred to the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall be obliged to treat the purchased goods with care. As long as ownership has not yet passed to him, the Purchaser must inform us immediately in writing if the delivered item is seized or exposed to other interventions by third parties. Insofar as the third party is not in a position to reimburse us for the court and out-of-court costs of an action pursuant to § 771 ZPO (German Code of Civil Procedure), the Purchaser shall be liable for the loss incurred by us.
(b) The Purchaser shall be entitled to resell the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business. The Purchaser hereby assigns to us the claims against the customer arising from the resale of the retained goods in the amount of the final invoice amount agreed with us (including value added tax). This assignment shall apply irrespective of whether the purchased goods have been resold without or after processing. The Purchaser shall remain authorized to collect the claim even after the assignment. Our authority to collect the claim ourselves shall remain unaffected. However, we shall not collect the claim as long as the Purchaser meets his payment obligations from the proceeds collected, is not in default of payment and, in particular, no application for the opening of insolvency proceedings has been filed or payments have not been suspended.
(c) The processing or transformation of the object of sale by the Purchaser shall always be carried out in our name and on our behalf. In this case, the Purchaser’s expectant right to the object of sale shall continue to apply to the transformed object. If the object of sale is processed with other objects not belonging to us, we shall acquire co-ownership of the new object in proportion of the objective value of our object of sale to the other processed objects at the time of processing. The same shall apply in the event of mixing. If the mixing takes place in such a way that the Purchaser’s item is to be regarded as the main item, it shall be deemed agreed that the customer transfers co-ownership to us on a pro rata basis and shall keep the sole ownership or co-ownership thus created in safe custody for us. To secure our claims against the Purchaser, the Purchaser further assigns to us such claims against a third party as accrue to him through the combination of the reserved goods with a property; we accept this assignment now in advance.
(d) We undertake to release the securities to which we are entitled at the request of the Purchaser if their value exceeds the claims to be secured by more than 20%.
Defective claims (warranty)
(1) The statutory rights of liability for defects shall apply.
(2) As a consumer, you are requested to check the item immediately upon delivery for completeness, obvious defects and transport damage and to notify us and the carrier of any complaints as soon as possible. If you fail to do so, this shall have no effect on your statutory warranty claims.
(3) Insofar as you are an Entrepreneur, the following shall apply in deviation from the above warranty regulations:
(a) Only our own specifications and the product description shall be deemed agreed as the quality of the item.
(b) Warranty rights of the Purchaser presuppose that the Purchaser has duly fulfilled his obligations to inspect the goods and to give notice of defects in accordance with § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB).
(c) Claims for defects shall become statute-barred 12 months after delivery of the goods supplied by us to our Purchaser. The statutory limitation period shall apply to claims for damages in the event of intent and gross negligence as well as in the event of injury to life, limb and health which are based on an intentional or negligent breach of duty on the part of the user.
(d) Our consent must be obtained prior to any return of the goods.
(e) If, despite all due care and attention, the delivered goods show a defect which was already present at the time of the transfer of risk, we shall, at our discretion, either repair the goods or supply replacement goods, subject to timely notification of defects. We shall always be given the opportunity to remedy the defect within a reasonable period of time. Claims under a right of recourse shall remain unaffected by the above provision without restriction.
(f) If the subsequent performance fails, the Purchaser may – without prejudice to any claims for damages – withdraw from the contract or reduce the remuneration.
(g) There shall be no claims based on defect in cases of insignificant deviations from the agreed quality, of only minor impairment of usefulness, of natural wear and tear and of damage arising after the passing of risk from faulty or negligent handling, excessive strain, unsuitable equipment, faulty construction work, inappropriate foundations, or from particular external influences not assumed under the contract. If improper repair work or modifications are carried out by the Purchaser or third parties, no claims for defects shall exist for these, nor for the consequences resulting therefrom.
(h) Claims by the Purchaser for expenses incurred for the purpose of subsequent performance, in particular transport, travel, labor and material costs, shall be excluded to the extent that expenses are increased because the goods delivered by us were subsequently transported to a location other than the purchaser’s branch office, unless such transport is in accordance with their intended use.
(i) The Purchaser shall have a right of recourse against us only to the extent that the Purchaser has not entered into any agreements with its customer that exceed the statutory mandatory claims for defects. Furthermore, paragraph 3g shall apply accordingly to the scope of the Purchaser’s right of recourse against the supplier.
(1) This contract and the entire legal relationship between the parties shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply to the extent that the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state of the consumer’s habitual residence is not thereby withdrawn (principle of favorability).
(2) The place of performance for all services arising from the business relationship with us and the place of jurisdiction shall be our registered office if you are not a consumer but a merchant, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law. The same shall apply if you do not have a general place of jurisdiction in Germany or the EU or if your place of residence or habitual abode is unknown at the time the action is brought. The right to bring an action before the court at another statutory place of jurisdiction shall remain unaffected.
(3) All agreements made between the parties for the purpose of executing this contract are set out in writing in this contract.
The EU Commission has created an Internet platform for online dispute resolution. The platform serves as a contact point for the out-of-court settlement of disputes concerning contractual obligations arising from online purchase contracts. More information is available at the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr. We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute resolution procedure before a consumer arbitration board.
