The platform serves as a point of contact for the out-of-court settlement of disputes relating to contractual obligations arising from online sales contracts. More information is available at the following link: We are neither willing nor obliged to participate in a dispute settlement procedure before a consumer arbitration board.

1. All agreements and offers are based on the following conditions; they are recognized when the order is placed. The conditions apply exclusively unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing. Conflicting or deviating terms and conditions are not recognized by us even if the delivery is carried out by us without reservation after the customer has objected to the validity of our terms and conditions.
2. According to § 13 BGB, a consumer within the meaning of the following provisions is any natural person who concludes a legal transaction for a purpose that can neither be attributed to their commercial nor their independent professional activity.
3. According to § 14 BGB, an entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity who, when concluding a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of their commercial or independent professional activity.
4. All agreements made between us and the customer for the purpose of executing this contract are set out in writing in this contract. The written form can be replaced by the electronic form, unless the law provides otherwise.

2. Execution of the delivery
1. Our offers are non-binding unless otherwise agreed in writing. An order is considered accepted when we have confirmed it in writing. Only the text of our order confirmation is binding.
2. The documents, illustrations, drawings, weights and dimensions, samples, etc. attached to our offer are only approximately authoritative, unless the offer states otherwise.
3. If we manufacture parts according to customer drawings, the drawings made by us and approved by the customer are decisive. If the customer has approved drawings or samples, any deviations must be agreed in writing; they entitle us to charge the customer for any additional costs.

3. Delivery time
1. The delivery times stated by us are only approximate, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Agreed delivery times only count from the day of our written order confirmation. In any case, they only begin to run when all technical details have been mutually regulated and the checked documents, drawings and samples are binding. Correct and timely self-delivery, in particular of the items we only sell, remains expressly reserved.
2. Partial deliveries and early deliveries are generally reserved. With regard to the production conditions, deviating under- or over-deliveries of +/-10% are permissible; In any case, the customer is not entitled to refuse acceptance of the goods or to assert claims against us in the event of under-delivery.
3. Extended in the event of force majeure, strikes of any kind, lockouts, war, untimely delivery to our suppliers and other unforeseeable and/or unavoidable and/or extraordinary events and all other circumstances for which we are not responsible a delivery period specified by us will correspond accordingly, of which the customer will be informed. If the delivery and service obligation assumed by us becomes impossible due to an event described above, we are released from our contractual obligations and are entitled to withdraw from the contract. Claims for damages by the customer are excluded in this respect.
4. If the delivery periods specified by us expire for reasons for which we are responsible, the customer is entitled to demand compensation for delay of 0.5% for each full week of delay, provided that he can prove damage caused by the delay, but no more than 5% % of the delivery value (final invoice amount excluding VAT) for the respective delayed deliveries; in this respect, however, all further claims are excluded. However, the customer is only entitled to claims for damages if the delay is due to intent or gross negligence on our part. This does not apply in the case of a commercial fixed transaction or in cases in which the customer’s interest in performance ceases due to the delay that has occurred.

If this does not happen within a reasonable period of time, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract without the customer being entitled to any claims for damages.
6. If the shipment is delayed at the request of the customer or for other reasons for which we are not responsible, we are entitled to charge additional expenses of 0.5% at most 5% after one week, calculated from the notification of readiness for shipment. of the delivery value of the stored goods for each started week, unless we can prove higher damage.

This also applies if we take over the organization of the transport including the freight costs. If the shipment is delayed at the request of the customer or for other reasons for which we are not responsible, the risk passes to the customer from the respective date of notification of readiness for shipment.
2. If the goods delivered by us are assembled, the risk of accidental loss or accidental deterioration of the ordered parts free place of assembly is transferred to the customer, unless otherwise stated in writing in the contract. However, this does not apply if the dispatch is delayed for reasons for which we are not responsible; in this case paragraph (1) sentence 2 applies.

5. Liability for material defects in sales contracts
1. The limitation period for material defects is 1 year for newly manufactured items if the customer is not a consumer. Otherwise the statutory limitation period of 2 years applies. In the case of used goods, the limitation period is 1 year if the customer is a consumer. If the customer is not a consumer, the sale of used items takes place to the exclusion of any liability for material defects.
2. The customer’s claims for the rectification of defects are primarily limited to a claim for supplementary performance, i.e. a claim for rectification or a replacement delivery. If the customer is not a consumer, we have the right to choose between repairs or the delivery of spare parts. If the repair or replacement delivery fails, the customer can demand a price reduction or withdraw from the contract. The rectification has failed if and to the extent that a reasonable deadline set for rectification has elapsed without result.
3. Otherwise, we are liable according to the statutory provisions if we have acted fraudulently or our breach of contract is based on intent or gross negligence. Furthermore, we are liable for culpable injury to life, limb or health. In addition, we are liable according to the provisions of the Product Liability Act. Furthermore, we are liable in accordance with the statutory provisions if we have culpably violated an essential contractual obligation.

5. In the event of rectification, we are obliged to bear all expenses necessary for the purpose of remedying the defect, in particular transport, travel, labor and material costs. This only applies to entrepreneurs if the costs do not increase due to the fact that the purchased item was taken to a place other than the place of performance.
6. The customer must assert claims for the rectification of defects with us. If the purchaser is a dealer, he is obliged to send us any notices of defects from his customer without delay. If he does not comply with this obligation, he must bear any resulting damage himself.
7.

The customer must demonstrate and prove that the assembly was carried out competently.

6. Extended right of lien and liability for material defects in work contracts
1. Due to our claim from the order, we have a contractual right of lien on the items that come into the customer’s possession as a result of the order.
2. The contractual right of lien can also be asserted for claims from work previously carried out and other services, insofar as they are related to the subject matter of the order. For other claims arising from the business relationship, the contractual right of lien only applies if these are undisputed or if there is a legally binding title and the object of the order belongs to the customer.
3. Claims by the customer due to material defects become statute-barred – in the case of entrepreneurs – one year after acceptance of the object of performance. In this case, the statutory provisions apply to other customers – consumers. If the customer accepts the object of the order despite being aware of a defect, he is only entitled to claims for defects if he reserves the right to do so at the time of acceptance.
4. The acceptance of the object of performance by the customer takes place in our company, unless otherwise agreed.

7. Business recourse for sales to commercial resellers

3. Within the scope of this entrepreneurial recourse, the customer has no claim for damages from us.

8. Goods Return/Restocking Fee
1.

1. If we assemble the parts supplied by us, Clause 5 applies accordingly, unless otherwise stipulated below.
2. Interruptions and hindrances of any kind during assembly for which we are not responsible shall be borne by the customer. This applies in particular if we do not have access to electricity, compressed air, water and other resources free of charge for the duration of assembly until final acceptance.

Payments based on bills of exchange and checks are only deemed to have been made after the respective amount has been credited to our account; if checks with financing bills of exchange are issued, only when these bills of exchange are collected.
2. If the purchaser is in default of payment, we are entitled – in relation to companies – to demand default interest of 8% (for consumers: 5%) p.a. above the respective base interest rate plus default damages, unless the purchaser proves to us that the damage caused by default was lower. Further claims remain reserved.
3. The customer is only entitled to a right of set-off if and to the extent that the counterclaim is undisputed or has been legally established. The customer can only assert a right of retention against us if the right of retention is based on any counterclaims from the underlying contractual relationship. If the delivered item/service is defective, the customer can only assert a right of retention if the defect is recognized by us or is undisputed.

12. Retention of Title
1. The goods remain our property until all claims arising from the business relationship between us and the customer have been paid in full.
2. The customer is entitled to resell the reserved goods delivered by us in the ordinary course of business. We can revoke this authorization for justified reasons if our interests are endangered, in particular if the customer is unable to pay. The right to resell does not exist if the customer and his customer agree that the customer’s claim against the customer from the resale should be non-transferrable.
3. In cases of justified resale, the customer hereby assigns to us all future claims arising from the sale of the reserved goods against his customers in the amount of the respective factor value agreed between him and us. These claims also include those that the customer has only accepted on account of performance. If the customer includes the claim from the sale of the reserved goods in an existing current account relationship with his customers, the recognized final balance is deemed to have been assigned up to the amount of the invoice value agreed with the customer. The customer remains entitled to collect the claims from the sale of the reserved goods until he has not defaulted on payment or financial collapse.

If the reserved goods are combined, processed or mixed with other goods that do not belong to us, the customer grants us the resulting co-ownership share in the new item in the ratio of the invoice value of our reserved goods to the other processed goods at the respective time of processing, connection or blending in. The purchaser also assigns to us the claims that he obtains against a third party by connecting the delivered item to a property, in the amount of our delivery claim as security.
6. The customer is not entitled to pledge the goods subject to retention of title or to assign them as security; in the event of enforcement measures by third parties on the goods subject to retention of title or on the claims assigned in advance, the customer is obliged to inform the creditors of our ownership or the pledging. He is also obliged to inform us immediately of these enforcement measures so that we are able to file a third-party objection action if necessary. The customer has to bear the costs of any third-party objection action.
7. If our security exceeds the claims to be secured at the time the respective contract was concluded by more than 25%, we will release the security to this extent at the request of the customer.
