Conflicting or deviating terms and conditions of delivery or other restrictions of the Supplier shall not be accepted unless the Purchaser has expressly agreed to their validity in the individual case in writing. In particular, the mere reference to a letter from the Supplier containing or referring to its terms and conditions of delivery does not constitute acceptance by the Purchaser of the validity of those terms and conditions of delivery. These General Terms and Conditions of Purchase shall also apply if the Purchaser accepts deliveries / services without reservation or makes payments in full knowledge of the Supplier's terms and conditions to the contrary or deviating from these Terms and Conditions of Purchase or statutory provisions.
1.2 Other agreements, modifications and ancillary agreements shall only be valid if the purchaser agrees to them in writing.


2. Offer - Offer documents

2.2 If the Supplier submits an offer and cost estimates, these shall be made free of charge and shall not constitute any obligation on the part of the Purchaser. Cost estimates will only be reimbursed by written agreement.
2.3 Without prejudice to other rights, the Purchaser may withdraw from the contract or terminate the contractual relationship without notice in the case of a permanent obligation or in the case of a request for insolvency proceedings against the assets of the Supplier or if the Supplier fails to fulfil essential obligations without justifying reason and the Supplier has not yet or not fully fulfilled the contract or in the case of permanent obligations.


3. Prices - Terms of payment

3.1 Conditions for the due date of the Supplier's claims are that the Purchaser has verifiable and formally correct tax documents available. 3.2 The agreed prices are net prices plus any statutory VAT, including packaging, insurance, transport, freight and storage costs. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the price includes delivery DAP (Incoterms 2020), including packaging. The return of the packaging requires a special agreement.
3.3 Unless otherwise agreed, payments shall be made net within 30 days after receipt of the delivery.

3.5 The purchaser is entitled to the statutory rights of retention and set-off without restriction.


4. Delivery time

4.1 The delivery time stated in the order is binding.
4.2 Timely and complete delivery also includes the agreed delivery of data sheets and instructions for use.
4.3 As soon as the Supplier becomes aware that it will be unable to perform its contractual obligations in full or in part on time, regardless of the reasons for the delay, the Supplier shall immediately notify it in writing, stating the reasons and the expected duration of the delay. The purchaser is entitled to assert all rights resulting from the culpable non-notification against the supplier. The unconditional acceptance of a late (partial) delivery / (partial) performance does not constitute a waiver of rights by the purchaser with regard to the late (partial) delivery / (partial) performance.
4.4 In the event of delay in delivery, we are entitled to legal claims. In particular, the purchaser is entitled to demand compensation instead of performance and withdrawal after an unsuccessful expiry of a reasonable period. If the Purchaser claims damages, the Supplier shall have the right to prove to the Purchaser that he is not responsible for the breach of duty.

6.1 The legal obligation of the purchaser to inspect incoming goods shall be limited to immediately investigating the quantity, type, externally recognizable defects such as transport damage and other obvious defects. The purchaser is obliged to notify the supplier of open and hidden defects immediately, but not before expiry of 5 working days (Mon - Fri) after delivery or discovery.
6.2 We are entitled to the statutory claims for defects in full; in any case, we are entitled to demand from the supplier, at our option, rectification of defects or delivery of a new item. The right to compensation, in particular the right to compensation instead of performance, is expressly reserved.
6.3 We shall be entitled to rectify the defect ourselves at the expense of the Supplier if there is a risk of delay or special urgency.
6.4 The statutory and/or contractually agreed claims and rights in the case of material and legal defects shall expire in accordance with the statutory provisions. Except in the cases of suspension of the limitation period provided for by law, the limitation period for claims and rights in the case of defects shall also be suspended during the period between notification of the defect and rectification of the defect. The limitation period begins again for wholly or partly newly delivered, replaced or improved supplies or services.


7. Product liability, exemption, liability insurance cover

7.1 Insofar as the Supplier is responsible for a product damage, the Supplier shall be obliged to indemnify the Purchaser against claims for damages by third parties on first demand, insofar as the cause is established within its sphere of control and organisation and the Purchaser is itself liable in the external relationship.
7.2 Within the scope of its liability for damage as defined in point 7. 1 the Supplier shall also be obliged to reimburse any expenses pursuant to §§ 683, 670 BGB or §§ 830, 840, 426 BGB which result from or in connection with a recall action carried out by the Customer. As far as possible and reasonable, the Purchaser shall inform the Supplier of the content and extent of the recall measures to be carried out and shall give him the opportunity to comment. Other legal claims remain unaffected.
7.3 The Supplier must maintain a liability insurance cover with industry-standard conditions, a minimum amount of cover of EUR 2 million per damage event, for the duration of the contractual relationship including warranty and limitation period. The supplier must prove this to the purchaser upon request; smaller amounts of cover must be agreed with the purchaser in individual cases.


8. Retention of title

Insofar as a reservation of title is agreed in favour of the supplier, the supplier first has the effect of a simple reservation of title. In particular, the customer is entitled to process the delivery at any time.


9. Secrecy

The Supplier is obliged to keep all received illustrations, drawings, calculations and other documents and information strictly confidential. They may only be disclosed to third parties with our express consent. The obligation of secrecy shall also apply after the execution of this contract; it shall lapse if and insofar as the manufacturing knowledge contained in the provided illustrations, drawings, calculations and other documents has become generally known.


10. Final provisions

10.1 The Supplier may only refer to the existing business relationship with the Customer with the prior written consent of the Customer.
10.2 The ineffectiveness or unenforceability of a provision or parts of a provision of the contract shall have no effect on the existence and duration of the respective contract.
10.3 Place of jurisdiction is the registered office of the Purchaser or – at the Purchaser’s option – the general place of jurisdiction of the Supplier.
10.4 The relations between the Customer and the Supplier shall be governed exclusively by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Sales Law/CISG and the German conflict of laws rules. Customary terms are to be interpreted in accordance with the Incoterms 2020.
