7. retention of title
The goods remain our property until full payment has been made. For customers domiciled in Switzerland, we are entitled to make a corresponding entry in the retention of title register.
For entrepreneurs, the following shall apply in addition: We shall retain title to the goods until all claims arising from an ongoing business relationship have been settled in full. You may resell the goods subject to retention of title in the ordinary course of business; you assign to us in advance all claims arising from this resale - irrespective of any combination or mixing of the goods subject to retention of title with a new item - in the amount of the invoice amount, and we accept this assignment. You remain authorised to collect the claims, but we may also collect claims ourselves insofar as you do not meet your payment obligations. We shall release the securities to which we are entitled at your request insofar as the realisable value of the securities exceeds the value of the outstanding claims by more than 10 %.
8. Transport damages
The following applies to consumers: If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, please complain about such defects to the delivery company as soon as possible and contact us immediately. Failure to make a complaint or contact us has no consequences for your legal claims and their enforcement, in particular your warranty rights. However, they help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.
For entrepreneurs, the following applies: The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration shall pass to you as soon as we have delivered the item to the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment.
9. Warranty and guarantees
9.1 Liability for defects
The following applies to consumers domiciled in Germany and Austria:
The statutory law on liability for defects applies.
The following applies to consumers domiciled in Switzerland:
They shall, as soon as is practicable in the ordinary course of business, inspect the quality of the item received and, if defects arise for which the seller is liable, notify the seller immediately. If the consumer fails to do so, the purchased goods shall be deemed to have been accepted, unless they have defects which were not recognisable during the usual inspection. If such defects are discovered later, the notification must be made immediately after discovery, otherwise the item is deemed to have been approved also with regard to these defects.
Send the defective product back to us with a description of the defect. You shall bear the transport costs incurred. We provide warranty by rectifying defects. This is done, at our discretion, either by rectifying the defect (subsequent improvement) or by delivering a defect-free item (replacement delivery). If the subsequent performance fails, you are entitled to withdraw from the contract. This does not apply in the case of insignificant defects. A right to a price reduction is excluded.
The following shall apply vis-à-vis entrepreneurs and merchants:
Unless expressly agreed otherwise below, the statutory law on liability for defects shall apply.
The following limitations and reductions in time do not apply to claims based on damage caused by us, our legal representatives or vicarious agents
- in the event of injury to life, limb or health
- in case of intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty as well as fraudulent intent
- in the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract and on the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely (cardinal obligations)
- within the scope of a guarantee promise, if agreed, or
- insofar as the scope of application of the Product Liability Act is opened.
Restrictions vis-à-vis entrepreneurs
For entrepreneurs, only our own specifications and the manufacturer's product descriptions included in the contract shall be deemed to be an agreement on the quality of the goods; we shall not assume any liability for the manufacturer's public statements or other advertising statements. For entrepreneurs, the limitation period for claims for defects in newly manufactured goods is one year from the transfer of risk. The previous sentence shall not apply to an item which has been used for a building in accordance with its customary manner of use and has caused its defectiveness. The sale of used goods is made to the exclusion of any warranty. The statutory limitation periods for the right of recourse according to § 445a BGB remain unaffected.
Regulations vis-à-vis merchants
Among merchants, the obligation to examine and give notice of defects regulated in § 377 HGB (German Commercial Code) shall apply. If you fail to give notice as regulated therein, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved, unless the defect was not recognisable during the inspection. This does not apply if we have fraudulently concealed a defect.
9.2 Guarantees and customer service
Information on any additional warranties that may apply and their exact conditions can be found with the product and on special information pages in the online shop.
Customer service: You can reach our customer service for questions, complaints and objections Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the telephone number +49(0) 6105-406794 and by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org., email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For claims based on damage caused by us, our legal representatives or vicarious agents, we shall always be liable without limitation
- in the event of injury to life, limb or health,
- in the event of intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty,
- in the case of warranty promises, insofar as agreed, or
- insofar as the scope of application of the Product Liability Act is opened.
In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for the proper performance of the contract and on the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely (cardinal obligations) due to slight negligence on our part, on the part of our legal representatives or vicarious agents, the amount of liability shall be limited to the damage foreseeable at the time of the conclusion of the contract, the occurrence of which must typically be expected.
Otherwise, claims for damages are excluded.
11. Code of Conduct
We have submitted to the following codes of conduct:
12. Dispute resolution
The European Commission provides an online dispute resolution (ODR) platform which can be found here. Consumers have the possibility to use this platform for the resolution of their disputes.
To resolve disputes arising from a contractual relationship with a consumer or whether such a contractual relationship exists at all, we are obliged to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration board. The competent body is the Universal Arbitration Board of the Federation at the Zentrum für Schlichtung e.V., Straßburger Straße 8, 77694 Kehl am Rhein, www.verbraucher-schlichter.de. We will participate in a dispute resolution procedure before this body.
13. Final provisions
If you are an entrepreneur, German law shall apply to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
If you are a merchant within the meaning of the German Commercial Code, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from contractual relationships between us and you is our registered office.
