We hereby object to any terms and conditions of our contractual partners.
Any agreements to the contrary require our written confirmation.

Offers/ Conclusion of contrac

All our offers are subject to change.
Contractual agreements shall only become legally binding if they have been confirmed by us in writing or by our delivery.


Auch ohne ausdrückliche Vereinbarung sind wir zu Teillieferungen berechtigt.
Für den Fall eines von uns nicht zu vertretenden Umstandes, der eine Lieferung für uns unmöglich oder unzumutbar macht, verlängert sich die Lieferfrist um dessen Dauer.
Unsere Lieferungen FOB/ CIF/ DDP/ DDU / CPT/ FCA erfolgen nach den geltenden Incoterms, neueste Fassung.

We are entitled to demand goods subject to retention of title without setting a grace period and without prior withdrawal if the customer is in default with any of his obligations towards us.
The customer is only entitled to process the goods in the ordinary course of business. In the event of processing of the delivered goods by the buyer, we shall acquire ownership of the new item.


If the buyer fails to pay when due, he shall be in default without reminder.
If the customer is in default of payment, we shall be entitled to charge interest at a rate of 7% above the applicable rate of the ECB (Euribor).

Warranty, liability, technical advice, industrial property rights of third parties
