§ 10 Transport damages
(1) If goods are delivered with obvious damage in transit, please query the defect immediately with the carrier and please contact us as soon as possible.
(2) The failure to file a complaint or make contact with us has no consequences for your legal warranty rights. However, they help us assert our own claims against the carrier or transport insurance.
§ 11 Warranty
(1) Unless specifically agreed upon otherwise, your warranty claims are based on the provision of law of the Sales Convention (§§ 433 ff. BGB).
(2) If you are a consumer in accordance with § 13 BGB (German Civil Code), the limitation period for warranty claims for used goods deviates from the provision of law - one year. This limitation does not apply to claims based on damages resulting from injury to life, body and health or from the violation of a basic contractual obligation, whose fulfilment enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place and on whose compliance the contractual partner can regularly rely (cardinal duty) as well as for claims based on other damages due to deliberate or grossly negligent breach of duty by the user or her/his vicarious agents.
(3) In all other cases, the provisions of law apply to the warranty.
(4) If you are a business partner in accordance with § 14 BGB, the provisions of law with the following modifications apply:
- For the nature of the product, only our own information and the product description by the manufacturer are binding, but not public opinion and statements and other advertising from the manufacturer.
- You are obliged to immediately inspect the goods with due care for quality and quantity defects and to notify us of obvious defects within 7 days of receiving of the goods. To keep this term punctual shipping is sufficient. This also applies to the later discovery of hidden defects. In the event of a breach of the obligation to examine and to give notice of defects, the enforcement of the warranty claim is ruled out.
- In the case of defects, we provide warranty at our discretion through repair or replacement (supplementary performance). In case of repair, we do not have to bear the increased costs incurred by the shipment of the goods to a place other than the place of delivery, provided that the shipment does not comply with the intended use of the goods.
- If the supplementary performance fails twice, you can demand a reduction or withdraw from the contract at your discretion.
- The warranty period is one year from date of delivery.
§ 12 Liability
(1) Unlimited liability: We are fully liable for deliberate action and gross negligence as well as in accordance with the Product Liability Act. For slight negligence we are liable for damages resulting from injury to life, body and health of persons.
(2) In all other cases, the following limited liability applies: In case of slight negligence, we shall only be liable in the event of a breach of a contractual obligation, whose fulfilment makes the proper execution of the contract possible in the first place and on whose compliance you can regularly rely (cardinal obligation The liability for slight negligence is limited in amount to the damage foreseeable at the time of formation of the contract, the occurrence of which is typically to be expected. This limitation of liability also applies in favour of our assistants.
