2.2 All orders become only effective after receipt of our written order confirmation. Agreements and commitments of all kinds, including declarations of our employees, are only legally binding if confirmed in writing. In the case of contracts, the fulfillment of which is carried out in several deliveries, each delivery shall be regarded as a separate transaction.
3. Prices and payment

4.2 The Seller shall have the right to demand advance payments from the Buyer, the provision of appropriate security within a reasonable period of time or delivery after payment if, after conclusion of the contract, he becomes aware of facts concerning a material deterioration of the Buyer’s assets, which are suited to jeopardize his claim to the consideration. If the Buyer fails to comply with the legitimate demand of the seller or fails to comply with them in due time, the Seller can withdraw from the contract.
5.1 Partial deliveries are permitted.
5.2 We endeavor to comply with specified delivery periods. An agreed delivery period begins with sending the order confirmation, but not before the Buyer has carried out his obligatory cooperation activities and has paid an agreed down payment. The delivery period shall be deemed to be met if we have shipped the goods by the end of the period or have given notice that the goods are ready for dispatch.
5.3 Delays in delivery and performance due to force majeure and because of events which make the delivery considerably more difficult or impossible for the Seller - this includes subsequent material procurement difficulties, operational disturbances, strikes, lockout, personal deficiencies, lack of transportation, official orders etc. - even if occurred at suppliers of the Seller or their sub-suppliers, the Seller is also not responsible for bindingly agreed deadlines and due days. They entitle the Seller to delay the delivery or service by the duration of the hindrance plus a reasonable start-up time or to withdraw from the contract in full or in part in respect to the part, which has not yet been fulfilled.
5.4 If the hindrance lasts longer than 2 months, the Buyer is entitled after a reasonable grace period to withdraw from the contract with regard to the part which has not yet been fulfilled.
5.5 If the Seller is responsible for the non-observance of agreed terms and due days, the Buyer shall be entitled to a default payment of 1.5% for each completed week of the delay. In total, however, such default payment is limited up to a maximum of 5% of the invoice value of the goods and services affected by the delay. Any further claims are excluded, unless the delay is caused at least on gross negligence of the Seller.

7.3 The Buyer shall notify us without undue delay of a seizure or other impairment of our property by third parties.

Warranty claims are excluded if the Buyer does not complain about apparent defects within 10 days after receipt of the goods at the destination and before resale/use of the goods and about concealed defects within 10 days after their discovery. Notices of defect shall only be considered if the Buyer grants us the opportunity to check if the complaints are justified; otherwise, the goods shall be considered as contractual fulfillment.
8.2 If any damage to the packaging and damages resulting therefrom are detected, the Buyer should in his own interest ask the carrier to certify such damage. The complained goods may only be returned to us with our express consent.
8.3 The Seller shall not be liable for changes made by telephone or otherwise.
8.4 In the event of defects, even in the absence of guaranteed properties, we shall at our discretion either provide replacement, grant price reduction or rectify the defect. If it is established that subsequent delivery or rectification has finally failed, the customer may demand redhibitory action or reduction of the price. No guarantee is given for damage caused by the fact that the object of delivery is altered by a third party or that the delivered items are put into operation in an incorrect manner. As far as legally permissible, further claims of the Buyer are excluded. This applies in particular to claims for compensation for damages which are not caused by the goods themselves.
9. Application Instructions
We give application instructions to the best of our knowledge based on our experience so far. All statements and information on the suitability and application of our goods do not exempt the Buyer from his own tests and investigations. They are non-binding and, in particular, do not constitute a guarantee of certain properties. The Buyer is responsible for observing legal and official regulations when using our goods. If, however, the Seller is liable for the application of technical information, the liability is limited to the value of the goods delivered by us.
Claims for damages resulting from the impossibility of performance, from positive breach of obligations, defaults when signing a contract and from tortious acts are excluded against the Seller as well as for his vicarious agents, unless based on willful or grossly negligent action. Without prejudice to the above agreements, we are only liable up to the value of the goods.
11. Place of Performance, Jurisdiction and Effectiveness Clause
11.1 Place of performance for the delivery is our warehouse in Hohenweststedt, for payment Düsseldorf.
11.2 Jurisdiction for all disputes, including actions on bad checks, is Düsseldorf if the Buyer is a registered merchant.
11.3 Should individual provisions of the contract or our terms and conditions of business or delivery be invalid in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining provisions or parts of such provisions of the contract or these conditions shall remain unaffected. The parties will replace ineffective parts with an effective regulation which is closest to the economic purpose.
11.4 The contractual relationship is subject to the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany.
