Terms of Service

1. General

We only deliver in accordance with our general terms and conditions below, even if reference is no longer expressly made later in ongoing business relationships. Deviations from our general terms and conditions, in particular deviating terms and conditions of our customers, require our express written approval. Orders and assignments must generally be made in writing, since verbal agreements cannot guarantee that the orders will be processed properly.

2. Offer and prices

Our offer is revocable until acceptance. In commercial business transactions, our prices are understood to be plus the applicable sales tax, in addition, unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, in business transactions excluding packaging, postage, freight and transport insurance. We are entitled to have orders placed with us carried out by third parties.

3. Payment terms

Our invoices are to be paid within 10 days without any discount. If our customer is a merchant and his order is part of the operation of his trade, he is in default even without a reminder; he will be charged interest on arrears of 3% per month. They are to be set higher if we can prove a burden with a higher interest rate. Complaints etc. do not release the customer from the obligation to comply with the above payment terms. The customer is not entitled to set off counterclaims against our claims, unless these have been expressly recognized by us or have been legally established. The same applies to the assertion of a right of retention in commercial transactions.

4. Retention of title

In commercial transactions, delivered goods that are our property remain our property until all of our claims, regardless of the legal reason, have been met in full. If the customer is in default of payment of our claims against him, we are entitled at our discretion to withhold the delivery parts from current and future deliveries until the outstanding claims have been settled. This does not result in any claims by the customer against us due to any delay in delivery to third parties. The right of lien only applies to other claims from the business relationship if these are undisputed or have been legally established.

5. Shipping

Loading and shipping are always carried out uninsured at the customer's expense and risk, even if carriage paid delivery has been agreed. We insure the cargo at the customer's expense if the customer so desires.

6. Delivery time

Binding delivery periods or delivery dates must be expressly agreed and confirmed by us in writing. Unless otherwise agreed, the agreed or confirmed delivery dates or deadlines indicate the shipping date. Force majeure, lack of raw materials, traffic and operational disruptions, strikes and other circumstances for which we are not responsible release us from compliance with any delivery deadline and entitle us to withdraw from the contract if the fulfillment of the delivery obligation becomes unreasonable for us. If we do not withdraw, a firmly agreed delivery time will be extended appropriately. Part deliveries are permitted.

7. Warranty

The customer is obliged to accept the work as soon as it has been notified of its completion. The warranty period is 12 months, the start of the limitation period is determined by law. The customer must report any defects immediately. If the work carried out proves not to be in accordance with the contract, we are obliged to remove it at our expense. This does not apply if the defect is insignificant for the interests of the customer or is based on a circumstance that can be attributed to him. If there is an insignificant defect, the customer cannot refuse acceptance if we expressly acknowledge our obligation to remedy the defect. If the acceptance is delayed through no fault of ours, the acceptance shall be deemed to have taken place two weeks after notification of the completion of the work. If we let a grace period set to us for the elimination of defects expire fruitlessly through our fault, the customer has a right to a reduction in price. The right to reduce the price also exists in other cases of failure to remedy the defect. Only if the work is demonstrably of no interest to the customer despite the reduction in price, the customer can cancel the contract after giving notice. No guarantee is given for certain properties, in particular that the technical process is suitable for the purposes of the customer. We also do not assume any guarantee for any properties for the basic material provided by the customer, insofar as properties of the basic material provided by the customer can lead to a loss of quality or durability; for example due to corrosion, scale layers, primers, lack of temperature resistance, unbroken cut and laser edges, unsuitable zinc or anodized layers, unsuitable cast parts, dirt, scratches, dents, water influences or paint incompatibilities as well as overcoating of any kind. A guarantee for the adhesion of the coating on galvanized and scaled surfaces as well as laser edges are only done after prior sandblasting. The principal must check and guarantee that the base material can be coated in principle. In case of doubt, a sample is required. Quality assurance regulations and guidelines of the customer are only binding for us if we have confirmed this in writing. The customer's right to assert the defect expires six months from the time of acceptance. After six months from acceptance, all warranty claims expire. The period for liability for defects is extended by the duration of the repair work.

8. Liability

Claims for damages by the customer from the contract, impossibility of performance, due to non-fulfillment, from positive breach of contract, negligence when concluding the contract and from tort are also excluded with regard to consequential damage, unless intent, gross negligence or the breach of essential contractual obligations can be proven to us. Liability for contract-untypical and therefore practically unforeseeable damage is excluded. Unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing, we are not obliged to check customer information for correctness or to examine the basic material for its suitability. If we nevertheless provide information, it is non-binding to the best of our knowledge and our liability is limited to willful intent and gross negligence. For claims for damages, our liability is limited to the coating value of the defective items. Our liability for claims under the Product Liability Act and for warranted properties remains unaffected. Particularly valuable parts that exceed 3 times the coating value or cannot be replaced or procured again will only be accepted at the customer's risk. The order for particularly valuable or irreplaceable parts must be communicated in writing by the customer before the order is accepted.

9. Place of fulfillment, place of jurisdiction

The place of performance for both parties to the contract is Ludwigsburg. Insofar as our customers are registered traders within the meaning of the German Commercial Code, legal entities under public law or special funds under public law, Ludwigsburg is agreed as the place of jurisdiction. However, we are also entitled to assert claims at any other place of jurisdiction. German law applies exclusively to all contractual relationships.

10. Written form, ineffectiveness clause

No further agreements have been made and no verbal commitments have been made. Should individual parts of these delivery and payment conditions be ineffective or be replaced by individual contractual agreements, this shall not affect the effectiveness of the remaining provisions.
