Terms of Business (AGBs)

1. Validity

 

Our offers, deliveries and services, both at home and abroad, are handled exclusively according to our terms and conditions below, as amended at the latest date. They are considered as recognised upon the receipt of our order confirmation or our invoice. Deviating or supplementary terms of business are only valid after our approval inwriting. This is also the case, if we, in awareness of this, affect our deliveries and services.

 

2. Terms of Payment

 

Our prices are net prices, plus the applicable statutory sales tax, plus accruing customs duty. For a net order value of up to €50.00, we will surcharge for quantities below minimum of €5.00. Payments with a discharging effect can only be made in gross directly to us. Without further individual agreement in writing, we allow a discount of:

 

3% for payments within 10 days after date of invoice. In the case of later payments, the invoice amount is payable without any deduction. Cheques and bills accepted by us are considered as payments only after they have been cashed by us. Bills are only accepted within 10 days after the date of invoice. In case of cash on delivery (C.O.D.) or payment by bill, there is no deduction of a cashdiscount. A set-off on the part of the purchaser is only admissible with undisputed or legally recognised claims. The assertion of the right of retention is only possible with our consent. According to §367 of the German Civil Code, all payments are first set-off against costs and interests, then against the principal claim.
