  2. Orders shall only become binding upon our order confirmation.
  3. The information and illustrations contained in brochures and catalogues are approximate values customary in the industry, unless they have been expressly designated as binding by us.

  1. Unlimited contracts can be terminated with a notice period of 6 months.
  2.  in the case of long-term contracts (contracts with a term of more than 12 months and open-ended contracts), if there is a substantial change in wage, material or energy costs, each contracting party shall be entitled to demand an appropriate adjustment of the price taking these factors into account.
  3. If a binding order quantity has not been agreed, we shall base our calculation on the non-binding order quantity (target quantity) expected by the partner for a specific period. If the partner purchases less than the target quantity, we shall be entitled to increase the unit price accordingly.

    If the partner accepts more than the target quantity, we shall reduce the unit price accordingly, provided that the partner has announced the additional requirement at least 2 – 3 months prior to delivery.

  4. in the case of delivery contracts n on call, unless otherwise agreed, binding quantities must be notified to us by call-off at least 2 months before the delivery date.

    Additional costs caused by a delayed call or subsequent changes to the call-off with regard to time and quantity by our partner shall be borne by him; our calculation shall be decisive in this respect.


  1. Each contractual partner shall only use all documents (including samples, models and data) and knowledge received from the business relationship for the jointly pursued purposes and shall keep them secret from third parties with the same care as its own documents and knowledge if the other contractual partner describes them as confidential or has an obvious interest in keeping them secret.

    This obligation begins with the first receipt of the documents or knowledge and ends 36 months after the end of the business relationship.


    The obligation shall not apply to documents and knowledge which are generally known or which were already known to the contracting party upon receipt without the contracting party being obliged to maintain secrecy or which are subsequently transmitted by a third party authorised to pass them on or which are developed by the receiving contracting party without exploitation of documents or knowledge of the other contracting party which are to be kept secret.

Drawings and descriptions

  1. If one contractual partner makes available to the other drawings or technical documents relating to the goods to be delivered or their manufacture, these shall remain the property of the submitting contractual partner.

Samples and production equipment

  1. he production costs for samples and means of production (tools, moulds, templates, etc.) shall be invoiced separately from the goods to be delivered, unless otherwise agreed. This also applies to production equipment which must be replaced as a result of wear and tear.
  2. The costs for maintenance and proper storage as well as the risk of damage or destruction shall be borne by us.
  3. If the partner suspends or terminates the cooperation during the production period of the samples or means of production, all production costs incurred up to that point shall be borne by him.

  4.  The means of production shall remain in our possession at least until completion of the delivery contract, even if the partner has paid for them. Thereafter, the partner is entitled to demand the return of the means of production if an amicable agreement has been reached on the date of return and the partner has fulfilled his contractual obligations in full.
  5.  We shall keep the means of production free of charge for three years after the last delivery to our partner. Thereafter, we shall request our partner in writing to comment on further use within 6 weeks. Our obligation to hold the goods in safe custody ends if no statement is made within these 6 weeks or no new order is placed.

Otherwise, the partner may only offset counterclaims which have been legally established or are undisputed.
  3.  In the event of overdue payment, we shall be entitled to charge interest on arrears at the rate charged to us by the bank for current account credits, but at least 8 percentage points above the respective base interest rate of the European Central Bank.
  4.  In the event of default in payment, we may suspend performance of our obligations until payment has been received following written notification to the partner.
  5.  Bills of exchange and cheques shall only be accepted after agreement and only on account of performance and subject to their discountability. Discount charges will be charged from the due date of the invoice amount. A guarantee for the timely presentation of the bill of exchange and cheque and for the collection of bill protest is excluded.
  6.  If it becomes apparent after conclusion of the contract that our payment claim is at risk due to the partner’s lack of ability to pay, we may refuse performance and set the partner a reasonable deadline within which he must pay concurrently with delivery or provide security. If the partner refuses or the deadline expires without success, we shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract and claim damages.


  7. Unless otherwise agreed, we deliver “ex works”. Decisive for compliance with the delivery date or the delivery period is the notification of readiness for dispatch or collection by us.
  8.  The delivery period shall commence with the dispatch of our order confirmation and shall be extended accordingly if the requirements of Clause 55 are met.
  9.  partial deliveries are permissible to a reasonable extent. They shall be invoiced separately.
  10.  Within a tolerance of 7 per cent of the total order quantity, production-related excess or short deliveries are excluded.

    Shipping and transfer of risk

  11. Goods declared ready for dispatch must be accepted by the partner without delay. Otherwise we shall be entitled to dispatch them at our discretion or to store them at the partner’s expense and risk.

     33 If the delivery is delayed due to a circumstance listed in Clause 55 or due to any action or omission on the part of the partner, the delivery period shall be extended by a reasonable amount in accordance with the circumstances.

     34 The partner is only entitled to withdraw from the contract if we are responsible for non-compliance with the delivery date and he has unsuccessfully set us a reasonable grace period.

Retention of title

We retain title to the delivered goods until all claims arising from the business relationship with the partner have been satisfied.

The partner is entitled to sell these goods in the ordinary course of business as long as he fulfils his obligations arising from the business relationship with us in good time. However, he may neither pledge the reserved goods nor assign them by way of security. He is obliged to secure our rights in the event of credited resale of the reserved goods.

37 In the event of breaches of duty by the partner, in particular default in payment, we shall be entitled to rescind the contract and take back the goods after the unsuccessful expiry of a reasonable deadline set for the partner; the statutory provisions on the dispensability of setting a deadline shall remain unaffected. The partner is obliged to surrender the goods.

We shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract if an application is made to open insolvency proceedings against the assets of the partner.

38) All claims and rights arising from the sale or rental of goods to which the partner is entitled and to which we are entitled shall be assigned by the partner to us as security. We hereby accept the assignment.

39 The partner shall always carry out any treatment or processing of the reserved goods on our behalf. If the reserved goods are processed or inseparably mixed with other objects not belonging to us, we shall acquire co-ownership of the new object in the ratio of the invoice value of the reserved goods to the other processed or mixed objects at the time of processing or mixing.

If our goods are combined or inseparably mixed with other movable objects to form a uniform object and if the other object is to be regarded as the main object, the partner shall transfer proportionate co-ownership to us to the extent that the main object belongs to him. In all other respects, the same shall apply to the object created by processing or combining or mixing as to the reserved goods.

The partner must inform us immediately of any enforcement measures taken by third parties against the reserved goods, the claims assigned to us and other securities, handing over the documents necessary for an intervention. This shall also apply to impairment of any other kind.

If the value of the existing securities exceeds the secured claims by more than 20 percent in total, we shall be obliged to release securities of our choice at the request of the partner.

material defects

The quality of the goods shall be governed exclusively by the agreed technical delivery specifications. If we have to deliver according to drawings, specifications, samples, etc. of our partner, the latter shall assume the risk of suitability for the intended purpose. The decisive factor for the contractual condition of the goods shall be the time of transfer of risk in accordance with Clause 31.43. We shall not be liable for material defects caused by unsuitable or improper use, faulty assembly or commissioning by the partner or third parties, normal wear and tear, faulty or negligent handling, nor for the consequences of improper modifications or repair work carried out by the partner or third parties without our consent. The same applies to defects which only insignificantly reduce the value or suitability of the goods.

44 Claims for material defects shall become statute-barred after 12 months. This shall not apply if the law prescribes mandatory longer periods, in particular for defects in a building and for goods which have been used for a building in accordance with their normal use and which have caused its defectiveness.

45. if acceptance of the goods or an initial sample inspection has been agreed, notification of defects which the partner would have been able to ascertain by careful acceptance or initial sample inspection shall be excluded.

46 We shall be given the opportunity to determine the defect complained of. Goods complained of shall be returned to us immediately upon request; we shall bear the transport costs if the notice of defect is justified. If the partner does not fulfil these obligations or makes changes to the goods already complained about without our consent, he loses any claims for material defects.

47 In the event of a justified, timely notice of defect, we shall, at our discretion, repair the goods complained of or supply a faultless replacement.

If we do not fulfil these obligations or do not fulfil them in accordance with the contract within a reasonable time, the partner may set us a final deadline in writing within which we must fulfil our obligations. If this period expires without success, the partner may demand a price reduction, withdraw from the contract or carry out the necessary repair itself or have it carried out by a third party at our expense and risk. A reimbursement of costs is excluded if the expenses increase because the goods have been moved to another location after our delivery, unless this corresponds to the intended use of the goods.

The partner’s statutory rights of recourse against us shall only exist insofar as the partner has not reached any agreements with his customer which go beyond the statutory claims based on defects. Furthermore, Clause 48, last sentence, shall apply mutatis mutandis to the scope of the rights of recourse.

Other claims, liability

Insofar as nothing to the contrary results from the following, other and further claims of the partner against us are excluded. This applies in particular to claims for damages due to breach of duties arising from the contractual obligation and tort. We are therefore not liable for damages which have not occurred to the delivered goods themselves. Above all, we shall not be liable for loss of profit or other financial loss of the partner.51 The above limitations of liability shall not apply in the event of intent, gross negligence on the part of our legal representatives or executive employees or in the event of culpable breach of material contractual obligations. In the event of culpable breach of essential contractual obligations, we shall be liable – except in cases of intent or gross negligence on the part of our legal representatives or executive employees – only for reasonably foreseeable damage typical of the contract.

52 Furthermore, the limitation of liability shall not apply in cases in which liability is assumed under the Product Liability Act for personal injury or property damage to privately used objects in the event of defects in the delivered goods. It shall also not apply in the event of injury to life, body or health and in the absence of warranted characteristics, if and insofar as the purpose of the warranty was to protect the partner against damage which did not occur to the delivered goods themselves.

53 Insofar as our liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of our employees, workers, staff, legal representatives and vicarious agents.

54 The statutory regulations on the burden of proof shall remain unaffected.

Force majeure

Force majeure, labour disputes, unrest, official measures, failure to deliver by our suppliers and other unforeseeable, unavoidable and serious events shall release the contracting parties from their performance obligations for the duration of the disruption and to the extent of its effect. This shall also apply if these events occur at a time when the affected contractual partner is in default, unless he has caused the default intentionally or through gross negligence. The contracting parties shall be obliged to provide the necessary information without undue delay and to adjust their obligations to the changed circumstances in good faith.
Place of performance, place of jurisdiction and applicable law
Unless otherwise stated in the order confirmation, our place of business shall be the place of performance.57 Our place of business shall be the place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes, including those relating to a bill of exchange or cheque process. We are also entitled to sue at the partner’s place of business.

58 The law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply exclusively to the contractual relationship. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods of 11 April 1980 (CISG – “Vienna Sales Convention”) is excluded.

6. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Ltd. ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offering by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and internet usage. In this case, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address submitted by the user's browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users may also prevent data collection by Google of data which is generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. For more information about Google's use of data, settings and opt-out options, please visit Google's websites: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners ("Google's use of your data when you use websites or our partners' apps "), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (" Use of data for promotional purposes "), http://www.google.com/settings/ads (" Managing information provided by Google used to show you ads ") and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences (" Determine which ads Google shows you ").

7. Google Re-/Marketing Services

We use the Google Ireland Ltd. Marketing and Remarketing Services ("Google Marketing Services"), Gordon House, 4 Barrow St,Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland, ("Google"). Google Marketing Services allows us to better target advertisements for and on our website so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. E.g.: It is called remarketing if users are also shown ads for products they are interested in on other websites. For these purposes, when Google and our other websites that are running Google Marketing Services are activated, Google runs a code and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, etc., also named web beacon) are added and incorporated into the website. With their help, the user is provided with an individual cookie, viz. a small file is saved (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). The cookies can be set by different domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. In this file it is noted which web pages users visited, what content they are interested in and what offers they have clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information about the use of the online offer. The IP address of the users is also recorded, whereby in the context of Google Analytics the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases data is transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address will not be merged with data of the user within other offers from Google. The information mentioned above may also be associated with information from other sources. So that ads according to the interests of the users can be displayed when they visit other websites. The data of the users are pseudonymised processed in the context of the Google marketing services. That means Google stores and processes e.g. not the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. From the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identifiable person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if users have explicitly allowed Google to process their data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users by "DoubleClick" is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States. Among the Google marketing services we use is amongst others the online advertising program "Google AdWords". In the case of Google AdWords, each advertiser receives a different "conversion cookie". Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. We embed third-party ads based on Google's DoubleClick marketing service. DoubleClick uses cookies, which allow Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on users' visits to this site or other sites on the Internet. We also engage third-party ads based on the Google AdSense marketing service. AdSense uses cookies, which allow Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on users' visits to this site or other sites on the Internet. Another Google marketing service we use is the Google Tag Manager, which allows additional Google analytics and marketing services to be integrated into our website (e.g. AdWords, DoubleClick, or Google Analytics). For more information about Google's data usage for marketing, see their overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google's Privacy Policy is available at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy. If you wish to opt-out of Google Marketing Services, you may take advantage of Google's settings and opt-out options: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

8. Facebook social plugins

Our online offering uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue tile, the terms "Like" or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When a user invokes a feature of this online offering that includes such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the device of the user and incorporated into the online offer. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the users according to our knowledge. By integrating plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, press the Like button or leave a comment, the information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the related rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook's privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook and delete his cookies before using our online offer. Other settings and possible revocations regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US-American site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, which means that they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

9. Facebook remarketing

Within our on-line offer so-called "Facebook pixels" of the social network Facebook, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able to designate the visitors of our offer as a target group for the presentation of advertisements, so-called "Facebook Ads". Accordingly, we use Facebook pixel to display Facebook ads only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our website. In other words, with the help of the Facebook pixel, we want to make sure that our Facebook ads are in line with the potential interest of users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also understand the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing if users were redirected to our site after clicking on a Facebook ad. Facebook pixel is directly integrated by Facebook when calling our website and can save a so-called cookie (a small file) on your device. If you log in to Facebook or visit Facebook in a logged-in state, the visit of our offer is noted in your profile. The data collected about you are anonymous to us, so they do not give us any indications about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible. The processing of the data by Facebook is part of Facebook's data usage policy. Accordingly, you will learn more about how the remarketing pixel works and more generally about how Facebook ads are displayed in Facebook's Data Usage Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. You may object to the data collection and use of your data by Facebook Pixel to display Facebook Ads. To do this, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the usage-based advertising settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or the contradiction on the US-American site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, that means they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

10. Newsletter

With the following information, we will explain the contents of our newsletter, the registration, sending and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described. Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of a newsletter are concretely described, they are authoritative for the consent of the users. In general our newsletters contain the following information: our products, offers, promotions and our company. Double opt-in and logging: Registration for our newsletter is done in a so-called double-opt-in procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with an invalid or not owned e-mail addresses. The registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored by the newsletter service provider will be logged. Newsletter service provider: The newsletter is sent by means of "" (hereinafter referred to as "newsletter service provider"). The privacy policy of the newsletter service provider can be found here: . The e-mail addresses of our Newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of the newsletter service provider. The newsletter service provider uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, the newsletter service provider may, according to their information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the sending and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the newsletter service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them for their purposes or to pass these contacts on to third parties. Credentials: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. Statistical Survey and Analysis - The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of the newsletter service provider when the newsletter is opened. This request will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavor nor that of the newsletter service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content accordingly or to send different content according to the interests of our users. Termination / Revocation - You may terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, that means revoking your consent. At the same time, your consent for receiving any emails from the newsletter service provider and the statistical analyzes expire. A separate revocation of receiving emails from the newsletter service provider or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.

11. Integration of services and content of third parties

It may occur that contents or services of third-party providers, such as maps or fonts from other websites, are included in our online offer. The inclusion of content from third-party providers always requires that third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to the users' browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Furthermore, providers of third-party content can set their own cookies and process users' data for their own purposes.
