General Conditions of Sale
The general conditions apply to all our products and services, contracts, agreements, delivery, etc., unless explicitly specified otherwise.
1. Our offers are issued in written form and are not binding. Sketches and other additional documentation shall remain our property and cannot be forwarded to any third parties.
2. Customer orders shall be considered as 'received', after an order confirmation is issued in written form. An order confirmation is binding for us and the customer, and has the nature of a sales contract. If the customer does not issue any objections within 8 days of receiving the order confirmation, they shall be considered as having agreed to the conditions, specified in the confirmation. Supplements and amendments shall only be applicable after our written confirmation.
3. Price and payment
3.1. The prices are valid EXW Batuje (Incoterms 2000), unless specified otherwise.
3.2. Payments shall be considered to have been effected when the funds are remitted to our account. In the event of late payment, we are entitled to charge statutory back interest, which shall be due for payment immediately.
3.3. Delivered goods remain in our property until customer obligations are fully met. The customer is obliged to handle goods that are still our property with due care and to clearly mark them as our property. In the event of a resale, the buyer is obliged to forward the ownership rights.
4.1. The delivery period specified in the order confirmation is subject to proper and punctual deliveries by our suppliers. In the event of unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, the delivery period is subject to reasonable adjustment.

4.6. In the event of a delay in the acceptance of goods by the customer, we shall store the goods at the customer's expense. Should the customer refuse to accept the goods, they shall be obliged to settle the costs incurred by us (decrease in goods value, underselling, financial costs, warehousing costs, etc.).
4.7. In the event of unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to withdraw from the contract. In such a case, the customer shall be notified in a timely manner and shall have no right to a compensation.
