General terms and conditions

General terms and conditions of LiBreCo, Gelsenkirchen

Section 1 Scope of validity Only our sales terms apply. Terms of the purchaser which differ from our sales terms are invalid.

Section 2 Conclusion of the contract The order is a binding offer. At our discretion, we can accept the offer within two weeks by sending an order confirmation or by providing the purchaser with the ordered good within this period.

Section 3 Prices If nothing to the contrary is stated in the order confirmation, our prices are ex works. If the purchaser is late in payment, we are entitled to request interest in accordance with section 288 of the German Civil Code. If we can prove that we suffered greater injury due to the late payment, we are entitled to claim for this. For orders with an agreed term of over four months, we reserve the right to increase prices in accordance with the cost increases due to collective wage agreements or material price increases. If the increase is more than 5% of the price agreed, the purchaser is entitled to terminate the contract. All prices in offers and order confirmations do not include the VAT which is due at the rate valid upon delivery, unless anything to the contrary has been stated. The purchaser is only entitled to set off sums if his counterclaims are legally valid, undisputed, or recognised by us.

Section 4 Scope and obligations of supply In all matters concerning the type and scope of the delivery, our written order confirmation, invoice, delivery note, or confirmation of sale is final. All offers, prices, orders, and acceptances concerning a specific delivery time are non-binding if they have not been confirmed in writing. When we or our shipping agent transports the goods, we or our shipping agent is only obliged to deliver them to the ramp or unloading point, on the condition that there is lorry access. We are entitled to fulfilling our duties arising from this contract in part deliveries if this is reasonable for the purchaser. If call-off deliveries have been agreed to, the purchaser must make a call-off within the agreed time period. Further damages claims can only be made if the delay was intentional or due to gross negligence. The observance of our obligations is conditional on the punctual and proper fulfilment of the purchaser’s obligations.

Section 5 Transfer of risk Circumstances which make supply of the ordered or purchased good impossible or too difficult as well as force majeure, official action, breakdowns, and traffic congestion—even when this is experienced by our supplier—release us from our supply obligations for the duration of the obstruction and its repercussions. We shall inform the purchaser before such events occur without delay. Such developments also entitle us to withdraw form the contract. If delivery by our suppliers is not made or is insufficient, we are relieved of our supply obligations completely or in part. In such a case, we agree to assign our claims against the supplier to the purchaser if the purchaser requests as such. If empty material (hooks, containers, etc.) is not returned by the purchaser, we will invoice him for this at cost price.

Section 6 Liability for defects The condition of every guarantee made on our part is that we are notified of any obvious defect for which we are responsible without delay once the goods have been received. Objections made late shall be rejected if the good was accepted without dispute. If the purchaser delays in accepting the goods, we can, at the expense and risk of the purchaser, utilise the goods at our premises or exploit them commercially in any way we see fit at the purchaser’s expense without having to give notification beforehand. If the purchaser refuses to accept the goods, their dispatch or other disposition is only permissible with our approval—we must also be granted the right to view the disputed goods at any time. Complaints concerning the weight of goods will only be recognised, if proof can be provided by weighing the goods on the basis of weighing lists. The liability for defects is limited, at our discretion, to the subsequent delivery of fault-free goods. If we choose subsequent delivery and do not perform, the purchaser reserves the right to reduce the price and to rescind the contract at his discretion. Claims by the purchaser, in particular damages claims including lost profit or claims due to other pecuniary loss are excluded provided this is legally permissible. The above liability restriction does not apply if the damage was intentional or was due to gross negligence. Nor does it cover claims arising from death, personal injury, or damage to health; nor when the purchaser claims damages due to a missing characteristic that had been promised. If the material contractual obligation is breached negligently, our liability is limited to the foreseeable damage.

Section 7 Retention of title We retain the title to the good supplied until all payments arising from the contract have been received. If the purchaser does comply with the contract, we are entitled to take back the goods. Taking back or seizing the retained item constitutes withdrawing from the contract. In the case of seizure or other intervention by third parties, the purchaser must inform us immediately in writing. Any processing or reorganisation of the goods by the purchaser is only ever for our benefit. If the good is processed with other goods which do not belong to us, we thereby acquire the joint ownership of the new good. We then own the percentage of the new good which our good contributes to the whole upon processing. If the good is mixed with other goods which do not belong to us, we thereby acquire the joint ownership of the new good. We then own the percentage of the mixed good which our good contributes to the whole when mixed.

Section 8 Payments The invoice sum is due immediately and, upon receipt of the invoice, must be paid immediately without deductions. If supplied on credit, the credit term will be calculated according to the delivery date. We are entitled to accept payments from third parties for the purchaser’s bills even if the purchaser objects to this. We can request the immediate payment of all claims including claims arising from bills of exchange, the terms of which have not yet expired, and make supply dependent on advance payment and the payment of a security if a the financial position of the purchaser worsens or his assets are seriously endangered.

Section 9 Place of performance, place of jurisdiction The place of performance for all reciprocal rights and duties arising from the contracts is our seat of business. The place of jurisdiction is the court competent at our seat of business providing the purchaser is a business person. All contracts are subject to the laws of Germany.

Section 10 Data protection The purchaser agrees to the data we receive within the scope of our business relationship being saved in our EDP system and automatically processed.

Section 11 Severability clause If any provision in these general terms and conditions is or becomes void or ineffective, it shall not in any way affect the validity or effectiveness of the remaining provisions. Ineffective or invalid provisions must be replaced by effective or valid provisions which come as close as possible to the economic content of the invalid or ineffective provision.
