1 General
1.1 All agreements and offers in relation to companies, legal entities under public law and special funds under public law ("Buyer" or "Purchaser") shall be based exclusively on our following General Terms and Conditions as well as our quality guidelines and special terms and conditions; they shall be deemed accepted in any case by placing the order or accepting the delivery or service. Anyone who has accepted these terms and conditions simultaneously acknowledges that they shall also apply to future orders, call-offs or acceptances, unless otherwise agreed. Unless we stipulate otherwise in special contractual conditions, the law shall apply exclusively to our business relations with consumers. We are not willing to participate in a dispute resolution procedure within the meaning of the German Consumer Dispute Resolution Act (VSBG) and are not obliged to do so (§ 36 VSBG).
1.2 Deviating, even only supplementary, general terms and conditions of the Buyer or Purchaser which we do not expressly recognise in writing shall not be binding for us, even if we do not expressly object to them. In the event that the customer bases his order on deviating terms and conditions, we shall only accept this order on the basis of our General Terms and Conditions. In particular, we shall deliver the ordered goods to the customer without exception on the basis of our provisions on the extended reservation of title pursuant to clause 6, solely in accordance with which we fulfil our obligation to provide ownership.
1.3 Orders shall only be deemed accepted when we have confirmed them in writing or by signed fax or by e-mail provided with a qualified electronic signature.
1.4 All other agreements and legally relevant declarations must also be made in writing. Trial orders for quality inspections, tests, QM documentation, etc., shall not be delivered free of charge. Clause 1.3 shall apply on the basis of our respective current price list or individual offer.
