§ 2 Offer, Acceptance

Insofar as the order constitutes an offer within the meaning of § 145 BGB we are entitled to accept the offer within two weeks and in accordance with § 1 (4).

The purchaser shall be entitled to offset only insofar as the purchaser’s counterclaim is acknowledged, undisputed or assessed in a legally binding judgement. The purchaser is entitled to claim retainer rights only to the extent such rights are based on the same transaction.

§ 5 Delivery and Resale

(1) Delivery is conditioned upon timely and proper performance of all duties of the purchaser. Defences based on non-performance of the contract are reserved.
(2) In case of default in acceptance or other breach of duties to cooperate by the purchaser we are entitled to claim any resulting damage including but not limited to additional expenses, if any.

(3) The direct or indirect resale to a wholesale business is prohibited. Furthermore, the goods may only be distributed in the designated packaging size.

§ 6 Passing of Risk, Shipment

If the purchaser demands shipment of the goods the risk of loss or damage to the goods passes to the purchaser upon dispatch.
