Terms of Service
1.1 These terms and conditions apply unless the contracting parties have agreed otherwise in writing. Deviating conditions of the customer as well as supplements are only binding for us if they have been confirmed by us in writing.
1.2 By placing the order or accepting the delivery, the customer accepts our terms of sale.
1.3 Our terms and conditions apply exclusively to the contract; other conditions do not become part of the contract, even if we do not expressly object to them.

2.2. We shall invoice the costs for packaging, freight and postage separately. Packaging is non-returnable.

2.4 Our invoices are payable: 14 days net. Payment by check or bill of exchange is only deemed to have been made after it has been honoured.

2.5 The customer can only offset against our claims or assert a right of retention if the counterclaims of the customer are undisputed or a legally binding enforcement title against us exists.

3.2 Excess or short deliveries of up to 10% of the ordered quantity are customary in the industry and do not justify complaints or refusals of acceptance
3.3 Special agreements must be made about framework agreements with call quotas. Quantities ordered on call will only be put into production after the customer has expressly set a deadline.
3.4 However, the production material is purchased for the entire quantity and will be invoiced if the order is canceled if it cannot be used elsewhere. 15 Complete or partial cancellations as well as deadline deferrals can no longer be considered after the start of production.

8.1 All risk passes to the customer when the goods (or films, sketches, data) leave our works. Statements and information about the suitability and use of the goods do not exempt the buyer from carrying out his own tests and tests, in particular with regard to the suitability of the goods supplied for the processes and purposes intended by the buyer.
9. Retention of Goods
9.1 All delivered goods remain our property until the complete fulfillment of our claims from all deliveries including any claims for damages. The goods may be resold or further processed in the ordinary course of business.
9.2. If the goods are resold before all of our purchase price claims have been met, the customer's claim from the resale or in the case of combination, mixing or processing in the amount of the value of the goods delivered by us takes the place of the goods by assignment in advance, without there being an express to notify the sale immediately and to instruct the third party purchaser to make insowek payment directly to us. If, contrary to this, the customer receives his claim from the third-party purchaser, he accepts this payment in trust in accordance with the breach of trust provision of the Criminal Code and is obliged to forward the amount received to us immediately.

10.1 The customer must report any defects immediately in writing or by telex within 14 days of receipt of the goods at the latest. Insignificant or small defects in material, surface or color, which are due to the nature of the production, do not justify a complaint.
10.2 In the case of timely, justified complaints, we are free to rework the delivered goods, to supply a replacement or to issue a credit to the customer in accordance with the depreciation of the goods. Further claims of any kind by the customer are excluded. In particular, the customer has no right to cancellation of the purchase contract, reduction of the agreed purchase price or compensation for damages of any kind, including loss of profit, which are directly attributable to the defects.
