Towards entrepreneurs, these terms and conditions also apply to future business relations without us having to point out to them again.

You shall remain entitled to collect these claims, we may, however, collect these claims ourselves, if you do not meet your payment obligations.
7. Transport Damage
The following applies to consumers: If goods are delivered that have obviously been damaged during transport, please adress such damages towards the deliverer immediately if possible and get in touch with us without delay. Failing to communicate the complaint towards the deliverer or to contact us does not affect your legal rights, especially your warranty rights, or their execution. However, you will help us to raise a claim towards the carrier or the transport insurance.
The following applies to entrepreneurs: The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration will be transferred to you as soon as we have handed the subject over to the freight agent, the carrier or to any other party in charge of transport. Among business people, the obligation of inspection, notification and rejection in accordance with section 377 of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch) applies. If you fail to execute the announcement as laid down therein, the goods are deemed accepted, unless it is a defect which has not been apparent during inspection. This does not apply if we have maliciously concealed a defect.
8. Warranty and Guarantees
To the extent not governed by a conflicting provision in the below, the statutory warranty rights apply. For consumers, the period of limitation for claims based on defects of used products is one year from delivery of the merchandise. For entrepreneurs, the period of limitation for claims based on defects is one year from transfer of risk; the statutory periods of limitation for the rights of recourse according to section 478 of the German Civil Code (Bürgergesetzbuch) remain unaffected. For entrepreneurs, solely our own details and the manufacturer's product descriptions that have been included in the contract are valid as an agreement upon the merchandise's quality; we assume no liability for public statements or other advertising statements given by the manufacturer. If the supplied product is defective, we shall first furnish a warranty at our discretion by either remedying the effect (rectification) or delivering an item which is free of defects (replace delivery). The limitations as well as the reductions of the time-limits mentioned above do not apply to claims based on defects that have been caused by us, our legal representatives or vicarious agents.
Information on additional guarantees, where applicable, and their specific conditions can be found by the individual product as well as on dedicated information sites in our online shop.
