They will be also effective to every future business connection, even though the contractual parties will not have agreed them explicitly. Differing terms and conditions of the customer that are not recognized explicitly are not binding for us, even though we do not have contradicted them explicitly. They will not be integral part of the contract through the acceptance of contract, as well.

If the customer has not consigned, when placing the order, his or her e-mail address, the contract will be concluded by the consignment of the goods.

3. We reserve variations of descriptions and information on our website, in brochures, offers as well as other written documents, especially with regard to the material composition, colour, weight, dimension and design, without that the customer may derive any rights from this. Information respecting our products is only approximate and purely exploratory. They do not include any guarantee of quality and durability, unless we have granted explicitly such guarantee.
4. We reserve, also after concluding the purchase contract, to make a credit assessment and, if the examination will be negative, to terminate the contract. Furthermore, we reserve the termination of contract if the goods are not available for at least 4 weeks, or data errors are on hand which is why we may not execute the order. If the goods are not available for the aforesaid period of time, we commit to inform immediately the customer as well as repay immediately the purchase price already paid.

4. The customer has the right to set off only with counter-claims that are sentential, undisputed or acknowledged by us, even though the customer demands deficiency claims.

1. Delivery dates and other time limits are without engagement, unless we have denominated them explicitly binding. The stated delivery time only begins if all commercial and technical matters are settled. The customer has also to perform accordingly and timely every duties that are incumbent upon him or her. That does not apply if we are responsible for the delay.

Otherwise, the customer must pay the accordant part of the purchase price.
