GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (GTC) OF ITK DR. KASSEN GMBH .

GTC

For use vis-à-vis:

a person who, at the time of conclusion of the contract, is acting in the exercise of his commercial or independent professional activity (entrepreneur);
legal entities under public law or a special fund under public law.

 

§ 1 General

All deliveries and services are subject to these terms and conditions as well as any separate contractual agreements. Deviating terms and conditions of purchase of the Purchaser shall not become part of the contract even by acceptance of the order.
In the absence of a separate agreement, a contract shall be deemed to have been concluded upon written confirmation of the order by the Supplier.

The supplier reserves the right to samples, cost estimates, drawings and similar information of a physical and intangible nature. The supplier reserves the property rights and copyrights to samples, cost estimates, drawings and similar information of a physical and non-physical nature – also in electronic form; they may not be made accessible to third parties. The Supplier undertakes to make information and documents designated by the Purchaser as confidential available to third parties only with the Purchaser’s consent.

 

§ 2 Price and payment

In the absence of a special agreement, the prices are ex works including loading at the factory, but excluding packaging and unloading. Value added tax at the respective statutory rate shall be added to the prices.

In the absence of any special agreement, payment shall be made without any deduction to the Supplier’s account, namely: 1/3 down payment after receipt of the order confirmation, 1/3 as soon as the Purchaser has been notified that the main parts are ready for dispatch, the balance within one month after the passing of risk.

The customer shall only have the right to withhold payments insofar as his counterclaims are undisputed or have been legally established.

The customer shall only have the right to offset counterclaims from other legal relationships insofar as they are undisputed or have been legally established.

 

§ 3 Delivery time, delay in delivery

The delivery time results from the agreements of the contracting parties. Compliance with the delivery time by the supplier presupposes that all commercial and technical questions between the contracting parties have been clarified and that the purchaser has fulfilled all obligations incumbent upon him, such as the provision of the necessary official certificates or approvals or the payment of a deposit. If this is not the case, the delivery period shall be extended accordingly. This shall not apply if the Supplier is responsible for the delay.

Compliance with the delivery period shall be subject to correct and timely delivery to the Supplier. The Supplier shall inform the Purchaser as soon as possible of any impending delays.

The delivery period shall be deemed to have been complied with if the delivery item has left the Supplier’s works or notification of readiness for dispatch has been given by the time the delivery period expires. Insofar as acceptance is to take place, the acceptance date shall be decisive – except in the case of justified refusal of acceptance – alternatively the notification of readiness for acceptance.

If dispatch or acceptance of the delivery item is delayed for reasons for which the Purchaser is responsible, the costs incurred as a result of the delay shall be charged to the Purchaser, starting one month after notification of readiness for dispatch or acceptance.

If non-compliance with the delivery time is due to force majeure, industrial disputes or other events beyond the Supplier’s control, the delivery time shall be extended accordingly. The Supplier shall notify the Purchaser of the beginning and end of such circumstances as soon as possible.

The Purchaser may rescind the contract without notice if the Supplier is finally unable to perform the entire contract before the risk passes to the Purchaser. Furthermore, the Purchaser may withdraw from the contract if, in the case of an order, the performance of part of the delivery becomes impossible and the Purchaser has a justified interest in refusing partial delivery. If this is not the case, the customer shall pay the contract price attributable to the partial delivery. The same shall apply in the event of the Supplier’s inability to perform. In all other respects §7.2 shall apply.
If the impossibility or incapacity occurs during the delay in acceptance or if the Purchaser is solely or predominantly responsible for these circumstances, the Purchaser shall remain obliged to counter-performance.

If the Supplier is in default and the Purchaser incurs damage as a result, the Purchaser shall be entitled to claim liquidated damages for default. Such compensation shall amount to 0.5 % for each full week of delay, but in total not more than 5 % of the value of that part of the total delivery which cannot be used in due time or in accordance with the contract as a result of the delay.
If the Purchaser sets the Supplier – taking into account the statutory exceptions – a reasonable deadline for performance after the due date and if the deadline is not met, the Purchaser shall be entitled to rescind the contract within the scope of the statutory provisions. At the Supplier’s request, the Purchaser undertakes to declare within a reasonable period of time whether it will exercise its right to withdraw from the contract.

Further claims arising from delay in delivery shall be determined exclusively in accordance with §7.2 of these terms and conditions.

 

§ 4 Transfer of risk, acceptance

The risk shall pass to the Purchaser when the delivery item has left the factory, even if partial deliveries are made or the Supplier has assumed other services, e.g. the shipping costs or delivery and installation. Insofar as an acceptance is to take place, this shall be decisive for the transfer of risk. It must be carried out without delay on the acceptance date, alternatively after the Supplier’s notification of readiness for acceptance. The Purchaser may not refuse acceptance in the event of a non-essential defect.

If dispatch or acceptance is delayed or does not take place due to circumstances beyond the Supplier’s control, the risk shall pass to the Purchaser on the date of notification of readiness for dispatch or acceptance. The Supplier undertakes to take out the insurance policies requested by the Purchaser at the latter’s expense.

Partial deliveries are permissible insofar as they are reasonable for the Purchaser.

 

§ 5 Retention of title
The Supplier retains title to the delivery item until receipt of all payments – including for any additional ancillary services owed – under the delivery contract.

The Supplier shall be entitled to insure the delivery item against theft, breakage, fire, water and other damage at the Purchaser’s expense, unless the Purchaser can prove that it has taken out the insurance itself.

The customer may neither sell, pledge nor assign the delivery item as security. In the event of seizure, attachment or other dispositions by third parties, the Purchaser shall notify the Supplier thereof without delay.

In the event of a breach of contract by the Purchaser, in particular in the event of default in payment, the Supplier shall be entitled to take back the delivery item after issuing a reminder and the Purchaser shall be obliged to surrender the delivery item.

On the basis of the retention of title, the supplier can only demand the return of the delivery item if he has withdrawn from the contract.

 

§ 6 Claims for defects
The Supplier shall be liable for material defects and defects of title in the delivery to the exclusion of further claims – subject to §7 – as follows:

Defects of quality

All parts which prove to be defective as a result of circumstances prior to the passing of risk shall, at the Supplier’s discretion, be repaired or replaced free of defects. The Supplier shall be notified immediately in writing of the discovery of such defects. Replaced parts shall become the property of the supplier.

After consultation with the Supplier, the Purchaser shall give the Supplier the necessary time and opportunity to carry out all repairs and replacement deliveries deemed necessary by the Supplier; otherwise the Supplier shall be released from liability for the consequences arising therefrom.

Only in urgent cases of danger to operational safety or to prevent disproportionately large damage, in which case the Supplier must be notified immediately, shall the Purchaser be entitled to remedy the defect itself or have it remedied by third parties and to demand reimbursement of the necessary expenses from the Supplier.

The supplier shall bear – insofar as the complaint proves to be justified – the expenses necessary for the purpose of subsequent performance, insofar as this does not result in a disproportionate burden on the supplier. Insofar as the expenses increase due to the fact that the buyer has taken the object of sale to a place other than the place of performance after delivery, any additional costs incurred as a result shall be borne by the buyer. In the event of the sale of a newly manufactured item, the Supplier shall also reimburse, to the extent of its statutory obligation, the expenses incurred by the Purchaser in the context of recourse claims in the supply chain.

Within the scope of the statutory provisions, the Purchaser shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract if the Supplier – taking into account the statutory exceptions – allows a reasonable period of time set for it for the rectification or replacement delivery due to a material defect to expire fruitlessly. If there is only an insignificant defect, the Purchaser shall only be entitled to a reduction of the contract price. The right to a reduction of the contract price shall otherwise be excluded.

Further claims shall be determined exclusively in accordance with §7. 2 of these terms and conditions.

No liability shall be assumed in particular in the following cases: Unsuitable or improper use, faulty assembly or commissioning by the Purchaser or third parties, natural wear and tear, faulty or negligent handling, improper maintenance, unsuitable operating materials, defective construction work, unsuitable building ground, chemical, electrochemical or electrical influences – insofar as the Supplier is not responsible for them.

If the Purchaser or a third party carries out improper repairs, the Supplier shall not be liable for the resulting consequences. The same applies to changes made to the delivery item without the prior consent of the supplier.

Defects of title

If the use of the delivery item leads to the infringement of industrial property rights or copyrights in Germany, the Supplier shall, at its own expense, procure for the Purchaser the right to continue using the delivery item or modify the delivery item in a manner reasonable for the Purchaser in such a way that the infringement of property rights no longer exists.

If this is not possible under economically reasonable conditions or within a reasonable period of time, the Purchaser shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract. Under the aforementioned conditions, the Supplier shall also be entitled to withdraw from the contract.

In addition, the Supplier shall indemnify the Purchaser against undisputed or legally established claims of the holders of the industrial property rights concerned.

Subject to §7.2, the obligations of the Supplier set out in §6. 8 are conclusive in the event of an infringement of industrial property rights or copyrights.

They shall only exist if
the Purchaser notifies the Supplier without undue delay of any asserted infringement of industrial property rights or copyrights,
the Purchaser supports the Supplier to a reasonable extent in the defence against the asserted claims or enables the Supplier to carry out the modification measures in accordance with Section VI. 8,
the Supplier retains the right to take all defensive measures, including out-of-court settlements,
the defect of title is not based on an instruction of the Purchaser and
the infringement of rights has not been caused by the fact that the Purchaser has modified the delivery item without authority or has used it in a manner not in conformity with the contract.

 

§ 7 Liability of the supplier, exclusion of liability
If the delivery item cannot be used by the Purchaser in accordance with the contract as a result of culpably omitted or faulty suggestions or advice given by the Supplier before or after conclusion of the contract, or as a result of culpable breach of other contractual collateral obligations – in particular instructions for operation and maintenance of the delivery item – the provisions of §6 and 7.2 shall apply to the exclusion of further claims by the Purchaser.

The Supplier shall only be liable for damage which has not occurred to the delivery item itself – on whatever legal grounds – in the following cases
in case of intent and gross negligence,
in the event of culpable injury to life, limb or health,
in the case of defects which he has fraudulently concealed,
within the scope of a guarantee promise,
in the event of defects in the delivery item, insofar as liability exists under the Product Liability Act for personal injury or property damage to privately used items.
In the event of culpable breach of material contractual obligations, the Supplier shall also be liable in the event of simple negligence, but limited to reasonably foreseeable damage typical for the contract.

Further claims are excluded.

 

§ 8 Limitation

All claims of the Purchaser – on whatever legal grounds – shall become statute-barred after 12 months; this shall also apply to the limitation of claims under a right of recourse in the supply chain pursuant to § 445b para. 1 German Civil Code (BGB), provided that the last contract in this supply chain is not a purchase of consumer goods. The suspension of expiry pursuant to § 445b para. 2 BGB remains unaffected. The statutory time limits apply to claims for damages according to §7. 2 a-c and e. They shall also apply to defects in a building or to delivery items which have been used for a building in accordance with their customary use and have caused its defectiveness.

 

§ 9 Use of software

Insofar as software is included in the scope of delivery, the Purchaser shall be granted a non-exclusive right to use the software supplied, including its documentation. It is provided for use on the delivery item intended for this purpose. Use of the software on more than one system is prohibited.

The Purchaser may only reproduce, revise, translate or convert the software from the object code into the source code to the extent permitted by law (§§ 69 a ff. UrhG). The Purchaser undertakes not to remove manufacturer’s details – in particular copyright notices – or to change them without the Supplier’s prior express consent.

All other rights to the software and the documentation, including copies, shall remain with the Supplier or the software supplier. The granting of sub-licences is not permitted.

 

§ 10 Applicable law, place of jurisdiction
All legal relations between the Supplier and the Purchaser shall be governed exclusively by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany applicable to legal relations between domestic parties.

The place of jurisdiction shall be the court having jurisdiction for the Supplier’s registered office. However, the Supplier shall be entitled to bring an action at the Purchaser’s principal place of business.
