   General Business and Sales Terms and Conditions for Retailers and Firms  

Goods, services and offers are subject to the terms and conditions. Contradicting or deviating terms and conditions of the customer are only accepted only if we have agreed to such in writing. The acceptance, however, only applies for each individually concluded business transaction. Our terms and conditions shall be regarded as irrevocable framework agreement for all subsequent legal transactions between the parties. Contract completion acts by us are not considered an acceptance of the conditions that deviate from our terms and conditions. We retain the right to alter these terms and conditions at any time.

Offers - prices - the conclusion of the contract
Our offers and prices are non-binding and subject to change and do not include value added tax. For delivery within the EU, the value added tax will be omitted if the parties have provided the appropriate UID number prior to the transaction. Delivery to the customer’s address constitutes fulfillment of the contract. All stated goods, services, prices and shipping costs are valid until further notice. Special requests require a written confirmation. If proposals are submitted with us, they shall be binding to the proposing party until 14 days upon receipt. The invoicing of all business transactions is always conducted in Euros.

Delivery - Delivery Time - Claims
Please refer to our homepage for the current transportation costs within Europe. We charge our customers no additional costs for order processing, packaging and delivery of sales tools. The delivery time for items in-stock is usually 2-6 business days, however, in any case within the statutory delivery time of 30 days upon ordering. For custom orders the delivery period may vary. We are authorized to exceed the delivery date by up to 8 days. Only after this period is the customer authorized to withdraw from the contract after setting a reasonable grace period. Shipping is at the customer's risk. Delivery delays due to force majeure or unforeseen circumstances that are not under our control, and which prevent a timely delivery, do not release the customer from the responsibility to accept delivery. Damage during transport shall be reported to us without delay within 24 hours via e-mail or fax. Such report shall include a detailed description of the damage. Should we agree in writing to a retrieval, the goods (sales tools) must be packaged in a transportation-safe container wrapped appropriately, secured with string (glue), and immediately made available for retrieval. We will make the arrangements for return shipping for any damaged goods or sales tools. Shipping and returns within Europe are done with DHL. We insure each package against damage or loss during shipping with an amount of up to 500 Euros.

Sales Tools
We provide our customers throughout Europe with location-specific sales tools at no additional cost for the duration of the contract. The customer is responsible for safe storage of the sales tools and is liable for costs associated with damage or loss up to the original costs shown on the delivery receipt. We shall not be liable for damages of any nature due to improper positioning of our sales assistance by the business partner or for subsequent damage involving his customers.

Payment terms – Interest for default
The customer may choose the form of payment from the following methods: cash, bank transfer, cash advance, COD or bank guarantee. Payment of the purchase price stated on the invoice is due as shown on the invoice. Customers’ payments are only considered are received on the day upon which the funds are deposited in our business account. For late payments, we have the option to require reimbursement of the actual accrued damages or to charge interest to our bill. After three unsuccessful attempts to collect, we may refer the matter to our lawyers, the costs of which are borne by the customer.

Withdrawal from Contract
A delay in acceptance or payment by the customer entitles us to withdraw from the contract, if the terms of the contract have not yet been fulfilled by both parties.


In the event of cancellation through the fault of the customer, we are entitled to compensation of damages. Upon late payment by the customer, we are released from all subsequent obligations for shipping and delivery, and retain the right to withhold outstanding shipments or services, to require advance payment or, as the case may be indemnification, or, after a reasonable grace period, to withdraw from the contract. Should the customer, without authorization, seek to withdraw from or cancel the contract, we have the option to enforce the contract or to agree to its cancellation. In the latter case, the customer is obligated to pay for damages in form of a flat fee of twenty percent of the gross invoice amount plus any costs, expenses, etc. In conjunction with custom-made orders, made to customer’s specifications, wishes, or instructions, in the case of the customer’s withdrawal from the contract for whatever reason, the customer shall be liable for actual incidental damages up to the actual value of work completed, not to exceed the contract value. Customer payments already made will be deducted from the total amount.
