after receiving the order,

VAT number, the order confirmation is sent as long as the VAT number is valid.

2. STRAX shall be entitled to perform part-deliveries to an acceptable extent.
3. Unless agreed otherwise, delivery shall be ex warehouse to the delivery address stated by the customer.
4. If a delivery deadline is agreed with the customer we will undertake our best efforts to comply with this deadline.
5. If a delivery deadline is not agreed the delivery period (dispatch time) is approx. 8 (working days) after receipt of
payment. The customer may request in writing 3 working days after exceeding the non-binding delivery date that STRAX
delivers within an appropriate period of time; on receipt of the request STRAX is in default unless STRAX is not responsible
for the delay to the delivery periods.
6. STRAX shall be entitled to rescind the contract if, despite prior conclusion of an appropriate contract of purchase on its
part, the required supplies are not received; STRAX’s liability for intent or negligence shall be unaffected in accordance
with No. 11 of these Terms and Conditions. STRAX shall immediately inform the customer of the unavailability of the article
within the specified time and, should STRAX wish to rescind, shall immediately exercise the right of rescission; in this case
STRAX shall return any consideration already rendered to the customer without delay.
7. The customer must note the obligation imposed in Section 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) and complain
about faults to the delivered goods without delay.
The parties define a fault that reduces the technical functioning when used properly to an extent that is not simply insignificant
as a defect. Optical defects, damage etc. are not considered to be defects. The customer must include the sale receipt as
evidence of sale to the final customer and in addition describe the defect in detail in a written notice.
2. Subsequent performance
The customer shall have the statutory right to subsequent performance for all defects occurring during the warranty term (cf.
also Section 12 below). Where subsequent performance is rendered by way of advance replacement, the customer shall be
obliged to return the goods supplied in the first instance within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt of the advance replacement.
Timely dispatch is sufficient in order to comply with the time limit. Should the goods fail to be received by STRAX within the
time limit, STRAX shall be entitled to claim compensation for the goods supplied in the first instance and to claim this
compensation through the payment method chosen for payment, unless the customer is not at fault with regard to the failed or
late return shipment.
3. Revocation, reduction, compensation of damages and expenses
In addition, the customer shall be entitled to the statutory rights of revocation and reduction in price in all cases of defects
occurring during the term of the warranty (cf. also Section 11 below), provided the statutory conditions apply. The statutory
rights to damages or compensation for expenses shall be limited in accordance with the limitations of liability in Section 11 of
these Terms and Conditions.
Where the customer wishes to claim damages in lieu of performance for a defect and the goods are capable of being repaired,
a repair shall only be deemed failed after the second unsuccessful attempt. The statutory regulations concerning the
dispensability of the fixing of a time-limit shall remain unaffected (see Art. 440 sentence 1 BGB).
1. STRAX shall be liable for intent or gross negligence on the part of STRAX, a representative or a vicarious agent of STRAX,
and for injury to life, body or health caused by negligence, in accordance with the statutory provisions.
In all other respects, STRAX shall only be liable in accordance with the Product Liability Act and for culpable breach of
essential contractual duties, or where STRAX has maliciously concealed a defect or assumed a guarantee with regard to
the quality of a supplied article.
However, the claim for damages for the breach of essential contractual duties shall be limited to foreseeable damage
typical of the kind of contract, unless another of the exceptions listed in sentence 1 or 2 simultaneously applies.
2. STRAX shall not be liable for damages and defects incurred through improper use, operation and storage, negligent or
incorrect care and maintenance, overuse or improper repair by a non-authorised service partner. Furthermore, STRAX shall
not be liable for damages to appliances which are incurred due to incorrect installation or incorrect fitting of accessories.
3. Where STRAX’s liability has been excluded or limited this shall also apply to the personal liability of employees, their
representatives and/or vicarious agents.
4. The above provisions do not entail a change in the burden of proof.
1. Retention of title with regards to consumers and entrepreneurs
STRAX reserves title to the supplied product until all payments due from the contract of supply have been received. Where
the customer is an entrepreneur and fails to observe his contractual duties, in particular in case of payment default, STRAX
shall be entitled, without setting a period of grace, to claim back the supplied goods and/or – where necessary after
setting a period of grace – to rescind the contract; the customer shall be obliged to surrender the goods. The reclaiming of
the goods shall in this case not constitute rescission of the contract unless STRAX has expressly declared rescission in
writing. Sentences 2 and 3 shall not apply where the customer is a consumer in terms of Art. 13 BGB.
2. Extended reservation of title if the customer is an entrepreneur.
Where the customer is an entrepreneur, the following shall apply in addition to No. 1 of this paragraph:
a) Processing, mixing, combining
The customer is permitted to process or refashion the supplied goods (“processing”). Processing shall be performed on
behalf of STRAX.
Where STRAX in this case does not obtain ownership of the new product created through the processing, STRAX and the
customer agree at this point that the customer shall grant STRAX co-ownership of the new product commensurate with the
value (gross invoice value) of the goods supplied by STRAX in proportion to the value of the other processed goods at the
time of processing.
The preceding sentence shall apply accordingly in cases of inseparable mixing or combining of the supplied goods with
goods which do not belong to STRAX. Where STRAX obtains ownership or co-ownership pursuant to this paragraph of the
General Terms and Conditions the customer shall store the new product for STRAX with the care of a prudent
b) Reselling within the ordinary course of business
The customer shall be entitled to resell the supplied goods to a third party (“buyer”) within the ordinary course of business.
Reselling of the goods supplied is only permitted if the customer receives payment equivalent to the value of the goods
supplied. The customer shall agree with the buyer that ownership shall only be transferred to the buyer upon this payment
In the event of resale and for the purposes of security, the customer herewith assigns to STRAX all claims to which he may
be entitled from the resale to a third party. However, the assignment shall be limited to an amount equivalent to the price
of the supplied goods as invoiced by STRAX. STRAX herewith accepts the assignment.
c) Authorisation to collect, revocation of authorisation to collect
Until revoked, the customer shall have authority to collect all claims assigned to STRAX pursuant to this paragraph of the
General Terms and Conditions. The customer shall immediately forward all payments made in settlement of the assigned
claims, up to the amount of the secured claim.
Where there are justified interests, in particular in cases of payment default, suspension of payments, commencement of
insolvency proceedings, bill protest or reasonable suspicion of over-indebtedness or impending insolvency of the customer,
STRAX shall be entitled to revoke the authority to collect. In addition, following prior warning and observance of a
reasonable time period, STRAX may disclose the assignment for security, realise the assigned claims and demand that the
customer disclose the assignment for security to his clients.
d) Customer’s duty to provide information
Where prima facie evidence for the existence of a justified interest is furnished, the customer shall provide STRAX with the
information necessary to assert STRAX’s rights against the clients and shall hand over the required documents.
e) Pledging or security transfer of security collateral
While the retention of title applies, pledging or transfer by way of security by the customer shall not be permitted. The
customer must immediately inform STRAX of any pledging, confiscation or other orders or interventions of third parties.
f) Release clause
Where the realisable value of all security interests to which STRAX is entitled exceeds the amount of all secured claims by
over 10%, STRAX shall, at the customer’s request, release the appropriate proportion of the security interests. It will be
assumed that the conditions of the preceding sentence are fulfilled where the estimated value of the securities to which
STRAX is entitled reaches or exceeds 150% of the value of the secured claims. The customer shall have the choice
between the release of different security interests.
g) Rescission upon customer’s breach of duty
Where the customer breaches a duty pursuant to this paragraph, STRAX shall – in particular in cases of payment default –
be entitled, even without setting a period of grace, to demand the surrender of the supplied goods and/or the new product
and/or – where necessary after setting a period of grace – rescind the contract; the customer shall be obliged to surrender
the goods. The request to return the goods/the new product shall not constitute a declaration of rescission on the part of
STRAX, unless STRAX expressly declares rescission in writing.
The following provisions under numbers 1 to 3, limiting the period of limitation, shall apply subject to number 4:
1. Where the supplied good is a used product the limitation period for claims for damages due to defects – regardless of legal
grounds – shall be six months, for all other claims and rights due to defects it shall be one year.
2. The limitation periods for claims for damages according to paragraph 1 shall also apply to all other claims for damages
against the seller, regardless of legal grounds. They shall also apply where the claims are not related to a defect.
3. The limitation periods for claims for damages shall also apply to compensation for fruitless efforts.
4. The above-mentioned limitation periods shall apply subject to the following:
a) The limitation periods shall generally not apply in cases of intent or malicious concealment of a defect, or where STRAX
has undertaken a guarantee with regard to the quality of the supplied goods.
b) Furthermore, the limitation periods shall not apply where the purchased object is a building or a good which is used for a
building in accordance with its customary use and which causes the building to be defective, or where the in rem right of a
third party is concerned, on the basis of which the surrender of the purchased object may be demanded.
c) Moreover, the limitation periods for claims for damages shall not apply to grossly negligent breaches of duty, to cases of
culpable breach of essential contractual duties not constituted by delivery of a defective good, to cases of culpable injury
to life, body or health or to claims pursuant to the Product Liability Act.
5. The above provisions do not entail a change to the burden of proof to the customer’s disadvantage.
1. If the General Terms and Conditions in whole or in part have not become part of the contract or are ineffective, the
remainder of the contract shall remain in effect.
2. To the extent that the terms have not become part of the contract or are ineffective, the contents of the contract shall be
determined by the statutory provisions, unless the parties have concluded an individual agreement.
3. The contract shall be ineffective if upholding it, even taking into account the alteration provided in paragraph 2 above,
would represent an unreasonable hardship for one party.
