We will only conclude insurances against transport damages on the Buyer’s expressive demand and to the Buyer’s expense.

For the rest, the legal provisions will be applicable.

We reserve the right to ownership to the goods delivered by us until receipt of all payments. The dismissal of individual claims with regard to a current invoice or the striking of a balance and the acknowledgement thereof does not cancel the retention of title. In case of distraint or any other intervention by third party the Customer has to inform us in written immediately.

We are not held liable for any normal wear and tear, unauthorized modification or repair through the Customer or any Third Party. Unless anything else arises in the following, any further claims on part of the Customer – no matter for which legal reason – are excluded. Therefore, we are not liable for any damages not having occurred with regard to the product itself. In particular, we are not liable for any consequential damage subject to the own duty of care, any loss of profit or any other economic loss on part of the Customer.
