Narva Lichtquellen GmbH + Co. KG | Terms & Conditions for Commercial Use

§ 1 Scope of Application
1. These General Terms and Conditions shall be applied exclusively. They apply to all future contracts with our business partners where frame contracts or continuous business activity are concerned. This shall also apply in the event that we, being aware of conflicting or differing general terms and conditions, perform under the agreement without reservation.
2. General Terms and Conditions of the other contractual partner are not valid as far as they are not in accordance with legal provisions regardless of their content.
3. We reserve the right to withdraw from the contract in case the other party does not accept our Terms and Conditions.
4. These Terms and Conditions apply to transactions with all individuals and legal bodies who contract executing their commercial or other entrepreneurial status as well as bodies organised under public law and public assets.
§ 2 Offers and Pricing
1. Unless specified otherwise the presentation of our goods is without obligation and a mere invitation to place an order. The order of the other party is a binding offer, contract is valid with written confirmation of the order.
2. The prices stipulated are net and refer to delivery ex works. Tax on sales will be added respectively to legal requirements at the moment of delivery unless no tax on sales is due. If applicable costs for shipment and handling will be stated at conclusion of contract.
Cheques or bills of exchange (to be approved beforehand) will be accepted as payment. The date of receipt of payment is the governing date for the legal payment.
3. Should the service stated in the contract not have been performed 4 months after the contract was finalised we are entitled to raise the price according to higher expenses on materials and labour respectively to our calculations. The other party has a right to withdraw from the contract should the price be considerably higher.
§ 3 Delivery and Performance
1. Any delivery dates given by us are “Circa-Dates” unless explicitly stated otherwise.  The other party may require delivery after a reasonable period once the Circa-Date has passed. The term of delivery starts after we have sent out the written confirmation of the contract.
Regarding orders for products outside of our standard range (custom-made products) delivery and performance terms do not start before all data, drawings, approvals etc as well as closure on any technical questions pending have been given by the other party. Furthermore all commissions agreed upon need to be received beforehand.
2. We are not accountable for any delay in performance due to ex post changes to the order made by the other party.
3. In case of delays caused by inevitable and unpredictable events (interruption of operations, official orders, unforeseeable lack of raw materials, blackout, disruption in data processing facilities and lines or electrical power supply, labour dispute) delivery terms will extend adequately if due care was taken to avoid a delay in delivery on our behalf.
The other party will immediately be notified of the reason to not perform and its abolition.
Each party may withdraw from the contract in case the reason to not perform persists for more than two months. If the same reason leads to impossibility to perform without our fault we are released from our obligation to perform.

4. Default in our obligations only occurs – even in case of a set date for performance - if an adequate extension of time is set in written form. We are liable for damage caused by default only up to a typical and foreseeable amount except in cases of full liability (§ 7 of these Terms and Conditions, Damages).
5. In case the other party unrightfully withdraws from an order we can claim 15% of the net price, notwithstanding the right to claim higher actual damages. In case we are entitled to withdraw from a contract due to reasons the other party is accountable for we can claim to retrieve 15% of the net price notwithstanding to prove a higher actual damage on our side. In both cases the other party is free to prove we have suffered none or fewer damages.
§ 4 Time of delivery, passing of risk
1. All deliveries happen EXW, according to Incoterms 2010. The risk of accidental perishing or incidental deterioration is passed on to the other party with handing over of the goods to the carrier, not later than the moment of leaving the premises Erzstraße 22, D-09618 Brand-Erbisdorf. In case of delayed shipment due to reasons of the other party’s liability the risk of accidental perishing passes with notification of readiness for dispatch.
2. Unless stated otherwise we ship as we see fit without a guarantee to chose the fastest or cheapest means of shipment.
3. Partial shipment is admissible where reasonable for the other party.
§ 5 Payment, Right of lien
1. Unless agreed otherwise payment is due 14 days after date of invoice for a 2% trade discount or within 30 days for the net price.
2. To be eligible for the 2% trade discount our justified and undisputed claim has to be paid fully within the 14-days term and comply with all contractual terms on trade discounts. Payments that consist of not the full amount due or not within the term stated render the whole sum not to be eligible for the trade discount.
Requirement for any trade discount is for the other party not to be at default with any obligation towards us.
3. In case of default by the other party a default interest of 8 percentage points above base lending rate must be paid. If payments by the other party are on default or the capability to perform is at risk we are entitled to refuse any further performance and to ask for advance payment except sufficient provision of a security is given.
Deficient capability to perform may be assumed especially if cheques or bills of exchange are protested or if a credit insurer reduces or cancels the limit granted to the other party unless the other party proves the decision by the credit insurer is not justified by deficient capacity to perform. Finally deficient capacity to perform can be stated by a significant decrease in the credit index given by an acknowledged credit reference agency unless the other party proves the decrease not to be justified.
Any other rights of lien to our favour persist.
4. The other party is only entitled to any rights of lien from the same contract being undisputed or recognized by judgement or ready for judgement.
5. The other party can execute the right to setoff only towards her own claims that are undisputed, ready for judgement or recognized by judgement.

Insignificant changes in the goods regarding construction, shape and arrangement as well as the measurements given in the description and insignificant changes to our performance are to be accepted by the other party as long as they are reasonable or of customary amounts, tolerances in quality and arrangement.

The contractual partner is then obliged to assist in the collection of the claim.
