HGT Hydraulic Gripper Technology GmbH General Terms and Conditions 

§ 1 General 

These general terms and conditions apply exclusively to all – including future – legal relationships with us. Deviations require a special written agreement with persons expressly authorized to do so by the management. The application of general terms and conditions of our contractual partners is expressly excluded; they also do not become part of the contract if we do not expressly object to them. They are not recognized by mutual performance. They also do not apply if reference is made to them in individual correspondence. Should one or more provisions of our general terms and conditions be or become invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. If such a provision is ineffective, the business partners undertake to replace this provision with one that comes as close as possible to the regulation desired in this provision. If this is not legally possible, the corresponding legal regulations apply. 


§ 2 Place of jurisdiction and place of performance 

The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to all contracts concluded between us and the contractual partner, to the exclusion of all international and supranational (contractual) legal systems, in particular the UN Sales Convention. If the contractual partner is a merchant within the meaning of the Commercial Code, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship is our place of business in Ilsede. Place of performance is Ilsede. 


§ 3 Orders and offers 

Our cost estimates are non-binding. Offers are binding for three months from the date of manufacture, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Orders from the contractual partner are considered binding as soon as they have been confirmed by us in writing. If the delivery takes place without confirmation, the delivery note or the invoice is also valid as an order confirmation. Our general terms and conditions apply exclusively. 


§ 4 Prices 

Our prices are always net prices plus statutory sales tax ex works. They are based on calculations that are valid when the offer is submitted. If the offer is changed before the written order confirmation or before delivery, we reserve the right to make a corresponding price adjustment, to the extent permitted by law. 


§ 5 Delivery and Acceptance 

Delivery dates and deadlines are non-binding. The contractual partner can request us in writing four weeks after exceeding a non-binding delivery date or a non-binding delivery period to deliver within a reasonable period. All facts beyond our sphere of influence - including strikes, lockouts, operational disruptions, etc. at our premises or at our suppliers/carriers - release us from the obligation to deliver for the duration of the hindrance or at our discretion, without the contractual partner being entitled to any claims against us. If carriage paid delivery has been agreed, we will in all cases choose the most favorable alternative for us. Additional costs for express and urgent shipments are borne by the recipient. The contractual partner shall bear any additional freight caused by an increase in the additional freight after conclusion of the contract. We will endeavor to take into account the wishes and interests of the contractual partner with regard to the type and route of dispatch; Any resulting additional costs – even if carriage paid delivery has been agreed – shall be borne by the contractual partner. The risk is transferred to the contractual partner when the goods are handed over to the forwarding agent, carrier or collector, at the latest when they leave the factory. This also applies if carriage paid delivery has been agreed. 


§ 6 Retention of title 

The delivered goods (reserved goods) remain our property until all claims to which we are entitled against the contractual partner now or in the future have been settled, including all current account balance claims. If the contractual partner behaves in breach of contract - in particular if he is in arrears with the payment of a claim for payment - we have the right to take back the reserved goods after we have set a reasonable deadline for performance. The contractual partner bears the transport costs incurred for the return. We may recycle reserved goods which we have withdrawn. The proceeds from the exploitation will be offset against the amounts owed to us by the contractual partner after we have deducted an appropriate amount for the costs of the exploitation. The assertion of our right of ownership, in particular by taking back the goods, is considered a withdrawal from the contract. The contractual partner must treat the reserved goods with care. He must insure them adequately at his own expense against fire, water and theft damage at replacement value. If maintenance and inspection work becomes necessary, the contractual partner must carry it out in good time at its own expense. The contractual partner may use the reserved goods and resell them in the ordinary course of business as long as he is not in default of payment. However, he may not pledge the reserved goods or assign them as security. The contractual partner's payment claims against its customers from the resale of the reserved goods and those claims of the contractual partner with regard to the reserved goods that arise from another legal reason against its customers or third parties (in particular claims from tortious acts and claims for insurance benefits), including all current account balance claims the contractual partner hereby assigns to us in full as a precaution. We accept this assignment. The contractual partner may collect these claims assigned to us on his own account and on our behalf as long as we do not revoke this authorization. This does not affect our right to collect these claims ourselves; however, we will not assert the claims ourselves and will not revoke the direct debit authorization as long as the contractual partner duly meets his payment obligations. However, if the contractual partner behaves in breach of contract - in particular if he is in default with the payment of a payment claim - we can demand that the contractual partner informs us of the assigned claims and the respective debtors, informs the respective debtors of the assignment and informs us all Hands over documents and provides all information that we need to assert the claims. Any processing or transformation of the reserved goods by the contractual partner is always carried out for us. If the reserved goods are processed with other items that do not belong to us, we acquire co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the value of the reserved goods (net invoice amount plus sales tax) to the other processed items at the time of processing. For the rest, the same applies to the new item created by processing as to the reserved goods. If the reserved goods are inseparably connected or mixed with other items that do not belong to us, we acquire co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the value of the reserved goods (final invoice amount including sales tax) to the other connected or mixed items at the time of connection or mixing. If the goods subject to retention of title are combined or mixed in such a way that the contractual partner's item is to be regarded as the main item, the contractual partner and we already agree that the contractual partner transfers proportional co-ownership of this item to us. We accept this transfer. The contractual partner will keep the resulting sole ownership or co-ownership of an item for us. In the event of seizure of the goods subject to retention of title by third parties or other interventions by third parties, the contractual partner must refer to our ownership and must notify us in writing without delay so that we can enforce our property rights. If the third party is unable to reimburse us for the judicial or extrajudicial costs incurred in this connection, the contractual partner shall be liable for them. If the contractual partner requests this, we are obliged to release the securities to which we are entitled insofar as their realizable value exceeds the value of our outstanding claims against the contractual partner by more than 10%. However, we may select the securities to be released. 


§ 7 Payment 

Our invoices are payable within 10 days of the invoice date with a 2% discount or net cash within 30 days. Discount is only granted if there are no previous payment obligations. Repair invoices are payable immediately upon receipt. Checks are only accepted on account of performance. Checks are accepted with reservations and are only valid from the time the payment is cashed. If the payment deadline is not met, we are entitled to demand default interest of 6% p.a. without prior notification. If payment in installments has been agreed, a deterioration in the solvency of the contracting party or non-compliance with the agreed terms of payment entitles us to demand immediate full payment of the purchase price or appropriate security. 


§ 8 Offsetting, right of retention and assignment 

The contractual partner is only entitled to set-off, retention and objection to the non-fulfilment of the contract if the counterclaims have been legally established, recognized or are undisputed. An assignment of claims of the contractual partner from the contracts concluded with us is only permitted with our written consent. 


§ 9 Liability for defects and warranty, exclusion of liability 

The statutory provisions shall apply to the rights of the contractual partner in the event of material defects and defects of title (including incorrect and short deliveries as well as improper assembly or defective assembly instructions), unless otherwise specified below. In all cases, the special statutory provisions for final delivery of the goods to a consumer (supplier recourse in accordance with §§ 478, 479 BGB) remain unaffected. Our products are constantly kept up to date with the latest technology and are subject to constant further development. Changes in construction or design therefore do not justify a complaint. If the quality has not been agreed, it is to be assessed according to the statutory regulation whether there is a defect or not (§ 434 Para. 1 Clause 2 and 3 BGB). However, we assume no liability for public statements by the manufacturer or other third parties (e.g. advertising statements). The contractual partner must comply with the reporting obligations applicable among merchants. Any complaints must be made in writing only. If the contractual partner fails to carry out the proper inspection and/or notification of defects, our liability for the non-notified defect is excluded. If the delivered item is defective, we can choose to rectify the defect (rectification) or deliver a defect-free item (replacement delivery) within a reasonable period of time set by the contractual partner. We are entitled to make the supplementary performance owed dependent on the contractual partner paying the purchase price due. However, the contractual partner is entitled to retain a part of the purchase price that is reasonable in relation to the defect. The contractual partner must give us the time and opportunity required for the supplementary performance owed, in particular to hand over the goods complained about for inspection purposes. In the case of a replacement delivery, the contractual partner must return the defective item to us in accordance with the statutory provisions. Unless otherwise stated in the following provisions, we are liable in the event of a breach of contractual and non-contractual obligations in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions. We are liable for damages – for whatever legal reason – in the event of intent and gross negligence. Our liability for simple negligence on the part of our organs, legal representatives, employees or other vicarious agents is excluded. This does not apply to damage resulting from injury to life, limb or health, for damage resulting from the breach of an essential contractual obligation (obligation, the fulfillment of which is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on the observance of which the contractual partner regularly relies and may rely). . The exclusion of liability also applies to legal claims under the Product Liability Act. The same applies to claims under the Product Liability Act. The above exclusion / limitation of liability applies to the same extent in favor of our organs, legal representatives, employees and other vicarious agents. A free right of termination of the contractual partner (in particular according to §§ 651, 649 BGB) is excluded. Otherwise, the legal requirements and legal consequences apply. 


§ 10 Spare and exchange parts 

HGT can replace defective/replaced parts with new or equivalent refurbished parts as part of the repair and after-sales service. HGT can accept old parts that have been replaced by new replacement parts if the old parts are a) in an exchangeable, d. H. are ready for refurbishment and reusable, b) correspond to the replacement part supplied in terms of number, pattern and completion and c) are free of damage, such as breaks and cracks, which can be attributed to improper use. Ownership of old parts is transferred to HGT upon handover. 


§ 11 Statute of limitations 

Deviating from Section 438 Paragraph 1 No. 3 BGB, the general limitation period for claims arising from material and legal defects is one year from delivery. If acceptance has been agreed, the limitation period begins with acceptance. This does not affect the special statutory provisions for third-party restitution claims (§ 438 Para. 1 No. 1 BGB), in the event of fraudulent intent on the part of the seller (§ 438 Para. 3 BGB) and for claims in supplier recourse in the case of final delivery to a consumer (§ 479 BGB) The above Statutes of limitation under sales law also apply to contractual and non-contractual claims for damages by the contractual partner based on a defect in the goods, unless the application of the regular statutory statute of limitations (§§ 195, 199 BGB) would lead to a shorter statute of limitations in individual cases. The limitation of the product liability law remain unaffected in any case. Otherwise, only the statutory limitation periods apply to claims for damages by the contractual partner. 


§ 12 Drawings and industrial property rights 

Descriptions, operating instructions and brochures are generally provided by us free of charge. Drafts and production drawings may not be duplicated by the recipient or made accessible to third parties without our written consent. If there is no delivery contract, the documents provided by us must be returned without being asked. The contractual partners undertake not to make any unlawful use of the goods purchased from us, in particular to respect our property rights, to refrain from any copying and reproduction, including unprotected parts, and to recognize our intellectual property in the goods supplied. Violations oblige to full compensation. 


§ 13 Data Protection 

We are entitled to process the data received about the customer in relation to the business relationship or in connection with this, regardless of whether it originates from the customer himself or from a third party, within the meaning of the Federal Data Protection Act.
