§ 1 Scope of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale

1. The following General Terms and Conditions of Sale apply to all our contracts and orders in the relevant version that is valid at the time when contracts are concluded.

2. The General Terms and Conditions of Business of the purchaser are herewith overridden, and do not form part of the contractual content.

1. Your contract enters into effect upon our acceptance of your order.

2. This acceptance of contract occurs when Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG delivers the goods, or renders the services.

3. We immediately confirm the receipt of electronic orders—but this does not, however, represent an acceptance of contract.

§ 3 Withdrawal policy

The right of withdrawal shall be excluded for orders placed by the buyer for the purpose of his own commercial or independent professional activity.

1. Withdrawal rights

The purchasing party is entitled to cancel this contract within 14 days without stating any reasons. The withdrawal period is 14 days and begins on the day on which the purchasing party or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by the purchasing party has acquired the material possession of the goods. In order to exercise the right of withdrawal, the purchasing party is obliged to notify the trader (Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG, Grünwalder Weg 30, D-82041 Oberhaching, Tel.: +49 89 55875-110, Fax: +49 89 55875-421, E-Mail: info@buerklin.com) accordingly by means of express request (e.g. by mail, fax, or e-mail) to withdraw from this contract. The purchasing party may use the included standard withdrawal form to this effect, though without being obliged to do so. To observe the withdrawal period, it shall be considered sufficient for the purchasing party to send off the notification prior to the expiration of the withdrawal period. The right of withdrawal is excluded in cases pursuant to Article 312 g (2) of the German Civil Code (BGB).

2. Consequences of withdrawal

If the purchasing party cancels this contract, Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG shall reimburse all payments received including shipping costs (excluding additional costs incurred if the purchasing party has selected a delivery procedure other than the standard, most cost-effective shipment offered by Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG) immediately, but no later than 14 days after having received the notification of withdrawal of this contract. If not agreed otherwise, Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG shall employ the means of payment the purchasing party has used for the original transaction, without claiming any fees for this reimbursement. Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG is entitled to withhold the reimbursement until the merchandise has been returned, or the purchasing party has submitted satisfactory proof of having sent back the goods - whichever may be the earlier date. The purchasing party is obliged in all cases to return the merchandise to Bürklin GmbH & Co. KG, Grünwalder Weg 30, D-82041 Oberhaching, immediately within fourteen days, starting on the day of notification of the withdrawal. The deadline shall be deemed to have been observed if the buyer has dispatched the goods prior to the expiration of this deadline. The purchasing party is liable for the immediate costs of the return shipment. The purchasing party shall be liable for costs up to an estimated amount of approximately 100.00 EUR incurred by the shipment of merchandise that cannot be dispatched in parcels. The purchasing party shall only be liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to ascertain the nature, characteristics and the functioning of the goods.

End of the Withdrawal Policy

§ 4 Purchasers’ inspection obligations

1. The images, pictures, drawings and technical data reproduced in our catalogue and in our Internet product range are subject to constant modifications by product manufacturers. Product photos do not necessarily show the specification and scope of delivery, but instead symbolize solely the purchased object, and may differ from the goods delivered.

2. You are obliged to carefully and precisely examine the goods that you receive as to whether the data and figures that are provided correspond with your order. You must carefully check the functionality of the ordered goods before employing them for further use, and ensure that the delivered articles are appropriate for your planned uses.

3. Obligations to inspect and examine for defects and make notification of such defects also apply for dealers.

§ 5 Goods availability and partial deliveries

1. If the item ordered is not available, delivery may not be made, or an equivalent item may be offered or delivered. You are not obligated to accept such an item, and are not obligated to bear the related costs of return dispatch.

2. Partial deliveries are permissible to a reasonable extent.

§ 6 Prices, offset and retention

1. In the case of Internet orders, you order at the price stated in the shopping basket. Otherwise, the list prices apply at the time of order acceptance.

2. Only counterclaims that have been determined to be legally effective, are undisputed, or are recognized may be offset.

3. You may only assert retention rights on the basis of claims arising from the same contractual relationship.

§ 7 Retention of title

1. We retain the title to the object of sale until all payments under the supply contract have been made. If you are in default with the payment, we are entitled to demand the return of the delivered goods.

2. The customer is obliged to treat the object of sale with care; in particular, the purchaser is obliged to take out a reinstatement insurance policy for damage by fire, water and theft.

3. In the case of levies of execution or other third-party interventions, the purchaser must inform us immediately in writing.

4. The purchaser is entitled to resell the object of sale in the normal course of business; however, herewith the purchaser shall assign all accounts receivable up to the amount of the gross invoice total of our claim, owed to the purchaser by the purchaser‘s customer or other third parties from the resale transaction, irrespective of whether the object of sale is resold with or without further processing. The purchaser retains the right to collection even after the assignment has taken place. This is without prejudice to our right to collect the debt ourselves. However, we undertake not to collect the debt if purchasers meet their payment obligations from the sales proceeds, do not fall into arrears, and, in particular, have not filed for settlement or bankruptcy proceedings, nor ceased making payments. If this is the case, however, we may demand that the purchaser informs us of the assigned accounts receivable and the debtors (third parties) involved, providing us with the information required in order to collect, as well as handing over the relevant documents and informing debtors (third parties) of the assignment of accounts receivable.

5. Processing or reshaping of the object of purchase by the purchaser is always performed for us. If the object of purchase is processed using objects that do not belong to us, we obtain co-ownership of the new item proportionate to the ratio between the value of the object of sale (gross amount invoiced) and the value of other items already processed at the time that the object of sale is processed. The same applies to the item created by processing as to the object of sales supplied, subject to retention of title.

6. If the object of purchase is bonded inseparably with objects that do not belong to us, we obtain co-ownership of the new item proportionate to the ratio between the value of the object of sale (gross amount invoiced) and the value of other items already bonded at the time that the object of sale is bonded with other objects. If bonding is such that the item belonging to the purchaser can be considered the main item, it is deemed agreed that the purchaser will assign proportionate co-ownership to us. The purchaser shall hold the sole property or co-owned property in safekeeping for us.

7. The purchaser shall also assign accounts receivable to secure our claims against the purchaser that arise against third parties from bonding the object of sale with a site or property.

8. We undertake to release the collateral to which we are entitled at the request of the purchaser insofar as the realizable value of our collateral exceeds the debts to be secured by more than 10%; the choice of the collateral to be released is our responsibility.

§ 8 Warranty and statute of limitations

1. Statutory warranty provisions shall apply.

2. If the item that you ordered is used for your commercial or independent professional activity, your claims arising from statutory warranty provisions are nevertheless subject to the statute of limitations within one year. This is without prejudice to the statute of limitations pursuant to § 479 of the German Civil Code (BGB).

§ 9 Repair assignments

We do not regularly accept and carry out repair assignments ourselves. In most instances, we arrange an appropriate repair operation. If you request us to arrange a repair operation, legal relationships arise exclusively with the party performing the operation. If you mandate us with the dispatch of goods to the repair operation, we are entitled at our discretion to invoice you with the packaging and dispatch costs that have actually arisen, or to invoice you with lump sum dispatch costs. We will only dispatch the item for repair upon cash payment of the invoice of the third-party operation.

§ 10 Place of jurisdiction, choice of law

1. Our registered place of business (Munich) is the place of jurisdiction for commercial dealers, legal persons and public-law entities. This place of jurisdiction is not exclusive.

2. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies; the validity of United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded.
