The warranty for all goods shall be according to the respective warranty conditions of the manufacturer or subsupplier. In case of justified or timely complaint, we shall deliver defect-free goods or improve the delivery. Any defect and any deviation from the order must be reported to us in writing without delay after receipt of the goods, but no later than within 4 days of receipt of the goods. Otherwise, the goods shall be deemed finally accepted. In case of defects, the purchaser shall only have a claim to replacement delivery of defect-free goods. There shall be no claim to conversion, reduction or damages. In case of merchandise, we shall assign our claims against the manufacturer directly to the customer in case of complaint. By asserting complaints for defects, the purchaser shall not be cleared of his obligation to make payment in time. Returns shall be made free of burden in any case.

We reserve title in the goods delivered by us until complete payment or redemption of payment documents provided for this. This reservation shall apply to all, including future, claims from the delivery of goods in case of on-going business relationships. The customer shall have the right to process or sell on these reserved goods in the scope of his trading business. He hereby assigns any resulting claims to us. In case of further processing, we shall be due a prorated shared title. If the customer enters default of payment or does not meet his obligations from the reservation of title, we shall have the right to take possession of the reserved goods in any location, no matter if installed or not. When taking them back, we shall issue a credit at the amount of the day value, minus any costs incurred by us. Withdrawal from the contract shall not be required to assert the rights from reserved title, unless the debtor is a consumer.
