General

  1. These Standard Terms and Conditions shall apply to all quotations issued by and contracts concluded with Malek Brautech GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “the Vendor”) for the supply of goods and services, including the provision of information and consultancy services. Only Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10 of these Standard Terms and Conditions shall apply to repair contracts. These Standard Terms and Conditions shall apply to any and all future business relations between the Vendor and the Purchaser, even in the event that the Vendor does not explicitly inform the Purchaser that these Conditions will apply as of the conclusion of any Contract. No quotations issued or contracts concluded by the Vendor shall be subject to any other conditions, even if the Vendor does not expressly object to the application of such other conditions.
  2. Any deviations from these Standard Terms and Conditions, written quotations issued by the Vendor and other provisions agreed between the Vendor and the Purchaser shall not be effective unless approved in writing by the headquarters of the Vendor. Employees of the Vendor, with the exception of shareholders of the Vendor or officers of the Vendor authorized to act on behalf of the Vendor shall not be entitled to conclude any Contract and shall only be entitled to receive written offers from Purchasers. Without limitation, employees of the Vendor shall not be entitled to give binding assurances concerning the object of the Contract or delivery times and shall not be entitled to collect amounts owed to the Vendor.

Delivery – Scope of Supplies

  1. Unless otherwise agreed, all quotations made by the Vendor shall be subject to prior sale. Offers made by the Purchaser shall be binding and the Vendor shall be entitled to accept any such offer within two weeks of the receipt thereof.
  2. The scope of supplies and services of the Vendor under the Contract shall be governed solely by the written confirmation of contract issued by the Vendor. Drawings, illustrations, dimensions, weights or performance data in brochures, circulars, price lists, other publications or quotations of the Vendor shall not be deemed to represent any warranties as to the properties or other features of the goods or services concerned but shall only serve as descriptions of products. Such descriptions shall only be deemed to be approximate.
  3. In the case of goods produced to special order, the Vendor shall be entitled to deviate by up to ± 5 % from the quantities ordered where such deviations are unavoidable for technical reasons and the Purchaser can reasonably be expected to accept such deviations.
  4. The Vendor reserves the right to make changes to the design, materials, specification and type of goods to be supplied even after submitting a confirmation of contract to the Purchaser, always provided that such changes represent technological progress and the Purchaser can reasonably be expected to accept such changes.

Delivery Times

  1. The Vendor shall be entitled to make partial deliveries and to perform part of any services under the Contract.
  2. Periods agreed for the delivery of goods and the performance of services shall only start when all details of the performance of the Contract have been agreed between the Vendor and the Purchaser and the Purchaser has provided all the information, documents, samples and parts to be provided by the Purchaser in accordance with the requirements of the Contract and has made the advance payment required under the Contract. Delivery and performance periods laid down in the Contract shall be interrupted for any periods during which the Purchaser is in arrears with any payment or action required under the Contract.
  3. In the event that the Vendor fails to perform the Contract within the agreed period, the Purchaser shall not be entitled to rescind the Contract or claim damages of the Vendor except where the Vendor is responsible for such delay and the Vendor has failed to perform the Contract within a reasonable grace period of at least 30 days granted by the Purchaser for such purpose.
  4. In the event of unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances (war, warlike occurrences, shortages of energy or raw materials, strikes, legal lockouts and any other business disturbances or acts of authorities for which the Vendor is not responsible), the Vendor shall be released from its obligations to supply goods or perform services under the Contract for the duration of such circumstances. This shall also apply in the event that any such circumstances occur during a delay in delivery or performance. The Vendor shall also be released from its obligation to supply goods or perform services under the Contract in the event that suppliers of the Vendor fail to properly deliver goods or perform services which are required for the Contract. In the event that any such circumstance persists for longer than six weeks, the Purchaser and the Vendor shall be entitled to rescind the Contract.

Prices – Terms of Payment

  1. Except where a fixed price has been explicitly agreed between the Vendor and the Purchaser, all prices quoted by the Vendor shall be deemed to be based on the Vendor’s cost levels as of the date of the confirmation of contract. In the event that goods are delivered or services are performed more than four months after the date of the confirmation of contract issued by the Vendor, or, if no confirmation of contract was issued, the date of the order by the Purchaser, and the costs of the Vendor have increased as a result of rises in material prices and/or wages, the Vendor reserves the right to charge the prices which are appropriate as of the date when the goods are delivered or the services are performed, always provided that the Purchaser can be reasonably expected to accept such increased prices having due regard to the interests of the Vendor.
  2. Unless otherwise expressly agreed between the Vendor and the Purchaser, the prices stated in the Vendor’s price list valid as of the conclusion of the Contract shall apply to all orders issued by Purchasers on the basis of the brochures and price lists of the Vendor. The Vendor will submit its valid price list to the Purchaser on request.
  3. All prices quoted by the Vendor shall be for ex works delivery, not including packing or value added tax. Value added tax at the rate applicable as of the delivery of the goods or the performance of the services shall be added to all prices quoted by the Vendor.
  4. Unless otherwise agreed in writing and subject to the provisions of Paragraph 8 of this Section 4, all payments to the Vendor shall be made within 30 days of the date of the invoice without any deduction to the account designated by the Vendor. The Vendor will grant a discount of 2% on amounts received within 10 days of the date of the invoice.
  5. The Vendor will only accept bills of exchange or cheques on account of performance and amounts owed by the Purchaser to the Vendor shall only be deemed to have been received by the Vendor when they have been irrevocably credited to the account of the Vendor. Any and all fees, charges and discounts arising in connection with bills of exchanges or cheques shall be paid by the Purchaser.
  6. The Purchaser shall not be entitled to exercise any right of setoff or retainer against amounts owed to the Vendor except in the case of claims in respect of which an enforceable judgment has been given or which are undisputed or have been accepted by the Vendor. The Purchaser shall not set off from any amount owed to the Vendor any claim not arising in connection with the same legal relationship.
  7. The Purchaser shall not be entitled to assign any of its rights under the Contract to any third party, with the exception of rights to payments by the Vendor, without the explicit written permission of the Vendor.
  8. In the event that the Vendor, following the conclusion of the Contract, becomes aware of circumstances calling into doubt the creditworthiness of the Purchaser, such as the opening of insolvency proceedings, delay in payments, unfavourable information received or payment delays in connection with previous Contracts, the Vendor shall be entitled to refuse to perform the Contract until the Purchaser has provided adequate security and any delivery and performance periods laid down in the Contract shall be extended accordingly. In any such case, the Vendor shall also be entitled to supply goods on a “cash-on-delivery” basis. In the event that the goods covered by the Contract have already been delivered, the Vendor shall also be entitled to require immediate payment in deviation from the provisions of Paragraph 4 of this Section 4. In the event that the Purchaser does not provide adequate security requested by the Vendor within a reasonable period of time, the Vendor shall be entitled to rescind the Contract and the Purchaser shall not be entitled to any damages.

In such cases, the Vendor shall ship goods by the method and route which the Vendor deems to be most economical.
  2. The Purchaser shall also be obligated to accept goods with insignificant defects.
  3. Should the Purchaser fail to take delivery of goods supplied by the Vendor, the Vendor shall be entitled to compensation for the loss or damage suffered by the Vendor for such reason. In such cases, the risk of the loss or deterioration of the goods supplied shall be transferred to the Purchaser when the Vendor notifies the Purchaser that the goods concerned are ready for shipment.

  2. The Vendor shall only be bound by warranty obligations with respect to goods supplied by the Vendor if such goods are used properly in accordance with the specifications of the Vendor. In the event that defects in any goods supplied by the Vendor are caused by chemical, physical or thermal effects to which such goods would not normally be exposed or of which the Purchaser did not inform the Vendor upon the conclusion of the Contract, the Vendor shall not be bound by any warranty obligations whatsoever with respect to said goods. The same shall apply in the event of defects in goods caused by repairs or modifications carried out by third parties.
  3. The Purchaser shall have no warranty rights in the event of defects having only an insignificant impact on the value or fitness for purpose of goods or insignificant quantity deviations in goods.

Should the Vendor fail to complete subsequent performance within the period of at least 30 days granted by the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall be entitled to claim damages or reimbursement of expenses, to require a reduction in the price payable for the goods concerned or to rescind the Contract or, in the case of Contracts for repair work, to repair the defect at the expense of the Vendor.
  8. In the event that the Purchaser, in addition to the right to claim subsequent performance, holds any of the rights listed in Paragraph 6 of this Section 6, the Purchaser shall be obligated, upon request by the Vendor, to notify the Vendor within 14 days which rights it intends to exercise and how it proposes to exercise such rights. Should the Purchaser fail to so notify the Vendor within said period of 14 days or should the Purchaser insist on subsequent performance, the Purchaser shall not be entitled to exercise such additional rights until a further period of 30 days has elapsed, provided that the Vendor has not completed subsequent performance within said period. In the event that it becomes clear within any deadline set that the Vendor will be unable to meet such deadline, the provisions stated above shall apply mutatis mutandis.
