General Conditions of Purchase of mann Objecta GmbH & Co. KG in 46414 Rhede

We order based on our general terms and conditions of purchase. Other conditions do not become part of the contract, even if we do not expressly contradict them.

1. Orders and agreements are only binding if they are confirmed by us in writing. The supplier must confirm the order in writing within 2 working days after the date of our order. After this period has expired, we are no longer bound by the order. If a price or a delivery time is not specified in our order and if the supplier uses them in his order confirmation, a binding agreement will only come into existence if it is confirmed in writing by the customer.

2. The delivery time starts from the date of the order. As soon as the supplier can assume that delivery on time is not possible for him in whole or in part, he must inform us immediately, stating the reasons and the expected duration of the delay. In the event of a delay in delivery, we are entitled to demand 2% of the agreed price of the entire delivery for each week of delay commenced, but not more than 10%. Further legal rights remain unaffected. The resulting, lump-sum damage caused by delay will be offset against further claims for damages. Claims for damage caused by delay can also be asserted after unconditional acceptance. The supplier has the right to prove to us that the delay resulted in no damage or a significantly lower damage.

3. All deliveries are made at the risk of the supplier. He also must bear the costs of the transport. If the freight costs are to be borne by us based on a special agreement, the supplier must choose the most favorable shipping method for us.
