The terms below apply to all sales and deliveries of the company GTP Schäfer GmbH (hereinafter: also “Supplier”), unless otherwise agreed in writing. The terms also apply in particular to all deliveries and sales related with a consignment warehouse set up by the Supplier at the premises of the contractual partner (hereinafter: “Customer”). They also apply to all future deliveries, services or offers made to the Customer, even if they are not agreed again separately. Any differing and/or supplementary terms of business of the Customer only apply if the Supplier agrees to them in writing.
If and to the extent that the Supplier is obligated under the German Packaging Act (VerpG) to accept return of packaging, then it is agreed that the return of the packaging is carried out at the Customer’s cost. The place for return is the Sup- plier’s registered office. If and to the extent that there is no obligation to accept returns of packaging, we do not accept returns of packaging.
If the Customer includes drawings, descriptions, technical specifications and/or other documents with its order, then it guarantees that these documents are free of third-party rights. In the event that third-party rights are infringed by the use of the documents by the Supplier, then the Customer releases the Supplier to the extent legally permitted from third-party claims to compensation for damages.
The goods must be inspected carefully immediately after delivery to the Customer. They are considered to be approved by the Customer as far as visible defects or other defects that would have been detectable in a prompt and careful inspection, if a written notice of defect is not received by the Supplier within seven working days after delivery. As far as other defects, the goods are considered to be approved by the Customer if the notice of defects is not received by the Supplier within seven working days after the moment in which the defect became apparent; if the defect was apparent in normal use at an earlier time, then this earlier time is decisive for the start of the period for notification of defects. If defects and/or damages are detected, then a written damage report must be requested from the carrier and, after immediate consultation with the Supplier, an insurance surveyor must be commissioned to make the required assessments when relevant.
If one or more provisions of these Terms are invalid, then the validity of the
remaining provisions is not affected by this. In this case, the invalid or void
provision must be construed, reinterpreted or replaced so that the economic
purpose that it intended is achieved.
