7. Warranty for defects
If a product shows a defect, the statutory regulations apply. It constitutes a deviation when products, against their conventional purpose, were used for a structure and thereby caused its defectiveness:
7.1 For entrepreneurs,
- an immaterial defect does not justify a warranty claim,
- the Seller can choose the type of supplementary performance,
- the statute of limitations for defects on new goods is one year from passing of the risk,
- warranty claims for used goods are generally excluded,
- the statute of limitations does not begin anew if a replacement was provided as part of a warranty claim.
7.2 For consumers, the statute of limitations for warranty claims
- for new goods is two years after delivery to the Customer,
- for used goods is one year after delivery to the Customer, with the limitation of paragraph 7.3.
7.3 For entrepreneurs and consumers, the above mentioned warranty and statute of limitations in paragraphs 7.1 and 7.2 do not apply to claims for damages or expense reimbursements that the buyer can claim based on statutory regulations for defects in accordance with paragraph 8.
7.4 Furthermore, for entrepreneurs, the statute of limitations for the right of recourse in accordance with § 478 BGB (German Civil Code) are not affected. The same applies to entrepreneurs and consumers when it comes to deliberate neglect of duty and fraudulent concealment of a defect.
7.5 If the Customer acts as a merchant in accordance with § 1 HGB (German Commercial Code), he is subject to the commercial "examination and notice of non-conformity" in accordance with § 377 HGB. If the Customer fails to adhere to the stated obligation to notify, the goods are deemed accepted.
7.6 If the Customer acts as a consumer, he is asked to inform the deliverer and Seller of obvious transportation damages of delivered goods. Failure to do so has no affect on the Customer's statutory or contractual warranty claims.
7.7 If the supplementary performance is carried out in the form of a replacement, the Customer is responsible for returning the previously delivered goods to the Seller at his expense within 30 days. The return of defect goods has to be carried out according the the statutory regulations.

8.1 The Seller has unlimited liability on all legal grounds
- as a result of premeditation or gross negligence,
- as a result of negligent or deliberate injury to life, body or health,
- based on a promise of guarantee, provided there are not other regulations to this effect,
- based on mandatory liability, such as according to the law on product liability.
8.2 If the Seller negligently breaches a fundamental contractual obligation, the liability is limited to direct losses foreseeable and typical for this type of contract, provided that there is no unlimited liability in accordance with paragraph 8.1.. Fundamental contractual obligations are obligations that the Seller needs to adhere to in order to fulfil the purpose of the contract. The Customer may routinely trust that those obligations are being observed by the Seller.
8.3 Incidentally, the Seller is excluded from liability.
8.4 Preceding liability regulations also apply to the Seller's liability for his auxiliary persons and legal representatives.

If the Customer is based outside of the sovereign territory of The Federal Republic of Germany, the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes from this contract is the Seller's place of business, if the contract or claims from the contract can be attributed to the Customer's occupational or commercial activities. Considering the preceding cases, the Seller has the right, however, to go to court at the Customer's place of business.
