  4. Delivery quantity / documents:
    We are not obliged to accept short delivery or over-delivery. The supplier is obliged to make all necessary certificates of weight and certificates of good available and to present them in due time. For the invoice it is authoritative which quantity we or our assistants of execution ascertain at arriving or at the place of destination. If it is not possible to completely unload a transport vehicle, we get a credit advice of the unloaded goods. If the execution of a delivery depends on documents, we are not in default for the cause that the supplier doesn't offer the documents in due time or not complete. There must also be an adequate time in which to examine the documents.

    The specified dates of delivery are intended from the calendar and are fixed dates. Part-deliveries are only accepted with a written acknowledgement from us.

This also obtains for the transport, even if the supplier organized the transportation with a third party. If the supplier leaves this obligation undone or he delayed the passing of this information, he has to compensate all of the damage according to the delayed or omitted information. The acceptance of a delayed delivery or output means no renunciation of claims. If the execution of a delivery is not possible because of strike, war, lockout or force majeure, we are rid of the obligation to accept the delivery.

    We only accept the quality specified from us. Authoritative for the estimation of the quality is the quality control made by us, our assistants of execution and/or our customers after delivery.
  9. Transportation and package

The prescriptions of work must also be observed. In case of dangerous goods, the supplier is obliged to label the packaging and the transportation vehicle according to international prescriptions. We are entitled to leave the used packaging according to the laws and prescriptions at the regular place of delivery for the supplier.

    In case of strike, war, lockout or force majeure at our costumers or assistants of execution, we are rid of the obligation to accept the good. If there are costs because of special outlay at the unloading of the transportation vehicle, e.g. the application of technical equipment or staffing, we are entitled to forward these costs to the supplier.

The applicable law is the one of the Federal Republic of Germany. As far as agreements refer to other laws or prescriptions, our general purchase conditions take priority. This applies specially for the place of jurisdiction and the applicable law.
  15. Partial inefficacy:
