Liability for damages caused by defects and consequential damages caused by defects shall be excluded, unless we or our vicarious agents are chargeable with intent or gross negligence.

If the buyer has already treated or processed our merchandise, it shall not be able to make any claims in respect of a defect. If the merchandise was provided with the buyer’s company name or with other trademarks or signs desired by the buyer, the buyer shall only be able to make any claims in respect of a defect if and to the extent that it cannot be reasonably be expected to accept the merchandise because of significant defects in quality.

Negligible deviations in quality, material strength, colour, etc. shall not constitute an entitlement to give notice of defects. In particular, excess or short deliveries with a deviation of 10% shall not constitute an entitlement to give notice of defects.

As long as the buyer itself has not complied with its obligations under the contract, our obligations with regard to the notice of defect shall be suspended. The expiry of the period of limitation shall not be suspended thereby.
