Subject to delivery from our suppliers, we will ensure speedy delivery.

The invoice amount is due for payment upon contract formation. You hereby agree that all invoices will be provided by email. Such consent can be revoked at any time.

In our shop, the following payment methods are basically available to you:

A right of set-off is only available to you if your counterclaim entails mutuality of obligation with respect to our principal claim, is undisputed by us or has been legally established.
A right of retention is only available to you if your counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.
6. Retention of title
We retain title to the goods until complete settlement of all claims under our current business relationship. You may resell goods subject to retention of title in the ordinary course of business; you shall assign all receivables from such resale – irrespective of combination or mixing of the goods subject to retention of title with a new article – in the amount of the invoiced amount to us in advance and we shall accept such assignment. You remain entitled to collect the receivables, however we may collect the receivables ourselves insofar as you fail to fulfil your payment obligations.
If you combine, mix or process goods subject to retention of title with other articles, we shall acquire co-ownership of the new article at the ratio of the value of the goods subject to retention of title to the other articles processed at the time of combination, mixing or processing. Where your article is considered to be the principal article, you shall grant us proportionate co-ownership. We undertake to release securities available to us, upon your request, where the value of the securities exceeds the receivables being secured by more than 10%.

The risks of accidental loss or deterioration of the goods will transfer to you once we have submitted the item to the haulier, carrier or other contractor for forwarding to the defined person or establishment.
