(1) Our General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively for all companies in the Reiling group. Our General Terms and Conditions apply to all service, sale and purchase agreements we conclude with third parties, including other types of agreement, as well as legal transactions we undertake. We do not recognise conditions contradicting or deviating from our General Terms and Conditions which are stipulated by service providers, customers, buyers, sellers, suppliers or other tradespersons (hereinafter collectively referred to as “customers”), unless we have expressly agreed to their validity in writing at the time of contract conclusion. Our General Terms and Conditions also apply if we make a delivery to, provide a service to, make a sale to or make a purchase from the customer, or accept the same, with knowledge of the conditions contradicting or deviating from our General Terms and Conditions. The customer’s terms and conditions do not apply, even if application thereof is not precluded separately in a particular case. We do not consent to the application of such terms and conditions, even if we make reference to correspondence which contains the customer’s terms and conditions or refers to them.
(2) Only the contract concluded in writing or a corresponding written order confirmation including these General Terms and Conditions is authoritative for the legal relationships between us and the customer. The regulations of the written contract and the written order confirmation have priority over these General Terms and Conditions. Otherwise, if a regulation is not laid down in a written contract or the written order confirmation, these General Terms and Conditions apply. Legal regulations apply with lower priority than the written contractual arrangements, the written order confirmation and these General Terms and Conditions.
(3) Our General Terms and Conditions also apply for all future legal transactions with the customer, even if they are not separately agreed again.
(4) Our General Terms and Conditions only apply in relation to contractors in the sense of §14 BGB (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch [German Civil Code]), thus in relation to every natural person, legal entity or partnership with legal capacity which deals with us in the course of performing their commercial or independent commercial activities when executing the legal transaction.
