Hidden deficiencies which could not be found after an incumbent, immediate check of the product must be notified in text form within 6 months after the products left the production, as well.
- With legitimate complains our customers have the choice if a remedy or a replacement will take place. We are authorized to refuse the chosen supplementary performance, if it is only possible with disproportional costs and the other possibility is without remarkable disadvantage for the customer. For businessmen we will choose initially a remedy or replacement for our warranty on deficiencies on the product. In any case the supplementary performance is limited to the amount of the order value. The same applies for the case of a legitimate complaint of the remedy or replacement. In case of delayed, omitted or failed remedy or replacement the client is able to resign from the contract. A commitment for the consequential harm caused by a defect is impossible.

The one-year warranty period does not apply if we are guilty of gross negligence or in case of bodily injury or damage caused to someones health.

§ 8 Liability
Our liability conforms with the common legal regulations. For damages that arise from the harm of life, body or health which are caused by careless neglect of duty of the contractor or an intended or careless neglect of duty of one of his legal representatives or auxiliary persons the contractor is liable without restrictions according to the legal regulations. The same applies for other damages that occur because of careless neglect of duty of an plant operator or an intended or careless neglect of duty of one of his legal representatives or auxiliary persons. For other damages that incur because of a breach of essential responsibilities caused by slight negligence of the contractor or one of his legal representatives or auxiliary persons the liability of the plant operator is limited to the foreseeable damages typical for this type of contract up to a maximum of twice the value of the subject of the order. Claims for other damages in case of the breach of collateral duties with slight negligence are barred. Any further liability is barred. The contractor is not liable for other damages cased by delay that are based on slight negligence; the lawful rights of the client after the expiration of a reasonable additional respite are not affected by this. The aforementioned disclaimers and/or limitations do not apply if the contractor maliciously conceals an insufficiency or has incurred an independent guarantee on the condition of the thing. The client's right to compensation of vain expenses instead of the claim for damages remain unaffected. The claims of the client for compensation are subject to the following arrangements impossible, if the damage was not done by intention or negligence. This also applies to slight negligent breach of duty of our assistants. The aforesaid exclusion of liability does not apply in case we have broken an essential duty negligently; however, in this case our duty of replacement is limited to the contract's standard, predictable damage. Especially, the contractor will not adhere for the lost business profits and the lost savings respectively. Obvious damages in transit must be complained to the deliverer of the delivery service at once; subsequent complaints concerning this matter will not be accepted.
