Our general terms of business, payment and delivery are set out below
Kreye-Siebdruck GmbH, Marienfelder Straße 52, 56070 Koblenz
These general terms & conditions of business, payment and delivery (T&C) apply to all business relations with traders (section 14 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch - BGB)), legal entities under public law or special funds under public law. Orders shall be carried out solely on the basis of the following conditions. Other terms and conditions shall not assume contractual force, even if we do not expressly refute their validity. Individual contractual agreements shall take precedence over these T&C.
This shall not affect further statutory rights of the contractor, such as the right to compensation.
With the exception of the claims for damages referred to in section VII. 1. and such as arise under product liability law, claims for defects on the part of the customer shall be subject to a limitation period of one year from the delivery (handover) of the goods. This shall not apply if the contractor has fraudulently concealed the defect or has furnished a guarantee in respect of the quality and condition of the item.
The customary business practices of the printing industry shall apply in commercial transactions (e.g. no obligation to return intermediate products, such as data, lithos or printing plates produced for the manufacture of the end product), unless instructed otherwise.
Products, materials and data for delivery to the customer shall only be archived by the contractor after the time of handover of the final product to the customer or to the servants of the latter if this has been expressly agreed along with special remuneration terms. In the absence of an agreement, the customer must arrange any insurance cover.
Contracts for regularly recurring work may be terminated with a notice period of three months.
The customer shall take measures to ensure that no third-party rights, e.g. copyrights, trademark rights or personal rights, are violated by any specifications issued by the latter and most notably by any masters supplied by the latter. In this respect, the customer shall fully indemnify the contractor from all third-party claims including the costs of legal defence and/or legal prosecution, unless the customer can demonstrate that no fault can be attributed to it and that it has complied with all the relevant duties of care and inspection.
The place of performance and place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship shall be the registered office of the contractor if the customer is a merchant, a legal entity under public law, a special fund under public law, or has no place of general jurisdiction in Germany. The contractual relationship shall be governed by German law to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
