IMPORTANT: If the goods are delivered with obvious damage to the packaging or the contents, please complain immediately to the carrier/freight service, if necessary refuse acceptance and contact us as soon as possible. This is the only way we can assert our rights against the freight forwarder/freight service. Please also inform us of any hidden defects after they have been discovered. Of course, your warranty rights as our customer remain unaffected. 

Section 6 Force Majeure
If, for reasons for which we are not responsible, we do not receive the contractual delivery or service owed by our sub-suppliers despite proper and sufficient stocking up prior to the conclusion of the contract with the customer in accordance with the quantity and quality from our delivery or service agreement with the customer, no correct or not in time, or if events of force majeure occur, we will inform our customer in good time in writing or in text form. In this case, we are entitled to postpone the delivery for the duration of the hindrance, provided we have complied with our above information obligation and have not assumed the procurement risk or a delivery guarantee. The following are equivalent to force majeure: strikes, lockouts, official interventions, energy and raw material shortages, transport bottlenecks or obstacles through no fault of our own, operational hindrances through no fault of ours - e.g. due to fire, water and machine damage - and all other hindrances which, from an objective point of view, are not our fault caused. 

§ 7 Defective Goods
Should you ever find damage to the goods we have delivered, we always strive to find a mutually satisfactory solution. If the goods delivered by us are defective, we are entitled, at our discretion, to repair the defective item or to make subsequent deliveries. 


Please note:


(1) To examine the delivered goods for deviations in quality and quantity and to notify us in writing of any recognizable defects within a period of two weeks from receipt of the goods. Of course, your warranty rights as our customer remain unaffected. 


(2) Hidden defects must be reported to us in writing within a period of two weeks from discovery. Deadline is sufficient for the timely dispatch. It bears the full burden of proof for all prerequisites for a claim, in particular for the defect itself, for the point in time at which the defect was determined and for the timeliness of the notice of defects.

§ 8 Payment
The following payment methods are generally available in our shop:


Vorkasse 
If you pay in advance, you will receive an electronic message stating the amount to be paid and our bank details. Once your payment has been credited to our accounts, the ordered products will be sent to you as soon as they are available. 


Credit card
When you place your order, you send us your credit card details at the same time. After your legitimation as the legitimate cardholder, we will request your credit card company to initiate the payment transaction immediately after the order has been placed. The payment transaction is carried out automatically by the credit card company and your card is charged.


Instant bank transfer
After placing the order, you will be redirected to the website of the online provider Sofort GmbH. In order to be able to pay the invoice amount via Sofort, you must have an activated online banking account with PIN/TAN procedure for participation in Sofort, identify yourself accordingly and confirm the payment order to us. The payment transaction will be carried out immediately afterwards by Sofort and your account will be debited.

SEPA direct debit

The SEPA direct debit is a cashless payment process. The payer's account is debited with a specific and predetermined amount by the payee. The payer instructs the payee to carry out the financial transaction.


The invoice
You pay the invoice amount after receipt of the goods and the invoice by bank transfer to our bank account. We reserve the right to offer purchase on account only after a successful credit check.

§ 9 Retention of title
(1) The goods remain our property until full payment.


(2) The pledging or security transfer of the reserved goods is not permitted. You must inform us immediately about enforcement measures by third parties on the goods subject to retention of title and hand over the documents necessary for intervention; this also applies to impairments of any other kind. Irrespective of this, you must inform third parties in advance of the rights to the goods.

§ 10 Damage in transit
The following applies to consumers (private customers):
If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, please report such defects to the deliverer as soon as possible and contact us immediately. The omission of a complaint or contact has no consequences for your legal claims and their enforcement, in particular your warranty rights. However, they help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.

§ 11 Warranty and Guarantees
(1) For new goods purchased from us, we grant a warranty of two years from delivery of the goods. This does not apply to claims for damages due to defects or claims under the Product Liability Act. Section 12 applies to claims for damages due to a defect. Unless otherwise regulated in §12, the statutory limitation period applies to all claims for damages, even if they are based on a breach of the obligation to remedy defects. The limitation periods in the case of a delivery recourse according to §§ 478, 479 BGB remain unaffected.


(2) In order to avoid legal disputes, before enforcing your warranty claims, you are also obliged to make the goods subject to the complaint available to us for examination of the defect, at our discretion at your premises, by sending them to us or to one of us determine third parties. To agree on how to proceed, please contact us by email: office@simtecx.com.


(3) The limitation of the warranty period does not apply if we can be accused of gross negligence or in the event of bodily injury and damage to health attributable to us and if you lose your life. Our liability under the Product Liability Act remains unaffected. Subsequent performance does not constitute acknowledgment i. s.d. § 212 BGB.  


(5) Warranty claims also expire if unauthorized third parties have interfered with the goods delivered by us or if changes have been made to them or consumables are used that do not correspond to our manufacturer specifications for the individual products delivered by us. If we replace individual components of the delivered items by way of repair, we acquire ownership of the removed components. In the event of a subsequent delivery, our company becomes the owner of the replaced products and/or components upon receipt of the replacement product by the contractual partner. Finally, in cases where defects in the products we have delivered cannot be proven to be detectable, we allow ourselves to charge a service fee depending on the effort involved, but usually EUR 80.00. We do not give you any guarantees in the legal sense. Manufacturer guarantees remain unaffected. 

Section 12 Limitation of Liability
(1) We exclude liability for slightly negligent breaches of duty, provided these do not relate to essential contractual obligations, damage from injury to life, limb or health or guarantees or claims under the Product Liability Act are affected. The same applies to breaches of duty by our vicarious agents and our legal representatives. The essential contractual obligations include, in particular, the obligation to hand over the item to you and to give you ownership of it. Furthermore, we have to provide you with the item free of material and legal defects.


(2) We are only liable for our own content on our website. Insofar as we enable access to other websites with links, we are not responsible for the external content contained there. We do not adopt the external content as our own. If we become aware of illegal content on external websites, we will immediately block access to these pages. 

§ 13 Dispute Resolution
The EU Commission provides an online platform for out-of-court dispute resolution. As a result, consumers can initially resolve disputes in connection with online orders without the intervention of a court. The platform can be reached via the following external link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. Please note that we are not obliged to participate in such an arbitration procedure, but we do not refuse to participate in an out-of-court arbitration procedure.

Responsible is the general consumer arbitration board of the Center for Arbitration eV, Straßburger Straße 8, 77694 Kehl am Rhein, www.verbraucher-schlichter.de.
