1. Terms and conditions of the contract
The Conditions of Business of the Waren-Verein der Hamburger Börse e.V. (WVB) shall apply to all present and future offers and deliveries from the Seller, exclusively in the version applicable at the time that the contract was concluded provided they are not altered by express, overriding provisions of this confirmation of sale. The Seller only sells under these conditions, excluding the purchasing conditions of the Buyer, even if the Buyer has already notified the Seller or these are expressly listed in his order. Acceptance by the Buyer of the goods delivered by the Seller constitutes acknowledgement of the Seller's conditions of sale, including those applicable to future commercial transactions. No objection by the Seller to the Buyer's conditions of purchase will be entertained. The Seller's failure to respond to such conditions or to the standard conditions does not constitute acknowledgement of such conditions. The Seller's failure to respond to conflicting order confirmations from the Buyer shall not be deemed as acceptance. We shall regard any deviation from the Seller's conditions in the Buyer's order confirmation as a refusal. If the Buyer accepts the Seller's delivery, this shall be irrevocably seen as an agreement of the Seller's conditions of sale.
The Buyer acknowledges that he is aware of the Conditions of the Waren-Verein. These are available from Waren-Verein der Hamburger Börse e.V., D-20095 Hamburg, Grosse Bäckerstrasse 4.
Any agreements which differ from these conditions are only binding if they have been confirmed by the Seller's management in writing or by fax.
The omission of the Buyer's countersignature on this sales confirmation does not affect the validity of the contract's conclusion.
Our General Terms & Conditions of Purchase and Delivery apply to companies as defined by Section 14 German Civil Code (BGB), legal persons under public law and public funds governed by public law.
