In the case that a delivery to a customer is not possible because the ordered goods were not accepted or the delivery address was falsely declared, the customer must bear the cost for the unsuccessful delivery.

  • Contracts for the delivery of goods if these by reason of their nature have been inseparably intermixed with other goods after delivery;
  • Contracts for the delivery of goods which are not pre-manufactured and the specification for the production of which is determined by the individual choice of the customer or which are clearly customized for the individual needs of the customer;

13. Reservation of Title

The delivered goods remain the property of MEGASUS until the purchase price has been paid in its completeness, including all incurred costs on the current invoice, including all possible interests, unauthorized deductions or discounts not recognized by MEGASUS.

As long as such reservation of titles are valid and not all the claims are settled, the goods are to be handled with due care. Pledges and pledged securities of the principal before complete payment are excluded.

If the supplied goods are to be seized or confiscated or otherwise taken up by a third party, the customer shall inform MEGASUS promptly. To implement the property laws, the correct information and documents need to be made available for MEGASUS without delay.

  

14. Warranty

Insofar that the customer is a consumer, the general legal clauses of the right of guarantee are valid. Warranty comprises the legal mandatory liability of MEGASUS for defects which the purchased goods have at the time of delivery. Defects arising at a later time are not recognized. The warranty claims are to be claimed within a period of 2 years from the date of delivery, whereby within the first six months from the delivery, MEGASUS has to prove that the defect has not existed at delivery.

From the 7th month of delivery, the customer is required to provide proof. MEGASUS shall be obliged to improve or replace the product in case of warranty. If MEGASUS is unwilling or not able to repair the problem or provide a replacement or the time taken to carry this out is longer than the appropriate time period expected for reasons that fall within the responsibility of MEGASUS or if the repair/replacement delivery is unsuccessful, then the customer is entitled to withdraw from his contract or to ask for an appropriate reduction of the purchase price.

As far as the customer is not a consumer, the customer is responsible for checking the goods upon delivery for completeness and conformity. Any obvious defects must be reported immediately after receiving the goods. In the case that recognizable defects are found within 8 days or other defects within a week after their discovery, a written detailed description of the defects is required. If the complaint is not made, acceptance of fault by the receiving party will be assumed and any warranty is excluded. In the case that a proper complaint is made, the provisions of the warranty law shall be upheld. A warranty period of one year is agreed upon between customers who are not consumers and MEGASUS.

The guarantee for defects that occur as a result of incorrect handling, normal wear and tear or external factors is excluded.

 

15. Manufacturer Guarantee

Insofar the manufacturer made a voluntary commitment, that the goods would properly function for a specific amount time, (the manufacturer guarantee) then the concerning manufacturer guarantee is applicable. The terms and limitation of the respective manufacturer guarantee are then to be taken from the respective warranty conditions.

 

16. Liability

Insofar as the customer is a consumer, the general legal liability conditions are valid. Any liability for instances of slight negligence shall be expressly excluded. Claims for damages become statute-barred after 3 years from the knowledge of the damage and damaging party.

In those cases, where the customer is not a consumer, MEGASUS is not liable for specific outcomes and in any case, only for grossly culpable breaches and the maximum being the common value of the customers ordered goods. Any liability for instances of slight negligence shall be expressly excluded. Furthermore, MEGASUS only takes liability for typical and foreseeable losses, meaning those with accordance with the conclusion of the contract that have been reasonably expected for the circumstances known at this time. Claims of damage of which the customer could obtain insurance coverage or which are in the control of the customer, out of other indirect damages and losses or lost profits as well as general property damage, in particular from deficient, failed or delayed service provision are expressly excluded.

The claims of damages by the customer who is not a consumer and the above provisions of compensation claims become statute barred after 6 months from the knowledge of the damages and the party at fault. The compensation according to the Product Liability Act is governed by statutory provisions. All recourse claims according to § 12 PLA are excluded, unless the party entitled to recourse proves that the fault was caused at least by gross negligence from MEGASUS.

If the liability of MEGASUS is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of employees, representatives, assistants and other auxiliary persons.

 

17. Disclaimer of liability

In preparation of our website and web-shop, every effort has been made to offer the most current, correct, and clearly expressed information possible. Nevertheless, inadvertent errors in information may occur. In particular but without limiting anything here, MEGASUS disclaims any responsibility for typographical errors and accuracy of the information that may be contained on MEGASUS web pages.

 

18. Force Majeure

Insofar that the customer is not a consumer, in cases of Force Majeure or other unforeseen impediments in the sphere of MEGASUS, MEGASUS is absolved from agreed upon commitments. Particular cases of Force Majeure are considered as also operational and traffic disruptions, improper implementation of services (non-delivery or non-performance of the subcontractors, transport disruptions or termination of production; for the length of the above laid out hindrances, MEGASUS is freed of its obligation to perform duties, without customer claims to price reductions or right to other compensation.

 

19. Severability Clause

Insofar that the customer is not a consumer, certain terms of the current contract should be ineffective or impracticable after contract closure, then the validity of the remaining provisions of the contract still remains unchanged. Practical and effective provisions, the effects of which will come closest to fulfilling the commercial goals pursued by the contracting parties through the ineffective and/or impracticable provisions, will replace the ineffective or impracticable provisions. The provisions above also apply in the case that the contract is incomplete.
