General Terms and Conditions

General Terms and Conditions

§ 1. Field of application

These General Terms and Conditions apply exclusively to all business relations established between GAF Günther Pfeiffer GmbH (GAF) and an ordering party within the "book sales" operating area. The version that is valid at the time of placing the order applies. Any other terms and conditions imposed by the ordering party only apply if they have been explicitly acknowledged by GAF in writing.

§ 2. Conclusion and rescission of contract

GAF undertakes to accept any order placed by the ordering party in accordance with the terms and conditions quoted at the web site. Any spelling, printing and calculation errors at the web site entitle GAF to withdraw from the contract.

§ 3. Delivery

Where no other agreements have been made, delivery will be effected ex stock to the destination address given by the ordering party. Risk is transferred to the ordering party as soon as the consignment leaves the business premises of GAF. Delivery deadlines shall be regarded as being non-committal unless GAF has send a binding delivery promise to the ordering party in writing. Generally speaking, delivery will be effected within a week of receiving the order.

§ 4. Due date and payment, default

The purchase price shall be due for payment at the time of placing the order. The ordering party may pay the purchase price by means of credit card or by automatic debit transfer (only in Germany). If the ordering party is in default with respect to payment, e.g. because of a dishonored direct debit, GAF shall then be entitled to demand interest on the defaulted payment amounting to at least 3 % above the base interest rate announced by the Deutsche Bundesbank per year. If GAF has sustained greater damage as a result of the delayed payment, and can furnish evidence of this, GAF shall be entitled to assert claims accordingly.

§ 5. Offset, retention

The ordering party may only be entitled to offset a claim if his counterclaims have been acknowledged by GAF. A right of retention in excess of this may only be exercised if the counterclaim refers to the same contractual relationship.

§ 6. Reservation of ownership

Delivered goods remain the property of GAF until all claims asserted on the ordering party have been settled in full.

§ 7. Warranty for defects and liability

If a purchased item contains defects for which GAF may be held responsible, GAF may choose to either correct the defect or deliver a replacement product. If GAF fails to correct the defect or replace the product within a reasonable period, and the reasons for this can be attributed to GAF, the ordering party shall then be entitled to either withdraw from the contract or demand an appropriate reduction in the purchase price at his own discretion.
The ordering party shall not be entitled to assert any claims in excess of this, irrespective of legal foundation. GAF cannot accept liability for any damage incurred to anything other than the delivery item. This particularly applies to loss of prospective profits or any other economic losses incurred by the ordering party. Wherever GAF's liability is excluded or restricted, the same also applies to the personal liability assumed by members of staff, representatives and assistants.

§ 8. Data protection

All personal data is transmitted via encrypted pages. GAF stores customer data in an internal database. The information in this database is also used to notify customers of other GAF products and forthcoming events.

Bad Schwalbach is the place of jurisdiction for all claims arising in connection with the business relationship. German law applies exclusively.
