Delivery time specifications are always non-binding, unless fixed deadlines are expressly stipulated in writing. Partial deliveries are permissible. Repeat orders shall be deemed to be new orders. Delays in delivery and performance due to acts of God, as well as due to events that are not our responsibility, even to the extent that they occur by our preliminary suppliers, extend the delivery by the length of the impediment, or authorize us and the purchaser, if the impediment lasts more than three months, to withdraw from the contract after a reasonable grace period, in respect to the portion of the contract not yet fulfilled.
If acceptance of the ordered goods does not occur in a timely manner for reasons that are the responsibility of the purchaser, we are entitled to the right to either prepare an arrears calculation or to withdraw from the contract, or to demand compensation, at our option.
Invoicing shall occur on the day of shipping, to the extent not otherwise expressly stipulated. The respective invoice amount will be immediately due and payable without deductions and charges, if not otherwise stipulated in writing. For new customers or a negative credit assessment, we can require prepayments, payments upon delivery or cash on delivery. Deliveries to foreign countries shall only be made against prepayments.
If the payment is not made upon maturity, the purchaser shall come into default, without the requirement of any additional special notification. In the event of default, we are authorized, regardless of any further claims, to charge interest and commissions in accordance with the normal rates of German banks for short-term credit, however at least in the amount of 3.5% per annum over the respective discount rate of the German Central Bank. Interest is immediately due and payable. If the purchaser is in arrears with payments from the business relationship or if we become aware of circumstances that can reduce the credit worthiness of the purchaser (e.g. judicial or administrative executions, insolvency or application for composition proceedings, negative information of recognized credit protection organizations), we can make every additional delivery contingent on prepayment, as well as make deferred receivables and bills of exchange taken in immediately due and payable, irrespective of the term.

If we accept bills of exchange on the basis of special arrangements, the charges are the responsibility of the customer in any event.
