General terms and conditions
Conditions for the provision of services
§ 1 Offer and conclusion of contract
With the acceptance of the offer by the customer, a legally valid contract for work and materials comes into existence. Acceptance may be effected by a declaration of intent on the part of the customer in written or oral form.
§ 2 Documents handed over
To all documents handed over to the customer in connection with the placing of the order, such as calculations, drafts, drawings etc., I reserve the rights of ownership and exploitation. These documents may not be made accessible to third parties unless I give the customer my express written consent.
§ 3 Prices and Payment
Unless otherwise agreed, all services shall be invoiced on a time and material basis at the hourly rates valid at the time the contract is concluded. Design work is generally subject to payment, regardless of whether it is used in a product or not. In principle, all prices are quoted exclusive of the applicable value-added tax and, where applicable, delivery and shipping costs. Payment shall be made without deduction exclusively to the account stated on the invoice by the deadline stated on the invoice.
§ 4 Reservation of title
I reserve the right of ownership and exploitation of the delivered item until all claims arising from the contract for work and materials have been paid in full.
§ 5 Other
This contract and all legal relationships between the parties are subject exclusively to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. Should individual provisions of this contract be or become ineffective or contain a gap, the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected. In the event of ambiguities, the most obvious intention shall be assumed in each case.
