Martin GmbH

General Terms and Conditions

All our contracts are governed by the conditions below, even if these are not agreed separately in writing. Such conditions are accepted and agreed upon conclusion of the contract. Any terms and conditions which, regardless of their nature, stand contradictory to these General Terms and Conditions, are wholly ineffective, irrespective of the manner in which they are brought to our attention.

Deviations from these General Terms and Conditions require our written consent to attain legal effect. The agreement, for which this formal requirement shall be waived in future, must also be in writing. Silence over contradictory General Terms and Conditions does not constitute consent. We reserve the right to retain ownership of the goods until the purchase price has been paid in full. Our contracting partner is under an obligation to treat the goods with care while such right to retain ownership exists. Our contracting partner must regularly carry out any required maintenance and inspection work at their own expense.

Our contracting partner must notify us immediately in writing of all third party access to the delivered items. This applies in particular to enforcement measures, as well as any damage to or destruction of the contractual items. Any change of ownership must be notified immediately. The right to retain ownership remains in place even if the contractual items delivered by us are installed or used in other items.

Our contracting partner is not entitled to sell on the contractual items for as long as the right to retain ownership exists. If items are sold nonetheless, our contacting partner shall hereby assign to us all claims equivalent to the invoice amount that they assert against a third party, and shall undertake to make an entry to this effect in their books or invoices. We hereby accept this assignment. Following such assignment, we shall be entitled to collect the claim. If our contracting partner processes the goods to such an extent that the right of retention ceases to exist, we shall acquire co-ownership to the new item based on the value of the goods we have delivered. The same applies if our goods are processed or combined with other items.

Should this become necessary, our contracting partner shall take all appropriate measures and sign all documents required to justify and safeguard the right of retention. Our liability shall be limited to intent and gross negligence. Liability for ordinary negligence, compensation for consequential damage and financial loss, savings not realised, loss of interest and damages arising from third-party claims against our contracting partner are precluded.

The prices applicable upon conclusion of the contract as per our current price list will be charged. Our prices are ex-works, excluding packaging and loading. Insofar as delivery and transport are agreed, the prices exclude unloading and transport of the contractual items to the point of installation. This agreement is governed solely by Austrian law.

The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes ensuing, either directly or indirectly, from our business relationships and contracts, shall be the competent court in A-6800 Feldkirch. If individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions are or become ineffective either in whole or in part, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. The wholly or partially ineffective regulation shall be replaced by one which comes closest in its economic purpose to the original.
