This consent requirement applies in any case, for example even if we accept the contractor's deliveries without reservation, knowing the general terms and conditions of the contractor.

(4) Individual agreements made with the contractor on a case-by-case basis (including side agreements, additions and changes) always take precedence over these GPC. A written contract or our written confirmation is decisive for the content of such agreements, subject to proof to the contrary.

(5) Legally relevant declarations and notifications by the contractor in relation to the contract (e.g. setting a deadline, reminder, withdrawal) must be made in writing, ie in writing or text form (e.g. letter, email, fax). Statutory formal requirements and other evidence, especially in the event of doubts about the legitimacy of the declaring party, remain unaffected.

(6) References to the validity of legal regulations are only used for clarification purposes. The statutory provisions therefore apply even without such a clarification, unless they are directly amended or expressly excluded in these GPC.

A late acceptance counts as a new offer and requires acceptance by us.

(2) Early services or deliveries as well as any partial service or partial delivery require the express prior written consent of the client.

Request 0,5% of the net price per working day, but not more than 5% of the net price of the late delivery. bb-net reserves the right to prove that greater damage has occurred. The contractor reserves the right to provide evidence that no or only significantly less damage has occurred.

§ 4 PERFORMANCE AND DELIVERY

(2) Delivery within Germany is “free domicile” to the location specified in the order. If the destination is not specified and nothing else has been agreed, delivery must be made to our registered office in Schweinfurt.

(2) The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the item is transferred to us upon delivery at the place of performance.

(7) In addition, in the event of a material or legal defect, we are entitled to reduce the purchase price or to withdraw from the contract in accordance with the statutory provisions. In addition, we are entitled to compensation for damages and expenses in accordance with the statutory provisions.

§ 12 SUPPLIER RECEIPT

(1) We are entitled to our legally determined recourse claims within a supply chain (supplier recourse according to §§ 445a, 445b, 478 BGB) in addition to the claims for defects.

This does not restrict our statutory right to choose (Section 439 (1) BGB).

(2) Before we recognize or fulfill a defect claim asserted by our customer (including reimbursement of expenses in accordance with §§ 445a Paragraph 1, 439 Paragraph 2 and 3 BGB), we will notify the contractor and ask for a written statement, briefly explaining the facts .

5.1 Customer, prospect, partner and business partner data
5.1.1 Data processing during initiation, conclusion and contract termination

Personal data of the interested parties, customers, partners or business partners concerned may be processed to justify, execute and terminate a contract. This also includes looking after the contractual partner, provided this is related to the purpose of the contract. In the run-up to a contract - i.e. in the contract initiation phase - the processing of personal data for the preparation of offers, the preparation of purchase or service contracts or to fulfill other wishes of the interested party aimed at concluding a contract is permitted. Interested parties may be contacted during the contract initiation using the data they have provided. Any restrictions expressed by the interested party must be observed.

5.1.2 Data processing for advertising purposes

Customer loyalty or advertising measures require additional legal requirements. The processing of personal data for advertising purposes is permitted, provided this is compatible with the purpose for which the data was originally collected. The data subject is to be informed about the use of his data for advertising purposes. If data is collected exclusively for advertising purposes, it is voluntary by the person concerned.

Legitimate interests are usually legal (e.g. enforcement of outstanding claims) or economic (e.g. avoidance of contractual disruptions) facts. A processing of personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest may not take place if there is an indication in individual cases that the interests of the data subject worthy of protection outweigh the interest in the processing. The interests worthy of protection must be checked for each processing.

5.1.6 Processing of particularly sensitive data

The processing of particularly sensitive personal data may only take place if this is required by law or if the person concerned has expressly consented. The processing of this data is also permissible if it is absolutely necessary in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims against the person concerned. If the processing of particularly sensitive data is planned, the data protection officer must be informed in advance.

5.1.7 User data and internet

If personal data is collected, processed and used on websites or in apps, those affected must be informed of this in data protection notices and, if applicable, cookie notices. The data protection notices and, if applicable, cookie notices must be integrated in such a way that they are easily recognizable, directly accessible and constantly available for those affected. If usage profiles are created to evaluate the usage behavior of websites and apps (tracking), those affected must be informed about this in the data protection information. Personal tracking may only take place if national law allows this or if the person concerned has consented. If the tracking takes place under a pseudonym, the data subject should be given an option to object in the data protection notice (opt-out). If access to personal data is enabled on websites or apps in an area that is subject to registration, the identification and authentication of those affected must be designed in such a way that appropriate protection is achieved for the respective access.

5.2 Employee data
5.2.1 Data processing for the employment relationship

For the employment relationship, the personal data that are required for the establishment, implementation and termination of the employment contract may be processed. When initiating an employment relationship, applicants' personal data may be processed. After rejection, the applicant's data must be deleted taking into account the deadlines for evidence, unless the applicant has consented to further storage for a later selection process. In the existing employment relationship, data processing must always be related to the purpose of the employment contract, unless one of the following permissions for data processing apply.

If it is necessary to collect further information about the applicant from a third party during the initiation of the employment relationship or in the existing employment relationship, the respective national legal requirements must be taken into account. In case of doubt, the consent of the person concerned must be obtained.

For the processing of personal data that are in the context of the employment relationship, but not originally used to fulfill the employment contract, there must be a legal legitimation. These can be legal requirements or the consent of the employee or the legitimate interests of the company.

5.2.2 Data processing based on legal permission

The processing of personal employee data is also permitted if state legal provisions require, require or permit data processing. The type and scope of the data processing must be necessary for the legally permissible data processing and are based on these legal provisions.

5.2.3 Consent to data processing

Processing of employee data can take place on the basis of the consent of the person concerned. Declarations of consent must be given voluntarily. Involuntary consent is ineffective. For reasons of evidence, the declaration of consent must be obtained in writing or electronically. If the circumstances do not permit this, the consent can be given orally.

Before giving consent, according to 4.3. of this data protection guideline.

5.2.4 Data processing based on legitimate interest

The processing of personal employee data can also take place if this is necessary for the realization of a legitimate interest of bb-net. Legitimate interests are usually justified legally (e.g. the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims) or economically (e.g. evaluation of employees).

Processing of personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest may not take place if there is an indication in individual cases that the employee's interests worthy of protection outweigh the interest in processing. The existence of legitimate interests must be checked for each processing. Control measures that require the processing of employee data may only be carried out if there is a legal obligation to do so or if there is a justified reason. Even if there is a justified cause, the proportionality of the control measure must be checked. The company's legitimate interests in carrying out the control measure (e.g. compliance with legal provisions and internal company rules) must be weighed against a possible legitimate interest of the employee affected by the measure in excluding the measure and may only be carried out if they are appropriate . The legitimate interests of the company and the possible legitimate interests of the employees must be determined and documented before any action is taken. In addition, other requirements that exist under national law (e.g. information rights of those affected) must be taken into account.

5.2.5 Processing of particularly sensitive data

Particularly sensitive personal data may only be processed under certain conditions. Data that are particularly worthy of protection are data on the racial and ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical convictions, trade union membership or the health or sex life of the person concerned. Due to state law, other data categories can be classified as particularly worthy of protection or the content of the data categories can be filled out differently. Likewise, data relating to criminal offenses may often only be processed under special conditions established by state law. The processing must be expressly permitted or prescribed by state law. In addition, processing may be permitted if it is necessary so that the responsible body can meet its rights and obligations in the field of labor law. The employee can also voluntarily expressly consent to the processing. If the processing of particularly sensitive data is planned, the data protection officer must be informed in advance.

5.2.6 Telecommunications and the Internet

Telephone systems, e-mail addresses, intranet and internet as well as internal social networks are primarily made available by the company as part of the operational tasks. They are work equipment and company resource. They may be used within the framework of the applicable legal provisions and internal company guidelines.

Private use is excluded and prohibited in any case.

For security reasons, the use of telephone systems, e-mail addresses and the Internet can be logged for a limited period of time. Personal evaluations of this data may only be carried out in the event of a concrete, justified suspicion of a violation of laws or guidelines of bb-net. These controls may only be carried out by the investigating areas in compliance with the principle of proportionality and by the control of the data protection officer. The respective national laws must be observed.

6. Transmission of personal data

Order processing is when a contractor is commissioned to process personal data without being assigned responsibility for the associated business process. In these cases, an agreement on order processing must be concluded with external contractors. The commissioning company retains responsibility for the correct implementation of the data processing.

The contractor may only process personal data in accordance with the instructions of the client. When placing the order, the following requirements must be observed; the commissioning department must ensure their implementation.

  1. The contractor is to be selected according to his suitability to ensure the necessary technical and organizational protective measures. The contractor has the security acc. Art. 28 para. 3 lit. c, 32 GDPR, in particular in connection with Art. 5 Paragraph 1, Paragraph 2 GDPR.
  2. The order must be placed in text form. The instructions for data processing and the responsibilities of the client and the contractor must be documented.
  3. The contractual standards provided by the data protection officer must be observed.
  4. The client must convince himself of the compliance with the obligations of the contractor before starting the data processing. A contractor can prove compliance with the data security requirements, in particular by submitting a suitable certification. Depending on the risk of data processing, the control may have to be repeated regularly during the contract period.
  5. At numerous points of the GDPR there are independent data protection obligations, which are also directed at the processor.
  6. 27 para. 1 GDPR: The duty to appoint a "representative" also applies to the processor.
  7. 30 para. 2 GDPR: The processor is obliged to keep procedural directories.
  8. 31 GDPR: The duty to cooperate with the data protection supervisory authority also applies to the processor.

  • there is a legal obligation to delete according to EU or national law.

9. Processing confidentiality

Personal data are subject to data secrecy. Employees are prohibited from unauthorized collection, processing or use. Any processing that an employee undertakes without being entrusted with it in the context of the performance of his or her tasks and being appropriately authorized is unauthorized. The need-to-know principle applies: Employees may only have access to personal data if and to the extent that this is necessary for their respective tasks. This requires the careful division and separation of roles and responsibilities as well as their implementation and maintenance within the framework of authorization concepts.

Employees may not use personal data for their own private or commercial purposes, transmit it to unauthorized persons or make them accessible in any other way. Superiors must inform their employees about the obligation to maintain data secrecy at the beginning of the employment relationship. This obligation continues even after the employment relationship has ended.

10. Security of processing

Personal data must be protected at all times against unauthorized access, unlawful processing or disclosure, as well as against loss, falsification or destruction. This applies regardless of whether the data is processed electronically or in paper form. Before introducing new data processing procedures, especially new IT systems, technical and organizational measures to protect personal data must be defined and implemented. These measures must be based on the state of the art, the risks arising from processing and the protection requirements of the data. The responsible department can, in particular, consult the data protection officer. The technical and organizational measures to protect personal data are part of information security management and must be continuously adapted to technical developments and organizational changes.

11. Data protection control

Compliance with the guidelines on data protection and the applicable data protection laws must be checked regularly through data protection audits and other controls. Implementation is the responsibility of the data protection officer and other corporate areas with audit rights.

The results of the data protection controls must be communicated to the data protection officer. The management is to be informed about essential results. The competent data protection supervisory authority can also carry out its own controls of compliance with the provisions of this guideline within the scope of the powers it is entitled to under state law.

12. Data protection incidents

Every employee should immediately report cases of violations of this data protection guideline or other regulations for the protection of personal data to the data protection officer. The manager responsible for the function or the unit is obliged to inform the responsible data protection officer immediately about data protection incidents.

In cases of:

  • unlawful transfer of personal data to third parties,
  • unlawful access by third parties to personal data or
  • a loss of personal data

The notifications provided for in the company must be made immediately so that existing reporting obligations of data protection incidents can be fulfilled under national law.

13. Responsibilities and penalties

The management is responsible for data processing. It is therefore obliged to ensure that the statutory data protection requirements and those contained in the data protection guideline are taken into account (e.g. national reporting obligations). It is a management task of the manager to use organizational, personnel and technical measures to ensure proper data processing in compliance with data protection. The implementation of these requirements is the responsibility of the responsible employees. In the event of data protection controls by authorities, the data protection officer must be informed immediately.

The management is obliged to support the data protection officer in his work. Those responsible for business processes and projects must inform the data protection officer in good time about new processing of personal data. In the case of data processing projects that may result in particular risks for the personal rights of those affected, the data protection officer must be involved before the processing begins. This applies in particular to particularly sensitive personal data. Managers must ensure that their employees are trained in data protection to the extent necessary. Improper processing of personal data or other violations of data protection law are also prosecuted in many countries and can result in claims for damages. Violations for which individual employees are responsible can lead to sanctions under labor law.

14. Data Protection Officer

The data protection officer, as a body that is not subject to specific instructions, works towards compliance with national and international data protection regulations. He is responsible for data protection guidelines and monitors compliance with them. The data protection officer was appointed by the management of bb-net.

Anyone affected can contact the data protection officer with suggestions, inquiries, requests for information or complaints in connection with questions about data protection or data security. Inquiries and complaints will be treated confidentially on request.

If the responsible data protection officer cannot remedy a complaint or prevent a violation of data protection guidelines, the management must be taken into account to remedy the data protection violation.

Inquiries from supervisory authorities must always be brought to the attention of the data protection officer. The data protection officer can be reached as follows:

Pohl Consulting Team GmbH

In order to protect the rights and freedoms of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data, it is necessary that suitable technical and organizational measures are taken and the requirements of this Ordinance are thus met. In order to be able to prove compliance with the regulation, the contractor defines internal strategies and takes measures which, in particular, satisfy the principles of data protection by technology and data protection by default.

The use of the security systems intrusion alarm system (EMA) with integrated access control, fire alarm system and video surveillance is intended to protect the property boundary, ward off intruders and avoid sabotage, espionage and inventory differences.

For this purpose, fixed doors leading to the outside are provided with opening and closing contacts. In addition, there is trap-like surveillance inside with motion detectors for certain areas in order to detect and report unauthorized access via windows and skylights or the trapping of people. In all other phases, the recording is only dependent on movement. Images are only recorded on the hard drives of the digital video system when there is movement in the image or by the moving cameras.

The intrusion alarm system is activated or deactivated via a reader using a transponder. This ensures that only authorized persons can operate. Inevitability is guaranteed and only in connection with the securing of all external doors to lock and open. Inevitability means taking measures to counter false alarms caused by incorrect operation. In this concept, the alarm is transmitted to a constantly manned control center and to selected people's smartphones.

In the case of demands from insurers or auditors for equipment according to the guidelines according to VdS, LKA or DIN 0833, inevitability and an alarm transmission to a constantly manned control center is essential. Fixed video cameras at fixed points that can be viewed and controlled via the factory network are used for outdoor area monitoring and verification of the alarm. The video images are recorded outside of business hours. Due to data protection regulations, access is only password-protected and in accordance with the specifications of the data protection officer. The camera network itself is set up as a separate unit in order to avoid constant stress on the factory network.

The technical and organizational measures are subject to technical progress and further development.

LEGAL CONDITIONS

§ 1 SCOPE

(1) All deliveries, services and offers of bb-net media GmbH - hereinafter referred to as the "seller" - based on orders from contractual partners - hereinafter referred to as the "customer" - are made exclusively on the basis of these general terms and conditions. These general terms and conditions are an integral part of all contracts that the seller concludes with its customers regarding the deliveries and services it offers. These general terms and conditions shall also apply to all future deliveries, services or offers to the customer, even if they are not separately agreed again.

(2) Unless otherwise stated, the seller's product offer is used goods, not a newly manufactured item within the meaning of the German Civil Code (BGB). Condition and scope of delivery can be found in the product descriptions. Unless otherwise agreed, all products offered shall be delivered without software and accessories.

The seller's product range is directed exclusively at entrepreneurs within the meaning of § 14 BGB (German Civil Code). According to this, an entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal capacity that acts in the exercise of its commercial or independent professional activity when concluding the contract.

(3) Terms and conditions of the customer or third parties shall not apply, even if the vendor does not separately object to their validity in individual cases. Even if the seller refers to letters, e-mails, faxes, which contain or refer to the terms and conditions of the customer or a third party, this does not constitute an agreement with the validity of such terms and conditions. Conflicting terms and conditions shall only apply if their validity has been expressly agreed to in writing by the seller.

§ 2 OFFER AND CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT

(1) All offers of the seller are subject to confirmation and non-binding.

(2) When placing an order with the seller, the customer makes a binding offer to the seller to purchase the (desired) product. The customer shall be bound to the seller's offer until the end of the seventh working day following the day on which the seller receives the offer.

(3) The seller shall not be deemed to have accepted the customer's offer until the seller has declared acceptance to the customer or has dispatched the ordered goods.

(4) The customer shall receive an automatic notification of the order placed. Such a notification does not constitute a binding acceptance of the order, unless it also declares acceptance in addition to confirmation of receipt.

§ 3 PRICES AND PAYMENT

(1) All prices quoted by the seller are in EURO plus the applicable statutory value added tax, insurance costs, transaction fees, packaging and shipping costs at the time of the order. Customs duties and similar levies as well as other public, private levies and license fees shall be borne by the customer.

(2) Depending on the agreement between the customer and the seller, payments shall be made by prepayment, Sepa debit, invoice or PayPal.

(3) If a delivery on credit has been agreed to, the payment is due for the seller immediately after receipt of the goods and the invoice by the customer.

(4) The customer is not entitled to any right of set-off or retention unless the counterclaim is undisputed or legally established.

(5) Invoice amounts, if the customer has received the invoice before delivery of the goods, are to be paid within 30 days without any deduction, unless otherwise agreed in writing (also by fax and e-mail). The date of receipt of payment by the seller shall be decisive for the date of payment. If the customer does not pay on the due date, the outstanding amounts shall bear interest from the due date at 8 percentage points pa above the respective base interest rate; the assertion of higher interest rates and further damages in the event of default shall remain unaffected.

(6) The vendor shall be entitled to execute or render outstanding deliveries or services only against advance payment or provision of security, if circumstances become known to it after the order of the contract which are suited to significantly reduce the creditworthiness of the customer and which endanger the payment of the outstanding claims of the vendor by the customer from the respective (pre-) contractual relationship.

§ 4 TERMS OF DELIVERY

(1) Deliveries shall be made ex seller's warehouse (EXW Incoterms®2010) in Schweinfurt or ex warehouse of a subcontractor.

The periods and dates promised there by the vendor for deliveries and services shall always be approximate unless a fixed period or date has been expressly promised or agreed. If shipment has been agreed, the delivery periods and delivery dates shall refer to the time when the goods are handed over to the forwarding agent, carrier or other third party commissioned with the transport.

(3) Irrespective of its rights arising from the delay, the seller may demand from the customer an extension of delivery and performance periods or a postponement of delivery and performance dates by the period in which the customer does not fulfill its contractual obligations towards the seller .

(4) The vendor shall not be liable for any impossibility of delivery or for delays in delivery insofar as these are caused by force majeure or other events not foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract, in particular operational disruptions of any kind, difficulties in procuring materials or energy, delays in transport, strikes, late or incorrect delivery by the supplier for which the vendor is not responsible. Insofar as such events make the delivery or service of the seller considerably more difficult or impossible and the hindrance is not only of a temporary nature, the seller shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract. In the event of hindrances of a temporary nature, the delivery and performance periods shall be extended or the delivery or performance dates postponed by the period of the hindrance plus a reasonable start-up period. Insofar as the customer cannot reasonably be expected to accept the delivery or service as a result of the delay, he may withdraw from the contract by immediate written declaration (also by fax and e-mail) to the seller.

(5) If the seller is in default with a delivery or service or if a delivery or service becomes impossible for the seller for whatever reason, the seller's liability shall be limited to damages in accordance with § 8 of these General terms and conditions.

(3) In the event that the delivered goods are resold, the customer hereby assigns the resulting claims against third parties to the seller by way of security.

(4) If third parties have access to the delivered goods, in particular by seizure, the customer shall immediately inform them of the seller's ownership and inform the seller thereof in order to enable them to enforce their ownership rights. If the third party is not in a position to reimburse the seller for the costs thereby incurred, the seller's customer shall be liable for such costs.

In any case, the customer shall bear the additional costs of remedying the defect resulting from the change.

(3) The warranty does not apply to unchecked, untested or defective goods.

§ 8 LIABILITY

(1) The seller's liability for damages, irrespective of the legal basis, in particular for impossibility, delay, defective or incorrect delivery, breach of contract, breach of duties in contract negotiations and tortious acts, shall be limited in accordance with this paragraph, insofar as this depends on fault.

(2) The seller shall not be liable in the event of simple negligence on the part of its executive bodies, legal representatives, employees or other vicarious agents, provided that this is not a breach of essential contractual obligations.

(3) Insofar as the seller is liable for damages on the merits pursuant to § 8 (2), this liability shall be limited to damages which the seller foresaw as a possible consequence of a breach of contract when concluding the contract or which it should have foreseen if it had exercised due care. Indirect damage and consequential damage resulting from defects in the goods supplied shall only be eligible for compensation if such damage can typically be expected when the goods supplied are used in accordance with their intended purpose.

(4) The limitations of § 8 do not apply to the liability of the seller for intentional behavior, for guaranteed characteristics, for injury to life, body or health or according to the Product Liability Act (ProdukthaftG).

§ 9 RIGHTS OF RESCISSION

§ 10 FINAL COMMISSIONS

§ 1 SCOPE OF APPLICATION; SHAPE

(1) These General Terms and Conditions of Purchase, also referred to as “GPC” apply to all business relations with our business partners and suppliers (“Contractors”). The GPC shall only apply if the Contractor is an entrepreneur (§ 14 BGB), a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law.

(2) The GPC shall apply in particular to contracts for the sale and / or delivery of movable goods ("Goods"), irrespective of whether the Contractor manufactures the Goods itself or purchases them from suppliers (Sections 433, 650 BGB). Unless otherwise agreed, the General Terms and Conditions of Purchase in the version valid at the time of the contractor's order or, in any case, in the version most recently communicated to him in text form, shall also apply as a framework agreement for similar future Contracts, without us having to refer to them again in each individual case.

(3) These General Terms and Conditions shall apply exclusively. Deviating, conflicting or supplementary General Terms and Conditions of the Contractor shall only become part of the contract if and to the extent that we have expressly agreed to their validity in writing. This consent requirement shall apply in any case, for example even if we accept the contractor's deliveries without reservation in the knowledge of the contractor's general terms and conditions of business.

(4) Individual agreements made with the contractor in individual cases (including collateral agreements, supplements and amendments) shall in any case take precedence over these GPC. Subject to proof to the contrary, a written contract or our written confirmation shall be decisive for the content of such agreements.

(5) Legally relevant declarations and notifications of the Contractor with regard to the contract (eg setting of deadlines, reminders, withdrawal) must be made in writing, ie in written or text form (eg letter, e-mail, fax). Statutory formal requirements and further evidence, in particular in the event of doubts about the legitimacy of the person making the declaration, shall remain unaffected.

(6) References to the validity of statutory provisions shall only have clarifying significance. Even without such clarification, the statutory provisions shall therefore apply, unless they are directly amended or expressly excluded in these GPC.

§ 2 CONCLUSION AND TERMS OF CONTRACT

(1) Our order shall be deemed to be binding at the earliest upon written submission or confirmation. The Contractor shall notify us of obvious errors (eg typing and calculation errors) and incompleteness of the order including the order documents for the purpose of correction or completion before acceptance; otherwise the contract shall be deemed not to have been concluded.

(2) Offers and cost estimates of the contractor shall be made free of charge and shall not create any obligations for bb-net, unless otherwise required by law.

(3) The contractor is obliged to confirm our order in writing within a period of 2 days or to execute it without reservation, in particular by dispatching the goods (acceptance). A delayed acceptance shall be considered a new offer and requires our acceptance.

(4) In the event of changes to the content of the contract, such as changes to the scope of delivery and performance, which prove to be absolutely necessary from the point of view of the contractor, the contractor shall notify bb-net immediately, in writing and before they are implemented, of the additional expenditure to be expected. All changes and their implementation require the prior written consent of bb-net.

(5) All goods, fixtures and equipment delivered to the customer must comply with the legal requirements. On request, the contractor must provide bb-net with appropriate certifications and / or declarations of conformity immediately and free of charge. This applies in particular, but not exclusively, to goods with CE, RoHS or EAR markings.

(6) The rights to dissolve the contract shall be determined in accordance with the statutory provisions.

(7) The customer may terminate the contract without notice for good cause.

(8) In the event of termination, without prejudice to the other rights of the customer, the contractor shall only be entitled to remuneration for the services rendered up to the date of termination, which are usable for the customer.

§ 3 DELIVERY TIME AND DELAY IN DELIVERY

(1) The delivery time stated by the client in the order is binding. If the delivery time is not stated in the order and has not been agreed upon otherwise, it shall be 3 days from the conclusion of the contract. The Contractor is obliged to inform us immediately in writing, if he is expecting to be unable to meet agreed delivery times - for whatever reasons.

(2) Early performance or deliveries as well as any partial performance or partial delivery shall require the express prior written consent of the customer.

(3) If the Contractor does not perform its services or does not perform them within the agreed delivery period or is in default, our rights - in particular to rescission and compensation - shall be determined in accordance with the statutory provisions. The regulations in paragraph 4 remain unaffected.

(4) If the contractor is in default, we can - in addition to further statutory claims - demand lump-sum default compensation for damage caused, by default in the amount of 0.5% of the net price per working day, but not more than 5% of the net price of the goods delivered late. bb-net reserves the right to prove that higher damage has been caused. The contractor reserves the right to provide evidence that no damage at all or only a considerably lower damage has been incurred.

§ 4 PERFORMANCE AND DELIVERY

(1) Without our prior written consent, the contractor shall not be entitled to have the performance owed by him rendered by third parties (eg subcontractors). The contractor shall bear the procurement risk for his services unless otherwise agreed in individual cases (eg limitation to stock).

(2) Delivery within Germany shall be "free domicile" to the place specified in the order. If the destination is not specified and unless otherwise agreed, the delivery is to be made to our registered office in Schweinfurt. The respective place of destination is also the place of performance for the delivery and any subsequent performance (debt to be discharged at the place of performance).

(3) Delivery from third countries must always be made CIF in accordance with Incoterms 2010.

(4) The delivery shall be accompanied by a delivery note stating the date (issue and dispatch), the content of the delivery (item number and quantity) and our order identification (date and number). If the delivery note is missing or incomplete, we are not responsible for any delays in processing and payment resulting from this. Separated from the delivery note, a corresponding dispatch note with the same content is to be sent to us.

§ 5 PRICES AND TERMS OF PAYMENT

(1) The price stated in the order is binding. All prices are understood to include statutory value added tax, if this is not shown separately.

(3) The agreed price is due for payment within 30 calendar days from complete delivery and performance (including any agreed acceptance) and receipt of a proper invoice. If we make payment within 14 calendar days, the contractor shall grant us a 3% discount on the net amount of the invoice. In the case of bank transfer, payment shall be deemed to have been made on time if our bank receives our transfer order before the expiry of the payment period; we shall not be responsible for delays caused by the banks involved in the payment process.

(4) We do not owe any interest on maturity. The statutory provisions shall apply to default of payment.

(5) We shall be entitled to rights of set-off and retention as well as the defense of non-performance of the contract to the extent permitted by law. In particular, we shall be entitled to withhold due payments as long as we still have claims against the contractor arising from incomplete or defective performance.

(6) The Contractor shall only have a right of set-off or retention on the basis of counterclaims which have been determined as legally binding or are undisputed.

§ 6 TRANSFER OF RISK, DEFAULT OF ACCEPTANCE

(1) The delivery of movable objects to be produced or manufactured, as well as the performance of assembly services, requires written acceptance by bb-net. The transfer of risk passes to us upon the acceptance of the service by bb-net. An implied acceptance, in particular by putting the subjects of performance into use by bb-net, is excluded.

(2) The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the goods shall pass to us upon delivery at the place of performance. If acceptance has been agreed, it is decisive for the transfer of risk. The statutory provisions of the law on contracts for work and services shall also apply accordingly in other respects in the event of an acceptance. Should we be in default of acceptance, the handover of the delivery will not be affected.

(3) The statutory provisions shall apply to the occurrence of our default of acceptance. However, the contractor must also expressly offer us his service if an action or cooperation on our part (eg provision of material) at a certain or determinable calendar time is agreed upon. If we are in default of acceptance, the contractor may demand compensation for his additional expenses in accordance with the statutory provisions (Section 304 BGB). If the contract relates to an specific item to be manufactured by the contractor (individual production), the contractor shall only be entitled to further rights if we are obliged to cooperate and are responsible for the failure to cooperate.

§ 7 CONTRACTOR'S OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE INFORMATION

(1) Should the contractor deviate from the agreed service, he shall immediately and explicitly point this out to bb-net.

(2) If, in order to fulfill the agreed service, there are different solutions that are economically or technically more suitable, the contractor is obliged to inform bb-net immediately and comprehensively in writing.

(3) Should the contractor recognize that he cannot meet his contractual obligations in whole or in part or cannot meet them in time, he must inform bb-net of this without delay, stating the reasons.

§ 8 PACKAGING

(1) The contractor is obliged to collect packaging material free of charge and to dispose of it properly and completely. At the request of the contractor, appropriate proof of the legally compliant disposal shall be provided by third parties, if necessary. If the contractor fails to comply with this obligation, the customer shall be entitled to charge the contractor for the costs of the professional collection and disposal and the associated expenses in full.

(2) The contractor undertakes to comply with the obligations arising from the Packaging Ordinance (VerpackV), in particular with regard to proper licensing, to prove this to the customer upon request and to fulfill the obligations arising for the customer from the Packaging Ordinance. If these obligations are not transferable, the contractor shall support the customer in fulfilling them free of charge.

§ 9 SECRECY

(1) The client reserves the right of ownership and copyright to illustrations, plans, drawings, calculations, execution instructions, product descriptions and other documents. Such documents shall be used exclusively for the contractual performance and shall be returned to us after completion of the contract. The documents must be kept secret from third parties, even after termination of the contract. The obligation to maintain secrecy shall not expire until and insofar as the knowledge contained in the documents provided has become generally known.

(2) The above provision shall apply mutatis mutandis to substances and materials (eg software, finished and semi-finished products) as well as to tools, templates, samples and other items which we provide to the contractor for production. Such objects are - as long as they are not processed - to be stored separately at the expense of the contractor and to be insured to a reasonable extent against destruction and loss.

§ 10 RETENTION OF TITLE

(1) An extended, forwarded, expanded or subsequent retention of title of the contractor to the ordered goods is not recognized by the customer.

(2) If the customer accepts an offer of the contractor for transfer of ownership (simple retention of title), which is conditional upon payment of the purchase price, the retention of title shall expire at the latest upon payment of the purchase price for the goods.

§ 11 DEFECTIVE DELIVERY

(1) The statutory provisions shall apply to our rights in the event of material defects and defects of title of the goods (including incorrect and short delivery as well as improper assembly, defective assembly, operating or instruction manuals) and other breaches of duty by the contractor, unless otherwise provided for below.

(2) In accordance with the statutory provisions, the Contractor shall be liable in particular for ensuring that the Goods have the agreed quality at the time of transfer of risk to us. In any event, those product descriptions which - in particular by designation or reference in our order - are the subject matter of the respective contract or which have been incorporated into the contract in the same way as these GPC shall be deemed to be an agreement on quality. It makes no difference whether the product description originates from us, the contractor or the manufacturer.

(3) Notwithstanding § 442 para. 1 sentence 2 BGB (German Civil Code), the Customer shall be entitled to claims for defects without limitation even if the Customer was unaware of the defect at the time of conclusion of the contract due to gross negligence.

(4) The statutory provisions (§§ 377, 381 HGB) shall apply to the commercial duty to inspect and give notice of defects with the following proviso: Our duty to inspect shall be limited to defects which become apparent during our incoming goods inspection under external examination, including the delivery documents (eg transport damage, wrong and short delivery) or which are recognizable during our quality control by random sampling. Insofar as acceptance has been agreed, there is no obligation to inspect. Otherwise, it depends on the extent to which an inspection is feasible in the normal course of business, taking into account the circumstances of the individual case. Our obligation to give notice of defects discovered later remains unaffected. Irrespective of our duty to inspect, our complaint (notification of defects) shall in any case be deemed to be prompt and timely if it is sent within 5 working days of discovery or, in the case of obvious defects, of delivery.

(5) Subsequent performance shall also include the removal of the defective Goods and their reinstallation, provided that the Goods have been installed in or attached to another object in accordance with their type and intended use; our statutory claim to reimbursement of corresponding expenses shall remain unaffected. The contractor shall bear the expenses necessary for the purpose of inspection and subsequent performance even if it turns out that there was no defect. Our liability for damages in the event of an unjustified request for the removal of defects remains unaffected; However, in this respect we shall only be liable if we have recognized or grossly negligently failed to recognize that there was no defect.

(6) Notwithstanding our statutory rights and the provisions in para. 5, the following shall apply: If the contractor fails to meet its obligation to provide subsequent performance - at our discretion either by remedying the defect (subsequent improvement) or by delivering a defect-free item (replacement delivery) - within a reasonable period of time set by us, we may remedy the defect ourselves and demand reimbursement of the necessary expenses or a corresponding advance payment from the contractor. If subsequent performance by the Contractor has failed or is unreasonable for us (eg due to particular urgency, endangerment of operational safety or the threat of disproportionate damage), no deadline need be set; we shall notify the contractor of such circumstances without delay, if possible in advance.

(7) Otherwise, in the event of a material defect or defect of title, we shall be entitled to reduce the purchase price or to withdraw from the contract in accordance with the statutory provisions. In addition, we shall be entitled to compensation for damages and expenses in accordance with the statutory provisions.

§ 12 SUPPLIER RECOURSE

(1) Our legally determined rights of recourse within a supply chain (supplier recourse according to §§ 445a, 445b, 478 BGB), we are entitled without restriction in addition to the claims for defects. In particular, we are entitled to demand from the contractor exactly the type of subsequent performance (rectification of defects or replacement delivery) that we owe our customer in the individual case. Our statutory right of choice (§ 439 para. 1 BGB) is not restricted by this.

(2) Before we acknowledge or fulfill a claim for defects asserted by our customer (including reimbursement of expenses in accordance with §§ 445a para. 1, 439 para. 2 and 3 BGB), we shall notify the contractor and request a written statement of the facts of the case. If a substantiated statement is not made within a reasonable period of time and no amicable solution is brought about, the claim for defects actually granted by us shall be deemed to be owed to our customer. In this case, the contractor shall be responsible for providing proof to the contrary.

(3) Our claims arising from supplier recourse shall also apply if the defective goods have been further processed by us or a third party, eg by incorporation into another product.

§ 13 PRODUCER LIABILITY

(1) If the Contractor is responsible for product damage, he shall indemnify us against claims by third parties to the extent that the cause lies within his sphere of control and organization and the Contractor himself is liable vis-à-vis third parties.

(2) Within the scope of his obligation to indemnify, the Contractor shall reimburse expenses pursuant to §§ 683, 670 BGB (German Civil Code) which arise from or in connection with a third-party claim, including recall actions carried out by us . We shall inform the contractor of the content and scope of recall measures - as far as possible and reasonable - and give him the opportunity to comment. Further legal claims shall remain unaffected.

(3) The Contractor shall take out and maintain product liability insurance with a lump sum coverage of at least EUR 10 million per personal injury / property damage

§ 14 INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

(1) The Contractor shall indemnify the Client on first written request and without prejudice to statutory claims, from alleged infringements of patent law, copyright or other property rights. The obligation to indemnify includes all expenses incurred by the customer in connection with claims by third parties.

(2) The period of limitation for the claim for indemnification is three years from the time of knowledge or grossly negligent ignorance of the client of the circumstances justifying the claim. Otherwise, the claim for indemnification shall become statute-barred ten years after its creation, regardless of the knowledge or grossly negligent lack of knowledge.

§ 15 LIMITATION PERIOD

(1) The mutual claims of the contracting parties shall become statute-barred in accordance with the statutory provisions, unless otherwise provided for below.

(2) Notwithstanding Section 438 (1) No. 3 BGB (German Civil Code), the general limitation period for claims for defects is 3 years from the transfer of risk. If acceptance has been agreed, the limitation period shall commence upon acceptance. The 3-year period of limitation shall also apply accordingly to claims arising from defects of title, whereby the statutory period of limitation for real claims for restitution of property of third parties (§ 438 para. 1 No. 1 BGB) shall remain unaffected; furthermore, claims arising from defects of title shall in no case become statute-barred as long as the third party can still assert the right - in particular in the absence of limitation - against us.

(3) The limitation periods of the law on sales, including the above extension, shall apply - to the statutory extent - to all contractual claims for defects. In so far as we are also entitled to non-contractual claims for damages due to a defect, the regular statutory limitation period (§§ 195, 199 BGB) shall apply here, unless the application of the limitation periods of the law on sales leads to a longer limitation period in individual cases.

§ 16 RIGHTS OF USE AND EXPLOITATION

(1) If no deviating agreements have been made, the Contractor irrevocably grants the Contractor, insofar as he himself is the owner of all rights, unlimited rights of use and exploitation of all calculations, graphics, plans, products, models, drawings, tools , graphics or other documents in written, electronic or other form.

§ 17 REVIEW

(1) The customer is entitled to check the execution of the contract by the contractor.

(2) If the Contractor is a merchant within the meaning of the German Commercial Code, a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive - also international - place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship shall be our registered office in Schweinfurt. In all cases, however, we shall also be entitled to bring an action at the place of performance of the delivery obligation in accordance with these General Terms and Conditions or a prior individual agreement or at the general place of jurisdiction of the Contractor.
