General Terms and Conditions
These general terms and conditions of business alone shall govern the entire business relationship with our customers. They shall also apply for all future business relationships without having to be expressly included again. Any terms and conditions of purchase or other terms and conditions of business of our customers which may contradict our terms and conditions of business shall not become part of the contract should we not object to them or should we deliver the consignment.
Terms of payment and offsetting
Payment in full upon shipment of goods, unless other terms of payment have been agreed. The Customer shall be in default thirty days from the date on which payment is due, unless he has paid, otherwise he owes the legal default interest. The Customer shall not be entitled to assert claims and rights on account of defects if he has not paid up payments which are payable and the payable amount is in a reasonable proportion to the value of the consignment beset with defects. Above and beyond this, offsetting against claims by W. Schillig or asserting a right of retention against a claim by W. Schillig is not allowed, unless this counter claim has been recognised by W. Schillig or has been declared final and absolute in a court of law.
