- 10.2.2. Characteristics and durability guarantees for special features (assured characteristics) as well as other independent guarantee obligations are only accepted if they have been agreed in writing as such.
- 10.2.3. Warranty claims by the customer presuppose that the customer has properly complied with his inspection and complaint obligations pursuant to § 377 HGB. The corresponding notification of defect shall be made in writing within 7 days of receipt of the goods. In the period from the delivery to the notification of defects, the customer bears the burden of proof for the correct handling of the delivered goods and their product-specific storage. The punctual sending is sufficient to meet the deadline. This also applies to later discovered hidden defects from discovery.

- 12.2. For you as an entrepreneur within the meaning of § 14 BGB, the following modifications apply:
- 12.2.1. The warranty period for you as a business owner is one year from the agreed risk transfer or, if applicable, after acceptance of the delivery item.

In the case of rectification, the new beginning of the limitation period shall be excluded, if it cannot be proofed as consequences of the improvement.
- 12.2.2. The claims for reduction of the remuneration and the exercise of the right of rescission are excluded insofar as the claim for performance or supplementary performance is statute-barred. The statutory period of limitation in the case of the supplier’s liability pursuant to §§ 478, 479 BGB shall remain unaffected. It shall expire no earlier than two months after the date on which the customer has fulfilled the consumer’s claims.
- 12.2.3. The limitation period of one year also applies to all claims for damages against us, which are connected with a defect. If claims for damages are not related to a defect, an exclusion period of 18 months applies. The period begins with the knowledge of the damage and the injuring party.
