Customers within the meaning of the following provisions also include consumers according to § 13 German Civil Code, i.e. natural persons concluding a legal transaction for a purpose neither attributable to their commercial activity, nor to their independent professional activity.

„Trade customers“ within the meaning of the terms and conditions are both natural and legal persons or business partnerships with legal capacity, acting in the execution of their independent professional or commercial activity when concluding a legal transaction, § 14 German Civil Code.

The contract language is German. Other languages cannot be taken as the basis for the conclusion of the contract.

Please note that depending on the quality of the media available to the customer and the screen setting chosen by the customer, the presentation of the illustrated products might vary. The respective article description is decisive.

§ 3 Conclusion of the contract

The product presentation is used for the submission of a bid; it is a non-binding request to order the products offered.

A binding request for the purchase at Lindner Intertrade GmbH is given by the customer, if he places an order after having accepted these GTC and if he accepts these GTC by a mouse click and when the order is sent to Lindner Intertrade GmbH by e-mail.

In case of acceptance of this offer, we send you an order confirmation by e-mail.

The acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions is the precondition for purchase.

The order is realised in the following steps:

  2. Insertion of the article into the shopping cart by clicking on the button „Add to shopping cart“
  3. Verification of the information in the shopping cart
  4. Pressing the button „Checkout“
  5. Login to the online shop after optional registration and entry of the customer data name, address, e-mail, phone number and, in case of registration, password.
  6. Indication of the order data (delivery and invoice address, shipping method, payment method)

  8. Binding dispatch of the order liable for payment by clicking on the button „Buy“.

We will confirm the receipt of the order immediately by sending you an automatically generated e-mail (“Order confirmation”). With this confirmation, we accept your offer.

The conclusion of the contract is subject to the availability of the goods. In the event that it turns out that the goods are not available, Lindner Intertrade GmbH immediately informs you thereof in the order confirmation. If the goods cannot be delivered within the foreseeable future, no contract shall be concluded. If the goods are only temporarily not available, you will be immediately informed hereof as well. In case of a delivery delay of more than 2 weeks, the customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract. In this case, any consideration already paid by the customer will be refunded by Lindner Intertrade GmbH.

Lindner Intertrade GmbH expressly reserves the right for technical changes, printing errors and price changes. In the event that our order confirmation contains clerical or printing errors or if our pricing is subject to technical transmission errors, we have the right to contest, in which case we are obliged to prove our error to you. Payments already made will be immediately refunded to you. All offers are non-binding at any time.

§ 4 Revocation

1. Right of revocation
The right of revocation shall only apply to the consumers within the meaning of § 13 German Civil Code (cf. § 1 of these GTC).

Consumers shall have the right to revoke their contractual declaration in text format (e.g. letter, fax, e-mail) within one month, without giving any reason or, if the item was surrendered to them before the deadline, by sending back the item. The deadline starts from the receipt of this instruction in text format, but not before the receipt of the goods by the recipient (in case of repeated delivery of equal goods not before the receipt of the first partial delivery) and not before the fulfilment of our information obligations acc. to art. 246 § 2 in conjunction with § 1 section 1 and 2 EGBGB (Introductory Act of the German Civil Code) and the fulfilment of our obligations in accordance with § 312 g section 1 s. 1 German Civil Code in conjunction with art. 246 § 3 EGBGB. In order to meet the revocation deadline, the timely dispatch of the revocation or the item is sufficient.

Fax: +49 (0) 3723 / 76961-18
E-Mail: office@lintrade.de

Consequences of revocation

n case of an effective revocation, the mutually received benefits and possibly derived profits (e.g. interest) shall be returned. In the event that you are unable return or to reimburse us for the benefits and profits received (e.g. benefits from use) in whole or in part or if you are only able to return them in a deteriorated condition, you are obliged to pay compensation for the value accordingly. For the deterioration of the item and for derived profits, you only have to pay compensation insofar as the profits or the deterioration results from a handling of the item going beyond the verification of characteristics and functioning. “Verification of characteristics and functioning” means the testing and trial of the respective goods, as it is e.g. possible and common in a retail shop. Items consignable by parcel post must be returned at our risk. You shall bear the regular costs of return if the delivered goods correspond to the ordered ones and if the price of the item to be sent back does not exceed an amount of 40.00 € or if, in case of higher prices of the item, you have not paid consideration or made a contractually agreed partial payment at the time of revocation. Otherwise, the return is free of charge for you. Items which are not consignable by parcel post are picked up at your premises. Obligations for reimbursement of payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. For you, the deadline starts upon dispatch of your declaration of revocation or of the item and for us upon their receipt.

End of revocation instructions.

In the following cases, your right of revocation shall be excluded: For goods which are made according to customer specification or which are clearly adapted to the personal needs or which are not suitable for return due to their condition.


§ 5 Return charges when exercising the right of revocation

In the event that you make use of your legal right of revocation (see revocation instructions), you shall be obliged to bear the regular return charges, provided that the delivered goods correspond to the ordered ones and the price of the item to be sent back does not exceed 40.00 € or, in case of a higher price of the item, you have not paid the consideration or made a contractually agreed partial performance at the time of revocation.

Lindner Intertrade GmbH reserves the right to make partial deliveries, provided that a total delivery is not possible. No additional costs are incurred by the customer.

As a basic principle, delivery is only made within Germany, Austria and Great Britain.

Delivery is made within the delivery time expressly agreed or specified within the concrete goods presentation. In the event that no delivery times are expressly agreed or specified within the scope of the concrete goods presentation, delivery shall be made within 4 business days after the receipt of payment. For the dispatch to other countries (Austria and Great Britain), the deliverer usually needs 2 more business days.

Deliveries to consumers within the meaning of § 13 German Civil Code (§ 1 of these GTC) are exclusively made at the cost of the customer. Deliveries to trade customers within the meaning of § 14 German Civil Code (cf. § 1 of these GTC) are exclusively made at the cost and risk of the customer.

The risk shall not be transferred to the purchaser until the handover of the goods. The same applies if the purchaser is in default in accepting the delivery.

For deliveries to trade customers according to § 14 German Civil Code (cf. § 1 of these GTC), the risk of accidental perishing, loss and/or the deterioration of the item shall be transferred to the trade customer upon dispatch of the goods to the person designated for the execution of dispatch. The same applies to the risk of delayed delivery.

§ 7 Payment terms

The indicated prices include the statutory value added tax (currently 19 %) and are specified in Euros. With the exception of subparagraph 6.1., no further price components arise for deliveries in Germany.

The indicated prices do not include any shipping and packing costs. You will receive details on shipping and packing costs within the scope of the concrete goods presentation or in § 6 “Shipping costs, delivery, transfer or risk”. These costs are charged to the customer in addition, unless otherwise agreed or resulting from the applicable legal provisions.

The purchaser only accepts the payment methods indicated within the scope of the concrete goods presentation, namely:

  • Advance payment (bank transfer)
  • PayPal
  • Credit card via PayPal (no PayPal account required)
  • Invoice (only for retailers)

The payment of the purchase price is due without deduction immediately after the conclusion of the contract.

In the event that the customer is in default of payment, Lindner Intertrade GmbH is entitled to charge default interest as follows:

  • for consumers 5 % above the respective base rate
  • for trade customers 8 % above the respective base rate.

Lindner Intertrade GmbH reserves the right to furnish proof of the development of a higher damage in particular cases and to claim damages.

§ 8 Retention of title

The delivered goods remain the property of Lindner Intertrade GmbH until payment is made in full.

The customer is obliged to notify Lindner Intertrade GmbH immediately of any change of residence, as long as there are still outstanding payment obligations owed to Lindner Intertrade GmbH.

§ 9 Compensation/right of retention

The customer shall only have a right for compensation if and when its counterclaims were determined without further legal recourse or if and when they are undisputed or were accepted by us in writing.

The customer may only assert rights of retention if and when its counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship with Lindner Intertrade GmbH.

§ 10 Warranty

Warranty is provided in accordance with the legal provisions (§§ 437 et sqq.). For all defects occurring during the legal warranty period of 2 years from delivery, the customer has the legal right of rectification (at your choice: elimination of the defect or new delivery) and if the legal requirements are met, the customer also has the legal rights of reduction or withdrawal from the contract as well as compensation for damages.

Lindner Intertrade GmbH does not assume any warranty for damages and defects resulting from improper use, operation and storage.

In the event that the inspection of the defective goods shows that the defect was caused by the customer’s fault, the customer will be notified thereof in writing. If the customer then insists on rectification, he shall bear the costs thereof. If no order for rectification is placed, the costs for troubleshooting and fault diagnosis are charged to the customer.

If the purchaser is a trade customer, he has to inspect the goods immediately after the delivery by the seller, insofar as this is feasible according to proper business routines. If he detects a defect, the purchaser shall immediately notify the seller thereof. The burden of proof for the compliance with the deadline of the inspection and timely notification lies with the trade customer. In the event that the trade customer fails to inspect the goods or to give notice of defects in a timely manner, the goods are deemed to have been accepted, unless the defect was not recognisable during inspection.

In this case, notification must be given immediately after detection; otherwise the goods are deemed to have been accepted also in view of such defect.

In order to preserve the rights of the purchaser, a timely dispatch of the notification is sufficient.

The assignment of claims for defects against Lindner Intertrade GmbH shall be excluded.

§ 11 Liability

The liability for slightly negligent breach of duty shall be excluded, provided that it does not concern any significant contractual duties, damages resulting from the injury of life, limb or health or any warranties and provided that no claims under the Product Liability Act are affected. The same applies for breaches of duty by personally liable employees, legal representatives and performing agents. The same applies for other damages. Apart from that, the legal provisions of §§ 307 section 1, section 2 No. 2, 309 No. 7 German Civil Code shall apply.

According to the current state of the art, the accuracy and/or permanent availability of the data communication via Internet cannot be guaranteed. Insofar, the provider shall be neither liable for the permanent / uninterrupted availability, nor the error-free functioning of the website.

The liability under the Product Liability Act shall remain unaffected.

§ 12 Transport damages

In the event that the customer detects damages to the packaging after receipt of the goods, he shall be obliged to have them confirmed in writing by the transport company or the carrier when accepting the goods. Lindner Intertrade GmbH must be notified in writing, i.e. by mail, fax or e-mail of transport damages which cannot be detected before the unpacking of the goods immediately after receipt and removal of the packaging.

For consumers, the legal regulations of § 476 German Civil Code shall remain unaffected.

For trade customers, the regulation in § 6.8 of these GTC shall apply.
