7.3. The commencement of the delivery period stated by us presupposes that the customer provides all information, documents and items to be provided by them as agreed. The delivery period shall be deemed to have been met if the delivery item has left our works or our warehouse by the time the period comes to an end or if we have notified the customer that the delivery item is ready for dis- patch.
7.4. The delivery period shall be extended appropriately in the event of measures within the scope of industrial disputes, in particular strikes and lockouts or official requirements or orders, and in the event of unforeseen obstacles which are beyond our control occurring, insofar as such obstacles de- monstrably have a considerable influence on the completion or delivery of the item to be delivered. This shall also apply if the circumstances occur during delivery.
7.5. The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration of the items to be delivered shall pass to the customer upon handover to the forwarding agent, the carrier or the persons otherwise desig- nated to fulfil the shipment. Handover is effective if the customer is in default of acceptance. Further- more, the risk for items to be delivered shall pass to the customer upon receipt of the notification that the item is ready for dispatch.
7.6. In the absence of an explicit agreement to the contrary, the transport route, type and means of shipment shall be at our discretion, without any guarantee of the fastest and cheapest mode of trans- portation. The customer’s interests are appropriately taken into account. On request, and at the cus- tomer’s expense, we will insure the goods to be delivered against theft, breakage, transport, frost, fire and water damage as well as other risks to be named by the customer, insofar as this is possible.
7.7. If dispatch is delayed at the customer’s request, we shall charge the costs incurred for storage, starting one month after notification of the item being ready for dispatch.
8.1. All prices are net, without taking into account any discounts agreed with the customer, any cash discounts or other reductions, and are in euros from the loading station of Winkels Interior Design Ex- hibition GmbH, plus any applicable VAT.
8.2. Any discounts or freight reimbursements granted are cancelled in the event of judicial or out-of- court settlement proceedings, insolvency or if the customer defaults on payment for more than 2 months.
8.3. Packaging, freight and insurance will be charged separately.
8.4. If there is a contractual obligation which is not a continuing obligation, we shall be entitled to change the prices if there have been any cost reductions or cost increases since the contract was con- cluded. If there is a price increase, this shall not apply if performance by us takes place within four months of the contract being concluded.
8.5. Payments in currencies other than euro will be converted based on the official exchange rate, or in the absence thereof, based on the market rate on the day it is credited into our account. The cus- tomer shall bear any conversion costs and the credit note in euros.
8.6. Payments by the customer shall first be credited against the debt owed; if several debts are owed, payment shall be made against the debt which offers us the lower security; if there are several debts of equal security, payment shall be made against the debt which is more onerous for the cus- tomer; if there are several debts that are equally onerous, payment shall be made against the older debt; and, if there are debts of equal age, payment shall be made against each debt proportionately. If costs and interest have already been incurred, payment shall first be made against costs, then against the interest and finally against the main good or service.
8.7. Cheques shall only be accepted by special agreement and only on account of performance, where all collection and discount charges are charged. Payment shall not be deemed to have been made un- til the cheque has been cashed or the amount of the cheque or bill of exchange has been credited without reservation and in a final way.
