Terms and Conditions
of ISOCELL GmbH
The following terms of delivery and payment constitute the principal part of every contract entered into with ISOCELL GmbH now and in the future. Differing general terms and conditions specified by partners of ISOCELL GmbH are not considered as being included and do apply. Should the contract partner be a domestic consumer, differing terms apply only in as far as the laws governing consumer rights do not dictate otherwise.
2. Delivery date and deadline
Delivery times and dates are not binding unless expressly declared as ‘set dates’. Claims for damages may not be made as a result of delivery delays.
3. Delivery and transfer of risk
The obligation to supply is suspended for such periods as the buyer is in arrears with payment for the product or with payments in connection with other legal transactions. Delivery of the goods is made in the trade packing ex works or branch, for account of and at the risk of the buyer. Transfer of risk takes place when the goods are handed over to the forwarder or when the goods are loaded onto the transport vehicle provided. Transport damage is therefore always the responsibility of the acceptor. Prices agreed as excluding delivery do not include loading charges. After receipt an immediate inspection of the goods must take place to ensure that delivery has been duly carried out and that the goods are conform to their description. Notice of complaints must be given in writing immediately and without delay to avoid loss of title.
The customer undertakes to comply with the formalities applicable to handover on the construction site or other delivery address. Should none be present the seller has the right to unload the goods on the account of the buyer and at the buyer’s risk and to deposit the goods so fulfilling the contract.
5. Payment and price
All prices are subject to change. Payments must always be made within 8 days of date of invoice. Receipt of the invoice has no relevance to the date when the payment is due. If the buyer is in arrears with payment default interest at the rate of interest for an unsecured business loan of at least 11.2% p.a. becomes payable. All costs including out-of court costs for assertion of claims as well as those incurred through a debt collection agency are charged to the customer at the rates set out in these conditions.
6. Proprietary rights and assignment of claims
Until full payment has been received all goods delivered remain the property of ISOCELL GmbH. If the buyer is in arrears with payment, ISOCELL GmbH is entitled, without withdrawal from the contract, to demand the return of the goods and to collect the same. In the event that the goods delivered have already been sold or processed before full payment has been made – either for the goods or for other transactions – the customer herewith irrevocably surrenders those sums of money resulting from the sale or use of the goods and payable to him by his own customer / buyers to the amount of his obligations to ISOCELL GmbH. This surrender becomes effective with its acceptance by ISOCELL GmbH.

Decisions concerning the use and application of the goods are made at the customer’s own risk.
Indications made by ISOCELL GmbH relating to quantities or areas for coverage etc. are not contractually binding. Such values may differ considerably due to local conditions, the actual installation, methods of application etc.
In the event of duly notified defects ISOCELL GmbH will, as it chooses, fulfil warranty obligations in the form of improvement, exchange for faultless goods, price reduction or cancellation of the contract and credit the amount of the purchase price. The customer is permitted to demand a price reduction or nullification of the sale only after giving written notice of this intention if ISOCELL GmbH does not provide improvement or exchange of the goods within an appropriate period.
