I. Scope of Application

  1. The following General Terms and Conditions apply to all contracts concluded in writing, verbally, or any other form between ar engineers GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "ar engineers") and its customers (hereinafter "Customer" or respectively "Purchaser"). The Customer's General Terms and Conditions are expressly excluded as subject matter of the contract even if ar engineers does not expressly object to such. In the event that the Customer wishes that the following General Terms and Conditions do not apply, the Customer must inform ar engineers of this in advance in writing.
  2. Deviations from the terms and conditions listed here are valid only if ar engineers consented to such in writing prior to acceptance of the order.

II. Written form

Any and all agreements must be recorded in written form. Verbal agreements are valid only if they are confirmed in writing. The same applies to supplementary agreements and assurances as well as subsequent amendments to the contract, including the agreement to waive the requirement of written form.

III. Binding order

Cost estimates and offers by ar engineers are non-binding and without obligation. A contract is created only upon the written order confirmation of ar engineers.

IV. Performance

The written order confirmation by ar engineers and its enclosures determine the scope of the performance to be provided by ar engineers. ar engineers shall provide performance by way of salaried or freelance employees, which the Customer acknowledges and accepts.

V. Delivery time

  1. Binding delivery times require the express, written agreement of both contractual parties.
  2. Compliance with the delivery time requires the fulfillment of the Purchaser's obligation to participate. In the event that the Purchaser defaults in its obligation to participate, the delivery time is extended by the duration of the Purchaser's default without further notice.
  3. The delivery time also changes upon occurrence of unforeseen obstacles that could not be averted despite reasonable care according to the circumstances of the specific event. ar engineers shall immediately inform its Customers of such obstacles.
  4. The delivery time for the complete order must be renegotiated in the event of changes or amendments of the original, binding scope of services.

The Customer specifically assures that all participation on the part of the Customer or its vicarious agents shall be provided in a timely manner and free of charge to ar engineers.

VII. Acceptance

  1. Acceptance of the provided performance shall occur by way of the Purchaser's written declaration. The Purchaser shall inspect the performance within 10 days after handover and declare acceptance in writing.
  2. The existence of possible defects does not authorize the Purchaser's refusal of acceptance if the defects can be rectified. In this case, the Purchaser shall list the defects in the acceptance report with a reference for rectification.
  3. If the Purchaser does not declare acceptance within 10 days after receipt of the performance from ar engineers or refuses acceptance pursuant to Sec. VIII (1), ar engineers is authorized to demand such declaration within a deadline of 2 weeks.

VIII. Guarantee

  1. The Purchaser shall report obvious deviations from the contractually negotiated condition of the performance delivered by ar engineers that are recognizable with proper inspection and review in writing as defects within 10 days of receipt. The Customer shall report non-obvious deviations that are not discernible with proper inspection within 7 days after manifestation of such deviations. In case the time limits for complaints are exceeded, a guarantee for the respective defects is void.

The Customer is entitled to withdraw from the contract or request reduction after the second failed rectification attempt. If the Purchaser wishes to request compensation for damages instead of performance or opts to handle rectification itself, the rectification is deemed to have failed only after the second unsuccessful attempt. The statutory cases of dispensability and setting of a deadline remain unaffected. Withdrawal based on an immaterial defect is excluded.

IX. Liability

In cases of gross negligence, the liability of ar engineers is also limited to the foreseeable damage typical for the type of contract if none of the exceptions listed in clause 2 of this paragraph apply. Liability for damages caused by the contractual object to the contractual partner's legal assets, e.g. damages to other objects, is fully excluded unless such damage is caused by intent or gross negligence or liability is based on an injury to life, body, or health.
  2. If a liability of any kind arises for ar engineers in consideration of the limitation of liability as set forth in the above paragraph, such liability is limited to 10% of the respective invoice value insofar as such does not pertain to an injury to life, body, or health. Default claims are limited to 0.5% of the order value per week of delivery time delay, or to a maximum of 10 % of the respective order value.
