8. transport damages
The following applies to consumers: If goods are delivered with obvious transport damage, please complain about such defects as soon as possible to the delivery company and contact us immediately. Failure to make a complaint or contact us has no consequences for your legal claims and their enforcement, especially your warranty rights. However, they help us to be able to assert our own claims against the carrier or the transport insurance.
The following shall apply to entrepreneurs: The risk of accidental loss and accidental deterioration shall pass to you as soon as we have delivered the item to the forwarding agent, the carrier or the person or institution otherwise designated to carry out the shipment. Among merchants, the obligation to inspect and give notice of defects regulated in § 377 HGB (German Commercial Code) shall apply. If you fail to give notice of defects as stipulated therein, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved, unless the defect was not recognizable during the inspection. This shall not apply if we have fraudulently concealed a defect.

Unless otherwise expressly agreed below, the statutory liability for defects shall apply.
In the case of the purchase of used goods by consumers, the following shall apply: if the defect occurs after the expiry of one year from the delivery of the goods, the claims for defects shall be excluded. Defects that occur within one year from delivery of the goods can be claimed within the statutory limitation period of two years from delivery of the goods.
For entrepreneurs, the limitation period for claims for defects in newly manufactured goods is one year from the transfer of risk. The sale of used goods is subject to the exclusion of any warranty. The statutory limitation periods for the right of recourse according to § 445a BGB remain unaffected.
With respect to entrepreneurs, only our own specifications and the manufacturer's product descriptions included in the contract shall be deemed to be an agreement on the quality of the goods; we shall not assume any liability for public statements by the manufacturer or other advertising statements.
If the delivered item is defective, we shall initially provide a warranty to entrepreneurs, at our discretion, by rectifying the defect (subsequent improvement) or by delivering an item free of defects (replacement delivery).
The above restrictions and shortening of time limits shall not apply to claims based on damage caused by us, our legal representatives or vicarious agents in the following cases
in case of injury to life, body or health
in case of intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty as well as fraudulent intent
in the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, the fulfillment of which is a prerequisite for the proper execution of the contract and the observance of which the contractual partner may regularly rely on (cardinal obligations)
within the scope of a warranty promise, if agreed upon
insofar as the scope of application of the Product Liability Act is opened.
