- for new goods, the limitation period for defects shall be one year from transfer of risk

- the limitation period shall not recommence, if a replacement delivery is carried out within the scope of liability for defects.
8.2 For consumers the limitation period for claims for defects shall be
- for new goods, two years from delivery of goods to the Customer
- for used goods, one year from delivery of goods to the Customer with the limitation of Section .3.
For entrepreneurs and consumers, the aforementioned limitations of liability and the restrictions of limitation periods in Section 7.1 and Section 7.2 do not refer to claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses that the buyer may assert due to statutory provisions for defects according to Section 8.
Furthermore, for entrepreneurs the statuary limitation periods for recourse claims pursuant to Section 478 of the German Civil Code (BGB) remain unaffected. The same shall apply for entrepreneurs and consumers in the event of wilful intent or gross negligence and fraudulent concealment of a defect.

If the Client is a consumer, the forwarding agent has to be immediately notified of any obvious transport damages and the Seller be informed accordingly. Should the Client fail to comply therewith, this shall not affect his/her statutory or contractual claims for defects.
Should supplementary performance be rendered by means of replacement delivery, the Client is obliged to resend the initially delivered goods to the Seller within 30 days at the Seller's expense. For return shipment of deficient goods statuary provisions shall apply.
The Seller shall be liable for any contractual and quasi-contractual claims and for claims of liability in tort regarding damages and effort compensation as follows:
The Seller shall face unlimited liability regardless of the legal ground
- in case of intent or gross negligence,
- in case of injuries of life, body or health resulting from intent or negligence,
- in case of a promise of guarantee, unless otherwise provided,
- in case of liability resulting from mandatory statutory provisions such as the product-liability-law.
Provided that the Seller negligently infringes an essential contractual duty, the liability to pay damages shall be limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage, unless unlimited liability applies pursuant to Section 8.1. Essential significant contractual obligations are obligations the contract imposes on the Seller according to its content to meet the purpose of the contract and whose fulfillment is essential for the due and proper implementation of the contract and on the fulfillment of which the Client can regularly rely.
9.3 For the rest the Seller's liability is excluded.
The aforementioned provisions on liability apply also for the Seller's liability regarding his legal representatives and vicarious agents.
