8. The processing or transformation of the purchased item by the customer is always carried out for us. If the purchased item is processed with other items that do not belong to us, we acquire co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the value of the purchased item (final invoice amount, including VAT / VAT) to the other processed items at the time of processing.

1. The seller guarantees that the object of purchase is free of defects in material and workmanship, but that the object of purchase is not suitable for a specific purpose. Checking and deciding this is the sole responsibility of the buyer.

2. If there is a defect in the purchased item, the customer is entitled to choose whether to remedy the defect or to deliver a new, defect-free item. In the event of rectification of the defect or replacement delivery, we are obliged to bear all expenses required for the purpose of supplementary performance, in particular transport, travel, labor and material costs, unless these increase due to the fact that the object of purchase is located at a location other than the place of performance was spent.

8. The limitation period for claims for defects is 24 months (for merchants within the meaning of the HGB: 12 ​​months), calculated from the transfer of risk.

This applies in particular to claims for damages arising from fault at the conclusion of the contract, due to other breaches of duty or due to tortious claims for compensation for property damage in accordance with § 823 BGB.

2. The limitation according to Paragraph (1) also applies if the customer demands reimbursement of useless expenses instead of a claim for compensation for the damage.
