Regulations of the purchaser, which are stated in order forms, confirmations of orders etc., and which are contradictory to our terms and conditions are not accepted by our accepting the order. Our terms and conditions are applicable for all future legal relations with the customers, even if they are not expressly agreed upon when future contracts are concluded. Oral declarations and arrangements require our written confirmation to come into force. A contract becomes effective only when the order was confirmed by us in writing.
