    The version of our general terms and conditions of business in force at the point in time at which an order is placed alone shall apply for all business relationships between the company Ardap Care GmbH, hereinafter known as Ardap Care GmbH, and the Buyer. We shall not recognise differing terms and conditions unless we have expressly agreed to them in writing in an individual case.

  3. Conclusion of contract / Fulfilment
    All offers submitted by Ardap Care shall be non-binding, in particular in terms of prices, quantity, delivery period and availability. A contract shall only materialise after it has been confirmed in text form and/or when Ardap Care has carried out the order and shall be determined by the content thereof alone. We shall expressly reserve the right to carry out modifications to the packing units, finishes and prices quoted in the catalogue or price list. Printing errors or manifest errors in price lists, offers or order confirmations shall not entitle the Buyer to any sort of claims.
  4. Delivery / Dispatch
    We shall endeavour to deliver consignments as soon as possible. Every contract entered into shall be subject to the availability of the ordered goods. The delivery periods stated shall not be binding. The Buyer shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract, if dispatch has still not commenced within two weeks from the end of the stated delivery period. Order amendments will result in the cancellation of agreed delivery dates and periods, unless agreed otherwise. Delivery periods will be extended as appropriate in instances of force majeure and all other hindrances for which Ardap Care is not responsible and which have a considerable impact upon a delivery, such as strike and lock-out at Ardap Care, its suppliers and its sub-suppliers. In such cases the above-named two-week-period shall commence when the hindrance no longer applies.If nothing has been agreed otherwise, we shall supply ex stores in Bocholt. We shall reserve the right to select the route, whereby in doing so we shall of course chose the lowest cost option. If dispatch regulations stipulate impositions, the Buyer shall bear any additional costs which may be incurred as a result.
  1. Prices / Payment
    It shall be the prices actually quoted including the rate of VAT in force at that time which shall count. The purchase price shall be payable by cash in advance. No discounts on invoiced prices will be given for prompt payment.
  1. Reservation of title
    All goods delivered shall be subject to reservation of title. The delivered goods shall continue to be the property of Ardap Care GmbH until payment has been made for them in full. Should the Buyer have resold the goods prior to having paid for item in full, his claims against the third party buyer shall be regarded as having been assigned to Ardap Care GmbH. Cheques shall only be regarded as payment when they have been cashed in full.
  2. Warranty
    Manifest defects and incorrect deliveries must be reported immediately following receipt of the goods, and within 8 working days from delivery at the latest. Returns shall be subject to our consent and must be free of charge for us. We can only be held liable for up to the value of the goods. The warranty for concealed defects shall be 12 months. No other claims, in particular, such as for lost profit and claims asserted on the basis of a breach of contract (other than by delay or impossibility) for indirect losses shall be admitted. The transport risk shall be borne by the consignee, to this end we shall assign all our claims against the transport firm concerned over to the party contracting him/consignee.
