(2) We owe only the timely, proper delivery of the goods to the carrier and are not responsible for delays caused by the carrier. A shipping time specified by us is therefore not binding.
(3) For private customers, the risk of accidental destruction, accidental damage or accidental loss of the delivered goods is transferred to the customer at the time the goods are delivered to the customer or the customer defaults on acceptance. In all other cases, the risk passes to the customer when the goods are delivered to the transport company.

If the service is not available within the new delivery period, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract in whole or in part; we will reimburse immediately any consideration which are already provided by the customer. The unavailability of goods or services in this sense particularly includes our suppliers failing to deliver in good time if we have entered into a congruent covering transaction, if we have concluded a congruent hedging transaction, neither we nor our suppliers are at fault and we are not obliged to procure in individual cases. The same applies to the extent that the individual examination of the order before the start of production proves that the ordered part can not be produced technically on common machines.

(a) The retention of title extends to the full value of the products resulting from the processing, mixing or combination of our goods, whereby we are considered the manufacturer. If, during processing or connection with goods of third parties, their ownership rights remain, we acquire co-ownership in proportion of the invoice value of the processed or connected goods. The same applies to the resulting product as to the goods delivered under retention of title.
(b) The customer hereby assigns to us the claims against third parties arising from the resale of the product in its entirety or in the amount of our possible co-ownership share, in accordance with the preceding paragraph. We accept the assignment.

However, if this is the case, we can demand that the customer notify us of the assigned claims and their debtors, provide all information necessary for collection, hand over the associated documents and notify the debtors (third parties) of the assignment.
(1) Rapidfacture guarantees the production of perfect goods according to manufacturing aspects. For this purpose technical details made in drawings such as dimensions and surface properties are decisive. The function of components in use can not be guaranteed because Rapidfacture neither knows the intended use nor is it involved in the design. For damaged or destroyed components (for example, too high forces, corrosion, continuous stress, wrong choice of material) is therefore not guaranteed.
(2) The warranty period from delivery is two years for private customers, twelve months for business customers.
(3) Private customers we ask for a direct examination of the received goods. Obvious defects, wrong deliveries, incorrect or additional quantities must be reported to us in writing within 2 weeks after the occurrence of the defect. Claims for damages of the customer due to obvious material defects of the delivered goods are excluded, if the defect is not reported to us within a period of two weeks after delivery of the goods. In the case of material defects, rectification of defects or delivery of faultless goods may be required. The defective goods have to be returned to Rapidfacture in any case.
(4) If the supplementary performance fails or is unacceptable to the customer or Rapidfacture refuses subsequent performance, the customer is entitled in each case in accordance with applicable law, to withdraw from the contract, to reduce the purchase price or to claim damages or reimbursement of his futile expenses.
(5) Technical data and material prices on our website are reference values, for the correctness of which no liability is assumed. The calculation software of the website serves as a help for rough layout. Rapidfacture does not guarantee the correctness of the results.
(1) Unless otherwise results from these General Terms and Conditions and the subsequent provisions, we will be liable on violation of the contractual and non-contractual duties, according to the relevant legal regulations.
(2) Rapidfacture is liable for damages for whatever legal reason in case of intent or gross negligence. In the case of simple negligence, only for damages resulting from injury to life, limb or health as well as for damages resulting from the violation of a material contractual obligation. In this case, liability is limited to compensation for foreseeable, typically occurring damage. For damages from impossibility and delay Rapidfacture is liable for the violation of cardinal obligations.
(3) These limitations of liability do not apply to fraudulently concealed defects, violation of an additionally agreed quality guarantee or customer claims under the product liability law.
(4) In the case of a breach of duty outside of defects, the purchaser can only resign or terminate if Rapidfacture is responsible for the infringement. A free right of termination of the orderer - in particular gem. §§651, 649 BGB - is excluded. The legal requirements and legal consequences apply.
(5) The data communication via the Internet can not be guaranteed error-free and/or available at any time, according to the current state of the art. In this respect, Rapidfacture is not liable for the continuous or uninterrupted availability of the website and the services offered there.
(6) In case of infringement of foreign property rights by a delivery item according to drawings, models, samples, developments or other information of the customer or using parts provided by the customer, the customer has to indemnify us from claims and to compensate the damages incurred as well as the necessary costs of legal defense as far as the customer is responsible for the breach of duty.
(1) There is no right of withdrawal according to the statutory provisions (§312 g BGB), as all products distributed by us, including all products on our website, are individually manufactured to customer specifications, not prefabricated goods. However, if an order is not yet in production, an order may be canceled at the discretion of Rapidfacture. In this case we ask you to contact us immediately by phone.
(2) Although we only sell custom-made products without right of revocation, the legislator causes us to point out the customary right of withdrawal of private customers for prefabricated goods: You have the right to withdraw from this contract within 14 days without giving reasons. The cancellation period is 14 days from the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not a carrier, has taken possession of the goods. To revoke, you must send us a statement by letter, fax or e-mail about your decision by a clear statement within the cancellation period. You can find our cancellation form here for download
