- Liability for material defects/compensation
The customer is obliged to inspect the goods immediately for transport damage, wrong delivery and defect deviations. Transport damages are to be claimed against the carrier.

The customer shall notify AIRNERGY International GmbH in writing of obvious defects within 2 weeks after receipt of the goods. If the customer is a merchant, the provisions of §§ 377, 378 HGB shall apply.
In the event of a material defect within the meaning of § 434 BGB (German Civil Code), AIRNERGY International GmbH shall be entitled, at its own discretion, to rectify the defect or deliver a replacement. This regulation does not apply if the order is a purchase of consumer goods within the meaning of §§ 474 ff. BGB (German Civil Code) is concerned. If the second attempt at repair or replacement delivery also fails, the customer shall be entitled to withdraw from the contract or reduce the purchase price.
Warranty claims do not exist in particular if

In case of a slightly negligent breach of a primary contractual obligation, AIRNERGY International GmbH shall be liable at most up to the typically foreseeable damage, which usually does not exceed the purchase price of the ordered goods. The liability is limited to damages to the ordered goods.
The limitation of liability with regard to secondary obligations shall also not apply in case of intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by AIRNERGY International GmbH, its legal representatives or vicarious agents.
A liability is also not excluded, as far as it concerns a damage from the injury of the life, the body or the health.

If the customer acts in breach of contract, especially in case of default of payment, AIRNERGY International GmbH shall be entitled to demand surrender of the goods sold. Taking back does not constitute withdrawal from the contract, unless AIRNERGY International GmbH expressly declares this in writing.
The customer is entitled to resell the goods delivered under reservation within the scope of his business operations. He assigns to AIRNERGY International GmbH in advance any claims arising from the resale of the goods or on any other legal grounds in the amount of the claims to which AIRNERGY International GmbH is entitled against him.
