    1. scopeREPAIR reserves this Ownership of goods delivered on the basis of a sales contract until all claims from the business relationship with the customer have been paid in full. In the case of a current account, the reserved property serves as security for the balance claim by scopeREPAIR.
    2. As long as the customer is not in default of payment towards scopeREPAIR or any other significant deterioration in his financial situation or his credit unworthiness occurs, he may own the property of sell scopeREPAIR reserved goods in the normal course of business under normal conditions. To secure all claims of scopeREPAIR from the business relationship with the customer, the customer already now assigns to scopeREPAIR all claims in the amount of the final invoice amount (including VAT) that arise from the resale to its customers or third parties. ScopeREPAIR accepts this assignment. The customer is authorized to collect these claims even after they have been assigned. scopeREPAIR’s authority to collect the claims itself remains unaffected by this; however, scopeREPAIR undertakes not to collect the claims as long as the customer is not in default of payment or any other significant deterioration in his financial situation or his creditworthiness does not occur. Otherwise, scopeREPAIR can, in these cases, demand that the customer disclose the claims assigned to scopeREPAIR and their debtors, provide all information required for collection, hand over the associated documents and notify the debtors (third parties) of the assignment.

    1. In the context of sales contracts, warranty claims of the customer require that he comply with his statutory inspection and complaint obligations according to § 377 HGB.
    2. With regard to the type, scope and condition of the goods, only the information given in the order confirmation is applicable en decisive. Other public statements by scopeREPAIR are irrelevant for the agreed quality of the goods. Subjective color impressions during endoscopy on a video camera system / video endoscope do not represent a defect. The spare parts used by scopeREPAIR are matched to the respective device types and their function, even if these are not exclusively original spare parts from the device manufacturer. Their use therefore does not constitute a defect either.
    3. For defects recognized by scopeREPAIR, scopeREPAIR provides supplementary performance at its own discretion by removing the defect (subsequent improvement) or by delivering a defect-free item (replacement delivery). scopeREPAIR’s statutory right of refusal remains unaffected.
    4. If a total of three subsequent improvements or replacement deliveries fail, the customer can withdraw from the contract or demand a reduction in the purchase price / remuneration and, if there is a contract for work, remove the defect himself and demand reimbursement of the necessary expenses. The obligation to notify in accordance with § 8 Paragraph 1 remains in the case of purchase contracts for goods in the event that the subsequent performance fails.
    5. For the parts installed to remedy the defect, the customer can assert warranty claims on the basis of the purchase contract for the goods or the work contract for the repair device until the expiry of the warranty period. A new start of the limitation period is not associated with the implementation of a warranty measure for the goods or the repair device.
    6. Replaced parts become the property of scopeREPAIR.
    7. The warranty period is twelve months from delivery of the object of purchase or six months from acceptance of the repair device. The warranty for components that were renewed as part of the repair of optical systems is excluded. The shortening of the limitation period does not apply to the following claims according to § 9.
  9. Liability
    1. scopeREPAIR is only liable for damages – regardless of the legal reason – in the event of willful intent and gross negligence. However, ScopeREPAIR is also liable in the event of simple negligence for damage resulting from
      • injury to life, body or health;
      • the breach of an essential contractual obligation; in this case, however, scopeREPAIR’s liability is limited to the replacement of the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
    2. The above limitations of liability do not apply if scopeREPAIR has fraudulently concealed a defect or has assumed a guarantee. The same applies to customer claims under the Product Liability Act
    3. Insofar as scopeREPAIR’s liability is excluded or limited, this also applies to the liability of its legal representatives, employees and vicarious agents.
  10. General, place of fulfillment, place of jurisdiction, applicable law
    1. The above provisions fully reflect the agreements made. There are no side agreements. Changes and additions must be in writing. This also applies to changes to this written form requirement.
    2. Should individual provisions be or become wholly or partially void or ineffective, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. Statutory law (Section 306 (2) BGB) replaces provisions that are not included in the contract or are ineffective. If such statutory law is not available for the respective case (loophole) or would lead to an intolerable result, the parties will enter into negotiations to replace the non-included or ineffective provision with an effective provision that comes as close as possible economically to it. Both parties undertake to make the necessary declarations of intent.
    3. The place of performance for all contractual obligations is Schwarzenbek.
    4. The place of jurisdiction for merchants, legal entities under public law or special funds under public law is Hamburg. If a legal dispute falls within the jurisdiction of the local courts, the jurisdiction of the Hamburg-Mitte district court is agreed.
    5. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies to the exclusion of all international and supranational (contractual) legal systems, in particular the UN Sales law.
