Any orders as well as additional and subsequent orders are only valid in written form. Orders must be confirmed by the supplier within 5 working days unless other confirmation periods are indicated on the respective document. If the confirmation deadline is not met by the supplier, the purchaser is entitled to cancel the order. The delivery date indicated on the order document is calculated based on the date of order. If the delivery arrives incompletely  or if the delivery does not arrive by the prescribed date, the purchaser is entitled to assert his or her rights without extending the final delivery deadline. The reasons for the delivery delay as well as the new delivery date must be communicated in writing. If the purchaser extends the final delivery deadline and the delivery procedure is unsuccessful, the purchaser may withdraw from the contract and make a covering purchase at the expense of the seller. If the delivery delay was caused by an act of God, the purchaser may completely or partly withdraw from the contract. In this case, the seller has not right to raise any claims.
