This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.

We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e. through e-mail communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

Büschel Connecting Systems GmbH

Emil-Mayer-Strasse 10
72461 Albstadt
Germany

Geschäftsführer
Jochen Kauffmann

Telephone: +49 (0) 7432 98426 0
Email: info@bueschel.com

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this Data Protection Declaration. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information about, blockage, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified, blocked or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.”

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.” The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

TCB

Terms & Conditions of Business

Delivery & Payment Terms

1. Area of application

These Delivery & Payment Terms apply to the full range of business transactions with the ordering party, even if no further reference is made to them in subsequent business transactions. The purchasing terms of the ordering party are expressly excluded by this They only apply if we have agreed with you in writing; no implicit agreement from ourselves proceeds from the order acceptance document or from delivery. These Delivery & Payment Terms do not apply to private consumers.

2. Conclusion of contract, condition of goods

Our offers shall be subject to change. Contracts only come into force with our written order confirmation, and the content of the contract text is binding. If we do not issue an order confirmation, the delivery contract enters into force through delivery by ourselves. Descriptions and illustrations of our goods are only approximate in nature. We reserve the right to make modifications to our goods up until the time of delivery, in particular to make technical modifications in the context of our product support policy, although these must not adversely affect the interests of the ordering party to an unreasonable extent.

3. Exclusion of cancellation of return of goods

The cancellation of or amendment to concluded contracts requires our express consent.
The return of supplied goods is only permissible with our prior written consent.

4. Transfer of risk, transport

Delivery is ex-factory or ex-stock. However, risk transfers to the ordering party as soon as we have handed over the goods to the transport company, and no later than the time our goods leave the factory or the warehouse. We are entitled but - also in the case of international deliveries - not obliged to conclude a transport insurance policy. In the event of damage to or loss of goods while in transit, the ordering party must issue an incident report to the transport company without delay. If the ordering party has not issued a conflicting set of written instructions, we are entitled to select the mode of transport, the transport route and the transport insurance policy without being responsible for selecting the fastest or the least expensive options available.

5. Partial deliveries

We are entitled to satisfy orders through partial deliveries, each of which is treated as an autonomous delivery, and these shall be payable separately in accordance with the payment due dates defined in Clause 8.If the payment of a partial delivery is delayed, we can withhold completion of the rest of the order.

6. Delivery lead time

Details of delivery lead times are not binding, even if these are included in our order confirmation, unless we specifically stipulate that they are binding in nature. The delivery lead time starts on the date of our order confirmation, but not before clarification of all details of the order, in particular not before provision of the documents, approvals, and releases to be obtained by the ordering party, to occur prior to receipt of the agreed downpayment.The deliver time commitment is honored if the goods are dispatched on schedule, or if their readiness for delivery is communicated. If delivery is obstructed by force majeure, this extends the delivery time indefinitely, for the duration of that incident plus a commensurate delivery lead time thereafter. Force majeure comprises unforeseeable circumstances that reasonably or necessarily hinder us from making delivery, examples being delivery delays from upstream suppliers, labor disputes, government measures, shortages of raw materials or energy, operational or transportation problems of all kinds etc. If these circumstances prevail for longer than four months, we have the right to withdraw from the contract. On demand from the ordering party, we are obliged to explain whether we intend to withdraw from delivery, or to supply goods within a reasonable period of time yet to be defined. If we are responsible for missing a non-binding delivery time, we shall not deemed to be in arrears until the ordering party has set us a period of grace in writing of at least 30 days in length, and if this expires without our achieving the desired outcome. After that, the ordering party is entitled to withdraw from the contract. Compensation claims are limited to 5% of the value of the overdue delivery consignment, and at least to the level of damages typically incurred.

7. Price

The ordering party is obliged to pay the list price valid on the date of delivery. If at variance to this a defined price has been agreed, we are nonetheless entitled to bill the list price valid on the date of delivery. If the price increase is more than 5% of the agreed price, the ordering party is entitled within 14 days of receiving notification of that price increase to withdraw from the contract by serving us written notice to that effect. Our prices are all quoted in EURO ex-factory or, where applicable, ex-stock. The quantity defined by us or the weight determined by ourselves shall form the basis for billing. Verification that this determination was incorrect is permitted. Value-added tax and dispatch costs, in particular freight, transport insurance, customs and customs clearance costs as well as the costs of packaging shall be charged to the ordering party, even if not itemized separately.

8. Payment

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, our invoices must be paid within 30 days net of the date of invoice. For payments made within 10 days of the date of invoice, we grant a prompt payment discount of 2%. Payments received are always offset against the oldest invoice(s). We are not obliged to accept bills of exchange. In cases where we accept other forms of payment than cash and interbank transfers, this only occurs in respect of direct payment for specific items. All payments must be made to us without deductions for related charges. The ordering party must pay bank charges, bill discounts and withdrawal fees even when no specific agreement to this effect is in place. If the net payment target is exceeded, we have the right by no later than the 31st day following receipt of an invoice or equivalent payment demand, and without the need for a reminder, to apply interest charges of 8% above the Deutsche Bundesbank base rate. If the financial situation of the ordering party should worsen significantly after the countersigning of this contract, or if we only become aware of an existing decline in the financial fortunes of an ordering party after conclusion of the contract, we are entitled to apply our choice of pre-payment or provision of some form of security. If this demand is not met, we then have the right after a commensurate period of remedial notice to refuse to honor our obligations under this contract. The ordering party is not entitled to offset any counter-demands that we may contest and that are not legally founded from us against us, nor can the ordering party apply a right of retention over title to goods. Payment to our representatives and employees is only effective on presentation of a written authority to collect.

9. Bespoke production

For all goods that we manufacture to the specific requirements, specifications etc. of the ordering party, that party bears sole responsibility for the accuracy of those documents. The ordering party is obliged to indemnify us against all claims that third parties may raise against us and/or against companies that may be appointed by ourselves arising on the grounds of commercial protection rights or copyright protection. Bespoke production items may be supplied in quantities to within 10% +/- those contractually agreed, without infringing the contract. The price we then request is increased or decreased accordingly. Details must be agreed separately.

10. Reservation of title

The goods supplied remain our property until the ordering party has settled all receivables in full that we may have now and in future against that party. The ordering party is entitled to process the goods to which we have reserved the title in the context of normal business operations, unless that party is in payment arrears or has stopped making payments. In cases where processing has already been agreed that we retain a partial title to the new goods that emerge from that processing operation, where the value of those different and process goods is still commensurate to the value of the original goods to which we reserved title. The ordering party shall store the new goods that emerge from further processing on our behalf.The same applies if the ordering party combines the goods to which we have reserved title with other objects, or installs them in other equipment. The ordering party is entitled to sell the goods to which we have reserved title or to which we hold partial title within the context of normal business operations, unless that party is in payment arrears or has ceased to make payments. The ordering party is not entitled to pledge the goods, nor to use them as collateral. Any sale to a foreign country requires our prior consent. If the ordering party sells reserved goods, he also transfers to his customers all of our receivables relating to the rights associated with sale until final payment is made in full, together with all ancillary rights, securities and reservations of proprietary rights. We can demand that the ordering party communicates this transfer to his customers, and provides us with all information and documentation required for us to claim payments. However, the ordering party can pull in the receivables settled with us unless he is in payment arrears or has ceased to make payments. If the receivables of the ordering party are paid into a current account following the sales of our reserved goods, he is obliged to transfer to us the monies due to us from that account and/or the recognized account to the level to which receivables from the onward sale of our reserved goods are contained. If we only hold partial title to the goods sold, the transfer of funds described above shall only be to the value of our partial title to those goods. If goods to which we have reserved the title, or to which we hold partial title, are sold together with other goods to a total prices, the aforementioned cession or transfer only takes place to the invoice value equivalent of our reserved title, or to the value of our partial title.If the value of reserved goods together with the value of collateral accorded to us by the ordering party exceeds our receivables by more than 20%, we are obliged to release those items when called upon to do so by the ordering party. If the ordering party gets into payment arrears or ceases to make payments, we have the right to demand the return of the goods to which we have reserved the title. Withdrawal from the contract cannot take place unless we announce our intention to do so in writing.

11. Defects

We are only obliged to provide warranty cover in respect of defects in our goods if the ordering party notifies us of these in writing immediately, and within no later than 10 days of receipt of goods, or in respect of concealed defects, within 10 days of these being detected. We are not liable for any defects that are not reported within these stipulated times. Our liability is restricted to our supplying free of charge fully operational replacements for defective goods. When called upon to do so, the ordering party can be required to submit the defective goods or a sample of them to us for inspection. If the replacement delivery is also unsuitable, if it is rejected by ourselves, or if special circumstances prevail that after careful evaluation of the interests of both parties justify the immediate application of legal measures, or if a situation is not remedied within a legally commensurate period of time stipulated by the ordering party, then the ordering party is entitled to withdraw from the contract, or to demand a reduction in the purchase price.Compensation claims are restricted to the kind of damages typically incurred and/or foreseeable.

12. Compensation claims

Compensation claims from the ordering party arising from a violation of an obligation, from unauthorized action or from other grounds, are excluded, except in cases of deliberate intent, gross negligence, infringement of a primary fulfillment obligation, the adoption of a procurement risk or the existence of a warranty arrangement, or where we are found to be fully liable in accordance with the stipulations of the German Product Liability Act (Produkthaftpflichtgesetz), or we are culpably responsible for damages that may lead to or proceed from injury to life, limb or health of one or more individuals. In all cases, compensation claims are limited to the kind of damages that can typically be foreseen.

13. Choice of law, place of execution, place of jurisdiction

The legal relationships between the ordering party and ourselves are subject solely to German Law. The place of execution for the services of both parties to contract is the company head office location of BCS. The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes is the Court responsible for BCS, provided that the ordering party is a business person, a legal entity under the terms of public-sector law, or where there is no general place of jurisdiction within the country concerned. BCS is however entitled to instead press charges at the head office location of the ordering party.
