They also apply to all future deliveries, services or offers between the Supplier and JUMA, even if they are not agreed again separately.
b.) Deviating delivery and business conditions of the Supplier or third parties do not apply, even if JUMA does not separately object to their validity in individual cases, unless their validity was expressly agreed. Even if JUMA refers to a letter which contains or refers to the terms and conditions of the Supplier or a third party, this does not constitute an agreement to the validity of those terms and conditions.
2. Conclusion of Contract, Changes of Contract
a.) The contract is concluded by an order from JUMA and the acceptance of this order by the Supplier.
b.) JUMA is entitled to cancel the order if the Supplier does not accept it within a reasonable period, at the latest, however, within a period of two weeks after receipt of the order.

In this case the delivery takes place at the Suppliers warehouse location within the European Union. Upon acceptance, the property rights shall pass to JUMA and a safeguard relationship shall be established between JUMA and the Supplier without further measures, with all rights and obligations associated therewith as agreed upon in a separate warehousing agreement. In addition JUMA has the right to conduct a physical inventory once per month on site.

f.) Deliveries deviating from the contract or the order as well as partial deliveries are only permissible upon prior consent of JUMA.

i.) Force majeure, labor disputes, operational disruptions for which JUMA is not responsible, riots, official measures, pandemics and other unavoidable events release JUMA from the obligation of timely acceptance for the duration of their occurrence. During such events as well as within two weeks after their end, JUMA is entitled - without prejudice to other rights - to withdraw from the contract in whole or in part, insofar as these events are not of insignificant duration and the requirements of JUMA have been considerably reduced.

c.) Legal guarantee claims for defects become time-barred at the earliest 24 months after transfer of risk to the customer JUMA. Defects reported during these periods must be remedied by the Supplier immediately and free of charge, including all ancillary costs, at JUMA's discretion by means of supplementary performance upon JUMA's request. Further legal or contractually agreed claims remain unaffected by this. Typical product wear and tear is not covered by this.
d.) The Supplier guarantees that at least for the duration of his legal guarantee obligation according to letter (c), all spare parts for the product are available.
e.)

f.)

h.) If, in the reasonable opinion of JUMA, products show a significant number of justified complaints, which with a high degree of probability can be traced back to production errors or improper packaging of the Supplier or other circumstances for which the Supplier is responsible, the Supplier must, at the request of JUMA, immediately carry out production, packaging or other improvements for future deliveries in accordance with specifications which are also to be determined at the reasonable discretion of JUMA. Should a significantly more costly packaging become necessary, the Supplier can demand an appropriate adjustment of the purchase price from JUMA.
