EXW (Ex Works): The seller‘s responsibility is to make the goods available at their own premises or another agreed-upon location. The buyer is responsible for organizing and paying for the entire shipment process, including loading the goods onto the transport vehicle, arranging for the necessary export licenses or documents,
and handling the customs clearance for export. Once the goods are made available by the seller, the buyer assumes all risks and costs associated with transporting the goods to the final destination.

DAP (Delivered at Place):
The seller is responsible for delivering the goods to the buyer at the agreed upon destination, ready for unloading.

1. The company LPM GmbH reserves the ownership of the delivered goods until full payment of all claims arising from the delivery contract. This also applies to all future deliveries, even if LPM GmbH does not always expressly refer to this. LPM GmbH is entitled to take the purchased item back if the purchaser breaches the contract.

2. The purchaser is obliged, as long as the ownership has not passed to him yet, handle the purchased item with care. In particular, the purchaser is obliged to insure the purchased item at his own expense against theft, fire, and water damage up to the new value. If maintenance and inspection work have to be carried out, the purchaser must carry it out in a timely manner at his own expense. As long as ownership has not yet passed, the purchaser must notify LPM GmbH immediately in writing if the delivered item is seized or subjected to any other intervention by third parties. If the third party is not able to reimburse LPM GmbH for the judicial
and extrajudicial costs of a lawsuit pursuant to Section 771 of the German Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO), the purchaser shall be liable for the resulting loss.

3. B2B The purchaser is entitled to resell the reserved goods in the ordinary course of business. The purchaser hereby assigns to LPM GmbH the claims against the buyer arising from the resale of the reserved goods up to the final invoice amount (including VAT) agreed with LPM GmbH. This assignment applies regardless of
whether the purchased item has been is resold without or after processing. The purchaser remains authorized to collect the claim even after the assignment. LPM GmbH‘s authority to collect the claim itself remains unaffected. However, LPM GmbH will not collect the claim as long as the purchaser meets his payment obligations
from the proceeds received, is not in default of payment, and in particular, no application for the opening of insolvency proceedings has been filed or payment has been suspended.

4. The processing or transformation of the purchased item by the purchaser is always carried out on behalf of and for LPM GmbH. In this case, the purchaser‘s conditional right to the purchased item continues in the converted item. If the purchased item is processed with other items which do not belong to LPM GmbH, LPM
GmbH acquires co-ownership of the new item in relation to the objective value of the purchased item to the other processed items at the time of processing. The same applies to the case of mixing. If the mixing is done in such a way that the purchaser‘s item is to be regarded as the main item, it is agreed that the purchaser will
transfer proportional co-ownership to LPM GmbH and will hold the resulting sole ownership or co-ownership for LPM GmbH. To secure LPM GmbH‘s claims against the purchaser, the purchaser also assigns to LPM GmbH such claims that arise for him against a third party as a result of the connection of the reserved goods
with real property; LPM GmbH hereby accepts this assignment.

5. LPM GmbH undertakes to release the securities to which it is entitled upon the purchaser‘s request, to the extent that their value exceeds the secured claims by more than 20 percent.


Wood is a natural product; its inherent properties, deviations, and characteristics are therefore to be observed at all times. In particular, the buyer must consider its biological, physical, and chemical properties when purchasing and using it. The range of natural color, structural and other differences within a species of wood is part of the natural characteristics of the product and does not constitute a basis for complaint or liability. Expert advice must be sought.


1. Warranty rights of the purchaser require that they have properly fulfilled their obligation to inspect and notify defects in accordance with § 377 of the German Commercial Code (HGB / German UCC).

2. Claims for defects expire 12 months after delivery of the goods supplied by LPM GmbH to the purchaser. The statutory limitation period applies to claims for damages in cases of intent and gross negligence, as well as for violations of life, body and health resulting from an intentional or negligent breach of duty by the user.

3. If the law requires longer periods of limitation in accordance with § 438 para. 1 no. 2 of the German Civil Code (BGB) (buildings and items for buildings), § 445b BGB (recourse claims) and § 634a para. 1 BGB (construction defects), those periods shall apply. Prior to any return of goods, the consent of LPM GmbH must be obtained.

4. If, despite all due care, the delivered goods have a defect that existed at the time of transfer of risk, LPM GmbH will, subject to timely notice of defects, either repair the goods or deliver replacement goods at its discretion. The opportunity for subsequent performance must always be given within a reasonable period of
time. Recourse claims remain unaffected by the above provisions.

5. If subsequent performance fails, the purchaser may, without prejudice to any claims for damages, withdraw from the contract or reduce the compensation.

6. Claims for defects do not exist for only minor deviations from the agreed quality, for only minor impairments of usability, for natural wear and tear, or for damage that occurs after the transfer of risk due to faulty or negligent treatment, excessive stress, unsuitable equipment, faulty construction work, unsuitable subsoil,
or due to special external influences that are not provided for in the contract. It should be noted that wood is a natural product and therefore any samples provided do not guarantee that the delivered goods will match the sample. Samples provided are only intended to illustrate what colors or textures may look like. Differences
may therefore arise due to the characteristics of the wood and do not constitute a defect or reason for liability. If repairs or alterations are made improperly by the purchaser or third parties, there are also no claims for defects arising from such actions and their consequences.

7. Claims of the purchaser for expenses necessary for subsequent performance, in particular transport, travel, labor and material costs, are excluded to the extent that the expenses increase because the goods delivered by LPM GmbH have subsequently been moved to a location other than the purchaser‘s branch, unless the relocation corresponds to their intended use.

8. Claims of recourse of the purchaser against LPM GmbH only exist to the extent that the purchaser has not made any agreements with their buyer that go beyond the legally binding claims for defects. Paragraph 6 shall also apply to the extent of the purchaser´s right of recourse against the supplier.


1. The company LPM GmbH is liable for intent and gross negligence. Liability for the negligent breach of obligations shall only exist insofar as these obligations concern the proper performance of the contract and their violation endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract. LPM GmbH is not liable for the slight negligence of obligations other than those mentioned above.

2. The aforementioned exclusions of liability do not apply in cases of injury to life, body and health. Liability under the Product Liability Act remains unaffected.


1. This contract, all legal relationships between the purchaser and LPM GmbH, and all contracts concluded with LPM GmbH are subject to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany, excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).

2. The language available for the conclusion of the contract is German and English. Translations of these terms and conditions in other languages are for the information of the purchaser only. In case of differences between the language versions, the German text takes precedence.


The place of performance and exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract is the registered office of LPM GmbH at Zeppelinstraße 3, 21337 Lüneburg.


If any provision of these terms and conditions (GTC) is or becomes invalid, this shall not affect the validity of all other provisions. This also applies if the nullity of individual provisions is determined by a court or if the invalidity arises from changes in the law. In place of invalid provisions, the statutory provisions shall apply.
