1 BASIC AGREEMENT
 The following agreement, in addition to the legal regulations, sets forth the terms of business between Helios-Models-Lighting UG (in the following named as „H-M-L“) and the customer concerning delivery and services and are elemental to all offers and contracts. Furthermore the customer is herewith given the instructions and information required by law. By placing an order, but at least with acceptance of the delivery or service, the customer aknowledges these terms and conditions. Terms and conditions suggested by the customer are not valid, except if aknowlegded by H-M-L in writing.
2 OFFER AND CONTRACT FINALIZATION
 2.1 All advertised products are individual products. The presentation oft the products of H-M-L through the internet is not binding and not a binding offer for a contract finalization. Orders have to be aknowledged in writing. Delivery of the goods with delivery note and/or invoice is also a valid aknowledgment. Changes, additions or supplements must also be made in writing. 2.2 The customer provides H-M-L with the required appropriate information, texts, drawings, illustrations, dimensions, weights or other performance data and files for the individual design of the product at least immediately after finalizing the contract in writing or electronic form. H-M-L does not examine the transmitted data for accurate content and is therefore not to be held liable for any occuring errors. 2.3 The customer is obliged not to transmit any data of which content might violate the rights of third parties (mainly copyrights, naming rights and trademarks) or offend existing laws. The customer explicitly releases H-M-L of any claims by third parties made in this context. This also includes expenses for required legal representation caused in this context. Should H-M-L create any texts, drawings, graphics and designs in the course of the individual design for the customer, these are subject to copyright. Utilization, reproduction or alteration of single parts or complete content is not allowed without explicit approval of H-M-L. 2.4 If not agreed otherwise, H-M-L passes on a temporal unlimited right of use of the copyrighted products constructed for the customer by H-M-L. The passing of the right of use depends on the condition precedent to the complete payment of the agreed purchase price.
3 RETENTION OF TITLE
 3 Retention of Title 3.1 Until the fulfillment of all demands (including all current account balance claims of the provider against the customer presently or in future), the products delivered by H-M-L remain property of H-M-L (in the following: goods subject of retention of title). The customer is entitled to process and dispose of the goods subject of retention of title through proper business connections, as long as he is not delayed in payment. Pledge or trust agreement is illegitimate. 3.2 In case of access on the goods subject of retention of title by third parties, the customer will adress the property of H-M-L and immediately inform H-M-L in advance by phone, afterwards thoroughly in writing in the course of one day..
4 MANUFACTURERS AGREEMENT
 4.1 The further processing, reconstruction or improving of the goods delivered by the customer is solely performed by H-M-L as contractor. 4.2 The customer expressly declares, that he is the owner of the delivered goods.
5 DELIVERY AND DELIVERY TIMES
 5.1 Deliveries are made within the german federal territory, the EU (intra-trade) and outside the EU (extra-trade). 5.2 The sales tax will only be deducted on deliveries within the EU (intra-trade) by statement of sales tax identification number of the customer or by given proof of an entry certificate in the sense of § 17a Abs.2 Nr.2 UStDV and generally deducted on deliveries outside the EU (extra-trade). 5.3 Binding delivery dates or deadlines are due to writing agreements. Not keeping up to delivery dates or deadlines by H-M-L does not entitle the customer to avoid of contract or claim for compensation, if the non-compliance occured due to circumstances that are independent from the willing of H-M-L (change requests of the customer, delivery delays of our suppliers, strikes, business interruption and the like). Circumstances independent from the will of H-M-L which make a delivery impossible, particularly the non fulfillment of delivery commitments of our suppliers due to which H-M-L has submitted the offer or sold the product, release us from performance of the contract. H-M-L is entitled to perform partial deliveries, in which every partial delivery is legally subject to an indipendent contract. 5.4 Delivery takes place at the expense of the customer. The risk of random sinking and decline of the product is borne by the customer as soon as the product is handed over to the first transport carrier (passage of risk). This is also valid in case of delivery to a receiver determined by the customer as well as a delivery free domicile (postage free delivery). The product will be insured against transport damage by H-M-L on customer´s request. The customer sets the amount of the insurance benefit. The insurance by H-M-L does not equal H-M-L taking the risk of loss for the transport.

Justified defects must be instantly addressed to H-M-L by the customer in writing, at least however within one week from the acceptance of delivery. The duration of warranty is two years. It begins with the arrival of delivery at the customer. The claim on warranty expires if the defect was caused by improper usage, application, overuse, if the product was taken in operation improperly or if constructional changes were made on the acquired product. It also expires, if the defect on the goods to process provided by the customer was not evidently caused by H-M-L. If a defect shows after 6 month since acceptance of delivery, the customer has to furnish proof of the goods beeing damaged on passage of risk.

11 PLACE OF FULFILMENT, LEGAL DOMICILE AND APPLICABLE LAW
 Place of fulfilment and applicable law is Fulda. Place of fulfilment for all services from existing business relations with the vendor as well as legal domicile is place of business of H-M-L, if the customer is not consumer but merchant, corporate body under public law or special fund under public law. The same applies if the customer has no domestic place of general jurisdiction in Germany or if the residence or general abidance is unknown by the time of institution of legal proceedings. The capacity to also invoke the court in another place of jurisdiction will remain unaffected. The terms under cipher 11 do not affect stringent regulations of the state law in which the customer has his general abidance, if the customer has arranged a sales contract which cannot be seen as belonging to professional or commercial activities of the same (consumer contract) and if the customer has made the neccesary legal proceedings to arrange a sales contract in the state of his general abidance. The regulations of the european sale of goods law explicitly do not apply.
12 SALVATORIUS CLAUSE
 Should parts of this contract fully or partially not be legally effective anymore or lose their legal effect later on, the remaining regulations of this document in it´s contents and validity remain untouched. In this case, the parties commit themselves to arrange a valid regulation instead of the ineffective one which, if legally possible, comes closest to the tended commercial purpose of the ineffective regulation under consideration of the expressed interests in this contract by both parties. The same applies if the contract shows a shortcoming that neither of the parties intended.
13 CANCELLATION POLICY
 Cancellation Right Consumers have the right of withdrawal on contracts concluded outside of business premises and distance contracts according to § 355 BGB (German Law). You have the right to step back from the contract within 14 days without a declaration of reasons.

To keep your cancellation right it is sufficient if you send us a note on the exercise of the cancellation right before the cancellation period ends. Consequences of Cancellation: If you cancel this contract we are obliged to pay back all payments including the delivery costs (except the additional costs that accrue if you chose another way of delivery than the favourable standard delivery offered by us) immediately but at the latest within 14 days since the day we received the message of your contract cancellation. For this repayment we use the same currency that you used for the initial transaction, unless we arranged something different with you; on no account we will put cost-based charges for this repayment on you. We can decline repayment until the goods have returned to our possession or until you gave proof on sending back the goods, depending on which point in time is the earliest. You immediately have to send back or hand over the goods to us (Helios-Models-Lighting UG, Wörthstraße 4, 36037 Fulda), but at the latest within 14 days from the day you informed us about your contract cancellation. The deadline is made if you send off the goods back before the period of 14 days expires. You bear the peer to peer costs of the return of the goods. On return from outside the EU additional costs like customs duties or import charges may eventually accrue. You only have to pay for an eventual loss of value if this can be related to an unnecessary examination of the condition, qualities and functionality of the goods by you.
