Claims for repair or replacement are subject to a statute of limitations of 12 months for commercial purchasers (24 months for private individuals) calculated from the start of the statutory statute of limitations; the same shall apply mutatis mutandis in the case of rescission and reduction. This shall not apply where longer periods are prescribed by law, in the case of intent, fraudulent concealment of the defect or non-compliance with guaranteed characteristics.

Claims based on defects attributable to improper modifications or repair work carried out by the customer or third parties and the consequences thereof are likewise excluded.

§ 8 Jurisdiction and place of fulfillment

8.1  Place of performance for all contractual obligations and for each delivery  is our registered office in Greece, unless otherwise agreed.

8.2 Any disputes shall be settled, if the customer is a business person within the meaning of the Greek law, and unless otherwise agreed, exclusively before a competent court of law at the location of our company’s registered office. For the avoidance of doubt, this jurisdiction regulation shall also apply to such circumstances between ourselves and the customer which can give rise to non-contractual obligations within the meaning of Regulation (EC) No 864 / 2007. We shall also have the right, however, to bring an action against the customer at its place of general jurisdiction.

8.3 The law of the Hellenic Republic, shall apply exclusively to all legal relations between the customer and ourselves, in particular to the exclusion of the UN Sales Convention (CSIG). It is expressly stated that this choice of law is also deemed to be such choice within the meaning of Art. 14 (1) (b) Regulation (EC) No 864 / 2007 and shall, therefore, also apply to non-contractual obligations within the meaning of this Regulation. If the application of foreign law is mandatory in individual cases, our General Terms and Conditions shall be interpreted as meaning that the economic intent pursued by them is preserved to the maximum possible extent.
