Our business hours are:
Between the customer and SSB-Electronic GmbH only the current version of these terms applies; it can be accessed at www.ssb.de. The customer accepts these terms when placing an order. Confirmation to the contrary by the customer, referring to other terms or conditions of purchase are rejected. Deviations from these terms are only effective if confirmed in writing by the seller. Information, offers, pictures and descriptions of our online offers or in print media are not binding. Misprints, further development and errors are reserved.
2. Online Shop
Orders in our Shop require a registration. Customers will receive a confirmation by email. Already registered customers are asked to use their email address and the received password for identification. Ordering via our Online-Shop is usually the fastest and most reliable way to order. Due to the large number of parallel orders, we can’t confirm all data immediately. On completion of the online order you hence will receive an automatic, non binding order confirmation. This is solely the notice that we received and will check your order. Delivery dates, shipping costs and the resulting total price as well as our bank details will be sent to you separately, mostly within 1-2 business days after receipt of an order.
Price basis for all products from SSB-Electronic GmbH is the Online Shop. Single price lists cease to apply by release of these terms. Prices for all groups of customers, as end customers, special dealers or wholesalers, will be displayed only in the order confirmation or proforma invoice (not in the order receipt confirmation which you will get automatically from our shop) and therefore are not visible in the shop. Without authentication in the system, end customer prices including the currently applicable German sales tax (at the moment 19%) are shown. These end customer prices are the basis for all discounts or dealer’s conditions for all customer groups. Discounts are not granted automatically. Basis for all discounts is the end customer price. For commercial customers it is necessary to send us a commercial register extract. Please direct your request to us in writing or via email.
SSB-Electronic GmbH reserves the right to change prices even at short notice and to pass on changed prices from our suppliers. In that case, the customer shall be entitled to withdraw from his order within one week. The prices communicated by order confirmation or advance invoice are binding.
It is our aim to negotiate purchase prices on an annual basis and to pass this advantage on to you. This gives you, the customer, planning security. However, should current raw material prices on the world markets develop beyond a foreseeable level, we reserve the right to charge a raw material surcharge. We will continue to try to avoid this. The prices shown in the online shop only contain the standard shipping costs for a normal delivery. The exact shipping costs will be shown only in the order confirmation or proforma invoice since these can vary by drum sizes and weight.
The offer platform is the Webshop. We will gladly submit a separate offer to commercial customers in individual cases.
SSB-Electronic GmbH delivers in the standard case by United Parcel Service (UPS up to 22Kg) or DHL (up to 30Kg). If you prefer another shipping method, please let us know in advance.
Orders exceeding 30 kg weight are delivered by a freight-forwarding company. Collection by a forwarding company chosen by the customer can only be accepted within the European Community. This has to be announced by the customer in time. Goods which will be collected by customer will be provided into a salvage store at SSB. The invoice will be charged at the time of this transfer.
The length of the cable, which is on a coil, is subjected to a systematic tolerance of + / - 2% of the total length of that coil. This parameter is process-related. The customer accepts this tolerance with their order. Complaints for this reason can not be accepted.
If an item shouldn’t be available, we will inform you immediately. SSB-Electronic GmbH is not liable for delays of delivery caused by the supplier. SSB-Electronic GmbH is entitled to carry out and to charge partial deliveries any time.
6. Methods of payment
The following methods of payment are available: payment in advance, invoice or cash on delivery. New customers and customers outside of Germany are delivered by payment in advance. Customers wishing to pay in advance by bank transfer will receive our bank data together with the order confirmation. After receipt of payment, the goods will be shipped promptly. This does not apply to custom designs. Regular customers within Germany will be supplied by us per direct debit or invoice, too.
In case of payment by bank transfer, all bank charges are the responsibility of the client.
Paper-bound payment carriers such as checks and so on cannot be processed and must be rejected.
7. Payment terms
The ordered goods remain property of SSB-Electronic GmbH, until all outstanding debts are settled by the customer. Payments have to be made free of costs and charges according to the payment deadline. These terms are regarded as accepted by the customer at the latest with the acceptance of the goods or services. The terms of payment begin with the delivery of the goods. The payment target begins with the delivery of the goods by SSB-Electronic GmbH. If goods are being made available for pickup, the transfer of title and start of the agreed payment target will take place by informing the customer that the goods are ready for collection. The customer agrees to that with his order.
Default of payment sets in if the term of payment is exceeded, at the latest 30 days after delivery of the product. If the term of payment is exceeded, all discounts, bonuses and concessions expire. A reminder is not compulsory to exercise legal claims for SSB-Electronic GmbH. If the date of required payment was exceeded, the following fees are demanded by us:
Payment reminder: Goodwill
First Overdue notice: Reminder letter, reminder fee 10 € net
Second Overdue notice: Reminder letter and/or telephone call, reminder fee 18 € net
Third Overdue notice: Obtaining a court order, reminder fee related to effort / reimbursement according to attorneys’ fees.

Transaction fees from abroad will not be accepted. If this means that the entire invoice amount has not been paid, the difference will be claimed.
Should you reduce invoices without our permission, you will be charged for the additional expenses caused by this, in the form of reminder fees, and the remaining amount will be claimed by all instances.
