(Note: in the sale of used goods, the warranty period, with the exception of that in sentence 2 damage claims completely ruled out).

Although the clause bans of the catalog offenses of §§ 308, 309 BGB refering to § 310 para. 1 BGB shall not apply to terms and conditions, which are used 14 BGB to companies i. S. d. § is not automatically assume by implication that the use of terms such as in §§ 308, 309 BGB to companies as a rule withstand the contents of control of §§ 305 ff. BGB. In accordance with § 307 para. 1, 2 no. 1 BGB, which also applies to the use of Policies towards entrepreneurs, are an unreasonable disadvantage of the contracting party in question is deemed to exist if the clause with essential basic principles of the statutory rule from which it deviates, not compatible. This leads to the case law, that the clause prohibiting catalogs of §§ 308, 309 BGB on the interpretation of 307 BGB acquires indirect significance for commercial transactions.

The clause ban of 308 BGB are applicable to the sale between entrepreneurs, because the commercial specificities have to take into account their room for margin. In contrast with the prohibitions of 309 BGB such forfeiture is not possible, the violation of 309 is also in case of a sale between entrepreneurs, is an indication of the ineffectiveness of the clause. In such a case it is recommended to get an individual examination by an jurist beforehand.

This commandment means that a clause in the Conditions in the case of a doubt is also inappropriate penalizing if it is not clear and understandable. That requirement means that intransparent clauses per se, should be regarded as ineffective without supervention a substantive undue disadvantage the other party. Furthermore, this also means that the requirement of transparency for price and performance provisions descriptive terms apply, which are generally excluded from the content control, applies.

Only when the subsequent performance fails, is not possible or is unreasonable, the buyer can - make warranty claims - in the second place: withdrawal or reduction. Restrictions solely on the subsequent performance has no effect if the other party is denied the right to a reduction in the subsequent performance fails.
