  2. The delivery dates we specify are only binding if they are stated in writing.

  1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the risk shall be transferred to the buyer when the goods are collected or, if shipment has been agreed, as soon as the goods have been handed over to the carrier or have left our warehouse for shipment. If shipment is impossible for reasons for which we are not responsible, the risk shall be transferred to the buyer upon notification of our readiness for shipment.
