Terms and Conditions
Current version as of May 28, 2022
1 Scope of Application
Our General Terms and Conditions shall exclusively apply. We do not acknowledge any terms that contradict or differ from our Terms and Conditions, unless we have expressly agreed to them in writing.
2 Conclusion of the Contract
The purchase contract is not concluded until the goods are delivered or a separate written confirmation with a delivery promise is provided. The contract is not concluded by the automatic e-mail confirming the receipt of the order.
While we endeavour to minimise delivery delays and delivery impossibility as much as possible by regularly updating our database, we cannot rule them out completely.
The legally binding conclusion of the contract is subject to the condition precedent, that the competent licensing authority in Germany, the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA), issues the necessary authorisation(s) for the sale, delivery, transfer and/or export of the goods.
3 Shipping Costs
Shipping costs depend on the number and weight of the packages and the country of the shipping address. A table on our pages lists the weight and destination country related shipping costs. If you add items to your shopping cart and enter your address, you will be shown the exact shipping costs before you conclude your order.
Since shipping costs are particularly high for certain products and destination countries, we reserve the right to charge you the actual shipping costs instead of the specified flat rates. In such rare cases, however, we will contact you before shipping the items.
The specified prices are final prices including statutory value added tax. For orders with a delivery address outside of the European Union, the specified prices are understood to be net prices. In some circumstances, customs duties and import taxes for the destination country may additionally have to be paid upon delivery.
5 Due Date
The purchase price becomes due and payable upon the conclusion of the contract (i.e. when the goods are delivered or when the written confirmation with the delivery promise is received).
You can use the following methods of payment:
- Credit card (we accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express)
- C.O.D. (if offered in the destination country, plus C.O.D. charges)
- Advance payment by electronic funds transfer (in this case, you will receive a 2% cash discount on the invoice amount)
- Giropay (only in Germany)
We also offer payment by direct debit or invoice upon request. We reserve the right to restrict the methods of payment on a case-by-case basis.
7. Retention of Title
The delivered goods remain the property of nimax GmbH until they have been paid in full.
8 Export Control
8.1 The buyer is obligated to comply with all prohibitions and restrictions in force under the respective national, European and US export control regulations, including all country- and person-specific embargoes, for own use as well as for the sale and transfer to third parties.
8.2 The buyer is obligated not to use the goods for military purposes or in connection with ABC weapons or their missile technologies.
8.3 If the buyer violates his obligations under 8.1 or 8.2, a contractual penalty in the amount of 5 times the sales price of the goods concerned will be due immediately.
8.4 Claims for damages against the buyer arising from the violation of his obligations under 8.1 or 8.2 are not precluded by the payment of a contractual penalty according to 8.3. The buyer shall also bear the cost of all statutory fees for legal remuneration if official investigations are initiated against nimax GmbH or its employees.

We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement.
