11. Special Conditions for Contracts with Companies
The following deviations from the business conditions detailed above apply to customers who are not consumers but companies in the meaning of § 14 BGB.

For this purpose, CAPREO shall herewith transfer to the customer all warranty claims against the manufacturer/supplier in relation to the software, hardware and/or documents or other user instructions that are the subject of the contract. The customer approves this concession. As a consequence, the customer shall initially make all warranty claims to the manufacturer/supplier.

CAPREO shall provide the customer with all contractual documents and information regarding the contractual partner that is required for such legal action.
