General terms and conditions of Leroma GmbH
Leroma is a B2B online platform for food raw materials. The aim of Leroma is to bring together raw material suppliers and food companies, to put raw material suppliers in touch with each other, to offer them a marketing platform and to approach a new digital distribution channel. In addition, Leroma aims to minimize the waste of raw materials and promote sustainability by offering producers and sellers of raw materials, as well as food producers, the opportunity to find potential buyers for their raw materials that are not required via the Leroma platform. For this purpose, Leroma runs a database containing different raw materials for different areas of the food industry. The database enables the interested buyer to search specifically for a certain raw material. Within the search interface, the buyer can select certain properties or quality characteristics that the desired raw material should fulfil. The buyer is then shown a list of all sellers who offer the respective raw material with the specific properties. By searching specifically for food raw materials and being able to compare offers from different suppliers, Leroma helps you to increase the efficiency of your business and save costs. Sellers of commodities can be easily contacted via the platform. In addition, Leroma, with its surplus exchange, increases the sustainability and transparency of its own company in dealing with valuable food raw materials by reselling surplus food raw materials instead of destroying them.
The user undertakes towards Leroma to assist in the fulfilment of any text obligations, in particular in accordance with § 22 UstG and to provide Leroma with the necessary information. The user is solely responsible for the correctness of the information.
Leroma grants the user the non-exclusive, simple, non-transferable, spatially and locally unlimited right of use of the database and the use of the platform in accordance with the registration therein and the acceptance of the due terms and conditions of use.
During the term of this agreement, Leroma and the user are entitled to refer to the cooperation with the other party for advertising purposes, in particular on their websites and in print media. In particular, the company and the respective logo of the other party may be mentioned and depicted.
If a claim is made against Leroma by third parties due to an infringement of industrial property rights for which the seller is responsible, the seller undertakes to reimburse Leroma for the reasonable costs incurred in defending against the alleged infringement of property rights.
The user ensures that he does not upload any personal data from third parties to the platform. If the user wishes to upload personal data from third parties to the platform, he must notify Leroma of this in advance in text form so that Leroma can make a corresponding agreement with the user that complies with data protection regulations.
§17 Company profiles
Every company has a profile within LEROMA where it shows its catalogue of products offered, brief informative text about the company, contact details and the certificates it holds for which it fulfils the requirements. Again, the uploaded data, as well as the certificates, must be truthful and updated by the company when necessary.
Appendix 1: Surplus Exchange
(1) The creation and publication of a listing on the Surplus Exchange is free of charge for the seller. Only in the event of an actual sale of the food raw material offered on the Surplus Exchange is the seller obliged to pay Leroma a brokerage commission of 10% of the net sales price. Leroma will invoice this amount to the seller. This amount is payable within 14 days of receipt of the invoice. The claim for commission arises in connection with the sending of the products which are intended as remaining stock for the Surplus Exchange. The entitlement to commission shall lapse if it is finally established that the buyer, despite concluding a contract with the seller, will not completely fulfil his contractual obligations towards the seller. Final non-fulfilment or partial final non-fulfilment by the buyer is to be assumed as soon as the seller has sent the buyer a second reminder and the buyer has not provided the seller with performance within 14 days. It is not necessary for the entrepreneur to bring an action against the third party. However, the entitlement to commission arises retroactively if, despite prior assumption of definitive non-fulfilment, fulfilment takes place at a later date.
