Remedies

The remedies in this article are exclusive and therefore preclude the Customer’s right to request any other remedies, actions or measures of whatever nature, as a consequence of any defects in the services performed in the material supplied.

Liability

Any liability of the Company, its legal representatives, employees or agents employed in performance of its obligations shall not be liable for damage sustained vis-à-vis the Customer. The Customer shall indemnify the Company, its legal representatives, employees or agents employed in performance of its obligations for all and any such claims filed by third parties in connection with this Contract and the Services performed. The foregoing indemnity shall not apply in cases of intent or gross negligence or to damage arising from injury to life, limb or health insofar as the Company is at fault. The same shall apply in cases of initial inability to perform or impossibility within the control of the Company and in case of faults which where concealed with intent to deceive or the absence of which has been guaranteed by the Company; also in cases in which the Product Liability Act prescribes liability for personal injury or property damage to privately used objects owing to faults in the delivered item.

Quality defects shall become statute part after a period of 12 months except for parts provided by the Company in performance of its obligations with a life cycle of less than 12 months. For those parts, quality defects shall become statute part after half the customary life cycle. This shall not apply in cases where longer periods are compulsorily prescribed by law in cases where the Company, its legal representatives, employees or agents employed in performance of its duties are guilty of intent or gross negligence. Nor shall it apply in case of damages resulting from injury to life, limb or health insofar as the Company is at fault. The same shall apply in case of initial inability to perform or impossibility within the control of the Company and in case of faults which were concealed with intent to deceive or the absence of which has been guaranteed by the Company; also in cases in which the Product Liability Act prescribes liability for personal injury or property damage to privately used objects owing to faults within the performance of the Services.

No claims for compensation or reimbursement of expenses by the Customer shall be accepted irrespective of the legal reasons, in particular claims for infringement of obligations arising from the contract and for tort. The foregoing shall not apply in cases where liability is compulsory, e. g. pursuant to the Product Liability Act; in cases of intent, gross negligence, and injury to life, limb or health, owing to the infringement of essential contractual obligations. Claims for compensation owing to the infringement of essential contractual obligations shall, however, be restricted to the typical foreseeable damage in such contracts, or a maximum of the total invoice amount, except liability is based on intent or gross negligence or owing to injury to life, limb or health. The foregoing provision shall not involve any shift of the onus of proof to the detriment of the Customer. Insofar as the Customer is entitled to claim compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions, these claims shall become statute-barred on expiry of the period of limitations which applies to defects in quality and title. Claims for compensation based on the Product Liability Act shall be governed by the statutory limitation periods.

The provisions of this article shall apply, excluding all other claims by the Customer, if the Services are not usable by the Customer in conformance with the provisions of the contract for reasons for which the Company is to blame as a consequence of non-performance or faulty performance of proposals and consultations prior to or after conclusion of contract and other secondary contractual obligations, in particular operations for instruction and maintenance in the frame of the performed Services.

Retention of Title and Right of Lien

The Company shall retain title to all equipment, accessories and spare parts supplied by the Company until all invoices arising from the business relationship have been paid in full.

The parties are agreed that even as a result of installation, the spare parts owned by the Company shall not become integral parts of the Equipment.

The parties agree that the Company shall be entitled to exercise a retaining lien and a contractual lien on the items which have become its property as a result of the order in respect of its claims arising from the order. The retaining and contractual lien, also on other claims (tangible and intangible assets) can also be exercised owing to claims from previously performed orders, deliveries or other claims arising from the business relationship.

Force Majeure

Either party shall be released from the performance of its obligations under this contract to the extent and for so long as the performance is impeded by reason of Force Majeure. The party claiming Force Majeure shall give prompt notice of the commencement and cessation of any such event. For the purposes of this article the expression “Force Majeure” means, but shall not be limited to, industrial dispute, fire mobilization, requisition, embargo, currency transfer prohibitions, insurrection, lack of means of transport, restriction of the use of energy, bankruptcy or delay of the subcontractor, and generally any circumstances which are beyond the control of the parties and hinder performance by one party of its obligations. If an event of Force Majeure continues for a period exceeding three months either party shall be entitled to terminate the Contract by notice in writing without incurring any further liability.

General

The parties are agreed that all contractual and non-contractual disputes shall be settled before the courts of law which have sole national and international jurisdiction over the premises of the Company in Germany. In individual cases, however, the Company shall be entitled to file an action at the Customer’s domicile or before other courts of law which have jurisdiction owing to domestic or foreign law.

Place of performance for this Contract shall be the responsible premises of the Company or the responsible premises of the Company at which performance is rendered.

Partial Invalidity

The parties are agreed that in the event that any of the foregoing provisions should prove null or void, the remaining provisions shall remain fully in force.
