  • Conditions of Business (Export)

    for ContiTech AG (individually hereinafter referred to as „Company“)
    and its affiliated companies

    1. Invoicing shall be done at the prices, terms and conditions established by the Company on the date of dispatch. In the event of unforeseeable changes in the cost of raw materials, labour, energy and other items, the Company is entitled to adjust accordingly those prices previously quoted in offers, confirmations of orders or elsewhere. The Company is obliged to complete an order only after the Customer has been notified in writing that such order has been accepted.

    2. Unless otherwise agreed, all goods supplied by the Company shall be transported at the risk of the Customer, regardless of which party bears the freight charges. All goods supplied by the Company shall be transported according to the relevant INCOTERM, established by the Company, as defined by the ICC from time to time, to the extent not in conflict with these Conditions of Business (Export), in which case the provisions hereof shall prevail.

      In case the Customer is responsible for contracting the carrier or the shipping company the Company is entitled to approve such carrier or shipping company.

    3. The Company is not bound by any data or information given in its pricelists or other publications; all weights and measurements are subject to reasonable tolerances of up to 10% (ten percent), and any minor and deviations, reasonably acceptable to the Customer, in the colour of any article supplied must be accepted.

    4. Acts of force majeure or similar events such as breakdowns, fires, floods, shortages of labour, power or raw materials, strikes, lockouts, or governmental restrictions affecting the operation of the Company itself or of its suppliers or carriers, shall exonerate the Company from its obligations to supply or to provide the performance by the date quoted. In the case that specific intent or gross negligence are imputable to the Company's legal representatives or senior executives, the Company shall be liable according to the law. In no instance shall the Company be held responsible for any damage or inconvenience resulting, or purporting to result, from ordinary negligence, unless such damage is a foreseeable typical damage resulting from the violation of essential contractual obligations. Any legal right of rescission by the Customer shall remain unaffected, provided that the relevant qualifications are fulfilled.

      In the event of orders with performance consisting of more than one delivery, the nonfulfilment, deficient or late fulfilment of one delivery shall have no effect on other deliveries comprising the order.

    5. All goods supplied are to be paid for in the currency established by the Company. Payments shall discharge debts only when made to a bank or other institution stipulated by the Company.

      If a date or period for payment is fixed, the Customer shall be liable for the delay from the day following this date or period of payment. In all other cases the Customer shall be liable for the delay in payment 30 days following the legal date of payment and receipt of the Company's invoice. If the date of the receipt of the invoice is uncertain, the Customer shall be liable for the delay 30 days after the due date of delivery and receipt of the Company's goods. The Company shall be entitled to charge interest for the period of delay for which the Customer is liable for 8% (eight percent) per annum above the level of the prime lending rate of the "Deutsche Bundesbank" (the "Basiszinssatz") prevailing from time to time. The Company's right to assert a further claim for damages arising from default shall not be limited by this regulation. The Customer shall only be entitled to set off or withhold payments only if agreed to by the Company or if such counterclaim is undisputed or declared final and binding by a court without possibility for appeal. The Customer is entitled to other counterclaims, especially the defence of non-performance of the contract. Deductions that have not been expressly agreed upon shall not be recognized.

      Payment shall be made by cheque or by electronic wire transfer to the Company’s account on the invoice. Cash discounts, bonuses or other allowances shall be granted only when all financial obligations arising out of previous deliveries have been met, and/or the invoiced sum has been paid in cash to the Company or has been credited to the Company's account by the due dates. The presentation of bills of exchange shall thus not entitle the Customer to cash discount. In the case of cashless payment, in particular by cheque, the date on which the sum is credited to the Company is decisive in all cases. The Customer shall bear the risk arising out of the form of payment.

      Bills of exchange and cheques, whose acceptance can be agreed upon, shall be credited only upon due receipt of the full amount. The Company's claim expires only when the full due amount has been irrevocably received for the Company's free disposal. Costs and discount fees shall be debited to the Customer. The Company gives no guarantee for the correct presentation and for the protesting of bills. Any protests entered against promissory notes issued by the Customer or any delay in the repayment of such disputed bills of exchange issued by third parties shall entitle the Company to return all bills receivable; all the Company's claims shall then fall due immediately.

      The Company reserves the right to revoke at any time any credit granted, even in the form of time granted for payment. The Company shall also be entitled to demand at any time adequate security to be determined by the Company. If such security is not provided at the request of the Company, the Company's claims shall fall due immediately.

      The Company shall not pay interest on advance payments, payments on account or other credit balances.

    6. The Company shall retain the legal title to and the copyright on estimates, drafts, drawings and other documents; such documents shall be made accessible to third parties only with the prior consent of the Company.

      In the event of the Company having supplied objects in accordance with drawings, models, samples or other sources provided by the Customer, the latter shall guarantee that patent rights held by third parties are not infringed. If the Company is prohibited by third parties, with reference to patent rights, from manufacturing and supplying such objects in particular, the Company is entitled to suspend any further activity to this extent and to demand compensation or to be released from all claims by third parties arising from this.

      The Customer shall be held liable under this section 6 where the infringement of third party patent rights becomes apparent within three years as from the date when the Customer was aware, or could not reasonably be unaware of the infringement.

      The Company reserves the right to charge for prototype parts and for tools required for the production of such parts (moulds, mandrels, dies etc.). Tools required for series production are charged pro rata by the Company. All tools remain in all events the property of the Company.

    7. The Company shall retain the title to goods supplied to the Customer until such time as all claims against the Customer, including conditional claims arising out of business with the Company, shall have been settled and the sum paid by bills of exchange and cheques accepted for this purpose shall have been credited to the Company for its free disposal. The foregoing shall apply to future claims, as well.

      In the event of processing or conversion, combination or incorporation of the Company's goods with other goods not belonging to the Company, the Company shall acquire joint ownership of the new resultant product proportional to the ratio of the value of the Company's goods to that of the other goods used by the Customer at the time of processing or conversion, combination or incorporation. The new resultant product shall remain in the custody of the Customer, who, limited to this respect, shall act on the Company's behalf.

      Claims on the part of the Customer arising out of the resale of such product shall be forthwith assigned to the Company to the extent of the selling price thereof, to serve as security for the Company for claims referred to in paragraph 1 of this section 7. If so requested by the Company, the Customer shall advise its debtors of the assignment and provide the Company with all relevant information.

      During such time as the Company retains title to the goods supplied, the Customer shall be entitled to resell the goods or the products derived therefrom only in the normal course of business and to collect the assigned claims until this right of the Customer is withdrawn by the Company. Financial difficulties being encountered or a considerable deterioration in the financial circumstances of the Customer shall entitle the Company to suspend all deliveries immediately. At the same time the Company's authorisation to resell the property and to collect claims assigned to the Company shall expire. If the Customer fails to meet its obligations arising from the property reservation or otherwise defaults, the Company shall be entitled to reclaim its goods under property reservation from the Customer. Upon request of the Customer, the Company undertakes to release securities, at its own option, to the extent that the value of existing securities exceeds by a total of 10% (ten percent) that of the claims to be secured.

      In the event of the retention of title not being valid in the above-stated form according to the legal provisions of the country to which goods are delivered, then upon request the Customer shall assist the Company in establishing a comparable security in an amount and in a form acceptable to the Company.

    8. The Company shall be liable to the Customer for any lack of conformity with the particular contract regarding its goods and services with the following provisions: 

      As far as the Company is liable for any such lack of conformity, the Customer shall be entitled to have the goods brought into conformity free of charge by repair or replacement as the Company thinks fit. In the event of repairs or replacements proving a failure, the Customer shall be entitled to make an proportioned deduction from the payment due or to rescind the contract; claims for damages instead of performance shall not be affected thereby. For any further claims the Company shall be liable according to the law, in the event that specific intent or gross negligence is imputable to the Company's legal representatives or senior executives. In no instance shall the Company be held responsible for any damage or inconvenience resulting from ordinary negligence, unless such damage is a foreseeable typical damage from the violation of essential contractual obligations. Any legal right of recession by the Customer shall remain unaffected, provided that the relevant qualifications are fulfilled.

      Statements made by the Company relating to the delivery and performance of the goods, and on the applications of the goods themselves(e.g. dimensions, weight, hardness, service values) represent only descriptions or designations and not guaranteed properties; they are to be regarded as only approximate and are subject to the variations customary in the industry, unless otherwise agreed. Deviations from samples or from previous deliveries shall be avoided as far as technically feasible. The Company reserves the right to make modifications that the Customer can reasonably be expected to accept, in particular if such modifications assist technical progress and insofar as the object in question is not substantially changed.

      The Company accepts no liability for defects arising from natural wear and tear or from damage due to inexpert handling by other than the Company's own employees, in particular due to warehousing, or if the defect becomes manifest when the goods are used in a way, other than that especially agreed in writing. 

      The Company shall not be liable for any lack of conformity with the particular contract with regard to goods supplied by the Company that are agreed as being not new.

      The Company's deliveries and performances shall be subject to the Customer's statutory obligations relating to inspections and complaints and to the statutory limitation periods on liability claims. The Customer shall return rejected goods to the Company carriage paid at the Company's request; if the complaint proves in such case to be justified, the costs of the cheapest means of reshipment may be charged to the Company.

    9. ln accordance with long-standing custom in this branch of industry, no claims on the part of the Customer for damages of any kind whatsoever and under any title whatever, including claims arising out of a lack of conformity with the particular contract or tort, may be brought against the Company, its legal representatives, servants and employees, unless specific intent or gross negligence are imputable to its legal representatives or senior executives, in which case the Company shall be liable according to the law. In no instance may the Company be held responsible for any damages or loss resulting from ordinary negligence on the part of the Company, its legal representatives, servants and employees, unless such damage is a foreseeable typical damage resulting from the infringement of essential contractual obligations. This liability provision shall also apply to advice given orally or in writing by the Company; the Customer shall in particular not be released from its obligation to check the suitability of goods for the intended application itself. The foregoing limitation of liability shall not apply to claims under the German Product Liability Act as well as to claims for loss of life, physical injury and personal injury.

    10. The place of execution hereof and place of jurisdiction in respect of all claims arising out of commercial relations with the Company as well as the origin and effectiveness of such agreements or relations shall be Hanover, Germany. However, the Company reserves the right to have recourse to litigation at the domicile of the Customer. These Conditions of Business shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany, to the exclusion of the uniform law on Contracts of Sale (the United Nations' Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods dated April 11, 1980). The invalidity of any provision herein contained shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.The foregoing conditions of business, on which all offers and agreements are based, shall be regarded as having been accepted by the Customer through his placing an order with the Company or by taking delivery of goods supplied. Conditions other than the foregoing are inapplicable even if the Company does not expressly lodge an objection to them. No such conditions will be applicable unless the Company gives its prior consent in writing in each instance.

Buyer agrees that it will, upon request of Seller, defend at Buyer’s expense any infringement suit against Seller arising out of either compliance with Buyer-furnished specifications, designs, or instructions, or use of Buyer-furnished components or software, and Buyer agrees to pay costs and damages finally awarded in any such suit, provided that Buyer is notified promptly of the suit and, at Buyer’s request, is given control of such suit and all requested reasonable assistance for the defense of the same.
     
    IN NO EVENT SHALL BUYER OR SELLER BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FROM INFRINGEMENT OF PATENTS OR COPYRIGHTS.

    (8)
    LICENSES.

    1. The sale of the Products or software furnished hereunder does not convey any license by implication, estoppel or otherwise under any proprietary or patent rights of Seller covering combinations of these Products or software with other elements.

Buyer’s purchase of that Product includes a non-exclusive license to use and sub-license the software only as part of the Product and only under the following conditions: (a) Seller (or its supplier) retains all title and ownership to copyright and other intellectual property interests in the software; (b) Buyer will only transfer possession of the software in conjunction with a transfer of Product; and (c) Buyer shall not remove any copyright notice or proprietary legend from the software, or use the software with any hardware except with the Seller hardware product for which it is designed.

    3. Buyer acknowledges Seller’s claim that Seller provided software (including any related documentation or source code), if any, and Products furnished hereunder contain valuable trade secrets of Seller and, therefore, agrees that it will not translate, reverse engineer, de-compile or disassemble or make any other unauthorized use of such Seller software and Products. Since unauthorized use of such Seller software and Products will greatly diminish the value of such trade secrets and cause irreparable harm to Seller, Buyer agrees that Seller, in addition to any other remedies it may have, shall be entitled to equitable relief to protect such trade secrets, including without limitation temporary and permanent injunctive relief without the proving of damage by Seller.

    4. Buyer is not permitted to use any trademark or trade name owned by Seller, except that Buyer may indicate that the Products sold to Buyer per this Agreement are “manufactured by Continental Automotive Systems, Inc.” or, as appropriate, any other Continental business entity. Any other use of a Seller owned trademark is not permitted, except with Seller’s prior written approval.

    5. Buyer shall take any and all measures necessary to ensure that any intellectual property embodied by, or associated with the Products is fully retained by Seller even to the extent provided to entities that are U.S. government agencies, U.S. government prime contractors or grantees, subcontractors, or vendors to the aforementioned (collectively “Government Buyers”). Seller grants no license or other authorization for Government Buyers or others to use, disclose, reproduce, reverse engineer, or alter the Products or any related intellectual property except to the extent specifically provided in these Conditions of Sale. Buyer agrees to treat and ensure that others treat any intellectual property of Seller as intellectual property developed at exclusive private expense, in a manner so as to ensure that all such intellectual property is fully retained by Seller without the provision of any title to or license in such intellectual property being provided to Government Buyers or third parties except to the extent provided for in these terms and conditions. Any firmware or software documentation provided by Seller consists of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212, and the Government’s rights in the Firmware and Documentation will thus not exceed those set forth in these Conditions of Sale. This is in accordance with 48 C.F.R. 227.7201 through 227.7202-4 (if this Agreement is with a Department of Defense (“DOD”) agency) and with 48 C.F.R. 2.101 and 12.212 (if this Agreement is not with a DOD agency).
    6. The parties agree that in the event the Seller develops any proprietary information, intellectual property, work product, concepts, or ideas for inventions, copyrights, whether registered or not, improvements or valuable discoveries and ideas, whether patentable or not (collectively  “intellectual property”), which are conceived, made, first reduced to practice, or generated by Seller in connection with the Products, solely or jointly with another, all rights and ownership in such intellectual property shall be with Seller.

    (9)
    CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. To the extent that protection of information or materials to be transferred pursuant to this Agreement is covered by an existing confidentiality agreement, the existing agreement shall apply. Otherwise, the following terms shall apply: Seller may furnish to Buyer information and materials (Materials) identified as confidential or proprietary. Buyer may not disclose such Materials to any third party except to its employees who may require use of the Materials in the performance of their duties, and Buyer may use such Materials only as authorized by Seller. Buyer’s obligations with respect to such Materials shall continue for five (5) years after receipt of the Materials.

    (10)
    IMPORTATION AND EXPORTATION. Buyer shall comply with all applicable export control laws and shall not, directly or indirectly export, reexport, resell, ship, or divert any Product, Material, service, technical data, or software furnished hereunder to any person, entity, project, use, or country in violation of the laws or licensing requirements of the United States or any other appropriate national authority. Buyer shall indemnify and hold Seller harmless for any and all claims, demands, cost, fines, penalties, fees, expenses, or losses arising from Buyer’s failure, intentional or unintentional, to comply with the foregoing paragraph.

    Except to the extent and in a manner specifically agreed by Seller in advance in a signed writing executed by an authorized representative of Seller, Buyer shall in no event (a) provide to Seller any products, information, materials, software, data, or technology (“Materials”) subject to restrictions on exportation or disclosure pursuant to U.S. export control laws, including but not limited to the Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”), the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (“ITAR”), or U.S. trade sanctions (such Materials being collectively referred to herein as “Export Controlled Materials”), or (b) require Seller to design, manufacture, modify, sell or otherwise take action with respect to Export Controlled Materials.

    In the event the Product(s) are exported or re-exported from Canada, the Buyer shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations and policies, and shall apply for and receive applicable export permits prior to exportation. This includes, but is not limited to, laws relating to U.S. re-export permits and country sanctions. Any export, directly or indirectly, which is effected contrary to Canadian export control laws, or any other applicable law, regulation or policy, is prohibited. To the extent that the Canadian Buyer handles ITAR-controlled and related U.S. goods, it shall register where required with the Controlled Goods Directorate of Canada and abide by all applicable rules and laws in relation to same.

    (11)
    COMPLIANCE. In the event that Buyer elects to sell Seller’s Products or services to the U.S. Government or any state, local or non-U.S. Government entity, or to a prime contractor or other subcontractor selling to such entities, Buyer does so solely at its own option and risk. Except as indicated in the paragraph below, Buyer remains exclusively responsible for compliance with all contractual obligations and laws governing such sales and agrees not to obligate Seller as a subcontractor or otherwise to such entities. Further, Seller makes no representations, certifications or warranties whatsoever with respect to the ability of its goods, services, or prices to satisfy any such statutes, regulations, or contractual obligations.
     
    If Buyer is specifically required to “flow down” the following clauses to Seller under the terms of a U.S. federal government contract or subcontract, Buyer and Seller agree that any goods and services provided by Seller are “commercial items” as defined in Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) section 2.101 and Seller will consider agreeing to the following FAR clauses listed in FAR clause 52.244-6
    “Subcontractsfor Commercial Items”: 52.203-13, 52.219-8, 52.222-26, 52-222-35, 52.222-36, 52.222-40, 52.222-50, 52.247-60, and 52.247-64. Any such agreement by Seller must be in a signed writing executed in advance by an authorized representative of Seller.

    (12)
    GENERAL.

    1. Buyer agrees that these Conditions of Sale and any terms included on Seller’s quotation or order acknowledgment are the exclusive statement of the terms and conditions of the agreement between the parties and that they supersede all proposals and other communications between the parties, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof.

    2. No modifications hereto shall be effective unless they are agreed upon in writing by both parties.

    3. Except as specifically provided in these Conditions of Sale, Buyer shall have no right to return Products to Seller.

    4. The failure of either party to insist in any one or more instances upon the performance of any of the terms, covenants, or conditions in this Agreement or to exercise any right under this Agreement, shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the future performance of any such term, covenant, or condition or the future exercise of any such right.

    5. No right, interest or obligation in this Agreement may be assigned or delegated by either party without the written permission of the other party. This Agreement is binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors.

    6. If any provision of this Agreement is contrary to, prohibited by or held invalid by any law, rule, order or regulation of any government or by the final determination of any State or Federal court, such invalidity shall not affect the enforceability of any other provisions not held to be invalid.

    7. Section and paragraph headings used in this Agreement are for convenience only and are not to be deemed or construed to be part of this Agreement.

    8. This Agreement shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan, without reference to principles of choice and conflicts of laws. The Parties agree that the sole and exclusive venue for all disputes, claims or causes of actions shall be within the geographic bounds of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. In the particular case in which both Buyer and Seller are companies duly incorporated under Mexican Law, this Agreement shall be considered as a contract made and to be performed at Mexico City, Mexico, and all disputes and causes of action between the parties related thereto shall be governed exclusively by and construed in accordance with the laws of Mexico City, Mexico, without regard to its conflicts of laws’ provisions. In the particular case in which both Buyer and Seller are companies duly incorporated under Canadian Law, this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada, without regard to its conflicts of laws’ provisions. Buyer and Seller exclude the application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

    9. The parties agree that any claim or dispute arising from this transaction will be submitted to non-binding mediation prior to initiation of any formal legal process. Such mediation will occur in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and the parties will bear their own expenses concerning the mediation.

    für die ContiTech AG sowie deren Tochtergesellschaften

     

    A. Lieferung

    1. Unsere Angebote sind freibleibend. Lieferung, Leistung und Berechnung erfolgen zu den von uns vor Versand oder Abholung der Ware zuletzt bekanntgegebenen Preisen und Bedingungen. Nicht vorhersehbare Rohstoff-, Lohn-, Energie- und sonstige Kostenänderungen berechtigen uns zu entsprechenden Preisangleichungen. Wir liefern an unsere unmittelbaren Abnehmer nach unserer Wahl franko Post, franko jedem deutschen Stückgutbahnhof oder franko auf sonst üblichem Wege. Wird beschleunigte Versendung vorgeschrieben (z. B. Luftfracht, Express), so trägt der Besteller die Differenz zwischen den Kosten für Frachtgut und den höheren Aufwendungen. Rollgeld geht zu Lasten des Bestellers. Eine Vergütung für Selbstabholung wird nicht gewährt. Es steht uns frei, ab Werk oder ab Niederlassung zu liefern.

    2. Soweit nichts anderes vereinbart, reist die Ware auf Gefahr des Empfängers, unabhängig vom Ort der Versendung. Ist die Ware versandbereit und verzögert sich die Versendung oder die Abnahme aus Gründen, die wir nicht zu vertreten haben, so geht die Gefahr mit dem Zugang der Anzeige der Versandbereitschaft auf den Besteller über. Die Versendung gilt als zu diesem Zeitpunkt erfolgt.

    3. Die Annahme von Kleinaufträgen und die Festlegung von Mindestabnahmemengen oder Mindestrechnungsbeträgen behalten wir uns vor. Die bestellten Mengen können, wenn es sich um Anfertigungsware handelt, bis zu 10% über- oder unterschritten werden, soweit dies dem Besteller zumutbar ist. Bei Abrufaufträgen sind wir berechtigt, das Material für den gesamten Auftrag zu beschaffen und die gesamte Bestellmenge sofort herzustellen. Etwaige Änderungswünsche des Bestellers können demnach nach Erteilung des Auftrages nicht mehr berücksichtigt werden, es sei denn, daß dies ausdrücklich vereinbart wurde. Teillieferungen sind zulässig.

    4. Soweit Einwegverpackung zu Einsatz kommt, die aus Papier, Jute, Folie oder Holz besteht, wird diese nicht berechnet. Sonstige Verpackung, insbesondere Spezialverpackung wie Holz- oder Stahltrommeln, Eisenkerne, werden zum Selbstkostenpreis in Rechnung gestellt.

    5. In Fällen von höherer Gewalt und sonstiger störender Ereignisse bei uns, bei unseren Lieferanten oder bei den Transportunternehmen, wie beispielsweise Betriebs- oder Verkehrsstörungen, Feuer, Überschwemmungen, Arbeitskräfte‑,
      Energie- oder Rohstoffmangel, Streik, Aussperrung, behördliche Maßnahmen, sind wir von der Pflicht zur rechtzeitigen Lieferung oder Leistung entbunden. Wenn uns, unseren gesetzlichen Vertretern oder leitenden Angestellten Vorsatz oder grobe Fahrlässigkeit zur Last fällt, haften wir nach den gesetzlichen Bestimmungen. Für Schäden, die auf leichter Fahrlässigkeit beruhen, ist jede Haftung ausgeschlossen, es sei denn, es handelt sich um vorhersehbare typische Schäden aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten. Unberührt bleibt ein gesetzliches Rücktrittsrecht des Bestellers, sofern dessen Voraussetzungen gegeben sind.

      Bei Aufträgen, deren Erfüllung aus mehreren Lieferungen besteht, ist Nichterfüllung, mangelhafte oder verspätete Erfüllung einer Lieferung ohne Einfluss auf andere Lieferungen des Auftrages.

    6. Die Rückgabe verkaufter Ware ist grundsätzlich ausgeschlossen. Sofern ausnahmsweise Ware zurückgenommen wird, wird der am Tage der Rücknahme gültige Nettopreis gutgeschrieben. Liegt der Nettopreis am Tage der Lieferung unter dem Nettopreis am Tage der Rücknahme, so wird der am Tage der Lieferung gültige Nettopreis gutgeschrieben. Vorstehendes gilt nicht im Falle der Ausübung des Eigentumsvorbehalts.

    7. Die Anmeldung eines Insolvenzverfahrens, die Abgabe der eidesstattlichen Versicherung gemäß § 807 ZPO, eintretende Zahlungsschwierigkeiten oder das Bekanntwerden einer wesentlichen Verschlechterung der Vermögensverhältnisse des Bestellers berechtigen uns, Lieferungen sofort einzustellen und die Erfüllung laufender Verträge zu verweigern.

    8. An Kostenanschlägen, Entwürfen, Zeichnungen und anderen Unterlagen behalten wir uns das Eigentums- und Urheberrecht vor; sie dürfen Dritten nur im Einvernehmen mit uns zugänglich gemacht werde. Zu Angeboten gehörige Zeichnungen und andere Unterlagen sind auf Verlangen und in jedem Fall dann zurückzugeben, wenn uns der Auftrag nicht erteilt wird.

      Sofern wir Gegenstände nach vom Besteller übergebenen Zeichnungen, Modellen, Mustern oder sonstigen Unterlagen geliefert haben, haftet dieser dafür, daß Schutzrechte Dritter nicht verletzt werden. Untersagen uns Dritte unter Berufung auf Schutzrechte, insbesondere die Herstellung und Lieferung derartiger Gegenstände, sind wir – ohne zur Prüfung der Rechtslage verpflichtet zu sein – berechtigt, insoweit jede weitere Tätigkeit einzustellen und Schadensersatz zu verlangen. Der Besteller verpflichtet sich außerdem, uns vor allen damit im Zusammenhang stehenden Ansprüche Dritter unverzüglich freizustellen.

      Unsere Ansprüche aus der Rechtsmängelhaftung verjähren innerhalb einer Frist von 3 Jahren, gerechnet ab Kenntnis oder grob fahrlässiger Unkenntnis von der zugrundeliegenden Pflichtverletzung.

    9. Vom Besteller zur Auftragsdurchführung beigestellte Gegenstände und Materialien sind von ihm frei dem von uns angegebenen Werk mit der vereinbarten, andernfalls einer angemessenen Mehrmenge für etwaigen Ausschuß rechtzeitig in einwandfreier und vereinbarter Beschaffenheit anzuliefern. Geschieht dies nicht, so haben wir das Recht, dadurch verursachte Kosten in Rechnung zu stellen und die Fabrikation nach unserem Ermessen nicht aufzunehmen oder zu unterbrechen. Wir behalten uns vor, die Kosten für Versuchsteile und die zu ihrer Fertigung notwendigen Werkzeuge (Formen, Dorne, Mundstücke usw.) zu berechnen. Die für die Serienfertigung erforderlichen Werkzeuge stellen wir anteilig in Rechnung. Alle Werkzeuge bleiben in jedem Fall unser Eigentum.


    B. Eigentumsvorbehalt und Sicherungsrechte

    1.  
      1. Wir behalten uns das Eigentum an sämtlichen von uns gelieferten Waren vor, bis alle unsere Forderungen gegen den Besteller, auch die bedingt bestehenden, erfüllt sind. Dies gilt darüber hinaus auch für künftig entstehende Forderungen.

      2. Zur Geltendmachung unseres Eigentumsvorbehalts sind wir berechtigt, die sofortige Herausgabe der Vorbehaltsware unter Ausschluß jeglichen Zurückbehaltungsrechts zu verlangen, es sei denn, es handelt sich um rechtskräftig festgestellte oder unbestrittene Gegenansprüche. Kommt der Besteller diesem Verlangen nicht unverzüglich nach, sind wir oder von uns bevollmächtigte Personen berechtigt, die Räume des Bestellers zu betreten, um uns den unmittelbaren Besitz der Vorbehaltsware zu verschaffen. Dabei hat der Besteller Auskunft über den Verbleib der Ware zu geben und, soweit erforderlich, Einsicht in seine darüber geführten Geschäftsunterlagen zu gewähren.

      3. Unbeschadet der Zahlungsverpflichtung des Bestellers sind wir berechtigt, die zurückgenommene Ware

        1. freihändig bestens zu verkaufen und den Erlös gutzuschreiben, oder

        2. zu dem von uns dem Besteller berechneten Preis (Vertragspreis) abzüglich Skonto, Rabatte und sonstigen Nachlässen und unter Abzug der Wertminderung gutzuschreiben.

        In allen Fällen sind wir außerdem berechtigt, unsere Rücknahmekosten von der Gutschrift abzusetzen.

      4. Von einer Pfändung oder jeder anderweitigen Beeinträchtigung unserer Eigentumsrechte durch Dritte hat uns der Besteller unverzüglich Mitteilung zu machen und das Eigentumsrecht sowohl Dritten als auch uns gegenüber schriftlich zu bestätigen. Eine Verpfändung oder Sicherungsübereignung der unter Eigentumsvorbehalt gelieferten Ware ist dem Besteller untersagt.

      5. Der Besteller hat die Vorbehaltsware ausreichend, insbesondere gegen Feuer und Diebstahl, zu versichern. Ansprüche gegen die Versicherung aus einem die Vorbehaltsware betreffenden Schadensfall werden bereits jetzt in Höhe des Wertes der Vorbehaltsware an uns abgetreten. Der Besteller hat die Versicherung von der Forderungsabtretung zu unterrichten.

      6. Ein Eigentumserwerb des Bestellers an der Vorbehaltsware gemäß § 950 BGB im Falle der Be- und Verarbeitung der Vorbehaltsware zu einer neuen Sache ist ausgeschlossen. Eine etwaige Be- und Verarbeitung erfolgt durch den Besteller für uns, ohne daß uns dadurch Verpflichtungen entstehen. Die be- oder verarbeitete Ware gilt als Vorbehaltsware im Sinne dieser Bedingungen. Bei Verbindung, Vermischung oder Vermengung mit uns nicht gehörenden Waren (§§ 947, 948 BGB) steht uns das Miteigentum an der neuen Sache oder Gesamtmenge in dem Verhältnis zu, in dem der Wert unserer Vorbehaltsware zum Zeitpunkt ihrer Verbindung, Vermischung oder Vermengung zum Wert der anderen verbundenen, vermischten oder vermengte Waren stand. Erwirbt der Besteller das Alleineigentum an der neuen Sache, so sind sich die Vertragspartner darüber einig, daß der Besteller uns im Verhältnis des Wertes der verarbeiteten bzw. verbundenen, vermischten oder vermengten Vorbehaltsware zum Gesamtwert der neuen Sache oder Gesamtmenge Miteigentum an der neuen Sache oder Gesamtmenge einräumt. Die dabei entstehende neue Sache gilt als Vorbehaltsware im Sinne dieser Bedingungen. Der Besteller verwahrt sie mit kaufmännischer Sorgfalt für uns und verpflichtet sich, uns die zur Rechtsausübung erforderlichen Angaben zu machen und uns insoweit Einblick in seine Unterlagen zu gewähren.

    2.  
      1. Die Forderungen des Bestellers aus der Weiterveräußerung der Vorbehaltsware werden bereits jetzt mit allen Nebenrechten an uns abgetreten, und zwar unabhängig davon, ob die Vorbehaltsware ohne oder nach Verarbeitung, Verbindung oder Vermischung und ob sie an einen oder mehrere Abnehmer weiterveräußert wird. Ist die abgetretene Forderung gegen den Drittschuldner in eine laufende Rechnung aufgenommen worden, so bezieht sich die vereinbarte Abtretung auch auf die Ansprüche aus dem Kontokorrent. Die abgetretenen Forderungen dienen der Sicherung aller unserer Rechte und Forderungen gemäß B. 1 a).

      2. Für den Fall, daß die Vorbehaltsware vom Besteller zusammen mit anderen, uns nicht gehörenden Waren, sei es ohne, sei es nach Verbindung, Vermischung, Be- oder Verarbeitung verkauft wird, gilt die Abtretung der Kaufpreisforderung gemäß B. 2 a) in Höhe des Vertragspreises unserer Vorbehaltsware an uns als vereinbart. Darüber hinaus gilt als vereinbart, daß zusätzlich vom vorgenannten Weiterverkaufspreis eine Forderung in Höhe von 10 % unseres Vertragspreises abgetreten ist, die nach Eingang des Betrages mit den Zinsen und Kosten verrechnet wird, wobei der nicht verbrauchte Mehrbetrag zu vergüten ist. Erbringt der Besteller zusammen mit dem Verkauf der Vorbehaltsware eine damit zusammenhängende Leistung und unterscheidet er auf der dem Abnehmer ausgestellten Rechnung nicht zwischen Vorbehaltsware und der Leistung, berechnet er also einen Gesamtpreis, ist dieser in Höhe unseres Vertragspreises an uns abgetreten.

      3. Wird die Vorbehaltsware vom Besteller zur Erfüllung eines Werk- oder Werklieferungsvertrages verwandt, so wird die Forderung aus dem Werk- oder Werklieferungsvertrag in gleichem Umfange im voraus an uns abgetreten, wie es unter B. 2 a) und b) bestimmt ist.

      4. Der Besteller ist zur Weiterveräußerung oder sonstiger Verwendung der Vorbehaltsware nur unter der Voraussetzung berechtigt und ermächtigt, daß die unter B. 2 a) bis c) bezeichneten Forderungen auf uns übergehen und daß in seinen Rechnungskopien, Lieferscheinen oder sonstigen Unterlagen der Name unseres Fabrikats aufgeführt wird. Zu anderen Verfügungen über die Vorbehaltsware ist er nicht berechtigt.

      5. Der Besteller ist zur Einziehung der Forderungen aus der Weiterveräußerung trotz der Abtretung ermächtigt. Unsere Einziehungsbefugnis bleibt von der Einziehungsermächtigung des Bestellers unberührt. Wir werden aber selbst die Forderungen nicht einziehen, solange der Besteller seinen Zahlungsverpflichtungen ordnungsgemäß nachkommt. Auf unser Verlangen hat er uns die Schuldner der abgetretenen Forderungen mitzuteilen, sowie den Schuldnern die Abtretung anzuzeigen. Wir und unsere Bevollmächtigten sind berechtigt, die Räume des Bestellers zu betreten um die zur Feststellung und Geltendmachung der an uns abgetretenen Forderungen erforderlichen Unterlagen einzusehen, sie kurzfristig zu entnehmen oder zu kopieren.

      6. Wir sind berechtigt, die Befugnis des Bestellers zur Weiterveräußerung der Vorbehaltsware und zur Einziehung der an uns abgetretenen Forderungen mit sofortiger Wirkung zu widerrufen, wenn der Besteller uns gegenüber in Zahlungsverzug gerät oder sich auf Grund einer wesentlichen Verschlechterung seiner Vermögensverhältnisse in Zahlungsschwierigkeiten befindet. Wird über das Vermögen des Bestellers das Insolvenzverfahren beantragt, jegliche Zahlung eingestellt, eine eidesstattliche Versicherung gemäß § 807 ZPO abgegeben oder tritt im Zusammenhang mit Zahlungsschwierigkeiten ein Wechsel in der Inhaberschaft des Unternehmens des Bestellers ein, erlischt die Befugnis zur Weiterveräußerung der Vorbehaltsware und zur Einziehung der an uns abgetretenen Forderungen von selbst. Sofern wir die Befugnisse des Bestellers zur Weiterveräußerung der Vorbehaltsware widerrufen haben oder sie von selbst erloschen ist, ist der Besteller verpflichtet, die Vorbehaltsware sofort an uns herauszugeben und uns selbst oder einem von uns Bevollmächtigten den unmittelbaren Besitz zu verschaffen. In diesem Zusammenhang sind wir und unsere Bevollmächtigten berechtigt, die Geschäftsräume des Bestellers zu betreten. Der Besteller ist zudem verpflichtet, uns Einsicht in seine Geschäftsunterlagen zu gewähren, soweit er uns nicht unverzüglich umfassend Auskunft erteilt. Alle durch die wieder in Besitznahme der Vorbehaltsware entstehenden Kosten trägt der Besteller.

    3.  

      1. Der Eigentumsvorbehalt gemäß den vorstehenden Bestimmungen bleibt auch bestehen, wenn einzelne unserer Forderungen in eine laufende Rechnung aufgenommen werden und der Saldo gezogen und anerkannt ist.

      2. Der Eigentumsvorbehalt gemäß den vorstehenden Bestimmungen erlischt, wenn alle oben unter B. 1 a) angeführten Forderungen erfüllt sind. Damit geht das Eigentum an der Vorbehaltsware auf den Besteller über, und die abgetretenen Forderungen stehen ihm zu.

    4. Übersteigt der Wert sämtlicher für uns bestehenden Sicherheiten unsere Forderungen insgesamt nachhaltig um mehr als 20 %, so sind wir auf Verlangen des Bestellers insoweit zur Freigabe von Sicherungen nach unserer Wahl verpflichtet.


    C. Zahlung

    1. Unsere Rechnungen sind porto- und spesenfrei zu bezahlen:

      1. mit 3 % Kassaskonto
        bei barer Vorauszahlung, Nachnahmeversand, sofortiger Barzahlung oder wenn Rechnungen, datiert vom 1. bis 15. eines Monats, bis Ende desselben Monats, Rechnungen, datiert vom 16. bis Ende des Monats, bis zum 15. des folgenden Monats bezahlt werden;

      2. rein netto
        Rechnungen, datiert vom 1. bis 15. eines Monats, spätestens am Ende des folgenden Monats, und Rechnungen, datiert vom 16. bis Ende eines Monats, spätestens am 15. des zweiten darauffolgenden Monats.

    2. Kassaskonto wird nur gewährt, wenn sämtliche fälligen Zahlungsverpflichtungen aus früheren Lieferungen erfüllt sind und der Rechnungsbetrag pünktlich bis zu den vorgenannten Fälligkeitstagen bei uns in bar vorliegt oder unserem Konto gutgeschrieben ist. Wechselhergabe kann also nicht zur Gewährung von Kassaskonto führen. Bei bargeldloser Zahlung, insbesondere auch bei Scheckhergabe, kommt es in jedem Falle auf den Zeitpunkt der Gutschrift an. Bei Zahlung oder Gutschrift unter Vorbehalt, unter einer Bedingung oder unter sonstigen Einschränkungen kann Skonto nicht gewährt werden. Das Risiko des Zahlungsweges trägt der Besteller.

    3. Wechsel und Schecks werden nur unter Vorbehalt des richtigen Eingangs des vollen Betrages gutgeschrieben. Die Hereinnahme von fremden oder eigenen Akzepten behalten wir uns vor. Kosten und Diskontspesen gehen zu Lasten des Bestellers. Eine Gewähr für Vorlage und Protest übernehmen wir nicht. Protesterhebung eigener Wechsel des Bestellers oder nicht sofortige Abdeckung protestierter fremder Wechsel ermächtigen uns, sämtliche noch laufenden Wechsel zurückzugeben. Gleichzeitig werden unsere sämtlichen Forderungen fällig. Vordatierte Schecks werden nicht angenommen.

    4. Werden die unter C. 1. genannten Zahlungsziele oder besonders vereinbarte Zahlungsziele überschritten, kommt der Besteller sofort in Zahlungsverzug. In jedem Fall kommt der Besteller spätestens dann in Zahlungsverzug, wenn er nicht innerhalb von 30 Tagen nach Fälligkeit und Zugang der Rechnung zahlt. Ist der Zugang der Rechnung unsicher, kommt der Besteller spätestens 30 Tage nach Fälligkeit und Empfang unserer Lieferung in Zahlungsverzug. Wir sind berechtigt, für die Dauer des Zahlungsverzuges Zinsen in Höhe des jeweiligen Basiszinssatzes der Deutschen Bundesbank zuzüglich 8% p.a. zu berechnen. Das Recht weitergehender Schadensersatzansprüche geltend zu machen, wird dadurch nicht beschränkt.

    5. Die Aufhebung einer Kreditgewährung, auch soweit sie in der Einräumung von Zahlungsfristen im Rahmen dieser Bedingungen liegt, bleibt uns jederzeit vorbehalten. Wir sind auch berechtigt, jederzeit für eine bestehende Forderung eine nach unserem Ermessen ausreichende Sicherstellung zu verlangen. Wird diesem Ersuchen nicht stattgegeben, kommt der Besteller seinen Zahlungsverpflichtungen nicht nach oder werden uns Umstände bekannt, die nach pflichtgemäßem kaufmännischen Ermessen geeignet sind, seine Kreditwürdigkeit in Frage zu stellen, so werden unsere sämtlichen Forderungen, auch soweit wir dafür Wechsel entgegengenommen haben, sofort fällig.

    6. Voraus- bzw. Abschlagszahlungen verzinsen wir nicht.

    7. Zur Aufrechnung oder Einbehaltung von Zahlungen ist der Besteller nur berechtigt, wenn seine Gegenforderung unbestritten oder rechtskräftig festgestellt ist. Sonstige Gegenrechte, insbesondere die Einrede des nichterfüllten Vertrages steht dem Besteller im gesetzlichen Umfang zu. Im übrigen werden Abzüge, die nicht ausdrücklich vereinbart sind, nicht anerkannt.

    8. Zahlungen können mit schuldbefreiender Wirkung nur an unser Stammhaus, an die Kassen unserer Niederlassungen oder an inkassoberechtigte Lager sowie an Angestellte unserer Firma erfolgen, die mit einer Inkassovollmacht versehen sind.

    9. Ein Anspruch auf Auszahlung oder Verrechnung des Bonus besteht nur, wenn der Besteller sämtliche fälligen Forderungen an uns bezahlt hat.

     

    D. Haftung

    1. Für Mängel unserer Lieferungen und Leistungen haften wir gemäß den nachfolgenden Bestimmungen:

      1. Soweit wir im Rahmen der Mängelhaftung verpflichtet sind, leisten wir Nacherfüllung, und zwar nach unserer Wahl entweder durch kostenlose Mangelbeseitigung oder durch Neulieferung. Sofern die Nacherfüllung fehl schlägt, ist der Kunde berechtigt, ein Rücktritts- oder Minderungsrecht auszuüben; der Schadensersatzanspruch statt der Leistung bleibt unberührt. Für weitergehende Ansprüche haften wir nach den gesetzlichen Bestimmungen, wenn uns, unseren gesetzlichen Vertretern oder leitenden Angestellten Vorsatz oder grobe Fahrlässigkeit zur Last fällt. Für Schäden, die auf leichter Fahrlässigkeit beruhen, ist jede Haftung ausgeschlossen, es sei denn, es handelt sich um vorhersehbare typische Schäden aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten. Unberührt bleibt ein gesetzliches Rücktrittsrecht des Bestellers, sofern dessen Voraussetzungen gegeben sind.

      2. Unsere Angaben zum Liefer- und Leistungsgegenstand, zum Verwendungszweck usw. (z. B. Maße, Gewichte, Härte, Gebrauchswerte) stellen lediglich Beschreibungen bzw. Kennzeichnungen und keine Beschaffenheits- oder Haltbarkeitsgarantie dar; sie sind nur als annähernd zu betrachten. Branchenübliche Abweichungen bleiben vorbehalten, soweit nicht anderes vereinbart ist. Garantien müssen ausdrücklich schriftlich im einzelnen als solche bezeichnet werden. Abweichungen von Mustern und von früheren Lieferungen werden, soweit technisch angängig, vermieden. Änderungen im Rahmen des für den Besteller Zumutbaren, insbesondere wenn sie dem technischen Fortschritt dienen und soweit der Liefergegenstand nicht erheblich geändert wird, behalten wir uns vor. Lediglich erhebliche Abweichungen begründen einen Anspruch auf Sachmangelhaftung gemäß D. 1. a).

      3. Ein von uns zu vertretender Mangel liegt insbesondere nicht vor bei natürlichem Verschleiß oder bei nicht bei uns erfolgten Beschädigungen durch unsachgemäße Behandlung, vor allem auch Lagerung oder wenn sich der Mangel bei einer besonderen Verwendung der Ware herausstellt, der wir im Einzelfall nicht schriftlich zugestimmt haben.

      4. Für unsere Lieferungen und Leistungen gelten in jedem Fall die gesetzlichen Untersuchungs- und Rügepflichten sowie die gesetzlichen Verjährungspflichten. Auf unser Verlangen wird der Besteller beanstandete Ware frachtfrei an uns zurücksenden. Stellt sich die Mängelrüge in einem solchen Fall als berechtigt heraus, so gehen die Kosten der billigsten Rücksendung zu unseren Lasten.

      5. Für Produkte, die wir vereinbarungsgemäß nicht als Neuware liefern, besteht keine Sachmängelhaftung.

    2. Einer langjährigen Übung unseres Industriezweiges entsprechend sind Schadensersatzansprüche des Bestellers, gleich welcher Art und aus welchem Rechtsgrund, z. B. wegen einer Pflichtverletzung oder aus unerlaubter Handlung, gegen uns, unsere gesetzlichen Vertreter, Erfüllungsgehilfen und Betriebsangehörigen ausgeschlossen. Wenn uns, unseren gesetzlichen Vertretern oder leitenden Angestellten Vorsatz oder grobe Fahrlässigkeit zur Last fällt, haften wir jedoch nach den gesetzlichen Bestimmungen. Für Schäden, die auf leichter Fahrlässigkeit beruhen, ist jede Haftung ausgeschlossen, es sei denn, es handelt sich um vorhersehbare typische Schäden aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten. Diese Haftungsregelung gilt auch für unsere Beratung in Wort und Schrift, durch Versuche oder in sonstiger Weise. Der Besteller ist insbesondere nicht davon befreit, selbst die Eignung unserer Ware für die beabsichtigten Verwendungszwecke zu prüfen. Ansprüche nach dem Produkthaftungsgesetz bleiben durch diesen Haftungsausschluß unberührt. Gleiches gilt auch für unsere Haftung für Schäden aus der Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers oder der Gesundheit.

     

    E. Erfüllungsort, Gerichtsstand, sonstige Vereinbarungen

    1. Erfüllungsort und Gerichtsstand für alle Ansprüche aus den Geschäftsverbindungen, insbesondere aus unseren Lieferungen, ist Hannover, auch wenn Verkäufe oder Lieferungen von einer Niederlassung vorgenommen sind. Dieser Gerichtsstand gilt auch für Streitigkeiten über die Entstehung und Wirksamkeit des Vertragsverhältnisses. Ohne Rücksicht auf die Höhe des Objektes steht uns das Recht zu, beim Amtsgericht oder Landgericht Hannover zu klagen, nach unserer Wahl auch bei den für den Sitz des Bestellers zuständigen Gerichten. Es gilt ausschließlich das Recht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Die Anwendung des Einheitlichen UN-Kaufrechts (Übereinkommen über Verträge über den internationalen Warenverkauf v. 11. 04. 1980) ist ausgeschlossen.

    2. Unsere Geschäftsbedingungen, die allen Vereinbarungen und Angeboten zugrunde liegen, gelten durch Auftragserteilung oder Annahme der Lieferung als anerkannt; sie können von uns jederzeit geändert werden.

  • ContiTech Slovenija, D.O.O. Conditions of Sale (Slovenia)
    (SLOVENIA, EUROPE, REVISION 6: Effective February 01, 2017)
     
    These ContiTech Slovenija Terms and Conditions of Sale apply to all sales by ContiTech Slovenija, d.o.o., of any product.
     
    (1) Exclusive Terms and Conditions of Sale. These ContiTech Slovenija Terms and Conditions of Sale (the "Terms") apply to all sales by ContiTech Slovenija, d.o.o., Slovenia (the "Seller") of any product(s) (the "Product(s)") to any buyer (the "Buyer") and are the exclusive terms and conditions of sale. Any offer by Seller to sell Products is expressly conditioned on Buyer's assent to and acceptance of these Terms. Any additional, different or other terms and/or conditions contained in any acceptance, confirmation or other document by or from Buyer are hereby objected to and rejected by Seller. Buyer accepts the Terms by receipt of the Product. Any acceptance by Seller of any offer to purchase Products is expressly conditioned on Buyer’s assent to and acceptance of these Terms, including all terms that are different from or in addition to any terms and conditions of the offer. Any additional, different or other terms and/or conditions contained in any purchase order or other document by or from Buyer are hereby objected to and rejected by Seller. In the event of any claimed conflict between these Terms and other alleged terms and conditions contained in any other document, these Terms shall control and take precedence over any other alleged terms and conditions.
     
    (2) Integration. These Terms, together with the quantity, price and delivery schedule for the Product(s), the distributor agreement, if any, and other writings annexed hereto and signed by authorized representatives of Buyer and Seller, (collectively,the “Agreement”), set forth the complete, and final agreement and understanding between Seller and Buyer in respect of the subject matter hereof, and supersede all prior oral or written agreements, understandings, representations, statements, and assurances. Buyer represents and acknowledges that Buyer is not relying upon any oral or written statement, warranty or representation of seller, its employees, agents and/or representatives not fully set forth in the Agreement.
     
    (3) No Modification. These Terms and the other components of the Agreement shall not be amended, or modified, nor shall any party be released from any provision thereof, unless such change occurs in a single writing signed by an officer of Seller and an authorized representative of Buyer.
     
    (4) Warranty on Seller's Product(s). Until the earlier of twelve (12) months from the date of installation of the Product or eighteen (18) months from customer’s receipt of the Product, Seller warrants good and free title in the Product(s) and that the Product(s) will conform to Seller’s published specifications, if any exist, or to such other specifications the parties have agreed upon in a single writing signed by both an officer of Seller and an authorized representative of Buyer. Product(s) will conform to such specifications according to established tests performed under controlled laboratory conditions and specific test requirements. These tests are intended to reflect the performance of the Product(s) under controlled laboratory conditions rather than actual use conditions. Performance of the Product(s) under actual use conditions or as a component in a finished product, may not necessarily meet the test requirements. Due to the number and variety of applications for which the Product(s) sold hereunder may be purchased and because Seller has no control over (or knowledge of) the conditions under which the Product(s) may be used by others, Seller makes no recommendation, warranty or representation as to the suitability of the Product(s) for Buyer's application, use, end-product, process or combination with any other product or substance, or as to any results Buyer might obtain in Buyer’s use(s) for the Product(s). SELLER MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCT(S), EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RESPECTING
    MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE
    .
    (5) Obligation of Reseller. If Buyer distributes or resells the Product(s), Buyer represents and agrees that Buyer will cause its customer to receive and accept the Warranty and Remedy limitations set forth in paragraphs (4) to (7) herein. Buyer agrees to hold harmless and indemnify Seller from and against any losses, damages and expenses from or relating to Buyer's failure to satisfy its obligations under this paragraph.
     
    (6) No Reliance. Buyer represents and acknowledges that Buyer used its own knowledge, skill, judgment, expertise and experience in (i) the selection of the Product(s) and/or (ii) in the selection, provision, or designation of any specification or set of specifications for the Product(s) agreed upon by Buyer and Seller; and Buyer represents and acknowledges that Buyer does not rely on any oral or written statements, representations, or samples made or presented by Seller, its employees, agents and/or representatives to Buyer. Buyer represents and acknowledges that Buyer does not rely on any knowledge, skill, judgment, expertise or experience of Seller, its employees, agents and/or representatives in Buyer’s selection of the Product(s) or in Buyer's selection, provision or designation of any specification or set of specifications. Without limiting the foregoing, Buyer agrees that Seller shall not be liable for, and assumes all risk of, inaccurate or unsuitable specifications or information provided, selected or designated by Buyer.
     
    (7) Limitation of Liability of Seller and Buyer's Exclusive Remedy. If Buyer claims that any Product(s) are non-conforming or defective in any way, Buyer shall give notice in writing to Seller of such claim within fifteen (15) days of Buyer becoming aware of such claim. The Buyer shall make the Product(s) available for inspection by the Seller. Upon Seller's approval, Buyer shall return the Product(s) to a location designated by Seller, at Buyer’s expense. As Buyer's exclusive remedy for breach of warranty, breach under the Agreement and/or any other alleged claim relating to the Product(s), Seller will make an adjustment for Product(s) it finds to be non-conforming to the warranty hereunder either by repairing Product(s) or replacing Product(s) at an adjustment price, or in lieu thereof, at Seller's sole discretion and option, Seller may refund the purchase price. In the event that a warranty provision in the other components of the Agreement provides that, for a specific Product, no adjustment shall be made after a specified period of time, Seller shall not be responsible under the terms of such warranty unless the claim is made within the required period of time. Seller's total responsibility and liability for any and all claims, losses and damages of any kind whatsoever arising out of any cause whatsoever (whether under any warranty or based in contract, negligence, other tort, strict liability, breach of warranty, other theory under law or equity or otherwise) shall not exceed the original purchase price of the non-conforming Product(s). IN NO EVENT, SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY CAUSE.
    Seller shall not be liable for, and Buyer assumes all liability for, all personal injury and property damage connected with the handling, transportation, or further manufacture, fabrication, assembly, or processing of the Product(s).
     
    (8) No License. No statement contained herein shall be construed as a license to any intellectual property, a license to operate or use the Product(s) in any specific application, or as a recommendation or inducement to infringe patents or as an endorsement or recommendation for use with other manufacturers' products or systems.
     
    (9) Price Adjustment. Prices are subject to change without notice and all such items will be billed at prices in effect at the time of shipment. Buyer will be notified of any price increase and may cancel any undelivered portion of the order by written notice to Seller provided such written notice is received by Seller not more than 10 days after your receipt of notification of the increase. Upon such cancellation, Buyer shall have no liability to Seller for the cancelled portion of the order except as to product manufactured or in process, components procured by Seller from outside sources, and special tooling, equipment or single use raw materials procured for performance of this order.
     
    (10) Ordering & Limits. Seller may discontinue any Product(s) sold hereunder at any time, unless Buyer and Seller have otherwise agreed in a writing signed by authorized representatives of both parties.
     
    (11) Payment & Credit. Buyer will make all payments hereunder in cash, or in negotiable paper collectible at face value in the funds and at the location indicated on Seller’s invoice; late payments will interest at 1.5%/month. If Seller determines that Buyer’s financial responsibility has become impaired or otherwise unsatisfactory to Seller, Seller may require proof of financial condition, advance cash payments, COD, shorter terms, and/or the posting of satisfactory security by Buyer, and may withhold shipments until Buyer complies.
     
    (12) Taxes and Governmental Limits on Price. All prices are subject to increase from time to time to compensate for any tax, excise or levy imposed upon the products sold, or upon the manufacture, sale, transportation, or delivery of them or whenever any tax, excise, levy, law or governmental regulation has the effect, directly or indirectly, of increasing the cost of manufacture, sale or delivery.
    Buyer will reimburse Seller for all federal, state, local or other taxes, excises or charges associated with the manufacture, sale or delivery of the Product(s). If any government action or law should have the effect of establishing a maximum price on the Product(s) to be delivered, Seller may, at its option and without liability to Buyer, terminate its obligation with respect to future shipments upon thirty (30) days written notice.
     
    (13) Delays in Delivery. Seller shall not be liable or deemed in default for failure to deliver or delay in delivery due to a force majeure or any other cause beyond Seller's reasonable control. If unable to meet delivery schedules, Seller will endeavour to allocate material fairly among itself and/or its buyers, but reserves to itself final determination of the deliveries to be made without liability. Buyer will accept, as full and complete performance by Seller, deliveries in accordance with such determinations as Seller may make. Except in the case of a force majeure, if not satisfied with Seller’s determination, Buyer as its sole remedy shall have a right to terminate this contract without further obligation upon: (i) 10 days written notice; and (ii) payment for all Product received to date.
     
    (14) Indemnification. Seller will indemnify Buyer against all claims and demands for infringement of any EU patents by the Product(s) manufactured by Seller, provided the Buyer notifies Seller of any patent infringement and upon request tenders Seller the defence of the claim. Buyers who furnish specifications to Seller agree to hold Seller harmless and indemnify Seller against any claims which arise out of such specifications.
     
    (15) Safety Information. Buyer acknowledges that Seller has furnished to Buyer product information which includes warnings and safety and health information concerning the Product(s). Buyer represents and agrees that it will disseminate such information so as to give warning of possible hazards to persons whom Buyer can reasonably foresee may receive exposure to such hazards, including, but not limited to, Buyer’s employees, agents, contractors and customers.
     
    (16) Risk of Loss. Unless otherwise set forth in the Agreement, all Products sold by Seller shall be delivered FCA (Seller’s location) INCOTERMS 2010. Title to the goods shall pass to Buyer upon passage of the risk of loss; provided, however, that to the extent permitted by law, until each of the goods delivered hereunder has been paid for in full, Seller shall retain title to the goods; however, all risk of loss and responsibility for transportation and storage, taxes and duties shall transfer in accordance with the Agreement. Buyer hereby agrees that notwithstanding any estimated shipment, production or requested date(s) for the Product(s),
    Seller is not obligated to produce, deliver or ship the Product(s) by the estimated shipment, production or requested date(s). Buyer hereby agrees that unless Buyer notifies Seller in writing within ninety (90) calendar days of shipment, there shall be a presumption that Product(s) conforming to the goods ordered were received by Buyer.
     
    (17) Applicable Law and Jurisdiction. Buyer and Seller agree that the Terms and the Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Republic of Slovenia. Buyer and Seller exclude the application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. All litigation concerning the Terms, the Agreement and/or the Product(s) shall occur only in the district court of Kranj, Republic of Slovenia, and Buyer and Seller hereby consent to exclusive jurisdiction in such court.
     
    (18) Severability. In the event of illegality or invalidity of a provision of the Terms or the Agreement, the parties shall deem that provision stricken in its entirety; the balance of the Terms or the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
     
    (19) Identity. ContiTech Slovenija, d.o.o. is a corporation organized under the laws of the Republic of Slovenia with its main office address at Škofjelo ška cesta 6, 4000 Kranj, Slovenia.
