In case of culpable violation of a so-called cardinal obligation, i.e. a contractual obligation which makes the proper performance of the contract possible in the first place and on the fulfillment of which the Buyer may rely, and in the case of defects which have been fraudulently concealed or the absence of which has been guaranteed, the Seller's liability shall be limited to the foreseeable and insurable damage typical for the contract. The Seller shall assign any claims under liability or product liability insurance to the Buyer, who shall indemnify the Seller against any liability to the extent of the insurance coverage. Further claims for damages and reimbursement of expenses by the purchaser are excluded, in particular also with regard to consequential damages such as loss of profit.
10.2 The procedural burden of proof shall remain unaffected by the above provisions.
10.3 The liability of the ordinary vicarious agent for damages caused by grossly negligent misconduct is excluded.
- impossibility, inability, delay in delivery
11.1 The Buyer may withdraw from the contract without setting a deadline if the entire performance becomes finally impossible for the Seller before the transfer of risk. In addition, the Buyer may withdraw from the contract if, in the case of an order, the execution of a part of the delivery becomes impossible and the Buyer has a justified interest in refusing the partial delivery. If this is not the case, the Buyer shall pay the contract price attributable to partial delivery. The same applies in case of incapacity of the seller. In all other respects, the liability of the Seller shall be determined exclusively in accordance with Clause 10. If the impossibility or inability occurs during the delay in acceptance or if the Buyer is solely or predominantly responsible for these circumstances, the Buyer shall remain obligated to counter-performance.
11.2 If the Buyer sets the Seller - taking into account the statutory exceptions - a reasonable deadline for performance after the due date and if the deadline is not met, the Buyer shall be entitled to rescind the contract within the scope of the statutory provisions. Further claims following a delay in delivery shall be determined exclusively in accordance with Sections 5 and 11.
- Statute of Limitations
12.1 Unless the law mandatorily prescribes a longer period, all claims shall become statute-barred.
Warranty claims in 12 months from the transfer of risk.
12.2 In the event of rectification and or new delivery, the limitation period shall be 6 months, but shall not end before the expiry of the original limitation period.
12.3 A preclusion period of 12 months from knowledge of the damage and the damaging party shall apply to claims for damages by the Buyer.
- retention of title
13.1 The Seller retains title and extended title to the delivery item until receipt of all payments arising from the business relationship with the Buyer. The foreign buyer shall secure the retention of title as far as possible in an equivalent manner in accordance with local law and shall be obliged to inform the seller of any acts of cooperation required for this purpose. In the event of conduct in breach of contract on the part of the Buyer, in particular in the event of default in payment, the Seller shall be entitled, after setting a reasonable deadline, to take back the purchased item. The taking back of the purchased item by the seller does not constitute a withdrawal from the contract. The seizure of the purchased item by the seller always constitutes a withdrawal from the contract. After taking back the object of sale, the Seller shall be entitled to realize it; the proceeds of realization shall be credited against the Buyer's liabilities - less reasonable costs of realization.
13.2 The Buyer shall be obliged to treat the purchased goods with care; in particular, he shall be obliged to insure them adequately at his own expense against fire, water and theft damage at replacement value.
13.3 Pledging, transfer by way of security or other obligations of the reserved goods are not permitted. In the event of attachments or other interventions by third parties, the buyer must notify the seller immediately in writing so that the latter can file a third-party objection action in accordance with § 771 ZPO. Insofar as the third party is not able to reimburse the seller for the court and out-of-court costs of an action pursuant to § 771 ZPO, the buyer is liable for the loss incurred by the seller.
13.4 The Buyer shall be entitled to resell the object of sale in the ordinary course of business; however, he hereby assigns to the Seller all claims in the amount of the final invoice amount (including VAT).) of the Seller's claim accruing to him from the resale against his customers or third parties, irrespective of whether the object of sale has been resold without or after processing. The claim assigned to the Seller by the Buyer in advance shall also relate to the acknowledged balance and, in the event of the Buyer's insolvency, to the then existing "causal" balance. The purchaser remains authorized to collect this claim even after the assignment. This shall not affect the Seller's right to collect the claim itself. However, the Seller undertakes not to collect the claim as long as the Buyer meets its payment obligations from the proceeds collected, is not in default of payment
and, in particular, no application for the opening of insolvency proceedings has been filed or payments have been suspended. If this is the case, however, the Seller may demand that the Buyer informs him of the assigned claims and their debtors, provides all information necessary for collection, hands over the relevant documents and informs the debtors (third parties) of the assignment.
13.5 The Seller undertakes to release the securities to which it is entitled at the Buyer's request to the extent that the realizable value of its securities exceeds the claims to be secured by more than 10%; the Seller shall be responsible for selecting the securities to be released.
14 Secrecy, Intellectual Property Rights and Infringement of
industrial property rights
14.1 The Buyer undertakes to sell the goods delivered by the Seller only on its premises and at the address specified in the order to the final customers. Without the written consent of the seller, the distribution of the goods, except on its own online sales platforms, as well as the transfer of goods to resellers, whether for sale, exchange or free of charge is prohibited.
14.2 For each infringement of clause 14.1, the Buyer undertakes to pay a contractual penalty of EUR 15,000.00 for each individual case of infringement. This does not affect the seller's right to claim further damages. The buyer is at liberty to prove a lesser extent of damage.

These may not be copied without written consent, nor used for purposes other than those stipulated in the contract, nor made accessible to third parties (including through inquiries), nor published. The same shall apply to any manufacturing and trade secrets of the Seller which are made available to the Buyer or otherwise become known to the Buyer.
14.4 The Buyer acknowledges the Seller's copyrights and other proprietary rights. In the case of supplied software, this protection also extends to any copies. The granting of sublicenses is not permitted without the written consent of the Seller.
14.5 These obligations shall only cease to apply in respect of such data that were demonstrably already in the possession of the Buyer prior to the transmission by the Seller, are publicly known to the Buyer by a third party authorized to do so, irrespective of the subject sales and delivery transaction, and are not the fault of the Buyer.
