Terms of Sale and Supply of Kurt Breuning IRCO Maschinenbau GmbH, Steinenbronn

I. General

All supplies and services are based on these terms and conditions and any separate contractual agreements. Alternative purchase terms of the buyer will not be deemed applicable even if an order is accepted. In the absence of any particular agreement, a contract shall come about upon our written confirmation of order. Drawings, illustrations, dimensions, weights or other specifications will only be binding if this is expressly agreed in writing. Deviations or modifications will only be effective if agreed in writing. The vendor reserves title and copyright to quotations, cost proposals, drawings and other documents. They must not be made available to third parties. Losses suffered by the supplier as a result of breaches hereof will be passed on to the buyer. Operating instructions for the vendor’s machines are available in German and English. In the event of deliveries to countries in which one of these languages is not the national language, the buyer must bear the costs of translating the operating instructions into the national language in addition to the purchase price.

II. Delivery period, delays in delivery

The delivery period will be as stated in the agreements reached between the vendor and the buyer. Observance of the delivery period assumes that all commercial and technical questions have been clarified. The delivery period will otherwise be extended accordingly unless the vendor is at fault for the delay. Observance of the delivery period is subject to the vendor having obtained correct and timely supplies. The vendor will notify the buyer immediately of any impending delay. If delivery is rendered impossible, compensation for non-performance shall be precluded unless the vendor has acted with intent or gross negligence. The delivery period will be deemed observed if the merchandise has left the vendor’s plant, or its readiness for dispatch has been notified, by the time the period expires. If an acceptance test is to take place, the date of acceptance, failing which, notification of readiness for acceptance, will prevail except in the case of justified refusal to accept. If the shipment or acceptance of the merchandise is delayed for reasons within the control of the buyer, he will be charged the costs incurred as a result of the delay, beginning one month after notification of readiness for dispatch or acceptance. If delivery becomes impossible during this delay or if the buyer is solely or largely responsible for these circumstances, he shall remain liable for his consideration. If non-observance of the delivery period is the result of force majeure, labour disputes or other events outside the sphere of influence of the vendor, the delivery period will be extended accordingly. The vendor will inform the buyer immediately of the start and end of such circumstances. A delay in performance within the meaning of II. 6 Sentence 1 will entitle the vendor to withdraw wholly or partially from the contract in respect of that part of the contract not yet performed. If the vendor delays and the buyer suffers a loss thereby, the buyer will be entitled to demand a lump sum in compensation for the delay. The compensation shall be 0.5 % for each complete week of delay, but no more in total than 5 %, of the value of that part of the complete delivery that cannot be used in time or according to contract as a result of the delay. In the event of delay the vendor will only be liable to make good the typical reasonably foreseeable losses under such a contract provided that at least gross negligence on the part of non-managerial employees, and otherwise slight negligence, is proven.

III. Prices and payment

Quotes given by the vendor will apply only for the scope of delivery for that particular enquiry. Quotes given by the vendor will be valid for 30 days. The prices agreed at the time the contract was formed will apply provided that delivery is made within the next 6 months. In the absence of any agreement to the contrary, prices are quoted ex works including loading in the works, but exclusive of value-added tax, packing, unloading, customs and transport insurance. Supplies of spare parts and single parts as well as invoices for assembly work are payable immediately without deduction. Interest will be levied at 8 % above the base rate in the event of late payment. Discounting and bill expenses shall be borne by the buyer. If a lump sum is agreed for assembly, this sum will apply provided that the assembly work is performed within normal working hours Monday to Friday and for no more than 8 hours per day. If the buyer requests assembly work in overtime or on Saturdays / Sundays and public holidays, a suitable surcharge will be applied. The buyer has no right to demand assembly services outside normal working hours. In the event that assembly is delayed through no fault of the vendor, the costs incurred thereby shall be borne by the buyer. The buyer has the right to set off against counter-claims provided that his counter-claims are undisputed or have been declared final in a court of law. The buyer has the right to withhold payments provided that these relate to the same contractual relationship. The vendor will be entitled to credit payments initially to older debts of the customer.

IV. Passage of risk, acceptance

The risk will pass to the buyer when the merchandise has left the vendor’s premises even if part deliveries are made or the vendor has agreed to perform other services, e.g. shipping costs or delivery and erection. If shipment is delayed or fails due to circumstances not attributable to the vendor, the risk will pass to the buyer on the day of notification of readiness for dispatch. The vendor undertakes to take out at the expense of the buyer the insurance policies that the buyer requests.

V. Reservation of title

All goods will remain the property of the vendor (reserved goods) until such time as all claims, regardless of their legal foundation, including conditional claims or claims arising in the future, and whether from contracts concluded simultaneously or later, have been settled. This shall also apply if payments are made on specially designated claims. If the reserved goods are processed or indivisibly commixed with other items not belonging to the vendor, the vendor will acquire joint title to the new item in the proportion of the invoice value of the reserved goods to the invoice value of the other goods used at the time of processing or commixing. The joint title arising thereby will be deemed reserved goods within the meaning of these terms and conditions. If the goods of the vendor are combined or indivisibly commixed with other movable items to form a single entity and the other item is to be regarded as the main item, the buyer assigns to the vendor the pro rata joint title if the main item belongs to him. Otherwise the same shall apply for the item created by the processing and combination or commixture as for the reserved goods. The buyer hereby assigns to the vendor his claims arising from the resale of reserved goods. If the buyer sells the reserved goods with other items not supplied by the vendor, assignment of the claim from the resale shall apply only to the amount of the values stated in the vendor’s invoice for the relevant sold reserved goods. In the event that goods to which the vendor has a share of joint title are sold on, assignment of the claim shall apply to the amount of this share of the joint title. The assigned claims shall serve as security to the same extent as the reserved goods. The buyer is entitled to collect until such time as the relevant written instructions are received from the vendor. Assertion of the reservation of title by the vendor will only be considered withdrawal from the contract if the vendor expressly states as such in writing. If the buyer acts in breach of contract, particularly in the case of delay in payment, the vendor shall be entitled to recover the merchandise after due warning and the buyer shall be bound to surrender same. Petition for the institution of insolvency proceedings on the assets of the buyer will entitle the vendor to withdraw from the contract and to demand the immediate return of the merchandise.

VI. Warranty claims

The vendor does not warrant in any way whatsoever that the goods he supplies are suitable for the use intended by the customer and that they can be used or processed under the conditions prevailing at the customer or at his purchasers. It is the buyer’s responsibility to verify this before use or processing. Should the goods supplied by the vendor be wholly or partially defective within the meaning of § 434 BGB [German Civil Code], the buyer shall notify the vendor in writing immediately upon discovery of the defects. The buyer has a routine duty to inspect the goods supplied by the vendor for obvious defects. Obvious defects must be notified in writing within 2 weeks of delivery. If he fails to fulfil this obligation, he will not accrue any warranty rights. If the goods supplied by the vendor are defective, the vendor will be entitled to replace the defective goods with flawless goods or to improve the defective goods. The buyer shall return the defective goods to the vendor. The vendor will be entitled to effect improvement or substitute delivery; the vendor must be granted a reasonable period of time in which to do so. Should he not be given the necessary time and opportunity to effect renewed performance, the vendor shall be released from his liability for the consequences arising therefrom. Only in urgent cases of a risk to operational safety or to avoid disproportionately greater damage shall the buyer be entitled, after informing the vendor, to rectify the defect himself or through a third party and to demand reimbursement from the vendor of the necessary expenses. Replaced parts will become the property of the vendor. Of the direct costs arising through the improvement or substitute delivery – if the complaint proves to be justified – the costs of the replacement part including shipment will be borne by the vendor. The vendor will also bear the costs of removal and installation and the costs of any necessary provision of the fitters and auxiliary workers required, including travel expenses, unless this would constitute a disproportionate burden on the vendor. If the defect is a minor one, the buyer will only have the right to a reduction in the contract price. The right to a reduction in the contract price shall otherwise remain precluded. No warranty is offered in the following particular cases: Inexpert or unsuitable handling or operation, deficient assembly or startup by the customer or a third party, natural wear and tear, deficient or negligent treatment, unsuitable resources, chemical, electrochemical or electrical influences or irregular maintenance.

VII. Liability

If the merchandise cannot be used according to contract through the fault of the vendor and this is the result of failure to implement or the deficient implementation of suggestions and advice given before or after formation of the contract or through breaches of other secondary obligations under the contract, the regulations of Sections VI. and VII. 2 shall apply accordingly to the exclusion of further claims by the buyer.

The vendor will only be liable for losses not suffered to the merchandise itself, regardless of the legal grounds, in the case of intent and gross negligence on the part of the proprietor or managerial employees

a) in the event of a culpable loss of life, physical harm or damage to health, b) in the case of defects which the vendor maliciously failed to disclose or whose absence he guaranteed, c) in the case of defects in the merchandise if liability applies under product liability laws for personal injury or damage to property on items of private use.

In the event of a culpable breach of substantive duties under the contract, the vendor will also be liable for the gross negligence of non-managerial employees and for slight negligence, in the latter case limited to the typical reasonably foreseeable loss for such a contract. Further claims are precluded.

VIII. Limitation period

All claims of the buyer, regardless of their legal grounds, will become time-barred in 12 months. Claims to compensation in accordance with Section VIII will be governed by the statutory periods. The vendor expressly asserts his copyright, trade marks and patent rights. The buyer will be liable for any infringement of these rights. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing, the information provided to the vendor in connection with the purchase orders will be treated in confidence and must not be passed on to third parties.

IX. Applicable law, place of performance, jurisdiction

All legal relations between the vendor and the buyer shall be governed solely by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany prevailing for legal relations between domestic parties, ousting the UN Sales Convention. The place of performance for both parties hereto is Steinenbronn. If the buyer is a merchant, legal person under public law or a separate estate in public law, the agreed place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from the contractual relationship shall be Böblingen. Should a provision in these business terms be or become ineffective, this shall not affect the validity of all other provisions. The ineffective provision shall instead be replaced by an appropriate substitute regulation reflecting the spirit of this contract.
