9. Claims for Defects (Warranty)

a. Warranty in relation to Consumers: The default rules under the applicable laws shall apply.

a. Warranty in relation to Entrepreneurs:

(aa) Where the customer acts as a merchant within the meaning of section 1 of the German Commercial Code ("Handelsgesetzbuch", abbr. "HGB") the customer shall inspect the goods immediately after receipt of same. It shall, after receipt of the goods, notify us of apparent defects without undue delay or - should the defect become apparent only at a later point of time - without undue delay after the discovery of the defect. The timely dispatch of the notice shall suffice to preserve the customer's rights. Where the customer fails to timely notify us in accordance with the aforesaid, the goods shall be deemed approved by the customer; this shall not apply in case that we fraudulently concealed the defect.

(bb) If and to the extent of a defect of the purchased goods, we shall, in the first place, provide warranty by way of cure. We shall perform such cure, at our choice, either by way of remedying the defect or by way of replacement delivery. Should such aforesaid cure fail, the customer shall be entitled to abate the remuneration or - in case of significant defects - to terminate the contract.

(cc) The warranty period for customer's claims regarding defects of the goods shall be one year from delivery of same to the customer. This shall not apply to customer's claims (i) for damages directed at a compensation for a bodily injury or for an injury to health, and where such claims are based on a defect for which we are responsible, or (ii) based on gross negligence of us or of a person assisting us in the performance of our obligations; the aforesaid claims defined under the aforesaid subsections (i) and (ii) of this sentence shall be subject to the applicable limitation period provided for under the applicable laws.

10. Liability limitation

Our liability for damages shall be subject to the following:In case of intention or gross negligence, also on part of any persons assisting us in the performance of our obligations, we shall be liable in accordance with the applicable laws. The same shall apply in case of a damage caused by negligent violation of life, body or health.In case of a damage to property or a financial damage, we ourselves as well as any persons assisting us in the performance of our obligations, shall only be liable in case of breach of an essential contractual obligation, subject, however, to a maximum amount equal to the damage which was foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the contract and typical for the contract; essential contractual obligations within the aforesaid meaning are such obligations the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for performance of the contract and which the other party may generally expect to be complied with.

Otherwise, any liability for damages of any kind, regardless of the respective underlying cause of action, shall be excluded, except if and to the extent that we are liable under mandatory applicable laws, including without limitation because of the acceptance of a guarantee or under the German Product Liability Act ("Produkthaftungsgesetz").

11. Choice of law, jurisdiction

German law shall apply exclusively. The UN sales convention shall not apply. Where the customer is a consumer, such choice of law shall only apply to the extent that it does not affect mandatory provisions of the country where the customer has its habitual place of abode.

For dealings with merchants, legal persons under public law or separate estates under public law, the courts of our place of business (Gütenbach) shall have jurisdiction over all conflicts arising hereunder. However, we shall remain entitled, at our choice, to file a lawsuit at customer's place of business instead.
