If these preconditions are not duly fulfilled on time, the delivery periods shall be extended to an appropriate extent; this provision shall not apply if we are solely responsible for the delay.

The customer shall not be entitled to withdraw from the contract. In cases involving legally binding agreed delivery periods, § 10 shall apply to any compensation claims in connection with the delay in delivery.

· Non-reproducible software defects.
8.7 Liability for defects shall not include defects which are attributable to design specifications of the customer or specifications of the customer relating to use of a certain material. Defect claims can also not be asserted if the goods are changed by a third party or through the installation of foreign parts, unless the defect has no causal connection with the change or use.
8.8 In the case of defective goods or parts thereof that were not manufactured by us, we can be released from our liability by assigning our own warranty claims against the supplier to the customer.

9.5 Claims by the customer shall be excluded if he is responsible for infringing the property right or he does not provide us with adequate support in defending third-party claims.
9.6 Claims by the customer shall also be excluded if the products are manufactured according to the customer’s specifications or instructions, or the (alleged) infringement of the property right stems from use in connection with another product not originating from our company or the products are used in a way which we could not have foreseen.
9.7 Any further claims or claims other than those covered in this § 8 by the customer due to the infringement of the property rights of third parties shall be excluded if legally permissible.
11. Reservation of title
11.1 Until such time as all our existing claims against the customer have been completely fulfilled, we shall be entitled to arrange for reservation of title of the supplied goods to be entered in the Reservation of Title Register at the customer’s domicile. The customer shall be obliged to cooperate in entering the goods in the Reservation of Title Register and must inform us immediately if he or the goods change domicile.
11.2 The customer shall be entitled to process or combine the goods which we own in the course of his normal business operations. In order to safeguard our reservation of title, we shall acquire joint ownership to the items produced through processing or combining. The customer shall hereby transfer this joint ownership to us. The customer shall be obliged to store the goods which we jointly own free of charge.
11.3 The customer shall be entitled to resell the goods in Switzerland in return for a cash payment or under reservation of title. In order to safeguard our reservation of title, the customer shall assign to us all claims, including incidental rights, accruing to him from the resale of the goods, irrespective of whether or not the goods were reprocessed. The customer shall be entitled to collect the assigned claim. We can revoke the customer’s rights under this clause if he fails to duly comply with his contractual obligations towards us. These rights shall also expire without express revocation if the customer stops making his payments for longer than a temporary period of time.
11.4 At our request, the customer must inform us immediately in writing to whom he sold the goods in our ownership or joint ownership and what claims accrue to him from the resale. The customer must also issue us at his expense officially certified documents relating to the assignment of the claims.
11.5 The customer shall have no entitlement to other disposals of the goods which are under reservation of title or which we jointly own, or to disposals of the claims assigned to us. The customer must inform us immediately about any distraints or other legal impairments of the goods or claims belonging fully or partially to us. Unless they are paid by third parties, the customer shall bear all costs incurred in removing third-party access to goods which are under reservation of title or which we jointly own.
11.6 In the event of a delay in payment or any other culpable infringement of material contractual obligations by the customer, we shall be entitled to demand the return of the goods which are under reservation of title or which we jointly own. If we make use of this right, withdrawal from the contract shall only then occur if we expressly declare this.
11.7 An application to open insolvency proceedings shall entitle us to withdraw from the contract and demand the immediate return of the delivery.
11.8 If the total value of our existing collateral exceeds our claims by more than 10%, we shall release – at the request of the customer – an amount of this collateral of our own choosing.
12.1 All business or technical information originating from us (including characteristics which can be taken from handed-over goods or software, and other know-how or experience) must not be disclosed to third parties as long as and insofar as it is not proved to be public knowledge or was not approved by us for resale by the customer. The information must only be made available at the customer’s own company to persons who have to be involved in its use and who shall also be obliged to maintain secrecy; the information shall remain our exclusive property. The information must not be reproduced or used for commercial purposes without our prior written approval. At our request, all information originating from us (if applicable, including produced copies or recordings) and loaned items must be returned to us or destroyed immediately and in full.
12.2 We reserve all rights to the information described in § 12.1 (including copyrights and the right to apply for industrial property rights, e.g. patents, registered designs, semiconductor protection, etc.).
13. Payment terms
13.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payment must be made in Swiss Francs (CHF) within 30 days from the date of the invoice without any deductions. However, we can also make our services dependent on gradual payment (e.g. through cash on delivery or direct bank debit) or an advance payment.
13.2 The customer’s payment obligation shall only be fulfilled when the amount is credited to our post office giro account or our bank account (value date). Acceptance of bills of exchange or cheques as a means of payment shall be at our discretion. In the case of bills of exchange or cheques, the payment obligation shall be deemed to have been fulfilled when the amounts are credited to us after encashment.
13.3 We shall be entitled to offset payments against the oldest due claim.
13.4 When the payment period expires without being used, the customer shall be in default without a warning. If the customer fails to pay by the due date, all our claims from our business relations with the customer shall become due for payment immediately. This right shall not be excluded through extension of the period for payment or acceptance of bills of exchange or cheques.
13.5 Late payment or other changes in the customer’s circumstances, which endanger payment of our claims, shall entitle us:
· To withdraw from the contract at any time and stop our contractual services or demand their return by the customer
· To immediately enforce all existing claims against the customer, irrespective of their due date, or demand collateral for the claims
· To only furnish outstanding services in return for an advance payment, irrespective of the agreements concluded for these services
· To demand compensation from the customer.
13.7 The customer shall only be entitled to retain payments or offset counterclaims if his counterclaims are undisputed or are final and absolute.
13.8 The place of performance for all payments to be made by the customer shall be our head office.
