Article 11 – Force Majeure
- If the seller is unable to fulfil his obligations under the agreement, or is unable to do so on time or properly, due to force majeure, he shall not be liable for any damage suffered by the buyer.
- Force majeure shall in any case be taken to mean any circumstance which the Seller could not take into account at the time of concluding the Agreement and as a result of which the normal performance of the Agreement cannot reasonably be required by the Buyer, such as illness, war or threat of war, civil war and riots, acts of war, sabotage, terrorism, energy failure, flooding, earthquake, fire, sit-down strikes, workers’ exclusion, amended government measures, transport difficulties, and other disruptions in the Seller’s business.

- If the force majeure continues for more than three months, the buyer has the right to terminate the agreement with immediate effect. Dissolution can only be done by registered letter.
Article 12 – Transfer of rights
- Rights of one party under this Agreement may not be transferred without the prior written consent of the other party. This provision is considered to be a clause with property law effect as referred to in Article 3:83, paragraph 2, of the Dutch Civil Code.
Article 13 – Retention of title and right of retention
- The items present at the Seller’s premises and delivered items and parts shall remain the property of the Seller until the Buyer has paid the entire agreed price. Until that time, the Seller may invoke its retention of title and take back the goods.
- If the agreed amounts to be paid in advance are not paid or not paid on time, the seller has the right to suspend the work until the agreed part is paid. There is then a creditor default. A delayed delivery in that case cannot be held against the seller.
- The Seller shall not be entitled to pledge or otherwise encumber the goods falling under its retention of title.
- The Seller undertakes to insure the goods delivered to the Buyer under retention of title and to keep them insured against fire, explosion and water damage as well as against theft and to make the policy available for inspection on demand.
- If goods have not yet been delivered, but the agreed advance payment or price has not been paid in accordance with the agreement, the Seller has the right of retention. The item will then not be delivered until the buyer has paid in full and in accordance with the agreement.
- In case of liquidation, insolvency or suspension of payment of the buyer, the obligations of the buyer are immediately due and payable.
Article 14 – Liability

Article 15 – Duty to complain

- If a complaint is justified, the seller is obliged to repair and possibly replace the good.
Article 16 – Guarantees
- If warranties are included in the agreement, the following shall apply. Seller warrants that the sold item meets the agreement, will function without defects and is suitable for the use that Buyer intends to make of it. This warranty is for a period of two calendar years from the date of receipt of the sold property by the buyer.
- The purpose of the aforementioned guarantee is to create a risk division between the Seller and the Buyer such that the consequences of a breach of guarantee are always fully at the Seller’s expense and risk and that the Seller can never invoke Article 6:75 of the Dutch Civil Code with respect to a breach of guarantee. The provisions of the previous sentence also apply if the infringement was known to the Buyer or could have been known by conducting research.
- The said warranty does not apply if the defect is the result of injudicious or improper use or if – without permission – the buyer or third parties have made changes or tried to make changes or have used the purchased item for purposes for which it is not intended.
- If the warranty provided by Seller relates to a good produced by a third party, the warranty is limited to the warranty provided by that producer.
