The Customer has the right to withdraw from the Purchase Contract only if there is a defect that cannot be rectified and this prevents the Goods from being used for the purpose for which the Goods are normally intended.
8.4. The agreed period for settling a complaint is 3 months.
8.5.

8.6. The exercise of the right to a reasonable discount on the Purchase Price pursuant to Article 8.3 hereof shall not affect the Customer’s obligation to pay the full Purchase Price for the Goods, i.e. the Customer is also obliged to pay the portion of the Purchase Price that, if applicable, would correspond to its right to a discount.

11.2. Neither of the Parties shall be liable for any breach of obligations resulting from the Purchase Contract, except for the obligation to pay the Purchase Price, provided that such a failure or delay is caused by an extraordinary unforeseeable and insurmountable obstacle that occurs independently of the will of the obligor and prevents it from fulfilling its obligation (hereinafter referred to as “Force Majeure”). An obstacle resulting from personal circumstances of the obligor, or which does not come into existence until the obligor is already in default on the performance of an agreed obligation, or an obstacle that the obligor is obliged to overcome, shall not release the Party from its responsibility to perform the respective obligation.
11.3. A Party that has violated, violates or is expected, in light of all known facts, to violate any of its obligations under the Purchase Contract as a result of a force majeure event is obliged to immediately inform the other Party about such a violation or event, and to exert every effort to avert such an event or its consequences and to eliminate them.

12.2. The Supplier shall be entitled to compensation for damage caused by failure to pay a monetary debt, even if it is covered by default interest. The contractual penalty clause pursuant to Article 12.1 hereof is without prejudice to the right to damages arising from a breach of the obligation to pay the Purchase Price, and the Parties hereby expressly exclude the application of Section 2050 of the Civil Code.
12.3. Pursuant to Section 1806 of the Civil Code, the Parties hereby expressly agree to interest on default interest.
12.4. In addition to default interest and contractual penalty, the Customer shall be obliged to pay all additional costs incurred by the Supplier as a result of Customer’s default. Additional costs include, in particular, costs incurred additionally as a result of storage, insurance of the Goods and costs associated with a possible claim (hereinafter referred to as “Additional Costs”).
12.5. If the Customer defaults in payment of any amounts resulting from the Contract, Purchase Order or any other contracts entered into with the Supplier, the Supplier shall be entitled to terminate any further deliveries of the Goods under the Purchase Contract with immediate effect and, as the case may be, to withdraw from the Purchase Contract. Failure by the Supplier to deliver according to the preceding clause shall not constitute a breach of the Contract, and the Supplier shall not bear liability for any resulting damage.
12.6. If the Customer fails to pay the Supplier the full due Purchase Price, including any due default interest, contractual penalty and Additional Costs charged to the Customer within the additional period (as further defined in this Article), the Supplier is entitled to sell the unpaid Goods to a third party after giving prior notice to the Customer, and the difference between the Purchase Price, including interest payable, the contractual penalty and the additional costs charged to the Customer to be paid by the Customer and the price paid by the relevant third party shall be paid by the Customer as compensation for lost profit.
