Delivery: Delivery of the equipment shall be effected when the equipment is turned over to the transporter at the place of delivery. Upon delivery the equipment shall be at the risk of the Purchaser in all respects.
Property of the equipment: The property of the equipment shall pass to the Purchaser when, and only when, payment in full has been received by 4N.
Transport and installation: The Purchaser will undertake at its own expense the transport, relocation and commissioning of the equipment. The Purchaser shall at its own expense be fully responsible for all maintenance required for the equipment after delivery.
Delay: In case the delivery date is exceeded more than 30 days the Purchaser is entitled to cancel the contract unless force majeure is in question. With such a delay the Purchaser may claim damages for a loss suffered if the Purchaser proves that 4N has shown gross negligence.
4N's responsibility for the loss that the Purchaser may suffer as consequence of the delay or of the lack of delivery shall under no circumstance exceed 10% of 4N's sales price to the Purchaser.
Removal of equipment: The removal of the equipment from the Site to the new premises shall be completed within a period of 14 days of the date which 4N shall inform the Purchaser is the delivery date, and if the Purchaser shall fail to remove the equipment within such period 4N shall thereupon be at liberty to procure that it is removed and stored at the expense of the Purchaser and the Purchaser shall immediately thereafter become liable to 4N for the whole of the purchase price after deducting any deposit.
Notification of defects: The Purchaser is obliged to examine the equipment promptly on receipt and notification of defects shall be made in writing no later than 30 days upon receipt of the equipment.
After this period the Purchaser can only make notification of defects, which could not be determined at such first-hand examination. Notification of defects shall be made in writing without any unfounded delay after determination of the shortcomings.
Upon the passing over of the risk of the equipment to the Purchaser 4N shall bear no responsibility for shortcomings, apart from the liabilities set out in this clause. For that reason the Purchaser is not entitled to cancel the contract, claim damages or sustain any other claim of non-fulfillment.
4N clearly disclaims responsibility for any indirect losses such as consequential loss, loss of time, loss of profits or the like that the shortcomings may have caused the Purchaser.
Force Majeure: The following circumstances result in exemption from liability when occurring after the conclusion of the contract and preventing its fulfillment:
Labor disputes, strikes, lockouts and any other circumstance on which the parties have no influence such as fire, war, mobilization, unforeseen military calling-up, sabotage acts, requisition, impounding, currency restrictions, import or export prohibition, rising, disturbances, lack of working plants, general lack of goods, restrictions in the means of motive power, and lack of deliveries from sub-contractors or delay in such deliveries as described in any of the circumstances in this clause.
4N is entitled to inform the Purchaser in writing that the contract is cancelled when a fulfillment hereof in reasonable time is impossible due to one or more of the circumstances stated in this clause.
Product liability: In case a delivery from 4N causes damage, 4N is responsible to the Purchaser for personal injury if proved that the injury is caused by 4N's fault or negligence.
In relation to the Purchaser 4N is not liable for damage on chattels personal or real property, just as 4N is not liable for any loss of profits, lost wages or any other indirect or diverted loss.
In the event that 4N may be held liable to third party according to the rules and regulations of product liability or according to general regulations on damage the Purchaser shall identify 4N as far as such a liability reaches beyond the limits stated above. The Purchaser is obliged to have prosecutions against itself filed at the same court that tries the case of claims for damages against 4N in the event of damage claimed to be caused by a mistake in one of 4N's deliveries.
Warranties: 4N warrants that the equipment in question is sold free of all encumbrances, liens, charges and claims whatsoever.
Other arrangements: The equipment will, if available, be supplied with a MSQ/MAQ-letter in accordance with Manufacturer's rules and regulations.

Assignment: The contract will not be assignable by the Purchaser without 4N's written consent, which 4N shall be entitled to its discretion to refuse.
