2.1 Any offers made by Hallufix and any sales brochures produced by Hallufix shall be subject to modification and shall constitute an invitation to the customer to place an order with Hallufix.

2.3 The agreement shall come into existence when the customer receives from Hallufix the written confirmation of acceptance of the order or when the delivery is made.

3. INSTRUCTIONS IN RELATION TO CANCELLATION

3.1 The right to make a cancellation. THE CLIENT SHALL FOR A PERIOD OF ONE MONTH BE ENTITLED TO MAKE A CANCELLATION BY WITHDRAWING ITS CONTRACTUAL DECLARATION IN A WRITTEN FORM (E.G. BY LETTER, FAX OR E-MAIL) WITHOUT STATING ANY REASONS OR BY RETURNING THE GOODS. THIS PERIOD SHALL NOT BEGIN TO RUN BEFORE THE DATE ON WHICH THE GOODS ARE RECEIVED BY THE CUSTOMER AND ITS RECEIPT OF THE INSTRUCTIONS IN RELATION TO CANCELLATION IN A WRITTEN FORM. IN ORDER TO MAKE A CANCELLATION WITHIN SUCH PERIOD, IT SHALL BE SUFFICIENT TO DISPATCH THE NOTICE OF CANCELLATION OR THE GOODS IN DUE TIME.

THE COSTS OF SUCH RETURN SHALL BE BORNE BY THE CUSTOMER, IF the VALUE OF the GOODS TO BE SENT BACK DOES NOT EXCEED 40.00 EUROS OR if, IN A CASE WHERE THE GOODS TO BE RETURNED COST A HIGHER PRICE, THE CUSTOMER HAS NOT PROVIDED CONSIDERATION OR MADE ANY PARTIAL PAYMENT ON THE DATE OF CANCELLATION, UNLESS THE GOODS AS DELIVERED DO NOT CORRESPOND TO THE GOODS ORDERED. OTHERWISE THE customer SHALL NOT be required TO BEAR THE COSTS OF ANY RETURNS. GOODS WHICH ARE NOT CAPABLE OF BEING SENT IN A PACKAGE SHALL BE PICKED UP FROM THE PREMISES OF THE customer.

END OF THE INSTRUCTIONS IN RELATION TO CANCELLATION. 

4. Prices and payment
4.1 The prices payable shall be those set out in the relevant current price list.

4.2 All of the pricing information provided by Hallufix shall be denominated in euros, including value-added tax at the prevailing statutory rate and plus transport and delivery costs.

4.3 Customs charges, consular fees and any other taxes, deductions and charges etc. which are payable pursuant to any foreign laws, as well as any costs associated therewith, shall be borne by the customer.

4.4 Hallufix shall ensure that any foreign packaging, weighing and customs regulations are complied with, to the extent that the customer provides precise information in relation hereto in good time. Any additional costs associated herewith shall be borne by the customer.

4.5 To the extent that no agreement to the contrary is reached, the invoices of Hallufix shall be payable once they are received by the customer and shall be settled immediately and in full, but within ten days from the date of receipt at the latest. The place of payment shall be the place of business of Hallufix.

4.6 Should the customer’s payment be delayed, Hallufix shall be entitled to demand default interest in the amount of 5 % per annum above base rate. Hallufix shall moreover be entitled to demand a higher rate of interest on any other legal ground or to assert any other claims.

4.7 The customer shall not be entitled to withhold payment pursuant to any counterclaims or set off any counterclaims, unless such counterclaims are undisputed or have become legally binding.

5. Delivery deadlines and force majeure
5.1 To the extent that the customer does not comply with its obligations to co-operate or does not punctually make any required advance payments, delivery deadlines shall be rescheduled accordingly. In the event of a culpable breach by the customer of any obligation to co-operate, and in particular in the event of non-acceptance of the goods, Hallufix shall be entitled to demand compensation for any loss suffered and additional expense incurred as a result hereof.

5.2 In the event of any delays in delivery due to unforeseen events which are beyond the control of Hallufix (e.g. due to a strike or lock-out, a disruption of operations or a delay in the procurement of materials as the result of a late delivery by any of our suppliers for which Hallufix is not responsible – which provision shall also apply to the suppliers of Hallufix –,  civil war, acts of terror, natural disasters, bans on import and exports, energy shortages or shortages of raw materials), the agreed delivery deadlines shall be extended for the duration of the unforeseen event causing the delay. Should it prove in the long term impossible for Hallufix to make the delivery as a result of force majeure, but for a period of four months at least, Hallufix shall be released from its obligation to make such delivery. In such an event the customer shall be entitled to withdraw from the agreement.

6. Place of performance, shipment and transfer of risk
6.1 To the extent that nothing is agreed to the contrary, the place of performance shall be the place of business of Hallufix.

6.2 If, at the request of the customer Hallufix itself takes over responsibility for the shipment of the goods or entrusts such shipment to a third party, the choice of the method of shipment and the choice of route shall be at the discretion of Hallufix. Packaging and shipment costs shall be invoiced separately to the customer, unless it has been expressly agreed that such costs shall be included in the prices charged by Hallufix. Deliveries shall only be insured at the express request of the customer and at its expense.

6.3 The risk of an eventual loss or deterioration of the goods shall be transferred to the customer the moment the goods leave the distribution warehouse of Hallufix, in the case of dispatch when they are handed over to the haulier, shipper or collecting party. If shipment is delayed by the customer, risk shall be transferred to the customer once Hallufix issues a notification of readiness for shipment.

7. Retention of title
7.1 The delivered goods shall remain the property of Hallufix until they are paid for in full. In the case of an open account, each respective demand for payment of an outstanding balance shall constitute a lien.

7.2 To the extent that the liquidable value of the liens held by Hallufix in the long term exceeds the sum of all secured claims by more than 10%, Hallufix shall at its discretion release an appropriate number of the liens.

7.3 If the retention of title is not valid in the form set out above pursuant to the laws of the country of destination, the customer shall co-operate in the creation of a lien for EADS which corresponds to the laws of its country.

8. The rights of the customer in the event of defects
8.1 Should the goods prove to be defective, the customer may at its discretion and by way of supplementary performance demand that any defect is remedied or that goods are delivered which are free of defects.

8.2 Hallufix may make such supplementary performance contingent upon the customer making a part of the contractually agreed payment which corresponds to the value of the defective goods. Hallufix may refuse supplementary performance in the manner requested if it involves disproportionately high costs.

8.3 If the remedy provided by Hallufix fails on two occasions, or if Hallufix refuses to provide both types of supplementary performance, or if Hallufix does not provide supplementary performance within an appropriate period which is stipulated by the customer, the customer shall be entitled to reduce the purchase price or to withdraw from the agreement. Moreover the purchaser may in lieu of performance demand the reimbursement of unnecessary expenditure incurred by it or compensation for any loss suffered. The right of the customer to withdraw from the agreement and to the payment of compensation in lieu of performance shall not be available should the defect in the goods be merely of an insignificant nature.

8.4 The customer shall not have any rights as the result of defects which are caused by normal wear and tear or by any treatment of the goods by the customer or by third parties which does not comply with any one of the stipulations set out in the instructions for use or other written recommendations provided by Hallufix (e.g. improper use, maintenance or storage), or which are of a purely visual nature.

8.5 Any claims which may be asserted by a customer shall expire two years from the date on which the goods are delivered.

8.6 Should a consumable item (e.g. a brace) have an average life cycle which is shorter than the prescription period in accordance with this clause (e.g. three months for a brace), the rights of the purchaser which arise pursuant to any defects must be asserted within the average life cycle. In the case of consumable items supplementary performance shall be limited to the exchange of the consumable item. The statutory prescription period applicable to fraudulently concealed defects shall not be affected hereby.

9. Liability
9.1 Hallufix shall have unlimited liability for acts of intentional and gross negligence, and in the event of death, physical injury or damage to health shall also have unlimited liability for acts of simple negligence.

9.2 Furthermore Hallufix shall also only be liable for simple acts of negligence to the extent that fundamental contractual duties (cardinal obligations) are breached, which liability shall be limited to foreseeable damage which is typical for the type of agreement entered into and to a maximum amount equivalent to the value of the goods which give rise to the damage. Cardinal obligations shall be deemed to mean those obligations which the agreement imposes upon a party to the agreement in accordance with the sense and purpose of the agreement, or those obligations with which compliance actually makes it possible properly to execute the agreement and upon which compliance a party to the agreement may duly rely.

9.3 Liability for indirect and unforeseeable damage, such as damage resulting from defects, lost profit, the loss of an opportunity to make savings and financial loss pursuant to the claims of third parties shall in the event of simple acts of negligence – save in the case of death, physical injury or damage to health – be excluded.

9.4 Any liability other than the liability provided for in these General Terms & Conditions of Business shall be excluded irrespective of the legal nature of the claim which is asserted.

9.5 The limitations on or exclusions of liability in accordance with sections 9.2, 9.3 and 9.4 shall not apply in the case of strict liability which is prescribed by statute regardless of negligence or fault, and in particular pursuant to a guarantee or the Produkthaftungsgesetz (the German Product Liability Law).

9.6 To the extent that the liability of Hallufix is excluded or limited in accordance with sections 9.2, 9.3 and 9.4, such exclusion or limitation shall also apply to the personal liability of its employees, workers, committees, representatives and servants.

10. Industrial property rights and copyright
10.1 Hallufix reserves without limitation all proprietary rights, industrial property rights and copyright in illustrations, drawings, technical specifications and other documentation (hereinafter referred to as “documentation”). Third parties may only be granted access to documentation once Hallufix has given its prior written consent.

10.2 Should a third party assert any valid claim against the customer pursuant to the breach of a protected proprietary right by goods delivered by Hallufix which have been used in accordance with the agreement, Hallufix shall at its discretion and at its own expense acquire a licence to use the relevant goods, or modify the goods in such a manner that a breach of a protected proprietary right no longer exists, or exchange the goods. To the extent that it is not possible or reasonable for Hallufix to do so, the statutory rights to withdraw from the agreement or to reduce the contract price shall be available to the customer. Claims for compensation shall only exist in accordance with section 8. Any claims which may be asserted by the purchaser shall expire within the prescription period set out in section 8.5.

10.3 The obligations of Hallufix pursuant to section 10.2 shall only apply to the extent that the customer immediately informs Hallufix in writing of any claims asserted by third parties, does not accept that it bears liability for the breach and all rights in relation to the taking of measures to defend and settle such claim are reserved to Hallufix. Should the customer cease using the goods on the grounds that it wishes to mitigate damage or for any other material reason, it shall notify the third party of this fact so that no acknowledgement of a breach of a protected proprietary right is associated therewith.

10.4 The customer may submit no claim to the extent that it itself is responsible for the breach of a protected proprietary right, or to the extent that the breach of a protected proprietary right is caused by a use of the goods which Hallufix did not foresee or when the goods are modified by the customer or when they are used together with products which have not been supplied by Hallufix.

11. Applicable law, place of performance, place of jurisdiction and severability clause
11.1 Any amendments or supplements to these General Terms & Conditions of Business shall require the written form. This provision shall also apply to the amendment of this clause requiring the written form.

11.2 All legal relations between Hallufix and the customer shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany subject to the exclusion of the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (the CISG).

11.3 The sole place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising out of any commercial relationship shall be the place of business of Hallufix, to the extent that this is permitted by the law.

11.4 Should any individual provisions of these General Terms & Conditions of Business or parts hereof be or become invalid in whole or in part, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these General Terms & Conditions of Business. In place of the invalid provision the parties shall insert a valid provision which from a factual, legal and commercial perspective replicates as closely as possible the invalid provision. The same procedure shall be followed should these General Terms & Conditions of Business prove not to contain a provision which they should contain.

1. Area of Application
1.1 To the extent that nothing else is expressly agreed, the following general terms and conditions of business (hereinafter, “AGBs”) exclusively apply to all delivery transactions of Hallufix AG, (hereinafter, “Hallufix”). Terms and conditions of business of the purchaser that are to the contrary to or deviate from the AGBs of Hallufix are not recognized, unless Hallufix expressly agrees to their applicability in writing. Without any reservation, the AGBs of Hallufix are applicable even if Hallufix undertakes a delivery with knowledge of the terms and conditions of business that are contrary to or deviate from these AGBs.

1.2 The following AGBs of Hallufix exclusively apply in respect of companies, legal entities under public law and special funds under public law.

3.4 Hallufix shall arrange for adhering to foreign packaging, weighing and customs regulations, to the extent that the purchaser provides exact information for this in a timely manner. The purchaser is to bear the associated extra costs.

3.5 To the extent that nothing else is agreed, all invoices of Hallufix are due for payment upon the purchaser’s receipt and are to be settled immediately (but at latest within 10 days) after receipt, without any deduction. The place of payment is the registered place of business of Hallufix.

3.7 The purchaser is not entitled to withhold payments based on counterclaims or offset payments with counterclaims, unless the counterclaims are undisputed or legally determined.

4. Delivery Dates, Force Majeure
4.1 If the purchaser does not perform its cooperation obligations and/or advance payments in a timely manner, the delivery dates are to be correspondingly postponed. Upon any culpable violation of a cooperation obligation by the purchaser (particularly non-acceptance of the goods), Hallufix is entitled to require compensation for the damages and additional expenditures arising thereby.

4.2 If Hallufix is in delay, the purchaser can require compensation for each completed week of delay in the amount of 0.5% (but at the most of a total of 5%) of the portion of the price that is allotted to the delivery that occurred too late.

4.3 Upon a delay in delivery due to any unforeseeable event that is outside the sphere of influence of Hallufix (e.g., any strike or lawful lockout, any operational disturbance, any delay in the procurement of materials based on any non-punctual delivery by any Hallufix suppliers – including Hallufix itself – that is not attributable to Hallufix, any civil war, any act of terrorism, any natural catastrophe, any import or export prohibition, any scarcity of energy or raw materials), the agreed periods for delivery are to be extended for the duration of the hindrance. If, as a consequence of an act of force majeure, it is permanently impossible (but at least for a period of time of four months) for Hallufix to make a delivery, it will be released from its delivery obligation. In any such event, the purchaser is entitled to withdraw from the contract.

5. Place of Performance, Shipment, Passage of the Risk
5.1 To the extent that nothing else is agreed, the place of performance is the registered place of business of Hallufix.

5.2 If, at the request of the purchaser, Hallufix itself or a third party assigned by it undertakes the shipment of the goods, the choice of the means and routes of transportation are at the discretion of Hallufix. Packaging and shipment expenses will be invoiced to the purchaser separately, unless, based on an express agreement, such costs are contained in the prices of Hallufix. Deliveries will be insured only at the express request of the purchaser and at its charge.

5.3 The risks of accidental loss and of the accidental deterioration of the goods pass to the purchaser at the point of time at which the goods leave the distribution warehouse of Hallufix or, where shipment has been made, upon the delivery to the forwarder, freight carrier or collector (also for transport with the purchaser’s means of transportation). If the shipment is delayed by the purchaser, the risk passes to the purchaser upon the notification of readiness for shipment by Hallufix.

6. Retention of Title
6.1 Until full payment, the goods that are delivered remain in the ownership of Hallufix. If there are ongoing invoices, the goods secure the particular payment balance request of Hallufix.

6.2 To the extent that the realisable value of the security rights of Hallufix continuously exceeds the amount of all secured claims by more than 10%, Hallufix, at its choice, shall release a corresponding portion of its security rights.

6.3 The purchaser is not entitled to pledge or convey for security the goods delivered by Hallufix. Nonetheless, if a third party acquires rights to the secured property, then the purchaser hereby assigns to Hallufix all its rights to the secured property that arise thereby. Hallufix accepts the assignment. The purchaser is obligated to immediately inform Hallufix if, regarding the secured property, any pledge, seizure or other disposition takes places on the part of a third party.

6.4 The purchaser is entitled to resell the goods delivered by Hallufix in the ordinary course of business only on the condition that it receives payment from its customer or it sells such goods only under the reservation that ownership does not pass to the customer only until complete payment. In any such event, the purchaser hereby assigns all receivables from the resale of the secured property, including any payment balance requests, to Hallufix. Hallufix accepts the assignment. In any such event, the purchaser is obligated to deliver to Hallufix a list of the obligors for the assigned receivables, with all information and pertinent documents necessary for collection.

6.5 As long as the purchaser duly fulfills its contract obligations vis-à-vis Hallufix, it is entitled to collect on the receivables that have been assigned to Hallufix for security, under the condition that, from the incoming funds, the satisfaction of the purchase price clams of Hallufix have priority. In the event of the continuous delay of payment of the purchaser and upon each material degradation of its commercial situation that occurs, particularly cessation of payment, protest of a bill, etc., the rights of the buyer to resell the goods subject to retention and collect the assigned receivables expire. In any such event, the purchaser is obligated to disclose the assignment to the debtors of the assigned receivables and require payment to Hallufix up to the amount of the purchase price claims to which Hallufix is entitled. Moreover, in any such event, Hallufix is entitled to disclose the assignment and require payment to Hallufix up to the amount of the purchase price claims to which Hallufix is entitled. In any such event, the purchaser is obligated to deliver to Hallufix a list of the obligors for the assigned receivables, with all information and pertinent documents necessary for collection.

6.6 If the retention of title in the preceding form is not effective under the laws of the country of destination, then the purchaser must participate in the substantiation of corresponding security rights for EADS under the regulations of its country.

7. Rights of the Customer upon Defects
7.1 For the determination of any defects, the purchaser must immediately examine the goods after receipt of delivery and, if an obvious defect appears, notify Hallufix of same in writing within one week of the receipt of the delivery.

7.2 The purchaser must notify Hallufix of any non-obvious defects at the latest within one year of the receipt of the delivery. If the customer neglects the exclusion periods set forth in Numbers 7.1 and/or 7.2, the goods will be deemed to be approved, with the consequence that the customer loses its defect rights under Numbers 7.3 and 7.5.

7.3 If the goods turn out to be unsatisfactory, at its choice, the customer can require the elimination of the defect or the delivery of a defect-free item as subsequent performance.

7.4 Hallufix may make the subsequent performance dependent on the purchaser paying a portion of the contractually owed compensation that corresponds to the value of the defective goods. Hallufix may refuse the selected type of subsequent performance if it is associated with disproportionate costs.

7.5 If a rectification of defects by Hallufix fails twice, Hallufix refuses both types of subsequent performance or Hallufix does not provide the subsequent performance within an appropriate period set by the purchaser, the purchaser has the right to reduce the purchase price or withdraw from the contract. Moreover, instead of the service, the purchaser may require compensation for futile expenditures or compensation for damages. The rights of the purchaser to withdrawal and compensation for damages instead of the service are barred if the defect of the goods is merely insignificant.

7.6 The purchaser is not entitled to any rights that are based on defects that are only of a visual nature, were caused by normal wear and tear, or were caused by handling of the goods by the purchaser or a third party that did not correspond to the guidelines of the operating instructions or other written recommendations on use on the part of Hallufix (e.g., improper use, maintenance or storage).

7.7 The claims of the purchaser are time-barred one year after receipt of the delivery of the goods.

7.8 If an expendable part (e.g., a tape binding) possesses an average life span that is shorter than the period of limitation under this provision, the defect rights of the purchaser are to be asserted within the average life span. The statutory period of limitation for fraudulently concealed defects remains unaffected.

8. Liability
8.1 Without limitation, Hallufix is liable for intentional acts and gross negligence in the event of injury to life, body or health, even for any form of ordinary negligence.

8.2 In all other respects, to the extent that material contractual obligations (material obligations) are violated, Hallufix is liable solely for ordinary negligence, which is limited to damages that are contractually anticipated and foreseeable, but at the most of up to the exchange value of the goods that triggered the damages. Material obligations are understood to be such obligations that the contract must impart to the contracting parties according to its meaning and purpose or the fulfilment of which generally facilities the proper implementation of the contract and the adherence to which the contracting parties may regularly rely on.

8.3 For any event of ordinary negligence (except for any injury to life, body or health), any liability for indirect and unforeseeable damages, along with consequential damages, lost profits, missed savings and financial losses based on claims of third parties, is barred.

8.4 Without consideration for the legal nature of the asserted claim, any additional liability provided in these General Terms and Conditions of Business is barred.

8.5 The liability limitations and/or exclusions under Numbers 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4 are not applicable to statutory liability that is independent of fault (particularly arising from a warranty or under product liability law).

8.6 To the extent that the liability of Hallufix is barred or limited under Numbers 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4, this also applies to the personal liability of its appointees, employees, governing bodies, representatives and vicarious agents.

9. Industrial Property Rights and Copyrights
9.1 Without limitation, Hallufix reserves all ownership rights, industrial property rights and copyrighted rights to use in all illustrations, designs, technical specifications and other documents (hereinafter, “Documents”). The Documents may be made accessible to third parties only after the previous written consent of Hallufix.

9.2 If, based on a right to which it is entitled through a violation of an intellectual property right by contractually used goods that are delivered by Hallufix, a third party asserts claims against the purchaser, Hallufix shall, at its choice and at its expense, either acquire a right to use for the relevant goods, change the goods in such a way that there is no longer a violation of the intellectual property right or exchange the goods. To the extent that this is not possible or reasonable for Hallufix, the purchaser is entitled to statutory withdrawal or reduction rights. Damaged claims exist only in accordance with the conditions of Number 8. All claims of the purchaser are time-barred in the period specified in Number 7.7.

9.3 The obligations of Hallufix under Number 9.2 are applicable only to the extent that the purchaser immediately informs Hallufix in writing of any claim that is asserted by a third party, it does not itself admit the violation and Hallufix reserves the right to engage in all preventive measures and settlement negotiations. If the purchaser discontinues the use of the goods for reasons related to damage reduction or other important reasons, then it must point out to the third party that no acknowledgement of a violation of an intellectual property right is connected with this.

9.4 Any claim of the purchaser is barred to the extent that the purchaser itself was responsible for the intellectual property right violation, it was caused by the use of the goods that was not foreseeable by Hallufix, or it was caused by the fact that the goods were changed by the purchaser or were used together with products that were not supplied by Hallufix.

10. Applicable Law, Place of Performance, Area of Jurisdiction, Savings Clause
10.1 Any amendment or supplement to these AGBs requires written form. This also applies to any amendment to this written form clause.

10.2 For all legal relationships between Hallufix and the purchaser, the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany are exclusively applicable, to the exclusion of the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).

10.3 The exclusive area of jurisdiction for all disputes arising under the commercial relationship is the registered place of business of Hallufix.

10.4 If an individual provision of these General Terms and Conditions of Business or parts hereof should be or become totally or partially ineffective, the effectiveness of the General Terms and Conditions of Business is affected by this in all other respects. In place of the ineffective provision, the parties shall agree to an effective provision that comes as close as possible to the ineffective provision in actual, legal and economic respects. This is likewise to be undertaken if the General Terms and Conditions of Business possess a gap.
