If the Vendee continues to sell or distribute the Product after the issue of a Cease Distribution Notice, UIG shall not be liable to exchange or refund the Buy Price of the defective Product, nor for any damages or losses suffered by the Vendee as a result of the continued distribution of such defective Product.

This § 4.8 shall not apply to claims made under the Product Liability Act.

§ 5 INDEMNITY
The Vendee shall indemnify and keep fully indemnified UIG from and against any and all actions, claims, proceedings, damages, liabilities, awards, costs (including, without limitation, the legal costs of the UIG for its attorneys) and losses whatsoever which the UIG may suffer or be required to pay directly or indirectly as a result of any breach or non-performance by the Vendee of any of the Vendee's undertakings, warranties or obligations under this Agreement.

§ 6 NO WAIVER
The failure of either party to exercise or enforce any right conferred upon it by this Agreement may not be deemed to be a waiver of any such right or operate so as to bar the exercise or enforcement thereof at any time or times thereafter.

§ 7 Duties and Taxes
All prices shown in this Agreement are exclusive VAT. Any duties and taxes which may be incurred with respect to the conclusion, performance, expiration or termination of this Agreement shall be borne by VENDEE, except the taxes on the income of UIG.

§ 8 ENTIRE AGREEMENT
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto in respect of the subject matter hereof and no terms, obligations, representations, promises or conditions, oral or written, express or implied, have been made or relied upon other than those contained herein. For the avoidance of doubt each party irrevocably waives any right it may have to seek a remedy for any misrepresentation which has not become a term of this Agreement (except for a fraudulent misrepresentation), and any breach of warranty or undertaking (other than those contained in this Agreement) whether express or implied, statutory or otherwise, unless such misrepresentation, warranty or undertaking was made fraudulently. The use of Standard Terms and Conditions, other than this General Business Terms, is expressly ruled out by both parties.

§ 9 Invalid Provisions
Should any of the provisions of this Agreement be or become invalid, illegal or unenforceable in whole or in part, the other provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired. The invalid provision shall, according to the intent and purpose of this Agreement, be deemed to be replaced by such valid provision, which in its economic effect comes as close as legally possible to that of the invalid provision. The same shall apply in case of any omission.

§ 10 Factoring
Invoices will be factored by Supplier. If the factoring credit limit of the distributor is fully used up distributor has to pay goods upfront until the factoring credit limit is reduced and available again by the agreed payment terms.

The factor shall be entitled to dispose of these accounts receivable freely and without our participation. Particularly the factor shall be entitled to collect the above mentioned receivables.

§ 11 Governing Law
The Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of Germany. The UN Sales Convention (CISG) shall be excluded. VENDEE irrevocably agrees with UIG for its exclusive benefit that the courts of Germany shall have jurisdiction to settle any dispute which may arise out of or in connection with this Agreement and that accordingly any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or in connection with this Agreement may be brought in such courts (which have competent jurisdiction for UIG). Nothing in this Clause shall limit the right of UIG to take Proceedings against VENDEE in any other court of competent jurisdiction, nor shall the taking of Proceedings in one or more jurisdictions preclude the taking of Proceedings in any other jurisdiction, whether concurrently or not (unless precluded by applicable law).
