General terms and conditions of Business

Valid from 31/5/2023

Jungmann Systemtechnik GmbH & Co. KG

Bahnhofstraße 48/50, 21614 Buxtehude

§ 1 General

1.1 All deliveries and any other (service) performance are exclusively subject to the following General Terms and Conditions of Business of Jungmann Systemtechnik GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as “JST”).

1.2 Any deviating terms and conditions of the customer that JST does not expressly acknowledge shall not be binding, even if JST does not expressly object to them.

1.3 These General Terms and Conditions of Business shall only apply to companies, legal entities under public law or a special fund under public law pursuant to § 310 I, sentence 1 of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch)..

4.1 Even if JST, in knowledge of the customer’s terms and conditions that deviate from or contradict these terms and conditions, performs services without reservation, this shall not constitute consent – these terms and conditions shall also apply in this case.

§ 2 Offers, scope of services and entering into contracts

2.1 Contractual offers made by JST are subject to change, unless a binding period is stated in the offer.

2.2 The scope of the contractually owed service shall be determined exclusively by JST’s order confirmation.

2.3 JST reserves the right to make changes to the design, the choice of materials, the specification or the type of construction even after sending an order confirmation, provided that such changes do not contradict either the order confirmation or the customer’s specifications and that they are in line with technical progress. Furthermore, the customer shall agree to any further proposed changes by JST, provided that such changes are reasonable for the customer.

2.4 Partial deliveries are permissible.

2.5 The documents on which the offer or the order confirmation is based, such as illustrations, drawings, dimensions and weights, are only to be understood as approximate values, unless they are expressly designated as binding.

§ 3 Prices and terms of payment

3.1 Prices are ex works, excluding packaging and other shipping and transport charges.

Packaging shall be charged at cost price and shall only be taken back if JST is obligated to do so by virtue of mandatory statutory provisions.

3.2 If more than 4 months elapse between entering into the contract and delivery without JST being responsible for a delay in delivery, Jungmann may reasonably increase the price taking into account any material, wage and other ancillary costs incurred that are to be borne by JST. If the price increases by more than 40%, the customer shall be entitled to terminate the contract, which has not yet been fulfilled at such point in time.

3.3 If JST takes into account the customer’s change requests, the customer shall be invoiced for the additional costs incurred as a result.

3.4 If the payment deadline is culpably exceeded, interest shall be charged at a rate of 6% above the discount base rate of the European Central Bank, subject to the assertion of further claims.

§ 4 Delivery period

The specification of a delivery date or execution periods shall be made at our best discretion and shall be extended appropriately if the customer delays the performance of or fails to perform any required or agreed cooperative actions on its part. The same shall apply in the event of measures within the scope of labor disputes, in particular strikes and lockouts, and in the event of unforeseen obstacles beyond JST’s control, for example delivery delays of a sub-supplier, traffic and operational disruptions, a shortage of materials or energy, etc. Changes to the delivered goods initiated by the customer shall also lead to a reasonable extension of the delivery or performance

§ 5 Transfer of risk

The risk shall pass to the customer as soon as JST makes the goods or the service available to the customer and notifies the customer thereof. A separate acceptance is not agreed.

§ 6 Retention of title

6.1 JST shall retain title to the delivered goods until payment has been made in full. The retention of title shall also apply until all claims, including future and conditional claims, arising from the business relationship between the customer and JST have been satisfied.

6.2 If the value of all items of collateral existing for JST exceeds the existing claims by more than 10% on a sustained basis, JST shall release items of collateral of its choice upon the customer’s request.

6.3 JST shall be entitled to assert the rights of retention of title without withdrawing from the contract.

§ 7 Claims for defects

7.1 If a purchase is a commercial transaction for both parties, the customer must inspect the goods immediately upon receipt, to the extent that this is feasible in the ordinary course of business, and, if a defect becomes apparent, must notify JST without undue delay. If the customer fails to give such notice, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved, unless the defect was not recognizable during the inspection. In all other respects, § 377 et seq. of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch) shall apply.

7.2 Any claim for defects shall be limited to supplementary performance. If the supplementary performance fails twice, the customer shall have the right to demand, at its discretion, a reduction of the fee or the cancellation of the contract.

7.3 Claims for defects shall be time-barred after 24 months from delivery or provision of the service. In the event of supplementary improvement, the period of limitations shall start to run again, but shall end no later than 36 months after the original delivery or provision of service.

§ 8 Liability

8.1 JST shall be liable for damages that have not occurred to the object of delivery or service itself – regardless of the legal grounds – only as follows:

a. in the event of an intentional act,
b. in the event of gross negligence on the part of its owners / governing bodies or executive employees,
c. in the event of culpable injury to life, body, health,
d. in the event of defects that it has fraudulently concealed,
e. within the framework of a guarantee commitment,
f. to the extent that liability exists under product liability law for personal injury or property damages to privately used objects.

8.2 In the event of a culpable breach of material contractual duties, JST shall also be liable in the event of gross negligence of non-executive employees and in the event of slight negligence; in the latter case, however, its liability shall be limited to the reasonably foreseeable damages typical for contracts, unless life, body or health have been injured. Material contractual duties are all duties,
the fulfillment of which is necessary for the proper performance of the services and on the fulfillment of which the customer regularly relies and may rely.

8.3 Further claims for damages are barred.

§ 9 Intellectual property, industrial property rights, software use

9.1 All industrial property rights shall remain the property of JST. JST shall grant the customer, also in relation to samples, cost estimates, drawings and similar information of a tangible or intangible nature, a non-exclusive, non-transferable right of use to any industrial property rights for an unlimited period of time, only to the extent that this is necessary for the use of the delivery items/services.

(2) The customer shall be granted a non-exclusive right to use the delivered software, including its documentation. It is surrendered for use on the delivery item intended for this purpose. Use of the software on more systems than those contractually agreed is prohibited. The customer may only reproduce, revise, translate or convert the software from the object code to the source code to the extent permitted by law (§ 69 a et seq. of the German Copyright Act (Urheberrechtsgesetz)).

The customer is obligated not to remove manufacturer’s details – in particular copyright notices – or to change them without JST’s prior express consent.

All other rights to the software and the documentation, including copies, shall remain with JST. The granting of sublicenses is not permitted.

§ 10 Miscellaneous

10.1 The inclusion and interpretation of these General Terms and Conditions of Business, along with the entering into and interpretation of legal transactions with the customer itself, shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. The application of the uniform law on the conclusion of international sales contracts for movable and immovable property, the uniform
law on the international sale of movable and immovable property of the U.N. Sales Convention is barred.

The exclusive area of jurisdiction shall be the court competent for the registered office of JST, whereby JST reserves the right to bring suit against the customer at its general area of jurisdiction.

10.2 Offsetting and retention shall be barred unless the offsetting claim or the claim on account of which the right of retention is asserted is undisputed or has been finally determined by a court of law. An assignment of a claim shall only be permitted with the written consent of JST.

10.3 The invalidity of individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions of Business or its components shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The contracting parties shall be obligated, within the scope of what is reasonable and in good faith, to replace an invalid provision with a valid provision that is equivalent to its economic result, provided that this does not result in a significant change to the content of the contract; the same shall apply if a matter requiring a provision is not expressly governed.

10.4 The place of performance for all obligations arising directly or indirectly from this contractual relationship, including the duty to pay, shall be the registered office of JST.

1. Object of the Agreement

a) Important: This Software Licensing Agreement encompasses a legally-binding document between the Licensee (either as a natural or a juridical person) and Jungmann Systemtechnik GmbH & Co. KG (hereafter, “JST”), thus the Licensor. The Licensee must carefully read this Agreement before the software is installed and used. Through this Agreement, the usage right is transferred to the software in the following scope; the license granted shall not be considered to be a sale.

b) Moreover, this Licensing Agreement contains warranty information and liability exclusions. By installing, copying or using the software, the Licensee hereby unconditionally acknowledges these Contractual Terms and Conditions. Otherwise, the utilisation thereof – thus any usage and installation there – shall be forbidden.

c) This Licensing Agreement affects exclusively software and components which are provided by JST regardless of whether other software programmes have been mentioned or described in this document.

This software and its components serve the purpose of JST providing the Licensee with the contractually-agreed services and may be used exclusively for this purpose.

d) Regardless of the number of media which are provided to the Licensee, he may use only the medium which is suitable for the server or the computer on which the software is supposed to be installed.

e) The Licensee shall grant JST – at any time subject to the provision of reasonable advance notice – the right to verify the fulfilment of all terms and conditions of this Licensing Agreement.

2. Definitions

The “Software” refers to the software programme developed by JST and/or provided by JST and its updates/upgrades as well as all related documents, media, printed materials and online and/or electronic documentation.

3. Reproduction Rights and Licensing Restrictions

a) JST shall grant the Licensee a restricted, non-exclusive license.

b) The Software may be used exclusively for the contractually-agreed purpose. The Licensee shall ensure that no third-party rights, e.g. of its equipment suppliers, are restricted by the JST Software and shall indemnify JST in this regard from any third-party claims.

c) The Licensee shall be obliged to destroy the Software if he is requested to do so by JST because he has not fulfilled the provisions of this Licensing Agreement. However, all other rights of both Parties and all other provisions of this Licensing Agreement shall, as before, also be valid even after the Licensing Agreement ends.

d) The Software may be reproduced so often and installed on the Licensee’s computers as has been prescribed in the contractual documents. Installation in this sense refers to any action which is suitable for using the Software contractually. The Software’s user does not have to be mentioned by name. It may encompass various persons. The Licensee shall be responsible in this regard. Any sublicensing to third parties shall be excluded.

e) However, at no time may the number of simultaneous users, who use the Software under this license, be more than one or the number for which the Licensee has acquired licenses from JST for the simultaneous usage of this Software.

4. Temporary Transfer of Usage Rights

a) The right to usage of the Software, which has been granted under this license, may be temporarily transferred in accordance with the following paragraph, but nonetheless not the license itself.

b) If the Licensee temporarily transfers his right to usage the Software to third parties (e.g. to a service provider who is working contractually for the Licensee), then the Licensee shall assume the responsibility for the license-compliant usage of the Software by the third party. The third party, through the usage of the Software, shall be automatically subject to all terms and conditions of this Licensing Agreement. A free-of-charge transfer of the usage right to third parties shall then be permitted exclusively if this third party renders a contractual service for the Licensee which is in a direct correlation to the usage of this Software and the contractual usage of the relevant JST product.

c) The Licensee shall be forbidden from leasing out the Software, providing it upon a free-of-charge basis or awarding a sub-license for it.

5. Permanent Transfer of All Rights

a) The permanent transfer of all rights which are derived from this Licensing Agreement shall be possible only within the parameters of a sale or a transfer of the JST product including the relevant Software. In this regard, it shall be required that the original Licensee retains no copies of the Software and the recipient accepts the provisions of this Licensing Agreement.

b) Upon any type of transfer of possession of the product which includes the Software, the license of the transferring party shall automatically be extinguished and shall be transferred to the new owner. The new owner of the Software shall hereby accept, through its usage in any form, all rights and obligations of this Licensing Agreement.

c) If the Software encompasses an update/upgrade, the Licensee must also surrender all prior versions of the Software to which the update/upgrade is applicable. Test versions or versions of the Software which are not made available for resale may neither be sold nor transferred.

6. Ban on Reverse Engineering

The Licensee shall not be entitled to reverse engineer the Software product or portions thereof, alter, combine, adjust, translate, decompile or disassemble or otherwise place them in a format which is readable to humans.

7. Updates/Upgrades

If this copy of the Software encompasses an update/upgrade of a previous version, this shall be provided upon the basis of a license exchange. Through the installation and usage of such a copy of the Software, the Licensee hereby declares his agreement that the prior End User Licensing Agreement shall automatically be replaced by this one and hereby waives its defence to the usage of the previous version of the Software.

8. Release Candidates/Preliminary Versions

a) If the Software received by the Licensee should encompass a beta, demonstration, testing or evaluation software (collectively referred to as “Test Software”), then JST shall provide no warranty whatsoever. The Licensee hereby agrees that any usage of this Test Software shall be done at his own risk and he alone must be responsible for any potentially-occurring damages, e.g. data losses, loss of wealth, lost profits, business disruptions as well as any other capital losses or personal injuries. Any liability upon JST’s part for the Test Software and for any damages arising from or in conjunction with the usage of the Test Software shall be comprehensively excluded unless JST has caused damages based upon intentional wrongdoing or gross negligence, has culpably caused loss of life, physical injury or damage to health, has maliciously concealed a defect or has provided a warranty.

b) The Licensee may derive no rights whatsoever from the license through the usage of the Test Software; in particular not demand a continued development of the Software, a reimbursement of the expenditures which he incurs for the test, the evaluation or any other usage of the Software.

9. Intellectual Property Rights

This license shall grant the Licensee a restricted right to use the Software. JST reserves all ownership rights – including all rights to the intellectual property, to the Software – both as an independent work product as well as also as a work product which serves as the basis for the applications which the Licensee develops as well as all copies thereof. All rights not expressly granted in this Licensing Agreement – including all national and international copyrights – shall be retained by JST. The Licensee shall be obliged to not remove or alter manufacturer’s data – particularly copyright labelling – without JST’s prior express approval to do so. All other rights to the Software and the documentation – including the copies – shall be retained by JST.

10. Confidentiality Obligation

a) The Licensee shall be obliged to maintain secrecy regarding all know-how which he obtains from any type of usage of the Software and not to pass it on to unauthorised third parties.

b) Each functional description of the Software – particularly also its source codes, the know-how, how the structure of the modules of the Software can be recognised or enabled – shall be impermissible.

c) The aforementioned obligations shall also remain valid even after the Agreement ends.

11. Obligations to Examine and Report Defects

a) The Licensee shall examine the Software that has been supplied – including the documentation – promptly, particularly with regards to the completeness of the data carriers and manuals as well as the functionality of the fundamental programme functions. Any defects, which are hereby identifiable (obvious defects), must be immediately reported to JST against documentation. The Licensee must also endeavour to provide a notification of defects which contains a highly-detailed description of the defects insofar as this is possible.

b) Any defects which are not identifiable during the aforementioned proper examination must be promptly reported by merchants upon their discovery in accordance with § 377 German Commercial Code subject to the fulfilment of the aforementioned requirements for the notifications of defects.

12. Limited Warranty

a) The Software from JST shall be considered to be devoid of material defects if it displays the agreed quality features upon the transfer of risk; this shall also be valid if minor defects are discovered. JST shall not guarantee that the Software is devoid of defects or functions in a disruption-free manner. Moreover, JST does not warranty collision-free operation with other hardware or software. JST has checked the Software for the customary malware, but nonetheless can guarantee no lack of viruses for viruses which cannot be discovered by customary virus scanners. Insofar as the usage of the Software enables access to the Licensee’s IT infrastructures, exclusively the Licensee shall be responsible for the fulfilment of all security aspects – particularly access security.

b) Incorrect usage instructions/mounting instructions/installation instructions shall trigger no claims for material defects. Any restriction of the functionality of the Software, which results from hardware defects, environmental conditions, incorrect operation, and the like shall constitute no defect. Any warranty for the correctness of the advertising slogans from sub-suppliers/preliminary material suppliers shall not be provided by JST. JST shall provide no warranty that the Software will fulfil all of the Licensee’s requirements.

c)The Software has not been conceived, intended or licensed for usage in hazardous environments which require fail-safe control mechanisms. This shall be valid including and without exception – particularly in the following areas: The design, construction, maintenance or operation of nuclear plants, air traffic or flight communication systems, air traffic control systems as well as life support or weapon systems as well as in the segments in which a disruption or a flawed function could result in deaths, personal injury or grave damage to objects or the environment. The Software may possibly include support for programmes which have been written in .NET.

The .NET technology has not been developed or manufactured for usage or resale as an online control software in a dangerous environment in which disruption-free operation is required. JST hereby refuses to provide any express or tacit warranty for the suitability of this Software or portions of this Software for the aforementioned or similar purposes.

d) The aforementioned Points (a) – (c) shall likewise be valid for the usage of updates/upgrades of the Software.

e) Any justified claims for material defects shall be satisfied through subsequent performance. As JST so chooses, the subsequent performance shall be rendered either through a rectification of the defects or the supplying of a flawless Software. The services rendered shall be restricted to services to be rendered on the Licensee’s premises whereby JST shall be entitled to demand that the product be sent to JST’s premises. If the attempts at subsequent performance are unsuccessful twice, then the Licensee may withdraw from the Agreement or reduce the licensing price. Any further claims shall be excluded.

f) Subject to any deviating special agreements, any claims for defects shall become statute-barred 24 months after the Software has been supplied. For any repaired Software, the statute of limitations period shall begin to run anew, but nonetheless end by no later than 36 months after the original statute of limitations period begins to run.

13. Liability

JST’s liability from or in conjunction with this Agreement for any consequential damages – particularly any production disruptions incurred by the customer or any lost profits – shall be excluded and otherwise restricted per year to the annual net fee. The aforementioned liability restrictions shall, as a whole, then not be valid insofar as JST has committed intentional wrongdoing or gross negligence, culpably caused loss of life, physical injury or damage to health, has maliciously concealed a defect or provided a warranty.

14. Final Provisions

a) If one or more provisions of this Licensing Agreement should be discovered to be invalid, then the validity of the provisions as a whole shall not be affected. The invalid provision shall be replaced by a new valid provision which, insofar as this is possible, fulfils the same legal and commercial purpose.

b) This Licensing Agreement contains all understandings concluded between JST and the Licensee with regards to the contractual object and shall exclude all prior or simultaneous ancillary understandings concluded between the Parties, representatives of the Parties or their employees. The Licensee is in agreement that any change in or supplementation of these provisions in written or oral form, which are provided to him with regards to the licensed Software, shall be considered to be invalid.

c) Any brand names, trade names, product names and logos of JST and third parties contained in this Software may possibly be brand names or registered trademarks of the respective rights holders. The manipulation of brand names, trademarks, product names, logos and all other symbols or names that are protected under trademark or copyright law in the Software shall be forbidden. This Licensing Agreement shall not entitle the Licensee to use the aforementioned objects.

15. Legal Venue

The exclusive legal venue for all disputes arising from the licensing relationship shall be Buxtehude. German law shall be valid.

16. Protective Clause

The provisions of this Agreement shall be valid. Any business terms and conditions of the user shall not become the contractual object.

17. Declaration of Intent

The Licensee confirms that he has read this Agreement and agrees to be bound to these conditions. Any other type of agreement, which was concluded in advance orally or in writing, shall thus be dissolved and replaced by this Agreement.
