These restrictions shall not apply where there has been a breach of a fundamental contractual obligation for which we are responsible, insofar as this jeopardizes the achievement of the purpose of the contract, in cases of statutory liability pursuant to the German Product Liability Act, where there is damage to life, to the body or to health and to the extent where we fraudulently conceal the defects in the goods or guaranteed their absence.
This shall not have any effect on the rules governing the onus of proof.
Unless otherwise agreed, contractual claims that the buyer raise against us due to or in connection with the delivery of the goods or services become statute-barred one year after delivery of the goods. This deadline also applies for such goods which have been delivered and deployed as per their normal method of use within a building and which have caused defects to the latter, unless this method of use had been agreed on in writing. This shall not affect our liability from willful and grossly negligent breaches of duties and the statute-of-limitations of statutory claims for recourse. In cases of subsequent performance, the statute of limitation begins to run again.
We reserve the right of ownership and copyright in and to cost estimates, drafts, drawings and other documents; it is only upon our agreement and consent that they may be made available to third parties.
