§ 6 Reservation of title

(1) We reserve title to the product which is supplied until all of the debts arising from the purchase contract have been paid in full.

(2) Until title to the product you have purchased is transferred to you, you are obliged to treat the product with care and you must notify us immediately in writing if the article which is supplied is seized or is subjected to other interventions by third parties. In the event that the third party is not in a position to refund us the judicial and extra-judicial costs of a lawsuit pursuant to § 771 of the German Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO), you shall be liable for the loss we incur.

(3) If you handle and process or reconfigure the product you purchase, this shall always be in our name and on our behalf. In this case, your expectant right to the reconfigured product you have purchased shall continue to exist. In the event that the purchased product is processed with other articles which do not belong to us, we shall acquire joint title to the new product in the ratio of the objective value of our purchased product to the other articles which are handled at the time of processing. The same shall apply if products are mixed together. If products are mixed together in such a way that your product is to be regarded as the principal product, it shall be deemed to be agreed that you shall transfer to us a proportion of joint title and shall safeguard the resulting sole title or joint title for us. 


§ 7 Payment, terms of delivery, default on payment

If you pay by credit card or DIRECTebanking, the amount shall be debited after you have ordered the goods.

If you pay in advance, the shipment of the product starts after successful receipt of the order on our account. We currently only offer the option to pay on account to corporate customers, public organisations and authorities within the Federal Republic of Germany. Unfortunately, goods cannot be supplied to private customers on account. If you pay for your goods on account, you undertake to settle the invoiced amount as soon as you receive the invoice. If you default on payment, we reserve the right to charge costs for issuing demands for payment.


§ 8 Set-off, right of retention

You shall only enjoy a right of set-off if your counterclaims are final and absolute or uncontested. You shall only be empowered to exercise a right of retention to the extent that your counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.


§ 9 Guarantee and notification of defects

(1) You may initially choose whether the defect should be rectified or whether a replacement product should be supplied. However, we shall be entitled to refuse the method of subsequent performance you choose if this is only possible at unreasonable cost and the other method of subsequent performance does not entail considerable disadvantages for you. During subsequent performance, you may not reduce the purchase price or withdraw from the contract. Rectification of the defect shall be deemed to have failed if this is unsuccessful after a second attempt, provided that nothing different emerges in particular from the nature of the product or the defect or the other circumstances. If the subsequent performance has failed or if we have refused to provide subsequent performance overall, you can at your choice demand a lowering of the purchase price (reduction) or declare that you wish to withdraw from the contract.

(2) Your right to assert claims for compensation is not affected by this.

(3) Notwithstanding the above regulations and the limitations on liability below, we shall have unlimited liability for any loss of life, physical injury or damage to health based on a negligent or deliberate breach of duty by our legal representatives or our vicarious agents, and also for damage or losses which are covered by the liability under the German Product Liability Act, and also for all losses resulting from deliberate or grossly negligent breaches of contract and fraudulent intent on the part of our legal representatives or our vicarious agents. If we have issued a guarantee in respect of the quality and or durability of the goods or components thereof, we shall also be liable within the confines of this guarantee. However, we shall only be liable for damage and losses which result from the lack of quality or durability which is guaranteed, but do not occur to the goods directly, if the risk of such damage or loss is clearly covered by the quality and durability guarantee.

(4) We shall also be liable for damage or losses which are caused by simple negligence, to the extent that this negligence relates to the breach of such contractual obligations which must be complied with to achieve the purpose of the contract (cardinal obligations). However, we shall only be liable to the extent that the damage or losses are typically associated with the contract and can be foreseen. Otherwise, in the case of simple negligent breaches of secondary obligations which are not crucial to the contract, we shall not be liable. The limitations on liability contained in sentences 1 – 3 shall also apply if the liability involves the legal representatives, senior executives and other vicarious agents.

(5) No liability which goes beyond this is accepted, regardless of the legal nature of the claim which is asserted. To the extent that our liability is excluded or limited, this shall also apply to the personal liability of our employees, staff, representatives and vicarious agents.

(6) The guarantee shall run for a period of 2 years, starting from the date when risk is transferred. This period shall also apply to claims for compensation for consequential damage or losses resulting from defects, provided that no claims arising from inadmissible action are asserted.

 

§ 10 Agreement on costs

If you make use of your right of withdrawal, you must bear the normal costs of returning the goods if the goods which were supplied correspond with the goods ordered and if the price of the item to be returned does not exceed the sum of EUR 40.00 or, in the case of a more expensive item, if you have not yet paid the price of the goods or a contractually agreed part payment at the time you withdraw from the contract. In other cases the return of the goods is free of charge for you.

 

§ 11 Miscellaneous

(1) This contract and all of the legal relationships between the parties shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).

(2. If the purchaser is a trader or a legal entity under public law or a special fund under public law, the place of performance and the exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes arising from this contract shall be our registered place of business, provided that nothing else arises from the order confirmation.

(3) In the event that individual provisions in this contract should be or become ineffective or contain a loophole, this shall not affect the remaining provisions.

Specific provisions for the purchase of software

§ 1 Area of application

These provisions supplement the General Terms and Conditions of Business in so far as

  • software forms part of the item(s) purchased or
  • Making the software available to others forms part of the purchase agreement

§ 2 Rights of use

The use and exploitation of the program is only permitted to the extent described below in so far as no particular conditions of use apply according to the information provided by the program manufacturer.

United Navigation grants the user the non-exclusive (simple) right of use of the software and data for the use intended and with the volume of use defined below; the right of use is unrestricted in time and place but restricted in accordance with the following provisions. The rights of use include the installation and use of the software in accordance with the documentation and these provisions.

Use is every long-lasting or temporary, complete or partial replication of the program by loading, saving, running or displaying for the purpose of the execution of the program and data processing by the computer.

The purchaser may only install the program on a computer of his/her choice and only use the output internally.

The seller reserves all additional rights to the use or exploitation of the program package. Neither the purchaser nor succeeding users are entitled to use the program or amended or processed versions of the program at the same time on more than one computer or to distribute copies of the program package in its original version or in an mended or processed version even if they restrict such copies to material parts of the amended versions. The purchaser’s rights of exploitation to his/her own programs which are developed or operated from the use of the program package for the purpose intended and to all outputs obtained by the use of the program package remain unaffected.

United Navigation may revoke the right of use for good cause. Good cause is particularly constituted by the failure of the purchaser to comply with the restrictions on use arising from the provisions of Section B and by his/her failure to desist from such behaviour immediately even after being required in writing to cease and desist and after being threatened with revocation of the rights of use.

If the rights of use should be revoked, the purchaser must surrender the original data-carrier and any copies to United Navigation and delete any saved software and data. The purchaser must warrant to United Navigation in writing that he/she has surrendered and deleted everything.

§ 3 Copyright and protective rights

The program and the manual are protected by copyright law.

The user recognises the copyright of United Navigation and the manufacturer and therefore the exclusive rights of use and exploitation of other software. The exclusive rights of use and exploitation also apply to enhancements and amendments of the software which United Navigation or the manufacturer has created for the user in accordance with an order.

In particular, every instance of copying all or part of the software which is not expressly permitted, every instance of the unauthorised distribution of the software and the development of similar software or parts of software or the use of the software which is the subject of the contract as a template is prohibited contractually and by law.

The user recognises the brand, trademark, name and patent rights of United Navigation and the manufacturer as they apply to the software and the associated documentation. The user is prohibited from removing and altering references to copyright and existing protective rights and from making such references unrecognisable in any other way.

§ 4 Transfer of the software

The user may sell or give the software including the User Manual and miscellaneous accompanying material to third parties in perpetuity provided that the third party obtaining the items states that he/she is in agreement that the existing contractual conditions continue in force and apply to him/her.

The purchaser may only transfer the program package to a third party in its original condition and in full along with a copy of these Conditions of Use. Copies or copies of parts etc may not be passed to third parties.

The right of the purchaser to the use of the program package lapses when the latter is transferred to a third party; the rights of use, as defined in these Conditions, transfer to the third party. In the event of such a transfer, the purchaser must delete or otherwise destroy all copies, part copies and amended or processed versions as well as copies or part copies that have been made; this also applies to back-up copies.

The software and the data may not be made accessible, rented, leased, distributed or publicly disseminated in the context of commercial or non-commercial activity and particularly may not be made accessible via the Internet unless a written agreement on this matter is in existence  .

The user may make the software including the User Manual and other accompanying material available for use on a temporary basis only in so far as this is not by way of renting for commercial purposes or leasing and the third party states that he/she agrees that these contractual conditions continue in force and apply to him/herself. The user making the software etc available must, for the time the software etc is made available, hand over all program copies including any back-ups which might exist or destroy the copies which are not handed over. The user making the software available to the third party is entitled to no right to his/her own use of the program for the period in which he/she makes the software etc available to others. At the end of the period in which the software etc was made available, the third party must return to the user all the copies that were made available to him/her.
Or: the above provisions also apply to software etc made available to third parties for a limited period of time. (Then destroy copies)

The user may not make the software available to third parties if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that the third party will infringe the contractual conditions, particularly by making illicit copies.

If the software was acquired by the purchaser as part of an overall package, making the software available to third parties is only permitted along with the hardware. Making the software available in any other form is expressly forbidden.

§ 5 Rights of reproduction and protection against access

The user may reproduce the software in so far as the reproduction in question is necessary for the use of the software. Necessary reproduction includes the installation of the program from the original data-carrier onto the mass storage device of the hardware used and loading the program into the random access memory.

The user may also make a copy for back-up purposes. However, only a single back-up copy may be made and retained. This back-up copy must be marked as such.

In so far as the program package has built-in copy protection and if the program package which was supplied should be damaged, the purchaser has a right to a new copy of the same part on the return of the machine-readable carrier supplied as part of the program package.

If the periodic back-up of the entire data stock including the computer programs used should be essential for reasons of data security or to ensure the rapid reactivation of the computer system after a complete system crash, the user may make as many back-up copies as are absolutely necessary. The data-carriers in question must be marked accordingly. The back-up copies may only be used for purely archive purposes.

The user may not make other reproductions including the output of the program code to a printer and the reproduction of the User Manual. If additional User Manuals are needed for staff, they can be obtained from United Navigation.

§ 6 Multiple uses and use in a network

The user may use the software on any hardware that is available to him/her. However, if the user changes hardware, he must delete the software from the hardware previously used. Contemporaneous storage, maintaining it on hand or using it on more than one item of hardware is not permitted.

The use of the software which has been made available within a network or another multi-station computer system is not permitted in so far as the possibility of contemporaneous multiple use of the software is afforded by the network or system. If the user wishes to use the software within a network or another multi-station computer system, he/she must prevent contemporaneous multiple use by access protection mechanisms or purchase additional rights of use. Use in a network or other multi-station computer system of this nature is only permitted after the purchase of additional rights of use.

§ 7 Third party software

The software contains third party software products which is integrated into or included in the software which is the subject of this contract. United Navigation procures for this software only those rights which are necessary for the general use of these programs as component parts of the software which is the subject of this contract and which rights United Navigation is entitled to grant to others. A right to modification or further processing is not included.

§ 8 Decompiling and amending the program

The back translation of the program code which has been made available into other code forms (decompiling) and other types of reverse engineering of the various stages of the creation of the software is only permitted in accordance with the stipulations of § 69 e of the German Copyright Act (Urhebergesetz).

Amendments to and processing of the program are only permitted if these are covered by the use of the program for the purpose intended.

Decompiling and amending the program are also permitted in so far as they serve to rectify serious errors, particularly such errors as cannot be worked around with organisational or other justifiable aids.

Company names, trade marks, copyright notices, other notices about reservations of rights, serial numbers or other features serving to identify the program contained in the program may not be amended or removed and must be transferred into the amended or processed versions of the program.

The removal of copy protection or similar protective routines without the knowledge or cooperation of United Navigation is not permitted.

For this you can use the model cancellation form, but this is not mandatory. The above-mentioned right of cancellation is open to you for a period of 14 days. The time period commences as soon as you or a third party (designated by you) receive the goods. You have observed the time period allowed if you send your withdrawal or return the goods in a timely manner, that is to say by the end of 14 days.
