shall entitle UST to overrun delivery schedules or to withdraw from the agreement. This cannot be construed

be made at the express wish of the purchaser.

4.4 Faults arising from excessive loading, careless handling and maintenance or failure to observe the

cutting sets etc.

Exclusive court of jurisdiction for all present and future claims arising from the business association with registered

jurisdiction applies if the customer has no general domestic court jurisdiction, if he has moved his domicile or
usual place of residence outside the country since conclusion of the contract or if his domicile or usual place of
residence at the time of the action being brought is unknown.
Attention is drawn to the fact that the purchaser‘s personal details gathered in the normal course of a business
