The party that is in receipt of confidential information will solely utilise this for that purpose for which this was furnished. Information will, in any event, be deemed to be confidential if this is indicated to be such by one of the parties.

3.2 Each of the parties will during the term of the agreement, as well as one year after the termination thereof, solely after the prior written consent of the other party, engage or otherwise, either directly or indirectly, allow to work for it, employees of the other party who have been involved in the performance of the agreement. When that occasion arises, Formpipe Lasernet shall not forbear to grant the respective consent if the client has offered fitting compensation therefor.

3.3 The client indemnifies Formpipe Lasernet against claims from persons whereof whom the personal details are registered or processed within the scope of a registration of personal data such maintained by the client or wherefore the client is by virtue of statutory requirements in other respects responsible, unless the client substantiates that the facts such which underlie the claim are solely imputable to Formpipe Lasernet.

 

4.0 Retention of title and rights, ownership acquired by specification and possessory lien

4.1 All goods delivered to the client remain the property of Formpipe Lasernet until all the amounts payable by the client for and pursuant to the agreement to be delivered or to be delivered items or the performed or to be performed work, as well as all other amounts that the client is payable on account of the remiss in the payment obligation, have been fully paid to Formpipe Lasernet. A client, who acts as a reseller, may sell and resell all items subject to the retention of title of Formpipe Lasernet in so far that this is wonted in the scope of the normal course of its business.

If the client (also) forms a new item from Formpipe Lasernet supplied items, the client only forms that item for Formpipe Lasernet and the client will retain that newly formed item for Formpipe Lasernet until the client has settled all the payable amounts such pursuant to the agreement; Formpipe Lasernet holds in that event all the rights as owner of that newly formed item until that moment in time of full settlement by the client.

4.2 In such an event, the rights are each time granted or transferred to the client subject to the condition that the client makes timely and full payment of the therefore agreed payments. If Formpipe Lasernet proceeds to the granting or transferring of the right before that the agreed payments have been paid, then Formpipe Lasernet can invoke this resolutive condition at that moment when the agreed payment term has expired.

4.3 Formpipe Lasernet can, within the scope of the agreement, retain received generated items, products, property laws, data, documents, data files and (interim) results of the service provision of Formpipe Lasernet, despite an existing obligation towards issuance, until the client has paid all the payable amounts to Formpipe Lasernet.

 

5.0 Risk

5.1 The risk of a loss, theft or damage of items, products, software or data which are an object of the agreement, passes to the client at that moment when it comes into the possession thereof and/or which have been brought to a third party such designated by the client. The client and/or the third party designated by the client have been brought into actual possession as soon as Formpipe Lasernet has declared that the client may proceed and make use of the items, products, software or data which form the object of the agreement.

 

6.0 Rights of intellectual or industrial property

6.1 All the rights of intellectual or industrial property over the, pursuant to the agreement, developed or made available software, websites, data files, equipment or other materials such as analyses, designing, documentation, rapports, offers, as well as the preparatory material thereof, exclusively rest with Formpipe Lasernet, its licensors or its suppliers. The client solely acquires the rights of use expressly granted by these conditions and the law. Any other or more extensive right of the client to reproduce software, websites, data files or other materials, is excluded. A clientvested right of use is nonexclusive and nontransferable to third parties.

6.2 If in divergence of sub clause 6.1 Formpipe Lasernet is willing to undertake to transfer an intellectual or industrial property right, then such an obligation can only be explicitly entered into in writing. If the parties expressly agree in writing that rights of intellectual or industrial property with respect to specifically for the client developed software, websites, data files, equipment or other materials, will transfer to the client, then this will leave the right of Formpipe Lasernet unaffected towards the development of those underlying elements, general principles, ideas, designs, documentation, works, programming languages and suchlike, without any limitation, for other purposes to apply and to operate same, either for itself or third parties. Nor shall a transfer of intellectual or industrial property rights affect the right of Formpipe Lasernet to, for itself or third parties, undertake developments such which are similar to that being implemented or to be implemented for the client.

6.3 The client is not permitted to remove, modify or change any designation or notice with respect to the confidential nature or that concerning copyrights, trademarks, trade names or other intellectual or industrial property rights in the software, websites, data files, equipment or materials.

6.4 Formpipe Lasernet is permitted to take technical measures to protect the software or, having regard to the agreed restrictions in the duration of the right, make use of the software. The client is not permitted to remove or evade such a technical measure. If security measures result in that the client is unable to make a reserve copy of software, then Formpipe Lasernet will make a reserve copy available on request.

6.5 Unless where Formpipe Lasernet makes a reserve copy of the software available to the client, the client may make one reserve copy of the software, which copy may solely be used as protection against an involuntary loss of possession or damage. The installation of the reserve copy effects only after an involuntary loss of possession or damage. A reserve copy is required to be provided with and have those selfsame labels and designations and notices of copyright such which are present on the original copy (see sub clause 6.3).

6.6 Subject to the other conditions of these General Terms and Conditions, the client is entitled to improve and correct errors in the software provided to it if this should be necessary for the intended use of the software. Where in these General Terms and Conditions there is referred to ‘errors’, then there is with this implied a substantial failure to meet the Formpipe Lasernet expressed in writing functional or technical specifications and, with respect to custom software and websites, the between the parties expressly agreed in writing functional or technical specifications. There is only a question of an error if the client can demonstrate same and if this is reproducible. The client is held to promptly report errors to Formpipe Lasernet.

6.7 Formpipe Lasernet indemnifies the client against each legal claim from a third party such which is based on the allegation that websites, data files, equipment or other materials developed by Formpipe Lasernet itself infringes an in the Netherlands applicable intellectual or industrial property right, subject to the condition that the client promptly informs Formpipe Lasernet in writing as to the existence and the content of the legal claim and the settlement of the case, including the effecting of any settlement, leaving such entirely to Formpipe Lasernet. The client will provide the necessary powers of attorney thereto, and extend information and cooperation to Formpipe Lasernet to allow it, if necessary, to defend itself against these claims in name of the client. This obligation towards indemnification lapses if the alleged infringement is related to (i) with by client for use, adaptation, processing or incorporation to Formpipe Lasernet made available materials, or (ii) with changes that the client has applied or let be applied by third parties in the software, website, data files, equipment or other materials. If at law there is irrevocably established that the by Formpipe Lasernet developed software, websites, data files, equipment or other materials infringe any by a third party owned intellectual or industrial property right, or if in the opinion of Formpipe Lasernet there is a good probability that such an infringement presents itself, then Formpipe Lasernet will where possible ensure that the client can continue to undisturbed use that provided or functional similar other software, websites, data files, equipment or the respective other materials, for example through an adaptation of the infringing elements or through the acquiring of a right of use for the client. If Formpipe Lasernet in its exclusive opinion cannot, or not else than but for it (financial) unreasonable burdensome manner, ensure that the client can continue to use that provided in an undisturbed manner, then Formpipe Lasernet will take back that provided against a crediting of the acquisition costs with the deduction of a reasonable usage fee. Formpipe Lasernet will not opt for this until after consultation with the client. Each other further liability or obligation towards indemnification from Formpipe Lasernet on account of an infringement of the intellectual or industrial property rights of a third party, is wholly excluded, such including the liability and the obligation towards indemnification from Formpipe Lasernet for infringement caused by the use of the provided software, websites, data files, equipment and/or materials (i) in a not by Formpipe Lasernet modified form, (ii) in conjunction with not by Formpipe Lasernet provided or furnished items or software or (iii) in another manner for which the equipment, software, websites, data files and/or other materials have been developed or purposed.

6.8 The client warrants that no rights of third parties preclude the making available to Formpipe Lasernet of equipment, software, for websites destined material (visual material, text, music, domain names, logos etc.), data files, or other materials, including draft material, with the purpose to utilise, process, install or incorporate (e.g. in a website). The client shall indemnify Formpipe Lasernet against each action which is based on the allegation that such a making available, usage, processing, installing or incorporating infringes any whatsoever right of third parties.

 

7.0 Client cooperation; telecommunication

7.1 The client will each time for the proper execution of the agreement timely furnish Formpipe Lasernet with utile and necessary data or information and provide all cooperation, including the granting of access to its buildings and telecommunication networks. If the client, within the scope of the rendering of cooperation in the execution of the agreement, assigns its own personnel, then that personnel will have the requisite knowledge, experience, capacity and quality at its disposal.

7.2 The client bears the risk of the selection, the use and the application of the equipment, software, websites, data files and other products and materials in its organisation and that of the services to be provided by Formpipe Lasernet, and is also responsible for the control and security procedures and an adequate systems administration.

7.3 If the client makes software, websites, materials, data files or data on an information carrier available to Formpipe Lasernet, then this will meet the specifications such prescribed by Formpipe Lasernet.

7.4 If the client for the performance of the agreement does not or not timely make available the necessary information, equipment, software or personnel to Formpipe Lasernet, such in accordance with the agreement, or if the client in another manner does not meet its obligations, Formpipe Lasernet shall be entitled to effect a whole or part suspension of the execution of the agreement and shall be entitled to charge for the arisen costs on account of this accordant to its wonted rates, one thing and another without prejudicing the right of Formpipe Lasernet towards the exercise of any statutory law.

7.5 In the event that the personnel of Formpipe Lasernet carry out work onsite at the client, the client shall provide without cost those facilities reasonably required by that personnel, such as a working space with computer and telecommunication facilities. The working space and facilities shall meet all the applicable (statutory) requirements and regulations concerning working conditions. The client indemnifies Formpipe Lasernet against the claims from third parties, including employees of Formpipe Lasernet who, in relation to the performance of the agreement, suffer bodily injury which is as a result of an act or omission by the client or due to unsafe situations in its organisation. The client will timely notify the Formpipe Lasernet personnel to be deployed of its prevailing internal rules and safety regulations within its organisation.

7.6 If in the performance of the agreement use is made of telecommunication facilities, including the Internet, the client shall be responsible for the right choice and the timely and adequate availability thereof, with the exception of those facilities which fall under the direct use and management of Formpipe Lasernet. Formpipe Lasernet is at no time liable for the damage or costs due to transmission errors, disruptions or the nonavailability of these facilities, unless the client can demonstrate that this damage or costs are a result of an intentional act or gross negligence of Formpipe Lasernet or its managers. If in the performance of the agreement use is made of telecommunication facilities, Formpipe Lasernet shall be entitled to assign client access or identification codes. Formpipe Lasernet may change access or identification codes. The client will handle the access codes in a confidential manner and with due care and will only disclose this to authorised staff members. Formpipe Lasernet is at no time liable for damage or costs as a consequence of the misuse of access or identification codes.

 

8.0 Terms for the carrying out of work activities

8.1 All the agreed (delivery) periods stated by Formpipe Lasernet are, to the best of its knowledge, determined on the basis of the information known to Formpipe Lasernet on the concluding of the agreement. Formpipe Lasernet makes every just effort to, in so far as possible, observe the agreed (delivery) periods. The sole exceeding of a stated or agreed (delivery) period will not bring Formpipe Lasernet in default. In all events, therefore also if the parties have agreed an express and ultimate date in writing, Formpipe Lasernet will first be in default due to an exceeding of a date after that the client has given it a notice of default in writing. Formpipe Lasernet is not held to the either or not (delivery) deadlines such which have arisen due to circumstances out with its control after the concluding of the agreement, and which deadlines can no longer be met. Neither is Formpipe Lasernet held to an either or not delivery deadline if the parties have agreed towards a change of the content or extent of the agreement (contract extras, changes to specifications etc.). If there is a danger of the exceeding of any period, then Formpipe Lasernet and the client will enter into consultation at the earliest opportunity.

 

9.0 Termination of the agreement

9.1 Each of the parties shall only be entitled to dissolve the agreement if the other party, at all times and in all events, after a proper and as detailed as possible written notice of default which mentions a reasonable period for the remedying of failures, fails imputably in the fulfilment of the essential obligations under the agreement.

9.2 If an agreement does not terminate by way of its nature and content and has been entered into for an indefinite period of time, then this can be terminated by either of the parties after good consultation and with stating the reasons therefor in a written notice of termination. If no period of notice of termination has been expressly agreed between the parties, then a
reasonable period of time is required to be observed for the termination. Formpipe Lasernet will on account of a termination at no time be held to any whatsoever compensation.
9.3 In divergence of what the law has specified with regard to this such by means of regulatory law, the client can only terminate a contract for the provision of services in those events such provided by the terms in these General Terms and Conditions.

9.4 Each of the parties can terminate the agreement without a notice of termination with immediate effect, in whole or in part, and in writing, if the other party is either or not granted a provisional suspension of payments, if in respect of the other party insolvency is filed or, if the company of the other party is liquidated or ended other than for reconstruction or the merging of companies. Formpipe Lasernet is on account of this ending at no time held towards any whatsoever refund of already received monies or towards compensation. In the event of the insolvency of the client, the right of use of the software made available to the client ends.

9.5 If the client at that moment of the dissolution as referred to in sub clause 9.1 has already had work effected in the performance of the agreement, then that work and the therewith associated payment obligation will not form an object of undoing, unless the client has demonstrated that Formpipe Lasernet is in default with respect to that work. Amounts which have been invoiced by Formpipe Lasernet in relation to that, which it has, in the performance of the agreement, properly carried out or delivered, continue to be, with due observance of that specified in the preceding sentence, fully payable and will be immediately due and payable at that moment of dissolution.

 

10.0 Liability of Formpipe Lasernet; indemnification

10.1 The total liability of Formpipe Lasernet due to an imputable failure in compliance with the agreement, is limited towards the payment of a direct loss up to a maximum of the amount of the stipulated price for that agreement (excluding BTW [Dutch VAT]). If the Agreement is primarily a continuing performance contract with a term of more than one year, the price stipulated for the agreement is set to the total of the payments (excluding BTW) stipulated for one year. In no event shall the total payment for a direct loss amount to more than € 500,000 ((five hundred thousand euros). Under a direct loss there is solely implied:

  • a. The reasonable costs that the client would have to incur to allow the work of Formpipe Lasernet to conform to the agreement; this replacing loss is however not paid if the agreement is dissolved on demand of the client.
  • b. The reasonable costs that the client has incurred for the out of necessity maintaining operational of its old system or systems and the therewith related facilities in that Formpipe Lasernet has not delivered on a for it binding delivery deadline, less any savings due to the delayed delivery;
  • c. The reasonable costs, such incurred in determining the cause and the extent of the loss, in so far that the determination pertains to a direct loss within the meaning of these conditions;
  • d. The reasonable costs, such incurred in the prevention or limiting of a loss, in so far that the client demonstrates that these costs have led to a limiting of the direct loss within the meaning of these conditions.

10.2 The liability of Formpipe Lasernet for harm or death or bodily injury or, due to the material damage to goods, will at no time amount in total to more than € 1,250,000 (one million and two hundred and fifty thousand euros).

10.4 The limitations stated in the foregoing sub clauses of this clause 10 come to lapse if and in so far the damage or loss is due to an intentional act or negligence of Formpipe Lasernet or its
managers.

10.5 The liability of Formpipe Lasernet due to an imputable failure in the fulfilment of an agreement arises in all events only if the client, immediately and properly in writing, gives notice of default to Formpipe Lasernet, whereby a reasonable period for the remedying of the failure is set, and Formpipe Lasernet also after that period imputably continues to fail in the fulfilment of its obligations. The notice of default is required to contain an as far as possible complete and detailed description of the failure, so that Formpipe Lasernet is enabled to respond in an adequate manner.

10.6 The condition for an event giving rise to any right towards compensation is at all times that the client notifies the damage or loss in writing as soon as possible after the arising thereof to Formpipe Lasernet. Each claim for compensation against Formpipe Lasernet lapses through the mere expiry of 18 months after the inception of the claim.

10.7 The client indemnifies Formpipe Lasernet against all claims from third parties for product liability as a result of a defect in a product or system that has been delivered by the client to the third party and which also consisted of equipment, software, and other materials supplied by Formpipe Lasernet, except if and in so far the client demonstrates that the damage was caused by that equipment, software or other materials.

10.8 That stipulated in this clause also applies in favour of all (legal) persons whereof Formpipe Lasernet makes use of in the performance of the agreement.

 

11.0 Force majeure

11.1 None of the parties is held towards the fulfilment of any obligation if it should be impeded towards this on account of force majeure. Under force majeure there is also implied the force majeure of the suppliers of Formpipe Lasernet, the not properly fulfilling of obligations of suppliers such prescribed by the client to Formpipe Lasernet as well as the defectiveness of goods, materials and software of third parties whereof the use thereof is prescribed by the client to Formpipe Lasernet.

11.2 If a situation of force majeure has continued for longer than ninety days, the parties shall be entitled to terminate the agreement by means of a written dissolution. That which has already been performed under the agreement, shall in that event be settled proportionally, without the parties, in other respects, being payable an amount to each other.

11.3 Force majeure shall mean: any circumstance beyond the control of Formpipe Lasernet that is of such a nature, that a fulfilment of the Agreement cannot reasonably be demanded of Formpipe Lasernet. This shall also include: strike action, riot, war and other civil commotion, boycotts, blockades, natural disasters, epidemics, shortage of raw materials, an impediment and interruption of the transport facilities, extreme weather conditions, fire, machinery breakdown, disruptions in the company of Formpipe Lasernet, problems at suppliers and/or any government measures.

 

12.0 Applicable law and disputes

12.1 The agreements between Formpipe Lasernet and the client are governed by the laws of the Netherlands. The applicability of the Vienna Sales Convention 1980 (CISG) is excluded.

12.2 The court in that district in which Formpipe Lasernet has its office adjudicates legal actions and germane commitments that directly or indirectly arise from this agreement.

 

13.0 Security, privacy and retention periods

13.1 Formpipe Lasernet meets those obligations by virtue of the legislation concerning the processing of personal data that rest upon it as a processor thereof. Formpipe Lasernet shall ensure appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect (personal) data against loss or against any form of unlawful processing.

13.2 The client vouches that all statutory provisions concerning the processing of personal data, including those provisions such set out by, or pursuant to, the Wet Bescherming Persoonsgegevens [Netherlands Personal Data Protection Act], are strictly observed and that all the prescribed registrations have been effected and all the requisite permissions have been obtained for the processing of personal data. The client shall promptly furnish Formpipe Lasernet in writing all the requested information with respect to this.

13.3 The client indemnifies Formpipe Lasernet for all claims from third parties which may be lodged towards Formpipe Lasernet on account of a not attributable to Formpipe Lasernet breach of the Wet Bescherming Persoonsgegevens [Netherlands Personal Data Protection Act] and/or other legislation pertaining to the processing of personal data.

13.4 The client indemnifies Formpipe Lasernet against all claims from third parties, including government institutions, which may be instituted towards Formpipe Lasernet due to a violation of legislation with respect to the statutory retention periods.

These conditions shall not affect the conditions contained in these General Terms and Conditions related to specific services, such as computer service and the development of software and the maintenance thereof.

 

14.0 Implementation

14.1 Formpipe Lasernet shall, to the best of its knowledge, make all effort to effect the service provision with all due care, where appropriate with the client’s written arrangements and procedures. All the services of Formpipe Lasernet are effected on the basis of an obligation to use best endeavours, unless and in so far in the written agreement Formpipe Lasernet expressly assured a result
and the result in question is sufficiently determinable set out. Any arrangements concerning a service level are each time only expressly agreed in writing.

14.2 If there is agreed that the service provision shall take place in phases, Formpipe Lasernet is entitled to postpone the commencement of those services which form part of a phase until the client has approved in writing the results of the phase previous thereto.

14.3 Solely if this is expressly agreed in writing, shall Formpipe Lasernet be held to timely and responsibly observe directions from the client during the implementation of the service provision. Formpipe Lasernet is not obligated to observe directions that change or supplement the content or scope of the agreed service provision; if such directions are however observed, then the respective work shall be remunerated in accordance with clause 15.

14.4 If an agreement towards the provision of services is entered into with a view to an implementation by a specific person, Formpipe Lasernet shall at all times be entitled, after consultation
with the client, to replace this person by one or more other persons holding the same qualifications.

14.5 In the absence of an expressly agreed invoicing schedule, all those amounts pertaining to services provided by Formpipe Lasernet are payable in arrears once each calendar month.

 

15 Changes and additional work

15.1 If at the request or with the prior consent from the client Formpipe Lasernet has effectuated work or other performances that fall out with the content or scope of the agreed service provision, then this work or those performances shall be paid by the client in accordance with the usual rates of Formpipe Lasernet. There is also a question of additional work if a system analysis, a design or specifications is extended or changed. Formpipe Lasernet is at no time obligated to meet such a request and it can desire that a separate written agreement is concluded for this.

15.2 The client accepts that on account of work or performances as referred to in sub clause 15.1 the agreed or expected point in time of completion of the service provision, and the mutual responsibilities of the client and Formpipe Lasernet, can be influenced. The fact that during the performance of the agreement (the requirement for) additional work occurs, is for the client at no time a reason for the dissolution or the termination of the agreement.

15.3 In so far that a fixed price has been agreed for the provision of services, Formpipe Lasernet will, if so requested, inform the client in in advance and in writing as to the financial consequences of that extra work or performances.

 

16.0 Study programmes, courses and training courses

16.1 In so far that the provision of services of Formpipe Lasernet consists of the providing of study programmes, a course or training courses, Formpipe Lasernet can each time before the commencement thereof require payment of the payable amounts for this. The consequences of a cancellation of participation in study programmes, a course or training course is governed by the customary rules at Formpipe Lasernet.

16.2 If the number of applications thereto gives in the opinion of Formpipe Lasernet due cause, Formpipe Lasernet shall be entitled to combine the study programmes, course or training courses with one or more other study programmes, courses or training courses, or to let these take place at a later date or a later point in time.

 

17.0 Secondment

Formpipe Lasernet will give due and prioritised consideration to the request at its earliest opportunity. Formpipe Lasernet does not guarantee that replacement is always possible. If replacement is not or not possible forthwith, then the claims of the client towards the further fulfilment of the agreement as well as all those claims from the client due to a nonfulfilment of the agreement, are voided. The payment obligations of the client with respect to the effectuated work remain effective.

17.4 Formpipe Lasernet is held towards a timely and full payment of the, in relation to the agreement, payable income tax deducted at source and (advance) contributions for social insurance for the seconded employee. Formpipe Lasernet indemnifies the client against all legal claims from the tax authorities, respectively, social insurance agencies with respect to taxes and social insurance contributions such which are directly connected to the making available of the seconded employee by Formpipe Lasernet (the socalled recipients’ liability), subject to the client leaving the settling of the respective claims entirely to Formpipe Lasernet, and extends cooperation to it thereby and furnishes it with all the requisite information and, if so desired by Formpipe Lasernet, documents appointing a representative of one party to act on behalf of another party [ad litem].

The “Use and Maintenance of Software” chapter is also applicable to this software, except for in so far there is diverged from this in this chapter. The rights and obligations referred to in this chapter solely pertains to computer software in a readable form for a data processing machine and which is recorded on readable material for such a machine, as well as for the accompanying documentation. At those places in this chapter where there is referred to software, there is also websites implied.

18.0 Development of software

18.1 If no specifications or a design of the software to be developed have already been furnished to Formpipe Lasernet at the concluding of the agreement, the parties shall, in consultation, specify in writing as to what software will be developed and in which manner this will take place. Formpipe Lasernet shall carry out the development of software with due care on the basis of the information furnished by the client, whereof the client vouches for the correctness, completeness and consistency. If the parties have agreed the employ of a development method that is characterised that the designing and/or the developing of elements of the software is subject to a further, during the performance of the agreement, to be determined prioritisation, then this prioritisation shall at all times come into effect in consultation between the parties.

18.2 Formpipe Lasernet is entitled, but not obligated, to examine the correctness, completeness or consistency of the information, specifications or designs furnished to it and, by the determining of any deficiencies, to suspend the agreed work until the client has removed the respective deficiencies.

18.3 Without prejudice to the stipulation in clause 6, the client shall only be entitled to use the software in its own company or organisation. Solely if and in so far this has been expressly agreed in writing, can the source code of the software and the technical documentation drawn up by the development of the software be made available to the client, in which event the client will be entitled to make changes in this software. If Formpipe Lasernet is held at law to make the source code and/or the technical documentation available to the client, then Formpipe Lasernet can desire to receive a reasonable payment therefor.

18.4 If Formpipe Lasernet, either or not in the precontractual phase, makes for testing purposes or provides software, examples or models and no agreement is made with respect to the use of that software, examples or models, the client is not entitled to make use of that software, examples or models.

19.0 Delivery, installation and acceptance of custom work

19.1 Formpipe Lasernet shall deliver and install the custom work to be developed to the client in so far as possible in conformity with the specifications set out in writing, the aforementioned such only if an installation to be carried out by Formpipe Lasernet has been agreed in writing. In the absence of express agreements with respect to this, the client will itself install, set up, parameterize, tune the customised work and if necessary adapt the equipment and operating environments employed therewith. Unless otherwise expressly agreed, Formpipe Lasernet is not obligated to carry out a data conversion.

19.2 If an acceptance test has been agreed, then the test period shall be 15 working days after delivery or, if an installation to be carried out by Formpipe Lasernet has been agreed in writing, after the completion of the installation. The installation is completed as soon as Formpipe Lasernet has notified the client thereof, or when Formpipe Lasernet commences with the carrying out of the acceptance test. During the test period, the client is not permitted to make use of the software for productive or operational purposes. Formpipe Lasernet can at all times require, such also if this has not been expressly agreed, that the client carries out, with sufficiently qualified personnel, a reliable test of a sufficient scope and depth over the (interim) results from the development work and that the test results are reported in writing in an orderly and comprehensible manner to Formpipe Lasernet.

19.3 The software will be deemed to have been accepted between the parties:

  • a. When the client has confirmed the correct working in writing by the latest of the last day of the test period, or
  • b. When the client has not responded in writing after the agreed test period such within the scope of possibly observed defects, errors and deficiencies within the scope of the prior, within the utilised project method, defined requirements for the desired functionalities such as referred to in subclause 19.5 and subclause 2.6.
  • c. If the client, before that moment of explicit acceptance, makes any use of the software for productive or operational purposes, the software shall be deemed to have been fully accepted from that moment of commencement of that use.

19.4 If by the carrying out of the acceptance test it appears that the software contains errors that impede the progress of the acceptance test, the client shall inform Formpipe Lasernet in writing and in detail of this, in which event the test period will be interrupted until the software has such been modified that the impediment has been eliminated.

19.5 If by the carrying out of the agreed acceptance test it appears that the software contains errors within the meaning of sub clause 6.6, the client shall inform Formpipe Lasernet of those errors, by means of a written and detailed test report at the latest of the last day of the test period. Formpipe Lasernet shall to its best capacity make all effort to rectify the referred to errors within a reasonable period of time, whereby Formpipe Lasernet shall be entitled to apply temporary solutions, programme bypasses or problem avoiding restrictions in the software.

19.6 The acceptance of the software may not be withheld on those grounds other than those related to the expressly agreed specifications between the parties and, furthermore, not on account of the existence of minor errors, such being errors that do not reasonably impede the operational or productive putting into operation of the software, without prejudice to the obligation of Formpipe Lasernet to, where applicable, rectify these minor errors within the scope of the warranty scheme of clause 22. Moreover, acceptance may not be withheld with respect to those aspects of the software that can only be subjectively determined, such as the design of the user interfaces.

19.7 If the software is delivered and tested in phases and/or components, then the nonacceptance of a specific phase and/or component does not affect any acceptance of an earlier phase and/or another component.

19.8 The acceptance of the software in one of the manners as referred to in sub clause 19.3, has as consequence that Formpipe Lasernet is fully discharged from compliance with its obligations for that concerning the development and the making available of the software and if, in this instance, also the installation by Formpipe Lasernet has been agreed, from its obligations with respect to the installation of the software. The acceptance of the software does not prejudice the rights of the client on the basis of sub clause 22.6 concerning minor defects and clause 22 concerning warranty.

19.9 In the absence of an expressly agreed invoicing schedule, all the amounts pertaining to the developing of the software shall be payable on the delivery of the software or if, in this instance, an also by Formpipe Lasernet to be carried out installation has been agreed, on completion of the installation.

By any malfunction or breakdown of the referred to processing unit, the software may be used on another processing unit for the duration of that malfunction or breakdown. The right of use can pertain to several processing units in so far that this expressly apparent from the agreement.

20.3 The right of use is not transferable. The client is not permitted to sell, lease, sublicence or dispose of the software and carriers on which this is recorded, or to grant limited rights thereupon or, to in any whatever manner or for whatsoever purpose, make this available to a third party, either or not giving remote access to the software or to host the software with a third party, this also not if the respective third party only uses the software for the client. The client shall not make changes to the software other than within the scope of the rectifying of errors. The client shall not use the software within the scope of the processing of data for third parties (‘timesharing’).

Formpipe Lasernet does not warrant that the software will work without interruption, errors or other defects or that all errors and defects will be corrected. The rectification or reparation will be carried out at no cost, unless the software has been developed on instruction of the client other than for a fixed price, in which event Formpipe Lasernet shall, in accordance with its usual rates, charge for the rectification or reparation costs. Formpipe Lasernet can, such pursuant to its usual rates, charge for the costs or rectification and reparation if there is a question of user errors or an improper use by the client of other not attributable to Formpipe Lasernet causes or, if the errors by the carrying out of the agreed acceptance test could have been ascertained.
The recovery of mutilated or lost data is not covered the warranty.
The warranty obligation becomes void if the client, without a written consent from Formpipe Lasernet, applies changes in the software or allows same to be applied, which consent shall not be withheld on unreasonable grounds.
