event of material delay according to the above, the Buyer is entitled to
demand re-negotiation of the specific part of the contract concluded or

upon receipt for any defects.
6.2 EURO POULTRY shall only be held liable for original defects and shall

right to subsequently allege delay in the Buyer’s putting forward the
claim or any implied acknowledgement of any liability.
6.7 If the Buyer establishes that EURO POULTRY can be held liable for
any defects, EURO POULTRY shall in its sole discretion and as its
sole obligation replace the delivery, remedy the defect, or offer the
Buyer a proportional price reduction, whereupon the defect shall be

goods until payment for them and for all other goods agreed to
be sold to the company had been received in full. Where ownership of
any goods remains vested in EURO POULTRY, EURO POULTRY
shall be entitled to repossess any goods supplied at any time. EURO
POULTRY may for the purpose of recovering its goods enter upon any
premises where they are stored or where they are reasonably thought
to be stored and may repossess the same. It is the sole responsibility
of the Buyer to ensure that all goods received from EURO POULTRY
are fully insured against any eventually including, but not limited to,
fire, theft, flooding, etc. until such time ownership said goods has

they have been received by the Buyer, the Buyer will be liable to pay
to EURO POULTRY the full purchase price of the goods.

payment restrictions, ban on imports or exports, operational
failure or other shut-down of operations or a similar situation causing a

considered a breach of contract, or to deliver the goods when the obstacle
no longer exists.

or loss incurred by the Buyer or third party, including costs in

dispute be settled by arbitration arranged by Danish Arbitration in accordance
with the rules of arbitration procedure adopted by Danish
Arbitration and in force at the time when such proceedings are commenced.
