3. The right of the creditor for damage compensation is not affected by the payment of a contractual fine.
8. Termination of the Contractual Relation
1. The contractual parties can terminate the contract by agreement or by withdrawal. An agreement for cancelling rights and obligations must be in writing, otherwise it is void.
2. The ordering party or the manufacturer has the right to withdraw from the contract in the event of a significant breach of the contractual obligations confirmed in this contract.
3. The withdrawal must be in writing with it being effective from its delivery to the other contractual party. In the event of doubt, it is assumed that the withdrawal was delivered by the lapse of the fifteen-day mail storage period.
4. In addition to the situations already anticipated in point 5 of the Other Conditions, the contractual parties consider the breaching of these contractual commitments to be a significant breach of the contract:
a) The ordering party's delay in handing over data for producing the work or materials for producing the work, which it committed to hand over to the manufacturer,
b) The manufacturer's delay of more than 30 calendar days with the final or, pursuant to this contract, adjusted deadline for completing the work,
c) The ordering party's delay for a period of longer than 30 days with paying a deposit, if it was negotiated.
5. In the event of the withdrawal from the contract, the contractual parties will carry out inventory and invoice the labour done on the work so far.
9. Other Conditions
1. If the manufacturer (supplier) ascertains, after the establishment of the contract, that the prior fulfilment was not paid for on time by the ordering party, it is entitled to postpone the negotiated fulfilment deadline in a corresponding manner according to its technological and production capabilities, without this approach leading to any breach in the contract, or it can withdraw from the contract or condition the deadline for fulfilling the negotiated obligation by paying all overdue and hitherto unpaid payables on behalf of the ordering party.
2. The resolution of all disputes that arise from the closed contract is negotiated in accordance with the Czech legal code and before the general court of the Czech Republic.
3. If a contractor delays the assignment of the parameters that are necessary for the fulfilment of the obligation, SV metal spol. s r.o. reserves the right to fulfil the obligation in a period extended by the period of time of the delay, unless agreed-upon otherwise. If the delay in the assignment is longer than 15 days, SV metal spol. s r.o. reserves the right to withdraw from the contract and to charge the necessarily expended costs up until the withdrawal from the contract.
4. In the event of the impact of a vis majore on the possibility of fulfilling the contract, the participants will not impose fines on each other.
5. The ordering party is entitled to carry out an inspection of the quality of the work and the materials used during the course of the execution of the work. During the inspection the manufacturer is obliged to submit the following to the ordering party: the results of all of the tests carried out until that time, evidence on the quality of the materials used, certificates and attestations. If the ordering party discovers that the manufacturer is executing the work contrary to the contractual obligations, the ordering party has the right to ask the manufacturer to remove the determined defects and to execute the work in accordance with the contract.
6. The manufacturer is entitled, during the execution of the work, to warn the ordering party of the unsuitability of its instructions or the documentation provided or materials submitted by the ordering party for the execution of the work. This notification must be in writing. In such a case, the ordering party is obliged to respond to this notification in writing without unnecessary delay. If the unsuitable instructions or defects in the production documentation or unsuitable material will mean it is impossible to execute the work properly and on time, the ordering party is obliged to take every step so that the execution of the work can be continued properly. During the period of removing the faulty state as a result of the manufacturer's warning to the ordering party until the ordering party has submitted a written opinion, the manufacturer is not in delay. If the ordering party, in its written notification, insists that the work be completed in the sense of the original instructions or documentation or from the material it provided or in the originally negotiated time, the manufacturer does not bear any responsibility for the impossibility of finishing the work or for the defects of the work after its completion. In the event that the ordering party's insistence on the original instructions results in the prolongation of the production times and the ordering party insists on the original completion deadline, the manufacturer has the right to withdraw from the contract and is entitled to invoice the damages that it has thereby incurred to the ordering party. If, in such a case, the manufacturer discovers that the work cannot be completed, it is entitled to interrupt the work and in such a case it is not in delay with the completion of the work. If the interruption of the work lasts longer than three months, the manufacturer is entitled to withdraw from the contract due to the significant breach of the contractual obligations on the part of the ordering party and it is entitled to invoice the damages that it has thereby incurred to the ordering party.
7. If other technical parameters are not agreed upon, the qualitative arrangements of the manufacturer's company standards will be adhered to. The ordering party declares that it has been informed of the aforementioned standards and has taken note of them.
8. The technical parameters that have not been agreed upon cannot be a subject of a complaint at a later date. In the event of a dispute on the measured values of some of the parameters where the manufacturer's output control shows different values than the ordering party's receiving inspection, the decisive data is determined by a subject on whom both sides agree.
10. Concluding Provisions
