If, for this reason, the Seller fails to deliver the goods to the Buyer within 60 days after the agreed delivery date, the Buyer is entitled to entirely withdraw from the partial Purchase Contract only if the goods have not been delivered or if the Seller has not informed the Buyer that it is due to arrive in the near future.

In the event that the Seller and the Buyer have mutually applicable claims against each other, they agree that, unless provided hereinafter otherwise, they are entitled to set off them against each other only by agreement. In such a case, the Seller shall issue a set-off agreement in EOS, and the Buyer, which enters the EOS through its customer identification code and password, shall accept the agreement by checking the option, thereby confirming the conclusion of the agreement to the Seller. The Seller is also entitled to offset unilaterally their claim prior to maturity against the Buyer's claim, even by e-mail, or only by issuing a draft agreement on offset of mutual claims in EOS, which the Buyer does not accept as mentioned above in five business days following the issue; the effects of the offset arise after vain expiration of this period.
