(3) Individual agreements remain unaffected by the aforementioned regulations. 


II. Delivery dates, partial deliveries

(1) In the event that the non-compliance with, or the delay of, an agreed delivery date is attributable to force majeure, labour disputes, fire, unforeseen hindrances or other circumstances for which the company Petra Pannen is not responsible, the delivery period shall be extended for the duration of these events. This applies correspondingly in the event that the company Petra Pannen is in delivery delay at the time one of these events occurs.

(2) As far as the supplier is responsible for the delay, non-compliance with a delivery date for any other reasons than those stated in Clause 1 shall only trigger a right of withdrawal for the customer.

(3) Within commercial business transactions, the company Petra Pannen is entitled to supply partial deliveries as long as the customer's interests are not unreasonably hampered hereby.
