H.            Patent Infringement Claims

 

*

        Principal will pay the legal costs of such possible litigation and consequently Principal has the final say with respect to the response to such possible patent infringement claims.

 

*

5.                                       Failure of the Distributor to meet mutually agreed upon sales goals shall provide Principal with the option to terminate the Agreement with ninety (90) days’ notice. Sales goals for this Agreement are described in Appendix D, attached hereto and

 

13



 

made part hereof, and shall be established on an annual basis thereafter upon renewal, if any, of this Agreement.

11.                                In the event Distributor is unable to perform service to the satisfaction of     customers as reported to Principal, Principal reserves the right to cancel service responsibility of this Agreement.

K.            Failure to Enforce

Appendix B: Accessories, Service Spare Parts and Refurbishment.

 

The warranty for the system is only valid if spare parts, accessories and consumables used are original parts and consumables delivered from DDD.

 

Prices of Accessories, Consumables and Spare Parts are according to current pricelist.

 

Refurbishment of applicators:

 

The Applicator is not covered by a warranty. The light source and filter in the applicator are consumables that wear down during use (depending on the settings) and have a limited lifetime. Therefore the applicator needs to be refurbished. Refurbishments are charged as follows:

 

*

 

When an applicator is returned for refurbishment, it must be accompanied by a written order stating the applicator serial number. A floppy disc containing the number of shots released by the applicator must be enclosed with the order. If the diskette is not enclosed, the refurbishment will be charged at EURO * transfer price.

 

The Parties agree that refurbishments will be performed by Distributor soonest possible. Principal will supply, at cost plus a * handling fee, all tools and instruments required for performing said refurbishments. Distributor will send technical personnel for training at Principal’s facilities.

 

Distributor will purchase all consumables/parts needed for the refurbishments from Principal as per Principal’s distributor price list.

 

18



 

Appendix C: Minimum Technical Personnel Requirements.

 

Distributor must have technical personnel employed - alternatively have external engineers contractually engaged - to perform systems installation, post installation training, software upgrades and field service on the products.

 

Systems installation, post installation training, software upgrades and field service on the products can only be performed by Technical Personal trained by DDD or duly authorized trainers from Candela’s Tech Support group.

 

The number of technically skilled persons available must at all times be sufficient to respond to customer requests for support and / or service as well as any problem affecting safety of use no later than 24 hours after a customer call. In case of injuries and / or operational problems affecting safety, which have caused or could have caused injury, Distributor must notify DDD within 24 hours. The reporting must be according to the PMS and Vigilance requirements specified in the Council Directive 93/42/EEC of 14 June 1993 concerning medical devices.
