Article 9 - Delivery and acceptance of the products
9.1 Deadlines announced by Magic FX have been determined to the best of Magic FX's knowledge on the basis of the information available when the agreement was established but are not an integral part of the agreement and shall be observed by Magic FX to the extent possible. Magic FX shall not be in default by merely missing a deadline and Buyer may not derive a right to dissolve the agreement in whole or in part nor claim damages based on the mere fact that Magic FX missed an announced deadline. Deadlines do not apply if they cannot be honoured because of circumstances beyond the control of Magic FX which occurred after the agreement was established. Deadlines shall become valid only when an agreement has been reached concerning all commercial and technical details and when all necessary information is in possession of Magic FX, the stipulated (term) payment has been received and the conditions necessary for the implementation of the agreement have been fulfilled.
9.2 Buyer shall be obligated to take delivery of the products within the stipulated deadlines.

9.9 Notwithstanding Articles 4.1, 9.2 and 9.6, the products to be supplied by Magic FX shall be for the risk of Buyer as of the moment in which (an agent of) Buyer has the actual power of disposition over these products and/or as of the date on which Buyer is in default of taking delivery of the products to be supplied by Magic FX.
9.10 Magic FX shall not be obligated, without its prior written consent, to accept any products returned by Buyer to Magic FX. The acceptance of any products returned by Buyer shall not imply that Magic FX accepts the reason for their return. Buyer shall owe the stipulated amount until Magic FX credits Buyer for such products. If Magic FX does not accept returned products, Buyer shall be obligated to reimburse Magic FX for any costs incurred by Magic FX in connection with the returned products. If Buyer makes products available to Magic FX, Buyer shall be responsible for ensuring that such products satisfy the specifications necessary for executing the order.
