first delivery to the buyer.
After the risk on the supply has passed to the buyer, AST A/S has no responsibility for defects in excess of the
liabilities laid down in the above.
Thus, AST A/S disclaims responsibility for any indirect loss, e.g. loss of profits or time, which the buyer may have
incurred as a result of the defect.
