c. the statute of limitations does not start again if a replacement delivery takes place within the scope of the liability for defects.

11) Indemnification for infringement of third-party rights

11.1 If the supplier, in addition to the delivery of goods, also commits the processing of the goods according to the customer's specifications, the customer must ensure that the content provided to the supplier by him for the purpose of processing does not infringe the rights of third parties (eg copyrights or trademark rights). The customer indemnifies the supplier from claims of third parties which they may assert against the supplier in connection with a violation of their rights by the contractual use of the contents of the customer by the supplier. The customer also assumes the reasonable costs of the necessary legal defense, including all court and legal fees in the statutory amount. This does not apply if the customer is not responsible for the infringement. The customer is obligated to immediately, truthfully and completely provide the supplier, in case of claims by third parties, with all information required for the examination of the claims and a defense.

If the customer is an entrepreneur within the meaning of Section 1.2, then the place of jurisdiction of the supplier shall be the exclusive place of jurisdiction. For both the entrepreneur's actions against the consumer and the consumer's claims against the trader, the place of jurisdiction is the domicile of the consumer if the consumer is domiciled in the EU but not in Austria. If the consumer is domiciled or habitually resident in Austria, he may only be sued in the court in whose district the place of residence or habitual residence is; In this case, the entrepreneur can only be sued by the customer at his place of business, unless another place of jurisdiction exists by law.
