Lien and Right of Retention
Full Stop Technics has by virtue of the Maintenance Service performed a contractual lien with respect to the Maintenance Object in its custody as well as with respect to other items of Customer in Full Stop Technics' custody to secure any claims of Full Stop Technics against Customer out of or in connection with the Customer Agreement as well as to secure any claims of affiliates of Full Stop Technics against Customer. Such right may also be asserted for services previously performed or materials previously supplied and with respect to claims resulting from a contractual relationship of Customer and Full Stop Technics and/or any of its affiliates. The contractual lien shall entitle Full Stop Technics and/or any of its affiliates to publicly offer the Maintenance Object for sale no earlier than one month after advising the Customer of its intent to do so. To affect such sale Full Stop Technics shall not be required to obtain an enforceable title or to comply with the regulations governing forced sale.
Further, Full Stop Technics has by virtue of the Maintenance Service performed a right of retention with respect to the Maintenance Object in its custody as well as with respect to other items of Customer in Full Stop Technics' custody to secure any claims of Full Stop Technics against Customer out of or in connection with the Customer Agreement as well as to secure any claims of affiliates of Full Stop Technics against Customer. Such right as well as a set-off right may also be asserted for services previously performed or materials previously supplied. The right of retention as well as a right to set off any due claims of Full Stop Technics against Customer with claims of Customer against Full Stop Technics may also be applied with respect to claims resulting from a contractual relationship of Customer and Full Stop Technics and/or any of its affiliates.
Full Stop Technics shall also have the right to cease any ongoing Maintenance Service without notice until all payments due under the Customer Agreement or any other contractual relationship between Customer and Full Stop Technics or Customer and Full Stop Technics and/or any of its affiliates have been made.

The Customer is obligated to comply with all existing import and export prohibitions and restrictions of the applicable Country and The United States of America. If assigned and agreed in writing, Full Stop Technics will perform the necessary customs clearance in the name and on behalf of the Customer or on behalf of Full Stop Technics. In these cases, the Customer is obligated to provide Full Stop Technics with all necessary information and documentation (especially any required licenses regarding prohibitions and restrictions). Full Stop Technics shall not be liable for any delay due to the late delivery of information and documentation by Customer or due to delays in the customs clearance process. All duties and taxes that may occur due to the importation or exportation (defined above) must be borne by the Customer or will be charged by Full Stop Technics to Customer.
