The aforementioned warranty is intended to create a risk distribution between the Seller and the Buyer such that the consequences of a breach of a warranty will always be entirely at the Seller’s expense and risk and that the Seller can never invoke Section 6:75 of the Dutch Civil Code in respect of a breach of a warranty. The provisions of the previous sentence also apply if the Buyer was aware or could have been aware of the breach by conducting an investigation. 

3. The said guarantee does not apply if the defect has arisen as a result of injudicious or improper use or if – without permission – the buyer or third parties have made changes or tried to make changes or have used the purchased item for purposes for which it is not intended.
