§ 3 Retention of Title

1. We reserve ownership of the delivered goods until all payments from the delivery contract have been settled in full.

He already assigns to us all claims in the amount of the invoice that accrue to him through the resale to a third party. We accept the assignment. After the assignment, the customer is further authorized to collect the claim. We reserve the right to collect the claim ourselves as soon as the entrepreneur does not properly meet his payment obligations and defaults on payment. The same applies if the customer generally stops making payments or files for bankruptcy.In these cases, we are entitled to notification of the debtors, the assigned claims, all information required for the assertion, the delivery of the documents required for the assertion, and the customer notifying the debtors of the assignment.

If processing takes place with items that do not belong to us, we shall acquire co-ownership of the new item in relation to the value of the goods delivered by us to the other processed items. This applies even if the goods are mixed with other items that do not belong to us.

7. In the event that the customer's claims are included in a current account in the event of resale, the customer hereby also assigns his claim on the current account against his customer to us.

After the payment period has expired, the customer is in default of payment. During the delay, the customer must pay interest on the debt at the statutory default interest rate. We reserve the right to prove and assert higher damage caused by delay to the customer.

4. The customer only has a right to offset if his counterclaims have been legally established or have been recognized by us. The customer can only exercise rights of retention if his counterclaim is based on the same contractual relationship.

5. All of our claims are due immediately and the granting of a payment term lapses if the payment term for a claim from an ongoing business relationship is not met.

6. Unforeseeable changes in customs duties, import and export fees as well as obligations triggered by the fulfillment entitle us to make corresponding price changes.

7. If, after the delivery has been made and the contractual relationship has ended properly, customs duties, import and export fees and other sovereign costs over which we have no influence are subsequently reassessed, we are entitled to make a reassessment within a period of 6 months from the legally binding subsequent assessment request the increase amount.

Even then, they are not considered a fixed transaction.Force majeure, strikes, measures and other unforeseeable obstacles that we cannot avert despite the care that is reasonable under the circumstances - regardless of whether they occurred in our company or at a supplier - such as operational disruptions, official intervention, delays in the delivery of goods and components, others Incorrect or untimely self-delivery releases us from our delivery obligation for the duration of its effects and in the event of impossibility.If delivery subsequently becomes impossible or unreasonable as a result of the aforementioned events, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract.

§ 7 Limitation of Warranty and Liability

1. The customer's warranty rights presuppose that he has duly fulfilled his obligations to examine and give notice of defects according to §§ 377, 378 HGB.

2. We provide a warranty for defects in the purchased item for which we are responsible, by subsequent or replacement delivery, at our discretion.

However, the customer must bear the additional costs that arise from the fact that the purchased item was taken somewhere else from its original place of delivery

5. The foregoing limitation of liability does not apply if the cause of the damage is based on grossly negligent or intentional action. Then we are liable according to the legal regulations. This also applies if the customer requests damages instead of performance due to the lack of a guaranteed quality of the item. 

6. If an essential contractual obligation has been culpably violated, liability is limited to the damage typical of the contract; otherwise it is excluded according to paragraph 4.

If the limitation of liability according to § 7 paragraph 5 does not apply to claims from producer liability according to § 823 BGB for property damage, our liability is limited to the compensation of the insurance company. If this does not occur or does not occur in full, we are liable up to the amount of the coverage.

4. Insofar as our liability is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability of our employees, workers, employees, representatives and vicarious agents.

§ 9 Industrial Property Right
