Terms of payment:

The individually agreed terms of payment apply. Payments must be made free of postage and expenses. Offsetting against disputed counterclaims and the retention of due invoice amounts are inadmissible.

This also applies if the buyer has paid for certain goods delivered by us that he has designated. Bills of exchange and cheques shall only be deemed to have been paid after they have been cashed. In the case of a current account, the reserved title shall be deemed to be security for our balance claim. The buyer is entitled to process or transform the reserved goods. Through the processing, the buyer does not acquire ownership of the new item. Rather, the Seller and the Buyer agree that any processing by the Buyer shall be carried out for the Seller without obliging the Seller and that the new item created by the transformation shall be created for the Seller and transferred to him as his property by the Buyer taking it into custody for the Seller.

The processed goods serve to secure the reserved seller only in the amount of the value of the reserved goods. If the reserved goods are processed with other objects, the seller acquires the co-ownership right to the new item in the ratio of the invoice value of the goods delivered by him in relation to the invoice values of the other processed items at the time of processing.

The same applies if a significant deterioration occurs in the financial circumstances of the buyer after delivery. The seller is then entitled to take direct possession of the reserved goods.

The costs arising from the taking back of the reserved goods shall be borne by the buyer. The seller is entitled to make the best possible use of the returned reserved goods together with accessories by private sale. After deduction of the costs, the proceeds will be credited to the buyer's debt. Any excess proceeds will be paid to him. The taking possession of the reserved goods shall not be deemed a withdrawal from the contract. If the security arising in accordance with the above provisions exceeds our claim by more than 20%, we shall release the excess security at the request of the buyer.
