If the purchaser is in default of acceptance or culpably violates other obligations to cooperate, we shall be entitled to demand compensation for any damage incurred, including any additional expenses.

§ 7 Transfer of risk upon dispatch

If the goods are despatched to the purchaser at the request of the purchaser, the risk of accidental loss or accidental deterioration of the goods shall pass to the purchaser upon dispatch to the purchaser, at the latest when leaving the factory / warehouse. This applies regardless of whether the shipment of goods from the place of performance or whom bears the freight costs.

In particular, he is obliged to adequately insure these at his own expense against theft, fire and water damage as new value (note: only permissible for the sale of high-quality goods). If maintenance and inspection work has to be carried out, the customer has to carry it out on time at his own expense. As long as the ownership has not yet been transferred, the purchaser must notify us immediately in writing if the delivered object is seized or subjected to other interventions by third parties. Insofar as the third party is unable to reimburse us for the court and out-of-court costs of a claim in accordance with section 771 of the Code of Civil Procedure, the customer is liable for the loss incurred by us.

The customer already assigns to us the claims against the customer from the resale of the reserved goods in the amount of the final invoice amount agreed with us (including value added tax). This assignment applies regardless of whether the purchased item was resold without or after processing. The customer remains authorized to collect the claim, even after the assignment. Our power to collect the claim ourselves remains unaffected. However, we will not collect the claim as long as the customer meets his payment obligations from the proceeds received, is not in default of payment and, in particular, no application for opening insolvency proceedings has been filed or payment has ceased.

If the purchased item is processed with other items not belonging to us, we acquire the co-ownership of the new item in proportion of the objective value of our purchased item to the other processed items at the time of processing. The same applies to the case of mixing. If the mixing takes place in such a way that the item of the customer is to be regarded as the main item, it shall be deemed agreed that the customer transfers pro rata co-ownership to us and secures the resulting sole ownership or co-ownership for us. To secure our claims against the purchaser, the purchaser also assigns to us such claims that accrue to him as a result of the combination of the reserved goods with a property against a third party; We already accept this assignment.
