They are, how-ever, not binding. Also, a fixed delivery deadline decided upon in writing shall be considered agreed with the notification of readiness for dispatch, even if dispatch will not be performed in a timely manner, due to circumstances which are not justifiable by the Company. However, the Buyer shall commit himself to accept the goods after the agreed date. All terms of delivery not expressly la-beled as binding shall be considered non-binding.  

3.2. In case of stoppage of work, strikes, operational breakdowns, etc. with the Company and in case of unavoidable events or force majeure the Company may, irrespective of who or how such event has been expressed, reasonably extend the delivery deadlines or terminate the contract, without such action constituting justification for the submission of claims for damages by the Buyer. Claims for damages on the part of the Buyer shall only be justified in case of at least gross negligence on the part of the Company or its management bodies.  Compensation for collateral damage shall expressly be excluded.

 3.3 For a delivery of goods with a factory certification the Company guarantees a faultlessness of the object of purchase according with the relevant state of technology. In case of enforcement of warranty claims the Buyer shall be obliged to allow a period of at least six months for improvement. He shall only be entitled to price reduction or conversion provided that all the remedies im-plemented by the Company within a reasonable period of time have not achie-ved the envisaged effect.

3.4 For used goods resp. grade 2A goods warranty claims shall expressly be excluded. Moreover, liability for defects caused by improper handling or wear and tear shall also expressly be excluded.

4.  Transfer of Risk:

The same shall be valid especially for all reminder fees, cash expenses and costs as well as for all default interest.

Should the retention of title expire due to combination or commingling, the Buyer shall already now assign the property rights on the new goods, he shall be entitled to, to the extent of the value of the invoice of the good delivered under retention of title and shall be bound to maintain the goods in custody for the Company free of charge. The resulting joint ownership shares shall be considered goods delivered under re-tention of title.  

5.5. The Buyer shall cede claims arising from the resale of goods under reten-tion of title to the Company and such shall serve as security to the same extent as the good itself has served. In case of sale of goods in which the Company has co-ownership, the transfer of the claim shall be in proportion with the extent of the degree of co-ownership.  

5.6. The Buyer shall not be entitled to an assignment of the claim, also not within the framework of factoring transactions, unless he is able to finally obtain the full equivalent value of the claim.

The Buyer shall be liable to provide all information necessary for an assertion of rights and shall allow access to the business premises, especially for inspection. Any enforcement of the retention of title including subsequent utilization shall not have any influence on the va-lidity of the contract. On the contrary, the Buyer is obliged to immediately cover the remaining purchase price, which may possibly remain after the utilization of the purchase object.
