The risk shall be transferred to the purchaser as soon as we have handed over the goods to the forwarding agent etc. This also applies to consignments within our places of trading, UK.

If the purchaser refuses to accept goods sent to him, we shall no longer be obliged to send them again but shall have the right to set the purchaser a time limit of 14 days to collect the goods on our premises, on pain of cancellation of contract. Should the purchaser not collect the goods within the set time limit, we have the right to cancel the contract and to claim damages for non-performance. Such damages shall amount to 20 % of the gross invoice value for parts and other services, without any obligation on our part to prove the amount of our actual losses.

VI Retention of title
The goods shall remain our property until full payment of all our claims against the purchaser, irrespective of the cause in law, and until redemption of any bills and cheques accepted in payment, even if the price for particular claims has been paid. In case of current accounts, the reserved property shall serve as security for our outstanding balance claim. In case of processing, any acquisition of property by the purchaser with regard to the reserved goods shall be excluded. Any processing by the purchaser is carried out in our name. The new object shall serve as a security, but only up to the amount of the reserved goods. If the goods are processed together with other goods we do not own, we shall have joint ownership of this object corresponding to the proportion of value of the reserved good as compared to the other processed goods. The new object shall be considered as a reserved good as per definition in the present conditions. Any receivables due to the purchaser from the resale of reserved goods are already assigned to us now, irrespective of the fact whether the reserved goods are sold to one or several customers, without further processing or after they have been processed. The assigned claim shall serve as a security, but only up to the amount of the reserved goods that were actually sold. If the purchaser sells the reserved good together with other goods we do not own – either without further processing or after they have been processed -, then the assignment of the purchase price receivable shall be restricted to the value of the reserved goods.
Any resale of the reserved good by the purchaser shall be subject to the condition that the purchase price claimed on account of the resale is assigned to us. He shall not be entitled to any other disposal. The purchaser shall be entitled to collect the receivables but shall not be entitled to dispose of them in any other way, in particular not to assign them. As long as he duly fulfils his obligations to pay we shall not exercise our right of collection. Upon request, the purchaser must disclose the debtors of the assigned receivables and must inform them of the assignment.
Following complete settlement of all of our claims resulting from the business relationship, title shall immediately pass on to the purchaser and he shall also be entitled to the assigned claims again.
The securities to which we are entitled in accordance with the above stipulations shall be released by us – at our option – as far as their value exceeds the claims to be secured by 20 % (on the condition, however, that except for claims in a current account, a release shall only be made fur such deliveries or their replacement value which in turn have been paid in full). For the duration of our retention of title, the purchaser shall inform us immediately of any enforcement measures taken against the object of sale – either processed or unprocessed – or against the claims assigned by way of extended retention of title.
In case of compulsory enforcement, the purchaser shall immediately take any measures that are required to counteract any adverse effects on our interests and rights. The costs for any intervention shall be borne by the purchaser.
In case of suspension of payment the purchaser shall be obliged to separate the goods delivered by us that are still available and to supply us with a detailed list. If we take back the reserved goods, such taking back shall not be considered as cancellation of the contract unless cancellation is expressly declared.
We shall be entitled to contractual lien with regard to any claims against the purchaser as well as to other objects which were given to us by the purchaser or
which we have acquired.
Any compensation claims of any kind, in particular claims resulting from delay, inability to perform, positive violation of contractual duty, culpa in contrahendo and from unlawful acts shall be excluded unless the damage was caused by wilful or grossly negligent action on our part. The purchaser shall bear the risk for any test drive.
In as far as our liability is concerned, only monetary compensation up to the amount of the replacement value can be demanded.
