If the goods under retention of title are processed, combined and/or mixed with other materials by the Buyer, we shall acquire co-ownership of the new product in the ratio of the invoice value of the goods under retention of title to that of the other materials used. If our ownership ceases as a result of combining or mixing, the Buyer hereby assigns title to the new products or materials to the extent of the invoice value of the goods under retention of title and shall store these on our behalf free of charge.

The same applies to any other claims superseding the goods under retention of title or otherwise arising with respect to these, such as insurance claims or tort claims in the event of loss or destruction. We hereby revocably authorize the Buyer to collect the claims assigned to us in its own name and for our account.

7.5. Duty of notification. In the event of seizure of the goods under retention of title by any third party and in particular by attachment, the Buyer shall immediately disclose to such third-party our ownership of the goods and notify us thereof accordingly so as to enable us to assert our ownership rights. To the extent that the third party is unable to reimburse us for the legal costs incurred in this connection, the Buyer shall be liable for payment of such costs.

7.6. Event of realization. Should we rescind the contract due to a breach by the Buyer of any terms of the contract, in particular in the event of delayed payment, we shall be entitled to demand the return of goods under retention of title.

7.7. If this retention of title is not enforceable towards third parties under any relevant law or in any relevant jurisdiction or as a result of any other reason, we shall be conferred the security and collateral rights permissible under such law or in such jurisdiction as security for due payment of the invoice.

8.5. A late payment charge shall be applied for overdue payments in the form of the interest rate set out in our invoices, or if no such rate is specified, in the form of a rate of nine percent (9%) per annum calculated from the date on which the Seller should have received the payment until such date that the Seller receives the funds in full and without liens or encumbrances.

8.6. Additionally, the Seller is entitled to apply a fee up to fifteen percent (15%) of the outstanding sum to cover any administrative expenses and commercial disruptions, without prejudice to our right to claim higher damages.

8.10. If the Buyer receives any communication by e-mail or otherwise regarding a change of bank account numbers, the Buyer should immediately contact its usual contact person at the Seller by phone to check this information, in order to prevent possible fraud.
