7. Reservation of Proprietary Rights
The delivered goods remain our property until complete payment. If the goods are resold or processed by the buyer, we are to be considered as manufacturer according to § 950 BGB and achieve the property of all intermediate or final products. The processing party is only the depositary. Other items, which are not our property, we achieve the co-property of this new product in proportion of the goods reserved to the other components.
The goods may only be sold within ordinary and regular business transactions and only, if claims arising from resale have not been assigned to a third party. The claims of the buyer resulting from resale are to be considered as assigned to us upon conclusion of the contract of sale. This is also valid, if our goods are combined or processed with other items. In this case, the assigned claims serve as our security only to the amount of the value of the sold merchandise under reservation of proprietary rights. The buyer is obliged to name us third debtors upon request and to inform them about the assignment. Amounts, which have been collected by him, have to be paid over to us, if our claims are due for payment.
Distraints and hypothecations of the goods under reservation of proprietary rights or of the assigned claims are not permissible. The buyer has to inform us immediately about any access of a third party to the goods under reserve of proprietary rights or to the claims assigned to us. Should, in the event of sales to foreign countries, the retention of title not be admitted with the same effect as under German Law, the goods involved will remain our property until payment of all our claims resulting from the contractual relationship brought about by sale of said goods. In case, however, this retention of title is not admitted with the same effect as under German Law, but if it is allowed to reserve other rights to said goods, we will be entitled to exercise all these rights. The buyer shall be obliged to co-operate in all measures we intend to take for the protection of our right of ownership or, in its place, of any other title to the goods.
Tools, moulds or other devices, which have been produced by us or handed over to the customer, remain our property, even if the customer has paid the costs for these in full or in part.
