Annexe to the GTCs
concerning the retention of ownership in business relationships with our commercial customers (traders):

(1) The goods delivered remain the property of the seller (so-called reserved goods) until all claims against the buyer resulting from the business relationship have completely been fulfilled. Fulfilling particular claims of the seller or making a balance and acknowledgement of a balance do not affect seller´s reservation of the ownership. If the parties agreed upon seller´s bill guaranty concerning the payment of the purchase price, the retention of ownership shall not finish until the bill of exchange has been met by the buyer as drawee. In the case of buyer´s default in payment the seller has the right, after sending the buyer a reminder, to take the reserved goods back and the buyer is obliged to give the reserved goods back to the seller.
(2) Processing of the reserved goods is to be regarded as effected in the name of the seller so that the ownership of the new movable goods resides with the seller without his being obliged. If seller's goods are processed together with goods of other companies, the seller obtains co-ownership of the new goods according to the ratio between the reserved goods value and the value of the other goods at the time of the processing. If seller's goods are mixed or in any way connected with goods according to §§ 947, 948 of German Civil Code (BGB) he does not own, the seller obtains co-ownership in accordance with legal regulations. Should the buyer obtain sole ownership by processing, mixing or connecting seller´s goods with goods of other companies (other goods), the buyer is now transferring the co-ownership to the seller according to the value ratio between the reserved goods and the goods of other companies (other goods) at the time of the processing. The buyer is obliged to store the reserved goods (seller´s possession or co-possession) at his own costs.
(3) If the reserved good are resold alone or with other goods not owned by the seller, the claim is regarded as assigned to the seller according to the ratio existing between seller's ownership (or co-ownership) of the reserved goods and remaining goods. The seller accepts the assignment of claims. The value of the reserved goods consists of amount of the invoice and a covering extra charge of 10 %. The extra charge of 10 % shall not apply if there are also claims of third parties. If the seller co-owns the resold reserved goods, the assigned claims regard only the proportionate value of the goods the seller owns. Paragraph 1, clause 2 applies to extended retention of ownership; assignment in advance according to paragraph 3, clauses 1 and 3 concerns the demand of a balance.
(4) The buyer is entitled and authorized to resell, use or install the reserved goods only within the scope of an ordinary and proper business transaction so that the claims will be transferred to the seller according to paragraph 3. The buyer is not entitled to treat the reserved goods in other ways, e.g. to pledge them or transfer ownership by way of security.
(5) The buyer is obliged to immediately inform the seller about compulsory execution measures of third parties concerning the reserved goods or assigned claims. He is also obliged to hand over documents that are needed to enter an objection to the seller.
(6) If there are a stoppage of payments, request and opening of the bankruptcy or extrajudicial composition proceedings, the right to resell, use or to install the reserved goods and the direct debit mandate for assigned claims extinct. Direct debit mandate concerning cheque and bill protests also finishes.
(7) If the value of the granted security provided for the seller exceeds the total amount of the seller's claims by more than 10%, the seller is obliged to transfer it to the buyer or release the security in the manner of his choice. After fulfilling all seller´s claims resulting from the business relationship, the ownership of the reserved goods and the assigned claims shall be transferred to the buyer.
