Until the receipt of such an order confirmation, the purchaser is entitled to withdraw from the order without giving reasons.

If the seller realizes that punctual delivery is impossible as a whole or in part, the seller is bound to notify the purchaser immediately in writing by specifying the reasons and the expected additional delivery period. The purchaser’s assessment shall be decisive for determining the delivered quantity, unless any assessment by the railway authorities is presented.

In any event the purchaser is not obliged to accept goods that are presented to the purchaser by the seller.

Payments made do not constitute an acknowledgement of the correctness of the delivery nor a waiver of any rights on the purchaser’s part. The purchaser is entitled to offsetting if any counter-claims exist. Any adjustments of this approach require in all cases the written consent of an authorised representative of the purchaser.

Unless agreed otherwise, the selling prices applicable on the date of delivery are charged and any transportation or other incidental expenses are invoiced separately. Any discounts or rebates granted only apply to the respective delivery and not to any follow-up orders or deliveries, including if the seller does not object to any deductions made by the purchaser in the case of possible follow-up orders or deliveries.

In the latter case the seller is entitled, irrespective of a fault of the purchaser, to demand or to retain the agreed down payment, but at least 15% of the purchase price, as a penalty.

If the goods are commingled or processed, all resulting co-ownership claims shall be vested in the seller instead of in the purchaser. In the event of pledging of or any other claims to the delivered goods on the part of third parties, the purchaser shall notify the seller immediately. If the purchaser fails to pay the purchase price indicated in the invoice sent to the purchaser, including the value added tax stated, by the agreed due date, the purchaser shall secure the seller’s claim still outstanding by creating a sufficient lien, at its option, either on real property in the ownership of the purchaser, on items of tangible fixed assets, on investments held by the purchaser in third-party companies, on items of inventories, on bank balances with domestic credit institutions as well as on unconditional claims under contractual deliveries and services provided to customers with impeccable creditworthiness, in each case to the extent of the due purchase price claim.

The purchaser must inspect the goods immediately upon acceptance or arrival at the place of delivery, in the presence of the forwarder or transporter, in order to notify the seller immediately in writing if goods are damaged.
