    Retention of Title

    1 The delivered goods shall remain the property of PAIRUI until any and all claims of PAIRUI arising under its business relationship with Customer have been fully paid.

    2 In the case of open account this retention of title shall be deemed to be security of the claim for the balance to which PAIRUI is entitled.

    3 Customer shall only be allowed to sell the products subject to retention of title within normal and proper business transactions. Customer is not entitled to pledge the products subject to retention of title grant chattel mortgages on them or make other dispositions endangering PAIRUI’s title to such products. Customer hereby assigns its claim under the resale of the products to PAIRUI, and PAIRUI hereby accepts such assignment. Should Customer sell the products subject to retention of title after processing or transformation or joining of such products with other goods or together with other goods, this assignment of claim shall only be agreed to in the amount of the portion equivalent to the price agreed to between PAIRUI and Customer plus a safety margin of 10% of this price. Customer is granted the revocable authorization to collect in trust the claims assigned to PAIRUI in its own name. PAIRUI may revoke such authorization and the right to resell the products if Customer is in default of the performance of material obligations such as making payment to PAIRUI.

    4 Any processing or transformation of the products subject to retention of title by Customer shall always be for PAIRUI. If products subject to retention of title are processed with other goods, PAIRUI shall acquire joint ownership of the new goods in the ratio of the value of the products subject to retention of title to the other processed goods at the time of processing. The same regulations applying to the products subject to retention of title shall otherwise apply to the new goods created by processing.

    5 Should the products subject to retention of title be joined with other goods, PAIRUI shall acquire joint ownership of the new goods in the ratio of the value of the products subject to retention of title to the other goods at the date of joining. Should the joining of the goods occur in such manner that Customer's goods are to be viewed as the main goods, it shall be deemed to have been agreed that Customer shall assign proportionate joint ownership to PAIRUI. Customer shall hold the joint ownership created in such manner in custody for PAIRUI.

    6 Customer shall provide PAIRUI at all times with all desired information concerning the products subject to retention of title or claims assigned to PAIRUI under this contract. Attachments of or claims by third parties to the products subject to retention of title shall be immediately reported to PAIRUI by Customer and accompanied by the necessary documents. Customer shall at the same time advise the third party of PAIRUI’s retention of title. The costs of a defense against attachments and claims shall be borne by Customer.

    7 Customer is obliged to treat the products subject to retention of title with care for the duration of the retention of title.

    8 Should the realizable value of the securities exceed all of PAIRUI’s claims which are to be secured by more than 10%, Customer shall be entitled to demand are lease to such extent.

    9 Should Customer be in default of material obligations such as payment to PAIRUI, PAIRUI may with the exclusion of all rights to withhold (unless the counterclaim is uncontested or has been finally adjudicated) demand back the products subject to retention of title and otherwise realize upon them for the purpose of satisfying its matured claims against Customer without prejudice to any other rights PAIRUI may have. In such case, Customer shall grant PAIRUI or PAIRUI’s agents’ immediate access to the documents and products subject to retention of title surrender the same and/or give information about the stay of the same. Should PAIRUI demand surrender under this clause, this shall not be deemed to be a rescission of the contract.

    10 In the case of deliveries to other jurisdictions in which the foregoing provisions governing the retention of title do not have the same security affect as in Germany, Customer shall do everything to create equivalent security rights for PAIRUI without undue delay. Customer shall cooperate in all measures such as registration, publication, etc. which are necessary and beneficial to the validity and enforceability of such security rights.

    11 On PAIRUI’s demand, Customer is obliged to insure the products subject to the retention of title appropriately, to provide PAIRUI with the respective proof of such insurance and to assign the claims arising from such insurance to PAIRUI.

PAIRUI may also demand from Customer that it returns the object of delivery to which objection was made to PAIRUI at PAIRUI’s expense.

    7 In case the object of delivery contains a defect subject to warranty obligation the customer shall give PAIRUI the opportunity to remove the defect at its option by remedying the defect or delivery of are placement both free of charge to Customer first before it asserts any claims or rights (rescission, reduction of the purchase price, claims for compensation, reimbursement of expenditure and loss of profit). If substitute performance fails after at least two attempts, if substitute performance is impossible, if PAIRUI refuses substitute performance or it is deemed unreasonable for the customer, the customer may rescind the contract or reduce the remuneration (reduction of the purchase price). Section 8 of hereof shall apply to claims for damages based on defects.

    8 Customer shall give PAIRUI the necessary reasonable period of time and opportunity for remedying the defect or delivering is placement.

    11 Should a defect not be removed or are placement not be delivered within a reasonable time period granted by Customer or should the removal of a defect by remedy or the delivery of are placement fail, should such remedy be unreasonable for Customer or has PAIRUI refused such remedy, Customer may demand, at its option, the rescission of the contract, a reasonable reduction of the purchase price or it may claim damages pursuant to para. 8 or the reimbursement of its futile expenses.

    12 The limitation period for the warranty claims shall be twelve months from the handover of the object of delivery to Customer.
