6. If the customer is in default of acceptance or if the delivery is delayed due to other circumstances for which he is responsible, the risk is transferred to the customer from the day of the notification of readiness.

§ 4 Warranty, inspection and notification obligations


1. SachsenLeinen GmbH guarantees within the scope of the following provisions that deliveries and services are free from defects in the legal warranty sense and - insofar as such promises have been made - the specifications agreed in writing and warranted properties are adhered to.


2. The warranty rights of the commercial customer presuppose that he has duly fulfilled his inspection and complaint obligations according to §§ 377, 378 HGB. Warranty claims do not exist if the error that occurred is causally related to the fact that previous errors were not reported immediately.


3. If there is a defect in the goods for which SachsenLeinen GmbH is responsible, SachsenLeinen GmbH is initially entitled, at its own option, to either remedy the defect or deliver a replacement. If SachsenLeinen GmbH does not remedy the defect or deliver a replacement within a reasonable period, the customer is entitled to cancel the contract or to request a corresponding reduction in payment.

§ 6 retention of title


1. SachsenLeinen GmbH retains ownership of the delivered goods until all payments from the delivery contract have been received. If the customer acts in breach of contract, in particular in the event of default in payment, SachsenLeinen GmbH is entitled to take back the delivery item. The customer is obliged to surrender. Taking back the delivery item does not constitute a withdrawal from the contract.


2. The customer is entitled to process and resell the goods in the course of his ordinary course of business. He already now assigns to SachsenLeinen all claims or surrogates in the amount of the invoice amount including statutory VAT that arise from the resale to his customers or to third parties, regardless of whether the delivery item was resold without or after processing. The customer is authorized to collect this claim after it has been assigned. The authority of SachsenLeinen GmbH to collect the claim itself remains unaffected by this, but SachsenLeinen GmbH undertakes not to collect the claim as long as the customer properly meets his payment obligations and is not in default of payment.

The same applies to the items resulting from processing as to the goods subject to retention of title.


5. If the goods are inseparably connected or mixed with other items that do not belong to SachsenLeinen GmbH, SachsenLeinen GmbH acquires co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the value of the goods to the other connected or mixed items at the time of connection or mixing.

Claims for damages against SachsenLeinen GmbH are excluded regardless of the legal basis, in particular due to delay or impossibility to breach advisory and secondary contractual obligations, pre-contractual obligations, positive breach of contract and unlawful acts, unless SachsenLeinen GmbH acted willfully or with gross negligence or the claims for damages result from the violation of a guaranteed property.
