3.2: In case of late payment by the customer, we shall be entitled to default interest of 9.2% p.a. above the base interest rate. In the event of default of payment, the customer undertakes to reimburse the dunning and collection charges incurred to us, insofar as they are necessary for the purpose of legal prosecution. In all cases, this shall include a lump sum for reminder fees of EUR 25.00 pursuant to § 458 of the Austrian Corporation Code. The assertion of further rights and claims remains unaffected.

4. Delivery time, delay in delivery, impossibility, acceptance delay
4.1: We shall only be obligated to perform the service as soon as the customer has fulfilled all its obligations, which are necessary for the delivery (e.g. receipt of the agreed down payment). The delivery times and dates shall be fulfilled by us as far as possible. Unless expressly agreed as binding, they are not binding and are always to be understood as the estimated time of delivery and handover to the customer. A withdrawal from the contract by the customer due to default in delivery shall only be possible after setting a reasonable additional period of at least 4 weeks. The withdrawal must be asserted by registered letter. The right of withdrawal relates only to the delivery or service part for which arrears have occurred.
4.2: The delivery deadline is deemed met if the delivery item has left our factory or the readiness for shipment has been notified. Subsequent changes and additions of the customer extend the delivery time correspondingly. The same applies if unforeseen hindrances occur outside our sphere of influence and/or that of our subcontractor, such as force majeure, war or terrorist attacks, earthquakes, conflagrations, floods, landslides and avalanches, strike, lockout, delay in the delivery of essential raw materials, other materials or parts.
4.3: Claims for compensation of the customer are excluded in all cases of late or unfulfilled delivery even after expiry of the period of grace, except in the case of intent or gross negligence.

In the event of making use of them, a penalty of 25% of the invoice amount (excluding VAT), which shall become immediately due and not be subject to the judicial moderation right, shall be deemed agreed.
5. Delivery, shipping, transfer of risk
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, delivery of the goods shall take place from our factory or our respective permanent establishment. The customer is obligated to accept our deliveries and services. We deliver without insurance. The risk of accidental damage, the loss or misplacement of the delivery item shall pass to the customer as soon as the delivery item has been handed over to the carrier or the other shipping party, in case of default of acceptance by the customer from readiness for dispatch. This also applies if partial deliveries are made or if we have assumed other services. In the absence of an express agreement to the contrary, the goods are considered to be sold “ex works” INCOTERMS 2010.

6.1. CADstar shall retain ownership of the delivered contract goods until full payment of the claims of CADstar from the business relationship with the customer, but in any case until full payment of the claims under the contract.
6.2: During the period of retention of title, the customer shall be entitled to own and use the contractual items, as long as it fulfils its obligations from the present contract, in particular the agreed retention of title, and is not in default of payment. The resale of contractual items subject to retention of title shall be permitted to the customer only in the context of its normal business operations and the right conferred by CADstar to resell the contractual items. The customer relinquishes in advance all claims arising from the resale of the contractual items to CADstar as a precautionary measure. This assignment of claims must be stated in the accounts of the customer. The customer is entitled and obligated to collect the claims ceded to CADstar insofar as CADstar does not expressly revoke this authorisation and the contract partner punctually fulfils its payment obligations.
6.3: In the case of default of payment, we shall be entitled to secure the goods, whereby this does not cancel the obligations of the customer from the present contract, in particular for payment. If we make use of our retention of title and take back the goods, the credit for the goods returned on the basis of the retention of title shall be made taking into account a reasonable price reduction for use, wear and other circumstances, but at least 30% of the invoice value.
6.4: Insofar as the contracted goods owned by the customer, which are still under retention of title, are seized, CADstar must be informed immediately and the customer must do everything so that the contractual items are released to CADstar. The customer undertakes to notify CADstar of any access by third parties to goods in their possession without delay. The customer is obligated to notify third parties that choose to access or receive any contractual items from CADstar in writing that it is the property of CADstar. Any costs incurred by CADstar for the pursuit of property claims or interventions shall be borne by the customer.
The customer undertakes to inform us before registering for insolvency proceedings, so that we can take delivery of goods delivered under retention of title and in our ownership.
6.5: The customer is expressly prohibited from pledging contractual items delivered under retention of title or assigning them as collateral.
6.6: The customer is obligated to maintain and secure the contractual items in the proper condition during the period of retention of title.
