The customer shall pay for any additional costs due to customer’s special shipping requests such as express shipments, special delivery, express or special means of transport. Special requests concerning the type of shipment and route must be announced in a timely fashion. The obligation to deliver is satisfied when the goods have left Cloeren GmbH’s factory or Cloeren GmbH has reported that it is ready to ship.

In addition, the customer is responsible for the payment of all kinds of taxes, dues, fees, and duty.
4. Payment Terms
Cloeren GmbH’s invoices must be paid net 30 days from the date of the invoice. If the payment is received late, then Cloeren GmbH is entitled to charge late interest in the amount of the applicable bank rate of interest. The customer is not entitled to offset any warranty or damage claims against the customer’s obligation to pay or the customer cannot withhold performance for this reason, unless Cloeren GmbH has provided its express consent in exact numbers and in writing. Promissory notes are accepted only, if Cloeren GmbH provided its written consent. The customer is responsible for any fees. Promissory notes and checks are accepted for payment only. If the customer does not fulfil the customer’s obligation to pay Cloeren GmbH on one order, then Cloeren GmbH is entitled to render all receivables due and payable immediately, even if other payment terms had been agreed upon. Moreover, this shall apply to any promissory notes payable. Whenever the payments are in arrears, any payments made are always applied to the oldest invoices due.

Any items that are returned to Cloeren GmbH must have Cloeren GmbH’s prior written consent. Cloeren GmbH shall not be liable for any delivered items or parts thereof, which the purchaser or a third party has modified or repaired. Cloeren GmbH replaces or corrects any defects if deliveries were wrong or defective. If it cannot replace the item or rectify the defect, the customer can either ask for a reduction in price or rescind the contract. Any defects caused by normal wear and tear, improper storage, and operation, excessive wear and improper handling by the customer or any third party are not covered under the warranty.

7. Retention of Title

7.2 The customer must obtain Cloeren GmbH’s express written consent for any sale, disposal, or processing of the goods delivered by Cloeren GmbH under the provision of title retention. In this case, the customer already assigns today to Cloeren GmbH any claims the customer has toward the purchaser or third party due to such sale. This is irrespective whether those retained goods are sold following further processing or modification. Until Cloeren GmbH revokes its right, the customer is entitled to collect the receivables assigned to Cloeren GmbH. Cloeren GmbH agrees not to collect these receivables as long as the customer fulfils its payment obligation in an orderly fashion. Otherwise, the customer is not entitled to pledge, to assign as collateral, or dispose of the items delivered under the retention of ownership.
7.3 Cloeren GmbH agrees to release any securities to which it is entitled upon the customer’s request, if its value exceeds 20% (twenty percent) of Cloeren GmbH’s total invoice to be secured toward the customer.
