4. Any other conditions may be agreed only through a written mutually confirmed contract or agreement. Any derogating written arrangements of the Parties shall prevail over the provisions of these GTC; otherwise these GTC shall apply to the full extent.
5. The exact date of delivery of goods shall always be determined in an individual contract and on the basis of agreement of the Parties. For the purposes of these GTC, it is expressly stipulated that a contract shall be deemed concluded also upon confirmation of an order without reservation; the contract is concluded at the time when Compo Tech confirms the order.
6. The Buyer shall be obliged to pay the purchase price for the delivered products (goods) on the basis of a tax document/invoice within the maturity period specified in the tax document. The purchase price is paid upon crediting of the payment into the Seller’s account or collection of the payment from the Buyer in cash.
7. To ensure proper identification of the payment by the Seller, the Buyer shall be obliged, in making a payment by wire transfer, to indicate accurately all the data required for the payment by the Seller.
8. In case of delay with payment of the purchase price for a delivered product (goods), the Seller shall be entitled to request that the Buyer pay a contractual penalty of 0.2% of the purchase price of the goods for each day of delay.
9. In case of the Buyer’s delay with payment of any tax documents/invoices or other pecuniary liabilities towards the Seller, the Seller reserves the right to suspend deliveries of other products to the Buyer until due payment of all outstanding tax documents/invoices or liabilities which have become payable. This suspension of deliveries shall not cause any delay on the Seller’s part.
10. The Seller and the Buyer have expressly agreed that until payment of goods in full:
(a) the goods covered by the contract shall remain the ownership of CompoTech and the Buyer shall therefore acquire ownership of the goods only upon payment of the purchase price into the Seller’s account in full. However, the risk of damage to the goods shall pass to the Buyer upon acceptance of the goods from the Seller or, if the Buyer fails to accept the goods from the Seller in time, the risk of damage shall pass to the Buyer at the time when the Seller allows him to dispose of the goods. If, based on agreement of the parties, the Seller is obliged to deliver the goods to a carrier at a certain location for transportation of the goods to the Buyer, the risk of damage to the goods shall pass to the Buyer upon its handing over to the carrier at the specified location. If the parties have agreed that the Seller is obliged to dispatch goods but the Seller is not obliged to hand over the goods at a specified location, the risk of damage shall pass to the Buyer upon handing over of the goods to the first carrier for transportation to the place of destination. The term ‘carrier’ means, without limitation, a legal or natural person carrying out business in the area of transportation of goods and logistics.
(b) CompoTech may at any time withdraw delivered goods from the Buyer’s possession if the purchase price has not been not paid by the Buyer to CompoTech within the maturity period; the Buyer shall be obliged to provide the Seller with co-operation in the withdrawal of the delivered goods, in particular to allow the Seller’s free access to premises, buildings and land where the goods are stored. Furthermore, the Buyer shall be obliged to take care of delivered goods of which he has not yet acquired ownership in such a way as to prevent devaluation, damage, loss, destruction, theft or any other decrease in the value of the goods.
(c) in carrying out its business, the Buyer shall be entitled to sell the goods on the account of CompoTech (however, no guarantees, conditions or representations provided or made by the Buyer or any third party shall be binding upon CompoTech and the Buyer shall hold CompoTech harmless in respect of them towards any third persons who are in contractual relationships with the Buyer) and to assign, without mentioning the rights of CompoTech, legally valid ownership of the goods to a customer of CompoTech who is a buyer in good faith, for consideration. This paragraph provides for the only exception where the Buyer is entitled to transfer ownership title to a third person notwithstanding the fact that the purchase price for the delivered goods has not yet been paid and the buyer has therefore not yet become the owner of the relevant goods. If such a sale is the case, the Buyer shall have a fiduciary obligation towards CompoTech to provide it with an account for the proceeds from the sale; however, the Buyer may retain any proceeds in excess of a due amount under the present contract or any other contract on sale between them, and CompoTech shall further be entitled to collect the Buyer’s price directly from the Buyer’s customer up to the outstanding amount; if CompoTech uses this right, it shall provide the Buyer with an account for the aforementioned proceeds in excess of the outstanding amount, after deduction of the costs incurred by CompoTech in connection with such collection.
(d) if the Buyer includes such goods in other products (by adding his own or other parties’ goods) or uses them as material for other products (whether adding other goods or not), the ownership of such products or any other products involved in the inclusion or use shall be deemed ipso facto transferred to CompoTech and the Buyer, as its depositor, shall duly deposit them for CompoTech free of charge; in case of the inclusion or use as contemplated in this subparagraph, the provisions of par. 5 (b) to (c) above shall apply to other products mutatis mutandis.

The specification of a purpose in the contract or an order serves for information purposes only.
13. The Buyer shall be obliged to inspect delivered goods immediately or immediately provide for their inspection depending on the circumstances after their acceptance. The Buyer shall be obliged to notify the Seller of obvious defects to the goods in writing not later than five (5) days from acceptance of the products.
