9.2 In the case of the connection or mixing of the goods delivered under retention of title with an item belonging to the buyer or a third party, GFR shall acquire, in place of the buyer or the third party, the proportional co-ownership of the new item, in proportion to the purchase price of the goods delivered under retention of title to the value of the new thing.

GFR is entitled to proportional co-ownership of the new item in the ratio of the purchase price of the treated or processed item to the value of the new item.

9.4 The buyer is authorized to resell the goods delivered under reservation of title in the ordinary course of business. He hereby assigns to GFR the first-rate part of his claims from justified and unjustified resale, which corresponds to the invoice price (including VAT) of the goods delivered by GFR. The names and addresses of the customers as well as the amount of the respective claim are to be communicated to GFR at the first request. The buyer is authorized to collect the claims assigned to GFR as long as he duly fulfills his payment obligations to GFR and GFR does not revoke this authorization for any other reason. GFR accepts the advance assignments regulated in this provision.

9.5 Until the goods delivered subject to retention of title have been properly used or the new item created through connection, treatment or processing, the buyer must keep them spatially separated from other items. He bears all costs and expenses necessary for the maintenance during this time and is liable to GFR for any deterioration. The goods must be adequately insured against damage, loss and destruction. At the request of GFR, the buyer must provide proof of insurance cover.

9.6 Any pledging or assignment by way of security of the purchased goods or the new item is not permitted. Seizures or other impairments of GFR's property by third parties are to be reported by the buyer immediately and to be averted using suitable means. If GFR has reason to uphold the rights to the delivered goods by filing a third party action for objection in accordance with Section 771 of the German Code of Civil Procedure, the buyer is liable for the judicial and extrajudicial costs incurred as a result if the respondent is unable to reimburse them.

9.7 In the event of breach of contract by the buyer, in particular in the event of default in payment, GFR is entitled to withdraw from the contract and take back the goods delivered.

9.8 GFR undertakes to release any existing securities at the buyer's request to the extent that the realizable value of these securities exceeds the claim to be secured by more than 20%; the selection of which securities are released in each individual case is made by GFR.

12.2 In relation to customers who do not belong to the group of customers named in Clause 12.1, the places of jurisdiction permitted by law apply without restriction.
