(2) The goods remain the property of the seller. Processing or transformation shall always be carried out for the seller as manufacturer, but without any obligation for him. If the (co-)ownership of the Seller expires due to combination, it is already agreed now that the (co-)ownership of the Buyer in the uniform item shall pass to the Seller in proportion to the value (invoice value).

(3) If the Purchaser is in default, the Seller shall be entitled to charge interest at a rate of 8 percentage points above the base interest rate as liquidated damages from the relevant date. They shall be set at a lower amount if the Purchaser proves a lower burden; proof of higher damage by the Seller shall be admissible. (4) If the Seller becomes aware of circumstances that call into question the creditworthiness of the Buyer, in particular if the Buyer does not honor a check or stops making payments, or if the Seller becomes aware of other circumstances that call into question the creditworthiness of the Buyer, the Seller shall be entitled to call due the entire remaining debt, even if the Seller has accepted checks.
