    3. Also in case Seller at the request of or in consultation with Buyer transports or arranges the transport of Goods to a delivery location other than Seller’s premises as communicated, Buyer will bear all risk of risk of loss, damages or devaluation of the Goods which occur during such transport.
    4. If at the time the Agreement is concluded, the Goods are in the custody of a third party, the conclusion of the Agreement shall be considered to imply a declaration of transfer of possession of the Goods, and delivery of the Goods shall take place through notification by Seller to the third party of the transfer of the possession of the Goods.
    5. If at the time the Agreement is concluded, the Goods are in the custody of a third party, whether the Goods have been delivered or not, the risk in the Goods shall pass to the Buyer upon (i) Seller’s notification of transfer of possession referred to in clause 5.4 of these Terms and Conditions; or (ii) Seller’s notification to the Buyer that the Goods are ready for collection at the premises of the third party.
    6. During delivery of the Goods/performance of the Services in parts, each phase is considered as a separate transaction.

Storage costs amount to €75.00 exclusive of VAT per day per Good/object.

    15. Seller shall not be required to deliver to Buyer more or other car documents related to the sold Goods (such as title documents, registration documents and certificates of conformity) than Seller has received from its supplier. Seller’s books and records serve as full evidence towards the receipt by Seller of said car documents.

The interest on the amount due and payable shall be calculated as from the day Buyer is in default until the moment it has paid the amount in full.
    8. In case of overdue payment, all Buyer’s payment obligations shall become immediately due and payable, irrespective of whether Seller has already invoiced in the matter.

    2. Buyer shall not be authorized to dispose of, pledge, encumber or modify in any way the Goods falling under the retention of title.

    4. Buyer is obliged to insure the Goods delivered subject to retention of title and to keep those Goods insured under comprehensive cover (WA + volledig casco) and make this insurance policy available to Seller for inspection by it on first demand.

  12. Retention and Right of Pledge
    1. As security for the payment of all claims Seller has or may have on Buyer, on any ground whatsoever, and towards whomever who may require the release thereof, Seller can exercise a right of retention (retentierecht) and Seller has been granted a right of pledge (pandrecht) – by way of these General Terms becoming applicable between Seller and Buyer – in respect of (i) all Buyer’s or third parties Goods, documents, monies and other goods that Seller holds or will acquire, and/or (ii) all Goods, documents, monies or other goods Seller owes or will owe to Buyer.
    2. Seller may exercise its right of retention and right of pledge if and when Buyer (i) is declared bankrupt (failliet verklaard wordt) or Seller has good grounds to believe that Buyer will be declared bankrupt, (ii) requests for a suspension of payment (surseance van betaling), (iii) otherwise loses or will lose free disposal (vrije beschikking) of its assets (vermogen), (iv) offers an arrangement (akkoord) to its creditors, (v) is overdue with payment on one or more invoices, or for any other reason giving Seller the right to exercise its right of retention and right of pledge.
    3.

    4. Seller has the right to and will consider Buyer, and any other person providing goods to Seller on behalf of Buyer for the execution of works, as a (by Buyer appointed) person having the authority (beschikkingsbevoegde) to vest a right of pledge on such goods.

Upon default (verzuim) of Buyer with the performance of its obligations for which the aforementioned right of pledge has been vested, Seller has the right of immediate foreclosure (parate executie) with respect to all pledged assets.

    6. Seller will, after payment of execution costs, deduct from the net proceeds of the sale an amount equal to its secured claim to be followed by payment of any surplus to Buyer. This unless other persons having limited rights over (beperkt gerechtigden) or persons having attached (beslagleggers) the pledged assets or any revenues thereof exist. In those cases Seller will act in accordance with Section 490b of the Dutch Act on Civil Procedure (Wetboek van Burgerlijke Rechtsvordering).
  13. Judicial and extra judicial costs

    3. If Seller demonstrates that he has incurred higher expenses, which were necessary in reason, said expenses shall also qualify for reimbursement.
    4. Buyer shall owe 1% interest per month over the collection charges made by Seller.
  14. Suspension and Dissolution
    1. Buyer waives all rights to dissolution of the Agreement pursuant to Section 6:265 et seq. of the Dutch Civil Code or other statutory provisions, unless otherwise agreed between the parties in the Agreement. This provision does not apply to Agreements between Seller and a consumer as Buyer.
    2. Seller shall be authorized to suspend (opschorten) the fulfilment of the obligations under the Agreement or to dissolve (ontbinden) the Agreement, without the intervention of a court (buitengerechtelijk), without notice of default (ingebrekestelling) and without any obligation of Seller to pay any compensation to Buyer, in the event that:
      • Buyer does not fulfil or does not fully fulfil its obligations resulting from the Agreement;
      • after the Agreement has been concluded, Seller learns of circumstances giving good ground to fear that Buyer will not fulfil his obligations. If good ground exists to fear that Buyer will only partially or improperly fulfil his obligations, suspension shall only be allowed in so far the shortcoming justifies such action;
      • Seller finds itself in a situation in which fulfilment of the order cannot reasonably be demanded from it;
      • Buyer disposes of (vervreemdt) its enterprise or loses the direct control over it;
      • Buyer requests the suspension of payments (surseance van betaling) or if such is granted, a petition for bankruptcy (faillissement) of Buyer is submitted or Buyer is declared bankrupt, or attachment is placed (beslag wordt gelegd) on a material part of Buyer’s assets; or
      • Buyer does not or insufficiently provide to Seller the security requested on or around execution of the Agreement to secure the proper fulfilment by Buyer of its obligations resulting from the Agreement. Seller’s authorization to suspend shall lapse upon the vesting of aforementioned security, unless said fulfilment has been unreasonably delayed because of it.
    3. Seller shall furthermore be authorized to dissolve (ontbinden) the Agreement (or have the Agreement dissolved) prematurely, without intervention of a court of justice and without any obligation of Seller to pay any compensation to Buyer, if:
      • Buyer is in default (in verzuim) with regard to payment or, in some other way, imputably defaults (schiet tekort) with regard to the fulfilment of its obligations, including obligations of previous agreements; or
      • circumstances arise of such nature that fulfilment by Seller of the obligations under the Agreement becomes impossible or can no longer reasonably be expected from Seller.
    4. Seller shall furthermore be authorized to dissolve (ontbinden) the Agreement (or have the Agreement dissolved) prematurely, without intervention of a court of justice and without any obligation of Seller to pay any compensation to Buyer, if Seller’s supplier is not able to deliver the Goods within the time limit as communicated by such supplier to Seller.

Buyer is obliged to indemnify Seller for the costs associated with the dissolution of the Agreement. If Seller suspends (opschort) fulfilment of his obligations, he shall retain his rights under the law and the Agreement. Advance payments made by Buyer to Seller shall not be reimbursed by Seller to Buyer in case of dissolution of the Agreement.
    6. If Buyer has failed imputably (toerekenbaar tekort is geschoten) in the observance of his obligations vis-à-vis Seller and the Agreement has been dissolved, Buyer shall forfeit a fine, due on demand to Seller without notification or legal intervention of fifteen (15) percent of the agreed price of the Goods or Services. This is without prejudice to the right of Seller to claim full compensation and reimbursement of costs of recourse (including the costs as meant in clause 13).
    7. Rights of a buyer ensuing from Book 7 Dutch Civil Code, including the right of conformity of the goods with the Agreement, cannot be invoked by a Buyer acting in the practice of an occupation or the operation of a business (koper die handelt in de uitoefening van een beroep of bedrijf).
  15. E-commerce and distance selling
    1. In case Seller and Buyer, being a natural person not acting in the practice of an occupation or the operation of a business, enter into an Agreement to which the Dutch law on distance selling is applicable and the Goods appear to be non-complying with specifications indicated by the Buyer, Buyer has the right to within fourteen (14) days upon receipt of the Goods dissolve (ontbinden) the Agreement (i.e. the right of cancellation (herroepingsrecht)) without a reason being required and without prejudice to these Terms and Conditions.
    2. Dissolution of the Agreement must be done in writing and within the aforementioned fourteen (14) day period.
    3. After dissolution of the Agreement the Goods shall be returned within fourteen (14) days thereof by the Buyer to the Seller for the risk and the account (rekening en risico) of Buyer.
    4. Seller shall be entitled to charge Buyer for any loss in value of the Goods and to set-off the amount of such loss with the purchase price paid by Buyer to Seller.

Within fourteen (14) days after Buyer having exercised its cancellation right, Seller will repay the purchase price (decreased by an amount equal to the loss referred to in clause 15.4) to Buyer if the Goods have been returned to Seller timely and in good condition (both to be determined by the Seller at its sole discretion).
  16. Liability and Indemnity
    1. Seller shall not be liable for indirect damage (indirecte schade), including but not limited to consequential loss (gevolgschade), business interruption loss (bedrijfsschade), loss relating to alternative transport or rent or lease costs (kosten voor vervangend vervoer of huur- en leasekosten), damage to goods of third parties (schade aan goederen van derden), loss of profit (gederfde winst) and loss due to delays (vertragingsschade) and personal or immaterial damages (persoonlijke of immateriële schade).

    3. The exclusion of liability and limitation of liability set out in clauses 16.1 and 16.2 shall not apply in the event that Buyer proves that the damage was caused by intentional act or willful recklessness (opzet of bewuste roekeloosheid) of Seller’s management.
  17. Force Majeure
    1. Seller shall not be held to fulfil any of its obligations if it is hindered to do so due to a circumstance through no fault of his own (niet te wijten is aan zijn schuld) and which cannot be attributed to him by virtue of law, a legal act or generally accepted practice.
    2. In addition to the provisions of the law and the case law in this respect, force majeure shall in these Terms and Conditions furthermore be understood to be any external circumstance, be it envisaged or not, on which Seller cannot have any influence but which prevents Seller from fulfilling its obligations.
    3. Seller shall also be entitled to invoke force majeure if the circumstance rendering (further) fulfilment of the obligation(s) impossible, commences after the point in time on which Seller should have fulfilled his obligation.

If this period lasts for more than two months, either of the parties shall be entitled to dissolve the Agreement without any obligation to pay the opposite party damages.
    5. Insofar as Seller has already partially fulfilled his obligations resulting from the Agreement at the moment the circumstance of force majeure commenced or shall be able to fulfil them and insofar as separate value can be attributed to the part already fulfilled or still to be fulfilled respectively, Seller shall be entitled to invoice the part already fulfilled or still to be fulfilled respectively.
