General terms and con­di­ti­ons – con­di­ti­ons of sa­le and de­li­very – of FOODSTAR GmbH (here­af­ter re­fer­red to as: “FOODSTAR”) – ef­fec­tive as of July 3rd, 2017

  1. Validity of the­se terms and con­di­ti­ons
    1. All FOODSTAR de­li­ve­ries and ser­vices will so­le­ly ta­ke place ac­cord­ing to the­se ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons. These are an in­te­gral part of all con­tracts on the of­fe­red de­li­ve­ries or ser­vices that FOODSTAR en­ters in­to with its con­trac­ting par­ty (here­af­ter re­fer­red to as: “custo­mer”). They al­so ap­p­ly to all fu­ture de­li­ve­ries, ser­vices or of­fers to the custo­mer, even if they are not se­pa­r­a­te­ly agreed upon de no­vo.
    2. Individual writ­ten agree­ments that de­via­te from the­se ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons ta­ke prio­ri­ty.
    3. Besides, so­le­ly the­se ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons ap­p­ly to the busi­ness re­la­ti­ons­hip bet­ween FOODSTAR and the custo­mer. Conditions of the custo­mer which op­po­se or de­via­te from the­se ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons are not re­co­gni­zed. These ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons al­so ap­p­ly if FOODSTAR un­re­ser­ved­ly car­ri­es out the de­li­very in awa­re­ness of op­po­sing or de­via­ting con­di­ti­ons of the custo­mer.
    4. If a frame­work agree­ment exists bet­ween the custo­mer and FOODSTAR, the­se ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons al­so ap­p­ly to the­se frame­work agree­ments as well as to the in­di­vi­du­al or­der. Insofar as the­se ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons re­fer to the con­tract or the con­tract for­ma­ti­on it is a re­fe­rence to the re­spec­tive in­di­vi­du­al or­der and its ac­cep­tan­ce, and not to the frame­work agree­ment.
    5. These ge­ne­ral terms and con­di­ti­ons ap­p­ly on­ly to con­trac­tors, le­gal per­sons un­der pu­blic law or spe­cial as­sets un­der pu­blic law ac­cord­ing to Section 310(1) BGB (German Civil Code).
  2. Contract for­ma­ti­on, writ­ten form
    1. FOODSTAR’s of­fers re­main non-ob­li­ga­to­ry and non-bin­ding un­til the con­tract con­clu­si­on has ta­ken place.
    2. Orders of the custo­mer are bin­ding on them. Unless any­thing el­se ari­ses from the or­ders in an in­di­vi­du­al ca­se, FOODSTAR has the right to ac­cept or­ders wi­t­hin two (2) ca­len­dar weeks af­ter re­ce­ipt. This ac­cep­tan­ce of the or­der will ta­ke place by an or­der con­fir­ma­ti­on or by de­li­very of the or­der to the custo­mer.
    3. A net mi­ni­mum purcha­se va­lue of EUR 500,- ap­p­lies to the custo­mer. FOODSTAR does not ac­cept any or­ders be­low this mi­ni­mum or­der va­lue from the custo­mer.
    4. Only writ­ten con­fir­ma­ti­on on the part of FOODSTAR is re­le­vant for or­ders and agree­ments, un­less the re­ci­pi­ent im­me­dia­te­ly dis­agrees in writ­ten form. This es­pe­ci­al­ly ap­p­lies to or­ders and agree­ments sta­ted ver­bal­ly or over the pho­ne. If no other writ­ten con­fir­ma­ti­on ta­kes place, the in­voice ser­ves as let­ter of con­fir­ma­ti­on.
    5. Any pos­si­ble chan­ges and/or ad­di­ti­ons to the con­tract re­qui­re writ­ten con­fir­ma­ti­on by FOODSTAR in or­der to ta­ke ef­fect. This al­so ap­p­lies to de­via­ti­ons from con­trac­tu­al re­qui­re­ments of the writ­ten form. No ver­bal col­la­te­ral agree­ments exist.
    6. Legally re­le­vant de­cla­ra­ti­ons or re­ports of the custo­mer af­ter con­tract con­clu­si­on (e.g., dead­lines, noti­ce of de­fects, noti­ces of re­pu­dia­ti­on of the con­tract, de­man­ds for re­duc­tion of the purcha­se pri­ce, or in­dem­ni­ty) are on­ly va­lid when they are sta­ted in writ­ten form.
  3. Delivery, date of de­li­very
    1. The pe­ri­ods and dates for de­li­ve­ries and ser­vices es­ta­blished by FOODSTAR al­ways ap­p­ly on­ly ap­pro­xi­mate­ly, un­less a set pe­ri­od or a set date has be­en ex­press­ly con­fir­med or agreed upon. If ship­ping has be­en agreed upon, the pe­ri­ods and dates of de­li­very re­fer to the mo­ment of han­do­ver to the ship­ping com­pa­ny, trans­port car­ri­er or other third par­ty com­mis­sio­ned with the de­li­very.
    2. FOODSTAR is en­t­it­led to par­ti­al de­li­very wi­t­hin re­a­son­ab­le extent.
    3. The sel­ler shall not be lia­ble for im­pos­si­bi­li­ty or de­lays of de­li­very, in­so­far as the­se have be­en cau­sed by force ma­jeu­re or other in­ci­dents not fo­re­see­ab­le at the time of con­tract con­clu­si­on (e.g., in­ter­rup­ti­ons of ope­ra­ti­ons of all kinds, dif­fi­cul­ties in the pro­cu­re­ment of ma­te­ri­als or en­er­gy, de­lays in tran­sit, strike, la­w­ful lock­outs, shor­ta­ge of la­bor, en­er­gy or raw ma­te­ri­als, dif­fi­cul­ties in the pro­cu­re­ment of ne­cessa­ry of­fi­ci­al per­mits, of­fi­ci­al me­a­su­res, or the mis­sing, in­cor­rect or non-time­ly de­li­very through sup­pliers), for which FOODSTAR is not re­spon­si­ble. In the ca­se that such in­ci­dents sub­stan­ti­al­ly ham­per the de­li­very or ser­vice or make them im­pos­si­ble and the hin­dran­ce is not on­ly of tem­pora­ry du­ra­ti­on, FOODSTAR is en­t­it­led to wi­th­draw from the con­tract. At the oc­cur­rence of hin­dran­ces of tem­pora­ry du­ra­ti­on the pe­ri­ods of de­li­very or ser­vice are ex­ten­ded or post­po­ned by the du­ra­ti­on of the hin­dran­ce pe­ri­od plus an ap­pro­pria­te star­ting pe­ri­od. If the ac­cep­tan­ce of the de­li­very or ser­vice due to the de­lay is not de­emed ac­cep­ta­ble by the custo­mer, the custo­mer can wi­th­draw from the con­tract through an im­me­dia­te writ­ten de­cla­ra­ti­on towards the sel­ler.
    4. If the custo­mer in­curs any da­ma­ge due to a de­lay­ed de­li­very for which FOODSTAR is re­spon­si­ble, the custo­mer can de­mand to be com­pen­sa­ted for it, which may amount to at most 3% of the va­lue of the af­fec­ted part of the to­tal de­li­very. This li­mi­ta­ti­on of lia­bi­li­ty does not ap­p­ly in the ca­se that the de­lay­ed de­li­very can be at­tri­bu­t­ed to in­tent or gross ne­gli­gence on the part of FOODSTAR, or that the de­lay­ed de­li­very for which FOODSTAR is re­spon­si­ble cau­ses in­ju­ry to li­fe, bo­dy or health. In the ca­se of de­lay­ed de­li­very, the custo­mer can wi­th­draw from the con­tract af­ter an ap­pro­pria­te grace pe­ri­od has be­en set if the ser­vice does not ta­ke place wi­t­hin the grace pe­ri­od.
    5. Further claims, es­pe­ci­al­ly claims for da­mages, are restric­ted ac­cord­ing to the re­gu­la­ti­ons in num­ber 8. (lia­bi­li­ty).
    6. FOODSTAR re­ser­ves the right to sta­te a ma­xi­mum amount to the custo­mer up un­til which de­li­ve­ries of or­ders which have not be­en paid in ad­van­ce or are paid upon de­li­very will be car­ri­ed out (“credit li­mit”). If or­ders lead to ex­cee­ding the credit li­mit even tem­pora­ri­ly, FOODSTAR will not ac­cept the or­ders ex­cee­ding the credit li­mit and will not car­ry out any de­li­ve­ries.
  4. Shipping
    1. The de­li­very will be ma­de car­ria­ge and insuran­ce paid (CIP ac­cord­ing to Incoterms 2010) to the de­sti­na­ti­on agreed upon in the or­der. Upon ex­press re­quest of the custo­mer, FOODSTAR will ar­ran­ge the de­li­very to a de­sti­na­ti­on dif­fe­rent from the one agreed upon in the or­der. In this ca­se, de­li­very ta­kes place at the customer’s risk and ex­pen­se. FOODSTAR is ob­li­ga­ted to com­ply with le­gal re­qui­re­ments for the trans­por­ta­ti­on.
    2. The custo­mer has to no­ti­fy the car­ri­er of los­ses or da­mages due to trans­por­ta­ti­on im­me­dia­te­ly and all me­a­su­res that pre­ser­ve the customer’s rights have to be ta­ken by the custo­mer im­me­dia­te­ly. This ap­p­lies in­de­pendent­ly of whe­ther it con­cerns a ship­ment at the ex­pen­se of FOODSTAR or upon spe­cial re­quest of the custo­mer. Losses or da­mages have to be no­ted on the de­li­very re­ce­ipt, which has to be han­ded to the car­ri­er. Furthermore, FOODSTAR al­so has to be no­ti­fied of los­ses or da­mages. A li­mi­ta­ti­on pe­ri­od of fi­ve (5) days af­ter de­li­very ap­p­lies. FOODSTAR has to be no­ti­fied of hid­den da­mages im­me­dia­te­ly upon dis­co­very.
  5. Prices and chan­ges in pri­ce
    1. For de­li­very car­ria­ge and insuran­ce paid (CIP ac­cord­ing to Incoterms 2010), the pri­ces con­tain the trans­port costs ac­cord­ing to num­ber 4.1 and al­ways in­clu­de glass and pa­cka­ging and the va­lue ad­ded tax re­spec­tively va­lid at the time of con­tract con­clu­si­on. For ship­ment to a dif­fe­rent de­sti­na­ti­on ac­cord­ing to num­ber 4.1 clau­se 2, or if a ship­ping me­thod dif­fe­rent from the one that is least ex­pen­si­ve to FOODSTAR is re­quested, FOODSTAR will char­ge the trans­port costs to the buy­er se­pa­r­a­te­ly.
    2. Unless fi­xed pri­ce agree­ments have be­en ma­de, the rights to make ap­pro­pria­te pri­ce chan­ges due to chan­ged sala­ry, ma­te­ri­al and dis­tri­bu­ti­on costs for de­li­ve­ries which ta­ke place 3 mon­ths or la­ter af­ter con­tract con­clu­si­on re­main re­ser­ved.
    3. FOODSTAR will char­ge a de­po­sit ac­cord­ing to Section 9 of the pa­cka­ging re­gu­la­ti­ons on dis­po­sable be­verage pa­cka­ging sub­ject to the pa­cka­ging re­gu­la­ti­ons. Returns of dis­po­sable be­verage pa­cka­ging char­ged with a de­po­sit ac­cord­ing to Section 6(1) of the pa­cka­ging re­gu­la­ti­ons will be com­pen­sa­ted ac­cord­ing to the gui­de­li­nes of the German Deposit Association (Deutsche Pfandgesellschaft; de­po­sit clea­ring across all le­vels of tra­de).
  6. Terms of payment, off­set­ting and right of re­ten­ti­on
    1. If not­hing el­se is agreed upon, payment has to be ma­de wi­t­hin 14 days upon re­ce­ipt of the in­voice wi­thout any de­duc­tions.
    2. If payment via di­rect de­bit has be­en agreed upon with the custo­mer, this will be pro­ces­sed via the SEPA busi­ness-to-busi­ness di­rect de­bit sche­me. The custo­mer is ob­li­ga­ted to aut­ho­ri­ze FOODSTAR to ir­re­vo­ca­bly wi­th­draw payments from their bank ac­count via SEPA busi­ness-to-busi­ness di­rect de­bi­ting. The di­rect de­bi­ting will usual­ly be an­noun­ced in ad­van­ce along with the in­voice (or via ano­t­her chan­nel of com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on agreed upon with the custo­mer) by no la­ter than 1 ca­len­dar day be­fo­re the due date of the di­rect de­bit. The custo­mer is ob­li­ga­ted to pro­vi­de suf­fi­ci­ent funds on the bank ac­count sta­ted in the SEPA di­rect de­bit man­da­te and to make su­re that the amounts due can be wi­th­drawn. This ob­li­ga­ti­on al­so ap­p­lies if in an in­di­vi­du­al ca­se, the custo­mer did not or not in due time re­cei­ve the ad­van­ce in­for­ma­ti­on. If a re­turn de­bit oc­curs de­spi­te a di­rect de­bit agree­ment ha­ving be­en ma­de and the custo­mer can be held re­spon­si­ble for the re­turn de­bit, the custo­mer is ob­li­ga­ted to com­pen­sa­te FOODSTAR for the re­sul­ting da­ma­ge.
    3. Even if a date of payment has be­en agreed upon, FOODSTAR can de­mand the im­me­dia­te payment of all claims and/or ba­se its de­li­ve­ries upon ad­van­ce payments, if a sub­stan­ti­al de­te­rio­ra­ti­on of the customer’s in­co­me or fi­nan­ci­al si­tua­ti­on has ta­ken place or such a de­te­rio­ra­ti­on can be ex­pec­ted in the fu­ture due to ob­jec­tive cir­cum­s­tan­ces. If the custo­mer is not ca­pa­ble of this, FOODSTAR has the right – po­ten­ti­al­ly af­ter set­ting a dead­line – to wi­th­draw from the con­tract.
    4. Number 6.3 al­so ap­p­lies if a credit li­mit has be­en agreed upon with the custo­mer due to a spe­cial agree­ment and this has not yet be­en used in full.
    5. In the ca­se of an agree­ment for payment de­fer­ral or payment in in­stall­ments, all claims against the custo­mer will be­co­me due im­me­dia­te­ly if the custo­mer fi­nal­ly re­fu­ses a payment or in the event of de­fault for a due in­stall­ment. This does not ap­p­ly if the de­faul­ted amount con­sti­tu­tes less than 10% of the out­stan­ding claims.
    6. Any off­set­ting with coun­ter­c­laims by the custo­mer as well as a right of re­ten­ti­on are ex­clu­ded, un­less it con­cerns un­dis­pu­ted claims or le­gal­ly de­ter­mi­ned claims of the custo­mer. This al­so ap­p­lies to the en­force­ment of claims for de­fects.
    7. If the custo­mer does not pay on ma­tu­ri­ty, in­te­rest of 5% p.a. has to be paid on the out­stan­ding amount star­ting upon the day of ma­tu­ri­ty; upon oc­cur­rence of the de­fault the custo­mer is ob­li­ga­ted to pay in­te­rest to FOODSTAR amoun­ting to 9 per­cen­ta­ge points above the re­spec­tive ba­se in­te­rest ra­te p.a.; the en­force­ment of fur­t­her da­mages in ca­se of ar­re­ars re­mains un­af­fec­ted. In the event of de­fault by the custo­mer, FOODSTAR can par­ti­cu­lar­ly de­mand a pro­por­ti­on of costs equal to EUR 3,- per payment re­min­der. This does not ap­p­ly to the first re­min­der. The custo­mer has the right to pro­vi­de evi­dence that no da­ma­ge has be­en cau­sed at all or is si­gni­fi­cant­ly lo­wer than this fi­xed ra­te.
  7. Quality and war­ran­ty
    1. Warranty on the part of FOODSTAR for goods being free from de­fects is in ac­cord­ance with the le­gal pro­vi­si­ons un­less other­wi­se sta­ted in the fol­lo­wing.
    2. No war­ran­ty ap­p­lies in the event of im­pro­per sto­ra­ge by the custo­mer. The goods are to be pro­tec­ted from the sun and ex­tre­me tem­pe­ra­tures. Assured qua­li­ties are ex­press­ly de­scri­bed as such in the con­tract. Verbal in­for­ma­ti­on as well as in­for­ma­ti­on in FOODSTAR do­cu­ments do not con­tain any as­suran­ces. Possible pu­blic ad­ver­ti­sing statements/product in­for­ma­ti­on by third par­ties or by FOODSTAR are not sub­ject of the con­trac­tu­al pro­duct spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on, un­less FOODSTAR en­ters in­to a re­spec­tive agree­ment with the custo­mer.
    3. FOODSTAR gua­ran­tees that the de­li­ve­r­ed goods ful­fill the le­gal re­qui­re­ments va­lid at the time of de­li­very ac­cord­ing to the le­gal pro­vi­si­ons of the Federal Republic of Germany.
    4. Warranty claims against FOODSTAR will ex­pi­re by li­mi­ta­ti­on in one ye­ar fol­lo­wing the trans­fer of risk.
    5. The custo­mer is ob­li­ga­ted to im­me­dia­te­ly ex­ami­ne the de­li­ve­r­ed goods – in the event of par­ti­al de­li­ve­ries the al­re­ady de­li­ve­r­ed por­ti­on of the goods – du­ti­ful­ly and pro­per­ly at his own ex­pen­se and to no­ti­fy FOODSTAR in writ­ten form about po­ten­ti­al de­fects or de­li­ve­ries of goods other than tho­se or­de­red and/or in­com­ple­te de­li­ve­ries. For the noti­ce of ob­vious de­fects or in­suf­fi­ci­ent quan­ti­ties, a li­mi­ta­ti­on pe­ri­od of fi­ve (5) days upon de­li­very ap­p­lies. After its ex­pi­ry, the com­mer­ci­al or en­tre­pre­neu­ri­al custo­mer does not have the right to any claims for ob­vious de­fects or in­suf­fi­ci­ent quan­ti­ties. Hidden de­fects are to be re­por­ted im­me­dia­te­ly af­ter their dis­co­very.
    6. Warranty claims of the custo­mer are ge­ne­ral­ly li­mi­ted to a right for re­work or re­pla­ce­ment de­li­ve­ries. FOODSTAR has the right of choice for this pur­po­se. If the re­work at­tempts or the re­pla­ce­ment de­li­very fails, the custo­mer has the right to eit­her wi­th­draw from the con­tract on the af­fec­ted de­li­very or to an ap­pro­pria­te re­duc­tion of the purcha­se pri­ce (re­duc­tion).
    7. Further claims, es­pe­ci­al­ly in­dem­ni­ty claims, are li­mi­ted ac­cord­ing to the re­gu­la­ti­ons in num­ber 8 (lia­bi­li­ty).
  8. Liability
    1. Liability by FOODSTAR for da­mages of any kind shall be ex­clu­ded. This ex­clu­si­on does not ap­p­ly to da­mages which have be­en cau­sed by FOODSTAR de­li­be­r­a­te­ly or in a gross­ly ne­gli­gent man­ner; in ca­ses of simp­le ne­gli­gence the ex­clu­si­on does not ap­p­ly to da­mages that are ba­sed on an in­ju­ry to li­fe, bo­dy or health, as well as for da­mages ba­sed on a bre­ach of es­sen­ti­al con­trac­tu­al ob­li­ga­ti­ons by FOODSTAR. Essential con­trac­tu­al ob­li­ga­ti­ons are ob­li­ga­ti­ons who­se ful­fill­ment en­ab­les the pro­per im­ple­men­ta­ti­on of the con­tract in the first place and the custo­mer re­gu­lar­ly trusts upon and may trust upon the com­pli­an­ce with the­se ob­li­ga­ti­ons.
    2. In ca­ses of ne­gli­gent bre­aches of es­sen­ti­al con­trac­tu­al ob­li­ga­ti­ons, the lia­bi­li­ty of FOODSTAR – ex­clu­ding da­mages to li­fe, bo­dy or health – is li­mi­ted to the con­trac­tual­ly an­ti­ci­pa­ted da­ma­ge fo­re­see­ab­le to FOODSTAR upon con­tract con­clu­si­on or com­mis­si­on of the bre­ach of du­ty.
    3. All po­ten­ti­al in­dem­ni­ty claims ba­sed on simp­le ne­gli­gence on the part of FOODSTAR ex­pi­re by li­mi­ta­ti­on in one ye­ar fol­lo­wing the be­gin­ning of the sta­tu­to­ry li­mi­ta­ti­on pe­ri­od. The li­mi­ta­ti­ons do not ap­p­ly if li­fe, bo­dy or health are da­ma­ged due to the fault of FOODSTAR.
    4. The above­men­tio­ned dis­c­lai­mers and li­mi­ta­ti­ons of lia­bi­li­ty wi­t­hin the num­bers 8.1 to 8.3 al­so ap­p­ly to the lia­bi­li­ty of FOODSTAR for its bo­dies, staff and vi­ca­rious agents as well as to the per­so­nal lia­bi­li­ty of FOODSTAR’s bo­dies, staff and vi­ca­rious agents.
    5. The above­men­tio­ned dis­c­lai­mers and li­mi­ta­ti­ons of lia­bi­li­ty wi­t­hin the num­bers 8.1 to 8.3 do not ap­p­ly to the lia­bi­li­ty of FOODSTAR for gua­ran­teed qua­li­ty cha­rac­te­ris­tics and to the lia­bi­li­ty of FOODSTAR ac­cord­ing to the Product Liability Act.
  9. Crisis ma­nage­ment
    1. If the custo­mer re­cei­ves in­for­ma­ti­on about an in­ci­dent, a con­su­mer com­p­laint or com­p­laints by re­gu­la­to­ry aut­ho­ri­ties which cau­se the ju­s­ti­fied sus­pi­ci­on that the pro­ducts de­li­ve­r­ed by FOODSTAR are un­safe (Art. 14 VO 178/2002/EG), the custo­mer will no­ti­fy FOODSTAR im­me­dia­te­ly.
    2. The custo­mer will not ta­ke any me­a­su­res towards con­su­mers or the ge­ne­ral pu­blic or make com­mit­ments towards the re­gu­la­to­ry aut­ho­ri­ties (e.g., pro­duct warnings or re­calls), wi­thout ha­ving con­sul­ted FOODSTAR be­fore­hand and ha­ving ob­tai­ned their con­sent, un­less dan­ger is im­mi­nent.
  10. Reservation of pro­prie­ta­ry rights
    1. The ex­ten­ded re­ser­va­ti­on of pro­prie­ta­ry rights her­ein agreed upon ser­ves the pur­po­se of pro­tec­ting all pre­sent and fu­ture claims of FOODSTAR ari­sing from the busi­ness re­la­ti­ons­hip with the custo­mer as well as any po­ten­ti­al cur­rent ac­count ba­lan­ce claims (here­af­ter re­fer­red to as: se­cu­red claims).
    2. The goods de­li­ve­r­ed by FOODSTAR, in­clu­ding pled­ged goods (here­af­ter re­fer­red to as: re­ser­ved goods) will re­main pro­per­ty of FOODSTAR un­til the payment in full of all se­cu­red claims.
    3. The custo­mer stores the re­ser­ved goods for FOODSTAR free of char­ge with the ca­re of a pru­dent busi­ness­per­son. They have to tre­at the goods with ca­re and insu­re them ade­qua­te­ly and up to the ori­gi­nal va­lue against fire, wa­ter and theft da­mages at their own ex­pen­se.
    4. The custo­mer does not have the right to put the re­ser­ved goods in pledge or to trans­fer them as a se­cu­ri­ty. In the event of sei­zu­re of the re­ser­ved goods through third par­ties or of other ac­cess through third par­ties, the custo­mer has to clear­ly in­di­ca­te the pro­per­ty of FOODSTAR and no­ti­fy FOODSTAR im­me­dia­te­ly in writ­ten form, so that FOODSTAR can pur­sue its pro­per­ty rights. Insofar as the third par­ty can­not com­pen­sa­te FOODSTAR for the ju­di­ci­al and ex­tra­ju­di­ci­al ex­pen­ses ari­sing from this con­text, the custo­mer is to be lia­ble.
    5. The custo­mer has the right to re­sell the re­ser­ved goods wi­t­hin the pro­per cour­se of busi­ness.
    6. As a pre­cau­ti­on, the custo­mer al­re­ady as­signs to FOODSTAR – pro­por­tio­nal­ly in ca­se of co-ow­nership of FOODSTAR of the re­ser­ved goods ac­cord­ing to the sha­re of co-ow­nership – the payment claims of the custo­mer against their buy­ers ari­sing from re­sel­ling the re­ser­ved goods as well as the claims of the custo­mer re­gar­ding the re­ser­ved goods that ari­se against their buy­ers or third par­ties due to other le­gal grounds (es­pe­ci­al­ly claims due to un­la­w­ful ac­tion and claims to insuran­ce be­ne­fits), in­clu­ding all cur­rent ac­count ba­lan­ce claims (ex­ten­ded re­ser­va­ti­on of pro­prie­ta­ry rights). FOODSTAR her­e­by ac­cepts the­se as­sign­ments.
    7. FOODSTAR re­vo­ca­bly aut­ho­ri­zes the custo­mer to collect the claims as­si­gned to FOODSTAR on their own be­half for FOODSTAR. The right of FOODSTAR to collect the­se claims its­elf re­mains un­af­fec­ted by this. However, FOODSTAR will not collect the­se claims its­elf and will not re­vo­ke the di­rect de­bit aut­ho­ri­za­ti­on as long as the custo­mer pro­per­ly ful­fills their payment ob­li­ga­ti­ons towards FOODSTAR (and es­pe­ci­al­ly does not de­fault on payments), as long as no ap­p­li­ca­ti­on for in­sol­vency pro­ce­du­res on the customer’s as­sets has be­en fi­led and as long as no in­suf­fi­ci­ent per­for­mance abi­li­ty (Section 321(1) Sentence 1 German Civil Code) on the customer’s part exists. If one of the above­men­tio­ned ca­ses oc­curs, FOODSTAR can re­quest from the custo­mer to de­cla­re the as­si­gned claims and the re­spec­tive debtors to FOODSTAR, to no­ti­fy the re­spec­tive debtors about the as­sign­ment of claims (which may al­so be do­ne by FOODSTAR its­elf at its own dis­cre­ti­on), and to de­li­ver all do­cu­ments to FOODSTAR and to pro­vi­de all de­tails which FOODSTAR re­qui­res for the en­force­ment of the claims. Number 10.4 re­spec­tively ap­p­lies to the as­si­gned claims.
    8. Upon de­mand of the custo­mer, FOODSTAR is ob­li­ga­ted to re­lease the re­ser­ved goods and the ar­ti­cles and claims that re­place them, in­so­far as their esti­ma­ted va­lue ex­ceeds the amount of the se­cu­red claims by mo­re than 50%. The selec­tion of items to be re­leased is to be ma­de by FOODSTAR.
    9. If FOODSTAR wi­th­draws from the con­tract ac­cord­ing to the le­gal pro­vi­si­ons due to be­ha­vi­or of the custo­mer con­tra­ry to the con­tract – es­pe­ci­al­ly due to their de­fault in payment – (en­force­ment event), FOODSTAR has the right to de­mand re­lease of the re­ser­ved goods from the custo­mer. The de­mand of re­lease, at the la­test, al­so con­sti­tu­tes the de­cla­ra­ti­on of wi­th­dra­wal by FOODSTAR. The trans­port costs ari­sing from the re­turn are to be bor­ne by the custo­mer. A po­ten­ti­al sei­zu­re of the re­ser­ved goods through FOODSTAR al­so con­sti­tu­tes a de­cla­ra­ti­on of wi­th­dra­wal.
  11. Place of ful­fill­ment, place of ju­ris­dic­tion, ap­p­li­ca­ble law
    1. Place of ful­fill­ment for payment is Krefeld.
    2. With custo­mers who are re­gis­te­red tra­ders, le­gal per­sons un­der pu­blic law or spe­cial as­sets un­der pu­blic law or for whom the­re is no place of ge­ne­ral ju­ris­dic­tion in the Federal Republic of Germany, Krefeld as ex­clu­si­ve place of ju­ris­dic­tion is agreed upon. Mandatory le­gal pro­vi­si­ons on ex­clu­si­ve pla­ces of ju­ris­dic­tion re­main un­af­fec­ted by this re­gu­la­ti­on.
    3. German law ap­p­lies ex­clu­si­ve­ly, ex­clu­ding uni­fied in­ter­na­tio­nal law, es­pe­ci­al­ly ex­clu­ding UN sa­le of goods law (CISG).
  12. Notice due to the Data Protection Act
    1. The custo­mer ta­kes no­te of the fact that FOODSTAR saves da­ta re­gar­ding the con­trac­tu­al re­la­ti­ons­hip ac­cord­ing to Section 28 of the Federal Data Protection Act for the pur­po­se of da­ta pro­ces­sing, and re­ser­ves the right to trans­fer such da­ta to third par­ties as far as it ne­cessa­ry for the ful­fill­ment of the con­tract.
