IX. Return of devices

1. Returned devices will only be accepted in payment under the seller's applicable terms and conditions.

The customer releases Kronen Küchengeräte GmbH from all obligations under Section 10, Paragraph 2 of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) - in particular from the manufacturer's obligation to take back the product and all related third-party claims.

If delivered devices are passed on to third parties, the customer is obliged to contractually oblige them to dispose of the devices properly after the end of use in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the devices are passed on again, the third parties must be contractually obliged to impose a corresponding further obligation on the recipients of the devices.

Violation of the specifications in Section 3 obliges the customer to take back the devices in accordance with Section 1 and to dispose of them in accordance with the statutory provisions. Kronen Küchengeräte GmbH is to be released from any claims by third parties.

Any deviating agreement on the return and disposal of old electrical appliances by Kronen Küchengeräte GmbH must be in writing.

X. Retention of title

1. All delivered goods and the proceeds from the resale remain the property of the seller until all claims of the seller against the buyer have been paid in full. The buyer thus assigns his claims from the resale of the goods to the seller until all claims from the purchase contract have been fulfilled.

2. Insofar as the validity of the retention of title in the country of destination is linked to special requirements or special formal requirements, the buyer must ensure that they are fulfilled.

3. The buyer may neither pledge the delivery item nor assign it as security prior to the transfer of ownership. In the event of attachments, confiscation or other dispositions by third parties, the buyer must notify us immediately.

4. If the buyer behaves in breach of contract, in particular in the event of default in payment, we are entitled to take back the goods after a reminder. The buyer is obliged to surrender. Neither the assertion of the retention of title nor the pledging of the delivery item by us counts as withdrawal.

5. An application to open insolvency proceedings against the buyer's assets entitles us to withdraw from the contract and to demand the immediate return of the delivery item.

6. If the contract is reversed for reasons for which the buyer is responsible, the seller is entitled to demand compensation for the reduction in value for the use and use of the item.

XI. flat rate of claims for damages

If Kronen Küchengeräte GmbH has the right to claim damages, Kronen Küchengeräte GmbH can claim 25% of the purchase price as damage without proof. Kronen Küchengeräte GmbH reserves the right to assert higher actual damages.
