(4) If the purchaser is an entrepreneur, the risk and danger of shipping will pass as soon as the goods have been handed over to the logistics cooperation partner we commissioned.
(5) If the customer is an entrepreneur, we reserve the right to determine a new reasonable delivery period after prompt notification of the customer in the case that we cannot comply with a delivery period for reasons for which we are not responsible. If the ordered article is unavailable also within this new delivery period, we will be entitled to withdraw from the contract. Any consideration already paid will be reimbursed without undue delay.
§5 Retention of Title
(1) If the customer is a consumer, we retain title to the goods until full payment of the purchase price.
(2) If the customer is an entrepreneur, we retain title to the goods until full payment of all receivables under the ongoing business relationship. If the value of the retained goods exceeds the receivables under the ongoing business relationship by 10%, we will insofar be obliged to release the retained goods.
(3) If the customer is an entrepreneur, he is entitled to resell the goods in the ordinary course of business. The entrepreneur already here and now assigns to us all claims against a third party accruing to it from the resale, in the amount invoiced. We accept this assignment. After the assignment, the entrepreneur is entitled to collect the receivables. We reserve the right to collect the receivables ourselves as soon as the entrepreneur does not duly comply with its payment obligations and enters into default. The treatment and processing of the goods by the entrepreneur will at all times be on our behalf. If the goods are processed by the entrepreneur, we will acquire co-ownership in the new object in proportion to the value of the goods we delivered. The same applies if entrepreneurs process or mix the goods with other items not belonging to us.
(1) In the case of consumers, the statutory warranty regulations apply.

§7 Limitation of Liability
We exclude liability for any damage caused by slight negligence, unless these result from a breach of essential contractual obligations whose proper fulfilment enables the performance of the contract in the first place and in respect of which the purchaser may regularly expect compliance, which relate to guarantees on the quality of the purchase object, or damage resulting from an injury to life, body or health, or refer to claims under the Product Liability Act. The same applies to any breach of duty on the part of our vicarious agents. If any essential contractual obligation is breached liability shall in case of slight negligence be limited to the damage typically associated with the contract and foreseeable.
