2.5 If we do not always require strict compliance with these conditions, this does not mean that the provisions thereof do not apply, or that we would in any way lose the right to require strict compliance with the provisions of these conditions in other cases.

Article 3: Conclusion
3.1 The agreement shall be concluded, insofar as applicable within the term set by us, at the moment of receipt by us of a written acceptance of an offer. If the other party makes an offer and/or gives an order, at the moment that we have approved and confirmed the offer and/or the order in writing or when we have started to execute the order.
3.2 If the other party has accepted the offer electronically, the agreement shall only be concluded after we have approved and confirmed it in writing. As long as the receipt of this acceptance has not been confirmed and approved by us in writing, the contract shall not yet have been concluded.

Article 5: Guarantee, exclusion of liability
5.1 Used machines, vehicles and parts are sold without any form of warranty and in a condition as seen by the other party on the website or at the sales location and approved by the other party. We are not liable for any hidden or visible defects.  This exclusion of liability also includes liability for consequential damage and total or partial loss of the sold item as a result of the effect of hidden defects present at the time of delivery, for example, for a major mechanical damage or destructive fire as a result of a relatively minor hidden defect such as a minimal leaking fuel supply.  On used machines, vehicles and/or parts a warranty is only given if and insofar as specifically stated in the sales agreement.
5.2 If the other party invokes the guarantee provided by us in the relevant sales agreement or makes a claim, we shall assess the guarantee or complaint and, if necessary, settle it with due observance of what is stipulated in the agreement in this regard.

Article 6: Machine and Vehicle History
6.1 When recommending Items, we generally base ourselves on any information provided by third parties and on the external condition of the Items. In principle, we do not check this information provided to us by third parties for correctness and we do not carry out any (technical) research. For example, we do not contact dealers to inquire about the maintenance history of a machine and we do not disassemble parts to investigate the condition of a machine.  The other party cannot derive any rights from errors or obvious mistakes in the information provided by us on this basis (on our website).
6.2 The other party shall have the right to attempt on its own initiative to ascertain the above-mentioned details of machine(s) and vehicle(s). We shall, if desired, lend our cooperation in this respect. The costs of this investigation shall be for the account of the other party.


Article 7: Retention of title
7.1 Delivery shall take place subject to retention of title. The ownership of the products and/or machines and/or vehicles, notwithstanding the actual delivery, shall only be transferred to the other party after the latter has paid all claims from us relating to the consideration for the products delivered or to be delivered by us to the other party by virtue of the agreement, or any similar agreement, or activities carried out or to be carried out for the benefit of the other party by virtue of such an agreement, as well as in respect of the claims for failure to perform such agreements.

Article 8: Dissolution
8. 1 If the other party fails to meet any (payment) obligation arising from any agreement concluded with us, or fails to do so in time or properly, despite a summons stating a reasonable period, as well as in the event of a suspension of payment, application for a moratorium, bankruptcy, placement under guardianship or liquidation of the other party's business, we shall be entitled without notice of default and without judicial intervention to dissolve the agreement or a part thereof, whereby the entire down-payment by way of cancellation fee shall be retained and not refunded, without prejudice to our right to claim additional compensation if the costs incurred (including delivery, storage, insurance and storage costs) exceed the down-payment amount.
8.2 In cases where the previous article does not (yet) provide a basis to dissolve a contract or a part thereof, we shall be entitled to dissolve the contract or a part thereof without notice of default and without judicial intervention until the moment the goods and/or services in question have been delivered to the other party.  If we exercise this right, we will not owe the other party any compensation for this and we will not be liable to pay the other party any damages for this reason.

Article 9: Suspension and Right of Retention
9.1 We shall be entitled to suspend our performance (including future partial deliveries) if the other party fails to meet one or more of its obligations or if circumstances brought to our knowledge give us good reason to fear that the other party will fail to meet its obligations, except insofar as mandatory provisions prohibit us from doing so.
9.2 We shall be entitled to exercise the right of retention in respect of all the other party's goods to which the execution of the agreement relates and which we actually have in our possession within the framework of the agreement, if the other party fails to fulfil the obligations connected with the execution of the agreement, or other agreements concluded with the other party, wholly or in part.
9.3 We shall be entitled to recover from the other party any damage (including loss of interest) that we have suffered and the costs that we have had to incur in connection with the care relating to the goods that we actually have in our possession (including storage costs).

10.7 If in our opinion the machine and/or vehicle to be traded in is no longer in the same condition as at the time of the conclusion of the agreement at the time that we actually have the disposal of that machine and/or vehicle, we are entitled to refuse the trade-in and to demand payment of the agreed purchase price of the machine and/or vehicle, or to revaluate the machine and/or vehicle to be traded in and to take the value at that time into consideration.
10.8 If in our opinion the machine and/or vehicle to be traded in has defects which could only have been discovered after the actual provision of the machine and/or vehicle, but which according to objective standards were already present at the time of the conclusion of the agreement, the other party shall be obliged to compensate us for the damage resulting from this. Damage shall be understood to mean a reduction in the assessed value.

Such circumstances constituting force majeure shall in any case apply: - if the production or supply of a certain item is discontinued; - if we have sold the other party a machine and/or vehicle that still has to be exchanged and this machine and/or vehicle cannot be delivered to the other party due to circumstances for which we are not responsible; - loss, damage and/or delay during and by transport, extreme absence through illness of personnel, actions/measures at customs including (temporary) closure of certain geographical areas, fire, theft and other serious disruptions in our company or at our supplier(s).

These activities are performed at the expense and risk of the other party. Nor shall we be liable for damage resulting from inaccuracies in free advice.


Article 13: Deviating clauses

On the basis of this processing, we can execute the contract, fulfill warranty obligations towards the other party, provide optimal service, provide the other party with timely product information and personalized offers. If it concerns the processing of personal data for the purpose of direct mailing, any objection lodged with us by the other party shall be honored.
