RETENTION OF TITLE
The property of the sold goods is reserved to the seller until complete payment of the price and its accessories. The risks of the goods are transferred to the buyer as soon as the goods are delivered, as specified above, and during the entire period of ownership for the benefit of the seller.
The buyer shall pay the price of the goods in case of accidental or unintentional loss.
The purchaser shall not remove any packaging or labels from goods which exist in kind in his inventory and which have not yet been paid for.
Goods not yet in the possession of the buyer will be presumed to be those still unpaid. Consequently, the seller may take them back without prejudice to any action for damages for total or partial non-performance of the payment.
