Any claims by the other party to the insurers of the goods within the framework of the afore mentioned insurance policies shall be pledged to us by the other party on our demand, according to the method specified in Article 3:239 of the Civil Code, as an additional security for our claims against the other party.
8. In the event that the other party fails to comply with its obligations to pay or gives us good cause to believe that it will fail to fulfil such obligations, we shall have the right to repossess the goods delivered under retention of title.
