(iii) njen podpis in izvajanje poroštva nista v nasprotju z ustavo ali katerim koli predpisom, ki se nanaša na poroštvo;
(iv) se v celoti zaveda splošnega finančnega položaja kreditojemalke in ima dovolj informacij za njegovo ocenitev ter da obstoj in ohranitev drugih jamstev nista temeljni pogoj za odločitev (condition essentielle et déterminante) poroka, da sklene to pogodbo;
(v) se proti njemu niso začeli oziroma, kolikor mu je znano, se ne pripravljajo nobeni sodni, arbitražni ali upravni postopki, ki vplivajo ali bi, če se ugotovi nasprotno, zelo verjetno imeli pomemben negativen vpliv ali bi lahko vplivali na njegovo sposobnost izpolnjevanja obveznosti iz poroštva;
(vi) bodo v skladu z njegovo zakonodajo vse terjatve banke do njega po tej poroštveni pogodbi obravnavane najmanj pari passu s terjatvami vseh njegovih drugih nezavarovanih upnikov, razen tistih, katerih terjatve imajo prednost zaradi stečaja, plačilne nesposobnosti, likvidacije ali drugih predpisov, ki se splošno uporabljajo, in
(vii) njegove obveznosti po tem poroštvu ali v zvezi z njim ustvarjajo pravno veljavne in zavezujoče obveznosti ter so zoper njega izvršljive v skladu s pogoji poroštva. 
Da bi se izognili dvomu, so zgoraj navedene izjave, jamstva in zaveze trajne ter morajo zato ostati resnične in točne tako dolgo, dokler velja to poroštvo. 
 
3. ČLEN 
Uveljavitev poroštva 
3.01
Banka lahko pozove poroka in uveljavi poroštvo, če kreditojemalka ne izpolni vseh obveznosti ali dela obveznosti, za katere porok jamči v skladu s členom 2.01 te pogodbe, in sicer z izdajo zahtevka po tej poroštveni pogodbi, potem ko je skladno s finančno pogodbo od kreditojemalke že zahtevala zadevno plačilo. Zahtevku mora biti priložen dokaz o taki zahtevi. Zahtevek mora biti pisen z navedbo, da kreditojemalka ni izvrševala ali izpolnila svoje plačilne obveznosti iz finančne pogodbe za vse zajamčene zneske ali njihov del, bodisi glede dneva plačila bodisi glede zahteve po predčasnem poplačilu ali kako drugače, v njem pa se opredeli tudi dolgovani znesek v skladu s poroštvom. Zahtevek (skupaj s prilogami) šteje kot trden dokaz. 
 
Obveznost poroka za predčasno poplačilo celega ali dela črpanega kredita po finančni pogodbi učinkuje, ko banka sporoči zahtevo za tako predčasno poplačilo; da se izognemo dvomom, to velja tudi za primere, ko so proti kreditojemalki sproženi kakršni koli postopki (razen postopkov v zvezi z veljavnostjo katere koli njene denarne obveznosti iz finančne pogodbe), ki bodo po vsej verjetnosti vplivali na plačilne obveznosti kreditojemalke do banke po finančni pogodbi. 
Poroštvo iz te poroštvene pogodbe ostane v polni veljavi, vse dokler zajamčeni zneski niso v celoti in brezpogojno plačani oziroma niso več dolgovani. 
3.02
Porokovo plačilo zapade petnajsti (15.) delovni dan po datumu zahtevka. 
V tej poroštveni pogodbi »delovni dan« pomeni dan, ko so banke v Luxembourgu in Ljubljani odprte za poslovanje.
3.03
Porok se zavezuje, da bo samo na podlagi zahtevka banki plačal dolgovane zneske, vse do zneska iz člena 2.01, in sicer brez omejitev, odbitkov in pogojev in ne da bi banka morala poleg razloga za poziv po tem poroštvu še posebej utemeljiti svoj zahtevek, ter izrecno razrešuje banko kakršnih koli obveznosti pošiljanja predhodnega uradnega obvestila in/ali formalnosti, ki vključujejo ugovor zaradi neplačevanja.
3.04
Če banka poda zahtevek, ima porok pravico pod pogoji iz finančne pogodbe takoj izpolniti vse denarne obveznosti kreditojemalke, ki so takrat še neizpolnjene (vključno, med drugim, odškodnine, kot je na primer odškodnina iz 10. člena finančne pogodbe). 
 
3.05
Vsa plačila poroka iz poroštva za enak znesek zmanjšajo vsoto, ki jo kreditojemalka dolguje banki. 
4. ČLEN 
Obseg solidarnega poroštva 
4.01
Porok se nepreklicno in brezpogojno odreka pravici do ugovora (razen v zvezi z veljavnostjo katere koli denarne obveznosti kreditojemalke iz finančne pogodbe), pravici do razdelitve in pravici zahtevati rubež ali prodajo po 2021. oziroma 2026. členu luksemburškega Civilnega zakonika (v nadaljevanju »civilni zakonik«) ter pravici do regresa pred plačilom po 2032. in 2039. členu civilnega zakonika. Nadalje se porok odreka pravici po 2037. členu civilnega zakonika, na podlagi katerega je porok prost vsakršne obveznosti, če postane subrogacija pravic in zavarovanj upnika v prid poroku nemogoča zaradi ravnanja upnika.
 
4.02
Dokler vsi denarni zneski, ki jih kreditojemalka dolguje, niso nepreklicno in brezpogojno plačani banki in noben znesek ni več dolgovan, se porok nepreklicno in izrecno odpoveduje regresom, pravicam, ukrepom in zahtevkom (da ne bi bilo dvoma, vključno s pobotom ali začasnimi ukrepi, kot je »saisie-arrêt conservatoire«), ki bi jih na podlagi subrogacije ali neposredno ali kakor koli drugače imel do kreditojemalke po uveljavitvi poroštva s kakršnimi koli sredstvi (zlasti vključno in ne samo z regresno pravico, ki bi jo porok imel zoper tak subjekt pod pogoji 2028. in naslednjih členov civilnega zakonika, in s pravicami poroka po 1253., 1271. in naslednjih členih ter 2039. členu civilnega zakonika).
 
4.03
Porok se nepreklicno odreka vsakršnemu ugovoru ali izjemam po zakonu (razen v zvezi z veljavnostjo katere koli denarne obveznosti kreditojemalke iz finančne pogodbe) v zvezi s popolnim ali delnim izvajanjem te poroštvene pogodbe ter zavračanju ali odlaganju izpolnjevanja svojih obveznosti iz poroštva in/ali katerih koli plačil po poroštvu. Porok se zavezuje, da bo izpolnil svoje obveznosti po vsakem izdanem zahtevku banke v skladu s členom 3.01. Še zlasti se porok zaradi svoje koristi ne sme sklicevati na prenovitve, širitve ali podaljšanja finančne pogodbe ali spremembe finančne pogodbe v skladu z določbami 8. člena ali na neveljavnost, nepravilnost, neučinkovitost ali neizvršljivost katere koli določbe finančne pogodbe in tudi ne na spremembo statuta kreditojemalke, vključno v primeru združitve ali delitve. Banka ni dolžna dokazovati, da je sprožila kak postopek proti kreditojemalki. 
 
 
4.04
Če sodišče razglasi finančno pogodbo za neveljavno, porok potrjuje, da pod enakimi pogoji, kot so navedeni zgoraj, ostaja zavezan kot porok za vse finančne in denarne obveznosti, za katere kreditojemalka po taki razglasitvi še vedno odgovarja banki. 
4.05
Če je plačilo kreditojemalke banki ali plačilo v njenem imenu neveljavno iz kakršnega koli razloga (razen zaradi neveljavnosti katere koli denarne obveznosti kreditojemalke iz finančne pogodbe), vključno med drugim zaradi poslovne nesposobnosti osebe, ki je izvedla plačilo, se porok odpoveduje pravici do sklicevanja na to dejstvo, zato da bi ugovarjal zahtevku banke za plačilo. 
4.06 
Poroštvo velja poleg ostalih pravic banke, ki jih ta ima oziroma bi jih lahko imela do kreditojemalke ali katerega koli drugega subjekta, ki postane pravni in/ali univerzalni naslednik kreditojemalke v povezavi s transakcijami, predvidenimi v okviru finančne pogodbe, ali do poroka.
4.07
Porok sprejema in potrjuje, da banki pred zahtevkom v okviru poroštva ne bo treba začeti postopka ali uveljaviti kakršnih koli pravic zoper kreditojemalko ali kateri koli drugi subjekt, ki postane pravni in/ali univerzalni naslednik kreditojemalke v povezavi s transakcijami, predvidenimi v okviru finančne pogodbe.
5. ČLEN 
Vrnitev v prejšnje stanje in neveljavna plačila 
5.01
Kakršna koli poravnava ali odpust, ki ga banka da poroku v zvezi z izpolnjevanjem njegovih obveznosti po tej poroštveni pogodbi, ali kakršen koli dogovor, sklenjen med banko in porokom v zvezi z njo, je ničen in se šteje, da je bil vedno ničen, če se za dejanje, zaradi katerega je banka poroku priznala tako poravnavo ali odpust ali je sklenila tak dogovor, naknadno ugotovi, da je neveljavno zaradi katere koli zakonske določbe oziroma njenega izvajanja. To posledično ne omejuje ali ne vpliva na pravico banke, da kadar koli predloži zahtevek in izterja od poroka celoten znesek po tej poroštveni pogodbi. 
5.02
Če plačilo banki v okviru zajamčenega zneska ni veljavno, je zadržano, odpoklicano ali preklicano oziroma mora biti vrnjeno zaradi izvajanja zakonskih določb ali odločitev v zvezi s plačilno nesposobnostjo, likvidacijo ali prisilno upravo (ali drugim podobnim postopkom) subjekta, ki je plačal tak znesek, se za namene te poroštvene pogodbe šteje, da tak znesek ni bil plačan in da ga porok še dolguje. 
 
6. ČLEN 
Subrogacija (prehod pravic) 
Ko porok izvede plačilo banki in če je uveljavil svoje pravice iz člena 3.03, nanj v obsegu takega plačila preidejo pravice in ukrepi, ki jih ima banka do kreditojemalke v zvezi s tem plačilom; pravice do subrogacije ni mogoče uveljavljati v škodo banke. Porok se zavezuje, da ne bo kakor koli ukrepal proti kreditojemalki, dokler ima banka terjatev do nje.
7. ČLEN 
Obveščanje 
7.01
Porok takoj obvesti banko o vsakem dejstvu ali dogodku, ki bi lahko vplival na izpolnjevanje njegovih obveznosti po tej poroštveni pogodbi.
7.02
Porok obvesti banko o dokončanju postopkov, ki so v Republiki Sloveniji potrebni za začetek veljavnosti poroštvene pogodbe. 
8. ČLEN 
Spremembe finančne pogodbe 
8.01
Banka lahko soglaša s kakršno koli spremembo finančne pogodbe, s katero se izboljšuje ali krepi položaj banke v razmerju do kreditojemalke, ne da bi s tem povečala obveznosti poroka; o vsaki taki spremembi uradno obvesti poroka. 
8.02
Zavse druge spremembe finančne pogodbe je potrebno predhodno pisno soglasje poroka, ki ga ta ne sme zavrniti, razen če utemeljeno domneva, da bi se njegove obveznosti zaradi tega bistveno povečale ali razširile.
9. ČLEN 
Davki, druge dajatve in stroški 
Davki ali druge dajatve ter sodni in drugi stroški, ki nastanejo pri sklepanju ali izvajanju te poroštvene pogodbe, bremenijo poroka. Porok plačila po tej pogodbi izvaja brez vsakršnega odbitka ali zmanjšanja zaradi davkov ali drugih dajatev.
10. ČLEN

10.05
Priuveljavljanju pravic, ki izhajajo iz te poroštvene pogodbe, je potrdilo banke o vsakem znesku, dolgovanem banki po tej poroštveni pogodbi, dokaz prima facie o takem znesku.

10.08

Če se odbitek davka zahteva po zakonodaji, se znesek dolgovanega plačila poveča na znesek, ki (po odbitku davka) predstavlja znesek, enak plačilu, ki bi bilo dolgovano, če odbitek davka ne bi bil zahtevan.
10.09
O vseh spremembah in dopolnitvah te pogodbe morata predhodno pisno soglašati banka in porok. 
10.10
Če je katera koli določba te pogodbe neveljavna oziroma neizvršljiva, vendar pa neveljavnost oziroma neizvršljivost take določbe ne pomeni bistvenega posega v siceršnji namen in smisel preostanka te pogodbe, ta neveljavnost oziroma neizvršljivost nikakor ne vpliva na veljavnost oziroma izvršljivost katere koli druge določbe v pogodbi, razen na neveljavne oziroma neizvršljive določbe.
