§ 7 Liability

(1) Subject to the following exceptions, our liability for contractual breaches of duty and for tort is limited to intent or gross negligence.

(2) We shall have unlimited liability for slight negligence in the event of injury to life, body or health or in the event of breach of a material contractual obligation.

A material contractual obligation is one whose fulfilment is essential for the proper execution of the contract, whose violation endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract and on whose compliance you may regularly rely. This includes in particular our obligation to take action and to fulfil the contractually owed performance, which is described in § 3.

If you do not comply with this, this will of course have no effect on your statutory warranty claims.

§ 10 Final provisions

(1) German law shall apply. In the case of consumers, this choice of law shall only apply insofar as the protection granted by mandatory provisions of the law of the state of the consumer’s habitual residence is not thereby withdrawn (principle of favourability).

(2) The provisions of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods are expressly not applicable.
