Claims for damages are excluded regardless of the type of breach – including tortious acts – except in the case of willful or grossly negligent action. In the case of the culpable infringement of fundamental contractual obligations (cardinal duties), we do, however, accept liability for any act of negligence, but only to the value of typically foreseeable damages.

Claims arising from lost profit, saved expenditure, claims for damages on the part of third parties, or any other indirect consequential loss cannot be asserted unless a quality feature guaranteed by us has the sole aim of protecting the customer from damages of this kind.

The liability restrictions and exclusions in the sentences above not apply to claims arising from malicious behavior on the part of the seller or to liability for guaranteed quality features, claims based on product liability law, and damages arising from death, injury, or damage to health. The above liability disclaimer also applies to our staff, employees, representatives and subcontractors.
