4.1 Torqeedo bears unlimited liability for statutory liability regardless of fault (e.g. arising from warranty or according to the Product Liability Act – ProdHaftG) as well as in the case of personal damage (injury to life, body or health). Torqeedo also bears unlimited liability for intent and gross negligence. In the case of slight negligence, Torqeedo will only be liable for the breach of cardinal obligations. Cardinal obligations are deemed to be those obligations that must be met towards the purchaser in accordance with the spirit and purpose of the actual contract or whose fulfilment is essential for the proper execution of the contract and on whose observance the purchaser may normally rely. However, in such cases Torqeedo will not be liable for indirect or unforeseeable damage, for consequential damage, for loss of profit or savings that do not materialise. For the rest, any liability on the part of Torqeedo for slight negligence is excluded. This limitation of liability also extends to Torqeedo's legal representatives, employees, salaried staff and agents.
The following applies if you are a businessperson: In the case of a breach of cardinal obligations and only slightly negligent behaviour on the part of Torqeedo, Torqeedo's liability will be limited to three times the net invoice amount of the goods or services causing the damage.
4.2 Where the website and associated services contain third-party information or links to third-party Internet pages, this occurs exclusively as an additional service for users. Torqeedo is not responsible for content that they may contain and makes no claim that such content is its own. Torqeedo assumes no liability for damage that may arise in connection with accessing or using the contents of third-party Internet sites. This also applies in the event that Torqeedo is linked to a third-party site by means of a "hyperlink" without its knowledge.
4.3 The aforementioned liability provisions apply to all contractual and non-contractual claims that may result from this agreement or the use of Torqeedo's websites and services.
