10.2 If you place your order with us as a business , under our contractual liability for damages under clauses 10.2 to 10.8 the following applies:
10.2.1 If the claims are based on an intentional breach of duty by us, our representatives or our agents, we are liable for damages in accordance with the statutory provisions set by the federal republic of Germany. If the claims are based on a grossly negligent breach of duty by us or our representatives or our agents, liability is limited to foreseeable, typically occurring damages.
10.2.2 If we, our representatives or our agents have culpably breached an obligation whose fulfillment enables the proper execution of the contract in the first place, whose violation endangers the achievement of the purpose of the contract and whose compliance the customer relies on regularly -As far as the liability can be excluded or limited to legal provisions - liability is limited to foreseeable, typically occurring damage.
10.2.3 Unless otherwise specified under sections 10.2.1 and 10.2.2, our liability for damages is excluded. The same clause applies, if we as suppliers are made aware of recourse (under German law § 478 BGB).
10.3 The exclusion and limitation of liability under clause 10.2 shall also apply to other claims, in particular tortious claims or claims for the reimbursement of futile expenditure instead of the service.
10.4 The disclaimers and limitations under Section 10.2 do not apply to any existing claims under Article §§ 1,4 of the Product Liability Act (“Produkthaftungsgesetz”) or culpable injury to life, body or health. Neither do the disclaimers and limitations under section 10.2 apply if we have assumed a warranty for the quality of our goods and services or have taken a procurement risk and the warranty claim or the procurement risk have materialized.
10.5 Liability arising from the assumption of a procurement risk only applies to us if we have explicitly accepted the procurement risk in writing.
10.6 Unless the limitation of liability according to section 10.2 corresponds to the claims of manufacturer liability according to German law (§ 823 BGB) occurs, our liability is limited to the replacement services of the insurance. If this service is not covered or not covered completely, we are liable to account for the insured sum. This clause does not apply to culpable injury to life, limb or health.
